>>The front-page graphic, “Line of conflict” (Jan. 11, 2013, some editions) erroneously described P. Chidambaram as the Union Home Minister . It should have been Union Finance Minister .

>>The file photographs that accompanied the report, “Men in black did the dark deed” (Jan. 10, 2013) gave the name of one of the two Lance Naiks as Hamraj . It should have been Hemraj .

>>”Men in Blue look to maintain home advantage” (Jan. 11, 2013) mentioned that “England has also lost Champions Trophy and World Cup matches to India.” Actually, England has not lost a World Cup match in India. In the three World Cups that were held in India in 1987, 1996 and 2011, England met India twice and won one match and tied the other. The teams met in the semifinals of the 1987 Reliance World Cup at Mumbai, a match that England won by 35 runs. Their next meeting was in the 2011 World Cup at Bangalore. The match ended in a tie.

>>In the last two paragraphs of the report, “Spain hails Messi” (Jan. 9, 2013, Allahabad and northern editions), there were a few errors. In the penultimate paragraph while referring to the best 11-man line-up, it was mentioned that six were Spaniards and all but two were from the Spanish league. Actually all were from the Spanish league. Then, the final paragraph began as: “That selection included Ronaldo and three other Real Madrid players — Iker Casillas, Sergio Ramos and Xabi Alonso …” In all, five Real Madrid players were selected. Marcelo was the fifth. Further it went on to state: “… Iniesta, Messi and two other Barcelona players, Gerard Pique and Xavi Hernandez.” In fact, Barcelona too had five players in the World XI. Daniel Alves completes the list.
