ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsVirat Kohli & Co. might be busy with the 5-match ODI series against West Indies, but in the back of their minds, the team is also low-key planning for the ICC World Cup that will take place in England in 2019. In case you're wondering if they are finalising their game plan or working on their fitness, you're wrong. While this might happen eventually, but currently the team is busy preparing their odd wish list for the tour which includes lots and lots of bananas. Confused? via GIPHY Reportedly, Team India's wish list for the tour is out and it includes bananas, a reserved rail coach and permission to have their wives accompany team to the tour. These were the requests that were put forward by the team, in their review meeting with the Committee of Administrators (CoA) in Hyderabad. Just like us, the request of bananas confused the CoA as well. According to a report in The Indian Express, sources said, "Apparently, the England cricket board failed to serve the Indian team with the fruit of their choice during the tour. But the CoA was amused by the request and said that the players should have told the team manager to buy bananas on the BCCI's expenses." Twitter/ BCCI Another demand that raised eyebrows in the review meeting was the preference for train travel in England. The team wants a coach to be booked for them and although the committee was initially concerned about their safety, they "agreed under the condition that the CoA or BCCI won't be held responsible if anything untoward happens." Sources further said, "There were other demands about booking hotels with a proper gym and discussions about the duration and protocol regarding wives accompanying players on tours." Team India is currently busy smashing massive runs against West Indies and giving their opponents a tough time on the ground. For those who missed out on yesterday's match, Team India won by 224 runs in the 4th ODI that was played at Mumbai's Brabourne Stadium on Monday.
Wrestling Coach Pulls Off Iconic WWE Move After His Pupil's Gold-Medal Finish At Youth Olympics
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsGrowing up as a kid, most of us were arguably glued to our television sets to watch the episodes of World Wrestling Federation (WWF). Irrespective of our tuition classes or preliminary exams, we somehow managed to find time to catch a glimpse of our favourite wrestlers in action. Today, WWF might have become World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), but many of us still keep pulling off the signature moves of the prominent wrestlers in our bedrooms (well, I still do). Such was the entertainment on offer, that it was just too hard to resist. And, the fact that we still share the WWE stories with our friends over drinks, shows the kind of effect it had on us. At the ongoing Summer Youth Olympics, something similar came to the fore. Moldovan wrestler Alexandrin Gutu had his eyes set on the gold when he locked horns with Russia's Stepan Starodubtsev in the men's Greco-Roman 71kg category final. After toiling hard for a while, Gutu eventually secured the gold medal through 'Victory by Fall'. That's a celebration! ð¯ #Wrestling Congratulations to Alexandrin Gutu from #Moldova ð²ð© #goldmedal Men's Greco-Roman 71kg @wrestling Tune in now for the live competition from @BuenosAires2018! ðº https://t.co/wlr9pbj0zB pic.twitter.com/UBBdurOYaO — Olympics (@Olympics) October 13, 2018 Overwhelmed by emotions, the Moldovan wrestler raised his arms as he basked in the glory. Soon, Gutu saw his wrestling coach on the sidelines and there was no surprise to see him running straight into his arms. But, Gutu and the fans in the arena were in for a big surprise. I'd hate to see what happens when he loses......LOL. — Common Sense (@RealWorld2018) October 13, 2018 While Gutu expected a hug, the wrestling coach wrapped his arms around his ward before pulling off a WWE-like body slam. Gutu's coach was then seen giving a high-five and planting a kiss on the cheeks of his pupil. The act seemed like a premeditated move as part of their unique celebration. Love it ðªð¼ðð¼ — ð®ð³ Soumya Sarkar ð®ð³ (@SarkarSpeaking) October 13, 2018 And, though Gutu made his country proud by winning a gold medal, it was his coach who took the social media by storm with his brilliant 'body slam' celebration.
Virat Kohli Honours Ravi Shastri By Gifting His 'MoM' Champagne Bottle To The Indian Coach
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsScoring 200 individual runs (both innings combined), securing a win for his side and scripting a resounding comeback in the Test series; Virat Kohli couldn't have done any better for the Indian cricket team than what he did at Trent Bridge. From marshalling his troops on the field to leading India's batting charge with the willow, Kohli's vital contribution in the third Test didn't just keep his team alive in the five-match series, but also set the premise for an exciting contest in the remaining two Tests. Burying the skeletons of their Lord's debacle, India's emphatic 203-run win showed their character and proved why they are ranked No. 1 in the longest format. And, there was no surprise to see skipper Kohli being named the 'Man of the Match' for his noticeable contribution in the match. © Reuters For a man who was battling his own demons of the infamous 2014 tour, Kohli has undoubtedly made the naysayers eat their words through a series of convincing performances in the three games so far. With 440 runs to his name, Kohli is currently leading the charts as the top run-scorer in the ongoing Test series. And, the fact that he is 234 runs ahead from Jonny Bairstow (who's ranked second on that list), goes on to show how consistent Kohli has been in the English conditions where other batsmen (from both the sides) have failed to score. ðð Player of the Match goes to #TeamIndia Skipper @imVkohli.#ENGvIND pic.twitter.com/4MTJj87MmY — BCCI (@BCCI) August 22, 2018 If his artistry with the willow garnered praise from the cricket fraternity, Kohli's touching tribute to his coach Ravi Shastri saw him winning hearts of the Indian fans. After receiving a bottle of champagne and the 'Man of the Match' medal, Kohli wasted no time in showing his gratitude to Shastri. He gave his bottle of champagne to Shastri as a gift, while thanking him for standing by his side through thick and thin. "This Test win was clinical" - #TeamIndia Head Coach @RaviShastriOfc applauds the team's performance after an emphatic win at Trent Bridge #ENGvIND pic.twitter.com/N5DWo7ZPvz — BCCI (@BCCI) August 22, 2018 During the post-match press conference, Shastri was vocal about India's intent on being the best travelling team in the world. “Clear your heads and show me some accountability,” was his advice to the team before the third Test. “Very little practice, mental rest,” was the message immediately after the Lord's debacle. “Get ugly, look dirty, show grit and determination,” was his call to batsmen. Coming back from the dead, Kohli-led India would've surely cherished their win at Trent Bridge, but the team still has a long way to go when it comes to turning the tables on England in the remaining two matches and eventually winning the five-match Test series. The Indian team will be eager to build on the momentum when they lock horns with the hosts in the fourth Test, slated to begin from 30th August at the Rose Bowl Cricket ground in Southampton.
