Also, the website of the Indian high commission continues to be intermittently blocked causing inconvenience and affecting the normal functioning of the mission, the sources said. “We have asked the Pakistan government to investigate these incidents and ensure that such incidents do not recur and share the result of the investigation with us,” a source said. The Note Verbale was sent today to Pakistan’s Foreign Ministry “protesting against the intimidation and harassment” of Indian High Commission officials. This was the 13th Note Verbale this year on the subject, the sources said. Yesterday also, India had sent a Note Verbale to Pakistan through its high commission and in the communication, it had specifically mentioned two incidents of harassment — one yesterday and the other on March 15. The 13th Note Verbale to Pakistan foreign ministry comes days after Islamabad called its High Commissioner home for consultations, which was termed by India as “routine” and “normal”.


Rohit Sharma became the third Indian player to score 7,000 runs in all T20s during the Nidahas T20 tri-series final between India and Bangladesh in Colombo on Sunday.

Prior to the match, Sharma needed 26 runs to reach the milestone and a few big shots at the start of India’s chase of 167 saw him reach there in the blink of an eye.

With that, Sharma joined Suresh Raina (7378) and Virat Kohli (7095) in scoring 7,000 runs in all T20s. Mumbai Indians, Sharma’s IPL franchise were quick to congratulate him on Twitter.
