    There's hardly any inspirational being a Cricketer unless you are Sachin. A tier 3 or 4 player would get paid more than, say, the Olympic silver medalist PV Sindhu. Their route to glory is just too easy and in the end they lose any morality they have after tasting the riches. May be this is what Gambhir meant to say, but ended up using the wrong example. He knows better than anyone here what life a Cricketer leads.

    Biopics are made on interesting stories. Of course some masala is always added. Plus there are plenty of war movies out there already. As someone said above, Kapil Dev would have made an excellent biopic. His life story was interesting unlike Gavaskar or Sachin's. Also, they should make a comedy movie about Rohit Sharma's career starring Varun Dhawan

    You sure about that? I thought it was because of Yuvraj that we were able to win both the World cups in 2007 and 2011. Clarke captained Australia to 2015 World cup win, but you hardly see anyone giving credit to him. Mitchell Starc was the central focus of the tourney.

    It comes as a no surprise as Srinivasan has proven that he is a successful businessman. The way he made ICC to bend it's knees , he's here to stay. I just hope he stops his weird fetish towards some Indian players.

    Glad you brought this up. I don't think we as a nation can literally afford an all-out war at the moment, nor is it necessary. Honestly, I sense a much larger conspiracy at play here. Think about it putting the global economic situation into perspective. Both US and Chinese economies are going slow. Russian economy has been suffering since last year due to low oil prices. India has been one of the few bright spots with regards to economy. We are currently enjoying jobless growth but if our current govt. is able to crack the job problem, our economy will really take off. Who stands to gain the most by crippling our economy by flaming Indo-Pak tensions? US and China. Who are the biggest facilitators of Pakistan's shenanigans, historically and at present? US and China. Pakistanis are just being used by their masters in the way they are meant to be used. These baboons are emboldened by their masters to maime us. US are the masters of playing good cop-bad cop while the Chinese will do whatever it takes to meet their pressing needs. It will be interesting to see how we play this out diplomatically and militarily. I would suggest we start by taking action in POK and G-B to throw a spanner in the work being done on CPEC.

    Yes, simply because I trust Modi's political acumen. Also, like in 1971 when FM Manekshaw asked PM Gandhi for seven more preparatory months to settle East Pakistan in December, it might be the army itself that is advising against an immediate response. Considering the fact that the UNGA is in session, IA might just be biding its time.

    We are talking about a story for movie not voting for best cricketer ever. He may not be Don incarnation but he came from a small town and won (or captained if u want to have ) India the world after three decades .That's the most Bollywood story ever lol You don't need to belong only to poor family to face struggles in India.Most youngsters coming from small towns and villages face massive struggles to establish themselves in any sector in India .Regardless of poor of lower middle class (which is probably where the larger share if Indians belong anyway ).So it's easy to relate to him or be inspired by him. He is easily the most inspirational story in Indian cricket after Kapil .

    Remember when singer Abhijeet raised his voice against Pak artist employment over employing local Indian talent and all the liberals, seculars and Pak bootlickers berated/alienated him. Sidenote: Completely agree w/ Bookworm. Bollywood is ruled by Punjabis and they have special love for Pakistani. Hence ppl like Atif Aslam & Rahat fatel ali shit makes crores while local Indian artists starve to death.

    Excerpts from an article on ESPNCRICINFO -- http://www.espncricinfo.com/india-v-new-zealand-2016-17/content/story/1057897.html " In the absence of a replacement, and looking at the activity in the India nets, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Umesh Yadav seem to be the frontrunners to make it to the XI. Mohammed Shami is the other quick in the side. The pitch is quite dry and cracked up, although the cracks are not loose or powdery. According to the curator it won't turn as alarmingly as it did in Nagpur last year, but there is certain reverse-swing on offer. The possibility of reverse-swing at high pace could tilt the selection in favour of Yadav ahead of Shami. If India play five bowlers, that is. There will be turn on this pitch for sure - the amount and the promptness of it can be argued - which means India will play three spinners for sure. Turn in Kanpur is usually slow, which could make India feel they need an extra bowler to take 20 wickets. If they don't, though, Bhuvneshwar Kumar is the frontrunner to be the lone seamer in the XI. In the nets two days before the Test, only Bhuvneshwar and Yadav bowled to the frontline batsmen. It was a long intense session involving a lot of bouncers in the fast bowlers' net. Shami only came out to bowl at the lower order and Shikhar Dhawan, who likely to miss out on selection. Rohit Sharma batted along with the other specialist batsmen, which could be an indication that India hadn't yet made their minds up regarding the selection " Why is Shami not the front-runner ? He can bowl reverse swing at pace and is perhaps our only all-condition fast bowler. If we play only one fast bowler, it should be him.

    Ten months after being replaced as the chief of the International Cricket Council (ICC) president, N. Srinivasan is likely to return to cricket’s global governing body. The former BCCI and ICC chief has emerged as the front-runner to being the BCCI’s representative on the ICC’s Board of Directors. Srinivasan’s nomination is being supported by the BCCI president Anurag Thakur and Ajay Shirke, with the latter set to be re-elected as the secretary during its 87th AGM on Tuesday. Considering Srinivasan’s equation with the Board’s top brass over the last three years, the move may come as a surprise, but it only proves that there are no permanent friends or foes in BCCI corridors, just like in politics.

