  1. Break ups are bad and seemingly the one advice you always get post your break up, is keeping your distance from your ex-girlfriend. Have you heard your friends always tell you "whatever you do bro, just don't hook up with your ex, move on man"? Well, that advice is valid and legit only because you want to forget the past and move forward and maybe give someone else a chance. But there is a lingering feeling deep inside you, which probably still connects to your ex, and it's kinda inevitable and there is nothing you can do to contain that feeling really. © MensXP There may come a time where you will bump into your ex at a party or a bar, and if you haven't seen each other for long, you'll either ignore each other's respective presence or rekindle long lost conversations. Most likely, it's the latter and sometimes, those conversations could bring about latent feelings and the sexual pleasure you both derived from each other. Yes, sleeping with an ex is as common as the common cold and many of us indulge in it, and feel either ashamed or angry the next day or know for a fact that feelings for them still remain. But what if I told you, sleeping with an ex is not that bad, after all? Yes, you read that right. According to some recent research from Wayne State University, having *** with your ex might not be such a bad idea, in fact, the research argues that it may even be a 'good' idea. © MensXP The study was conducted in two parts and it analysed the daily experiences and activities of 113 individuals who'd recently broken up or were going through a break-up. Two months after the break-up, they were given a questionnaire to fill. The questionnaire asked if they'd tried to have physical contact with their ex and if they were emotionally attached to them and how they felt, every day, after they'd had some form of physical contact with their ex. The second part was somewhat similar, where 372 participants were asked to take a survey, which asked them similar questions about physical contact with their ex's and their level of attachments with them. The result was quite fascinating actually. Rather than expecting that sleeping with an ex is emotionally turbulent and can leave feelings to linger on, hindering your ability to move on, while prolonging the heartbreak, the researchers found that sleeping with an ex really didn't stop the day-today healing process. The participants who pined after their exes were more likely to have *** with them and even after that they didn't feel heartbroken or emotionally stunted, or even upset. In fact, hooking up with their ex, left them feeling more positive, every day. © MensXP "This research suggests that societal handwringing regarding trying to have *** with an ex may not be warranted. The fact that *** with an ex is found to be most eagerly pursued by those having difficulty moving on, suggests that we should perhaps instead more critically evaluate people's motivations behind pursuing *** with an ex." - the lead researcher, Stephanie Spielmann said in an interview with an international publication. But that being established, it's always necessary to know where you stand with your feelings and your emotions. There may have been research conducted to establish that *** is good with the ex but more often than not, it's subjective. If you feel mangled up and distraught after any form of physical contact with them or if you feel that physical intimacy with an ex acts as a deterrent for you to move on successfully, then you have to weigh your decision well. But if you think like the rest of the subjects from the research, your feelings are intact and you feel good about it, then, of course, go for it. But remember, don't have any expectations. if you're sleeping with an ex, in order to win them back, it may lead to more complications later and leave you more heartbroken than before!
  2. Ahead of the ICC World Cup in England and Wales, as soon as the schedule was announced, the date 16th June was earmarked by cricket fans on their respective calendars, as they rearranged their schedule to accommodate for the highly-anticipated clash between India and Pakistan. A little over two weeks into the tournament, the mother of all battles was finally there, pitting arch-rivals India and Pakistan against each other. While inclement weather was expected to disrupt the proceedings at Old Trafford in Manchester, the fans were still unnerved with anticipations of an exciting contest. But, what eventually unfolded on the 'D-day' was hard to fathom. Despite their dismal record against India at the ICC events, the Pakistani cricket team was expected to put up a good show against their arch-rivals, especially after getting the better of them in the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy. But, contrary to popular perception, the Sarfaraz Ahmed-led side failed to negate the Indian challenge and fell flat in what proved to be a one-sided affair. On a big day, India's big-name batsmen delivered. Here are their best shots! #INDvPAK #CWC19 #TeamIndia pic.twitter.com/kIta58HmAc — ICC (@ICC) June 16, 2019 Rohit Sharma's blistering knock of 140 runs had powered India to a formidable total of 336 runs. And, in reply, Pakistan were humbled by the Indian bowling unit, even when they lost frontline bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar to an untimely injury in the fifth over. Poor shot selection, lack of temperament and failure to stitch key partnerships, all added to the downfall of Pakistan in their forgettable 89-run loss (D/L). If losing to their arch-rivals wasn't enough, the poor performance by the Pakistani cricketers further left their fans baffled. Guiding his team to a famous win on the back of a 'Man of the Match' performance, Rohit was visibly happy in the post-match press conference. But, after winning everyone over with his formidable show with the bat, Rohit took the social media by storm for his response to a journalist's query. Watch Kuldeep Yadav's magical delivery to dismiss Babar Azam, and all the other Pakistan wickets #INDvPAK #CWC19 #TeamIndia pic.twitter.com/ybqvLYy9Ul — ICC (@ICC) June 16, 2019 Given their epic batting collapse, Pakistani batsmen became the subject of immense criticism following their loss. Thus, it made sense when one of the Pakistani journalists asked Rohit if he'd like to give some advice to the Pakistani batsmen for their struggle so far in the ongoing ICC spectacle. Rohit Sharma Best Reply To Journalist On Pakistan ð#CongratulationsIndia #IndiaVsPakistan #MaukaMauka #ICCWorldCup2019 #INDvPAK #RohitSharma pic.twitter.com/9PFYiu7u4Y — ðSreeram S Pð (@Dr_SreeramSP) June 17, 2019 Though the Pakistani batsmen, given their current state, could surely use some tips, India's vice-captain was probably not in the mood to preach. Thus, in response to the journo's query, the 'Hitman' said: "Agar main Pakistan ka coach bana to main bataunga, abhi kya bataunga! (If I become the coach of Pakistan then surely I will tell you. What can I say now!)". While his witty response left everyone at the press conference in splits, it also struck a chord with cricket fans on social media.

