  1. LONDON: Reigning champions Australia will be the team to beat when the 11th edition of the Women´s World Cup gets under way in England this weekend. Led by Meg Lanning, the outstanding batsmen in the women´s game today, Australia will be looking to win their seventh title in a tournament that now features the world´s top eight one-day international sides. Australia swept aside South Africa by 103 runs in a recent warm-up match, while South Africa themselves skittled out the West Indies, the reigning women´s World Twenty20 champions, for just 63 in another warm-up game. Meanwhile England, Australia´s perennial rivals in the women´s game, needed fewer than 28 overs to reach a meagre target of 131 against another fellow previous World Cup-winner in New Zealand. Organisers will hope that any rustiness has been chipped away come the start of the tournament proper and that there is a repeat of the excitement generated during last year´s women´s World Twenty20 in India. "Our last global (women´s) event was won by the West Indies," International Cricket Council chief executive David Richardson told AFP during a conference call earlier this week. "I know that it´s easier to be more competitive in the Twenty20 format than it is in the 50-over one, but I think this tournament will show the talent that is available out there," the former South Africa wicket-keeper added. A final at Lord´s on July 23 will mark the culmination of 31 matches also played at county grounds in Bristol, Derby, Leicester and Taunton. All the fixtures will be streamed live, with 10 broadcast on television in another sign of the growing global interest in women´s cricket. ´High standards´ Lanning, the only player to have hit 10 centuries in women´s ODIs, said that external pressure on Australia was as nothing compared to that generated by her squad as they look to follow up their success in India four years ago. "We´ve got pressure on ourselves to perform well, we hold ourselves to very high standards and we want to uphold them," she explained. Meg Lanning Meanwhile West Indies captain Stafanie Taylor accepted her team needed a different approach compared to the one that served them so well in Twenty20 cricket. "When it comes to 50 overs, it´s all about a different mindset. You have to be patient, it´s a longer format, and you do have time." Tournament hosts England and India, a team who´ve enjoyed success in English conditions in recent times, launch the competition in Derby on Saturday. New Zealand and Sri Lanka meet in Bristol on the same day,with Australia, Pakistan, South Africa and the West Indies all waiting in the wings. England won the World Cup on the two previous occasions they staged the tournament, triumphing in the inaugural 1973 edition and again in 1993, as well as lifting the trophy in Sydney in 2009. England, for all their squad are now full-time professionals, have talked down their chances with captain Heather Knight saying the initial target is to get to the semi-finals. But predecessor Charlotte Edwards, who retired from international duty last year, said: "I don´t believe for one minute that England feel like getting to the semi-finals will be a success. "They are more than capable of winning this tournament." England will be bolstered by the return of talented wicket-keeper/batsman Sarah Taylor following a stress-related illness. Meanwhile India captain Mithali Raj summed up the spirit of defiance in a women´s game that wants to be appreciated on its own terms. Asked by a reporter who her favourite men´s cricketer was out of the India and Pakistan teams at a pre-World Cup dinner in London on Thursday, the experienced batsman replied: "Do you ask the same question to a male cricketer? Do you ask them who their favourite female cricketer is? "I have always been asked who´s your favourite cricketer but you should ask them who their favourite female cricketer is," she added.
  2. Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed has sent his best wishes to the national women?s cricket team ahead of the ICC Women?s World Cup 2017, scheduled to begin from Saturday, June 24. In a video message shared by the ICC, the Champions Trophy-winning captain wished best of luck to the Girls in Green and gave some valuable advice. ?Keep things simple, be positive and give a good fight out on the field. If you play with a positive mind and good intentions, your destination will be clear,? he said. Pakistan women?s team, led by Sana Mir, plays its first game of the 2017 World Cup against South Africa on Sunday, June 25. Pakistan Women defeated West Indies Women by 5 wickets in their first warm-up match, but lost to Australia Women by 8 wickets in their second warm-up game on Thursday.
  3. New York Jets owner Woody Johnson - File photo:Reuters US President Donald Trump will nominate National Football League team owner Woody Johnson as US ambassador to Britain, the White House said on Thursday. Johnson, a billionaire investor and owner of the New York Jets, will require Senate confirmation to take up the diplomatic post. Johnson's nomination does not come as a surprise. In January, Trump referred to Johnson as "ambassador" during remarks at a luncheon and said the NFL team owner was "going to St. James."
