  1. Shahid Afridi shares how he got the better of Ashwin by getting him to bowl the exact delivery he wanted
  2. We are satisfied with their [players] explanation. The inquiry is now closed, a top police official said
  3. Former Indian skipper and batsman Rahul Dravid has always been considered to be one of the most humble, calm and thoughtful people to have played for the Indian cricket team. He spoke very little, tried to be good friends and teammates with everyone and let his bat do the talking for him on the field. That is probably why even the biggest names from Indian cricket, like current BCCI president Sourav Ganguly and âgod of cricketâ Sachin Tendulkar respected his opinion and listened to him. © Reuters During an interview with Sportskeeda on Facebook, Team Indiaâs ex-manager Lalchand Rajput shared one such incident during which the two legends of the game agreed with Dravid, who wanted them to let the younger players play in the first-ever T20 World Cup in 2007. âYes, it is true,ââRajput said. âRahul Dravid was the captain in England and some players came directly from England to Johannesburg (for the tournament) so they said âletâs give an opportunity to the youngstersâ. But after winning the World Cup they must have repented it when we won the World Cup." It was one of Sachin Tendulkarâs greatest wishes to win a world cup for the country during his magnificent career. He had been a part of the team for over a decade by then and still looking for that glory. © Reuters When the T20 World Cup took place, nobody expected India to win. Also, not a lot of players took the 20-over format of the game that seriously back then. So, when Dravid approached the senior players, they were fine with letting this one go. âUltimately, he (Sachin) won in 2011, but he was dying to win that World Cup, and this team won on the first attempt,â Rajput said. âI was a cricket manager of the 2007 T20 World Cup team. It was a big challenge, because it was a young team. There were a few experienced players, but the real seniors did not play with this team. It was a real opportunity for me as I was the coach for the first time, MS Dhoni was the captain for the first time. So, we really gelled well,â Rajput said. © Twitter /One For All âOur theme during the World Cup was âtension lene ka nahi, dene ka and Dhoni really believed in the motto that people will talk things, but we need to focus on our strengths, and donât have to worry about what others are saying. âThis was the first time T20I World Cup was played, and we had a lot of hungry, young fellows, who were looking to make a name for themselves, and get a permanent place for themselves in the Indian Team. It was a good platform. © Twitter /One For All âThere were certain senior players who were looking to make a comeback and cement their place in the team. It was a good mixture of senior and junior players. The T20I tournament is for young legs, you got to run around, and energetic, and super fit, and this made the difference in the team.â View the full article
  4. Mahendra Singh Dhoni is truly an exceptional athlete. Even at the age of 38, he continues to be amongst the fastest runners the Indian national cricket team has ever seen. However, after the unfortunate ending to the ICC World Cup 2019, in which he failed to close the New Zealand semi-final in the typical âMahiâ fashion, many believed that the days of the former cricketer hitting massive sixes on command are behind him and that younger cricketers should be brought in instead. The analogy could not get a definitive conclusion as ever since the World Cup debacle, the former Indian captain chose to not play for the Men in Blue in any international matches. Breaking "MS Dhoni extends his break till November, remains unavailable for Bangladesh T20Is" - Report pic.twitter.com/8D1RbsQlVD â DHONIsmâ¢ ï¸ (@DHONIism) September 22, 2019 Recently, an image of Dhoni sporting a white beard and roughed up hair appeared online and it was speculated that the wicket-keeper batsman had given up on playing the game on the biggest stage of them all (although, it sure feels like a bit of a stretch, considering the lockdown and how nobody wants to shave their beard). Dhoniâs mother, however, commented on his new look while talking to bdcrictime. "Yes, I have seen his new look but he's not that old,â she said. âNo child is ever old for any mother." Talking about the cricketerâs chances of getting picked in the Playing XI for the upcoming T20 World Cup in October, she said: "I am not sure about his playing the T20 World Cup. Let the Coronavirus be over first. He knows it best when to take a call." © Twitter - @HAIDARMSDIAN07 With sports being suspended indefinitely due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, cricket too has taken an impact. In the absence of the game, many experts have shared their opinions about the probability of the 2011 World Cup-winning skipper rejoining the team for the impending tournament. Former Indian chief selector Krishnamachari Srikkanth, for instance, told Star Sports: âI am not going to be diplomatic. I am talking about if I was the chairman of the selection committee, what would I do. If the IPL does not happen then his chances are very, very bleak,â. View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@chennaiipl) On the other hand, Dhoniâs physiotherapist with the Chennai Super Kings, Tommy Simsek believed that the way in which he was working behind the stumps and with the bat, Dhoni was âdeterminedâ to play the shorter format World Cup later this year. âFirst time I saw him keep wickets in 10 years. That shows how determined he was to play in the T20 World Cup,â Simsek said in the Star Sports show Cricket Connected. With the entire world in isolation, everything has come to a sudden halt, everything but Dhoniâs age. The Indian Premier League was being considered an audition round for the former skipper to rejoin the team but now that even that has been suspended, the chances of watching Dhoni don the blue Number 7 jersey seems to be getting even slimmer.

