  1. Sometimes you wake up in the middle of a deeply gratifying dream and wish to drop dead asleep again to resume or finish the storyline that your subconscious mind was playing out. I was invited to London to watch an English Premier League game, and my consciously Manchester United-crazy mind demanded that I squeeze in a visit to Old Trafford, the Theatre of Dreams, to fulfil a lifelong dream of watching my favourite club play live. And much to the dismay of my boss, thatâs exactly what I did. View this post on InstagramIn need of some #WednesdayMotivation? Why not book a trip to the city of Manchester? ð ð¸: @asinglestepblogA post shared by (@nationalexpress) United were due to play Burnley in an English Premier League encounter (honorary mention to partners Budweiser 0.0, who made my trip possible) on January 23, 2020, having endured an eventfully ill-fated month till that point. Recent losses against Arsenal, Liverpool and (in the cup vs) Manchester City meant that tickets were easily available on manutd.com for this home fixture against a then-bottom table side. Little did we know that the game would end 0-2 in favour of the visitors and would trigger the infamous walkouts that might even continue after the ongoing winter break; but more on that, later. To buy tickets for home matches, follow these steps: - Sign up for a free membership on the website - Use the membership number to sign in - Visit the ticketing section on the website and select the game you want to watch - The blocks coloured in blue will have vacant seats - Upon selecting, the website suggests the best available seat - Among âadult,â âunder 16,â âseniorâ etc, pick the category that you belong to and proceed to pay - Tickets are delivered if booked well in advance, otherwise you can collect them on matchday at the ticket counters with valid ID Note: You can follow a similar process to buy tickets for the stadium tour. Categories include but are not limited to âEnhanced Tourâ and âLegends Tour.â Next step was to find accommodation and stay, hostelworld.com and rome2rio.com always being my go-to websites. A four-hour non-stop bus is the most affordable and time-effective commute. Mine was a 12-pound National Express coach that drops you in the heart of Manchester, near Piccadilly Gardens. The dorm was at walkable distance, in the most hipster-ish neighbourhood on Hilton Street. The ClubI checked in, lit a cigarette and immediately after the first drag, it sank in. I WAS IN FUCKING MANCHESTER! FOR REAL, I WAS GOING TO WATCH A GAME AT OLD TRAFFORD! At a loss for words, my overcome state of mind at this point is best summed up by a fellow Red Devil from USA, Chris Castaneda, who told B/R after visiting OT for the first time in 2015 : âThe buildup is incredibly unnerving, you struggle so much waiting for the moment that you show up at the stadium five hours before the match, when no one else is around, and just take the time to walk around and admire everything about the ground.â © MENSXP/Alshaar After a quick kebab meal (I love eating doner kebabs in Europe), I was advised by the hostel staff to take the tram to Old Trafford. The tram was right next to Piccadilly Gardens. Tickets can be purchased from vending machines. Mine cost £ 2.40. I got off at Trafford Bar station and exited on to Warwick Road, Google Mapped my way down towards the stadium, passed the Old Trafford cricket stadium, bought a retro Eric Cantona scarf, and here I was (exactly five hours ahead of kickoff) â staring at the glass walls of my footballing mecca through the silhouette of the Holy Trinity. One big downside of travelling alone (apart from not having a personal photographer) though is that sometimes when youâre dumbfounded, getting a second opinion becomes a daunting task. Your mind simply goes blank and instincts take over. Some might call it âliving in the moment;â for me it translated into paying a father-son duo three pounds to click pictures of me with replica trophies in front of the stadiumâs main entrance â guilty pleasures; not complaining. © MENSXP/Alshaar By the time I was done collecting my ticket, video calling loved ones back home, indulging in front camera vanity and realising that you should always book the stadium tour in advance, the sun had set and more matchgoers had arrived. A stadium parikrama was followed by joining the crowd in anticipation of the team buses. That would take another hour or so, but I encountered two very interesting young men from Nottingham leaning against the barricades. In his late teens, Joe Roberto, a fellow Man United supporter, was here for the first time with his friend Antonio, who is half Italian and is more interested in the Serie A than the EPL. The duo was fascinated by my work that takes me around the world (very humbly; you can read about my trips to Russia , Italy , Vietnam , France etc and decide for yourself), but more so because they were both considering applying for police jobs given the high crime rate in their county. © MENSXP/Alshaar So far, the day had only been about my dreams and my ambitions, but this conversation gave me a window inside the lives of the actual people living in this part of the United Kingdom. Thereâs sport, thereâs religion; of course money matters; and then, thereâs a growing sense of national pride, which one might not be unfamiliar with, irrespective of your current coordinates. The light-hearted banter, nonetheless, very much continued with Joe and I outnumbering Antonio. But the team buses had now arrived and the starting XI on the day would set the tone for the impending doom that awaited United and its frustrated fanbase, on the pitch. View this post on Instagramð´ And in the red corner... #MUFCA post shared by (@manchesterunited) Up in Block N42 of the Sir Alex Ferguson stand, a few flights of stairs, a pint of beer and half an hour later, the chatter was about Mason Greenwood not starting, Phil Jones replacing an injured Victor Lindelof, and Andreas Pereira being given yet another shot at the #10 role. The teams came out and bitterly honest words from a loyal United fan Steven Narloch, which I had read online in his Old Trafford testimony, flashed across my mind: âExit off the tram, see those huge white arches as I walk up Warwick Road, enter the ground, climb up a few flights of stairs, find my seat, and then do something that always baffles me; clap out the teams as they emerge from the tunnel, as if youâre thanking the highly paid people playing for the team of your choice just for turning up.â © MENSXP/Alshaar But despite a continuously intensifying grudge against how the club is being run, fans warmly welcomed the players onto the pitch. The game got off to a yawn-inducing start and all the frustration from watching United play on TV in the last few years started coming back to me. To make matters worse, the hosts went a goal behind by the 39th minute, after Chris Wood headed a free kick past David De Gea. Nothing much changed in the second half and the 56th minute saw Burnley double their lead this time via Jay Rodriguez. My dream debut in Old Trafford started feeling more and more anticlimactic. But we hang on till Fergie time, donât we? Turns out, we donât because a) the tram gets super cramped if you leave late b) the commitment of the current lot doesnât live up to the indomitable spirit of Sir Alex Fergusonâs legendary United sides. As I held back my tears and exited defeated, around the 80th minute mark, the turnout outside was astoundingly greater than what was left behind in the stadium. We would later learn that this was one of the most infamous walkouts in the recent history of the club and fans have in fact made a tradition of it since then. Most of us have had enough; and itâs not just about this one loss. The way the club has been run since the Glazer takeover is appalling â from transfers and wages to ownership and fund allocation. Sir Alex Ferguson had preserved the old guard, but since his departure in 2013, the widening cracks at Old Trafford have now become full-sized craters. The big quandary is that the Glazer family borrowed a load of money to buy Manchester United in 2004 and shifted debts to the tunes of a billion dollars within 15 years onto the club. Misery is compounded by United announcing record high revenues in the 2010s, which has not really translated into on-pitch success â raising glaring doubts about the ownersâ vision for a club with arguably the richest history in the PL. © MENSXP/Alshaar Gab Marcotti writes for ESPN: âThere's something doubly infuriating in knowing that even while you're suffering at your team's underachievement, the guys who own it and run it continue to cackle all the way to the bank. It's not that they don't necessarily care -- maybe they do, maybe they're fans too; they never speak, so we don't know -- it's just that you're left with the feeling that, however much it pains them to see United struggle on the pitch, when they put on their businessman hats, all that pain magically melts away.â Depressed and feeling an existential sense of defeat, I took the tram back and my day ended in complete contrast to how it had begun. The club that I grew up watching dominate all of Europe has been reduced to a laughing stock and distressingly because of non-footballing reasons. The cityI woke up early next morning to typically gloomy Manchester skies. A septuagenarian gent was making breakfast â atypical of the most such lodgings â a recipe for some interesting conversation. Michael Celle Clarke had spent his young years in Manchester and his rendezvous with the city had stayed with him. Over a cuppa, he shared stories that involved women, odd jobs and finances. Now settled, with grandchildren and great grandchildren, he still finds excuses to visit Manchester, âthe city that has seen so much and has given people so much.â © MENSXP/Alshaar So, what exactly is so special about this city? One of the better ways to find out was to sign up for a walking tour. Most such offerings are usually free â something that I absolutely love about European cities. The reception desk was handing out brochures for this one called the Free Manchester Walking Tour, which starts at 11 am from the Alan Turing Memorial in Sackville Park. On my way to the meeting point, I encountered this tiny, funny-named eatery called Pottyâs Kitchen, where a bunch of local construction workers were walking in and out of. Who knew you could get a fabulous full English breakfast for less than five pounds, with a bunch of pescetarian and vegan options. Quick note: having proper meals helps survive the cityâs windy weather, which suddenly started approaching zero-ish temperatures that morning. View this post on Instagram#Mcr #manchester #uk #2019 #stretphotography #travel #travellovers #love #welcome #home #keeptraveling #bee #documentaryphotography #gayvillage #alanturingA post shared by (@jose_marcilese_iglesias) A few smokes helped stay warm at the Turing Statue, before local lad Mike (25), another lifetime Manchester United supporter, from the Tour team greeted me, followed by around 10 more tourists, from Europe and South America. Aziz Ahammout from Lille was here for the previous nightâs game too, and has grown up supporting United from across borders like yours truly. Leeds-born Charlie Tatman also follows football and had even been to India (he fortuitously ended up playing a British officer in Aamir Khanâs Mangal Pandey: The Rising on the trip), before settling down with his wife and a set of twins. Czech student Laura, who resides in Poland currently, had been flatmates with Indians and of course proclaimed her love for curry with me. The three-hour tour began with a brief timeline of Manchester, through its multiple eras: of the Romans christening it Mamucium; of canals enabling it to become a global textile hub; of the bombing during the Second World War; of the abandonment of the textile mills and the subsequent rise of an underground music culture â notable Manchester musicians include The Smiths, The Verve, Oasis, The Red Army, Van der Graaf Generator among numerous others. Today, Manchester is the second most populous metropolitan area in the United Kingdom with more than three million people. The city bears unique distinctions for establishing a university in as early as the 1820s, producing around 25 Nobel laureates and a host of artists. Alan Turing, whose statue we met at, though remains the most controversially timeless figure. View this post on InstagramReminiscing about the Parade and our Deep Space Pride: A Future World of Equality theme at this year's Manchester Pride Festival! The Parade was by far the biggest to ever walk the streets of Manchester and we cannot thank you enough for coming to support the community, whether you walked with us in the Parade or encouraged us from the crowd! ðð And can we just talk about some of these outfits?! Incredible! #MPFestival2019A post shared by (@manchesterpride) His genius, biographed in Benedict Cumberbatchâs (another University of Manchester graduate) Imitation Games, lies in being the father of modern computing. Even more relevant is his life as one of the first openly gay public figures in the history of the Western world. Despite playing a crucial role in cracking intercepted coded messages that enabled the Allies to defeat the Nazis in many crucial engagements, Turing was prosecuted under Victorian anti-homosexuality laws and is said to have not received enough respect before a premature death (allegedly suicide), at the age of 41. After widespread internet campaigns, he was retrospectively pardoned in 2013 and even features on the new £50 note now. Turing remains an accurate representation of Manchesterâs contribution to liberalism through the ages. Apart from housing the countryâs oldest public library (since 1652), it has also been at the centre of labour right activism in the 1850s, which eventually led to the repeal of the infamous Corn Laws; it has been home to remarkable feminist movements in the 20th century; and it has constantly rallied behind free trade, pacifism and the separation of church and state. In fact, even great men like Abraham Lincoln have written to the âworking men of Manchesterâ for their anti-slavery stance. View this post on Instagramð¸ 2019 has brought us some fantastic photography and illustrations! Here are some of our best ones - which one is your favourite?A post shared by (@officialuom) After walking past the university, the Royal Exchange Theatre, the Town Hall, the Bridgewater Hall, the Rochdale Canal and the library, we finally ended up at the Exchange Square. It was here where, according to our guide Mike, the latest, most modern, era of Manchester was born. A bomb explosion (planted by Irish right-wing militants during the Euro Cup â96; Manchester was one of the host countries) caused devastating and largely irreversible damage, estimated by insurers at £700 million (equivalent to £1.3 billion in 2019). The detonation, according to locals, ripped the heart out of the city centre but remarkably no-one was killed. Contrastingly, the blast has been viewed by some as a 'catalyst' for starting the city's mass regeneration by attracting hundreds of millions worth of investment and resulting in above national average economic growth in the 20 years following the bombing. Manchester received about £583 million in private and public funding towards its regeneration that completely transformed the business sector, the growth of which could have otherwise been much slower. At the 2002 Commonwealth Games, Manchester played proud host and set a worldwide example on how to get back on oneâs feet. View this post on InstagramNice + sunny in Manchester. âï¸A post shared by (@lucyygallagher) Goodbyes were said at this point, but the Man United supporters in the group â Mike, Aziz and I â stayed back and bitched about the previous night. Once Mike left to resume his dayâs routine, we ended up at Sinclairâs Oyester Bar, after a visit to the nearby National Football Museum. The rustic pub is located in one of the oldest buildings in the city, The Shambles. Usage of phones/electronics is strictly banned inside; an attendant is on the vigil at all times. But the upside â besides getting hammered for a mere £15 â is that you tend to initiate conversations with strangers. Manchester serves up to be the perfect city for this kind of socialising, especially if youâre a United fan. Aziz and I ended up befriending almost each table adjacent to ours despite heated debates over Ole Gunnar Solskjærâs future as the boss. Most of these men and women were locals, ranging from ages between 20 and 70. My acquaintance with the city, from two decades of supporting United, was validated by the open arms that the locals offered towards my devotion. It was at this point that I realised what knits the bond between the club and its overseas fans. © MENSXP/Alshaar My girlfriend, a distant observer of the sport, often asks why I donât support another club since Manchester United have been shit most of the 2010s? I couldnât offer a convincing response before visiting Manchester, but I can almost physically feel my connect with the city now. Itâs almost like a home away from home, and in its core value system, also resonates with my most fundamental beliefs in life. Thereâs another club in the city and why I donât support them would require another article. But as I munched on my last kebab before taking off for India, and made peace with the clubâs fall from grace, the city, like few others, didnât make me feel alone as a solo traveller anymore â and despite the heartbreaking recent performances of Manchester United, ensured that I return one day regardless. Although more new signings will help. View the full article
  2. In a country where cricket is considered to be a religion, India equally celebrates its cricketers like demigods. Garnering an unmatched public interest, many cricketers, over the years, including the likes of Sachin Tendulkar, MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli consistently enjoy the limelight. But, while the cricketing icons continue to hog the spotlight, one woman has carved her own niche in the country's beloved sport. For someone who once aspired to be a graphic designer, Myanti Langer has undeniably come a long way to establish herself as one of the most recognisable faces in a sport that continues to be dominated by men. Owing to her unique insights, a great understanding of the game and exceptional analysis, the 34-year-old has managed to create her own fanbase in cricket-crazy India. View this post on InstagramBack in the habit ð #cricketlive #cricketloveA post shared by (@mayantilanger_b) While her ability to analyse the gentleman's game on television has earned her plaudits over the years, Mayanti's 'no-nonsense' approach to set the trolls straight on social media has further struck a chord with cricket fans. For an independent woman who has achieved success and fame on the back of relentless hard work, Mayanti is often targetted for her husband Stuart Binny's brief stint with Team India. Whether her hubby scores a hundred or gets out for a duck, social media trolls just won't let the sports presenter catch a break. Even her normal posts, that has got nothing to do with Stuart, end up garnering baseless comparisons on social media platforms. In the latest case, Mayanti and her husband were once again targeted by a troll who eventually learned a key lesson. Itâs a rather colourful life in our studio ?? @StarSportsIndia #cricketlive #NZvsIND #firevsice pic.twitter.com/ys3pgzPdLS â Mayanti Langer Binny (@MayantiLanger_B) February 4, 2020 Taking to Twitter, Mayanti shared a photo of herself where she was seen striking a pose inside what looked like a studio. "Itâs a rather colourful life in our studio," she tweeted. While many liked her picture in the tweet, a cricket fan posted with a query: "Where is Stuart Binny nowadays???". Where is Stuart Binny nowadays ..??? â Shafqat Yousuf (@shafqaty6) February 4, 2020 In response to the question, another fan joined in and suggested that: "He is helping her in carrying her baggage". While Mayanti generally refrains from engaging with such trolls, she made this one an exception to shut the troll down. I can carry my own baggage thank you very much ?? heâs busy living his life, playing cricket, just being awesome in general, and not passing comments on people he doesnât know ?? â Mayanti Langer Binny (@MayantiLanger_B) February 4, 2020 In what turned out to be a befitting reply, Mayanti didn't just step up for her husband, but eventually managed to shut the troll for good. "I can carry my own baggage thank you very much heâs busy living his life, playing cricket, just being awesome in general, and not passing comments on people he doesnât know," she replied.

