Pune: Indian cricket team may like to revisit its 50-over template while picking up pieces from the Friday carnage with an aim to complete a hat-trick of series wins against England in the third and final ODI here on Sunday. On batting belters that’s been on offer at the Gahunje Stadium, England hit an astounding 20 sixes in a 337-run chase which became a cakewalk, thanks to inpet bowling from spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Krunal Pandya. Never before has captain Virat Kohli missed Ravindra Jadeja as much as he would have on Friday when Jonny Bairstow and Ben Stokes took the mickey out of India’s left-arm wrist and orthodox spinners. In the bowling department, Kuldeep scripted an unwanted record when he conceded 8 sixes, most by an Indian bowler. He leaked 84 runs in the second game after giving 64 runs in the first. And, so did Krunal Pandya, who gave 72 runs in six overs with an embarrassing average of 12 per over. So, in all probability, the duo could be replaced by leg-spinner … [Read more...] about India vs England, 3rd ODI Match Preview: Will Virat Kohli Revisit Template in Series-Decider?
A Foodpanda customer was frustrated after what he felt should have been a quick 1km food delivery ended up being 45 minutes late . Stomp contributor Andy, a resident at Block 129B Canberra Street, said he ordered A&W from its Canberra Plaza outlet via Foodpanda on Wednesday night (April 7). According to Google Maps, the two destinations are 1km apart and would take four minutes by bike. Andy said: "The order was picked up at 10pm. By right, it's less than five minutes of riding from the restaurant to my house. But the rider went to Yishun, I don't know for what." According to screenshots that Andy shared, the rider said she was unable to find Andy's address and needed 10 more minutes as she had multiple orders. Andy also realised that the rider had headed to Yishun, which he found illogical. The Stomp contributor said: "Even got multiple orders also won’t be so far away right? "The estimated delivery time by Foodpanda kept jumping from 10.05pm to 10.40pm." Andy … [Read more...] about ‘Enough of your template replies’: Canberra resident furious after Foodpanda rider makes detour to Yishun, ends up 45 minutes late
NEW DELHI: Fuel prices are skyrocketing and the aam janta will sooner or later take a leap of faith to alternate sources which are affordable even if they think they don’t need to. The average Indian consumer has been hit below the belt and one of the practical solutions in the foreseeable future has appeared to be electric mobility. Electric mobility gained a lot of traction during the pandemic and with the govt trying to give the sector a much-needed boost, it looks like the clean and emerging powertrain has a brighter future in the country after all. TOI Auto got into a conversation with Sohinder Gill , Director General, Society of Manufacturers of Electric Vehicles ( SMEV ) to understand if the fuel price hike will actually act as an impetus for India to adopt electric mobility especially when budget EVs have been getting enough attention in recent times and how exactly can the Indian govt help increase the awareness towards the niche segment. Time to make the switch? … [Read more...] about FAME-II misfired, Delhi govt setting template for EVs: Sohinder Gill
One year after its release, Doom Eternal is now complete. The first-person shooter just got its second expansion, The Ancient Gods Part Two , which caps off the Doomslayer’s story for now. The paid DLC offers some of the game’s toughest content yet, as well as a new weapon that completely changes the flow of battle. The Ancient Gods Part Two is an excellent way to round out a successful year for Doom Eternal . Despite boasting a relatively short campaign, the game remained relevant over a 12-month period — an ideal that many modern games desperately aim to achieve. Unlike some of its peers, the game managed to pull that off with only two DLCs and a handful of tweaks along the way. The secret to Doom Eternal ’s success isn’t such a secret. By resisting modern live-service trends, the game’s boilerplate approach to traditional DLC shows that studios may be trying too hard to keep players hooked. The answer is, quite simply, good content. One year later When Doom … [Read more...] about Doom Eternal: The Ancient Gods should be the template for video game DLC
