United States will end preferential trade treatment for India from Wednesday

US President Donald Trump has announced that the United States will end preferential trade treatment for India from Wednesday.

India is the single largest receiver of the decades-old US widespread System of a Preferences program, allowing the country to sell abroad $5.7 billion worth of duty-free supplies in 2017, according to statistics from US Congress.

Trump said I have determined that India has not assured the United States that India will provide equitable and reasonable access to its markets.

 

We always expected it to be a hard game -Sarfraz Ahmad

Pakistani Cricket team captain Sarfraz Ahmad after recent defeats have shared his views about the match.

He said that we are hurt too as no one wants to lose a World Cup match like that. All those who have played this great game will vouch for the pain the players undergo following such an ordinary performance.

What went wrong? I can say a number of things, but by stating those facts I will not try to hide behind excuses.

To begin with, the starting time was very crucial. A 10:30 start made the toss very important. We too wanted to bowl first but toss is never in your control. I lost it and the West Indies, like any other team, would have done, sent us into bat.

“We always expected it to be a hard game. We were ready for a barrage of short pitch balls and had prepared for it. But, we lost too many wickets up front that pegged us back.”
