Kin ire at newborn death

Kathmandu: Tension ran high at Himal Nursing Home (HNH) in Kamalpokhari after a newborn died on Friday evening due to alleged negligence of the HNH authorities.

Kishor Silwal, a resident of Tikathali VDC in Lalitpur District, accused the nursing home of “killing his baby”. The aggrived vandalised the healthcare facility as many as four times, demanding that the errant authorities be brought to book. However, Dr Lok Bikram Thapa, chairperson, HNH, brushed off the allegations. “We’ll make the reality public on Saturday,” he added. — HNS

Lee stars in NSW win

HYDERABAD: Brett Lee pulled off a stunning allround show to enable New South Wales (NSW) haul in the biggest cash prize in a cricket tournament ever by overcoming a brave effort from Trinidad & Tobago (T&T) in the final of the Champions League Twenty20. The final victory margin of 41 runs doesn’t quite tell the real story. T&T came out on the top initially, reducing NSW to 83 for 6, but Lee played a superb hand to propel NSW to a competitive 159 before he returned to jolt the T&T top order with two early wickets. The game was won in the last five overs of the NSW innings and in the first five of the chase. Lee featured in both the little match-turning phases. The game had many sub-plots - the nervy collapse of NSW

and T&T’s top order, Ravi Rampaul’s
