Everyone's Waiting For 'Endgame' To Cross 'Avatar' But Anthony Russo Doesn't Even Care About It

I don't even have to tell anyone how much freaking money 'Avengers: Endgame' has made until now. Hint - it's a shitload of money. I'm betting Marvel is really happy after killing off Tony Stark. Okay, the exact number as of now is over 2.74 billion freaking dollars - I can't even imagine how much money that is - and it's the second highest-grossing movie of all time.  It is yet to take over 'Avatar' since the James Cameron movie is at 2.78 billion dollars. While the difference is just about $46 million, which is basically nothing comparatively, looks like the Russo Brothers are not worried about being number one on a list right now. At the MTV Movie & TV Awards recently, Anthony Russo was asked about the mere millions of dollars left between the two movies, you know, because millions of dollars mean nothing. He said, “I know it sounds very sensational, but I try not to focus on it because even if we do not cross Avatar, it's like there's no way I will have a shred of regret about anything associated with this movie. So, I refuse to consider it.” Yeah, obviously, there's no regret, what would that even look like? This? Or this? He also went on about how the movie getting appreciated is enough for him. He said, “You see the movie praised, you see the movie celebrated, it's a very special feeling. There are so many people that have worked so long, so hard to sort of bringing this to the screen and do justice to the story.” While it doesn't matter to Anthony Russo about breaking the record, I really want to see James Cameron's reaction if or when 'Avengers: Endgame' knocks 'Avatar' from the top spot. Remember what he posted after 'Endgame' beat 'Titanic'? pic.twitter.com/zfICH1XDCJ — James Cameron (@JimCameron) May 9, 2019 What a guy, such a great sport! I just want to see what he has planned this time.

Desi Twitter Is Having A 'Field' Day Looking At The Chhatrapati Shivaji Artwork On Google Maps

There is no dearth of talent in India and once again, the world got the proof of the same, only this time on Google Maps.  As a tribute to the great warrior king Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, the Maharaj Farm Painting came into existence, and it's one of the most beautiful things we've seen recently.  If you don't believe us, then go to Google Maps and search for Maharaj Farm Painting or Balaji Mandir, Nilanga and you will know what we're talking about.  Spread over six acres across 2.5 lakh sq ft, this beautiful farm painting of Shivaji Maharaj is in Dapka, Latur and was finished in February.  This is an incredible Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj crop art from the Farmers of small village in Nilanga, Latur, Maharashtra. (WA) pic.twitter.com/QG3sSJqed0 — Godman Chikna (@Madan_Chikna) June 18, 2019 This installation is the hard work of artist Mangesh Nipanikar, which is now being appreciated by people across the country. Mangesh planted over 2500 kgs of seeds a week before Shivaji Jayanti, so that it grows green to make the face of the great warrior. He also made a frame around the painting.  Desi Twitter is obviously in love with the creativity of this genius artist and has since flooded the internet with praises for him and his artwork.  à¤à¤¦à¥à¤µà¤¿à¤¤à¥à¤¯ — Sambhaji Chhatrapati (@YuvrajSambhaji) June 19, 2019 Amazing..It must be seen by all the citizens of our country. https://t.co/QaUzI94Vbd — Rishabh Malhotra (@RishabhMtweets) June 19, 2019 Can't resist sharing this! #incredible truly https://t.co/FHJt2YN1c6 — Rasika Athawale (@GoRasika) June 19, 2019 This is masterpiece.

Shikhar Dhawan's World Cup Journey Ends, But Team India's Title Aspirations Remain Intact

