Virendra Sehwag epic tweet for Chris Morris is going viral on internet: Read tweet

In light of the recent Rajasthan Royals victory against Delhi Capitals on Thursday, former India batsman Virender Sehwag took to Twitter to make an interesting point about South African Chris Morris’ run in the IPL series so far.

Sehwag posted two pictures, one of Morris surprised when Sanju Samson denied him a single and another after he led his team to their first victory of the season.

In his tweet, the Indian legend reckons that Morris’ buy was money well-spent, despite underwhelming expectations at the start of the series. He implies that, while the opener of IPL 2021 won the Royals money, the second match of the series was what yielded him respect. 

The tweet comes in context of Rajasthan Royals’ purchase of Morris, considered to be the most expensive buy in IPL history at a price of Rs. 16.25 crore. Expectations for Morris had run high for the same reasons, and several were critical of his performance during the Royals poor start against Punjab Kings.

However, the South African stepped up to the job against Delhi Capitals on Thursday, earning his side a spectacular 36 off 18 that put all such speculation to rest. The Royals won by three wickets.

Amazon will no longer offer its prime membership in India: Read more

Amazon will no longer offer monthly Prime membership in India. Moving forward, the e-commerce giant will only be offering three-month or annual Prime memberships. The Amazon Prime subscription amount begun at Rs. 129 per month, but this starting pack has been removed to adhere with new Reserve Bank of India mandate. RBI’s new guideline asks banks and financial institutions to implement an additional factor of authentication (AFA) for processing recurring online transactions. The deadline for implementation of this new mandate has been set for September 30.

 

Amazon has updated its support page to reflect the removal of monthly membership of Amazon Prime subscription. Additionally, since April 27, Amazon has also temporarily discontinued new member sign-ups for Amazon Prime free trial as well. At the moment, if a user is looking to buy Amazon Prime membership or renew it, they can only purchase three month or annual subscription. Three months subscription for Amazon Prime is priced at Rs. 329 and the yearly membership is priced at Rs. 999 per year.

 

The new RBI framework was originally announced in August 2019 and an extended deadline for banks and financial institutions has been set for September 30 this year. This deadline was extended to “prevent any inconvenience to the customers.” Gadgets 360 learnt that merchants through various industry bodies urged RBI and the government to hold the proposed system as it was believed to disrupt auto-payments of mobile, utility, and other bills and subscription charges of over-the-top (OTT) platforms.

Initially, RBI issued the framework to deploy AFA for recurring transactions worth up to Rs. 2,000 in 2019. It, however, extended that rule in December last year to transactions of up to a limit of Rs. 5,000 per transaction. Transactions above that cut-off will require an additional one-time password (OTP). RBI also warned that any further delay in ensuring complete adherence to the framework beyond the extended timeline would attract stringent supervisory action.
