Garuda to require entry permits from Jakarta-bound passengers

first_imgPassengers can file a SIKM request via the Jakarta administration’s website at president director Irfan Setiaputra told that the new policy was in compliance with the Jakarta Gubernatorial Regulation No.47/2020 regarding the city’s entry and exit controls.Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan recently issued an order banning people from entering or leaving Jakarta, one of the cities in Indonesia hardest-hit by the virus, without prior approval.“We’re currently discussing compliance with the policy with other authorities,” Irfan said on Tuesday. National flag carrier Garuda Indonesia will require Jakarta-bound passengers to present an exit and entry permit (SIKM) for the city prior to boarding from Tuesday onward, as the country attempts to curb COVID-19 transmission while reopening the economy.All passengers who wish to board flights to Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta International Airport must also show medical letters from hospitals stating that they are COVID-19 negative based on a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test, according to a circular letter issued by the company on Tuesday.“We are announcing that all customers who wish to board a flight bound for Soekarno-Hatta [International Airport] must comply with the document requirements starting from May 26,” the letter reads. Garuda’s low-cost carrier subsidiary, Citilink, is also preparing to announce the same requirements for its passengers, the company’s president director Juliandra Nurtjahjo said.“If flight [schedules] resume under a ‘new normal’ on June 1 and the SIKM requirement is still in effect, we will comply with the policy,” Juliandra told who do not provide the two required documents must self-quarantine for 14 days in hotels selected by the government’s COVID-19 Task Force. The task force will not cover the accommodation costs during the quarantine period.The appointed hotels in the Indonesian capital are Novotel Gajahmada, Mercure Jakarta, Mercure Batavia, Pullman Central Park, Gran Mercure Kemayoran, Mercure Harmoni and Holiday Inn Jakarta Kemayoran.During the Idul Fitri celebrations on May 24, Garuda Indonesia operated 14 flights through Soekarno Hatta airport, with a maximum of 50 percent occupancy, as required by the government.“Most of our flights are operated below 50 percent capacity to ensure the safety of our passengers and to adhere with physical distancing rules,” Irfan said on Sunday in a press release.Topics :last_img read more

Sephaka names preliminary World Cup squad

first_img5 March 2014 Springbok Women’s coach Lawrence Sephaka on Tuesday announced a preliminary squad of 39 players for the IRB Women’s Rugby World Cup as he looks to put the building blocks in place for the international showpiece taking place in France from 1 to 17 August. The squad includes the 16 elite Springbok Women Sevens players based in Port Elizabeth, 11 players who featured in the 2010 IRB Rugby World Cup in London, and a number of up-and-coming players.Preparation time “We have five months to get the women ready for the Rugby World Cup, so it is important to name a preliminary squad who we could work with to ensure that their fitness levels and techniques are at the required level to compete successfully,” Sephaka said in a statement. “This squad features a healthy mix of youth and experience, which is encouraging for the future of women’s rugby, but also to achieve our goal of advancing to the knock- out stages, and hopefully winning the tournament. “The Sevens elite squad is training hard with coach Renfred Dazel and they have a few tournaments coming up in the next few months,” Sephaka added. “This will be beneficial for their match fitness and big match temperament. The other players have received their training programmes and have been working closely with the satellite coaches in their respective regions, which has involved a fair bit of individualised training, so our preparation is on track.” 2010 World Cup participants The players in the squad who participated in the 2010 Rugby World Cup include Zenay Jordaan, Lorinda Brown and Phumeza Gadu, who are all members of the elite Sevens squad, as well as stalwart Mandisa Williams, Fundiswa Plaatjie and Laurian Johannes. Powerful prop Asithandile Ntoyanto and back Tayla Kinsey, who made their test debuts last season in the Rugby World Cup qualifier against Uganda, were among a handful of new players who could feature in their first IRB Women’s Rugby World Cup. They were joined by forwards Rights Mkhari and Andrea Mentoor, and versatile player Shona-Leah Weston. The squad will be reduced to 26 players before the World Cup. Schedule The specialist 15-a-side players will continue their preparations for the World Cup in their satellite camps in the next few months, while the Sevens elite players will participate in the Hong Kong Invitational, an African Sevens series in Kenya, and the IRB Women’s World Sevens Series in Amsterdam in the next two months. The preliminary squad will then assemble in Pretoria for a training camp from 18 to 24 June. They will then travel to London and France for a World Cup warm-up tour, which will feature three matches, two against the Nomads in London, and one against World Cup hosts and pool competitors France. The squad will assemble again on 14 July for a two-week holding camp, with the World Cup squad set to depart for Paris on 27 July.

