  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.

  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.

  17. For those who feared an early German exit, while also criticising their calibre and questioning their chances, duly got an answer from Joachim Low's side, courtesy of a late Toni Kroos winner, came back to defeat Sweden. This World Cup hasn't been short of new dramas, but this German triumph over Sweden tops all the other moments so far. This win will undoubtedly boost their confidence to qualify for the knockout stages as they play South Korea next. Source: Reuters Joachim Low opted to make some high-profile changes to his squad for the Sweden game. Mesut Ozil and Sami Khedira were dropped from the side, to be replaced by Marco Reus and Sebastian Rudy respectively, while Mats Hummels was reportedly injured before the game, as Antonio Rudiger replaced him. These changes, however, in any way did not bring an upturn in their fortunes, like Sweden, courtesy of an Ola Toivonen strike went ahead on 32-minutes. Sweden then put in an excellent shift in defence, time and again denying the German attackers any real sniff of goal. Sweden finished the half excellently but was pegged back by a Marco Reus strike within three minutes of the second half. Germany now had real hope and time to find another goal, as this was a must-win game for the World Champions. Source: Reuters Sweden, on the other hand, refused to lose hope as they continued to defend well and protect the one point they now wanted from the game. Germany had most of the possession in dominant second half, as they crowded the Swedish penalty area, to find the elusive winner. First Marco Reus, and then Mario Gomez made a hash out of two brilliant chances. Gomez' chance was adjudged offside, but VAR could have had a say if he had managed to finished the opportunity well. At the 82nd-minute mark, in a drastic turn of events, Jerome Boateng was dismissed for a second booking, and Germany's chances now looked slim at best. For fans, at that moment, they could have settled for a draw. Julian Brandt, then hit the post after a sweet shot from outside the box, and at this point, all hopes had diminished, and fans seemingly gave up on a winner. But Toni Kroos had other plans for them. Already in the 5th minute of added time, Germany won a free kick, just outside of the penalty area on the left side. Kroos, instead of taking a direct kick, played a brilliant duel with Rues, who set him up for a good shot on goal. Kroos curled the ball with perfection into the top-right corner and sent Germans fans into a frenzy. Source: Reuters The win means, Germany now have a genuine chance to advance from the group stages and into the Knockout stages. But Group F is turning into a tricky one, and the results of the final group stage games could change everything about this group, including dumping Mexico out of the competition. Now, Germany need to ensure they win their last match against South Korea in a resounding manner, which essentially means keeping a significant goal difference to boost their chances of qualifications. Experts and pundits will already be out with the calculators to determine what Germany will need next, to advance, but German fans will keep all those for another day. For this moment – where a ten-man team snatched victory from the jaws of a certain defeat, the resurgent Germans will surely bask in the glory of their true 'World Champions' spirit.
  18. Yesterday, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) announced the class 12 results and since then the internet has been flooded with congratulatory wishes and memes on Meghna Srivastava, the new equivalent of 'Sharma ji's kid', who scored 99.8% and became the CBSE topper. Twitter Honestly, if the recent CBSE and ICSE results have taught me anything, it is – first, thank god we're not of this bunch of exceptionally brilliant kids who are scoring 95% to 99% like it's no big deal; second, there is no dearth of talented and hardworking students in India, who are the biggest source of inspiration one can ever find. This brings us to the class 12 topper in Delhi from the Science stream, Prince Kumar. It was a matter of joy from Prince and pride for his father, who is a bus driver with the Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC). In fact, by scoring 97% percent in the exams, Prince has also proved the notion wrong about government schools not having a proper education system in place. Twitter Among all the wishes that poured in for Prince, there was one that came from Delhi's Deputy Chief Minister and the state education minister, Manish Sisodia. In fact, Sisodia even tweeted about his exceptional report card. He wrote, “Very proud moment, just congratulated Prince Kumar, topper of Delhi Govt. school, Science stream in Class 12, Son of a DTC bus driver has got 97% with 100/100 in Maths, 99/100 Eco, 98/100 in Chemistry.” Very proud moment, just congratulated Prince Kumar,topper of Delhi Govt school, Science stream in Class 12, Son of a DTC bus driver has got 97% with 100/100 in Maths, 99/100 Eco, 98/100 in Chemistry #DelhiEducationRevolution pic.twitter.com/IeaxhNpX9m — Manish Sisodia (@msisodia) May 26, 2018 Prince, who is still reeling from this surprising result, reportedly said (while in tears) “I am the son of a DTC bus driver. I never expected this…Now I have media people calling me.” He further added, “The kids at these schools may come from a particular socio-economic background. But our teachers and facilities are almost as good as private schools. All teachers are well qualified, and they help us out.” Prince has already cleared his JEE (Mains) and now dreams of pursuing electronics and communications engineering in future. We congratulate Prince Kumar for his exceptional performance and for making us all proud. Also, now that the results are out, it's time to take revenge from all those relatives, who never called us the whole year except for days when your results were announced, and ask their kids “Kitne number aaye?”

