Not Players But Umpires Had The Most Difficult Job During The U19 World Cup Final

The India versus Bangladesh U19 World Cup final turned out to be a lot more than just another 50-over match between two Asian countries for the most glorious recognition an Under-19 team could manage to win. After the weather gave the players and fans of the two teams a good scare as it rained for two days continuously at the Senwes Park, Potchefstroom, the match commenced with a low-scoring start by the Indian openers, Yashasvi Jaiswal and Divyaansh Saxena. However, things soon took a turn for the worse when the Bangladeshi bowling attack began to irk Priyam Gargâs batsmen with some cheeky trash talking in between overs and after almost every other delivery. Watch: Shoriful Islamâs Inappropriate Send-Off for Yashasvi Jaiswal Cricket world has witnessed the famous celebration of Kesrick Williamson and Sheldon Cottrell after taking the wickets of rivals. Well, there is a new star who has come up with a uniqu... https://t.co/OVLk7aGtCG pic.twitter.com/EbQM2D8QKj â HAFEEZ PARDESI (@VOICE_2U) February 9, 2020 The situation began to heat up and even though Jaiswal tried his best to stay calm under the immense pressure, India kept losing wickets on the other side. The Young Tigersâ plan to keep up with the sledging alongside some excellent show with the ball finally worked as the Boys in Blue were wrapped up at a minimal score of 177. Despite a lot of ups and downs in the second half of the match and the rains disrupting the match for a bit as well, the Bangladesh batting order behind and heroic knock of Parvez Hossain Emon and skipper Akhbar Ali, was able to take home their maiden U19 trophy. Bangladesh lift the ICC U19 World Cup trophy for the first time!#U19CWC | #INDvBAN | #FutureStars pic.twitter.com/h9Ol7Btdha â Cricket World Cup (@cricketworldcup) February 9, 2020 And even though it was one of the biggest matches of the young careers of all the players present on the field, it was the officials who arguably had the most difficult job throughout the day. On-field umpires Sam Nogajski and Adrian Holdstock found themselves to be babysitting the players from both sides with the hopes of maintaining the spirit of the game. While bowlers like Shoriful Islam and Ravi Bishnoi forgot about the gameâs âbeing gentleâ part and abused the batsmen on strike throughout their spells, the officials had to keep their calm and deal with them politely, given the gravity of the situation. Character separates the big -match player and just a player.Ravi Bishnoi pic.twitter.com/3UNmITofpM â Anish dalavi (@Anishdalavi14) February 9, 2020 Then there were times when the Indian skipper put Jaiswal and Saxena at silly point and short leg, who kept ganging up on the batsmen and tried to intimidate them. Holdstock had to ask them not to do that, with a gentle smile on his face. #INDvBAN Wow ..few minutes ago pressure was on india and now silly point and short leg!! well done #bishnoi ð®ð³.. #U19WorldCup #U19CWCFinal â INCOGNITO (@analonda69) February 9, 2020 The pressure of staying focused and look for the minutest of details during all the appeals India made during the second innings, especially during Bishnoiâs overs was also something they had to deal with for over three hours as well. As far as the third umpire, Ravindra Wimalasiri is concerned, he found himself to be in a unique predicament when he did not have to decide IF a batsman was out but WHO was out.  Late during Indiaâs batting innings, the on-field umpires sent a decision upstairs to Wimalasiri to see who amongst Dhruv Jurel and Atharva Ankolekar was out as both of them ran towards the same side of the pitch and crossed the crease almost at the same time. Contrary to the commentatorsâ opinion, the third umpire announced that it was Jurel who had to head towards the pavilion. Atharva Ankolekar and Dhruv Jurel run out was a bizarre incident in Cricket history ever in ICC U19 World Cup 2020. #DhruvJurel #AtharvaAnkolekar #U19WC #U19WorldCup #U19WorldCup2020 pic.twitter.com/3uWrkDQLfn â Vikash Gaur (@thevikashgaur) February 9, 2020 As if all of this was not enough, the evening ended on a rather shameful note when a couple of players from either side got in a physical altercation and started pushing and shoving each other only to be separated by the officials. If you were a spectator, youâd think that the umpires were trying to get involved in everything and were micromanaging them instead of letting the boys play their game, but in retrospect I have some new found respect for the way they managed things on the field while maintaining the flow of the game.