  3. The Beyerdynamic Beat Byrd wired in-ear earphones showed up for review at a time when the 3.5mm headphone jack is becoming obsolete. Seriously, I didn't think I'd be reviewing wired in-ear earphones in 2019. But you know what? It's earphones like these that make me want to use smartphones and other audio equipment that have an audio jack. Trust me, I've been using the Beyerdynamic Beat Byrd earphones for the last couple of weeks to listen to all my music, both when I am just chilling at home and on the go, and I've been loving it. Let me tell you all about it - Design & Build Quality In terms of the looks, these look like very basic. You see, Beyerdynamic has been making audio equipment for a long time now. Their products are best known for audio quality, not much for the design aesthetics. It's one of those brands that focus on performance over looks. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer So when you look at the Beat Byrd and give it a listen, you'll quickly realize that the company's objective was to make a piece of hardware that's more functional. The earpiece housing is made out of plastic and you get silicon ear tips. There are no fancy rugged braided cables to be seen here and all you get is a cable made out of rubber. These also happen to be one of the most affordable products from the company, which explains why it doesn't look all that fancy. They're certainly not going to grab any attention like, say, the AirPods do, but the audiophiles around you will definitely appreciate your choice. Also, they're supremely comfortable. I literally had them on for multiple hours the other day without experiencing fatigue. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer And since we're talking about the build quality, I think it's a good time to point out that these earphones lack a remote or mic. So yes, you won't be able to take calls or switch/ play/ pause music. It'll obviously come as a surprise for most people, but that shouldn't really bother you if you're picking these earphones strictly for listening to music. Beyerdynamic Beat Byrd Audio Quality Before I talk about the audio quality, I'd like to point out that it's extremely important to pick the right size of ear tips for a snug fit. That's how you'll be able to enjoy the music and get the most out of this pair of earphones. In fact, that holds true for all the earphones, because if they don't fit well enough, then you're not going to experience bass. The Beat Byrd comes with a couple of ear tips inside the box, so be sure you play around with the fit before jumping into music. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer That's the first thing I did before listening to any music and boy was I surprised by the audio quality. Alright, I am not going to say that these are best sounding earphones or headphones that I've ever used. The 1More Quad Driver earphones and the Sennheiser HE 1 still take the cake for that, but the Beat Byrd is certainly one of the best wired in-ear earphones I've used in my recent memory. I started listening to my usual Spotify playlist to get an idea of how good they are. But as soon as I connected it to my Pixel 3a XL and popped them in, I was quite surprised by the audio quality. And that's when I started exploring more music, going back to my old playlist to find some classic funk and hip-hop music. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer The Beyerdynamic Beat Byrd is a pair of bass heavy earphones. If you're not into them, then these aren't for you. But one of the things that I really liked is that the bass had more depth than I had expected. The way they're tuned is extremely warm and friendly, and the bass is clearly given more supremacy. If you primarily listen to hip-hop music Tupac's 'Until the End of Time' Album. Or try listening to something like Fat Larry's 'Band - Act Like You Know', you'll love it. The Final Say You can pick up the Beyerdynamic Beat Byrd for just Rs. 2,199, which, as mentioned earlier, makes it the company's one of the most affordable products. At that price, it's really hard to criticize it. Yes, the design could have been a little better, but it's important to understand that it's not always about the design. If you like bass-heavy earphones, then you find it an absolute pleasure to use these earphones. The audio quality is simply addictive. Overall, I'll say that Beyerdynamic Beat Byrd's bass-heavy sound is something that you'll absolutely fall in love with. Even without any discounts, these are simply awesome for the price. So, just go ahead and pick one up.
  4. With a strong presence of anti-abortion bills in the US, everyone's taking to social media to defend women's rights. Even celebrities have been vocal about the sheer inconsideration of women's choice over their bodies. Miley Cyrus is one such celebrity who feels strongly about this and in a collaboration with Marc Jacobs has released pink hoodies, benefits of which will directly go to Planned Parenthood, which strives to provide accessible abortion services to as many women as possible. The hoodie comes with a strong message, 'Don't f*ck with my freedom". The back of the hoodie reads “Miley Cyrus x Marc Jacobs” and “The Charity Hoodie Marc Jacobs” is printed on the sleeve. Here's a tweet that Marc Jacobs shared, take a look: Miley Cyrus x Marc Jacobs THE Charity Hoodie ð 100% of proceeds benefit Planned Parenthood. Pre-order now: https://t.co/EXSoQpZ4TX pic.twitter.com/bQFeUPu4xL — Marc Jacobs (@marcjacobs) June 4, 2019 Miley Cyrus also took to Instagram to promote her campaign and post pictures of this shoot: View this post on Instagram DON'T **** WITH MY FREEDOM ð @themarcjacobs @marcjacobs @plannedparenthood @happyhippiefdn A post shared by Ashley O (@mileycyrus) on Jun 4, 2019 at 9:29am PDT This is not the first time Miley has supported Planned Parenthood. In 2016, she collaborated with Marc Jacobs and Marilyn Winter to create a portrait series, with all proceeds from the 50 prints benefiting the women's health care organization. You can pre-order this hoodie from Marc Jacob's site for 175 dollars which comes down to twelve thousand one hundred and seventeen rupees.
  5. You know what's more important than the way you dress, how you speak, the confidence you exude and the personality you carry? It's how you make a first impression on someone and that overtakes anything and everything you're trying to be or are. Making a first impression on an autopilot has to be good, duh, but that's not entirely your thing to decide. What I mean is, first impression is usually decided by a crowd around you or the person you're meeting for the first time and once that impression is made, you can't really change it, because no one really believes in second chances when it comes to first impressions. In fact, you might have heard the saying 'first impressions are last impression' and there is a lot of truth in that. © Eros International Making a first impression on a girl you're meeting for the first time is equally important. That's because if you're really in to her or meeting her for the first time, you really want to crank it up a bit and be the best version of yourself but you don't want to over-do it. You want to remain calm and subtle, ambitious and confident and someone she'll gel with easily. Here are 3 important things to keep a check on if you wish to make a good first impression in front of a woman you really like. (1) Stand Tall Well, literally and figuratively. By this I mean, don't stand in front of her with a hunched back because that denotes lack of confidence and dullness and you certainly don't want to give out those vibes. Correct your posture, stand tall and talk with extreme confidence when you do talk to her. Don't be over-confident. That's a really big turn off. Just be yourself and don't look down and talk to her. Look in to her eyes and make conversation, talk loud enough for her to hear you clearly and don't act cocky, boast or show off. She's on a lookout to spot these things in you and if she does, you're out bro. Just stand tall! © Pinterest (2) Don't Focus On Yourself Too Much I know it's a tough situation at times, especially when you're an introvert and you have to deal with anxiety every time you meet someone new. But the key is to not focus on making yourself comfortable as much as making the other person comfortable because when you make the other person feel comfortable, you automatically calm down because you both are calm and are within good energy together. The energy YOU HAVE created! By shifting your concern on someone else you shift focus on the knee deep anxiety that was making a home in you, while you were trying to make a good first impression. © Filmkraft Productions Pvt. Ltd (3) Be Good At Small Talk Of course if you meet her for the first time, you wouldn't divulge personal information, neither would you ask her to do the same. This is where small talk really comes in handy. If you start making small talk, you might catch her interest over something and then maybe you can start talking about that very topic. Small talk plays a crucial role in connecting with other people. Just keep the conversation flowing and unless you've stalked her before hand, ask her questions every now and then, through the small talk to get to know her better, before eventually making the conversation a bit more personal. © Eros Entertainment There are obviously other things you need to keep in mind to make a good first impression. For instance, always keep smiling, be on time and don't make the other person wait, be comfortable in your clothing, have an introduction prepared, don't ask too many personal questions in one go or talk shop all the time and most importantly, breath! If you follow through with these plus the important ones mentioned above, there is no way you can make a bad impression on her, or anyone else ever.
