  1. Ahead of the ICC World Cup in England and Wales, as soon as the schedule was announced, the date 16th June was earmarked by cricket fans on their respective calendars, as they rearranged their schedule to accommodate for the highly-anticipated clash between India and Pakistan. A little over two weeks into the tournament, the mother of all battles was finally there, pitting arch-rivals India and Pakistan against each other. While inclement weather was expected to disrupt the proceedings at Old Trafford in Manchester, the fans were still unnerved with anticipations of an exciting contest. But, what eventually unfolded on the 'D-day' was hard to fathom. Despite their dismal record against India at the ICC events, the Pakistani cricket team was expected to put up a good show against their arch-rivals, especially after getting the better of them in the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy. But, contrary to popular perception, the Sarfaraz Ahmed-led side failed to negate the Indian challenge and fell flat in what proved to be a one-sided affair. On a big day, India's big-name batsmen delivered. Here are their best shots! #INDvPAK #CWC19 #TeamIndia pic.twitter.com/kIta58HmAc — ICC (@ICC) June 16, 2019 Rohit Sharma's blistering knock of 140 runs had powered India to a formidable total of 336 runs. And, in reply, Pakistan were humbled by the Indian bowling unit, even when they lost frontline bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar to an untimely injury in the fifth over. Poor shot selection, lack of temperament and failure to stitch key partnerships, all added to the downfall of Pakistan in their forgettable 89-run loss (D/L). If losing to their arch-rivals wasn't enough, the poor performance by the Pakistani cricketers further left their fans baffled. Guiding his team to a famous win on the back of a 'Man of the Match' performance, Rohit was visibly happy in the post-match press conference. But, after winning everyone over with his formidable show with the bat, Rohit took the social media by storm for his response to a journalist's query. Watch Kuldeep Yadav's magical delivery to dismiss Babar Azam, and all the other Pakistan wickets #INDvPAK #CWC19 #TeamIndia pic.twitter.com/ybqvLYy9Ul — ICC (@ICC) June 16, 2019 Given their epic batting collapse, Pakistani batsmen became the subject of immense criticism following their loss. Thus, it made sense when one of the Pakistani journalists asked Rohit if he'd like to give some advice to the Pakistani batsmen for their struggle so far in the ongoing ICC spectacle.

Thus, in response to the journo's query, the 'Hitman' said: "Agar main Pakistan ka coach bana to main bataunga, abhi kya bataunga! (If I become the coach of Pakistan then surely I will tell you. What can I say now!)". While his witty response left everyone at the press conference in splits, it also struck a chord with cricket fans on social media.

  2. Indian opener Rohit Sharma has now scored at least 50 runs in every match he has played in during the ongoing ICC World Cup 2019. In the match against Sarfaraz Ahmed's Team Pakistan, Sharma did it in only 34 deliveries while giving the Men in Blue the ideal start to one of the most important games marked on their calendar. What a start from Rohit Sharma! He's raced to his fifty! â¡ #CWC19 | #INDvPAK | #TeamIndia pic.twitter.com/Vy7r6cABaV — ICC (@ICC) June 16, 2019 During this feat, Sharma surpassed former Indian skipper and wicket keeping legend, Mahendra Singh Dhoni's record for smashing the most number of sixes in international cricket. While Dhoni has smashed the ball for a total of 355 maximums combining all formats of international cricket, Sharma's first six of the match against Pakistan got him to surpass this achievement of Dhoni's. After forming a brilliant 100-plus run partnership with KL Rahul, the 'Hitman' was able to score his second ton of the ICC World Cup 2019 in less than 90 balls, making this his fastest century among the 24 he has scored in ODIs till date. WHAT AN INNINGS! India opener Rohit Sharma brings up his century off just 85 balls. How many more can he add to his tally from here? #TeamIndia | #CWC19 pic.twitter.com/j1z8OSoCf4 — ICC (@ICC) June 16, 2019 What an innings!
  3. After waiting for more than a week since their warm-up match against Bangladesh, the Indian cricket team finally made their ICC World Cup 2019 debut against Faf du Plessis' South African team and played a wonderful game of ODI cricket in chasing a minimal yet tricky mark of 228. Four wickets by @yuzi_chahal and a devastating opening spell by @Jaspritbumrah93 saw #TeamIndia limit South Africa to 227 runs. Watch all the wickets here! ⤵ #CWC19 pic.twitter.com/2zXVB5XMnw — ICC (@ICC) June 5, 2019 While a huge chunk of the credit for the victory goes to Yuzvendra Chahal for his 4-wicket-haul and Jasprit Bumrah's highly effective and economical bowling (economy of 3.5 runs), there was one man who stood between the Proteas and their first win of the Cricket World Cup 2019 like a brick wall, Rohit Sharma. But it was #TeamIndia's day, their successful chase led by a superb ð¯ to @imro45 which included 13 boundaries and a pair of sixes. Watch the highlights here! ð #CWC19 pic.twitter.com/iKt5er9r82 — ICC (@ICC) June 5, 2019 Scoring a brilliant and unbeaten 122 of 144 deliveries, the 'Hitman' stuck to the crease despite his opening partner, Shikhar Dhawan and skipper Virat Kohli being removed from the pitch quickly. As the opener for the Indian batting order, Sharma stayed in the middle of the action right from the beginning till the end and saw Hardik Pandya be done with the match with a crackling boundary in the 48th over. Now, Rohit Sharma is one of the greatest batsmen to put on the blue jersey and represent our nation in international competitions but you've got to agree that the 'Luck Gods' were smiling at him throughout the match saving him from heading back to the pavilion on multiple occasions. © Reuters Ever since the first over, Sharma's wicket was up for grabs. First he unintentionally flicked the ball to the backward square leg but the fielder was two to three steps away from the spot where the ball landed, then he was dropped between point and backward point. South African skipper, Faf du Plessis also dropped Sharma's catch at second slip and finally Sharma survived yet another scare thanks to David Miller who dropped a dolly at silly mid off late in the game. So, there are only two logical reasonings for Rohit Sharma getting so many lives at the crease last night. Either the Proteas fielding was just horrible and deserves all the criticism in the world, or, it was Nita Ambani and her world-renowned beliefs that provided Rohit Sharma with the kind of luck he needed in his 2019 World Cup opener. And the fine people of Twitter seems to concur with this theory: Faf after the match : If nita ambani hadn't visited the stadium rohit sharma wouldn't had scored a century and we would had taken those catches.....#INDvSA — Jammy (@The_WaLLLLLLL) June 5, 2019 When Nita Ambani spotted in the stadium Rohit Sharma : ððð¤£ð¤£ð¤£ pic.twitter.com/njL8B4TWDX — Thakur S P Parmar ð®ð³ (@IamErSPSingh) June 5, 2019 Hope Nita Ambani has tickets to all the games...

