Wouldn’t say I was the greatest, but I was a better athlete than Botham, Hadlee, Imran put together: Kapil Dev

Kapil Dev is often compared with Ian Botham, Richard Hadlee and Imran Khan but the Indian legend personally believes that he was a better athlete than all three combined.

Cricket : Kapil Dev on his comparison with Botham, Hadlee, Imran

India’s 1983 World Cup-winning captain Kapil Dev opened up on his comparison with the likes of Imran Khan, Ian Bothan and Richard Hadlee, saying he was the fittest of all three as an athlete if not the greatest.

Imran, Hadlee, Kapil and Ian Botham stand out for their outstanding contribution and incredible performances. These four players played a crucial role in improving the overall performance of their respective teams.

Kapil Dev led the Indian team to their first World Cup victory, whereas Imran Khan gave Pakistan an identity and made them world champions.

With Ian Botham, England played the best cricket of that era and he was often the catalyst in their success. New Zealand had little success at the international level, but in Richard Hadlee, they found the match-winner and their role model.

“I wouldn’t say I was the greatest, but I was a better athlete than all three put together,” Kapil told former India cricketer and current head coach of Indian women’s team WV Raman on Inside Out podcast.

“The best bowling was Richard Hadlee’s – he was like a computer among the four of us.”

Kapil was impressed by Imran Khan’s dedication and determination to get better as he rated former Pakistan skipper the most hardworking player he has ever seen.

“Wouldn’t say Imran Khan was the best athlete or the most natural, but he was the most hardworking player we’ve seen. When he started out, he looked like an ordinary bowler, but then he became a very hardworking fast bowler and he learned by himself. And then he worked on his batting as well,” Kapil added.

Kapil also rated Hadlee as the best bowler among the four and called Botham as a true all-rounder.

“Ian Botham was a true all-rounder – in given conditions, he could win a match on his own. I wouldn’t say Hadlee was the best batsman,” the former India captain said.

“Botham could do damage to the opposition both with bat [and ball]. Imran could run through the [opposition] team, but his ability as a leader was far better. To control the Pakistan team, he had a challenge.”

Things Are Very Different in Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy Season 2

The Umbrella Academy season two arrives on Friday, July 31 on Netflix.

The Umbrella Academy Season 2

The Umbrella Academy season two is almost here, and if you’re not caught up, you better get caught up. 

The Netflix superhero drama was good fun last season, but season two kicks things up a notch as the entire family is thrown into the 1960s. But as Aidan Gallagher, who plays Five, explains in the video above, they don’t all just land in the 60s together. 

After the end of last season, when the world was about to end and Five whisked his adopted siblings away to save their lives, the whole family is strewn about in Dallas, randomly between 1960 and 1963 with no idea if anyone else is alive. Five arrives last, in 1963, just after the John F. Kennedy assassination and just as the world is about to end once again, giving him yet another apocalypse to go back to try and prevent, just like he had to do in season one. 

But things are different this time, and the series has improved in almost every way as a result. The early 60s were a particularly difficult time for anyone who wasn’t a straight white man with a normal human torso, which means all of the Umbrella Academy kids are truly some fish out of water here. That allows for deeper stories, higher stakes, and some incredibly cool visuals. Season one was good, but season two is a true joy. 

Here’s where you can expect to find each of the family members of the Umbrella Academy as season two picks up: 

Five: Five is still a middle aged man (and former assassin who survived the apocalypse) trapped in the body of a teen, and after preventing one apocalypse and triggering another apocalypse and then accidentally transporting his family into different years in the 60s, he’s got a lot of work to do. 

[amazon box=”B07H97FRX5″ “small”]  

Vanya (Ellen Page): After accidentally almost murdering her sister, being locked in a cage by her brother, making it through an abusive relationship, and causing an apocalypse, Vanya has settled into the countryside and befriended a nice housewife (Marin Ireland) and her troubled son.  

The Umbrella Academy

Netflix

Allison (Emmy Raver-Lampman): Allison’s still traumatized from almost dying, but she’s found a community that took her in and she’s become a civil rights organizer who’s trying to make her voice heard without actually using the true power of her voice. 

Luther (Tom Hopper): Luther works as a bouncer and brings in extra cash by using his giant ape body in boxing matches, while obviously never forgetting how in love he is with his (adopted) sister. This goes about as well as you might expect it to. 

Diego (David Castaneda): Diego quickly gets thrown into a mental hospital and makes a new friend named Lila (Ritu Arya), but if you think a guy with knife-throwing superpowers is going to agree to stay locked up for very long, you would be mistaken. 

