  1. While the Indian cricket team did not have the ideal start to their very first match after the coronavirus lockdown was lifted as Australian openers Aaron Finch and David Warner were sitting on a 127 run partnership (at the time of writing this article), it was the Indian cricket board that faced instant heat online when they asked about the retro jersey that was introduced during this series. How many retweets for #TeamIndia's retro kit?#AUSvIND — BCCI (@BCCI) November 27, 2020 The official Twitter handle of BCCI asked their followers to retweet their post if they liked the new look of the classic 1992 World Cup jersey. Instead, they received a lot of backlash simply because of how ‘in-your-face’ the sponsor logos are. Was that India's jersey or Byju's jersey ?? Difference is Nike and Mpl . Mpl logo size is bigger as it is different from nike's "tick" — Pratimaan Priyam (@PratimaanPriyam) November 27, 2020Is it BYJU'S team or the national team...can't @BCCI sponsor the jersey. Why are we paying taxes ?? — Pranav Kumar Jha (@PranavK58992173) November 27, 2020Cheeeee.. seems to be Byjus team than India's team — Sandeep Khaitan (@Sandeepkhaitan) November 27, 2020 It is worth clarifying that the jersey itself looks pretty decent and pays homage to the ones worn by Sachin Tendulkar and Co during their World Cup campaign over 28 years ago. It is simply the massive BYJU’s and MLP logos that take away the attention from the fact that it is truly a Team India jersey and not a brand-centric kit. The typical blue and orange jersey continues to be a national favourite, however, when it comes to showing innovation and designing new alternatives, the Indian cricket board has failed to impress, be it the jersey during the Australia series or the ones designed for World Cup 2019 - which many people mistook as the uniform of a petrol pump employee. These new jerseys are amazing! But glad they're only for this one game coming up. #BleedFuel #INDvENG #CWC19 — Siddharth (@Actor_Siddharth) June 29, 2019 The Indian cricket team are stationed Down Under for a massive tour which includes all three formats of the game. While the three-match ODI series kicked off today, the three-match T20I series will begin from December 4, 2020 and the first of four Tests is scheduled to begin from December 17. Indian captain Virat Kohli will be returning home on paternity leave after playing the first Test at Adelaide to be with his wife and family for the birth of his first child. Meanwhile, there has been a “lack of clarity” on the injury update of Rohit Sharma, as explained by Kohli ahead of the first ODI. Addressing the media in a video, Kohli said: "Right now, there is so much uncertainty and whether they (Rohit Sharma and Ishant Sharma) are going to make it and if they are going to make it at all or not. After that (the selection meeting) he played in the IPL and we all thought he would be on that flight to Australia and we had no information on why he is not travelling with us. There has been no information, there has been a lack of clarity." View the full article
  2. Each year, video games are getting more realistic than ever with environments that can often be mistaken for the real thing. That’s exactly what happened at a local TV station in Oregon, USA where the channel showed a screenshot from Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2 (RDR2) in its 'Out & About’. The segment was all about sharing real-life pictures of natural landscapes which showed off the natural beauty of the wilderness. If you haven’t played the game, these ingredients can be found in Rockstar’s rendition of 19th Century America. © Youtube/NewsChannel21 The screenshot that was used in the segment showed off the Cumberland waterfall and Dakota river of New Hanover with snow-capped mountains of Ambarino in the backdrop. The fact that the news channel used a screenshot from the game is a testament to how Rockstar’s handcrafted world is still a sight to behold two years later. The open-world setting in Red Dead Redemption 2 is one of the best and most realistic we’ve ever seen in a game. That’s because Rockstar took inspiration from real-world locations in North America that it even managed to convince the producers at the news channel. Ayeeeeeeeeee from r/RedDeadOnline In case you want to see exactly where the news channel made the mistake, you will see the screenshot at the 20-second mark in the video below: This is not the first time where a Rockstar game has been mistaken for the real thing. Last year, a politician in Pakistan was filled by a video created in GTA V where an aeroplane narrowly avoided an oil tanker. The politician mistook the video as a real-life incident and wrote “Narrow escape of an aircraft which could have ended in a great disaster. Miraculous save by the pilot’s presence of mind,” in the now-deleted tweet. Did you also mistake the screenshot from RDR2 as a real location? Let us know what you think of RDR2’s graphics and how far the game has come since its launch two years ago. We don’t entirely blame the channel for mistakenly using a screenshot from RDR2 as it could have fooled anyone. Source: Reddit View the full article
