  1. 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. View this post on Instagram COME ON INDIA, COME ON !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ð®ð³ð®ð³ð®ð³ð®ð³ð®ð³ð®ð³ð®ð³ð®ð³ð®ð³ð®ð³ð®ð³ð®ð³ð®ð³ð®ð³ð®ð³ð®ð³ð®ð³ð®ð³ð®ð³ð®ð³ð®ð³ @starsportsindia @icc @cricketworldcup A post shared by Ranveer Singh (@ranveersingh) on Jun 17, 2019 at 2:39pm PDT But, apart from encouraging and cheering for the team, Ranveer also displayed great sportsmanship when he consoled an upset Pakistani fan. 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. He is so sweet ð⤠A post shared by Viral Bhayani (@viralbhayani) on Jun 17, 2019 at 10:00pm PDT On the work front, Ranveer is currently busy with '83, where he will play the role of Kapil Dev and Deepika Padukone will be playing Kapil Dev's wife Romi in the film. Directed by Kabir Khan, the movie is expected to release in 2020.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!

  5. The year was 2018, when suddenly this one rugged looking man, with a chiselled face and olive skin, started grabbing eyeballs every time he graced the screens. It was more than his looks though (well quite honestly, his simple features and boy-next-door vibes did wonders too), people were intrigued by this actor who was seen portraying different characters each time, each distinct, and better than the last. © Twitter Vicky Kaushal was finally here, and what an entry it had been. Women swooned over the chivalrous Iqbal Syed in 'Raazi', while others sought friends like Kamlesh in 'Sanju' and a lover as fun and easy-going as Vicky in 'Manmarziyaan'. However, it is 2019 that witnessed Vicky Kaushal's greatest arrival and how! Vicky's 'Uri' broke multiple industry records and put him right at the top in Bollywood. © Twitter He is currently one of the busiest and most sought after stars in the Hindi film industry and there's no guessing why. Directors love him, but his fans are absolute nuts over this guy. © Reuters Yet, all this success, popularity and fame hasn't gotten into his head one bit. And fans love him for being so rooted and humble at all times. Take, for instance, this recent Twitter exchange between Vicky and one of his fans. © Twitter The fan tweeted, saying: @vickykaushal09 my wifey saw you today in the jam jam cafe, was sitting next to your table but too shy to come up and talk. And thought that privacy should be given to the stars. I am saying hi ð on her behalf and we really love your acting. Take care!! — KapilArtistry (@ArtistryKapil) June 12, 2019 Vicky decided to respond to this honest admission and message, and tweeted to Kapil. Pass my regards. I appreciate her for respecting my privacy. Next time, feel free, I'd be happy to have a conversation :) https://t.co/4Si2zSUpaV — Vicky Kaushal (@vickykaushal09) June 12, 2019 Not only was that a wonderful gesture on Vicky's part, but his thoughtfulness in suggesting that they introduce themselves the next time is truly heartwarming. Fellow fans cannot seem to get over his humility either.

  6. Kartik Aaryan may have started small in the industry, but the man has now broken all the stereotypes of an outsider not making a mark in Bollywood, and has established himself as a superstar. Kartik became the national crush just after his debut with 'Pyaar Ka Punchnama' and from that point on, there was no stopping him. The star is basking right now in his much-deserved glory after the success of his films like 'Luka Chuppi', 'Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety' and 'Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2'. He has gained popularity amongst the youth as well as family audiences and this is why he has become the go-to actor for even the popular brands. Kartik was much appreciated for his role in 'Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety' and the songs from the movie were at the top of everyone's party playlists. And now, looks like Kartik has found a new fan, courtesy his song 'Bom Diggy Diggy'. His song has got the attention of our Desi Girl's hubby Nick Jonas, who has now become Kartik's fan. We wonder how would Kartik react to this rather interesting development. It will be interesting to see Nick grooving with Kartik to this song. Considering Nick himself is a sensation in the music space, it's totally an achievement for Kartik. View this post on Instagram Priyanka's fans are everywhere & she's so loved worldwide!! Desi Girl & lal dupatta always gonna remain iconic. Also Nick's fav bollywood songs are "bom diggy" & "desi girl" ⤠A post shared by i love you Priyanka Chopra ðð§ð© (@priyankachopra.updates) on Jun 6, 2019 at 9:49am PDT Kartik has a huge fan following in India but now, we can say that he has surely managed to spread his wings and is getting popular beyond the border as well. Recently, on a chat show, Kartik revealed that his journey in Bollywood has been full of struggles and it wasn't a cakewalk. "There have been situations in my life where I thought that it's not working out. During my struggling days also, I used to think, 'I don't know what's going to happen.' Because there is no particular way ki yeh film mujhe mil payegi ya first film bhi milegi ki nahi kabhi life mein. 'What am I going to do if it doesn't happen?'" he said.

  7. Ranveer Singh has always been humble when it comes to his ardent fans and has never shied away from expressing his gratitude for their love and admiration. Always obliging his fans with selfies and even hugs, Ranveer has garnered a huge fan base across the country. In a saddening development, an ardent fan of the 'Padmaavat' star, Jatin Dulera, breathed his last yesterday, as he reportedly collapsed in his bathroom and stopped breathing. The news of Jatin's death started making rounds on social media, as a post on Instagram said, “Gone too soon, bro. An ardent #ranveersingh fan #JatinDulera died today out of a sudden accident. He was just getting ready to go to the office and collapsed in his bathroom as his breathing stopped." Jatin's funeral was held at Shivaji Park in Mumbai and around 700 of his friends came to pay their last respects. View this post on Instagram Gone too soon bro ð. An ardent #ranveersingh fan #JatinDulera died today out of a sudden accident. He was just getting ready to go to office and collapsed in his bathroom as his breathing stopped. Jatin was happy teen who was not into any bad habbits whatsoever. He had lost his father at a very early age and has two younger siblings. His mom works in a government firm and he worked in the building where #farhanakhtar has his office in bandra. One of my followers, he often tipped me about celebs whereabouts and sometimes even contributed videos to me but never wanted me to credit him. He also had asked me if he could join me. His funeral took place at Shivaji Park where around 700 friends of his turned up. Keep smiling Jatin like you always did, we will miss you #rip @iamjatin_753 A post shared by Viral Bhayani (@viralbhayani) on Jun 10, 2019 at 10:34am PDT As soon as Ranveer got to know of Jatin's sudden demise, he took to Instagram to share a collage of photos with his fan and captioned it, "RIP li'l homie". Pictures of Jatin and Ranveer have been going viral on social media. Not just Ranveer, Jatin's photos with Salman Khan and Priyanka Chopra have also surfaced online, as he was a big fan of theirs as well. Check out the collage of photos shared by Ranveer: © Ranveer Singh Instagram On the professional front, Ranveer is currently focusing on his upcoming film, '83. The film is scheduled to hit the theatres on 10 April 2020. Ranveer is leaving no stone unturned to get into the shoes of Kapil Dev. The film revolves around India's historic victory at 1983 World Cup against West Indies.
