CONDUCTS SECURITY EXERCISE
AT THE PIARCO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
AS THE PRIME MINISTER FLIES HOME
The Airports Authority of Trinidad and Tobago ("Airports Authority") takes
this opportunity to clarify the issues surrounding the security exercise which
took place on Thursday December 3rd 2015 at the Piarco International Airport.
The Airports Authority wishes to place on record that contrary to what is
being reported in the media, this security exercise was initiated and
conducted by our regulator the Trinidad and Tobago Civil Aviation Authority
(TTCAA) without the prior knowledge of the Airports Authority. TTCAA
Regulations mandate that the Airports Authority comply with these security
exercises once initiated by the regulator. The TTCAA has since assured the
Airports Authority that the exercise was not related to the arrival of the
Prime Minister, Dr. the Honourable Keith Rowley, but was part of routine
checks regularly conducted by the TTCAA at the airport.
Notwithstanding, the Airports Authority sincerely apologises to the
Honourable Prime Minister and his contingent for any embarrassment
caused during the TTCAA exercise. We also sincerely apologise to the
travelling public for any inconvenience which may have arisen.
NEW DELHI---Spinner Ravindra Jadeja
took 5-30 as South Africa was bowled out
for 121 in reply to India s first innings of
334 on the second day yesterday of the
fourth and final Test.
India did not enforce the follow on after
gaining a 213-run first-innings lead, but bad
light prevented any further play.
Jadeja broke the back of the South Africa
middle order after Ajinkya Rahane s stylish
knock of 127 put India in command.
Pace bowler Umesh Yadav and offspinner
Ravichandran Ashwin supported left-armer
Jadeja well, taking two wickets each as South
Africa, which has already lost the series,
folded up in under two sessions.
Jadeja s haul included AB de Villiers, cap-
tain Hashim Amla, and Faf du Plessis, as
the visiting side again struggled for confi-
dence, technique, and application.
Jadeja bowled cautious opener Temba
Bavuma for 22 for his first wicket, and grew
in confidence against a diffident batting
Amla, on three, was caught behind as he
tried to cut a delivery from close to his body,
while Faf du Plessis, yet to score, went for
a paddle-scoop but Rahane ran around from
slip to catch the ball down the leg side.
Jadeja had Dane Piedt caught at slip for five at
103-8, while de Villiers holed out to long off after
trying hard to prolong the innings in the company
of tail-enders. De Villiers 42 in two hours was the
only score higher than Bavuma s.
Yadav drew first blood for India when he had left-
handed opener Dean Elgar caught behind for 17, and
later bowled a tentative JP Duminy on 1 in his second
India resumed the day on 231-7, and Rahane and
Ashwin saw off the second new ball and went about
punishing the spin attack on a bright and sunny day
in New Delhi.
Their partnership of 98 runs took India to 296-
8, and helped set up a formidable total considering
the previous highest innings in the series was 215 by
India in the third test at Nagpur.
Rahane, 89 overnight, reached his century with a
straight-driven four off pace bowler Kyle Abbott,
and raising his arms in celebration.
He opened up from there, hitting offspinner Piedt
for two sixes in an over, over mid-wicket and long-
off. He was caught at short cover off legspinner Imran
Tahir when he was stroking the ball beautifully. It
was Rahane s first three-figure score at home, and
fifth overall in 22 Tests.
Ashwin, who produced some fine drives off the
back foot early in the day, was lucky to escape a dif-
ficult chance while on 14. Amla took a low catch at
first slip off Abbott, but replays showed the ball
touched the ground. Amla himself was not sure the
catch was clean.
Abbott eventually dismissed Ashwin for 56, and
last-man Ishant Sharma in the space of three deliveries
to finish with 5-40, and end India s innings after
Jadeja spins India to 213-run lead