  5. During our cover interview with 83 director, Kabir Khan, we learnt that he was never a big fan of cricket. So, when he said how Kapil Dev and the rest of the 1983 World Cup-winning Indian team were just a âbunch of boysâ, my first thought was to tweet to him demanding an explanation (yes, thatâs how my sports-loving brain works sometimes). But then, I actually listened to what the guy had to say and did some research on my own, and it began to make more and more sense. Talking about why he decided to do a film on Indiaâs 1983 victory, Kabir said âHonestly Iâm not a big cricket fan. It surprises people, but Iâm not. I realised that Iâm the best person to make 83 because I will never get swayed by the cricket. No sports films are watched for the sport, itâs more about the human story. I was just blown away by the material of that story,â he confessed. On the squad and how he went on to develop a unique bond with them in the process of making the film, he added: âIt is such a classic underdog story. It is such a beautiful story of a bunch of boys⦠Most of them were in their twenties and nobody gave them any hope in hell.â Before the squad flew for England to partake in the Prudential World Cup, they had a horrible losing record. They had lost 28 of the 40 ODIs back then and five captains came and went away in a hurry before Dev was positioned at the helm. © Twitter - Cricket World Cup Krishnamachari Srikkanth, who was a vital part of the team back then even confessed of playing in the tournament without any expectations. âWhen we left the shores of India in 1983 we never expected to be world champions. In fact, my flight was from Bombay to New York with just a stopover in London for the ICC Menâs Cricket World Cup,â Srikkanth had told the ICC media. âThat was because in the first two World Cups the only team we had beaten was East Africa, we even lost to Sri Lanka who were not yet a Test team.â A few days before the World Cup began, Devâs âboysâ even lost to a glued-up team of farmers, engineers and salesmen, which was assembled on short notice and were named Minor Counties Select XI, captained by Frank Collyer. The day after the humiliating loss, umpire Terry Wilkins even said: âYou could walk into any betting shop and place a bet on India to win the world cup at 500-1. I never had a penny on it.â Nobody expected them to win. © Twitter - @Ahmed_Shakeel Kabir revisits the time he took to research for the film and said: âWhen they [Team India] landed in London, they were humiliated, they were disrespected.â The roster which mostly consisted of vegetarians found roasted chicken and shepherdâs pie in lunch during their practice match against New Zealand. âHow they pulled each other up and went on to win this glory for India, thatâs why I wanted to direct this film,â Kabir said. As a fan of the game and a sucker for underdog stories, I expect Kabir Khanâs upcoming Ranveer Singh-starrer biopic 83 to show how they fought with their backs against the wall, how they went on to beat the seemingly undefeatable West Indies team in the final, and how a âbunch of boysâ became men of glory. Based on his exceptional job with Roar of The Lion, a Hotstar docu-series he has directed around the cricketing like of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, I am certainly looking forward to the upcoming film.

  7. In what initially began as a cause of concern for China, the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) has now become a major threat to mankind. As of today, a staggering 1,98,965 confirmed cases of COVID-19 have emerged alongside the ever-increasing casualties which have now risen to 7,991 across the globe. Ever since China reported its first confirmed case of COVID-19, which originated in Wuhan, last December, the fast-spreading virus has clawed its way across the country. On 12th February, the infamous Hubei province sent ripples across the globe after reporting 14,840 new confirmed cases of Coronavirus in a single day. To sum up the state of affairs, China currently has 80,894 confirmed COVID-19 cases and 3,237 deaths. While China continues to battle the deadly virus to contain its spread, Italy is the second nation in the list of worst-hit countries for Coronavirus. With a total of 31,506 confirmed COVID-19 cases and 2,503 deaths, Italy is currently under a complete lockdown as the ruling government continues to struggle in a bid to restore normalcy in the country. Second player tested positive for COVID-19https://t.co/y1c3b62lCE pic.twitter.com/gr6rNQrZfB â JuventusFC (@juventusfcen) March 17, 2020 Despite the Italian government's preventive measures to control the pandemic spread, the Coronavirus cases and deaths continue to rise sharply, marking the highest number of cases and deaths outside China. In yet another case, involving a star footballer, Blaise Matuidi has tested positive for the novel COVID-19. "Blaise Matuidi has undergone medical tests that have revealed his positivity to the Coronavirus-COVID-19. The player, as of Wednesday, March 11, has been in home isolation. He will continue to be monitored and will follow the same regime. He is well and is asymptomatic," Juventus, the Turin-based football club, said in an official statement. Matuidi, the 2018 World Cup winner with France, has now become the second Juventus player to test positive for Coronavirus. Last week, Juventus defender Daniele Rugani had tested positive for the deadly virus, sending the entire squad into quarantine. On Tuesday, Spain's club Valencia CF confirmed that 35 per cent of its players and staff have tested positive for coronavirus.

