disabled COD for you to save cash for essential payments” (Image: File) Top News E-commerce majors Amazon Flipkart and Snapdeal have stopped their CoD (cash-on-delivery) mode of payment following the Indian government’s move to demonitise the Rs 500 and Rs 1000 tenders at 12 am on November 8 Even while these notes will be accepted by hospitals petrol pumps railway stations metro stations and chemists (up to November 11); this courtesy is not extended to anyone else While trying to make a CoD purchase on Amazon you will be greeted with a message saying “We have disabled COD for you to save cash for essential payments” The message advises people to use their debit/ credit cards or net banking to make purchases Snapdeal will still let you choose CoD as a method of paymentbut carries a clear disclaimer on their website “Current currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 have been discontinued Please keep the right denominations handy for payment at delivery” It’s not clear what happens to those who’ve placed a COD order for an expensive item since most people are unlikely to have a wad of Rs 100 notes lying around Flipkart oddly did not carry any such disclaimer while we tried to purchase items below Rs 1000 using CoD As you move up the Rs 1000 margin Flipkart gives you a banner saying “This payment option is not available for this order Please try some other payment mode” Flipkart also issued a statement saying “We welcome this bold and historic initiative by the Government of India This will enable India to move faster towards digital payments and will be a game changer for Flipkart and for the ecommerce industry” The company spokesperson added “We are no longer accepting Cash-on-Delivery (CoD) payments in 500 and 1000 currency notes In order to enable customers to conserve smaller denomination notes for daily essential use we are restricting CoD on orders below Rs 1000 Meanwhile we urge our customers to opt for alternative payment modes such as card on delivery internet banking credit and debit cards gift cards and our easy and convenient PhonePe wallet We are also working on a slew of measures to help customers easily transition from cash to digital payments” Considering that banks are closed today and with ATMs running dry; the public is already low on the smaller Rs 100 and lower denominations to buy regular day-to-day necessities A few of our colleagues who have their products coming in for delivery today (and who had chosen CoD) are certain that they will be declining the delivery It is expected that a lot of people across the country will be rejecting CoD deliveries; thebrunt of which will be taken by these e-commerce websites and their vendors Considering that India still remains a large CoD market for these websites we’ll have to see how they take the hit Read-New currency notes in ATMs from Friday: Government Experts are of the view that e-commerce real estate and consumer non-durable sectors are likely to be hit by government’s move to ban Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes even as they projected the economy to benefit from it in the long run In a press statement Uber said “We welcome the government’s decision to discontinue Rs 500 and Rs 1000 currency notes and introduce new notes in the market During this transition period we request our riders to link their Uber account to digital payment methods or carry

forward each day Everything is possible Don’t give up because it is the easiest thing to do Always choose (the) most difficult task… Control what is in your control ‘Believe that life is worth living and your belief will help create the fact’ – William James” Priyank Panchal wrote in his diary after Gujarat entered the Ranji Trophy knockouts on the heels of three consecutive centuries — 232 against Mumbai 314 not out against Punjab and 113 versus Tamil Nadu Panchal is the leading light of Gujarat batting this season with 1120 runs in eight matches He is the highest scorer in the Ranji Trophy at the moment going at an average of 10181 No player from Gujarat has topped the scoring chart since the tournament’s inception in 1934 The honour is now Panchal’s to lose But there’s a different side to him as well away from cricket He is a voracious reader and loves to write “I picked up the habit when I was 19 I think it changed my life I usually read autobiographies of cricketers Books on my idol Rahul sir (Dravid) are special but I was fascinated to read the life stories of Ricky sir (Ponting) and Sachin sir (Tendulkar) as well I write a diary almost every day even during matches I write about myself and other memorable incidents or events The six-seven hours I get after the day’s play I like to keep it to myself I’m thinking about starting a blog and also doing an online course in sports management” Panchal told The Indian Express *** ‘Thou shalt in need of thee’ Len Hutton had once uttered as he handed over the ball to Frank Tyson with England struggling to break an Australian middle-order partnership during the 1954-55 Ashes series ‘Typhoon’ Tyson was a schoolmaster a Geoffrey Chaucer and William Wordsworth fan who taught English literature Former England captain Mike Brearley is a Cambridge University postgraduate More recently Mike Atherton studied history at Downing College and became a Cambridge University blue Indian cricket too had a fair share of engineers Xaverians and even Oxons – Iftikhar Ali Khan Pataudi his son Mansoor Ali Khan and Abbas Ali Baig for example – until the turn of the century Of late though there’s a decline