  3. As the COVID-19 spread continues, we are forced to consider re-usable and comfortable options for our protection. A transparent face mask checks off both these boxes. Apart from the skin infections and other forms of physical discomfort, it’s also difficult to communicate in masks. In these times of social isolation, the least that we can hope for is a smile from a familiar face. But thanks to the masks, basic communication is now all the more difficult. These are only some of the many reasons why people are actually moving towards transparent face masks. These masks may be more expensive than regular ones, but they are definitely more comfortable and cheap in the long run. In case you’re still not convinced, here are some facts highlighting many more benefits of these revolutionary masks. __ECOMLOOKS__2109__ __ECOMLOOKS__2110__ __ECOMLOOKS__2111__ __ECOMLOOKS__2112__ __ECOMLOOKS__2113__ Final Thoughts There’s a reason why these face masks are becoming most people’s go-to option. Even though they are slightly more expensive, they are totally worth the price. Do let us know about your thoughts on transparent face masks, in the comments below! Explore More View the full article
  4. The Pakistan cricket team that is currently in the middle of a tour of New Zealand, has been given a ‘final warning’ by the chief executive of the Pakistan Cricket Board after proof of some of the cricketers breaking Covid-19 protocol have been raised. Wasim Khan, in an WhatsApp voice note, has issued an ultimatum to his cricketers in which he said that New Zealand Cricket and the government of New Zealand have ordered them to fall in line and obey the rules established to combat the ongoing pandemic or else they will be sent back home. "They’ve given us a final warning" The Pakistan squad in New Zealand could be deported back if they don't continue to follow the quarantine regulations in the country — ESPNcricinfo (@ESPNcricinfo) November 26, 2020 According to Associated Press, Khan in the WhatsApp note said: “They have zero tolerance and they have given us a final warning. I know it’s difficult times for you and it’s not easy. You have operated in similar conditions (playing) in England ... it’s a matter of the country’s respect and credibility. Please observe 14 days, then you will get freedom in New Zealand to go out in restaurants and roam around, but please adhere to full protocols.” The voice note also said that there were at least three to four protocol breaches. The New Zealand cricket board confirmed that despite the entire Pakistan entourage being tested four times before making the trip (all of which were negative at the time), there have been six positive cases in the first round of tests that were done in New Zealand. Closed-circuit television footage showed some members of the Pakistan squad had contravened protocols on the first day of managed isolation. PCB CEO Wasim Khan contacts Pakistan squad in New Zealand, tells them to strictly follow the protocols put in place by NZ government after team was “issued with a final warning” by NZ health dept following the breach of managed isolation rules by some members. — Faizan Lakhani (@faizanlakhani) November 26, 2020 It is rather shocking and outright unpleasant to see the Pakistan cricket team behave like someone no smarter than a bunch of wannabe backbenchers who wish to go against the rules and do exactly the opposite of what they have been told not to. To be consoled and explained by a higher authority to follow the rules and say “you will get to roam around” once the quarantine period is over feels as if the team is built of a group of spoiled teenagers who can’t spend a couple of weeks inside their lavish hotel suites. Pakistan cricket team given "final warning" by New Zealand for flouting quarantine rules as six squad members test positive for Covid-19 — AFP News Agency (@AFP) November 26, 2020 These are grown men who should know better than to break the protocol, least to say on the very first day, and endanger themselves and everyone around them to catch hold of the deadly and highly contagious virus. As of now the team’s exemption to practice in managed isolation has been withheld and a final verdict will only be voiced once further investigation has been done. The New Zealand government could not have been humbler when they simply called the protocol-break “disappointing”. It is shameful and disrespectful to another country that was kind enough to invite you for a series of cricket matches and you end up breaking their trust on multiple occasions. View the full article
