  1. At the launch of the iPhone XS Max and XS, Apple claimed that the new smartphones can last up to 1.5 hours longer than it's predecessor. A recent test carried out by a YouTuber revealed that the iPhone XS Max can outlast most rival flagship phones when it comes to battery life. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The test was conducted by YouTuber MrWhoseTheBoss, where four phones were tested for battery life. The test included Apple's iPhone XS Max, Samsung's Galaxy Note 9, Google Pixel 3 XL and the Sony Xperia XZ3. To put things into perspective, the iPhone XS Max has a 3,174 mAh battery which was revealed from a regulatory filing. It is smaller than the smartphones it was put against, as the Galaxy Note 9 has a 4,000 mAh battery, the Pixel 3 XL has a 3,430 mAh battery and the Xperia XZ3 has a 3,300 mAh battery. © YouTube Even though the iPhone XS Max has a smaller battery life, it still managed to last longer than all of the other smartphones in question. In the test, all four phones ran a series of applications and games that would simulate everyday use on the smartphones. It was revealed that the Sony XZ3 was the first to die in a matter of three hours. Google Pixel 3 XL managed to survive for five hours and 20 minutes at which point the iPhone XS Max still had 11 per cent left. The Note 9 managed to last the longest at six hours and three minutes while the iPhone XS Max managed to last a few minutes longer. © YouTube It is worthy to point out that the Note 9 is capable of lasting longer than the iPhone XS Max only when the resolution is kept at default settings. The iPhone XS Max runs at a resolution of 2688×1242 which is higher than the Galaxy Note 9 (1080p). In order to run a fair test, the YouTuber cranked up the Galaxy Note 9's resolution to the maximum i.e. 2960×1440 to replicate similar testing conditions. If you're interested to watch the test for yourself, you can always check out the video by MrWhoseTheBoss below:
  2. Every few months we have a new device being launched in the midrange segment by almost every company. The mobile technology world is rapidly advancing and with more options, the number of features and pricing is the core factor for consumers. Joining the bandwagon, Honor has launched the successor of Honor 7X and here's everything you need to know about it. The Honor 7X was among the first phones to bring a dual rear camera setup in this price range, but it had a very basic metal construction. With the Honor 8X, the back is made of glass with a double textured design and 15 layers of aurora glass. The front has a notched display and a claimed screen-to-body ratio of 91 per cent. © Honor On the front is a 6.5-inch Full HD+ (1080x2340 pixels) display with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. The phone is powered by an octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 710 SoC along with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage in the base variant. The second variant comes with 6GB RAM and 64GB of storage and the third one has 6GB RAM along with 128GB storage. Both feature expandable storage via a microSD card as well. The rear of the phone consists of a 20-megapixel primary sensor and a 2-megapixel secondary sensor. The front has a 16-megapixel camera for selfies. The camera incorporates many AI-powered features like AR stickers, Portrait mode, HDR, and Super Night Scene. While the phone has a fingerprint sensor on the back, it also supports authentication via Face Unlock. © Honor The phone is powered by a 3750mAh battery that supports 10W fast charging and an AI-powered battery saving option. Unlike many other phones out there, the Honor 8X has a triple slot tray, meaning it can run two SIM cards as well as a microSD card for memory expansion. The smartphone boots Android 8.1 Oreo-based EMUI out of the box. The base variant is priced at Rs 14,999, the second variant with 6GB+64GB configuration costs Rs 16,999 and the 6GB+128GB variant is priced at Rs 18,999. They will be available in India starting October 24, exclusively via Amazon, in Black, Red, and Blue colour options.
