  4. Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) successfully chased down the mammoth total of 210 set by Chennai Super Kings (CSK) to register their maiden win in the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Thursday (March 31). LSG skipper KL Rahul and Quinton de Kock gave their side the perfect start with a partnership of 99 runs. Later, Evin Lewis and Ayush Badoni provided the finishing touches to LSG's innings as they got over the line with three balls to spare. READ: @LucknowIPL secured their first victory of the #TATAIPL 2022 in style as they beat #CSK by 6 wickets in a high-scoring thriller. - By @mihirlee_58 Here's the match report #LSGvCSK — IndianPremierLeague (@IPL) March 31, 2022 CSK were ahead in the game till the penultimate over as LSG needed 34 off the last two overs. However, their decision to give the 19th over to Shivam Dube backfired big time as Badoni and Lewis tore him apart and scored 25 runs, bringing down the equation to nine off six. The fact that the last over too was bowled by an experienced youngster Mukesh Choudhary spoke volumes of how the defending champions miscalculated their plans. © Twitter/IPL After being unable to defend 210 runs, head coach Stephen Fleming blamed the dew factor for CSK's plans going haywire out in the field. Fleming compared the dew to 'Niagara Falls' and added that it took their spinners out of the contest and they knew they would be a bowler short in those conditions. Where did it go wrong for CSK in IPL 2022 first two matches? : Disney+Hotstar#MSDhoni #RavindraJadeja #IPL2022 #CSK pic.twitter.com/6izJtXZWJs — CricTracker (@Cricketracker) March 31, 2022 “If you'd looked earlier on, spinning options were taken out of play. Because it was like Niagara Falls in terms of the wetness and they(LSG) played well. So it was very hard to, one, grip the ball for a spinner and, two, to be effective,” Fleming said in the pre-match press conference. "So early on, we were one over short but they played well. We always knew we had to pick up an over somewhere - we were hoping to be able to create enough of a run-rate towards the end that we could squeeze someone in," he added. © Twitter/IPL With dew troubling the bowlers to grip the ball, Jadeja and Moeen Ali collectively bowled three overs and LSG batters capitalised on the inexperience of other bowlers and got the better of the defending champions. Well, CSK is not the only team who found it tough to cope with the dew factor and to get such a weird excuse from their head coach shows that the team is low on confidence, especially with the injury to their premier pacer Deepak Chahar.

  5. Kangana Ranaut, one of Bollywood's most popular actresses, is also dubbed ‘controversy's favourite child’. She continues to be in the spotlight due to her constant stream of opinions and controversial statements. Her infamous relationship with filmmaker Karan Johar has been in the public domain for a long time now. The rivalry, which dates back a few years, continues to make headlines. View this post on Instagram Kangana never leaves a chance to comment on KJo and in her latest social media post, she has presumably accused him once again. In her Instagram story, without naming the Kuch Kuch Hota Hai helmer, Kangana allegedly blamed him for banning her from an entertainment portal. She ended the long note by stating that "his time is up". She wrote, "In the latest news, movie mafia daddy a fading director and now failing producer as well who is desperately clinging to south superstars and their movies to save his fading career has got me banned in an entertainment website **villa where he has bought most of the stakes". View this post on Instagram The Manikarnika star further added, "And secretly runs it for his and nepotism mafia propaganda, but he is suddenly rattled and now controlling everything on grassroot level. I wonder why!!! Maybe because he realizes that his time is up and he is nervous". Take a look at her Insta story below: © Instagram In the post, she also taunted him for clinging to south superstars and movies to save his "fading career". Interestingly, Johar's production house recently acquired the rights of the Malayalam film Hridayam along with Fox Star Studios. Also, he hosted the trailer launch event of Yash-starrer KGF 2 and is producing South star Vijay Devarakonda's pan-India release, Liger. We wonder how Karan would react to the actress' accusations. This isn't the first time when Kangana has taken a jibe at the head honcho of Dharma Productions. The actress has been criticising him in public since she referred to him as the "flag-bearer of nepotism" on his show Koffee With Karan. Not Just KJo, she