  4. Ahead of the ICC Champions Trophy, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) surprised everyone by inviting fresh applications for the job of their national team's coach. With the availability of Anil Kumble who took the Indian team to new heights within a year of his appointment, the move clearly made no sense. While many would have expected Kumble to get an automatic extension, the BCCI claimed that his contract - which supposedly lacked a performance clause - was flawed and had, thereon, instigated their decision to invite new applications for the coaching job. But, there was something much bigger and more serious that had in fact led to those developments. Soon, reports of an alleged rift between Kumble and Virat Kohli surfaced which had everyone speculating. However, the Indian captain quashed all those reports, labelling them as nothing, but mere speculations. Since then, the BCCI's Committee of Administrators (COA) and Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) were busy brokering a deal between Kumble and Kohli. And, while many believed that the duo would eventually work their differences out for the betterment of the team, the cat is finally out of the hat. Thank you! — Anil Kumble (@anilkumble1074) June 20, 2017 Kumble has stepped down as Team India's coach citing his untenable differences with skipper Kohli as the main reason. But, what really happened? What were the differences between the two? And, more importantly, how on earth did the BCCI ended up making a complete mess of the situation? We're confused. Headmaster, Not A Coach? © BCCL Ever since his appointment as coach, Kumble brought his valuable expertise and vast knowledge of the game to the Indian team. The veteran leggie introduced new drills in training, contributed to the development of bowlers and was nothing less than a father-figure to the Indian players. For a man who played cricket on his own terms - aggressive and with the desire to win, Kumble was looking to inject similar notions in the Indian team. However, irrespective of his agenda, the Indian players including Kohli weren't happy with the ways of their coach. The players claimed that there was no freedom in the dressing room and insisted that Kumble did not enjoy cordial relations with them. Other than that, there were consistent differences between Kohli and Kumble on the team selection. And, more recently, his half-an-hour dressing down session where he blasted the players for their shambolic show in the ICC Champions Trophy final apparently didn't go down well with the Indian cricketers. Wait, what? So the Indian players want a coach that says 'it's ok, let's move on' after a forgetful outing. Someone who is not a hard taskmaster. Probably the one who allows them to go shopping and not really question their performances. It's like a school kid complaining about his strict teacher, only to realise his/her importance later in life. Did Kohli Betray Kumble? © BCCL It is a known fact that Kohli shared a very close relationship with then Team Director Ravi Shastri who was considered a front-runner for the post of India's coach. While Kumble's appointment ahead of Shastri for the top job clearly surprised many, the former Indian spinner probably did all he could to ensure Kohli didn't really miss Shastri. During the second Test against England in November last year, Kumble threw his weight behind the Indian captain who was being accused of ball tampering. Much earlier in his career, it was Kumble who had backed Kohli to the hilt in Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) by retaining him after the first three years in the IPL. So much so that, in February this year, Kohli had himself revealed how Kumble helped him use his aggression and channelise it for the greater good. Then, what really changed in the past few months? How can you laud someone by highlighting his importance and then completely make a U-turn to brand him as someone who's impossible to work with? If that's not betrayal, what is? What Was The BCCI Doing? © BCCL Irrespective of the amount of runs they've scored or the popularity they enjoy, no cricketer should be allowed to dictate terms on the matters concerning the team as a whole. While a captain is surely allowed to express his views, at the end of the day, he is not above a cricket board. If that's the case, then why was the BCCI quietly following Kohli's script during the sensitive Kumble saga? This was more a clash of Kohli's personal ego against a player who has played 403 international games for India. So, what if he was a disciplinarian or a tough task-master? He led India to 12 victories in 17 Test matches and, more recently, to the final of the Champions Trophy. He was getting the results for India, nonetheless. Kohli had the opportunity to emerge as a great leader by understanding reasons of conflict with Kumble and by finding ways to rise above it. But, rather than burying the hatchet, Kohli has only set a bad precedent by asserting his superstar status and take control of the Indian dressing room. And, more importantly, the BCCI is playing into Kohli's hands by allowing him to have his way rather than stamp its authority and tell Kohli & Co. to get on with the game. Though it's a pity that Kohli couldn't rise above his differences with Kumble for the greater good of his team, BCCI's incompetence to handle the situation is surely a signal for the next coach to either bow down to what players want you to do, or suffer a fate similar to the veteran leg-spinner. A Great Failing © BCCL The entire episode will arguably go down as one of Indian cricket's greatest failings after its gifted batsman and one of the shrewdest tacticians of the game could not be on the same page. And, the chorus within the sports fraternity was no different. If it is true that @anilkumble1074 has stepped down as coach, Indian cricket has let itself lose an outstanding resource. — Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) June 20, 2017 India are losing a Great man in @anilkumble1074 ... realty hope he stays in some role .... far too good a bloke to lose ... #India — Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) June 20, 2017 The fact that Kumble will not go to West Indies shows how hurt he is the way he's been treated. Not the way to treat a legend. — Zakka Jacob (@Zakka_Jacob) June 20, 2017 My biggest teachers was coach Uwe.I hated him!But stuck with him for 20 years.He always told me things I did not want to hear.#justsaying — Abhinav Bindra (@Abhinav_Bindra) June 20, 2017 Sometimes that's the important part of training 🙈 I remember my sir doing the same...he still does it!!! — Gutta Jwala (@Guttajwala) June 20, 2017 Not surprised w/Kumble quitting-no self-respecting wud've carried on n such environment!Crkt Ind needed 'Jumbo' more than other way around?! — Bishan Bedi (@BishanBedi) June 20, 2017 Whether losing Kumble as coach is good or bad for Indian cricket, only time will tell. But, while Kohli's ego clearly won the battle, the Indian cricket team undeniably lost a coach who will surely be hard to replace, especially with the World Cup just two years away.