4 Things To Know About Bill Gates' New Rs 4,600 Cr Superyacht With An Infinity Pool, Spa & More

Bill Gates is no longer the world's richest man. He's currently ranked the worldâs second-richest man with a $118 billion fortune. That, in case you can't figure out, is still a ton of money, plenty to afford a luxury Superyacht. Bill Gates, 64, is just an ordinary holidaymaker who has not previously owned a yacht. He used to rent them out whenever he wanted to get a breath of fresh air on the sea. But he now decided to invest in a one-of-a-kind Yacht that's worth more any of us can even imagine.

Here are a few things to know about Bill Gates' new purchase, the Aqua Ship -

Liquid Hydrogen As Fuel

The Aqua ship is fitted with two 28-tonne vacuum-sealed tanks that are cooled to extremely cold temperatures. We're talking temperatures around -423F (-253C) and filled with liquid hydrogen. It's the only fuel that's used to power the ship. © Sinot In case you don't know, the emissions from the industry and transport make up for over 75-percent of the world's carbon footprint and it's highly important that we extend any help to bring down that number. Bill Gates is just doing his part, which often involves a lot of money. This, by the way, isn't the only investment he's made on his quest to find alternative fuels. He is also an investor in Heliogen, a startup that aims to turn sunlight into a fossil furl replacement. It's the first company in the world to concentrate sunlight to reach temperatures that are high enough to power heavy machinery without carbon emissions.

Pricing & Availability

The Aqua ship is truly one of the luxurious transport that I've ever seen. It's both beautiful and functional at the same time, with hardly anything to complain about. Speaking about the yacht, the marine designer Sander Sinot said, "For the development of Aqua we took inspiration from the lifestyle of a discerning, forward-looking owner, the fluid versatility of water and cutting-edge technology, to combine this in a superyacht with truly innovative features."

Aqua isn't expected to hit the shores until 2024 and Bill Gates is the first one to order the vessel that's estimated to cost a whopping $644m i.e roughly Rs 4,600 crores. Well, Bill Gates used to rent out Yachts worth $300m, so if anything this is only going to save him money in the long run. Oh, and it's cheaper what India is spending on the custom jets for the President and the PM. Just saying. Check out the Aqua here.

8 Best Dressed Men From The Oscars 2020 Who Were Definite Head-Turners On The Red Carpet

The 92nd Academy Awards took place in Los Angeles with people involved in the making of films from scratch, and stepping out on the red carpet at the city's Dolby Theatre.

While the red carpet is a space where you can spot your favourite actors and directors, it's also quickly evolving into a platform where people can express their emotions and identities. In the case of Spike Lee, he paid homage to Kobe with a blazer that was inspired by Kobe's Lakers jersey. Joaquin Phoenix has been wearing the same Stella McCartney suit to most red carpets including this one and Billy Porter wore a gown inspired by the Kensington Palace to the Awards.

But the red carpet is also popular for classic tailoring that is exemplified through the fine suits that we see on actors each year. While this year's nominees including Joker's Joaquin Phoenix, Marriage Story's Adam Driver and Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood's Brad Pitt and Little Women's Timothee Chalamet, it was their outfits on the red carpet that made an impact.

Although the Oscars have a reputation for playing it safe and keeping things formal, some of these year's best-dressed guys really switched things up.

1. Mahershala Ali and Amatus Sami-Karim
© Gettyimages Ali wore an Ermenegildo Zegna XXX and an Omega watch.

2. Rami Malek
© Gettyimages Rami wore a Saint Laurent and Cartier.

3. Brad Pitt © Gettyimages Brad Pitt who also won his first acting Oscar this year, wore a classic tuxedo with a black bow tie.

