  3. One-night stands are probably one of the best things about being young and single. Groovy music, glittery lights, free-flowing alcohol and the intoxicating touch of another body. While you can throw caution to the wind and seize the day when going for it, there are certain rules that one must follow to make the most out of their night. If you're up all night to get lucky, you might as well make it worthwhile. 1. Be Clear About Your Intentions © Thinkstock/Getty Images Whether you met your date on a dating app or through a common friend, it's a given that you put your cards on the table. Be honest about your intentions and what you want from the date and the one-night stand (if you eventually get lucky). If you are looking for a no-strings-attached one-night stand, be clear about it. Tell her when there's time, not when you are already midway through foreplay. 2. Make Sure You Have Condoms © Thinkstock/Getty Images A gentleman always carries condoms in his pocket. If you are looking forward to a fun night, carry condoms with you. There's no bigger bummer than not having condoms when you are about to get down and dirty. If you don't have them, don't go ahead and risk (literally) screwing your life. From sexually transmitted infections to unwanted pregnancies, you don't want one careless mistake to ruin your peace of mind (and possibly your life) later. Also, ask your date when they got tested for STIs last, and come clean if you didn't. While it may sound like a bummer discussing the medical details of your sexual health, it's a highly underrated protocol of hooking up. It's as basic as carrying a condom in your wallet. Better be safe than sorry. 3. Wash Up © Thinkstock/Getty Images Groom yourself a bit in preparation for the lucky night. Even if you are not sure how things will turn out, being prepared never hurts. Trim yourself down to a comfortable length down there. No need to wax or shave off everything of course – you don't want to look too prepared. Before diving into action, excuse yourself and wash up down there. Ideally, it's best to take a bath before you go on that date but when you are sweating it out on the dance floor, your sweaty balls will not do much to get you some sweet loving later in the night. If possible, wash yourself with a nice-smelling gel. What flavoured condoms can't do for you, your scented shower gel will. 4. Don't Drink Too Much © Thinkstock/Getty Images You don't want to pass out before the fun even starts. Don't drink so much that you have to throw up in the street (or even worse, your date's shoes), and have your friends escort you to your home. While alcohol makes you more confident and relaxed, too much of it can affect your performance and you may not be able to enjoy. 5. No Gassy Foods Please © Thinkstock/Getty Images Avoid foods that make you bloated. Skip the garlic bread and the onion; you don't want to turn her off with your bad breath the very first time you kiss her. It's a good idea to avoid gulping pints of beer; you don't want to burp in her mouth, or worse fart during ***. Keep the dinner light and non-greasy. Save the sandwich for breakfast. 6. Don't Pry Too Much Into Personal Details © Thinkstock/Getty Images It's all right to not know everything about your date. You don't have to get into the details of their family tree. There are plenty of things to talk about on a date – it's okay to avoid asking personal details like where they work, their pan card number or their surname. Don't send them a friend request on Facebook, Snapchat or Instagram. 7. Consent Is Important © Thinkstock/Getty Images Yes, it's a one-night stand you both signed for. Yes, your alcohol is in place. Your bedroom lighting is in place and the foreplay is great. But if at any point of time, one of the partners gets uncomfortable and is unwilling to go ahead with the ***, you have to respect their decision. Just because they have come with you to your house, doesn't mean they can't refuse at any point of time. *** has to be mutual till the very end. 8. Don't Linger Around Afterwards © Thinkstock/Getty Images Ideally, you leave right after the ***. But since that's not always practically possible, especially in a country like India where you risk a lot more than just a walk of shame, it's okay to stay the night and leave in the morning. There's a simple rule – you get up early, get dressed and walk out the door. Don't linger around for breakfast, or stroll around their house commenting on the family pictures on their walls. If it's your house, you offer them something to drink and help them call a cab, since it's an unfamiliar address for them. 9. Morning *** Is Not Complimentary With A One-Night Stand © Thinkstock/Getty Images Waking up next to someone you barely know can be awkward. Your alcohol has worn off, so has your orgasm, and the bright morning light doesn't really help in making things seem rosier. Add to it morning breath after litres of alcohol in your system, and you are set for a disastrous morning. Save yourself by getting up early, sneaking to the bathroom and rinsing your mouth. While it's true that early morning *** is the best kind of ***, not everyone is up for it. It can get a little tricky in a one-night stand, which ideally ends with the night. Check if your date is up for it – it's not necessary that they'll be as excited about it as they were the night before, now that everyone's sober. 10. Don't Get Clingy After The One-Night Stand © Thinkstock/Getty Images Getting clingy after a one-night stand is like drunk dialling your ex in the middle of the night after a bad break-up. If you agreed this was going to be a one-time romp in the hay, you can't call them in the middle of the night saying you miss them. It's naïve to assume that a one-night stand has earned you another with the person. Carpe diem!
