Actor Ajith Kumar and Nayanthara’s much-awaited Viswasam trailer is out and the film is set to hit the screens around Pongal 2019. Ajith looks handsome in the salt and pepper look as he drives away his enemies with some powerful punch lines. At one point in the trailer, while Jagpathi Babu, who was initially assumed to be the villain, says he is the hero of his story; Ajith laughs and explains how he is the villain. From the past, when Ajith’s character falls in love with Nayanthara’s and flirts with her to the present, when they are married with a kid, the leading man’s role is much like the one in his previous outing Veeram, which was also directed by Siva. The look is also quite similar and set in Theni district. The plot of the film seems to revolve around Ajith and Jagbathi’s fight for a peice of land. At the end of the trailer, we hear the leading man tell someone over the phone, “Let’s meet one on … [Read more...] about Viswasam trailer: Ajith Kumar is the veshti wearing, bike-riding dapper villain.

IPL 2019 FINAL by Cricbuzz Staff • Last updated on ShareTweet The umpires have a chat with Pollard during the final © BCCI Kieron Pollard has been fined 25% of his match fee for showing dissent at an umpire's decision in the final of IPL 2019. Pollard, who scored an unbeaten 41, was visibly unhappy with a decision made by umpire Nitin Menon in the final over of Mumbai's innings. The umpire's decision to not adjudge a delivery by Dwayne Bravo as wide irked Pollard. Mocking the decision, Pollard went on to take strike well away from the stumps and near the 'wide-line' before pulling away as the bowler ran in. This prompted both the on-field umpires, Menon and Ian Gould, to have a chat with Pollard who went on to his normal stance and complete the innings. Although the offence wasn't explicitly specified, IPL released a statement after the final specifying the fine and that Pollard hadn't contested the sanction. "Mr Pollard … [Read more...] about Pollard fined for Code of Conduct breach in IPL final
IPL 2019 by Cricbuzz Staff • Last updated on ShareTweet Jasprit Bumrah bowled two outstanding overs in the death to finish with figures of 2 for 14. © Cricbuzz Lasith Malinga bowled a dream final over, defending nine runs, including getting Shardul Thakur out LBW when two were needed off the last ball, to help Mumbai Indians defeat Chennai Super Kings by a solitary run and claim their fourth IPL title.

From zero to hero Malinga had profusely leaked runs and boundaries off the 16th over - … [Read more...] about Mumbai Indians edge CSK by one run to clinch title
CPL 2019 by Cricbuzz Staff • Last updated on ShareTweet Can Shoaib Malik and Co. turn it around in this final? © Getty Caribbean Premier League finals have invariably been about the richness of T20 sport, the culmination of a tournament in a parallel world that's accessible to all but attended by some. There's strong local flavour in that sense, and there's colour and crowd. There's three different winners in six editions. And there's one perpetual runner-up. Amazon Guyana Warriors have come out losers in four out of their four finale appearances. And here they come for the trophy again, not dead on their feet but better prepared than ever before. There's a good reason why this might be their year. And it doesn't manifest in The Shawshank Redemption's umpteenth invocation of hope on internet but in how the Warriors have remained unbeaten this season. Warriors have won 11 games on the trot now, three of them -- two in the league … [Read more...] about Perfect Warriors look to set right an imperfect reputation
Princess Haya of Jordan was seen arriving to the Britain's High Court on Tuesday for the first day of hearings in a case involving members of Jordan and Dubai's royal families. The 45-year-old Haya is a half-sister of King Abdullah II of Jordan and wife to Dubai Sheikh and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. After reportedly fleeing Dubai in July, the princess asked the UK court for custody of her two children. The children are believed to be an 11-year-old girl and 7-year-old boy. She also asked for a forced marriage protection order for the benefit of the children, and a non-molestation order for herself. The non-molestation orders serve to give legal protection against harassment, threats, or violence by a partner or other family member. In a July statement, both sides said that the process did not concern divorce and was limited to the welfare of the children. The 70-year-old sheikh has applied to the family division of the High Court for the … [Read more...] about Princess Haya attends hearing in London family court
