  1. In India, criminal accused and undertrials seem to get a free pass when it comes to contesting elections and positioning themselves as people’s representatives and leaders. As blasphemous as the idea might seem, it is unfortunately something even the Supreme Court can't meddle with. This situation may seem a lot gloomy, but the fact of the matter is that the situation may not see any considerable change, as long as political parties keep offering election tickets to individuals with criminal cases against them, as well as until voters fail to make informed choices when it comes to picking their representatives. Don’t believe how common or widespread this practice is in the Indian political scene? Read about these five people who contested elections despite having criminal charges against them, or serving jail time as undertrials. 1. Anant Singh © TimesNow/PTI He is a don-turned-politician from Mokama who is contesting this year on an RJD ticket in the upcoming Bihar elections. Popularly known as Chhote Sarkar in the area, Lalu Prasad Yadav had gotten him arrested in a kidnap and murder case years ago. Even now, Singh is in Bihar’s Beur jail under an UAPA case which was filed against him after weapons including AK-47 were found from his residence in 2019. 2. Shambhulal Regar © Twitter/scroll in Remember the guy from 2017 who was filmed lynching a migrant worker in Rajasthan and setting him on fire? Yes, that guy reportedly got a ticket to contest the Lok Sabha 2019 general elections from Rampur on a ticket from Uttar Pradesh’s Navnirman Sena. With charges under nine sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Information Technology (IT) Act against him, he was lodged at the Jodhpur Central Jail as an undertrial when he was given the ticket. 3. K Surendran © keralakaumudi When news broke that Mr Sudrendran had surfaced as Kerala's leading 2019 Lok Sabha candidate with 240 criminal cases against himself, many found it hard to believe. However, it turned out that the news was in fact true, and that the BJP candidate from Pathanamthitta parliamentary constituency had topped the list of those with criminal records contesting the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, followed by Congress’ Dean Kuriakose with 204 cases. 4. Arun Gawli © mumbaimirror Now, if you thought this is something that came into trend only recently, you’re wrong. More than a decade ago in 2009, gangster-turned-politician Arun Gawli was reported to have contested Assembly elections from jail as a Akhil Bharatiya Sena candidate from the new Byculla Assembly constituency. Gawli had been in Arthur Road jail since September 2008 under the stringent Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) in connection with an extortion case. 5. Pappu Yadav © TOI Who doesn’t know about the infamous Bihar leader and former Madhepura MP Pappu Yadav, aka Rajesh Ranjan. The head of Jan Adhikar Party (JAP) which was formed by him in 2015, is all set to contest the upcoming Bihar polls under a front called the Progressive Democratic Alliance (PDA) with Chandrashekhar Azad’s Azad Samaj Party wherein he aims to present himself as the CM candidate. It is a fact well known that in 2008, Pappu Yadav was sentenced to life imprisonment for ordering the killing of a rival politician Ajit Sarkar in 1998. He had continued to contest elections before finally walking out of jail on bail in 2017. This is perhaps the first thing that needs to change about Indian politics - criminals trying to be our representatives and leaders. View the full article
  2. Indian actress Malvi Malhotra was friends with the suspect for over a year, say police
  3. Once labelled as one of the most talented youngsters in India, KL Rahul rose through the ranks, not only cementing his spot in Team India, but also establishing himself as an indispensable asset at the top of the order. Anyone who's seen him bat would agree that, on his day, Rahul is a sight for the gods - tall, classical, elegant and wristy, a majestic presence at the batting crease. And, despite playing in a team full of prominent stars, Rahul's strokes are equally capable of rivalling Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma in both incandescence and impact - something that's quite visible in the Indian Premier League (IPL). © Twitter/@IPL The thirteenth edition of the IPL has witnessed Rahul leaving some of the biggest names in international cricket in his wake as he continues to amass runs. With a staggering 595 runs, including five fifties and a hundred, in 12 matches so far, Rahul has not only been carrying the baton for Kings XI Punjab (KXIP), but he's also leading the charts as this season's top run-getter. It's his ominous form that probably made him one of the first names to appear on the team sheet as Indian selectors announced the 32-man squad for the upcoming Australian tour. The Team India management and Sunil Joshi-led selection panel has been so impressed with the Karnataka batsman that he was also elevated to India's vice-captaincy in limited-overs series. ICYMI - #TeamIndia squads for three T20Is, three ODIs & four Test matches against Australia.