  21. Two years ago, the Indian cricket team romped their way to the 2016 ICC Under-19 World Cup final after winning all of their games in the tournament. However, India's dream of clinching their fourth U-19 title was quashed by a rampant West Indies brigade that ran away with the coveted trophy with a five-wicket win in the final. Though India missed out on the opportunity to record the most number of U-19 World Cup wins, the tournament, nonetheless, gave the cricket-crazy nation new heroes and some very exciting talent, poised to serve the national team in near future. India's wait for their fourth U-19 title was eventually fulfilled by the Prithvi Shaw-led brigade that defeated Australia to win the tournament earlier this year. But, it's India U-19 class of 2016 that's making all sorts of noise in Indian cricket these days. The likes of Ishan Kishan, Rishabh Pant, Wasington Sundar and Sarfaraz Khan have proved their mettle and continue to improve their skills in a bid to cement their respective spots in India's senior team. BCCI Their growth over the years, highlighting how far these youngsters have come, was thoroughly visible during the ninth match of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) season when Mumbai Indians (MI) locked horns with Delhi Daredevils (DD). It all began with Ishan Kishan, captain of India's U-19 team in the 2016 World Cup, whose artistry with the willow elated Mumbai fans. Coming out to bat at the No. 3 slot, Ishan clubbed the ball like a pro during his blistering knock of 44 runs that came in double-quick time - just 23 balls. The explosive left-hander, who is also keeping wickets for Mumbai this season, slammed five fours and two sixes while scoring at a strike-rate of over 190. Thanks to his blitzkrieg, Mumbai posted a mammoth total of 194 runs. BCCI But, if Ishan impressed everyone in the first half, his 2016 U-19 World Cup teammate Pant, too, had plans of his own to steal his old skipper's thunder. Chasing 194 runs, Delhi had to begin strongly in hopes of keeping their run-chase in check. But, after a steady 50-run opening partnership, Delhi lost their captain Gautam Gambhir in the sixth over. With Delhi looking to rebuild their innings, Pant walked out in the middle to partner Jason Roy. After beginning his innings with caution, Pant broke the shackles with his wide array of strokes, taking Mumbai bowlers to the cleaners. The left-hander smashed a brilliant 25-ball 47 including six fours and two sixes. BCCI Keeping Delhi in the hunt, Pant also stitched a pivotal partnership of 69 runs with Roy for the second wicket. He was finally dismissed in the 12th over after Kieron Pollard's brilliance in the field. Despite his dismissal, Delhi clinched their first win of the season - courtesy Roy's unbeaten 91. While Ishan's brilliant knock went in vain as Pant had the last laugh with his explosive innings, the ultimate winner in this duel was undoubtedly the India U-19 class of 2016. These guys will improve further, but watching them go from strength to strength with every game makes us believe that the future of Indian cricket is in safe hands. Some Explosive Hitting By Rishabh Pant. Especially The Way He's Rotating Strike Just After Hitting The Ball For Boundary Shows The Quality He Possess.

