  9. The first T20I against New Zealand will mark the new era in Indian cricket after the departure of former head coach Ravi Shastri and ex-captain Virat Kohli. While the former has parted ways with the Indian team after his glittering tenure came to an end, the latter has been given the much-needed break after relinquishing captaincy in the shortest format. The Kohli-Shastri partnership took Indian cricket to new heights in the last four years, especially in the game’s most challenging format -- Test cricket. Under their guidance, India became a force to reckon with across the globe, beating teams both home and away. © Reuters In the past, legendary all-rounder Kapil Dev has openly criticised the Indian players on a number of issues. He called out Kohli and Shastri when they tried to interfere with the selection matters. He also chided the players for choosing IPL money over playing for their country. So while evaluating their tenure, many would have expected him to be strict but he was anything but that. Contrary to the common perception, the former India skipper, like most fans, also believes that the Kohli-Shastri duo did an incredible job, which included winning back-to-back Test series on Australian soil. © Reuters The former skipper, under whose leadership India became the world champion for the first time in 1983, added that despite dominating around the world they could not lift any major ICC trophy and it would be their biggest regret, if any. “I think both have done a super job. I understand that they could not win India a major trophy but if we look at the last five years, since Kohli took over, there has been nothing lack. The big thing lacking is an ICC trophy. Apart from that, India have won in Australia, England… wherever they have travelled, they have beaten the other team,” Kapil Dev said in an interview with Uncut. © Reuters Talking about India’s recent performance in the just-concluded T20 World Cup, Kapil Dev said that had the Men In Blue reached the knockout stage, he wouldn’t have complained about it. But the fact that, despite being among the pre-tournament favourites, India couldn’t even qualify for the semis was hard to digest. “Reaching the World Cup knockouts is also a huge deal. I think after the 2007 World Cup in West Indies, this T20 World Cup is where it felt that India were disappointing. Had they reached the top 4 and then lost, it is understandable. But if you don't reach the top 4, there will be criticism. © Reuters “If you look at it from a trophy point of view, that's a different thing altogether. But if you look at their cricket, the brand they have played in the last five years, I would give them 90 percent marks out of 100, and deduct 10 percent marks for not winning an ICC Trophy,” he added. Like the legend said, one bad tournament doesn’t mean that the team is poor. Rather than going all out on criticism, the fans must not forget these were the same players who gave us countless moments to cherish in the last few years. © Reuters No doubt, India couldn’t match the expectations in this year’s T20 World Cup but one bad competition cant tarnish Kohli and Shastri’s legacy and we all must be proud of what they achieved during their combined tenure.

  10. The outbreak of Covid-19 across the globe changed the way we live and look at the world-physically and emotionally. As we continue to usher ourselves into this mould of the new ‘normal’, the repercussions of a post-Covid reality continue to create ripples in our lives. Looking from the lens of how it affected the men in India, the social construction of gender was twisted and has taken a new shape. To ignite the much-needed conversation of ‘post Covid evolution of masculinity’ on International Men's Day, we decided to look at the various aspects of what changed and how it changed for the men in the country, and above all, how it redefined ‘masculinity’ for them . Thanks to Imtiaz Ali, Ayan Mukherjee and Ranbir Kapoor, the idea of bildungsroman, or coming of age, has become a hackneyed concept. Although this is a thing that everyone (okay, maybe not everyone) actually goes through at some point in their lives, we don’t give it a second thought anymore. © Dharma Productions Much like everything else the pandemic had an impact on, this process, this journey one has to go through to “become a man,” or come of age, underwent a rather radical change. For starters, for a whole lot of people, this journey was very accelerated, almost as if someone had pushed you off a cliff. For others, this may have been excruciatingly slow, gnawing away at their sanity and perhaps their very identity. © iStock For me, it was almost instantaneous, and yet it was in waves. However, I was too slow, or rather too occupied to even realise this. Given that the proverbial fog has cleared, and things have started to settle down, I think now would be a good time to take stock of the situation that I am pretty sure most guys my age would find themselves in. Here are six things that I realised about “Becoming A Man” during, and after the pandemic. Becoming The Parent To Your Parents © iStock If children are lucky enough to see their parents in their old age, they might have to take care of them. This means feeding them, ensuring that they are comfortable, that they have everything they need, taking care of their medicines and ensuring that they take them on time. Normally, you would be around 45-55 years old when you go through this. Because of this pandemic, I went through that at the age of 26. When my mother contracted Covid for the first time, I was worried. This was in early 2020, when even the best of doctors did not know what to do and how to go about things. Even getting tested was a herculean task because no matter where you went, there were no tests available. Luckily, mom had a minor case of Covid, and with some experimental treatments, she made full recovery in about two weeks. Almost a year later, when she contracted Covid for the second time during the second wave, it was bad. I was petrified. An agnostic, this was the time when I started praying. Unless you have had an extremely rough childhood, you rarely think how your parents will die. You may think about them being dead at times, but you don’t come close to a situation where that might become true. Luckily, she had a miraculous recovery yet again. Suddenly, You’re An Adult © iStock And no, I don’t mean that “you can buy your own cigarettes” or “you can have a driving license” adult. The one thing that this pandemic has surely done, is to help put things in perspective. The things that I would fight over with my brother seemed meaningless, and petty. The things that I would just ignore thinking that it isn’t my business, or rather responsibility, became my responsibility. In case my parents fell desperately ill, I would have to find a hospital, and get the doctors to find a bed for them. I had to keep a track of our health insurances, and ensure that they were valid, and up to date. I had to ensure that people around me did not see me flustered, or in a panic, or that would have made things only worse. You “Run” The House © iStock Taking care of yourself, cooking for yourself, washing your clothes et al is fine when you’re living by yourself, in hostels or PGs. Taking care of your family, that too when you also have