For the first time in the cash rich tournament’s history it saw a postponement from its original schedule, as well as the second IPL to be hosted abroad. However, former Indian batsman Gautam Gambhir feels that the  IPL 2020 will be the biggest one ever.Advertisement Image Courtesy: AFP/IPLSpeaking at the latest episode of Star Sports’ ‘Cricket Connected’ show, Gautam Gambhir said that the 13th edition of IPL will be the biggest one in the history of the tournament, as a fresh breath of air for India in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic.“Doesn’t matter where it goes but obviously it goes to UAE, it’s a great venue to play any format and plus most importantly it is going to change the mood of the nation,” Gambhir said on the show.Advertisement The former Kolkata Knight Riders captain, who lead the franchise to two title victories in 2012 and 2014, further stated that this IPL will switch up the atmosphere of the country completely, no matter the results or stats.Gauti continued, “It’s not about which franchise win, which player score runs, which guy takes wicket, it’s just changing the mood of the nation.”Advertisement “So, this IPL probably will be bigger than rest of the IPL because I think this if for the nation,” the 38 year old concluded.Following many rumours and speculations after IPL 2020 was suspended from its original commencement date of March 29th, it was confirmed by the governing body that the tournament will return in the Middle Eastern country, as the virus threat in India is still too high to host such a large scale event.“IPL 2020 which was postponed due to coronavirus will now be held in UAE,” IPL governing council chairman Brijesh Patel confirmed earlier. Sources within BCCI also reported yesterday that the tournament will take place from 19th September to 8th November, the window which was originally reserved for the now postponed 2020 T20 World Cup.If you like reading about MMA, make sure you check out Also follow India’s biggest arm wrestling tournament at ProPanja.comAlso read-What could have been: Rakheem Cornwall attracted NFL offers before cricket came to his rescueWhat could have been: Rakheem Cornwall attracted NFL offers before cricket came to his rescue Advertisementlast_img read more

10 Qualities That I Admire In Others

first_imgThese are 10 qualities that I admire in other people. They are in order or priority, although that order can change from day-to-day, as circumstances dictate. Compassion: Compassion isn’t the same thing as empathy. It’s more than understanding someone else’s feelings. Compassion is selfless caring for another. Compassion requires action. That’s why it tops my list.Humility: I’ve seen first hand the power of humility. The people who are best with other people exercise humility. They treat all human beings with kindness and compassion, regardless of their station in life.Grit: People who tough out adversity by clenching their teeth and fighting through it are admirable. They don’t let adversity prevent them from succeeding; they use adversity as fuel. Their intestinal fortitude is enviable.Game: Some people are willing to give it a go. It doesn’t matter all that much what “it” is. They’re willing to try, even if they don’t know what they’re doing, and even if they recognize they’ll be way out over their skis. The courage to try is praise-worthy.Loyalty: The trust that someone will be there for you, that they’ll do right by you no matter what is a special quality. It’s even more so in an age where more and more relationships are transactional. Knowing you can count on someone, that they are faithful, is a quality worth emulating.Strength: It takes strength to stay true to your beliefs. It takes strength to say “no.” Strength is what allows those who have it to stand firm when it would be easier to bend (or break). The strength of character is what allows one to be true to themselves and others.Thoughtfulness: Thinking enough about someone else to do something nice—and maybe unexpected—is a too rare quality, and something worth developing. It’s old school, and it leaves a strong impression on who you really are.Sense of Humor: The ability to make people laugh is a super power. The ability to relieve the tension in the room through humor or connect with others can improve the outcome in different situations. It’s especially powerful when it isn’t forced. Self-deprecating humor is even more so.Comfortable In Their Own Skin: People who are comfortable in their own skin have a high enough emotional intelligence to realize what they are and are comfortable with that fact. The ability not to take stock in anyone’s judgment or opinion about who they are is estimable.Duty: The sense of responsibility to someone or something. This is the quality of “owning it” and doing impeccable work beyond anything that is expected of you. This is a too rare quality, and that’s what makes it noteworthy. Essential Reading!

