  1. 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 . In their @royalchallengersbangalore reunion, watch what happens when @virat.kohli and @dalesteyn discover a 9 year old treasure! #RCBvCSK . Full video ð¹ on our IG story or click the link in the bio. 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.
  2. 'Say no to spoilers' – it's not a hard concept to understand. But, some people have a hard time grasping this and they don't realize how much the spoilers of a movie or a TV show can affect someone, especially if they have been waiting for a really long time to watch it. The entire spoiler debate going on right now is obviously because of 'Avengers: Endgame' - only 9 days to go! - and I still can't believe there are some sadistic people who would spoil things for others. There are so many loyal fans and followers of the Marvel Cinematic Universe who want to and who deserve to watch the biggest Marvel movie yet without any interference. But, it can get so out of hand that the Russo Brothers had to come out and release another PSA just to plead with people. #DontSpoilTheEndgame pic.twitter.com/YZhbrwcijJ — Russo Brothers (@Russo_Brothers) April 16, 2019 Yes, I hate the giant purple grape and his stupid narrow way of thinking, but for once we should listen to him when he demands our silence. Be a good person, don't make fans have meltdowns and keep the spoilers to yourself. Be like Cap. But not us #WhateveritTakes #DontSpoilTheEndgame pic.twitter.com/KDKxFxl2dM — Danna Sofía (@DSofi427) April 16, 2019 Be like Dr Strange. pic.twitter.com/gPfbjD4xw9 — Tommy (@TommyWitney) April 16, 2019 Good joke. when someone spoils endgame pic.twitter.com/0rzbhGQ0D5 — dustin (@asvpxdusty) April 16, 2019 This is probably why Spiderman was killed off in 'Infinity War'. :) pic.twitter.com/i7b1w3aIt2 — Iván Gutiérrez (@ivandecat05) April 16, 2019 While this letter is good, nothing can beat last year's PSA about spoilers for 'Avengers: Infinity War'. I'm kind of sad we don't have Tom Holland with tape on his mouth this time. © Marvel
  3. After making people wait for almost two years, the final season of 'Game Of Thrones' is finally here and looks like no one is as excited about the show as us. But, it's the Indian parents who are the happiest today. Why? Because what they or the alarm clocks couldn't do for years, the makers of 'GOT' did it in a single day - make people wake up at 5 AM. © HBO Until last week, people were looking for ways to deal with Monday blues and finding excuses to sleep a few more minutes. But, today things have changed and the only blue people are concerned about are the Night King's eyes. © HBO Turns out Indians are super excited to watch the first episode of season 8, but for free. So, instead of logging into Hotstar premium, they were busy looking for free alternatives. For that most people woke up around 5 AM to try downloading the episode for free from Torrent. © Quartz According to a report in Quartz, between 5 AM and 9 AM, Google Trends showed that 'Torrent file' was a more popular keyword than 'Hotstar' in India. © Quartz In fact, torrent sites like 'DIRECTV' and its misspelling 'direct tv' were among the rising trends. Honestly, the fact that people are looking for free alternatives to watch the episode does not surprise me as much as the fact that they woke up at 5 AM to do it. I mean, people across the country were setting alarm for 5 AM and 6:30 AM, not to catch an early morning flight or study for exams, but to watch the first episode of 'Game Of Thrones' season 8. And not just any day, a Monday. If you think I am exaggerating and the insane craze is a big lie, check out the tweets here where people are posting screenshots of alarms. The alarm is set #ForTheThrone #GameofThrones @GameOfThrones @HotstarPremium pic.twitter.com/GFE4Aegblp — Pavan Advani (@pavankoomar) April 14, 2019 Alarm set!!

  5. There are more than 8,000 sports in the world that keep people engaged while they are not sitting in a rather uncomfortable office chair, hurting their eyes in front of a screen full of pixels. To quote the robot from the second season of Love, Death + Robots, “bouncing things were close to maxing out their (humans) cognitive range”. While you would not be too familiar with sports like 360ball, Apo-Apo and Basketrun, there are some games that are holding the reign of being the most followed sports all around the world. Here's a list of top five such sports: 5. Volleyball - 900 Million Fans #FlashbackFriday to the 2018 #VNL, when Argentina's ð¦ð· Santiago Danani @santidanani said NO! to Poland's ðµð± Aleksander Sliwka! ð Keep up with the 2019 VNL here: https://t.co/4a7AQS4gWP #VNL #BePartofTheGame pic.twitter.com/Ok0KcOzrc6 — Volleyball World (@FIVBVolleyball) April 5, 2019 Hailing from the lands of Western Europe and the United States, the game of volleyball has gathered massive fan following in the past couple of decades. With more than 900 million fans, the game involves characteristics of sports like basketball and tennis. With the growing popularity of the game in India, new leagues such as 'Pro Volleyball League' are making their way into the Indian market with hopes of massive viewership in the next few years. 4. Tennis - 1 Billion Fans Sad we couldn't face off in another epic matchup, but hopefully we have a few more to come. Get better soon Rafa. #Fedal pic.twitter.com/56wGwWjEGt — Roger Federer (@rogerfederer) March 16, 2019 Lawn tennis or tennis is truly a global sport. With individual talents like Roger Federer, Novak Djokowic, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray, all coming from different countries and making it big on an international level, the game's popularity had to grow exponentially all over the globe. Thanks to athletes like Leander Paes, Mahesh Bhupati and Sania Mirza, the game was able to create a significant space for itself in the hearts of the sports enthusiasts of the nation. 3. Field Hockey - 2 Billion Fans UNBELIEVABLE! ð±ð± It's raining goals in Kuala Lumpur! Nikki joins the party with a fine flick in the 55th minute of the match! MAS 0-5 IND#IndiaKaGame #MASvIND pic.twitter.com/LeyTsfZqSG — Hockey India (@TheHockeyIndia) April 6, 2019 Coming in at the third rank, field hockey enjoys popularity amongst two billion people of the world. With near about equal fans in Asia, Africa, Europe and Australia, the game originated in England in the late 1800s and traits of football are clearly evident in the sport. Being the national sport of India, hockey obviously has a huge fan-following in the country. In the process of regaining the level of popularity it enjoyed during the days of fine athletes like Dhyan Chand, India has dominated hockey over eight Olympic gold medals. 2. Cricket - 2.5 Billion Fans #OnThisDay five years ago, @imvKohli played one of his great chasing T20 innings to defeat South Africa in the #T20WorldCup semi-finals! Click below to watch the full match highlights! ð — ICC T20 World Cup (@T20WorldCup) April 4, 2019 It does not get any more 'English' than this. With its origin traced back to the 16th century in the Queen's land, cricket was a sport of the people who belonged to the higher bracket of the society. With a following of 2.5 billion people, a majority of which comes from the UK and the Commonwealth countries, the “gentleman's game” is the second most popular game in the world. India does not consider cricket as a mere game. It is a religion here and probably one of the most lucrative businesses too. Pioneers like Lala Amarnath and Sachin Tendulkar were the reason for this game turning into a drug for Indians and modern day athletes like Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni continue to carry on with their legacy. 1. Football (Soccer) - 4 Billion Fans Pensar em grande ðµð¹ð pic.twitter.com/08MMNZx3w7 — Cristiano Ronaldo (@Cristiano) March 23, 2019 Like there was any doubt about which sport would lead the list. Football, which if called 'soccer' anywhere in the world other than the States could lead to a brutal case of homicide, is the most favoured sport for a population of 4 billion people across the planet. Literally more than half the earthlings follow football. With legends of different eras continuing to keep the fame attached with the sport at its pinnacle, athletes like Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are the stars of the present. Only second to cricket, football boasts an enormous following in India. Having lost the momentum for quite the stint, football is regaining popularity in the country thanks to tournaments like Indian Super League and I-league. Having recently moving up to the 101st rank on FIFA's rankings, players like Sunil Chhetri and Gurpreet Singh Sandhu have become national favourites.
