  1. As the ICC World Cup 2019 continues to progress despite the ruthless rains of England taking away half the fun from the quadrennial tournament this year, the Australian cricket team must find solace in the fact that they are currently atop the points table of the Cricket World Cup. The reigning world champions have won all but one of the five matches that they have played during the ongoing round-robin contest and surprisingly be lucky when it comes to no downpours during their time on the field. Their one loss in the initial five games came at the hands of the World Cup favourites, the Indian cricket team, which thanks to a brilliant ton by Shikhar Dhawan, were off to a great start and ended up tallying a massive 352, a total that turned out to be too much for the cricketers from Down Under to keep up with. ð¯ for Shikhar Dhawan! ð What a knock this has been for India! #INDvAUS LIVE ð https://t.co/tdWyb7lIw6 pic.twitter.com/BBVFxYcKH5 — ICC (@ICC) June 9, 2019 The match however was not talked about because of Gabbar's masterful 117-run innings. It rather became the talk of the town because of the audience calling out the former Australian skipper, Steve Smith for what he did one year ago. That's right, the crowd which was extremely hostile towards Team India's southernmost rivals, tried to rile up Smith with the chants of “cheater, cheater”, referring to the infamous sandpaper-gate during a Test series against South Africa in March 2018. Smith, who was captaining the Australian side back then alongside David Warner as his vice-captain, was suspended from international cricket for one whole year as punishment. I would give anything to have this behind me and be back representing my country. But I meant what I said about taking full responsibility as Captain of the team. I won't be challenging the sanctions. They've been imposed by CA to send a strong message and I have accepted them. — Steve Smith (@stevesmith49) April 4, 2018 Caring for his opponent, Kohli, who was on strike when the chants began, decided to reach out to the crowd, stopped them from defaming the talented Australian cricketer and instead asked them to cheer for him. With India fans giving Steve Smith a tough time fielding in the deep, @imVkohli suggested they applaud the Australian instead. Absolute class ð #SpiritOfCricket #ViratKohli pic.twitter.com/mmkLoedxjr — ICC (@ICC) June 9, 2019 “If I was in a position where something had happened with me, and I'd apologised and accepted it, and came back and still I would get booed, I wouldn't like it either,” the Indian skipper said in the post-match press conference. Steve Smith's comments about Virat Kohli's wonderful gesture towards him recently came to the fore when his side defeated Dimuth Karunaratne's Sri Lankan team by a huge 87-run margin on Saturday. During the post-match conference Smith said: “It was a lovely gesture by Virat." "It doesn't really bother me what the crowds do to be perfectly honest. I am just blocking it all out but it was a lovely gesture from him," he added. © Twitter Stepping into the field with one of the most competitive minds in all of sports, Virat Kohli understands where Smith was coming from. What he had done one year ago, he regrets truly. His deeds had brought his country shame and he realises that. Even though the 30-year-old claims that he shuts his mind off to the crowds, not getting bothered by something toxic feels highly unlikely. What is great to see is that Smith seems to be finding his form back. The Oval saw the cricketer score big (73 off 59 balls) alongside skipper Aaron Finch's game-winning 153-run stint on the pitch. It is always great to see a brilliant player make a comeback, especially when he has paid for his sins in full and has an entire nation and a couple of friends backing him up.
  2. If you have strong willpower, dedication and support, then you can even move mountains and Gujarat's 25-year-old Mittal Parmar, who passed her class 12th this year with flying colours, is proof of the same. In 2009, Mittal Parmar had to drop out of class X, due to financial problems. Her family couldn't afford funding her education anymore. "My father is a tailor and he could not afford my education. My mother fell ill for prolonged periods and there was no one in the family to take care of the house," she told The Indian Express. BCCL (For Representation) Ten years later, now at the age of 25, Mittal not only sat for the class 12th exam, but also scored 89.71% and 99.77 percentile. Mittal credits her husband Chetan Barot for inspiring and supporting her to get back to studies. Chetan was Mittal's classmate and they got married in 2016. Mittal, who was always good at studies, skipped class 11 and appeared for class 12 (Commerce) directly in the open category. She took tuitions while doing her household chores. "It is not how much you study, but how well you grasp. I resumed studies after almost a decade. It was bit difficult but then it all went well. This would not have been possible without the support from my husband and family," she added. BCCL (For representation) Mittal now dreams of becoming a CA one day. Sometimes, people fail to achieve their dreams despite having everything. And sometimes, people who have nothing end up making it big in life because they never allowed anything to come in the way of their goal.