  6. It looked like the hosts of the ICC World Cup 2019, Team England, were in for a surprise when South Africa chose to bowl first and dismissed one of the most celebrated opening batsman, Jonny Bairstow on the first delivery that he faced, thanks to the flamboyant Imran Tahir. However, soon enough, the World Cup favourites got back to their winning ways with Jason Roy and Joe Root forming a solid partnership in the early overs of their batting innings followed by skipper Eoin Morgan's technically sound performance that provided him with a half-ton in the first game of the quadrennial tournament. England's batting highlight would however consist of more video footage of the lefty all-rounder Ben Stokes who set the Lord's Stadium ablaze with his thunderous batting performance worth 89 runs in just 79 deliveries which included nine boundaries. Having said that, none of these shots made for the most exciting moment of the game for the 27-year-old athlete. What really got the thousands of Englishmen watching the match from the bleachers on their feet was this unreal, almost unbelievable catch Stokes took in the 35th over. What a catch from Ben Stokes! #ENGvSA pic.twitter.com/wpdI7UnJfQ — Pete Ransom (@PeteRansom) May 30, 2019 Running towards the boundary and off-balance, Stokes raised his right hand without even looking, possibly to prevent the ball from going for a six. Instead, the ball stuck to the cricketer's hand as he fell down on the field and did a small roll to prevent injury. Rising to his feet to the roar of the audience, Stokes found himself to be shocked and took his sweet time to believe what he had done. The incredible catch helped England dismiss South Africa's Andile Phehlukwayo, soon after which, the 'Three Lions' team were able to register their first victory of the 2019 World Cup. Twitter responded to the English all-rounder's zeal with complete and utter disbelief: Take a bow, Ben Stokes...

"One of the greatest catches of all time" ð²ð¥#CWC19 pic.twitter.com/uTUf3WSNqq — SportCentre (@SportCentre8) May 30, 2019 For his exceptional batting performance and his superhuman efforts as a fielder, Stokes was also honoured with the Man of the Match award. England defeated South Africa by 104 runs and will be locking horns with Pakistan on Monday, 3rd June 2019.
  7. Many of us have a number of 'hidden' talents that do not make their way into the outside world for others to see because of a number of reasons. Either we are too shy, or not too confident or too self-critical to even consider it as a talent that can be let out in public. Well it seems that a Karnataka cop called Chandrakant Hutgi, who is a head constable at the Hubli rural police station, is one such person. He has been named as the 'Pied Piper of the Police Department' after he transformed his lathi into a flute and played such melodious tunes, that IPS officer stationed there was inspired to post the video of Hutgi in action online. Chandrakant Hutgi, Head Constable from Hubli Rural Police station has converted his Deadly Fiber Lathi into a Musical Instrument... we are proud of him... pic.twitter.com/gyZWhk1lkb — Bhaskar Rao IPS (@deepolice12) May 28, 2019 IPS officer Bhaskar Rao invited Hutgi to Bangalore and even awarded him with a special cash award. “Rao called me to Bengaluru on Monday with the musical lathi to play for him in his office after he heard from his colleagues that I converted it into a flute. He also rewarded me,” Hutgi told IANS. © Twitter The video has since gained a lot of momentum online and people are thoroughly impressed with head constable Hutgi's talent. As for the man himself, he calls this his hobby. By using simple tools Hutgi made eight holes on his lathi and turned it into a flute on which he loves to play Kannada film songs while he isn't busy working. No wonder he has impressed so many people who cannot stop praising him for his show of unique talent. What innovation we say!

  9. Once considered to be just a temporary fix unless one got a 'real job', bartending has evolved into a full-blown profession in India, so much so, that skilled barmen from all over the country are competing among themselves to see who the best in the business it. Scotch brand Monkey Shoulder decided to bring together some of the most talented and skilled bartenders to lock horns in a multi-level 'Ultimate Bartender Championship' for their fourth straight season in the country with the second leg of the contest taking place at AMPM, Cyber Hub, Gurgaon on Tuesday. The idea behind the competition is to help these professionals get better at what they can do and also have a little bit of exposure beyond the bar counter as well. After gruelling levels of testing the various aspects that make a great barman, 20 finalists will be selected from the major metropolitan cities with the ultimate winner getting the chance to perform at the London Cocktail Week in October. The highest-scorer from North region, Akhilesh Sheoran working with Together At 12th – Le Meridien, Gurgaon commented saying, “Bartending is a passion for me, and I am very excited to be competing at the globally recognized event.” © Top Scorer from Gurgaon - Akhilesh Sheoran with Pankaj Balachandran Brand Ambassador for Monkey Shoulder We caught up with one of the leading bartenders of the country and the Indian brand ambassador of Monkey Shoulder, Pankaj Balachandran on the contest and what it takes to be successful in this highly creative, innovative and competitive industry: “The culture of bartending in India is growing at a very fast rate. In the last 10 years of my professional career as a bartender, I have travelled a lot of European and South Asian countries and I can confidently say that in the next five to ten years, India will be the leading destination for the cocktail industry and every brand in the world has their eyes on India. It is a good time to be in the bar industry in India.” “I think bartending is the best job if you have the passion for it. While a lot of people think that it is an easy job, I am here to tell you that it isn't. You have to work for a minimum of 10-12 hours, and you have so much prep work to do.” “You are working on the ingredients, you are serving the customers, you are regularly cleaning up your space and then, of course, you are preparing the drinks as well. So, basically, while making delicious cocktails, a bartender also works as a chef, a server and also the housekeeping.” “If you have the passion for it, the sky 's the limit for you. I have this personal hashtag, #SqueezeLimeAndTravelTheWorld, and that is essentially what bartending is to me.” View this post on Instagram The bottle is not big .. we just shrunk after that epic guest shift ! What an absolute pleasure sharing the stage with @karthikbarlife ! To more such evenings and more such cocktails ! Bengaluru you were amazing as always ! . . #cocktails #guestshifts #cocktailprogram #bartakeover #bartender #bar #drinks #cocktailsforyou #cocktails #monkey #monkeyshouldercocktail #monkeyshoulderambassador #ambadassador #badass #shift #crazy #bestbar #ambassadorlife #travellingjob #squeezelimeandtraveltheworld A post shared by Pankaj Balachandran (@isaynegroni) on Apr 12, 2019 at 11:54pm PDT “When I joined this industry, my whole family was against this decision of mine. My parents said things like 'Oh! You are going to become a cleaner or a cook' because the profession was new and people did not respect the waiters or bartenders back then but the situation has changed drastically in the last 10 years. I have seen people who went to good colleges, who used to earn good money and had 'real jobs' leave everything and join bartending.” “When I started off as a Management Trainee at the Taj, I began with a pay slip worth 15 grand but that has changed. Good bartenders are now pulling massive salaries like 1.5 - 2 lakh per month, which is amazing! It almost feels as if they were hired by Google or NASA.” “The biggest lesson that I can give to aspiring bartenders out there is to stay humble and be open to learning throughout your life. A lot of barmen, if they do well in such competitions, feel like they deserve a salary double of what they used to earn and feel like they know everything and this is where they get stagnant in their career.” “Money will come but the limes still need to be squeezed.”
