Hafeez then chipped in with the crucial wicket of England captain Eoin Morgan as Pakistan stopped England at 334 for 9 in 50 overs.Speaking after the game, Hafeez said the team never stopped believing in themselves during the second innings when Joe Root and Jos Buttler were going great guns during their 130-run partnership for the fifth wicket.Root (107) and Buttler (103) both scored hundreds but once they fell, the English batting collapsed with Wahab Riaz finishing with 3 wickets while Mohammad Amir and Shadab Khan picked up two apiece.”Everyone believed we can do this. We’re really happy and everyone chipped in, taking the task and giving everything. To be honest, we were very confident and we had a good meeting together. We just needed one winning performance. It was a total team effort,” Hafeez said after being adjudged man-of-the-match.The win also snapped Pakistan’s 11-match losing streak which also included the 4-0 loss against England in the ODI series just prior to the World Cup.Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed also heaped praise on his team and called it a total team effort.”I think it’s a great team effort. Fakhar and Imam started well. The match starts at 10.30pm and the first ten overs is important. They got a good start and that’s why we got 350. We tried a few different things – we started with Shadab because they weren’t good against spinners. Fielding is an important part and it was the main difference. This gives a lot of confidence to the team,” Sarfaraz Ahmed said.advertisementAlso Read | England vs Pakistan Highlights, ICC World Cup 2019Also Read | World Cup 2019: Pakistan keep calm to upset England in high-scoring thrillerAlso Read | Jos Buttler hits England’s fastest World Cup 100Also Read | England vs Pakistan: Joe Root 1st player to hit 100 in World Cup 2019For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Survey: Majority Is Looking for Online Crew Management …

first_imgzoom CrewInspector crewing software provider conducted an online survey asking companies, which are currently searching the market for a new software, to answer the question “Why they are looking for crew management software”.Survey was conducted among participants from various industry sectors such as crew manning agents, crew recruitment agencies, ship management companies and others involved in crew management operations. Seventy percent (70%) having various reasoning revealed they are about to change their crewing software in near future and thirty nine percent (39%) are exclusively looking for online crew management software.Majority wants to go onlineThanks to the growing popularity of smartphones, tablets and constant accessibility to the internet, maritime industry sectors understand the benefit of software availability around the clock and being platform independent. Crewing operators are available around clock to support their clients – vessel operators or crew onboard with any demand that may arise. Crew managers expect the same from the software – they want to access the crew data anywhere they go and anytime they need it. Thirty nine percent (39%) of respondents disclosed that they are exclusively looking for online crew management software accessible on the internet. “For the time being it’s an end of stand-alone software era for particular industry segments, as there is no real benefit in keeping the crew database software on the office server, since nobody can’t access it unless using remote desktop tools and this is where also the speed performance problems arise”, explains Andy Lipsberg, Co-Owner of CrewInspector.License is too expensiveAlthough shipping market is far from the recovery compared to economic growth prior to year 2008, only six percent of respondents disclosed that the current software provider license fee is too expensive and they are looking for alternative and considerably cheaper crewing software options in the market. “This is however a positive trend, we see that companies are not so much concerned about the cost of the software as in most of the cases vendors provide affordable solutions matching the need and the budget of a potential client.”, adds Andy Lipsberg.Outdated software solutionsSoftware for maritime sector started to develop in late 90ties and early years of 21st century when most of vendors have been established. Since then more than 10 years have passed and if it’s a significant timeframe for shipping industry developments, it an enormous breakthrough for IT sector. Having that mind, many vendors haven’t been able to keep up to date technologies and according to survey ten percent (10%) consider their current crewing software outdated and unable to cope with current modern technology trends. That of course can have an impact on the business operations as well.When the business growsIn most of the cases, start-up companies do not heavily invest in software in the first year of operations or even longer until the managers understand that further development requires consistent and structured approach which can not be achieved without having proper crewing software in the office. Fifteen percent of respondents revealed being unable to handle further operations using common tools such as self-made crew databases in MS Excel or similar applications. Based on the experience among CrewInspector customers, crew management software is a must when monthly limit for crew onboard in average is reached at level of 50 seafarers in the merchant shipping industry.Just exploring the marketThirty percent (30%) of surveyed revealed that they are not in active search for crew management software as a replacement for their current operations, but are interested to keep up with the market and learn on the trends among various software companies and vendors providing crew manning software.