Believe us, we even spoke to her Pandit ji. Hello Nita Ambani can you please accompany India on the world cup tour!!! Just to do that!! #IPLFinal pic.twitter.com/yDmWU3FdRW — shilpi tewari (@shilpitewari) May 12, 2019
  4. For someone who began his career as a middle-order batsman, Rohit Sharma has come into his own ever since MS Dhoni and the Indian team management identified him as a threatening opening batsman. Over the years, batting at the top, Rohit has not only turned his career around, but also provided India the luxury of an indispensable opener. A vital cog in the Indian batting line-up, Rohit came into the ICC World Cup with a lot of expectations on his shoulders. With his team tipped as one of the top contenders this year, the right-hander was quite understandably bestowed with the responsibility of getting them to a good start. And, on 5th June, Rohit, once again, proved why he is rated so highly by the Indian team management and all the cricket experts across the globe. Beginning their campaign against a team of South Africa's calibre was never going to be easy, but a spectacular show by the Indian bowling unit did tilt the game in favour of the 'Men in Blue'. Impressive figures by Yuzvendra Chahal (4-51) and Jasprit Bumrah (2-35) ensured that the Proteas were restricted to a mediocre total of 227 runs at the loss of nine wickets. Reuters Though the target appeared mediocre, but if anyone saw the conditions and pitch behave in the first-half of the match, they'd agree that it was going to take some doing for India to register their first points in the tournament. And, that's exactly what happened. Against the searing pace and impeccable lengths of sprinting Kagiso Rabada, the Indian openers looked far from being comfortable with both Shikhar Dhawan (8) and Rohit struggling early on. After the game of cat and mouse, pressure got to Dhawan as he edged one off Rabada through to Quinton de Kock behind the stumps. With the Proteas quicks smelling blood, the Indian side needed their batsmen at the crease to oversee the troublesome times and apply themselves in a bid to stitch a partnership - something Rohit and Virat Kohli (18) tried to do following Dhawan's dismissal. The duo added 41 runs for the second wicket and were eager to stabilise India's run-chase when Andile Phehlukwayo struck to send Kohli packing - courtesy a spectacular catch by De Kock. Reuters With his captain back in the hut, Rohit put his best foot forward and decided to carry the baton for his side. The Mumbai batsman gave himself enough time at the crease to settle in and, unlike his teammates, he didn't force his shots against the odd ball. On the other hand, Rohit was also impressive in rotating the strike which allowed him, and in turn India, to stitch strong partnerships. After partnering Kohli, Rohit was involved in an 85-run partnership for the third wicket with KL Rahul (26) who looked good for the better part of his innings in the much-debated No. 4 slot. But, Rahul's dismissal in the 32nd over at the hands of Rabada once again got India in a spot of bother. Top century from Rohit Sharma. Composed, relaxed. Rode the early tension well and has been a picture of certainty since — Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) June 5, 2019 Unnerved by the pressure, Rohit continued to steer the chase for India after finding some support from MS Dhoni (34). The two experienced batsmen added 74 runs for the fourth wicket and almost nullified the threat Rabada & co. posed in the middle. As the game neared its end, India lost Dhoni, but Rohit's presence in the middle ensured the team remained on track. Reuters While the winning runs came from the blade of swashbuckling Hardik Pandya (15*), it was arguably Rohit's superlative knock of 122 runs including 10 fours and two sixes that made the difference. Calm ,composed and a wonderful century from @ImRo45 ! Fantastic understanding of the situation ! — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) June 5, 2019 On a track where batsmen from both sides struggled to get going, Rohit showed great composure and temperament in his match-winning innings. Curbing his natural, aggressive game, Rohit adapted to the conditions and sacrificed certain shots from his armoury to ensure his survival at the crease. Owing to experience and know-how of the game, the Indian opener got his team over the line and notched up his second World Cup hundred and get India off to a winning start in the tournament. A wonderful, mature innings from Rohit Sharma. Great assessment of the situation and seeing India through to the win in the end, a hallmark of top players @ImRo45 . A well begun World Cup campaign for Team India #INDvSA pic.twitter.com/Hmul57c4BO — VVS Laxman (@VVSLaxman281) June 5, 2019 It was also Rohit's 23rd ODI hundred which allowed him to go past Sourav Ganguly (22) in the list of India's all-time top hundred makers in the 50-over format. He is now placed third in the elite list with just Sachin Tendulkar (49) and Kohli (41) ahead of him. Following their emphatic six-wicket triumph, the Kohli brigade will hope that Rohit continues his fine run when they take the field against Australia in the much-anticipated clash at The Oval on 9th June.
  5. After patiently waiting for seven days in the tournament, the Indian cricket team finally started their campaign at the ICC World Cup against South Africa in Southampton on 5th June. While the Indian fans were forced to wait to see their team in action, the late start for 'Men in Blue' at the ICC spectacle also meant that they had enough time to prepare - something that was in full display at the Rose Bowl stadium. Losing the toss, the Indian team found themselves bowling against the South African batting line-up, focussed on piling up a big score in a bid to record their first win in three games. But, it wasn't meant to be - thanks to a spectacular bowling performance by India. With Jasprit Bumrah getting his angles and seam movement to trouble the South African openers early on, everyone knew that a wicket was around the corner. While many suspected Quinton de Kock to became the first victim, it was Hashim Amla who eventually turned out to be the first scalp for Bumrah. Reuters In the fourth over, Bumrah's good length delivery, pitched just outside off, forced Amla to defend from the crease - a mistake that was eventually going to cost South Africa their first wicket. Deploying his defensive push, Amla couldn't help but edge the ball through towards the second slip where anxious Rohit Sharma got down just in time to grab it cleanly. It was a beautifully set-up dismissal where the bowler's line and length combined perfectly with the field setting, deployed in anticipation of the opposition batsman's shot. If Bumrah's early breakthrough got the Indian fans on the edge of their seats, Rohit's unique celebration after taking the catch doubled the fun on social media.

