Even though CSK is called the King of IPL and winning their third IPL title in their comeback year (2018), this IPL will give overwhelming happiness and joy to their fans throughout the world. Since they played only one match in the comeback season, this season is going to be more emotional for both the franchise and fans. Chennai fans will celebrate every match played in M. A. Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai like a festival!

Despite having Cricket World Cup happening right after the IPL and Lok Sabha election happening alongside the IPL, this season is going to be very tough for every IPL team.

The coincidence’s between the fourth edition of IPL and ISL!!!!

The synchronism between the “fourth edition” of IPL and ISL is far beyond our imaginary synchronizations!

We all are aware that IPL is the first super successful sporting league in India and the most prolific T20 league on our planet.
But in time, ISL has grown to a far more lot than what the creator’s and owner’s of ISL imagined, in a span of less than half a decade.

IPL and ISL are two different tournaments. The coincidences between these two are making us feel mesmerised by the similar events happened in the fourth season of both Indian Premier League (2011) and Indian Super League (2017-18)!

Chennaiyin. F. C has won the fourth season of ISL for the second time just like their brothers (Chennai Super Kings) from another league who won their second IPL in the fourth IPL edition.

This small comparison between the 4th season of IPL and ISL has led me to make this synchronisation article.

1) The fourth edition of IPL and ISL added 2 new teams, making the tournament a new ten-team format.

2) Bengaluru (RCB, BFC) finished first and Chennai (CSK, CFC) took the second spot in the league standings in both the leagues!

RCB and CSK had 9 winnings in the league standing. Along with them stood the Mumbai Indians. But, CSK and RCB jointly thrashed MI in the qualifying final 1 and 2 matches respectively.
BFC and CFC had lost only 4 matches in the league stage.

3) Chennai collided head-to-head with Bengaluru for the first time in a final match in the fourth edition only.

4) CSK and CFC have won one trophy in their respective tournament before this season.
CSK reached the final for the third time in IPL and CFC for the second time in ISL.
RCB fought hard to reach the IPL final for the second time while BFC reached the final on their maiden ISL season.

5) Chennai crossed the 200 run mark setting a tough target of 206 for RCB to chase, which is the first 200+ score in an IPL final.
The first goal was scored at the 9th minute by BFC which is the fastest goal till date in an ISL final.

6) RCB and BFC played well throughout the season. Even though they could not win the final battle their players proved they are the best in that season.
RCB’s Chris Gayle won the “Player of the series”, while BFC’s skipper Sunil Chhetri won the “Hero of the League”.

7) CSK won their home match and lost the away match against RCB. Since the final happened in Chennai, they again defeated RCB to lift the IPL trophy for the second time.
CFC lost the home match and won the away match against BFC. Since the final happened in Bengaluru, they again defeated BFC to lift the ISL trophy for the second time.
Maybe RCB would have won their maiden IPL title if the match was played at Bengaluru and BFC their debut ISL title if the match was conducted in Chennai!

There were even similarities how BFC and CFC paved their way to the ISL final.

1) It was the Indian football players who helped their team to qualify for the final!

Semi-Final first leg:
BFC scored no goal against FC Pune City ending the game in 0-0.
CFC’s Anirudh Thapa scored an equaliser against FC Goa making the score 1-1.
Semi-Final second leg:
BFC’s captain Sunil Chhetri scored his first hat-trick of this season, making his team enter the final with a 3-1 win against FCPC.
CFC’s Snipper Jeje Lalpekhlua scored two crucial goals after his form-out and Chennai’s local lad Dhanpal Ganesh scored his second goal in the tournament which also happened to be a header made off a set piece ending the game 3-0 in favour of CFC.
Finally, CFC took revenge on FC Goa who made CFC suffer in their first match of this season in their home ground with a score of 3-2.

2) It was not only the Indian players who scored the goals in the semi’s, but it was also the Indian Goal Keeper’s who stood strong by resisting the goals that will make the opponent team enter into the finals.
CFC’s Karanjit Singh and BFC’s Gurpreet Singh played a pivotal role in saving the goals of the opposition in the semi’s and both made one clean sheet for their team in the semi’s!

The losing legacy continues in ISL 2017-18:-

1) The team which has completed first in the ISL league standings has not been the favourites to snatch the ISL trophy.

2) The team that plays the ISL final on their home ground has never got a chance to lift and celebrate the ISL title in front of their home crowd.

While all the eyes were on the return of CSK in IPL after two eyes, surprisingly the CFC has bagged their second ISL trophy in a cool, calm, and composed manner.

Congrats Chennaiyin. F. C for winning the ISL 2017-18 title and let’s all #WhistlePodu for the Chennai Super Kings to perform well in the IPL 2018.

Can Indian Cricket fans wish for a more perfect Valentine day to celebrate the “Love for their Team”?

Indian cricket maniacs are enjoying Valentine’s day, not for one or two reasons. The Indian cricket enthusiasts are overwhelmed that the Indian national cricket team of various divisions are winning matches, trophies and also the hearts of their fans!
We have entered the last day of the second week of 2018’s second month, but Team India has triumphed many victories for the nation.

Even though the sport “Cricket” has a three-dimensional play – batting, bowling, and fielding, the current Indian National Cricket Team are rocking the whole world with a four-dimensional team:
i. Men in Blue,
ii. Women in Blue,
iii. Boys in Blue, and
iv. Blessed (Visual Impairment) Men in Blue.

All the four teams are getting love and support from their fans mainly because of the growth of the internet and social media!
The word LOVE has four alphabets and here are four lovable reasons for the Indian cricket lovers to enjoy this valentines day.

I. India Blind Cricket Team won the BCWC’18!

In the very first month of 2018, the India Blind Cricket Team grabbed the Blind Cricket World Cup (BCWC) for the second time beating the archrival Pakistan Blind Cricket Team in the final!
They are the second team after Pakistan to hold the BCWC twice. India has already met Pakistan in 2014 final to win their maiden BCWC Trophy.
They are the only Champions of Blind World T20 in 2012 & 2017, both the final happened against Pakistan hosted in Bengaluru. They have also won the maiden Blind T20 Asia Cup (2015) against Pakistan at Jawaharlal Nehru International Stadium, Kochi.
India played a major role in conducting the Blind Cricket World Cup, be it 40 over or T20I format tournament that they hosted the first two tournaments of BCWC and Blind World T20!
1st BCWC in New Delhi (1998).
2nd BCWC in Chennai (2002).
1st and 2nd Blind World T20 in Bangalore (2012 & 2017).