  5. After losing the ICC Champions Trophy to arch-rivals Pakistan, the Indian cricket team received another massive blow after coach Anil Kumble stepped down from the top job. He took to Twitter to thank BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) for giving him the opportunity to coach Team India which is currently under the captaincy of Virat Kohli. Thank you! — Anil Kumble (@anilkumble1074) June 20, 2017 Kumble, who is 46-years-old, was given the responsibility in June last year and has so far led the team to 12 victories in 17 Test matches alongside eight ODI wins. In his letter, he mentioned that he was informed only recently that the Indian captain had “reservations” with his ‘style' and him “continuing as the Head Coach”. And despite the board's attempts to resolve the misunderstandings between Virat Kohli and Kumble, he felt it was best for him to move on. Apparently, the CAC (Cricket Advisory Committee) that includes Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman and Sourav Ganguly had meetings with both Kumble and Kohli to sort things between the two, but it didn't work out. © Reuters Speculations of differences between him and Kohli had been doing the rounds for quite some time now and his resignation has established the ground for all those rumours. Kumble further added that “Professionalism, discipline, commitment, honesty, complementary skills and diverse views are the key traits I bring to the table. These need to be valued for the partnership to be effective.” Kumble's resignation has put the Indian team in a difficult spot, especially when they are gearing up for the limited-overs series in West Indies. Although his one-year contract expired at the end of the Champions Trophy, he was given a choice to travel to West Indies with the team. However, he chose to stay back for the ICC ‘Annual Conference' in London. A legendary leg spinner of his generation and a well-reputed name in Indian cricket, Kumble's decision to step down has not only left a void in the team but also in the hearts of his fans. Harsha Bhogle and other sports personalities came forward to mourn one of the biggest losses to the Indian cricket team. If it is true that @anilkumble1074 has stepped down as coach, Indian cricket has let itself lose an outstanding resource. — Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) June 20, 2017 "Virat Kohli Had Reservations About My 'Style' & My Continuing As Head Coach"- Anil Kumble Most Humble Cricketer Gets Such A Treatment?Sad! — Sir Ravindra Jadeja (@SirJadeja) June 20, 2017 Ace shooter, Abhinav Bindra and badminton player Jwala Gutta too took to Twitter to comment on this issue. My biggest teachers was coach Uwe.I hated him!But stuck with him for 20 years.He always told me things I did not want to hear.#justsaying — Abhinav Bindra (@Abhinav_Bindra) June 20, 2017 Sometimes that's the important part of training 🙈 I remember my sir doing the same...he still does it!!! — Gutta Jwala (@Guttajwala) June 20, 2017 Cricket fans seemed to be deeply hurt by Kumble's resignation. Some of them even criticized Captain Kohli and took digs at the differences between the two. The fact that Kumble will not go to West Indies shows how hurt he is the way he's been treated. Not the way to treat a legend. — Zakka Jacob (@Zakka_Jacob) June 20, 2017 Kumble stepping down is a huge blow. Team need people like him in this transition phase. #KumbleQuits — Mouli Mallina (@moulitalks) June 20, 2017 Kohli: Sir team meeting mein pitch pe discuss kar lete hain. Sehwag: Wo sab ho jaayega.

Too much disciplined, intelligent, and visionary to coach this team. — Shuvro Ghoshal (@shuvro_addict) June 20, 2017 Virat Kohli after Anil Kumble steps down: — Jaideep Vaidya (@jaideepjourno) June 20, 2017 While, everyone was mourning Kumble leaving the position of Coach, there was one guy who left no stone unturned in making this opportunity his ‘claim to fame'. And that guy is none other than KRK who called Virender Sehwag a ‘desperate nautanki'. Sigh! Hey desperate Nautanki @virendersehwag congratulations, you will get chance to go to West Indies with #BCCITeam coz Anil Kumble has resigned — KRK (@kamaalrkhan) June 20, 2017
  6. Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday announced Rs10 million as prize money for each player of the winning Champions Trophy team. The victorious cricketers arrived amid tight security earlier in the wee hours of Tuesday, and were greeted with thousands of joyous fans who chanted patriotic songs and welcomed the players with garlands. A young Pakistan team stunned the world and created history on Sunday, thrashing an in-form and star-studded Indian side by 180 runs in the Champions Trophy finale at The Oval.
  7. Accenture Plc and Microsoft Corp are teaming up to build a digital ID network using blockchain technology, as part of a United Nations-supported project to provide legal identification to 1.1 billion people worldwide with no official documents. The companies unveiled a prototype of the network on Monday at the UN headquarters in New York during the second summit of ID2020, a public-private consortium promoting the UN 2030 Sustainable Development Goal of providing legal identity for everyone on the planet. The project aims to help individuals such as refugees prove who they are in order to gain access to basic services such as education and healthcare. Blockchain, first developed as a public ledger of all transactions in the digital currency bitcoin, is increasingly being used to securely track data in other fields. "Without an identity you can't access education, financial services, healthcare, you name it. You are disenfranchised and marginalized from society," David Treat, a managing director in Accenture's financial services practice, said in an interview. "Having a digital identity is a basic human right." The new platform will connect existing record-keeping systems of commercial and public entities through blockchain, allowing users to access to their personal information wherever they are. For example, refugees who have fled their country leaving behind birth or education paper certificates would still be able to provide proof of those credentials through the system. One of the main advantages of blockchain is that it allows systems of different organizations to communicate with each other, Yorke Rhodes, global business strategist at Microsoft, said in an interview. The prototype was built on top of an existing Accenture platform, which powers the biometric identity management system used by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees. Accenture and Microsoft, which worked on the prototype with managed service provider Avanade Inc, are inviting other companies to join their project. PricewaterhouseCoopers and Cisco Systems Inc are among the organizations involved in ID2020. "What ID2020 is truly focused on is bringing together an alliance of stakeholders to ensure the technology that is being developed is responsive to the needs of individuals," Dakota Gruener, executive director at ID2020, said in an interview. "Technology is only one piece of this."