In questo momento difficile per tutti noi, vorrei semplicemente invitarvi a seguire bene le indicazioni ufficiali e a prendervi cura di voi stessi e delle vostre famiglie ðð¾ un grande incoraggiamento e un infinito ringraziamento a tutto il personale medico e infermieristico. Siamo con voi!A post shared by (@blaisematuidiofficiel) Matuidi had urged his fans to "take care" in a video post on Instagram last weekend. "It's a complicated time. At the beginning, I didn't really realise how serious this disease was and the danger, how fast the contagion spread here in Italy," he said in the video. "In this difficult time for all of us, I just wanted to invite you to follow the official recommendations carefully and to take great care of yourself and your loved ones. A lot of encouragement and infinite thanks to all the medical and nursing staff. We are with you," he added. In total, 13 Serie A players have officially been diagnosed with the illness including seven from Sampdoria and three at Fiorentina. Italian midfielder Zaccagni, 24, had already been in self-isolation as a precautionary measure after Verona played Sampdoria on 8th March. "Zaccagni is doing well, in recent days, he has only had a few bouts of fever. The player, as well as the whole team, will extend their voluntary isolation at home until March 25, while continuing to be monitored," the eighth-placed Serie A club said. Several leagues including La Liga, Premier League and Serie A have all been suspended owing to the Coronavirus outbreak. As researchers in China and pharmaceutical companies including Abbvie, Inovio, and Gilead Sciences continue to work on developing Coronavirus vaccines and drugs, the World Health organisation (WHO) has declared Europe as the new 'epicentre' of the coronavirus pandemic.

  8. The Indian womenâs cricket team was considered to be the favourites to win the ICC Womenâs T20 World Cup in Australia. The assumption was made very rightly so as Harmanpreet Kaur and Co. looked unstoppable throughout the tournament. They were the only team to win every match that they played during the league round and made their way to the final as rain washed over South Africaâs dreams in the semi finals. However, the final at the Melbourne Cricket Ground was a whole different story. Congratulations Australia on winning the #T20WorldCup! Not the result we wanted today but we are proud of the way #TeamIndia played throughout the tournament. #INDvAUS Scorecard https://t.co/oNy9gq275c pic.twitter.com/uz6e0IKFUY â BCCI Women (@BCCIWomen) March 8, 2020After losing the toss, Kaurâs side was asked to bowl first and the downfall of the team, in the moment when it mattered the most, began. From the jump, the Australians looked determined to establish a massive score for their opponents. Openers Alyssa Healy and Beth Mooney, both of whom were given extra lives at the inception of their innings with dropped catches, went on to score 75 and 78 runs respectively. It was the ideal start to the finals that the Aussie would have hoped for. Openers power Australia to 184/4 in the #T20WorldCup final Beth Mooney - 78* | Alyssa Healy - 75https://t.co/rbnmWmvj49 pic.twitter.com/yoQlSufjRn â Cricbuzz (@cricbuzz) March 8, 2020Even though the rest of the batswomen that followed were not able to perform like their predecessors, the damage was already done. Kaurâs women had to chase a mammoth total of 184 runs within 20 overs to win their first World Cup title. Indiaâs opening batswoman Shafali Verma, who was phenomenal throughout the World Cup and achieved the number one spot in ICC World Rankings for Women in T20I, was dismissed in just two runs, Smriti Mandhana couldnât add more than 11 runs to Indiaâs total, Jemimah Rodriguez went away for a duck and skipper Harmanpreet Kaur disappointed with a four-run innings.