  6. After swimming in a pool of controversies, Hrithik Roshan's 'Super 30' is finally going to hit the theatres soon and the trailer that just dropped proves that it's going to be one of the most promising films of 2019. Phantom Films Ever since it was announced that a biopic is being made on Anand Kumar, founder of Super 30, starring Hrithik Roshan, the film has made more news than most of our mathematics scores combined. For those who didn't know, Super 30 is an academy that trains meritorious students from underprivileged backgrounds for JEE exams 'for free'. Phantom Films The 2-minute 37 seconds trailer shows Hrithik Roshan as Anand Kumar, a genius mathematician who is a celebrity among students for his unbelievable success rate when it comes to coaching. However, he gives up his lucrative job to help the underprivileged kids and ensure that every deserving kid gets a chance to make it big in the world. Phantom Films The dialogue, "Ab Raja ka beta raja nahi banega. Raja woh hi banega, jo haqdaar hoga", will go down in the history of Bollywood as one of the most impressive and hard-hitting dialogues ever. Also, can we take a moment to appreciate the reverse-transformation that Hrithik went through for the character? He has not only nailed the look, but his accent is also worth an applaud. Recently the biopic found itself in trouble, when Anand Kumar's former students accused him of lying and hiding facts, and when director Vikas Bahl was accused of sexual harassment. Despite surrounded by controversies, 'Super 30' is releasing on July 12.
  7. If Hollywood has Marvel Cinematic Universe, then here in Bollywood we have Rohit Shetty and his 'Singham Cinematic Universe', where cops are greater and powerful than any superhero out there. Honestly, cop movies in Bollywood weren't as big a thing until the release of 'Singham'. Post the 100-crore (each) success of 'Singham', 'Singham Returns' and 'Simmba', Rohit Shetty is now coming up with another cop movie 'Sooryavanshi' starring Akshay Kumar. And Ajay Devgn feels that the 'Singham' franchise can be Bollywood's 'Avengers'. In a recent interview to PTI, Ajay said "Universes have a massive scope in Bollywood. 'Singham' is a strong franchise and then 'Simmba' has become another important series, and now if 'Sooryavanshi' goes on to become something like that, which I'm sure it will, it's the same thing as 'Avengers'." He further said that while MCU picked up superheroes, in India cops like "Singham and Simmba" are the superheroes, "So we're trying to make our world. We are taking it into a more realistic zone." © Instagram In fact, Ajay believes that all those people who like the Marvel Cinematic Universe will lap up Rohit Shetty's cop universe in no time. "Either you are an Iron Man fan or any other Avengers', now that all of them came together for a film, one will definitely go. Every superhero's fan would go, it's as simple as that. If these characters also go on to become that strong, then people would wait for something like this." © Instagram Praising 'Avengers: Endgame', Ajay said Bollywood should learn a lesson from the box office performance of the film and also spoke about how competing with Hollywood is not possible due to financial constraints. (Folks, let's not count the number of cars blown up in the entire franchise.) Apart from 'Sooryavanshi', Rohit Shetty is also planning to make a movie on female cops to complete his cop-universe. Can I say Russo Brothers have got nothing on Rohit Shetty and Singham? Of course, I can.
  8. Honoured with the name, 'Hitman', Indian cricket team's opener, Rohit Gurunath Sharma is on top of the cricketing world for all the right reasons. Currently donned with the duty to lead the Men in Blue into international series in the absence of Virat Kohli, Sharma is also one of the most decorated batsmen of our nation. But things were not always so rosy and exciting for the now 32-year-old athlete. Coming from humble beginnings, 'Shaana', as Yuvraj Singh likes to call him, was just a kid with a dream a couple of decades ago. His family did not have the silver to make life easier for the righty but the will to see him make it big internationally, could be found in abundance. © Rohit Sharma Hailing from Nagpur, Rohit's father, Gurunath Sharma, used to work as a caretaker of a transport firm storehouse in Mumbai and could only manage to afford a one-room apartment for the entire family to reside in. However, the worst was yet to come. After losing his job at the storehouse, his father found it extremely difficult to provide food and shelter to the little boy and decided to send him away to his grandparents and uncles' place in Borivali at the tender age of 10. Even though they were unable to see their child daily, they made it a point to visit him at least once every week. Appreciating his unshaken passion for the game of cricket, his parents decided to help him make a career in the sport and wanted to get him in a cricket academy by all means necessary. Pooling in Rs. 50 his parents, uncles and their friends collected enough funds to help him get through the academy in 1999. At the time, Sharma used to be a bowling all-rounder with expertise in off-spin but his coach, Dinesh Lad, at the academy advised him to focus more on his talents with the bat. He even managed to provide Rohit with a four-year scholarship at Swami Vivekananda International School, an institution ten-times better than where he used to go before. Switching schools also allowed the young and talented cricketer work harder to reach his goals. © Rohit Sharma As for someone who used to approach the crease as an 8th or 9th down to opening for Lad's team at the Inter-School tournament and scoring a total of 120 runs on his debut had to be special and the rest, as they say, is history. Having his fair share of dips in form, Sharma has had a rollercoaster career before he showed his ability to shine on the brightest of stages in the past few years and it seems as if the 32-year-oldie has built enough faith amongst the BCCI selection committee to make him a “sure thing” for the upcoming ICC World Cup. Sharma, who belongs to the A+ category of pay grade for Team India, was also blessed with a daughter earlier this year and this was probably the best present he could have asked for.