Ind vs NZ 1st Test Live Blog; Live cricket scores and commentary

first_imgAn emphatic innings and 115 runs win for India against the Kiwis here at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Uppal, Hyderabad, on Sunday. Score | PhotosThe star of the Indian batting was young Cheteshwar Pujara. His 159 helped India put on 438 runs. The New Zealand top order offered a bit more resistance as compared to their first innings, but it just wasn’t enough. A couple of LBW decisions went against them including that of a well set McCullum today morning. It will require a huge effort to make any sort of comeback in the second Test in Bangalore. R Ashwin scalped six wickets each in both innings, while his bowling partner left-rm spinner Pragyan Ojha took six wickets in the match.  FACTOID: Surprisingly, all the Indian bowlers took the same number of wicket in each innings. While Ashwin took six each, Ojha claim three each and paceman Umesh Yadav claimed one each in both innings.India vs New Zealand Day 4MS Dhoni: Congratulations to India U-19, Chand batted really well. As far as this match is concerned, Pujara batted well. It was getting difficult for the bowlers. We were also battling the weather. The bowlers bowled brilliantly. They did not give any lose deliveries. That made the difference. Brilliant catching in this game. ViruPa got a few good catches, so did Virat. We have done well in all the aspects in this game. It was important for Pujara as he was coming back from injury. He has a good temperament. He can bat for a long period and we can play around him. It was just a question of time. India were going to win it easily. The rain only delayed the inevitable. New Zealand have looked really flat. 12/85 stand the figures for R Ashwin. These are the best match figures for an Indian in Tests against New Zealand. Together the spin-twins Ojha and Ashwin have 18 Kiwi wickets. advertisementChris Martin, right handed bat, comes to the crease 4:04 pm | 79.2 overs: WICKET! INDIA WIN….Ashwin to Boult, out Caught by Sehwag!! 11th wicket in the match for Ashwin. Floated up outside off, Boult looks to push at it and gets a thick outside edge, carries to Sehwag at first slip who goes forward and takes it neatly. 4th catch in the match for Sehwag. He is enjoying himself out there. Boult c Sehwag b Ashwin 0(6) (NZ 164/10 in 79.2 overs)Trent Boult, right handed bat, comes to the crease 3:58 pm | 77.2 overs: WICKET! Ashwin to van Wyk, out Lbw!! 4th wicket for Ashwin. 10 wicket haul in the match. Flatter on middle, Wyk attempts the reverse sweep and misses, is hit right in front of middle stump as he is hit on the back pad. A bit too adventurous from the wicket-keeper batsman. van Wyk lbw b Ashwin 13(34) [4s-2] (NZ 164/9 in 77.2 overs) Trent Boult, right handed bat, comes to the crease 3:40 pm | 77.2 overs: WICKET! Ashwin to van Wyk, out Lbw!! 4th wicket for Ashwin. 10 wicket haul in the match. Flatter on middle, Wyk attempts the reverse sweep and misses, is hit right in front of middle stump as he is hit on the back pad. A bit too adventurous from the wicket-keeper batsman. van Wyk lbw b Ashwin 13(34) [4s-2] (NZ 160/8 in in 77.2 overs)3: 30 pm | 74.6 overs: WICKET! Ojha to Doug Bracewell, out Caught by Virat Kohli!! Third wicket for Ojha. He has bowled beautifully today. Floated up nicely outside off, Bracewell gets forward and edges it, Kohli at second slip dives forward and picks it up inches above the ground. 3 more to go. Doug Bracewell c Virat Kohli b Ojha 1(16). (NZ 148/7 in 74.6 overs)3:35 pm | 73.6 overs: Ashwin to Bracewell, no run, defended to the leg side to end the over. NZ are 147/6 at the stage.Day 4, FINAL SESSION15:20 pm | TEA: A fantastic session that for India. 54/5 is the score for the session and they can smell victory already. Umesh Yadav started the process with the wicket of McCullum and India continued to peg away with the spinners taking over. Williamson fought hard for his fifty but failed to carry on. It could all end soon after the break. Join us for the same in just a short while. (NZ 146/6 at the stage with Kurger Van Wyk and Doug Bracewell in the middle) Doug Bracewell, right handed bat, comes to the crease3:00 pm | 69.6 overs: WICKET! Ashwin to Franklin, out Caught by Sehwag!! Well India are not missing Dravid at first slip for now. If Sehwag can take blinders like those that spot will always be his. Good turn and bounce again for Ashwin. Franklin was not going hard at it but it flies off the edge and to the right of Sehwag at first slip. He reacts instinctively and plucks it out with his right hand. That makes the crowd and his team-mates go delirious. Franklin c Sehwag b Ashwin 5(17) [4s-1]  (NZ 145/6 in 69.6 overs)advertisementKruger van Wyk, right handed bat, comes to the crease 2:50 pm | 67.2 overs: WICKET! Ashwin to Flynn, out Lbw!! Ashwin gets Flynn for the second time in the match in similar fashion too. Flynn reaches out for an expansive sweep but misses and is struck in line with middle and off. It was turning away but Steve Davis was quick to raise the finger. 