  10. Snapchat is back in the news guys, and this time, it's because of a new filter that's quite hilarious. It's the new Gender Changing filter that can make you look like a girl or a boy. Even if you don't actively use Snapchat anymore, you should still check it out. It works surprisingly good. But that's not the main story you're here for, is it? Well, a guy decided to take it to a whole new level by setting up a Tinder account for a female version of himself which he created using the filter. Yes, it sounds like a dumb idea, but it 'she' ended up getting a ton of likes and matches. © Twitter Jake Askew said he decided to set up the account because it looked 'unreal' to him. But little did he know that a lot of folks on Tinder would agree. He apparently got over 1,650 likes on his profile, and he ended up matching with 200-400 of them. WHAT?? As you can see, he set up the account by the name of 'Jess', and marked her as a student at the University of Derby. He noted that a lot of guys approached 'Jess' with rather indecent proposals. © Pexels He ended up sharing this whole fiasco on Twitter, and the tweet has since been liked by more than 6,000 people. This Snapchat filter is clearly trending right now! Go, give it a try if you haven't already.
  11. Voting is our fundamental right and like I said earlier, the entire nation's fate depends on the tiny mark of blue ink on your fingers. Be it commoners or actors, cricketers and politicians; everyone is busy exercising their right and urging other people to do the same. So is cricketer Virat Kohli. Instagram Virat Kohli, one of the finest batsmen in the world and RCB (Royal Challengers Bangalore) captain, is all set to cast his vote in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections 2019 and he announced the same on his Instagram on Sunday. Sharing his voter ID on Instagram story, Kohli wrote, "Ready to vote in Gurugram on the 12th May. Are you?" Instagram However, he deleted the stories, probably because his personal information was revealed in public. He later posted only the front side of his voter ID and blurred out the details. Voting in Delhi and Gurugram will be held on May 12. But, do you know what else is on May 12? The final match of IPL 2019 is in Hyderabad. Although, Virat Kohli's RCB is at the bottom in the point table, if they miraculously manage to enter the finals then Kohli will have a tough time travelling between the two cities. Instagram In other news, at least Kohli's goofy expression on his Voter ID card is making us feel less miserable about our Aadhar card pictures.
  12. Celebrities and Instagram fitness influencers are guilty of selling a lot of shit to you that you do not really need. Every other day, you will find them endorsing a new product or a supplement that promises to magically build muscle, make you lose fat or enhance your performance. One such product that has gained wide popularity is the 'high-altitude' training mask. It's a questionable-looking mask that you may have seen on hipsters in your gym, mostly while running like bunnies on the treadmill, or worse during lifting weights. These masks claim to improve your aerobic capacity by increasing Vo2 max output during exercise. How does it do that? By making lesser oxygen available forcing your body to give greater output. © Getty Images A study was done and published in the International Journal of Sports Sciences where they took two test groups and made them perform HIIT workout. One of the groups wore the mask and another did not wear the mask. At the end of the study, all the subjects had an improved Vo2 max but the improvements between the two groups were not that different. The study concluded that HIIT as a training pattern is efficient in increasing Vo2 max, the mask is simply useless. The notion of lesser oxygen available making your body give greater output is similar to saying that the lesser fuel you put in the tank of your car, the higher the mileage would be. And the argument that it gives your body a low-oxygen performance capability, the fundamentals behind the thought in itself is misled. This is because at higher altitudes the oxygen in the air itself is lesser. This by default makes your body adapt to the specific demands. When you wear an altitude mask, the oxygen in the air does not change. It just reduces the amount of oxygen that you can take it by putting a blocker between the air and your respiratory system. © Training Mask While doing low-intensity work, you can still easily get away with it but doing HIIT or hardcore training or lifting in the gym, this can have fatal consequences as well. A person can become unconscious due to lesser air being received during exercise and can injure himself. The training mask could even make you perform in a poor way due to interference with your breathing. Add heavy lifting to this insanity, which some people surprisingly do, you are cooking a recipe for disaster. If you really want to build higher endurance or say get better at utilizing oxygen, do two things: 1. Train for aerobic performance and adaptations. 2. Practice more breathing techniques that help you hold more air in your system when exercising. Want to get high altitude training adaptations? Go train at higher altitudes aka in the mountains. These high-altitude masks do nothing and may potentially harm you if you use it in the gym. Oh, the one advantage it has is that it will make a cool Instagram picture and make you look like Bane or Darth Vader inside the gym.