II. India U-19 Cricket Team won the U19CWC’18!

The very next month, the U-19 Indian Team clinched the U19 Cricket World Cup (U19CWC) under former Indian Cricket Team captain “Rahul the Wall”, who now serves as the U-19 coach. They became the first U-19 side to grab the U19CWC Trophy in four instances (2002, 2008, 2012, 2018).

The coincident between this U-19 India Team and India Blind Cricket Team is that they were unbeaten throughout their respective tournaments.

It was under the teenage Virat’s captaincy, U-19 Indian team lifted the Trophy in 2008. A decade has crossed but still, King Kohli is working hard on grabbing trophies and making his team, and teammates rank top positions in ICC rankings.

III. India Women Cricket Team won the ODI series against the Proteas Women Team in South Africa.

The Women in Blue has won the ODI series against the Proteas Women in SA and qualified in the round one of 2017–20 ICC Women’s Championship. Last year they were the runner-up of the 2017 Women’s Cricket World Cup held in England and Wales.
They were also the runner-up in the WCWC’05 in South Africa.
Women in Blue finished in the bottom four of the inaugural ICC Women’s Championship but that didn’t stop them reaching the 2017 World Cup Final.
They might not have grabbed the WCWC, but throughout the years, they were unbeaten in all the Asia Cup matches consisting of both 50 over and T20I.

IV. Indian Cricket Team getting No. 1 spot in Test and ODI ICC Rankings!

India retained their NO.1 ICC test ranking after winning the third test in India’s tour of South Africa. Even though Proteas won the test series, they can’t make the No.1 position in ICC Test Ranking list, thus Virat Kohli will retain the prestigious ICC Test Championship Mace which was before presented by former India captain and ICC Cricket Hall of Famer Sunil Gavaskar after India beat New Zealand by 321 runs in the third Test to clean sweep the series 3-0 in 12th October 2016.
Kohli became the second Indian after MS Dhoni and overall 10th test captain to grab the ICC Test Championship Mace in 2016!
Under MS Dhoni’ captaincy, India dethroned the No.1 spot from Australia and held the mace in 2010 & 2011.
Kohli said, “It’s an honour and a moment of great pride to receive the ICC Test Championship mace. To be recognised as the best in the traditional form of the game is as good as it gets for any team and stuff that dreams are made of,” after lifting his maiden ICC Test Mace.
From the introduction of the ICC Test Championship in 2001, Australia had the longest steak holding the No.1 Test spot and mace from 2002 to 2009.
On 28th March 2017, Indian test cricket team retained the ICC Test Championship mace and also won a cash award of $1 million for ensuring the top position in the MRF Tyres ICC Test Team rankings on the annual 1 April cut-off date. Again April 1st this year, the Indian test team will be rewarded $1 million by ICC for snatching the No.1 position in ICC Test ranking. This happened only because that India won the last test against the Proteas and if Proteas won the series for 3-0 they would have topped the ranking list, pushing Indian to No.2 position.

After the historic win for the Men in Blue, who won their maiden ODI series on South African soil, which was a battle that was fought for 25 years, Indian ODI team topped the ICC ODI Team Ranking beating the previous No.1 South African team.
With this ODI series win, India overtook Australia’s record of 8 consecutive series, having a streak of 9 wins from June’16!

14th edition of the Asia Cup will be hosted by India for the second time after the 1990–91 tournament. India Team is the defending champions (2016), but this time the tournament will be played in ODI format.
India won the inaugural Asia Cup in 1983 held at Sharjah, UAE. They have reached the final on 9 occasions and winning the Asia Cup Trophy 6 times.
India also won the inaugural Asia Cup (2016) played in T20I format by beating the hosts Bangladesh in final.
India won both the Asia Cup (1983 & 1995) hosted by the UAE.
The irony is that India and Pakistan have never met in an Asia Cup Final. The schedule of the 2018 ACC Asia Cup will be from September 15-30.

Let’s all wish our favourite team’s sportsman a healthy and fit life for their sporting career and a peaceful and happy personal life on this valentine’s day.INDIA

RoHIT keeps on moulding double-ton records more robust!

Till last week, cricket fanatics were busy counting the records created by Virat Kohli as captain, his ODI tons and test double centuries. All of a sudden Virat married the love of his life and the whole world was happy wishing the star couple!

Here is wishing the Cricket Superman Virat Kohli a happy married life and his Lois Lane “Anushka”!

India was about to meet SL in Mohali for second ODI after a terrible record defeat. SL demolished the new Indian batting order in the absence of Kohli and Rahane.
But the new Indian ODI skipper Hitman made outstanding batting innings in 2nd ODI that this Sri Lankan team would be afraid to make India bat the first innings if they have won the toss in any cricketing format.

Following the first ODI win against India in this ODI series in which SL won the toss and choose to bowl first, they again won the toss for the second time and made India bat the first innings.
They forgot the first test match against India in the last test series in which India bounced back after a weakening start and feared Sri Lanka with their skills to draw the match which they thought would win easily. The whole world praised Virat’s captaincy and added that Indian player’s performance was astounding and only a number one test team can make this massive come back.

Indian skippers/players have a very bad habit of defeating the opposing team in a very crucial manner if they showed their game. If Aussies are an expert in sledging during the game, I would say Indian cricketers are expert in exposing their talent on the fields.
We would never forget Yuvraj smashing 6 sixes in an over for the first time in a T20I in Stuart Broad’s over after having a dispute with Andrew Flintoff at the end of last over.

As a kid, I witnessed the Indian Bengal Tiger “Dada” waving his jersey defeating the British in the mighty Lord’s stadium and it is one of India’s greatest cricket moments in history.
As a teenager, I witnessed the world’s best captain MS Dhoni who keeps on getting cool after every win.
He is the first captain to kiss the inaugural ICC WC-T20 Trophy and also the first captain to grab both WC trophies – ODI & T20, thus making team India the first team that has grabbed all three WC trophies (60 over, 50 over, and 20 over)

At each situation, India has produced talented cricket captain who is very special in their way of playing the game and approach towards the game.
Now we all are witnessing the Chasing Expert also known as Run Machine grabbing trophies for the nation and working hard to make India stand first in all three formats of ICC ranking.
Whenever Kohli enters the ground he wouldn’t leave the field without creating a new record or breaking the old ones. He even digs out old records and breaks them which are created almost 7 decades ago.
Creating records as a batsman and as skipper, making tons in ODI, and creating double tons in the test are his recent hobbies!
People say he is in thirst for runs, but I think he is in thirst for arranging trophies for his nation!