  3. The timing of consuming whey protein has always been a hot topic. For decades, people believed that you need to consume whey protein immediately after your workout. With time, however, theories have changed but the myths around this refuse to die down. How to take maximum advantage of whey protein consumption? The latest that you will get to hear is that whey protein is maximum absorbed when taken before a workout, not after. This thought is being supported by many believing that it makes sense, as your body will absorb all the protein during the weight training. Let's find out if this claim holds any substance. What Does Research Say? © Thinkstock We're lucky that we already have a research study where the effects of consuming whey protein before the workout and after the workout were compared. In this research, a group of men were divided into two and both the groups were given a protein shake containing 25 gm protein. One group received it immediately before their workout and the second group received it immediately after their workout. The study found no significant differences in muscle strength and size between both the groups. Thus it doesn't really matter whether you take your whey protein shake before or after your workout. Daily Protein Intake Plays Crucial Role If your target is to gain muscle size and strength, completing your daily intake of protein is a big factor, rather than timing your protein. The RDA of an average person is 0.8gm/kg which is the minimum amount of protein that a person should consume in his diet. However, people who weight train regularly and athletes, have higher requirements of protein. Though the exact amount of protein intake will depend upon your level of training and other factors, experts recommend consuming around 1.6gm/kg of protein to gain muscle size and strength. Therefore, till the time you are able to meet this requirement of 1.6gm/kg of protein requirement every day; there is no need to worry about timing your protein shake near your workout. It's About Individual Convenience & Preference © Thinkstock As a coach, I often receive requests from my clients to time their protein shake somewhere in the morning when they are leaving for their work. Even those who do their workouts in the evening, sometimes prefer to drink their protein in the morning; reason being? Convenience. They are in a hurry in the morning to reach their office and thus want a convenient way to meet their protein macros. This way, they are able to save time by not having to cook. This is what I want to tell you guys. It's all about your personal convenience at the end. If it's convenient for you to have your protein around your workout, go ahead and consume it around your workout. If not, don't worry. Just have it at the time that suits you the most and concentrate on completing your overall protein intake for the day.

  4. Internet's favourite pastime seems to be solving mysteries and optical illusions that continue to baffle the world. After solving the confusion of the infamous 'Blue or Black dress', 'Beach or Door' and 'Yanny or Laurel'; the internet has now switched its Sherlock mode on to find out the truth behind this particular picture. The world was divided back then between Yanny and Laurel, and today, it's divided between a person's back and neck. Seriously, is that even a debatable topic? How hard can it be to differentiate between a neck and someone's back? In this case, hard enough to sprain your neck, back and eyes (from looking at the picture for too long). Why tf I thought this was her neck pic.twitter.com/4gMnOlTegc — MartyMula (@LilMaarty) October 7, 2018 Twitter user Marty Mula recently shared a picture with the caption, "Why tf I thought this was her neck." Wait...is that not a neck? I am not alone, these people too thought it's a neck.

