Powered by Firework Over the years, Team India skipper Virat Kohli has established himelf as one of the greatest cricketers of all time, and according to many, the best player of the current generation. Several pundits and former cricketers believe Kohli outshines all other across several formats of the game, even former Pakistani international Zaheer Abbas who puts him above Steve Smith. However, his compatriot and former cricketer Ramiz Raja thinks there is one player who hits it harder than the Indian captain, and it is young Pakistani cricketer Babar Azam.Advertisement Image Courtesy: BCCI/PTISpeaking to PTI in a recent interview, Ramiz Raja expressed his dissent towards the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), who have been accused by many players of the country for letting spoilt cricketers make a return to international cricket, which in turn damages the image of the team.Instead, the former opening batsman argued that youngsters like Babar Azam should be given the chance to prove their worth.Advertisement “There is no doubt about Babar Azam’s ability, he is a world-class player,” Raja told PTI.The commentator went on stating that the young batsman, with the right conditions would give Kohli or Steve Smith a run for their money.Advertisement Raja continued: “When people ask me about comparison between Babar Azam with the likes of Virat Kohli and Steve Smith I would say he can do even better than Kohli but he needs a conducive atmosphere and the freedom to express himself more as a player and as captain.”Azam made his international debut in 2016, and has been making consistent appearances for Pakistan across all three formats. The 25 year old batsman has earned 26 Test, 74 ODI and 28 T20I caps, and plays for Karachi Kings in the Pakistan Super League (PSL).While paying his respect towards the current seniors of the team, Raja felt that the shortest format of the game needed younger players.“I have nothing personal against Muhammad Hafeez or Shoaib Malik who are senior players and have served the country for a long time. But I think now the selectors need to think about replacing them with youngsters and groom them properly,” the 57 year old added.Also read-Pakistan legend gives his verdict on Virat Kohli vs Steve SmithThe Story behind the colours which connect SD Eibar with La Liga heavyweights FC Barcelona Advertisementlast_img read more

Texas A&M Football Offered 15 Year Old Brother Of Aggie Linemen Jake, Kevin, And Mike Matthews

(Photo by Scott Halleran/Getty Images)While the Mannings get most of the press, there may not be a better football family than the Matthews clan. Brothers Bruce and Clay Matthews were both NFL stars in the 1980s and 90s, and between the two of them, four of their sons have played in the NFL, including Green Bay Packers all-pro linebacker Clay Matthews III, and Atlanta Falcons 2014 first round pick Jake Matthews.Luke Matthews, a 2018 four-star offensive tackle recruit, may well be following his brothers Jake, former Tennessee Titans center Kevin, and current Texas A&M center Mike, in playing for the Aggies at the next level. Matthews told 247Sports that he was offered today, and his brothers think he may wind up being the best player in the family.#TAMU has offered the youngest Matthews brother, class of 2018 OT Luke Matthews: http://t.co/064NJ58XNr pic.twitter.com/WP0cPIoCw2— Gigem247 (@GigEm247) August 4, 2015“A&M gave me an offer today,” he said on Tuesday afternoon. The 6-foot-4, 310-pound rising sophomore is the younger brother of former A&M linemen Kevin Matthews and Jake Matthews and current Aggie center Mike Matthews. His father is NFL Hall-of-Fame offensive tackle Bruce Matthews. Luke’s older brothers have described him as possibly being the best of the bunch when all is said and done, something that would be very impressive as Jake was a first-round draft pick and Kevin spent some time in the NFL as well. Mike is A&M’s starting center and should get a shot in the league after this year as well.While Matthews has a ways to go before National Signing Day 2018, and in recruiting anything can happen, it should be a pretty decent bet that he’ll be the fourth brother to strap on the pads for Texas A&M.[247Sports]last_img read more