4. Leonardo DiCaprio © Gettyimages Leonardo too kept it simple like his co-star Brad Pitt from Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood with a plain tuxedo.

5. Joaquin Phoenix © Gettyimages Joaquin Phoenix has vowed to use a single blazer for the entire Award season, for that he's chosen a classic black Stella McCartney.

6. Timothée Chalamet © Gettyimages There were rumours that Timothée Chalamet was going to wear a backless shirt this time at the Oscars. Instead, he was seen wearing what looked like avant-garde track pants with a Cartier brooch to complete the look.

7. Adam Driver and Joanne Tucker © Gettyimages Adam Driver chose a fine Burberry suit for the occasion.

8. Billy Porter © Gettyimages Billy Porter, true to what has now become a Billy Porter red carpet tradition, was seen wearing Giles Deacon.

Samsung Surprised Us With A Galaxy Z Flip Ad During Oscars Revealing Key Details Before The Launch

The South Korean movie Parasite made history at Oscar this year by winning a bunch of awards across different categories. But there's another name from South Korea that surprised us all with an appearance. That's Samsung. Yes, Samsung decided to make a splash during the Academy Awards by letting the cat out of the bag and reveal the Galaxy Z Flip . In the name of a 'teaser', the company basically showed off the entire phone. I mean, it's not something that's unheard of since we already know pretty much everything about it by now. Before I talk about the phone itself, here, check out the ad -
Samsung just showed off the entire Z Flip during its Oscars ad. Small print says screen crease is normal, heh pic.twitter.com/uBesJ0FonT â nilay patel (@reckless) February 10, 2020So we can see the phone rested on the table at a 90-degree angle on its own. That's also something that we knew about the phone from one of the leaks in the past. Looks like it'll help with calling or taking better selfies. It's also worth making a note that the phone doesn't appear to fold completely flat. It's not entirely a deal-breaker, but Motorola's Razr phone does fold completely flat and looks slick. There's also a small print on the ad that reads, "You may notice a small crease in the center of the main screen, which is a natural characteristic of the screen." This is similar to what we saw with the original Galaxy Fold. © Samsung We also got our first look at the outside screen. Unlike the one on the Galaxy Fold, the outside screen on the Galaxy Z Flip looks super small. However, it's a colour screen and so far we know that it'll let you accept or reject calls without having to fully flip open the phone.
And that's pretty much everything we learned about the phone from its Oscars ad. Samsung always goes huge when it comes to its Oscars ads, but this year they decided to go easy and just release a product video. It works out great for them because the phone itself is ready to debut alongside the Galaxy S20 series in just a couple of days. But yes, we were indeed a little surprised to see Samsung showing off an unreleased phone during an Academy Awards commercial. Between Samsung and the movie Parasite, it's safe to say that the South Koreans are all over the news after the Oscars.

Joaquin Phoenix�s Oscar-Winning Speech Made Fans Emotional & We Respect Him Even More Now

