  1. The buzz around the ICC World Cup 2019 has already started with the first day of warm-up games taking place yesterday, during which South Africa won their match against Sri Lanka and Afghanistan were able to defeat Pakistan in an action-packed run chase. Sure, these games are really exciting but when it comes to the cricket World Cup, the rivalry between India and Pakistan through the years and decades, always comes to mind. And even though the cricketers from both sides have been giving the same politically correct answers throughout history, people still can't get enough of it. In the pre-World Cup, Captains' Press Conference at the Film Shed in London, a reporter asked Virat Kohli and Sarfaraz Ahmed a question about the kind of pressure the 'India-Pakistan' rivalry puts them under. Kohli replied with a very diplomatic answer. He said “India versus Pakistan is always a very anticipated match… but if you ask the players, it is very different from how the fans look at the game compared to how the players play it. Yes, you feel the anticipation and the excitement of the fans when you enter the stadium but when you enter the field, it is professional.” “For us, it is just another game that you need to win as a team. I am sure all the cricketers from both sides feel that as soon as you start playing the game, it eventually is a game of bat and ball, and that's all you need to focus on.” Sounds like a good answer to us. Top marks. Now it was time for the Pakistan captain to answer the same question as the reporters and the camera turned to Sarfaraz Ahmed, expecting him to say something. And like a cunning student who used to wait for the rest of the students to say the answer, Ahmed said: “My answer is also the same. Nothing different. No difference.” Now, we are not making fun of the Pakistan captain and his response, that has all the potential in the world to become a great meme, by the way. via GIPHY No, speaking English is secondary of being able to play a great game of cricket and being of use to your side that is in pursuit of a win against a rival team and the Pak skipper has done his fair share of work to bring his side to the stage they are on today. Full credit to him. The anticipated World Cup clash between India and Pakistan is scheduled to take place on 16th June 2019.
  2. Season 12 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) will come to an end today when two of the most successful teams of the league, Mahendra Singh Dhoni's Chennai Super Kings and Rohit Sharma's Mumbai Indians will lock horns for either of their fourth championship, tonight. However, while IPL 2019 will be remembered for the action-pact games on a nightly basis along with some of the most entertaining television commercials to promote them, it will also be remembered for something a lot more peculiar. Ever since the beginning of the contest, the relationship between players and the umpires has only gotten worse. Some of the most infamous incidents included Indian captain Virat Kohli trying to barge inside the umpire's room, after a no-call cost Kohli and the Royal Challengers Bangalore a game against MI. Then we had 'Captain Cool' losing his temper and march out of the dug-out and into the field to show his disagreement with the officials. Things got out of hand, played were abused and looked down at and cricketers like Dhoni even had to pay half their match fee for “breaching the code of conduct”, which is great, by the way. It is important to maintain decorum, especially for a game like cricket that attracts millions of eyeballs, daily. The whole perspective changes when the heat comes from the other side of the altercation. Umpires and match referees are known for keeping their calm under crucial moments of the game and are expected to handle a situation with care if something seems to be getting out of hand. However, when almost a week ago, when English umpire Nigel Llong was bombarded by Virat Kohli and Umesh Yadav with questions over the incorrect no-ball decision given by him, Llong's anger got the better of him and he ended up breaking a door of the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore. "It was an unfortunate incident. As a state association, we are writing to the COA today," Sudhakar Rao, Secretary, Karnataka State Cricket Association, told The Times of India. Indeed, it was an unfortunate incident, but to let Llong go unscathed and without punishment for such a display of anger has to be an example of the Council's double standards. To add insult to injury, Nigel Llong is also the umpire who will be officiating the IPL final, later today.
  3. This season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) seems to have aggravated the growingly unhealthy relationship that cricketers and umpires have shared in the recent years. The 'human factor' behind an official's decision-making has caused for the end result to be incorrect but the number of occurrences of something like that is extremely low. Sure, with the inclusion of technology such as the hawk-eye which detects the trajectory of the ball had it not been interrupted by the batsman's pad, sensors in the stumps and bails to detect contact and even the snickometer to observe even the lightest contact between the ball and the bat, they all have added to the efficacy of the final result, however, there will always be times when an umpire makes a decision on his own and it could end up being wrong. Through the ongoing season of IPL, there have been some moments when the umpires and players seem to disagree on a particular decision. It happened when Dhoni walked out of the dug-hole and onto the field to get into a verbal bout with the officials, it happened when Rohit Sharma did not agree with an LBW decision and ended up breaking the stumps with his bat and it happened with Virat Kohli who went to the umpires' dressing room to fight them when they didn't call a potential match-winning 'no-ball' in favour of his Royal Challengers Bangalore. However, the current skipper of the Indian cricket team seems to be dealing with some extra bad luck as the tiff with an on-field umpire took place once again on Saturday in a match against Kane Williamson's SunRisers Hyderabad. In the first innings the match with RCB on the bowling side, it was Umesh Yadav who was having a super expensive final over during which he has given away 20 runs in the first four deliveries. On the second-to-last ball of the over, English umpire, Nigel Llong raised his hand sideways to hint that Yadav has overstepped the crease and it was therefore a 'no-ball'. The extra not only gave Hyderabad two runs but they also ended up scoring a boundary on the final delivery. The twist, however, was the fact that the delivery was legit as the screen-replay showed Yadav's foot being well behind the line. Watching the replay, both Yadav and Kohli charged at the umpire to argue and reverse the decision, both of whom were shunned away by the Englishman. © AP What was later reported was that Llong was so frustrated with the two Indian cricketers way of arguing with him that he ended up furiously kicking the door of the umpires' dressing room while breaking it in the process. "It was an unfortunate incident. As a state association, we are writing to the COA today," Sudhakar Rao, Secretary, Karnataka State Cricket Association, told The Times of India. What is probably a solitary moment of frustration and anger shown by an umpire in the past couple of years, must not be taken lightly. What the players and the fans of the game do not realise is the fact that these officials are humans too and like the others, they too, have the right to express their anger when things go south. It also shows how difficult a job is that of an umpire. While players surrounding them have the freedom to express joy, anger, or sadness without a worry, the umpires must keep it neutral and professional.
  4. There are days when the Indian Premier League (IPL) consists of non-stop action, world class cricket and becomes a source of brilliant sportsmanship, as cricketers from all over the world visit our country and play for eight of the highly celebrated and prestigious franchises and show respect towards each other. However, the day Virat Kohli's Royal Challengers Bangalore and Ravichandran Ashwin's Kings XI Punjab locked horns in the former's home ground of M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, it wasn't one of those days. No thanks to the drama created by the RCB skipper, who made a rather “questionable” gesture with his hands after he dismissed the rival captain at the long on with a catch. Virat Kohli gesturing to Ashwin's Mankading absolute savage ! #RCBvKXIP pic.twitter.com/JPiFqM5IBm — Trojan_Horse (@sampath0272) April 24, 2019 Kohli's theatrics clearly worked wonders as Ashwin was visibly furious and threw a fit as soon as he reached the dugout, slamming his batting gloves on the ground in rage. Once the 'Play Bold' franchise were able to prevent Kings XI from chasing their total of 202 and won the match, a comparatively vented out Ashwin took to the microphone to describe the extremely animated exchange that took place between the two former teammates who once used to play for Team India. "I just played with passion, so does he (Virat). That's it. As simple as that," Ashwin said in the post-match press conference, trying to bury the matter and look forward. However, it's clear as day that Ashwin's team, Kings XI Punjab, weren't done with the Indian captain and decided to slay him with sarcasm. Organising their very first “Kuch Bhi Awards”, KXIP honoured Kohli with the 'Stuart Broad Humility Award.' Virat Kohli's gesture after taking our skipper Ashwin's catch has earned himself a Kuch Bhi Award from us. Find out which one: https://t.co/eFDfg3kD2f ð¸ - Hotstar #SaddaPunjab pic.twitter.com/zJ0zCwiO9c — Kings XI Punjab (@lionsdenkxip) April 28, 2019 “Nothing warms the heart like a display of sportsman spirit on the field. And during Kings XI Punjab match against the Royal Challengers Bangalore, opposition skipper Virat Kohli showed just why he's hailed as a beacon of sportsmanship. After grabbing the match-winning catch, Kohli showed concern towards the batsman's well-being and politely asked, “How're you doing?” with a hand gesture,” says their website. “For this noble act, we give Kohli the Stuart Broad Humility Award and his team two points.” Now if a rival gang is throwing shade at your captain, how can you stay behind in responding?