  3. Itâs no secret that a lot of our B-Town celebs are ardent fans of some of the most popular cartoons out there. However, the fan following that Pokemon seems to enjoy, be it with us or celebs, is something that no other anime or cartoon has witnessed. © Viral Bhayani Akshay Kumar, who is normally seen in some of the most basic, but classy sneakers one can buy, seems to have finally given in to the temptation of going a little bonkers with quirky footwear, for he was recently spotted wearing a pair of black trainers, that looked like they were straight out of the Japanese Anime series that we all have grown so fond of. © Viral Bhayani First, though, letâs get to his outfit. Akshay is wearing a rather simple and understated black sweatshirt, which actually, works well with the finely checkered joggers that he is wearing. The joggers themselves are actually quite dope, thanks to the mix of the patterns around the knees, and the two zipped pockets that they have. © Viral Bhayani This is actually somewhat unusual for Akshay, who normally tends to stay away from such pieces and prefers wearing basic cargos, or jumpsuits. Well, weâre glad that heâs switching things up a bit and experimenting. © Viral Bhayani Now, comes the pièce de résistance of the ensemble, the black loafers that Akshayâs wearing. They are as zany as they are exquisite. Akshay is seen here wearing the Men's Black Monster Eyes Suede Loafers from Fendi, an Italian luxury fashion brand, which primarily deals in leather and faux pieces. © Fendi The yellow eyes that we see here are a classic Fendi design and are called the Bugs Eye motif. The pieces that these eyes are featured on, are normally labelled under Monster Eyes. The eyes themselves seem to have been inspired by Pokemon. The eyes do look like an evil Pokemon, don't they? © Viral Bhayani To add even more to the âmonsterâ theme, Fendi has added some spikes at the counter or the back of the loafers. Sure, these spikes are small and arenât that outrageous. However, they are quite zany and give the loafers a rather unique dimension. Thatâs actually quite a nice way to amp up a basic and simplistic outfit. © Fendi For someone who prefers functionality and comfort over aesthetics, Akshay sure knows how to surprise people around him. Take a bow, man, seriously, thatâs one heck of a way to make a style statement. View the full article
  4. A few years ago, Shubman Gill was being looked upon as a budding batsman who could potentially realise his dreams of playing for the Indian cricket team. And, by the time India clinched the 2018 U-19 World Cup trophy, Gill, who was eventually adjudged the 'Player of the Tournament', was hailed as a key ingredient to his team's success in the tournament. Upon his success in the U-19 World Cup, many wondered if he had the temperament of repeating his heroics while playing with proven masters of the game. But, Gill, since then, continues to dish out one brilliant performance after another, bolstering his case for selection in the national team. © Twitter/@IPL From turning heads in the Indian Premier League (IPL), earning a national call-up to raking in runs on the domestic circuit, the 20-year-old, in the past year or so, remains one of the most consistent performers in Indian cricket. His consistency in batting and the temperament of a proven batsman has allowed him to capture the imagination of cricket fans. When will @KKRiders make @RealShubmanGill the captain ? #AskSrk â Vivek Subramaniam (@viveks1996) January 22, 2020 And, that's probably why a cricket fan ended up asking Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) co-owner Shah Rukh Khan as to when his franchise will make the young Gill the captain of their team. "When will @KKRiders make @RealShubmanGill the captain?," the fan asked on Twitter. As soon as KKR makes you the Head Coach my friend. https://t.co/1SSCwWLS8E â Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) January 22, 2020 The Bollywood superstar has been vocal about his admiration for Gill in the past, but he came up with a witty response to the query of the fan in his recent interaction, a candid Q&A, on Twitter. Responding to the question in his own uncanny manner, 'King Khan' wrote: "As soon as KKR makes you the Head Coach my friend". As soon as Shah Rukh posted his response, netizens began sharing their own views on the hilarious banter between the Bollywood actor and the poor fan. #SavageReplies ??@Bazmccullum #AskSRK pic.twitter.com/UeDgmSSgCq â KolkataKnightRiders (@KKRiders) January 22, 2020 ??????

