Best phones under 10,000 – Advertisement – The Realme Narzo 10A can be seen as a replacement for the Realme C3 because these two smartphones share a lot of hardware, with the exception of a fresh design, macro camera, and fingerprint sensor on the Narzo 10A. This phone sports a 6.5-inch display with HD+ resolution and is powered by the MediaTek Helio G70 SoC. There are two variants of the Narzo 10A, one with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage priced at Rs. 8,999, and the other with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage which costs Rs. 9,999.The Narzo 10A packs in a 5,000mAh battery and offers good battery life.

Moto E7 Plus8Rs. 9,499 Motorola has packed in a 5,000mAh battery that keeps the smartphone going for a really long time before needing to be charged. There is no USB Type-C port here and the Moto E7 Plus has a Micro-USB port. The bundled charger is 10W only and takes over two hours to charge the device completely. You only get a dual camera setup on the Moto E7 Plus. The primary one has a 48-megapixel sensor, and there is a 2-megapixel depth sensor. The cameras are capable of capturing good photos in daylight. Using Night mode the Moto E7 Plus also takes some decent low-light shots.The Moto E7 Plus offers a clean near-stock Android UI which is not very common at this price level. If you like a simple, easy-to-use interface then the Moto E7 Plus has that going for it. At a price of Rs. 9,499 the Moto E7 Plus is definitely easy to recommend, but keep an eye out for the more powerful Moto G9, which goes on sale for Rs. 9,999 quite often. Redmi 97Rs. 8,999 The Redmi 9 is the successor to the Redmi 8, which has been on our recommendation list for quite some time now. Xiaomi has made a few tweaks to the Redmi 9 starting with a switch back to a Micro-USB port, which is a little surprising since the Redmi 8 had a USB Type-C port. The Redmi 9 sports a 6.53-inch HD+ display with a dewdrop notch at the top.Xiaomi has picked the MediaTek Helio G35 processor to power the Redmi 9, and has paired it with 4GB of RAM. The Redmi 9 packs in a 5,000mAh battery but only comes with a 10W charger in the box. While charging is a little slow, battery life is quite good and you should be able to go beyond a day with regular use. The Redmi 9 runs Android 10 with MIUI 12 on top. There is a fair amount of bloatware on the smartphone and we did encounter spammy notifications while using it.The Redmi 9 has a dual camera setup at the back consisting of a 13-megapixel primary camera and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. It has a 5-megapixel front camera for selfies. The Redmi 9 is capable of handling day-to-day tasks, but heavy games may not run very smoothly.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida (CMC) – Captain Carlos Brathwaite said yesterday West Indies’ failure to properly assess the pitch at the Central Broward County Stadium had led to their defeat in the opening Twenty20 International against India.Sent in, West Indies slumped to 33 for five at the end of the sixth over before recovering through Kieron Pollard’s run-a-ball top score of 49 to reach 95 for nine off their 20 overs.“I don’t think we assessed quickly enough. Obviously losing four wickets in the power-play, the odds are very low of actually winning a game,” Brathwaite said afterwards.“I think we went from one extreme to the next. We went extremely hard at the top (before) myself and Pollard tried to rebuild.“I could probably fault myself in being too slow as well, but had we assessed a little bit quicker, used the same intent – because as a team we want to play aggressive, positive cricket – we would have played different shots and settle for 130, 135, 140. That would have been a winning score.“It was not a true pitch but in cricket you can’t always have a true pitch to get 200-odd. Sometimes you need to graft, show some batsmanship and struggle to 140, 150 and make a game of it.”Batting at number four, Pollard rescued the Caribbean side’s innings in a sensible knock that included two fours and four sixes.Importantly, he put on 34 with Brathwaite (9) for the sixth wicket to help West Indies avoid a total collapse.“That experience is invaluable, he’s been doing it in IPL at all numbers from four straight back down to eight and it just goes to show,” Brathwaite said of Pollard.“He was able to exude batsmanship – he rebuilt in the power-play then once the spinners came on he stroked the ball up and down and got some boundaries in-between as well, so it was a fantastic knock by him.“If the team had supported him a bit more we would’ve gotten to a bigger total and probably he would have been able to put in a better personal performance.”Defending a small total, West Indies forced India to labour by taking wickets at key points, before the visitors eventually got home in the 18th over to win by four wickets.Off-spinner Sunil Narine was at his best in his first outing for West Indies in nearly two years, taking two for 14 from four miserly overs while seamers Sheldon Cottrell (2-20) and Keemo Paul (2-23) supported with two wickets apiece.Brathwaite said like Pollard, Narine’s experience had shown in the effort.“Sunil’s four overs in any cricket is very important. Today he showed his experience, he had it on a string and brought us back into the game,” the all-rounder pointed out.“Kudos to the pacers as well, they did well to set it up so that when (Narine) came on he could have done the job he did. “With a little bit more runs on the board, his personal performance could have looked a lot better as well but as a team I think we fought well, we grafted well with a small score and it’s back to the drawing board.”Brathwaite said despite the defeat, West Indies would continue to be positive and try to improve on their assessment of conditions.“The message will continue to be ‘keep the intent’. However, we need to assess better and be a bit smarter in our shot selection,” the Barbadian stressed.“So it’s not trying not to get boundaries but knowing if you get a boundary early in an over on a tough pitch we can settle for six, seven, eight (runs) an over. Our power in the back end … in the last five overs … we could’ve gotten up to 150 today.”West Indies face India in the second match of the double-header here today.