  4. The twelfth season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is still on the stage of infancy but let there be no mistake about the level of competition the league exudes every single night. Batsmen are scoring more, bowlers are being more aggressive and fielding has become a part of the teams' defense so vital that the franchises are not backing away from getting involved in some 'unfair practices' to get the upper hand in the 40-over face-offs. According to Delhi Capitals' assistant coach Mohammad Kaif, IPL teams like Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and scoreboard leaders, Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) have been bringing in fitter, more agile fielders to replace poor fielders during the games and that the umpires have failed to spot it out. © Twitter - IPL “It is right that most matches are finishing close to midnight. Teams are bringing in good fielders and replacing them with slow ones. I think the umpires should look at the changes that the teams are making,” Kaif told media ahead of Delhi's game against Kane Williamson's SunRisers Hyderabad. “For example, DC versus KKR match, (Andrew) Russell went out, Rinku singh came to field. Piyush Chawla quickly bowled his four overs and went out and Rinku again came back.” “We have seen that in the last Punjab game as well. Sarfaraz Khan didn't come to field after being hit on the gloves. I don't know if he is injured. Karun Nair came to field and he took a good catch at long on of Ingram,” Kaif explained further. Always taking pride in his fielding talents, Kaif believes that such unfair practices must be stopped with immediate effect as it is against the spirit of the game. “Teams are playing smart and making changes which are not right to me. We will bring it up with the umpires,” added the former Indian cricketer. Slow over rate is another problem that irks the DC coach. Multiple cases have already come to the league officials' notice and the decision-makers have already fined Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Mumbai Indians (MI) skippers Ajinkya Rahane and Rohit Sharma with Rs. 12 lakh each. @rajasthanroyals captain @ajinkyarahane88 was fined Rs 12 lakh as his side maintained a slow over-rate during their narrow loss to the @ChennaiIPL at the Chepauk Stadium here#IPL2019 pic.twitter.com/IT58HFNUtr — IPL 2019 (@IPL20195) April 1, 2019 “Teams defending are taking too much time I think, I don't understand all these planning in the IPL, there is an hour long meeting and also a lot of planning even at the field,” Kaif said.
  5. Just when we thought the whole PUBG addiction fiasco has come to an end, we hear a new story about someone taking their own life. This time, it's an Indian teenager from Hyderabad who has committed suicide, after his mother allegedly scolded him for playing PUBG on his phone during the board exams. The 16-year-old boy named Kallakuri Samsbashiva, who was a class X student, hung himself from the ceiling fan of his room. Apparently, he latched his bedroom from the inside after being scolded by his mother for playing the game for too long instead of studying for his board exam. © PUBG Corp. As soon as the parents and the neighbors knocked down the door and found him hanging, they rushed him to the nearest hospital, where he was declared dead upon arrival. While speaking to Deccan Chronicle, sub-inspector K Sanjeeva Reddy said the boy has been playing the game for months, which led to his addiction. The news about the boy taking his life comes as a surprise, especially when just heard that the ban on the game has been lifted. It's high time that people start taking this more seriously and act responsibly. Or else it's only a matter of time until the game gets banned and people start getting arrested, again.