  5. Kareena Kapoor irked by fan pestering her for selfiesKareena Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan and Taimur Ali Khan have a colossal fan base comprising several hyped up fans. And while the super famous trio entertain to the requests of fans more often than not, the hyped up devotees do tend to cross the line quite frequently which results in the A-listers getting infuriated. Addressing one such incident, a reporter for the Deccan Chronicle spoke about a female fan, who after getting a selfie urged for more upon her dissatisfaction with the first one. “That lady came in for a picture. Then she again stopped Kareena for another picture. Now Kareena had been stopped twice for selfies. It is not that that lady was taking pictures when Kareena was on the move but had to be stopped. So, when she stopped Kareena for the third time, it wasn’t just Kareena but everyone around her who got upset with the fan and asked her to vamoose,” he said.
  6. A fan reveals her experiences with Adele and Harry StylesOn Adele's and Harry Styles vacation, the pair not only enjoyed themselves, but made the day of a couple of fans who dropped in on them by chance. Lexi Larson was the lucky 19-year-old from Massachusetts, who got the surprise of her lifetime in Anguilla. When the young girl walked towards Blanchards Restaurant and Beach Shack for dinner on January 3, she was mesmerised seeing Harry Styles dining at the table nearby, however the surprise got even better after Adele walked in. The girl reiterated her experience to PEOPLE, stating, “A few minutes later, Adele came over and sat down next to me and my friend and was like, ‘So what can I do for you girls?'” She went on to say, “We were so excited. We were talking to her for a little while, and then she got Harry Styles to come over and sit with us also. We took a picture with Harry, and we talked to them for 15 minutes probably.” The young fan, who is a student of psychology at the Elton University stated that they all “talked about life and college and what me and my friend wanted to do.” “They were more asking us questions,” she revealed. “It was a really positive experience. It was really cool.” Larson revealed that at first her friends and she barely recognized Adele due to her slimmer frame and chiseled features. “She said she lost something like 100 pounds, and that it’s such a crazy positive experience,” she says. “She seemed so happy, and she looked amazing. She seemed really confident.” Larson was able to mark her luckiest day with a picture with Harry Styles, however Adele had to decline the request because she was with her young son and she didn't want the extensive media attention her way, for the sake of her son. “She said no because she didn’t want a lot of paparazzi at the moment or anything to get too crazy with her kid,” Larson recalled.