  4. India bowled South Africa out for 118 in 32.2 overs in the 1st innings of the 2nd One Day International of their ongoing six match series in South Africa. This left them 119 to win. India’s run chase began immediately after a 10 minute interval since South Africa’s innings ended with more than 30 minutes left for the scheduled break. When it was time for the scheduled break, 15 overs of India’s innings had been completed and India were 26 runs away from their target. The Umpires decided to exercise rule 11.4.4 of the 2017 standard ODI playing conditions, and extended play for a maximum of 15 minutes (or a minimum of 4 overs). This rule is as follows: “The umpires may decide to play 15 minutes (a minimum of four overs) extra time at the scheduled interval if requested by either captain if, in the umpires’ opinion, it would bring about a definite result in that session. If the umpires do not believe a result can be achieved no extra time shall be allowed. If it is decided to play such extra time, the whole period shall be played out even though the possibility of finishing the match may have disappeared before the full period has expired.” It took more than 15 minutes to complete the four overs. There is no provision in the rules to start a new over if the 15 extra minutes have already been played. India were 2 runs short of their target after four overs. The umpires duly took the players off for the scheduled break. This decision was universally condemned. It is worth examining the substance of this condemnation because this is an instance in which the umpires were condemned for following the rules correctly and precisely. In other words, those who condemned the umpires were completely wrong, and the umpires were completely right. Essentially, the argument was that even though they followed the rules, the umpires were wrong because their decision defied “common sense”. Further, it was suggested that the rules were archaic, the decision was ridiculous and the situation was a farce. As the players walked away for the break, observers (commentators on television, various journalists on twitter) were darkly predicting that there would be nobody left at the ground when the players returned from their break. On a video show for ESPNCricinfo the former India wicket-keeper Deep Dasgupta even invented a provision in the rules to the effect that if both captains agree, play can continue! Such a provision does not exist in the rules. He was not alone. Dozens of ex-players and journalists were unanimous about how the ridiculousness of the decision and awfulness of the situation. Who exactly was being inconvenienced by the umpires’ decision? The television broadcasters, who got to run innings break programming and the commercials which go with it? The press in the press box, who were served lunch as per the usual custom by the hosts at the ground, and got an extra talking point which they otherwise might have been short of in a one-sided game? The spectators who had come prepared for a leisurely day at the cricket, expecting a 100 overs game which would last until evening? The vendors at the ground who got to serve customers over lunch? Who exactly was inconvenienced by the umpires decision? The decision was perfectly correct according to the rules, and apart from the fact that the game was run correctly, everybody associated with the game did better thanks to the decision compared to what they might have done had the umpires ignored the rules and played extra overs. The one testable prediction in all the outrage, that nobody would be around at the end of the game, turned out to be wrong. As ESPNCricinfo’s live ball-by-ball commentator reported, “My colleague Sid Monga tells me there is still a decent crowd hanging around at the stadium” Rarely has there been such an unanimously held view which was based on no observable external reality. The conventional wisdom in this case was absolutely certain that the decision was “farcical”, “ridiculous”, “stupid”, “unbelievable”. The basis of this certitude is this notion of “common sense”. It was the common sense decision to play the extra over(s) even though the rules did not permit this. It is worth examining the notion of common sense. Laws govern and bring order to our lives. But life would still exist even if there were no laws (or some completely different set of laws). It would not exist in the way it exists today, but it would still exist. Games are different from life. Games are not governed by laws, they are constituted by them. Without the rules of a game, there is no game. Life precedes laws, while laws precede games. Games are completely defined, closed systems. Any move by a participant in a game (be it cricket or chess or football) can be identified unambiguously as being either a legal move (i.e. something permitted in the game) or an illegal move (i.e. something not permitted in the game). The goal of the game is predefined. This means that conditions which have to