  1. Until yesterday, Barbados, the island nation in the Caribbean, used to be known across the world for being the place where 'Friends' character Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) hooked up with Joey (Matt LeBlanc), but the Windies' 'Universe Boss', Chris Gayle, decided to change that last evening when he caused it to rain sixes on the island against the visiting England cricket team. WHAT A KNOCK. Chris Gayle makes an incredible return to international cricket, reaching his 24th ODI hundred with a single off of Chris Woakes. It's come from exactly 100 balls. Clinical.#WIvENG | FOLLOW â¬ï¸ https://t.co/pQbWOWuEQM pic.twitter.com/0uUFCPJK4h — ICC (@ICC) February 20, 2019 If 'Balls Lost' was a stat maintained by the International Cricket Council (ICC), it would have to be Chris Gayle's name on the top of the charts. In a comeback match of his extremely successful career, the 39-year-old was able to get his 24th ODI century. He scored a massive 135 runs off 129 balls while having three 4s and 12 thunderous 6s to achieve this feat. What is crazier than these numbers is the sheer strength Gayle continues to command. There are sixes that just make it beyond the boundary line and then there are the 'Gayle Storm' sixes that disappear somewhere on stadium rooftops or even go out of them. Yesterday, Barbados experienced one such storm. During the beating he put on the Englishmen last evening, Gayle's 12 sixes included a monsterous maximum that travelled for more than 120-m with the ball nowhere to be found. However, the 'ball-finding' experts believe that it may quite possibly be resting on the decks of a ship docked in the adjacent port. But that was just one of eight incidents when the umpires had to introduce a new white ball into the game because of Chris Gayle. Running out of balls in Barbados#ENGvWI Gayle ð¥ð¥ — @RavitejaFan (@asisht84) February 20, 2019 Gayle looked like a batsman fresh in his prime during the first ODI between England and West Indies. Beating Shahid Afridi's record for the most number of sixes (476), Gayle got the top spot in that category when in the 14th over, Gayle sent another one out of the park on a Moeen Ali-delivery. His new found form has come up after a couple of days since the athlete had publicly announced that he would be retiring from One-Day International cricket post ICC World Cup 2019. Although Joe Root and the rest of the English squad was able to chase down the Windies' mammoth total of 360 runs to win the first ODI, Gayle's return to the Caribbean roster in such fashion, just a couple of months before the world cup is nothing but good new for his team. Regardless, his fans were thoroughly entertained: After many days : Gayle is back into team Ball is out of groundð¤£#WIvENG #BBCCricket #IPL — Prem reddy (@premraina48) February 20, 2019 Universal Boss telling English kids how to hit ball out of the grnd.

  2. The sixth season of 'Koffee With Karan' is hands down the best season of all time. In fact, with each episode, the show is only getting bigger and better, both for the fans as well as for the trolls. The previous episode saw the cast of 'Student Of The Year 2' Tiger Shroff, Ananya Panday and Tara Sutaria brew gossip and coffee on Karan Johar's coveted 'Koffee' couch. The episode ended with Ananya Panday winning the hamper and now she is winning the internet by trolling herself.

  3. Unrequited love can be daunting. Essentially because it's a lonesome feeling and is never or partially returned. When you experience love that has become corrosive or toxic or is one sided, it's very unpleasant to deal with these feelings and more often than not you want to wish them away. Sometimes you'd desperately want to wish to not be in love with that particular person but you can't help feeling a certain way. Feelings have a direct link to the mind and more often than not, if your mind is strong you can control how you feel towards something. If you let your mind take over your conscious or sub conscious self, you give it absolute control, becoming a slave to your thoughts and feelings. So, in order to control the way you feel, you need to strengthen the mind. Falling out of love with someone works on the same principle. I know you may feel why should anyone fall out of such a beautiful, cathartic feeling. But love isn't always beautiful. Once scathed, it takes a long while for it to become whole again. © Fos Star Studio So, in case you really want to fall out of love with someone, I definitely can't do some voodoo magic but I can give you some helpful tips in order to successfully let go and feel complete again and to fall out of a strong emotion. Here are 5 ways you can tune your mind in to falling out of love with someone. (1) Do Some Exercises To Strengthen Your Mind When your mind is strong, you'll be able to overcome any feeling that makes you remarkably uncomfortable. It will be a lot easier to let go of how you feel towards something or balance it in your head. Learning a skill is a good way to stay focused and improve mind strength. It also serves as a good distraction! You can learn how to repair a car or cook. Each skill occupies the mind in such a way, it makes it more efficient with time, making it easy to let go of an unsuitable emotion. Mind exercises are fun and let's face it, some of us really need them! © Pintrest (2) Write Them A Letter But Don't Send It Sometimes things become way messy if you keep spilling your anger towards someone who does not reciprocate the same feelings. In such a case, what I'd suggest is for you to write down everything you're feeling in the form of a letter for the other person but don't send it to them. At least not yet. © Pintrest You can detach yourself from all the negative emotions and anger by spilling them in a letter, where you say anything and everything that comes to mind. This helps as the best release mechanism and lets you vent out every possible painful emotion you hold towards them. Maybe when you're over this feeling you can send them the letter, but by then you'd be over them and there wouldn't really be a need. (3) Pay Them No More Attention This is the best and the toughest way to fall out of love with someone. Just pay them no more attention and your mind on an autopilot will follow suit. You have to consciously decide to not give them anymore attention and that's tough because you are so used to focusing on their needs and wants. It's time to focus on yours and stop paying any heed to them. You need to stop ruminating on the past and think about how great or nice this person was. This is the past and it's never coming back, so it's best to focus on yourself and your future. © Pintrest (4) Discuss The Situation With An Unbiased Outsider It's always best to talk about how you feel with a third person so they can give you an absolute unbiased opinion. Make sure though you don't talk to someone who knows the two of you or is a friend of hers. It's best to talk to a therapist as they provide the best analogies and perspectives but in case you don't want to go to one, find a friend who barely knows the situation, a family member or someone you trust and get an opinion from them about how you should let go or fall out of love. © AA films (5) Remember that 'Nothing Good Gets Away' In a letter to his son, John Steinbeck once said 'nothing good gets away' and that's the best rationale you can find when you're falling out of love with someone. What it means is, if you were meant to be in love with someone and the person was meant to reciprocate your feelings, then it wouldn't go away no matter what. But the reason that it's fizzled out is because the person is probably not right for you and if she was, it wouldn't get away. © Pintrest In simpler terms, everything good or bad, happens for a reason and if it's meant to be , it will definitely fall in to place. So, if you're falling out of love with someone, you may fall in love with someone else, which will probably be good for you too! Yes, I agree falling out of love with someone is difficult. I only say this because I have gone through it and it's taken a lot of effort, emotional to and fro and certain realisations to reach that point of no return. But once you reach it, it's liberating like no other and it makes you feel like you've shed the old skin and you're never going to do it again!
  4. Xiaomi is set to start 2019 with a bang as the company announced the Mi 9 in China today that has some impressive specifications and design. The Mi 9 is the first flagship smartphone by the Chinese company that has a very attractive price i.e. $445 (Approx. Rs 31,660). © Twitter The smartphone is powered by Qualcomm's latest chipset i.e. Snapdragon 855 that offers better performance than its predecessor i.e. the Snapdragon 845.