Klaus (Robert Sheehan): Klaus seems to have accidentally become a cult leader, which feels right. (We’re not saying we’d join a cult led by Robert Sheehan, but we’re also not saying we wouldn’t.) 

Ben (Justin H. Min): Ben’s still dead, but at least he’s now a ghost thanks to Klaus. Klaus is the only one who can see Ghost Ben, which makes for an incredibly entertaining season of brotherly shenanigans. 

How each one of the Hargreeves family members ended up in their current situation will play out over the course of the season, along with the story of how they reunite in order to stop the next apocalypse. 

The second season premieres tomorrow on Netflix, and be sure to stay tuned for more coverage from the entire Umbrella Academy cast…especially after you get to that cliffhanger.

9 die after consuming hand sanitiser in Andhra Pradesh, police say they couldn’t find liquor

It started with one beggar at a temple in Prakasam district complaining of severe burning sensation in his stomach. He succumbed while being taken to the hospital on Wednesday night.

Andhra Pradesh Prakasam : Kurichedu

At least nine people died when they consumed alcohol-based hand sanitiser in Andhra Pradesh’s Prakasam district in the last two days, the police said.

The tragedy took place in Kurichedu town. While one person died late on Wednesday night, two others succumbed on Thursday night and six others on Friday morning.

Three of the deceased are believed to be beggars and the remaining are the local slum dwellers. In all, 20 people believed to have consumed sanitiser in the last two days.

The deceased have been identified as Anugonda Srinu (25), Bhogem Tirupataiah (35), Guntaka Rami Reddy (60), Kadiam Ramanaiah (28), Raja Reddy (65), Ramanaiah (65), Babu (40), Charles (45) and Augustine (45).

Prakasam district Superintendent of Police (SP) Siddharth Kaushal told HT that these people had consumed sanitiser due to non-availability of liquor as there was a lockdown in force in Kurichedu to contain the spread of Covid-19.

It started with one beggar at a local Goddess Durga temple complaining of severe burning sensation in his stomach. He succumbed while being taken to the hospital on Wednesday night.

[amazon box=”B07H97FRX5″ “small”]  

On Thursday morning, two others collapsed due to severe stomach pain. The family members, with the support of locals, shifted them to the government hospital at Darsi town, but they succumbed late in the night. Six others, who were also admitted to the hospital with similar complaints, died on Friday morning.

Kaushal said sanitisers from all local shops were seized for lab tests. The police are trying to ascertain if the victims had consumed raw sanitiser or mixed it with spurious liquor.

Kurichedu and areas around the town have been under lockdown for the last 10 days due to spike in Covid-19 positive cases. All the liquor stores remained closed.

Family members of the victims told the police that they had begun to fall unconscious hours after consuming sanitiser. The quantities of the sanitiser each one of them consumed is not yet known.

The Andhra Pradesh government had reopened the liquor shops on May 4 after a prolonged period of lockdown. Serpentine queues were witnessed at all the outlets across the state.

The state government, however, hiked the rates and reduced the number of outlets with the contention that it would discourage people from resorting to drinking.

Katie Holmes says her new showed could be watched with whole family together

Katie Holmes spoke about the new film she stars in alongside Josh Lucas. Read what she had to say below!

The Secret like you’ve never seen it before.

Rhonda Byrne’s best-selling book is hitting the screen with Katie Holmes at the helm, and E! News got the inside scoop about the fictionalized adaptation, The Secret: Dare to Dream, from the actress herself ahead of the film’s release, Friday, July 31.

“I was a huge fan of the book and I love Rhonda,” Katie revealed during the exclusive conversation. “And I have always wanted to work with Andy Tennant, our director.”

Tennant is responsible for films such as Hitch and Sweet Home Alabama—the latter of which stars Josh Lucas, who’s also in The Secret: Dare to Dream.

Katie described Tennant’s films as having “such a magical quality to them.”

“So when we sat down to talk about The Secret, you know, I was very excited,” the mother to 14-year-old Suri Cruise said. “And I felt like he helped to create characters that are very grounded and very real and relatable, who are going on this journey from struggle to hope.”

Katie continued, “And that’s everyone’s journey. You’re gonna struggle in life, and it’s just figuring out how to cope with it.”

According to the film’s official synopsis, Katie plays Miranda Wells, a young widow trying to make ends meet while raising three children. Then, one day, a devastating storm introduces her to a mysterious handyman named Bray (Lucas), who’s positivity reignites the family’s spirit. However, he has a secret—one that could change everything.