For a side that has been busy hammering one opponent after another, the Indian cricket team suffered a blow after Shikhar Dhawan got injured during their clash against Australia at the ongoing ICC World Cup. The Indian opener was initially ruled out for about two to three weeks, but was asked to prove his fitness in a bid to make a comeback in the team. Given his blistering knock of 117 runs which paved the way for India's 36-run triumph over Australia, Dhawan's thumb injury, a hairline fracture, was undoubtedly a cause of concern. His absence would not only leave the opening slot vacant, but will also deny India one of its prolific run-scorers at the top. © Reuters The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), taking note of the situation, decided to fly Rishabh Pant, who was earlier overlooked for the 15-man Team India squad, to England. While Pant is yet to feature in the playing XI, such has been Team India's bench strength that they barely missed Dhawan in their marquee clash against Pakistan at Old Trafford. Moving KL Rahul at the top alongside Rohit Sharma, the Indian team management went for allrounder Vijay Shankar. For someone who struggled to keep his place in the side in the past 10 months, Rahul grabbed the opportunity with both hands, oozing confidence with his sensible knock of 57 runs. Rahul's ascension to the top had also left a void in the middle-order which was adequately filled by Shankar who scored 15 runs and then surprised everyone with his impressive figures of 2-22. Barring, maybe, running between the wickets between Rahul and Rohit, Dhawan's absence, thankfully, didn't really make a difference in India's clinical 89-run win (D/L) over Pakistan. Official Announcement ð¨ð¨ - @SDhawan25 ruled out of the World Cup. We wish him a speedy recovery #TeamIndia #CWC19 pic.twitter.com/jdmEvt52qS — BCCI (@BCCI) June 19, 2019 Thus, on 19th June, when the Indian cricket board announced that Dhawan hasn't recovered well enough to play the World Cup, the news, as sad as it may be for the opening batsman, shouldn't really affect Virat Kohli & Co's title aspirations. With Dhawan getting ruled out, Pant has now been officially announced as his replacement and included in the squad. He will now be eligible for selection in the upcoming games. Dhawan has been India's leading run-getter in the last five ODI tournaments (with more than five teams). He was the top run-scorer for India in the 2013 Champions Trophy, 2014 Asia Cup, 2015 World Cup, 2017 Champions Trophy and 2018 Asia Cup. For someone who seems to thrive on big stages, Dhawan will feel quite unfortunate to be ruled out of the World Cup due to injury.  Mixed feelings about this... — Aishani (@AishaniMishra) June 19, 2019 With three wins and a no-result in four games so far, the Indian cricket team is currently placed at the fourth spot in the table with seven points for their showing in the tournament. The Kohli brigade will now take on Afghanistan on 22nd June in Southampton.

Hrithik & Kangana's Battle Continues As Sunaina Roshan Comes Out In Support Of The Latter

Kangana Ranaut and Hrithik Roshan's battle was one of the most talked-about controversies of 2016. From the former referring him as a 'silly ex' to the latter slapping a legal notice, everything about their case became daily fodder for the news columns. It's been almost three years, but it seems both are still at loggerheads and are not letting bygones be bygones.  In a shocking turn of events, Hrithik's sister Sunaina Roshan took to Twitter and declared that she supports Kangana Ranaut. "I support Kangana all through." She also added, "And living in hell continues....gosh I'm tired." This has only fueled the whole controversy between Kangana and Hrithik.  Here are the tweets: I support Kangana all through — Sunaina Roshan (@sunainaRoshan22) June 18, 2019 And living in hell continues ....gosh I'm tired — Sunaina Roshan (@sunainaRoshan22) June 18, 2019 Then came the cascade of tweets by Kangana's sister Rangoli, supporting Sunaina.  When a user on Twitter pointed out that Sunaina should be approaching the police or seek another friend's help, Rangoli replied, “I agree, but Kangana was so distressed after so many calls from Sunaina, Roshans are capable of harming Kangana but this time around I am very careful I myself also spoke to Sunaina, I have kept all the messages and recordings, Sunaina is in trouble for sure.” Check out the tweets here:  Sunaina Roshan is asking Kangana for help, her family is physically assaulting her because she is in love with a Muslim man from Delhi, last week they got a lady cop who slapped her, her father also hit her, her brother is trying to put her behind bars..(contd) — Rangoli Chandel (@Rangoli_A) June 19, 2019 (Contd).... I fear her dangerous family might harm her, we want to make this public because Sunaina calling Kangana and crying all the time, Kangana doesn't know how to help her...(contd) — Rangoli Chandel (@Rangoli_A) June 19, 2019 (Contd).... so now she has blocked her number but we fear for her safety, everyone has a right to love whoever they want, hopefully this will scare Roshans and they back off ð — Rangoli Chandel (@Rangoli_A) June 19, 2019 I agree, but Kangana was so distressed after so many calls from Sunaina, Roshans are capable of harming Kangana but this time around I am very careful I myself also spoke to Sunaina, I have kept all the messages and recordings, Sunaina is in trouble for sure...(contd) https://t.co/KJ6Kl6WCss — Rangoli Chandel (@Rangoli_A) June 19, 2019 (contd)...and  asking Kangana for help but her father and brother mustn't harm Kangana I have her back but at the same time it's my moral duty to help Sunaina also present these facts to the world on Suniana's request, so Roshans know they are being watched now ð — Rangoli Chandel (@Rangoli_A) June 19, 2019 In a new development, Rakesh Roshan's nephew Eshaan Roshan has come out in support of Hrithik. He wrote, “It's sad to see how people can stoop this low as to use a vulnerable period of the family for their own ends. Even if there is a family crisis, Didi has the law and order machinery of this country for her.” He also added, “Why are these sisters obsessed with this family? My bade papa is undergoing a health crisis, Didi is vulnerable. It's a very sensitive period for our family. I request these people to be sensitive and not act as vultures.”  Check out his tweets: It's sad to see how people can stoop this low as to use a vulnerable period of the family for their own ends.  Even if there is a family crisis, Didi has the law and order machinery of this country for her. — Eshaan Roshan (@RoshanEshaan) June 19, 2019 Why are these sisters obsessed with this family ? My bade papa is undergoing a health crisis, Didi is vulnerable. It's a very sensitive period for our family.I request these people to be sensitive and not act as vultures. — Eshaan Roshan (@RoshanEshaan) June 19, 2019 We wonder if this mess will ever see its end.