When SL chooses to bowl first, they forgot Rohit’s 264 against SL on 13th Nov 2014.
Till now his highest ODI score of 264 runs is unbeaten! Further to this he also scored yet another double ton in an ODI against Aussies in 2013 which also happened in November month. He registered his name first in the book of batsman who made more than one double ton!

The first batsman to open the record book of scoring a double ton (ODI) is none other than the God of Cricket, “Sachin Tendulkar”. The Master Blaster was also the first batsman to remain not out after his maiden double ton. His biopic “Sachin – A Billion Dreams” was made under his banner name “200 Not Out” Productions!
The second batsman to register the name in this list was Sachin’s opening batsman partner Virender Sehwag, becoming the first Captain to score a double ton!
Rohit became the third Indian and cricketer to register his name in this legendary book of scoring ODI double ton, but nevertheless, we knew that he will add his name again for the second time the very next year.

Forget about test cricket runs because score a century or double ton is not a big thing because you will get more overs and lot more time.
When it comes to the white ball, scoring runs becomes crucial.
Scoring 50 runs in an ODI is somewhat easy but not very easy one. Converting a half-century to a century is not as easy as compared to making a half-century.
Sachin is the only cricketer to have 100 centuries comprising of 51 test tons and 49 ODI tons. Making ODI century is a big milestone for every cricketer. After the introduction of T20I players are keen on making a T20I century to show their batting skills. But still, the madness for making an ODI ton is damn high and has become toughened in the years due to the variety of bowling techniques shown by the bowlers!
And there is still some batsman like Virat Kohli who makes an ODI ton as a daily activity.
But when it comes to making a double ton, it’s a mammoth thing for even the world’s best batsman. Only 5 batsmen have scored double hundred in ODI. Among them, one is Rohit Sharma who has reached this height three times.

Rohit was made as the Indian ODI Team Captain for the first time because Kohli was given rest. It is definitely a disheartening day when India lost to SL in the first ODI! In fact, Dhoni and Kohli started their maiden Captaincy with a loss. But it’s all part of the sport.
The SL captain won the toss again and opted to bowl by keeping in mind the previous victory. This time he misjudged the Indian batting order and Rohit’s captaincy talent. But Sri Lanka learnt a lesson not to judge Indians with the play of a single inning. At the post-match presentation, the SL skipper Thisara Perera appreciated Rohit’s marvellous batting.
This became Rohit’s first century in Mohali beating the highest score in this ground by Kohli (154*) in New Zealand tour of India at Chandigarh on Oct 23, 2016.

The second wedding anniversary day for Rohit has turned into his first win as Indian Skipper and the day he made a double century for the third time.
He played hard with his bat to make a double ton and a win for his team. But he was damn lucky that his wife witnessed him enjoying with the bat and made his first double ton after their marriage and winning the game along the cheering Mohali crowd who was enjoying the sixer rain of Indian batsman.

Many men can’t even dream of scoring a double ton in ODI and no wife in the universe can get a better gift than her husband making a double century on their wedding anniversary that too witnessing with the naked eyes on the stands!
In the post-match presentation, he said he dedicates this double century to his wife, but was happier playing as an opening batsman and making the team reach a higher total and next to that only he enjoyed the win as a captain!

These are some of the charts Rohit wrote his name before hitting his third double ton!

When Rohit scored his maiden double ton (209) against the Aussie he made 16 sixers and 12 boundaries. He became the first India batsman to top the most number of six (16) in ODI sharing the spot with the Proteas’ ABD and Windies’ Gayle, who both play under Virat’s captaincy for RCB in the IPL!

He also tops the chart for making the highest number of fours (33) in ODI while opposing the Lankans and scored his ODI highest 264 at India’s home of cricket, the “Eden Gardens” Kolkata. The second place is shared by the Indian ex-opening duo Sachin and Sehwag who smashed 25 boundaries when they both scored their first and only double ton!

No one expected that India would provide such a massive target for the Lankans to chase after the first over was made maiden by the skipper Rohit.
The Indian Gabbar Dhawan was caught for 68 runs while attempting to hit the ball hard. The opening duo Dhawan and Rohit made 115 runs off 127 balls and Rohit didn’t even make his half-century at that time!

The new player Shreyas Iyer teamed with Rohit making a 213 runs partnership for the second wicket!
Rohit has four 200+ run partnership with Kohli. Three times for 2nd wicket pair and one time in 2014 for 3rd wicket pair.
All the four 200+ run partnership of Rohit and another batsman for the second wicket pair came in 2016 & 2017! The Mumbai Indian player Shreyas made his International ODI debut in the previous match and got out for 9.
But in this match, he paired up with his IPL skipper and made a 213 partnership off just 146 balls. Shreyas missed his maiden century by short of 12 runs was caught when he tried to hit the ball for a boundary!
The moment when the IPL rivalry CSK and MI fans enjoyed the most was when Dhoni came in as number 4 and he enjoyed Rohit making sixers! He got LBW soon. But the Mohali crowd witnessed a huge sixer by the Helicopter shot maker MS Dhoni. Then came Rohit’s another IPL mate Hardik Pandya, who has become a specialist if hitting hat-trick sixers in the recent times. In this match, he made only a boundary and was caught the last ball of the innings while trying for a sixer.
Mohali fans enjoyed the sixer and boundary rain by the Indian batsman’s while the social media caught fire of making memes, trolls and wishing Rohit’s most impressive batting. He got shifted to sports gear when he reached a century and took only 36 balls to convert his it into a double century, while he took 115 balls to reach 100!

Rohit completed his 50 runs with a four, 100 runs by running two runs, 150 by hitting a sixer, and finally 200 by running a single! He kissed the ring finger after making 100, 200 and showed to his wife!
He smashed a six to make India cross the 300 runs mark!