8th wicket for Ashiwn and New Zealand inch closer to defeat. Flynn lbw b Ashwin 11(54) [4s-1] (NZ 142/5 in 67.2 overs ).Franklin takes time to mark his guard. 2:30 pm | 64.2 overs: WICKET! Ojha to Williamson, out Caught by Sehwag!! Williamson’s defiant stay comes to an end and Ojha strikes in the first over of his new spell. Very good bowling again. It was flighted and extracted good turn and bounce from the track. Williamson stretched out to defend but it takes the shoulder of the bat and loops up low in front of Sehwag at first slip. He makes no mistake and this is big blow for New Zealand before tea. Williamson c Sehwag b Ojha 52(163) [4s-4] (NZ 138/4 in 64.2 overs).Daniel Flynn, left handed bat, comes to the crease1:37 pm | 48.3 overs: WICKET! Ashwin to Ross Taylor, out Bowled!! Ashwin gets his 7th of the match. Beautifully bowled and terrible judgement by Taylor. He shoulders arms on a turning track and pays the price. It did not pitch too far outside off but Taylor decides to leave anyway. The ball turns in sharply and crashes into the stumps much to the Indians delight. Ross Taylor b Ashwin 7(9) (NZ 105/3 in 48.3 overs)Ross Taylor, right handed bat, comes to the crease 1:20 pm | 45.1 overs: WICKET! Umesh Yadav to Brendon McCullum, out Lbw!! Big reverse swing for Umesh Yadav but McCullum is not happy. Rightly so too. There was a big inside edge on that one. Umesh Yadav was a little late to go up in appeal too but Steve Davis was convinced. It was full and tailing in. McCullum jammed the ball into his front pad. It would have gone on to hit the stumps but you’ve got to say McCullum was very unlucky there. A big blow for New Zealand too. Brendon McCullum lbw b Umesh Yadav 42(130) [4s-3] (NZ 98/1 in 45.1 overs)2ND SESSION1st SESSION SUMMARY: Fantastic effort from Williamson and Brendon McCullum. They have played the spinners effectively and have not given their wickets away. The pitch has slowed up a touch and the Indian bowlers have their work cut out. Join us in 30 minutes for the post-lunch session. 12:30 pm | 42.6 overs: Ashwin to Williamson, FOUR, again Ashwin drags this delivery down short and on leg stump, Williamson swats it to the deep square leg fence, that will be lunch advertisement11:26 am | 26.6 overs: Ojha to Williamson, no run, loopy delivery on off stump, Williamson nudges it to square leg. NZ are 60/1 at the stage with opener Brendon McCullum on 22 and Kane Williamson on 16.11: 08 am | 20.1 overs: Ojha to Brendon McCullum, 1 run, edged but safe, this delivery drifts back in and it spins away, McCullum lunges forward and pushes at it, the outside edge rolls to short third man.Two slips and a silly point in place. 11:00 am | Out come the two NZ players. Brendon McCullum and Williamson have a massive task ahead of them. The Indian players are out in the huddle. 10:20 am | All the covers have been removed and the umpires are having an inspection. The super-soppers are doing the rounds to drain the ground of the excess water. James Franklin: The conditions are not good for cricket but we hope to hang in there. The weather gods are helping us but any help from above we will take it. I just went about my plans and I employed a solid defensive technique. There is a lot more turn in this innings. Both Ashwin and Ojha did not bowl many bad balls. 9:30 am | Hello and welcome to day 4 of the first Test between India and New Zealand from Hyderabad. First, the gloomy news. It is currently raining in Hyderabad and the start will be delayed. Stay tuned for updates   Day 3:2:58 pm |  Play has been called off. So rain has the final say in a day dominated by India, thanks to R Ashwin’s impressive six-wicket haul in the first innings. Still 2 more days to go, so plenty of time for India to bowl New Zealand out (and then bat again if necessary). All of that though, only if weather permits. Following on, New Zealand are 41/1 in the second innings.  1st innings: India 348 (Pujara 159), NZ (Franklin 43 n.o. ; Ashwin 6/31, Ojha 3/44)last_img read more