Joaquin Phoenix created history at the 92nd Academy Awards as his win for the âbest Oscarâ is not a mere win for an actor who truly deserved it but itâs a win for an entire planet of fans who believed in a man and rooted for him with all their heart. It is similar to a prayer being chanted and being put out in the universe and the universe answering it back for all of us. So yes, ladies and gentleman, our Joker took one for the team and beautifully accepted the Oscar for his par excellence job in that movie that will go down in History.  this speech from Joaquin Phoenix ð»ð»ð»ð» #Oscars pic.twitter.com/9GJqfeUapw â Stefanieâ· (@StefanieBe_) February 10, 2020 As if winning hearts and wowing our brains out was not enough for this mad genius,  he went ahead and gave a speech that just left people on the internet amazed. The rawness, the honesty and the anguish in his tone where he talks about the disconnect in the world, for being a scoundrel in life himself, everything about this profound speech catches up with you. He ended the speech with a beautiful line written by his late brother when he was 17 that reads as âwhen you run to the rescue with love, peace followsâ. The room was filled with thunderous applause but for everyone who wasnât there, social media became an echoing ground of emotions for fans like us. That was a brave speech straight from Joaquin Phoenixâs heart. Thank you, Joaquin. #TheOscars â Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) February 10, 2020 I just watched Joaquin Phoenixâs acceptance speech. I must say that I truly appreciated it. No politics; no virtue signalling; no platitudes. A simple call for compassion toward one another and to our animal cousins. Newfound respect for this great actor. He proved me wrong! â Gad Saad (@GadSaad) February 10, 2020 Fans are shook that how can a brilliant actor be so beautiful from the inside and talk about things which we have forgotten about. That speech was beautiful, Joaquin. One of the most important moments of his career and he refuses to make it all about himself. How are you selfless AND the best actor of all time? Zero head weight. He deserved this more than anyone else. #Oscars #Joker pic.twitter.com/ILtCVhmF7S â Joaquin Phoenix's Oscar (@LDR_______) February 10, 2020
Another beautiful speech from Joaquin Phoenix. Someone said he was rambling but I donât think so at all. It made sense to me, and you could tell he meant every word of it. Using that platform to inspire and snap us back to reality. #Oscars â Brad Walsh (@BradWalsh) February 10, 2020
Joaquin Phoenix for President!! That speech was amazing! I hope he doesnât get shit for it (and Iâm so glad he won) #JoaquinPhoenixforPresident â Mike Portnoy (@MikePortnoy) February 10, 2020 Well today is a good day and we have Joaquin to thank for a major part of it!

Bong Joon-Ho, 'Parasite' Cast Make History With 4 Oscar Wins, While The World Celebrates On Twitter

We all had our doubts that it would happen, but in a grand upset thatâs shocked and delighted movie fans from across the world, the impossible has happened - Bong Joon-Hoâs Korean masterpiece Parasite has dominated at the Oscars with a stunning four wins, bagging the awards for âBest Original Screenplayâ, âAchievement In Directingâ, âInternational Feature Filmâ and âBest Pictureâ. Several of us watching the 92nd Academy Awards were holding out on the breakthrough film winning it big ever since the nominations were announced on January 13, 2020. After the month long wait, Parasite faced off a tough crowd of competitors for the coveted âBest Pictureâ award - beating out Ford v. Ferrari, The Irishman, Jojo Rabbit, Joker, Little Women, Marriage Story, 1917 and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.  © Reuters Only 11 non-English films in the history of the Oscars have ever made it to the nominations for the award, with Alfonso Cuaronâs Roma making the cut last year. Itâs been particularly surprising for director Bong Joon-Ho himself, who in multiple interviews has expressed his shock at the level of worldwide acclaim that the film has received from fans and critics alike. © Reuters On receiving the first award, Joon-Ho said, âwriting a script is a very lonely process, you never write to represent your country â but this is the very first Oscar for South Korea". Soon after he gave another quick speech for his âInternational Feature Filmâ win, and was in absolute shock and delight as he stepped up to win the most personal award of the evening for him - the one recognising his talent as a director. "After winning best international feature, I thought I was done for the day and was ready to relax," Bong said upon receiving the award. "Thank you so much. When I was young and studying cinema, there was a saying that I carved deep into my heart, which is that 'the most personal is the most creative'." He went on to specifically thank and appreciate his co-nominees Martin Scorcese and Quentin Tarantino - two masters of the craft that he regarded as idols and inspirations. "When I was in school, I studied Martin Scorsese's films. Just to be nominated was a huge honor. I never thought I would win. When people in the U.S. were not familiar with my films, Quentin always put my films on his list. He's here, thank you so much. Quentin, I love you." We love you too, Bong Joon-Ho - people on Twitter erupted in an avalanche of congratulations and celebration for the historic win. Congratulations @ParasiteMovie So so proud to be Korean ð°ð·â¤ï¸ pic.twitter.com/aISEy1HUpz â Sandra Oh (@IamSandraOh) February 10, 2020
Language is a core expression of identity. Subtitles do not divide or disqualify - theyâre gateways into incredible stories you might have otherwise never known.