#AUSvIND pic.twitter.com/HVloKk5mw0 — BCCI (@BCCI) October 26, 2020 While cricket fans were quite excited to see Rahul's name in the Indian squad, Sanjay Manjrekar didn't seem impressed by the BCCI's decision. Slamming the decision-makers, the Indian cricketer-turned-commentator claimed that Rahul's inclusion in the Indian Test squad will set a bad precedent for those sweating it out in domestic cricket. You set a bad precedent when you recall a player for Tests on IPL performance. Especially if the player has been an abject failure in his last few Tests. Whether that player succeeds or fails is irrelevant, such selections massively demotivate Ranji players. #INDvsAUS — Sanjay Manjrekar (@sanjaymanjrekar) October 27, 2020 "You set a bad precedent when you recall a player for Tests on IPL performance. Especially if the player has been an abject failure in his last few Tests. Whether that player succeeds or fails is irrelevant, such selections massively demotivate Ranji players," Manjrekar targetted Indian selectors on Twitter. For someone who can't seem to do any wrong in limited-overs cricket, Rahul has had quite an average outing in the longest version of the game. In his last five Test innings, Rahul has managed to score 46, 2, 9, 82 and 19 as opener for Team India. He might be included in the Test squad, but Rahul will probably be overlooked in favour of Prithvi Shaw as the first-choice opener alongside Mayank Agarwal. View the full article

  6. At a time when everyone else is scrambling to put together a collection, Manish Malhotra launched perhaps one of his most ambitious collections. Ruhaaniyat, he says, is close to his heart, for it took two years for him to curate and create this collection. © Manish Malhotra We spoke to Manish Malhotra during the Lakme Fashion Week, about the future of fashion shows in India, how was the experience of making a fashion film during a pandemic, and the greatest loves of his life - cinema and fashion. Edited Excerpts:According to you, which Bollywood icons are the ultimate style icons? I think Shammi Kapoor, Raj Kapoor, Dev Anand, all of them have been such great style icons. The attention they paid to little details, was just phenomenal. Furthermore, the way they carried their clothes, and their personas, was again, something else altogether. Then there is Amitabh Bachchan. I think he is a true blue style icon. The way he carries himself, the way he converses, the way he adapts - there is nobody like him. I have been fortunate enough to work with him for a couple of films, like Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, Baghban and a couple of others. I feel honoured. © Manish Malhotra How would you suggest designers and brands tackle this ‘new normal?’ I think every brand and designer’s approach should be to do less and to work on a lot more creative angles and present something new. This is the time to focus on quality over quantity. Also, they should try to venture into different aspects - maybe accessories, or a line of clothes that is easier to purchase and easier to wear. Also, if they have a story to tell or a narrative to share, that they were feared to express, this is the time to go out and just express. Everything about Indian traditions, arts and culture, needs that spotlight today, it needs to be celebrated. © Manish Malhotra Tell us something about Ruhaaniyat, your collection. We heard you spent quite some time working on it. Ruhaaniyat is extremely close to my heart because we have been working on it for two years now. We are celebrating 15 years of Manish Malhotra, the label, and 30 years of my work in cinema. © Manish Malhotra For Ruhaaniyat, I wanted to do something that I haven't done too much of before. I travelled to Jaipur, Udaipur, Delhi, Ahmedabad and many other places, to come up with a collection that was based on the traditional arts and crafts of India. That is the reason there are influences from Punjab, Mughal, Persian and Awadhi cultures. During the lockdown, I was taking stock of the collection and contemplating what else can be done. It was then that I asked myself, instead of launching it next year, why not launch it this year. © Manish Malhotra Fashion films have been huge this year. Do you think that this is the future of fashion shows, or will we go back to physical shows when things are more convenient? I cannot stress this enough but I have always had a special connection with films, I just love the art form. Fashion films have been a very interesting new medium to work with. I have truly and thoroughly enjoyed it. For me personally, this is the way to go. However, I do realise that when things allow us, most of us would like to go back to the physical shows. © Manish Malhotra How was the experience of making a fashion film during the pandemic? It was a rounded experience, and I loved every aspect of it - directing it, curating it, collaborating with musicians and singers, giving a look to the characters, and creating those characters, and making a narrative. Both the films that I made were made with joy and love, and I hope people will feel it too when they watch the film. © Manish Malhotra How much of your personal style do you incorporate into your designs and the clothes you make? I love Indian clothes, and that smart, tapered, well-cut Indian clothes. I have started enjoying suits as well of late. You get to see the same in my work as well. Men's fashion in India slipped through the cracks of the mainstream fashion scene and has stayed under the radar for far too long. Take a look at any fashion event - fashion weeks, fashion shows et all, and you'll see how in most of them, menswear seems to be an afterthought. Furthermore, shows focussing exclusively on menswear are a rarity. As a series, 'Ace Indian Designers' is an earnest attempt to celebrate the changing phase of men's fashion in India, and those pioneering geniuses who have come to define our sartorial sensibilities.