often slams his protegee, Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt. On the career front, she was last seen in Thalaivi in which she played the late actress-politician J Jayalalithaa and got positive reviews. The biopic was released last year in theatres, however, failed to do well at the box office as the COVID-19 pandemic played spoilsport. Also, back then, major multiplex chains refused to screen Kangana's film in North India. View this post on Instagram The actress, who recently made her reality show debut with Lock Upp, has several interesting projects in her kitty. Her lineup includes films like Dhaakad, Tejas, and Alaukik Desai's much-anticipated project Sita: The Incarnation. View the full article
  6. The sporting fraternity around the world is still coming to grips with the sudden demise of legendary Australian off-spinner Shane Warne who died of a cardiac arrest in a hotel in Thailand. Amidst the tributes flowing in from all over the world, remarks of the legendary Indian batter Sunil Gavaskar on a private news channel have angered the cricket fans. The ‘Little Master’ has been heavily slammed for his ‘classless’ comments that were devoid of empathy. © Reuters After getting bashed for his comments, the former India opener has now issued a clarification through an Instagram video and accepted that it was not the time to delve into any sort of comparison and he shouldn’t have answered the question asked by the news anchor. Even while expressing his regret for his ill-timed comments, the batting legend tried to put the blame on the news anchor saying that such a question shouldn’t have been asked in the first place. View this post on Instagram “Last week was a very traumatic time for cricket fraternity as in 24 hours, we lost two icons of the game - Rodney Marsh and Shane Warne. On TV, I was asked by an anchor whether Warne was the greatest spinner and I gave my honest opinion,” Gavaskar said in an Instagram video. “In hindsight, that question should not have been asked nor should it have been answered as it was not the right time for any comparison or evaluation,” he said. © Reuters “Warne was one of the greatest cricketers to have ever graced the game. Rodney Marsh too was one of the greatest wicketkeepers the game has seen. May their souls rest in eternal peace,” he concluded. Comments that led to huge outrage “Look at Shane Warne’s record against India. It was pretty ordinary. In India, he got five wickets only once in Nagpur, and that too because Zaheer Khan swung wildly against him to give him a fifer. Because he did not have much success against Indian players who were very good players of spin, I don’t think I would call him the greatest. Muttiah Muralitharan, with a greater success he had against India, I would rank him over Warne in my book,” Gavaskar had said during an interaction on India Today. © MensXP Gavaskar owned up to his mistakes publicly and acknowledged that he was wrong in comparing the stats of the late leg-spinner with another spin legend Muttiah Muralitharan. At the same time, he insisted that although the timing was not right it was his “honest opinion”. Once again his apology evoked mixed reactions on social media, with some fans praising the former India captain while finding faults in his ‘half-hearted’ remorse. View this post on Instagram There were people who hailed the batting legend for leaving his ego aside and accepting his mistake out in the open on a social networking platform. Owning up mistakes in public forum is always commendable — Rohan Karkhanis (@RohanKarkhanis) March 7, 2022This is greatness, this is grace, this is humility - well done SMG …… — Mohan (@Mohan51896108) March 8, 2022Sunny ji alwys maintains his level.. rectifying mistakes publicly.. Btw.. Rajdeep is boiling up my blood! — Sirajul. (@iamsirajul) March 7, 2022 Then there were people who chided him for not thinking twice before opening his mouth. They were also not happy with him trying to get clean by levelling the blame on the news anchor for putting him in a spot. You need guts to apologise but he don't have those so he is again blaming the question. @ShaneWarne will be the greatest spinner for the fans atleast. — Sarthak Singhal (@IM007sarthak) March 7, 2022That is what he should have said when the question was asked… he could have easily said that this is not the time of comparisons… — Ishiraj (@Ishiraj1) March 7, 2022To answer kyo diya, us time bolana tha, ye sahi time nahi hai answer Dene ka. — #100thTestForKingKohli (@vinu_panibhate) March 8, 2022No amount of damage control works after you have tarnished your own and the image of the people who have just passed away by giving an opinion like that. The best thing would have been if he had stopped the reporter when that question was asked. — Ranjit (@cranjit) March 7, 2022 Gavaskar is a well-respected name in the cricketing world and he can’t get away with blaming the journalist. Even though he was asked his opinion he could have easily told the anchor that it was not the time for any comparison. View the full article