  5. Horror movies and shows are not everyone's cup of tea, I would know, I'm a huge wimp when it comes to them. But, I feel like there is a huge amount of people who love to get scared out of their wits and look out for new horror stuff to watch, I mean that's why people keep making them. So, for people who enjoy the genre, they're always on the lookout for new stuff to watch and probably believe the scarier the better. And now, Netflix is here to fulfil everyone's wishes with some extremely scary stuff, that is literally not for the faint of heart. I'm guessing everyone has heard about the new Netflix Original – 'The Haunting of Hill House' – because everyone can't stop tweeting about it, because well, it's a little too scary. But, I guess since it's Halloween, 'tis the season to be spooked. But, first here's a little background on the show, it's loosely based on Shirley Jackson's 1959 gothic novel, 'The Haunting of Hill House'. It follows a “group of siblings who grew up in what would go on to become the most famous haunted house in the country, as tragedy forces them -- now adults -- back to the house to confront the ghosts of the past.” Here's the trailer- With people saying that they threw up and passed out because of the show, to some even claiming that they got an anxiety attack, it's safe to say this show is redefining the meaning of 'Netflix and Chill'. So, here are some tweets from those who have watched the show. If you have watched it already, you'll have people who understand and relate to you or if you haven't, then you get a fair idea of what you can expect and be prepared for it. Okay, then. The Haunting of Hill House on @NetflixUK is one of the most terrifying, nail biting, hide behind the couch, don't even breath, I'm going to pass out from fear things I have ever watched. In. My. Life. — Baby Jane (@babyjanequeen) October 13, 2018 Well, it's worth a watch. The haunting of hill house, if you like horror/thrillers you gotta watch it. If you dont you still gotta watch it! Its super well made and very good at telling a story. pic.twitter.com/eTr0vHjMd7 — ole (@oleee_96) October 16, 2018 Don't watch it before sleeping. Watching Haunting of hill house before bed wasn't the best idea pic.twitter.com/WppxjEa5qp — Lowri Davies (@LowDxx) October 14, 2018 I'm scared to watch, tbh. The Haunting of Hill House was brilliant but terrifying and I'll never sleep again — Maddie Taylor (@maddie__taylor) October 14, 2018 A recurring feeling. I made a poor decision in watching #HauntingofHillHouse prior to needing to go to sleep. Yes, for the record, I am an adult. Sometimes. pic.twitter.com/QS4vxU99Jo — Erin, PA-C (@tricoastie) October 16, 2018 Don't know what scene and don't want to find out. okay im watching the haunting of hill house and at first i thought i was going crazy bc i kept seeing faces in the shadows or continuity errors of bodies standing in windows but now im positive after this scene that it's absolutely purposeful and its terrifying to the bone pic.twitter.com/fAJ6WyNo1m — courtney van ness ð»ð§¡ð¸ð®ð·ð (@cjfeisty) October 15, 2018 Is it? The Haunting of Hill House has blown me away. The old haunted house tale is given a psychological revamp for the modern viewer: this is by far the most complex and complete horror series of its time. Compiled with eeringly rich, dark cinematic shots. #Netflix #ShirleyJackson — Nayab Chaudhry (@NayabChaudhry) October 15, 2018 Kinda want to watch it. HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE: Genuinely scary and creepy (a few jumpscares made me yell out loud), but it's the attention to character, the drama that unfolds within this family, that makes this show truly special. Great performances, stunning direction. Tearjerker. Don't miss it — Matthew Simmons (@MattSimmonsBSU) October 14, 2018 Do you really love it? Haunting of hill house is making me terror vomit in joyful confusion. So I love it. — SpookyLukeyð» (@RupaulFTompkins) October 13, 2018 Someone start a support group. Who is watching the Haunting of Hill House because I need to talk about it , potentially in the middle of the night when I can't sleep because I'm now afraid of the dark — Katelyn â­ï¸â­ï¸ (@Now_Voyageur) October 15, 2018 Yeah, you should stop. It's going to give me a fucking anxiety attack — suzanne (@boy_vomit) October 14, 2018 Don't watch it at night! I have made a critical error: I have continued to watch #HauntingofHillHouse after dark, and uh, I am seriously regretting it. pic.twitter.com/E8qnTzqQTs — Spooky Steph (@WriteOnSteph) October 14, 2018