  9. For designer Ravi Gupta of Gargee Designers, tradition, it seems, is paramount. The same sensibility is usually reflected in the menswear that he makes. Before joining the label that his father, Shyam Gupta started in the 1980s, Ravi worked closely with people like Karan Johar, Varun Bahl and labels like Diwan Saheb, all of whom are considered to be legends, when it comes to Indian Fashion. © Ravi Gupta With a clientele that boasts of Hrithik Roshan, Amitabh Bachchan, Siddharth Malhotra, Ranbir Kapoor and several other celebrities, Gargee Designers, under Ravi Gupta, has a rather unique perspective, combining elements of both, retail or off-the-rack fashion, and bespoke, designer pieces. © Ravi Gupta We had a little chat with Ravi, about fashion in the post-COVID era, the changes in consumer behaviour, and how the fashion industry has reacted to the sudden paradigm shift. What is that one current trend that we see today on the ramp, that has the potential of making it big among common, regular people in the future? 'Bandhgala' is a piece that is classic and will stay in vogue for a long time. It’s a silhouette that has also been popular on the international ramps. It gives an elegant and regal feel irrespective of which culture it is adapted into. Originally, it’s an Indian concept, which has been adopted by the western designers in a number of different ways. © Isha Bhansali How has consumer behaviour changed in the post-COVID era? How have you prepared to take on those changes? The pandemic has forced people to postpone their weddings and people are even avoiding gathering in big numbers. Consequently, the functions have reduced and therefore, the demand for outfits per function has also reduced. Also, from a style and fashion perspective, people are not experimenting with looks. They prefer to keep the designs simple and in my experience, ivory Sherwani is making a major comeback among grooms. So, we are seeing a change where people are going back to conventional patterns and dressing. © Ravi Gupta As far as preparations are concerned, we had to brainstorm a lot and keeping the crisis in view, we decided to postpone our planned collection and started preparing a different collection, which could suit the needs of the consumers in the current time. We settled on using versatile colours, less-experimental cuts and gave more stress on classic pieces that can be used again and again for future occasions. Tell us something about your creative process. How do you come up with themes, motifs and images for your creations? We try to do that by analysing the market trends and closely observing the trend pattern among our consumers’ demand. We then track the common colours, designs, styles and patterns that are most popular among them. We also keep a track on the international and Indian designers and try to learn about new changes they are bringing in the fashion world. All this together helps us prepare a blueprint that is promising for the creative and commercial world too. © Ravi Gupta What is that one trend in men's fashion that you don't like? I strongly disagree with trends that are high on experimentation. Anarkali kurtas and tops for men is a turn off for me. It gives a very feminine look which takes away the glory of a traditional outfit that is known for its grace and charm. It is hard for Indian men to pull off an Anarkali style outfit because it doesn’t fit the traditional mould of a well-dressed groom. How the industry as a whole is dealing with sustainable and eco-friendly fashion? It’s been a trend for quite some time and the recent pandemic gave it a wider scope, as the lockdown made designers and fashion houses rethink about the future of fashion. From fashion shows going digital and major stress on the campaign ‘Make in India’, there is growing potential in the trend that is likely to generate more employment and change the face of Indian fashion in near future. © Nakuul Mehta What are your views on the debate around Maximalism vis-a-vis Minimalism? I think it changes from person to person because fashion and style is a personal thing. Minimalism is chic, yet on the other hand, maximalism is also contemporary and edgy. A balance of the two is also something that is a preference for some. I don't see it as a debate, because something being too much or too less is a personal choice. Where does e-commerce or online shopping fit into your scheme of things? Online shopping is changing the market at a rapid rate. The pandemic has boosted the online buying