ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsAfter coming to terms with Bangladesh's spectacular triumph over West Indies yesterday, cricket fans were in for another treat as England locked horns with Afghanistan at Old Trafford, Manchester on 18th June in the ongoing ICC World Cup. While few would have backed Afghanistan to come out on top against the hosts, no one really expected Eoin Morgan to go all guns blazing in what arguably one of the finest innings of his career. The England captain smashed a breathtaking 148 runs off a mere 71 deliveries, including four fours and a staggering 17 sixes. Electing to bat, the hosts got off to a decent start before losing James Vince (26) in the 10th over. A 120-run partnership between Jonny Bairstow (90) and Joe Root (88) for the second wicket further piled up misery on Afghanistan. The Gulbadin Naib-led team did get some relief after Bairstow's dismissal in the 30th over, but they couldn't have possibly predicted what Morgan had in store for them. © Reuters Coming out to bat, with England poised for a big total at 164/2, the England captain hammered the opposition bowlers all around the park with disdain. The 32-year-old brought up his maiden World Cup hundred in a mere 57 balls wherein he had also slammed 11 sixes. He missed out on reaching the 150-run mark by a mere two runs after getting caught at long-off in the 47th over. We have witnessed one of the all-time great World Cup innings today.#EoinMorgan walked off to a fully deserved standing ovation after his 71-ball 148 ð #CWC19 | #ENGvAFG pic.twitter.com/ppRMFM2oMS — Cricket World Cup (@cricketworldcup) June 18, 2019 Apart from reaching 150, while Morgan also missed out on beating Jason Roy's record (153 runs) of the highest score at the ongoing tourney, he still etched his name in the history books with the fourth fastest hundred in a World Cup match. He is only behind Kevin O'Brien, Glenn Maxwell and AB de Villiers on the elite list. Ireland's Kevin O'Brien holds the record for the fastest World Cup hundred off 50 balls - ironically, it had come against England in a record run chase in 2011. Australia's Glenn Maxwell has the 2nd fastest World Cup hundred off 51 balls while former South Africa batsman AB de Villers is 3rd in the list with a hundred off 55 balls. 6ï¸â£ 6ï¸â£ 6ï¸â£ 6ï¸â£ 6ï¸â£ 6ï¸â£ 6ï¸â£ 6ï¸â£ 6ï¸â£ 6ï¸â£ 6ï¸â£ 6ï¸â£ 6ï¸â£ 6ï¸â£ 6ï¸â£ 6ï¸â£ 6ï¸â£ #EoinMorgan hit 102 runs JUST in sixes!#CWC19 | #CWC19 pic.twitter.com/E3iLLTNs1h — Cricket World Cup (@cricketworldcup) June 18, 2019 On the other hand, Morgan's tally of 17 sixes - wherein seven came against proven Rashid Khan - allowed him to break the record for most maximums in a single ODI innings. The record was earlier held jointly by Rohit Sharma, AB de Villiers and Chris Gayle - each of whom slammed 16 sixes during their respective innings. After Morgan's blitzkrieg, the home fans were also treated to a quickfire knock from Moeen Ali who smashed a nine-ball 31 at a strike-rate of over 344, including four sixes and a four. Thanks to a spectacular batting show, England managed to post a formidable of 397 runs in their quota of 50 overs.
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsBilly Porter, the 'Pose' star has served us one look after the other this year. Starting with the Oscars where he wore a tuxedo gown, which was an iconic outfit, he's decided to keep up with his out-of-the-world outfits. For the Met Gala this year, Billy Porter arrived on the red carpet dressed as an Egyptian winged pharaoh. The almost diva-like entrance was carried out by the six shirtless attendants who carried Billy Porter on a plank while strutting on the red carpet. © Getty Images Imagine the grand entrance for a second. Wouldn't you want an entry like that? After entering, Porter unfurled the wings that spread out into a big spectacle. © Getty Images Considering that the theme for the Met Gala was 'Camp', which was all about being out of this world and unnatural artifice, it looks like Billy Porter nailed it. © Getty Images Porter spoke to a leading publication and said “Camp means irreverence,” he added, "Camp means as hugely over-the-top and grand and what some may feel is ridiculous and silly, and embracing all of those creative impulses inside us that very often are squelched.” he said. Take a look: © Getty Images The reason why this stands out is because it is so out of the ordinary and aligns with the theme, 'camp' perfectly.
