  • Bad Saudi PR fuels riyal devaluation talk

    By Andrew Torchia DUBAI (Reuters) - Speculation that Saudi Arabia could devalue its currency may owe more to a poor public relations effort by Saudi authorities than to the economic pressures on the kingdom. Riyadh has the tools available to protect itself as low oil prices push the current account and budget balances of the world's top crude exporter deep into deficit, senior bankers in Saudi Arabia and the Gulf said. In private conversations with Reuters this week, the bankers - many of whom are in contact with Saudi authorities - said Riyadh may detail a strategy to cope with an era of cheap oil as soon as next month, when the finance ministry presents the 2016 budget plan.

  • Sirens ring out as air strikes hit IS Syria stronghold

    In the Islamic State group's Syrian stronghold of Raqa, sirens ring out whenever a warplane approaches as jihadists flee their posts and vehicles to hide, activists say. A US-led coalition and Russia have stepped up air strikes on the jihadists' de facto Syrian capital since IS claimed to have downed a Russian passenger plane over Egypt's Sinai in October and the deadly jihadist attacks in Paris two weeks later. "The sirens are on the roofs of high buildings, in the squares and in the streets," Taym Ramadan, a city resident and anti-IS activist, told AFP.

  • Poor pitches will kill Indian cricket

Likewise, the sub-continent teams playing on the bouncy pitches in England, Australia and South Africa and seaming ones in New Zealand should get the option of bowling first, but barring Pakistan, do the others have quality fast bowlers to make use of the greens? If India decides to field first in these countries, unless determined by the overhead conditions, is seen as a defensive ploy.