on the educational side Youngsters start professional cricket careers early these days and barely have time to pursue higher education Panchal once again is refreshingly different with a postgraduate degree in financial management from the Gujarat University Panchal had a feel of the Indian dressing room in 2012 when he was drafted in as a reserve for the fourth Test against England in Nagpur The team had released Murali Vijay and Ajinkya Rahane for the Ranji Trophy and Panchal came as a cover He got a valuable piece of advice from MS Dhoni “Jo dil se khelta hai uske shots se hi pata chalta hai (he who plays with his heart his shots become a reflection of his passion)” The callow cricketer was all ears in a change room full of superstars “India were trailing 2-1 in the series but the top players were so positive They talked about the process about planning the innings and I learnt a lot And they never made me feel left out despite being a reserve Once I was standing outside a team huddle but Ishant Sharma took me there” Panchal recalled The Ranji Trophy’s neutral venue switch this term made every batsman especially openers readjust Panchal has had his own methods “First of all neutral venues taught us a lot about adaptability We have played on different types of pitches this year On greentops I took a middle stump guard and tried to play close to the body and as late as possible On batting tracks or spinning tracks I played with a conventional leg or leg-middle guard” Gujarat coach Vijay Patel used the word “contrasting” to compare Panchal and his state team opening partner world record holder Samit Gohel’s batting styles “Panchal plays his shots If the first ball of a match is a half-volley he will try to hit a four Sometimes we had to tell him to control For Samit it was about urging him to play his shots Now both have better balance in their batting and they complement each other” Patel told this paper Former Gujarat Ranji team coach Mukund Parmar a domestic cricket stalwart gave a more specific low-down “Initially he (Panchal) had problems with his back-lift It was coming more from the leg side locking his front shoulder in the process Naturally he had issues with incoming deliveries and outswingers from the middle stump We did video analysis and I think he corrected it in just four-five net sessions He is a quick learner” said Parmar who was also the Gujarat Ranji team chief selector when Panchal made his first-class debut in 2008 “He also did a lot of match-situation practice keeping training cones to enhance his ability to find the gaps Now he has struck the right balance His loading part is much improved which helps him judge the length better” Parmar added “I read a book that had a Virender Sehwag interview Viru sir said ‘If you a get a boundary ball even in the very first over of the match it’s your duty to put it away’ I try to follow his philosophy” Panchal explained A sheet of paper always accompanies him to the nets It reminds him of ‘research planning visualisation implementation and analysis’” Tell him about being the Ranji Trophy’s top scorer and Panchal would say: “It feels amazing to be in the Ranji Trophy semifinals I contributed to the team which is good but our goal is to win the title” Little wonder then that the players didn’t go overboard to celebrate Samit’s world record after the quarterfinal against Orissa “We will celebrate if we win the Ranji Trophy” Panchal said He is a self-made cricketer without a personal coach “Kiran Bramhat was my coach at the (summer) camp but I never had a personal coach Even today I analyse my own game Of course I speak to Parthiv bhai (Patel) and other teammates and our Ranji team coach Vijay Patel and try to learn from them but you need to have a clear idea about your game and the areas you need to work on” *** He is now 26 Losing his father at 15 was difficult “My father was a huge cricket enthusiast He played the game at university level and was the reason why I became a cricketer He took me to a summer camp when I was 10 He admitted me to Hiramani School because it had good cricket facilities” Panchal recounted The late Kiritbhai Panchal was into share trading His untimely death was a blow to the family “My mother (Diptiben) took all responsibilities after my father passed away She started fashion designing did all the hard work to ensure I could play cricket untroubled Then my elder sister Brinda also got a job They protected me and my cricket throughout” Panchal said Parmar said the India ‘A’ team would be Panchal’s next test He is expected to get a call-up after such a fantastic season “India ‘A’ if he gets there would be a hard grind It’s very close to top-level international cricket Panchal has the potential to play for India but to reach the highest level he will have to thrive in the hard grind” Panchal doesn’t have an IPL contract But tell him to choose between IPL and English County cricket and he would hesitate “It’s a tough call IPL gives great exposure and offers a terrific opportunity to play alongside top international cricketers At the same time county cricket presents the chance to improve your skills in different conditions and become a better longer format cricketer This is hypothetical but if ever I have to decide between the two it would be extremely difficult” The beauty of the Ranji Trophy is that it throws up talents hitherto unknown Two Indian domestic cricket also-rans Gujarat and Jharkhand would be playing in the semifinal And Panchal finishing as the tournament top scorer would be further
