Ranji Trophy: Kunal Chandela tons help Delhi seize control

Gautam Gambhir and Kunal Chandela shared a 232-run partnership to put Delhi in a commanding position on Day 2 of their Ranji Trophy semi-final against Bengal.

The unheralded Kunal Chandela showed maturity beyond years as his ton took Delhi to a commanding 271 for three against Bengal on the second day of the Ranji Trophy semi-final, on Monday.

Kunal Chandela is a refreshing change of what has been the template of a Delhi cricketer. “I have benefited a lot from University cricket. I have heard how past greats of Delhi cricket have emerged from University cricket. My selection in Delhi Ranji Trophy has been on basis of back to back Vizzy Trophy triple tons. You learn to play day’s game from Vizzy Trophy,” 23-year-old Chandela said after the match.

 With three half-centuries and now his maiden hundred in Ranji Trophy semi-final against Bengal, Chandela has been the find of Delhi cricket.

“I had my exams on 20th but I had to skip it. I take time out to study and attend lectures when I get time,” he said.

He believes time spent in boarding school in Dehradun has helped him become more self-reliant.

“I studied my 9th and 10th standard at Indian Public School where Rishabh Pant was my junior in boarding school. My childhood coach has been Manoj Rawat,” the son of an electrical contractor said.

He thanked Gautam Gambhir for his constant support. “Gautam bhaiyya told me to play the way I know the best. He told me to remain free while batting. When I tried a sweep shot, he told that since I am hitting well straight, I don’t need to play across,” he said.

His temperament to bat for long hours has come for praise but wouldn’t it hamper his chances to get an IPL team.

“I don’t play cricket with an intention of being picked for an IPL team. You dream to play for India and if you do well, you can also play IPL,” the confident Chandela signed off.

Chandela hit four boundaries in an Amit over as the pressure was let loose. Someone like Shami was also unable to bowl maiden overs.

Gautam Gambhir comes up to fund the education of martyred Kashmiri cop’s daughter

Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir has always been quite vocal about his feelings for the Indian Armed Forces. He is proud and has always asked all the people of India to respect the security forces and personnel.

Gambhir said on Tuesday that he would pay for the education of the daughter of assistant sub-inspector (ASI) of police Abdul Rasheed who was martyred in an attack by terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir’s Anantnag.

He announced the news on Twitter. “Zohra, I can’t put u 2 sleep wid a lullaby but I’ll help u 2 wake up 2 live ur dreams. Will support ur education 4 lifetimes. Zohra, Plz don’t let those tears fall as I doubt even Mother Earth can take d weight of ur pain. Salutes to ur martyred dad ASI,Abdul Rashid,” Gambhir tweeted.

Earlier in the year, Gambhir had announced that his foundation would pay for all the education expenses for children of 25 CRPF personnel martyred in an attack by Maoists in Chhattisgarh’s south Sukma.

When Zohra got to know about this huge announcement she thanked the cricketer and said that she wants to be a doctor when she grows up.

The left-hander stated that he would fund the education of these children through the Gautam Gambhir Foundation and that process to ensure the same was already underway.

The Gambhir-led Kolkata Knight Riders had team sported black arm bands during an Indian Premier League match against Rising Pune Supergiant in Pune as a tribute to the martyred CRPF men.

The Delhi cricketer said it was not easy to focus on the match after the Chhattisgarh incident.

Even though the stylish left-hander isn’t wearing India colours at the moment, he continues to strike a chord with fans off the field. In a touching initiative, Gambhir launched a campaign last month to feed the poor and hungry free of cost at West Patel Nagar in New Delhi. With the help of this initiative, Gambhir wants to make sure nobody goes hungry.

Senior Indian batsman Gautam Gambhir replied to his tweet in the following way asking him to leave India: “A suggestion @MirwaizKashmir why don’t u cross the border? U will get better fireworks (Chinese?), Eid celebs there.I can help u wid packing.”

A few days back, Farooq had cheered for the Pakistan Cricket Team after their win over England in the first semi-final match of the ICC Champions Trophy.

Hurriyat Forum chairman also tweeted, “As we were finishing Taraweeh, could hear the firecrackers bursting, well-played team #Paksitan. Best of luck for the finals!

This tweet of his outraged many, including political leaders, who asked media and other people to ignore the comments made by `anti-national elements like him.` This is not the first time Gambhir is sighted tweeting against the Kashmiri separatist but is often seen pulling them down prior to this final match as well.

Seems like the match is over but the game is still going on.

After Virender Sehwag, Now Gautam Gambhir Post’s Video For Free Speech. Watch Video.

It’s been a week when Ramjus college ruckus broke out, and the dust is not seen to be settling down soon. The ruckus broke out at Ramjus college shook the nation and attracts media prime time slots.

The matter took a 360 degree turn when Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag trolled Gurmehar Kaur stand against ABVP member’s hooliganism and goondaism, and joining the chorus, Randeep Hooda, too, starts to troll the 20-year student of LSRC. And the matter turns out to be a whole political afterwards.

Just like India, which has been divided into two frontlines and ideologies on free speech, Indian cricket team, too, has seen two different ideologies. After, Virender Sehwag “Patriotic” stand against Gulmehar Kaur, comes the Gautam Gambhir video, showing his support for the same.

In his 1min long video, Gautam Gambhir clears his stand towards all the drama that had surrounded Gulmehar Kaur. The cricketer, unlike his mate Virender Sehwag, cleared his stand on free speech and clears that everyone in the country is free to express his/her opinion.

The ruckus broke out after the invitation to Umar Khalid, who was booked on sedition charges last year in JNU, sent out to give a speech on Protest and country. Soon, the ABVP, BJP’s student’s political wing, came into play to mark their protest against the invitation sent to Umar Khalid, and the clash broke out against the members of ABVP and AISA.

Soon, the video by Lady Sri Ram College student broke the internet on her demand to the students to stand against the goons and hooliganism shown by the ABVP members at Ramjus College. In her 4mins 23sec long video made the controversial headline, which left India divided into` two different ideologies. One group supporting Gurmehar Kaur stand and backing her for the bold step, and the other which is against and doing whatever possible (rape threats included) to crush down her voice.