  5. Fall Guys was one of the games that gained massive popularity during the COVID-19 lockdown. It was on top of the Steam charts and is still being played by millions of people. Fall Guys has also been very consistent with their updates and extending good support. It hasn't been that long since the game came out but we already have 2 seasons out. Now, it looks like Fall Guys devs are planning on releasing season 3 very soon. Here, check out the teaser - HUGE SHOUT OUT to everyone for working together and completing this puzzle! I'm pleased to announce the theme of #FallGuysSeason3 is... ️ Fall Guys: Winter Knockout ️ Or, as I personally like to call it: ️ Fall Guys goes brrr ️ — Fall Guys (@FallGuysGame) November 25, 2020 The 3rd season of the game was already teased by the Fall Guys' community director. But now we have an official teaser on their Twitter handle. In fact, we also know that season 3's theme is going to be winter. Veteran fans of the game came across the theme via pieces of a literal puzzle. 300 Twitter users were sent a piece of the promo image which they then put together to reveal the winter theme. In fact, the whole act of putting together the puzzle turned into a race and it was a joy to witness as a part of the community. © Mediatonic We don't know much about this new season but it looks we're definitely getting some new costumes. We already see a penguin and a snowman. It looks like we're also getting a mini-game in which players jump through holes in a moving board. Fall Guys' season 2 wasn't exactly a huge success since there weren't too many new games or levels. However, the Fall Guys team has expanded since then and we have huge expectations from this new season. In case you're interested, then you can check out Fall Guys on Steam. It's currently available at a discounted price as a part of the Autumn Steam sale too. View the full article
  6. What an Oscar is to the film fraternity, a Grammy is to musicians all across the world. Why the Grammys are so valuable lies in the fact that it serves as a global recognition for achievements in the music industry. © Instagram/Chesky Records And while getting a Grammy nomination itself is a big deal, winning the real thing is definitely priceless too. So what do you think would happen when an upcoming artist finds out that their maiden album, yes, the very first, has been nominated for a Grammy? Seems almost impossible, right? But Brooklyn-based Indian songwriter and singer, Priya Darshini, has made the impossible come true! Priya Darshini’s debut album, titled Periphery, has been nominated for this year's Grammy Awards, under the ‘Best New Age Album’ category. © Instagram/Priya Darshini Sharing the news and her utter disbelief over the nomination, Priya Darshini shared on Twitter that she had recorded the Live album entirely on one mic and that getting a Grammy nomination almost feels dreamlike! I can’t believe it!!! My debut album PERIPHERY is nominated for a Grammy in the Best New Age Album category! A Live album, recorded entirely on ONE Mic getting a nod from the Academy is really quite surreal. — Priya Darshini (@priyism_) November 24, 2020 She also shared how, “Writing this record and diving into such a deep authentic vulnerable space with you has been one of the most beautiful & powerful experiences of my life.” This comes against the backdrop of Priya Darshini’s attempts to form her idea of home and identity away from her motherland. Speaking about her very own dream come true moment, Priya Darshini tweeted, I’ve dreamt of this day since I was little, but I never really thought dreams like this could come true for someone like me, tamizh ponnu from Goregaon, Mumbai! Thank you for all your messages of love, and support. I feel so held! — Priya Darshini (@priyism_) November 24, 2020 We are glad her talent and hard work have found the recognition they deserve. And of course, congratulations have been pouring in since! Well ain't this something to celebrate: Congrats to Dr. Joan Morgan (@milfinainteasy) on your Grammy nomination for Best New Age Album as a songwriter on Priya Darshini's PERIPHERY. For decades, you've been an inspiration as a music writer, scholar & now, Grammy-nominee! — Dr. Steven W. Thrasher (@thrasherxy) November 24, 2020Appreciating Anoushka Shankar for Best world album and Priya Darshini for Best new age album! More power to you both! You made India proud.🇮🇳 #GRAMMYs thread ~ — ᴮᴱSaayu⁷ (@saayu26) November 25, 2020Congratulations!! We're so proud and happy for you!!! Love the album btw. I had goosebumps while listening to it. 🥺 — ᴮᴱbee⁷||♡ (@daechwitahoe_) November 25, 2020Indian's priya darshini is nominated for #newagealbum for periphery. Proud moment as indian 🇮🇳 @ot7religion — ᴮᴱEuphxrial⁷ (@featherlysin) November 24, 2020That has to be the best news of this year. Heartiest Congratulations.