  6. It feels like the nickname 'Red Devils' may be befitting for the Manchester United defender, Chris Smalling who left the Barcelona FC forward and Argentine legend, Lionel Messi flat on the field with a disfigured nose dripping crimson blood all over the grass. Bloody nose for Messi, after Smalling went through him to win the ball in the air. But he's already back on the pitch.#MUNBAR #MUFCB #UCL pic.twitter.com/jglTiDusNz — Joga Bonito (@Jasoninho10) April 10, 2019 In the first leg of the quarter-finals of the Champions League, Barcelona FC were destined to go against a depleted Manchester United at Old Trafford. Going in as the dominant side of the rivalry, Ernesto Valverde's men never thought that they would be expecting such a tough fight by the English football club. In all of 90 minutes, Messi and team barely kept themselves afloat and only managed to win the game with the help of United defender Luke Shaw, who gifted them a score in the form of an 'own goal'. Having said that, the only thing to bring about a greater stir on social media was the incident in which the Smalling and Messi jumped to contest for the ball and the Englishman forearmed him in the face, drilling him to the ground as he did so. It was evident that the shot to the nose was unintentional and that the English defender was clearly going for the ball. During the post-game interview, Smalling spoke about the toughness and intensity his team brought to the game and how Barcelona has failed to foresee such a competition. “I think it [the challenge] came when we were right on the front foot,' he told BT Sport. 'We had to bring the intensity they're not used to every week and there's a lot to play for in the second leg.” “We pressed them high and made it difficult. It's a shame we couldn't get the goal. I thought we created some good chances. We had a spell in the first half where we went after them and then we looked nervy, but after half time we got at them.” 'The whole team, we nullified them. I think there was only one other save for David de Gea. We knew we had to bring that intensity that they're not used to.” “It was a good battle, my yellow card on Luis Suarez out of all the challenges I thought it was the softest.” However, the fans of Barcelona FC and those of Lionel Messi were livid with Smalling's overaggressive play and called him out for the charge: Bro the last time Messi got a bloody nose this happened, Smalling you f*cked up... pic.twitter.com/SDGtUTrLMm — Mod (@CFCMod_) April 10, 2019 They broke Messi's nose and think they will survive Camp Nou?

  7. The most important aspect about any sport is its fans. They're the reason why the players, the staff and the coaches play the sport. They give the players the confidence to give their best on the field and whichever their favourite team is, they really love it. But sometimes, the actions of some mad fans not only bring disgrace to a person but also the team they support. Similar humiliation was witnessed by Juventus when over 140 of their fans were arrested for possessing dangerous objects right before the UEFA Champions League game between Ajax and Juventus in Amsterdam on Wednesday. The Italian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for the Interior, Matteo Salvini, claimed that 120 of those held were Juve supporters. "Around 120 were detained," he said in a Facebook Live video. "People were found carrying objects that were not exactly appropriate for a trip to the stadium,” he added. © Reuters "Football is a beautiful sport but only with clean hands and a clean face, without creating trouble, so be good," he further said. As per reports, two separate groups were arrested by the authorities. First, a group of 46 were apprehended at a metro station and later another 61 were detained at the Johan Cruyff Arena. On the other hand, dozens of Ajax supporters were also reported to have clashed against riot police in separate incidents outside the stadium and were dispersed using tear gas and water cannons. The arrested fans were taken to a detention centre by bus, as per 'De Telegraaf'. Despite the match ending in a 1-1 draw and Cristiano Rolando being the star for his side, this traumatizing incident certainly humiliated the visitors a lot.