  8. One of the most pragmatic captains and skilful batsmen of his time, Michael Vaughan remains a fan-favourite long after his retirement from international cricket. Not one to shy away from speaking his mind, the former England captain has established himself as one of the most respected voices in the sport. From his informative match analysis to honest reviews, Vaughan continues to garner public interest on social media. With the ICC World Cup currently underway, Vaughan is quite busy expressing his views on players, teams and notable performances in the tournament. During India's six-wicket triumph over South Africa at the Rose Bowl on 5th June, the England veteran labelled Kedar Jadhav as his "new favourite bowler". Kedar Jadhav is my new favourite bowler .... !! — Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) June 5, 2019 Clearly, there was a touch of sarcasm in Vaughan's remark. Jadhav, a batting all-rounder, was used by Virat Kohli as a sixth bowler to get some overs in quickly. And, given his role, Jadhav did alright, conceding 16 runs from four overs without any wicket to his name. Calling Jadhav his new favourite bowler was more of a dig than praise by Vaughan - something that didn't go down well with one particular Indian fan. Typical English ex-player-turned-expert. Even the best of them (Vaughan isn't one of them) only follow non-England players when they play in England, and even if they've played there before, they react like they're watching them for the first time, often with condescension. https://t.co/LEUTVJHpV6 — Karthik Krishnaswamy (@the_kk) June 5, 2019 Responding to Vaughan's tweet, an Indian fan called the former England cricketer a “typical ex-player-turned-expert” who wasn't among the best produced by England over the years. "Typical English ex-player-turned-expert. Even the best of them (Vaughan isn't one of them) only follow non-England players when they play in England, and even if they've played there before, they react like they're watching them for the first time, often with condescension," the Indian fan tweeted. Oh shut up you idiot .... https://t.co/G51VgQfdmp — Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) June 5, 2019 Called out for his remarks, Vaughan lashed out at the Indian cricket fan before tweeting: "Oh shut up you idiot". Vaughan's feisty response got mixed reactions on social media. While some slammed his remarks, others lauded him for making the right noise. Don't cry ð — Happyð®ð³ (@Cricketician_) June 5, 2019 Kudos to you Micheal for making the right noises, knowing full well it'd awaken the zombies. Takes guts! Seriously, well done. ð — Lakshmanan (@Suresh_ame) June 5, 2019 Truth hurts!!!! — Saurabh (@SteynGun_) June 5, 2019 They're just attention seekers, don't give your time to them! — Setu Purohit (@SETU30) June 5, 2019 Well done there is a saying Donkey can't understand the smell of camphor... This guy no different — SathyaRam (@sathyaram) June 5, 2019 Good reply!! — Karuna prakash (@Prakash92802815) June 5, 2019
  9. The ICC World Cup 2019 begins in less than a week and fans from all over the world have begun to touch base on the English soil to watch some of their favourite cricketers take on each other in the quest for the greatest honour in the world of the sport, the World Cup trophy, which currently rests with Aaron Finch's Team Australia. In what has come to become more of a ritual than a rivalry between the neighbouring cricketing giants in India and Pakistan, the sledging between the fans from either countries has already begun. Chants of “Mauka Mauka” for example are on the rise yet again. Eagerly awaiting #MaukaMauka series during the #ICCWorldCup2019 @StarSportsIndia @cricketworldcup — Aditya Dharmadhikari (@AddyDharma) May 23, 2019 Having said that, there also exists a feeling of mutual respect and love amongst the people from both the countries for the players who albeit wear different jerseys, are considered the best in the business due to their superhuman efforts in the field through the years. One such fan from Pakistan, namely Shehzad Ul-Hassan, decided to show his affection for the former Indian skipper and veteran wicketkeeper-batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni by engraving the athlete's name on a green Pakistani jersey. Thankyou @TPLUS for making my day... ðð@msdhoni pic.twitter.com/nsscagDLWw — Shehzad-Ul-Hassan (@shehzad441) May 23, 2019 Such gestures only suggest that regardless of whatever turmoils the two nations share on the political front, there is good in the common people like you and I, who rise above hate to appreciate greatness in the game that we love, regardless of the colours that the athletes wear on their uniform. As soon as Ul-Hassan uploaded this image online, MS Dhoni fans from both the countries took to Twitter to show their appreciation towards his stance: COUNTRY CHANGES BUT THE LOVE OF THALA DOESN'T CHANGE I LOVE YOU SO MUCH THALA — MOHAMMED IBRAHIM (@MOHAMME92244625) May 24, 2019 Cricket Has been beyond boundaries !!! MSD & Virat have a Huge Fans base in Pakistan !!! Great Sportsmans to grace the game of cricket !!! Peace N love always first !!! — à¤à¤¤à¤¿à¤« Aatif عاط٠(@meaatee) May 24, 2019 Countries knew no boundaries to love #MSD! #ForeverMSDian — B.Sharon (@BSharan1) May 24, 2019 MSD is a very unique person who rose up the ranks. That's the reason why we from CSK shower him so much of love to this cricketing living legend. Hats off to you bro for sporting dhoni jersey. — C R SHANKAR (@CRSHANKAR3) May 25, 2019 Bhai un logo kya pta hum pakistani Ms dhoni ko kitne chahte hain. #LovesFromPakistan ðµð° — Msd/Arijit/Muntashirâ (@itx_thakursahab) May 24, 2019 Although, the Men in Blue have had the upper hand against Team Pakistan when it comes to World Cup duels, as they have one every single game, the level of excitement throughout the stadium never seems to dim even a little whenever these titans clash. India and Pakistan are scheduled to lock horns on 16th June 2019.
