New Delhi: Kuldeep Yadav has surged to second spot in the latest International Cricket Council rankings for Twenty20 Internationals. Kuldeep was the only bowler who escaped punishment in the Hamilton Twenty20 International against New Zealand by taking the wickets of Colin Munro (72) and Tim Seifert (43) to finish with figures of 2/26 from four overs. India lost a high-scoring thriller by four runs to lose a three-match Twenty20 International for the first time. New Zealand prolonged their pain in the shortest format as they won their eighth encounter against India in 11 games. Kuldeep’s great show in the Twenty20 International in Hamilton continued his good form in New Zealand where he was impressive in the ODIs.In the first two games in Napier and Bay Oval, Kuldeep finished with figures of 4/39 and 4/45 as India won an ODI series in New Zealand for the first time since 2009. Kuldeep is the only Indian bowler in the top 10 of the Twenty20 International rankings and he is behind Afghanistan sensation Rashid Khan.Kuldeep’s spin bowling partner Yuzvendra Chahal after an indifferent series against New Zealand, dropped six places to be 17th while Bhuvneshwar Kumar maintained his 18th rank. In the batsmen’s list, Indian vice-captain Rohit Sharma swapped three places with compatriot KL Rahul, who didn’t feature in the recently-concluded series.  The batting chart is headed by talented Pakistani batsman Babar Azam while Rohit Sharma is in seventh. Rohit, who captained the side for the last two ODIs and in the Twenty20 International series, recently became the leading run-getter in T20Is. During the Auckland clash, he smashed his 16th fifty and became only the third player after Martin Guptill and Chris Gayle to hit 100 sixes in this format. Azam, on the other hand, recently became the fastest to 1000 runs in T20Is and in the series against South Africa, he top-scored with 90 but Pakistan still managed to lose the series 1-2 to the Proteas.India will now play two Twenty20 Internationals against Australia in Vizag and Bangalore on February 24 and February 27. After the end of the two-match series, India will play five ODIs which will be their last international assignment before the 2019 World Cup which will be held in England on May 31.

How to Get Back Into the Workforce After A Maternity Leave

first_imgAt times, returning to work can stress new moms out as they think about childcare, schedules, the demands of the job and the emotions around separation. However, preparing in advance can help mitigate some of the upheavals and hopefully provide comfort during what, for many, is an amazing time.Whether you are returning in a few more months or you are gearing up for a maternity leave right now, keep reading.A Business State of MindIt is normal to feel out of touch after being out of work for a while. Get prepared by re-engaging with work colleagues, checking up on emails if you’re returning to your company, and start reading updates on what you may have missed. Try out your proposed “return to work” schedule a week before going back to work so you get reacclimated to commute traffic, saying goodbye to your little one, and the time it will take to get out the door while still packing a diaper bag, getting dressed, and having adequate snuggle time.If you are not on LinkedIn but are looking for a new, post-maternity job, I suggest that a few months before your return, you sign up and reconnect with colleagues and previous employers. Meeting with a recruitment consultant can assist you with updating your resume, conducting mock interviews, and registering for online courses to enhance your skills.Consider Asking for FlexibilityAs a mother and employee, your life is three-dimensional, and your work-life balance can become unpredictable. For example, you might need to carve time in your schedule for when you need to drop your child off at daycare or pick them up after school, and your hours may shift. So before you go back to work, you may want to consider requesting a flexible schedule. The first five years of being back to work will come with mixed emotions, stress, and occasionally having to leave work to tend to your child. Speaking with your boss about your needs, any changes to your goals, and what support you may need as you transition back can help you find balance.Workplace Rules to Live ByNow that you’re a mom, the rules may be a little different. Talk to your boss about any new expectations and changes in your abilities, as well as any company shifts that have happened while you were away. Avoid feeling left out by making an extra effort to reconnect with team members. Try attending an off-site outing with colleagues to show you are a team player interested in finding out who they are as individuals.Returning to the workplace can be a challenge, but by taking the right steps, you can make the transition as smooth as possible. 23 hours ago 23h 23 hours ago 23h 23 hours ago 23h 23 hours ago 23h Also on Glassdoor: RN, Registered Nurse – OP Chemotherapy CHRISTUS Health Houston, TX 23 hours ago 23h 4.7★ 3.0★ Registered Nurse (RN) – Charge Nurse – $7,000 Sign On Bonus EmpRes Healthcare Management Gardnerville, NV Makeda Waterman is a professional writer with an Education in Journalism, Mass Communications, and Public Relations.