  5. It feels as if Virat Kohli has finally found himself the mighty Infinity Stones and is using them to help his Royal Challengers Bangalore get on a late-tournament winning streak after starting out horribly, losing six straight matches and sulking at the bottom of the points table in the first leg. Winning their last three matches, Kohli and the 'Play Bold' franchise have found new life and even took over Steve Smith's Rajasthan Royals for a day in terms of total points, before they spoiled Dinesh Karthik's heroic innings and defeated the Knight Riders in Kolkata last night. Currently fixed in a peculiar spot, RCB, RR and Dinesh Karthik's Kolkata Knight Riders are competing for the sixth spot with 6 points apiece. Such a comeback looks nothing short of magic and just when we began to realise that something supernatural was at play here, King Kohli came up with this video: View this post on Instagram This snap would probably help the Avengers better. ðPresenting the special edition cricket can from #Oceanone8 energy drinks. #one8 #PlayTheDay @oceanbeverages A post shared by Virat Kohli (@virat.kohli) on Apr 25, 2019 at 8:26am PDT “This snap would probably help the Avengers better,” said Kohli's Instagram caption. The video was a commercial for an energy drink produced by the Indian skipper's athleisure brand, Ocean One 8. Originally in a blue can, the mundane colours 'Decimated' away in thin air as soon as Kohli snapped his fingers with the new shiny colours of the limited cricket edition visible on the can. Having said that, the fans of 'Avengers: Endgame' were not impressed with the commercial and let the RCB captain know it: Thanos be like:Maa meri shaktiyo ka galat istemal ho rha haiðâï¸ — Rafale Kumar (@goon_liberal) April 25, 2019 Bhai IPL me RCB ki halat aisi na ho Jae!!! — Dr.Himanshu Nayak (@DrHimanshuNayak) April 25, 2019 bina infinity gauntlet pehne snap adhura hai....................... pic.twitter.com/yFJWY0tuFk — abhishek singh rajput (@abhi171090) April 25, 2019 Behnchod ye kya chutiappa h — Vidya Nand Giri (@VidyaNandGiri7) April 26, 2019
  6. It doesn't matter how many times you fall until you have the courage to get up and going again, and the same formula applies to the Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in this year's Indian Premier League. Despite losing six matches in a row, RCB is showing signs of improvement by winning three games out of the last four. With RCB having a one-in-a-million chance of qualifying for the playoffs, they have to make sure they win all of their remaining matches. King Kohli took a sigh of relief when they earned another two points by defeating the table-toppers Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by one run. Regardless of an outstanding knock of 84 by the 'Thallaiva' MS Dhoni himself, the wounded Challengers did manage to seize a win from CSK's mouth. View this post on Instagram Unreal stuff at the Chinnaswamy stadium as @royalchallengersbangalore keep the fight going ðª #RCBvCSK A post shared by IPL (@iplt20) on Apr 21, 2019 at 11:35am PDT Soon after the game, the game changer from RCB; Dale Steyn got into a fun chat with skipper Kohli about the evolution of their relationship over the years. From hugging each other in 2009 to the right arm pacer scooping Chiku after the celebration of Suresh Raina's wicket, the bromance between both still remains intact. Kohli showed a collage of his picture with the South-African pacer calling it a “ten-year challenge,” by adding that Steyn looks the same and that he has changed a lot over the years. They further went on to praise each other for all the achievements and accolades. View this post on Instagram Delighted to have Steyn back in the team - Virat Kohli .

A post shared by IPL (@iplt20) on Apr 21, 2019 at 5:30pm PDT With four games still to be played by RCB, they will surely aim for the impossible and make it to the playoffs. Let's wait and watch if they can get the momentum this late in the season.
  7. After the extremely unfortunate terror attack in Pulwama on Valentine's Day this year, the wounds of the loss of our CRPF jawans had not even healed yet and the heart-breaking news of bombings in the neighbouring land of Sri Lanka has left South Asia along with the rest of the world praying for those who lost their lives in the attack and their families who will never get to reunite with their loved ones. What has been described as the “river of blood”, the attacks in churches across Negombo, Batticaloa and the national capital of Colombo on Easter sunday included a total of eight blasts at the hands of suicide bombers that led to the loss of more than 200 individuals with more than 500 severly injured. Unlike the attack in Jammu & Kashmir's district of Pulwama, which was instantly claimed by the notorious terror group, Jaish-e-Mohammed, yesterday's attacks weren't accepted by any group or organisation. The country, however, has been home to a decade-long civil war and an attack as big as this has to have some negative impact on the already tense environment. Realising the political scenario of his state, former Sri Lankan cricketer Kumar Sangakkara took to social media to request his people to not jump to conclusions and let the process of detecting the speculators of such a horrendous act unveiling with time and complete rationality: “I am shocked and saddened by these despicable acts of barbarism,” said Sangakkara in an Instagram post. “My heart breaks for the victims and all of you are in my thoughts and prayers. I would like to extend my love and condolences to the families of those who have lost their lives and I wish all those injured a speedy and full recovery. I also wish more strength to the hearts and hands of the first responders and the medical personnel who are attending to the injured and to the security personnel who are trying to bring the situation under control." “While we struggle to comprehend the depths of depravity people can descend to, and while we all grieve in unison, we need to find the strength to stand together as Sri Lankans; shoulder to shoulder and heart to heart. Together we can get through. Divided we have but little hope. Even though our hearts are overwhelmed with emotion, it is vital that we force our minds to be rational and intelligent. Do not rush to judgement or conclusions. Let's give ourselves time to grieve. Let's give ourselves the space to try and understand the ground reality. Loved ones have died. Fellow Sri Lankans have died. Guests visiting our country have died." “Do not buy into the spin or conjecture or the conspiracy theories. This is not a game. Eschew the efforts of those who shamefully try to politicise this tragedy. Let the authorities investigate. Let the authorities bring these cowardly terrorists to justice." “For us, our focus should be to love and support those who have been affected. To continue to have compassion and empathy for our neighbours. To keep each other safe. To try and ensure our thoughts, words and deeds enable and empower us to lift each other out of this tragedy. To join together and try our hardest to ensure that no such tragedy can ever occur again.” Love and care for one another know no boundaries and will always prevail wherever a conflict against fear takes place. Keeping that in mind, the sports fraternity of India showed their remorse towards our neighbours, praying for the lives of the victims and their families and extended their wishes towards the nation. Shocked to hear the news coming in from Sri Lanka. My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by this tragedy. #PrayForSriLanka — Virat Kohli (@imVkohli) April 21, 2019 Saddened to hear about the terror attacks in various parts of Sri Lanka. Strongly condemn these acts of terror. Hatred and violence will never overpower love, kindness and compassion. ðð» #SriLanka — Sachin Tendulkar (@sachin_rt) April 21, 2019 Deeply saddened by the terrible attacks in #SriLanka .My sincere prayers with the people of Sri Lanka in this very difficult time. — VVS Laxman (@VVSLaxman281) April 21, 2019 Thoughts and prayers go out to the families affected by the blasts in #SriLanka.