  13. It's that time of the year again when I go through my ritual of sending out PSAs to my non-Christian brethren to not go around wishing people a 'Happy Good Friday' and give high-fives saying “Yeah! Good Friday wala long weekend! Whooo!” The sad part is that despite my numerous attempts, through the years, there are always those select handful of morons who manage to fill my Whatsapp chats and social media feeds with a “Hey Marina, Happy Good Friday. Have a good one.” I can't even… via GIPHY Honestly, the mind just reels at the stupidity! What does it take for these people to get it? So, this year, I am taking my PSA responsibilities to the next level and am writing this article, to inform all you wonderful people, that walking around wishing Christians a 'Happy Good Friday' is probably the rudest and most disrespectful thing you could ever do. Now, I firmly believe that no one is doing this intentionally. Because if you ARE doing that, then my friend, the Lord save you. But I do believe that's it's clearly a simple matter of lack of information, which is making people say so. I mean, I get it. It has the word 'good' in it, so naturally, it's something to be celebrated, right? Sorry guys, but no. It, in fact, is one of the most solemn and sorrowful days for the Christian community across the globe. © Icon Productions Good Friday commemorates the day Jesus Christ was crucified to death in the most brutal way imaginable. The Bible says that Jesus was mercilessly beaten up, tortured and then made to carry his own cross on which he was crucified. Watch 'The Passion of Christ' to get a better idea. Yes, what's so 'good' about this entire thing, right? Clearly 'Sad Friday' would have been more apt. But there is a reason for Christ's suffering being labelled as 'good'. Now, I don't want to go into the whole logistics where the Oxford English Dictionary states that 'good' in this particular context, refers to “a day or season observed as Holy by the Church.” Instead, I want to show you the bigger picture and the deeper meaning behind Good Friday. We Christians firmly believe that Christ sacrificed himself to show his love for mankind. On Good Friday, we remember, according to 1 John 1:10, the day Jesus willingly died as the ultimate sacrifice for our sins. His suffering and inhuman death, as extremely terrible as it was, was God's incredible plan to save all mankind, even though he had to sacrifice his one and only son. © Icon Productions I imagine if I was there that day Jesus died, I would have probably agreed with most of you lot and questioned what was so good about that day. All hope was lost, Satan was clearly having a party and evil had triumphed. But a few days later, something happened that turned the tables around. Good Friday is followed by Easter, the glorious day Jesus rose from the dead, marking his victory over sin and showing a future full of promise and forgiveness, for all those who believed in him. As terrible as the day was, Good Friday paved the way for mankind's salvation, which is marked as 'good' by us Christians. We humans are not capable of erasing all our sins and guilt, but Christ did the unimaginable and died for us. © Reuters Most Christians around the world spend the day in prayer and fasting and confessing their sins, as they prepare for the Easter celebrations. So there you go, I really, really, really hope I have successfully made you guys understand the meaning and the significance of this day. And here's hoping I don't see any 'Happy Good Friday' messages on my feed anymore!
  14. The wait has finally ended. Winter came at 6:30 am IST on Hotstar, with the 'Game of Thrones' Season 8 premiere airing after more than 500 days since last season concluded. Almost all living characters got screen time as multiples storylines seem to be coming together for one last time.' Please don't read any further if you haven't watched the episode yet, as this post contains heavy spoilers. As usual, there was death, there was *** and there certainly were dragons. Whitewalkers remained out of sight but did send some strong messages. The internet, no wonder, was abuzz with multiple theories, predictions and memes. But one particular Reddit user called DukeOfTheVines drew parallels between the pilot of the first season and the latest Season 8 instalment. Here it goes: “The opening shot of the King/Queen arriving with the same music” According to the redditor, the same track plays in the background of Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen's arrival in Winterfell as to the one at the time of Robert Baratheon's entrance in Season 1 Episode 1. © HBO The tunes do bear resemblance, and why not? The Iranian-German composer Ramin Djawadi, who had composed 'The King's Arrival' in the show's debut season, has returned to lend tunes to the final one as well. “Arya being a kid watching the King coming vs her letting a kid get a good view of the Queen coming” Arya Stark is shown rejoicing at her brother (not by blood anymore) Jon Snow's return. The duo was thick as thieves while growing up and has reunited after their lives have come full circle. In fact the 'girl with no name' still carries the sword (Needle) that Jon gave her as a kid. © HBO “Both episodes ending with Bran and Jamie, except this time Jamie looks scared” This has to be my favourite scene from the season. A cloaked Jamie Lannister arrives on a horse to Winterfell only to find Bran Stark, now the greenseer and also the boy who Jamie pushed out from a tower, waiting for him. You can actually feel the fear in Jamie's eyes at the sight. © HBO “Both episodes have amputated limbs from the white walkers spread out in a gory way to send a message” The heir of Hosue Umber, Ned was found decapitated with limbs all around him in this episode. Remember the first ever GoT episode where the White Walkers make their first "artwork" and create a symbol in the snow using the dismembered body parts of the slaughtered wildlings? “In the pilot, Cersi and Catelyn Stark talk about their kids possibly getting married while looking at them from a distance, while in this episode Varys, Tyrion, and Davos talk about Dany and Jon getting married while looking at them from a distance” While the idea of Jon and Dany's potential romance is exciting (and really not taboo considering the incestuous history of House Lannister), the foreboding metaphor in the episode is 'nothing lasts forever.' Let's see how this one goes, especially after Sam's conversation with Jon (or Aegon?). “The kid from the beginning was climbing on trees to get a good view, similar to Bran climbing the castle to get a good view. He also looked similar to Bran in the Pilot” Will the kid also end up losing limbs? “In the Pilot, all the shots of Winterfell showed the grass but now it's all snow” Winter has come? Other interesting observations made by Redditors: /u/Itsgreenarrow: Also S1E1 Ned's farewell to Jon he says “the next time we see each other, We will talk about your mother. I promise.” Then S8E1 while Jon is staring at Ned's tomb Sam tell him about his parents /u/friggindiggin: First episode Jon is distraught over his identity crisis as a bastard. This episode Jon is distraught over his identity crisis as a king. /u/enfinnity: The brothel scene with Bron is similar to Tyrion's first scene /u/JaqueStrap69: Also Jon asking Sansa "Where's Arya?" When he arrived, just like Ned asking "Where's Arya?" /u/ChavaF1: The current ruler of Winterfell saying “Winterfell is yours” to the arriving monarch /u/sarahj2010: Also loved the line from Robert Baratheon in the pilot to Ned 'I have a son, you have a daughter, we shall join our houses'. It's gotta be Arya and Gendry. /u/SaiyanAintSo: Also Sansa being more than wary of Dany, much like Catelyn was of Cersei. She really seemed like her mother in that meet and greet. © HBO /u/Dualstack: Also Robert asking Ned to be his hand in the crypts kind of similar to Sam telling Jon he is king in the crypts /u/Skeetronic: Don't forget Cersei putting out to someone she's not 'loyal' to But isn't that the norm for Cersei? What were your big observations from the premiere5? Let us know in the comments.