  6. Last week, Google launched the Pixel 3 and 3 XL and everyone has been excited about it. The Pixel 2 was an amazing device, but was in the news for all the wrong reasons at its launch due to issues with its display panel. With the Pixel 3, we definitely hope that Google has improvised the panel and has made sure that there will no longer be any shortcomings. To see how much Google has improved the display, DisplayMate has run some measures and standards to tell us how the Pixel 3 XL display stacks up against the competition. DisplayMate has shared its findings and has given the Pixel 3 XL an A+ rating, the highest possible. Usually, it is Samsung's flagship phones that get the highest possible rating. © BGR The study is extremely in-depth and hence we've covered the most important points. The new Pixel 3 XL comes with three colour modes: Natural Mode, Boosted Mode, and Adaptive Mode. According to DisplayMate, "Each Pixel 3 XL OLED display is individually calibrated at the factory. Since the Pixel 3 XL supports two Standard Color Gamuts it performs Accurate Calibrated Color Management so the colours appear correctly and accurately based on the on-screen image content." In terms of viewing angles, a 30 per cent angle will decrease brightness on a smartphone display by up to per cent. On the Pixel 3 XL, it down to just 28 per cent while the iPhone XS Max comes in at 25 per cent and the Note9 at 27 per cent. © Digital Trends The Pixel 3 XL display has a maximum brightness of 424 nits, while the Note9 is able to produce 700+ nits of peak brightness. But, the Pixel 3 XL has the lowest screen reflectance at just 4.3 per cent, the lowest DisplayMate has ever measured on a smartphone. The report says, Google has improved the display on multiple quality parameters, including 'Absolute Picture Quality' and 'Absolute Color Accuracy'. This has been achieved by implementing 'Precision Factory Display Calibration', While nobody is saying the Pixel 3 lineup has THE best display right now, it sure is at par with the competition. As far as having a speciality is concerned, the series already owns the camera department. Source: DisplayMate
  7. If you haven't noticed by now, we are kind of obsessed with Vicky Kaushal. And considering just how bright his star has been shining recently- what with his incredible performances in 'Raazi', 'Sanju' and 'Manmarziyaan' this year, firmly putting him on Bollywood's map- it's not surprising to see so many people fawning over him. The fact that he is a great actor isn't surprising, after all, anyone who has seen 'Masaan' can vouch for his talent and acting skills. What has been less expected, and highly refreshing, has been his impressive style game. Be it his clothes or his shoes, Vicky has become somewhat of a fashion icon. In fact, his shoe game has recently been so strong, that we can't help but take styling inspiration from him.

  8. You can agree with this or not, but the Indian education system is flawed. It gives more importance to grades and marks than knowledge. Mugging and rote learning have always been the prefered tools to score more marks, instead of actual learning and understanding of what is being taught. But, Singapore is all set to bring a much-needed change in its education system and the whole world needs to learn something from them. © BCCL From writing on your palms, using a transparent ink pen, hiding chits in your shoes, playing dumb charades inside the exam hall to help your friend, mugging syllabus overnight, begging teachers for extra marks, counted and recounted marks in hopes that the numbers will magically increase, we've all been there and done that. Singapore's Education Minister Ong Ye Kung has announced that from next year onwards, report cards will not indicate student rankings. According to a report by the WEF (World Economic Forum), Singapore is trying to bring a change in their education system, wherein marks will be replaced by homework, quizzes and discussions, as the preferred methods to evaluate a student's performance. © BCCL What's more, exams for students of classes 1st and 2nd will be abolished. In the report it's mentioned, "Older primary and secondary students will also study in a less competitive environment. Marks for each subject will be rounded off to the nearest whole number — without decimal places — to lower the emphasis on academic success." The ministry wants students to focus on their learning progress instead of being overly concerned about comparisons. While, we will continue to pressurize ourselves for IITs, IIMs and other kids to score good grades starting class 1st; Singapore has decided to play a role model for other nations with the latest reform in their education system.