  6. If you're a sucker for love and belong to the millennial generation, then I suppose you will connect with the newly established Jodi-Nick & Priyanka, or as they're popularly known, 'Nickyanka'. PeeCee is back in action on the big screen soon enough after her two-month long hiatus from the entertainment industry, where she took time away to celebrate her wedding shenanigans along with going for her honeymoon. © Instagram But little did we know the Desi girl and the vilaayati munda actually first spoke to each other on Twitter! Yes, a little piece of information that PeeCee revealed in a short teaser of the Ellen Show, where Priyanka will be appearing in the next episode, talking about her and Nick with Ellen DeGeneres. © Instagram Priyanka is seen talking about how Nick and her met and how he slid into her DMs on Twitter and told her that his friends think it's a good idea for the two of them to meet! Well, if this isn't giving hope to the men who slide into women's DMs to start a conversation, then I really don't know what is! © Twitter “He DMed me actually. So millennial of us! He DMed me on Twitter saying 'I've heard we should connect and uh... I've heard from common friends that we should meet. What do you think about that? I was like, 'just text me" Priyanka tells Ellen. Tomorrow, @PriyankaChopra tells me how her husband @NickJonas slid into her DMs. A post shared by Ellen (@theellenshow) on Jan 29, 2019 at 9:10pm PST I mean it isn't surprising that a man is slipping into a woman's DMs and sending her messages that are flirtatious in nature, but what caught my attention was that even celebrities enjoy doing it, from time to time. After all, slipping into DMs is the new millennial mantra, isn't it? Maybe if Nick had said something offensive to her or showed her lewd pictures of himself, she wouldn't have really entertained him but he actually said something honest and sweet and voila, he had the girl. © Instagram So, basically, what my point is that, now that you've seen the success rate of a DM through a celebrity wedding, maybe up your DM game a bit and don't be rowdy, aggressive or shamefully lewd when you do decide to slide into a girl's DM. Here are three things to keep in mind if you're going to message a girl on a social media platform: (1) No Lewd Content This should go without saying, I suppose. Girls do not like receiving dick pictures. Period. Neither do they want to see your face or any other body part. It's 2019 and you could get into a lot of trouble. So maybe keep it simple? © Getty images (2) Stop With The Pick-Up-Lines Pick-up lines are actually passé. They were perfect in the 90s and a girl in 2019 wouldn't want to entertain them anymore. Maybe a genuine message about your intention with the girl would work perfectly well? Ps: women make fun of guys who use trashy pick-up-lines, with their other women friends. © Getty images (3) No One Cares About A 'Hey' Anymore Just like how Nick put himself out there and made a bold statement about his intentions with Priyanka, maybe you can do the same? Just don't force your intentions or your opinions on her, is all. If you like her and want to take her out on a date, then by all means, make that clear. If you're just stalking her and say a random 'hey' once in a while, you're getting no attention, whatsoever! © Getty images So yes, not every couple can be Nickyanka, but you can find a middle ground and look for your desi girl with some blatant courage and decency. Meanwhile, PeeCee and Nick are still going strong with their family functions in the States and we're hoping to see Priyanka in Shonali Bose's 'The Sky Is Pink', co-starring Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim, rather soon.
  7. It sure is a scary thought, but it's inevitable. Most of our favourite cricketers are going to hang their boots one day and we will watch them go with a heavy heart. Here below we discuss 5 legendary cricketers who could possibly retire after the 2019 ICC World Cup: 1. MS Dhoni © Reuters A lot has been said about the decision to include Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the Indian squad for the World Cup. With Rishabh Pant showing his worth both as a batsman and a wicket-keeper during the Border-Gavaskar Test series in Australia, the idea of Dhoni playing in the biggest tournament this year has been challenged by many. But his performance in the ODI series against the Aussies has cleared all doubts that he's not only still got it but continues to be one of the elite batsmen out there. The batsman has shown interest in playing the 2019 World Cup ever since he gave up his captaincy. "It's been a long cherished dream of Dhoni - since he gave up the captaincy in white ball cricket - to play in the World Cup next year where he would be more as a mentor to the team,” Dhoni's Manager, Arun Pandey told Gulf News in 2018. He's had a wonderful career ever since he became a part of Team India. Probably the most loved captain ever, he is also the most accomplished. The best way to say goodbye to the sport for Dhoni would be to play this World Cup, or better yet, win it. A final token of love for the country, one final medal on his wall. 2. Chris Gayle © Reuters Considered to be on a declining career roller-coaster, this may be Chris Gayle's last big show as an active batsman for the West Indies. 