England beat India by 3 wickets-ODI international at The Oval

England inflicted more misery on India as Craig Kieswetter's quick-fire 51 inspired a three-wicket win over the beleaguered tourists in the third one-day international at The Oval on Friday.Kieswetter's big hitting and a nerveless 40 from Ravi Bopara, England reached their Duckworth-Lewis target of 218 in 43 overs with seven balls to spare and now have an unassailable 2-0 lead with two games in play in the five-match series.While Alastair Cook's team can move about India into fourth place in the one-day world rankings by winning the last two matches at Lord's and Cardiff, MS Dhoni's side would simply settle for leaving the country with at least one victory to their name. The injury-hit Indians were defeated 4-0 in the Test series, lost the lone Twenty20 international and have been beaten in two of three 50-over matches, with the other rained off.

Iran nuclear plant linked to grid: atomic agency

Iran's first nuclear power plant has been hooked up to the national grid supplying 60 megawatts of its 1,000 megawatt capacity, the country's Atomic Energy Organisation announced on Sunday.
"Last night at 11:29 pm (0029 IST), the Bushehr power plant was connected with 60 megawatts to the national grid," the organisation's spokesman Hamid Khadem Qaemi, told Al-Alam television.
The connection of the Russian-built plant in southern Iran to the national grid was originally scheduled for the end of 2010.
The Bushehr plant was started up in November 2010 but repeated technical problems delayed its operations, leading to the removal of its fuel rods last March.
"The capacity will gradually increase and it (is going through its) testing phase and on Shahrviar 21 (September 12) in a ceremony the power plant will reach its 40-per cent capacity," Khadem Qaemi said.