  10. Over the years, the world of cricket has enthralled fans with numerous competitions. From day-night Tests to the advent of T20 cricket, the sport continues to thrive with its continuous evolution to cater to the ever-increasing fan-following. But, amongst the multiple events that cricket has to offer, nothing comes close to the fanfare or popularity of the ICC World Cup. One of the highly-anticipated sporting events in the world, the quadrennial cricket event garners public interest and captures the imagination of enthusiasts like no other. Four years after the first-ever ODI match was played, the organisers blessed the cricket fans with the maiden World Cup that was held in England in 1975. Since then, there has been no turning back for this mega event. And, this year's tourney promises to be no different. © Reuters Slated to begin from 30th May, the twelfth edition of the ICC spectacle promises to be an exciting affair with the participating nations vying for cricket's biggest honour. The mother of all tournaments (as one might call it), this year's World Cup will witness 10 teams competing in a single group. Each team will play with the other nine sides once, and the top four at the end of the group stage will progress to the semifinals. With the World Cup just 10 days away, cricket fans have already begun pledging their allegiances to their favourite teams. From casual banter in the office to heated dinners at home, the World Cup is undoubtedly the hottest topic at the moment. But, as we count down the days for this year's ICC spectacle, here's a look at some crazy records that stand tall at the World Cup: Most Individual Runs © Reuters No player has scored more runs at the Cricket World Cup than Sachin Tendulkar; or even come close for that matter. He scored 2,278 runs at the tournament – more than 500 more than his nearest rival – at an average of 56.95. His highest score at the World Cup came against Namibia in 2003 when he hit 152, but it was his runs in the 2011 World Cup which inspired India to glory. India will be hoping the likes of Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli can emulate the Little Master in England & Wales this year. Most Wickets © Reuters Glenn McGrath lifted the coveted trophy three times and took more wickets than anyone else in the history of the tournament; it's fair to say that the Aussie great had a huge impact at the ICC World Cup. Between his debut at the tournament in 1996 and his final appearance in 2007, McGrath claimed 71 wickets in 39 games. He may have been nearing the end of his career, but his most prolific World Cup came in 2007 where he took 26 wickets - a tournament-best tally for most wickets at a single edition of the World Cup. Most Sixes © Reuters There is no surprise to see the record for the most sixes slammed at a World Cup being shared by swashbuckling AB de Villiers and marauding Chris Gayle. Gayle hit 26 of these sixes in the last World Cup in 2015, most of which were scored in his record-breaking innings against Zimbabwe. With AB de Villiers announcing his retirement in 2018, it has provided Gayle with the opportunity to go past his South African counterpart in this year's World Cup. Most Wickets In Consecutive Balls © Reuters Lasith Malinga could very well be playing his last World Cup this year, but, when he retires, the Sri Lankan great would surely be proud of his legacy at the mega event. Amongst his numerous records in international cricket, Malinga's devastating spell against South Africa at the 2007 World Cup remains one of our fondest memories of the right-arm seamer. One of the all-time classic World Cup matches, the clash between Sri Lanka and South Africa saw Malinga running through the Proteas batting order. Cruising to victory, the Proteas were just four runs away from beating the Lankans when Malinga set a new World Cup record with 4 wickets in 4 balls. While South Africa managed to hold their nerve and won the match, Malinga's fiery spell undoubtedly won hearts across the globe. Fastest Double Hundred © Reuters West Indies opener Chris Gayle hit the fastest double century in World Cup history in their victory over Zimbabwe in 2015. Gayle went on to hit a total of 16 sixes in 147 balls before he was out for 215 off the last delivery of his side's innings. The stand of 372 with Marlon Samuels was also a record partnership for any ODI wicket. West Indies amassed 372-2 from their 50 overs, and went on to beat Zimbabwe by 73 runs (D/L). Highest Team Score © Reuters At the 2015 Cricket World Cup, Australia produced a stunning performance to thrash Afghanistan in a record-breaking game. Glenn Maxwell smashed 88 from 45 balls to propel Australia to 417/6 - the highest team score at a World Cup. Other records tumbled, as Australia then went on to bowl Afghanistan out for just 142 in reply. The margin of victory was 275 runs – the highest ever recorded at a World Cup. Highest Successful Run-Chase © Reuters Another classic World Cup encounter came to the fore when England locked horns with minnows Ireland at the 2011 World Cup. Kevin O'Brien hit the fastest century in Cricket World Cup history as Ireland pulled off an astonishing victory over England in Bangalore. His 113 off 63 balls helped Ireland recover from 111-5 to overhaul the target of 328 runs with five balls to spare, making this the highest successful run-chase ever at a World Cup. Most Title Wins © Reuters Last, but surely not the least. Australia doesn't have a challenger when it comes to their rich history at the World Cup. In the 11 World Cups held so far, they have won the tournament on 5 occasions – including three consecutive wins between 1999-2007. They also hold the World Cup record for most match wins (62) and the highest win percentage of 75 per cent. Despite the recent controversy surrounding the reigning champions, they will go into this year's tournament with confidence in the knowledge that history is on their side.
  11. The PUBG craze made its way into this world one fine day, and our world ceased to exist as we knew it. All it took was one game, and we were left ensnared by the completely mind-blowing game that it is. However, recently, one Gurgaon dude took his PUBG fancy to new levels by scripting a PUBG-inspired advertisement looking for a potential flatmate in a posh Gurgaon locality. True, we look at numerous factors before deciding to move into a few flat, more so if it's a flat where you will be living with four or five other strangers. (c) Facebook Not only did the facilities and the offer catch people's attention with this ad, but people were also thoroughly impressed with how the guy had incorporated elements of PUBG into the advertisement, making it an instant hit with the players. Posted on a FB group called 'Flat and Flatmates', the dude listed out a number of crucial details for a potential flatmate calling their home the 'Battleground' and stating that there are no restrictions (such as muting the audio) for anyone looking to move-in. (c) PUBG People, especially gamers and fans, have responded positively to the creative ad. People have even gone on to call it one of the best ads on the group. What an innovative way of exploring the PUBG fever. We'd sure want to check out the place. What about you?