  22. Jose Mourinho launched an astonishing verbal tirade against his Manchester United players after they reached the FA Cup semi-finals MANCHESTER: Jose Mourinho launched an astonishing verbal tirade against his Manchester United players after they reached the FA Cup semi-finals, accusing them of "a lack of personality, lack of class and lack of desire." Just 24 hours after the United manager had made a memorable defence of his own record in the pre-match press conference, Mourinho turned his attention to his players after a comfortable 2-0 quarter-final victory over Brighton. Only Nemanja Matic, who set up the opening goal for Romelu Lukaku before scoring a late second himself, and youngster Scott McTominay were spared massive criticism. And after Mourinho claimed he was looking for a response to the midweek Champions League exit to Sevilla, the Portuguese veteran even claimed some of his players lacked the personality and desire to play for the famous Premier League club. "I didn´t like the game," said Mourinho. "I think we deserved to win but I didn´t have the reaction from all of them. "I had the reaction from some of them. Some of them were mentally strong enough with the football quality to play -- that was the reason we won. "But a team of 11, when you have a minimum of six or seven players performing and wanting to play, who want the responsibility to have the ball, who have the desire really to play -- it is difficult to have a good performance "So I am not happy with the performance all all. But I am happy with the result." England full-back Luke Shaw was the one player named by Mourinho as having failed to follow his game plan and was, accordingly, substituted at half-time. That made Shaw an obvious target for Mourinho to be questioned about although the United manager clearly had other players in mind when issuing his widespread critique. "I wanted more personality in the team because many, many times I felt that Matic was an island of personality, desire and control surrounded by lack of personality, lack of class and lack of desire. "I have to say that for example McTominay lost more passes today in all the matches he played put together but he was a Manchester United player. "And for me a Manchester United player is one who when he plays badly still gives to the team. That is a question of personality, that is a Manchester United player for me. And that is what some of the others did not have." Mourinho had hinted before the game that many of his stars are currently under-performing and, tellingly, Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez were both left out of his starting line-up. But the United manager´s response to what was, after all, a comfortable victory was an astonishing psychological tactic that may, ultimately, backfire -- a point that Mourinho accepted when asked why he had made such a calculated outburst. ´Scared to play´ "My calculation is that without pressure, they don´t perform well. What can I lose?" he said. "And the ones that are always there are the ones that will always be there. And that is an example of personality. "You have the kid that didn´t play well at all (McTominay). I told him already, he was the first one I spoke to individually in the dressing room. "And instead of being critical with him, I was positive with him because ´You played very bad but you did the basic things that one player has to do.´ "The basic things is to keep the emotional balance to play with that red shirt, which is a heavy shirt to wear. And the kid, in his worst performance by far, he was there and he had body to wear that shirt. "He was not afraid to play. He played bad, and every player can play bad. "But to feel not comfortable to play - ´Please Mister, take me from the pitch.´ I felt that." Mourinho, whose only hope of a trophy this season is the FA Cup, warmed to his theme. He said that some of his big name stars are simply scared of the job in hand at Old Trafford. "A few of the guys, I saw them scared to play. You know when the sun is shining -- and in football the sun is shining when everything goes well, you win matches, you score goals, everything goes in your direction -- every player is a good player and every player wants to play and every player wants the ball and every player is confident to play and every player looks amazing. "When it is dark and cold, and that in football means a period of bad results or a bad result like what happened to us a couple of days ago, not everybody has the confidence and the personality to play really."