Vadodara Police Goes Beyond Its Call Of Duty To Drive Children To School After Van-Auto Strike

Police. Cops. Thulla. No matter which name we use for them, it's a fact that they always fill our hearts with a sense of dread and foreboding. No one can really tell us why that is, but it is very rare for someone to get overly excited at the mention of police (unless of course you are in need of their services on certain occasions). © Twitter But at the same time, why is it that we forget that they are very much like any of us? With families and friends, hobbies and dreams of their own just like all of us? We have this preconceived notion about them that makes them seem almost non-human, devoid of feelings and emotions. We think of them as just a large network of people whose vested interests lies in fending for themselves and living on all the bribes they can get their hands on. © Twitter But guess what, we just got trolled big time by the Vadodara Police, because they destroyed all our presumptions and misconceptions related to the police force utterly and completely. Here's how. Vadodara residents are currently facing an unusual situation wherein school vans and auto-rickshaws have gone on indefinite strike following a crackdown by the Road Transport Office and Vadodara traffic police for flouting safety norms. © Twitter This put parents and children in a spot, as they are troubled about their commutation to and fro from school. However, the Vadodara Police has come to the rescue of the public and they were seen helping students reach school by ferrying them in PCR vans and motorcycles. Vadodara police provided 46 motorcycles, 21 PCR cans and 9 Boleros to help over 250 students reach school without any inconvenience today morning. © Twitter © Twitter If that doesn't count as a very thoughtful and honourable act on the part of our police force, we don't know what should. Kudos to these selfless officers who are going out of their call of duty to help the citizens.

Pakistani Fan Files Petition Seeking A Ban On Sarfaraz Ahmed & Co After Loss To India

The clashes of India and Pakistan on the cricket field are bound to generate public interest, but when the two neighbouring countries lock horns at the ICC World Cup, the excitement tends to reach an all-time high. As anticipated, the much-awaited fixture at the ongoing ICC spectacle had everyone glued to the cricketing action which unfolded at Old Trafford in Manchester. But, the match, sadly, failed to live up to the billing as India defeated Pakistan by a comprehensive margin of 89 runs (D/L). In a game, where Pakistan was expected to challenge India's domination especially after their 2017 Champions Trophy win, Sarfaraz Ahmed's men were overshadowed in almost all the departments by a rampant Virat Kohli brigade. Aww
THE LEGEND MOMIN SAQIB ð#CWC19 #INDvPAK pic.twitter.com/QfCwXA8aCo — Squirrel_Of_RÉmð©ð®ð³ (@Squirrel_Soul) June 17, 2019 After the game, while the Indian fans had a lot of cheer for, Pakistan loyalists were so embarrassed by their team's performance that they began criticising them heavily. While some slammed Sarfaraz for yawning behind the stumps, others questioned the fitness of Pakistani cricketers.  Though it's been three days since Pakistan's forgettable outing, the criticism doesn't seem to stop anytime soon. In a more recent case, dejected Pakistani fan has filed a petition in the Gujranwala Civil Court against Sarfaraz & co, seeking a ban on the squad as well as the sacking of the selection committee. © Reuters As per SAMAA news channel, the petitioner, whose name was not revealed, has called for a ban on the cricket team while also demanding chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq-led selection committee to be dissolved. In response to the petition, the judge at the Gujranwala Civil Court in Punjab province has reportedly summoned officials of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).  Meanwhile, Geo News also reported that the PCB's Governing Board is expected to decide on major changes to the team's management during its meeting scheduled for 19th June in Lahore. The PCB will be looking to let go of several members of the management including coaches and selectors, the report from London quoted informed sources as saying. © Reuters It has been reported that among those expected to be sent packing is coach Mickey Arthur, whose contract will not be renewed by the PCB. Team manager Talat Ali, bowling coach Azhar Mahmood and the entire selection committee can also be dismissed. Managing Director of PCB Wasim Khan has cut short his foreign visit and will be attending the Governing Board meeting in Lahore today.  With just one win in five games, the Pakistan cricket team currently finds itself languishing at the lowly ninth spot, just above Afghanistan, with just three points to their name. They will take on South Africa in their next match on 23rd June in London.