  7. Farhan Akhtar is currently working on his film Toofan. However, he also has a line of films ahead of him which include Phone Bhoot and Sharmaji Namkeen. Both of these are also scheduled for next year which means 2021 is going to be a huge year for Farhan Akhtar. View this post on Instagram This is perhaps the reason why we get to see him outside so often. Recently he had stepped out in an interesting pair of shorts. Take a look at his odd outfit here: © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Farhan Akhtar was seen wearing a dark blue sleeveless hoodie over a light blue solid t-shirt underneath it. He was also wearing an odd pair of drop-crotch, drawstring cargo pants that had a weird fit. We believe that even though the drawstrings were there to tweak the fitting of the outfit according to different body types, Farhan intentionally went for a relatively loose fit which contributed to the weird overall fitting of the shorts. Take a close at the shorts here: © Viral Bhayani For the uninitiated, drop crotch shorts or pants refer to pants that are designed to sag down loosely toward the knees from the middle as can be seen in Farhan's case. © Viral Bhayani Farhan had finished the look with a pair of Nike velcro sneakers and a half-up man bun. Taking into account a couple of his last public appearances, it looks like the half-up man bun is Farhan's new signature hairstyle. We have mixed feelings about the outfit but considering its 2020 and the theme of the year is 'all-casual', we approve. What do you guys think? View the full article
  8. When you are an actor who is trying to own up the look of a character, one of the most challenging things to keep in mind is the aesthetic appeal. Many films demand characters to don a certain ‘look’ which is very different from the natural look of the actor playing the part. So to keep the secrecy intact and ensure that the audience is surprised when they watch the movie in theatres, actors keep their movie look under cover and take extra precaution while stepping out in public. Here are 5 such actors who tried their best to ensure that their movie look was literally kept under a garb and kept the fans guessing: 1. Amitabh bachchanWhen he took on the challenge to play Auro in Paa, there was major hype around the prosthetics and the make up that was used to create this look for him. It was very difficult for the actor to ensure that the look was kept a secret and he tried his best to keep away from any cameras on the set that could leak the look. 2. Ranveer SinghRight before his super hit Bajirao Mastani was released, the superstar was always spotted with a handlebar moustache and a hat. This was his public appearance look for almost a year as he was supposed to keep the whole look under cover. Surely, this worked for him as we were indeed surprised to see the final look on the big screen. © Instagram 3. Shahid KapoorKnown to own up every role he takes up, this amazing actor went the extra mile in keeping his hair look as a big secret for Haider as well Udta Punjab. Shahid’s hair experiments were worth the wait as both the looks were a big hit amongst his fans. © Instagram 4. Ranbir KapoorWhen he was shooting for Rockstar, his ‘Jordan’ look was kept under the wraps for the general public. Cameras were strictly prohibited on sets and while the look was never leaked when he was shooting in India, during the Prague schedule, his look was leaked and fans went into a frenzy. © Instagram 5. Abhishek BachchanHis much-awaited look from his upcoming movie Bob Biswas got leaked today and the actor looks absolutely unrecognisable. Earlier, he had managed to keep this look under the wraps but post looking at it today on social media, it is safe to say that AB baby fans are excited for this one to drop soon. © Instagram View the full article
  9. Everybody has a constitutional right to protest, right? Well, then it's really ironic how the farmers who are protesting are getting treated in the most inhuman way that, too on Constitution Day. As part of the Dilli Chalo protest, farmers had been marching towards Delhi to peacefully fight against the Centre's farm laws that would curb their income, leaving them at the "mercy" of big corporates. © Twitter In retaliation to the protest, Haryana police have barricaded the borders and blasted the farmers with water cannons, when it's one of the coldest winters, and used tear gas on them as well. © Twitter The pictures and videos from the borders where the protest is being prevented from moving any further look way too dystopian and people are angry and heartbroken at the treatment of farmers. Happy Constitution Day 2020. (If you know who took this photograph, please tag.) — Sayantan Ghosh (@sayantansunnyg) November 26, 2020So much manpower to disperse a peaceful protest where people whose livelihood is at stake just want to be