  8. KARACHI: Players of Pakistan cricket team returned home, in the wee hours of Tuesday, to a grand welcome, after winning the ICC Champions Trophy 2017. A young Pakistan team stunned the world and created history on Sunday, thrashing an in-form and star-studded Indian side by 180 runs in the Champions Trophy finale at The Oval. Players begin to return separately to their hometowns after unavailability of tickets barred them from boarding a flight together. Four Cricketers have arrived in Lahore, Two will land in Karachi, while two others in Islamabad. Faheem Ashraf, Babar Azam Ahmad Shahzad along with player of the tournament Hasan Ali land at Allama Iqbal International Airport in Lahore. Captain Sarfraz Ali and Rumman Raees to arrive back home in Karachi. While Shadab Khan and Imad Wasim will be arriving at the Benazir International Airport in Islamabad around 7:30 AM.
  9. KARACHI: Pakistan Peoples? Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Monday expressed complete satisfaction on the performance of Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah and his entire team while lambasting PTI over its performance in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Speaking to the media after inaugurating a fly-over in Malir the PPP chairman lauded the progress in Sindh including Karachi under his party?s government. He highlighted that sanitation work was improving and multiple roads were being built. Bilawal Bhutto Zardari added that if progress continued at the same pace, his party would surely secure its share in Karachi in the next elections. Taking a swipe at the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), Bilawal said that they are complaining that they have been held accountable during his mother Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto?s tenure and during the rule of Pervez Musharraf. The PPP leader said that every time the PML-N was held accountable during PPP rule they colluded with the establishment to remove the PPP government. He asked what accountability the PML-N leadership faced during the Musharraf years, highlighting that they had signed a document and fled the country. Training his sights on the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Bilawal Bhutto said he met with the young doctors who informed him that PTI is destroying the health services setup in the province. Taking a jab at the PTI Chairman Imran Khan, who is quite active and has a massive following on social media, Bilawal said the change Khan had promised is limited only to Twitter.
  10. RAWALPINDI: Director General Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor has extended a warm welcome to Brazilian football legend Ronaldinho and his team ahead of their Pakistan visit, scheduled for July. In a Twitter post on Monday, the DG ISPR said, ?We welcome @10Ronaldinho and his team to Pakistan 6-8 Jul 17 in coord with @leisureleaguepk. Pakistan is a peace and sports loving country.? Ronaldinho and seven other top footballers, including Roberto Carlos and John Terry, will be visiting Pakistan for exhibition matches in Karachi and Lahore. They will also meet with Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa during their visit. Ronaldinho confirms Pakistan visit in video message ?Pakistan, I am coming,? the two times FIFA player of the year, said in a video message holding Pakistan?s national flag The footballers have been invited by the organisers of Leisure League. Ronaldinho is currently the club ambassador for Spanish club FC Barcelona. He won the FIFA World Player of the Year award in 2004 and 2005. He played 97 matches and scored 33 goals for the Brazil national team. He was an integral part of the 2002 FIFA World Cup-winning team in Korea and Japan and was named in the FIFA World Cup All-Star Team.
  11. Labelled as one of the top contenders to win the ICC Champions Trophy title, the Indian cricket team fell flat on its face after a shambolic 180-run loss against Pakistan - who were not only ranked the lowest of all the sides playing in the tournament, but also happen to be their arch-rivals. On a day when literally nothing worked in their favour, Virat Kohli's side was hammered for a whopping 338 runs and then bowled out for a paltry 158 runs to concede the biggest defeat by a team in the final of an ICC tournament. © Reuters Despite boasting of a formidable batting line-up, none of the big guns including Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, MS Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh came to the rescue of India who were left reeling at 54-5 in under 14 overs of their innings. 🎥🇮🇳 The @BCCI scorecard didn't make for pretty reading, except for @hardikpandya7's blistering lone hand 76 off 43 deliveries #PAKvIND #CT17 — ICC (@ICC) June 18, 2017 Hardik Pandya gave India a ray of hope with his blistering 43-ball 76, but the explosive batsman was left fuming after Ravindra Jadeja got him run-out in the 27th over. The better team won today.. but my heart will always #BleedBlue next time team India.. @hardikpandya7 u fought so well!! — Huma Qureshi (@humasqureshi) June 18, 2017 Facing Hasan Ali, Jadeja punched the ball into the cover region as Pandya called for a run. However, rather than responding to his partner's call, Jadeja was ball-watching before leaving Pandya stranded in the middle. The young Indian batsman who was looking good for India was furious with Jadeja's exploits before taking the long walk back into the pavilion. Meanwhile #HardikPandya to #Jadeja in dressing room 😂😂😂👇 #INDvPAK #CT2017Final #PAKvIND — Amrita (@amritabirdie) June 18, 2017 While the incident was clearly part and parcel of the game, Pandya seems to have taken it to heart. The 23-year-old took to Twitter and expressed his displeasure after India's heavy loss to Pakistan. © Twitter "Hume to apno ne loota, gairo me kahan dum tha (We were looted by one of us, why blame others)," Pandya tweeted. While no one was specifically mentioned in his tweet, it wasn't hard to ascertain who was being targetted by Pandya there. But, soon after his comments, Pandya's tweet attracted a lot of flak which forced the budding Indian cricketer to delete it. The anger of Hardik Pandya on getting out showed he thought he could take us home. #attitude 👍👍 — Yusuf Unjhawala 🇮🇳 (@YusufDFI) June 18, 2017 In a game where Indian bowlers were smashed all over the park, Pandya and Bhuvneshwar Kumar were the only silver lining for their side. After the impressing everyone with the ball, Pandya also notched up a 32-ball fifty - fastest by a player in the final of an ICC tournament. He surpassed Adam Gilchrist who slammed a 33-ball half-century at the 1999 World Cup.