  12. There were certain deaths in episode 5, Season 8 of 'Game of Thrones' that didn't make much sense to us, to be honest. For instance, after so many theories spiralling out of control over Cersei's death, she eventually died when the Red Keep structure fell on her and Jaime. Which is a little problematic because you don't build a character arc with so much tenacity and make it fall flat on its face (quite literally) towards the end. © HBO Although both of them were shown holding each other and dying, some ardent fans feel Jaime Lannister might be alive, still and will come back in the last episode. The fan that made this prediction, backed it up with some logical evidence and believe it or not, it really does make sense. © HBO A user on Tumblr, 'WeedsAreFlowersToo', put together a pretty compelling case about how the 'Kingslayer' could still be alive. She was rather sad about his death at first but the more she delved into facts, the more sense it made to us. First off, she said, none of the cast members really wrote a 'goodbye piece' for Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, aka Ser Jaime Lannister. If you check out Instagram posts from the cast members of GoT, you will see each one of them has written a beautiful eulogy of sorts for the characters who've died, especially the ones they've worked with closely. But there was nothing for Nikolaj, from anyone. Especially Cersei, who has spent a maximum amount of screen-time with him. Even Nik didn't acknowledge the death of his character, someone he's played, for the past 8 years of his life! Here's what the Tumblr user said: "Why isn't ANYONE acknowledging that Jaime Lannister just died??? Why is nobody in the cast thanking Nik for his performance? Why did Pilou (Euron Greyjoy) and Lena's (Cersei Lannister) insta post not say anything about Jaime dying? Why isn't Nik saying anything about what he thinks of the scene? Why did he make a post saying goodbye to Lena, and not to the character he played for 8 years? Why is there no talk of Jaime's death in the game revealed?" Right? Makes a little bit of sense doesn't it. That's not all though. Here's Nik's post after the 5th episode: View this post on Instagram The best, sweetest most wonderful sister from another mother @iamlenaheadey . That was a fun decade ð A post shared by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (@nikolajwilliamcw) on May 13, 2019 at 4:34pm PDT He just goes on to say Cersei was the sweetest sister from another mother and nothing else. Here's Lena's post for Jaime. No goodbye whatsoever! View this post on Instagram When @nikolajwilliamcw and I wore jellyfish ... I fucking love you ya big weirdo ðððð A post shared by Lena Headey (@iamlenaheadey) on May 13, 2019 at 11:33pm PDT This is Lena's post for Nathalia aka Missandei, when she dies in the show: View this post on Instagram Beautiful @nathalieemmanuel You represented hope and true strength. I didn't like that day up there ð¥°ð¥°ð¥°ð¥°ð¥° A post shared by Lena Headey (@iamlenaheadey) on May 13, 2019 at 11:23pm PDT See the difference? Alright, not convinced? The user's next piece of evidence has something to do with a writer from Entertainment Weekly. James Hibberd has been doing exit interviews with most cast members who've died in Season 8 of the show. He did one with Rory McCann aka The Hound and one with Lena Headey, aka Cersei Lannister. When someone asked about an exit interview with Nikolaj, here's what he had to say: Thanks! Holding that one for a bit... — James Hibberd (@JamesHibberd) 14 May 2019 That's rather strange. Why has he kept supposed dead Jaime's interview on hold? "Apparently James Hibberd [the EW editor] also said there was a character he was surprised to see alive in episode 6. I don't think there is any other character at this point that we would be shocked to see alive except Jaime. Prove me wrong." WeedsAreFlowersToo added. She also pointed out another interesting fact. Gwendoline Christie, the actress who plays Brienne of Tarth, didn't say anything when Jaime died, anywhere on social media, which is weird because they've had some rather intense scenes together since Season 3! She did put a throwback picture of him on Instagram, but didn't write anything about his death, or bid him adieu! View this post on Instagram HAPPIER TIMES. 2014. @nikolajwilliamcw ðâï¸ @gameofthrones A post shared by Gwendoline Christie (@gwendolineuniverse) on May 6, 2019 at 2:28pm PDT Either, we're absolutely desperate for an important character to come back alive and give us closure for all that writing gone bad or all these facts really do amount to something interesting. But if he does come back, it'll be the most crazy and absurd character revival ever. Imagine walking back into the show with a couple of stab wounds and an entire structure falling on you! Can't wait to see how it unfolds on 20th May, 2019!
  13. The popular and intensely mind-boggling Netflix show 'Black Mirror' returns with its much-anticipated fifth season on June 5th, 2019, which is about less than a month away. Although we can't wait to watch what unfolds this season, we still remember the episodes that played with the very fabric of our minds, making us believe the future is rather experimentative, dark and intensely bleak! Technology would have skipped a million beats in the next few years and it's all being projected through this incredible semi-fictional show. © Netflix 'Black Mirror', for me has changed how I'd like to look at technology, the future, privacy and the world in a completely new way and as I look forward to the brand new season, I can't help but reminisce over some crazy episodes from the past seasons that actually made me go what the f***!! © Netflix So, I am going to lay out some of my favourite episodes from 'Black Mirror' and if you haven't seen them or have and don't remember, it's time to watch them again, obviously before June 5th. (1) White Bear © Netflix This episode literally blew my mind. It's literal because I couldn't really get over how unusual and twisted punishing someone for a crime can be, in the near future and, of course, while you're on that subject you can't help but think of implementing this form of punishment for all the rapists out there. Come on, I am sure you've had that debate after watching this episode! Or do you have no idea of what I am talking about? Watch the episode! Watch the trailer here (2) The Waldo Moment © Netflix I believe politics is a farce to keep people busy from contemplating absolute anarchy, and this episode of 'Black Mirror' is an absolute juxtaposition of political trends from across the globe. The episode revolves around a bawdy cartoon bear, who's standing up for elections against a permanently enraged political candidate. Oh, the mighty satires this episode delves into. It's absolutely fantastic! Watch the trailer here (3) Black Museum © Netflix This episode certainly made me cringe in all my elemental glory! I mean, it was gory, with a technological wonder attached to it. A young woman visits an isolated museum, which collects memorabilia from different techno-crimes in the past and happens to meet the proprietor who gets into unique details about the whys and hows of three intense crimes that took place in the past. Little does he know the girl has her own ulterior motives. This story definitely sent shivers down my spine. Watch the trailer here (4) Hated In The Nation © Netflix This is the final episode of the third season and it should actually be re-named 'eventuality'. There are homicide robotic bees, an internet serial killer on the run, who is programming these bees to attack people and, of course, a detective who outruns him, towards the end. Why are the bees robotic? You gotta see it to know it. Watch the trailer here (5) Nosedive © Netflix Nosedive is actually and basically the world we live in, but in the future. What I mean is, it's a story about how we see ourselves vs. how we'd do anything and everything for acceptance and validation. Everything depends on the ratings you get as a human being, which is actually picking up in some parts of the world currently, which means the future is almost here. I've put this episode in my top favourites because it's a hard-hitting reality which we will have to face sometime soon. Watch the trailer here (6) The Nation Anthem © Netflix The absolute dark side to life and technology, the first ever episode of 'Black Mirror' depicted absolute gutsy feels, as Charlie Brooker put a daring proposition of the Prime Minister having *** with a pig to free a fictional princess in captivity. The alarming thing about this episode is people's rapidly changing opinion through social outfits aka technology used in social references and something unthinkable entering the realms of acceptance. Watch the trailer here (7) White Christmas © Netflix This episode was a Christmas special for 2014 and it should've been titled 'Dark Christmas' rather! Two men find each other for company at a remote outpost and tell each other three intense tales, without letting out any secrets, until you figure there's a mega-twist towards the end. This one's a special one and you must watch it. Watch the trailer here While I have only put 7 of my favourite episodes, there are a few more worth a mention for sure. But I'll leave it up to you to decide what you feel should top the list. Subjectivity FTW! For now, I am banking on the 3 episodes in season 5 and can't wait to see what Charlie Brooker has in store for us next.