Kawhi Leonard & Toronto Raptors Stop Golden State Warriors' 3-Peat To Win Their First NBA Title

After being the dominating force of the National Basketball League (NBA) for more than four years, it seems as if the reign of the Golden State Warriors has finally come to an end at the hands of one of the best two-way players of the league in Kawhi Leonard and a feisty Toronto Raptors team who not only made their first appearance in the NBA Finals this season but also won their maiden title along with it.  YOUR 2019 @NBA CHAMPS! #WeTheNorth pic.twitter.com/3mNvchZqzT — Toronto Raptors (@Raptors) June 14, 2019 Albeit the Warriors were cursed with extremely unfortunate injuries, taking out some of their best players in Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson at the worst moments possible but this should not take away from the fact that a team like the Raptors who were always considered to be 'good but not good enough', defeated some of the most talented rosters in the league such as the Philadelphia 76ers and the Milwuakke Bucks during the playoffs series and the Warriors in the NBA Finals.  While role-players like Fred VanVleet and Pascal Siakam showed up big time, especially in crunch time, when they were needed the most, the contributions of Kawhi Leonard demand a special mention.  Board man gets champagne! pic.twitter.com/YvlnleQOW9 — Toronto Raptors (@Raptors) June 14, 2019 Traded to the Canadian squad less than a year ago, that too during the time he was down and away with a severe ankle injury, Leonard was not only able to understand how the team functioned but also became their beacon of hope, the leader they desperately needed to make it to the Finals and win it all.  After facing toxic levels of criticism from the San Antonio Spurs fans for not representing the city on the court for an entire year, 'The Klaw' winning the title and the 2019 'NBA Finals Most Valuable Player' award was probably the best way for him to redeem himself and consolidate his name as one of the best athletes the league and the basketball world has ever seen.  KAWHI LEONARD 2X FINALS MVP!  #WeTheNorth pic.twitter.com/dabEfjSRsb — Toronto Raptors (@Raptors) June 14, 2019 This is also not for the first time Leonard has stopped a dynasty from winning three consecutive championship titles or as they say a 3peat. Winning his very first NBA title in 2014 against the powerful Miami Heat which consisted of star players like Dwyane Wade, Chrish Bosh and Lebron James, all in their prime, Leonard won his first NBA Finals MVP back then.  Now again, heading into the 2019 Finals Leonard shocked the Warriors and the world when he led his side to winning all three games in the Warriors' homecourt and sealing the deal with a couple of free throws in the final moments of Game 6 in Oakland. Nobody could have written the narrative of the Toronto Raptors' first title any better than this.

Huawei Phones Have Started Showing Ads On The Lock Screen And Users Are Not Happy