  8. For a team that has often been labelled as underachievers, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) continued to live up to that reputation after losing six games on the trot in the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Despite boasting of some of the biggest names in international cricket, the Bangalore franchise consistently failed to get past their opponents in this year's edition. However, their dismal losing streak finally came to an end after a strong showing against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) saw them securing a convincing eight-wicket win in their last match. A brilliant batting performance by Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers got RCB over the line, giving their fans something to cheer for. While RCB finally managed to register their first points this season, their troubles aren't over yet. Following their win over KXIP, captain Kohli was handed a fine of Rs 12 lakh for breaching the IPL's Code of Conduct. Twitter/@IPL The Team India captain was found guilty of maintaining a slow-over rate in the clash against KXIP which led to the unfortunate ramifications. "Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli has been fined after his team maintained a slow over-rate during their VIVO Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 match against Kings XI Punjab in Mohali on 13th April 2019," said an IPL statement. "As it was his team's first offense of the season under the IPL's Code of Conduct relating to minimum over-rate offenses, Mr. Kohli was fined Rs 12 lakh," it added further. In the process, Kohli became only the third captain this season to be handed a fine for his team's slow over-rate. Mumbai Indians' captain Rohit Sharma and Rajasthan Royals' skipper Ajinkya Rahane were also fined by IPL governing council for maintaining slow over-rate earlier this season. Twitter/@IPL As per the rules, a second violation for slow over-rate would result in a fine of Rs 24 lakh for the captain and 25% of the match fee from every other player in the team. And, a third offence will lead to a one-match ban for the captain and an increased fine of Rs 30 lakh. With RCB returning to the winning ways, Kohli will surely feel less burdened, but the Indian batting sensation will need to be careful about the slow over-rate when his team visits the Wankhede stadium to lock horns with Mumbai on 15th April.
  9. Let's just get one question out of the way before we dive deep into the discussion, we are, in no way, doubting the immense talent and limitless potential of the current leader of the Indian cricket team as a scorer and a batsman. If we look down the past, the only athlete that comes even closer to being mentioned in the same sentence as the all-time great Sachin Tendulkar has to be Virat Kohli, currently ranked number one on International Cricket Council's list of batsmen in both ODI and Test formats of the game. Chasing the legacy of someone who is considered to be the finest product of the game since the 'master blaster', Kohli has literally been on top of the game for ages. Fans and players from all over the world, yes, even the ruthless Aussies, believe that Kohli's got what it takes to challenge every single record created by notable batsmen in the history of international cricket. “I love watching Virat Kohli bat. I love his aggression And serious passion that I used to have. He reminds me of myself”, Sir Vivian Richards had once said about the Indian prodigy and he was bang on point. The man, who's known to have a hot head on his shoulders, has found a way to channelise all that rage through his bat. When the Delhi-born decided to spill water all over Sri Lanka's joy in a 2012 matchup in Hobart, Australia, cricketing world first took notice of the beast in the making. Scoring an unbeaten 133 off just 86 deliveries to successfully chase a mammoth total of 321 in as few as 40 overs, Kohli made a name for himself. “The king of run-chase”, they called him. King Kohli was born. Jump seven years ahead, Virat Kohli, the batter has only risen in ranks and become one of the most successful hitters of modern day cricket. 2018 was specifically his year as ICC just happened to decorate his trophy room with all of the most prestigious recognitions they could. In a single year, Kohli, the batsman became ICC Men's Cricketer of the Year, ICC Men's Test, Cricketer of the Year and ICC Men's ODI Cricketer of the Year. Not to take away any credit from Virat Kohli the skipper as he was honoured as the Captain of ICC Test Team of the Year and Captain of ICC Men's ODI Team of the Year also. ICC Men's Cricketer of the Year â ICC Men's Test Cricketer of the Year â ICC Men's ODI Cricketer of the Year â Captain of ICC Test Team of the Year â Captain of ICC Men's ODI Team of the Year â Let's hear from the man himself, @imvKohli! #ICCAwards ð pic.twitter.com/3M2pxyC44n — ICC (@ICC) January 22, 2019 However, there always has been that one stain on the captain of the Men in Blue that Kohli's captaincy has been successful only because of the presence of a certain former-skipper of the squad who is considered to be the greatest leader of Team India, Mahendra Singh Dhoni. “I think the best thing for Virat Kohli is that he has got MS Dhoni as keeper. You can see whenever he is in the deep, MS Dhoni helps him with the field, talks to the bowlers in crucial situations,” Indian Hall of Famer Sunil Gavaskar had said in March. Surely, there were numerous Kohli supporters who shut his claims down way back then. “He is a great captain on his own”, they'd said. And then, the twelfth season of Indian Premier League (IPL) happened and all those supporters began to believe in their own words lesser and lesser. With no Dhoni to back him up in Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), Kohli's reign crumpled a little with every match that he lost. Currently sitting at the bottom of the points table of the league, it might be too late for RCB to make a miracle return as well. It is evident that the horrible losing streak is having an adverse impact on Kohli's performance as a batsman. In the six matches, the Bangalore captain has amassed just 203 runs with only one half-century in a deflating loss to Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Andre Russell's bat. "We just weren't good on the given day. That's the whole story of RCB this season," Kohli said in disappointment after losing the match against Shreyas Iyer's Delhi Capitals on Sunday. A player must never be judged on the basis of a month-long tournament, certainly, but if you have the remotest idea about the mentality of an athlete, especially as competitive as Kohli, such stents have a devastating effect on your form and psyche. With the 2019 ICC World Cup less than two months away, a man so humbled must not lead the Indian roster, if we want to win it all, that is. This is not a half-cooked notion either. People from all over the country believe that Kohli should step down from the throne and let somebody like Rohit Sharma spearhead the team. Virat the batsman ð¤ But Virat the captain is hampering his batting at the moment. should step down and concentrate on his batting. — happy mohanty (@HappyDebabrata) April 7, 2019 Virat Kohli plss..,plsss, you retire from captain of rcb then rcb will win plss, don't disappoint us ,pls — Ek Villain (@EkVillain9091) April 7, 2019 Let the truth be told: Virat is not captain material. Time to change the captain! — Vishwanath Narayan (@Vishwanath0305) April 7, 2019 Virat Kohli should Retire With Immediate Effect from Indian Team's Captaincy. Atleast we can have hope for World Cup. Rohit Sharma should lead Team India in World Cup Atleast Virat Kohli will be able to focus on his Batting. ð — Alokk Verma (@AlokkVerma75) April 7, 2019 Anyday better captain then virat No doubt about that — Sachin Raj (@rajsachin767) April 7, 2019 Is it just me that thinks @ImRo45 should captain team India too !!! #MumbaiIndians #TeamIndia — Glorious Girl (@GloriousGirl_97) April 7, 2019 Dear @BCCI make @ImRo45 captain of India for ODI & T20 and if possible then for world cupâ¤ï¸ no doubt Virat is better batsman but Rohit is better captain than him #Rohitsharma — Shraddha_SW (@Shraddha_wagh09) April 6, 2019 Dear @BCCI make @ImRo45 captain of India for ODI & T20 and if possible then for world cupâ¤ï¸ no doubt Virat is better batsman but Rohit is better captain than him #Rohitsharma — Shraddha_SW (@Shraddha_wagh09) April 6, 2019 Make no mistake, none of these people are criticising Kohli as a cricketer. All they ask of him is to take some time away from captaincy and focus of bringing back the beast of a batsman he once used to be and has the potential to do so.
  10. The past two days of the Indian Premier League has seen some rather bizarre series of events taking place that have changed the complete scenario of the matches with outcomes absolutely different from what the viewers were expecting. We are talking about the matches that took place between Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on Friday, and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) on Saturday. You did not even have to look carefully to realise how similar the two games got in the final overs of the second innings, respectively. Let's start by talking about the game between RCB and KKR. During the 17th over Bangalore's bowling, it was Mohammad Siraj who bowled his second dangerous beamer of the match and had to give up the rest of the over with four deliveries left. During this situation, RCB captain, Virat Kohli was standing at the boundary, waiting for the situation to untangle itself. It was only after the umpire had taken the ball away from Siraj that the RCB captain ran down to the pitch to decide what needs to happen. Eventually, he decided to give the ball to Marcus Stoins and KKR's Andre Russell had himself a grand feast. Ruthless. Relentless. Russel ðªð¥ The absolute hitting that led to this though ðð@KKRiders @Russell12A #RCBvKKR pic.twitter.com/4Ou1HzYS34 — IndianPremierLeague (@IPL) April 5, 2019 Now, let's talk about the match between CSK and KXIP. In the second last over of Chennai's bowling, Deepak Chahar bowls back to back beamers at Sarfaraz Khan, who manages to hit a four on the first but takes a single on the second to give the strike to David Miller. This is where MS Dhoni steps in to have a word with the youngblood. Visibly upset with the consecutive no-balls, Dhoni lets Chahar hear it. It felt more like a discussion between an angry school teacher and a student who keeps quiet with hands at the back the whole time. Moment of the day. #DeepakChahar was almost in tears after a terrible start to the over. Couldn't look into the eyes of #Dhoni. Would love to know what from Chahar himself on what was said. Because clearly after this, he seemed a different bowler altogether. #CSKvKXIP #VIVOIPL pic.twitter.com/iwq3yVXjtI — Abhishek Barthur (@imabhi27) April 6, 2019 Instantly, Chahar looked like a different player altogether. After two scary yorkers he ended the over by dismissing Miller. We could not have made this up. One day after another, the two leaders of the Indian cricket team were put in similar spot but while one chose to continue to abuse at his players from the boundary line, the other decided to find out what's wrong with his teammate, shared a few words of wisdom and encouraged him to be the best version of himself.
  11. It is official ladies and gentleman, Virat Kohli and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) are cursed for the entire 2019 season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The first half of the match between RCB and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) gave the viewers the feeling that Virat Kohli and his side will finally pick up their first win of the season. The skipper played his best innings this year and his feat of 84 runs also helped him become only the second Indian cricketer to score 8000+ runs in the Twenty20 format, behind Suresh Raina. Kohli also became the fastest Indian to reach the milestone. The @RCBTweets Skipper departs after a terrific knock of 84 runs ðð#RCB 172/1 pic.twitter.com/bJl9RnuCCd — IndianPremierLeague (@IPL) April 5, 2019 Even AB de Villiers, who was struggling to put up big numbers this year, came to Kohli's aide and played like his old self scoring quick 63 runs in just 32 balls to establish a rock-solid total of 205. Well into the second half of the game when it was KKR's turn to try and chase the massive score, it felt as if Bangalore can finally celebrate the win at their home ground. Even though batsmen like Chris Lynn, Robin Utthapa and Nitish Rana were able to put up decent numbers, the journey to chasing 205 runs seemed long and difficult. But the best (the worst for RCB) was yet to come. With the dismissal of KKR captain Dinesh Karthik, entered Andre Russell, who has been in superhuman form and has been referred to as the destroyer of bowlers on multiple occasions by multiple commentators. After taking four balls to dig his feet into the pitch, Russell looked locked and loaded to making the seemingly impossible task look like a child's play. The demolition of RCB and Virat Kohli's spirit began in the 17th over when Mohhamad Siraj bowled a beamer. As the ball paced for Russell's head he tried to deflect it with his bat. The velocity of the ball combined with the brute strength of the Carabean beast made the 'no-ball' travel across the boundary for a six. This delivery being Siraj's second beamer of the game forced him to give up the ball to Marcus Stoins, who in turn had to bowl the rest of the four deliveries of Siraj's over. Unfortunately for Stoins, the first ball he had to delivery was eligible for a 'free-hit'. Half-heartedly, the Aussie bowled at the length of 'the slot' which just happens to be Russell's favourite portion of the crease. Hitting a long maximum off the free-hit, Russell wanted to end the game as soon as possible. He then scored another six on the next ball and a hat-trick of sixes in the next over to tie the game at 205 runs a piece. Ruthless. Relentless. Russel ðªð¥ The absolute hitting that led to this though ðð@KKRiders @Russell12A #RCBvKKR pic.twitter.com/4Ou1HzYS34 — IndianPremierLeague (@IPL) April 5, 2019 The first ball of the over enabled the duo of Russell and Shubhman Gill to take an easy single to win the game. Watching the deconstruction of his dreams to finally win an IPL game this season, Kohli stood by the boundary line with his arms raised in amusement and eyes wide open in disbelief. While Twitter fans were awestruck by the Windies allrounder's showdown, our thoughts and prayers go out to the disheartened RCB fans who showed their frustration and anger online: Speechless. #RCBvKKR #VIVOIPL2019 — Royal Challengers (@RCBTweets) April 5, 2019 RCB after every IPL match.. since 2008..#RCBvKKR pic.twitter.com/SMzQ4fIs4O — Another Rohit (@which_rohit) April 5, 2019 Siraj's No ball costed RCB the game?