  14. There is no doubt about the fact that the game of cricket is highly male-dominated and the bigger portion of the cricket-watching audience prefer to watch men's cricket rather than women's cricket. However, this does not make cricketers like Smriti Mandhana and Mithali Raj less entertaining than Virat Kohli or Mahendra Singh Dhoni. All four of the lot have been dominating throughout their professional careers and continue to do so, even now when younger talents are entering the competition to lock horns with them. Recently, the 2018 ICC 'Women's Cricketer' of the year, Mandhana conveyed a rather important message for the entire cricketing world with a little bit of help from the Twitter handle of the International Cricket Council (ICC): Well said, @mandhana_smriti ðpic.twitter.com/xprYp9GFwb — ICC (@ICC) May 9, 2019 “I no longer see myself as a woman cricketer but simply as a cricketer,” said the young athlete. “Why should there be labels when none are required?” This clearly agitated someone, who supposedly is a cricket fan from Pakistan, who then decided to mock women's cricket, calling them “not fun to watch” and straight out “ugly”: I KNOW THE HATE WILL COME TOWARDS... ME AND MANY PISS DRINKERS FROM INDIA WILL AGREE WITH ME TO BUT WILL TALK SHIT. BUT FACT IS WOMEN CRICKET IS BS AND NOT FUN TO WATCH !!! THATS WHY U JUST CANNOT COMPARE IT WITH MEN'S CRICKET JUST CANNOT.......PLUS ALL THESE WOMEN ARE UGLY — WaPlarkaa (@Rockyenzo1) May 9, 2019 “I know the hate will come towards... Me and many piss drinkers from india will agree with me to but will talk shit.” said @Rockyenzo1. “But fact is women cricket is BS and not fun to watch !!! Thats why u just cannot compare it with men's cricket just cannot.......Plus all these women are ugly.” Hate mails and social media trolls these days have become as common as weed in the grass and organisations like the ICC seldom respond to such messages, however, this one tweet seemed to have irked the Council, who decided to him a lesson: It's 2019. Be better. Bye! ð#blocked pic.twitter.com/PPsvvgeT8f — ICC (@ICC) May 9, 2019 Short, sweet, impactful. Soon after, the real fans of the game, you know, the non-sexist kind, came to the support of cricketers like Mandhana and joined the ICC in trolling the troll: Savage ðð — Junaid Jabbar (@JunaidShaikhCA) May 9, 2019 Well done ICC. No room for narrow minded people. This shows their upbringing and their cultural conditioning. Such kind of people need this kind of treatment. — Vishal (@vishallovesall) May 10, 2019 Aukaat dikhayenge di usse apni.ððððð¤£ð¤£ — Rahul Kumar (@rk5444) May 9, 2019 @Rockyenzo1 why you gotta disgrace Pakistan like this on a public forum? — Shaikh Rasheeds Cat (@shaikhs_cat) May 9, 2019
  15. The past year has been quite the roller coaster ride for the Brazilian football player, Neymar Jr. He cried for two days straight and expressed his worry about the recurring metatarsal injury in his foot, he has very strong intentions of leaving his French team, Paris Saint-Germain and now the footballer has been banned for an altercation he got into last month with a fan. On 28th April 2019, Sunday, Les Parisiens lost the Coupe de France final to Rennes 6-5 after a close game that ended with the final score at 2-2. Multiple videos of the Bralizilan getting in a tiff with a fan surfaced on the internet. While initially, Neymar only wanted to have a quick chat with him by on his way out, the athlete did manage to land a punch on the fan's face. Neymar met une pêche à un rennais pic.twitter.com/uXgU3R2l5Y — Claude vaillant (@vaillant92100) April 27, 2019 Neymar's image consultant, Alex Bernardo, too put up an Instagram video according to which the so called 'fan' was talking trash about Neymar and his team. He called Gianluigi Buffon a "buffoon," Marco Verratti a "racist" and "Neymar, learn how to play football!" View this post on Instagram Não vou discutir se é a maneira mais correta de resolver o assunto. Mas que foi MERECIDO, foi ! Veja o que o “torcedor” falou E GRAVOU !! “Buffon você é retardado” “Kurzawa não quero seus cumprimentos” “Verratti racista” “Neymar, aprenda a jogar futebol” Este é o tipo de comportamento que não pode ser admitido. Jogadores de cabeça quente após perder uma final de campeonato e um IDIOTA provocando-os. Certinho ele, né ? Não li uma crítica ao comportamento desse “torcedor”. MERECEU ! . @neymarjr , como sempre, defendeu a si mesmo e a seus companheiros de ofensas. Quem o defenderá de ter ido em defesa dos companheiros de time ? Alguém ? #respeito #respect #neymar #neymarjr #njr A post shared by Alex Bernardo (@alexbernardo_) on Apr 27, 2019 at 5:45pm PDT Nonetheless, the French Football Federation have decided to put a three-month ban on the Forward starting Monday, which means that the 27-year-old will not be a part of Paris Saint-Germain's two final Ligue 1 matches of this season, and also the Trophee des Champions scheduled to take place on 3rd August 2019. The team management believes that it is too harsh a punishment and that PSG will contest this decision at the FFF High Commission of Appeal. "Given the insults endured by several Paris players, including Neymar, at the end of the Coupe de France final, and the various elements submitted to the committee by Paris Saint-Germain in the player's defence, the club considers this sanction severe," said a PSG statement.
  16. Ever since I read about the OnePlus phone and the community, I was sure I too wanted to get my hands on this beauty. It was the phone to have, and the price was a steal for a phone that had everything one needed--great camera, a sleek look and a vision that was tech goals.

The offer is live on Amazon.in, Oneplus.in, OnePlus exclusive offline stores, Croma outlets and Reliance. This is the cheapest the 6T has ever been and it's the last chance to buy one. So hurry up and join this exciting world of the OnePlus community.
  17. The more I watch the ending of the last episode of 'Game of Thrones', the more convinced I am about a few revelations that will make a breakthrough in the next episode. Well, they can't leave us with unanswered questions on how Arya flew all the way, in the sneakiest way possible to kill the Night King, or how the Dothraki just disappeared in approximately 10 seconds. Everything from the 'darkest' episode in the history of TV series was a blur and we're really looking forward to some closure. © HBO A lot of fan theories are going about on the internet and we caught hold of one which made a lot of sense. Because we do need a close ended scenario here! So, do you remember the scene when Jon is trying to fight the zombie dragon, towards the end? Well, to be honest Jon didn't do much throughout the episode. He was either flying his dragon with his lover or fighting a dead dragon. But now it seems like he was helping Arya out in the end. How you ask? Well, according to a fan, while Jon was fighting and screaming at the dead dragon, he wasn't just randomly screaming at the dragon. Then what was he screaming at? © HBO Here's what the fan posted on Reddit about this theory: "Jon screamed at the undead dragon to distract it so Arya can run past and kill the Night King. The undead dragon was protecting the entrance to the Godswood. Watch it again, you can actually hear him scream 'GOOOOO – GO – GO.' 10 seconds later the scene you can see the hair of a White Walker flying up when Arya sprints past the group of White Walkers. Jon once again was ready to sacrifice himself to kill the Night King." So, basically, the dragon was manning the entry to the Godswood, so to distract him Jon started fighting him and yelling 'GO' to Arya at the same time. That'll be one interesting theory if it does come true. It'll certainly give us a fair amount of closure if nothing else! Which also means, everything was plotted and planned carefully in order to kill the Night King. But how does Arya fly all the way over to him and how is it that no one hears her coming? © HBO Well, take a look at the ending anyway, just so you can get a clearer sense of it: So, let's also add the fact that Jon was probably sacrificing himself to make Arya the last hero. Is that a fact? I want to certainly believe it because let's face it, it's Jon! Since this seems quite probable, I am really hoping they break certain revelations to us in episode 4, so we can be at peace and forgive HBO for forgetting to add enough light to watch the damn episode.