Advertisements have become a common sight on the internet. After all, they contribute a majority of the Internet's revenue. Every website, app, or service relies on them to make money. Though, many have observed companies getting too greedy about earning and bombarding the users with intrusive or disturbing ads. We've all come across auto-playing video ads that not only suck bandwidth in the background but are also annoying since they pop-up instantaneously. When users get irritated about ads on their browser, it's fair to assume they'll be furious if ads start creeping out in the mobile UI as well. © MensXP A large number of Huawei users have reported seeing advertisements (especially about Booking.com) on their phone's lock screen. So far, users with the P30 Pro, P20, P20 Lite, and P20 Pro, and Honor 10 have confirmed visibility of ads. They're appearing for device owners who are using the preinstalled landscape background wallpapers. Huawei's sister-brand Honor was quick to confirm on Twitter that the company isn't serving these ads. Huawei says the ads are being delivered by third-party services or apps. What's fishy is, the ads are visible on Huawei's factory installed Magazine cycle of wallpapers. We assume the company relies on a third-party to serve these wallpapers, and they've pushed forward a promotional wallpaper without Huawei's consent. © Twitter According to a Reddit thread, four images about Booking.com were added in the wallpaper rotation. You can delete the particular wallpaper, but there's a possibility the service can push more promotional content in the future, and you'll have to manually remove it each time. Obviously, the best and safest way to avoid these ads is by not relying on Huawei's wallpaper app. There are a lot of options available on the Play Store. Last year, a similar issue had been found on Samsung phones as well. © MensXP Xiaomi's MIUI is infamous for pushing ads in the UI. It does so officially and the users are aware of what they're buying into. Even then, users have been complaining about rising ads within the phone's skin and some reports have also pointed towards "vulgar" ads being served. For Huawei, the timing couldn't get any worse. The company has been blacklisted from doing business in/with American markets and this means future phones will not be able to use Google's Play Service. On a more micro level, even basic resources like ARM's chipset architecture is now out of reach. Via DigitalTrends

Vicky Kaushal's Reply To A Fan On Twitter Is Just Why He Is Quickly Becoming Young India's Fave

The year was 2018, when suddenly this one rugged looking man, with a chiselled face and olive skin, started grabbing eyeballs every time he graced the screens. It was more than his looks though (well quite honestly, his simple features and boy-next-door vibes did wonders too), people were intrigued by this actor who was seen portraying different characters each time, each distinct, and better than the last. © Twitter Vicky Kaushal was finally here, and what an entry it had been. Women swooned over the chivalrous Iqbal Syed in 'Raazi', while others sought friends like Kamlesh in 'Sanju' and a lover as fun and easy-going as Vicky in 'Manmarziyaan'. However, it is 2019 that witnessed Vicky Kaushal's greatest arrival and how! Vicky's 'Uri' broke multiple industry records and put him right at the top in Bollywood. © Twitter He is currently one of the busiest and most sought after stars in the Hindi film industry and there's no guessing why. Directors love him, but his fans are absolute nuts over this guy. © Reuters Yet, all this success, popularity and fame hasn't gotten into his head one bit. And fans love him for being so rooted and humble at all times. Take, for instance, this recent Twitter exchange between Vicky and one of his fans. © Twitter The fan tweeted, saying: @vickykaushal09 my wifey saw you today in the jam jam cafe, was sitting next to your table but too shy to come up and talk. And thought that privacy should be given to the stars. I am saying hi ð on her behalf and we really love your acting.

Frustrated With England's Bad Weather, Kedar Jadhav Asks The Rains To Go To Maharashtra

The ICC World Cup 2019 has come to bit of a halt in the birthplace of cricket as the rain showers have decided to take over the tournament and ruin it for everybody from players to match officials to the fans.  In the past four days, the viewers of the Cricket World Cup have only been able to enjoy less than a game and a half in total with some of the exciting contests being washed away, thanks to the non-stop downpour in the English cities of Hampshire, Bristol and Nottingham, one such matchup being between the two unbeaten teams of this year's tournament in India and New Zealand on 13th June 2019, Thursday.  Ardent fans of both sides only got to their favourite cricketers in casuals rather than their formal jerseys and that too only when one of two players popped out of the dressing room to check the weather conditions before disappearing behind a door.  © Reuters However, Indian bowling all-rounder, Kedar Jadhav did contribute towards the day by coming out of the dressing room and sending out a video message that has been making the rounds on social media ever since the covers were put on the field.  Haha Kedar Jadhav asking rains from England to shift to Maharashtra ðâ¤ï¸ #INDvNZ #CWC19 pic.twitter.com/ZcdoKcypkT — Saurabh (@Boomrah_) June 13, 2019 In the video, the 34-year-old can be clearly seen begging the evil Nottingham rains to move away from the city and instead move to his home state of Maharashtra, which is currently facing immense drought conditions with only 7 percent of water left for consumption that has affected the lives of the locals living there.  Jadhav was not only applauded for his quick wit but also the fact that he remembered the struggles of his people back home even though he is thousands of miles away.

