Number plates of vehicles were painted black, windscreens were damaged in stone-pelting and Kannada flags were tied atop them.

A Maharashtra ministerial delegation that was supposed to visit Belagavi in Karnataka on Tuesday amid the border row between the two states seemed to have skipped its schedule due to the respective ministers’ pre-decided events, even as Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai assured his government was committed to protect the borders and ensure Kannadigas’ welfare. The two ministers, expected to be joined by a member of Parliament, were scheduled to meet activists of the Maharashtra Ekikaran Samiti (MES) at Belagavi in Karnataka on Tuesday and hold talks with them on the decades-old border issue. MES is an organisation fighting for the merger of Belagavi and some other border areas with the western state. The development came a day after Karnataka Chief Minister Bommai said he will ask his Maharashtra counterpart Eknath Shinde to not to depute his cabinet colleagues–Chandrakant Patil and Shambhuraj Desai, to Belagavi as planned citing law and order, even as prohibitory orders were clamped in the district ahead of the proposed visit of the delegation.

We have heard of houses that can be transported, but have you ever wondered about a stadium that can be transported to another nation to host a game? Yes, you are reading it right. Stadium 974 is the first and only stadium in the history of football that can be molded and transported. It has been a centre of interest since the start of the FIFA World Cup in 2022. Currently based at the Ras Abu Aboud Stadium in Doha, Qatar, the 974-seat stadium was designed by Fenwick Iribarren Architects. At first, the name of the stadium was announced as Ras Abu Aboud Stadium, but during a launch on November 20, 2021, it was officially renamed Stadium 974

Why 974?

The first question that might come into your mind after reading a name like 974 is, “Why 974?” The reason behind this is the number of containers that are used to build the stadium. This stadium was built with 974 recycled containers, and 974 is also the international dialling code of FIFA World Cup 2022 hosts Qatar.The first performance-based system in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, developed for assessing and rating buildings and infrastructure for their sustainability impacts, named GSAS, granted the stadium a thrilling four-star rating. The round of 16 match between Brazil and South Korea was the last match to be played in stadium 974. The stadium will be dismantled, and no other matches will be played in this stadium due to FIFA’s guidelines on the stadium. FIFA’s guidelines state that to host a World Cup, there should be a primary stadium with a minimum capacity of 80,000 people to host the final, at least one stadium with a minimum capacity of 60,000 to host a semifinal, and a stadium with a minimum capacity of 40,000 to host the other knockout matches. FIFA’s guidelines state that to host a World Cup, there should be a primary stadium with a minimum capacity of 80,000 people to host the final, at least one stadium with a minimum capacity of 60,000 to host a semifinal, and a stadium with a minimum capacity of 40,000 to host the other knockout matches. The official Twitter handle of the FIFA World Cup 2022 tweeted a 360-degree video of the stadium. Stadium 974 has hosted 7 games in the FIFA World Cup, including a round of 16 game in which Brazil quashed a thrilling defeat against South Korea with a scoreline of 4-1.

What will happen to the 974 containers after the dismantling of the stadium?

There is no detailed information on the after-treatment of containers and other products used in the construction of Stadium 974. Qatar is focused on developing world-class infrastructure and a network of breathtaking stadiums in preparation for hosting the 2030 Asian Games and the 2023 Asian Cup. Qatar is also desperately attempting to secure the hosting of the 2036 Summer Olympics, and in order to stand strong in the bid, the nation must develop a strong and good infrastructure for the stadiums.

Dhaka:

After the loss in the opening ODI, Rohit Sharma, and Co. would like to bounce back to winning ways when the two sides meet on Wednesday. Will India make changes to their XI following the heartbreaking loss? We think India could make one change in their XI. Allrounder Shardul Thakur looked in discomfort during his spell in the opening ODI. Reports are that it is a niggle, yet the medical team will check the severity of his condition and take a call on his availability. Umran Malik who has joined the team will be available for selection in the second ODI. If the team management does not want to risk Shardul, Umran is likely to come in. The rest of the side is expected to remain the same. There could be changes in the batting order but otherwise not a lot of changes. For example, KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer may exchange places in middle order depending on the situation. Rahul batted at No 5 on Sunday. But he could bat at No 4 on Wednesday.

India’s Predicted XI: Rohit Sharma (C), Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul (WK), Washington Sundar, Shahbaz Ahmed, Shardul Thakur/ Umran Malik, Deepak Chahar, Mohammed Siraj, Kuldeep Sen

India’s squad for Bangladesh ODIs: Rohit Sharma (C), KL Rahul (VC), Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Rajat Patidar, Shreyas Iyer, Rahul Tripathi, Rishabh Pant (WK), Ishan Kishan (WK), Shahbaz Ahmed, Axar Patel, Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur, Mohd. Siraj, Deepak Chahar, Kuldeep Sen, Umran Malik

A video has gone viral showing an autorickshaw moving in circles without a driver in Maharashtra’s Ratnagiri. In the video, several people can be seen trying to stop it. As per reports, the steering of the autorickshaw got locked after the driver fell. It started running around in circular motion before being stopped by the onlookers.