to take care of your office and earn a living is a completely different ball game. No matter how hectic your office schedule seems to be, you just have to find the time to cook, clean, and shop for groceries. As mundane as it may sound, buying groceries and your monthly supplies when things were normal, when you would simply be handed a list of things to buy, was different. Taking stock of your kitchen and your supplies closet, noting everything down, calculating how long something will last - all of this hits you differently. Dealing with everyday life, without a strong support system is painful. This is when you realise that the support system that you have around you, mainly your domestic workers, you depend on them more, than they depend on you. Your Relationship With Money Changes © iStock These sudden onset of responsibilities mean that you become acutely aware of what money actually means. If you have been a spendthrift, this realisation hits a little more deeply. You start saving up, and this time in a much more serious manner. You start reading up on investments to the best of your ability, trying to make sense of terms that seem convoluted like “expense ratios” or “NAV.” Instead of saving up to buy the latest iPhone, you start saving up for a situation we call "just in case" Having said that, you also come to realise that at the end of the day, money is a tool, a means to an end, and will therefore mean something different to everyone. Before the pandemic hit, I would haggle over Rs 5-10 with every vegetable vendor that I would come across. Negotiating with rickshaw pullers felt like I was embodying The Art Of The Deal. So much so, that aunties, all across India would be proud of me, and perhaps claim me as one of their own. You see, my mother had taught me well. Now, having realised that perhaps that the Rs 5-10 would be much more beneficial for the rickshaw puller, I don’t feel like haggling. Coming Face To Face With Failures, Despite The Best Of Intentions © iStock Picture this. One day, you’re speaking to your best friend, and are planning to meet and catch up on what’s been going on in your lives. Lockdown hits, and almost as if you’re on autopilot, you forget about your meetup. Then, one day, you get a call from your friend, and you get to know that his father is seriously ill, and eventually he passes away. What do you say to your friend, who has just lost his father? How do you deal with the fact that in the darkest phase of their lives, you cannot be there for them? How do you reconcile with the fact that one of the most popular and friendly guys in college is having trouble in finding people to perform his parents' last rites? Or worse, what do you say to the surviving parents of your friend, who succumbed to the atrocious monster that Covid was, at the age of 26? You realise that there’s nothing that you can do to unburden them, that this isn’t a situation that can be fixed with a few cigarettes and a bottle of Old Monk. Finally, you accept you have failed, and you move on, almost as if you’ve started becoming an android. Sure, you must’ve seen death before, but at this scale? Dealing with the death of your favourite grandparent, who’s lived a good and long life, is totally different from dealing with the death of your best friend, who’s your age. You Start Thinking About Your Well Being © iStock Amid all this, if you ever get the time to just sit by yourself, with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, you will come to the realisation that you had got your priorities all messed up, that you were chasing the wrong things in life. What comes first and foremost is your well-being, and then, of those around you. You start taking care of your health, you go out of your way to eat right, you start exercising even without thinking about the gym. And then, there is your mental health. There is a reason why conversations around mental health were taking place at an unprecedented level during this pandemic. If one is looking for a silver lining in the cloud that this despairing pandemic has been, let it be the fact that people have realised just how important mental health is and are finally ready to have a conversation around this. The Big Picture © UTV Spotboy The milestones of coming age may not have changed that much during the pandemic. What has changed is how those milestones were spaced out. In a better world, these are milestones that one generally crosses over a period of decades. Thanks to the pandemic, people who came of age in the last two years had to go through these milestones in a matter of weeks. Which perhaps brings us to the second silver lining in all of this, the resilience of human spirit. I don’t mean to sound esoteric at all, but I genuinely feel that people who have survived these two years with their spirits intact, can survive anything. As for people who have just survived, well, you’re not alone. View the full article
  11. Fans of the historical strategy game have been eagerly awaiting Thursday´s release of Age of Empires IV for PC, which returns to the medieval era.
  12. FIFA 22 may just be the last football game by Electronic Arts that will use the popular nomenclature as the company is now exploring a complete rebrand. In an official statement, EA hinted that the company is exploring new names for the franchise due to expiring license agreements. © EUIPO “As we look ahead, we’re also exploring the idea of renaming our global EA SPORTS football games. This means we’re reviewing our naming rights agreement with FIFA, which is separate from all our other official partnerships and licenses across the football world,” EA said in a statement. After the announcement, gaming outlet Polygon did some digging and found that the gaming company has already filed trademarks for a new name. EA filed the trademark registration with both the UK’s Intellectual Property Office and the European Union Intellectual Property office. The filing was done last week according to Polygon and the new name is expected to be “EA Sports FC.” © EA Sports It seems like EA’s agreement to use the FIFA license may have come to expiration which could be the reason why the company is exploring new branding for the football franchise. While fans of the FIFA games can expect the series to move forward with similar gameplay and mechanics, they can expect the football games to have a different name from 2023. Since the license with FIFA is just to use the federation’s name for EA’s football game, it might not cause a big change in the overall look and feel of the franchise. © EA Sports This could also mean that we could get FIFA games from different developers such as 2K, Konami or others. FIFA may have opted to license the federation’s name to a different developer or we may not even see a FIFA game anytime in the near future. The FIFA series is one of the most successful franchises for EA where the company reported sales of 9 million copies within the first week of release of the latest edition. However, the company has been criticised for the usage of micro-transactions, re-skins and re-releasing the same version of the game on the Nintendo Switch. Changing the name of the football game franchise might come as a shock to fans once it is official and it will be interesting to see how players react to the name change.