India Is Planning To Launch Its Own Space Station By 2030 Without Any Help From Other Countries

The International Space Station, as we all know, is currently the only fully functional space station in the Earth's lower orbit. It's the result of a partnership between European countries represented by the European Space Agency the United States, Japan, Canada, and Russia. Well, looks like there's going to be another space station by the year 2030 and it's going to be launched by none other than India. The same has been confirmed by the ISRO chief K Sivan during a press conference where he also talked a bit more about the project. © Reuters He made it a point to inform that India will not be joining the International Space Station (ISS) and launch its own space station, which will be an extension of the Gaganyaan project. “We have to sustain the Gaganyaan programme. So, subsequently, as a long-term plan, we are planning to have the space station in India. We are going to join the international community in manned missions to the moon, asteroids. We have a clear plan for the space programme,” Sivan said. The proposed space station will likely weigh 20 tonnes and it's said to be used for conducting microgravity experiments. India is targetting 2030 as the date to launch the space station and the preliminary plan is for the space station is to accommodate astronauts for up to 15-20 days in space. We still don't have a lot of details, but we hope to learn more after the completion of Gaganyaan mission. © Reuters As for the Gaganyaan mission, the government is said to have cleared a budget of Rs. 10,000 crore. It looks like there will be two flights from Sriharikota before the maiden flight with crew takes of sometime in 2022. ISRO's complete focus right now is on India's second moon mission, Chandrayan -2. It will take off on July 15 and will attempt to land near the South Pole of the Moon, which has remained an uncharted territory so far. You can learn more about the Chandrayan-2 mission right here.

IND Vs NZ: How An Abandoned Match Can Affect Virat Kohli & Co's World Cup Campaign

The twelfth edition of the ICC World Cup in England & Wales has already started to frustrate participating fans and teams - all because of persistent rain and poor weather conditions. While the quadrennial event has enthralled us with memorable moments this year, its rain-hit ties has equally left everyone annoyed.

As many as four games have already been affected by rain wherein two have been abandoned, one led to no result and another was concluded via Duckworth-Lewis (D/L) method. But, it seems there's no stopping to rain disruptions in the ongoing World Cup anytime soon.

In yet another frustrating day for both the teams and fans, persistent rain at Trent Bridge in Nottingham, first, delayed the start of India's much-anticipated clash against New Zealand and, then, forced it to be abandoned. In a match that pitted two unbeaten sides in the tournament, India and New Zealand, despite their bid to secure two crucial points, had to eventually settle for one apiece. While the Kiwis remain at the top of the table with seven points, the Indian side climbed to the third, behind Australia (six points) with five points in their kitty. Reuters In a single-group format, akin to the 1992 edition, losing key points, due to rain, could have drastic implications on a title aspirations of the participating nations. And, while rain-hit ties can dent the chances for some of the strongest sides, it can equally prove to be a blessing in disguise for the weaker ones.

For instance, take a look at Sri Lanka. Arguably one of the weakest sides in the tournament, the Lankans were humbled by the Kiwis comprehensively in their opening match. Having lost two points early on, the Lankans found themselves in a spot of bother after Afghanistan bowled them out for 201 runs. But, a rain disruption worked to their advantage and a revised target of 187 runs in 41 overs (D/L) proved a tad too difficult for the Afghans.

After recording their first points in the tournament, the Lankans were surely not the favourites to come out on top against Pakistan. But, again, poor weather conditions came to their rescue and handed them a key point as the match got abandoned without a single ball being bowled. The story of their fourth match was pretty much the same against Bangladesh as heavy rainfall saw another game getting abandoned. Reuters Though some might argue that the Lankans could have defeated Bangladesh in their last match. But, the fact that the Tigers had earlier defeated the mighty South Africans should somewhat tilt tie in their favour, if not completely. So, in four matches so far, where the Lankans would've probably garnered two points (giving Bangladesh the benefit of doubt), rain disruptions have allowed them to secure four.

Now, coming back to India's clash against New Zealand. Given the fact that the 'Men in Blue' have secured wins in as many matches, the rain washout shouldn't really have a major implication on their World Cup title dreams. They already have four points in their kitty and sharing a point with the Kiwis will now make it five with six games still to go.