  8. Arguably one of the highly-rated young talents in the country, KL Rahul climbed up the ladder in Indian cricket on the basis of consistent performances. Making full use of the opportunities, his breakthrough 2013-14 season laid the foundation of Karnataka's Ranji Trophy triumph, proving his credentials as a first-class cricketer. Then, a profitable 2016 IPL season saw him earning his cap for the national team. His appetite for runs further gave India an opportunity to boast of an extra option at the top of the order. And, over the years, the 26-year-old has established himself as valuable addition to the Indian cricket team. But, apart from his artistry with the willow, Rahul is also looked upon as a youth icon - thanks to his distinctive personal style. KL Rahul Tattoos & Their Meanings Whether it's his choice of clothing or trend-setting hairdos, Rahul continues to enjoy the status of one of the most stylish cricketers in the Indian team. The dashing right-hander, who continues to carry out his on-field responsibilities in style, has also been a big fan of tattoos - something that has captured the imagination of cricket fans. We've all seen the multiple warrior-style tattoos which cover much of his skin. But, while his dedicated fans know the story behind some of his pieces, much of the art he has on his skin has been a mystery. But, not anymore. In an exclusive interaction with MensXP, the Red Bull athlete finally revealed seven of his favourite tattoos and what they really mean to him. Lighthouse On Left Forearm © Red Bull While a lighthouse might seem like an abstract tattoo to many, for Rahul, it has a special meaning. The Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) opener has got a lighthouse tattooed on his arm in a bid to remember his home. The right-handed batsman grew up by the beach in Mangaluru before he shifted to Bengaluru to pursue his interest in cricket. One look at the lighthouse tattoo takes Rahul back to the memories of his childhood home. Key With Ram Horns © Red Bull A true Aries, Rahul was eager to get a tattoo around his sun sign. That's why the Indian opener for a customized version with ram horns to go with it. The key – which goes around his forearm – signifies being open to learning new things and unlocking his mind with new experiences. Clock On His Bicep © Red Bull The clock tattoo on the inside of his left bicep has the hands inked at 11 o'clock. Rahul was born at 11 o'clock which is why the clock hands are tattooed at that position. The phrase “Veni, vidi, vici”, which is Latin for “come, see, conquer” is tattooed around the clock to signify that Rahul's time as an Indian cricketer has begun and he intends to conquer the world with his bat. All-Seeing Eye On His Left Bicep © Red Bull This tattoo is a reminder that his grandparents are always watching over him and are protecting him. Deshi Basara Script On Right Forearm © Red Bull Rahul is a huge fan of the comic book superhero Batman. The expression Deshi Basara – which means “to rise up” – is from the 2012 Batman film The Dark Knight Rises. 284 In Roman Numerals © Red Bull This tattoo runs across the right side of his torso. It is his Test cap number for India. He was the 284th cricketer to play for the Indian national cricket team, so this tattoo is very special to him because he had to work really hard to earn the spot in the India team. Parents' Names Tattooed On His Wrists © Instagram/@rahulkl KL Rahul has his mother's name Rajeshwari on his left wrist and his dad's name Lokesh on his right wrist. When his parents started getting annoyed about the rising number of tattoos he was getting, KL Rahul got their names tattooed on his wrists. Since then, they haven't had a problem with him getting more tattoos. More Tattoos © Instagram/@rahulkl The first tattoo KL Rahul ever got was a giant wing on his back when he was 17 years old. He also has the image of his dog Simba tattooed on his back. His left hand has the number one on it, which is one of his most recent tattoos. He got the number one tattoo because it is his jersey number in the Indian cricket team. He also has the number XI tattoo on his bicep, which was his jersey number when he first started playing for India. The rose tattoo on his left hand symbolizes new beginnings. The tattoo of arrows on his left hand is to protect him from harm. The owl tattoo on his left hand is a symbol of wisdom and knowledge. He also has tattoos for water, air and sun across his body, which are the three elements that are important to him.
  9. 25 years ago, when a premature baby took birth in retired Lt. Col. B.D. Saha's family, asphyxiated as he was taken out of her mother's womb, the doctors had sensitised them to the possibility of severe brain damage and other medical problems that may occur as the child went on to grow. “On the fourth day since Ankush's birth, his heart had stopped functioning. He was a preterm baby who was going blue and black, clenching his fists as he gasped for air,” recalls the father of Ankush Saha, the athlete with intellectual disability, who went on to win silver at the 2019 Special Olympics World Games in Abu Dhabi. You and I are different. We look different, our likes and dislikes are different and different are the ways in which we learn new things. There are various people in the world, 200 million to be exact, who deal with intellectual disability (ID) and fail to comprehend and learn new skills at a speed similar to that of an average human being. Having said that, they too have the passion to strive for greatness and have excelled in all walks of life, sometimes far more than us, the “normals”. Albeit, their journey is that much more difficult, it is their resolve to make good of their lives in this testing world that helps them go places. When it comes to sports, a global nonprofit body known as Special Olympics, looks to put people suffering from ID under tough test of fitness, strength and skills, and reward them with great laurels for their dedication towards the discipline. In 2019, the organisation held the World Summer Games in Abu Dhabi and the Indian contingent of 284 athletes displayed excellence as they bagged a total of 368 medals which included 85 golds, 154 silver and 129 bronze, making it their most successful performance in the nine times they have participated. But all this information is available just a click away on the internet. What continues to remain aloof from the ever expanding grasps of the world wide web are the tiny but important details that not only influence but also run the lives of such special athletes. I decided to do something about it. In the past couple of weeks, I got in touch with some Indian Special Olympics medallists and got to spend some quality time with their families. From representing India at the World Summer Games to the idea of a life after retiring from sports, here's what no one else will tell you about the lives of Special Olympics athletes of this nation: Becoming A Special Olympian With Uncertain Future Dinal Jain - Special Olympics Medallist In order to be named a 'Special Olympics athlete' a person must have an intellectual functioning level (IQ) below 75; significant limitations must exist in two or more adaptive skill areas; and the condition must manifest itself before the age of 18. State meets are organised all around the nation where two athletes per sport are selected from every state for national level competitions, following which the World Summer Games selections take place. After winning gold at state and national level, the athlete must attend and pass through a tough selection process in four consecutive camps post which a letter is sent to the athlete's parents saying that they are a member of the final contingent. Having said that, the grueling process may not bear fruits for these sportspersons the way their parents had hoped. According to the policy guidelines of Special Olympics Bharat (SO Bharat), Indian body under Special Olympics, the selection criteria states: “An athlete is eligible for selection only once for World Games to ensure exposure to maximum number of athletes in India.” So, even if special Indian athletes, who are involved in popular sports like swimming, do bag medals at the World Games, they will not be allowed to compete ever again, just because there are dozens of swimmers with ID and SO Bharat believes in giving others the opportunity to go for the Games. “The policy guidelines of SO Bharat follows the practice of giving a chance to more and more Special Athletes to participate at the SO World Games. SO Bharat has over 1.4 Million Athletes registered with them. More and more Athletes are encouraged to participate in this transformational experience,” Mr. Victor R Vaz, National Sports Director, Special Olympics Bharat told me over email. Need For Coaches Who Understand Special Athletes In the case of the coaches for special athletes, the job expects you to have a lot more than just the knowledge about the game. It requires you to be patient, understanding of people with special needs and have the ability to make them understand their roles. “You need to spend more time with them and figure out different ways to make them understand what needs to be done,” says Sharath Gayakwad, 2010 Asian Para Games bronze medallist, who coaches Special Olympic medallists like Shashank Mahesh and Dinal