The characters introduce a completely different side to the concepts found in The Secret, as Byrne’s version is a self-help book.

As Katie explained to E! News, she feels “like the movie is a very good version of what is in the book.”

“I mean, obviously [The Secret]’s not a narrative, so we had to find these characters to embody that which people connected to in the book.”

Katie was especially fond of her own character, Miranda.

[amazon box=”B07H97FRX5″ “small”]  

“She’s a single mom with three kids who lost her husband and really taking on the weight of being the financial provider, the emotional provider, so many things,” the actress explained. “And she’s so many things to so many people, but not enough for herself.”

Katie continued, “I feel like what was smart about this character that they created is she really needs something to hold onto. She really needs hope. She really needs inspiration. So you really see it exemplified in her.”

Ultimately, Katie wants the film to be a positive addition to a year that’s “been one of a lot of shock and uncertainty.”

“So to put something out there that hopefully is an escape to people and offers magic and hope, I feel really happy about that,” she added. “And it’s a movie that the whole family can watch together.”

The Secret: Dare to Dream will be available to rent through on-demand platforms beginning Friday, July 31.

Ellen DeGeneres Apologizes for Workplace Complaints in Letter to Her Staff

Ellen DeGeneres wrote a letter to her staff promising changes after Warner Bros. conducts an internal investigation on claims of workplace misconduct

The Ellen DeGeneres Show : Ellen addresses workplace problem at her place

Ellen DeGeneres has addressed her show’s staff after reports emerged of multiple workplace complaints. 

In a letter obtained, the syndicated talk show host explained that she was disappointed to learn of the accusations made against members of her staff. “On day one of our show, I told everyone in our first meeting that The Ellen DeGeneres Show would be a place of happiness—no one would ever raise their voice, and everyone would be treated with respect. Obviously, something changed, and I am disappointed to learn that this has not been the case,” DeGeneres wrote.

She continued, “For that, I am sorry. Anyone who knows me knows it’s the opposite of what I believe and what I hoped for our show.”

DeGeneres then acknowledged that her “success,” which includes 30 Emmy awards, 20 People’s Choice Awards and more, would not have been possible “without all of your contributions.” She said, “My name is on the show and everything we do and I take responsibility for that.”

For this reason, she stated that she and Warner Bros. are working together to determine the next steps to “correct the issues” they found through an internal investigation. 

“As we’ve grown exponentially, I’ve not been able to stay on top of everything and relied on others to do their jobs as they knew I’d want them done. Clearly some didn’t,” she shared. “That will now change and I’m committed to ensuring this does not happen again.”

It was previously alleged that the show’s executive producers, Ed GlavinMary Connelly and Andy Lassner, were the individuals accused of workplace misconduct, and not DeGeneres herself. They said in their own statement at the time, “For the record, the day to day responsibility of the Ellen show is completely on us.”

[amazon box=”B07H97FRX5″ “small”]  

This assertion was seemingly confirmed by DeGeneres, who wrote in her letter that “people who work with me and for me are speaking on my behalf and misrepresenting who I am.” She added, “That has to stop.”

“As someone who was judged and nearly lost everything for just being who I am, I truly understand and have deep compassion for those being looked at differently, or treated unfairly, not equal, or—worse—disregarded. To think that any one of you felt that way is awful to me,” she concluded her letter, adding that she’s grateful people felt “safe” enough to come forward with their experiences. “Again, I’m so sorry to anyone who didn’t have that experience. If not for COVID, I’d have done this in person, and I can’t wait to be back on our stage and see you all then.”

Ellen DeGeneres

Michael Rozman/Warner Bros.

In a statement to E! News, Warner Bros. affirmed their commitment to addressing the accusations of workplace misconduct, which were determined through interviews conducted with current and former staff members. “It was important to both Warner Bros. and Ellen that as many people as possible attached to the program could be heard. The Ellen DeGeneres Show is, and has always strived to be, a place that brings positivity to the world,” the statement read in part. “And though not all of the allegations were corroborated, we are disappointed that the primary findings of the investigation indicated some deficiencies related to the show’s day-to-day management. We have identified several staffing changes, along with appropriate measures to address the issues that have been raised, and are taking the first steps to implement them.”

They concluded, “We are confident this course of action will lead us to the right way forward for the show.”

BuzzFeed News previously published accounts from current and former staff members who alleged they were subjected to a “toxic work environment” on the set.