heard and ask for answers, this is what the country has come to now. #MazdoorKisanStrike #StrikeHard Let's see who wins!!!!! — Adrita Dutta (@AdritaDutta07) November 26, 2020 The farmers' resilience is something to be commended but the entire situation is so screwed up. Not only any Government but millions of lives are dependent on #Farmers. We eat because farmer produces but today the power in regime wants to suppress their voices. #FarmersDilliChalo march amidst Pandemic should be a prior concern for Modi government. #FarmersProtest — Daljeet (@Daljeet60298165) November 26, 2020 People are showing their solidarity. In solidarity! This marks the beginning of a revolution! #FarmersProtest 🏼 — Prashasti ☭ (@nehazard7) November 26, 2020 These farmers are more essential for this country than literally any other person. India can never forgive the govt who treats those who feed this nation like terrorists.#FarmersProtest — Youth Congress (@IYC) November 26, 2020 Of course, the pandemic is a cause for concern, but why the selective retaliation? So massive election rallies are okay. But farmers and mazdoors aren't allowed to protest against bills that determine their future. When they gather, they're met with inhuman cold water cannons in winters & times of corona. Such a shame!#FarmersProtest — Hasiba | حسيبة (@HasibaAmin) November 26, 2020 This is so cruel. Y+ security for self made rani Lakshmi bai and water cannon and tear gas for the one's feeding us. This is new India promised by Mr.56 inch #FarmersProtest — Shivankar Joshi (@accidental_sach) November 26, 2020 Hmm.

This is what they mean when they say Kisan Shakti!#StrikeHard — Dastak DU (@DastakDu) November 26, 2020 They have a right to be heard. We stand in solidarity with our annadatas who are marching to Delhi to protest peacefully against the draconian farm laws. The BJP govt. cannot suppress the voice of farmers with their cruelty and brute force. #FarmersDilliChalo #FarmersProtest — TS Singh Deo (@TS_SinghDeo) November 26, 2020 The coolest person ever. This young protestor jumped on to the the water cannon, turned the tap off and jumped right back on to his trolley, during yesterday's protest at Punjab-Haryana border. #BharatBand #bharatbandh — Avantika Tewari (@Avantikatewari) November 26, 2020 Disputed, for sure.

  10. Today is the 12th anniversary since the dreadful day in 2008 when as many as 170 innocent people were mercilessly killed by Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists in Mumbai. Even today, it isn’t just fear that surfaces at the mention of 26/11. © BCCL A tornado of emotions acts up and boils over within the heart of every Indian as soon as the 2008, 26/11 Mumbai terror attack is mentioned. There’s pain, there’s loss and there’s trauma that hundreds continue to live with even after 12 years since the day of tragedy. Seems like it isn’t just Indians who wish to ‘Never Forget’ the 26/11 and demand for a closure. Israelis too have come forward to organise ceremonies and pay respects to the victims of the 26/11 attacks. They are also demanding that the perpetrators be tried and brought to justice. Today we remember the victims of the terrible #MumbaiTerrorAttack of 26/11, which targeted citizens of #India, #Israel and the world. This painful chapter in our shared history only strengthens our bond and commitment to stop global terrorism together. #NeverForget — Ron Malka 🇮🇱 (@DrRonMalka) November 26, 2020 Condemning “Pakistan-sponsored terrorism” and remembering the innocent lives that were lost on the fateful day, Israelis and Indian students paid their respects to the victims in Jerusalem, Rehovot and Tel Aviv yesterday, while more ceremonies have been scheduled for today in Beersheva and Eilat. That’s not all, Israelis in Eilat are hoping to build a memorial square in the memory of the victims of the Mumbai attacks. © BCCL Speaking to PTI, Isaac Solomon said, “Israel opposes every country that provides financial and logistical support to terrorists. Peaceful countries should come together to boycott diplomatically and financially those countries that support terrorism.” He also added, “It is a matter of pride for us Israelis to have a peaceful country like India as our friend. We pray that our friendship continues to grow strong.” Indians have also appreciated Israel’s gesture. 🇮🇳India’s all weather friend 🇮🇱Israel stands with India asks for Justice and to Punish perpetrators of #MumbaiTerrorAttacks 26/11 #MumbaiTerrorAttack : 🇮🇱Israelis pay respects to victims, demand justice for them - Oneindia News — vishal mehta🇮🇳 (@vishalnautamlal) November 26, 2020After 26/11, Israel has helped & co operated with India regarding intelligence & defence front. — Madhu🇮🇳 (@Madhukshara_C) November 26, 2020It's really wonderful to see you @MayaKadosh paying homage in the remembrance of great heroes of #MumbaiTerrorAttack on 26/11.