  12. Indian opener, Rohit Sharma was the second-highest scorer in the recently-concluded ICC Champions Trophy. The Mumbai batsman had slammed 304 runs for his side in the tournament before he took guard against a spirited Pakistani bowling attack at The Oval in the summit clash. The right-hander had recently scored an unbeaten 123 against Bangladesh and was, once again, expected to lead India's charge in the most important game of the tournament. But, continuing his own infamous batting tradition, Rohit stuttered at a time when his team needed it most, obviously not for the first time. © Reuters Chasing a mammoth total of 338 runs, Rohit was left red-faced on the third delivery of the very first over after Mohammad Amir trapped him in front of the stumps with a steaming in-swinger. For a batsman of his class and experience, Rohit was caught napping yet again in his ODI career as he was too lazy to bring his bat down to avert the LBW dismissal. Well, he clearly couldn't have done anything against a bowler of Amir's calibre, right? Wrong. For someone who has been following his international career would know that laziness and Rohit go hand in hand. There is a reason why he's been given the tag of 'sleeping beauty' in the Indian cricket team. There is even documented proof of the 30-year-old literally caught napping during the Mumbai vs Pune final in the Indian Premier League earlier this year. #VIVOIPL via @ipl — Cricket-atti (@cricketatti) May 21, 2017 Surely, Rohit doesn't have the spark or aggressiveness like Virat Kohli, Ravindra Jadeja or Shikhar Dhawan. But, what's the real reason behind his title of Team India's 'Sleeping Beauty'? Here's the answer. Talking on the cricket chat show 'What The Duck 2', Rohit revealed his love for a good sleep. "I like sleeping, but before every game, I think about myself and strategize for the match in order to prepare myself. Thus, I generally end up staying awake till late at night which is why I fail to get up on time the next morning," Rohit revealed. "My teammates who claim that I don't get up on time for yoga or cricket practice, are actually the ones who sleep without thinking about the game. That's why they get up on time, while I'm thinking about the match the entire night," he added. Apart from revealing the secret behind his slumber, Rohit also disclosed other dressing room secrets on the cricket chat show 'What The Duck 2' which is available on the VIU app.
  13. 'Pyaar Ka Punchnama' is one of those films that will always remain with the millennial. From script to the dialogues everything in the picture felt so relatable and realistic that you can watch it whenever it airs on the TV. The combination of Kartik Aaryan, Nushrat Bharucha, and Sunny Singh was spot on that it become a super hit film. Now, won’t we love to see Anshul, Chiku and Chauka ganging up again to tease our funnybones? Well, we have a news: The 'Pyaar Ka Punchnama' team is coming back for a new rom-com flick. The title of the film was announced via video, that left us wanting for more. Titled 'Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety', the film is supposed to be a three-film franchise. © Youtube This time filmmaker Luv Rajan is all set to entertain us with a new age love triangle all set to be shot in Uttar Pradesh and Delhi. This is the fourth time we will be seeing this cast together. The director has earlier shared, “When Bhushan approached me after PKP 2 what was exciting was his belief in my kind of films. Given producer Bhushan’s excellent sense of music, and unparalleled marketing muscle, I couldn’t have asked for a better association.” It is a treat to watch this trio arguing in the video. The film is set to hit the theatres on November 3. Let’s hope even this time they are able to cast their humour spell like they have done in the past.
  14. ISLAMABAD: With the cricket fever at an all-time high ahead of the blockbuster finale, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman and former captain Imran Khan has thrown in his own two cents about what Pakistan should do to overpower India. Speaking to reporters on Saturday, the World Cup winning skipper said Pakistan should bat first and then rely on their pace attack to defend the target. ?Pakistan should bat first because there is no pressure batting first. Our bowling is our biggest strength. We should rely on our bowlers to defend the target,? he said. ?But if they [India] bat first, then chances are that India will score a lot [like last time] which will be difficult to chase.? ?India?s strength is playing spin. Pakistan should play on their strength which is their bowling,? he added. The sporting world?s biggest rivalry reignites on Sunday when a resurgent Pakistan face title holders India in the Champions Trophy final at The Oval.
  15. Amongst the playing nations who were tipped as favourites, India is arguably the only team which is still in the race to win the ICC Champions Trophy this year. The Men in Blue have fired on all cylinders to win two out of their three group games in the tournament, maintaining their reputation as top contenders. Beginning their title defence with an astounding win over arch-rivals Pakistan, the Indian side showed their intent and fired warning shots to their opponents. But, in their second group match, Virat Kohli's men got a wake-up call against a resilient Sri Lankan brigade that silenced the Indian bowling unit with a brilliant batting display. © Reuters While their loss against an inexperienced Lankan team surely surprised all, those who began questioning India's form and chances in the tournament were soon forced to eat their words following a convincing win for the Kohli side against the nervy South Africans. In a tournament where teams like Australia and New Zealand struggled to find the right balance and adapt to the conditions, the Indian team didn't just tick those boxes, but also managed to keep their feet on the ground. Such has been their form that even before their semifinal tie against Bangladesh, India had already been tipped as he eventual winners. © Reuters With Pakistan running a riot against England to script an eight-wicket win in the first semifinal, social media is busy toying with the idea of a potential Indo-Pak showdown in the final. Though Bangladesh have clearly looked far from just being minnows in the tournament, the general consensus on Twitter seems to have been derived in favour of Team India. #CT17 So it's #IndVsPak for the Finals.