2018 was probably one of the worst years for the big hitter who was absent from the Windies squad for long. Despite that, Windies chief selector, Courtney Browne is certain that Gayle will play a crucial role during the team's World Cup run. A part of his national team for four World Cups, Gayle is known for his big innings and making unbelievable records including a massive 215 double century against Zimbabwe during the 2015 World Cup With injuries keeping the former captain away from the pitch for long, the World Cup would be the perfect opportunity for the fans to witness one last 'Gayle Storm'. 3. Ross Taylor © Reuters Making his ODI debut all the way back in 2006, this Kiwi is still playing like a 20-year-old fresher with strong legs and back to support his game. In what has turned out to be a great 2018 for the former New Zealand captain, Taylor scored 639 runs in just 11 ODIs which included two centuries and four half-centuries. "It's a World Cup year, and I've put a big focus on the tournament and on one-day cricket," Taylor said in a post-match press event after the second one-day international against Sri Lanka on Saturday, 5 January. "There are still a few things I want to work on, but I can hopefully continue the form over the summer." Despite the recent run of success Taylor is enjoying, his inconsistency along with his age are hinting his separation from the game. Under the leadership of Kane Williamson and Taylor, New Zealand are looking like real title contenders. 4. Dale Steyn © Reuters The South African pacer was last seen playing in the 50 over format all the way back in 2016 when they were hosting Australia for a five-game series which the Proteas won with a 5-0 clean sweep. "It's so bloody long ago I can't even remember it," Dale Steyn said in an interview with ICC. "What I do remember is that we won 5-0. And it's a team game. And that's all that matters." Since then, Steyn, who's distanced himself from ODIs, has often shown interest in participating in the 2019 World Cup and has also mentioned how he wants his country to lift the championship a lot more. Finding his fitness once more, the bowler played a big role in the Hampshire County Cricket Club England and Wales' domestic first-class cricket circuit and can capitalise it on it during the World Cup in June. 5. Hashim Amla © Reuters Known for his quiet demeanour and a strong presence on the pitch, South African cricketer and Dale Steyn's former teammate, Hashim Amla as a performer, is deteriorating with every single day. Once a proud opener for the Proteas with a powerful and prestigious career of his glory days behind him, the 36-year-old is currently struggling with his pace in all formats of the game. Although the team has other options should Amla not get his touch back, there is still a lot of time for 'the mighty Hash' to get there. What is probably a bit more worrying is his bad luck dealing with injuries. If this is going to be Amla's big exit from the cricketing world, he will most certainly try his best to perform with how much ever fuel he has left in his tank.
  8. Ever since his appointment as captain, Virat Kohli, owing to his hard work and dedication to cricket, has been an example for his Team India mates. His leadership has allowed Indian cricket to scale new heights, while his artistry with the willow has impressed all. The Indian captain's focus on fitness, too, has inspired his teammates to step up their game in the gym. A brilliant batsman, great leader and a fitting role model for the youth; Kohli has checked all those boxes over the years. But, recently, far away from the cricket field, the Delhi cricketer showed everyone that he is also considerate and a good human being. In a touching gesture for his teammates, Kohli along with his wife Anushka Sharma - who are also celebrating their first wedding anniversary today - happily gave away their cosy business class seats to the Indian seamers during their trip from Adelaide to Perth. Witnessed @imVkohli & his wife give up their Business class seats to allow the Quicks more comfort & space on the trip from Adelaide - Perth !! Danger Australia .. Not only are the quicks more relaxed .. The Skipper is managing his troops with great human touches #AUSvIND — Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) December 11, 2018 Former England cricketer Michael Vaughan, who is also in Australia as a cricket pundit, revealed that both Kohli and Anushka produced the heartfelt gesture for the Indian pace battery to ensure they felt more comfort during their flight to Perth. "Witnessed @imVkohli & his wife give up their Business class seats to allow the Quicks more comfort & space on the trip from Adelaide - Perth !! Danger Australia. Not only are the quicks more relaxed. The Skipper is managing his troops with great human touches #AUSvIND," former England captain tweeted. © Reuters Earlier, during India's memorable 31-run triumph over Australia in Adelaide, Kohli added yet another feather to his cap. For a man who has witnessed a marauding run this year, Kohli couldn't do much with the willow as he managed to score just 3 & 34 across two innings. But, even if his bat couldn't breathe fire, Kohli, with his impeccable leadership skills, still clinched the unique feat of becoming the first-ever Asian captain to win a Test match in at least South Africa, England and Australia. Though there are still three more Tests to go Down Under and Australia, despite the absence of their stalwarts Steve Smith and David Warner, still pose threat to India, the Kohli brigade, for now, can bask in the glory of a brilliant team effort that has allowed them to take a crucial 1-0 lead in what promises to be an exciting series.
