Despite being constantly on the move and staying in makeshift accommodations, construction workers in Ho Chi Minh City still move forward and are ready for whatever comes next. Makeshift shanties erected at a construction site, secluded at a swamp next to the Saigon River, along Ven Ho Trung Tam Street in Thu Duc City, are where Nguyen Van Kiet, a 29-year-old construction worker, and more than a dozen co-workers have called home for the past several weeks. The site is filled with noise and dust, and piles of construction materials are strewn across the area. With walls temporarily built from corrugated iron and floors from planks of wood, the shanties, which double as the workers’ living and sleeping space, will be removed as construction nears completion. These makeshift accommodations lack the basics like a kitchen and toilet. Construction is ongoing at a building site in Ho Chi Minh City.

The 24-year-old from Indore dismissed Dhoni and South Africa's Faf du Plessis for his two wickets during Delhi Capitals' seven-wicket win over CSK, in Mumbai, on Saturday. "Three years ago, I had a chance to take Mahi bhai's wicket, but somebody had dropped the catch. But now my dream of taking Mahi bhai's wicket is fulfilled, so I am very happy about it," Avesh said in a release issued by the franchise.

KATE Garraway likened husband Derek's return home to bringing back a newborn for the first time. Hosting Good Morning Britain today alongside Susanna Reid, Kate revealed she was "overwhelmed and over the moon" to have Derek home after his year-long hospital stay. She said: "I want to thank you so much for your incredible messages. Derek came home Wednesday evening. We sort of feel over the moon and overwhelmed in equal measure. It is quite an overwhelming responsibility. "Do you remember the day you bring home your firstborn, and you've been planning for nine months, you get home and think 'what the heck do we do now?' Completely overwhelming and wonderful." Derek was left in a coma for months after being ravaged by coronavirus complications that caused his organs to shut down. It is hoped the return home and the regular stimulation of his family will help aid Derek's recovery. Kate continued: "And they [kids] have been absolutely loving it and been really helpful. … [Read more...] about Kate Garraway likens Derek’s return home to bringing back a newborn for the first time as she’s left ‘overwhelmed’