Amit Panghal Manish Kaushik aim for history at world boxing semis

first_imgEkaterinburg (Russia): India would be aiming to better their best ever show when Amit Panghal (52kg) and Manish Kaushik (63kg) step inside the ring against tough opponents in pursuit of summit berths in the World Men’s Boxing Championship here, on Friday. India have never had two semifinalists at the marquee event for amateur boxers and in that respect, the two Haryana boxers have already scripted history. But if both or either of them manages to make the finals, it would be a gigantic step forward for the sport in the country. Also Read – We will push hard for Kabaddi”s inclusion in 2024 Olympics: Rijiju The task, however, is easier said than done. Panghal has in his way Kazakhstan’s Saken Bibossinov, who stunned Armenia’s European gold-medallist and sixth seed Artur Hovhannisyan in the quarterfinals. Kaushik, on the other hand, faces the most accomplished boxer in his weight category — Cuban top seed Andy Gomez Cruz, who out-punched Russia’s eighth-seeded Ilia Popov in the last-eight stage. Cruz, who was the light welterweight (64kg) gold-medallist in the 2017 edition, is also a two-time Pan American Games gold-winner and not to mention, a terrific mover inside the ring. Also Read – Djokovic to debut against Shapovalov at Shanghai Masters “Now begins the tough job. We have already delivered on bettering the medal count and now we aim to better their colour,” Indian Boxing’s High Performance Director Santiago Nieva told PTI. “I am happy but I won’t be completely happy till the time both of them reach the finals and they surely can, both of them,” added the country’s chief coach C A Kuttappa. They are up against tough challengers but that in no way makes them automatic underdogs. Panghal, the pint-sized dynamo from Rohtak, is the reigning Asian Games and Championships gold-medallist and has back-to-back gold medals at one of Europe’s oldest tournament — the Strandja Memorial. Kaushik, the shy man hailing from the cradle of Indian boxing Bhiwani, is a Commonwealth Games gold-medallist and is a two-time national medal winner. Both are employed with the Indian Army and both have shown a soldier’s grit in some draining bouts so far. “He (Bibossinov) has a long reach but I think I have the strategy to beat him,” said Panghal after the quarterfinal triumph. Panghal didn’t go into the details but so far, he has delivered each time he has promised. In fact, it was at the world championships when Panghal first caught everyone’s attention. In the 2017 edition, he nearly took down the then defending champion Hasanboy Dusmatov in the quarters but lost by the most slender of margins. The Indian got his revenge a year later in the Asian Games final, where a gold catapulted him to star status in Indian boxing. Kaushik has had a stop-start career so far. He first hit the headlines when he took down 2015 world bronze-winner and three-time Asian medallist Shiva Thapa in the national championship finals. That victory opened the doors of the senior national camp for him and he has been locked in a neck-and neck battle for a place in the side with Thapa ever since. So, while the CWG slot went to him, Thapa took the Asian Games last year. “I think I have moved slightly ahead because I don’t just have a world medal like him but also a CWG medal which Shiva bhai doesn’t have. That has taken a lot of pressure off me,” Kaushik told PTI. “As for tomorrow, I have seen the videos of my opponent. No doubt he is a good boxer but there is nothing in his game that I cannot do better,” he added. Before this year, India had never won more than one bronze medal in a single edition of the world championship. The overall medal count for the country before the ongoing edition stood at four bronze medals, claimed by Vijender Singh (2009), Vikas Krishan (2011), Shiva Thapa (2015) and Gaurav Bidhuri (2017).last_img read more