Losing in the match which matters the most, after being dominating throughout the world cup tournament, has been a recurring theme for all the Indian cricket teams be it Virat Kohliâs side, Priyamg Gargâs U19 squad or Kaurâs womenâs team. Back in 2019, Virat Kohli and the Men in Blue remained unbeaten throughout the ICC World Cup 2019 in England and Wales. They fell to Kane Williamsonâs New Zealand without even offering them a close contest. Harmanpreet Kaur in this WC, Priyam Garg in U-19 WC and Kohli recently. Indian captains aren't having a great time. â Kaushal Baid (@crickaushal168) March 8, 2020In January 2020, Priyam Garg and Yashasvi Jaiswalâs roster looked like the team to reckon with in South Africa but none of the âhard-hittingâ batters managed to keep their wicket against the Bangladesh bowling attack. And in March, 2020, the womenâs team failed to even reach the 100-run mark before losing all 10 wickets in an upsetting loss. Yes, they played well throughout the tournament, yes they were the youngest of all the 10 teams, and yes, their journey to the final was heroic. The future might be bright for Indian womenâs cricket but they will have to wait for two more years to prove their worth. View the full article
  9. The world of sports is not new to witnessing players dating each other or getting married. We've seen the likes of Sania Mirza and Shoaib Malik becoming a fan-favourite couple upon their marriage. The sports fanatics continue to adore German football star Bastian Schweinsteiger and Serbian tennis legend Ana Ivanovic who got married in 2016. And, the list is endless. But, amongst these power-couples in sports, there remains one that continues to make the fans drool in awe for their unconditional love for each other. Australian fast-bowler Mitchell Starc and Oz women's cricketer Alyssa Healy have captured the imagination of fans like no other. © Instagram/a_healy Since meeting as nine-years-olds on a cricket pitch, when the pair were giving trials for Sydney's Northern District Cricket Association, the love story between Healy and Starc has been nothing short of a fairytale. The pair tied the knot in April 2015 and have been together for six-and-a-half years now. Unsurprisingly, the Aussie duo is the first couple to win 'Player of the Tournament' awards at the coveted World Cups. While Starc had won the honours at the 2015 World Cup for his impressive 22-wicket haul, Healy bagged the award at the 2018 World T20 after amassing 225 runs in the tournament. © Instagram/a_healy But, their love isn't just defined by posing for shutterbugs together or posting cute pictures of each other on social media. Healy was probably the first one to give a befitting reply to Mitchell Johnson after he criticised Starc for his dismal performance in the 1st Test against India in December, 2018. And, Starc has done his bit too. In yet another display of their unconditional love, Starc appears to have set relationship goals after leaving his ongoing tour of South Africa to return back home and support his wife from the stands at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) which is set to host the historic final of the Women's T20 World Cup between India and Australia. © Twitter/@ahealy77 "It's a once-in-a-lifetime chance for Mitch to watch Alyssa in a home World Cup final and so we were happy to allow him to return home to support his wife and be part of a fantastic occasion," Australia head coach Justin Langer revealed. âThey were extremely supportive...so Iâm very appreciative for that and very grateful that I can go back and support Alyssa, much like she was around for our 2015 World Cup win. That was very special for all the boys to have their families involved so itâs a fantastic opportunity to repay that. Theyâve definitely captured the support around Australia and overseas as well and hopefully, thereâs a massive crowd in Melbourne on Sunday,â Starc said. So refreshing to see this!! Well done ?????? https://t.co/qKc80FEPQJ â Ashwin Ravichandran (@ashwinravi99) March 7, 2020 Starc's heartfelt gesture for his wife that saw him leaving his ongoing tour and miss the final ODI against the Proteas, has been cheered by all on social media. Amongst those lauding the Oz speedster, Indian spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, too, hailed Starc for his recent decision. View the full article
  10. When itâs Ranveer Singh, you already know that you are in for a roller-coaster ride for good. The actor is now all set for the release of his upcoming sports drama '83. © IMDB Recently, he took to his official social media handle and posted a still from '83 and captioned the photo saying, 'This is '83.' In the picture, he is seen lifting the World Cup trophy with a big smile on his face looking like former Indian skipper Kapil Dev and going by the picture, we can say that the make up artists have done a commendable job in making sure that Ranveer looks the part. #ThisIs83 .@kabirkhankk @deepikapadukone @Shibasishsarkar #SajidNadiadwala @vishinduri @ipritamofficial @RelianceEnt @_KaProductions @FuhSePhantom @NGEMovies @vibri_media @ZeeMusicCompany @PicturesPVR @83thefilm pic.twitter.com/hI8WvbNoL4 â Ranveer Singh (@RanveerOfficial) March 7, 2020 Just after he shared the picture on Twitter, people were beyond surprised to see Ranveer's uncanny resemblance with Kapil Dev and are even saying that this is going to be a milestone in Ranveerâs career.

Earlier, the actor had shared several pictures of himself as the cricketer and the resemblance of the actor with the former captain is praise-worthy. © Instagram/Deepika Padukone In an earlier interview, when Ranveer was asked about how he felt when he got the offer, he said, "I was born at the time when cricket was big time. When Kabir Sahab (director Kabir Khan) had come to me and said that there will be a film on '83, I was like 'finally'. And when he was narrating it to me, I was like 'woooh'! It is not a story just about cricket but a human story." The film also stars Deepika Padukone, Saqib Saleem, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Hardy Sandhu, Jiiva, Ammy Virk, Pankaj Tripathi, Boman Irani, Jatin Sarna, and Chirag Patil, among others.

  11. Over the years, cricket, as a sport, has been thoroughly dominated by men. Whether it's the viewership, brand endorsements or prize money, the women plying their trade in the sport, more often than not, fail to get their due. But, while it's still a long way to go for the parity to prevail in the women's game, it's safe to say that the times are changing for good. The public interest in women's cricket is now more than ever before. The International Cricket Council (ICC) has initiated standalone tournaments for women. There are even private T20 leagues which continue to provide much-needed exposure to female cricketers by playing with cricketers from different nations. And, it has all culminated into the evolution of women's cricket as a whole. © Twitter/@T20WorldCup It remains to be seen whether MCG gets filled or not this Sunday. And, for India and Australia, being crowned World T20 champions and holding the coveted trophy will surely dominate their thoughts. But, even those part of the ever-competitive world of elite sport can see the bigger picture to what can and probably will take place at the hallowed MCG. "I know it's going to be a cracking final. I wish I could be there in front of 90,000 people. I really hope you get 90,000 people. Women's cricket deserves it. It's been there for a long time. It's now the time for us, and obviously women's sport, to rise," South African captain Dane van Niekerk, who endured a heart-breaking semi-final exit with her teammates on 5th March, couldn't have summed it better.