No batsman made mistake themselves to lose the wicket, everyone got out when trying to make a bigger shot! Dhawan, Shreys, Pandya was caught while attempting for a six and Dhoni was given LBW when trying to hit a sixer!
All the 5 Indian batsmen have made at least one four or one six in this innings!

Rohit has partnered with both Dhawan and Kohli providing twelve 100+runs partnership and nine 50+runs partnership with each partner.

India has scored 390+ runs in 6 instances so far (418, 413, 412, 404, 401, 392) .
This innings’ 392 run is the seventh highest total for India and became the highest total (ODI) of 2017 so far!
In 2017 Indian cricket team has 10 matches with 300+ runs levelling England’s first position.

In 1996, India was the last team among the top 8 cricket team to score 300+ ODI runs.
It took 283 ODI for India to reach first 300+ ODI runs. India’s first 300+ score was 305 for five against Pakistan in Sharjah in April 1996.
Now the “Men in blue” are the first to make 100 ODI matches with 300+ plus team total, becoming the first to achieve the feat, Australis stands second (96) on the list!
Out of these 100 matches, 46 came from home, secondly comes South Africa with 44 matches with 300+ total at home.

Rohit made his first double ton under Dhoni’s captaincy, second under Virat’s and third under his own! After scoring this third double ton the Indian opener registered his name in many record books.

1) Rohit tops the list for most sixes (ODI) in a calendar year for India – 45*
Rohit – 45* (2017)
Sachin – 41 (1998)
Ganguly – 35 (2000)
Dhoni – 34 (2005)

2) He created a record of scoring 150+ run in 5 years consecutively.
2013 – 209 vs AUS
2014 – 264 vs SL
2015 – 150 vs SA
2016- 171 vs AUS
2017 – 208* vs SL
This is also his highest score in that calendar year!
He is the third batsman to have five 150+ runs in ODI after Sachin Tendulkar and David Warner.

3) He adds his name second to the book of most hundreds (6*) in a calendar year by Indian. Sachin leads the record with 9 tons in 1998. Kohli also has 6 hundred this year.

4) He entered the 9th place in the book of most ODI sixers sharing the spot with former Aussies captain Ricky Ponting.

5) He became the first captain to remain not out after making a double ton.

6) With this third double ton, he joins the league of most 180+ scores (3) in ODI with Martin Guptill!
Vivian Richards and Sachin Tendulkar have two 180+ score each!

7) Rohit became the first skipper to take fewest ODI to score a maiden double ton – 2!
He also joins Virat and Gambhir who took 2 matches to make their maiden ton as Indian skipper.

8) People say that the 13th day of a month is auspicious for evil. But in case of Lankan cricketers, Rohit is the deadly evil.
On 13th Nov 2014, he smashed his highest ODI personal off 151 balls. Again on 13th Dec 2017, he smashed his double ton as a skipper off 151 balls.

9) He created a new ODI history for making 100+ runs twice in last ten over and both happened against SL.
110 runs – 2014
107 runs – 2017

Thank God Virat was not in this game, or else the Virat-Rohit duo will give goosebumps to the Indian fans while running in the crease.
And just imagine what if Virat joined the game with much anger after the first match terrible batting collapse. Already he was in good batting form and is in splendid form against SL and was tensed that he missed his maiden 300 in test due to childish act of the Lankans who was afraid of Kohli’s batting and captaincy performance. There were chances that the total would have been higher if Kohli played along Rohit in this innings.

When the commentators were debating whether Rohit would make a double century under his own captaincy, he was focused on setting a tremendous total for SL to chase. He feared the Lankan bowlers not with single or twos and not even by making boundaries. He was aiming to make every ball fly towards the crowd irrespective of the direction. I was getting fear that the ball may turn high hitting the edge, but he was busy giving goosebumps to the Lankans. I think they would not have slept peacefully that night.
At first, when Rohit made four consecutive six in Lakmal over, I thought he was wishing Yuvraj a belated bday in his style. He became the second Indian after Zaheer to hit four consecutive sixes in an ODI. Zaheer made the record against Zimbabwe in 2000.
The funny connection between these two records is that there was a wide ball provided by the bowlers who can’t handle the heat of Indian batsman.

In the test, Kaip Dev (1990) has hit four consecutive sixes. Dhoni (2006) and Hardik Pandya (2017) has hit three continuos sixers.

At this time we should be proud of the new Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya who has hit hat-trick sixer for four times in four months:
1) 4 Jun’17 – v Imad Wasim in the CT league match INDvsPAK;
2) 18 Jun’17 -v Shadab Khan in the CT final INDvsPAK;
3) 3 Aug’17 – v Pushpakumara in the 2nd Test, India tour of Sri Lanka;
4) 17 Sep’17 -v Adam Zampa in the 1st ODI, Australia tour of India.

Rohit batting stats were far behind our synchronising thoughts. Since13/12 is his wedding date and is that the reason he made 13 fours and 12 sixes in this innings?

Rohit is the only batsman who has carried the ball for all 50 overs of an ODI that ended in a victory!
“Carry the ball” is a term used in the cricketing sport denoting that the opening batsman remains alive throughout the innings.
Sunil Gavaskar, Sehwag, Dravid and Pujara are the other Indians who have achieved this milestone but in the tests.

There is no more doubt that this “Hitman” can make a triple ton in ODI! The day is no far longer for this double ton hero who done it thrice when the whole world was just dreaming about it!

Virat Kohli’s half-ton of centuries!

Virat Kohli is a human for millions, but he is a Superman for billions. Not the DC Superman, he is a self-made Super (Sport) Man. Because of his extraordinary performance on the ground, people now have a doubt, “Is he really an alien”?

I planned to wish Kohli for his 29th bday by making an article about him, but I postponed it to publish after winning the Paytm Cup (T20I) versus New Zealand. And again I delayed just to know about his #One8crew event.
On 9th November in his hometown New Delhi, he launched his new sports clothing brand “One8” worth Rs. 110 crore in collaboration with Puma, a German multinational company and became the first Indian sportsman to sign a deal worth Rs. 100 crore with a single brand.
Just like Usain Bolt, Puma sponsors and makes all the customised merchandise for Kohli.
The costliest deal in Indian cricket history is Kohli’s bat (Genius VK 18) deal with MRF.
Adidas signed Kohli as their brand ambassador in 2013 after sponsoring Sachin for 16 years. In 2016 they launched a new cricket campaign with Kohli in India targeting the ICC WT20 WC (host – India) called #FeelLoveUseHate. Later he was removed from the brand ambassador of the company in 2017 and thus Puma India grabbed Virat with a great deal.
Here I finally published my article in a manner to celebrate his half-ton century in International Cricket!