  11. Vidyut Jammwal's acting career is soaring high after he gave a spectacular performance in Khuda Haafiz and Yaara. If we take a look at his Instagram feed and appearances, the actor's fashion game is fused and injected with the right amount of suaveness and he never fails to grab our attention when he steps out. © Viral Bhayani As for Vidyut's style aesthetics, he is usually seen wearing baggy silhouettes and has cracked the code right, each time he has stepped out, trying to ace the hip look. This time too, when he was spotted at a cafe, we couldn't help but notice Vidyut's uniquely styled outfit. © Viral Bhayani While it looks very basic, we like how he has experimented with the silhouette here and has managed to turn heads with this outfit. Firstly, let's talk about the oversized T-shirt that he is wearing here. The T-shirt, even though it is a basic black-hued one, has a quirky vibe going on with the text on the sleeves. Coming to his pants, he has coupled it with a pair of black harem pants, with a drop crotch silhouette, that looks comfortable for a casual outing. The long side pockets with neatly done pleats on the sides make these pants an uber-cool addition. © Viral Bhayani While these are the details for the outfit he wore, the pièce de résistance here are his sneakers, to be honest. I mean, just take a look at the pair and the way he has donned the shoes. These are the longest pair of sneakers that we have seen in a while and that coupled, over the harem pants, looks spot on. Here let's look into the details of the pair he is wearing. © Rick Owens He is wearing Rick Owens Hood 'off-the-runway' dirt Grafton Sock shoes. Perfectly designed with dark, alluring style aesthetics, these boots are crafted from pure leather and feature a round toe. The chunky ridged rubber sole of these sneakers comes with a contrasting tan-brown detailing and is finished with detailing at the ankle. © Rick Owens When the pair looks this good, even the price of the shoes will be extravagant, without a doubt. These sneakers are approximately worth Rs 80,000 and this won't include your regular customs and import duties. Hence, this pair is bound to be an overly expensive pair of shoes, if one wishes to get it to India. © Viral Bhayani All in all, that's one heck of a way to step out, and with Vidyut's way of pairing these sock sneakers, these can easily give Ranveer's long sneakers a run for their money which he wore in 2019. Don't you agree with us? View the full article
  12. Now that the IPL season is over, Indian cricketers are looking forward to the upcoming series against Australia starting from Friday. However, there's one man who couldn't make the trip Down Under but is certainly enjoying the spoils of his victory as a part of the Mumbai Indians - Krunal Pandya. Besides Pandya's spectacular stretch on the field, another thing that has left us impressed about him recently is the way he is stepping up his grooming game. © Instagram/Hakim Aalim While we all know that both the Pandya brothers have time and again experimented with their hairstyles, this time it was the spinner took it up a notch higher and tried a new style formula, as we have never seen before, even on Hardik. © Instagram/Hakim Aalim His hairstylist, Hakim Aalim took to Instagram and posted Krunal's picture in which the cricketer can be seen sporting freshly done razor sharp micro zero fade. Take a look: © Instagram/Hakim Aalim Getting a zero fade is not a cakewalk and is definitely something a barber has to work on very intricately to get this hairstyle. It takes a whole new level of precision and there are special types of trimmers used just to get zero fades. Luckily, for Krunal, such a hairstyle, actually makes him look like a true rockstar, as quoted by Hakim Aalim. © Instagram/Hakim Aalim The sharp razor cut is in alignment with the light eyebrow shadow and a subtle fade on the side looks flamboyant. On top of that, Krunal's patchy beard with an unkempt goatee is doing total justice to the overall new look that he has gotten here. This truly has to be one of the funkiest hairstyles that Krunal has tried in a while as earlier the cricketer has been spotted in some cool buzz cut hairstyles and has been experimenting more with his beard styles than his hair Take a look at some of his other hairstyles here. © Instagram/Hakim Aalim © Instagram/Hakim Aalim And finally, the biggest hair transformation that we have seen. © Instagram/Hakim Aalim Way to go, Krunal!