  7. Virat Kohli's century drought in international cricket continued as he made 45 in the first innings of his 100th Test match. Kohli was looking at ease out in the middle before a Lasith Embuldeniya delivery went past the outside edge of Kohli and hit the top of off stump, leaving the former India captain bamboozled. It was his 71st innings without a century and while he may not have got to the three-figure mark, Kohli has been scoring runs consistently for Team India. The 33-year-old himself said that he is not bothered about the milestones and just wants to concentrate on helping the team's cause. A guard of honour from India's players for Virat Kohli as he takes the field for his 100th Test #INDvSL pic.twitter.com/yArnFlSBj1 — ESPNcricinfo (@ESPNcricinfo) March 5, 2022 Former India opening batter Gautam Gambhir, however, has identified a major flaw that has been causing trouble for Kohli against spin bowling. Gambhir said Indian players have been playing a lot of limited-overs cricket and that has hampered their game against spinners. The former India opener highlighted that players prepare for a game by majorly facing pace bowling and that has put them off their basics. © Instagram/Gautam Gambhir "One of the major concerns is that the bat is in the line of pads. When that happens, it is difficult to play deliveries that turn away as well as those that don't turn. If you keep your bat ahead of your pad, you will be beaten only on one edge. When you look at Mayank Agarwal's dismissal, he was beaten on the inside edge. In Virat Kohli's case, he was beaten on the outside edge. So, it is very important to have your bat ahead of your pad,” Gambhir said during the post-Tea show on Star Sports on Day 1 of the first Test. "This is usually taught in formative years. Nowadays, you play so much limited-overs cricket that you lose your basics, the good habits die down. You've concentrated significantly on fast bowling, so I believe Indian batters have a scope for improvement in tackling spin," Gambhir added. Huge breakthrough for Sri Lanka! Virat Kohli departs for 45 in his 100th Test, Embuldeniya gets his second wicket.#WTC23 | #INDvSL | https://t.co/ScZZovuKMu pic.twitter.com/aZ9Uk5M5bB — ICC (@ICC) March 4, 2022 Gambhir's advice makes complete sense as Kohli has had his share of trouble against spinners across the world. Keshav Maharaj troubled him in South Africa while Ajaz Patel and Rachin Ravindra got the better of Kohli when New Zealand toured India last year. Kohli will be busy in the IPL later this month and will travel to England to play the fifth Test of the five-match series that was halted last year due to a Covid outbreak in the Indian camp.

  8. One of the greatest pains in life is that of losing someone you love. Not that death isn’t inevitable, but no matter how much peace you try to make with the concept of loss, it creates a hollow in your chest that almost nothing can make up for. Now imagine that kind of a loss, that pain and multiply it 10 fold. That is what Naveen Shekharappa’s father suffered after he heard that his 21-year-old son who had gone to Ukraine to study, was killed in an airstrike by Russia. Who killed Naveen Shekharappa ?@BJP4Karnataka @INCKarnataka @JanataDal_S pic.twitter.com/dZeHlOxWDf — PLE Karnataka (@PLEKarnataka) March 1, 2022 The young and ambitious Naveen from Karnataka, who had moved abroad to study and build a better life for himself and his parents was reduced to nothing but ‘collateral damage’ in this war that Russia has waged against Ukraine. And even though the ones sitting on the other end of this strike seem to be Russian, there is no denying that our country has its own contribution to the tragic killing of Naveen. “Despite scoring 97% in PUC, my son could not secure a medical seat in State. To get a medical seat one has to give crores of rupees and students are getting the same education abroad spending less money," shared the grief-stricken father of Naveen, who was killed in Ukraine while he was out to get food from a nearby grocery store. Shekharappa Gyanagoudar, father of Indian student Naveen who was killed in Ukraine’s Kharkiv asks Govt to bring back his mortal remains. He asks Govt to also look at hefty donations that medical colleges demand, forcing Indian students to take