How Dry I.D.

first_imgGreg Schirf of Wasatch Brewery is riding the wave of publicity over the intelligent design controversy in Utah.  He came out with a new “intelligently designed” beer: Evolution Amber Ale.  The press release expresses his alarm over the alleged erosion of separation of church and state, but how serious (or sober) he was may be a matter of dispute:To critics who accuse him of just being up to the same old publicity stunts, the often times contentious brewmeister responds, “Perhaps, but we are really trying to live up to our mission statement, ‘Craft the finest ales and lagers possible.  Achieve a commercial profitability while maintaining the highest level of social responsibility.  And have as much fun as we can legally get away with.’”Previous stunts included marketing a beer as the Gold Medal winning “unofficial” Amber Ale of the 2002 Winter Olympics.If this were intelligently designed product, why didn’t they show the fully-evolved primate with a beer belly?  This guy clearly didn’t get his physique drinking Evolution Amber Ale, and if he were fully evolved, he would be sitting in the pose of Rodin’s Thinker, not pumping glass.    Thinking of that, it would be fun to see the Discovery Institute donate truckloads of this stuff to the NCSE in a goodwill gesture.  While they’re getting stoned, the real thinkers, fully clothed and in their right minds, could be attending school board meetings, campaigning, writing books and forming IDEA clubs – whatever they can do to enhance the Darwin Party’s morning hangover experience.    Come morning, ID supporters could even offer them free therapy.  They could tell them that the quickest way out of a hangover is more Evolution Amber Ale.  It not only smothers the depression, they can argue, but enhances mutagenesis, providing more raw material for evolution.  This is the way to kill a strife with kindness.(Visited 8 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

IPL 2017, KKR vs GL Highlights: This is how Suresh Raina orchestrated Gujarat’s win over Kolkata

first_imgThis is how Gujarat beat Kolkata in Kolkata by four wickets. (SCORECARD | POINTS TABLE)23.53 IST: Kolkata were outplayed as they came out to bowl. They got wickets but not when it was really needed. The onslaught in the Powerplay and then the master stroke from Suresh Raina proved too much for them. Another place where they faltered was that they didn’t put enough runs on the board, considering what a flying start Sunil Narine gave them. Robin Uthappa built on that but the middle order failed to capitalize and ultimately, the hosts ended up with a total which wasn’t enough.23.42 IST: A comfortable win for Gujarat, which isn’t something you’ve heard quite often this season. And to sweeten it even more, they’ve beaten Kolkata away from home. A target was a fairly stiff one but a good start from their openers set it all up. There was a slight interruptions from the rain, but then the skipper took it upon himself and scored a blistering 84. He got out just before the end but he had gotten his team in a comfortable position. Jadeja and Faulkner added the finishing touches and saw their side home.23.48 IST: FOUR! That’s it and Gujarat have sealed it! Length delivery outside off, Jadeja slashes hard at it and gets it through the point region for a boundary. GUJARAT WIN BY FOUR WICKETS TO SPARE!23.41 IST: OUT! Soft dismissal! Short delivery spinning away, Suresh Raina tries to cut it. Mistimes it towards the cover-point. Pandey runs to his left and takes a good catch. A simply superb comes to an end. Maybe too late for Kolkata! Kuldeep gets Raina for 84. GL 180/6. Need 8 runs to win. Jadeja 15*advertisement23:40 IST: SIX! Gone, gone, goner! Tossed up outside leg, Raina gets low under it and smokes that into the stands.23.39 IST: Kuldeep continues.23.38 IST: 17 gone. GL 171/5. Need 17 runs to win. Raina 77*, Jadeja 13*23.37 IST: SIX! Delightful! Fuller into the pads, Raina flicks it beautifully over the square leg region for a maximum.23.35 IST: FOUR! Simply superb! Fuller delivery just outside off, Raina stays in his crease, uses the pace of the bowler and squirts it past the point region for a boundary.23.34 IST: FOUR! Powerful! Length delivery outside off, Raina smacks that down the ground through the mid off region for a boundary.23.34 IST: Nathan Coulter-Nile back on.23.31 IST: 16 gone and it’s time for the strategic time-out. GL 155/5. Still need 33 runs to win. Raina 62*, Jadeja 12*23.29 IST: Dropped and six! Floated