  18. Before I begin, there are spoilers, please click away if you don't want them and move on with your life instead of commenting 'unfollowing this page' or 'at least give a warning about spoilers'. I mean it, I'm tired of explaining this to some people who apparently can't read. As for everyone who's seen 'Avengers: Endgame' and is interested in reading more about it, carry on. So, the movie of the decade is here and it was better than our expectations. While it felt like it was totally unexpected - everything from Nat dying to Tony dying (or maybe we were just in denial about the deaths) - it turns out, a lot of it had already been predicted by the fans. Every Marvel fan has spent the entire year watching and rewatching all the movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and spent so much time coming up with theories and predictions ever since the release of 'Avengers: Infinity War'. Obviously, all of that didn't go to waste; so many theories actually came true in the movie, thanks to everyone's vast knowledge of Marvel comics and just by observing everything properly. While we didn't know this is exactly what would happen before, we still heard about theories at least once before. 1. Professor Hulk Everyone was almost 100% sure we'll get Professor Hulk in 'Endgame' and the Russo Brothers did not disappoint. After seeing the constant disagreement and fighting between the Hulk and Bruce Banner all throughout 'Infinity War', we finally got to see that they had put aside all their differences and come to an understanding. Which means that we got Professor with the body and strength of the Hulk and the brilliant mind of Bruce altogether in one giant green Avenger. 2. Time Travel No one knew for sure but everyone knew that the movie will deal with time travel in some way or the other. Actually, this theory was or less proved with leaked pictures of Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr at a set that looked like the final battle scene from the first Avengers movie. Now, we know for sure that all of them travelled back in time to retrieve the infinity stones from the past so they could undo Thanos' snap. The time travel actually ended up giving us some of the best moments from the movie - Cap fighting Cap, 'Hail Hydra', Thor and Rocket sneaking around in Asgard while Loki is lying in a cell, Howard Stark & Peggy Carter in 1970. Well, it also gave us one of the worst moments as well, but I guess it was inevitable. 3. Time Jump A not that important or big theory but still a theory that came true. A lot of people predicted that there would be a time jump in the movie just like a desi soap show our mom watches and it became canon as soon as the trailers came out since we could make a timeline just with Nat's hair. 4. Tony Stark Dying It was something I don't think anyone was ready for but was prepared for at the same time, if that makes any sense. We knew there would be some permanent deaths of some of the OG Avengers and throughout the year, Marvel and Chris Evans were subtly hinting at Cap's death in the movie. I'm pretty sure that it was a strategy to keep Tony Stark's death even more shocking in the movie. Well, it worked, everyone knew this was probably Robert Downey Jr's last movie as Iron Man but we all were rooting for him to retire and have a long and happy life with Pepper and Morgan. Well, at least he got his perfect life for five years and Dad Tony is honestly one of the best parts of the movie. 5. Steve Rogers' Fate Again, we were all prepared, but not really, for his death with all the emotional goodbyes and the jokes by Chris himself. But, he got one of the best endings in the movie and it wraps up his storyline perfectly. He has been ready to sacrifice himself for greater good since he first appeared in the MCU, and he did that in 'Captain America: The First Avenger'. But, after everything was wrapped up in 'Endgame' and Thanos was gone, it was time for him to have his date with Peggy and finally, finally have that dance. While old man Steve was a little shocking at first, it was still a heartwarming moment since he got to live out his life not fighting but being with the love of his life. 6. Cap Passes On The Captain America Mantle To Falcon It felt like Marvel had been hinting at Bucky Barnes to become the new Captain America ever since he held the shield back in 'Captain America: The First Avenger' but turns out, it was passed on over to Sam Wilson aka Falcon. Well, it was going to happen sooner or later and the choice was always between Bucky and Sam. 7. Captain America Wielding Thor's Hammer The electric Captain America was everything we ever wanted, and more. It was hands down the best moment of the movie for me. Thanos is about to kill Thor, but no Cap and Mjölnir to the rescue. What a moment, I would watch the movie like five more times in the theatres just to experience that scene again and again. 8. Thanos Dies In The First Twenty Minutes Last time, it was Loki dying in the first 15-20 minutes, this time it was none other than Thanos. He's alone, without his shield or armour, just cooking and chilling alone after murdering trillions of people. Well, the Avengers obviously avenged everyone but that did not bring back anyone, of course. While it was ultimately a pretty useless thing, since he had already destroyed all the stones and the chance of undoing the snap with it, he was pretty harmless now, considering everything. But, he did see Thor finally aiming for the head and delivering that line perfectly. 9. Pepper Potts Suits Up This was also a theory that had been floating around for a while and yes, it came true in 'Endgame'. Literally everyone fought, so obviously the woman who has killed more Marvel villains than any other character wouldn't sit out the final battle. And, of course, the badass moment of all the powerful women of Marvel together would have been incomplete without her.
  19. From the ASUS ROG Phone to Xiaomi's BlackShark gaming phone, there are a ton of gaming phones in the market. However, the Chinese smartphone maker Nubia's new Red Magic 3 stands out from the rest. The Nubia Red Magic 3 manages to distinguish itself by offering an internal cooling fan. Yes, it's the world's first smartphone to come with a cooling fan inside, which, if you think about it, is pretty nuts. © Nubia It's not just the cooling fan that's keeping the internals cool. The phone also takes advantage of the liquid cooling system. But does it really needs all of that? Well, take a look at the specs, and we'll let you be the judge. The Nubia Red Magic 3 is powered by the Snapdragon 855 processor that's coupled with Adreno 640 GPU. The phone also comes in a bunch of RAM and storage configurations, and the maxed out variant comes with a whopping 12GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. Oh, the display is a 90Hz 6.65-inch FHD+ AMOLED panel that supports HDR. The internals will be kept powered by a 5,000 mAh battery with support for 27W quick charging. In terms of the optics, the Red Magic 3 features a 48MP Sony IMX 586 at the back, and there's a 16MP selfie shooter on the front. Apparently, the phone can record 8K videos too. Also, just like some other gaming phones in the market, this one also features two shoulder buttons and front-facing stereo speakers. © Nubia Pricing & Availability The Red Magic 3, much like many other Chinese phones, will first launch in China on May 3. However, the manufacturer has confirmed that the phone will also debut in the US, UK, Canada, and EU. As for the pricing, the Red Magic 3 starts at 2,899 Yuan for the base variant, and it goes all the way up to 4,200 Yuan for the top-end variant with 12 gigs of RAM.