admission abroad. ⁦@TheQuint⁩ pic.twitter.com/THKdjU1lVE — Nikhila Henry (@NikhilaHenry) March 1, 2022 Hours after news of his son being ruthlessly killed in the strike near the Governor’s House, a dejected Shekharappa Gyanagoudar spoke about how he sent his son abroad because the education system in India was so flawed. He shared, “Due to the education system and casteism, he could not get a seat despite being an intelligent student.” He also went on to say, “I am dejected with our political system, education system and casteism. Everything is in the control of private institutes..” A sentiment that is bound to come forward in light of his son’s demise. Naveen Shekharappa Gyanagoudar 21 year old from Haveri district in Karnataka studying at Kharkiv Medical University- lost his life today. Hope GOI will expedite evacuating students from Ukraine. Deepest condolences to Naveen’s family & friends. I’m sorry we failed you. pic.twitter.com/NBoloWJUiw — Divya Spandana/Ramya (@divyaspandana) March 1, 2022 He then said, “I found out that I would have to spend anywhere between Rs 85 lakh and Rs 1 crore to put him in a private medical college. That’s when I decided to send him to Ukraine, but that proved far more costly.” Crowds gather outside the home of deceased Indian student Naveen Shekharappa Gyanagoudar in Haveri, Karnataka. He was killed in shelling in Kharkiv, Ukraine. @TheQuint pic.twitter.com/WQycy4XbUB — Nikhila Henry (@NikhilaHenry) March 1, 2022 And while people will still put the outright blame of Naveen’s death on this unfortunate war between two countries, it also comes as an eye-opener for us to look into the intricacies of our education system, one whose incompetence has forced several students to move out and subsequently suffer a tragic end. Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke to the father of Naveen Shekharappa, an Indian student who died in shelling in Kharkiv, Ukraine this morning. (File pic) pic.twitter.com/OEXXs7XjiD — ANI (@ANI) March 1, 2022 Last we checked, education should’ve been a right, not a privilege for those who can throw the maximum amount of money at the table. Because in that case, children of middle-class people like Shekharappa Gyanagoudar, a retired paper mill employee, will have no choice but to sacrifice their own blood. And that is too big a gamble to ask people to make. Gyanagoudar also happened to share the last conversation he had with his son, where he was advising him to "place an Indian flag" outside the building he was in. The video of their conversation indicated how that is what minister Piyush Goyal had also advised them to do. Despite scoring 97% in PUC, my son could not secure a medical seat in State.

He said that there is a little problem. If we try to move from there, then rescue is possible. He has said that our government has talked to both the countries, both the countries have assured them that nothing will happen to the Indians there," his father was heard saying. However, Pooja Praharaj, a student coordinator in Kharkiv later shared how, “He lived near the Governor's House and had been standing in the queue for food. Suddenly there was an airstrike that blew up the Governor's House and he was killed".

In fact, several accounts of students being manhandled, beaten and stopped from moving are coming forward. View the full article
  9. After the pictures of his Hindu wedding invite got leaked online, Australia all-rounder Glenn Maxwell has revealed that it has given him an extra headache in the last couple of days. The RCB all-rounder said it was supposed to be a private event in the presence of 350 closest friends and family members but now that the details of the week-long event have made it on the internet he will have to beef up the security arrangements even further to ensure that all the functions go on smoothly without any issues. View this post on Instagram “It was not ideal. We've got to get extra security for the wedding now,” Maxwell told cricket.com.au after Australia clinched the T20I series against Sri Lanka. The reason why Maxwell's marriage is hogging so much limelight in India is because of her fiancee Vini Raman, who is an Australian citizen of Indian descent. View this post on Instagram But more than their marriage, which is set to take place in Melbourne on March 27, it’s their wedding invite, printed in Tamil, that has created a lot of buzz on different social networking sites after it got leaked online. Maxwell said that the matter was brought to his notice by a former RCB teammate who informed him that his Tamil wedding card was doing rounds on the social media and how much buzz it has created online. View this post on Instagram