  16. Arguably one of the best batsmen in the world and his country's most iconic cricketer, Virat Kohli, over the years, has become a vital cog in Team India's batting line-up. Equipped with a wide array of shots, the right-handed batsmen is capable of tearing into the world's best bowling attack on his best day. But, after a series of consistent performances, the Delhi lad witnessed a rare dip in form which was evident in his team Royal Challengers Bangalore's early ouster from this year's Indian Premier League (IPL). With the demons of the IPL lurking in the shadows, Kohli faced an uphill battle to prove his mettle in the ICC Champions Trophy - a tournament where his predecessor had recorded a famous title win back in 2013. © Reuters Silencing his detractors with sublime performances, the Indian captain has enjoyed a prolific run in the tournament so far. The 28-year-old began his innings with a gritty 81 against Pakistan to script a famous win for his side. Though his dismissal for a golden duck against Sri Lanka in the very next time did raise a few eyebrows, Kohli quashed all the doubts with another influential 76-run knock against the South Africans. It's safe to say that the Indian skipper has finally regained his mojo with the willow and whatever doubt the critics had over his struggling form has also diminished. While Kohli's return to form has undoubtedly been an added bonus for the in-form Team India, his performances in the ongoing tournament has also improved his rank in the 50-over format. © Reuters Riding on some ferocious knocks, Kohli has now regained the top spot in the latest ICC ODI Player Rankings. The Indian batting sensation, who had entered the Champions Trophy 22 points behind number-one ranked AB de Villiers and 19 points behind David Warner, has managed to leapfrog the two famous batsmen. © Reuters While Kohli's ascension is surely a good sign, Indian fans will also cherish the fact that Shikhar Dhawan has made a comeback into the top 10, jumping five places to be placed 10th in the list of ODI batsmen. The Indian opener has scored 271 runs in the Champions Trophy so far and is currently the leading run-scorer in the tournament. © Reuters In the bowling department, Indian seamers, too, have benefitted from their recent performances to ascend in the list of ODI bowlers. Bhuvneshwar Kumar has vaulted 13 places to share the 23rd spot with Afghanistan's Hamza Hotak. His bowling partner Umesh Yadav has also gained two places to occupy the 41st rank, while Jasprit Bumrah has jumped three places to be 43rd in the list. © Reuters The only sign of worry, for India, seems to be their proven spin duo of Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin who have slumped down in the list of ODI bowlers. On one hand, where Ashwin has dropped two places to land at the 20th spot, his spin partner Jadeja, too, descended by three places and is now ranked 29th in the list.
  17. For a man who was seen fighting for a spot in the national side across all formats, Shikhar Dhawan has not only silenced his critics but has also repaid the faith of Indian selectors and his captain with blistering performances in the ongoing ICC Champions Trophy. The explosive opener has slammed two fifties and a hundred to aid the defending champions in the tournament. Boasting of 271 runs in three ties, Dhawan is already the leading run-scorer not just for India, but also in the tournament. On Sunday, he became the fastest to score 1000 runs in ICC ODI tournaments taking just 16 innings to cross the landmark. His exploits also helped him surpass the great Sachin Tendulkar who took 18 innings to breach the 1000-run mark. From being in the wilderness to riding the crest of a massive wave, Shikhar Dhawan's life has changed quite a few times in his seven-year international career so far. We don't know whether Dhawan possesses a Moleskine notebook or not but if he was ever to jot down his story, we won't be surprised if it was titled: How Facebook Changed My Life. © Reuters Back in 2004, Dhawan was the leading run-scorer at an Under-19 World Cup. After that, he spent more than half a decade treading water. There would be the odd sparkling innings for Delhi in domestic cricket, but things looked bleak for Dhawan as he watched younger cricketers like Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma establish themselves in the Indian side while he remained on the fringes. Then, Dhawan came across the Melbourne-based Ayesha Mukherjee - of British-Bengali origin - on Harbhajan Singh's Facebook friends' list. And since then, things have never been the same for Dhawan. © BCCL Smitten by her looks, Dhawan sent her a friend request on an impulse. By late 2009 they were engaged and in 2012, the couple tied the nuptial knot. A year later Dhawan destroyed Australia on his Test debut and carrying that form forward in the 2013 Champions Trophy, he earned the Player of the Tournament award. But, just like his international cricket career, Dhawan's love story was also full of twists and turns. While talking on the show "What The Duck 2", Dhawan revealed how he found the love of his life on Facebook and what it took to woo Ayesha. Gabbar Reveals It All! — Cricket Geek (@CricGeeks) June 12, 2017 Facebook Hottie © Instagram/shikhardofficial "Actually, I knew Ayesha through a friend of mine. She was a mutual friend of Bhajji on Facebook. So that was the time I first noticed her and she was damn beautiful," Dhawan said. If that wasn't enough, the fact that she was an amateur kick-boxer only got Dhawan excited furthermore. "She was also into kick-boxing. So it was a great combination of beauty and sports. And, I immediately sent her a friend request on Facebook," he revealed. While Dhawan was clearly bowled over by her profile, Ayesha eventually took almost a month to add him to his friends' list. "I sent her a friend request, but she didn't add me for about a month. But later when she added me, I started chatting with her on a regular basis," the Indian opener said. Love On The Internet © Instagram/shikhardofficial For a man who never really believed in a love affair on the