  9. A student's life isn't a cakewalk, especially when you are 16 and trying to figure out life amidst exam stress, family pressure, teenage love and passion. While reading comedian Kautuk Srivastava's first book- Red Card, one can't help but relate to the protagonist and everything that surrounds him. It's all real and feels like being hit by a wave of nostalgia from the good, old days. Penguin India Rishabh Bala is a 10th grade student, who finds himself hopelessly in love when the exam pressure is at its peak. And to top that, he is juggling his passion for football along with extensive tutorials. Rishabh is extremely energetic, enthusiastic, distracted and romantic. However, he is not the only one who is going through a similar dilemma. I spoke to 5 students, who like Rishabh, are dealing with puberty, career, parents and an unconditional feeling they call love: 1. Arjun, 15 "My parents want me to pursue science albeit my passion lies in theatre. They don't get it and there is no way I can make them understand. I don't think I am cut out for a 9-to-5 corporate job, but my parents are more worried about a secured future. I wish I could tell them that theatre will pay my bills too, not immediately but eventually." 2. Nikesh, 15 "My girlfriend and I have been dating for quite some time. For the world, it's just another adolescence love that will fade away. Not for me! I think it's the real deal. Although, there is always a fear of long-distance. She wants to study abroad and I have to finish my education in India. Sometimes, I feel insecure but I don't want to stop her from pursuing her dreams. It's a depressing situation, honestly." 3. Nilanjali, 14 "I am hopelessly in love with my best friend's boyfriend. And I think he feels the same for me. I don't want to hurt my friend but I don't want to lose him. Either way, I am going to lose someone precious. I know I have to make my choice. I am afraid I'll land up making the wrong one." 4. Vibgyor, 16 "I am struggling to keep up with my grades and my performance in cricket matches. My parents, teachers and coaches have a lot of faith and expectations from me. But sometimes, it's a little frustrating. I am tired of impressing everyone around me and I wish I could run away from all of it. I think that would be easier than letting people down." 5. Rusha, 16 "My body is changing and I look different. Not in a good way though! When I see other teenage girls, I feel extremely conscious. I have been body-shamed and my confidence has been shattered more than once. I try to remain strong but sometimes I feel people should start talking about puberty openly. And it must start at home." Rishabh is no different from all the teenagers above. But will he be able to keep it together? Can he win a trophy for his beloved school's football team? Will he face his first heartbreak? Give Red Card a read and find out how Rishabh copes with all his woes, one day at a time. Buy the book here.
  10. It's always fascinating to watch models walk down the ramp, thriving in all their confidence, sass, and beauty. This is almost always the case, except when the model in question is someone we already love and admire - then, the experience elevates on to a whole new level, and we can't help but marvel at how that known face, has transformed into something otherworldly and ethereal, under those magical lights. This was exactly what we felt when we saw some of our favourite leading ladies of Bollywood walk the ramp last week, at the Lotus Make-Up India Fashion Week. Take a look: 1. Sushmita Sen © Twitter Sush anyway has that inimitable personality and confidence, that amplifies her beauty manifold. We saw a glimpse of that when she sashayed down the runway looking like a Goddess, almost reminiscent of Mother Nature, clad in green from head to toe. © Twitter 2. Tabu © Twitter Tabu's intense old world charm, intermingled with the grace that she always personifies, was presented on the ramp in a beautiful black and red Saree. © Instagram 3.