  5. Internet is a bizarre place. Here anyone can become famous at the click of a button, sometimes even the ones who didn't do anything to get that attention. Remember the time when Coldplay performed in Mumbai and desi fans made a wrong Chris Martin trend, because they share the same name? Or the time when Sonu Nigam said something controversial and people started cursing Sonu Sood? Something similar has happened now with Sunny Leone. View this post on Instagram One last stop before my night is done. #CarDiaries A post shared by Sunny Leone (@sunnyleone) on Feb 12, 2019 at 9:56am PST I am sure even the 'Jism 2' actor must be confused right now as to why is she trending for an exam she never gave. Well, turns there are two people with the name Sunny Leone in the country. One is a successful actress and an entrepreneur; the other one is a 27-year-old from Bihar, who recently topped the Bihar Public Health Engineering Department (PHED). Bihar's PHED released a provisional merit list of candidates for the recruitment of Junior Engineer (JE) and that's how we came to know about her. Sunny Leone version 2.0 not only qualified the exam, but also topped it with a total score of 98.5 points. She scored 73.5 education points and 25 experience points. According to the picture, Sunny Leone is the daughter of Leona Leone. Reportedly, she will now serve the state as junior civil engineer. The recruitment exam was conducted from January 15 to January 31, 2019 and a total of 17911 candidates have qualified the exam. While Sunny Leone's name has kind of stirred a storm on the internet, we honestly don't even know if the list is credible or not. Why? Because right below Sunny's name, there's another candidate 'bvcxzbnnb' who has ranked third in the exam. But, we're sure both the Sunny Leones are enjoying the attention they are getting right now.
  6. As last year marked the completion of a decade since the deadly attacks of 26/11, there still exists individuals who survived through this hell and are now living a normal life. One such individual is my client, RSK (name undisclosed), but is brave enough to narrate her story. A story that she now feels is just part of the past and has blown away like wind. Shot And Lying In A Pool Of Blood © RSK A then resident of California, RSK had come over to Mumbai to attend a wedding and decided to meet with her friends at a restaurant at the Oberoi Hotel at Nariman Point. Before even placing an order, RSK and her friends heard something that sounded like “firecrackers” and upon inquiring they were told by the hotel staff that it was the sound of the locals celebrating India's win during a cricket match. The next thing they heard was “duck! duck! This was followed by a shower of bullets and a hand grenade explosion. Two of her friends passed away on the spot, while one of her other friends managed to leave safely. RSK however wasn't able to leave, because she was shot with several bullets and also by shrapnel from the explosion. RSK shouted for help (in Hindi and English) for the next 18 hours lying immobile in her own blood; until a policeman heard her and carried her on a stretcher. It was this time when she realized that one of her arms was hanging loose, almost detached and that she was injured all over her body. Learning To Live Again With A Bullet Still In Her Body After being admitted to a nearby hospital on 27/11, RSK underwent multiple surgeries including bone grafting, a nerve implant and removal of about 7 bullets and shrapnel from her body. She was discharged officially from all medical treatment in February 2009. In fact, she still has a bullet in her body behind her pelvis which was too risky to be removed. After receiving rigorous physiotherapy for the first two years post her surgeries, she finally gained back most of her mobility and movement. 20 Kilos Overweight And The Trap Of Stupid Diets RSK lost a lot of lean body mass staying immobile in the hospital for 3 months and once she returned home, she put on around 20 kilos during the course of a few years. There arrived a time when her doctor suggested her to undergo a knee-surgery due to increased stress on her joints due to high bodyweight. She would lose weight, and gain it back due to an unsustainable approach towards her diet and exercise. She tried a variety of diets: the “liquid” diet suggested by a famous nutritionist, the GM diet and etc. And the result was weight loss and even more weight gain post the dieting phase due to eating out of proportion. © RSK Counting Calories And Weight Training = 22 Kilos Lost It was not until 2017 that she realized the importance of following something more sustainable and consistent. Since then, her nutritionist asked her to focus on her overall caloric intake and macro nutrients; she was also allowed to enjoy some unhealthy options. “I love junk food and I eat some everyday. But I keep the portion-size in mind”, said RSK. She, now, also makes sure to accumulate at least 150 minutes of exercise per week which includes kickboxing, weight training and suspension training. From the time she took this decision, she successfully lost 22 kilos (from 99 kilos to 77 kilos) and has kept it off. Today, she not only feels lighter but also finds it easy to perform activities of daily living due to regular exercise. © RSK As RSK's fitness specialist, I push her just enough without going overboard. Due to limited range of motion in both her arms, I make sure that she trains through the available range. Her workouts include squats, pushups, deadlifts, lunges, burpees, jumping jacks and almost all movements one can think of. The suspension trainer is assistive during movements that require her to deload some weight for pain-free movement. She calls exercising “the necessary evil” but she makes sure to take out the time to engage in it 5 times a week. RSK is one of my special clients because she is one of the very few individuals I know who has seen death so closely. “I'm not scared to die anymore. But I value life more than ever”, said RSK when I asked her about her almost-fatal encounter. Apart from her will power, RSK gives credit to her supportive family and friends for getting her back to normalcy.
  7. `Last year, Vivo launched the NEX and it was among the first few phones to sport a pop-up camera. The brand was also the first one to bring an in-display fingerprint scanner. Today, Vivo announced its first phone of 2019 in India, the V15 Pro. The V15 Pro brings in all the various trends from 2018, and clubs it into one. Having multiple rear cameras on the rear is the latest trend, and Vivo has decided to join the bandwagon as well. Amazon and Flipkart have been teasing the phone for quite some time now and here's everything you need to know about it. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla It has a glass back with a colour gradient and a notch-less display with smaller bezels. Vivo boasts that it has further cut down the chin, offering a better screen-to-body ratio of 91.6 percent. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla On the front is a 6.4-inch AMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution. It comes with a Snapdragon 675 processor along with 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. For authentication, it features an in-display fingerprint scanner, as well as face unlock. A dedicated Smart Button activates Google Assistant and the phone also ships with Vivo's Jovi assistant. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The V15 Pro includes a triple rear camera setup consisting of: a 48-megapixel primary sensor with Quad Pixel technology, 8-megapixel wide-angle lens, and a 5-megapixel depth sensor. The Quad Pixel technology can combine four pixels into one large pixel to deliver a high-quality 12-megapixel picture. This comes handy in low-light pictures when details tend to get blurry. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The pop-up module houses a 32-megapixel selfie camera and Vivo is confident it's sturdy enough to withstand daily wear and tear. The hardware is assisted by AI Portrait, AI Beauty, and AI Super Night Mode for even better output. The phone ships with Android 9 Pie based Funtouch OS 9 and is backed by a 3700mAh battery. For fast charging, the phone also supports dual-engine charging. Lastly, Game Mode 5.0 ensures better gaming performance by prioritizing resources and slightly overclocks the CPU to reduce frame-drops. It has been priced at Rs 28,990 for the 6GB+128GB and shall be available via all major retailers as well as online sellers starting Feb 20th.
