ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsIt has been a while since the Board for Control of Cricket in India had declared the list of final 15 cricketers who will be representing the country in the 2019 ICC World Cup and while the level of talent and skills the roster boasts, a good portion of the fans of Indian cricket are questioning the Board's decision to not pick the 21-year-old Rishabh Pant, former Australian captain, two-time World Cup winner and Delhi Capitals Head Coach, Ricky Ponting being one of them. "I was surprised when he was left out of the squad. I thought he'll be in and I thought he'll actually play in the starting eleven. I thought that someone like him batting at No. 4 or 5 in their side would have just been that sort of player who could have had that X-factor about him that could have been the difference between India and some other teams in the World Cup,” said Ponting, according to an International Cricket Council (ICC) report. Pant â Karthik â India have named their @cricketworldcup squad â¬ï¸https://t.co/7fOjI2he3X pic.twitter.com/q8WnsVCa42 — ICC (@ICC) April 15, 2019 Ponting, who has been one of Pant's hardcore fan ever since his brilliant innings in the Test series against Tim Paine's Australian team in January 2019, has become more of a mentor to the Roorkee-born as integral parts of the Indian Premier League franchise, Delhi Capitals. "He is sort of like another Adam Gilchrist" – Ricky Ponting on Rishabh Pant after the India wicket-keeper batsman hit an entertaining ð¯ at the SCG. READ ðhttps://t.co/fofFrxgqLi pic.twitter.com/7CsO9ITloR — ICC (@ICC) January 5, 2019 Having spent more than a month together now, the Aussie was in Pant's corner when the Indian squad for the World Cup was announced and got to see him take in the rejection up close. According to him, Pant naturally felt a bit dispirited and depressed upon learning his exclusion but was quick to get back on his feet. "The thing that he has to remember, and we all have to remember, [is that] he's still very, very young. He's got an opportunity to play, potentially, in another three or four World Cups during the course of his career," Ponting said. "One thing that we know about Indian cricket is that there is a lot of depth around, particularly around the batting side. Unfortunately, this time, Rishabh is the one that has missed out, but as I said, I think knowing what he's like and the talent he's got, I'll be surprised if he doesn't play at least three World Cups before his career is over." While the World Cup teams have the right to make amendments to their respective teams until 23rd May 2019, the Australian truly believes that Pant's chances of being called this year, are negligible. Instead, he wants the Indian wicket-keeper batsman to focus all his energy towards helping Delhi Capitals do better in the ongoing IPL and try a win them their maiden title. This. Is. New. Delhi. â¤ Coach Ricky Ponting out there giving us all the #MotivationalFeels with his speech after the #MIvDC game ðð¥ The boys are ready for #DCvCSK at #QilaKotla! #ThisIsNewDelhi #DelhiCapitals #CoachSpeaks pic.twitter.com/hLzTuQI7X2 — Delhi Capitals (@DelhiCapitals) March 26, 2019 "What he can only focus on now is win games for the Delhi Capitals. I think there's enough motivation there for him with that, he's talked a lot about wanting to be a successful part of a successful Delhi team. We've got that opportunity now over the next month."
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsWhen it comes to dating, life becomes really hard for a man. All thanks to the f****d up *** ratio of our country. Getting matches on a dating app isn't easy if you don't have the looks of Ryan Gosling and humour of Chandler Bing. On apps like Tinder, where girls get 30 matches in one day, guys get one measly match in 30 days. via GIPHY If you too are swiping right and right and still not able to find a match, worry no more. Other dating apps have come in picture and some of them are as good as Tinder, if not more. via GIPHY Here are 5 such apps which you can join to improve your odds of getting more dates: 1. Bumble Bumble has been in India for a while but officially it was launched recently by Priyanka Chopra. This is the app which has better UI than Tinder and somehow, pictures on it look even better. Bumble works on the same principle as Tinder: swipe and match. However, here you can enter more than just your bio and pictures. via GIPHY Bumble lets you enter your height, your drinking and smoking habits, whether you have pets, whether you have/want kids, what are you here for (something casual/relationship/marriage), your zodiac sign, and even your political leaning. All these things apart from your bio. In addition, it lets you answer questions like two truths and a lie, recent act of kindness, and many more. And if you are bad at breaking the ice, worry not. Here girls have to make the first move. Guys can't text first. It definitely is a great alternative for Tinder. 2. Hinge This one broke the swiping barrier and launched a whole new concept - anyone can message anyone. And if you're bad at even messaging, then you can just like the other person's picture and they will get a notification. via GIPHY Hinge has found a decentish way to check the authenticity of the profile. On Hinge, you can't get away by just uploading one or two pictures. You will have to upload six pictures, no more and no less. Like Bumble, Hinge also gives you an option to put three questions in your profile. Putting questions and answers make it easy for the other person to break the ice. 3. Truly Madly It doesn't have a very pretty UI, but it does the trick. This one is again for people who are not a big fan of bios. Truly Madly gave no space to bios but put the latest fad, hashtags, to describe yourself. You can use up to five hashtags to define yourself, or your hobbies, or what are you looking for. via GIPHY The chat room of this app has some bugs in the latest version where if you type a long message, sometimes only half of it gets delivered. So this is a perfect app for the people who use “chatroom here sucks, let's move to Instagram” line. This app is also good when it comes to privacy, as your name won't be displayed to anyone until you get matched with the person. And, for an ice-breaker after getting a match, Truly Madly has games where you answer certain questions and can check what the other person answered to see how compatible you are. This app also gives you an option to mention your favourite music, movies, books, food, and games. Again, becomes a good ice-breaker. 4. Happen If you're lazy and love your bed too much, this isn't the app for you. Happen shows you people only in the area where you are or where you have been. If you cross a person and you both have Happen installed, it will show your profile in each other's phone. via GIPHY Happen comes quite handy if you're too shy to pick girls in a pub. When you see a girl in a club you like, you can just take out your phone, if she is on Happen then it will show her profile. If you both press like, then bam, it's a match made on Happen! You can go to her and talk or if being an introvert is your thing, then just chat over the app until you're comfortable enough to buy her drinks. 5. Aisle If you are looking for something casual, then this isn't the app for you. As the name suggests, it is made for the prospect of finding a long-term partner. Also, the app isn't free and after a short trial, you need to shed some good money in order to like profiles. If you have decided to join it, make sure you have plenty of time when you sit to make a profile. via GIPHY You will have to answer quite a few questions, actually, 5-page long questionnaire. And it gets checked and verified by their team. Only after the verification, you can join the app. But all this seems worth it when you don't see fake profiles on the app. Because of such lengthy joining process and the joining fee, only people who are genuinely looking for something serious make their profile here. I hope you made it till here without downloading all or a few of the mentioned apps. Desperation has no place in the dating world!