Tonight I heard the language of my family on the Oscars stage. ð°ð· I canât wait to hear many, many more... #Parasite pic.twitter.com/rqFdQwX4t4 â Eugene Lee Yang (@EugeneLeeYang) February 10, 2020 Moments after winning Best Picture, cast and filmmakers from @ParasiteMovie stop by the #Oscars Thank You Cam. pic.twitter.com/ckyhJkvIFD â The Academy (@TheAcademy) February 10, 2020 What a night - I think this little snapshot of Bong Joon-Ho backstage says it all.

Taika Waititi Bags First Oscar Of His Career For 'Jojo Rabbit', Promptly Stows It Under The Next Seat

Cameo roles in both the MCU and Star Wars franchise, direction/writing credits for the fan-favourite Thor: Ragnarok and indie-film chops with What We Do In The Shadows - everyone loves Taika Waititi, and thereâs no shortage of reasons for the quirky âZealanderâs popularity in recent years.  Which is why weâre all the happier for his first ever Oscar win - the filmmaker bagged a writing award for âBest Adapted Screenplayâ - a well-deserved recognition of his vision with Jojo Rabbit, which he adapted from Christine Leunensâ 2008 novel, Caging Skies. The book, while an excellent portrait of loss, ideologies and grief - Waititi brought his own unique âanti-hateâ satirical spin on the tale, even casting himself as an imaginary Adolf Hitler. No doubt the guyâs talented, but what he did immediately afterwards was downright hilarious. Actor Brie Larson happened to be sitting near Waititiâs seat, and quickly snagged this sneaky Instagram story of the director trying to find a place to keep his shiny new award. Taika Waititi putting his oscar under the chair is a mood. #Oscars

ð¥ Brie Larson via Instagram Story. pic.twitter.com/rpC5tVOVfT â Brie Larson Online (@blarsononline) February 10, 2020 Unfortunately for the audience, it seems that the Dolby Theatre - venue for the Oscars since 2002 - doesnât quite have a solution to the problem of where to keep your award once youâre done earning it. Waititi seems to have taken a cue from airline instructions however - simply stowing his Oscar underneath the seat ahead of him. Despite this funny moment, the filmmaker took a second during and after his speech to appreciate and highlight indigenous talent in the industry, saying âI dedicate this to all the Indigenous kids all over the world who want to do art and dance and write stories.â His win made him the first ever Maori filmmaker to earn an Oscar. © Reuters In a similar vein, Waititi returned to the stage to salute last yearâs Governorâs Awards recipients - making sure to pay homage to Los Angelesâ original, native American inhabitants.
âThe Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences would like to acknowledge that tonight we have gathered on the ancestral lands of the Tongva, Tataviam and the Chumash,â he said onstage at the 92nd Academy Awards on Sunday. âWe acknowledge them as the first peoples of this land on which our motion picture community lives and works.â

Billy Porter Wore A Feathered Gown To The Oscars That Reminds Us Of Ranveer's Wedding Outfit

Billy Porter has created quite a reputation for himself for turning up in the wildest, almost unthinkable outfits on the red carpet. The entire Award season can be practically turned into a Billy Poter lookbook of all his outlandish looks he's sported.  © Gettyimages These include an angel gown at the Golden Globes 2020  to a bright blue crystal jumpsuit with a silver fringe at the Grammy's this year. For the 92nd Academy Awards, Billy Porter turned up in what looked like a graphic printed voluminous skirt with gilded and feathered details on the top. The look was completed with eye-brow raising lace-up platform boots by Jimy Choo and coordinated sparkling bracelets by Atelier Swarovski. This red carpet look was a Giles Deacon Couture look. Take a look here:
© Gettyimages © Gettyimages Billy Porter made his Oscars debut last year with another such outfit that was enough to leave a lasting impression on the audience. He chose a sweeping gown by Christian Siriano that looked a lot like this year's outfit at least in terms of the structure. This also reminds of his dramatic entrance at the Met Gala, Billy Porter arrived dressed as an Egyptian winged pharaoh. The almost diva-like entrance was carried out by the six shirtless attendants who carried Billy Porter on a plank while strutting on the red carpet. This is what his outfit looked like:
© Gettyimages Namely, Billy Porter, Timothy Chalamet and a few others are the driving forces responsible for revolutionary red carpet fashion that does not conform to a standard and now passé three-piece suit norm. For the 2020 Oscars, âthis look is all about royalty,â Mr. Porter wrote in an email before the show and we agree with him. 
Thank you, Billy Porter, for serving us with killer looks one red carpet at a time.

