Watch: This knock from Rishabh Pant for India A shows he is Test ready 20.7.2018 DNA: Top News
India head into the Test series against England without their first choice wicket-keeper Wriddhiman Saha. That, of course, is a huge blow but the visitors still have two quality keepers in their squad for the highly-anticipated five-match series. While Dinesh Karthik will be India's first-choice stumper, Virat Kohli's and Co will be confident in the abilities of young Rishabh Pant too. The Delhi lad pipped Parthiv Patel to come closer to a Test debut, and his back-to-back fifties in India A's just-concluded unofficial Test against England Lions shows he's ready for top-class red-ball cricket. Here's a glimpse of Rishabh's efforts against England Lions RESULT: Congratulations to India 'A' who have beaten West Indies 'A' by 5 wickets at the CACG!

England Lions hammer India A by 254 runs in one-off unofficial Test 19.7.2018 DNA: Top News
India A batsmen's vulnerability against the red ball in foreign conditions was exposed as England Lions handed the visitors a 254-run defeat in the one-off Unofficial Test on day four in Worcester on Thursday. India A, who were reeling at 11 for three at stumps on day three while chasing an improbable 421-run target, did not put up much of a fight even in the second innings, folding up for 167 in 44 overs. They had struggled to 197 all out in 66.5 overs in the first essay after Lions made 423. The sole silver lining for India A was that Ajinkya Rahane and rookie Risabh Pant got to spend some valuable time in the middle ahead of the five-Test series against England, beginning in Birmingham on August 1. Pant, who has earned his maiden Test call-up, struck a second successive half-century century to give the Indian team management a selection headache ahead of the first match. India have picked two specialist wicket-keepers in the 18-man squad, including Pant and Dinesh Karthik, who is more likely to ...

Rajasthan: A curious case of hungry leopards 18.7.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
No deer, Sambhar or Chinkara, and neither any other natural prey is available in the Jhalana forest sitting next to the bustling city of Jaipur. So, what remains the staple diet of Leopards in this dry deciduous forest?  This beautiful mammal is invited to prey upon monkeys which prefer to spend most of their life time in city areas owing to inadequate vegetation or fruits available for them in this forest. Nilgai (bluebull) are in plenty in Jhalana but a leopard is not always successful in catching them by the throat.  In such a scenario, the feline is having to do with birds, which abound in its habitat, especially at the water troughs created by forest authorities in this tiny reserve. Peacocks, the biggest bird in size here, is an easy prey to this mammal.  The leopard has also been found preying upon Gray Partridge, Cormorant (at the edge of water bodies) and Greater Coucal - all ground birds sharing the same habitat with the mammal. The mammal was observed consuming a squirrel as well. However, ...

See pics: Arjun Kapoor wishes 'Rakhi sister' Katrina Kaif on her birthday in the best way ever 17.7.2018 DNA: India
We have now-and-then witnessed Arjun Kapoor and Katrina Kaif pulling each other's leg on social media and during media interactions. The two actors share a cute sibling-like bond and it is pretty evident from their social media posts and their comments on each other's posts as well.  The Tiger Zinda Hai actress is the Arjun's Rakhi sister and hence it doesn't come as a surprise to us when we see them often behaving like Tom and Jerry! Arjun, who amuses himself by picking on Katrina, took to Instagram on Monday to share a collage of two photos that show him sharing the frame with the actress. One is an old picture, while the other is a recently clicked one. The Ishaqzaade star wished Katrina on her birthday and wrote, "Happy birthday fellow cancerian #KatrinaKaif.

After setting the screens on fire with 'Dilbar', Nora Fatehi to show her sexy dance moves in Salman Khan’s 'Bharat' 16.7.2018 DNA: Money
Ex Bigg Boss contestant, model and actress Nora Fatehi has been winning hearts with her sexy dance and effortless moves. Nora, who made her Bollywood debut with Roar: The Tigers of Sundarbans, is taking one step at a time, or rather one song at a time. After blowing everyone's mind with her belly dancing in  Dilbar song from John Abraham’s Satyameva Jayate , the Indo-Moroccon-Canadian beauty is all set to feature in a special song in Salman Khan’s Bharat .  A source told Bollywoodlife.com that Salman and team recently finalised Nora for the song which is going to be an out and out dance number. However, nothing is clear on whether Salman will join Nora in the song or if it will be a solo track. Sometime back, Nora did drop hints on working on some great projects.  As quoted by the website, she said, “You will be seeing me in a few really great projects for sure. The announcements will be made very soon I am extremely excited and hoping I can do justice to everything that comes my way.” Now we know what ...

Section 377 debate: A natural trap LGBTQ fall for voluntarily 16.7.2018 DNA: Top News
Every time the Indian Supreme Court is invited to apply its mind of Section 377 of IPC, dealing with homosexuality, I see the same pattern repeating in social media debates. Starting with the video of male lions that mount for dominance (ps: as there is no penetration, these lions are not prosecutable under 377), to websites claiming of homosexual cheetahs and bonobos, the core theme focuses on one word, i.e. nature. I have to admit that the word nature is important to this debate; as, if we read Section 377, it states, "Whoever voluntarily has carnal inter­course against the order of nature…" But, as these debates are dragging on, not just in India, but globally, I have started seeing 'nature' to be an ugly trap that LGBTQ are falling for every time the subject crops up. Sex is a biological drive evolved by nature. Nature gives the highest reward in terms of pleasure to encourage all sexually reproducing creatures to engage in it. Nature wants us to have sex, as replication is the essence of life. As ...

India v/s England ODI Series: James Vince returns as hosts make two changes for decider 15.7.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
England have released two players ahead of the series-deciding third and final ODI against India while bringing in an in-from James Vince. The series finale is to be held in Headingley on Tuesday. Dawid Malan has been released from the squad to play for England Lions against India A. All-rounder Sam Curran too has been released for the same. The 27-year-old batsman Vince has been called up for the Leeds game.   For Hampshire, he scored 109 versus Somerset and 171 against Yorkshire in England's domestic one-day tournament. It is unlikely he will feature in the playing eleven on Tuesday, though. The three-match series is locked at 1-1. India won the first game and hosts England drew parity with their 86-run victory at the Lord's on Saturday. Squad Eoin Morgan (captain), Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler, Moeen Ali, Joe Root, Jake Ball, Liam Plunkett, Ben Stokes, Adil Rashid, David Willey, Mark Wood, James Vince. Article ...
All eyes on Rahane, Vijay as India A take on England Lions, Test team selection post match 15.7.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
With just a fortnight to go for the start of Test series, opener Murali Vijay and vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane will be looking to get into the groove in India A's last first-class engagement, against England Lions at the County Ground in Worcester, beginning on Monday. Vijay and Rahane last played the one-off Test against Afghanistan and were not part of the limited overs squad. The Indian Test squad for the England series is expected to be announced during or after the England Lions game as it will give them a clearer picture about the availability of certain players.   Rahane and Vijay are certainties in the Indian Test squad but unlike others, they would need more red-ball match time, which is the reason why the selectors, after consultation with the team management and A team coach Rahul Dravid, had chalked out a plan. The two other Test specialists -- Cheteshwar Pujara and Ishant Sharma -- have played reasonable amount of county cricket and with some of the others playing the limited overs formats, ...