    Adani Green Energy, part of the Adani Group, today said it has dedicated to the nation the world's largest 648-mw solar power plant in Tamil Nadu entailing an investment of Rs 4,550 crore. The solar power plant, producing 648 mw at a single location, was formally dedicated to the nation, a company statement said. "The plant is set up at Kamuthi, Ramanathapuram, in Tamil Nadu with an investment of Rs 4,550 crore. It is part of the state government's ambitious target of generating 3,000 mw as per the solar energy policy unveiled by the government in 2012," it said. The entire 648-mw plant is now connected with Kamuthi 400 kv sub-station ofTantransco, making it the world's largest solar unit at a single location, it said. "This is a momentous occasion for Tamil Nadu as well as for the entire country. We are... happy to dedicate this plant to the nation. A plant of this magnitude reinstates the country's ambitions of becoming one of the leading green energy producers in the world," said Gautam Adani, Chairman, Adani Group. "I would like to express our deepest gratitude to chief minister and the government of Tamil Nadu...," he said. The plant consists of 3.80 lakh foundations, 25 lakh solar modules, 27,000 mt of structure, 576 inverters, 154 transformers along with 6,000-km cables. For setting up the factory, the company had sourced equipment and machinery from various parts of the world in a timeframe of eight months. About 8,500 personnel worked for an average about 11 mw of installation in a day to set up the plant in the stipulated time, it said. http://m.economictimes.com/industry/energy/power/gautam-adani-unveils-worlds-largest-solar-power-plant-in-tamil-nadu/amp_articleshow/54444179.cms

    Obviously. Gambhir: Dhoni, when asked why we didn't bring a backup opener during our SA-NZ tour, he said he considers Gambhir the backup opener, even though he wasn't in the squad. Gambhir also came back for the England series. Yuvraj: played both the last 2 WT20s after not exactly setting the world on fire in the last few IPLs. Also played the last Asia cup. They both had numerous chances, since supposedly being ousted. If Dhoni didn't want them, how would they have been selected, let alone played at all?

    His 2011 exploits is nowhere near Kapil Paji's in 1983.Kapil just dragged that medocre team which had no chance against WI,Eng,Aus and even PAK.It was just the biggest shock of Indian cricket.India were in the cusp of getting knocked out and he played that innings against Zim.Dhoni's team were favs from the word go and He just performed in d final.That's about dat. what did you think of biopic on mary kom ?

    Also I fear how far behind the 10 years of Congress rule has left us in terms of intelligence gathering and war-readiness....I mean this was the same government that fudged evidence to prove a terrorist like Ishrat Jahan was a victim of communal violence. Not defending Modi govt. here but just to act on instinct right now might be a disaster as Pak who have nothing better to do than being a warmonger or anti-India and who knows they might be more equipped than us at the moment. Yeah they won't last in a full-fledged all out war against us but in a reactionary tit-for tat scenario there is a slight probability that they might embarrass us given the fact that they will be more alert now expecting a response. I will have some patience with Modi for the time-being but I want a perfect response and none of this diplomatic bs.....let us see if he delivers but I will have some threshold of patience for the response.

    Ind will because the army would not like to let the killers of its 18 men go unpunished. This is probably the worst attack in 25 years or so .... Pak thinks that there are two spectrum of operations - a) proxies and b) nukes. However, for Ind there are tons of other military choices as well .... Pak believes that nukes could serve as a deterrent to it being not punished by Ind, while continuing to use proxies (as if having nukes gives it a licence to do such things). Ind, on the other hand, can think that its nuke will also serve as a deterrent for Pak to not use nukes While the military operation can be done at an optimal time, I don't understand the delay in taking many of the other non-military initiatives

    The love is for money.....they really don't give a shit about these artists......I am pretty sure a mediocre 3rd rate Bollywood movie will generate more revenue in Pakistan if released legally than it would in South or West Bengal. They have a Sufi style song in every movie these days....has there been a bhajan or a Hindu devotional song in any movie? not that it needs to be ,but there is always a scenario created for constipated shouting of Khwaja,Khuda,Rabba,Allah. It is purely business...as much as I hate it,I can understand why they are doing what they are doing.unfortunately these Qawwal/Sufi kind of songs don't need a Rahat Fateh Khan or Atif Aslam...I am sure there are Sufi style singers in India as well,if these filmmakers have fallen in love with Sufi style spiritualism.

    i see this as unnecessary risk and risk to reward is not that great.. on normal expiry ( like no big events are there ) , 3% OTM call or put might trade for 4 or 5 rs .. approximately we might get 600 to 800rs per 1L locked margin.. once in a while there might be a bigger swing which will give us huge losses i prefer to sell options on stocks , but i dont sell nifty or bank nifty options ( from my exp index option are comparatively cheaper, so its better to buy ATM options on index )

    Biopic is not like a national award that one has to be most deserving of it. Biopic will be made on people who have charisma,who have great following and who can interest people into watching it. Dhoni has all off these. He may not be the most talented or even the most successful...but he has lead a damn interesting life and people seem interested in his life.