Jain in Bengaluru. Sharath Gayakwad, 2010 Asian Para Games bronze medallist and Coach “When it comes to Down Syndrome, Autism or any special category, the mood swings remain the same and handling them is a very tricky thing. The coaches must be selected keeping their ability to manage these problems along with the knowledge of the game,” says Gayathri Mahesh, Shashank's mother. “Coaches should be selected on the basis of their experience, as it should, which I could not see in Abu Dhabi (during the 2019 World Summer Games). Most of the coaches claim to be working in special schools but they failed to understand the smallest needs of the special kids,” said another parent who chose to remain anonymous. How Is Special Olympics Bharat Contributing? According to Special Olympics Bharat's website, their vision is “to transform communities by inspiring people throughout the world to open their minds, accept and include people with intellectual disabilities and thereby celebrate the similarities common to all.” They have taken multiple initiatives such as the Athlete Leadership Program (ALPs), Healthy Athlete Program, Young Athlete Program and Youth Activation that aim to focus on their leadership skills and help them become independent based on the principles of sports. Ankush Saha - Special Olympics Medallist However, some of the parents feel that the organisation is not doing enough. “After the World Summer Games, they don't even look at us. That's the end of the Special Olympics, that's the end of the child,” the anonymous mother shakes her head in disappointment. Coaches on the other hand, believe that the organisation does provide some support to the athletes. “When it comes to the facilities, we do have the infrastructure. Of course it is not up to the mark of USA, China or Australia but we do have some good facilities,” says Gayakwad, who coaches swimmers at Bengaluru's Pooja Aquatic Centre. Once Retired, What's Next? No matter how rosey the present may feel for these athletes, the future for some of them does not look too promising. Athletes like Shashank who train to swim faster every single day are also on medication to slow their movements down due to his Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Such is the paradox that is creating major concerns for the parents about their children's lives once they are done with sports. “He (Shashank) is on medication and that in itself is pulling his strength and stamina down… He has lost his confidence because he feels like he is getting tired too quickly,” says Mrs. Mahesh. It is therefore imperative for special athletes to look for an alternative career than sports. “Shashank is done with his school and will soon will get his college degree, too. What kind of a job opportunity am I looking at for my son, now? Maybe the role of taking files from one room to another. Is he made only for that?” asks the concerned mother. Shashank Mahesh - Special Olympics Medallist, With Mother “Sports helps them improve their confidence, personality development and social behavior. Alongside sports participation they can always learn different vocations which could be resorted through other NGOs. There are opportunities beyond sports as well, in Special Olympics that can be availed,” Mr. Vaz says. During the time I spent with these athletes, I got to inspect their traits and the way they manage to carry on with their day to day lives. People like Shashank who suffer from moderate autism have quite a few extraordinary talents. Passionate for the things they want to pursue, with no strings attached to social expectations or materialistic desires, they also have excellent memory. Such characteristics are not only ideal for the betterment of the society but any international organisation would love to bring such attributions to their team in a heartbeat. People have asked me a million times as to why I am after this story so badly, what is it that has kept me invested in the uncut, unfiltered version of their lives when all the major publications had decided to turn a blind eye? This is why. The lives of all 12,43,246 such athletes with intellectual disabilities must be given the attention and appreciation that they deserve. People like Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni have the following of millions and millions of Indians, as they should. They have worked and hustled hard to reach where they have but so have Ankush Saha, Dinal Jain and Shashank Mahesh.
  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. You can get creative ideas from almost anywhere, and there's nothing wrong in taking inspiration from them. However, things go wrong when you take too much inspiration and end up low-key copying it. We are sure, Bollywood knows this feeling just too well. However, gone are the days of getting inspired by the West. Our directors these days look up to regional movies, particularly South Korean movies to take inspiration from and the most recent example is Salman Khan's upcoming movie 'Bharat'. For those who didn't know, 'Bharat' is an official remake of a South Korean film 'An Ode To My Father'. While some movies are called official remakes, others are simply lifted from the original one. Here are 10 Bollywood movies which we didn't know were 'inspired' from some of the biggest South Korean movies: 1. Rocky Handsome - The Man From Nowhere Starring John Abraham in the lead, 'Rocky Handsome' is the official remake of Lee Jeong-Beom's film 'The Man From Nowhere'. The story is about a mysterious man and a young girl he makes friends with. When the girl is kidnapped and her mother is killed, the man goes to extreme lengths to save the girl. 2. Ek Villain - I Saw The Devil This Mohit Suri directorial starring Sidharth Malhotra and Shraddha Kapoor was loved by many for its fresh storyline and Riteish Deshmukh's brilliant performance as a villain. What most people don't know is that 'Ek Villain' is actually copied from a popular South Korean film 'I Saw The Devil'. However, the Bollywood version is not as gory or violent as the Korean one starring Choi Min Shik, which is till date considered to be one of the best films ever made. 3. Zinda - Oldboy 'Oldboy' is a neo-noir action thriller about a man, who sets out to find out why he was kidnapped and kept inside a cell for 15 years, unravelling some disturbing secrets in his journey. While everyone loves the South Korean film (one of the finest movies ever made), hardly knows about 'Zinda' except for the people who acted in the movie. 'Zinda' starred Sanjay Dutt and John Abraham. 4. Jazbaa - Seven Days Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's comeback movie 'Jazbaa' might have failed to leave a mark at the box-office, but it was appreciated by the critics, especially Aishwarya's power-packed performance. 'Jazbaa' was copied from the South Korean movie, 'Seven Days' and follows the journey of a female lawyer, who has to now win an unwinnable case in order to save her kidnapped daughter. 5. Murder 2 - The Chaser Starring Emraan Hashmi, Jacqueline Fernandez and Prashant Narayanan, 'Murder 2' is a copy of another super hit South Korean film 'The Chaser'. Emraan Hashmi stars as an ex-police officer tasked with finding some missing *** workers. When a young woman is sent by him to entice the kidnapper, Hashmi sets out to find her. 6. Awarapan - A Bittersweet Life A hitman is asked to keep an eye on his boss' mistress. However, when he learns that she is being exploited, he decides to rescue her from the clutches of his boss. While actor Lee Byung Hyun flawlessly portrayed the conflict going on inside the character in the South Korean version, Emraan Hashmi failed to recreate the same magic or should we say turmoil in the Bollywood one. 7. Te3n - Montage Starring Amitabh Bachchan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Vidya Balan, this RibhuDasgupta directorial is a remake of the 2013 South Korean film 'Montage'. The movie features Amitabh as John Biswas, a 70-year-old man, who seeks help from a priest and a police officer to find the people who kidnapped and killed his granddaughter. 8. Do Lafzon Ki Kahani - Always Starring two of my favourite actors, So Ji-sub and Han Hyo-joo, 'Always' is a classic romantic South Korean film about a former boxer and a high-spirited telemarketer who is blind. Romance starts brewing between the two slowly, which changes their life forever. A Hindi version was made starring Randeep Hooda and Kajal Agarwal. If you are hearing the Bollywood movie's name for the first time, then you will get my point. 9. Rock On - A Happy Life Starring Farhan Akhtar, Purab Kohli and Arjun Rampal, 'Rock On' is a story of four friends who fail to make it big in the music industry as their band falls apart due to differences. Years later, they come together to rebuild the dream and embark on a journey they left years ago. This is probably the only movie on this list that was unanimously loved by both the audience and the critics. 'Rock On' is said to be based on the South Korean movie 'A Happy Life'. 10. Prem Ratan Dhan Payo - Masquerade Everyone knows that 'Bharat' is an official Hindi remake of a popular South Korean film. But, not many know that this is not the only film that took inspiration from South Korea. 'Prem Ratan Dhan Payo' is another chartbuster movie that was copied from 'Masquerade', a very famous South Korean film.
