Lasith Malinga bowls a no ball umpire doesnt see it and RCB

first_imgVirat KohliIANSHe struggled to get going in the first match against Chennai Super Kings, there were question marks over his fitness and form, and when AB de Villiers walked out to bat against Mumbai Indians, the target was stiff. He was dropped by Yuvraj Singh in the slips when he was not even off the mark, but then the man found his groove.After knocking around in the initial few overs, he found his range, he enamoured Chinnaswamy just like the way he has always done in his career so far. Kohli departed, the chase was getting tricky, but de Villiers stuck to his guns. He screamed to his 50, breached 4000 IPL runs and then took down Hardik Pandya in the 18th over.ABD chants reverberated around the ground as he took guard against Jasprit Bumrah. And Bumrah was absolutely brilliant in the 19th over, mixing his lengths and pace and it even bamboozled a marauding de Villiers. The fast bowler got rid of Colin de Grandhomme in the process.Malinga bowled the final over, he defended 17 runs and even though, the final ball was a no ball which was not spotted by the umpire, MI won the match by 6 runs. This is how Twitter responded:Peak IPL #RCBvMI— Gaurav Kalra (@gauravkalra75) March 28, 2019Kohli has started #IPL2019 by losing to teams led by his former captain and current vice captain #RCBvMI— Gaurav Kalra (@gauravkalra75) March 28, 2019Sorry.. but umpires are missing too many no balls these days.. time for another umpire on the ground to call no balls! #fedup— Dean Jones (@ProfDeano) March 28, 2019Brilliant from Bumrah. No bowler in the world like him in the ‘death’— Cricketwallah (@cricketwallah) March 28, 2019Kohli was not pleased after the match and said, “We are playing at the IPL level and not playing club cricket. The umpires should have had their eyes open. That is a ridiculous call at the last ball. If it is a game of margins, I don’t know what is happening.”Drama ? #RCBvMI— Robin John Peterson (@robbie13flair) March 28, 2019Technology should be used much more often in cricket … so many front foot no-balls missed all the time in all formats and only checked on dismissal. Should be as simple as 3rd umpire telling the umpire through ear piece that a no ball has been bowled.— Faf Du Plessis (@faf1307) March 28, 2019Candid post match talk by @ImRo45 with @sanjaymanjrekar on poor umpiring. Can’t have 3rd class umpiring in a high class tournament. Raise your standards umpires!— shishir hattangadi (@shishhattangadi) March 28, 2019Talking about the game, the RCB captain said, “They should have been more sharp and careful out there. When they were 145 for 7, we should have done better. The last few overs were brutal for us. A few more strikes apart from AB could have done the job for us. We need to be smarter at death bowling. Sure they guys will take a lot of learnings from the game. I think the way they bowled, we can learn from their game. The onus is always on each and every member of the team. I got out at a wrong point of time. Shivam was good as well.”The Indian captain also reserved praise for his international teammate Jaspirt Bumrah when he said that the Mumbai Indians pacer is the best bowler in the world at the moment. “I mean Jassi is a top-class bowler. A bit of a mistake from me to take him on at that stage. Mumbai is lucky to have him. And also Malinga. And if Jassi is in good form, it is good for India,” Kohli said.last_img read more

Ayushmann Khurrana to play gay character in Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan who

first_imgAyushmann KhurranaTwitterAyushmann Khurrana, who had two back-to-back hits last year with Andhadhun and Badhaai Ho, has his hands full with projects. The latest news is that the talented actor will star in the second instalment of his 2017 sleeper hit Shubh Mangal Saaavdhan that had Bhumi Pednekar in the female lead.The second instalment in the series is titled Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan and will star another actor, who is yet to be cast. While the first movie from the franchise dealt with the theme of erectile dysfunction, interestingly, the second film will deal with another social taboo that is homosexuality. “The first draft of the script has been locked. This time the makers have decided to bring homosexuality as the main theme in a mainstream Hindi film,” a source told Mumbai Mirror.The source further said that the story revolves around how a conservative small town family comes to terms with the fact that their son is gay. Producer Aanand L Rai confirming the news said: “The Shubh Mangal Saavdhan franchise is our tribute to the churning that keeps our society alive. Every instalment will deal with a topic that touches every person but no one wants to speak about it publicly. Like the first film, this one too will broach a taboo subject with great sensitivity and light humour. I anticipate a lot of conversations and cheer around the second film too.”The movie is expected to go on the floors in the last week of August and the makers are targeting an early 2020 release.Before shooting for Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, Ayushmann will wrap up Bala that features him as a small town guy who is battling premature balding. Bala also features Bhumi Pednekar, Yami Gautam in key roles. Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar in Shubh Mangal Saavdhanlast_img read more

US observers urge steps for free poll in Zimbabwe

first_imgParty delegates listen to Zimbabwe main opposition party Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) president Nelson Chamisa giving his remarks during the launch of his party`s manifesto ahead of the July 30th general election on 7 June 2018 in Harare. Photo: AFPUS pro-democracy groups have urged Zimbabwean authorities to take steps to ensure a free and fair election in July and break from a history of flawed elections under long-time ruler Robert Mugabe.”Changing Zimbabwe’s electoral trajectory will require pro-active and concerted efforts to instil public confidence,” the International Republican Institute and the National Democratic Institute said in a statement late Friday after a week of pre-election observation.Zimbabwe holds a general election on July 30, the first without Mugabe who was forced out of office after a brief military takeover last year.David Dreier, a former United States Congressman and member of the IRI-NDI monitors, told reporters in Harare that while the observers have “found several notable improvements in the political environment and electoral preparations as compared to prior elections, a number of significant opportunities to break with the past have been missed.””As a result, we still have concerns about the fairness of the process.”The group said while Zimbabweans welcome President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s public commitments to hold credible elections there were concerns whether the military will accept the outcome of the presidential polls.They called on senior military officers to make “public and unambiguous statements” that the army will loyally serve whoever wins the elections.The statement came days after the main opposition staged street protests to pressure the authorities to adopt a slew of reforms to ensure a fair poll.The Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) party wants to observe the printing of ballot papers, that Zimbabweans based abroad be allowed to vote and the removal of military personnel seconded to the electoral commission.Mnangagwa will square off with former student activist Nelson Chamisa leading a coalition of opposition parties under the MDC-Alliance.A new pre-poll survey by Afrobarometer published this week showed the ruling Zanu-PF would attract 42 per cent of the vote compared to 31 per cent for the MDC, meaning the election could go to a run-off.last_img