Describing the online leak of their wedding invite as “unfortunate”, Maxwell said that their Indian relatives perhaps got a “little bit excited” and circulated the card among their friends, in order to show off, and it eventually ended up in every major newspaper in the country. “It was supposed to be a private event and unfortunately the relatives over in India just got a little bit excited and decided to show a few friends." View this post on Instagram “Next minute, it's in pretty much every paper over there and I'm getting tweeted it by pretty much everyone. So that was a shock. It's been a busy couple of days,” Maxwell added. Maxwell and Vini, who is a pharmacist in Melbourne, had been in a relationship for quite a few years and they got engaged a couple of years ago but had to push back their marriage due to the coronavirus pandemic. Reuters The 33-year-old power-hitter is set to miss Australia’s upcoming historic tour of Pakistan due to his marriage. There is also a high likelihood of him missing a few matches in this year’s IPL. The schedule for the cash-rich league is yet to be announced but the tournament is likely to begin in the last week of March and it might overlap with his wedding. View the full article
  10. Ajinkya Rahane dropped a bombshell on Thursday when he accused Ravi Shastri and Co of taking credit for the decisions he made during India's historic win over Australia Down Under. Rahane, during an interview with sports journalist Boria Majumdar, had said that "I took the decisions on the field or in the dressing room but someone else took credit for it." The storm that Rahane caused by taking a shot at the 'credit stealers' has not even settled yet and another comment from the same interview has created another stir on social media. "I know what I've done there. I don't need to tell anyone. That's not my nature to go and take credit." Ajinkya Rahane spoke about his pivotal role in India's series win against Australia in 2020-21 https://t.co/7yH2rNuacZ — ICC (@ICC) February 11, 2022 After taking a cryptic dig at the former head coach and others, Rahane's fresh statement that has been doing the rounds is now targeted towards the selectors. The 33-year-old batter last played limited-overs international cricket back in 2018 and he cited lack of game time as the reason behind his diminishing batting prowess. Not getting game time made matters difficult. With no domestic cricket because of covid it became tough. However much you train it is not the same as game time in the middle. @ajinkyarahane88 on #BackstageWithBoria @AgeasFederal pic.twitter.com/W6P9csHfcv — Boria Majumdar (@BoriaMajumdar) February 10, 2022 "I was playing ODI cricket continuously for Team India and I was doing really well. Suddenly, I got dropped, I don't want to go into that, I don't want to go into my past but the reality is I was playing well in 2014, 15, 16, and 17. ODI and Test cricket both were going really well. After that I hardly got game time, there was a huge gap between Test matches," Rahane said. "Sometimes, the reality is, when you play only one format and especially in the last 2-3 years where there is no Ranji cricket and no other domestic games, I think that needs to be taken into account because you can't score runs sitting at home,” he added. While Rahane blamed selection for his string of low scores, fans showed him a mirror by putting out his numbers in white-ball cricket that led to his ouster from the team. And you said that unfortunately you got dropped from White ball team but in reality you got dropped because of your poor performances. Your numbers in red ball cricket are also very very poor from 2016 but still team management is giving back to back chances to you — Gutte Vaibhav (@gutte_vaibhav) February 10, 2022I respect @ajinkyarahane88 but him saying about getting dropped in white ball format is really not nice. His average is 35 in ODI and 20 in T20. 110% we have better players than that for that position and hence he was not looked. #BoriaBackstage #Rahane #IndianCricketTeam — Abhi Panchal (@iamabhi1909) February 10, 2022With due respect … Rahane has served India well but what are his credentials or success stories in t20/ white ball cricket … neither number s as player nor trophy as captian — USom_Cryptos (@USom_Cryptos) February 10, 2022 Rahane's form has been a cause of concern for Team India in the recent past and fans as well as cricket experts have been after his head. The Mumbai-batter will get a chance to get back his form in the upcoming season of Ranji Trophy, in what would be a virtual audition, and keep his place in the Indian Test team for the upcoming series against Sri Lanka at home.