  7. Bollywood’s emerging queen Sara Ali Khan’s fan left all in shock when he crossed the limits and kissed the hand of the actress. The Simmba actress, who returned to the gym following Maldives visit, was asked for a photoshoot by the paparazzi where one of her fans requested for a handshake. When Sara extended her hand, the man kissed her, leaving the actor in extreme shock. The security guards of Sara threw the man away and retreated the actress's hand. The incident took place after Aaj Kal actor posed for paparazzi following her Pilates session. Sara Ali Khan returned to gym to shed the extra weight she gained during her vacations in Maldives. The actress returned to India after vacationing in Maldives with brother Ibrahim and mother Amrita Singh last week. On the work front, Sara will be seen alongside former beau Kartik Aaryan in Aaj Kal. The film will hit the cinemas on February 14, 2019.
  8. Superstar Mahira Khan on Wednesday sent New Year greetings to her millions of her fans across the globe. Taking to Twitter, the actor prayed for love , joy and tolerance "especially for those whose start and end of the year has remained the same - dark and displaced". Some of the fans insisted for a question and answer (Q & A) session on the beginning of New Year and the actor obliged. During the #AskMahira session, the Raees star responded to multiple questions that ranged from her acting career to what meal she loved to savour the most and to travel destinations she adored. A Twitter user Shahbaz Ali Ask her "Don't you think you should get married again?". "Will do when i feel like doing it," she replied with an Upside-Down Face emoji.