  9. As the twelfth season of the Indian Premier League approaches its conclusion, the need for patience and keeping calm continues to rise. Especially with Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Capitals fixing berths for themselves for the playoff round, only two spots remain and the competition amongst the rest of the franchises is nail-biting. Therefore, the pressure of the 'now-or-never' situation is getting to every member of the teams that have not qualified yet, which often erupts in an outburst when something does not go according to the liking of the athletes. Earlier, well-renowned and respected players of the Indian cricket team were looked down upon and fined for losing their cool over the flow of the game. On one hand, Indian skipper Virat Kohli was criticised for his 'extremely aggressive' reaction after dismissing Kings XI Punjab captain Ravichandran Ashwin last week, on the other hand, former captain of the Men in Blue and often referred to as 'Captain Cool', MS Dhoni was fined 50% of his match fees after coming onto the field from the dugout to argue with the umpires. Yesterday, it was time for the third captain of Team India and the leader of the MIPaltan, Rohit Sharma to join the infamous gang. After getting dismissed for cheap (12 runs off 9 deliveries) on an LBW appeal off English bowler, Harry Gurney, the 'Hitman' was visibly upset with the decision and vented his frustration on the stumps and broke them before leaving the crease. Breaching the conduct, Sharma was slapped with 15% of his match fees for the unprecedented actions and this is how his fans reacted: Rohit Sharma fuming at the umpire and buddy that wicket hitting thing is not expected from the clam batsman. When you're in a under pressure match and the poor umpiring takes the best batsman in your team. IPL umpiring are in a poor poor temper right now. — Subhadeep Paul (@paulbabaraps) April 28, 2019 But it's actually out umpire gave correct decision only Rohit needs to accept his wicket It's not like what happened other day One umpire giving out and other not — Nisha Cutee (@NishaCutee) April 28, 2019 Rohit Sharma trying to Mankad bowler. Truly next level skipper. pic.twitter.com/QjWh5w31LB — Rain Man (@ohgoditsmayhem) April 28, 2019 Rohit Sharma trying to Mankad bowler. Truly next level skipper. pic.twitter.com/QjWh5w31LB — Rain Man (@ohgoditsmayhem) April 28, 2019 Incidentally, the Indian opener's flare-up came in his 100th match as the captain of Mumbai Indians. Sharma is only the fourth cricketer to lead a franchise for 100 matches after MS Dhoni, Gautam Gambhir and Virat Kohli.
  10. It feels as if Rohit Sharma wanted to make up for the lack of entertainment the supporters of Mumbai Indians had to suffer, when the skipper missed out his first Indian Premier League game in 11 years against Ravichandran Ashwin's Kings XI Punjab due to a leg spasm on Wednesday. Nonetheless, the Indian opening batsman more than repaid his dues in today's game against Ajinkya Rahane's Rajasthan Royals during which he played a decent knock, making 47 runs off 32 deliveries, which included six fours and a solitary six, even though the Royals managed to win by four wickets and three spare deliveries. However, the greatest moment of the cricketer's innings came an over ahead of the delivery that dismissed him and ironically enough, the batsman's highlight had nothing to do with his bat. Walking down the pitch to try and hit a longer shot, Sharma was surprised by a full-toss by RR all-rounder K Gowtham going away from him to the left. Out of the crease by a good margin, the delivery would have definitely led to keeper Sanju Samson stumping him out but the Hitman's awareness of the situation and quick thinking made him kick the ball with his front foot, sending it away from the danger zone. His creative and quick reaction to avoid getting out led to Sharma's fans complimenting his footballing skills on Twitter: @mipaltan vs @rajasthanroyals: Deliberately padded by @ImRo45 , he kicks the ball away with his front leg pic.twitter.com/seDys6h1zi — Om Prasad Pattnayak (@OmPattnayak) April 13, 2019 Rohit be like "Messi who?" ð Picture credits: Hotstar#RohitSharma #MIvRR #QuintondeKock #MIvsRR #OneFamily #CricketMeriJaan pic.twitter.com/0dUIxp7ty2 — Rooter App (@RooterSports) April 13, 2019 That was a good kick by Rohit Sharma to avoid being stumped-out.

  11. Amidst the madness of the Indian Premier League (IPL) taking over a country of cricket-crazy people, news of the Indian squad for the 2019 ICC World Cup being announced about a week from today, has caught people's attention. According to a Times of India report, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and Indian skipper Virat Kohli have made plans to meet next Monday in Mumbai to sit and pick a roster that will represent the country in the tournament starting 30th May. Rohit Sharma believes that the final team will only be selected once the thoughts and ideas of Kohli and head coach Ravi Shastri have been taken into consideration by the Board. “I think we are pretty much settled. There are a few spots (undecided) which everyone knows about but again that depends on what the captain and the coach and the selectors think whether they want to go for the extra seamer or the extra spinner or extra middle order player or a reserve opener. “It also depends upon the conditions. The last time we were in England, the conditions were quite dry. I don't know how things will be. So if it is like that, then you take an extra spinner, as simple as that. If it's not then probably take the extra seamer,” the 'Hitman' said in Mumbai. The last portion from Sharma's quote is worth paying some heed to. It is well established that the fourth spot in the team is the most uncertain position. While currently in the hands of former allrounder Ambati Rayudu, it is highly probable that the Guntur-born will be asked to give it up, considering his below average performance against Australia in the ODI and T20I series last month (and let's not even talk about his IPL journey so far). Basing the argument on Sharma's take, if the conditions in England and Wales consists of heavy moisture, the number four spot could go a batting allrounder like Vijay Shankar who usually goes to the pitch as the fifth batsman and somebody like Hardik Pandya can be inserted in the fifth slot. Alternatively, Dinesh Karthik becomes an ideal candidate for number four adding to the powerful middle order batting line up with Pandya taking away Shankar's place from the roster. On the other hand, if the weather conditions continue to remain dry like the last time Men in Blue had visited England, bowling allrounder, Kedar Jadhav becomes one of the foremost picks for Kohli. Also, if the captain and the coach really want to try something that they haven't in the last two years, bringing back Ravichandran Ashwin does not appear to be a bad thought either. While positions for batsmen like Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan, and bowlers like Yuzvendra Chahal and Jasprit Bumrah can be considered to be a confirmed lock, the spots for allrounders are what will be a major part of the discussion between Kohli and the BCCI on Monday.