  11. Virat Kohli’s Test captaincy resignation has sent shockwaves across the globe. Not just in India, fans and experts across the globe are still struggling to comprehend the circumstances which led to such a shocking decision. Pundits like Sunil Gavskar and Sanjay Manjrekar believe that after he lost the Test series in South Africa, Kohli got the idea that his Test captaincy was under threat. Courage, Passion, Grit & Determination! Thank you, @imVkohli! #TeamIndia pic.twitter.com/q36KXhiJac — BCCI (@BCCI) January 15, 2022 Hence, preempting the BCCI’s decision he vacated the post to avoid the situation that gave rise to a huge conflict between him and president Sourav Ganguly a couple of months back when he was sacked from ODI captaincy. Nobody knows what went wrong but there is a whole section of people who strongly believe the reason why Kohli stepped down from Test captaincy was due to his differences with the former India skipper, who is at the helm of the BCCI. A Historic Win! In 2019, the @imVkohli-led #TeamIndia became the first Asian side to complete a Test series win in Australia. pic.twitter.com/2lxwQ9SQ5M — BCCI (@BCCI) January 16, 2022 Kohli is the most popular cricketer in the world and it was natural that his decision affected people from across the globe, including Pakistan where is admired a lot. While announcing his decision to step down from Test captaincy, Kohli said that it was his personal choice and the BCCI president also reiterated the same but there are not many people who are buying this claim and former Pakistani cricketer Rasid Latif is one of them. A special victory in Mumbai! The @imVkohli-led unit registered a record win for #TeamIndia in terms of runs - by runs - against New Zealand in December 2021 & clinched the series 1-0. pic.twitter.com/XQCYpUmhCe — BCCI (@BCCI) January 16, 2022 Speaking on a YouTube channel, Latif said that irrespective of what two of them claimed in public space, the real reason why he resigned was because of his “tiff with the board”, which escalated to such an extent that he had no choice but to step down from his role. “The real reason why these things happen is because you have a tiff with the board. Irrespective of what Virat says that it's his decision or what Sourav Ganguly tweets, this is battle of two stalwarts,” Latif said on a YouTube channel ‘Caught Behind’. “Why did BCCI accept Kohli’s resignation so quickly? How can you accept his resignation, if you consider him a great leader? If they really liked him as a leader and wanted his stature in the Indian team to remain on high, then they shouldn’t have accepted his resignation. It seems they (BCCI) were waiting for him to resign." : Leading #TeamIndia for the first time on home soil in Tests, @imVkohli powered the side to a 3-0 series win against South Africa in 2015. pic.twitter.com/lGHmOcjG7k — BCCI (@BCCI) January 16, 2022 “Some people are emotional. They know when and how to provoke Kohli. When he announced that he won't captain India in T20Is after the World Cup, he was removed as ODI captain as well. You haven't only unsettled Kohli; you've unsettled Indian cricket,” he added. The whole world is busy trying to find out the actual reason behind Kohli’s resignation, but guess what, unless either he or Ganguly speak up, we would never know what caused him to step down despite boasting an enviable captaincy record.

  12. England suffered yet another humiliating loss in the fifth and final Test match as Australia retained the Ashes, clinching the five-match series 4-0. The Joe Root-led side, as has been the case throughout this series, once again produced a shoddy performance with the bat and were bowled out for 124 runs in their innings, thus losing the match by 146 runs in just three days. Here it is - the moment Australia sealed the #Ashes 4-0! pic.twitter.com/BFdPVnPcUb — cricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) January 16, 2022 Watching their team surrender without a proper fight was a hard pill to swallow for the English fans and experts alike. For many this was perhaps England’s worst overseas Test performance in a while. After the series defeat, many former players came hard at Root’s men, ripping them to shreds with their comments. As expected, every expert had a different opinion as to what went wrong for England. Some questioned the players’ abilities while others raised fingers on Root’s leadership capabilities. - Brisbane: AUS by nine wickets Adelaide: AUS by 275 runs Melbourne: AUS by an innings & 14 runs Sydney: Draw Hobart: AUS by 146 runs#Ashes pic.twitter.com/qyGTHLZmzY — cricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) January 16, 2022 Amidst all this, there was one comment by a former England captain David Gower that grabbed all the headlines and led to a huge outrage on social media. Gower was discussing things that led to such a humiliating defeat Down Under but instead of questioning the players and their horrendous performances, he presented that age-old rhetoric and blamed the Indian Premier League (IPL) (https://www.mensxp.com/topic/ipl.html) as one of the reasons behind his country’s failure. The 64-year-old legend argued that England players are more interested in playing in the IPL than their own country and that has made life difficult for skipper Root. "Joe Root finds himself with people unavailable, because where are they? The IPL. What good is that for English Test cricket?! This is the oldest, more important form of the game, we need to defend it." Four minutes of David Gower in full flow.