  15. The curse is finally over, ladies and gentleman! Virat Kohli's Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) have finally won their first IPL match of the twelfth season and looked really good while doing so, too. After Ravichandran Ashwin's King XI Punjab (KXIP) set a respectable total of 173 on their home ground at the Punjab Cricket Association Stadium in Mohali, behind an excellent knock played by Chris 'Universe Boss' Gayle (99 not out), it was time for Kohli and gang to try and chase it down. RCB openers AB de Villiers and Kohli, himself, walked down to the pitch with an aggressive mindset from the beginning and managed to keep the assertion alive for the better half of the second innings, which helped the 'Play Bold' army seal the deal in the final overs. Forming yet another successful partnership, Kohli (67 off 53) and de Villiers (59 not out) were finally able to help the team “cross that line” as the skipper mentioned in an interview after the match. In a different feature video uploaded on the Indian Premier League's official website, it was the South African who held the microphone for the Indian captain for a brief Q&A during which de Villiers asked Kohli about the reasons behind the 30-year-old is. AB's kids knock Anushka and Virat's door at the hotel every morning to wake them up and wish them good morning. "The best thing that has happened to me is me getting married", Virat got me gushing over them again. 'Stability, balance & good wives' https://t.co/T03I8FnjT6 — m (@Manasa2922x) April 14, 2019 “I think over the last year or so, the best thing to have happened to me is me getting married. It has literally changed my whole world,” he said. “I have the most beautiful wife, the most beautiful person and that has been the strongest factor in my life.” “It has changed the way I was before, I was too intense in life but she always keeps me motivated and positive,” Kohli showed appreciation towards Anushka Sharma. “I could not have been luckier to have someone who understands my mindset being in that position herself.” “'Stability, balance and a good wife' is a good life,” said the former Proteas leader in the end.
  16. The biggest movie of month/year/decade is just a few days away and all the fans are so excited and hyped up for it, and so are the actors who are a part of Avengers and MCU. Everyone's gearing up for the movie in different ways, from coming up with different theories for 'Avengers: Endgame' to basically having meltdowns about the possible deaths. And some, very important fans are making parodies and making everyone laugh, maybe because this movie will for sure kill us. Jaze Phua turned the second trailer, the one that showed Tony back on earth and joining all the surviving Avengers in that hideous new white suit. Turning it into a 'Client Expectation vs Client Budget' meme, the low-budget video is actually very hilarious. It also reminds me of a low budget version of the 'Avengers: Infinity War' trailer from last year. There are so many great funny moments, I mean, look at the recreation of the plane! Literally everything going on in this gif. How they can - and should - rebuild Asgard. What is he even doing here? The chicken and obviously another creative moment. This is the moment that killed me, the fucking Nokia phone! They're doing Nebula dirty with that blue bag. This parody was so brilliant even Mark Ruffalo had to appreciate this, and yes, I agree, so much like the original, isn't it? Struggling to see the difference between these two #AvengersEndgame trailers ð¤ Brilliant work, @jazephua! pic.twitter.com/8d22vDdf4a — Mark Ruffalo (@MarkRuffalo) April 8, 2019 Wholesome. THANK YOU @MarkRuffalo !!! â¤ï¸ Looking forward to see Professor Hulk!

This should be the trailer before the movie. Because we need to laugh before crying... Perfectly balanced. — Maríaâ¡ (@Caryl_83) April 8, 2019
  17. Once you've decided and made up your mind that you are going to lose some fat this summer, a particularly tricky question is bound to pop up in your mind. Should You Do Cardio Or Lift More Weights To Burn More Body Fat? You will get lots of random information for this question with some weird logic attached to them. So, to solve this problem for you I am going to give you the correct answer with a logical explanation. Which Form Will Burn More Number Calories For You? The first thing you need to understand for fat loss is that you need to create a deficit in your daily calorie intake. This deficit can be created in two ways, first is to reduce the number of calorie intake and second is to increase the number of calories burned. Right now, I am just going to talk about the second one. To burn more calories you will have to work out for at least 5-6 days in a week. Now, what should you choose as a medium of exercise, cardio or weights? Let me tell you something that will help you to make the choice easier. You will burn more calories in a single session of cardio exercise as compared to a single session of weight training. via GIPHY Now I am sure that you would be thinking that cardio is a clear choice as it will help you to burn more calories per session. Well, here is what you missed. Though cardio will burn a number of calories for you inside the gym once you step outside it is weight training that will help you more. When you do resistance training, your body will start building muscles which will have a greater impact on your metabolic rate than cardio alone. Cardio Alone Could Create Problems Trying to lose weight by performing only cardio session may prove to be really harmful to you in the long run. People who try to reduce their weight quickly using cardio exercises are the ones who later on complain about having loose skin. They lose fat but their skin becomes loose and soggy. People who weight train are able to build muscles and thus their chances of having loose skin after fat loss becomes less. Secondly, long duration cardio sessions multiple times a week are going to cost you dear on the joints. People who perform long runs of treadmill almost every day complain about having knee and other joint pains. And thirdly, cardio alone could also lead to muscles loss and chronic fatigue. © Getty Images What Should You Do? You will find people out there who will bash cardio completely. They will tell you that stepping on a treadmill is like a sin inside the gym. Here's my perspective as a coach: Cardio can be included in your workout program if you plan it smartly. Your first priority should always be to train every muscle group with weights at least once a week. Now if you still have some time left that you can spend in the gym, you may include a couple of small cardio sessions every week. These sessions can be included to build up good endurance stamina as well. The way you like to balance it is your personal choice, but yes, resistance training should always be your priority.

  18. Almost all the Apple Products come with one year warranty against manufacturing defects and hardware failures. If you send in your defected device that's under warranty, then Apple will repair it, or in same cases, even replace it with a new one. Yes, the company is known to be very generous at that. However, two Chinese students attending college in Oregon have scammed Apple by taking advantage of the company's repair policy. So, the con was very simple. Yangyang Zhou and Quan Jiang, two engineering students allegedly brought in thousand of fake iPhones, sent them to Apple filing warranty complaints and got band new 'genuine' iPhones in return. The new iPhones were then sent back to their friends and relatives in China to flip for profit. © Pexels Yup, Apple, out of all the companies, fell for this con. But hey, you can't blame the company for being nice with replacement phones, plus these counterfeit iPhones have come to closely resemble the real thing, right? According to the prosecutors, the duo submitted a total of 3,069 iPhones under warranty claims, and got back close to 1,500 new iPhones as replacement units. With a loss of $600 per iPhone, Apple calculates that it lost close to $900,000, which roughly translates to about Rs 6.25 crores. The rest of the iPhones, in case you're wondering, were rejected for tampering, and they were sent back with letters explaining why the warranty claims were declined. The federal prosecutors have charged Jiang with trafficking counterfeit goods and wire fraud. Zhou, on the other hand, was accused of submitting false information on export documentation. The agents got tipped of this fraud in April 2017 when they opened five suspicious packages enroute from Hong Kong containing phones with counterfeit marking. In their defense, both students have claimed that they didn't know the phones were counterfeits. But, c'mon, no one's going to buy that.