We all know that VK captained Indian Cricket Team won the U-19 Cricket World Cup’08 played in Malaysia and grabbed the second title for India.
He was the one who carried the Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar on his shoulder and walked the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai, after the victorious win of the ICC Cricket World Cup’11 after 28 years.
Virat said, “He has carried the burden of the nation for 21 years. It is the time we carried him on our shoulders!
We obviously would remember Kohli kissing his bat and showing it towards his girlfriend Anushka Sharma after scoring a test ton on the Aussie soil against them, and Indian Cricket Team exit from the World Cup’15 when Virat scored one run against Australia in the second semi-final match. Next day when Kohli landed in Mumbai, he was seen with his girlfriend Anushka Sharma holding her hands. This was an act of a pure gentlemanship. He may be the aggression King, but this proved he too have a soft side for his close ones.
When media and many other social pages blamed his girlfriend for not performing well in matches, Kohli for the first time got aggressive on his social platform on 28th March’16 and slammed everyone by posting, “Shame on people for trolling Anushka Sharma non-stop. Have some compassion. She has always only given me positivity.” on his social profile
Usually, celebrities will think of the royal image and dignity before sharing their personal things in public. Even in this matter, Kohli stands as an exceptional one.

We all knew him as an aggressive sportsman/captain on the field, off the field he is a brilliant businessman and a philanthropist too!

On 30th March’13, he started a charitable foundation called “Virat Kohli Foundation” (VKC) that aim towards the development of underprivileged kids. On the same day, the first charity football match was conducted by Virat’s VKC to raise funds for Magic Bus Organisation.
May’14 – VKF was part of a charity auction conducted by eBay and Save the Children, India.
On March’16 he visited Abhalmaya old-age home in Pune during his IPL match and vowed to offer his complete support and take care of the foundation during the rest of the year.
May’16 – VKC partnered with Smile Foundation to host the biggest Charity Gala Dinner to support children and youth empowerment,
On August’17 Kohli donated a signed bat of his to the Shahid Afridi Foundation.

26 August’14 – Became the co-owner of ISL’s FC Goa.
20 November’14 – Revealed his own clothing brand “Wrogn” in collaboration with the youth fashion platform, founded by Anjana Reddy, Universal Sportsbiz Pvt Ltd.
2015 – Invested Rs. 90 crore to partner with Franchise India to launch “Chisel”, which is a chain of gym and fitness centres aimed to have centres all over the country.
He has his own hotel “Nueva” in Delhi.
November’17 he inaugurated “Indian Sports honour” an initiative of honouring sportspersons from various fields.

Kohli has not even completed a 10-year cycle in international cricket, but he has earned the name “best batsman of all cricketing time period across all the three formats”!
He is called as the Run Machine, King Kohli, and Chasing Expert, and Aggression Captain.
Apart from on-field and off-field, Kohli has sculptured himself each day and every match of his life which was all his father’s dream.
Kohli used to do a batting at the age of three and ask his father to bowl him seeing the matches on TV. When he was nine years old the neighbour people suggested his father that Kohli should join in a professional cricket coaching centre seeing his talents in Gully Cricket. In 9th grade, he changed his school just for the sake of getting better sports practise in the new school. His father was the one who drove him to practice every day and was his biggest support.
Unfortunately, his father was passed away due to a brain stroke on 18 Dec’06.

His number 18 in his jersey is not his number but the memories and the dream of his father. Virat is superstitious and he has agreed that to the public.

In a 2006 Ranji Trophy match between Delhi and Karnataka (in Feroz Shah Kotla stadium), Delhi was under a very critical situation of 14-4 and Virat ended the day’s play on 40. The sad news came that his father Prem Kohli (54) passed away at 3 AM due to brain stroke after being bed-ridden for a month.
When he came back to play for the day his teammates were surprised and said he will be more needed at home, but he was much more needed in the match.
But he said he wanted to bat!
Before lunch, he was given out at 90, being played for 281 minutes and faced 238 balls. His play has already saved his team from trouble. But the replay showed that the bat had brushed the pad.
At around 12 PM, he watched the replay of his dismissal in the dressing room once and convinced that he was not out, shook his head, quietly removed his pads and told his teammates he was now heading back.
His teammates were sad he missed a ton and the opponent players praised his commitment towards his team.

This was the day when an 18-year-old boy transformed from a sports teenager into an aggressive machine.
He could have left the match and went to his home, but he didn’t go because he wanted to make his dad’s dream come true and make him proud of his play.
It’s not easy to control emotions and concentrate on a gameplay, but Virat beautifully played his game with at most dedication towards the goal of his father.
People may think he loved Cricket more than his dad, but his dad was the one who fed cricket into Virat by taking him to the coaching each day of his life.
His decision of playing the game for his team that day has made him the man today, who the country loves and who is an inspiration for millions all over the world. People call him the best chaser only because he chased the dreams of his father that day.
Virat’s mother said, he has completely changed after that day.

Indian cricket team has produced differently talented captains for our country in the different cricketing era. Each of them had their own captainship skills and added honour to the Country in their own styles.
When Dhoni retired from the test Kohli was made captain and he slammed every test match with his default aggression both as a batsman and captain.
When Dhoni opted out of captaincy completely, not only the Indian cricket fans but fans all over the world had a question, “Will Kohli takes the future Indian Team a step ahead of Dhoni “?
If Dhoni is called the best finisher in a match/innings. According to me, Kohli is the best finisher in a series/tournament.
Kohli has a bad habit of having a bad start of a series, but he closes the series by unleashing his maximum potential both in batting and captainship.

Only a number one test team can give a massive come back with the help of our aggressive captain’s gameplay.
His bold move of declaring has stunned the whole cricketing world. This is a fine example of how he trusts his teammates and how confident he is of winning the match for India.

