India's central bank cut interest rates for the third time this year on Tuesday in a bid to further spur Asia's third-largest economy, with inflation well below its target level. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) lowered the benchmark repo rate — the level at which it lends to commercial banks — by 25 basis points to 7.25 percent with immediate effect. It was in line with analysts' expectations and marked the RBI's third cut in five months, raising the amount the bank has sliced off the key rate in 2015 to 75 basis points.
Mexico will hope to recover from a shocking 2-0 setback against Mali when they take on Uruguay at the FIFA U-20 World Cup. While the junior Aztecs were being stunned, the South Americans began their tournament with a narrow win over Serbia, courtesy of a goal from mercurial midfield ace Gaston Pereiro.
Mexico’s team selection could well be affected by the two red cards received in their dire opening match. That’s bad news for a squad that really needs to be at full strength to see off a talented Uruguay team.
Here are the relevant schedule and viewing details for this Group D clash:
Date: Wednesday, June 3
Time: 4 p.m. Local time/5 a.m. BST.
Live Stream: Fox Soccer 2Go.
As CONCACAF under-20 champions, Mexico are expected to be a powerful contender at this tournament. But an almost team-wide loss of discipline derailed their chances against Mali.
Atletico Madrid forward Diego Gama was sent to the changing room early. He was soon followed by Oscar Bernal, according to AFP (h/t Yahoo Sports).
Despite also seeing a player receive red, Mali soon made their numerical advantage count. It was Barcelona’s gifted young winger Adama Traore who nudged a deft header over the line to give his nation a lead it would never relinquish.
If they are going to recover quickly, Mexico will have to control midfield. But that won’t be easy against a Uruguay team that doesn’t just count Pereiro as a star in the middle.
West Ham United’s Diego Poyet is also a schemer to watch. The 20-year-old is a loping runner who covers ground well and possesses excellent technique.
A contingent of talented playmakers will look to supply precocious, pocket-edition forward Franco Acosta with chances. The 19-year-old Villarreal prospect bagged four goals for his country at the U-17 World Cup in the UAE in 2013. His pace and instincts could certainly cause a host of problems.
For Mexico, Pachuca duo Hirving Lozano and Erick Gutierrez represent their main attacking threat with Gama set to miss out. The pair have been identified as players to watch by ESPN writer Cesar Hernandez. They are key to the quick and intricate combinations Mexico love to produce.
Winger Lozano is a particularly keen attacking talent. Still just 19, his pace, intelligent movement and close control make him a constant menace from the flanks or ghosting through the middle.
Freeing Lozano in space will be a key for Mexico, but the greater concern will be approaching the game in a more professional manner than they did against Mali. Manager Sergio Almaguer has called on his young players to keep their cool, per an AP report (h/t ESPN FC): “We need to critically analyze what happened in this game. As a team, we need to play with a bit more intelligence and focus.”
With plenty of attacking talent on display, and Mexico having to chase the game, expect goals here. However, Uruguay’s own talent means a scoring stalemate is the most likely outcome.
The Verizon Lumia 735 has been rumored as coming to Verizon since late last year until further reports from our sources pushed the phone back to “early 2015″. That earliness has slipped in late spring and after being recently outed at the FCC, the phone finally has a launch date.
Thursday, June 11 appears to be the set launch date for the mid-range phone first launched under Nokia. The Verizon variant ships with CDMA plus 4G LTE bands for Verizon’s network and presumably Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2, which may have held up the release.

It would seem that the tiny market for giant, world-traveling expedition vehicles is growing a little less tiny. Or maybe it’s just wishful thinking on the part of industry businesses. At the Overland Expo, the United States’ premier show for such vehicles, manufacturers like EarthRoamer and EarthCruiser reached out to new demographics with brand-new models. At least one manufacturer will be doing the same at this week’s Abenteuer und Allrad (Adventure and All-Wheel) show in Germany. Just a few months after showing the near-seven-figure Global XRS 7200, Action Mobil is now going after a different (still well-heeled) buyer with its entry-level Pure series.
