Vishwakarma stars as Nepal and Zimbabwe win

The Nepal spinner Rahul Vishwakarma recorded the best bowling figures of the tournament when he finished with a remarkable 6 for 3 from 6.2 overs at the Peter Burge Oval in Brisbane. His efforts set up a comprehensive six-wicket win for Nepal over Papua New Guinea in their 13th place play-off, as Papua New Guinea were skittled for 89 having chosen to bat. Vishwakarma, who bowls left-arm orthodox, demolished the middle order and then capped off his performance by completing a run-out to end the innings in the 34th over, leaving Nepal with a simple chase on their hands.

Three wickets from Albert Geita wasn’t enough for Papua New Guinea, who could do nothing to stop Nepal from cruising to their target with more than 30 overs to spare. Naresh Budayair top scored with 27 as Nepal finished on 90 for 4, and Vishwakarma ended the day as the tournament’s second leading wicket taker behind England’s Reece Topley.

Zimbabwe proved too strong for Namibia in their 15th place play-off at the WEP Harris Oval in Brisbane, where half-centuries to Ryan Burl and Matthew Bentley set up a 70-run victory for Zimbabwe. Having chosen to bat, Zimbabwe were in trouble at 10 for 2 as Jason Davidson (3 for 26) removed both the openers, before Bentley and Kevin Kasuza (33) resurrected the innings. They put on 62 for the third wicket before Kasuza departed and Bentley, the Zimbabwe captain, combined with Burl for a 113-run fourth-wicket stand. Bentley made 67 and Burl scored 78, and while the contributions from the Zimbabwe lower order fell away significantly, they had done enough to reach 236 for 9.

Namibia struggled to recover from a wobbly start to their chase as they stumbled to 49 for 4 in the 15th over. Gerhard Erasmus (32) did what he could to put the chase back on track but Luke Jongwe and Peacemore Zimwa picked up three wickets each as Namibia struggled for traction. Jongwe grabbed the final wicket in the 41st over, with Namibia on 166, still 71 runs short of their target. Read the rest of this entry »

The man who screwed an entire country

The Berlusconi era will haunt Italy for years to come

SILVIO BERLUSCONI has a lot to smile about. In his 74 years, he has created a media empire that made him Italy’s richest man. He has dominated politics since 1994 and is now Italy’s longest-serving prime minister since Mussolini. He has survived countless forecasts of his imminent departure. Yet despite his personal successes, he has been a disaster as a national leader—in three ways.

Two of them are well known. The first is the lurid saga of his “Bunga Bunga” sex parties, one of which has led to the unedifying spectacle of a prime minister being put on trial in Milan on charges of paying for sex with a minor. The Rubygate trial has besmirched not just Mr Berlusconi, but also his country.

However shameful the sexual scandal has been, its impact on Mr Berlusconi’s performance as a politician has been limited, so this newspaper has largely ignored it. We have, however, long protested about his second failing: his financial shenanigans. Over the years, he has been tried more than a dozen times for fraud, false accounting or bribery. His defenders claim that he has never been convicted, but this is untrue. Several cases have seen convictions, only for them to be set aside because the convoluted proceedings led to trials being timed out by a statute of limitations—at least twice because Mr Berlusconi himself changed the law. That was why this newspaper argued in April 2001 that he was unfit to lead Italy. Read the rest of this entry »