  12. Another day, another disappointment for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) who continue their winless streak in the twelfth season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) having played four matches and have found themselves at the bottom of the league's points table. After captain Kohli got dismissed by a magnificent Shreyas Gopal (who ended up with a three-wicket-haul), the second RCB opener, Parthiv Patel put the burden on his shoulders to help his side reach a respectable total of 158. Patel's bat contributed with 67 runs off 41 balls which also included 9 boundaries and a maximum. However, Rajasthan Royals (RR) opener Jos Buttler and Steve Smith were too hot to handle for the men in red and gold as they spearheaded Royals to win their first game of the season. Having said that, Tuesday's match against Rajasthan got Virat Kohli an incredible feat to boast about as it provided him with the opportunity to captain an IPL squad for the 100th time and make him only the third cricketer in the world to do so, behind Chennai Super Kings star Mahendra Singh Dhoni (162 matches) and former IPL player, Gautam Gambhir (129 matches between Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi Daredevils. Today our skipper – @imVkohli becomes the third captain in IPL history to play as captain in 100 matches. Congratulations Virat, keep playing bold! #PlayBold pic.twitter.com/Ar5FASqB24 — Royal Challengers (@RCBTweets) April 2, 2019 Ironically, such a record that should normally bring a sense of pride to any athlete, also brings immense shame to RCB skipper as Kohli has the worst record amongst the men who have reached such a status. Amongst the 162 games led by Dhoni, he has a win percentage of 60.24% while Gambhir's is at 55.42% with three and two titles under their belts, respectively. Kohli, on the other hand, is at a below average mark of 46.87% wins as captain. Not to forget the fact that Bengaluru have never won the trophy. With another loss of the season in what appears to be a lost cause, RCB fans have resorted to humour to hide their pain but we see right through it: RCB Fans: When will we win our 1st IPL title???