  19. Malai is a cooking ingredient that you all must be familiar with. It's the creamy substance that's produced after heating non-homogenized whole milk to boiling point for about one hour and then allowing it to cool. The thick yellowish layer of fat that rises to the surface, which is skimmed off and use for other dairy food is your basic malai. However, instead of eating it and using it in other dishes, you can also apply it on your face because there are tonnes of benefits of this dairy product for your skin: 1. Malai Softens The Skin © Thinkstock/Getty Images Malai's smooth texture softens dried skin by rejuvenating the skin cells. Wear malai on the face as a mask or mix the malai with milk and turmeric for a compact mask. 2. Malai Tightens Pores © Thinkstock/Getty Images Besides removing dirt from skin, malai can also tighten the pores, so if you have troubles like acne caused by loose pores, applying malai for about 15 minutes tightens the pores. 3. Malai Brightens The Skin © Thinkstock/Getty Images Malai can brighten the skin upon regular application. For a weekly mask: mix malai with a few drops of lemon juice and apply it on the skin for about 15 minutes. 4. Malai Removes Tan © Thinkstock/Getty Images To get rid of the tan, apply malai on your face and allow it to stay for a while. Rinse it with water. A thick paste of malai and besan will give you better results.
  20. Even though 'Shazam' isn't a very well known superhero from the DC universe, the newly released movie has surprised the audience in a fantabulous way.

  21. 1. Exfoliation Is Key © Getty Images © Getty Images There are exclusive face scrubs in the market for men in any departmental store or even online. Form a habit of using the scrub right before you shave every time. Dab some on your fingers and gently work it on your face. This not only helps with making the shave smooth and removes tan as well. 2. Witch Hazel As A Toner © Getty Images Witch hazel as a toner comforts the skin after a close shave and prevents nicks. You'll be surprised by realizing how the number of nicks you usually get begin going down once you start using this. 3. Moisturizing Is Key © Getty Images Sometimes, your daily moisturizer can be your best aftershave if you don't want to spend extra money on an aftershave. Dab it on your fingers and work it gently with your fingertips and see the difference. 4. The Cold Water Hack © Getty Images Here's a secret: post-shave, never wash your face with the same hot/lukewarm water you used while taking a shower. Instead, wash your face with cold water as it will close your pores and immediately tighten your facial skin. This means fewer wrinkles so you don't have to worry about ageing. 5. Keep The Strokes Short © Getty Images One hack that you might be aware of already is that you should always keep your strokes short. Instead of going for long-drawn-out strokes, go for short sharp strokes for a clean cut. 6. Substitute Baby Oil For Shaving Cream © Getty Images If you've run out of both shaving cream and hair conditioner, do it in the shower while using lukewarm water. That will open up your pores, soften the tough bristles of your whiskers and give a close shave. 7. For Nicks And Cuts Use Fitkaris © Getty Images Fitkari is extremely handy for nicks and cuts, better than using a tissue paper! You can even use a pinch of lip balm. Just dab some on the cut and you're good to go. 8. Wear The Shaving Cream For At Least Five Minutes © Getty Images A good hack to avoid razor burns is to let the shaving cream sit for at least five minutes. This prevents the red spots from coming back. It works better if you use a quality shaving cream as opposed to foam.
  22. People say, "your past will always come back to haunt you." But, this is 2019--a time in our lives which is heavily dominated by social media. So, in today's world, your past doesn't haunt you, but comes back to make you break the internet and trend on social media for absolutely no reason.

  23. Considering the fact that it's the first thing we put on in the morning as we get ready to face the day, it's almost criminal how little thought we put into picking out our underwear. The same applies to underwear shopping as well - most of us just grab the same type we always buy, without so much as a second thought, and repeat the same process time after time. After all, it's only underwear, right? No one else is going to see it, so what difference does it make if it's the same style (and sometimes even colour!) that you've been wearing for years? Well, we've got a newsflash for you! Picking out your underwear is one of the most personal and private decisions you can make when it comes to menswear. After all, you wear it right next to your skin all day. It plays a vital role in ensuring that you feel comfortable throughout the day regardless of what you're doing. Making the wrong choice leaves you open to a whole host of annoying problems including excessive sweating, irritating itchiness, and repeated adjustments. So, unless you're okay with spending the whole day with your hands stuffed down your pants, it's high time you paid as much attention to what's going into your underwear drawer as you do to the other contents of your closet. That's not to say that underwear shopping has to be boring, pricey, or time-consuming. A little knowledge about the variety of underwear options available to you is all it takes to ensure your comfort every day. That's exactly what we hope to provide with this extensive guide to the best underwear for men, which will make underwear shopping as comfortable and satisfying an experience as the products themselves. But First, A 'Brief' Guide To Buying Your Briefs: 1) Fit: Ill-fitting underwear can play havoc with your daily routine, which is why it's extremely important to pick up the right size of underwear (especially if you're experimenting with different brands). If it's too large, you'll spend the whole day pulling them up. If it's too small, it'll cut off the blood supply to your nether regions, and you don't need us to tell you that that's not a pleasant sensation! 2) Fabric: Cotton is the tried and tested material here, but there has been a lot of innovation in this department in recent times, which means there are many more options. Various other cotton blends and fibres come with their own pros and cons. For a luxurious experience, you might indulge in some silk boxer shorts. Similarly, spandex or lycra trunks underneath your workout attire or mesh or lenzing modal underwear with your running shorts is a smart choice. 3) Colour: The world of men's fashion is ever-changing, and you're not limited to solid colours or simple stripes or checks any more. An attractive print might catch your partner's eye when things get hot and heavy in the bedroom. You can also sport printed boxers bearing the logo of your favourite superheroes or cartoon characters during a weekend movie marathon. Just be sure you don't mix up the two! 4) Brand: When it comes to underwear, most men tend to have a fierce loyalty towards a particular brand. We're not saying there's anything wrong with that, we just recommend keeping an open mind. Who knows, you might be missing out on the perfect fit or style by refusing to try out another brand's offerings! So there you have it, guys - it's time for an underwear overhaul. Broaden your horizons and restock your underwear drawer with a variety of styles, fits, colours and fabrics based on your particular needs! Looking For The Best Underwear For Men? Here's A Helpful Guide 1. Saxx Men's Fiesta Boxers © Amazon Let's start on an upbeat note with a literal party in your pants, with these Fiesta boxers from Saxx. The design is the result of a collaboration between rally driver and Saxx ambassador Ken Block, Hoonigan Racing Division and kinetic street artist Felipe Pantone. The design is the most striking feature, as Block's colourful official FIA World Rallycross Championship race livery has been digitally printed on the waistband. Not only is it eye-catching, it's supremely comfortable as well. When you consider how much time you spend concentrating on the race while seated in a cramped space, comfort is a feature you'd expect the manufacturers to address. Along with the mesh side panels, the cotton in the fabric is moisture-wicking, so you're kept cool at all times. The viscose is not only smooth and doesn't trap body heat, but also retains its colour very well thereby ensuring the longevity of the boxers. They also include an “articulated contour pouch,” an extremely handy feature which effectively holds everything in place at all times. Combined with the anti-roll waistband, we're sure you'll agree that these are some of the most eye-catching and comfortable pairs of men's underwear you can get your hands on!