In the coming days, India will be seen locking horns with Pakistan (16th June), Afghanistan (22nd June), West Indies (27th June), England (30th June), Bangladesh (2nd July) and Sri Lanka (6th July). Out of their remaining six matches, India, given their form, probably need to just worry about England. Reuters While the likes of Pakistan and West Indies cannot be taken lightly, we reckon, the two teams will find Team India too hot to handle in their upcoming fixtures. In the other ties, India should easily see off the likes of Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. Expecting them to lose to England (quite an ask for the hosts though), India should secure 10 points from their remaining six games - which should be good enough to propel them into the knockouts.

On the other hand, the weather predictions for India's next six matches paint a different picture altogether. Their clash against Pakistan at Old Trafford in Manchester is expected to get disrupted by some showers. The weather prediction for their clash against Afghanistan at Rose Bowl, Southampton is cloudy, with some showers. Reuters Their tie against the Windies at Old Trafford, Manchester might see a rare afternoon shower. Thankfully, there are showers expected during India's much-anticipated match against England at Edgbaston, Birmingham as the weather predicted is sunny and a bit cloudy. The clash against Bangladesh might witness a shower or thunderstorm in the afternoon in an otherwise cloudy day. And, India's final group match against Sri Lanka at Headingley, Leeds is expected to be a bit cloudy, with some showers predicted later in the day.

Well, we can all have our permutations and combinations, but what eventually will unfold in India's remaining group games cannot possibly be predicted - neither on the basis of weather predictions, nor in terms of anyone's past performances. Sadly, just like Virat Kohli & co, we all have to wait and watch while keeping our fingers crossed.

8 Best Scenes Of Captain America That Prove No One Is Better Than Chris Evans

It's the best Chris in Hollywood's birthday, yay! What can I say about Chris Evans? He's a great actor, he's a great person, he's literally a golden retriever in human form. This near-perfect human being turned 38 today and we obviously need to celebrate him, and what better way than to look back at all of his best scenes from the MCU? Let's be real, he can do whatever role he wants, but he will always be Captain America (sorry, Anthony Mackie but that's what you get for a boring Black Mirror episode).  As Cap, he's given us many incredible movies with unforgettable dialogues and scenes. While every scene with him is great, of course, I have listed out the best, most memorable scenes. Enjoy! Also, happy birthday, Cap! 1. The best Cap scene ever/ Hammer Time This scene, this freaking scene, is hands down the best MCU moment for me. I can watch it a hundred times and still be as excited as the first time. Such a crucial moment, Thanos is overpowering Thor and will probably kill him, but wait, in comes Cap to show he's worthy. Nothing can top this. 2. Cap vs Cap Another great 'Endgame' scene that we didn't know he needed until it actually happened. From “I can do this all day” “yeah, I know, I know” to “Bucky is alive” to “this IS America's ass”, the whole Cap vs Cap fight scene was perfect, nothing can make it better. 3. “There's only one God” What a dialogue, what a way to introduce Thor in 'The Avengers', and Steve being Steve and jumping out of planes. Also, him calling Natasha 'ma'am' proving he really is from the 40s. 4. When he blocks Thor's hammer Well, now we know how and why he could do this. He's also so worthy! Also, the moment Thor realizes they're not some random people. 5. Lift scene(s) A great scene from an overall great movie. The 'lift scene' is so memorable, it's so well done. Anyone should be afraid of getting into a lift with Chris Evans - or make fun of it - but either way, it's still one of the best MCU scenes till date and that's why there was a callback to that in 'Endgame' as well. Cap saying 'Hail Hydra' will never not be funny to me. 6. Cap is strong, like very very strong If you were not even a little turned on by Chris Evans' muscles and strength in this scene, then you're not human and you're also lying. The guy is so freaking strong, he literally could stop a fucking helicopter from flying. Strongest Avenger right here, people. Hulk who? 7. Nomad Cap! You cannot tell me that Cap's entry in 'Infinity War' wasn't one of the best scenes in a movie filled with incredible scenes. To be honest, it was the perfect way to introduce the newest Avenger - Captain America's cool new beard (and no I'm not talking about Peggy or Sharon). 8. AVENGERS…assemble Well, we started with 'Endgame' and we'll end with 'Endgame', obviously. This might not be a long scene but it's a damn powerful one. Everyone who got dusted is back - which again was a visual treat in itself - but when Cap comes in front and does what he does best - lead - it was just great to watch.  Also, it was the last time these Avengers will ever assemble and the added emotional aspect makes it an unforgettable scene from the entire MCU.