  12. There are plenty of reasons to not post your Starbucks cup with your name on it online, the biggest one being that no one, literally no one gives a f*ck, but well, sometimes it can also lead to police arresting criminals. After years of being able to outsmart the police, Delhi gangster Jitender Maan, aka Gogi, was ultimately caught after a picture of a Starbucks cup with his name on it was posted on Facebook. Okay, background story first, the guy in question is apparently one of the most wanted gangsters and extortionists in the city. He's known to extort huge amounts of money from rich businessmen and politicians alike and calling it "protection", and of course, he threatened them against calling the police. Back in 2016, the police did manage to catch him after a deadly stand-off between him and his rival, but unfortunately, he managed to escape the police custody. The police had not been able to catch him since then, but an innocent little Starbucks cup became his downfall. Just like every person who's ever had Starbucks, one of Gogi's close associates, Kuldeep Maan, aka Fajja also decided to share the picture of his cup online without realizing how much of a risk it was. After seeing that one of the cups in the picture had the name 'Gogi' on it, the police was able to get a lead on him and they went through all the Starbucks in the city before they found his whereabouts. Talking to The Indian Express, DCP (Special Cell) Manishi Chandra said, "We got information that Gogi and his gang members were living in a flat at Mapsko Casabella, Sector 82. Accompanied by a SWAT team, special cell personnel surrounded Block B-4. Finding no escape route, the men surrendered." What is the lesson here? Stop sharing your Starbucks cup pictures, no one cares! View the full article
  13. The tournament was scheduled to take place in Pakistan but India said it will not come due to security concerns
  14. Following the partition of British India in 1947, Pakistan and India have struggled consistently to see eye to eye. From cross-border tensions to varied political stands of their respective governments, the two neighbouring countries have developed one of the fiercest rivalries on the planet. And, there has been no respite in recent times either. Whether it was the 2008 Mumbai attacks or the dastardly Pulwama attacks last year, India and Pakistan almost came to the brink of war with subsequent air-strikes and aerial combats between the neighbouring countries in 2019. The intervening months only deepened the perennial enmity and the standoff between India and Pakistan continues. The tumultuous relations between the two nations have further transcended across sports. Owing to the severed bilateral ties, both India and Pakistan continue to deny their respective sports teams from visiting each other for numerous tournaments. But, India finds itself in a peculiar situation after an 'unofficial' team reportedly reached Pakistan for the upcoming Kabaddi World Cup. #KabbadiWC starts today Captains with trophy pic.twitter.com/6BKE7UcW4T â Kabaddi World Cup (@KabaddiWorldCup) February 9, 2020 According to media reports, the Punjab Kabaddi Association (PKA) has allegedly sent nearly 60 kabaddi players to Pakistan, the host nation for this year's edition of the World Cup that began on 9th February. Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju, on 10th February, clarified that no permission was sought to send kabaddi players to Pakistan for the coveted tournament. Tejinder Singh Midukheda, vice-president of Punjab Kabaddi Association revealed that the association had received an invitation from the Pakistan Kabaddi Federation for the competition. "These players have gone to play the Kabaddi match in their individual capacity.

  15. The India versus Bangladesh U19 World Cup final turned out to be a lot more than just another 50-over match between two Asian countries for the most glorious recognition an Under-19 team could manage to win. After the weather gave the players and fans of the two teams a good scare as it rained for two days continuously at the Senwes Park, Potchefstroom, the match commenced with a low-scoring start by the Indian openers, Yashasvi Jaiswal and Divyaansh Saxena. However, things soon took a turn for the worse when the Bangladeshi bowling attack began to irk Priyam Gargâs batsmen with some cheeky trash talking in between overs and after almost every other delivery.

The Young Tigersâ plan to keep up with the sledging alongside some excellent show with the ball finally worked as the Boys in Blue were wrapped up at a minimal score of 177. Despite a lot of ups and downs in the second half of the match and the rains disrupting the match for a bit as well, the Bangladesh batting order behind and heroic knock of Parvez Hossain Emon and skipper Akhbar Ali, was able to take home their maiden U19 trophy.

On-field umpires Sam Nogajski and Adrian Holdstock found themselves to be babysitting the players from both sides with the hopes of maintaining the spirit of the game. While bowlers like Shoriful Islam and Ravi Bishnoi forgot about the gameâs âbeing gentleâ part and abused the batsmen on strike throughout their spells, the officials had to keep their calm and deal with them politely, given the gravity of the situation.