  20. Fans can be very passionate about their favourite celebrities. After all, for fans, movies can be inspirational, life-changing, and a major influence in their lives. As a tribute, they get elaborate tats, spray paint their faces and even get a quirky haircut in the name of celebrities that they love and adore. Especially after 'Singham', Ajay Devgn had gained massive traction. The Indian audience seems to love a badass cop who is willing to fight the evils of the society while putting his life at stake. This one particular fan loved Devgn enough to get his face imprinted on his head in the form of a haircut. This obviously could be a work of none other than Aalim Hakim. Must tell ya'll this sweet lil incident about a die hard fan of @ajaydevgn Sir! 27 year old Rajwinder & his brother Gurwinder from Punjab Muktsar District run a hair salon there. They'd been trying to get in touch with me for a while & finally got through me via my wife's number. pic.twitter.com/FaFNg344rU — Aalim Hakim (@AalimHakim) April 20, 2019 © aalim hakim/twitter Alim wrote, "Must tell ya'll this sweet lil incident about a die-hard fan of Ajay Devgn Sir! 27-year-old Rajwinder & his brother Gurwinder from Punjab Muktsar District run a hair salon there.

  21. Being the better half of a celebrity might have a lot of perks and incentives, but, from what we've seen in the past, it's definitely not easy. Association with a popular figure attracts constant media scrutiny and it's needless to say that the privacy goes out of the window. Similarly, dating a sportsperson or being married to one has its own disadvantages. The prime example is Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli. The duo might be regarded as the 'power couple' of India, but every time Kohli fails on the field or Anushka's movie flops, the couple becomes the obvious target for social media trolls. And, it doesn't end there. Placed under the scanner, their every move is watched, judged and, thereon, scrutinised heavily. © Instagram/@stuartbinny84 Something similar came to the fore recently when a cricket fan targeted Mayanti Langer while using her hubby Stuart's on-field performance. Arguably one of the most prominent sports presenters in the country, Mayanti, apart from being married to Indian cricketer Stuart, has carved a niche of her own. But, every time her husband does something (whether good or bad), she becomes the obvious target for the social media trolls. The Indian Premier League (IPL) clash between Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) saw Stuart, who was batting for the first time this season, smashing three towering sixes and two fours during his unbeaten knock of 33 runs. After today's inning of #stuartBinny @MayantiLanger_B first time change her DP from solo to with hubby ðð#KXIPvRR #IPL2019 #Iplt20 pic.twitter.com/k0DPsbz00j — Navneet Kumar (@navneet35093) April 16, 2019 While his blazing innings probably bolstered his chances of getting more games, it eventually wasn't enough from averting a 12-run defeat for Rajasthan at the PCA stadium in Mohali. Following Punjab's win, a cricket fan tried to troll Mayanti despite her husband's fairly decent performance by pointing out: "After today's inning of #stuartBinny @MayantiLanger_B first time change her DP from solo to with hubby". Really Navneet? Considering you don't have my number you don't know what the picture actually is 𤭠but thanks a ton for digging out this one, it's a super pic ðð¼ https://t.co/kgmgm6qBhT — Mayanti Langer Binny (@MayantiLanger_B) April 16, 2019 Though many try to ignore such trolls in a bid to garner unwanted attention, Mayanti took this cricket fan to the task before giving a befitting reply. "Really Navneet? Considering you don't have my number you don't know what the picture actually is but thanks a ton for digging out this one, it's a super pic," she tweeted. Sorry that you seemed to have missed #KXIPvRR on @StarSportsIndia you can join us on #MarutiSuzukiCricketLive on SS 1/2/Hindi/HD and of course @hotstartweets Cheers ðð¼ https://t.co/Jv59z4xOXZ — Mayanti Langer Binny (@MayantiLanger_B) April 16, 2019 Another fan tried to pull off something similar before asking: "@MayantiLanger_B where is Stuart? Not on the horizon anyway?". And, once again, Mayanti prevailed like a total boss, "Sorry that you seemed to have missed #KXIPvRR on @StarSportsIndia you can join us on #MarutiSuzukiCricketLive on SS 1/2/Hindi/HD and of course @hotstartweets Cheers," she tweeted. On the other hand, a narrow win for Punjab has now propelled them to the fourth spot with 10 points to their name, while Rajasthan, owing to their sixth defeat this season, find themselves languishing at the seventh spot with just four points for their showing.
  22. It's been two years since the last season of 'Game Of Thrones' premiered. April 14 is right here, and people have been calling it the beginning of the end. We can't wait to find out the fate of our beloved characters. From crazy fan theories to insane speculations, various threads on Quora and Reddit have tried to dissect the ending. But no one can confirm things. The creators of GOT have been tight-lipped about the plot surrounding season 8. However, we do know that cliffhangers from season 7 will be answered in the coming days and the long-awaited war between the white walkers and the living will finally happen. This also means we will be seeing more reunions in season 8 (Jon and Arya is one reunion that we're waiting for). Daenerys, Sansa and Arya meeting is one such face-off that is going to happen in the first episode. In a new interview with a leading publication, Emilia Clarke talks about the fact that Daenerys will meet the Stark sisters for the first time in the very first episode of the latest season. Dany, in order to rule, needs Snow and his allies to cooperate which is why she needs to get along with Sansa and Arya. © HBO "I like to think that it's like 'Meet the Parents,'" Clarke told the publication. "It's like: 'I hope they like me. This dude's wicked. It's a real good thing we got going on. He's the final piece. We're destined for greatness and world domination is a breath away.' And so I need to be like: 'Can I braid your hair, Sansa? Little Arya, come over here, let's play some cricket.' So there's that. And then, very, very quickly, it's like: 'Wait, is it just me, or do they hate me?'" You will get to witness the Stark-Targaryen face-off on 15 April, 2019.