  9. In a historic move today, Uttar Pradesh Minister Sidharth Nath Singh announced that Allahabad has now been renamed to Prayagraj. The move was in a pendulum state for a while, ever since CM Yogi Adityanath had announced that the name change was being contemplated. The move was welcomed and placed ahead of the beginning of the ' Kumbh Mela '. Social media obviously has a lot of opinions around the decision. It should have been 'Prayaaga' not #Prayagraj. But i'll still clap for @myogiadityanath for doing it. I don't care if its officially 'Prayagraj'. I am going to call it Prayaaga. Names like 'Allahabad', 'Bakhtiyarpur' reek of blood on the Islamic sword that swung for centuries. — Srinivas Duvvuri (@s_duvvuri) October 16, 2018 Prayag is the erstwhile name of Allahabad that was changed by Akbar after he implemented a religion called "Deen E Ilaahi". Logically it is fair to rename this place based on its history. The hue and cry of some people make no sense. — Rapunzel (@WaggishNushki) October 16, 2018 If Madras cn bcm Chennai, Bombay can bcm Mumbai,Victoria terminus can bcm CST, Why can't Allahabad bcm Prayagraj? Prayag is the original name of the city since vedic times,Why nobody questioned whn Calcutta was renamed to Kolkata although ppl wr dying of starvation n riots in WB? — Nisha (@niissh) October 15, 2018 While the move has been welcomed by a lot of people, some people on social media feel that the attention meant for this change could have utilised for making other crucial changes in the country and the state. #Prayagraj Allahabad is all i will continue to call..... Focus on real issues. Suck gimmicks wont work — PrimeMinister(India) (@HaveAGud_tym) October 16, 2018 Exactly I still call Madras, Bangalore, Calcutta, Bombay, Mohali and Now it will always be Allahabad no matter what these governments only are trying to appease their vote bank nothing else — Punjabi Rooh (@PunjabiRooh) October 16, 2018 And then, there are some who find humour in everything. can I changed my name to Neeta Ambani? will that make me a billionare ? #Prayagraj — Main Hoon Na (@neo_pac) October 16, 2018 Modi Ji : Rupee is falling continuously, what should we do to fix it? Yogi : Rupee Ka naam badal kar Kuwaiti Dinar rakh do#Prayagraj — Siona Gogoi (@AtomicBlow) October 15, 2018 Well, who knew that when Shakespeare said 'what's in a name'?, little did he know that centuries later, a name could divide people like this. We agree, it will take a while for anyone and everyone to adjust to this name change, but can the Government now focus on more crucial issues at hand as well?

  11. Almost everyone dreams of being super-rich one day, and that's mostly a common goal for everyone. Who wouldn't want to be a millionaire and have an extravagant and lavish life? I will tell you who– someone who's already a multi-millionaire and still prefers living an ordinary life. Quite commendable, if you think about it. The person in question is the legendary actor Chow Yun-fat, who says he lives on just $100 a month and even plans to give away his $714 million fortune to charity. What a guy! Twitter While promoting his movie, 'Project Gutenberg', he opened up about his lifestyle, which is honestly so unexpected for a millionaire. He said, “My dream is to be a happy and normal person.” He went on, “The hardest thing in life is not about how much money you earn, but how to keep a peaceful mindset and live the rest of your life in a simple and carefree manner.” Words to live by, tbh! He said he doesn't like spending any money on himself and would rather spend it doing charity work. He also said he eats at street food stalls and takes public transport as much as he can. The best thing about this is that he also claimed he had used his Nokia phone – probably a flip phone – for 17 years and the only reason he upgraded to a smartphone was because the Nokia phone stopped working. Side note – Apple please take note and make phones that last almost two decades, that will be great! While a lot of us dream of the day where we would shop without even looking at the price tag, the guy who can actually afford to do it prefers shopping at discount stores instead. He said, “I don't wear clothes for other people. As long as I think it's comfortable, then it's good enough for me.” It's great to see that even after being in the film industry for 40 years, he's still so down to earth and humble. We really need more people like him in the world. Moreover, since he and his wife Jasmine Tan have no children, they plan on leaving it all to charity. The couple also established their own charity several years ago and even do a lot of charity work in their spare time. Basically, he has earned so much money but he still believes the best use of it will be to help others. He's known for acting in movies like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Bulletproof Monk and Crazy Rich Asians among others.
  12. From sharing jokes on the field to coming to each other's aid at media interactions, the world of cricket is not new to bromance between fellow cricketers. When it comes to Indian cricket, the camaraderie between KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya is something that stands out in the current crop of cricketers. A similar chemistry came to the fore recently, when Yuvraj Singh and Zaheer Khan were seen spending quality time along with their better halves on a holiday. Accompanied by their respective wives Hazel Keech and Sagarika Ghatge, Yuvi and Zak have kept the social media buzzing with their regular updates on Instagram from the Maldives.