  8. With the iPhone X, Apple completely ditched the home button in favour of gestures. The gesture navigation system was soon rolled out by multiple Android OEMs, even though Android doesn't natively support it. Currently, Android OS relies on three core navigation buttons: back button, home button and a recents tab. Google combined the home and recents buttons in Android 9 but kept the back button untouched. Though, this could change in the upcoming Android Q update. © YouTube According to a report by XDA Developers, Google is now planning to completely ditch the conventional Back button to opt for a gesture-based navigation system. And this is a good thing for all of us. Gestures are for sure the future of smartphone navigation, and with core support, the user experience will be drastically better. Google last year launched Android Pie with a new one-touch button and lots of gesture features. Though, the update let users switch back to the older method of navigation. © YouTube Even though a lot of Android phones have gesture navigation available as an option, it works due to the external skin or UI that the OEM has made. This isn't always as smooth and intuitive as native support. In comparison, Apple's navigation is extremely fluid due to deeper software integration. Swiping left on the screen will enable users to go back and swiping right will take users from their current app to the previous app in a card-like transition. Swifter animations are another major revamp that Google could bring with the update. © Google Google shall be announcing the next major update to Android at Google I/O developer conference, that is scheduled for 7 May. Google is also expected to launch a redesigned app info screen with “Material Theme”. There are also rumours that Google could finally bring a system-wide dark mode and even more detailed privacy controls. Google intends to make it easier for users to understand and determine the permissions they are giving to an app. Please keep in mind, these reports are based on early builds of Android Q, an official feature announcements is pending.
  9. If fashion students are told that for a masterclass in maximalism, they can choose only one person as their reference subject, no one should really have any trouble choosing that person. Ranveer Singh fits the bill effortlessly, but the thing that always keeps him relevant is the unassuming manner in which he carries off everything, like he doesn't even realize that it's 'not ordinary' and 'extra'. It's like he feels at home wearing stuff that other people won't even dare to in their wildest dreams, and that is what sets him apart. One important thing about his wild ensembles is that they teach us inclusivity. Right from wearing skirts and Angrakhas to his wedding to wearing ensembles that outright looked like 'Ghagras', this man has always been so secure about his masculinity, that he never paid heed to naysayers on what 'men should not wear'. The latest instance had him wear a pair of boots with high heels to an award show, and owning the look like a boss. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Who won't want to look as graceful on a red carpet? Plus, heels, of course, makes one look taller than they are. Only if every man was as easygoing as Ranveer to actually try it out and reap the benefits. © Instagram/Asiavisionawards © Viral Bhayani Coming to his outfit, we love the turquoise snakeskin patterned suit by Rohit Gandhi and Rahul Khanna. Plus, it fits him like a second skin! © Viral Bhayani © Instagram/Asiavisionawards All we can say is, Ranveer Singh legit is the fashion icon everyone should learn a thing or two from, even if they aren't on board with everything he wears.
  10. 'Gully Boy' may have taken the box office by storm, but actually, it's the hearts of the audience that the movie seems to have captured. Given that it was one of 2019's most anticipated movies, Bollywood fans couldn't contain their excitement, and all the hype around the film ensured that fans were kept primed for the 'real deal' from the very beginning of the year. Now, with the film's release on Valentine's Day last week, the Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt starrer has been topping every chart that there is, including its box office collection, which has already crossed the 70 crore mark with four days, and the audience cannot seem to get enough of its songs, characters, plot and what not. (c) Excel Entertainment However, if there is one thing in particular that people cannot stop gushing about after a viewing of 'Gully Boy', it is the tremendous effect the supporting cast of the film has on the entire experience. Movie-goers simply cannot stop praising the impact and dimension the supporting actors have lent to the film, heightening the movie-watching experience even further. Viewers have even picked their favourites amongst the leading supporting actors and have gone on to add how each of them carries the film forward on their shoulders, supported by their talent and stellar acting. 1. Siddhant Chaturvedi (c) Excel Entertainment MC Sher is so realistic a character on-screen, and the man behind the character is an equal marvel. Talented and a natural in front of the camera, Siddhant performs the role of the guru and confidante perfectly in the film. He inspires trust and admiration with his character and we love that he stands beside Ranveer like a pillar of strength, all the way. Um, Gully Boy, scratch that, Bollywood needs more of Siddhant Chaturvedi — Chavvi (@chavvim) February 18, 2019 Siddhant Chaturvedi is the next big thing in Bollywood! Stole every scene he was a part of! #gullyboy — Abhijeet Dash (@AbhijeetDash9) February 17, 2019 2. Vijay Raaz (c) Excel Entertainment The man needs no introduction, yet Raaz's new avatar in the film had us sitting on the edge of our seats the whole time. Gone was the funnyman, and here was a violent and abusive husband and father, and his constant fight against defiance almost makes you hate him, until you behold the man suppressed within the layers of a human who has long lived a handed-down life. Also worth mentioning the terrific acting skills of Vijay Raaz. Have always been a fan. Such an understated yet powerful performer. Zoya Akhtar and whoever did the casting deserves as much applause as any other department. The casting for most parts is spot on. #GullyBoy — Ranjit Nair (@ranzzit) February 18, 2019 How good was Vijay Raaz in #GullyBoy?! Absolutely loved it. From 'Kawwa biryani' to this, man has come a long way. — HK. (@HammaadKhaann) February 18, 2019 3. Amruta Subhash (c) Excel Entertainment A regular face in the Marathi film industry, Amruta nails it as Murad's mother with her feisty and loud comebacks. Initially a pawn at the hands of fate and her husband, she decides to get her own back when things get out of hand. She can be gentle and a tigress all at once and we loved how authentic she made it look on-screen. Vijay Raaz as Ranveer's father is excellent n drives the story forward.Vijay Maurya is a Fab actor n his dialogues are seamlessly stiched in the bylanes of Dharavi.Sheeba Chadha as Alia's mom is v good n Amruta Subhash as Ranveer's mom wins u over completely. #GullyBoy — Faridoon Shahryar (@iFaridoon) February 17, 2019 The supporting cast! Amruta Subhash and Vijay Raaz. Both freakishly good actors! Zoya did that! #GullyBoy — . (@grizzlyknope) January 9, 2019 4. Vijay Varma (c) Excel Entertainment What can we say about Moeen? He is probably one of those people in the film you feel hot and cold about. You can't hate him, and yet you can't love him either, but you do appreciate him for who he is and what he represents and stands for in the film. How he selflessly stands beside Murad, despite having ideological differences, is a testimony to true friendship. On second watch of #GullyBoy can I just say Vijay Varma is absolutely incredibleð¥ the jail scene was everything — N (@pakidillastani) February 16, 2019 The performances in gully boy were so good it is difficult to decide who was the best among the others. The winner was not so obviously, Vijay Varma. Insane performance. — Orgyinho (@Siddiotic) February 17, 2019 5. Srishti Shrivastava (c) Instagram Albina Albina Albina. She is the one who was dhoptoed by Sakeena in the film due to her overtures towards Murad. Her dialogues take you for a spin and you cannot help but notice the girl taking the role and making it her own in such a short period of time. OMG !!!