West Ham sack Tony Henry for ‘unacceptable comments’ on African players

first_imgShare on Messenger Share on LinkedIn Topics Read more Share on Twitter Share on Facebook David Moyes news Reuse this contentcenter_img “Our action follows a full and thorough investigation. West Ham United will not tolerate any type of discrimination. The West Ham family is an inclusive one where, regardless of gender, age, ability, race, religion or sexual orientation, everybody feels welcome and included.”Henry, who had worked for the club since 2014, is reported to have sent an email to an agent and a club executive asking them not to recommend any more African players. When confronted over the contents, Henry admitted to having made similar remarks to other agents. He told the Mail: “It’s nothing racist at all. It’s just sometimes they can have a bad attitude.”Henry claimed the strategy towards signing African players was supported by club management. West Ham deny that is the case. They have one player capped by an African country in their squad, Senegal’s Cheikh Kouyaté, but five other players who could claim nationality.In the January transfer window West Ham sold Ghana’s André Ayew and Diafra Sakho of Senegal. David Moyes said earlier on Friday the club had been expecting to sign two African players on transfer deadline day, only for both deals to fall through.Speaking before Henry’s dismissal Moyes said: “[Henry’s] comments are wrong. We were signing two players from Africa on deadline day. We have an open transfer policy, we always look to sign good quality players and it doesn’t really matter where they’re from at all.”The manager added: “I have never experienced prejudice in a club’s transfer policy.” He also denied ever having heard anyone call African players disruptive. “I’ve heard them say Scottish players are disruptive,” he said.The two deadline-day players West Ham had hoped to sign were Leicester’s Islam Slimani and Ibrahim Amadou of Lille. Moyes said both targets had been recommended by Henry, with whom he had also worked at Everton. The Cameroon-born Amadou was, said Moyes, the subject of a “really big” loan offer but stayed at Lille. The Algerian Slimani moved to Newcastle.The Guardian reported Leicester decided not to broker a deal with West Ham after remarks made by the vice-chairman, Karren Brady, in a Sun newspaper column. “It’s a question for the club, not for me,” Moyes said, insisting Brady’s column was “not a problem”. West Ham have acted swiftly to distance themselves from Tony Henry, sacking their director of player recruitment over remarks he made about African football players.Henry’s dismissal came 12 hours after the club announced an inquiry into a report in the Daily Mail that Henry had claimed some African players “caused mayhem” and that West Ham “don’t want any more Africans”. It is understood the club acted after reading a full transcript of an interview he gave to the newspaper.A West Ham spokesman said: “West Ham have terminated the contract of director of player recruitment, Tony Henry, with immediate effect following his unacceptable comments that were widely reported in the press.

Studio says safety on Riverdale set of paramount importance following crash

first_imgVANCOUVER – Warner Bros. Television says the safety of the cast and crew of its Vancouver-based “Riverdale” set is of “paramount importance.”The studio is speaking out in the wake of a car crash involving star K.J. Apa, who escaped injury in a collision that occurred as he drove home after a 14-hour day.The incident prompted concerns from some industry observers about long hours in the film and TV business.But the studio says its productions adhere to guild-mandated standards. That includes a turnaround time of 12 hours from wrap to next day call time, and the offer of a taxi, driver or hotel room to anyone who feels tired or unsafe after work.The studio says Apa worked 14.2 hours Sept. 14, the day of the accident. And on the previous day he worked 2.5 hours, and the day before that he worked 7.7 hours.They also say the 20-year-old New Zealander was told about his labour rights.“K.J. has repeatedly been informed about making production aware if he is tired or feels unsafe, and if so, either a ride or hotel room will be provided for him,” the studio said in a statement.Apa plays lead character Archie Andrews on the show, a live action take on the Archie Comics.It is the second Vancouver production to have an accident in as many months.
