Ranveer tweet ! and WWE threat !!

There is a particular way Mumbai Indians play or strategise  ~ 1) their bench strength [advisors – ex-players] would be more formidable than the playing X1 itself 2) they would buy strong players but some would not feature in their playing X1 (perhaps denying the other teams a change of usage) 3. Pinch hitter like Kieron Pollard would be kept back and allowed to play last 10 balls or so .. .. .. was something similar happening today – when MS Dhoni and Kedar Jadhav were defending along – having a player like Hardik Pandya waiting .. .. waiting !!

Deepika Padukone, who will be playing Ranveer Singh's on-screen wife in the upcoming film 83, shared a photo of herself wearing a bright green ensemble on her Instagram handle. She wrote the photo caption in "shuddh Hindi" and Ranveer is impressed beyond words. "Vishisht aakriti dharan karna (to take on a special shape)..." the caption read. Ranveer Singh is always in news ! ..  .. there are ads you love and there are ads that don’t really strike a chord with you. And then there are ads you might love or hate but just can’t ignore! Ranveer Singh’s latest Ching's ad seems to be falling in the latter category. With over a million likes and over a thousand comments, this ad seems to be gaining a lot of attention.  While some pointed out how absurd it is, others were left baffled at the superhero act.  Ranveer Singh was in full spirit, sartorially as well, during the ICC World Cup 2019 India versus Pakistan match at Manchester's Old Trafford. The 33-year-old actor was spotted cheering for India in a shirt and tie paired with a brown overcoat and checked trousers. Along with his outfit, Ranveer clubbed a printed muffler and added a dash of quirk with his glasses.  .. .. more so, it was his tweet that got him more attention !!

On a slower-than-usual Hampshire Bowl pitch, Afghanistan have limited India to 224 for 8 – their lowest ODI total while batting 50 overs since 2010. Mujeeb ur Rahman found zip and turn with the new ball to go past Rohit’s outside edge and hit the top of off stump. Mohammad Nabi then took over, stifling India further with his drifters and donkey drops. Two such drifters got rid of Rahul and Kohli. No.4 Vijay Shankar flickered briefly before part-time legspinner Rahmat Shah pinned him lbw. Dhoni and Jadhav came together at 135 for 4 in the 31st over, and the spinners continued to pile the pressure on the two batsmen. Dhoni’s plan was to simply block the spinners out of the attack and go after the weaklinks Naib and Aftab.  Finally MS dhoni  ran down the track only to the stumped for 28 off 52 balls – of which 33 were dots. Kedar Jadhav couldn’t get going either and scrapped his way to a 66-ball half-century. With Dhoni – and then Hardik – out of the way, Naib and Aftab varied their pace excellently to keep India to a meagre total.

I know nothing of this ~ for I don’t consider WWE as a sport at all – the ‘wrestling mania’.  World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc., aka WWE, is an American integrated media and entertainment company that is primarily known for professional wrestling. WWE has also branched out into other fields, including movies, real estate, and various other business ventures.  Followed the news and read that this man was born on Sept 1, 1965 -  son of Sulamita and Richard S. Heyman, a prominent personal injury attorney and World War II veteran. Wikipedia describes that he is of Jewish descent; his mother was a Holocaust survivor who suffered through experiences in Auschwitz, Bergen-Belsen, and the Łódź Ghetto.  Paul Heyman  is an American entertainment producer, professional wrestling manager.  He is currently signed to WWE, where he performs on the Raw brand. Heyman has also competed sporadically in matches, including the WWE Championship main event of the 2002 Rebellion pay-per-view.

The news is .. .. Ranveer Singh has been sent a legal notice, claimed WWE superstar Brock Lesnar’s advocate Paul Heyman. Heyman had earlier posted on social media that he would sue Singh for using his war cry- ‘Eat, Sleep, Conquer, Repeat’ with a twist.  …. .. the catch-phrase caught the ire of Heyman who appears annoyed stating that it is an issue of copyright.  In his latest tweet, Heyman also took a jibe at publications that referred to him as Lesnar’s manager, and not as an advocate. Heyman wrote, “I didn’t warn. I served noticed. And while I applaud @TheStatesmanLtd for their coverage of #YourHumbleAdvocate and @BrockLesnar, I must stress that I am not a manager (what an outdated, antiquated term). I am an #Advocate. And I’m the best #Advocate in history (sic).”

Ranveer Singh, who is currently in London preparing for the shoot of Kabir Khan’s film titled 83, attended India’s World Cup clash against Pakistan in Manchester. After the match, he clicked a picture with India allrounder Hardik Pandya and tweeted, “Eat. Sleep. Dominate. Repeat. The name is Hardik. Hardik Pandya.” Ranveer Singh is yet to make a comment on statements by Lesnar’s attorney. It is stated that this  is not the first time that Heyman has raised this issue. He had brought it up earlier when a tweet used the line, “Eat. Sleep. Finish games. Repeat. Life” while praising Indian wicketkeeper MS Dhoni.  The phrase  reportedly became prominent when Lesnar returned to WWE and is  printed on the back of Lesnar’s outfits that he wears while entering the ring in WWE.