  23. Arguably one of the highly-rated young talents in the country, KL Rahul climbed up the ladder in Indian cricket on the basis of consistent performances. Making full use of the opportunities, his breakthrough 2013-14 season laid the foundation of Karnataka's Ranji Trophy triumph, proving his credentials as a first-class cricketer. Then, a profitable 2016 IPL season saw him earning his cap for the national team. His appetite for runs further gave India an opportunity to boast of an extra option at the top of the order. And, over the years, the 26-year-old has established himself as valuable addition to the Indian cricket team. But, apart from his artistry with the willow, Rahul is also looked upon as a youth icon - thanks to his distinctive personal style. KL Rahul Tattoos & Their Meanings Whether it's his choice of clothing or trend-setting hairdos, Rahul continues to enjoy the status of one of the most stylish cricketers in the Indian team. The dashing right-hander, who continues to carry out his on-field responsibilities in style, has also been a big fan of tattoos - something that has captured the imagination of cricket fans. We've all seen the multiple warrior-style tattoos which cover much of his skin. But, while his dedicated fans know the story behind some of his pieces, much of the art he has on his skin has been a mystery. But, not anymore. In an exclusive interaction with MensXP, the Red Bull athlete finally revealed seven of his favourite tattoos and what they really mean to him. Lighthouse On Left Forearm © Red Bull While a lighthouse might seem like an abstract tattoo to many, for Rahul, it has a special meaning. The Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) opener has got a lighthouse tattooed on his arm in a bid to remember his home. The right-handed batsman grew up by the beach in Mangaluru before he shifted to Bengaluru to pursue his interest in cricket. One look at the lighthouse tattoo takes Rahul back to the memories of his childhood home. Key With Ram Horns © Red Bull A true Aries, Rahul was eager to get a tattoo around his sun sign. That's why the Indian opener for a customized version with ram horns to go with it. The key – which goes around his forearm – signifies being open to learning new things and unlocking his mind with new experiences. Clock On His Bicep © Red Bull The clock tattoo on the inside of his left bicep has the hands inked at 11 o'clock. Rahul was born at 11 o'clock which is why the clock hands are tattooed at that position. The phrase “Veni, vidi, vici”, which is Latin for “come, see, conquer” is tattooed around the clock to signify that Rahul's time as an Indian cricketer has begun and he intends to conquer the world with his bat. All-Seeing Eye On His Left Bicep © Red Bull This tattoo is a reminder that his grandparents are always watching over him and are protecting him. Deshi Basara Script On Right Forearm © Red Bull Rahul is a huge fan of the comic book superhero Batman. The expression Deshi Basara – which means “to rise up” – is from the 2012 Batman film The Dark Knight Rises. 284 In Roman Numerals © Red Bull This tattoo runs across the right side of his torso. It is his Test cap number for India. He was the 284th cricketer to play for the Indian national cricket team, so this tattoo is very special to him because he had to work really hard to earn the spot in the India team. Parents' Names Tattooed On His Wrists © Instagram/@rahulkl KL Rahul has his mother's name Rajeshwari on his left wrist and his dad's name Lokesh on his right wrist. When his parents started getting annoyed about the rising number of tattoos he was getting, KL Rahul got their names tattooed on his wrists. Since then, they haven't had a problem with him getting more tattoos. More Tattoos © Instagram/@rahulkl The first tattoo KL Rahul ever got was a giant wing on his back when he was 17 years old. He also has the image of his dog Simba tattooed on his back. His left hand has the number one on it, which is one of his most recent tattoos. He got the number one tattoo because it is his jersey number in the Indian cricket team. He also has the number XI tattoo on his bicep, which was his jersey number when he first started playing for India. The rose tattoo on his left hand symbolizes new beginnings. The tattoo of arrows on his left hand is to protect him from harm. The owl tattoo on his left hand is a symbol of wisdom and knowledge. He also has tattoos for water, air and sun across his body, which are the three elements that are important to him.
  24. Not a lot of sports fans of this country would have used names like Rahul Dravid and Lionel Messi in a single sentence. While being the top personalities of cricket and football respectively, they are known to have devoted fans from all over the world by their side whenever they make news. So when the time did come to talk about the two athletes in one breath, fans of sports as a whole did not lack in enthusiasm. If Dravid and Messi had come across each other at Camp Nou yesterday pic.twitter.com/gOv9QOtNj2 — Sootinho | Juanan stan (@heartgoesjuanan) April 7, 2019 Yes, one of the finest cricketers India has ever produced was spotted enjoying a game of football at Barcelona F.C.'s home ground of Camp Nou on Sunday. Always the one to show his affection for the game, Dravid had a lifelong dream of watching the Spanish giants play live at one of the most popular stadiums in the world. “It's incredible, it's a huge honour, it's one of the things I've always wanted to do, come to Camp Nou and watch a football game. To be here and experience the atmosphere, it's absolutely electric,” said 'The Wall' in an interview after the game. As the men in red and blue went on a tear, defeating Diego Simeone's Atletico Madrid in a La Liga matchup, 2-0 behind Luis Suarez and Argentine legend Lionel Messi's back to back goals in the 85th and 86th minutes respectively, Dravid was surprised by the two top-tier players and their skills. “To be able to watch players like Messi and Suarez play live, it's fantastic for me and my family,” said Dravid in a video on YouTube. Unlike any casual fan of football, Dravid had the eye for the 'off-the-ball' movement of Messi and did not hold back on commenting on that. “He's an absolute genius. It's incredible to watch what he does and to watch him live… One thing to see with Messi is how fantastic he is with the ball but it is incredible to see how good he is without the ball and how he is able to find spaces,” said the former Indian cricketer. Talking about the atmosphere of the Barcelona stadium, Dravid compared it to any of the Indian cricket arenas during the ongoing Indian Premier League season. "Cricket is a different game. We have a great atmosphere and a great crowd in the IPL and a lot of Test matches as well. Cricket is the No.1 sport in India but football is catching up very quickly.” However, Dravid did make a statement that led to a fraction of the common fans of cricket and football call him out. To the horror of fans of footballers other than Messi, he said: “I don't think there's been a better player than him (Messi) ever.” Now obviously, a comment like that was bound to gather some hate: Mr . Dravid , who told you like no one can not match Messi ? Did you watch CR 7 GAMES ? If you watch RONALDO GAMES ! MAY BE YOUR OPTION IS DEFINITELY CHANGED. — krishnadasari (@krishnadasari9) April 8, 2019
  25. The year was 1992. The US men's basketball team was pretty much swatting its opponents away. USA took on Croatia for the gold medal match and won by a 32-point margin. That side in the years to come, came to be known as the Dream Team and truth be told, it had some big names. The team had the likes of Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Patrick Ewing and Chris Mullin among others. But one man drew a lot of attention and already had a budding career with Chicago Bulls in the NBA. That man was Michael Jordan. In 8 games, he averaged nearly 15 points and by the time he retired, would leave a legacy behind to be proud of. © Getty Images 32,292 points, 6672 rebounds and 5633 assists speaks a lot of his ability on the court. He also averaged over 30 points per game. When one hears his name, the memory of him flying in the air to make a basket stands out. But this is not the story of his legacy, it is the impact he made on that day in 1992 in the mind of a 6-year old boy who was, well, still getting to understand the world around him. Yours truly was discovering this new sport where one had to put the ball in the basket and here was this player who was stealing his imagination. I actually owe a lot to basketball. In my school days, while I was more into cricket, basketball was the sport that I played to keep fit. In fact, while it may sound a little too much of a stretch, I even owe my very late growth spurt to the sport. But enough about all that, back to why Jordan was so important in my life. © Getty Images Growing up in the 1990s, particularly in India, one did not have much access to sports like nowadays as far as information was concerned. There was no digital media where we could get updates just like that. Back then, the newspaper, TV and radio were our only options. NBA matches would be telecast late at night as they were being played right across the world, and the odds of staying up late in the school days was out of the question. Still, the fan in me would not give up. Occasionally I would sneak into the living room and watch with a low volume when Jordan was playing. It paid off. I got to see him win the NBA championship with the Bulls in 1996, 1997 and 1998. Not to mention being part of the All-Star from 1996 to 1998 and 2002 to 2003. Sometimes I do wonder, what if Jordan was playing now and that too in his prime? We sure would have loved to see him take on the likes of LeBron James. But when all is said and done, Jordan is the reason I started playing and watching the game, to begin with. It all began on that day in 1992. It was a pleasure to watch him on the court and the inner child in me counts himself lucky. So from the bottom of my heart, I thank you Michael Jordan, for making me fall in love with the basket, the ball and the court.