  10. Arguably one of the best cricketers in his playing days, Yuvraj Singh aided Team India on the international stage for almost two decades. While his explosive batting added teeth to the Indian middle-order, his commitment to the game and happy-go-lucky personality continues to make him a fan favourite. After 25yrs in cricket Ive decided to move on. Cricket has given me everythin I have.ThankU 4being a part of this journey.This game taught me how to fight,how to fall,to dust off,to get up again n move forward. It has been a lovely journey. See you on the other side #SteppingOut pic.twitter.com/x3wOhoXcLv — yuvraj singh (@YUVSTRONG12) June 10, 2019 The left-hander might have called time on his international career, but he continues to be associated with teams in competitive leagues across the globe. Currently plying his trade with Maratha Arabians in the Abu Dhabi T10 League, Yuvi has been busy playing a key role in his team's aspirations for the all-important title. But, the star cricketer, as much as his batting display, has garnered plaudits for his light-hearted moments with the Maratha Arabians teammates. Following Arabians' recent win over Team Abu Dhabi, Yuvi 'the prankster' was seen enticing cricket fans after making his teammate Chadwick Walton speak in Punjabi. Nice punjabi bro #ChadwickWalton ð¤£ð¤£ð¤£ð¤£ ðððð oh chal yaar chaliyeððð pic.twitter.com/NHcBImT7cS — yuvraj singh (@YUVSTRONG12) November 18, 2019 In a video shared on Twitter and Instagram, Yuvi and West Indies wicketkeeper-batsman Walton were seen enjoying themselves as they communicated in Punjabi. The former Indian cricketer captioned the video as, "Nice punjabi bro @chadwick59. oh chal yaar chaliye". The hilarious video didn't just strike a chord with cricket fans, but also seemed to evoke some response from Indian cricketers including the likes of Suresh Raina and Praveen Kumar. Responding to Yuvi's post, while Raina couldn't contain his laughter, Kumar wrote, "Hahaha.....jatt power". Impressive !! ð In a couple of games can we expect @DJBravo47 celebrate with a bhangra after a wicket ?? #AalaReAala #MarathaArabians — Maratha Arabians (@MarathaArabians) November 19, 2019 Yuvi's post also drew a response from his team Maratha Arabians who wrote, "Impressive!!

  12. Arguably one of the greatest captains of England, Michael Vaughan, long after retirement, continues to garner great public interest over his insightful match analysis and unmatched knowledge of the gentleman's game. But, every now and then, the former England cricketer's brutally honest comments often draw criticism for fans. And, lately, Vaughan seems to have found a way to ruffle the feathers of Indian cricket fans. His comments on Indian pitches during the Test series against South Africa drew the ire of cricket fans in the country. And, on 14th November, Vaughan's tweet on the Indore pitch, where India and Bangladesh are currently playing the 1st Test, once again had the social media buzzing. This Test Match pitch in India is a belter .... #Justsaying #INDvBAN — Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) November 14, 2019 Taking to Twitter, Vaughan gave his opinion about the Indore pitch, calling it a "belter". "This Test Match pitch in India is a belter....#Justsaying #INDvBAN," he tweeted. Vaughan was probably lauding the ground staff for preparing a competitive, fast-bowling pitch at the Holkar Cricket Stadium which explains why Bangladesh were bundled out for a mere 150 runs as the seam-bowling trio of Mohammed Shami (3-27), Ishant Sharma (2-20) and Umesh Yadav (2-47) made merry in the first innings. Why because it's green and represents a seamer instead of a turner? Expand your mind Vaughn, not every wicket has to represent a white mans pitch.. diverse wickets make test cricket interesting @nikkrishnan #INDvBAN — Anks (@anks1606) November 14, 2019 But, despite Vaughan's intentions, an Indian fan thought the former England captain was being sarcastic while taking a dig at the country's fondness of preparing spin-friendly wickets. In response to Vaughan's tweet, the fan wrote: "Why because it's green and represents a seamer instead of a turner? Expand your mind Vaughn, not every wicket has to represent a white mans pitch.. diverse wickets make test cricket interesting". White mans pitch !!!!!!!! What a strange comment .... Do you not see the diverse nature of the England Cricket team these days !!??? #OnOn https://t.co/cuT67z22t1 — Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) November 14, 2019 Not the one to back down from a fight, Vaughan wasted no time in scripting his response. "White mans pitch !!!!!!!! What a strange comment....Do you not see the diverse nature of the England Cricket team these days!!??? #OnOn," Vaughan responded. Have seen ur tweets re a particular type of wicket that apparently gives credence in the eyes of aussies and the English.. we Indians enjoy the green decks england and SA provide.. but also enjoy the dry turners we get in ind.. diversity is what makes test cricket great! Embrace — Anks (@anks1606) November 14, 2019 Vaughan's response further drew a retort from the Indian fan who explained his stance while urging the England great to embrace "dry turners" as much as the green surfaces in cricket. "Have seen ur tweets re a particular type of wicket that apparently gives credence in the eyes of aussies and the English.. we Indians enjoy the green decks england and SA provide.. but also enjoy the dry turners we get in ind.. diversity is what makes test cricket great! Embrace," the Indian fan tweeted back. The exchange between the two also sparked a great debate on social media. @MichaelVaughan ,don't argue with our 1.3 billion experts,u ought to lose — Moukthik susarla (@MoukthikS) November 14, 2019 Racism at its lowest point as the white race can't say anything about any race and must accept anything any other race says about us — Alan jones (@Alanjons7) November 14, 2019 White men is the mentality for 3rd world and developing countries like India.

  13. The Indian women's cricket team is currently touring the Carribean and are in the middle of a five-match T20I series against Anisa Mohammed's side but the way our players are performing, it feels like a home series. In the first of five matches that took place at the Beausejour Stadium in Gros Islet, Saint Lucia, the Women in Blue found themselves batting first as the Windies decided to bowl first after winning the toss. Making the most of the situation, Indian openers Shafali Verma and Smriti Mandhana went on a rampage and struck their respective half-tons and formed a dominating 143-run partnership in 15.3 overs to give their side a big start. The explosive 15-year-old Shafali Verma scored her maiden half-century in the first T20I against West Indies Women today in St Lucia. Shafali is the youngest Indian ever to score an int'l fiftyðð¾ðð¾ #TeamIndia pic.twitter.com/O2MfVdNBOv — BCCI Women (@BCCIWomen) November 10, 2019 After building a 185-run total for the West Indies players to chase, Indian bowlers took control of the game right from the beginning of their attack with Shikha Pandey scalping Hayley Matthews' wicket in the second over. It wasn't too much struggle for Team India to register their first win of the series as they restricted the Windies batting order to just 101 runs in 20 overs with the loss of nine wickets. #WhileYouWereSleeping India started the T20I series in West Indies with a resounding 84-run win after 15-year-old Shafali Verma blasted her first international fifty Match report: https://t.co/Gu0o87GfPW pic.twitter.com/zh55hsrj3m — The Field (@thefield_in) November 10, 2019 Having said that, the cream of the crop had to be the innings played by the 15-year-old Shafali Verma who struck six boundaries and four maximums while putting up 73 runs on the board in just 49 deliveries. The teenager was so good with her bat that it even caught the attention of the 'voice of Indian cricket', Harsha Bhogle, who couldn't stop praising Verma for her batting prowess. Another star on the horizon for India's women's team. Shafali Verma, only 15, slams 73(49) and a partnership of 143 with @mandhana_smriti in just 14.3 overs. Gearing up well for the #WorldT20 early next year — Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) November 10, 2019 “Another star on the horizon for India's women's team.