met so that the goal can be said to have been achieved, are known in advance. Games begin and end. This distinction between games and general life is important because it places a strict limit on the applicability of things which might be applicable to general laws to the laws of games. There is no concept of “natural justice” in a game. Games are structured as a competition - someone is supposed to lose by design. The set of rules which constitute (again, not govern, but constitute) a game is arbitrary. This set does not exist for any reason, other than the fact that it constitutes the game. The laws of games are not supposed to have silences. Whenever events occur whose legal status is truly disputable, the laws of games are amended to end such disputes (for example, the switch hit, or Ajay Jadeja’s exploitation of a loophole in the short run rule when batting with a tailender). Common sense is defined in the Cambridge dictionary as “the basic level of practical knowledge and judgment that we all need to help us live in a reasonable and safe way.” It consists of “common sense consists of knowledge, judgement, and taste which is more or less universal and which is held more or less without reflection or argument.” Webster’s dictionary defines it as “sound and prudent judgment based on a simple perception of the situation or facts.” This is distinct from the idea of conventional wisdom which refers to ideas or explanations which are considered to be true. In games, there is no underlying order which the rules attempt to encode. The idea of the merit or goodness of a rule exists only in the sense that the rule might contradict or be redundant in relation to some already existing rule. In life, the idea of "common sense" is necessary precisely because it refers to some underlying order which can be adopted even without explicitly written instruction or rules. There is no basis for such common agreement about a game. Cricket does not occur in nature. Games themselves are not social or natural phenomena which the rules attempt to explain, they are completely formal entities which rules construct. The common sense view is that the umpires should have relaxed the rules and allowed the extra over to be played. According to those who hold this to be the common sense view, the umpires decision was not just ridiculous adherence to archaic laws which should have been avoided, this was obviously so. Those who hold this common sense view misunderstand the basic idea of what a game is. But even if one were to see the mistaken terms adopted by the adherents of this common sense view, they are wrong. Had the umpires relaxed the rules, they would have explicitly favored India, even if both captains agreed to continue to the game (lets ignore the fact that agreement between captains is irrelevant in the situation at hand). This is something umpires are not supposed to do. The veteran cricket statistician Mohandas Menon observed that “[w]ith only 19 overs bowled, South Africa can still save this ODI match, if it now rains the whole day!” It is not clear if Mr. Menon intended this observation to be in support of the common sense view. But it proves the exact opposite. Objectively, had the umpires ignored the rules and extended play beyond what is permitted in the rules, they would have eliminated this possibility. The remoteness of this possibility is irrelevant. The whole point of having an umpire - an entity which is (a) disinterested in the outcome of a contest, and (b) expert in the rules governing the contest - is to avoid favoring one team or another in any way. An essential point of a game is that while the game is in progress, the contest is technically always on. The fact that one side may be significantly closer to a win compared to the other side, even if this is overwhelmingly the case, is irrelevant. To say that the umpires should have relaxed the rules and allowed the extra over(s) necessary for India to score the 2 runs is identical to saying that they should have stopped after 15 overs (or 16 or 17 or 14), since it was it was clear (or common sense) that India were going to win. Yet, nobody would think that this would be an acceptable common sense decision, would they? Now, one could argue that the ICC should revise the rules and give the umpires some extra discretion. Instead of specifying a maximum of 15 minutes and a minimum of 4 overs, the rule could leave this entirely up to the umpires. But we all know how well observers react to umpires exercising discretion. The reason why the ICC has made the rules so explicit is to protect umpires from being accused of bias or “inconsistent application of rules” when they exercise any discretion which the rules might grant them. The conventional wisdom about the common sense view of the umpire’s decision is wrong. The rules are not archaic. They came into force on September 28, 2017. The rules were applied correctly. There was no reason, none at all, to think that the situational was farcical, except that lots of people who either did not know the rules or did not grasp the implication of what they were suggesting created an echo chamber which said that the situation was farcical. Mockery is wonderful when it is underpinned by some significant truth. In this case, the only truth it revealed was not about the game, but about its pundits. The umpires, as they usually do, got it exactly right.