Kohli didn’t have a great background nor he was from a family of cricketing stars.
But today he stands as an example of how to manage the business, sportsmanship, personal life and social works equally.
He has transformed from a normal sportsman to a supremely fit sportsman after knowing that only cricketing skills are not enough to play the game in the fields.
He is not focusing only on his game, but he is honouring other sportsperson and asking the youth of India to play all sports.

If DC Comics is making a separate universe for sports personalities, I’m sure Kohli will be chosen as the “Superman” where the symbol ‘S’ will represent “aggression” on Krypton in that comic version.

Every time when he comes to play I think of what record is he going to make or what record he is going to break.
But every time he comes to play he is carrying his father and his father’s dream on his shoulder as jersey number 18! 18th December 2006 was the date his father passed away when he was only 18 years old and that’s why he used to have number 18 in his jersey; car numbers; his VKF logo; his new brand One8 with Puma. He symbolically means he is nothing without his father!
Kohli is now a combination of talent, hard work, dedication, commitment, leadership, gentleman, philanthropist and all these are making his father’s dream come true in each and every act he does.

Unknown facts about Baahubali!

On this same day, 10th of July 2015 Baahubali The Beginning was released. Here are some of the coincidence moments that took place in both the parts.

1) Both the film starts with Rajamatha Sivagami Devi’s voice because she is the only stronger person in this King’s family after the death of the King Dharmendra Baahubali and his wife.

2) In the first part, when Sivagami Devi holds Mahendra Baahubali, at the back we could see the sun was rising up and she named the baby as Amarendra Baahubali. In the second part, when she names the boy baby of Amarendra as Mahendra Baahubali, we could see the burning fire of the Kingdom in the back.
This symbolically means he is the next hope and leader of Magilmathi.

3) In first part when Amarendra Baahubali is born, her mother died giving birth to him and Sivagami Devi names the child as “Baahubali”.
In second part when Devasena gave birth to a boy child, her husband Amarendra Baahubali was killed and Sivagami Devi names as the child as “Mahendra Baahubali”.

4) Katappa was ordered to kill Amarendra by Sivagami Devi. But Katappa is the one who misunderstood the marriage invitation of Bhallala Deva for Baahubali. the second part would not have not the same plot we saw in the movie. Thus Katappa was not intentionally linked into Amarendra’s dead. But his wrong assumption made him kill Amarendra Baahubali.

5) When Avantika got an injury in her leg, Shivu says to her, “Avantika now you are mine. Hereafter everything that belongs to you also belongs to me.
The same dialogue Amarendra says to Devasena when he got a message from her mother to bring Devasena as a captive to Magilamadhi.

6) In the starting of the first part, Bhallala Deva’s father asks him, can we kill Sivagami Devi. But he interrupts him by saying you have drunk more than enough. But it was all acting in front of others. He too wanted to kill his mother for giving equal importance to Amarendra and had planned to make him the King of Magilmathi. Just like his father, he too is a mentally disordered person who bowed a bow at the back of his own mother. This act shows how cruel he is to kill his own mother and how coward he is hit a person from the back, and how afraid is he to kill a baby. Because he knows that if the baby is left alive, he may come alive one day and kill him and his father for killing Amamrendra Baahubali.
Just like his father, Prince badra too is a coward, who asked help to Katappa when Shivudu was beating him.

7) Bhallala Deva can never match the wisdom and power of Baahubali not even in a single aspect. He is more than a coward. Amarendra beat Kallakeya to death, but Bhallala Deva killed him from the back. Is attacking from the back sign of a good warrior?
He knows he is not capable of Baahubali that’s why he always get jealous of him and wanted to kill him. But he asked Katappa to kill Amarendra because it’s impossible for Bhallala Deva to go in a one onto one with Amarendra.
After Katappa stabbed Amarendra, Bhallala Deva made a proud walk came in the dark which symbolically means the rise of the dark.
He stabbed Amarendra in the chest with a hand axe after knowing that he is dead. This act defined him as the king of cowards.

8) Bhallala Deva has the same gene of his father Pingalathevar. Wanted to get the throne without having a kind heart and wanted only to obtain the throne.

9) Mahendra helped his mother by breaking a giant Lingam, lifted it single handed and played it under the waterfalls.
Amarendra helped his mother not get attacked by the ferocious elephant. So moved the Vinayagar Chariot to hit that elephant and thus her prayer did not get interrupted because of Amarendra’s intelligent plan.

10) Mahendra decapitated Prince Badra because he told bad about Devasena. His father killed the new Commander of Magilmadhi when he touched many women’s body and tried to touch his wife. So, Amarendra decapitated his head with his sword.

11) Amarendra runs over a sliding wooden support of a water dam to lock the
Like this Mahendra runs over a sliding wooden support to break the chain of the wooden door!

12) Amendra used fire to burn the Kalakeya army in the first part. He uses water to wash away Palangiyar army in the second part.

13) Mahendra Baahubali’s other name is Shivudu. When Amarenda was loving Devasena, he renamed his name as Shivu himself to hide the identity that he is Magilmathi’s Princess.

Interval Block:
1st part : – Bhallala Deva’s 100 feet golden statue is risen up. But people will be chanting Baahubali’s name.
2nd part :- Bhallala Deva was name as the King of Magilmathi. But people will be chanting “Baahubali”.

When Amarendra is about to die, he asks Katappa to take care of his mother. Even after knowing that his mother asked Katappa to kill him, he believed that there must be a strong reason in whatever the decision taken by mother Sivagami. He died without knowing that this all happened because of his brother Bhallala Deva. He didn’t even think of his wife and baby. He knows that his mother will take care of them well in his absence. Just like his thoughts, Sivagami Devi wanted to protect Devasena and her child. Since Devasena was suffering from the pain she can’t come with her. So now she wanted to save this new born child and starts to escape through hidden chamber pathway. But her own sun bows an arrow in her back.

The first part started with Shivudu searching for his dream girl Avantika. When Magailmathi warriors started to
Second part started with Shivu (Amarendra) acting as an innocent boy to make Devasena fall in love with her.

In the climax scene, Mahendra breaks Bhallala Deva’s vehicle, at that time he was jumping high in the air and Bhallala Deva was below him. This means Bhallala Deva is always lower to the powers of Mahendra.