  23. At least one California high school student was injured superficially when a teacher accidentally discharged a gun in class during a firearms safety course, police said on Wednesday. Photo; file LOS ANGELES: At least one California high school student was injured superficially when a teacher accidentally discharged a gun in class during a firearms safety course, police said on Wednesday. The incident, which occurred Tuesday, came as a police officer assigned to a school in the state of Virginia accidentally fired his service weapon inside his office and was placed on administrative leave. The massacre of 17 students and staff in Parkland, Florida, last month has ignited a nationwide debate over whether some teachers should be armed, with President Donald Trump and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos in favour. Dennis Alexander, a teacher at Seaside High School in California´s Monterey County and a reserve police officer, fired a semiautomatic handgun as it was pointed at the ceiling, police chief Abdul Pridgen said in a statement. Pridgen said no one was hit by gunfire or seriously hurt and police registered one injury in the incident, although local media reported that three teenagers were struck by falling masonry. "One student had an abrasion on his neck, a red mark. When the bullet stroked the ceiling some debris came down. We didn´t confirm two others," Seaside police commander Judy Veloz told AFP. "There was no panic in the school. The teacher has been put on administrative leave. We´re still investigating, interviewing students. The school is open as usual." Fermin Gonzales, the father of the 17-year-old boy to whom police were referring, told NBC affiliate KSBW Alexander had informed the class he was going to demonstrate how to disarm someone and was checking if the weapon was loaded. "It´s the craziest thing," said Gonzales, who added that bruising to his son's neck appeared to have been caused by a bullet fragment. A spokeswoman for the Monterey Peninsula Unified School District said in a statement education officials and police began interviewing students immediately after the alarm was raised. "It was determined that there was no immediate threat to students or staff, and school remained in session," she said. She added that the district allows only authorised law enforcement or security personnel to possess weapons on school property or transport. Students would be offered counselling, she said. Alexander, who also teaches math, has been placed on leave both as a teacher and in his position as a reserve officer for the Sand City Police Department. He could not immediately be reached for comment. The Alexandria Police Department in Virginia meanwhile said it was investigating after an officer accidentally discharging his weapon at George Washington Middle School on Tuesday morning. "At approximately 9:10 am, a School Resource Officer accidentally discharged his service weapon inside his office at the middle school," the police said in a statement. "He immediately checked for potential injuries in the area. No one was injured. The officer then contacted his supervisor and school staff. All students and staff are safe and classes continued as normal." The officer was placed on administrative leave pending the probe. Students across the United States walked out of classes on Wednesday in a nationwide call for action against gun violence, many gathering outside the White House and chanting "Never again!" and "Enough is enough!" Concealed carry at colleges and schools has been banned since 2015 in California and police are understood to be establishing whether Alexander violated any regulations by bringing a gun onto campus. "I think a lot of questions on parents´ minds are, why a teacher would be pointing a loaded firearm at the ceiling in front of students," Superintendent PK Diffenbaugh told CNN affiliate KSBW. "Clearly in this incident protocols were not followed."
  24. In a very short time, 7 years in Bollywood, Rajkummar has created a niche for himself. A method actor who has officially studied method acting (at Film and Television Institute of India), Rajkummar Rao has worked his way in the industry with the quiet brilliance of an underdog. He is no Greek god, he has no godfathers in the industry, he is as middle class as the characters he plays; but he has one thing that's most required but least emphasised – a knack for mastering the characters he plays. He can be as convincing as the middle class immigrant desperate to find a livelihood in a new city (in 'City Lights') as he can be as the young journalist Deepu Sebastian troubled by the tragic case of Prof Siras (in 'Aligarh'). © Instagram/Rajkummar Rao Rajkummar Rao, who was born as Rajkummar Yadav in Gurgaon, Haryana, doesn't try to overpower the role. He is the perfect catalyst to a well-written part. Rao has a grounded understanding of the roles he plays, an understanding that is