behaviour of consumers. This is likely to grow, as designers and brands are starting their own e-commerce websites and are investing a lot in online shopping networking. Also, there is a growing market for virtual styling and fashion consultation, which is expected to revolutionize the fashion world in the next decade. © Ravi Gupta How difficult is it for a new designer or a label to get a break in the industry? Given the current situation, it is definitely not easy because the existing designers are already providing consumers with all the latest trends. Unless a new designer has a unique fashion idea, it will be hard for them to survive. Anything unique tends to get more attention and popularity. Also, a strong online and offline marketing of the idea is likely to get a fairly good chance to make it big. © Ravi Gupta Where do you think men's fashion in India is heading? Men's fashion in India is at its best. I think it will stay there and only evolve. Previously, men were not fashion conscious. The modern man has his own taste and preferences. The change has been brought in by the international brands and Indian designers have added an edge to it. The rise in travel has also given men the liberty to experiment and open their minds to fashion and styling. They are able to make informed choices and also have their own ideas on how their outfit should be styled and even tailored. © Instagram/pyumishra Tell us something about Anahata, your latest festive collection. 'Anahata' is the heart chakra or the fourth primary chakra, according to Hindu Yogic. This collection came to life during the lockdown and has a spiritual connection. It’s a collection that is very close to my heart and revolves around geometric prints, subtle and soothing colours, and classic silhouettes; because I feel that the ongoing period is all about basics. Even the upcoming wedding season will see very basic and classic silhouettes. So keeping that in view, we have designed this collection and is likely to be accepted by a wider audience. © Ravi Gupta Three words you'd use to describe your signature style? Classic, versatile, and affordable luxury. Do you think traditional Indian menswear is evolving? Yes, certainly, it is! Any advice for younger designers who are trying to get a break in the industry Be original and create your own unique style. What would be your alternate career option, if not fashion? A yoga practitioner/teacher. One key trend that you think has the potential to make it big in the menswear market Long jackets - thigh or knee-length. Men's fashion in India slipped through the cracks of the mainstream fashion scene and has stayed under the radar for far too long. Take a look at any fashion event - fashion weeks, fashion shows et all, and you'll see how in most of them, menswear seems to be an afterthought.

  10. Indian Armed Forces are taking initiatives towards being more inclusive of female soldiers and pilots. The Indian Navy now has its first batch of female pilots for Maritime Reconnaissance (MR) missions on Dornier aircraft. The pilots completed their Dornier Operational Flying Training on the 20th of October at INS Garuda in Kochi. © BCCL The three women out of the six pilots are Lieutenant Shubhangi Swaroop, Lt. Divya Sharma, and Lt Shivangi who took the 27th Dornier Operational Flying Training (DOFT) course. They graduated on October 22 as fully operational MR pilots and the ceremony was held at INS Garuda after completion of their course. The pilots had earlier undertaken basic flying training with the Indian Air Force as well as the Indian Navy just before the DOFT course. The training included one month of ground training which was followed by eight months of flying training at INAS 550, that constituted the nine-month-long course at the Dornier Squadron of the Southern Naval Command. #harkaamdeshkenaam First batch of 03 women pilots of @indiannavy operationalised as MR pilots on Dornier a/c as they complete Dornier ops flg training (DOFT) with 03 male counterparts at INS Garuda, #SNC, #Kochi on 20 Oct 20.@SpokespersonMoD @DefenceMinIndia pic.twitter.com/tJFDg1vTgq — PRO Defence Kochi (@DefencePROkochi) October 22, 2020 The PRO Defence Kochi took to Twitter saying, “The first batch of 03 women pilots of @indiannavy operationalized as MR pilots on Dornier a/c as they complete Dornier ops flg training (DOFT) with 03 male counterparts at INS Garuda, #SNC, #Kochi on 20 Oct 20.” Lieutenant Shubhangi Swaroop is from Uttar Pradesh, Tilhar and Lt Divya Sharma from New Delhi.