  13. While the 2019 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) has fared pretty well for majority of the teams so far, the same cannot be said for the likes of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Rajasthan Royals (RR). Both the sides have endured tough defeats and, currently, find themselves searching for their first win this season. Thus, when Bangalore and Rajasthan locked horns in the 14th match of the tournament in Jaipur, both Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane made a few changes to turn their fortunes around. While Royals brought in Stuart Binny and Varun Aaron, Royal Challengers handed a debut to Akshdeep Nath and included the likes of Navdeep Saini and Marcus Stoinis in their line-up. "Why did you pick Stuart Binny against likes of Virat Kohli and ABD. @rajasthanroyals team management:#RRvRCB #IPL2019 pic.twitter.com/ZtbFZqw5YD — Shivam Chowkidar (@itsShivam18) April 2, 2019 And, after the changes were announced, the RCB fans were busy trolling the hosts for their decision to include Binny in their playing XI, especially against the likes of hard-hitting Kohli, AB de Villiers and Shimron Hetmyer. But, that prediction rarely affected Royals, not because Binny bowled just one over, but because Shreyas Gopal came to the party with his wrong'uns. For someone who began his cricketing journey as a middle-order batsman, Gopal, over the years, has come into his own to establish himself as a potent all-rounder. If his technically correct batting strengthens Rajasthan's middle-order, his short bursts of accurate spin bowling gives Rahane an additional option in that regard. On 2nd April, Rajasthan didn't really needed Gopal's batting as his spin bowling proved way too deadly for the RCB's star batsmen. The Karnataka cricketer's wrong'uns sent Kohli and De Villiers packing, and a googly brought an early end to dangerous Hetmyer. Twitter/@IPL Introduced in the seventh over, the 25-year-old bowled an absolute ripper of a delivery to breach Kohli's defence and rattle the stumps. In his next over, Gopal - thanks to another wrong'un - got rid of ABD whose hurried effort to jam his bat down resulted in a simple caught and bowled dismissal. His consistency to pick wickets in every over continued as he got Hetmyer out caught behind the stumps on a googly. 3 - Shreyas Gopal has dismissed AB de Villiers every time he's bowled to him in the #IPL (3 instances). Liking. #IPL2019 #RRvRCB — OptaJim (@OptaJim) April 2, 2019 There are a total of 19 instances where a bowler managed to dismiss Kohli and De Villiers in the same innings in the IPL. But, thanks to his latest exploits, Gopal became only the second bowler to do so twice after RCB's current bowling coach Ashish Nehra. He had also dismissed the two star batsmen in the same innings last season. Thanks to his impressive figures of 3-12, Rajasthan managed to restrict Bangalore to 158/4 before chasing down the total with seven wickets and a delivery to spare. Rightly adjudged the 'Man of the Match', Gopal's brilliant spell had everyone singing his praise. Great reaction from Shreyas Gopal to getting Kohli bowled.

  14. Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), a team which contains one of the best players in the world, but still couldn't win anything till now. Since the first edition of the Indian Premier League, RCB has been known for more of a one-man show and not a team effort, be it the squad of Anil Kumble, Daniel Vettori or now of Virat Kohli, there have always been one or two players who have played well while the rest of the team has struggled to find their form. With the trio of Ab De Villiers, Chris Gayle and Kohli coming together, many thought that this would surely bring them the trophy. But despite reaching the final twice in the presence of these icons, RCB could never manage to get their hands on the cup. © AP In the last season also, around 60 per cent runs were scored by Kohli and De Villiers, who despite scoring well for their team, couldn't get them past the finishing line. The same old story was repeated in yesterday's game where the men in red lost to the 'MI Paltans' only because no one else stood up for the team other than Kolhi and ABD. After Moeen Ali and Parthiv Patel failed to provide a stable start, Kohli came to the rescue of the team and scored a crucial 46 before getting caught on a well directed short ball by Jasprit Bumrah. Once he left, De Villiers took the charge, but the constant pressure of not getting out stopped him from playing his shots. Though he did manage to play the anchor innings of 67, he never got the support from the other end to wrap the game in their corner. © AP The only solution we can think of from this discussion, is that if RCB wants to get anywhere near the cup, then everyone in the team needs to start taking responsibility of their actions rather than putting the pressure on the main two to three players.
  15. Not to lead anyone to the horrible trap of superstition and unfounded belief systems, but we have to pay attention to the fact that when it comes to Virat Kohli and his Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) , their fate is doomed at the Indian Premier League (IPL) ever since the franchise was introduced in 2008. Having made it to just three IPL finals (2009, 2011 and 2016), RCB has never won a single title despite the team being loaded with world-class talents from the best squads seen at the international cricketing level. Ever since Kohli took up the role of the leader of the team ahead of the 2014 season of the league, his run as the skipper is flooded with unfortunate losses, embarrassing moments (RCB hold the record for the lowest IPL total of 49 runs) and heartbreaking exits from the tournament through the years. One such incident took place on Thursday in a nerve-racking game against Rohit Sharma's Mumbai Indians (MI). With Bengaluru needing seven runs off the final delivery of match, the loss was almost certain for the players in red and gold. Mumbai pacer and Sri Lankan legend Lasith Malinga let out a full-toss to an unprepared batsman in Shivam Dube who managed to connect and failed to take a single run. The twist however comes at a technical level. While Malinga took his run-up for the final ball, he overstepped which usually calls for the umpire to call it a 'no-ball'. This time around, the on-field umpire S. Ravi missed the call, resulting in RCB's unfortunate loss. Bed and poor umpiring by the umpires if the umpire consider the no ball the result was different and gone to RCB's sideðð captain Kohli says the same thing that,"umpires ko ankhain khuli rakhni chahiain!!!"ð ð¤ð¡........ pic.twitter.com/neTAlxM4lm — Imakash_n6.o (@akash_nad) March 29, 2019 What makes this incident even more excruciating is the 'what if' factor. If the umpire had called out for the 'no-ball', it not only would have resulted in an extra delivery but also an additional run awarded to Kohli's side making it possible for them to win with a maximum at the last ball. When Kohli was approached after the game, he was ready to share a piece of his mind with the public. Without holding back anything Kohli charged at the umpire for messing it up big time and very rightly so. "We are playing at the IPL level. We are not playing club cricket. That is just a ridiculous call -- last ball. The umpires should have their eyes open. It was a no-ball by an inch. It's completely different game altogether,” said a furious Kohli. “If it is a game of margins, I don't know what is happening. They should have been more sharp and careful out there."

