A short thread
In his interview with @manojladwa, (see link), India's Exernal Affairs Minister, @DrSJaishankar, when asked about the ongoing #SecondCOVIDWave crisis in India, acknowledged that it was a grave problem almost an "existential crisis". But then he tried..
to soften the impact on his NRI audience, he compared what India is going through to the second wave in Britain in 2020 late summer and autumn when the health services were swamped, "you've been through something similar, that is what India is going thru now"
This is not untrue, but grossly misleading. Yes Britain, at the height of the epidemic, was reporting 50k cases a day and 1,750 deaths. See chart 1. In population terms britain had far more cases and deaths (Chart 2) ImageImage

So #IPL match in #Delhi today amidst the #corona crisis. They say its a #stress buster. For once imagine if there was no ipl, would people who are already stressed, would they be more stressed over their friend/family/acquaintance getting ill/hospitalized. 1/7
Maybe, for some who seek a stress reliever. It gives them something to do, but so do these #OTT s.
I am pro #cricket and all for people prospering but never at the cost of other #people (I am sure it's not intended). Sadly, that's what ipl seems like right now..2/7
atleast in today's time when there is already a dearth of facilities and resources, we see it being diverted somewhere avoidable. There's a chill of #sadness in the air and a #curfew to curb the spread. As much as we try to focus on the #positives and the recoveries, .. 3/7

It's been 14years. Happy Birthday to the best thing that happened to Cricket... #IPL
The English are very good at inventing things. They invented the t20 league, nd allowed India to Hijack
We launched our own t20 league Idea was floated by Lalit Modi.
Indian giants Dada, Dravid, Laxman, Sehwag, Dhoni , Sachin became icon players, Shane Warne coached and Captained RR.
And the opening match was a treat for all the fans. Brendon hit 13 sixes in a t20 game, which was unimaginable in those days. Strike rate of 216 was unbelievable.
Swapnil Asnodkar and Kamran Khan were the find , Reality show winner Dinesh Shlunkhe rubs shoulder with Shane Warne and Grame Smith,
The Perfect rags to riches story.
Cricket meets Bollywood, and it became Blockbuster.

Caught an interesting discussion online on some Pak network on #IPL.
1. Pak players missing the excitement & MONEY
2. Pak players & fans missing the excitement.
3. One commentator said each #IPL player makes more money than entire Pak T 20 team.
4. Pak's two T20 leagues a failure
5. Pak players want to play & want Im The Dim to initiate dialogue with India.
6. Discussion also noted PM @narendramodi different & will not accept Pak on earlier terms.
7. Pak still unwilling to abandon path of support to radical Islamist terror represented by HafizSaeed & Co.
8. Pak commentators concede being out of cricket is a big loss to Pak cricket both in terms of finances, glory & as important experience.
9. Pak out of Bollywood & music is also a major loss for Pak
10. As long as Pak people remain subservient to Pak Mil Jihad complex: their loss

There was another really interesting innings in the #IPL match today. This time by Kane Williamson.

He scored 41(26) at Abu Dhabi. That's a strike rate of 157.7, which is the second highest for any score over 40 at Abu Dhabi this IPL. (Top was Suryakumar Yadav's 47(28) SR 167.9)
That, in itself, isn't particularly interesting. What is interesting is how he scored those runs.

He faced only 3 dot balls. He scored off the other 23. Those three dots were a ball he hit too hard to a fielder, one that hit him and they got a leg bye and the ball he got out on.
He scored 5 boundaries, all fours. So he scored 20 runs in boundaries, and 21 in non-boundaries.

He scored at a strike rate over 150, despite scoring fewer boundary runs than run runs. This graph is every innings this IPL with 30+ runs at 135+ Strike rate.

Williamson's in red.

आप बॉलीवुड मूवीज देखो या IPL......
अंत मे कमाएगा तो इस्लामिक आतंकवादी दाऊद ही।
जरिया ड्रग्स तो है ही एक्सटॉरसन मानी व सट्टेबाजी भी दोनों में ही।
आपने देखा होगा IPL के दौरान पूरे डेढ़ माह तक कोई भी बड़ी फिल्म सिनेमाघरों में रिलीज नही होती.
क्यों ?? सोचा है कभी ?? Image
IPL के दौरान बड़ी फिल्मों के सिनेमाघरों में रिलीज न करने पर बॉलीबुड अपनी सफाई में इसकी वजह IPL की लोकप्रियता बताता है। अर्थात बॉलीबुड के मुताबिक दर्शक IPL देखने में व्यस्त रहते हैं। अतः उनकी फिल्मों को कौन देखेगा? वे फ्लॉप हो जाएंगी?
किन्तु क्या ये सत्य है ??
ऐसा नही है कि IPL के दौरान कभी बड़ी फिल्मे रिलीज नही हुई अथवा वे फ्लॉप रही। हाउसफुल, हाउसफुल 2, तनु वेड्स मनु, तनु वेड्स मनु रिटर्न्स, विकी डोनर जैसी दर्जनों बड़ी फिल्मे है, जो IPL के दौरान रिलीज भी हुई और सुपरहिट भी साबित हुई।
अतः ये तर्क खारिज हो जाता है..

Since #NCB is conducting raids & #IPL has also started, let me share a fact about this pow(d)er couple. Apart from indulging in consumption & peddling of #narcotic substances, these 2 were known for supplying female models to #IPL after parties. #ArjunRampal #MehrJesia Image
Initially the girls used to be paid per night or per week for being a ‘companion’ for certain players during tours, later on the players moved to a ‘lifestyle’ payment method for the girls - buying luxury items, paying for expensive dinners & hotels. #MIvsCSK #FleshTrade
Sm girls were taken abroad to party destinations & vacations by players like #ChrisGayle. While this is #fleshtrade & #prostitution, in the high circles they think it isn’t so, since the girls are willing participants. Ppl consume drugs willingly, does that mean it’s not a crime?

Whom am I to ask u to Boycott #IPL2020 bcoz for some its sports & Dhoni is a god who remained silent on a person death who played his life on screen

but then you have no right to ask justice for Sushant Singh Rajput, Divya Bharti, Sridevi, Jia, Disha...


I know many shameless hypocrites who Ques all for Justice but will watch #MIvsCSK

Irony inspite of we knowing IPL BollyX Webseries all have investments from D-Gang Controlled Ecosystems

Why was only @KanganaTeam maligned in the #CDR scam? Because DCP #AbhishekTrimukhe was asked to highlight her name and pin the blame on her. He is deeply involved with the mafia. #ResignTrimukhe #MumbaiPolice #Warriors4SSR #KanganaRanaut @iRaviTiwari