U19 World Cup Final Ends Horribly As Bangladesh & India Players Get Into Physical Altercation

The final match of the ICC U19 World Cup 2020 had more twists and turns than an Abbas-Mustan movie. First, the Indian batting order, that had been exceptional throughout the tournament, failed to take their side over the 200-run mark. Then the Indian bowlers, especially Ravi Bishnoi, went on a four-wicket streak to bring the Boys in Blue back in contention. After that, Bangladeshi opener Parvez Hossain Emon had to go away with a hamstring cramp only to come back and play a match-winning knock.  Character separates the big -match player and just a player.Ravi Bishnoi pic.twitter.com/3UNmITofpM â Anish dalavi (@Anishdalavi14) February 9, 2020 The rains also played a disruptorâs role and prolonged the suspense of who would bring home the trophy. But there was one thing that remained constant during the entire timeline of the clash and that was the constant trash-talking and verbal altercations between the hot-headed players from both teams. Be it Bishnoi teasing Emon to connect with the ball while abusing him with no second thoughts or Shoriful Islam getting under the skin of Priyam Gargâs strikers during the first innings with a pesky smile on his face, where you could cut the tension with a knife.

The umpires had a lot of additional responsibilities during the match to make sure that the situation remained calm and within decorum but the physical altercation surely got out of hand. Former South Africna cricketer, JP Duminy shared a video of the incident while congratulation the Young Tigers on their historical win but the footage also happened to catch the moment when the fight began:  Amazing scenes here in Potchefstroom as Bangladesh pull off a miraculous victory and are the u/19 world champions.. well fought india.. standard of cricket today and throughout this tournament has been world class.. congrats Bangladesh #U19WorldCup #FutureStars pic.twitter.com/JD7re0KLo2 â JP Duminy (@jpduminy21) February 9, 2020 Check out another angle of the quarrel:  Shameful end to a wonderful game of cricket. #U19CWCFinal pic.twitter.com/b9fQcmpqbJ â Sameer Allana (@HitmanCricket) February 9, 2020Yes, it is true that these were just the Under-19 teams and you could say that the adrenaline got the better of them but to think that these athletes are the future of the game and will be seen as the flagbearer of the game of cricket at an international level within a couple of years is rather unfortunate. I hope that while their skills continue to improve, their temper does too.

Brad Pitt Finally Bags His First Acting Oscar, 24 Years After First Nomination

It was way back when in 1996 that the world first saw Brad Pitt on an Academy Award nominee list - making the honour for his role as anarchist Jeffrey Goines in 12 Monkeys. Over two decades and three more nominations later, weâve finally seen the actor come full circle, with a âBest Supporting Actorâ win at the 92nd Academy Awards for the role of Cliff Booth in Once Upon A Time⦠In Hollywood. The competition was nothing to laugh at either. Pitt beat out Tom Hanks (Fred Rogers in A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood), Anthony Hopkins (Pope Benedict XVI in The Two Popes), Al Pacino (Jimmy Hoffa in The Irishman), and Joe Pesci (Russell Bufalino in The Irishman). With both the Golden Globe and SAG awards under his belt though, it wasnât surprisingto see Pitt pick up the Oscar as well. Pitt has been a regular nominee at the awards for a while now, with 6 nominations across production and acting - having won his first award for producing 2014âs standout period-drama, 12 Years A Slave. This makes both his Oscar wins period films - and thereâs something to be said for Pittâs incredible work behind the mask of Cliff Booth. Steely, nonchalant as heck, poised and subtle - it was a demanding, complicated role that absolutely no one else could have pulled off.  © Reuters Couple this with the stratospheric direction demands of Quentin Tarantino, and youâve got the role of a lifetime ahead of you.
© Reuters "Wow," he said on stepping up to the dais, "This is really incredible." Pitt went on to make a political quip - telling the audience that his 45 seconds for the speech were â45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week,â referring to the events of President Trumpâs impeachment trial. He also took a moment to reminisce on his own early struggles in showbiz, before recognising and thanking the efforts of Hollywoodâs stunt crews and stuntmen. 
"Once Upon A Time in Hollywood, ain't that the truth?" Pitt ended his speech by dedicating the win to his kids, "I adore you."