  12. Apparently Bollywood looked at the incredible Marvel Cinematic Universe and said, “I want some of that”. But, who needs superheroes when you have cops? Rohit Shetty is obviously THE guy who makes cop movies in Bollywood and has made three box office hits and 100 crore club movies with 'Singham', 'Singham Returns', and 'Simmba'. Now, he wants to tie all of the movies together in one Cinematic Universe and he has already started that process with Akshay Kumar's cameo in 'Simmba' as a way to introduce his character Veer Sooryavanshi for his own upcoming movie. Much like MCU's 'Captain Marvel', Rohit Shetty now also wants to have a female cop added to his 'Singham Cinematic Universe' after the release of 'Sooryanvanshi' starring Akshay Kumar. During a panel discussion at the FICCI Frames 2019, he said, “Soon we will be making it. We have a story in mind. We will do it definitely. We will take a year or so but we plan to do that to complete the universe.” He went on to explain his inspiration behind this cinematic universe, which was obviously Marvel. He also added that big-budget superhero movies are not really a possibility in the Hindi film industry at the moment. “Whatever happens in America, Hollywood, happens here ten years down the line. That's been the theory always. When I was watching the Avengers series I got an idea that why don't we create a universe. Obviously we don't have the kind of budget to make many super heroes movies year after year. Then I thought to make a cop universe from Simmba onwards.” He added, “I was a bit scared before the release of Simmba because this was happening for the first time in our country. I knew that youngsters and kids will know, because they have seen Avengers, but our mature audience hasn't seen that. I had doubts merging two worlds, but it worked big time.” Well, good for you, Mr Shetty! Let's just hope this doesn't really ruin MCU for us.image4
  13. Back in 1909, the Socialist Party of America designated 28th February as the first National Women's Day to honour the 1908 garment workers' strike in New York, where the women protested against working conditions. That day, marked a new chapter in the lives of women and, in 1975, when the United Nations began celebrating International Women's Day on 8th March, as it helped create a historic legacy of internationally-agreed strategies, standards and programmes to advance the status of women globally. Since then, the date 8th March has been a focal point in the movement for women's rights. And, this year's International Women's Day has proved to be no different. There has been a plethora of celebratory messages on social media platforms and, needless to mention the inspirational 'Google Doodle', all celebrating the achievements of women in different fields. Joining the bandwagon, India's limited-overs vice-captain - Rohit Sharma - also stressed on the need to celebrate the day with unmatched fervour and love, like any other festival. "#WomensDay has to be the most celebrated day in India!"ð From @ImRo45, @Jaspritbumrah93, @YUVSTRONG12 and every one of us at MI, a very #HappyWomensDay to all the special women out there ðð#HappyWomensDay2019 pic.twitter.com/FRIxz4TVZW — Mumbai Indians (@mipaltan) March 8, 2019 In a video shared by the Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Mumbai Indians on the social media, Rohit said: "Women's Day has to be the most celebrated day in India. The women who have played a part in my life have changed me completely. So, I think, it is important that we celebrate Women's Day as big as Diwali or any other festival that we celebrate". Our future is only as strong as our women. ð ON #womensday #Empowering #women #riseup #livepools #india @livepoolsindia #HappyWomensDay2019 #InternationalWomansDay pic.twitter.com/DUpYz4pMxh — yuvraj singh (@YUVSTRONG12) March 8, 2019 On the other hand, Mumbai's new signing Yuvraj Singh also gave a heartfelt message to the fans. "They are very integral part of our life. I think without them we would be nothing. In my perspective, in my books, I really hold them in high regard. Definitely my mother, who has nurtured me over the years and kept me very safe, to my sisters as well," said Yuvraj. Apart from Rohit and Yuvraj, India's death-overs specialist Jasprit Bumrah, too, shared his views on International Women's Day. “I always feel women are way above men. They always give me strength, they always give me confidence. So, I am very happy to have them in my life. During any situation, they never feel weak. They are always there in tough times, in happier times,” said Bumrah.
  14. For a team that recorded historic win in Tests before winning the ODI series Down Under, the Indian cricket team got a stark reminder of Australia's capabilities in the first Twenty20 International (T20I) following their three-wicket loss in Visakhapatnam. Barring KL Rahul, none of India's batting superstars stepped up as they stuttered to a mediocre total of 126 runs. The Indian bowlers tried to put up a brave fight despite few runs to play for, but in the end, Umesh Yadav's 14-run final over saw Australia to eke out a thrilling win and allowed them to take a 1-0 lead in the two-match T20I series. Going into the 2nd T20I, the Indian cricket team needs to put their best foot forward as they take on the visitors in the must-win clash at the M Chinnaswamy stadium in Bengaluru. But, while the hosts aim to bounce back in a bid to level the series, some of India's biggest superstars will also fancy notching up individual records. © BCCL The likes of Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni and Rohit Sharma are all in fray to etch their name in the history books with the potential individual records they can achieve during the 2nd T20I on 27th February. Rohit is on the verge of shattering the record for most sixes in the shortest format. The Mumbai batsman has slammed 102 sixes in 86 T20I innings so far. He is just two 'big hits' away from overtaking the likes of Chris Gayle and Martin Guptill who are currently tied at the top in the list of most sixes in T20Is. The 31-year-old is already leading the list of Indian batsmen with most sixes in T20Is. The nearest person to his tally of T20I sixes (in India) is Yuvraj Singh who boasts of 74 maximums in 51 innings in the shortest format. He is way ahead from the likes of Dhoni and Kohli who have 49 sixes in 84 innings and 48 'big hits' in 61 innings respectively. © BCCL Both, Kohli and Dhoni might be behind Rohit in the list of most T20I sixes, but, going into today's clash, the duo will be seen competing in a race of their own. The two cricketers are on the verge of bringing up a half-century of sixes in T20Is. And, with Dhoni needing just one and Kohli requiring two 'big hits', it'll be interesting to see who reaches the milestone first. While the individual milestones wouldn't really be on their minds, these three vital cricketers will be eager to produce an improved performance to help their side level the T20I series against Australia today.
  15. For a man who was busy honing his skills as a chess player before representing India at junior levels, Yuzvendra Chahal has undoubtedly come a long way to become one of the country's preferred spinners in limited-overs cricket. Making his debut in 2016, the leggie has managed to rise through the ranks in Indian cricket and forged a vital partnership with fellow spinner Kuldeep Yadav for his side. Continuing his fine form, the 23-year-old played a pivotal role in India's historic 4-1 win the five-match One-Day International (ODI) series in New Zealand. In the five games he played, Chahal bagged nine wickets - emerging as the joint leading wicket-taker alongside Mohammed Shami in the ODI series. But, apart from bamboozling the opposition batsmen, Chahal has carved his own niche with wit and pun. He has struck a chord with cricket fans through his very own 'Chahal TV' - a show that has now become a one-stop shop for fans to watch their favourite cricketers talk about the game. Instagram/@rohitsharma45 Though he has been seen poking fun at other cricketers on his chat show, Chahal was given a taste of his own medicine by none other than 'Hitman' Rohit Sharma. In one of his Instagram stories, the Indian opener shared a picture of the banner of Oriental Bank of Commerce that had Chahal on it. Taking a dig at his teammate, Rohit added the text 'GOAT' on the picture as a laugh riot ensued amongst cricket fans on Instagram. Meanwhile, both Rohit and Chahal will play a pivotal role in the upcoming T20I and ODI series against Australia at home. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has also announced a 15-member squad for the two T20Is which will be followed by five ODIs. Here's a look at India's squad: For T20I series: Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma (vc), KL Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant, Dinesh Karthik, MS Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Vijay Shankar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Umesh Yadav, Sidharth Kaul, Mayank Markande. For 1st and 2nd ODI: Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma (vc), Shikhar Dhawan, Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohamed Shami, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Vijay Shankar, Rishabh Pant, Siddharth Kaul, KL Rahul. For remaining 3 ODIs: Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma (vc), Shikhar Dhawan, Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Vijay Shankar, KL Rahul, Rishabh Pant.
