In tough conditions like this where there isn't much between the two teams, you can not afford to give away wickets like that. MS Dhoni said, "If you can take 20 wickets then you can win the test irrespective of where you play, at home or outside".
In proposals unlikely to conform with the "America First" approach advocated by the current US administration, Macron called for global action on avoiding tax competition and closing tax loopholes.
Macron also called for a more robust International Monetary Fund with a broader mandate that would include regulatory authority over parts of the financial system that now escape regulation - including cryptocurrencies and the shadow banking system.
Trump and Macron have managed to stay on friendly terms despite disagreeing on some key issues, most notably the US withdrawal from the Paris climate agreement. "We have to have a discussion about this".
"We've also chose to make France a model in the fight against climate change", said President Macron at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. "In terms of climate change, we are losing the battle". We're undoing what globalization has been able to achieve.
"If we want to avoid this fragmentation of the world, we need a stronger Europe", he said. "It's absolutely key. We have to design a 10-year strategy to make Europe an actual economic, social, green, scientific, and political power".
