Full ScorecardDinesh Karthik heaped rich praise on MS Dhoni after the pair added 57 runs in a little over five overs to set up India’s successful chase of 299 in the second ODI at the Adelaide Oval on Tuesday. Karthik blasted 25 not out off 14 balls while Dhoni remained unbeaten on 55 off 54 balls to guide India to a six-wicket victory.Virat Kohli had really laid the foundation for the win with his 39th ODI hundred. He had shared valuable partnerships with Rohit Sharma, Ambati Rayudu before getting involved in an 82-run stand with MS Dhoni.Once Kohli was dismissed for a 112-ball 104, the onus was on Dhoni, who had scored the second slowest fifty of his ODI career on Saturday. He was under the scanner especially after a poor 2018 where he scored only 275 runs off 20 ODIs. Coming into the second match in Adelaide, the talk revolved around Dhoni’s dwindling ability to finish matches.But faced with a steep chase Tuesday evening, Dhoni found his mojo and hit two sixes in the course of an unbeaten 55 off 54 balls to show he still had it in him.MS Dhoni Six vs Australia. #Dhoni #AUSvIND Of MS Dhoni (@MissYouMSDhoni) January 15, 2019Dinesh Karthik, who added 57 off 5.4 overs with Dhoni, said he was not surprised with his senior’s efforts.”It was a pretty tight finish,” Karthik said. “They were bowling some good areas and we absorbed pressure well.advertisement”Credit to Virat and Dhoni, the way they played. We got a good start as well so it’s the sort of win that will give the team a lot of confidence, chasing 300.”(Dhoni) has been doing it for years now and the fact he can stay calm, the fact he can absorb pressure and watch the ball, keep the plan very simple. You need the big shot and then he delivers.”Kohli, who won the man-of-the-match for his hundred, also lauded Dhoni for his sterling knock. “Tonight was an MS classic. Only he knows what’s going through his mind. He calculates the game so well. He backs himself to hit those big hits. Hats off to him and Dinesh as well.”He came in and showed the right kind of intent. MS was as composed as ever. We try and help each other… Tonight was special for us,” Kohli said.Also Read | MS Dhoni overtakes Virat Kohli for highest average in successful run chasesAlso Read | India vs Australia: Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni help India gun down 299, series level 1-1Also Read | Virat Kohli scores 39th ODI hundred: Shane Warne leads tributes for the KingFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter for Sports news, scores and updates.Get real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

Breakfast cereal boxes criticised for depicting portions that are too big

It concluded that claims about whole grains, vitamins and folic acid “might mislead consumers into thinking the cereals are healthier than they are”.The study said: “Dental and other health professionals need to be aware of the high sugar content of these cereals and the marketing techniques that are used by their manufacturers when giving advice to children and their parents.” Breakfast cereal portions are depicted as too big as experts say pictures on the side of boxes are unrealistic.Images of Frosties, Crunchy Nut Cornflakes, Coco Pops, and other UK cereals show bowls “brimming to the top with cereal and milk” and containing as much of 90g of cereal, while their packaging recommends a portion size of just 30g.“This suggests that if the imagery on the cereal packet is imitated, children aged 4 to 10 would be exceeding their daily limit of free sugars by 12.5% by eating one bowl of cereal,” the study published in the British Dental Journal found.The study investigated 13 breakfast cereals and analysed the content of the packaging with regard to imagery, health claims and nutritional content.Several cereals were found to be more than one third sugar by weight.The investigation also found that even if the manufacturer’s suggested portion size was used 8 of the 13 cereals provided over half of the recommended daily sugar intake for a child between the ages of 4 and 6. Several cereals were found to be more than one third sugar by weightCredit: Betsy Cole / FOAP/Getty Images  Maria Morgan, a Senior Lecturer in Dental Public Health at Cardiff University and an author of the study, said: “It’s impossible to know if manufacturers are deliberately tricking people, but the end result is a misleading image that encourages overconsumption of sugar.”“Ultimately, it is young people from deprived areas that will be worst impacted by these images.”The Association of Cereal Food Manufacturers said: “Breakfast cereals are an important source of fibre, vitamins, and minerals.”Last month, the head of the NHS in England called for manufacturers to review the sugar content of their products.Giving evidence to the Commons health and social care committee, Simon Stevens said that the breakfast cereals were contributing to increased childhood obesity in the UK.“On average children are having the equivalent of three sugar lumps at breakfast. For poorer children that is often much worse. That is obviously contributing a lot to the childhood obesity epidemic,” he said.In June the government published a plan that aims to half childhood obesity in England by 2020.Mr Stevens added: “It obviously matters for the NHS, but frankly it matters to us as parents. It is our children who are inadvertently on the receiving end of what you think is a healthy breakfast cereal but often turns out not to be.” Several cereals were found to be more than one third sugar by weight Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?