  11. While it's safe to say that an average man is most likely to sport a printed shirt just on a tropical getaway, a recent trend boost may make you think twice. Over the last couple of years, prints on men have been making their way to the mainstream fashion world. Ranveer Singh may be the king of prints, but that doesn't mean prints have to be as maximal as he is. As more and more men embrace this trend, there is a whole world of possibilities emerging with this look. Prints can add a whole new level of edge and make your basic outfit exciting. Here's a definitive guide on what pants to wear with all kinds of printed shirts: 1. Minimal Print © instagram @vickykaushal09 Not all prints have to draw attention, you can go classic with paisley, gingham or polka dots. A printed shirt can even elevate a basic jeans and sneakers look, if styled well. If you're opting for print for the first time, go easy on the colour scheme. © instagram @ishabhansali Keeping it monotone and building your outfit around one colour is advisable. Keep the accessories and layers basic with either black or brown when it comes to formal wear. For casual, a basic white or black jacket and white sneakers should do your outfit justice in the most minimal way possible. 2. Hawaiian Print © instagram @diljitdosanjh Just because Hawaiian shirts are associated with being on a holiday doesn't mean these babies can't be rocked all-year round. As prints go for a modern upgrade, so do the age-old classics. Major fashion houses took a spin on Hawaiian shirts in grown-up colour schemes of black, forest green, and sand offset by pops of colour making it super trendy. © instagram @naheedee Choose a Hawaiian shirt in a slim cut, contrary to the older boxier version for a more structured fit. Pair your shirt with chinos and oxford boots for a spin on casual Friday or well-fitted jeans and sneakers for a relaxed fit. Evoke holiday vibes all through the year! 3. Floral Print © instagram @vickykaushal09 Not everyone dares to pull off this supposedly 'feminine' print, but it's 2019 and we need to get over these outdated gender norms for good. One can rock a floral printed shirt with a pair of rugged denims or shorts and sneakers for a casual brunch look or pair it with a solid coloured suit for understated elegance. © grazia If you can't find any other way to pair your floral shirt, black jeans will be your saviour. It's also important to pair the textures right in terms of look and feel. For example, a shiny or leather bottom won't flatter a cotton dress shirt. Go for a smaller print size or minimal colour scheme if you are a little hesitant to wear bright florals. Your style will blossom, anyway! 4. Animal Print © viral bhayani When we say animal print, Ranveer Singh's all leopard print suit comes to mind, doesn't it? As daring as it was, pulling off animal print doesn't have to be a very difficult task. Considering that these animal prints are super bold, it's best to keep the rest of your outfit understated. Sticking to basic silhouettes and pieces like chinos, classic denims and blazers are key to make your shirt the centre of attention. © instagram @ishabhansali For an understated yet classy way to pull off animal print, opt for monotone prints like zebra and pair with bold solid coloured separates. This contrast will definitely act as a welcome change from your usual take on animal print, which mostly involves warmer tones. Now go out there and rock prints like a pro!

  15. In what turned out to be a nerve-wreaking encounter, Melbourne Renegades clinched their first Big Bash League (BBL) title after getting the better of their city rivals Stars in the summit clash on 17th February. In the first ever all-Mebourne BBL final, Renegades found themselves in a spot of bother after posting a mediocre total of 145 runs. To make matters worse, a 93-run opening partnership between Ben Dunk (57) and Marcus Stoinis (39) had the Stars heavily favoured until their incredible implosion that saw them losing seven wickets for just 19 runs. For the better part of the game, the BBL trophy for the eighth edition looked to be heading towards the green side of the city. But, the Glenn Maxwell-led side finished their innings at 132/7, losing the match and title by 13 runs. While the Renegades pulled off a heist in the final, it was their captain Aaron Finch who stole the limelight. Straight to the pool room. #GETONRED #BBL08 pic.twitter.com/o4hgWpu1Yh — Melbourne Renegades (@RenegadesBBL) 17 February 2019 The Renegades captain became the topic of great discussion on the social media after he was caught destroying a chair with his bat, on his way to the dressing room. Asked to bat first, the Renegades fans were surely delighted to see skipper Finch in ominous touch early in the innings. Despite the loss of two early wickets, Finch was taking on the bowlers and timing the ball to perfection. He had smashed two boundaries and was looking dangerous when luck eluded the Renegades skipper. Cameron White was on the strike against Stars' Jackson Bird when the former played a straight drive that deflected off the bowler's boot and crashed onto the stumps, catching Finch - who was at the non-striker's end - short at the crease. Aaron Finch going berserk on a chair paired with a famous tune #BBLFinal pic.twitter.com/WfeFWrloC1 — corbpie (@corbpie) 17 February 2019 The freak moment left commentators and fans watching on in disbelief. “That's not run out is it?” Fox Cricket commentator Shane Warne said. “Can you believe it Howie? That's a shame. He looked in unbelievable touch, like the Aaron Finch of old today. You've got to be kidding,” he added. Adam Gilchrist agreed it was “stiff”. If the dismissal caught everyone's attention, Finch's antics - moments later - on the way back to the dressing room became the talking point on social media. Walking back in disappointment, Finch swung and smashed a plastic chair. His anger boiled over and he took his frustrations out on the nearest thing he could once he had walked off the ground. His antics instigated all sorts of reactions on social media. While some came to his support, others slammed him for his theatrics. Aaron Finch is every local cricketer who has been given out LBW by one of their teammates #BBLFinal pic.twitter.com/nEV1k9CvTi — Odds.com.au (@OddsComAu) 17 February 2019 Sporting dummy spit of the year goes to Aaron Finch playing in the Big Bash Final in Melboune.#BBLFinal pic.twitter.com/4PaNDm9Hqm — Sports Freakshow â½ðððâ¾ð (@aussiebeastmode) 17 February 2019 #BBL08 Aaron Finch hitting a chair with his bat in frustration.

  16. Dating for most can be filled with pitfalls and perils. In the shadow of the #MeToo movement, it seems that men in the metropolitans are more on edge than ever before. Honestly, that might not be such a bad thing though, as we are in desperate need of reorganizing the man code and this part of a larger discussion, is best left for another time. This is, however, also causing a bit of a stir in the dating scene leading to many heartbreaks and disappointments. © Pinterest We're going to look at some of these challenges and discuss how best to handle these setbacks: There's Always Someone Scoping I am kind of glad I didn't grow up in the social media world. Snapchat and Instagram have made traditional confidentiality a thing of the past, as there are always other people spying, scouting and DMing their way into people's inboxes. Everyone gets DMed by someone looking for a quick chat, or some funny cute comment and it's mostly from the 'Thirsty' community. You shouldn't overlook the power of boredom either, I have come across a fair few adulterers in my recent travels across the country. Apparently, it's quite normal for housewives with unloving husbands to be involved with other men. I'm all for a progressive society, just be sure you know what you want and be weary of temptations and the slimy infiltrators as well. © Pinterest The Competition Is Relentless The competition may be relentless, but there's always someone else waiting in the wings. This is as true for dating as it is for anything else. As with the previous point, there are temptations all around, this means that there is always the hope of meeting someone better. The same is true for the women as well, guys are throwing themselves at women left right and centre in hopes that something will happen. Be it the timing, the moments, the drinks, the irrational in the moment decision… anything to close the deal. On repeat, such a cycle bodes for a disaster in any relationship. The simple solution to this one is to talk to your partner. Be honest about your feelings and if they are not being reciprocated then simply re-evaluate your own expectations or walk away from such a relationship. Either way, life is too short to be miserable and emotionally wanting at all times. © Pinterest Feelings And Real Connections Without wanting to be sappy, it does seem that many have devalued the importance of genuine connections. Words like sacrifice, honor and love have become mere throwaway words along with the likes of please and thanks. The meme culture would have most youths believe that feelings are a bad thing and that no one wants to “catch feelings”. It is especially true for young men, who seem to think having feelings is 'uncool' and the only cool thing is to not give a f***. But who am I to argue with the angry young man? With myself donning that mask numerous times a day (even now). Lately though, I realize the more I genuinely begin to care about stuff, the stronger it makes me. Makes me want to be better, do better and provide better for my kin. Care about things, care about friendships and loved ones and parents. © Pinterest To summarize, don't be complacent, don't be a d**k and mostly though, just be real. Be as real as you can without making it too uncomfortable for anyone. That way, you can at least always walk with your head held high.