Holdstock had to ask them not to do that, with a gentle smile on his face. #INDvBAN Wow ..few minutes ago pressure was on india and now silly point and short leg!! well done #bishnoi ð®ð³.. #U19WorldCup #U19CWCFinal â INCOGNITO (@analonda69) February 9, 2020 The pressure of staying focused and look for the minutest of details during all the appeals India made during the second innings, especially during Bishnoiâs overs was also something they had to deal with for over three hours as well. As far as the third umpire, Ravindra Wimalasiri is concerned, he found himself to be in a unique predicament when he did not have to decide IF a batsman was out but WHO was out. Late during Indiaâs batting innings, the on-field umpires sent a decision upstairs to Wimalasiri to see who amongst Dhruv Jurel and Atharva Ankolekar was out as both of them ran towards the same side of the pitch and crossed the crease almost at the same time. Contrary to the commentatorsâ opinion, the third umpire announced that it was Jurel who had to head towards the pavilion. Atharva Ankolekar and Dhruv Jurel run out was a bizarre incident in Cricket history ever in ICC U19 World Cup 2020. #DhruvJurel #AtharvaAnkolekar #U19WC #U19WorldCup #U19WorldCup2020 pic.twitter.com/3uWrkDQLfn â Vikash Gaur (@thevikashgaur) February 9, 2020 As if all of this was not enough, the evening ended on a rather shameful note when a couple of players from either side got in a physical altercation and started pushing and shoving each other only to be separated by the officials. If you were a spectator, youâd think that the umpires were trying to get involved in everything and were micromanaging them instead of letting the boys play their game, but in retrospect I have some new found respect for the way they managed things on the field while maintaining the flow of the game.

  16. The final match of the ICC U19 World Cup 2020 had more twists and turns than an Abbas-Mustan movie. First, the Indian batting order, that had been exceptional throughout the tournament, failed to take their side over the 200-run mark. Then the Indian bowlers, especially Ravi Bishnoi, went on a four-wicket streak to bring the Boys in Blue back in contention. After that, Bangladeshi opener Parvez Hossain Emon had to go away with a hamstring cramp only to come back and play a match-winning knock.

But there was one thing that remained constant during the entire timeline of the clash and that was the constant trash-talking and verbal altercations between the hot-headed players from both teams. Be it Bishnoi teasing Emon to connect with the ball while abusing him with no second thoughts or Shoriful Islam getting under the skin of Priyam Gargâs strikers during the first innings with a pesky smile on his face, where you could cut the tension with a knife.

The umpires had a lot of additional responsibilities during the match to make sure that the situation remained calm and within decorum but the physical altercation surely got out of hand. Former South Africna cricketer, JP Duminy shared a video of the incident while congratulation the Young Tigers on their historical win but the footage also happened to catch the moment when the fight began: Amazing scenes here in Potchefstroom as Bangladesh pull off a miraculous victory and are the u/19 world champions.. well fought india.. standard of cricket today and throughout this tournament has been world class.. congrats Bangladesh #U19WorldCup #FutureStars pic.twitter.com/JD7re0KLo2 â JP Duminy (@jpduminy21) February 9, 2020 Check out another angle of the quarrel: Shameful end to a wonderful game of cricket. #U19CWCFinal pic.twitter.com/b9fQcmpqbJ â Sameer Allana (@HitmanCricket) February 9, 2020Yes, it is true that these were just the Under-19 teams and you could say that the adrenaline got the better of them but to think that these athletes are the future of the game and will be seen as the flagbearer of the game of cricket at an international level within a couple of years is rather unfortunate. I hope that while their skills continue to improve, their temper does too. View the full article
  17. Set 178 to win, Bangladesh slumped to 106 for six before captain Akbar Ali got them back on track
  18. It all began a long, long time ago. 2014 to be exact - in the early months leading up to Indiaâs most groundbreaking general elections so far. Before Narendra Modi became Prime Minister, several social outreach programmes were conducted to cement his influence among the masses - one of them being a campaign called #ChaiPeCharcha. Today, six years on, weâre seeing chai and politics mix once again - just in a very different camp. In a new campaign called âKaam Ki Chaiâ, the Aam Aadmi party has set up chai stalls throughout all of Delhiâs assembly constituencies, with various kinds of tea on offer, each highlighting various achievements and campaign promises of Delhiâs currently reigning party. The campaign was spearheaded by an Ahmedabad MBA-dropout named Praful Billor. Billor, who goes by the moniker âMBA-Chaiwalaâ, contacted the Delhi chief minister directly and offered to spread through the tea stall concept information about the work done by the Kejriwal government. © PTI According to party members, 30-40 volunteers will soon join him and put up tea stalls in all assembly constituencies here. © PTI The first available chai is named shiksha wali chai (education tea), and represents recent work on education facilities and programmes in Delhi, such as mega PTMs (Parent-Teacher Meetings) and the cabinetâs recent approval of a âSports Universityâ, which aims to help train and develop world-class athletes. Another variety named swasthya wali chai (health tea) represents the partyâs work on improving healthcare facilities in the capital for government hospitals, and initiatives such as free tests, surgeries and medicines, mohalla clinics and poly-clinics. The third kind, âspecial teaâ aims to highlight special subsidies such as cheap electricity, water and free bus/metro travel for women - while the last kind, vikas wali chai (development tea) focuses on the governmentâs doorstep delivery of citizen services, free Wi-Fi schemes and installation of CCTV cameras. © BCCL While Billor seems to clearly have a favourite, he insists that he is not directly associated with any political party and simply wishes to support good work being done. He said he decided to come all the way from Ahmedabad to put up a tea stall here as he believes that Kejriwal has delivered good governance in Delhi, which "is evident on the ground and needs no promotion".

