File Photo   –  The Hindu pink-ballcenter_img April 21, 2016 SHARE COMMENTS cricket New Zealand to host its first day-night Test in March RELATED pink-ball SHARE SHARE EMAIL In order to raise the ever dwindling number of spectators in the stadium, the BCCI is all set to host its first-ever Day/Night cricket Test with pink ball when New Zealand tour India later this year.“We have decided that we will play one Day/Night Test match with pink ball against New Zealand later this year. Before that Duleep Trophy will act as a dress rehearsal for the Day/Night Test match,” BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur told a select gathering of mediapersons at the BCCI’s headquarters in the capital today.Thakur said that the main objective of the Duleep Trophy will be to check how the pink kookaburra behaves under the light in sub-continental conditions.“While we have not zeroed in on the venue, there are lots of factors that need to be taken into account. Things like dew factor, how the spinners bowl with the pink kookaburra on Indian pitches. These things we will get an idea during the Duleep Trophy,” said Thakur.It is expected that all leading Indian players will play in that Duleep game in order to get an idea and also give a feedback to the board before they go ahead with the Test match.While Test matches in India are played with ‘SG Test’ balls, Thakur said that in this upcoming match it will be ‘Pink kookaburra’ that will be used.“We may ask SG to manufacture pink balls later but that has to be of the quality of pink balls that kookaburra produces,” said Thakur.last_img read more

Casey, on Whenever I need to close all my open programs — whether I’m at the end of the day or trying to clear up system resources — quitting all the apps running on my Mac is as easy as clicking Command+Q over and over again. Or at least it was until Google changed Chrome for the worse.A recent update modified Chrome so that clicking Command+Q does nothing, except for showing a small overlay window that says, “Hold #Q to Quit.” That’s right, in the name of protecting users who accidentally click Command+Q (What were they trying to do, use Command+A to select all text?), Google broke the unwritten rules of macOS app behaviors.MacBook Air vs MacBook Pro: Which 13-inch MacBook Is Right For You?Apple’s entry-level MacBook Air and Pro look pretty similar, but our testing proved they differ in crucial ways.Your Recommended PlaylistVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9接下来播放Which Cheap Tablet Is Best?

I kept forgetting, though. And Chrome became more and more annoying.It’s not like I could switch, either. I use Google Docs a lot for work, and it works better in Chrome, by many magnitudes.Fortunately, you can disable this Chrome setting in two simple steps.1) Click Chrome in the menu bar.2) Click Warn Before QuittingThere, now, quitting Chrome has been returned to normal. It might seem like an infinitesimally small tweak, but I never needed the protection from an accidental click of Command+Q. And now, Chrome behaves like it should.Now, I’m not thrown out of my rhythm as I close apps, which is just as important as anything else. When you’re in a groove at work, you need the most friction-free experience possible, because one distraction leads to another. Now that you’ve un-borked Chrome, check out how to enable Chrome’s dark mode.Credit: Laptop MagMORE: How to Use macOS Mojavelast_img read more
