Hyderabad: He doesn’t want guests to bring any gifts on his wedding but his only request to them is to vote for Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the coming general elections.

“Our gift is your vote for Modi in 2019 Lok Sabha election”. A 27-year-old from Hyderabad has printed this on his wedding card.

An ardent supporter of Modi, Mukesh Rao Yande is getting both bouquets and brickbats for his action.

His parents and other family members had reservations over printing this on the wedding card since guests may not like this, as they may be supporters of other political parties. However, Mukesh, an Assistant Engineer in state-run Telangana Power Generation Corporation, had his way.

 

Hyderabad youth demands vote for Modi instead of gifts on his wedding:

 

“It is my way of showing endorsement for Narendra Modi’s work and asking support for his re-election,” declared Mukesh, who is getting married on February 21.

He doesn’t mind when people call him “Modi Bhakt”. Mukesh believes that Modi is leading the country on the right path by undertaking several initiatives like “Swaccha Bharat”.

The youth said while he backed Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) in recent Assembly elections, he wants to see Modi back as the Prime Minister.

India eye maiden T20I series-win in NZ in Hamilton

Hamilton: Team India will aim to continue their rich vein of form and seal their first-ever T20I series win in New Zealand when they take on the Black Caps in the third match at the Seddon Park on Wednesday.

The visitors dominated New Zealand in all the departments in the two games played so far.

In the first match, India chased down the 204-run target with utmost ease, showing their batting depth whereas in the second T20I, it were the bowlers of the Indian team who restricted the Black Caps to a below par total of 132/5 at the Eden Park, which the Men in Blue again chased down without breaking much sweat.

K.L. Rahul and Shreyar Iyer have been India’s linchpin when it comes to batting. Rahul, in particular, has impressed everyone and seems to enjoy the dual role of opening the innings as well as keeping wickets.

Iyer, on the other hand, has showed tremendous maturity and application and has made sure he owns the much-debated no. 4 spot.

Meanwhile, Kane Williamson will hope they come out with an improved performance in all the three departments and keep the series alive. New Zealand have been hampered with injuries to multiple regular players compiled with their poor run in the recent times.

While pacers Trent Boult and Lockie Ferguson are unavailable for the series due to injuries, usually dependable all-rounders Colin de Grandhomme and Mitchell Santner have been out of form and have not been able to trouble the Indian batters even slightly.

Williamson might be tempted to bring in Daryl Mitchell or Scott Kuggeleijn in place of Blair Tickner, who has picked up just one wicket in the series so far, conceding 68 runs in six overs.

Virat Kohli may prefer not to tinker with the winning combination and field the same XI in Hamilton, making sure they continue with their winning streak and seal the series.

The boundaries at Seddon Park are bigger in comparison to the Eden Park and thus one may not be able to see as many sixes as were hit in the previous two matches in Auckland, especially the first one where bowlers from both the sides were taken to cleaners.

Squads: India: Virat Kohli (capt), Rohit Sharma, K.L. Rahul (wk), Manish Pandey, Rishabh Pant, Sanju Samson, Shreyas Iyer, Shivam Dube, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Shardul Thakur, Navdeep Saini, Washington Sundar

New Zealand: Kane Williamson (capt), Martin Guptill, Ross Taylor, Scott Kuggeleijn, Colin Munro, Colin de Grandhomme, Tom Bruce, Daryl Mitchell, Mitchell Santner, Tim Seifert (wk), Hamish Bennett, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee, Blair Tickner