  16. Unlike the first T20I match at Wellington, the Indian bowling side looked a lot more in control of the game as the important wickets of Tim Seifert and Colin Munro fell quickly. While the newbie went away on a caught-behind after hitting a four and a six, Munro was dismissed by a Rohit Sharma catch off Krunal Pandya. However, what is probably going to be the major point of discussion of the match is the questionable decision given out by the third Umpire, Shaun Haig when batsman Daryl Mitchell asked for a review on an LBW appeal. While the original decision given by the on-field umpire was against the Kiwi, upon review, it was seen that the ball edged the bat before touching Mitchell's pad. However, the Snickometer did not pick up any sound on the ball making a contact with the bat. Drama at Eden Park, Auckland! A lot of questions will be asked of the third umpire Shaun Haig, Hotspot and DRS. Daryl Mitchell must be gutted and confused at the same time. #NZvIND #INDvNZ #TeamIndia #DarylMitchell #KrunalPandya #DRS #Hotspot #T20I — Ameya Tilak (@ameyatilak) February 8, 2019 All these technologies and still can't figure out a clear inside edge. #indvnz #DarylMitchell — Ankit (@ankitchandram) February 8, 2019 This is what probably led to Haig calling a decision in favour of the on-field umpire's original call and gave Mitchell an 'out'. However, the fans, the Kiwi batsmen and even the Indian players seemed to be surprised with the third umpire's final say. Assembling at the centre of the Eden Park, everyone was asking another as to how exactly was the righty batter out. Daryl Mitchell could be seen literally begging in front of the Indian skipper Rohit Sharma and keeper MS Dhoni to advocate his case in front of the umpires and let him continue to bat. Although Sharma smiled at the hapless batsman, it was evidently clear that he wasn't going to help him as he was asked to leave the field. If a bowling team feels that the umpire's decision to send a batsman away was wrong, they have the right to call him back to the pitch. It is not just a rule on paper. It has been exercised by teams on a number of occasions with former skipper Dhoni himself calling back English batsman Ian Bell after getting him for a run-out on a legitimate confusion. So, in such a scenario, should Rohit Sharma have called Mitchell back?
  17. The Indian cricket team is a fraternity, a brotherhood based on hours of working out and practising together every day, celebrating the highs, and crying over the lows of the team together as family. But that won't stop the interim skipper Rohit Sharma from trying to pull his fellow teammate and friend Yuzvendra Chahal's leg as soon as he gets a chance to do so. And that's exactly what Sharma did after ODI series against New Zealand ended in favour of India with a final score, 4-1. A couple of days after the fifth match in Wellington ended, Chahal uploaded an image in a rare avatar of that of a batsman along with Kuldeep Yadav with an inspirational caption: “Think big, believe big, act big, and the results will be big..!!” View this post on Instagram Think big, believe big, act big, and the results will be big..!! ð®ð³ð®ð³ A post shared by Yuzvendra Chahal (@yuzi_chahal23) on Feb 4, 2019 at 9:35pm PST Chahal's fans were praising his performance during the 5-match ODI series against the Kiwis when suddenly, out of the blue, the Hitman, Rohit Sharma decided to troll the spinner. Commenting on the Instagram post, Sharma said: "How about ironing your uniform." The comment was bang-on as Chahal's wrinkled out uniform does look as if it could use some ironing. However, Chahal soon responded: “And my big brother trying to troll me hmm nice try bhaiya you improved little bit keep it up.” The duo were also seen sharing a laugh at Yuzi's new BCCI show called 'Chahal TV' for which Sharma also volunteered to be the cameraman once. During the show, Chahal comically asked the skipper if he could start batting at No. 3 given that Virat Kohli has been rested for the upcoming T20I series in New Zealand to which Sharma said: “You were our top scorer in the previous match that we lost. But I want you to be the top scorer in a match which we go on to win. I will speak to Ravi Bhai for your promotion to No.3 in the T20s.” WATCH: Hitman @ImRo45's guest appearance on Chahal TV ðð Why does Rohit want to give @yuzi_chahal a batting promotion? - by @RajalArora Find out here ððð https://t.co/3T5E4KDGEx pic.twitter.com/iI9IZmkoV1 — BCCI (@BCCI) February 3, 2019
  18. 'Simmba' enjoyed massive success and a magical run at the box office. Rohit Shetty knows exactly what to sell to his action fans and he does it quite well. The classic recipe which he began with Singham, played extremely well by Ajay Devgn, was carried forward as a sort of legacy by none other than Ranveer Singh himself, who like always, nailed the role of a cop in this one. View this post on Instagram RELEASING TOMORROW ! ð¦ðªð¾ #SIMMBA A post shared by Ranveer Singh (@ranveersingh) on Dec 26, 2018 at 10:10pm PST The movie crossed the 100-crore mark within a few days of its release and this gigantic success inspired director Rohit Shetty do so something thoughtful. At the recently concluded festival 'Umang Awards', Rohit Shetty pledged and donated 51 lakhs from the profit made by his movie. He presented the cheque with actors Ajay Devgn, Ranveer Singh and Akshay Kumar to the commissioner of Police. © Twitter 'Simmba' follows the story of a Marathi cop Sanghram Bhalerao who falls in the claws of corruption but eventually turns his good cop side on after an epiphany. Rohit is now all set to direct another action drama called 'Sooryavanshi' with none other than Khiladi Kumar himself, who made a cameo in 'Simmba' as well. Recently, the makers of Vicky Kaushal starrer 'Uri' pledged 1 crore towards the fund for Army widows on Army Day as well. It is good to see when Bollywood extends help and gives back to the country in a generous way.
