all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan hailed the South Asian team’s new-found aggression (Source: AP) Top News Bangladesh captain Mushfiqur Rahim and all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan hailed the South Asian team’s new-found aggression believing that beaten Australia will have far more respect for them in the second and final test at Chittagong next week As well as matching the skills of their opponents Wednesday’s maiden test win over Steve Smith’s men bore witness to a meaner streak among players keen to engage in verbal volleys with the tourists at the Shere Bangla National Stadium Shakib led the way by giving Nathan Lyon a send off while Tamim Iqbal and others were involved in brief altercations with the Australians as Bangladesh staved off a late Pat Cummins assault to claim a thrilling 20-run victory “Australians are very good at it we are learning from them” Shakib whose all-round brilliance with bat and ball earned him man of the match honours said afterwards “After this test match they will show a lot more respect” Shakib’s pre-series suggestion that Bangladesh could win both matches bemused many but also indicated the growing self-belief of a team who have registered their first test victories over England and Sri Lanka in the last year “These wins will help us become confident” Mushfiqur said “These experiences count a lot When we face similar situations we can handle them better “They (Australia) showed aggression but at the same time they also realised how aggressive Bangladesh can be not only while playing but also in our body language” Mushfiqur claimed Australia’s predicament was evident when Glenn Maxwell indulged in a bit of time-wasting to avoid facing an extra over before lunch on Wednesday The delaying tactic had little effect as he was dismissed immediately after the break “A team like Australia who always try to dominate the opposition were not willing to play an extra over before the break That’s a big statement” he said The thrilling win triggered wild celebrations in the stands where the crowd included Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and elsewhere in the capital Former captain Habibul Bashar hailed the role of Shakib and opener Tamim calling them role models for young cricketers in the country as both players celebrated their 50th test appearances with strong performances “These two players are a class apart because of their ambition to be compared to the best players in the world” Bashar told Daily Star newspaper “Their hunger for success is unmatchable and they have developed a professional mindset which separates the current generation of cricketers from previous cricketers” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Express Web Desk | New Delhi | Updated: June 15

the same team” Root said on Thursday as his side look to build on their 1-0 lead in a four-match series “It gives us a great balance if spin does come into it later in the game but it might be that

fond memories of England’s last visit to Trent Bridge – where Broad also plays his county cricket – as Australia were skittled out for just 60 in 2015 with Broad starring taking 8-15 “We’ve got great

cent of the total population in citiesIndia and China were overwhelmingly rural and equally urban In 1990tooat 25-26 per cent of the totalthe urban proportions were similar By 2011howevera dramatic gap had appeared At the end of 2011the Chinese government saidChina was 51 per cent urbanwhereas that figure for India was only 32 per cent Urban China has stolen a big march over urban India in the last two decades Scholars have always been sceptical about official Chinese statistics It is also unclear how urban is defined in China During my recent visitIfor examplecould not get a clear answer from Chinese experts about the definition of the urban Urban is what the Chinese government calls urbanit seems But however one may cut the statistical clothdriving along Chinas industrialised eastern coast tells a clear tale Not even the most urbanised states of India look comparable: not Tamil Nadunot Gujaratnot Maharashtra The partial exception is greater Delhi Pictures and accounts from the Chinese interior also do not lookor soundas rural as those from Indias least urbanised states China today is undoubtedly much more urbanised than India Why is that so And who has paid for Chinas urban transformation While firmer answers must await careful scrutinywe can begin to generate some early ideas for reflection and debate The first questionsome might sayis straightforward As my seminar interlocutors in Beijing and Guangzhou arguedChinas per capita incomecompared to Indias todayis roughly three times as high At higher levels of incomesocieties tend to be more urban (and also generally less poor) But this argument begs an important query Is China more urban because it is richeror is China richer because it has pursued urbanisation more vigorously What is the cause What is the effect Development theory and historical experience make it clear that agricultural and rural incomes simply cannot grow as fast as industrial and urban incomes In developing countrieswhen agriculture grows at 3 per cent per yearthe performance is called good; when industry grows at that ratewe call it disappointing Industry is known to have grown at 8-10 per cent per year for several decades in successful developing economies No developing agriculture has ever grown at that rate for more than a few years Agriculture simply cannot grow as fast as industry on a sustained basis It follows that the greater the industrial or urban growth ratethe greater an economys overall output An unrelenting focus on agriculture and a neglect of cities simply hurt the pursuit of larger incomes and welfare An elementary principle of development is that for societies to become richeragriculture must decline and cities must rise The debate can be on: how should agriculture decline What are the best terms But decline it must Gandhis village republics can only be poor and contentednot rich and happy Indias past lived in villages Its future will reside in cities Thereforeit makes sense to ask how China urbanised so rapidly No society in history has ever added 350-400 million people to its cities in a matter of two decadesas China has done since 1990 And no society has pulled more people out of poverty as quickly A stark difference between India and China has to do with the ownership of land In Indiaa large proportion of land is privately owned In Chinathere is no private property in land Rural land belongs to collectivesurban land to governments Citizensfirmsorganisations have only user rights over landno ownership rights As a consequenceonce the government sponsors an industrial or urban project factoriesmetroshigh-speed trainsbridgesroadshousingcommercial buildings it faces little legal contestation Chinese governments can easily claim that urbanisation is in the public interest and individual interests must be sacrificed for the greater good of society Confident that no legal challenges can deter them60 per cent of the provincial cities are currently planning to build metros From an Indian perspectivethat is truly staggering Only Delhi metro and to some extentKolkata have gone smoothly If legal contestation is ruled outcan Chinese citizens mount political