NEW ORLEANS >> Through the hot streaks and erratic slumps, Nick Young hardly ever seemed hesitant to shoot the basketball.But as he competed in the 3-point contest during All-Star weekend on Saturday at Smoothie King Center, Young soon encountered “first-time jitters” before falling out of the first round with a final score of 18. After he missed his first money ball on the first rack, Young said he “started thinking too much” before missing four out of five shots on the second rack. Despite making three out of five shots on the money back rack at the top of the key, Young contended he “should’ve stuck with my plan” to save the money-ball rack for the right corner. Though Young has shot a career-high 41.3 percent from 3-point range this season through suffocating defenses, he found the task of making open 3-pointers in 60 seconds more difficult.“It’s fun, but there’s a lot more pressure than people notice,” Young said. “You’re out there by yourself. The world is watching.” That left Young refusing initially to talk to his son because “I didn’t want to see the disappointment.” That also left Young determined to return to the NBA’s 3-point shooting contest in hopes to win at Staples Center. “I’ll be back. I’ll get the first one out the way,” Young said. “I got to come back. I didn’t have a chance to celebrate. They need me back.”Still, Young said he “had a blast” during All-Star weekend with his family. He also kept his sense of humor after tying for fourth place with Golden State’s Klay Thompson and finishing behind Houston’s Eric Gordon, Cleveland’s Kyrie Irving, Charlotte’s Kemba Walker.Young argued he and Thompson are on equal footing as outside shooters since they tied. Young jokingly said he “should’ve never listened” to teammate Jordan Clarkson for putting the money-ball rack at the top of the key. He also chimed in on Irving’s contention that the Earth is flat, saying, “I think the world could be — it just never ends.”Young also said he had shoot poorly out of an apparent way to conserve energy in subsequent rounds. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “They tricked me and said the first four advanced. I didn’t know it was top three,” Young said. “So I thought I was good.”Young also turned serious on what he hopes the Lakers (19-39) accomplish following the All-Star break.“Energy and playing together. We got to set the tone and try to get to 30 wins,” Young said. “Try to get 30-plus wins. We tried to get 20 (wins) before All-Star. That didn’t work. But we got to set more goals.”That includes himself.“Finish off strong and stay in the starting lineup,” Young said. “Still be here.”Young will soon find out if he can accomplish that feat at the trade deadline on Thursday. It might provide a consolation prize after the man who calls himself “Swaggy P” suddenly lost his mojo.“I was a little nervous, a little bit,” Young said. “Time went faster than I thought. It happens.”

Few batsmen can hit the ball as cleanly and as far as Yusuf Pathan. When he is on song, bowlers are often left scurrying for cover and opposition captains are left scratching their heads.So, when Yusuf, with a strike rate of 146 in the IPL, struts out to play against Delhi Daredevils at a relatively small Feroz Shah Kotla, you’d expect his eyes to light up. KKR vs DD Match HighlightsBut you’d be wrong if you expected that.The star Kolkata Knight Riders batsman watched as Sam Billings and Sanju Samson got Delhi off to an explosive start but admitted on air (in a mic conversation with Sunil Gavaskar) that he would much rather prefer batting on bigger grounds.”I get nervous on small grounds. With long boundaries I know how far to hit,” he said.Yusuf had made his T20 International debut in the final against Pakistan in the final of the inaugural World T20 in Johannesburg in 2007. In the first edition of the IPL, he smashed 435 runs at a strike rate of 179.Yusuf’s big moment in the IPL came in 2010, when he hammered a hundred for Rajasthan Royals off only 37 balls against Mumbai Indians.The 34-year-old, however, said his role in KKR has changed overtime and he was content to leave the boundary hitting to the others.”My role has changed a bit.. Boundaries and sixes are for someone else to hit now. I can play my natural game if needed and look to bat 20 overs if needed,” he said.advertisement