  17. On 14th February, while the entire world was celebrating love in the wake of Valentine's Day, India was taken over by a state of mourning as its citizens bemoaned the loss of 40 CRPF paramilitary troopers who laid down their lives for the country in what is being termed as the deadliest terrorist strike in three decades in Jammu and Kashmir. A 20-year-old suicide bomber, Adil Ahmad Dar, from the notorious terror group Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM) rammed his explosive-laden SUV into the CRPF convoy at Awantipora town in the Pulwama district. With about 80kg of explosives suspected to have been used, the blast blew one of the buses carrying CRPF personnel to smithereens, killing 40 soldiers and injuring others. AP The ghastly attack has, since, been condemned by politicians, celebrities and other bigwigs alike. There were also heartfelt messages posted on the social media from the sports icons of the country. Amid all the messages, Virat Kohli, too, voiced his displeasure at the cowardly attack and mourned the loss of Indian bravehearts. To further show his respect to the CRPF personnel martyred in Pulwama, the Indian cricket captain also postponed the RP-SG 'Indian Sports Honours' which was to take place on 16th February. An initiative of the 'Virat Kohli Foundation' and Sanjiv Goenka's 'RP-SG Group', the 'Indian Sports Honours' is an annual awards ceremony that celebrates the excellence of sportspersons in the country. The RP-SG Indian Sports Honours has been postponed. At this heavy moment of loss that we all find ourselves in, we would like to cancel this event that was scheduled to take place tomorrow. — Virat Kohli (@imVkohli) 15 February 2019 "The RP-SG Indian Sports Honours has been postponed. At this heavy moment of loss that we all find ourselves in, we would like to cancel this event that was scheduled to take place tomorrow," Kohli tweeted. Sanjiv Goenka and @imVkohli are deeply pained at the recent unfortunate event in Pulwama and express their solidarity to the families of the Martyrs. They have hence decided to postpone the 2nd edition of the ISH which was scheduled for 16th Feb19 in Mumbai, to a later date. — Indian Sports Honours (@sportshonours) 15 February 2019 "The RP-SG Indian Sports Honours that was supposed to happen tomorrow night has been postponed by Virat as a mark of respect to the CRPF jawans who were martyred at Pulwama by a tragic terror attack," the 'Virat Kohli Foundation' said in a statement. "The who's who of entertainment and sports industry were supposed to be present for the award ceremony. Every partner and all the sports stars and delegates associated with this award have been informed and communicated with, stating that hosting an event was unacceptable at this moment when India is mourning the death of its jawans," the statement further added. Kohli's decision to postpone the event was further hailed by his fellow countrymen on the social media. Kudos buddy .

  18. They say love is one-dimensional. But when you look at it blossom, you will find dimensions you've never envisioned before in life. Love grows in spectacular ways and you can only experience it if you meet the right companion along the way. You may ask what a 'right companion' truly is. Well, in very simple terms, someone who is true to you and understands your needs and wants, most given times. © Instagram But according to Kristina and Eugene, companionship is a very different concept. It's to familiarise each other with what their respective needs and wants are and use that as an advantage to have an absolutely fun relationship. Yes, you read that right. When was the last time you met someone who piqued your interests and matched it with theirs? Some of you may have found some likeminded people, but have you ever unanimously decided to give up the regular life and travel the world instead? That's what Kristina and Eugene's story is all about and it doesn't end there! It ends with a happy family indeed. © Instagram The First Time They Met Both of them met while they were still in university in Kyiv, the capital city of Ukraine. While figuring out their mutual interests on their check-list, the two bonded over common musical interests and hangout sessions post classes, following which they liked each other's company so much, they became best friends. Pretty soon their friendship transcended into a love interest and everything else made more sense than before. But the most astounding part was that their basics were not stamped on just romance, passion or love. The reason they were together was that they felt the most comfortable with each other, and we seldom forget that being yourself and comfortable around someone is the first rule of a good relationship. © Instagram "Our romance started from the point of perception that we don't irritate each other! Not a passion, desire or love! It doesn't sound very romantic, I know! But our affection increased each day and in 4 more years, we decided to become a family. 10 years have passed since we started our romantic relationship, but we are still the happiest couple and we are harmonious partners in all life spheres." - Kristina After all, love blossoms through an avalanche of comfort and familiarity, doesn't it! If you're in a state of absolute comfort with someone, wherein you don't have to pretend otherwise and you disseminate all your fears and tribulations equally among each other, real love truly sprouts from there. Couples today fret about long-lasting companionships or the lack of passion, but they forget that the ultimate companionship rule to live by comes from the premise of being yourself with the person you want to spend the rest of your life with. © Instagram What Made Them Stay Together? Apart from the easier quirks between two people, there are other things that make a relationship really challenging and workable. And this is where sharing mutual interests comes handy. Couples who share mutuality in ways that make sense, last longer. And by mutuality, I mean sharing similar interests that can change lives. Both Kristina and Eugene love to travel and that's the one thing that has bound them together tightly ever since they met. In college, the only thing that decided their fate was a 4-day trip that they took together, following which realised they've evolved from being just friends to something more transcendental! Since then, they have been travelling across the globe for over 10 years. © Instagram About two years ago, the couple decided to take their travels a bit more seriously and decided on travelling across Asia. And that's when their real journey as a 'family' began! "All 10 years of being together we travel – at least once a year. But two years ago we decided to have even a bigger adventure. We were not quite happy with our professions and wanted to reload ourselves. A long-time journey through Asia seemed a good way to do that. We had to give our apartment for rent and sell some stuff in order to have enough money for that. So we quit our jobs and were ready for a journey. By now, as a couple, we've visited 24 countries." - Eugene. © Instagram That's the thing about taking risky decisions in a relationship. They always go through because the support for it to work is so strong, it overpowers any hardship they may face. Just like how Kristina and Eugene did when they both decided to quit their jobs and take a stand on what to do next. © Instagram The Chapati Sojourn "We had started this journey in January 2017 from Fort Kochi and planned to stay there for only a few days. However, destiny had other plans, and on the second night, we came across a tiny, dehydrated puppy in the darkness, all alone." - Kristina © Instagram Chapati came into their lives like a surge of happiness and positivity during grim times. They found her scattering away, unfed and unwell and took her in their care to nourish her and bring her to life. "We found that we want to name her like our favourite Indian bread because she had the same tan colour and was very thin." - Kristina © Instagram The minute they named the dog, there was no looking back. They found a home in her and she in them, and she became a part of their travels and their family from that very moment! "Chapati brought many changes to our lives. She influenced our travel-philosophy: now we don't chase visiting all sightseeing places or try to see as many countries as possible. We learned how to relax and easily take deviations to our plans. Her own attitude to life often teaches us to be more flexible, readily get acquainted with people and even to communicate with those, who speak languages we don't