  12. You have to admit, the most exciting part about having a crush on someone is not knowing whether or not they like you back! The 'what ifs' usually rule your mind more often than not and you can't help but process a lot of assumptions at one go. The most blatant one though is figuring out how to get closer to the one you're crushing on. Not in a creepy way of course, but closer maybe emotionally, physically and proximity-wise. © Fox Star Studios We believe the only way to get definitive answers is not to sit there and assume what she's thinking but to be pro-active and act on what you already know or want to know! You should also give them subtle hints about that the fact that you're crushing on them and if feelings are mutual, you've already laid the groundwork for yourself! Hence, here are 5 ways that work like a charm in helping you get closer to your crush! (1) Follow Them On Social Media But Don't Be A Creep If you've met them once or twice, sending them a friend or follow request shouldn't be a problem. They'll surely accept it if you they know you. Once they have accepted your request, don't go nuts stalking them! I mean yes you can take a look at their profile etc. but make sure you don't 'like' anything accidentally. Also, stay away from creepy messages through DMs. That's just a straight up no! What you can do in fact is figure out what their interests and hobbies are through their profiles and use them to find a common connect. © Pinterest (2) Use Things In Common To Connect It's easier to start a conversation with someone you have something in common with than to aim in the dark. By that I mean if you find out she loves dogs and you do too, maybe strike up a conversation on love for animals or dogs. But if you don't like dogs, don't pretend you do or you'll be 'catfishing' her instead. Find what she loves doing, and if it's common with your interest and then strike up a conversation. © AA Films (3) Strike Up A Conversation Now, that you've made sufficient contact over social media with her, it's time to strike up a conversation on anything you may feel can connect you two. Don't push it though. Start the conversation slowly and steadily and build it up as you go forward. Figure out what's on her mind, try and be mildly sensitive and humorous about general stuff and try getting to know her better, once you establish a solid base. © Pinterest (4) Have A 'Memeship' Maybe your conversations don't last too long or happen as often as you want them to. That doesn't mean you go absolutely lull and silent. You can still continue to drop by her DMs with funny meme's that can make her laugh, or start a short conversation either on the meme or on the day in general. Having a memeship with someone you like is healthy and sometimes necessary. Although, be careful of the kind of content you send her through those memes. It shouldn't be something that offends her. © Twitter (5) Ask Them Out On A Date Once you've established a basic flow of communication through conversations, social media poking and memes, you can definitely move forward and ask her out on a date. Either you can ask her out for a coffee because that's a safer option than asking her out for drinks. If you do ask her out for drinks, it'll in all probability fall under the assumption of you wanting to have *** with her later. Well, most times it does. But she's your crush, so I am sure you'd like to take her out and get to know her for real before any other need for intimacy arises. So, ask her out for a nice cup of coffee, lunch or even dinner and I am sure she'll say yes! © Instagram Social media has become a necessary tool to establish any kind of communication and you need to know how to use it well if you want to get to know someone better. Don't over-indulge through it, or harass someone from it but try and follow these steps above to decently introduce yourself and your intentions, to your crush.
  13. Do you remember the inaugural match of the Indian Premier League (IPL), the one which was initiated by none other than Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders in 2008? And in the first match itself, we got to witness some scintillating fireworks by Brendon McCullum when he scored an unbeaten 158. Astonishingly, whenever KKR and RCB have been pitted against each other, something or the other has happened that has intensified the rivalry between these two giants. From Gautam Gambhir and Virat Kohli's verbal spat in 2013 to RCB being bundled out for 49 in 2017. Other than this, Chris Gayle's dominance to Sunil Narine and Chris Lynn's 100 + partnership in the power-play, there are several instances that come to mind. With the teams locking horns for the first time in IPL 2019, we hope we get to see another epic encounter like this. © Instagram Talking of KKR first, winning two out of the three games in the tournament so far, the Shah Rukh Khan-owned team will be playing after a long gap of five days. Hoping they are over with their loss in the super over to Delhi Capitals, it will be exciting to see how they keep up the motivation at M Chinnaswamy, Bangalore – a venue that has been a happy hunting ground for the franchise. Being in a good form off lately, Dinesh Karthik and men would be looking to stabilise their upper order so that there is someone to accompany the Caribbean Andre Russell in the finishing overs. © AP RCB, on the other hand, are still trying to find the winning combination in this edition of the IPL. Having played four games and lost all of them, skipper Virat Kohli would be eager to lead from the front and make it count against arch-rivals KKR. A consistent cause of worry for the men in red has been their bowling attack. While Yuzvendra Chahal has eight wickets in four outings and is the current Purple Cap holder, the rest of the RCB bowlers have half the number of Chahal's wickets in as many games. Mohammed Siraj's tally of four wickets is followed by Umesh Yadav's two. Another big concern for RCB will be their sloppy fielding in the game time and again. They have dropped catches and missed opportunities that could have changed the whole scenario of the game. While the team is desperate to get two points on the board, it is important that they do the basics right and pay attention to each department. With this, let's hope King Kohli is able to get a point on the board and end his winless drought.