The trip was organised by Sagarika in a bid to celebrate her hubby Zaheer's 40th birthday. Later, the likes of Ajit Agarkar and Ashish Nehra, too, joined them with their respective families. But, it's clearly Yuvi and Zak who stood out for their bromance.

  13. Buses and cab services are meant for our convenience, but sadly, many of us think twice and sometimes thrice before sitting in them. At times, we even skip them for reasons that aren't hidden from anyone. On days when we do take cabs, the first thing our parents tell us is "Share the cab details with us" or "Send us the exact location." But, thanks to Santosh, a lot of people will now feel safer while calling for a cab. Pexels Santosh is an Uber driver, who just like any other ordinary cabbie was doing his job of dropping people to their desired location. But, the reason we're talking about him is extraordinary. It was around 1 AM when Santosh dropped a woman and her mother at their destination. When he realised that the gate to their residence was shut, he refused to leave them alone and waited with them for 1.5 hours until they got inside their house. The woman took to social media to thank him for his actions. hey @Uber_India , wanted to tell you about your driver Santosh. Last night the place we were staying had it's gate was closed. It was 1 AM. He refused to let us go & waited for 1.5 hours till we got in. Kudos to him. Mom and I eternally grateful pic.twitter.com/tIjz9n2A8O — Priyashmita Guha (@priyashmita) October 14, 2018 In fact, in her comments, the woman even mentioned how the passenger of his next ride was getting angry, but he said: "I am sorry but I cannot leave them." As a driver, it wasn't his job to wait and could have easily ended his trip and driven away. But, as a human, he did his job and we respect him for that. Honestly, he deserves more than a 5-star rating. However, Santosh isn't the only hero in our society who is out there protecting women. A few days ago, a Mumbai driver and conductor made the whole bus wait at 1.30 AM in the night, until one of the female passengers found an auto.
  14. Not all heroes wear capes, some shout 'Thain Thain' to scare the criminals when their pistol gets jammed. We're not talking about a Rajinikanth movie, this actually happened in Uttar Pradesh's Sambhal district. A team of UP cops were out on an encounter and chasing goons, when they realised their pistols were jammed. Now, this is a major problem and definitely a serious concern. But, fear not when the UP police is here. They had the perfect solution to this problem - shout 'thain thain' instead to scare the criminals. #WATCH: Police personnel shouts 'thain thain' to scare criminals during an encounter in Sambhal after his revolver got jammed. ASP says, 'words like 'maaro & ghero' are said to create mental pressure on criminals. Cartridges being stuck in revolver is a technical fault'. (12.10) pic.twitter.com/NKyEnPZukh — ANI UP (@ANINewsUP) October 13, 2018 Well, who said you need guns for gunshots when you can do the job by making the sound from your mouth? Speaking to ANI, the ASP said the pistol got jammed due to a technical glitch. He further said, words like 'maaro, maaro, ghero, ghero' create mental pressure on the criminals. Reportedly, a policeman was injured and the team managed to arrest one of the criminals after shooting him in his leg. While their mission was successful as they managed to catch the criminal, Twitter had a field day, tripping over the UP cops shouting 'thain thain'.