  12. We've heard the wise say that life is unpredictable, but what they did not tell us was that this isn't just true about our life's final moments, but can even be applied to the most mind-blowing moments we live to experience in life. © Instagram This is the reason why every philosopher tells us to live in the moment and make the most of it. While we are busy tapping on our phones, clicking selfies or bending our fingers on a laptop at work, there are people who are taking this advice seriously and charging ahead with their hearts set on doing the right thing, by doing what they do best. This is the story about one of India's raging superstars, rapper Divine aka Vivian Fernandes from Mumbai who went from being a backstreet “gully” performer to a world-class rapper with an ardent fan following both in India and abroad. © Instagram His journey from being Vivian to Divine is a testimony that luck shines on those who dare to follow their heart and work hard. His rise to fame is nothing short of magnificent with his videos crossing the million mark within 24-hours of releasing. His songs are tales from the streets of Mumbai and range from satirical, autobiographical confessionals to rage anthem for an entire generation, that can instantly relate to the realities presented through his lyrics that talk about the city, its people and numerous other societal elements such as corruption and poverty. © Instagram Here is a 17-point guide to Divine's rise from being an underground rapper to an international performer. 1. Born Vivian Fernandes, Divine is a resident of JB Nagar in Andheri East. He had an abusive father who abandoned them due to which his mother moved to the Gulf to feed the family. He and his elder brother have been brought up by their grandmother. 2. He is a product of St. John Evangelist High School, Marol and RD National College. During his formative years as an aspiring artist, he used to play 'fillers' during college shows. © Instagram 3. Divine got hooked to the music created by Eminem and 50 Cent when a friend once gave him a CD. Inspired, he would labour over verses for hours after school. 4. His stage name is inspired by the peace he felt during his visits to the church in Marol with his grandmother. The Indian Express once quoted him, “when I began to rap, I called myself DIVINE. No other name came to mind”. 5. He started out as an underground rapper in 2011 and was a part of a hip-hop crew called Mumbai's Finest. © Instagram He became popular with his home-made YouTube video 'Yeh Mera Bombay', shot on the streets of his gully, in 2013. The video broke new grounds and received the best video of the year award from Rolling Stone India in 2014. 6. Mainstream success finally knocked on his door in 2015 when social media blew up following his collab with another Mumbai-based rapper Naezy for a track they composed together called 'Mere Gully Mein'. 7. In 2016, Divine launched his solo single 'Jungli Sher' which is a defiant anthem about growing up a broken family with limited means. The video became an instant hit on social media. © Instagram 8. He collaborated with DJ Nucleya in 'Jungle Raja' on Nucleya's album 'Bass Rani'. The track 'Jungle Raja' won 'Best EDM Track Of The Year' 2015 at the GIMA Awards. 9. Divine caught Sony Music India's attention during the Blue Frog Festival in 2014 and went on to launch his smashing debut single 'Jungli Sher' under Sony. 10.

  14. If you've ever felt that you are too old to pursue a passion that you once cherished, or are too old to chase a dream which you buried alive, then this beautiful story is a life lesson for all of you. 96-year-old Karthyayani Amma from Kerala went back to school and enrolled in 4th standard in order to complete her education and wants to finish 10th grade as well. © The Week It all began in January 2018, when the literacy crew of the 'Cheppad Gram Panchayat' was on a literacy drive for the elderly, and while most people didn't show any interest, Karthyayani came forward happily to participate. She spends time learning tables in Mathematics and also took her first exam recently, which she cleared with good marks. She draws inspiration from her 60-year-old daughter Ammini Amma, who passed the literacy mission's course. Karthyayani now wants to learn English and follow the footsteps of her daughter. © entertales The elderly woman's will and passion have inspired 30 senior citizens to take up the same course and pursue education. Ironically, her father was a tutor but she and her sister gave up their education at the age of 12 owing to their circumstances. This piece of news is not only heartwarming but makes you believe that there still is hope for our nation to grow as a whole, where our elderly are not cruelly left to their fate, but embraced and cherished right until their last days.