This six-pack of classic briefs is available in a grey and black colour tone, which means that you can wear them with any outfit.

These are also a great option when it comes to cotton underwear for men who value their comfort, because they're made from pure ringspun cotton, which is an incredibly soft fabric.

  24. If you have a receding hairline that worries you at night and keeps you insecure in the day, then here's something that you could consider. Hairline tattoos, once unheard of, have recently come to the mainstream and for a good reason. © Getty Images Hairline tattoos, also known as scalp micropigmentation, is an advanced procedure for cosmetic pigmentation. Just like traditional tattooing, the needle injects pigments in the scalp in a minimally invasive procedure. © Getty Images Hair loss is one of the most popular and feared natural progression that men face. Other than treating it, or slowing it down, there are a number of expensive procedures like a hair transplant or getting an expensive product that seeks to maintain the hair you currently have. Scalp pigmentation varies from these options and provides you with a look that is unique and specially tailored to your skin tone and hair colour. © Getty Images It's not just a tattoo on your head, the process of scalp micropigmentation is very different from tattooing. It just looks like it's the same from a distance. Keeping in mind the needle and kind of ink used, a tattoo needle is large, making it imprecise for replicating the look and texture of hair follicles. Hairline tattoos use a microneedle that looks precisely like hair, and not a painted-on dot like most people assume. Tattoos, in fact, go a total of five layers deep into the skin, while micropigmentation on the other hand, only goes two layers deep. The reason for this is because the deeper pigment goes into the skin, the more likely it is to lose its round shape and spread out, resulting in an unnatural look. By keeping the pigmentation shallow, the look is controlled with the ability of the practitioner to shape it, while keeping it deep enough to maintain permanence. © Getty Images What Research Should You Be Equipped With? Like most procedures, an important detail to consider prior to treatment is the equipment used and the experience of the practitioners. A number of places do scalp micropigmentation, but the equipment used varies. So we're talking patching hair growth, in congruent hairline or a receding hairline, and the tattoos cater to all these deficits. How Does This Treatment Work? After deciding the style that you want and setting your expectations from the procedure, the treatment takes a couple of sessions to start with.
  25. After the first Hyderabad-based Indian Premier League franchise, the Deccan Chargers was terminated in 2012, SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) rose from the ashes like a phoenix with new ownership, more money and a shiny new colour-scheme for their jersey. Having made their official debut in the 2013 season of the IPL, SRH have seen their fair share of ups and downs as a whole. Starting out strong, the squad went on to become one of the most successful teams that season as it qualified for the Playoffs under the captaincy of Sri Lankan legend Kumar Sangakkara and India's Shikhar Dhawan. The roster went on to spiral down the points table in the next two seasons finding themselves to be the sixth best (or third worst) team of the league in 2014 and 2015. However, under the leadership of Aussie batsman David Warner, SRH reached their true potential in 2016. As Warner had his best season in the Indian Twenty20 league, pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar became the first of his squad to win the honorary Purple Cap for his distinguished bowling expertise that season. It was also the only season which brought the title to Hyderabad ever since the Deccan Chargers won it in 2009. In the 2018 season, SRH consisted of some world class talents in their corner. Even though David Warner was retained and appointed as the captain, he refused to accept this role after being found guilty of the infamous ball-tampering case in South Africa that summer. The Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI) later disbarred Warner from participating in the league that season altogether. Good luck to my friends @SunRisers play well tonight. pic.twitter.com/GpYYLDLXeJ — David Warner (@davidwarner31) April 9, 2018 “Good luck to my friends @SunRisers play well tonight,” he tweeted ahead of his team's 2018 season-opening game against the reinstated Rajasthan Royals. The captaincy was then given to Kane Williamson, the Kiwi skipper who went on to have a brilliant batting season and ended up winning the Orange Cap whilst scoring 735 runs. The SunRisers went on to qualify for the Playoffs and into the final where they fought hard against Mahendra Singh Dhoni's Chennai Super Kings (CSK) that had been reinstated following a two-year ban due to player-involvement in the 2013 IPL betting scandal. Following some excellent innings played by skipper Williamson and Yusuf Pathan, it was Chennai's Shane Watson who scored an unbeaten 117 runs to crush their dreams of winning another title as CSK won the final with eight wickets and nine balls to spare and lifted the cup for a record third time making them the most successful IPL team alongside Rohit Sharma's Mumbai Indians. However, SRH's dedication and combined team-effort in the heartbreaking loss did gain high words of praise from the master blaster, Sachin Tendulkar himself, who tweeted: Hard luck @SunRisers. You really played well, displayed quality team work and thoroughly deserved to be in the finals. You can proudly hold your heads high. pic.twitter.com/IWG7h9tGTb — Sachin Tendulkar (@sachin_rt) May 27, 2018 Looking to get back to their winning ways in the twelfth season of the league, SunRisers Hyderabad spent a meagre Rs. 4.40 crores out of their budget of Rs. 9.70 crores in buying Jonny Bairstow (Rs 2.2cr), Wriddhiman Saha (Rs 1.2cr), Martin Guptill (Rs 1cr), while retaining the main athletes from previous season like Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Deepak Hooda, Manish Pandey, and Sandeep Sharma. Squad: Kane Williamson (c), Manish Pandey, Martin Guptill, Ricky Bhui, David Warner, Deepak Hooda, Mohammad Nabi, Yusuf Pathan, Shakib Al Hasan, Abhishek Sharma, Vijay Shankar, Sreevats Gowsami, Jonny Bairstow, Wriddhiman Saha, Siddarth Kaul, Khaleel Ahmed, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rashid Khan, Basil Thampi, Billy Stanlake, T Natarajan, Sandeep Sharma, Shahbaz Nadeem.