  11. Looking 30 at 30 is good. Looking 26 at 30 is great. And if you look 35 at 30, we still love you but it might be a sign of underlying grooming issues. Ageing gracefully is a beautiful process. You become wise. You get that intense silver fox look. But if your skin and hair start appearing too old, too soon, none of these will justify your habit of ignoring skincare or making anti-ageing grooming mistakes, unintentionally. So put some thought into it and avoid these rookie errors. __ECOMLOOKS__1880__ __ECOMLOOKS__1881__ __ECOMLOOKS__1882__ __ECOMLOOKS__1883__ __ECOMLOOKS__1884__ The BottomlineAgeing is good. It makes you wise and all the wrinkles and marks on your body tell the world your story. But ageing before your time only hinders the blissful process of growth. So stop making these anti-ageing grooming mistakes and notice the difference. You know what else would be great? You sharing your experience with us in the comment section.

  14. The Apple Watch is known for saving countless lives in the past and it seems like it saved a 61-year-old man’s life in India as well. The Apple Watch comes with some nifty features that have been responsible for saving lives in the past including fall detection, heart rate tracking and ECG. © unsplash Rajhans shared the data with his doctor even though it was showing the same findings and it later turned out he had a low fraction and required immediate heart surgery. "My dad underwent a Mitral Valve replacement surgery and it was his Apple Watch that helped detect the irregular heart rhythm prior to the Valve failure Echo-cardiograph," his son Siddharth told IANS. Siddharth wrote to Tim Cook thanking him for the Apple Watch’s features and received a reply from Tim Cook himself via an email: "Siddharth, thank you for sharing this. I am happy to note that your father received medical attention in time and I hope he's feeling better now. Our team will connect with you,” "The idea of having a device like Apple Watch is to strike a balance between using tech and medical awareness in order to take charge of our parent's lives. It saved my dad's life. It's a life-changing product," Siddharth said. View the full article

  17. Creating wardrobes or costumes for films is one of the most arduous tasks in filmmaking, without a doubt. This becomes even more difficult when the film is a period drama. And yet, somehow, filmmakers in Bollywood have often done it right. © UTV Motion Pictures This means that a huge shoutout goes to people who create the styles and the ensembles that we see in films. These people include the likes of Neeta Lulla, Dolly Ahluwalia, celebrity stylist Akshay Tyagi, and the late Bhanu Athaiya, the first Indian to win an Oscar. © Yash Raj Films We pick 7 Indian period films that got the costumes absolutely right 1. Lagaan, 2001 © Sony Pictures Networks Lagaan was made with a budget of over Rs 25 Crores, which was unprecedented back in 2001. It actually makes sense why the film was so expensive to make, especially when we consider just how accurate the costumes were. Take the cricket match as an example. Instead of repurposing modern-day cricket pads and making them look like handmade, the filmmakers decided to make each and every cricketing gear that the Indian side use, with materials that would be available to the common man back in the 1890s. Then, there is also the costumes of the characters and the detail with which they were made. 2. Jodhaa Akbar, 2008 © UTV Motion Pictures Say what you will about Ashutosh Gowariker, but his attention to detail is something that a lot of established Bollywood filmmakers could learn a lot from. Not only is the detail intricate, but it is also historically accurate. Starting from the jewellery that was used in the film, to the fabric that was used to make the clothes of the actors, everything was based accurately, on the aesthetics and traditions of the 16th Century. 3. Detective Byomkesh Bakshy, 2015 © Yash Raj Films Even Dibakar Banerjee’s Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! didn’t see amazing box office figures, it remains to be one of the best period films we have ever made. It goes without saying, Sushant Singh Rajput, was just phenomenal in the film. The costumes and ensembles used in the film were absolutely spot on and reminded people with ease that they were watching a film, based in Calcutta in the 1940s. 4. The Legend of Bhagat Singh, 2002 © Shemaroo The Legend Of Bhagat Singh encompassed a number of different decades in it. And yet, it managed to be stylistically accurate about each and every one of them. Starting from the traditional Indian outfits of the time, to the western suits, and hats, every ensemble that we see in the film, is spot on. 5. Mughal-e-Azam, 1960 © Sterling Investment Corporation There is no point in beating around the bush, but K Asif’s Mughal-e-Azam is without a doubt, the greatest Indian film ever made, at