around off, Jadeja goes for the biggie. Does not time that well as he goes downtown. The ball flies towards the long on fielder. Suryakumar Yadav pouches it with a jump, sees him crossing the rope so throws the back in play. Catches the ball again and then indicates it as a six. That was weird right. Replays show that when he jumped back, his feet had made contact with the ropes. Unlucky guy and Jadeja is rewarded with a maximum.23.28 IST: Sunil Narine comes back on.23.27 IST: 15 gone. GL 146/5. Still need 42 runs to win. Raina 61*, Jadeja 4*23.26 IST: FOUR! That’s elegant! Length delivery outside off, Raina cuts it past the diving point fielder for a boundary.23.24 IST: SIX! That’s massive! Fuller delivery outside off, Raina stays in his crease and smokes that over the mid-wicket region for a biggie.23.23 IST: Fifty! Raina has finally looked in a good touch after some matches and he will look to make it count today. Eased down to long off for a single. GL 132/4 after 14 overs. Still need 56 runs to win vs KKR (187/5) Raina 49*, Jadeja 3*23.22 IST: FOUR! Lucky Raina! Floated up beautifully in the line of the stumps, Raina tries to play it really straight. Gets beaten and gets an inside edge which whizzes past the stumps for a boundary. Kuldeep is really unlucky there.23.20 IST: Kuldeep to continue.23.19 IST: 13 gone. GL 124/5. Still need 64 runs to win. Raina 43*, Jadeja 1*23.18 IST: Ravindra Jadeja comes out to bat.23.16 IST: OUT! Umesh, you beauty! Bowled ’em! Fuller and straighter into the stumps at 141 kmph, the ball nips back a bit. Smith cannot get his bat down in time as he just gets a faint edge which goes onto his pads and then clobbers into the stumps. Smith has to walk back to the pavilion. GL 122/5 from 12.4 overs. Still need 66 runs to win. Raina 42*23.14 IST: Umesh Yadav into the attack.23.13 IST: 12 gone. GL 119/4. Still need 69 runs to win. Raina 40*, Smith 4*23.12 IST: FOUR! Straightaway into the action! Floated in the line of the stumps, Smith sits down and slog sweeps it through the mid-wicket region for a boundary.advertisement23.12 IST: Dwane Smith comes out to bat.23.11 IST: OUT! Kuldeep Yadav strikes! Tossed up down the leg side this time, Ishan Kishan sits down and plays the sweep shot aerially. Manages to hit straight towards the fielder at deep backward square leg. Umesh Yadav gets under it and takes a fine catch. Ishan’s struggle in the middle finally ends.  GL 115/4 from 11.4 overs. Still need 73 runs to win. Raina 40*23.10 IST: FOUR! Deft! Quicker through the air, around off. Raina waits for it and plays it really fine past the keeper for a boundary.23.09 IST: GL 110/3 after 11 overs. Still need 78 runs to win.23.08 IST: FOUR! Quick to react and Raina gets the reward! Sprayed into the pads, Raina makes room and pulls it powerfully through the fine leg region for a boundary.23.07 IST: FOUR! Brilliant shot! Floated outside off, Raina plays the inside out with perfection, clers the cover region and the ball races away to the boundary.23.05 IST: Just three runs off the over. GL 99/3 from 10 overs. Need 89 runs to win. Raian 25*, Kishan 3*23.03 IST: Kuldeep Yadav into the attack.23.00 IST: Nine overs gone and it’s time for the strategic time-out. GL 96/3. Still need 92 runs to win. Raina 23*, Kishan 2*22.57 IST: DROPPED AND SIX! The Gujarat skipper survives a scare. Hangs back to this back of a length ball, picks it up neatly and pulls it aerially towards fine leg. Yusuf Pathan the man there runs to his right and sticks his hand out. Gets to it but can’t hold on to it. It goes off it and over the rope for a biggie.22.57 IST: FOUR! Good placement from Raina. He backs away, makes some decent room for himself and lofts it over extra cover. The fielder out in the deep doesn’t stand a chance of stopping that one.22.57 IST: Woakes to continue.22.56 IST: Eight overs gone. GL 83/3. Still need 105 runs to win. Raina 11*, Kishan 1*22.54 IST: OUT! Leading edge and taken! Dinesh Karthik looking to go over on the leg side has spooned this straight to Gautam Gambhir at short extra cover. It was a length ball on off, Karthik closed the face too early and got a leading edge the Kolkata skipper who took a very good diving catch to his left. Coulter-Nile is continuing with his good run.22.50 IST: Coulter-Nile back on.22.49 IST: Seven overs gone. GL 79/2. Still need 109 runs to win. Raina 10*, Karthik 1*22.48 IST: FOUR! Can’t bowl there to Suresh Raina. It’s short and wide outside off, the southpaw slaps this square past the diving