  16. Christopher Henry Gayle, probably the best T20 batsman in the world, has once again proven why he owns that title. Opening his Indian Premier League campaign against Rajasthan Royals(RR) on Monday, Gayle of Kings XI Punjab(KXIP) bagged the man of the match award for playing a glorious knock of 79 runs in 47 balls, consisting of 4 sixes and 8 boundaries. Starting off slow and settling himself first was something new that we fans got to witness. Though many would say that he had a particular reason to do that, which was him needing a mere seven more runs to become the fastest person to reach 4000 IPL runs. But even after reaching that peak, he made sure that he played very carefully and didn't start firing straight-away. He took his time and once he was settled, he blasted in all directions of the Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur.

  17. As the twelfth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) came calling with a scintillating contest between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), the cricket fans geared up for multiple individual clashes that the opening match had to offer. While many were keen to witness the battle between 'Captain Cool' MS Dhoni and 'Captain Fearless' Virat Kohli, others were eager to see the contest between RCB's explosive batting line-up and CSK's experienced bowling unit. Amongst the key battles, there was one between Suresh Raina and the RCB skipper in the race to reach 5,000 runs in the IPL. Ahead of the IPL opener, Raina had amassed 4,985 runs in 3,601 balls (1167 dots, 1533 singles, 256 twos, 11 threes, 448 fours, 1 five and 185 sixes) in the tournament. He was just 15 runs shy of becoming the first player to score 5,000 IPL runs. Twitter/@IPL On the other hand, Kohli had scored 4,948 runs in 3,784 balls (1319 dots, 1575 singles, 266 twos, 11 threes, 435 fours and 178 sixes) in the IPL. While Raina looked in touching distance, Kohli needed 52 runs to achieve the unique feat. But, after Dhoni won the toss and asked RCB to bat first, many would have probably tipped the Indian captain to reach there first. But, contrary to popular perception, Kohli, akin to majority of his teammates, had a forgettable outing as he was sent back into the hut for just six runs. On a raging turner of a track at the MA Chidambaram stadium, perennial underachievers RCB were bowled out for a mere 70 runs. Twitter/@IPL With Kohli bottling his opportunity, all eyes were on Raina when he came out to bat in the third over. After surviving a run-out scare (thanks to Mohammad Siraj's fumble while collecting the ball), Raina tickled the ball towards fine leg for an easy single in the ninth over, etching his name in the history books as the first-ever player to complete 5,000 runs in the IPL.

  18. More often than not, the busy travelling schedule of the members of the Indian cricket team does not allow the Men in Blue to stay at home during major festivals, surrounded by their loved ones, their friends and family. A couple of years ago, the captain of the Indian side, Virat Kohli, while sending his wishes for the festival of colours in 2017, he said that his Holi would be spent on the road as the roster was going to Patna for a series.

There was a small gap between the tiring ODI series against the visiting and the twelfth season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) and the festival fell on such a day that all the cricketers of the Indian squad were at home, happily celebrating the festival of 'good over evil' with their loved ones. "Happy Holi to everyone! Let's celebrate the vibrant hues, the beautiful relationships and the joyous laughter," Virat Kohli wrote in a Tweet. Shikhar Dhawan, who is currently in India preparing for the IPL, shared an emotional post on Instagram. While celebrating the festival with his mother, 'Gabbar' expressed his joy of watching his kids get in on the fun, thousands of miles away, in Australia.