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsAction movies are a great watch if you're really into some heavy duty stuff. I know a lot of peeps love spending a lot of time doing some crazy action movie marathons. But we've all seen those marathons, haven't we? Be it 'Die Hard' or the 'Bourne Series' or even 'Kill Bill', 'Terminator' etc. we've cued them together sometime in our life and binge watched them till we've had enough! © Warner Bros. Pictures But let's just focus on the lesser known action flicks you can spend your weekend watching instead . After all, it's our job to make your weekend a bit more interesting isn't it? Here are 7 underrated action flicks you can cue for the weekend. (1) IP Man (2008) © Mandarin Films 'IP Man' is a biographical martial arts movie based on the life of IP man, the grandmaster of martial arts-Wing Chun, who was also Bruce Lee's teacher. The modern classic action flick truly has us believing that Donnie Yen can take on an entire mob all my himself! Definitely watch this one if you're heavy into martial arts. (2) Ong Bak 2: The beginning (2009) © Sahamongkol Film International 'Ong Bak 2' is a follow up to the first part- Muay Thai Warrior and as the name suggests it's another Thai martial arts movie starring Tony Jaa. Although the names are the same, 'Ong Bak 2' has nothing much to do with the first part and is set in 15th Century Thailand, and is a fully fledged take on a historical epic, with a few elements of fantasy combined. 'Ong Bak 2' remains the single best showcase for Jaa's abilities as a great martial artist. You can literally see him beating up half the population of Thailand, with the help of his partner of course! (3) Haywire (2011) © Relativity Media With a kickass cast, 'Haywire' is a great watch if you want some sorted action flick for the weekend. Directed by Steven Soderbergh, the movie revolves around Mallory Kane (Gina Carano), who works for a company that handles sensitive 'black operations'. The movie is in the same vein as the Bourne franchise , with more understated and fierce fight scenes. Gina Carano gives a stellar performance though, with her willingness to perform her own stunts, giving the actions sequences more authenticity. (4) Dredd (2012) © Lionsgate 'Dredd' is based on the 2000 AD comic strip Judge Dredd and if you've read the comics you'd know how classic this movie really is. Directed by Pete Travis, the movie unfortunately didn't fair too well because it released simultaneously with 'The Dark Knight Rises' and 'The Avengers'. But fans will remain faithful of course since it's the best adaptation of the Judge Dredd comics. (5) The Grey (2012) © Open Road Films 'The Grey' is directed by Joe Carnahan and it stars Liam Neeson, Frank Grilo and Dermont Mulroney. The story is about number of 'oil-men', stranded in Alaska after a plane crash, who have to fight grey wolves who're out to get them amidst extremely cold weather conditions! The movie is the fight for survival and no one could have done it better than Neeson himself. I mean, he's the only middle-aged action hero who still looks good on camera and this movie surely falls in the same league as 'Taken'! (6) Edge Of Tomorrow (2014) © Warner Bros. Pictures 'Edge of Tomorrow' is a science fiction film starring Emily Blunt and Tom Cruise. The screenplay is adapted from a Japanese novel called 'All You Need Is Kill'. The film is futuristic and shows most of Europe invaded by Aliens. With some great action sequences, the film deserved a lot more love than it got back in 2014. But it's a great watch regardless. (7) Everly (2015) © Dimension Films The film has Salma Hayek, who obviously steals the show any given day! The film didn't have a chance to make it in the league of some popular action movies but it definitely has Hayek proving that she can play a gun-toting action heroine without any trouble. The movie revolves around her being a *** slave for the brutal Japanese criminal overlord Taiko, until Taiko realises she's been working with the police to bring his cartel down. So we've given you one busy weekend in front of your television sets/laptops, to binge watch these crazy and very underrated action movies. If you make out alive by the end of the weekend, you know you've had a successful run!
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsAll those people who think that women are the more emotional ones and that women let their feelings cloud their judgement, should see a Chinese guy's over the top emotional reaction to a woman rejecting his public marriage proposal. A 'crazy rich Asian' proposed to a girl with a Lamborghini only to be rejected, because money isn't everything and she's not a gold-digger. When you ask someone to marry you, the other person has the option of saying yes or no, right? So, you need to be prepared for the unfavourable outcome as well, and not throw tantrums when things don't go according to your plan. © Asia Wire Moreover, if you have to bring in some sort of incentive to get the other person to say yes, then you've already lost, sorry. The only reason this guy bought an orange Lamborghini was to increase his chances and he knew it. Come on, man, love can't be bought. © Asia Wire “I bought your favourite sports car for you.” “I'm so sorry, I don't want to. I'm so sorry.” © Asia Wire It's pretty clear that she's not interested. What do you do now? Accept the answer or make a huge scene? The guy went on to say, “I have money! I can buy as many of these cars as you like. I can buy whatever you want. Marry me! Marry me!” © Asia Wire The woman is still polite and turns him down again calmly, but he remains persistent and it starts getting annoying. She has had enough and kind of snaps at him, saying “You have money, so what?” and walks off. © Asia Wire But, the drama doesn't end there. The poor little rich guy's tantrums continue, and he throws a bouquet at the camera before destroying the products that were on display behind him. © Asia Wire Well, at least he didn't take out the anger on the car, that would've been sadder. Moral of the story – don't be like this guy!