  19. The Indian Cricket Team has been on a roll recently, overcoming every challenge that comes their way. Creating history during the 2018-19 Border-Gavaskar Trophy, by winning a Test series in Australia for the first time ever, followed by winning their first ever bilateral ODI series in Australia, the Men in Blue are looking stronger than ever. Even individually, a lot of Indian cricketers are breaking records which were considered to be unbreakable. Their efforts are being recognised by the world, as the International Cricket Council showers Virat Kohli and his men with some of the most prestigious awards and honours. For instance, the Indian skipper became the only player to bag top three ICC awards in a single year by winning the Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy for ICC Cricketer of the Year, the ICC Men's Test Player of the Year and the ICC ODI Player of the Year - for his performances in 2018. Other stars who bleed blue, including Rishabh Pant and Jasprit Bumrah were named as team members of ICC Test Team of the Year while Bumrah and Kuldeep Yadav also made it to the ICC ODI Team of the Year. The world is amazed by this young team of extremely talented players who seem to be fearless, indestructible and vulnerable to nothing. Believe it or not, there exists a complete army which looks after the health and welfare of Kohli's boys. As Team India marches forward towards greatness every single day, these backstage heroes get lost in the middle and do not receive the recognition that they deserve. It turns out that the Indian cricketers Yuzvendra Chahal and his sidekick Rohit Sharma (cameraman) felt the same way and decided to do something to bring these luminaries to the fore. In the fourth episode of the all-new Chahal TV, the two cricketers give us a sneak-peek into the highly confidential fitness centre of the Indian cricket team and talk to their performance team led by Head Physiotherapist, Patrick Farhart along with the sports massage therapists Arun Kanade and Rajeev Kumar. “People recognise us, the cricketers, but these are the people who put in a lot of effort to help us perform better,” says Chahal in his tribute to the dark horses.
  20. In the ever-changing age of the digital world, social media, from being a simple platform that initially came to fore with the promise of helping people to keep in touch and keep up with one another, has, now, gone on to become 'the thing' for people. No relationship is considered real unless it's posted on the likes of Facebook and Instagram. Happiness is now measured by the number of vacation photos you share on your social media profile. There is so much and, still, much more. Then, there are those social media trends that get the users spell-bound, making it almost imperative for others to participate while inflicting FOMO (another irritating new-age lingo) if they don't. Staying true to its nature, social media has a new trend for everyone to follow - '10 Year Challenge'. A harmless fad, right? Or, is it (that's questionable). (Plus,minus)- 10 Year Challenge ðð @rogerfederer #10yearchallenge pic.twitter.com/2lAvyKMNj6 — Belinda Bencic (@BelindaBencic) January 17, 2019 The rules are pretty simple: you simply upload two photographs of yourself - usually side by side - which were taken at least ten years apart. What's the overall message here, you'd ask? It's again simple: self-love and showing the world how you've 'glowed up' (in other words, showing how you haven't aged a day). The '10 Year Challenge' is already a rage on the social media platforms. Facebook, Instagram and Twitter; you name it. The collage of photos would have thronged your feed on social media. From cricketers to footballers and politicians to actors, everyone has been happily riding the bandwagon. And, why not, in the age where information is second-handed (read digital) and real life is secondary, social media trends is the oxygen you cannot do without. But, amid all the crazy collages of people we've seen, there came one from Rohit Sharma that stands apart from the rest. The only #10YearChallenge we should be worried about pic.twitter.com/Tph0EZUbsR — Rohit Sharma (@ImRo45) January 17, 2019 Using the '10 Year Challenge' fad as an opportunity, the Indian opener highlighted one of the long-standing problems that might soon spell doom for the mankind. Taking to Twitter, the Mumbai batsman shared a collage of photos of the marine life where the one from 2009 was colourful and lively, while the one from 2019 was dull and dusty. He captioned the post with a valid point: "The only #10YearChallenge we should be worried about". In the year, where we all were going gaga about the stock image of an egg beating Kylie Jenner's record of the most-liked photo on Instagram, before Netflix's 'Bird Box' had people running around blindfolded, Rohit has set a much-needed precedent for celebrities and fans alike, showing that such social media trends can actually be used responsibly, and for something good. And, while there are already rife allegations that the collages of the photos that we all have been happily sharing on the social media could very well be used as data to test the facial recognition algorithms, people must proceed with due diligence. After all, humans are the connective link between physical and digital worlds. It's human interactions that make the 'Internet of Things' interesting. And, sadly, our data is the fuel that makes businesses smarter and more profitable.
  21. If we thought 'Simmba' was the biggest hit of just Ranveer's career, we couldn't have been more wrong! Ranveer Singh starrer 'Simmba' has now crossed the box earnings of Rohit Shetty's 'Chennai Express' to take its top spot as the “highest grosser” for the director! © Pinterest According to the latest tweet by trade analyst Taran Adarsh, 'Simmba' has so far earned Rs. 227.71 crore while 'Chennai Express' had earned Rs. 227.13 crore.

Not only that, but 'Simmba' also became Rohit Shetty's eighth consecutive 100-crore movie at the box office. © Red chillies Entertainment 2013 release 'Chennai Express' starring Deepika Padukone and Shah Rukh Khan was a super hit at the box office and was declared as a complete package when it came to thrilling entertainment. In 'Simmba', Ranveer Singh is seen essaying the role of a corrupt policeman called Sangram Bhalerao who undergoes a complete transformation after a life-changing incident. The film stars Sara Ali Khan as Ranveer's love interest Shagun in the film, while Sonu Sood, Ashutosh Rana, Siddhartha Jadhav also play pivotal roles in the movie.
  22. For a team that ended 2018 with a historic Test series win, Virat Kohli-led India were shot to the ground by a rejuvenated Australian brigade in the first One-Day International (ODI) at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG). In what was arguably an early wake up call, the visitors paid dearly for their batting flaws which eventually led to their 34-run loss. It was surely not the kind of start the Indian cricket team or their fans would have wanted in the new year. But, while the visiting team stuttered in the first ODI, one man, yet again, proved why he is considered one of the most feared openers in the world. BCCL It was business as usual for Rohit Sharma who notched up his first hundred after the birth of his baby girl Samaira. Carrying the baton for his side and keeping them alive in the run-chase, the right-hander smashed a brilliant 133-run knock which was decorated with six sixes and 10 boundaries. While the Mumbai batsman couldn't help India secure a win, his innings will surely linger in the memory of cricket fans for some time. For someone who has a reputation of notching up big individual scores, it wasn't really surprising to see Rohit's batting masterclass in Sydney that left former cricketers and pundits in awe. But, as successful as he is with the willow, Rohit, sadly, isn't even close to being a good dancer. Hitman learning the floss dance be like ðð#TeamIndia pic.twitter.com/37lGysldJC — BCCI (@BCCI) 13 January 2019 After setting the SCG on fire with the bat, the 'Hitman' was seen trying his hand at floss dance. In a video shared by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Twitter, the Mumbai Indians skipper was seen learning floss dance from a young girl without much success. After seemingly trying to learn the moves, Rohit was seen giving up on his effort midway as Kedar Jadhav, who missed the first ODI, stepped up to the task. Trailing 0-1 in the three-match series, the Indian cricket team, now, has little margin for error as they gear up to halt Australia's onslaught in the second ODI at the Adelaide Oval on 15th January.
