Tsunami Fears A powerful earthquake struck late Monday off Indonesia's west coast, killing nearly 300 people whose homes collapsed on them and spreading panic across the Indian Ocean that another killer tsunami was on the way.
But fears of a second tsunami catastrophe in just over three months eased within hours, as officials in countries at risk reported their coasts clear of the type of quake-spawned waves that ravaged a dozen countries in Asia and Africa on Dec. 26.
Bangalore Test: India "managed" to lose the final test and draw the series against Pakistan by getting allout for 214 in 90 overs.
Kumble 37 (52) was the only batsman who played with any sense on a day when the famed Indian batting side crumbled. The much-vaunted quartet of Rahul Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and V.V.S. Laxman could muster only 39 runs between them. (Kumble couldn't find any space in the ODI side announced after the match!)
Scores: Pakistan 570 and 261/2 decl beat India 449 and 214 by 168 runs.