Ravi Bishnoi: The Hot-Headed Spinner Who Can Sledge As Brilliantly As He Can Bowl

19 years and 157 days old Ravi Bishnoi not only bagged four wickets during the final between India and Bangladesh, he was also the leading wicket-taker of the entire tournament with 17 wickets in his bag. 17*: #TeamIndia leg-spinner Ravi Bishnoi becomes #U19CWC leading wicket-taker. #INDvBAN l pic.twitter.com/wrXtFwwaXf — Venkatesh R Das (@venkateshRdas) February 9, 2020 A master of legbreak googlies, Bishnoi can easily become the leading wicket-taker and a captain's first choice of bowlers and you could see India's U19 skipper Priyam Garg trusting him with the ball when it mattered the most and he did not disappoint.  And even though he looks confident about his skills, what makes the Rajasthan-born a rather interesting character is his hot-headedness despite being a spinner, a rather rare combination to have. Character separates the big -match player and just a player.Ravi Bishnoið¥ð pic.twitter.com/3UNmITofpM — Anish dalavi (@Anishdalavi14) February 9, 2020 Due to the fact that India were unable to put up a big score on the board for Bangladesh to chase, it was important for the Boys in Blue to build up some mental pressure on the opponents. From placing two fielders right in the face of the striker to surrounding them to talk trash in between overs we got to see everything during the second innings. But the kind of sledging Bishnoi provided was completely different than the rest of the squad. While he was clearly intimidating to all the batsmen he bowled to, it was his tête-à-tête with Bangladeshi opener Parvez Hossain Emon that was the highlight of the show. Bishnoi sledging Bangladeshi batsman like it is grade 10 vs grade 11 on a school sports day! ðð¯ #U19CWCFinal — Lay Thaker (@Lay_Thaker) February 9, 2020 Ahead of Yashasvi Jaiswal removing him from the pitch in the 32nd over, Bishnoi got to share some 'words of wisdom' with Emon when the former was failing to connect with the ball one delivery after another. Using some NSFW vocabulary, Bishnoi was successfully getting under his skin. And even though he wasn't able to take his wicket, getting Emon all riled up to go for a big shot has to be credited to the spinner. Check out what the Indian fans had to say: Bishnoi signalled Emon to use that 'bat a bit' after beating him concesutively & Emon acknowledged it. That's quality sledging. #U19CWCFinal #U19CWC — That Cricket Guy (@Vivek7968) February 9, 2020 Bishnoi is sledging Emon ð

Aurangabad Man Becomes First Visually Impaired Indian To Complete Ironman Race & We Are Proud

Impossible is just a word and a man from Aurangabad proved it right. Recently, Niket Dalal, 38 years old, became the first visually impaired Indian to complete the Ironman triathlon.
The triathlon consists of 1.9km of swimming, 90km of bicycling and 21.1km of the marathon that needs to be wrapped under eight hours. Niket Dalal along with his sighted ally completed the triathlon in 7 hours 44 minutes and also bagged the second position in their differently-abled category. The tedious race needs to be completed without taking any breaks in between. His sighted ally, Arham Shaikh, 27 years old and Niket trained hard for a long period of four months in order to improve their skills. The duo worked hard on their coordination and hereâs what netizens have to say about him. Kudos! #Kudos !@