least as far as technicalities and details in filmmaking are concerned. It is actually very easy to recreate ensembles of the aristocrats, given the abundance of historical documents, and portraits that we have. To make the ensembles of different classes of soldiers, and of the commoners, surely must have been a task. And yet, here we have, one of the most intricately detailed films of all time. 6. Devdas, 2002 © Red Chillies Entertainment Sanjay Leela Bhansali is another masterful filmmaker who pays very close attention to the details of his films. There are a number of films, where the costumes and ensembles were exactly what they would have been in history, however, none of them come close to Devdas. In 2002, it was made with a budget of Rs 44 Crores, the largest budget with which a film was made. The level of detailing in the clothes, whether you speak of traditional Bengali outfits, or European ensembles was just spectacular. 7. Bajirao Mastani, 2015 © Eros International Finally, we have Bajirao Mastani, another Sanjay Leela Bhansali film. The costumes in the film were again, intricately detailed, and more importantly, historically accurate. Even the hairstyles and the beard styles that were shown in the film were spot on, something a lot of filmmakers simply gloss over, when making period films. Ranveer Singh’s armour, for example, was made just in the way a Maratha Peshwa would wear while leading a battle. View the full article

Apparently, the console will be able to transfer a 2GB file in just 0.27 seconds. Sony also revealed the User Interface of the console earlier this week which you can check out in the video below: We will keep you updated about the release date of the console as soon as we hear from Sony India. There is a good chance that the console will be available from November 19th onwards however that remains to be speculation right now. View the full article
  19. Ever since the advent of Twenty20 (T20) format, the world of cricket has witnessed numerous leagues coming to the fore. From Australia, West Indies, Pakistan to even Bangladesh, every country has got its own T20 tournaments now. But, amongst those, none can match the Indian Premier League (IPL) in terms of stature or popularity. In the last 12 years, the IPL has established itself as one of the biggest and most-watched T20 tournaments across the globe. Bringing some of the biggest names together in franchise-based teams, the IPL has proved to be the go-to source of entertainment for cricket fans over the years. Big stars, celebrity owners, hefty paychecks and cheerleaders; IPL is the perfect mix of cricket, glitz and glamour. But, that's not all. There is more to India's cash-rich T20 event than meets the eye. Far away from all the razzmatazz, IPL has served as a pivotal platform for young guns to prove their mettle and rise through the ranks. And, the thirteenth edition, currently being played in the United Arab Emirates, has proved to be no different. Despite their tender age, Indian youngsters in IPL 2020 are not just learning while playing with more experienced campaigners, in fact, if their recent performances is anything to go by, it's safe to say they have successfully managed to overshadow the proven stars on the back of their brilliant performances this season. Here's a look at those 5 Indian young guns who've won fans over this season: 1. Devdutt Padikkal © Twitter/@IPL For an exquisite stroke player who set the 2018 U-19 World Cup on fire, Shubman Gill didn't surprise anyone after getting a Rs 1.9-crore contract from Kolkata Knight Riders in 2018. And, ever since making his IPL debut in 2018, young Gill has looked better with every game. But, it's the ongoing season where the right-hander truly looks in a class of his own. Tasked with the responsibility of opening the innings, the 21-year-old batsman is leading the charts as top run-scorer for KKR this season. In the seven matches he has played so far, Gill has amassed 254 runs including two fifties. In a team that has got star batsmen like Eoin Morgan and Andre Russell, Gill has been busy carving his own niche on the back of superlative batting performances this season. 4. Rahul Chahar © Twitter/@IPL For a youngster who led India to the U-19 World Cup triumph in 2018, Prithvi Shaw, like his teammates, was amongst the most sought after players in the IPL Auction. He was eventually bought by Delhi Capitals for Rs 1.2 crore and has gone on to become a key member of the Shreyas Iyer-led side. After getting plenty of game-time last season, Shaw has looked in ominous form this year. Opening the innings for Delhi, the right-hander has been responsible for providing good starts to his team and also played some match-winning knocks. In the eight matches he has played so far, Shaw has amassed 202 runs including two fifties. He is also the third-highest run-scorer for Delhi this season, only behind Shikhar Dhawan and Iyer.