  19. During the 44th over of Indiaâs innings in the first ODI in Mumbai, Rishabh Pant suffered a head concussion following a Pat Cummins bouncer which struck the batsman right in the helmet and also caused him to lose his wicket. While Pant was immediately rushed for medical assistance, the wicket-keeping gloves were handed over to KL Rahul. It was later confirmed that Pant was kept under observation and will not be travelling with the team for the second ODI in Rajkot. Update: Rishabh Pant has got a concussion after being hit on his helmet while batting. KL Rahul is keeping wickets in his absence. Pant is under observation at the moment. #TeamIndia #INDvAUS pic.twitter.com/JkVElMacQc â BCCI (@BCCI) January 14, 2020 Now where does that leave the Men in Blue as far as roster selection and batting order are concerned? If this situation would have presented itself last month, the answer to this question might have been a lot more than it seems to be now. Back then, an out of form Shikhar Dhawan suffered a big knee injury and was out of action for multiple series. All that while, it was Rahul who opened the innings with Rohit Sharma and he was doing a phenomenal job. We all believed that this top-form Rahul was the end of Dhawanâs time with the team and that the southpaw was going to be dropped soon. But in the last two T20Is against Sri Lanka and the first Australia ODI, a healed Dhawan has looked like his old self - confident and very capable of playing under immense pressure. In addition, the left-right combination of Dhawan and Sharma at the top would definitely help India during the upcoming ICC Menâs T20 World Cup. View this post on InstagramFIFTY! A hard-fought half-century for @shikhardofficial off 66 deliveries. This is his 28th in ODIs. #INDvAUSA post shared by (@indiancricketteam) So what happens to Rahul? The Mangalore-born has proven himself to be a more than capable wicket-keeper during the Indian Premier League and other domestic tournaments such as the Vijay Hazare Trophy, and his batting speaks for itself. During the Mumbai match on Tuesday, he showed that he does a significantly better job in following the ball from behind the stumps than Pant. His assessment of the trajectory of the ball during David Warnerâs LBW on a Shardul Thakur appeal also helped Kohli save the DRS, something Pant has been specifically bad at, granted the sample size is small. If Dhawan and Sharma are fixed as openers, that leaves Rahul with the third and fourth spot, based on how flexible Virat Kohli is. Even though Kohli has said that he isnât all that worried about playing on either of the spots, Indian veteran VVS Laxman decoded why Kohli at 4 wouldnât work. âI donât see this working. Sachin Tendulkar was the best player the world had ever seen. But he never relished batting at number four.â Laxman said. âYou want your best batsman to play maximum number of deliveries and set the game up and finish the game for the team, especially against quality attack. One cannot afford to experiment against this Australian bowling line-up," he said. âYouâve got someone like Virat Kohli that has played 230-odd one-day matches and 180 of those have been at No.3 and he has scored almost 10,000 runs at that particular position," he added. With Shreyas Iyer sliding to five, Rahul is left with the cursed number four spot, which isnât the best of news for either the player or the team. In his six-year ODI career, Rahul has played a total of four innings at two-down and has only made 52 runs with the highest score of 26, according to HowsSTAT. Even amidst the crisis that Team India has found itself to be in, what is certain is that KL Rahul is a far superior batsman than Rishabh Pant. He has the shots, the experience and the patience to make it through a challenging innings that the 22-year-old clearly lacks. Pantâs time away from the field could turn out to be a blessing in disguise for the team as this gives them the opportunity to explore a new and improved Rahul at the number four spot of doom. Will he be the one to lift the curse? View the full article
  20. Former South African skipper AB de Villiers. Photo: FileBRISBANE: South African star AB de Villiers is keen to make an international comeback at the T20 World Cup this year, but admits there are no guarantees he will be picked. The batting maestro bowed out of representing his country in 2018, saying he was "tired" after a 14-year career during which he was hailed as one of the best players in the game. He then made himself available for the one-day World Cup last year, only to be rejected, with officials saying he left it too late and calling him up would be unfair to other players. The 35-year-old has now given selectors plenty of time to consider him for the T20 World Cup in Australia in October. "There's a lot that needs to happen before that becomes reality," he told cricket.com.au after hitting 40 from 32 balls on his Big Bash League debut for Brisbane Heat against Adelaide Strikers on Tuesday. "I would love to. I've been talking to 'Bouch' (new South Africa coach Mark Boucher), (new director of cricket) Graeme Smith and (captain) Faf (du Plessis) back home, we´re all keen to make it happen. "It's a long way away still, and plenty can happen — there's the IPL coming up, I've still got to be in form at that time. So I´m thinking of throwing my name in the hat and hoping that everything will work out." De Villiers won fans around the world for mixing traditional and unorthodox shots, as well as his fast scoring and ability to hit the ball to all parts of the ground. He played 114 Tests, retiring with an average of 50.66 after smashing 8,765 runs. In limited overs, he hit 9,577 runs at an average of 53.50 and in the shortest format made 1,672 runs from his 78 T20Is. Boucher and Smith are former colleagues of de Villiers and he said he wanted to work with them again. "Absolutely, they're my friends and I played 10-plus years with them internationally," he said. "We've been through a lot and it's great to have them involved again, and as I said, hopefully I'll be involved again as well pretty soon."