point fielder to send it across the boundary line.22:47 IST: OUT! WOAKES STRIKES IN HIS VERY FIRST OVER! And it’s a big breakthrough, the dangerous McCullum departs. Full on the stumps, Brendon McCullum makes room and carves it over cover-point. Doesn’t get the distance on this and it’s straight into the hands of Manish Pandey out in the deep. He holds on to it and now, Gujarat have lost both their opener. Maybe the break has done the hosts some good.advertisement22.46 IST: Chris Woakes into the attack.22.42 IST: FOUR! Good shot! Floated around leg, McCullum sweeps it through the square leg region for a boundary.22.38 IST: The players are making their way out to the middle after the rain interruption. No overs have been lost.22.30 IST: Play to resume at 10.40 pm. 22.20 IST: Good news! The rain has stopped and the covers are coming off.22.13 IST: The Gujarat Lions are ahead by 21 runs in the D/L method and will win the match if there’s no further play.22.12 IST: Rain stops play. GL 62/1 after five overs. McCullum 27*, Raina 2*22.10 IST: Five overs gone. GL 62/1. Still need 126 runs to win from 15 overs. McCullum 27*, Raina 2*22.09 IST: Dropped! Big chance gone begging, the reaction on Robin Uthappa’s face shows he knows that. For a change, Sunil Narine gives it some decent flight and bowls it around off, Raina is forward in defense but the ball takes the edge as it turns away. Goes off Uthappa’s gloves and behind to short third man.22.07 IST: Narine to continue.22.06 IST: FOUR! Another expensive over for Kolkata. Aaron Finch is there no more, but Brendon McCullum has taken over the charge and he’s letting it rip out there. Full ball from Coulter-Nile, McCullum makes room and squeezes it out over backward point for a boundary to end the over. GL 56/1 after four overs.22.05 IST: SIX! THAT’S A BIG HIT! Once Brendon McCullum hits something, it stays hit! Short and on middle and off, McCullum pulls this hard. Hits it with some much power that the ball clears the square leg boundary with utmost ease. The fielder there is only a mere spectator to this.22.05 IST: FOUR! Uses the pace well and dispatches the ball well. Length ball on off, McCullum makes room and cuts it hard. Beats the diving backward point fielder and the third man fielder as well who tries to cut it off. Boundary!22.03 IST: Suresh Raina walks out.22.02 IST: OUT! FINCH IS OUT OF HERE! Coulter-Nile strikes and this is some excellent bowling. Bowls another slower one, on the shorter side, Finch heaves it over square leg. Manish Pandey out in the deep runs to his right a bit and takes a good catch. A good start from Finch has come to an end. Finch departs for 31. GL 42/1. McCullum 8*22.02 IST: Gets away with the free-hit.22.01: NO BALL! 22:00 IST: Nathan Coulter-Nile into the attack.21.58 IST: 15 off the over. GL 39/0 after three overs. Finch 31*, McCullum 8*21.58 IST:  SIX! BAM! WHAT A HIT! Aaron Finch, you ripper! He properly gets underneath this one, it’s full in length and quite loopy, and launches it high and handsome over the long on boundary for a biggie. 15 runs have come in this over.21.57 IST: FOUR! Takes the aerial route once more and yet again, the result is the same. Aaron Finch goes back and gets it over the mid on fielder’s head for another boundary.21.56 IST: FOUR! Shorter in length from Shakib, it’s muscled over the mid on fielder. Clears the infield easily and that’ll be a boundary.21.56 IST: Shakib to continue.21.56 IST: FOUR! A big over for Gujarat, just the kind of start they need. 16 off the over. Finch stays back and punches it through the gap in the covers. The placement is brilliant as the ball races away to the boundary line.21.55 IST: SIX! That’s a meaty blow! Brilliant hit. Lands this on a driving length around off, Finch kneels down and slog sweeps it deep into the mid-wicket stands for a maximum.21.54 IST: FOUR! Finch gets into the act.21.54 IST: Sunil Narine to open the bowling with Shakib.21.53 IST: GL 9/0 after 1 over. Still need 179 runs to win. McCullum 8*, Finch 1*21.52 IST: FOUR! Shot. Touch short and it’s been punished. McCullum goes back and cuts it past the diving cover fielder for a boundary.21.51 IST: FOUR! Typical of Brendon McCullum to start things off in explosive fashion. It’s tossed up to him, McCullum hammers it straight back down the ground, past the bowler who sticks his right hand out and that rockets away to the boundary line.21.48 IST: Brendon McCullum and Aaron Finch to open for Gujarat while Shakib Al Hasan will open the bowling for