(AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSIndia beat West Indies by 125 runs at Old Trafford on ThursdayShami and Bumrah were once again the pick of the bowlers for IndiaVirat Kohli top scored with 72 while MS Dhoni smashed an unbeaten 56Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami led another sterling bowling effort as India crushed West Indies by 125 runs at Old Trafford on Thursday to inch one step closer to the semi-finals of the 2019 Cricket World Cup.The massive Indian victory was also highlighted by Virat Kohli who top-scored with 72, MS Dhoni’s unbeaten 56 and useful contributions from KL Rahul (48) and Hardik Pandya (46).India now have 11 points while West Indies with 3 points from 7 matches are out of the semi-finals race.Mohammed Shami started the damage with 2 early wickets before Bumrah picked 2 wickets in 2 balls to send West Indies crashing out of the World Cup. Between those two bursts from India’s star pacers, Hardik Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal did serious damage to ensure India remained the only unbeaten team in the World Cup so far.Chasing 269 on a tricky pitch, West Indies never found any momentum. Mohammed Shami removed Chris Gayle and Shai Hope inside the first 7 overs and the Windies never recovered from that early jolt. Sunil Ambris and Nicholas Pooran looked to put their team on the road to recovery but Hardik Pandya dismissed Ambris to trigger a typical West Indies collapse.Kuldeep Yadav next struck to snare Nicholas Pooran and at 80 for 4 in the 21st over on a pitch offering turn, all West Indies hopes had been dashed. In the 24th over, Yuzvendra Chahal removed Jason Holder and India knew they were on the verge of a huge win.But the dangerous Carlos Brathwaite was still in India’s way. Only a few days back, his barnstorming hundred had almost taken West Indies across the line against New Zealand in a high-scoring thriller. Against the best bowling attack in the world, there would be no Brathwaite magic.advertisementBack for his second spell, Bumrah removed Brathwaite and Fabian Allen off consecutive deliveries before Shami struck again to see off Shimron Hetmyer as India marched towards a comfortable victory.Earlier after winning the toss, Virat Kohli decided India would bat.Rohit Sharma was controversially ruled out by the third umpire Michael Gough who certainly did not rule the popularity charts among Indian fans on social media. But KL Rahul (48) and Virat Kohli (72) kept pressing forward against a disciplined West Indies bowling attack.KL Rahul fell to another poor shot, Kedar Jadhav and Vijay Shankar failed but Kohli was a class apart. He timed the ball better than anyone else and was the real threat as West Indies looked to keep India under 300.MS Dhoni struggled to get going once again and with Hardik Pandya, he could not even rotate the strike well. Pandya did try to up the ante but Dhoni was unable to get going at the other end.The Dhoni-Pandya partnership was slow but the pair made sure India had the services of two big-hitting batsmen for the death overs. Pandya eventually perished for 46 but Dhoni set himself up to hit 2 sixes and 1 four in the final over of Oshane Thomas. He brought up his 72nd fifty in ODIs as India finished with a competitive total.India next take on hosts England on June 30.Also Read | Virat Kohli breaks Tendulkar and Lara record, fastest to 20,000 international runsAlso Read | India vs West Indies, World Cup 2019: Rohit Sharma’s dismissal sparks off controversyAlso Read | Virat Kohli 1st Indian captain to score four successive fifties in World CupsAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

The move is part of a strategy to help slow the number of defectors to a growing number of competitor’s phones, including Apple’s iPhone, devices on the Android operating system and others.Earlier this month, BlackBerry’s new phones passed what the company called a “critical step forward in the security certification process” by the U.S. Department of Defence, which give them permission to operate on the Pentagon’s networks.Despite its efforts, BlackBerry is still struggling to retain a notable market share. In the U.S., the recent launch of its touchscreen and keyboard BlackBerry 10 devices have been perceived as a sales flop.A report from U.K.-based Juniper Research said the company is also starting to lose market share in parts of the world where it once had a certain stronghold, like South Africa and Indonesia.As part of an effort to turn around its operations, BlackBerry has been trying to reduce expenses across its operations. The effort has seen the company cut thousands of jobs over the past year, from lower-level employees to executives. The latest reduction came earlier this month when it laid off about 100 workers.The company is also in the midst of a review of its “strategic alternatives,” which could result in the sale of its operations or an agreement to take the company private.BlackBerry shares were ahead 19 cents at $11.05 near midday Monday on the Toronto Stock Exchange.