free of the vanity and narcissism that often come naturally to an actor in the industry. He doesn't try to overshadow everything else in the frame – he can merge in the background seamlessly enough but not without delivering the weight of reality to the frame. Rao knew from a young age acting was his calling, and he was prepared for the struggle that would come his way. That's probably one of the reasons why he never shied away from stretching his limits for a role. While he starved himself to lose weight for his first film 'Love, *** and Dhokha', he had no qualms doing it again for 'Trapped' where he nearly stopped eating. © Relaince Entertainment Only 7 years in the industry and he has already been through more than a handful of transformations for roles. To play Netaji Subash Chandra Bose in 'Bose', he gained an excess of 10-12 kilos, which he had to shed for a leaner look in 'Fanney Khan' for which he put himself on a diet of one bowl of dal in a day for 2 weeks. When you are living your dream, food is but a mere distraction. He is the industry outsider who has done the ritualistic struggler life in Mumbai – hustling for the big break, running out of money to eat in trying to stay afloat in tinsel town. © Instagram/Rajkummar Rao Rajkummar Rao doesn't crave stardom, he craves excellence. He works more on each role than on his image as an actor. Perhaps that is why he worked in the industry without a PR or a management firm to handle his engagements so far. This is also one reason why he has chosen roles for their merit rather than their star value. "It will happen when it happens. Of course, I wouldn't mind my films to become blockbusters. But I'm not really aiming for that. I can't work thinking that, 'let this film be a blockbuster'. And how can I make this film into one,” he said. © Instagram/Rajkummar Rao An intelligent choice of roles has worked a long way in keeping his talent relevant. A choice that was born out of a conviction for the work he was doing – Rao was clear from the beginning that he wouldn't compromise on the quality of work he'd do. Even when he took on roles in mainstream entertainment movies, like that of the shallow boyfriend in 'Queen' or Vidrohi in 'Bareily Ki Barfi', it were roles that had meat enough to deliver a nuanced performance. © Junglee Pictures 'Newton', the film Rajkummar Rao carried solely on his shoulders, besides the brilliant sketch by Amit V. Masurkar, was selected as India's official entry to the Oscars. Though it did not win an Academy Award, it sent out a clear message that Rajkummar Rao had arrived. Rao has established his name with the likes of Irrfan Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the industry, a feat that's even more commendable at his age. The characters he has played have been diverse, just like a cross-section of the urban Indian population. He has been the government official desperately trying to do his job (Newton), he has been the small town simpleton easily bullied by the more street smart local boys and in the same movie he has played the over-smart opportunist who beats the hero at his own game. Every character finds a real and tangible reflection in reality. There's something for everyone. It's easy to relate to him, but it is also easy to dissociate with him when the character is too dark for our middle class sensibilities, just like we detach ourselves from the petty criminal killed in an encounter we read about in the newspaper. © Swiss Entertainment The trailer of Rajkummar Rao-starrer 'Omerta' has done well to tell us this could be another masterpiece by the actor. Rao said the role was easily the most difficult roles of his career. Considering he has aced roles like that of the lawyer-activist Shahid or the uptight government official in 'Newton', audiences will expect nothing less than brilliant from him. And once again, he will not disappoint.

Anushka and Varun have stepped into a new avatar, transporting us back to a different era for their new movie 'Sui Dhaaga'. This is the first time the two have collaborated together. One look at the stills and you can't help but feel delighted at the refreshing look. It's been a while since we have seen something like this in Bollywood. The actors shared the first look of the film and we are totally loving it. You see the pair smiling, blushing and feeling a bit shy, all in one still. Varun can be seen donning a moustache reminding us of actors from the 80's and Anushka is seen wearing her shinning smile with a plain looking salwaar kameez. ममता à¤à¤° मà¥à¤à¥ ठरहॠहॠ२८ सितमà¥à¤¬à¤° à¤à¥ | #SuiDhaagaFirstLook #SuiDhaaga @yrf @suidhaagafilm @varundvn A post shared by AnushkaSharma1588 (@anushkasharma) on Feb 12, 2018 at 9:38am PST Varun and Anushka are all set to play Mauji and Mamta in 'Sui Dhaaga', which is being made under the Yash Raj Banner.

They are like any other small town couple that most of the middle class Indians can easily relate to.