  13. CD Projekt Red has guaranteed that there will be no more delays for Cyberpunk 2077 and it will meet its December 10th release date. This time around the developers are 100% sure that it will not be pushed back again even though the game has seen three separate delays during its development cycle. © CD Prokekt Red As a part of the developer/publisher third-quarter performance report, CDPR mentioned the game’s December 10th release quite a few times and CFO Piotr Nielubowicz also relayed the same message. He also confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077’s marketing campaign has already kicked off in various parts of the world. The developer also recently shared gameplay footage from the PS4 Pro/PS5 and Xbox One X/Series X to showcase the performance of the game. Usually, gameplay footage from consoles arrives from a build that is almost final. It is also worth pointing out that Cyberpunk 2077’s final delay was caused due to its performance on the PS4 Pro and the Xbox One X which seems to have been resolved as of now. The game will receive a day 1 patch that irons out bugs and has fixes for better stability. © CD Projeket Red Recently, a Cyberpunk 2077 developer also shared a screenshot which showed him playing the game for a total of 175 hours and still not having finished the game. He was playing the ‘Nomad’ lifepath which is a good indication as to how much content we can expect from the game. We’re keeping tabs on the game until its launch and will keep you updated if we hear any more information. For now, you can head on over to our dedicated Cyberpunk 2077 site which features every information about the game including features, news, guides and other useful information. View the full article

  15. With the thirteenth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) in the rearview mirror, all eyes are now set on India and Australia in what is arguably the biggest tour in international cricket this year. The two teams will be seen locking horns in four Tests, three ODIs and as many T20Is in a two-month long cricketing action. With India already hitting the ground running Down Under, they'll be eager to kickstart the proceedings on a winning note when they take the field against Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) in the 1st ODI on 27th November. While Team India enjoys a superior ranking in the ODIs when compared to Australia, Virat Kohli & co. will be wary of the challenge the Aussies pr Though the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has assembled the best possible 32-man squad, the Kohli-led side have a few headaches, notably the absence of Rohit Sharma, to tackle going into the first match. Picking the right players for specified roles will surely bolster India's chances for success in Sydney and captain Kohli will hope to assemble his best Playing XI. While we won't get to know India's line-up until the toss at the SCG for the 1st ODI, here's our predicted Playing XI for the 'Men in Blue' which doesn't just help Kohli in attaining the right team balance, but can also give the Aussies a run for their money in the upcoming match: Top-Order Probables © Twitter/@BCCI In the last couple of years, the middle-order has been the achilles' heel for India. A lot of players have been tried and tested, but the middle-order woes, one of the reasons for India's World Cup exit in 2019, continued to haunt the 'Men in Blue'. But, earlier this year, the Indian team management found a possible solution in Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul who looked better than the rest at No. 4 and 5 respectively. There's no reason for India to overlook Rahul and Shreyas in those roles, especially after their impressive performances in IPL 2020. At the No. 6 spot, India will surely go for Hardik Pandya, instead of Manish Pandey, in the finisher's role. The Mumbai Indians star was exceptional with the willow during his team's fifth IPL triumph. The Pace Attack © Reuters The Indian team has two very effective options in Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav when it comes to spin bowling. Both the spinners have enough experience under their belts and are absolute masters of their craft. But, despite their skillset, India cannot afford the luxury of playing them both. Thus, when it comes to picking one of them, Chahal seems a much-better and practical option. While his attacking leg-spin bowling will surely bolster India's armoury, the fact that Australian line-up includes more right-handers, including the likes of Steve Smith, Marnus Labuschagne, Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis, further bolsters his case over Kuldeep. India can back Chahal with Ravindra Jadeja who, given the fact that Hardik isn't bowling of late, can fulfill the role of an all-rounder. Wicket-Keeping Role View the full article