  15. Ever since leading India to the ICC Under-19 World Cup title, Prithvi Shaw has taken huge strides to establish himself as one of the most exciting young talents in the country. His artistry with the willow was in full display during the U-19 World Cup, which was followed by an impressive stint in the Indian Premier League (IPL) earlier this year. Tipped as the next Sachin Tendulkar, Shaw made a sensational debut for Team India when he smashed a brilliant 134 in the first Test against West Indies in Rajkot. In the process, he became the youngest Indian batsman to score a ton on his Test debut. He, then, followed it up with a quickfire 70 in the first innings of the second Test in Hyderabad. © BCCL While India blanked a hapless Windies 2-0 in the Test series, it was undoubtedly the 18-year-old who stood out amongst some of the biggest names in international cricket. Scoring 237 runs in three innings against the visiting side, Shaw deservingly bagged the Man of the Series award in his maiden stint with the senior team. However, as Shaw continues to hog the limelight, there are other youngsters who are quietly going about their business in the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy. With bare minimum spotlight and no fanfare, these young guns have taken the tournament by storm - once again highlighting the immense talent on display in India's domestic circuit: Rahul Desraj Chahar © Twitter The younger brother of Team India's upcoming seamer Deepak Chahar, Rahul rose to prominence earlier this year when Mumbai Indians shelled out a whopping Rs 1.9 crore (19 times of his base price) during the Indian Premier League (IPL) auctions. While he didn't get enough game time to prove his mettle, the 19-year-old has taken the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy by storm. Far away from the spotlight and fanfare, the 19-year-old has been quietly going about his business in the domestic 50-over tournament. Plying his trade with Rajasthan, the youngster was seen bamboozling the opposition batsmen with his mystery leg spin. In the nine matches he played, the young leggie claimed 20 scalps and is currently placed third in the list of leading wicket-takers this season. Though his side crashed out of the tournament, Rahul's brilliant outing surely makes him one of the most exciting young talents in the country. Shubman Gill © BCCL Arguably one of the highly-rated talents in the list of India's next generation cricketers, Shubman Gill has been busy impressing everyone one tournament after another. His penchant for big runs during India's triumphant U-19 World Cup run was in full display. And then, he justified his Rs 1.8-crore price tag with some sublime performances for the Kolkata Knight Knight Riders in this year's IPL season. Continuing his marauding run, the 19-year-old has been seen going hammer and tongs in the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy. Playing for Punjab, the right-hander amassed 418 runs including three fifties and a hundred in the seven matches he played this season. His brilliant knock of 115 runs was the reason why Punjab managed to edge past Himachal Pradesh in one of their group games. While Punjab could only manage to win 4 out of their eight matches before bowling out of the tournament, young Shubman's artistry with the willow undeniably reminded everyone what this young lad brings to the table. Varun Chakravarthy © TNPL While prominent names in the domestic circuit continue to garner spotlight, there have been players like Varun Chakravarthy who continue to lurk in the shadows despite proving their mettle, time and again. His spin bowling prowess was in full display during the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) where he established himself as Siechem Madurai Panthers' secret weapon. If his impressive TNPL outing got people talking, Chakravarthy's exploits in the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy has once again highlighted his ability to perform for his team. Playing for Tamil Nadu, the rising star has taken 22 wickets in nine appearances this season. His five-wicket haul against the Services also paved way for Tamil Nadu's 83-run win over Services in one of their group games. Though he is regarded as an all-rounder, it is Chakravarthy's majestic spin bowling that has allowed him to turn heads in the domestic circuit. From bowling a straighter one, flipper to a zooter, this budding cricketer boasts it all (five cunning variations in total). Ishan Kishan © Twitter A wicket-keeper and left-handed opening batsman from Jharkhand, young Ishan Kishan has come a long way since leading India to the runners-up position at the 2016 U-19 World Cup in Bangladesh. His attacking batting style and brilliant glovework earned him an IPL debut after Gujarat Lions secured his services during the auctions in 2016. He was then roped in by Mumbai Indians and has gone on to become a vital cog for Rohit Sharma's side. Kishan's ability to aid his team once again came to the fore in the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy. The youngster has been seen in a sublime form while playing for Jharkhand in the tournament. In eight matches he has played so far, the 20-year-old has scored 384 runs including three fifties and a hundred this season. Leading Jharkhand in the tournament, the youngster played a captain's knock in a Group C match against Assam where he scored a sensational 91-ball 139 to secure an eight-wicket win for his side.