  14. In the world of cricket, Mahendra Singh Dhoni is known for his many talents that have allowed him to rule our hearts over the year. His leadership skills saw Team India scaling new heights in international cricket. And, his blistering middle-order batting and lightening quick glovework continues to aid the team he represents on the field. But, apart from his talents on the field, Dhoni has managed to earn respect and admiration of cricket fans across the globe for his humility and down-to-earth attitude. Arguably a great human being, the Jharkhand cricketer has once again set an example for other cricketers by giving the hardworking ground staff their fair share of limelight. With the sons of soil! #WhistlePodu #Yellove #MIvCSK ð¦ð pic.twitter.com/gAXBBz5sGe — Chennai Super Kings (@ChennaiIPL) April 2, 2019 Ahead of the high-profile clash between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings at the hallowed Wankhede stadium, Dhoni obliged the 'sons of soil' for a special photograph in a bid to show his gratitude for their tireless efforts on the ground. The special photograph was shared by Chennai on their official Twitter handle where Dhoni was seen in the company of the ground staff alongside teammates Suresh Raina, Harbhajan Singh and Mumbai's Director of Cricket Operations, Zaheer Khan. © Twitter/@IPL On the cricket front, Chennai's away game against Mumbai is touted to be a pulsating encounter as both the three-time IPL champions will be eager to outwit each other when they take the field on 3rd April. While Chennai is currently looking solid at the top spot with three consecutive wins this season, Mumbai have found themselves languishing at the seventh spot with just one win in three matches so far. Rohit Sharma's men were shocked by Delhi Capitals (DC) in their opening game. They did manage to bounce back after defeating Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in their second match. But, an eight-wicket loss against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in their third game pushed them down the table.
  15. We've mostly seen those movies or read those novels where the guy loses the girl (or vice versa) because he's so focused on his career that he can't give his relationship the attention it requires. That always generates a bizarre moral dilemma. You feel happy that the character is succeeding in his professional life, but it's sad that he doesn't have time for stuff outside of his career. If you're an ambitious career oriented man, you can probably relate to these romantic fables. You don't want to give up your career, but you also don't prefer to be lonely. So, how do you find an effective life balance between the two? © MensXP 1. Get Your Bae On The Same Page Simple communication between two people is a crucial step in a happy, healthy, growing relationship. When you're super absorbed in your career, your interaction often jumps out the window. But if you want your relationship to progress and outlast, you ought to talk to each other. Share your concerns about balancing your time with your partner. Figure out ideas that can help in making things work as a couple, and be attentive towards your end goal. If your relationship is going nowhere, maybe it's not worthy to stress so much over the balance. © MensXP 2. Classify Your Priorities A 21st-century romance often means no one is at home to make dinner, and quality time can be difficult to find. Hence, prioritizing or recognising where you require focusing most of your attention on and where you can let go of things, can be a bit of a task. For instance, if things are stable with your job or business, it might be worthwhile to spend some time with your significant other. If you're worried about upholding a good reputation at work or of your business, and your love life is in a good zone, pour a little extra into your profession. Make it crystal clear to your partner that they're a very important part of your life. The base is effective communication. © MensXP 3. Balance And Appreciate Sacrifices Always remember that balance is created over long periods of time. Acknowledge and accept the relevance of your partner's sacrifice to your career and be willing to do the same for them and their dreams in future. No relationship works without going through sacrifices. Also, this is not something that can happen immediately. It will take ample time to recognise your wants and needs. Have patience! © MensXP 4. Practice Two Step Decisions No matter how headstrong your personality is; your decisions now affect each other. You have to recognise your partner has equal say in that issue. Be ready to handle the consequences of the other person's actions and respect their viewpoints. Don't forget that while you're focused on balancing your career and personal life, your partner may also face the same. If you will show unconditional support and respect, you're more likely to get it in return. The decisions taken mutually work more effectively than those taken on an individual basis. © MensXP 5. Apologize And Forgive A successful relationship requires patience and forgiveness. With this as the foundation, finding balance alongside your career is satisfying. Every couple will experience challenges and make mistakes during their relationship. But this is what makes us human. Hence, learn to apologize and forgive your partner. This will help you to build more trust and faith in each other while staying angry and holding grudges will worsen the situation making it more stressful for you. © MensXP Every relationship is a bit of struggle or rather a power struggle, but if two people are committed to each other, nothing can stop them. Just remember to always communicate and whenever any mishap arises, keep that in mind that you two are against the problem; not against each other.
  16. What would you do if you were caught in the middle of a fight that jeopardizes your safety? No, let us rephrase that. What would you do if you were caught in the middle of a fight that jeopardizes your LIFE? Will you be willing to risk your life over a fight that you have nothing to do with in the first place? No, but what are your options when you don't get the choice of making that decision to save yourself, and just happen to be there? Well, something just that scary happened to a few foreign tourists visiting the Amer Fort in Jaipur. Two female elephants carrying foreign tourists on their backs got into a fight with each other in the fort premises and created a lot of panic and chaos. As one elephant pushed another and engaged in a head-to-head assault, the tourists riding on the elephants had a scary moment before they managed to safely disembark. Even the mahouts initially failed to come up with a plan to control the warring elephants. Other elephants in the vicinity had to be taken away to save them from the wrath of the female elephants. While it is common knowledge that elephants share strong, intimate bonds with one another, we wonder what provoked them to lose their cool on this instance. This also reminds us to check out 'Junglee' that hits the theatres tomorrow. Starring Vidyut Jammwal as a vet, the film tries to explore and present the kind of bond humans and elephants share with each other, through Vidyut and his friend Bhola's camaraderie. Take a look at the trailer for 'Junglee' here.
  17. These two words can fill any man with dread, but make sense when it comes to buying men's underwear. While some men like to lounge in the comfort of an airy pair of boxers, for others they can be too loose to comfortably pull off.

  18. Ever since making his debut in 2016, Jasprit Bumrah's consistent bowling performances have allowed him to establish himself as India's go-to bowler in dire situations across formats. If his anomalous, sling-arm action has troubled some of the best in the business, Bumrah's natural pace and peculiar release point of his deliveries make him a nightmare for the opposition batsmen. Such has been his accuracy that the steaming yorkers he bowls manage to find the bottom of the stumps more often, than not. For someone who thrives in limited-overs cricket, Bumrah takes his game to a whole new level in the Mumbai Indians (MI) jersey while plying his trade in the Indian Premier League (IPL). The success and popularity of Bumrah can be ascertained from the fact that a lot of youngsters have been seen trying to copy him in the past. An under-13 youngster was spotted copying Bumrah's action in Hong Kong's U-13 League recently. And, then, during India's tour of Australia, a young kid was also spotted executing Bumrah's unorthodox to perfection. Have RCB found their Jasprit Bumrah? ð¤ #IPL2019 pic.twitter.com/ib4C2oCSFW — ESPNcricinfo (@ESPNcricinfo) March 26, 2019 A similar incident came to the fore recently when a young seamer, with an action similar to Bumrah, was seen bowling to Moeen Ali in the nets during the training session of the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). The brief video shared on the social media showing the young bowler imitating Bumrah has taken social media by storm. The young bowler in question is believed to Mahesh Kumar, a local lad, who has been a net bowler for RCB in the past. Though it will still take some time for the youngster to get a game with RCB, cricket fans were clearly smitten by the next Bumrah. While some claimed that RCB might have unearthed a new Bumrah, others were just in awe of the similarities between the two. Virat Kohli-led RCB will hope to make use of the young bowler, if he's given an opportunity, to turn their fortunes in the IPL. After suffering a crushing seven-wicket defeat at the hands of Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the opening match, RCB will be eager to bounce back when they host Mumbai in what promises to be a pulsating contest on 28th March.