  23. Rohit Shetty is a name that our brain kind of automatically associates to for overarching elements that are synonymous to the director and films. This man is the one ruling master of full-power action sequences in Bollywood and exceptional dialogues that almost always go viral much before the movies hit the screens, dance sequences that instantly rub-off on youngsters and a different side of Goa that Shetty makes more appetizing with every new movie! © Eros International He uses the (almost) same props across his movies, yet there is something new about his latest releases that catches on to the pulse of its young audience, who love eating out of his hands when it comes to a typical Rohit Shetty movie. We want to call them mindless entertainment, something that a bunch of college friends can enjoy together, yet somehow every release tells you that there is more to Shetty's films than mere “mindlessness”. They are fun, entertaining AF and promise you a good time while we take every bait thrown our way most graciously. But most importantly Shetty can tell stories, and good stories at that. Behind those entertainment-ridden antics of his characters, he delivers his messages and stories effortlessly. © Reliance Entertainment His methods seem to be doing wonders for him because Shetty just became the first Bollywood director with eight back-to-back 100-crore films at the box office, with 'Simmba' being the latest glorious feather on his kickass hat! 'Simmba' has made over 124-crore at the box office within 5 days of it release. © Red chillies Entertainment Starting with 'Golmaal 3' (2010), 'Singham' (2011), 'Bol Bachchan' (2012), followed with 'Chennai Express' (2013), 'Singham Returns' (2014), 'Dilwale' (2015), 'Golmaal Again' (2016) and now 'Simmba' (2018), these 8 movies have turned Shetty into the king of the 100-crore club! © Dharma Productions Ranveer Singh couldn't have been more proud of this moment since 'Simmba' also happens to be his biggest solo hit now, and he has effectively expressed himself through a “roaring” Instagram post.

  24. Super-Dad Rohit Sharma was on a flight back home as soon as the news of his wife Ritika Sajdeh being blessed with a baby daughter reached his ears. The news broke out within hours of Team India registering the second win of the four-match series in Melbourne on Sunday. The batsman seemed overjoyed about becoming a father in an interview with retired Australian cricketer, Michael Clarke, before the 3rd Test. "I cannot wait to be a father; it is going to be a game-changing moment in our lives,” Sharma told Clarke. “I am eagerly awaiting the moment of becoming a father. It will be a moment to change our life.” https://t.co/EsLEjyDuI0 We are so happy for you guys @ImRo45 @ritssajdeh â¤ï¸ — Rohit Sharma FanClub (@ImRo45_FC) December 20, 2018 Sharma played a crucial role in the first innings of the 3rd Test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground as he scored 63 runs off 114 balls and remained unbeaten till the end. The Men in Blue look to seal their series victory by winning the 4th Test starting 3rd January 2019, however, looks like they will not have the talents of the middle-order batsman to back them up in Sydney. The team is looking at Hardik Pandya, who recently recovered from a severe lower-back injury he suffered in September this year, as a suitable replacement for Sharma. “It would've been great to have him (Rohit) around,” a source told The Times of India. “Tactically, he brings so much to the side and then his batting provides the right kind of balance to the side. But what awaits him is far bigger and more important.” Rohit Sharma will be back in Australia after spending a week with the family to join the ODI squad for a three-match series starting 12th January 2019.
  25. At the time when India's schedule for their Australian tour was announced, everyone in the cricket fraternity knew that it was going to a great contest. And, why not? India were going to lock horns with the Aussies in three T20Is, as many ODIs and four Test matches. While the limited-overs series offered some slam-bang action, all eyes were undoubtedly glued to the much-anticipated duels in Tests. And, after two Tests and with the third one currently in progress, the fact that India and Australia are tied 1-1 goes on show how evenly this series is poised. We've already witnessed batting geniuses of Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli who are currently leading the list of top run-getters in the series and the spin wizardry of Nathan Lyon who is miles ahead in the race of leading wicket-takers. But, apart from some exciting cricket on offer, the four-match Test series has also witnessed some of the most hilarious quips from both the sides. If Rishabh Pant's quirky comments from behind the stumps left everyone in splits, Tim Paine's recent remarks from the same position has once again brought a smile on the faces of cricket fans across the globe. © AP Though Australian cricketers have been infamous for using verbal volleys to unsettle the opposition batsmen, the ongoing series has witnessed an altogether different approach from the home side. Struck with the ball-tampering scandal recently, while the Aussies seem to have minimised their aggression, they have traded explosive comments for quirky jibes - something that reflected in Paine's latest comments. During the second day's play at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), Paine was caught on the stump-mic trying to sledge Rohit Sharma. While the Indian batsman was taking guard for the next delivery, the Australian skipper was heard telling his mate at short-leg that it was 'a toss-up between Rajasthan Royals and Mumbai Indians at this time'. "If Rohit hits a six here I'm changing to Mumbai" ð#AUSvIND pic.twitter.com/JFdHsAl84b — cricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) December 27, 2018 But, it was the comment which followed later, that left everyone in splits. "He has this nice easy swing of the bat. We see him do it all the time for MI. If Rohit hits a six here, I'm changing to Mumbai Indians," Paine was heard saying on the stump-mic before the fielders around him burst into laughter.

Did Finchie (Aaron Finch) get you out. To be honest, the hardest two overs I played in domestic cricket last season were from him." While we aren't sure if Paine's remarks unsettled Rohit or not, but the Australian captain got no help from his teammate Peter Siddle who came on as a substitute fielder only to drop the Mumbai batsman on 16 at short fine leg in the 147th over. On the other hand, the cricket fans couldn't stop themselves from expressing their views on Paine's hilarious remarks.