At the end of the movie, Bhallala Deva golden statue head is drowned in water from Magilmathi, and falls down through the waterfall and breaks fully. This means even if he is a King who has all wealth he will be drowned into hell for committing crimes like killing his own mother, betrayed his younger brothers family by killing him, captured his wife as the prison, killing new born baby. While Devasena puts ignite the fire we could see that he has fully gone mentally ill like his father.
in the other hand, Amarendra Baahubali gave up his soul by sitting as a proud king. As he gave his words during the Oath of becoming a Commander of Magilmathi. I would give up my life for the welfare and goodness of my Magilmathi people. He died as a proud king and as a commander at the same time! He screamed Jai Magilmathi.

Disclaimer: – I myself linked the two epic movies and wrote some similarities.

Why I longed to visit Bombay from my childhood?

The political happening of a country can only make decisions on the development of that country. But the financial capital of a country helps to improve its economy. Some countries have their political and financial capital as one. In India, Mumbai formerly known as Bombay is the financial capital, whereas New Delhi is the political capital.

We all know Mumbai is a metropolitan city, one of the important cities in Asia. It has the busiest airport in India next to Indira Gandhi International Airport at New Delhi. The Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus in Mumbai is the headquarters of Central Railways.
But these things never attracted me to visit the “City of Seven Islands“.
What made the big impact on my mind about Mumbai are:-

1) Since my father was working in petroleum refining plant out of India, he will be at home for one month and will go back to work the next month. In my third grade of primary schooling, I came to know about Bombay High. “Bombay High” is an offshore oilfield situated the coast of Mumbai, India. I showed him and said, see pa there is petroleum power plant inside India itself. Get a job here and stay with us.
I wondered does India produce petroleum.

2) From childhood, my father initiated me to read the ingredients, verify the expiry date, check the MRP, and to know about the product before I buy. Most of the products had their ‘headquarters’ in Bombay. Now I can see other metropolitan cities providing headquarters to many companies and two non-metro cities Gurgaon and Noida.
I imagined myself that Mumbai is a big city that’s why all companies have their HQ there!

3)As my father was working in the Middle East, he used to travel in flight. He will board from Trivandrum Airport because it was nearer to our hometown at that time. Most of the flight he used to travel will have a touchdown in Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (CSIA). He said it is a big airport with much people travelling to the Middle East, South East Asia mainly. As he went to Bombay for an interview he told me about the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) railway station too. He said there will always be much crowd waiting to catch the local electric train connecting to the Mumbai suburban area.
I wondered, why they kept the same name to Airport and Railway Station?

4) When I was entering higher secondary school. I witnessed the terrible 26/11 Mumbai terror attack which shook the whole world. Before this, I have heard about 1993 Bombay series bomb attack and have seen 9/11 attack in the news when I was a small boy. After this attack, I was looking for live footages, news channels when I was in the home and was discussing that in school. I read a lot of articles in net. Who has planned this inhuman act? Why are they killing innocent people? What is their motive? Then I came to know that the attack’s main motive is to crash down India’s economy. That’s why they choose Mumbai, that too targeting the main Mumbai City.
I questioned myself is this the reason they always attack Mumbai?

5) My father used to buy Auto car and Dalal Street Magazine. I used to read Auto car regularly. When asked him what is this another magazine about? He said it’s a trade analysis magazine. Dalal Street in Mumbai is the street where Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) is situated. Then I got an eager to know what is the stock market? Human beings are traders from ancient time. Now with the improvement of technology, trading have started to happen online, helping people all over the world to access the market just by using an internet connection. BSE is Asia’s first stock exchange and India’s first, recognised by the Indian Government.
Waiting for the day to buy stocks in BSE.

6) The final and the foremost important thing I wanted to visit Mumbai is to witness the Pune-Mumbai Express Highway. Being an automobile freak I love driving. My first highway ride was in NH-7, now renamed as NH-44. I have admired after knowing about the Pune-Mumbai Express Highway, which is the 1st of its kind in India to have six-lane concrete, high-speed, access controlled tolled expressway. This expressway has 5 tunnels, built by the ‘Konkan Railways‘, which is a subsidiary division of our “Indian Railways“.
I can’t wait to drive in this tremendous expressway very soon!

Since I had a lot of questions from my childhood and a lot more imaginations about Mumbai, it is the only city I longed to visit from my childhood.
As Bombay and Mumbai both have 6 letters. These are my 6 reasons to visit our India’s financial capital.

Life of a ‘searching ENGINEER’!

I don’t exactly know, whether it’s God’s grace or his curse to take up engineering in my life.

Most of the engineering students would have spent more time on searching things than studying engineering.

Hostel Searches:

“Ti-ti! Tic-tic! Tic-tic-tic! Tic-tic!” where I kept the alarm last night? Ah found it. Snooze it. Slept again! Suddenly got up and searching mobile to check the time. Oh crap, it’s 8.05 and class starts by 8.30! Where is my mobile charger? It’s almost drained.
Took the toothbrush and found paste is missing. Quick, find a paste. Looking out for a bathroom is the most difficult thing because the whole hostel will be there from 8.00 to 8.25. Wore all dress. Where is my ID card? No, not again, I remember that I kept it here in this place on my shelf. Where is the pair of my socks? Will anybody notice if I wear two different coloured socks? I can say it’s the new fashion trending. Now the comb is playing hide and seek with me, please show you my dear comb. If I don’t get your help now, people will think I have come to college without bathing, and all the struggle I have made in this 20 minutes would end up in vein. It’s time to find out the shortest route to reach the mess to have minimal breakfast. But the mess is closed already.

College Campus Searches:

It will be great if I get a company to go to class late. The staff has not yet come and I have entered class. Looking around for a place to sleep well or talk well without getting caught. I forgot where I placed my 6S (six subjects) notebook yesterday? Will it still remain in the place or someone has taken it? Yeah found it. Thank god, it’s safe. Oh no, I forgot to bring a pen. Wait there is a pen under the desk. Thank God again. Opened it and saw no cartridge. I hate you, God. You know no boys will bring a single pen properly to college and you need to find one who carries a stationary shop with her and of course makeup kit also!