  21. Virat Kohli and his Royal Challengers Bangalore were on a two game winning streak ahead of their clash against KL Rahul and Kings XI Punjab. After a really long time, the franchise was finally looking like the team they are supposed to, based on the kind of talent they have onboard and are placed at the third spot in the points table of the Indian Premier League. #IPL2020 | #IPLPOINTSTABLE | #sports pic.twitter.com/Sel0gOEAJh — Captain News (@captainnewstv) October 16, 2020 So obviously, it makes sense for the skipper to feel a little better than how he usually felt around this time in the tournament in the past couple of seasons and could finally have some fun on the field. Before RCB took on KXIP on Thursday night at Sharjah, Kohli bursted out some moves during the warm up session and as soon as they reached the internet, they instantly went viral. ffs Kohli 😭😂 pic.twitter.com/rrdP48e8Tv — Jatin (@LogicalBakwaas) October 15, 2020 From cradling like a baby to popping out some of the classic Bollywood style moves, Kohli was vibing and felt in a mood completely different from what we usually see on any other given day. His dance moves created some hilarious memes on social media every Indian can relate to: Mummy: beta aunty ko dance karke dikhao 5 yo me: pic.twitter.com/CvZwvdmhSC — Pro.Fool buddy🌈 (@ColFool_) October 15, 2020 Kohli’s solo dance that never made it to his sangeet https://t.co/wrXBQBUBaE — Sonali Thakker Desai (@SonaliThakker) October 16, 2020 Mummy: beta aunty ko dance karke dikhao 5 yo me: pic.twitter.com/CvZwvdmhSC — Pro.Fool buddy🌈 (@ColFool_) October 15, 2020 When backbenchers got 30 out of 100 pic.twitter.com/pMb9dRyHNa — Asif IQ Hn (@ImAsifIQHn1) October 16, 2020 pic.twitter.com/4WHyuLIQuO — MemerSoul (@MujheYaadKiya) October 15, 2020 He ended up scoring 48 runs off 39 deliveries and was the best player to play for the Bangalore franchise and even managed to put up a decent total for Punjab to chase with minimal help from Aaron Finch, Shivam Dube and Chris Morris in the first half. It was their bowlers, especially Mohammad Siraj (44 runs in 3 overs) and Washington Sunder (38 runs in 4 overs) that led to their fall against the struggling KXIP team. My Pre Match Request to Mohammed Siraj. Siraj bhai... Yorker bahale hi math dalo...par please please no Full Toss🙏🙏🙏#IPL2020 #PlayBold #WeAreChallengers #RCBvskkr #KKRvRCB #RCBvKKr pic.twitter.com/RC7C6CrTgV — NSR (@Nandan_) October 12, 2020 The fact that ‘Universe Boss’ Chris Gayle also got to debut for the season against them and hit a crucial half century with one four and five sixes, to lead Punjab for the victory also played a big role in their defeat. May the Boss be with us 😎#SaddaPunjab #IPL2020 #KXIP #RCBvKXIP @henrygayle pic.twitter.com/DEvbnsLZel — Kings XI Punjab (@lionsdenkxip) October 16, 2020 In the 2020 season of the league, KXIP have won only two matches and both of them have been against RCB which is to say that KL Rahul’s boys are a definite kryptonite to the Challengers. One positive outtake from this loss was how Kohli simply took it in good stride and is already looking forward to their next game against yet another struggling roster in Rajasthan Royals on Saturday at the Dubai International Stadium.