New Delhi Priyanka Chopra Jonas was offered an ac

first_imgNew Delhi: Priyanka Chopra Jonas was offered an acting role in “The Sky is Pink” but the actor says she wanted to take on the added responsibility as a producer because the story made her feel closer to her parents. Directed by Shonali Bose, the film is the love story of motivational speaker Aisha Chaudhary’s parents, Aditi and Niren. Aisha was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis and passed away in 2015. Priyanka, 37, said she wanted to be a part of the project more than just as an actor. Also Read – ‘Terminator: Dark Fate’ has James Cameron’s fingerprints all over it: Arnold Schwarzenegger “This is a story of a real life couple who have thrived under extraordinary circumstances and not been bogged down by it,” she told PTI in an interview. In a reference to Rajesh Khanna-starrer “Anand”, she said, “They put themselves aside and said, ‘Even if I can’t give my daughter a long life, I’m going to give her a big life’. I wanted to take more responsibility of this film because I believed in it so much.” It has been a long wait for Priyanka’s fans as “The Sky is Pink” is her first Hindi film since 2016 after she made a mark for herself in Hollywood with TV show “Quantico”, and films like “Baywatch”, “A Kid Like Jake” and “Isn’t It Romantic”. Also Read – Salman pays tribute to Vinod Khanna on ‘Dabangg 3’ wrap up The actor, who has often said she has been living out of suitcase for quite some time, next touched base with frequent collaborators Ronnie Screwvala and Siddharth Roy Kapur, who were producing the film. She asked the duo whether they would have her on board as a fellow producer, even when she has no experience of backing a Hindi film. Under her banner, Purple Pictures Productions, the actor has produced a string of regional language films, including National Award-winning Marathi titles “Ventilator” (2016) and the soon-to-be-released “Paani”. “I said, ‘Listen, I’ve never produced a Hindi film. But under your tutelage, I would like to learn. Would you have me as a co-producer?’ And they were really wonderful, and they totally took me on.” In the film, Priyanka plays Aditi and Farhan Akhtar will be seen as Niren and she said the couple reminded her of her parents, Madhu and late Ashok Chopra, who died in 2013. “My parents were like that with me. They stood by me and supported me over their own dreams and ambitions. They sacrificed their lives so that I could have mine and I feel like in this cynical world today, where we somehow become solitary from our families. “This is the kind of family film that reminds you, how important family is and how important the support of your family is. I found that just so beautiful, especially in the world of today,” she said. Priyanka described Aditi as “a ferocious mom who was best friends with her daughter”, played by Zaira Wasim in the film. “I’m best friends with my mother. We party together, go to concerts and hang out. She has known my entire journey… from all my boyfriends to my husband. She has been my best person. Seeing that in Aditi to me was as if I was playing what my mother has been to me,” she said. The actor, who is married to American singer Nick Jonas, said she hopes to become a mother like Aditi one day. “I depended a lot on Shonali and Aditi to imbibe what it is like actually. The kind of mother I’m playing in this film is the kind of mom I hope to be someday,” she added. Also featuring Rohit Saraf, the film is slated to hit the screens on October 11.last_img read more

New Delhi Facebookowned Instagram is rolling out

first_imgNew Delhi: Facebook-owned Instagram is rolling out a new mode called “Restrict” globally that will let users stop people who bully them via offensive posts or abusive comments. You can restrict someone by swiping left on a comment, through the Privacy tab in Settings, or directly on the profile of the account you intend to restrict, Instagram announced on Wednesday. “Starting today, you can protect your account from unwanted interactions with a new feature called Restrict. Once Restrict is enabled, comments on your posts from a person you have restricted will only be visible to that person,” said the company. You can choose to view the comment by tapping “See Comment”; approve the comment so everyone can see it, delete it or ignore it. “You won’t receive any notifications for comments from a restricted account,” the company added. Direct messages will automatically move to Message Request, and users will not receive notifications from a restricted account. “You can still view the messages but the restricted account will not be able to see when you’ve read their direct messages or when you are active on Instagram. You can choose to “Unrestrict” the account and future messages will go directly to your inbox,” the company added. Instagram is using Artificial Intelligence (AI) to detect bullying and other types of harmful content in comments, photos and videos. Last month, Instagram announced to restrict people under age 18 from viewing posts from celebrity influencers that promote cosmetic surgery and various weight-loss products. Certain posts will be hidden from users under age 18 while others will be removed from Instagram as well as parent company’s platform Facebook, said Instagram’s public policy manager Emma Collins.last_img read more
