NewsGram brings to you current foreign news from all over the world.

Cricket Australia (CA) have confirmed they will need a caretaker coach for the three-match T20 series at home with head coach Darren Lehmann to accompany the Test squad to India for their overlapping tours in February.

Hussey, a 79-Test veteran, was in India earlier this year as a batting consultant with Australia for the World T20 tournament. Before that he was the assistant coach with Australia A for their four-day games against South Africa A and India A.

“I’m already interested in it (coaching), definitely, but I’m not sure I’m keen to be in it in a full-time capacity because if you’re with an international team you’re pretty much on the road for 10 months a year and that’s certainly one of the reasons why I retired,” Hussey was quoted as saying in Cricket Australia’s website on Monday.

“It’s certainly not something that I’m in the short term looking to get back into on a full-time basis, but perhaps down in the future and certainly coming in as a consultant type and helping out for a few weeks here or there, is something that’s really interesting.”

The 41-year-old said in March he wasn’t keen on a full-time coaching position due to the demands of international cricket but was open to pursue short-term roles. (IANS)

Google’s admission that it had in 2014 inadvertently coded the 112 distress number and the UIDAI helpline number into its setup wizard for Android devices triggered another controversy on Saturday as India’s telecom regulator had only recommended the use of 112 as an emergency number in April 2015.

After a large section of smartphone users in India saw a toll-free helpline number of UIDAI saved in their phone-books by default, Google issued a statement, saying its “internal review revealed that in 2014, the then UIDAI helpline number and the 112 distress helpline number were inadvertently coded into the SetUp wizard of the Android release given to OEMs for use in India and has remained there since”.

However, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) recommended only in April 2015 that the number 112 be adopted as the single emergency number for the country.

According to Google, “since the numbers get listed on a user’s contact list, these get  transferred accordingly to the contacts on any new device”.

Google was yet to comment on the new development.

Meanwhile, French security expert that goes by the name of Elliot Alderson and has been at the core of the entire Aadhaar controversy, tweeted on Saturday: “I just found something interesting. I will probably do full disclosure tomorrow”.

“I’m digging into the code of the @Google SetupWizard app and I found that”.

“As far as I can see this object is not used in the current code, so there is no implications. This is just a poor coding practice in term of security,” he further tweeted.

On Friday, both the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) as well as the telecom operators washed their hand of the issue.

While the telecom industry denied any role in the strange incident, the UIDAI said that he strange incident, the UIDAI said that some vested interests were trying to create “unwarranted confusion” in the public and clarified that it had not asked any manufacturer or telecom service provider to provide any such facility.

Twitter was abuzz with the new development after a huge uproar due to Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) Chairman R.S. Sharma’s open Aadhaar challenge to critics and hackers.

Ethical hackers exposed at least 14 personal details of the TRAI Chairman, including mobile numbers, home address, date of birth, PAN number and voter ID among others. (IANS)
