Wicket-keeper Dinesh Karthik and pacer Shardul Thakur were today recalled for the three-match ODI series against New Zealand. Opener Shikhar Dhawan has also returned to the ODI team after missing the series against Australia due to his wife’s illness. However, he did play the T20I series against Australia.

External affairs minister Sushma Swaraj slammed Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi for his comments about women wearing shorts in the RSS. It’s unbecoming of politicians to speak like this, Sushma said, adding, “Had Rahul Gandhi asked why women are not allowed to wear shorts in the RSS, I would have definitely responded. But given the inappropriate language he used, I do not think this question deserves an answer.” The minister also rejected allegations that the BJP is an “anti-women party,” saying that it has given “four women chief ministers and four women Governors.”

Nasa is developing technologies to counter space radiation to ensure a safe and successful exploration of the red planet. Some people think that radiation will keep Nasa from sending people to Mars, but that is not the current situation, Pat Troutman, Nasa Human Exploration Strategic Analysis Lead said, adding, “When we add the various mitigation techniques up, we are optimistic it will lead to a successful Mars mission with a healthy crew that will live a very long and productive life after they return to Earth.”