Oscar Predictions 2020: Here's A List Of People Who Might Win Vs Who Should Win

In a matter of hours, the 92nd Academy Awards will be premiering. The Oscars, somehow, have always trumped the other awards. In the award season, this is one red carpet everyone looks forward to. The golden statuette means a lot to the people in the industry. This year's list includes Joaquin Phoenix for Joker, Brad Pitt for Once Upon A Time In Hollywood and even Laura Dern for her role in the film, Marriage Story.
This is when most people are racking their brains predicting which film and actor will be triumphant amongst the lot. We have Sam Mendes' 1917 that's won most awards this season and Bong Joon-Ho's Parasite, a critically acclaimed masterpiece. So here's a list of all the nominees in the main categories and the nominee that we think will win, and the one that we think should've won. 1. Best Picture
Ford v Ferrari
The Irishman
Jojo Rabbit
Joker
Little Women
Marriage Story
1917
Once Upon A Time In Hollywood
Parasite Will Win: 1917/ Joker Should Win: Parasite
Parasite, despite being a Korean film, has been universally acclaimed as hard-hitting. While Joker and 1917 are brilliant in their own right, however, it's rare for films like Parasite to make it to the top. The last time something like this took place was back in 2009 with Slumdog Millionaire.

Antonio Banderas in Pain and Glory
Leonardo DiCaprio in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
Adam Driver in Marriage Story
Joaquin Phoenix in Joker
Jonathan Pryce in The Two Popes Will Win: Joaquin Phoenix Should Win: Joaquin Phoenix
Like Leonardo Di Caprio's long-awaited win for The Revenant, I think most people will nod heads in agreement that Joaquin Phoenix in Joker was a phenomenal performance that deserves an Oscar.

Kathy Bates in Richard Jewell
Laura Dern in Marriage Story
Scarlett Johansson in Jojo Rabbit
Florence Pugh in Little Women
Margot Robbie in Bombshell Will Win: Laura Dern Should Win: Florence Pugh
While Laura Dern's speech in Marriage Story was commendable which got her this nomination in the first place, it was Amy as Florence in Little Women who moved us second to Saorise's performance.

Everything and everyone who is successful today started their journey from somewhere.

4 Grooming Essentials That Men Should Have To Get Rid Of Puffiness, Pimples & Everything Else

If issues like sudden breakouts, dark circles or puffiness have been a part of your regular routine, it's time to add new grooming products to your arsenal.
Just like your body needs caffeine to function, so does your skin. While a few grooming products are self-explanatory, there are others that you should definitely invest in. Here's a list of four grooming essentials to look perfectly turned out, all the time.
1. Exfoliation © Istock When you exfoliate your skin, the microbeads help you get rid of dead skin cells that bother your skin and ultimately burst into huge pimples. One of the easiest ways to get rid of this issue is by using a scrub once a week. For best results, lay your hands on brands like Nivea or The Body Shop that are made with natural ingredients and let your skin feel nourished instantly.
2. Lip Balm © Istock For all the TLC that you do for your skin, you cannot afford to miss out on your lips. Since your lips do not have oil glands, it constantly needs nourishment. It's wise to have a lip balm handy and one of the great products that you can try is Neutrogena's Norweigan Formula Lip Moisturizer SPF 15. It smoothens your lips, takes off all the dryness and adds protection from harsh UV rays.
3. Eye-Cream © Istock Nothing is more awkward than you showing up at work and someone telling you that you look tired. It's probably the dark circles beneath your eyes. A stellar eye cream provides hydration and nourishes the sensitive under-eye area. This product is a must-have to refresh and rejuvenate your tired skin.
4. Sunscreen © Istock Our skin is vulnerable to sun exposure and the effects of UVA and UVB rays can be quite harsh. So, what do you do? You get your hands on a sunscreen. Before stepping out, apply a dab of this cream. It is sweat-proof and shields you against skin-ageing issues. After all, no one wants to look double their age, right?
