day of the semifinal against Punjab Only 36 overs were bowled on Tuesday (IE Photo Jasbir Malhi) As recently as 39 days ago Karun Nair was just another kid with a heavy cricket kit and lightheaded cricketing ambitions He hadn’t yet played a first-class match And having turned 22 in the first week of December Nair knew time was slipping by “I was desperate to play for Karnataka But dreams don’t stop there” he says a bit shy a bit sure “I imagined all kind of things scoring runs and proving my worth maybe even hitting a century And I always always wanted to play in a Ranji final” In precisely that order and in the space of just a month — not more not less — those dreams began materialising First came the debut in place of an injured Robin Uthappa during the group stages In the middle of December opener Nair got his chance to represent Karnataka as a number six batsman against Punjab in Hubli By the time he played Punjab again in just his fifth Ranji game during the ongoing semifinals here in Mohali he had scored three top-order centuries on the trot — the third of which has all but booked his side a place in the final For the first time in four years On Tuesday the fourth day of this severely weather-affected game (the first day was rained out and today saw just 36 overs being bowled due to poor light) Nair stretched his overnight score from 107 to 151* his highest first-class score But despite batting for a better part of two days and gaining a 177-run first innings lead over Punjab Nair claims that neither he nor Karnataka are done yet “Weather permitting our aim is to bat out the fifth day And hopefully by the end of it I will know what it feels like to score a double hundred” he says Imagine that a double hundred for a boy who is yet to settle for a fifty in his just-starting-but-already-flourishing Ranji career “It is hard to believe I know But when you’re not getting runs you realise just how valuable these hundreds are So I refuse to take it easy after scoring a 50” Nair says But having played just eight innings and already having scored three centuries when did he ever have the time to go through a lean patch He listens to the query and delivers his life story scoring big “Until I turned 19 I hadn’t once converted a start to three figures in any level of age-group cricket No hundreds but plenty of fifties sixties and seventies In fact when I was 14 I scored some six seventies on the go” reveals Nair Then he pauses and adds: “At 15 I got into the Under-19 team Here also I went through four years of no centuries Everybody else I batted with usually scored one within their first couple of matches but I couldn’t That frustrated me a lot” The cure he says was found by just focusing harder “It’s all mental when it comes to batting So I ensured that once I cross 50 I keep telling myself to be more alert watch balls more closely simple things like that” Nair says “I’m glad that this determination worked best when I needed it most in my maiden Ranji season” His determination for a hundred incidentally also happened to work best when Karnataka needed it most against Uttar Pradesh in the quarterfinals earlier this month To get to the knock-outs Karnataka had won five consecutive matches in the group stages But it all looked to go in vain when they found themselves tattered at 15/3 minutes after being put in to bat “When I walked in it was the hat-trick ball” he says Indeed Amit Mishra (not to be confused with the Haryana leggie) had just dismissed Karnataka’s top two run-getters this season Lokesh Rahul and Manish Pandey for ducks He adds: “So to get through that and score a century was easily the most challenging And satisfying But I knew I could do it having scored my maiden ton in the previous game against Delhi” That knock of 105 at the Ferozeshah Kotla was also the only three-digit score in the low-scoring game Just as this hundred would have been until Amit Verma joined him there on this truncated day of cricket “It’s great that all of us have found form just before the Trophy final We always had the team to win it but now everything is falling in place at the right time” Few players have scored four consecutive centuries in the history of the Ranji And if Nair is to achieve this extraordinary feat it will be on the grandest domestic stage — in the trophy game “I don’t want to think too far ahead it is hard to believe” he says “But again if you would have told me just last month that I would do all this and will be playing in a Ranji final I wouldn’t have believed that either” Brief scores: Punjab 270 vs Karnataka 447/5 in 1461 overs (K Nair 151 batting A Verma 114 batting H Singh 2/98) For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: PTI | Los Angeles | Published: April 5 2017 5:41 pm Once they are fully developed the biosensors could transmit vital health information to smartphones and other Wi-Fi or Bluetooth-enabled devices he said (Source: File Photo) Top News Scientists have developed contact lenses embedded with transparent biosensors that could help monitor blood glucose levels and telltale signs of a host of other disease without invasive tests Bio-sensing lenses are based on technology that led to the development of smartphones with more vivid displays Researchers from Oregon State University in the US first developed an inexpensive method to make indium gallium zinc oxide (IGZO) electronics They then used the approach to fabricate a biosensor containing a transparent sheet of IGZO field-effect transistors and glucose oxidase an enzyme that breaks down glucose When they added glucose to the mixture the enzyme oxidised the blood sugar As a result the pH level in the mixture shifted and in turn triggered changes in the electrical current flowing through the IGZO transistor Researchers then created nanostructures within the IGZO biosensor that were able to detect glucose concentrations much lower than found in tears In theory more than 2500 biosensors – each measuring a different bodily function – could be embedded in a one millimetre square patch of an IGZO contact lens said Gregory S Herman of Oregon State University Once they are fully developed the biosensors could transmit vital health information to smartphones and other Wi-Fi or Bluetooth-enabled devices he said “These biosensors probably won’t put blood labs out of business but I think that we can do a lot of diagnostics using information that can be extracted from tear drops in the eye” Herman said For all

Top News These aren’t the best of times for Indian filmmakers Even as a high-decibel coalition of interest groups threatens to stall the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati the Indian Panorama section of the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) scheduled to open in Goa next week has run into controversy Two films — Ravi Jadhav’s Nude which was to be the inaugural film and S Durga by Sanal Kumar Sasidharan — selected for the Panorama by a 13-member jury are missing from the final list released by the Information and Broadcasting Ministry Jury chairman Sujoy Ghosh has resigned while the aggrieved directors have sought an explanation from the ministry Both the directors suspect that their films have been dropped from the Panorama because of the I&B officialdom’s squeamishness about the titles Kumar had renamed his much-acclaimed film as S Durga — the lead character is called Durga — after the censors objected to the original title Sexy Durga If the I&B ministry is indeed responsible it must explain why it deemed it necessary to change a list of films chosen by a jury of experts The Panorama jury has the mandate and autonomy to pick films that are worthy of an IFFI screening Any intervention by outsiders including the ministry in its work is tantamount to imposing censorship and can subvert an institutionalised process The ministry’s role in the conduct of the IFFI certainly does not include deciding on the films to be screened In any case film screenings at festivals like the IFFI are different from box-office releases Festival screenings attract audiences of committed cinema-watchers and offer space for experimental and independent films like Nude and S Durga whose aesthetics may not have a wider appeal There is now a deliberate attempt to shrink such spaces This discomfort with creative works that refuse to conform with populist or majoritarian notions of aesthetics history and morality is increasingly becoming all pervasive Our Constitution guarantees the freedom of speech and expression to all but small interest groups frequently manage to silence the artist in the name of communal sensitivities and