Kolkata.21.42 IST: Can Uthappa’s 50 help Kolkata beat Gujarat?A good total on the board as #Uthappa steals the show with a crafty 7?2? along with a brilliant cameo from #Narine (4?2?). #AmiKKR #KKRvGL pic.twitter.com/i6unkP9NMW- KolkataKnightRiders (@KKRiders) April 21, 201721.39 IST: At one stage, Kolkata were looking to post a total in excess of 200 but once Gambhir departed, Pandey could not come out and start hitting from the first ball. Robin Uthappa scored a fifty but the Gujarat bowlers will be confident of chasing this total down. Suresh Raina was the pick of the bowlers for the visiting team. With such a powerful batting line-up, Gujarat will have their heads high and look forward to chase it down.21.36 IST: Another impressive batting performance from Kolkata. Sunil Narine and Gautam Gambhir opened the innings once again for the hosts. The former started really well and played a swashbuckling cameo where he smacked 42 off just 17 balls to give them the perfect start. Uthappa walked out next and just utilised the platform really well.21.32 IST: KKR finish on 187/5. Uthappa 72, Raina 1/11.#KKR have ended up with 187/5 in 20 overs. The Lions need 188 to win this. It’s time to chase this down. #GameMaariChhe #KKRvGL- The Gujarat Lions (@TheGujaratLions) April 21, 201721.30 IST: OUT! Full delivery aiming the base of off stump, Pathan drills it down towards long off. Suryakumar Yadav wanted the second and sets off. He’s halfway down the track but Pathan isn’t even looking. McCullum throws it to Karthik’s and he hits the stump from close range. Suryakumar can’t make it back in time and he’s gone. KKR 186/5. Yusuf 11*21.28 IST: OUT! BASIL, YOU BEAUTY! He’s kept at it and got the desired result. Full and straight on the stumps, Pandey looks to go across the line but misses and the ball goes on to hit the stumps. KKR 184/4. Yusuf 10*21.27 IST: FOUR! Cracking shot. Full toss outside off, Pandey cuts it away through the point region for a blazing boundary.21.26 IST: Thampi to bowl the last over.21.25 IST: 19 overs gone. KKR 180/3. Pandey 20*, Yusuf 10* 21.25 IST: FOUR! He can, he most definitely can! A poor ball from Praveen Kumar aids his cause as well. It’s a full toss on the pads, Pathan slogs it hard through the mid-wicket region for a boundary. 12 runs off the over.21.24 IST: FOUR! That misfield has cost Gujarat five runs. A team sport for a reason after all. Full outside off, Pathan lofts this excellently over extra cover. Nobody out there in the deep as the ball bounces across the rope. 8 off the over so far, can Pathan finish it off well?21.21 IST: OUT! UTHAPPA IS DISMISSED! But not before he’s played a scintillating knock. He’s done the damage here. Fuller around off from Praveen Kumar, Uthappa lofts it back down the ground. Brendon McCullum comes running to his left from long on and takes a good catch. The 55-run stand comes to an end. Uthappa departs for 72.  KKR 169/3 from 18.2 overs. Pandey 19*21.19 IST: Praveen Kumar to bowl the 19th.21.18 IST: 18 gone. KKR 168/2. Uthappa 72*, Pandey 18* 21.15 IST: SIX! Poor ball and that’s been dispatched! He’s not stopping at any cost here. Slower full toss on middle, Uthappa heaves this away hard. Connects well and it’s into the mid-wicket stands for half a dozen. 50 partnership comes up between Uthappa and Pandey.#Uthappa picks up the slower one from Thampi and the ball goes away into the stands. #DusKiDahaad #AmiKKR #KKRvGL pic.twitter.com/5CLz7dnF2F- KolkataKnightRiders (@KKRiders) April 21, 201721.15 IST: FOUR! Full and outside off from over the wicket, Robin Uthappa starts the over off in fantastic fashion. He leans ahead, opens himself up a bit and lofts it over extra cover for a boundary. The man out in the deep tried his best but couldn’t get to it.21.15 IST: Thampi continues.21.14 IST: 17 overs gone. Just five runs from the 17th. KKR154/2. Uthappa 61*, Pandey 15*21.11 IST: 150 comes up for KKR from 16.2 overs.21.10 IST: Faulkner back on.21.07 IST: End of 16 overs and it’s time for the strategic time-out. KKR 149/2.

Uthappa 52*, Pandey 11*21.02 IST: FOUR! Fifty for Robin Uthappa! He’s been immaculate since he’s come out to bat and has played a flawless knock so far. What a way to bring it up too. He moves across, kneels and scoops it over Dinesh Karthik’s head for a boundary.Playing in his 50th match for #KKR, #Uthappa scores a delightful 5?0? and looks in no mood to stop. #DusKiDahaad #AmiKKR #KKRvGL pic.twitter.com/JHiW2NtWyE- KolkataKnightRiders (@KKRiders) April 21, 201721.01 IST: FOUR!