  19. Amidst the heat of elections, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has been accused of stealing a template for its party's new website. A start-up, W3Layouts, has alleged that the party used their template but deliberately removed the backlink. W3Layouts also alleged that the party had removed the code wherever W3Layouts' name was mentioned as soon as the matter was brought to light. The company published a blog post explaining the matter and even posted a series of tweets exposing the whole debacle. Why Removed author information from css ?? But it is available at https://t.co/PyHj2HymCG pic.twitter.com/Nih9cFJe85 — W3layouts (@W3layouts) March 22, 2019 “While the visible backlinks were removed, it was clear that BJP was still using the W3Layouts code as it was evident in the source code of the page,” one of the tweets said. After a few days of back-and-forth banter, BJP decided to take down the code from their website. In response, the party said, “It was a free-to-use application. Their code was dropped after they insisted on a backlink, as it is not something we do in the normal course. We had in fact offered to mention their name but since it didn't find favour, we preferred to work with the alternate solution. We are not using their template.” © Twitter Although the matter has been settled with BJP dropping W3Layouts' template, the start-up founder stressed that the license agreement was clear. He said, “You are not allowed to remove back-link to W3Layouts in a template unless you have paid for the template.” Both the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi have decided to remain tight-lipped on this matter. In fact, the PM has found himself facing flak for using selling #MainBhiChowkidar merchandise on his Twitter handle.
  20. Have you ever imagined surviving on the internet without Google? Don't bother if you haven't, because it's not as easy as it sounds. I mean, just think about it for a minute. If you're using a Google-owned Android phone, then you're already out because that phone is probably one of the first things you check in the morning after you've woken up. Even a lot of iOS apps rely on Google's services. You take an Uber to work, you're using Google Maps data. You open Safari browser, you're again using Google's Search engine by default. In fact, even a lot of news websites, which you trust, run Google-owned ad services. © Pexels Look, I can pull out a lot of examples like this, but the point that I am trying to make here is that Google is everywhere. It's really difficult to avoid Google, and there's no easy way around it. That, however, isn't stopping a Reddit community from trying. A dedicated community which goes by 'r/deGoogle' on Reddit is filled with thousands of users trying to live a life without Google. The goal, apparently, is to try and avoid handing any personal information over to Google and its services. The subreddit, at its core, looks like a dumping ground for various links to apps and services which you can use without relying on Google. Think of the subreddit like a collection of 'tips and tricks' for surviving on the internet without Google. © Reddit - deGoogle Is it really possible to cut out Google from your life? The answer, unfortunately, is no. Yes, it's almost impossible to avoid Google without having a major effect on the way you use the internet. Between all of its products, Google has billions of users. Besides the Google search engine and other services like YouTube, G-Suite, etc., you're looking at Google's presence in other domains like artificial intelligence, fibre internet, and more. Heck, the company just announced its entry into the world of gaming with Stadia. Even if you manage to keep yourself away from these Google services, you're still relying on Google while using apps and services like Snapchat, Spotify, Pokemon Go. Why? Well, these services are all based on Google's Cloud platform. So as a netizen, you're relying heavily on Google in some way or the other. © BCCL Yes, it sounds a little terrifying considering how much Google knows about you and your day-to-day activities. Of course, there are ways to avoid Google and it's services up to an extent. However, if you choose to go that route, then you may have to make some serious alterations on the way you use the internet. In case you're interested, you can check out some ways with which you can cut out Google from your life here.
  21. Despite being written off as title contenders by the media, Rajasthan Royals set their fans' hearts racing after clinching the Indian Premier League (IPL) trophy in the inaugural season. Under the leadership of Shane Warne, the Jaipur-based franchise went on a rollercoaster ride, winning 11 matches to top the points table before bagging the coveted IPL trophy. But, for a side that had initially set the tone of the tournament, Rajasthan, despite their knack for unearthing obscure, high potential talent has never managed to live up to their reputation of champions. From 2009 to 2012, Rajasthan consistently finished at the bottom half of the points table. In 2013, Rahul Dravid's leadership changed their fortunes as Rajasthan to make the cut for the Play-offs for the first time in four years. After finishing third in the group stage, Rajasthan won the Eliminator against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and looked promising in their efforts to reach the final. But, a spirited performance by Mumbai Indians (MI) in 2nd Qualifier saw them crashing out of the tournament. If their heart-breaking loss left fans in disbelief, the infamous spot-fixing scandal that led to the arrest of Rajasthan's S Sreesanth, Ankeet Chavan and Ajit Chandila further dented their reputation. The following seasons saw them finishing fifth and fourth in the points table respectively before their suspension for two years. © BCCL Like Chennai Super Kings (CSK), Rajasthan returned to India's cash-rich T20 extravaganza last season, but couldn't match the heroics of MS Dhoni's men. Ajinkya Rahane-led Rajasthan finished fourth in the points table, but a 25-run loss in the Eliminator at the hands of Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) crushed their dreams. In a bid to push for the title this season, the Royals splurged Rs 13.80 crore at the 2019 IPL Auctions. They roped in Jaydev Unadkat (Rs 8.4 cr), Varun Aaron (Rs 2.4 cr), Oshane Thomas (Rs 1.1 cr), Ashton Turner (Rs 50 lakh), Liam Livingstone (Rs 50 lakh), Shashank Singh (Rs 30 lakh), Riyan Parag (Rs 20 lakh), Manan Vohra (Rs 20 lakh) and Shubham Ranjane (Rs 20 lakh). Jos Buttler's carnage at the top last season - which made him the leading run-getter for Rajasthan with 548 runs to his name - makes him a threat for Rajasthan's opponents this year as well. But, with captain Rahane at the other end boasting of a strike-rate of 118.24 - lowest by any player facing at least 200 balls in the last two editions, Rajasthan will have a mismatch at the top, unless they fix it this time around. © BCCL The availability of Steve Smith is a major boost for Rajasthan this season. He will find adequate support in the likes of Ben Stokes, Sanju Samson, Ashton Turner, Manan Vohra and Rahul Tripathi who are all capable of accelerating the innings for Rajasthan. The pace attack looks good with Jofra Archer, Varun Aaron, Jaydev Unadkat and Dhawal Kulkarni in the fray. The spin-bowling department will probably see the likes of Shreyas Gopal, Ish Sodhi and Krishnappa Gowtham combining for Rajasthan this season. Overall, Rajasthan looks solid on paper. But, the lack of back-up Indian pacers and absence of proven candidates on the bench could hurt Rajasthan's chances this season. Squad: Steve Smith, Ajinkya Rahane (c), Ben Stokes, Sanju Samson (wk), Shubham Ranjane, Ashton Turner, Stuart Binny, Shreyas Gopal, Sudeshan Midhun, Jaydev Unadkat, Ish Sodhi, Prashant Chopra, Mahipal Lomror, Oshane Thomas, Aryaman Birla, Riyan Parag, Dhawal Kulkarni, Jofra Archer, Krishanappa Gowtham, Liam Livingstone, Jos Buttler (wk), Varun Aaron, Shashank Singh, Manan Vohra, Rahul Tripathi.
