  1. Yes, I am talking about the clash between the table toppers, MI and DC tomorrow. They are playing their last of the first half league match with each other. If DC wins this, they have virtually booked their place in the first qualifier. If MI wins this, they are more or less certain playing in the playoffs and can vie for a spot in top 2. So, we might be witnessing a dress-hearsal of the first playoff between top two teams and potentially the final of IPL too. Enjoy this match with both sides boasting the best fast bowler and good death batsmen.
  2. Yesterday vs today is what we see as the contest between Ishan vs Rishab. The results are there for everyone to see.
  3. For sure, we need to go to original sources and get the more detailed and accurate facts, but wikipedia is definitely a good initial pointer of information, especially if we are talking about medieval/ancient history of India and world. I think @rahulrulezz is talking about the same. Regarding POV of dharmic or left historian or some other POV., history should be studied and understood independent of (i.e. without the bias) of any of these PoVs. History is simply a true story of the human past. Since we cannot be sure of many things that already happened, we try to deduce the past from wha
  4. All of us would have watched in delight how the blazing blade of UV sent 6 out of 6 balls into orbit on that Durban evening. And while such events happened before in FC by Gary Sobers and in ODIs in that same year by H Gibbs, none of them would have as many LIVE watches both in the stadium as well as TV and both of them were against some spinners whom no one remembers now. But this six sixers by UV were against a young pace bowler and the commentators described him (after 4 balls) as the bowler who knows he is going to be mauled again. From there, he went to make a tes
  5. So, USA reached 2 million by first week of June as expected but the cases did not stabilize later. They increased to a whopping 2.9 million and USA is all set to touch 3 million mark by the end of this long weekend. Have a safe Independence Day for all ICF folks in USA!
  6. Very good post. This is really terrible. India as a nation failed with these poor souls. No one cares about them.
  7. The state govts fed these labors as long as they were willing. How can you stop them when they wanted to leave. They want to die in their native places instead of these places where they don't have homes. Modi should have given a day or two before the first lock-down that there may be 2-3 months of lockdown coming up and hence you all go to native places in buses/trains and then start the lock down.
  8. There are numerous videos about how badly the migrant labors and their families are deeply affected by the crisis. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0gV-2vsUbs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q4linR9SemE Reporters like Burkha Dutta are praised for their real ground work to cover these amazing stories. Yet it is surprising that there is hardly any discussion about it and how the central (and may be state) governments were so incompetent in letting this happen until this thread is opened. Instead, we have numerous posts on threads related to Cow discussion, Hindu
  9. Yes, in official declared stats that is true. Who knows how many people in China actually tested positive forCovid-19 and how many more died than what is officially released. Is it worrying you that in this time of increased cases, we have India preparing to come out of the lock down? And if the lock down is in fact lifted off, who will work in construction and several other industries that are mostly dependent upon the migrant labor most of whom had already left for their hometowns/ Things look really bleak until a vaccine emerges and people become secure to travel/work like before.
  10. So, USA has crossed 1 million positives yesterday on 27th April, 2020 well within end of April. So, the ICFers who optimistically voted for < 1 million infections are all proven wrong by the latest stat. Now, I see 14 votes for 1-5 million infections. Let us see if that will hold good. I have a hunch that the pessimistic 5 million is not impossible now may be by the fall or end of the year or so.
  11. It reached 500,000 by Good Friday and not even Easter Monday as I predicted. Anyways, I think the worst is yet to come. I think there will be above 1 million cases by early may and 2 millions by early-mid June. Things might be better by July 4, when the numbers will probably hover around 2.5 million and then the curve flattens.
  12. Correct. I don't think anyone here is questioning why help average Pakistani but do it through more reliable organizations. If you are giving it to Afridi foundation because he as a friend requested it, make it as a personal donation and