Her maiden half-century made her the youngest Indian ever to score an international fifty and got her the well-earned Player of the Match recognition. However, the bigger achievement for the young cricketer has to be the love shown by the fans of Indian cricket: amazing for @smrtii and @shafali and also for @indianwomencricketteam — satyam singh (@satyams10738511) November 10, 2019 Shafali is just 15 !

She should open with @ImRo45 coz men's team will not be able to win icc championship.... — Ashwini Chaudhary (@Ashwini27497556) November 10, 2019 View the full article
  14. Listen up people, here's your feel-good story of the day. A regular visitor of a cloth shop in Andhra Pradesh is a cow. Yep, a cow! In order to escape the hot weather, a stray cow started coming to Sairam Showroom, a shop in Mydukur in the Kadapa district of the state about six months ago, and well, now it has become a daily thing. © Twitter Months ago, the cow came and chose the place for itself, much to the owner and the shop's customers dismay. The first day, they tried to shoo it away out of the shop, but their efforts were unsuccessful. Unbothered, the cow came and sat for about two to three hours before getting up and leaving. And thus, a tradition(?) was born. Talking to Deccan Herald, the shop owner said, "It comes every day and sits under the fan. But if we shut off the fan, it simply walks away. It has never troubled any customer, urinated or soiled the white mattress that covers the floor. It relieves itself only after leaving the store." What a well-behaved cow, I'm truly impressed! There is a shop named saibaba cloth Store in Mydukur town in Kadapa district of Andhra Pradesh. For the last 6-7 months a cow regularly enters into this shop, sits for 2-3 hours under the fan and goes out without causing any nuisence to the shop or customers. ðð@rvaidya2000 pic.twitter.com/DxjNMshKRT — Adarsh Hegde (@adarshhgd) November 5, 2019 The best part is that it has become a selling point for the shop. People started coming in asking for the 'cow shop' and ever since the cow has come into his shop and life, his sales have gone up. People are obviously very impressed with the owner for being so kind. Should appreciate the owner who is allowing it! Great! — V Gopalan (@TheGopalan) November 6, 2019 For sure. The owner is a blessed manð — Vikram.Rauð®ð³ (@vikramr455) November 6, 2019 #blessed Wow..so adorably she sits in this shop. Kudos to the owner who knows how to respect our Gomata.