understand." - Eugene © Instagram Bringing an animal into your life changes you as a person. The change is noticeable slowly and steadily. They teach you resilience, certain ways of triumphs, patience and the most important one- unconditional love. That's what Chapati taught the two after she came into their lives. She taught them to slow things down and recognise things for what they are, to see the ethereal beauty in things, to savour moments that are important and precious. © Instagram Their travel philosophy also changed trajectory. They learnt how it's not always necessary to travel to every place, soak in every bit of space or scramble around in a hurry just sightseeing or divulge their energy in agreeing upon what to do, what to see or what to understand. Chapati made it easier for them to relax and absorb only as much as they could. © Instagram "Many people believe (and we did before) that saving one dog's life will not defeat the global problem and will not change the world. Our revelation is that it actually changes the world. At first, it changes the 'universe' of the one saved, and then it changes your own 'world'. Her own attitude to life often teaches us to be more flexible, readily get acquainted with people and even to communicate with those, who speak languages we don't understand."- Kristina © Instagram What Is It Like To Travel With A Dog? "Travelling with a dog is definitely not easy. Each country and city have their own rules and attitude to dogs, which sometimes is impossible to Google in advance. You need to make a lot of 'paper work', you are always limited in places for eating and staying, transportation could also be an issue. It is hard, it is a bit costly, but it worth that. As we have to spend money on Chapati we always try to save when it's possible. So we prefer cheap hotels, we use trains and buses as long as it is possible." - Eugene © Instagram The biggest challenge Kristina and Eugene faced was the 'paperwork' that most countries implement to transport dogs. Financially they were still figuring their way but more than anything else, it was the documentation and the fact that a dog can't be a part of their lives unless she's legally bound to them, that was becoming a challenge. That took time and apart from that, facing challenges in nooks and corners of every street and every city wasn't easy. Sometimes they'd be stranded because no public transport would want to carry a dog and sometimes, they'd come across places that weren't too pet-friendly, so they wouldn't have the option to spend a quiet peaceful night at a hotel. © Instagram But most places accepted Chapati and made her travels with the couple favourable. Since she is so well-mannered and intelligent, even most non-pet friendly places allowed her inside and turned their whole philosophy on animals around. © Instagram "Still, travelling with a dog is a big adventure. We had so many escapades, touchy moments and movie-worth adventures together, like falling in love with Chapati, overcoming barriers on the way to adopt her, finding ourselves in the middle of nowhere at night, getting stuck in a town because no public transport allowed dogs there and it was impossible to leave, saving other dogs and being stressed whether those will survive, sleeping with cockroaches or at freezing temperatures, and even some illegal border-crossings and transportations. All these now seems a thrilling dream, yet we miss those times." - Eugene © Instagram Their favourite memory so far is trekking over San Fruttuoso in Italy and walking the rocky terrain in unfavourable weather conditions as all modes of transport were cancelled due to heavy rains! The three of them walked determined all through the trip, thinking about their future together and eventually making it back home to live it. They had no raincoats or umbrellas and braved the harsh rains. Chapati, with her might to stay strong and grounded, didn't pose as any trouble at all and she was a super trooper! "Drenched, I and Eugene felt ourselves to be the luckiest people in the world to have such a smart and attached dog, who was also all wet. Nevertheless, love was soaring in that wet air and the whole way we spent dreaming about our future. It actually looked like a happy end of a very tense movie. However, it wasn't, and many more adventures are waiting for us." -Kristina © Instagram Bringing Chapati into their lives is like a dream come true and they're solemnly grateful for each day as it passes. The Biggest Lesson Ever Having a dog in your life is the biggest blessing in disguise, according to Kristina and Eugene. If Chapati has reaffirmed anything it's the fact that their faith in communication shouldn't deter, because that's what keeps them strong and grounded. And by them, I mean Chapati as well. Communicating with a dog makes you more susceptible to understanding all sorts of needs and emotions between people and animals and it makes any bond way stronger. Staying together for almost 2 years now, Chapati's presence has made sure that their relationship surrenders its premise on pure communication between a man woman and an animal. © Instagram "Communication is also a clue to the mutual understanding with a dog. Try to perceive what a dog wants to transmit to you, do your best to talk in its language (a language of intonations, eye-contact and gestures) and you will never face any problems!"- Kristina A dog is a man's best friend. Up until now at least, I believed that this was just an idiom that was trying to transforms our instinctive animal behaviour to a more refined human one. But the meaning is way more literal and deeper than that. A dog is in all actuality a man's best friend and we have Chapati as proof, who took her saviours for family and gave them a lot to accept and ruminate about. We think any relationship that needs nourishing and strengthening doesn't need as much counselling as it needs some 'fur intervention'! Here's to 'Travelling Chapati' and her beautiful family. © Instagram "In 2017, we spent the whole year being together 24 hours a day. During these time we didn't leave each other even for a moment, Chapati included. We faced many difficulties, including financial ones. We had lots of challenges on the way. But we remained a team, a loving team. And even now, after 10 years of being together as a couple, we still never irritate each other". - Eugene
  19. As WWE India's Twitter handle suggests, it has been 20 years of pure destruction as Paul 'Big Show' Wight made his first WWE appearance in a special Valentine's Day steel cage match between the Texas Rattlesnake 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin and the company's owner, Vince McMahon. His first appearance on the show was one of the best debuts by any in-ring performer during the 'Attitude Era' as the 7 footer emerged from underneath the ring as McMahon's bodyguard and tossed Austin into the metal bars of the cage head-first. Having already wrestled in organisations like the World Wrestling Association for over a couple of years, Show had already made a name for himself. However, the fact that he had signed a deal with Vince McMahon and the World Wrestling Entertainment (https://www.mensxp.com/search.html?q=WWE) was kept under the radar and nobody had a clue about the plans for the giant's huge debut. “It was such a cool impact because no one really saw it coming. No one knew that I was committed to WWE, no one expected me to show up at Valentine's Day Massacre and the way they introduced me was pretty cool,” Wight told WWE. Wrestlers tend to lose out on fan-following from time to time and need to work on their kayfabe characters regularly to be liked by the WWE Universe and stay relevant with the changing times and a regular influx of great, young talents to the main roster almost every year. But, there was something about Wight as a person that made him likable throughout. Being a heel or a babyface didn't matter to him as whatever character he used to bring to the audience, they used to welcome it with open arms. Big Show has had one of the most illustrious career with the WWE. He is a 2x WWE Champion, 1x ECW Champion, 2x World Heavyweight Champion, 3x Hardcore Champion, 1x United States Champion, 1x Intercontinental Champion, 3x WWE Tag Team Champion, and a 5x World Tag Team Champion. He also won the Andre the Giant Memorial Trophy in 2015. Talking about what an amazing run he has had with the brand Show said: “I know a lot of people would think differently because I don't have enough 'wins'. It's never been about winning or losing for me, it's been about the show and the talent that I work with.”