  19. What can be more exciting for an Indian sports fan than seeing two of the country's biggest sporting icons come together? Recently, one of the best cricketers in the world, Virat Kohli, invited the prolific skipper of the Indian football team, Sunil Chhetri, who has more goals for his country than Leo Messi for Argentina, to a net session with the Royal Challengers Bangalore squad. © AP As we all know, both the skippers get along really well and have a history of making their friendship known publicly. Last year, Kohli reiterated Chhetri's plea to support Indian football and this year, Chhetri showing up at his training camp shows the growing bromance between both the icons. This meeting was just another chapter in their bromance. Both Chhetri and Kohli looked quite dynamic on the field. While the football skipper was cheered by his recent exploits in the Indian Super League (ISL) with Bengaluru FC, it was interesting to see King Kohli smiling, especially after his team, FC Goa ended up on the losing side against Chettri's Banglore FC 1-0 in the final of the tournament. © AP Keeping their ISL loyalties aside, both the players were seen sharing a laugh at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore. A video uploaded by a fan page shows Kohli giving a heart-warming welcome to his beloved friend before the RCB squad. Later in the day, both went on sharing a few dribbles and strokes on the field. View this post on Instagram @chetri_sunil11 today with @royalchallengersbangalore team at Chinnaswamy ! ðâ¤ï¸ A post shared by BleedKohlism2.0ðµ (@bleedingkohlism) on Mar 19, 2019 at 5:57am PDT On the one hand, where Chhetri's side just wrapped up their league season, Kohli & Co are gearing up for the Indian Premier League opening match against the defending champions Chennai Super Kings on 23rd March. This season, Kohli and his men will be hoping to better their disappointing IPL records and showcase their true worth on the field.
  20. With the Indian Premier League (IPL) less than a week away, passionate fans of the game and more specifically, the league, now have some serious shade thrown by former captain of the Indian cricket team at the current Indian skipper, to discuss and have quarrels over. In an analysis show ahead of the biggest cricketing league in the world initiates, Gautam Gambhir took a killshot at Virat Kohli's abilities as a captain for the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). “I don't see him as a shoot captain or a tactful captain. And he hasn't won the IPL,” said the former Delhi Daredevils (DD) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) captain on the show. “Ultimately a captain is only as good as his record till.” Ever since the league came into existence in 2008, Virat Kohli has been a part of the RCB family. Signed under what was known as a 'Youth Contract' for a mere $30,000, Kohli slowly worked his way up the success ladder with the franchise, year by year. After being the only player to be retained by the team before the 2011 season began, Kohli was promoted to the role of vice-captain and even captained the squad on a couple of occasions when former Kiwi skipper Daniel Vettori went down with an injury. Following his success with the Indian cricket team, as he became one of the more recognised men of the game, for his exceptional batting, charged-up attitude and the knack to take challenges head on, Kohli was named the permanent captain of the RCB roster after Vettori bid adieu to the format. However, what Gambhir pointed out about Kohli's performance when it comes to IPL, has a lot of sense in it. There's no doubting the man's contribution towards Team India's ascension in international cricket. Under Kohli's captaincy, India has been great but the 30-year-old has failed to provide similar output for his Bangalore team. Gambhir also said: “There are people who have won the trophy three times - MS Dhoni and Rohit Sharma. So I think he has a long way to go. You cannot compare him to someone like Rohit or Dhoni at this stage...” While players like Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Rohit Sharma have had the privilege to host the IPL trophy in their cities for three seasons each and even Gambhir lifting the cup in 2012 and 2014, Kohli hasn't even had the opportunity to get a whiff of it. Getting eliminated in the league stages in most of the seasons, Kohli and the RCB gang has made it to the IPL Final thrice, only to be put down by Hyderabad Deccan Chargers, Chennai Super Kings and SunRisers Hyderabad in the years 2009, 2011 and 2016, respectively. According to Gambhir, Kohli should thank the decision-makers of the Royal Challengers franchise for continuing to have faith in him and letting him be the captain despite the below-average results simply because of the fact that not a lot of other players have enjoyed such trust and have been dethroned from captaincy for far less. Gautam Gambhir's final season with the Delhi Daredevils comes to mind keeping things in similar context when after a bad start to the season, his duty as the leader of the team was taken away by the team-owners and given to a rookie like Shreyas Iyer. It's sad but it's true.
  21. The world's most celebrated cricket festival, the Indian Premier League (IPL), has begun taking a toll on its fans even before its arrival. Energising and pitting the fans against each other is one of the main elements which keeps the excitement-level at its peak. And what better way to kick off the season than highlighting the rivalry between two of the most beloved and legendary players of Indian cricket, MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli? Both the master-class skippers will cross swords after almost a year when their respective IPL teams, Royal Challenger Bangalore(RCB) and Chennai Super Kings(CSK) kick off this season in Chennai on 23rd March 2019. Continuing the buzz created by the earlier promo of Rishabh Pant and Jasprit Bumrah pulling the legs of Dhoni and Kohli, the advertisers this time went to the next level by depicting how the megastars have succeeded in dividing the loyalties of the Indian cricket fans. Thala vs King â vs ð¥ ð vs ⤠Whose game will your heart beat for when defending champions @ChennaiIPL take on @RCBTweets in the first #VIVOIPL clash?

Enjoying a good view of the feud while sipping on hot tea, the CSK skipper tells his RCB counterpart, "don't be late" in what promises to be a cracker of an opening game between the top two teams. Focusing on the concept of 'game more than the name,' Kohli sarcastically replies saying “sure” while covering dhoni's glass with an RCB coaster, highlighting the chemistry between the best friends. Keeping in mind their title victory in their comeback season last year, CSK will be hoping to continue the same form, whereas Kohli and Co, on the other hand, had a disaster of a season last year and will be looking forward to starting strong. Meanwhile, fans, not waiting for the actual battle on the field, have already started their feud on social media to prove that their team is the best. @imVkohli RCB will win this match...â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸ Kohli kohli kohli kohli kohli kohli kohli kohli kohli kohli kohli kohli kohli kohli kohli kohli kohli kohli...... — Girraj Sharma18 (@GirrajS30956768) March 14, 2019 Dhoni Dhoni Dhoni... just couldn't stop laughing at 15 seconds !!!

