ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsBeing the better half of a celebrity might have a lot of perks and incentives, but, from what we've seen in the past, it's definitely not easy. Association with a popular figure attracts constant media scrutiny and it's needless to say that the privacy goes out of the window. Similarly, dating a sportsperson or being married to one has its own disadvantages. The prime example is Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli. The duo might be regarded as the 'power couple' of India, but every time Kohli fails on the field or Anushka's movie flops, the couple becomes the obvious target for social media trolls. And, it doesn't end there. Placed under the scanner, their every move is watched, judged and, thereon, scrutinised heavily. © Instagram/@stuartbinny84 Something similar came to the fore recently when a cricket fan targeted Mayanti Langer while using her hubby Stuart's on-field performance. Arguably one of the most prominent sports presenters in the country, Mayanti, apart from being married to Indian cricketer Stuart, has carved a niche of her own. But, every time her husband does something (whether good or bad), she becomes the obvious target for the social media trolls. The Indian Premier League (IPL) clash between Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) saw Stuart, who was batting for the first time this season, smashing three towering sixes and two fours during his unbeaten knock of 33 runs. After today's inning of #stuartBinny @MayantiLanger_B first time change her DP from solo to with hubby ðð#KXIPvRR #IPL2019 #Iplt20 pic.twitter.com/k0DPsbz00j — Navneet Kumar (@navneet35093) April 16, 2019 While his blazing innings probably bolstered his chances of getting more games, it eventually wasn't enough from averting a 12-run defeat for Rajasthan at the PCA stadium in Mohali. Following Punjab's win, a cricket fan tried to troll Mayanti despite her husband's fairly decent performance by pointing out: "After today's inning of #stuartBinny @MayantiLanger_B first time change her DP from solo to with hubby". Really Navneet? Considering you don't have my number you don't know what the picture actually is ð¤ but thanks a ton for digging out this one, it's a super pic ðð¼ https://t.co/kgmgm6qBhT — Mayanti Langer Binny (@MayantiLanger_B) April 16, 2019 Though many try to ignore such trolls in a bid to garner unwanted attention, Mayanti took this cricket fan to the task before giving a befitting reply. "Really Navneet? Considering you don't have my number you don't know what the picture actually is but thanks a ton for digging out this one, it's a super pic," she tweeted. Sorry that you seemed to have missed #KXIPvRR on @StarSportsIndia you can join us on #MarutiSuzukiCricketLive on SS 1/2/Hindi/HD and of course @hotstartweets Cheers ðð¼ https://t.co/Jv59z4xOXZ — Mayanti Langer Binny (@MayantiLanger_B) April 16, 2019 Another fan tried to pull off something similar before asking: "@MayantiLanger_B where is Stuart? Not on the horizon anyway?". And, once again, Mayanti prevailed like a total boss, "Sorry that you seemed to have missed #KXIPvRR on @StarSportsIndia you can join us on #MarutiSuzukiCricketLive on SS 1/2/Hindi/HD and of course @hotstartweets Cheers," she tweeted. On the other hand, a narrow win for Punjab has now propelled them to the fourth spot with 10 points to their name, while Rajasthan, owing to their sixth defeat this season, find themselves languishing at the seventh spot with just four points for their showing.
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsEver since, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced the schedule for the first phase of the twelfth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), the excitement amongst cricket fans and buzz on the social media is peaking at an all-time high. The opening clash between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) has already garnered a lot of attention as it pits two of the biggest cricketers MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli against each other. If the fans have been busy placing bets on their favourite teams, the franchises, themselves, aren't shying away from taking a dig at each other. As soon as the BCCI announced the schedule for the upcoming season, Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) tried to troll Rajasthan Royals (RR) with a cheeky tweet ahead of their clash on 25th March in Jaipur. Feeling Pink aren't we, @rajasthanroyals? Let's hope an encounter with us in our #IPL2019 opener doesn't leave you red-faced ð¤#LivePunjabiPlayPunjabi #VIVOIPL #IPL2019SCHEDULE pic.twitter.com/iHnyFrUnQ5 — Kings XI Punjab (@lionsdenkxip) February 19, 2019 Taking to Twitter, Punjab wrote: "Feeling Pink aren't we, @rajasthanroyals? Let's hope an encounter with us in our #IPL2019 opener doesn't leave you red-faced". While the tweet garnered mixed reactions from the fans, it also evoked a befitting response from Rajasthan. Hey @lionsdenkxip, we'll save you the blushes, considering you've never won in Jaipur. History is quite comforting, isn't it? ð¤ #HallaBol https://t.co/8ChU37ItDe — Rajasthan Royals (@rajasthanroyals) February 19, 2019 Stressing on Punjab's dismal form in Jaipur, Rajasthan reminded their rivals: "Hey @lionsdenkxip, we'll save you the blushes, considering you've never won in Jaipur. History is quite comforting, isn't it?". Jokes apart, both Rajasthan and Punjab have struggled to live up to the expectations in the past few years. While Punjab are yet to lift the IPL trophy, Rajasthan have not been their usual best when Shane Warne guided them to the title in 2008. Last season, too, was no different for these two sides. While the Rajasthan-based franchise finished fourth with 14 points, Punjab had to contend with a sixth-place finish owing to 12 points in 14 games last season. However, given their smart buys at the auctions last December, the two sides will be eager to put their best foot forward with an improved showing this season.