  15. “Expect the unexpected” is a phrase most of us have heard at some point in our lives, but how often is it that people are actually ready for such an occasion? Almost the entire city of Lucknow was completely unprepared for Sher Khan, a cricket fan from Afghanistan who was in town for his national team's One Day International match against the West Indies. While Rashid Khan's talented but inexperienced squad fell to Kieron Pollard's men after losing by seven wickets, it turns out that it wasn't the best of days for the fan as well. West Indies won the 1st ODI under the captaincy of Kieron Pollard against Afghanistan by 7 wickets. Shai Hope and Roston Chase had a match winning partnership after losing two early wickets and Roston Chse is also the Man of the Match with a fighting score of 94 runs.#bolt pic.twitter.com/kX1f8uEWB8 — BOLT Cricket â¡ (@BoltCricket) November 6, 2019 Khan, who flew down to the City of Nawabs a day ahead of the match, was unable to find himself a place to spend the night in the whole city despite multiple hotels having vacant rooms. According to an ANI report, Khan hopped from hotel to hotel, looking for a place for himself but was refused every single time because of his 8-feet-two-inch tall built. © Twitter Disappointed in the city, a helpless Sher Khan approached the Lucknow Police for help, who took the Kabul resident to Hotel Rajdhani in Naka area and made arrangements for him to spend Tuesday night. However, that wasn't the end of the cricket fan's misery as hundreds of people gathered at the gate of Khan's hotel to get a glimpse of the man. "As many as 200 people have come to see him. He is very disturbed," hotel owner Ranu told ANI on Wednesday. Afraid for the visitor's health and personal space, the Lucknow Police took the initiative to escort him to the Ekana Stadium ahead of the first of three ODIs between the two international teams. The fact that the Lucknow Police managed the situation with such professionalism and made the Afghan visitor feel safe in an unknown city is commendable and deserves respect and recognition. While the entire city gave up on him, it was the police that had the helpless man's back. View the full article
  16. We choose to believe that fairytales don't exist in real life. That fate doesn't undergo a makeover overnight. That miracles are excuses created by optimists who cannot settle for anything less than happy endings. But one woman, born out of the streets, dismantled each one of these beliefs one musical note at a time. The name is Ranu Mondal, the social media sensation from Kolkata who broke the internet in August with her melodious rendition of Lata Mangeshkar's iconic song Ek Pyaar Ka Nagma Hai. She has lived the last few months that looks nothing short of a guardian angel bringing the unimaginable to life. © Instagram/CareerPlusNews Instant publicity and a crazy fan following were just a few things that social media virality showered her with. But it wasn't until Bollywood composer-singer Himesh Reshammiya decided to record a song with Ranu that things blew up to a whole new dimension. Overnight, Ranu Mondal was whisked away from the Ranaghat Railway Station that she called home, given a complete makeover and an album she could call her own! Who said overnight stardom can only be found in fiction? It was Ranu's voice and talent that had first gotten her under the limelight, but it was really her rags to riches story that touched a million hearts in the country. It gave people hope that even a nobody can touch the skies if they've got the talent to power through. © Instagram Thousands of Indians lived their unrealised dreams through this 59-year-old frail woman, who had a voice that literally shook the nation. But here's the deal, humans are flawed by nature. It's a manufacturing defect that really doesn't have an authority to put the blame on. And because each one of us is flawed, Ranu Mondal wasn't spared this misfortune either. Ranu Mondal's fatal flaw turned out to be her expected inability to handle the mass publicity and celebrity status dished out to her in such a short time. Why do we say so? © Twitter/Superstar Singers Well, hours ago a video featuring Ranu Mondal began doing the rounds on social media that shows Ranu getting annoyed at a lady who tapped on her shoulder to call her and probably to also request for a selfie. Ranu has since been bashed on social media left, right and centre for apparently having turned too haughty and high-handed. View this post on Instagram Social | Don't touch me; I'm celebrity now. #ranumondal #Kolkata #Bollywood #bollywoodfashion #bollywoodnews #bollywoodcelebrity #Mumbai #Filmcity #IndianHistoryLive A post shared by Indian History Pictures (@indianhistorylive) on Nov 3, 2019 at 11:32pm PST Some are even claiming that popularity has gotten to her head. But wait, why are we bashing her again? Being a celebrity or a public figure doesn't mean people get to have free access to them as and when they please. Why is Ranu alone being bashed for this incident? Why isn't anyone calling out the lady for not keeping up the basic courtesy of approaching a person and addressing them by their name before stating their request? What's with this attitude that “we made you and therefore you belong to us” to act up as per our whims and fancies? © Idiva What's with this absolute disregard that we show towards people's personal space and the disrespectful way of chasing after things we misjudge as our birthright? No matter what conversation the two of them had, and regardless of whether one is a celebrity or an ordinary human being, acquaintance or even a friend, you do not go around tapping people on the shoulder and state your expectations from them. Before we begin to completely destroy her barely there public image, let us remember that she wasn't completely wrong in expressing her discomfort regarding how she is treated by the public. We might have turned her into a social celebrity but that doesn't give us the authority to think of her as our pawn to hype or berate as and when we feel like. View the full article
  17. "There is no passion to be found playing small - in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living." Nelson Mandela's famous quote is probably the best way to describe Virat Kohli's love affair with cricket. His passion for cricket has made him one of the best batsmen in the world across formats and has further nurtured him into a ruthless captain. It's also that very passion that defines Kohli's emotional, effervescent and, at times, explosive character. For him, the world is for the taking and his hunger to succeed has propelled him to the pinnacle of the sport. © Reuters While the world of cricket, over the years, has witnessed numerous stars rising through the ranks to eventually capture the imagination of fans as demigods, Kohli, in his own unique way, remains a sports icon of a different breed. His batting records highlight how good he has been with the willow. And, with Team India scaling new heights under his tutelage, Kohli's reputation as a leader continues to grow. But, it isn't just his exploits on the field that makes Kohli a fan-favourite. In fact, it's his approach towards life, in general, that makes truly him a befitting role model for the youth. #HappyBirthdayViratKohli Run machine ð¥ Best batsman in the world ð Attitude ð¥ Reason why i still watch Cricket â¤ï¸ Champion ð@imVkohli Wishing you a very happy birthday ð¥ pic.twitter.com/174pT3fbzo — Siddharthâ (@TheNameIsSiddu) November 5, 2019 On 5th November, as he celebrates his 31st birthday, Kohli has come a long way, from once being labelled as brash and boorish, to become a master batsman, an astute leader and one of the country's prized possessions. But, the hunger and will of this supreme competitor to succeed and consistently improve himself hasn't died down. My journey and life's lessons explained to a 15-year old me. Well, I tried my best writing this down. Do give it a read. ð #NoteToSelf pic.twitter.com/qwoEiknBvA — Virat Kohli (@imVkohli) November 5, 2019 While the cricket fraternity and his millions of fans were busy wishing him on his special day, Kohli penned down an emotional letter to his 15-year-old self. Taking to Twitter, Kohli shared the heartfelt letter, full of his 'life's lessons', with a caption that read: "My journey and life's lessons explained to a 15-year old me. Well, I tried my best writing this down. Do give it a read. ?? #NoteToSelf". The handwritten note, addressed to Kohli's 15-year-old version, began with a simple birthday wish. Anticipating that his younger self will have a lot of questions about the future, the Indian captain refrained from answering too many of them, ensuring he doesn't kill the surprise element. He does give a hint of what the future holds for Kohli's younger self by claiming the journey to be "SUPER". © Reuters Reiterating on the big things that life has in store, the Indian captain urged his younger self to be ready and make the most of each and every opportunity that comes along. He further advised his younger version to never take things for granted. And, even when failure comes calling, Kohli sought a promise from his younger self to keep trying irrespective of the hate and criticism that might come along. From displaying his commitment to the gentleman's game by turning up at the Feroz Shah Kotla despite losing his father on the same day to dedicating his life to fitness in a bid to find the best version of himself to succeed, Kohli, over the years, has emerged as an emotional, yet a self-aware, character who continues to redefine the stereotypes associated with a popular icon or a role model. His emotional letter, on the eve of his birthday to his younger self, shows his steely determination and winning spirit that has become the hallmark of his illustrious cricket career. It also shows that Kohli is in a league of his own, fighting unceasing battles against his own expectations every day. And, to actually become a man that was better than the one yesterday.

  18. Both Bhartiya Janata Party and Shiv Sena are currently deciding who should take over the seat of Chief Minister of Maharashta. In the meantime, a fan on Twitter suggested Anil Kapoor should be the new Chief Minister of Maharashtra till the time there's no one to take over. He wrote, "Maharashtra mein jab tak koi rasta nahi nikalta, tab tak anil kapoor ko hi mukhyamantri bana kar dekh lete hain. Parde par unka ek din ka karyalay poore desh ne dekha aur saraha hai. Devendra Fadnavis aur Aaditya Thackeray kya soch rahe hai?" (Until we reach a solution for Maharashtra, why not make Anil Kapoor the Chief Minister? Everyone watched and loved his one-day session on the big screen. What say Devendra Fadnavis, Aditya Thackeray?) Anil Kapoor's response to this fan's tweet was surely epic. Recalling his 2001 film Nayak wherein he became the CM for a day, the actor wrote, “Main Nayak hi theek hu. (I'm better off as an actor)." Well, this clearly indicates that he has no interest in joining politics for that matter. Check out the tweet here: मà¥à¤ nayak हॠà¤à¥à¤ हà¥à¤ ð@vijaymau https://t.co/zs7OPYEvCP — Anil Kapoor (@AnilKapoor) October 31, 2019 In the movie, Anil played a television journalist who is challenged by the sitting chief minister to take over the seat for a day.

