Speaking on Star Sports show Cricket Live, Rahman dedicated songs to CSK stars Dhoni and Raina. "I would like to dedicate the song 'Chale Chalo' from the movie Lagaan to MS Dhoni, as it motivates people to play cricket together. And for Suresh Raina, I would like to dedicate the song 'Mangta Hai Kya', because whenever I went to Bangalore, they were listening to a lot of songs from Rangeela." Earlier in the day, former India batsman Gautam Gambhir said that Dhoni should bat at number four or five and not below that for his side. Dhoni generally comes in to bat at number 7 and in the first game against Delhi Capitals he failed to get going and got out for a two-ball duck. His side lost the game despite setting up a target of 189 as Shikhar Dhawan (85) and Prithvi Shaw (72) provided a flying start to the side and stitched a 138-run stand for the opening wicket. Speaking on Star Sports show Cricket Live, Gambhir said, "MS Dhoni should be batting higher, that's what matters because … [Read more...] about IPL 2021: PBKS vs CSK: AR Rahman dedicates Lagaan, Rangeela songs to MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina
Humming song choir
It is no secret that Oscar-winning music composer AR Rahman is a big Chennai Super Kings fan. With CSK in a spot of bother in the ongoing season of the IPL, Rahman dedicated two iconic Bollywood songs for CSK stars MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina – who retired from international cricket last year – with the hope that it would inspire them in the ongoing season. “I would like to dedicate the song ‘Chale Chalo’ from the movie Lagaan to MS Dhoni, as it motivates people to play cricket together. And for Suresh Raina, I would like to dedicate the song ‘Mangta Hai Kya’, because whenever I went to Bangalore, they were listening to a lot of songs from Rangeela,” Rahman said during Cricket Connected on Star Sports. Rahman also gave valid reasons for dedicating the particular songs. CSK did not get its campaign off to a winning start as they would have hoped for after a forgetful 2020 season where they finished last. The Super Kings lost to Delhi Capitals in their season opener. They would now … [Read more...] about IPL 2021: Oscar-Winning Music Composers AR Rahman Dedicates Iconic Bollywood Songs For CSK Stars MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina

Rutgers men’s basketball won its first NCAA Tournament game since 1983 on Friday night over No. 7 seeded Clemson by a score of 60-56. It’s the first time the No. 10 seeded Scarlet Knights are in March Madness since 1983, and the Rutgers fans at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis were sent into a frenzy. “This team is tough,” Pikiell said. “They’ve been tough for two years. I’m proud of them. They defended. Clemson’s really good. That’s a really good basketball team that plays great defense. We had enough grit and enough Jersey tough to get ourselves a win today. Proud that we’re advancing.” Geo Baker scored the game’s final points with just over five seconds remaining on an offensive rebound to put the Scarlet Knights up four points.

Rutgers football head coach Greg Schiano also … [Read more...] about Rutgers wins first NCAA Tournament game since 1983 with victory over Clemson
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — The Michigan football team once again suffered a surprising loss, and it was once again largely at the hands of a woeful defensive effort. This time, the Wolverines allowed 38 points, 460 yards of offense and 28 first downs to No. 13 Indiana en route to a 38-21 loss. Throughout the game, Michigan fans continued to place blame on defensive coordinator Don Brown. Once viewed as among the best defensive coordinators in the game, Brown’s defense has surrendered 36.0 points per game over Michigan’s last five games, including four losses. After the game, Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh backed Brown, however, stating that he still holds confidence in the veteran coach’s ability to change course. “Yes I do,” Harbaugh said. “Very much so. I love all of our coaches, every coach on this staff. They work extremely hard, their schemes are very good and they’re coaching good. Just keep forging ahead, stay after it to make that next step. Critical step.” Rather, when … [Read more...] about Jim Harbaugh backs Don Brown after Michigan’s loss to Indiana