internet, Dhawan was surprised how things unfolded between him and Ayesha on Facebook. "I never believed that internet can bind a love affair. Actually, due to Facebook, about 2-4 months before my cousin got hitched. He said he met someone through social network," he disclosed. "I told him, You're settled in Germany. Don't you have girls in Germany? Couldn't you have found a girl there? Then he gave me some reasons and then the same thing happened to me," Dhawan added. Missing A Flight © Instagram/shikhardofficial With their frequent exchanges on Facebook, Dhawan revealed an incident where he ended up missing his flight - thanks to Ayesha. "I was in Bangladesh during my stint with the Mumbai Indians. I was really bored in Bangladesh and wanted to leave the country so I reached the airport three hours early. I was sitting at the airport when I noticed Ayesha was online on Facebook. I told the lounge guy to tell me when the flight arrives since I was busy chatting with Ayesha. But, he didn't inform me and they off-loaded my luggage and I eventually ended up missing my flight. I think it was destined to happen. Ayesha came online again and we chatted for another couple of hours," Dhawan revealed. The Proposal © Instagram/shikhardofficial While many are skeptical over the idea of trusting someone online, let alone marrying them, Dhawan clearly felt the other way around. "After two months, I realised that she's the one for me. I proposed her somewhere around Valentine's Day. I guess on 13th February. I had planned to celebrate 14th February with her, so I proposed her a day before. After that I married her in about an year," Dhawan said. After tying the nuptial knot in 2012, the Indian opener and Ayesha are now happily married. Ayesha already had two daughters from her first marriage - Rhea and Aliyah - when she married Dhawan. And, in early 2014, she gave birth to a baby boy named Zoravar. Apart from his love story, Dhawan also shared other backroom stories on the talk show "What The Duck 2" which is available on VIU app.
  18. Imad Wasim reacts after getting AB de Villiers out on golden duck/Getty Images All-rounder Imad Wasim has been making headlines for all the right reasons following Pakistan?s stunning win against South Africa. His wicket of Hashim Amla set the stage for the impending collapse. But that?s not all; he also became the first man to give Protean skipper AB de Villiers his first golden duck of the career. De Villiers, the world?s number one ODI batsman, had known only six ducks in his 211 innings ? none of them golden. But little did he know ahead of Wednesday?s fateful innings that a left-arm spinner whom he had never faced in his life would give him that unwanted record. ?Oh, it happens in cricket,? Imad Wasim laughed it off in an interview to the ICC. ?Sometimes you get hit, sometimes the other guy gets out. It?s just cricket. You should not be carried away or feel too low by this. He hit a shot and got out, so I think I?m really lucky.? Courtesy: ICC ?He is such a big player. I see it from the team?s point of view. If AB de Villiers gets out early, and you know what he can do if he stays for a long time, so we were just very happy that he got out. It didn?t matter that he got out on zero or one,? said Imad. The 28-year-old said Pakistan team is a different unit when the players play with the intensity observed in the match against South Africa. ?I?ve said this before also, we can do anything on any day,? Imad said. ?All we need to change is to put up this sort of performance every time. Whether we win or lose is separate. If we had played with such intensity against India, we could have won or lost, but you can see the difference. The way the boys bowled and fielded, it was fantastic to see our lads play like that. We are a different unit if we play with this intensity, if we don?t relax or don?t become lazy.? The all-rounder remarked that the win has given Pakistan renewed hopes of making it to the semifinals and that the team would bring on its best against Sri Lanka on Monday. ?When you win, the morale that is there is different. If we think too much about having beaten South Africa we might be flat again, but we are aware that it?s a do or die match for us. We?ll treat it like a knockout match and not worry about the result. Hopefully, Pakistan and the world will get to see a great performance.? Pakistan?s next match in Cardiff is all the more special for Imad, as the city is just 40 miles away from Swansea, his birthplace. ?Yes the next match is in Cardiff, so there is that,? he said. ?Last year when I played against England, the crowd was supporting me a lot. I?m very thankful to them and to the Pakistan fans who give me so much love. Today it felt like we were playing in a home ground. It was fantastic, it is great fun when our crowd turns up like this.?
  19. ISLAMABAD: A five-member legal team reached The Hague on Thursday over the case of Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav's case in International Court of Justice (ICJ). According to sources, Pakistan will present the names of two former chief justices, Nasir-ul-Mulk and Tassaduq Hussain Jillani, and one ex-attorney general, Makhdoom Ali, for the ad hoc judge from its side in ICJ. The ICJ will post one out of the three suggested people as the ad hoc judge from Pakistan's side, while that from India's side is already appointed at the court. As per the ICJ rules, if the citizen of a state party is not a judge in the court then they can get an ad hoc judge appointed on the panel hearing the case. The meeting will start at 3PM Pakistan time, where the Pakistani legal team, headed by Attorney General Ashtar Ausaf Ali, will meet ICJ President Ronny Abraham. The next date of hearing over the case will also be decided at the meeting. The hearings over Jadhav's case were held in ICJ on May 15 and then May 18, after India approached the court against Pakistan, accusing the country of violating the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations. The move came after Pakistan handed death sentence to Jadhav in April and denied India consular access to him.