  21. There's always room for true love. It doesn't matter where it's from, who brings it to you or how many times your heart's been broken. When love comes knocking, you've ought to open the door and welcome it with nothing but warmth. And while you do that for yourself, make room for happiness for others around you too by acknowledging their preferences and choices that they've made. © Instagram When Colin met the love of his life on a dating app, he had no idea what lay before him. When he came across Andrew, while swiping, he could barely make him out from his pictures. It's the conversations he had when they matched that led him to believe Andrew was someone he could look forward to meeting. Andrew's added interest in Indian culture was something that highly impressed Colin. They both live in Chicago and the freedom to express one's sexual preferences or/and sexuality is immense. Even though Colin is Indian, he understood the prejudices and the not-so-alarming discontent that stems from intense conditioning, towards homosexuals men, from where he is. But he knew, if his family accepted him and his partner, he wouldn't have to worry about anyone else. © Instagram Andrew's openness in admitting he really loved the Indian culture and his want to express the fact that he deeply cared for his partner, by making him adrak -wali- chai, made Colin fall more in love with him. They decided to tie the knot, in July last year, at Colin's family home in South India. © Instagram The celebrations were huge and of course very welcoming for Andrew and his family. They had a temple wedding and a church wedding, and Andrew dressed in traditional south Indian wedding attire. Love knows no bounds and has no boundaries, religion, or even sexual preferences. Love is freedom. It's an entity so free, that if it's ever bound, it'll cease to exist. And Andrew and Colin's love is the truest testimony to that! © Instagram They both don't know what the future holds but they know for a fact that love like theirs is unreal, rare and possibly ever-lasting. Here's their story (narrated by Colin) on the Officials Humans Of Bombay's Instagram page: “I was swiping away on a dating app when I came across Andrew. I couldn't figure out anything from his photo. But when we matched, conversation came easily–he loved Indian culture. I was living in Chicago & I missed home, so I could share my excitement for spicy food. But he sounded too good to be true! © Instagram 2 months of texting later, our first date was over a bowl of Ramen! When he invited me over for tea, I was expecting American 'tea', but when I walked into his home, I was hit with the smell of ginger-garlic! He had a steel spice box & when he made me tea, it was adrak chai! I felt comfortable with him–we were so similar in our beliefs. In 9 months, the universe played its role–our rents were coming to an end so we moved in together! I'd even make us dabbas with dal & chawal for lunch! © Instagram The decision to get married was simple–we'd found our soulmates in each other! We flew out to India to tell my parents & they organized a south Indian banana leaf meal to celebrate us. We got married in June 2019 & had a huge celebration–we had a Haldi, Sangeet & a black tie party! After all, you only get married to the love of your life once! Our family & friends helped us organize it all–we were surrounded by so much love. One of the best moments was when my dad raised a toast & said, 'If you have a child love & understand them, if you don't understand them, then love them more.' Our wedding was perfect! But getting to where we are today wasn't easy–I've been sent to therapy to 'get better' & I've had priests pray for my soul. But all of it has led me to him, so it was worth it. © Instagram The first time we went to India after our marriage was so lovely. There was an Indian swagat & we were showered with so much love. Our families accepted us beautifully–my mom always asks about him when I talk to her & the same goes for his family. © Instagram I don't know what the future holds, but that doesn't frighten me–because a love like ours was meant to be. We're going to continue making Bollywood playlists, we'll always come home to adrak-wali-chai… & we'll always fall asleep knowing that when we wake up, 'we' will still be there tomorrow & every single day for the rest of our lives.” © Instagram If I had a penny for negating the fact that true love exists, I'd fill an entire jar, but every time I am cynical about the fact that love indeed does exist, I go back to what Andrew and Colin share and reaffirm my faith in love, and more!