Examination Searches:

Sleepless night to make all important questions into bits. After getting ready you will find the main bit is missing and you can’t use these bits without the main bit. Found the main bit and goes to the examination notice board. Widely opens your eyes to find your examination hall. When you walk towards your hall. Your mind asks you. Will I get a cornered seat so that I can easily write my exam with my last night’s hard word? Will I get caught today? You will hope for a good place and look into the seating arrangement notice paper. When you enter your hall, the invigilator asks, show me your hall ticket! You need to run as fast as Bolt to get back your hall within 10.30.

Project searches:

Find good partners. One should be skilled technically another one should do all computer related works from typing to printing including having a soft copy in Google drive and pen drive. Even though the team consists of brainy people, the required acquired output is very hard to obtain because we are not trained practically to do things, but was taught all unwanted theories which we will never ever use once in our lifetime. So we need to find a project centre but with less payment.

Placement Searches:

The most important part of an engineer’s life is getting placed in an IT company. Because Core Company needs experienced people or students who have done the innovative project with CGPA more than 9. Some get placed in the core and some get dual triple placement. Some more gets placed in IT. Many still ‘search for a job’.

I hope engineering should be named as “search-engineering”! Because we keep on searching things all four years and still search for a job even after searching a lot of things in our engineering life!
Some people after getting a job, search for peace of mind, stress-free work mainly who entered IT companies and many who undergo night shifts.

Let “peace” prevail to all engineering people with loads of happiness, which many lost in the name of joining an engineering college.

Did ‘Katappa’ really stabbed “Amarendra Baahubali”?

The long wait has now come to the end. Let us have a recap of what clues and hints they gave us about the most awaited and unanswered question for nearly two years.
“Why Katappa Killed Baahubali”? #WKKB.

We all have surely watched “Baahubali: The Beginning”. They portrayed the character of Katappa as Magilmathi’s Commander, whose job is to do things ordered by the King and their family member’s. He even told to Aslam Khan (Sudeep) that his previous generation has promised to be slaves of this Kingdom forever. They showed his character as a good heart human being who longs and his only wish for 25 years is to free Devasena being poisoned her by the King of Present Magilmathi, Bhallala Deva/Pallvalathevan.

Now the question should be asked “What made Katappa kill Baahubali”, or “Who ordered Katappa to kill Baahubali”?

Has Bhallala Deva ordered Katappa to kill Amarendra Baahubali to attain the throne? The chances are nil, that Bhallala Deva asks help to Katappa. Because he always hated him. In the first part when a traitor tries to commit suicide falling from a clip, Bhallala Deva would have never hold of the rope in which Amarendra Baahubali dived to catch that traitor. After seeing Katappa coming with the soldiers, Bhallala Deva murmurs in anger and because of Katappa his plan was spoiled. And in the Wild Bison tame scene, Bhallala Deva says to Katappa that, “Your inner thoughts wanted to kill me, but why are risking your own life to save my life”. This one scene is enough to prove how loyal is Katappa to the kingdom. If not Bhallala Deva, then who might have ordered him to kill Baahubali?

In the very starting of the first part, we have seen Sivagami Devi running with a bow in her back, blood all over her hands, legs and face but still carrying Mahendra Baahubali. Before she dies, she shouts loud to the God, “For all the sins I have made in my life, take my own life. But save this child. He should live to save his mother’s prison life. He should grow up and reach Magilmathi, and should become the King of Magilmathi Kingdom”. And in Baahubali 2 trailer she asks, “War within the Kingdom”? This may mean Bhallala Deva wanted to rule Magilmathi, but he needs to kill Amarendra Baahubali to become the King. So this must be the only inner battle which can happen in the kingdom. Sivagami Devi has always considered Baahubali as her own son. But, her feelings will always be heavier for her own Blood son. She knows Bhallala Deva can’t fight and win Amarendra Baahubali. So, she might have ordered Katappa to kill Amarendra Baahubali to save her own son from death. But, she faced her death because of her own son. Even while dying she was in anger that the Kingdom should be safeguarded soon by Mahendra Baahubali. I guess Sivagami Devi is touching the feet of Devasena and asking sorry for killing his husband in the trailor. Those hands with blood and golden bangles we have seen in the first part beginning.

Will Amarendra Baahubali will appear in this part?
There are more chances that he may come alive. In the trailer after Katappa stabbed him from behind, in another clip he was sitting with the support of the sword and Katappa kneeling down. And it looked like Katappa was explaining him the reason behind this inhuman cruel act. In the first part two scenes are made with a question will Amarendra Baahubali come alive?
1) When Bhallala Deva was talking to Devasena, he will say to her. We two are the only people who still think of Amarendra Baahubali. You wanted to see him at least one time before your death, and I wanted to kill him one more time with more vengeance.
2) When the golden state of Bhallala Deva has risen, people started to chant the name “Baahubali”. After this scene, Bijjaladeva will ask Bhallala Deva. What made our people chant his name? Has he came alive or they did because they are missing him? But, he answers to himself. No, it’s not possible he be alive anymore.
In additional, Devasena will tell to Katappa, “I believe I will see him and he is still alive” in another scene.
In the trailor, Amarendra Baahubali will tell to Katappa. When you are nearer me, no man has ever born to kill me. It means Amarendra Baahubali can’t be killed by anyone except Katappa and Katappa can’t kill Amarendra Baahubali because he is the one who treated Katappa as a human being and the Commander of Magilmathi and never saw him as the kingdom’s slave.

  • The white ‘Lingam’ came in first part when teenager Princess’ were performing pooja with Sivagami Devi, Amarendra Baahubali catches a scorpion which was moving towards Sivagami’s leg.
  • The mighty Amarendra Baahubali’s elephant is seen when the people started to chant “Baahubali” in the gold statue ceremony scene. This elephant makes a huge trumpet noise.
  • Amarendra Baahubali’s swrod is used by Mahendra Baahubali to kill the son of Bhallala Deva (Prince-Bhadra). Before this scene, Mahendra Baahubali broke the sword of Katappa. So katappa’s horse moves towards him so that he can use this sword for the fight. But, Mahendra Baahubali makes a front somersault and got hold of his father’s mighty sword where else Katappa got the sheath only.

In part 2 trailer itself, we have seen many different types of weapons used like bow and arrow, axe, 3 combo bow and arrow, sword. Since this is an 18+ movie, it is sure there will be more battling and fighting scene. Can’t wait to see the full movie!