  19. Ever since her debut album The Fame, Lady Gaga has amassed a pretty rampant fan following, and hasn't been shy about giving back to her fanbase. This took a rather unfortunate turn during her Vegas show last night - where she crashed into the audience along with a fan who was holding her. Lady Gaga and a fan suffered a major fall at #Enigma tonight! ð± pic.twitter.com/3YplZSUHIG — The Pop Hub (@ThePopHub) 18 October 2019 Reportedly, Gaga had invited this particular fan, named Jack, to join her onstage - a common occurrence at most of her performances.

The BBC quoted her saying, "It's amazing. We love each other so much we fell off the damn stage. We fell into each other's arms. We're like Jack and Rose from Titanic. I suppose we should have some tea after that." She even consoled Jack after the accident saying, "Don't worry, everything's fine. It's not your fault." She added, "Could you promise me something? Could you forgive yourself right now for what just happened?" - also pointing out that everyone on the internet should refrain from bullying or teasing him over the matter. Soon enough, she went right back into her performance, busting out a routine to one of her most popular songs, Bad Romance. Lady Gaga fell off the stage and then proceeded to kill the Bad Romance choreography like nothing ever happened. The level of professionalism... far too much! pic.twitter.com/X6EFxhlGIL — Lady Gaga Facts (@LGMonsterFacts) 18 October 2019 The incident occurred just days after Gaga blew up on Twitter for her Fortnite post.

He made his way up in the world of Hindi rapping and is currently an inspiration for many youngsters in the country who dream big, despite not having much. With a plethora of admirers running after him and rooting for him, there is one particular fan of Divine who has rooted for him since he began his journey and it's none other than his mother. Divine recently shared a video of his mother cheering and dancing her heart out at his concert, proving that mothers are indeed our biggest cheerleaders.

  21. Since Sunday, there are primarily two things that Indians are talking about - first, how India defeated Pakistan by 89 runs, in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup, and second, Ranveer Singh. From giving major fashion goals, trying his hands at commentary to clicking pictures with Virat Kohli, Sachin Tendulkar, Harbhajan Singh, Sourav Ganguly, Virender Sehwag, Hardik Pandya, K L Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan, Ranveer made sure that he makes the most out of his England trip.

While both Indian and Pakistani cricket fans were busy trolling the Pakistan Cricket team for their disappointing performance in England, there was one fan who was left disheartened by this loss. Ranveer consoled him and that video is now going viral on social media. Ranveer, in the video, hugs the fan and tells him, "There is always a next time. Don't be disheartened, they played well, they are committed, dedicated professionals and they will be back." View this post on Instagram #ranveersingh with a Pakistani fan.

Directed by Kabir Khan, the movie is expected to release in 2020.
  22. We've already seen a couple of gaming phones from the likes of ASUS, Black Shark, etc. in India. And now, the Chinese smartphone maker Nubia has also launched the new Red Magic 3 gaming phone in the country. The Nubia Red Magic 3 has a lot going for it like an internal cooling, flagship specifications like Snapdragon 855 SoC, and more. Well, here's everything that you need to know about this phone. © Nubia The Nubia Red Magic 3, just like the OnePlus 7 Pro, sports a 90Hz 6.65-inch FHD+ panel with support for HDR. As mentioned earlier, the phone is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 SoC and it comes with up to 12GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. The Red Magic 3 also has an Adreno 640GPU to take care of the graphics side of things. The Nubia Red Magic 3 is also the world's first smartphone to sport an internal cooling fan. Yes, this particular phone, regardless of the variant you buy, comes with a cooling fan to keep things nice and cool while you're gaming. In addition to a cooling fan, the phone also takes advantage of the liquid cooling system. © YouTube Yes, it sounds like overkill, but there's no such thing as 'too much' power when it comes to anything related to gaming, and we're glad that Nubia has decided to pack this phone with all these features. The internals of the Red Magic 3 will be kept powered by a 5,000 mAh battery with support for 27W quick charging, just like the Black Shark 2. In terms of the optics, the Red Magic 3 sports a 48MP Sony IMX 586 at the back, and there's a 16MP selfie shooter on the front. The phone is also said to be capable of recording 8K videos and we're sure the cooling fan will come handy in such cases. Other noteworthy specs of the phone include shoulder buttons for gaming and front-facing stereo speakers for an immersive media consumption experience. Pricing & Availability The Nubia Red Magic 3 will be available exclusively through Flipkart. The Red Magic 3 starts at Rs 35,999 for the base variant and it goes all the way up to Rs 46,999 for the high-end variant with 12GB RAM and 256GB storage.
  23. It has been less than a day since the ICC World Cup 2019 matchup between India and Pakistan took place at Old Trafford in Manchester, and the level of attention the game has received ever since has been out of control. So, we will go through a quick recap before talking about the main story: Indian opener Rohit Sharma scored his fastest ODI century. Virat Kohli became the fastest cricket to score 11,000 ODI runs, Vijay Shankar took a wicket on his first Cricket World Cup delivery, Sarfaraz Ahmed yawned multiple times during the game, and Virat Kohli declared himself out even when he was not! #ViratKohli scores his 11,000th ODI run! He reaches the landmark in 54 fewer innings than anyone else ðpic.twitter.com/mebDOLJESs — Cricket World Cup (@cricketworldcup) June 16, 2019 Oh, and the Men in Blue defeated the Men in Green again, taking their World Cup record against the neighbouring cricketing rivals to 7-0 wins. Now that you are up to speed, let's talk about this young fan of Pakistan cricket who visited Old Trafford to experience the legendary rivalry that India versus Pakistan was hyped to be, keeping in mind the brilliant encounters the two teams have had in the past. However, instead of watching the game of his life that he had expected, the fan got to witness a one-sided game which was dominated by Virat Kohli's men through and through. Losing the match by a massive 89-run margin, despite the Duckworth–Lewis–Stern (DLS method) with veteran batsmen like Shoaib Malik and Sarfaraz Ahmed getting dismissed for cheap at the hands of fierce Indian bowlers, absolutely broke the Pak support's heart. Here's what the poor guy had to say: Essentially, what the young lad is trying to say it that even though the Pakistani supporters love the team, being dominated by Team India like that was extremely frustrating to watch. The fan complains about the clear lack of fitness and lethargy that adversely affected Pakistan's performance. He feels that the Pakistani cricketers do not take health and fitness seriously and are irregular about their diet. As much as our heart goes out to the guy, him venting out his frustration like that is hilarious!