  22. As one of the original eight teams that were established for the first season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) first in 2008, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) have had a lot of experience in the league but not the silverware to boast about through the years. While having made it to the IPL final in 2009, 2011 and 2016, RCB have never won the trophy. Ever since the beginning, the team has seen some brilliant players like Rahul Dravid, AB de Villiers, Kevin Pietersen and now Virat Kohli, lead the squad in red and gold but have failed to win the tournament even once, making it one of three original franchises to have never lifted the cup. Last year, in the franchise's eleventh season in the league, Virat Kohli's men consisted of an outstanding coaching staff. With former Kiwi skipper Daniel Vettori and Ashish Nehra as their bowling coaches and the World Cup winning coach for Team India, Gary Kirsten looking after the batting department, there was a lot of experience backing up RCB. The roster was loaded with big hitters like de Villiers, Brendon McCullum and King Kohli himself and a unique blend of spin and fast bowlers like Yuzvendra Chahal and Australia's Nathan Coulter-Nile, who are wicket-hungry and in their prime shape. However, despite all the experience, skills and talent aboard, the Royal Challengers were not as good as they appeared on paper. Injuries, bad judgement calls and the lack of team chemistry on their part made Bangalore one of the worst teams of the league that did not even qualify for the playoffs and were at the third last position on IPL's points table, just two points above the Delhi Daredevils (now Delhi Capitals), which was the worst team of them all. After their season ended on a rather forgettable note, Kohli expressed his displeasure with the team's performance in a tweet: I really believe in the concept of, "you either win or you learn". We fought hard and gave it our all but one thing is for sure, next season we definitely will bounce back stronger than ever with our learnings from this season. Take care. @RCBTweets #RCB #IPL2018 pic.twitter.com/b0QM9chRAN — Virat Kohli (@imVkohli) May 24, 2018 Kohli made a pledge to the RCB fans that they would look to make the necessary changes and try their best to be better this season and it looks like the management is dedicated to keeping that pledge. During the IPL auction ahead of the twelfth season of the league, RCB spent a total of Rs. 16.35 crores out of their purse of Rs. 18.15 crores on buying talents Shivam Dube (Rs 5cr), Shimron Hetmyer (Rs 4.2cr), Akshdeep Nath while retaining the core members of the team like Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Parthiv Patel and Yuzvendra Chahal. Squad: Virat Kohli (C), AB de Villiers, Parthiv Patel, Yuzvendra Chahal, Tim Southee, Umesh Yadav, Navdeep Saini, Kulwant Khejroliya, Washington Sundar, Pawan Negi, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Moeen Ali, Mohammed Siraj, Colin de Grandhomme, Shimron Hetmyer, Devdutt Padikkal, Shivam Dube, Heinrich Klassen, Gurkeerat Singh, Himmat Singh, Prayas Ray Barman, Mandeep Singh
  23. Sometimes things can go terribly wrong with even the best of us and no one can understand this better than Johnny English and a bunch of cops in Bulgaria, who learnt this in the 'spiciest' way possible. These Bulgaria cops were sent on a super important mission of dispersing a crowd of protestors outside the Bulgarian parliament, in the capital Sofia. The cops tried their best but thanks to the weather, they came back home with teary-eyes and a video which is now going viral as an epic fail. via GIPHY The cops initially tried stopping them by using barricades, but when things went out of control they decided to use pepper spray on them. However, the cops failed to check the direction in which the wind was blowing. So, the moment they sprayed it in the air, the pepper spray went into their eyes and the cops were seen running away while rubbing their eyes in pain. They had to later rinse their eyes with water. Bulgarian police used pepper spray against protesters in front of parliament, but didn't take the wind direction into account pic.twitter.com/B8b7uQyIEG — Jasper Neve (@JasperNeve) March 17, 2019 Ever since the video was shared on social media, people on Twitter are having a field day tripping over this video.

  25. Cricket is India's biggest religion and its religious followers, aka the Cricket fans, are now gearing up to welcome this year's biggest festival. Yes, we're talking about the much-awaited Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 which begins on March 23. Ahead of IPL, everyone is busy promoting their respective teams and so is the King of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan. As KKR gears up to play their first match against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) on March 24, the team's proud owner Shah Rukh Khan has posted a promo on social media with the message "Aakhri Dum Tak Aakhri Run Tak". “You pray for us, we play for you” Let's be in it together, Aakhri Dum Tak Aakhri Run Tak. https://t.co/hDfglxXYMh#KKRHaiTaiyaar @kkriders — Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) March 18, 2019 He wrote, "'You pray for us, we play for you' Let's be in it together, Aakhri Dum Tak Aakhri Run Tak." SRK's Kolkata Knight Riders is hands down one of the best playing teams in the IPL and this year too, people have high hopes from the team. KKR is being coached by Proteas legend Jacques Kallis and is led by Dinesh Kartik who recently unveiled KKR's new jersey. We're sure all the KKR fans are praying hard for their team to win this year, now all we have to see is whether SRK's team manages to live up to the expectations of fans.
