Match fixing: Ex-Lankan skipper refuses to name cricketers after threat

first_imgFormer Sri Lankan skipper Hashan Tillekaratne on Tuesday said he had received death threats following his revelations about match fixing in the national cricket team. Tillekaratne, now a politician in Sri Lanka’s opposition party, told media that on the advice of his lawyers he has decided against revealing specific names at this time. “I have made a statement today but I have taken advice from my lawyers and I did not expose those involved after I came out with these allegations. I have been receiving lots of nuisance calls and death threats and all these things. But I will definitely expose those involved in the time to come,” Tillekaratne said adding he has been reluctant to voice his allegations previously for fear of his safety. He also said he will tell the International Cricket Council (ICC) that cricket matches were fixed during his career. Last week Tillekaratne had said that match fixing has been prevalent in Sri Lanka since 1992 and now he reaffirmed his statement saying he would not reveal specific names. His allegations have created waves within Sri Lankan Cricket (SLC) and have been dismissed by the board as well as the current cricketers. The SLC expressed concern over the allegations and called for “concrete evidence” to substantiate them.last_img read more

Inside the farm of the future

first_img Tags Tech Industry Mobile 3:02 0 Microsoft’s FarmBeats program uses the company’s Azure cloud to connect agricultural devices and generate data intended to help farms operate more efficiently. Sensors embedded in the soil use the cloud to communicate with drones that circle farms to direct irrigation patterns and herbicide distribution and to optimize the harvesting of crops. CNET visited Microsoft’s Cloud Collaboration Center in Redmond, Washington, to learn more about how the cloud, AI and the internet of things (IoT) are transforming business.”We use machine learning and image recognition to understand how our crops are growing,” said Jason Zander, executive vice president of Microsoft Azure. “Today a lot of irrigation systems … just kind of throw water everywhere. Being able to leverage drones and some of these sensors means we save water and get better production out of [farms].”The cloud is evolving rapidly, said Zander. “A decade ago the cloud helped mobile phones become ubiquitous. Today, the cloud becomes really powerful when it helps other emerging technologies like AI and IoT. It’s exciting because we can help entire [business] sectors quickly become more efficient.” Now playing: Watch this: Artificial intelligence (AI) Drones Cloud computing Microsoft Share your voice Post a comment The farm of the future is in the cloud Your next salad might be grown in the cloud and served with a side of artificial intelligence.Cloud computing, a technology that relies on clustered servers positioned across the globe, supports everything from drones to machine learning and the smart home.