  20. Owing to his scary eyes, throbbing veins and a chainsaw celebration, Dale Steyn established himself as one of the most feared fast bowlers in the modern era of cricket. His intimidating physical attributes are adequately backed by extreme pace, pin-point accuracy and ability to swing the ball both ways - the pivotal elements that saw him getting the better of some of the best in business. However, the persistent drive to bowl quick took a toll on Steyn's career that has been plagued by injuries. For almost an eighteen-month period - between the end of 2016 and mid-2018, the South African paceman could only play one Test due to repeated injuries. While the South African fans were worried, others contemplated the end of Steyn. © Reuters But, contrary to popular perception, Steyn returned to the field and is now nearing his best. During the Pakistan's recent tour of South Africa, Steyn was consistently clocked at speeds in the mid-140kph range, for the first time in years. And, now against Sri Lanka, the 35-year-old has not only been seen bowling the long, fast spells he was once associated with, Steyn took it a notch up by claiming an individual record. Most wickets for pace bowlers in Test history:@jimmy9 – 575@glennmcgrath11 – 563@CuddyWalsh – 519@DaleSteyn62 – 437@StuartBroad8 – 437 pic.twitter.com/QX1xQpmB8g — ICC (@ICC) February 14, 2019 With his outswingers humming and bouncers looking menacing again, the South African wreaked havoc against the hapless Lankans to record impressive figures of 4-48 in the first innings of the 1st Test at Durban. While the right-arm seamer couldn't bag a five-for, he did manage to break Kapil Dev's all-time record of 434 Test wickets. The legend continues on his upward rise. Dale Steyn currently sit's in 7th position on the all time leading test wicket taker list. He is only 15 wickets from 450 test wickets. Supreme fast bowling from the 'Phalaborwa Express'#ProteaFire #SAvSL pic.twitter.com/7F3lvmy4jW — Cricket South Africa (@OfficialCSA) February 14, 2019 Overtaking India's first World Cup-winning captain, Steyn is now the joint 7th highest wicket-taker alongside England's Stuart Broad in the all-time list of Test cricket. He is now behind Muttiah Muralitharan (800), Shane Warne (708), Anil Kumble (619), James Anderson (575), Glenn McGrath (563) and Courtney Walsh (519) in the coveted list. Despite rising in the all-time list, Steyn is just happy to return to the field, doing what he enjoys the most - bowling fast. "After not playing for two years (through injury), I feel like it's a blessing to just be playing again. I've almost had to start over. I'm not on 430-odd wickets, I'm on 20 since breaking Polly's (Shaun Pollock's) record. It's nice to finish a three-match Test series against Pakistan and not have someone write: 'He's an injury away from retiring'. It's nice to contribute again. It feels like I've started over," Steyn was quoted as saying by icc-cricket.com. #Steyn still controlling his raw & searing pace even if he has been playing for #SA over decade across formats. #Steyn is #SA team delight.

  21. Yesterday, on February 14, the nation was painted red, not in the colour of love but with blood as nearly 40 CRPF (Central Reserve Police Force) personnel were martyred in one of the worst terrorist attacks ever in the state of Jammu & Kashmir. AP When half the nation was celebrating the day of love with their partners, there were many families who were mourning the death of their loved ones. Cheers of laughter and joy soon turned into tears and cries of the families of jawans, who were mercilessly attacked when they were travelling in a CRPF bus that was blown up using explosives. Reportedly, a suicide bomber named Adil Ahmad Dar alias 'Waqas Commando' crashed his SUV, laden with more than 350kgs of explosives, into the bus that was part of a 70-vehicle convoy on its way to Pulwama. Pakistan-based terrorist organisation Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) claimed responsibility for this terror attack. AP The attack has left the families devastated and the nation in shock. From prominent personalities to commoners, everyone is filled with rage and are now voicing their anger on social media. From Akshay Kumar, Priyanka Chopra, Abhishek Bachchan, 'Uri' actor Vicky Kaushal to Taapsee Pannu, Alia Bhatt and more, celebrities are standing strong with the families of martyred jawans as this cowardly and despicable act can't be forgotten easily. Numb beyond belief at the dastardly terror attack on #CRPF soldiers in #Pulwama. May God give peace to their souls, and strength to their grieving families. Wishing the injured a speedy recovery. We can't let this be forgotten. — Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) February 14, 2019 The Pulwama attack is despicable. My heartfelt condolences to the families of the martyrs.

  22. Denim: every man's go-to piece of clothing which sticks with them season after season. We rely on our trusted denims far too much, thinking we can never go wrong with styling them. Even the most versatile piece of clothing can go wrong if you don't match the shades right. As denims come in various colors and washes, it is essential to know what textures and shades to sport with every kind. Fret not, for we have put together guidelines on what to wear with the 4 most common shades of jeans available. Take a look and thank us later. 1. Light Wash Jeans © vickykaushal09 Perfect for a day look, light washed denims are definitely a gamble when it comes to matching them right. For an appealing everyday look, go with a basic crew neck tee shirt or a hoodie with white sneakers. Since 90s trends are back, light washed denims are having a moment in the sun. Pair them with contrast coloured uppers such as green, pastels, navy or black. Frayed hem and ripped detailing look super stylish with light washed denims as well. 2. Dark Wash Jeans © ishabhansali For those wondering, this category is only for indigo and charcoal shade of dark denims. Any dark denim which is not black falls under this section. Mostly available in skinny fit and stiffer fabric due to it's nature, dark washed denims are most versatile than other shades in terms of wearability. Go for a blazer or a polo neck tee on top for a business-casual look or pair them up with a checkered shirt. Don't opt anything too form-fitting either. Dark denim is ideal for the much-hyped 'denim on denim' look for which you can opt for a lighter shade of denim on top. Pair these babies up with primary colors, neutrals and prints. 3. White Jeans © theanisha As much as it is really calculated, keeping white jeans clean can be an intimidating task. We can't stop the chutney bowl from spilling for you, but we can sure tell you how to rock white denims. First things first, you should go for an almost white denim, like a cream or stone washed shade instead of pure white as they are fairly easier to maintain laundry wise. White denims act as a great canvas for other colors, textures and even prints. Shades like khakhi, tan, sand and black go really well with the contrast that white bottoms add to the look. 4. Black Jeans © ishabhansali As far as denims go, dark shades go a long way. There's nothing like a black denim to add texture and edge to any casual look. As black is perceived as a going-out shade, black denims switch between casual and party-wear easily. An all-black look is an age old method of pulling this shade off. If you have a particularly fluorescent or primary hued shirt or sweatshirt, team it up with black denims for a fail-safe look. If you're looking to pull off a printed blazer, textured bomber or an tuxedo jacket for a party or business casual look, black denims are your best friend. Pair them up with shades like camel, grey, pastels, primary colors or white for a sure-shot way of looking super fly. Now that you have yourself a fail-safe guide to matching denims, you may thank us.