  20. The Indian cricket team began their ICC Champions Trophy campaign with an emphatic win over arch-rivals Pakistan. In a rain-curtailed match, the Men in Blue inflicted a 124 runs (D/L) defeat on the Pakistani team. Rohit Sharma (91), Virat Kohli (81), Shikhar Dhawan (68) Yuvraj Singh (53) and Umesh Yadav (3-30) were all on fire for Team India who fired as a collective unit. While all the Indian cricketers mentioned above impressed with their performances and gave the defending champions a winning start, none of them can claim to be the 'Bahubali' of Team India which is reserved for one special individual. He is neither a batsman, nor a bowler. He is not even an all-rounder. And, we're not talking about MS Dhoni either. The 'Bahubali' of the Indian cricket team is none other than opening batsman Dhawan's son, Zoraver. Alwys lovely meeting bhajju pajhi,punjabi sher khatey ho gaye @harbhajan3 .😊😊🙏🏼 A post shared by Shikhar Dhawan (@shikhardofficial) on Jun 6, 2017 at 10:39am PDT The three-year-old has been bestowed upon the interesting title by none other than Rohit whose 136-run partnership with Dhawan paved the way for India's mammoth total of 319 runs against Pakistan. Enjoying at Virats Charity fundraising gala!!!! 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼 @rohitsharma45 A post shared by Shikhar Dhawan (@shikhardofficial) on Jun 5, 2017 at 12:29pm PDT The Mumbai batsman unveiled the 'Bahubali' of Team India on Instagram after sharing a video of himself alongside Zoraver and Ajinkya Rahane with the fans. A post shared by Rohit Sharma (@rohitsharma45) on Jun 5, 2017 at 7:09am PDT "Always fun when you are with the Bahubali of #TeamIndia," Rohit captioned the video. Following in Rohit's footsteps, Dhawan, too, shared a picture of Zoraver with Rohit inside the team bus. Rohit bribing Zoraver to be with him @rohitsharma45 ..😂😂😂😜😜 A post shared by Shikhar Dhawan (@shikhardofficial) on Jun 5, 2017 at 3:02am PDT "Rohit bribing Zoraver to be with him @rohitsharma45," Dhawan wrote on Instagram. Earlier, Dhawan had also posted a heartfelt message for his daughters.

While Dhawan is clearly missing his daughters, the southpaw's son, Zoraver seems to be enjoying all the limelight in the absence of his sisters.
  21. David Beckham's hopes of launching a Major League Soccer franchise in Miami took a giant step towards becoming reality Tuesday after city officials approved the sale of land crucial to a proposed stadium project. Miami-Dade County commissioners voted by 9-4 to approve the transfer of a three-acre parcel of land worth $9 million to Beckham's consortium, which reportedly hopes to launch its MLS team by 2021. Beckham's group had already purchased six acres of land next to the site for some $19 million in Miami's Overtown district. The group hopes to build a 25,000-seat stadium on the site. Beckham's group has said the cost of the stadium, which still needs to be approved by city planners, will be met by private investors with no public funds being used in its construction. Beckham announced in 2014 that he intended to bring a team to the South Florida city, exercising an option he was granted when he joined the Los Angeles Galaxy in 2007. Under that deal, Beckham was granted the right to launch an expansion team for $25 million instead of the typical fee estimated at more than $100 million. But the former England, Manchester United and Real Madrid midfielder ran into a series of problems finding a stadium site, failing with bids for three other potential locations amid local opposition. Major League Soccer chiefs, meanwhile, have repeatedly warned Beckham's group that the clock was ticking on their franchise plans and that the league will not grant an open-ended time-frame to get the expansion team off the ground. Members of the Beckham consortium made a presentation to residents of Overtown last month to outline their plans for the site. Tim Leiweke, who is handling negotiations for the group, admitted the consortium had faced "issues." "We have had bumps in the road," he said. Although the proposed stadium would not open until 2021, Leiweke told the meeting the new team could launch before that by playing at the Marlins Park baseball ground or the Miami Dolphins' Hard Rock Stadium.
  22. It isn’t every day that the biggest names in international cricket get together to create something amazing for their fans. In one such instance, our favourite captain Virat Kohli got his IPL team Royal Challengers Bangalore together to co-create a product for their fans, Himalaya Men. After months of brainstorming and research, the result was a face wash created for active men just like them! The Himalaya Men Active Sport Face Wash was truly co-created keeping in mind the issues the players face like sweat and dirt. The face wash cleanses the skin by removing oil, sweat and dirt from your skin, leaving you refreshed and rejuvenated. The team actually took out time to share their inputs about the face wash before the manufacturing stage. Now that’s truly an active face wash for sportsmen created by sportsmen! For those of you wondering what’s actually in face wash, well, we hear that it has herbs like ginseng, along with orange and mint to keep your skin fresh. Rest, you can hear from the horse’s mouth itself! Here’s a cool video of the RCB team getting candid about their unique co-creation with Himalaya Men.

  24. Pakistan's first match will be against South Africa on June 25. Photo: AFP/file Lahore: Pakistan women cricket team left for England early Friday morning to participate in the ICC Women?s World Cup 2017, which will be held from June 24 to July 23 in England and Wales.
