Need to replicate our home success on foreign soil: Kohli,Need to replicate our home success on foreign soil: Kohli

first_imgRELATED × Australia halt India’s winning run with 21-run victory Published on Their winning streak might have been halted, but India captain Virat Kohli feels the current Indian team can become one of the greatest ODI sides ever if it can replicate its home success in overseas conditions.Kohli’s statement came after the legendary Sunil Gavaskar’s recent comment that the current Team India could end up being the greatest ODI side the nation has ever produced.“It is a decent compliment. Obviously coming from him (Gavaskar), it feels good because he has seen a lot of Indian teams over the past few years,” Kohli told reporters after India lost by 21 to Australia in the fourth ODI here last night.“(But) the journey is long because the team is young. We are playing at home right now. If we can replicate this form in conditions that are alien to us after that we can sit down and be happy with what we have done so far,” Kohli added.Australia’s win snapped India’s winning streak of nine matches. India lead the five—match series 3—1 with the fifth and final ODI to be played in Nagpur on Sunday.Yesterday was also the first loss for India here in eight ODIs since November 2003. The last defeat came against the Australians.“It is all about repeating those processes and try and do the same thing again and again and be consistent in giving the best shots,” Kohli analysed.The India skipper defended the team management’s decision to give the reserves a go yesterday.India had replaced the pace duo of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah with Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Shami but the move seemed to have backfired as Australia posted a stiff victory target of 335 after opting to bat.“We have won the series and you have to try out guys at some stage. You need to test your bench strength as well and you need to give those guys game time. I think Umesh bowled well, even Shami bowled well. Umesh even picked up four wickets,” Kohli said backing his bowlers.Kohli said executing alternate plans is key to success in a match.“I am not someone who sits and thinks maybe I shouldn’t have done this. You try, you go for something, if it doesn’t work make another plan and you go for it again. That is exactly what I think and what the whole squad thinks,” he said.Man of the moment Hardik Pandya (41) and Kedar Jadhav (67) shared 61 runs for the fifth wicket to keep India in the hunt during the chase and Kohli said the partnership was a learning curve for the duo.“When Hardik and Kedar were batting we thought this was the ideal situation for them to understand how the game can be taken till the end. They really did a good job with that partnership,” the skipper said.“There are a few positives from the game but this pitch was such that one team had to bat better than the other,” Kohli added.Kohli also complimented the Australian bowlers for their match—winning effort.“I think Australia’s bowling was quite good. They got breakthroughs at the right time and that really stopped our momentum especially when Kedar and Hardik were going well,” he said.“If they (Hardik and Kedar) had put on 40-50 more runs it would have been ideal for us. That’s exactly what we were seeking but things don’t go your way all the time.”Kohli also praised the opening pair of Ajinkya Rahane (53) and Rohit Sharma (65) for putting up a century stand but said India needed one more big partnership to chase down Australia’s total.“We got a good opening partnership, but we needed one big partnership after that as well. From that point of view, it wasn’t a great batting performance from us. But that can happen, people have off days,” he said.

3 Reasons Why Community Land Rights Are Not Legally Secure in Many Countries

first_img2. Laws often only recognize communities as occupants of government-owned land.In 25 of the 36 countries assessed, Indigenous Peoples and local communities are not granted ownership rights to their lands. Instead, many of these countries only recognize communities as possessors, occupiers and users of government-owned land, and laws in some countries do not mention community land rights at all. Without recognized ownership rights, community lands in these countries may be particularly vulnerable to expropriation without compensation, land use restrictions, and other infringements by governments, companies and other outsiders. For example, many indigenous communities in the United States, Canada and Australia are only granted the right to occupy, use and control areas they occupy. The governments of these countries ultimately own these reserves and retain underlying authority over them.3. Communities often must register to receive legal protection.Of the 36 countries assessed, only the Philippines, Zambia, Tanzania, Uganda and South Sudan have laws that recognize communities as property owners regardless of whether they’ve registered or obtained formal titles to their lands. In other countries, where registration is required to receive legal protection, communities must follow processes that are often unclear, difficult to access, time-consuming and expensive. While registration processes are underway but incomplete, communities remain vulnerable to dispossession, displacement and other risks associated with insecure land rights.Moving Toward Secure Land TenureLast month saw the launch of the Global Call to Action on Indigenous and Community Lands (GCA). The campaign aims to double the amount of land legally recognized as owned and controlled by Indigenous Peoples and communities by 2020, and eventually, secure lands for all communities and Indigenous Peoples. LandMark can help support the GCA campaign by monitoring progress towards the target and encouraging governments to enact laws that strengthen the tenure security of community lands.Strong legal rights are a necessary first step. But the law itself is insufficient to ensure land tenure security. Governments must not only enact, but also enforce laws that protect the land rights of Indigenous Peoples and local communities. By doing so, governments can help improve livelihoods, combat climate change and promote a sustainable future for our planet. Strong legal rights to land are crucial for Indigenous Peoples and local communities. When communities have weak or insecure land rights, such areas are particularly vulnerable to expropriation, land grabbing and infringements by outsiders. And since communities rely on land and natural resources for their livelihoods, food supply, cultural and spiritual traditions, and more, threats to their lands are really threats to life as they know it.The problem is that community land rights are insecure in many regions around the world. LandMark, a mapping platform, provides information on communities’ legal rights to land and natural resources in 36 countries. Analyzing the data reveals many reasons why community land rights are insecure, three of which are particularly noteworthy:1. Laws often do not recognize communities as landowners.Only 11 of the 36 countries assessed (Bolivia, Brazil, Burkina Faso, China, Colombia, Kenya, Peru, the Philippines, Tanzania, Uganda and South Sudan) have laws that recognize communities as the property owners of their lands. Community land in these countries is not treated as vacant or government-owned, as it is in many other countries. Rather, communities are given the same level of legal protection as other types of property owners, such as freeholders or leaseholders.The remaining countries have laws that provide limited or no legal rights to community and indigenous lands. For example, India and Cambodia have national-level laws that grant communities ownership rights to forest lands and cultivated land respectively, but not to other types of lands commonly held by communities, such as rangelands, wetlands and other uncultivated areas.last_img read more