  23. After a two unexpected defeats which cost the visitors the series, England were finally on top in the 3rd innings of the 3rd Test of their tour to West Indies at St. Lucia. Their captain Joe Root had finally produced a substantial innings, and after coming second in the contest in the West Indies for most of the tour, his team was finally in a position to win something. On the other side, the West Indies, having won their series, and having lost their captain to an over rate related suspension for the final Test, were finding it hard going. They had conceded a three figure lead in the first innings and, as often happens when the batting side is ahead in the game, were finding it difficult to make headway with the ball. It was at this time that the stump microphone caught a stray comment by the England captain. He was heard saying, as all of you probably know by now: Root has since been cast as a knight in shining armour coming to the defense of gay people everywhere. The Barmy Army, Stephen Fry, Nasser Hussain, the former Arsenal and Crystal Palace forward Ian Wright - all England and all cricket (and to be fair, initially, I did this too) heard those 12 words and thought, Root had struck a blow for good in the world (Here's a good summary of reactions compiled by the reporter George Dobell for ESPNCricinfo). Hussain encapsulated this view perfectly in this tweet: Now we know the full exchange. But the more basic problem is, we didn't know it then, and it didn't seem to matter. This bothered me, not because I doubted the obvious meaning of Root's words. Many have asked, why would he say that if what Gabriel said wasn't obviously homophobic? It bothered me because Root was cast as a bystander. And yet, this exchange took place in the middle of a Test match. This is a contest which has an obvious psychological aspect to it. As we now know, Root was making eye contact with Gabriel, smiling at him, basically getting in his face, rubbing in the fact, without having to say a word, that his side was in front in the game and Gabriel was failing to get the better of him. This is all completely fine. The batsman is perfectly within his rights to try and throw the bowler off balance with a comment. In every day life, people are not in a zero-sum contest with each other the way the bowler and the batsman are in the middle of a Test match pitch. The social contract which governs our daily lives is different from the one which governs the sporting contest in Test cricket. We're not trying to defeat other people all the time. We're trying to co-exist - to live as social beings. This effort is harmed by arbitrary prejudices be they based on ethnicity, race, religion, gender or sexuality. Its corrosive when people are cast on the margins because they are different and are powerless to prevent this banishment. These prejudices visit tremendous, and often untold, violence on their targets. The deal in Test cricket is different. There is psychology involved. And Root was a contestant, not a bystander. Gabriel's comment was not homophobic for this reason. And Root's retort was not that of a good samaritan trying to calm things down. It was the comment of a contestant in a rhetorical joust, trying to win. Consider this another way. If you went outside and hit someone on the head with a cricket ball, you'd be charged with assault. In the context of the cricketing context, its not assault, its a perfectly legitimate skill. The standards of everyday life cannot be transplanted into the middle of a Test pitch as seamlessly as they have been Root's champions. Later, in a podcast with Test Match Special, Root said that he did what he thought was right at the time. Now, Test Match Special are very good at live commentary, but as journalists, they are to the English Test team what Pravda was to the Soviet Communist Party. Root is right though. He was in a contest, and undoubtedly won that exchange with Gabriel. So in this sense, he did do what he thought was right at the time. But that's what he was trying to do - win the exchange, play on Gabriel's mind. Its what contestants do. And at the Test level, you get some of the most fierce contestants going. TMS's commentators lauded Root for showing "integrity and leadership" in his response to Gabriel. They said this despite not knowing anything about what Gabriel might have said. In Root's defense, he did try to play things down at the end of the day's play. But even there, the competitor in him could not resist getting a dig in at the opponent first up and milk the moment. Root essentially takes up two contradictory positions. First he casts himself as a bystander intervening to uphold a "responsibility to go about things in a certain manner". But then, he and the English team management played things down, as the Test Match Special producer Adam Mountford reported. So why did the ICC act? The Umpires charged Gabriel with a breach of 2.13 of the ICC Code of Conduct, and Gabriel did not contest the charge. Even so, the West Indies reportedly successfully argued that Gabriel was in contention for the ODI games, and so will serve out a 4 match ODI ban and not a 2 Test ban. Gabriel has not played ODI cricket since 2017. Once the stump microphones caught those words, the ICC basically had no option but to act. The Laws of Cricket govern the cricketing contest. The ICC's Code of Conduct exists to preserve the presentation of the game. As a result, if a player uses a bracelet to express solidarity with civilian victims of conflict, as Moeen Ali attempted to do, the "Clothing and Equipment Regulations" (for instance) can be used to prevent this because the ICC wishes to avoid political controversies. Other similar regulations govern sponsor logos, team crests and the like, because the ICC wishes to avoid commercial controversies. If a player is seen on TV shoving an opponent, or mouthing obscenities at an opponent, this looks bad too. Sponsors don't like it, and the public often doesn't like it either. The Code of Conduct exists to police this behaviour and keep a lid on things. The ICC's Code of Conduct is, at its core, a public relations device. The game itself is governed by its laws. The ICC has essentially managed the PR situation, just as the Code of Conduct was designed to enable it to do. Shannon Gabriel has been handed a ban for four ODIs, a form in which he has not been selected of the West Indies's last 12 ODIs (he last played for them on Boxing Day in 2017). Gabriel has played 11 Tests for West Indies since December 26, 2017. He will be available for their next Test match as well. The struggle against prejudice is not a public relations problem. It has to be taken seriously by people who think carefully about facts and circumstances. It is not served well by the mediocrity evident in the frustrated juggernaut that is the English sports media contingent. "I don't know all of what was said, but Root is right", is not the opinion of someone who is serious about tackling prejudice. It is the opinion of someone who is participating in the business of entertainment and wants to be seen to be tackling prejudice. There are those who understand this but nevertheless think its a force for the good. I'm not convinced that it is. No worthy cause has ever been served well by lazy mediocrity. It was Gabriel's misfortune that Root's comment was caught on the microphone. Gabriel denies that he's homophobic. In fact, assuming his account of the exchange is true, it was the very first thing is said in response to Root's much publicized comment. "I have no issues with that, but you should stop smiling at me." Had the stump microphone caught the full exchange, would Gabriel be handed a ban and a fine? Almost certainly not. Stump microphones should be switched off between deliveries. Voyeurism is not transparency. Entertainment is not scrutiny. These categories matter. They should be taken seriously. In the unfortunate case of Shannon Gabriel, they were not.
  24. Vicky Kaushal is the starboy that Bollywood deserves right now and he is shining brightly following the phenomenal success of 'Uri', which has catapulted him to the league of A-listers in B-town. The actor has already proved his mettle and won the hearts of all the fans. View this post on Instagram ð¬+ð¤¦ð¼‍âï¸= âð½ A post shared by Vicky Kaushal (@vickykaushal09) on Feb 12, 2019 at 5:40am PST Vicky had to undergo his fair share of struggles before making it big in Bollywood. He started his journey by assisting Anurag Kashyap on 'Gangs Of Wasseypur' and worked his way up until people believed that the guy could really act. Not many are aware that Vicky is the son of one of the most famous stunt directors in Bollywood, Shyam Kaushal, but that did not necessarily spell out success for him. His journey has been his personal struggle. In a recent interview, Vicky was asked to read and comment on some of the remarks made by people on social media. While there were many compliments for him, some were plain harsh words. One comment read as follows “He doesn't have hero face...a common punjabi ladka yes but he has filmy background bas utna hi kaafi hai aaj bollywood me." Vicky had a very thoughtful reply to it and said “Okay, so apart from the last line, 'utna hi kaafi hai Bollywood mein,' I think there's nothing wrong in what he said. I don't have a filmy face or a hero face." However, Vicky was not okay with being accused of nepotism and was quick to react to that statement with a justified answer. "Sir, you are most welcome in Bollywood and try and survive a week and we will have a cup of coffee together and I will ask you the same question," he said.