  22. In today's era of sports where fame is directly related to fortune, ESPN has come up with a list of 100 of the most famous athletes from all over the world who enjoy a great fan following. What criteria were taken into consideration while forming the list? According to the website, the list was based on the stats in three different areas: 1. Search Score: How often is the name of the particular sportsperson looked up on the internet. The list fixes Cristiano Ronaldo's score of 100 as the baseline and the rest of the athletes were ranked accordingly. 2. Endorsement Dollars: Based on the reports provided by credible sources such as Forbes on the athletes' monetary worth based solely on their endorsement earnings. 3. Social Media Followers: The total number of followers the athletes have across all social media platforms including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. However, keeping in mind that not a lot of the famous athletes are not present on every social media platform, the numbers of their most famous account has been taken into account. After going through such a gruelling yet organised method of research, here is the list of the 10 most famous athletes of the world: For the fourth year in a row, Cristiano Ronaldo tops our ranking of the biggest names in sports: ESPN World Fame 100. pic.twitter.com/z25QVCqTzD — ESPN UK (@ESPNUK) March 12, 2019 1. Cristiano Ronaldo 2. Lebron James 3. Lionel Messi 4. Neymar Jr. 5. Conor McGregor 6. Roger Federer 7. Virat Kohli 8. Rafael Nadal 9. Stephen Curry 10. Tiger Woods While the top four players mentioned in the list are without doubt deserving, the fact that Conor McGregor was ranked fifth, especially with athletes like Roger Federer and Virat Kohli's immense popularity, seems a bit odd. ESPN World Fame 100 - 2019 list: 1. Cristiano Ronaldo 2. LeBron James 3. Lionel Messi 4. Neymar 5. Mcgregor 6. Roger Federer 7. VIRAT KOHLI 8. Rafael Nadal 9. Stephen Curry 10. Tiger Woods pic.twitter.com/jiGj0FvWfs — Mohammed Ibrahim Farooqui (@iBM1105) March 12, 2019 We also have to keep in mind that the list comes after whatever actions the numerous athletes took back in 2018. McGregor's memorable bout with Floyd 'Money' Mayweather definitely catapulted his name's worth amongst the audience that followed sports other than MMA. Following that, the major rivalry between the Irishman and his Russian opponent Khabib Abdulmanapovich Nurmagomedov which became uglier after the fight, also must have played a huge role, especially in the 'Search Score' and 'Social Media Following' categories. Having said that, the Indian cricket team's captain Virat Kohli too had the best year of his career. Winning all the three top ICC awards for his brilliance in every format of the game, namely Men's Cricketer of the Year, Test and ODI Cricketer of the Year. He was also named the captain for both ODI and Test Team of the Year.
  23. The 2019 Lok Sabha election is around the corner. In a democracy, this is the time when the people of the society must voice their opinion and elect the leader that they believe will not only understand the sufferings of the public but also actively make suitable decisions to deal with them. While a steady increase in the percentage of votes polled has been noted in the last three nationals elections ie; 58.1% in 2004, 58.2% in 2009 and 66.4% in 2014 (source: data.gov.in), the overall voting turnout continues to be very low, especially for a country that boasts of being the largest democracy in the world. Thus, the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi took to Twitter to urge some of the biggest influencers of our country including cricketers like Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Virat Kohli, and Rohit Sharma to “inspire the 130 crore people of India” to take some time out of their day to vote during the 2019 elections. All the aforementioned cricketers enjoy massive fan-followings, a major part of which comprises of the younger generation who have finally come of age to exercise their right to vote in the last five years. Dear @msdhoni, @imVkohli and @ImRo45, You are always setting outstanding records on the cricketing field but this time, do inspire the 130 crore people of India to set a new record of high voter turnout in the upcoming elections. When this happens, democracy will be the winner! — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 13, 2019 “Dear @msdhoni [MS Dhoni], @imVkohli [Virat Kohli] and @ImRo45 [Rohit Sharma], You are always setting outstanding records on the cricketing field but this time, do inspire the 130 crore people of India to set a new record of high voter turnout in the upcoming elections,” Tweets PM Modi. “When this happens, democracy will be the winner!” He goes on to urge some of the other megastars of the Indian sports fraternity to come forward and do their bit in creating awareness and asking their followers to vote: Dear @anilkumble1074, @VVSLaxman281 and @virendersehwag - your heroic deeds on the cricket pitch have inspired millions. Come, it is time to inspire people once again, this time to vote in record numbers. — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 13, 2019 Dear @srikidambi, @Pvsindhu1 & @NSaina, The core of badminton is the court and the core of democracy is the vote. Just like you smash records, do also inspire a record-breaking voter turnout. I request you to increase voter awareness & motivate youth to vote in large numbers. — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 13, 2019 The prolific Phogat sisters, @geeta_phogat, @BabitaPhogat, @PhogatRitu and @Phogat_Vinesh manifest the best of Indian sporting talent. We've seen you in the wrestling world. I urge you all to support the movement to ensure greater voter participation in the 'Chunavi Dangal.' — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 13, 2019 When @mangeshkarlata Didi, @sachin_rt and @arrahman say something, the nation takes note! I humbly request these remarkable personalities to inspire more citizens to come out and vote in the 2019 elections. A vote is a great way to make the people's voice heard. — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 13, 2019 India is proud of @Neeraj_chopra1, @DuttYogi and @WrestlerSushil. However, they made India win because they participated. I request Neeraj, Yogeshwar and Sushil to encourage people to participate in the elections and vote so that India wins here too! — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 13, 2019
  24. You remember the English wicket keeper-batsman Ben Duckett, right? No? Well, we don't blame you. He used to play for the main English roster all the way back in 2016, before they became really, really good and one of the top contenders for the upcoming ICC World Cup 2019. However, the lefty has been sent to their second-tier level team called 'England Lions' that recently lost to India's second-tier squad 'India A' in the One-dayers and unofficial Test series at the latter's soil. While the southpaw did have a brilliant 50-run innings during the second unofficial Test in Mysore, he would be better known to the Indian cricket fans as 'the guy who tried to troll Virat Kohli'. Even after the Indian captain bagged his career's 40th ODI in Ranchi, the Men in Blue lost to a rejuvenated Australian cricket team who took a breath of fresh air and have been dominating ever since (checkout Australia's exceptional run-chase in the fourth ODI at Mohali). Post the defeat, a cricket-enthu Twitter account trivially asked a fill in the blank question: Complete the sentence. Virat Kohli is _______________ — Cricket Shouts (@crickshouts) March 8, 2019 While the question got a lot of positive reactions like calling his “annoyingly good” and “a batsman even better than Sachin Tendulkar”, there was one particular response that was put under that spotlight. Ben Duckett's response: A joke?.............................. https://t.co/APryZGy3lf — Ben Duckett (@BenDuckett1) March 8, 2019 Apparently, Duckett called Virat Kohli “a joke” in order to show his regards towards the genius of the batsman, maybe somethings in the lines of 'he is a joke to the ODI format because he is that good', but the Viratians weren't buying it. It is plausible that as soon as the Englishman tweeted, he regretted his decision as he was hit by a barrage of raging Indian fans who called him out. Get ready for yet another episode of abusements. — Mufaddal Vohra (@mufaddal_vohra) March 8, 2019 pic.twitter.com/7LyJnVFM5z — Scorpio (@IND_Scorpio) March 9, 2019 Virat Kohli is you fatherð — itz_me_wahed (@Waheduzzaman15) March 9, 2019 Ben duckett pic.twitter.com/wyJYFlPsdu — Shreyas (@DeaconSG97) March 9, 2019 Do you even play cricket anymore Ben?ðððð — Daniel Clark (@DanClincs) March 9, 2019 Hey Ben , not talking about your career here — Ishan Mishrað®ð³ (@ishan31396) March 9, 2019 After watching a former teammate take in so much heat, Ben Stokes (https://www.mensxp.com/sports/cricket/39889-ben-stokes-brawl-why-england-s-bad-boy-needs-a-role-model-to-be-actually-be-one-for-his-fans.html) sent in a friendly word of advice: ð¤¦‍âï¸ð¤¦‍âï¸ð¤¦‍âï¸ð¤¦‍âï¸ why?

  25. After taking a crucial 2-0 lead in the five-match series, the Indian cricket team's marauding run came to a halt as Australia romped their way to a 32-run triumph in the 3rd One-Day International (ODI) at the JSCA international stadium in Ranchi. For a team that is considered one of the strongest batting units in international cricket, Indian batsmen, barring Virat Kohli, failed to negate the Aussies in the third match of the series. But, on 10th March, the batting woes that had given India a reality check in Ranchi were nowhere to be found as the hosts romped their way to a mammoth 358-run total in the 4th ODI at the Punjab Cricket Association stadium in Mohali. Opting to bat first, India were given a sensational start by Shikhar Dhawan (143) and Rohit Sharma (95) who hammered the opposition bowlers all around the park during their 193-run opening partnership. If the openers got India to a flyer, the pivotal cameos by Rishabh Pant (36) and Vijay Shankar (26) ensured their side didn't lose momentum later in the game. Twitter/@BCCI While there was no shortage of star performers during India's innings, there was one man who stole the limelight from the rest. Arguably one of the best death-overs bowlers in limited-overs cricket, Jasprit Bumrah is known for his bowling prowess and ability to get the better of some of the best batsmen in business. But, when he came out to face Pat Cummins for the final delivery of India's innings, neither a cricket pundit, nor any fan would have anticipated what Bumrah had in store for them.

But, it wasn't meant to be as Bumrah smashed the length delivery over midwicket for a towering six. And, while Bumrah's hit was quite surprising, the reactions were pretty obvious.

Walking off with a wide grin, Bumrah was mighty pleased with his six which powered India to 358-run total in the end. It was the first six for Bumrah in international cricket. He now has seven sixes to his name, four in List A games and three in T20s. That last six from Bumrah had everyone in splits. Even on an excellent batting surface, 358 is a formidable score. — Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) March 10, 2019 That last six from Bumrah had everyone in splits.