What good is that for English Test cricket?! This is the oldest, more important form of the game, we need to defend it,” Gower said on BT Sport after the fifth Test match. Clearly, the Indian fans weren’t too pleased with Gower’s comments and they gave him a hard time on social media, so much so that he had to issue an explanation on the micro-blogging site. It appears one has to explain things to the hard of hearing - I’m not against the IPL - it is a phenomenon - but I am against England contracted players being unavailable to play for England because of it. https://t.co/tJjByQQsar — David Gower (@David215Gower) January 17, 2022 “It appears one has to explain things to the hard of hearing - I’m not against the IPL - it is a phenomenon - but I am against England contracted players being unavailable to play for England because of it,” Gower wrote on Twitter. By the time, England batting great issued a clarification, the damage was already done. Among many who slammed Gower’s remarks was former Indian women’s team head coach WV Raman. Raising a pertinent question, he asked if England experts felt IPL led to their team’s “shambolic performance” , then why did the ECB introduce ‘The Hundred’. If their main contention is that playing in the #IPL results in deterioration of temperament and skills, can't be helped.. When there is a choice, each individual will opt for what he thinks is best for him.. — WV Raman (@wvraman) January 16, 2022 “Shambolic performance by England in #Ashes. Reason according to their former captains - #IPL. So, we are to assume that The Hundred will help them win WTC. I will anyday prefer listening to good old fables of Aesop..” Raman tweeted. “If their main contention is that playing in the #IPL results in deterioration of temperament and skills, can't be helped.. When there is a choice, each individual will opt for what he thinks is best for him,” he added in the same thread. Some Indian fans were so pissed that they called Gower’s remarks a reflection of his colonial mindset. They argued that some English people can’t digest that a country which once used to be their colony is now the home to the biggest T20 league in the world, while those who invented the game are playing the catch-up game. RIP Logic — faisal afzal (@faisalafzal9) January 16, 2022 And not the 100 or anything else naturally! Colonial envy I call it - though I love and respect David Gower immensely!! — PRAKASH WAKANKAR (@pakwakankar) January 16, 2022 Colonial mindset is on display here and some PSL money pic.twitter.com/mgiv733YvG — Kashish Singh Rathore (@AAforlife14) January 16, 2022 Yes.. and the hundred will help english men to win test matches.. — Pinkman (@PinkmanTweets) January 16, 2022 RIP Logic — faisal afzal (@faisalafzal9) January 16, 2022 It's just an excuse ,if you loose accept it and make the necessary ammends. — Rushí (@rushi_1011) January 17, 2022 IPL is affecting England Test team but not affecting other teams like India, Australia & NZ. Well done Gower… — RB (@RitunBose) January 17, 2022 I love David Gower but who was missing? Who was at the IPL that could bat all day and get us past 300 once in 10 innings? No preparation in Australia, Covid, poor selection and Aussie bowlers better than our batters — Dave (@DaveAmitri) January 16, 2022 By pointing fingers at IPL, Gower was running away from the ground reality that their players weren’t good enough to compete in Australia. A majority of the England players who were part of the Ashes squad weren’t even contracted by any IPL franchises. Not just that, even those who were, like Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler, had ruled themselves out of the tournament last year. While Stokes missed the whole tournament, Buttler withdrew from the second-leg which was held in the UAE. Australia win by 146 runs and complete a 4-0 series victory. Scorecard: https://t.co/B4vOZnHWif#Ashes | #AUSvENG pic.twitter.com/uaqdGvm4uJ — England Cricket (@englandcricket) January 16, 2022 Gower or any other English expert can say whatever they want but the truth is that the one and only reason why England lost the Ashes was because of their own deficiencies, the IPL had nothing to do with it. It’s just an excuse to divert the minds of English people. View the full article
