Yesterday (Wednesday 25th May), fans at Eden Gardens, Kolkata witnessed an unexpected spectacle after a long time, during the Eliminator contest between Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Lucknow Super Giants (LSG). An intruder seemed to be running towards Virat Kohliwho was in the field at the time.

Seeing the intruder running on the ground, a few guards rushed to interdict him. The men in charge did not let the intruder make contact with Kohli. One of the guards picked up the invader and literally rushed him over the border. Seeing the guard’s working style, Kohli was surprised. Here’s how the former RCB skipper reacted:

Seeing the scenes, fans also had different attributes for the guard. Some have referred to the WWE wrestling event while others have christened the guard as Baahubali, the fictional character from the Baahubali film series.

Royal Challengers Bangalore beat Lucknow Super Giants by 14 points

Also, reviewing the RCB vs LSG derby, Rajat Patidar certainly owned the show yesterday. By winning the delayed draw, LSG opted to play first. RCB seemed to be in trouble as skipper Faf du Plessis was dismissed on a Mohsin Khan Golden Duck.

Patidar, batting at number three, crushed the LSG bowlers at a strike rate of 207.40! The right-handed batter, full of confidence and good cricketing, scored 112 runs on 54 balls, with 12 fours and 7 sixes. Besides Patidar, Dinesh Karthik once again showed his worth, as the RCB keeper striker contributed to a quick finish. Karthik scored 37 points on 23 deliveries, with five limits and a six. For LSG, Mohsin Khan was the most economical bowler as the left arm point guard finished with excellent numbers of 4-25-1. RCB posted a whopping 207-for-four total.

LSG in response, except for skipper KL Rahul and Deepak Hooda, the batting unit couldn’t hold out for long. Rahul scored 79 carries from 58 deliveries, with 3 fours and 5 sixes. While Hooda scored 45 runs in 26 deliveries, with one limit and four sixes. Josh Hazlewood was the top performer while Harshal Patel again proved to be the most economical bowler for RCB yesterday. LSG managed to score 193 for six, as RCB won the game by 14 points.

RCB will now face Rajasthan Royals (RR) in Qualifier 2 on May 27 at Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad. The winner of these two teams will advance to the final to face Gujarat Titans (GT) on May 29 at the same venue.

Every word of Jurgen Klopp’s inspirational viral speech after Liverpool title loss – Liverpool FC https://withariane.com/every-word-of-jurgen-klopps-inspirational-viral-speech-after-liverpool-title-loss-liverpool-fc/ Mon, 23 May 2022 08:56:24 +0000 https://withariane.com/every-word-of-jurgen-klopps-inspirational-viral-speech-after-liverpool-title-loss-liverpool-fc/ After Liverpool’s abysmal Premier League defeat on Sunday, Jurgen Klopp gave an inspirational speech promising to ‘react’ next season.

After Liverpool’s abysmal Premier League defeat on Sunday, Jurgen Klopp gave an inspirational speech promising to ‘react’ next season.

For those watching at home and at Anfield, the more than two-hour experience on Sunday night was a rollercoaster ride.

As Liverpool lost a goal, before tying Wolves and eventually sealing a 3-1 victory, Man City conceded twice at Aston Villa to battle for a 3-2 win.

At one point the Reds were on course for the title – but City’s three points at the Etihad made that impossible, and the way they did it made it all the more frustrating.

But as always, Klopp was on hand to lift his spirits after the match, with a brilliant speech in his post-match interview with Sky Sports.

“If you want to win big, you have to be ready to lose big. That’s what we did today,” the Liverpool manager said.

“You have to be ready for some tough decisions and they – sometimes, most often – go against you.

“You can’t do more than give your best and that’s what the boys have done again.

“I couldn’t be more proud of this group, it’s absolutely exceptional.

“With the amount of games we had to play, we chased probably the best team in the world, really all the way, it’s absolutely special.

“But it is about reacting. And of course we can’t react tomorrow in the league, but next year we can and will.

The season is not yet over for Liverpool, of course, with a Champions League final to be played against Real Madrid on Saturday night.

Hopefully the Reds will bring home a seventh European Cup in the victory parade held in the city the following day, to accompany the FA Cup and League Cup.

Regardless of their success in Paris, Klopp is convinced there were already ‘enough reasons’ to celebrate the last years of silverware with the fans in the right way.

“For me, that’s extremely important,” he said.

“Today we come here, it’s obviously not a lap of honor for us, it’s for the people. The parade is for the people and not for us.

“People deserve it. Not only did they have a pandemic in between and all those things that made life really difficult.

“No, but we have already won two trophies. If we win a third, fine, otherwise we win two trophies.

“We did not celebrate the championship [in 2019/20]so that’s already – and celebrating life, after all the garbage we’ve been through during the pandemic – reason enough for me.

“If people don’t understand it, I think I appreciate it a little more, to be honest.

“Because it’s just for us.

“If people on the outside don’t understand how special this club is, I can’t help them.

“If you want to have a club with real passion, where you can also be really involved from the heart and not just other things, then you have to be part of Liverpool.”

Nagpur: Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Tope said on Monday that there was no possibility of a fourth wave of COVID-19 given the current situation.

Speaking to reporters here, Tope said nearly 200 to 250 cases are being reported every day in the state and there isn’t much of an increase in those numbers.

“The recovery rate of COVID-19 is very good and Maharashtra has had very good vaccination results. Therefore, I believe that in the current situation, there is no possibility of a fourth wave (of the viral infection),” the minister said.

On Sunday, Maharashtra reported 326 cases of COVID-19 bringing the state’s total to 78,82,802, while the death toll stood at 1,47,856 as no new deaths were recorded.

According to the state health department, 251 patients were discharged Sunday, leaving the state with 1,903 active cases of COVID-19.

When asked if the booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine was mandatory for everyone, Tope said there was no constraint, but healthcare and frontline workers, employees essential services and the elderly received booster shots in accordance with central government guidelines.

“However, we have not made the booster dose compulsory for everyone because there are no such guidelines from the central government,” he said.

Asked about Sambhajiraje Chhatrapati’s support for the upcoming six-seat Rajya Sabha polls in Maharashtra, Tope said, “We respect Sambhajiraje, and a final decision on his support will be taken together by Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav. Thackeray, NCP Chairman Sharad Pawar and senior Congressman Balasaheb Thorat.”

The terms of six Maharashtra Rajya Sabha members – Piyush Goyal, Vinay Sahastrabuddhe and Vikas Mahatme (all three from the BJP), P Chidambaram (Congress), Praful Patel (NCP) and Sanjay Raut (Shiv Sena) end on July 4.

Voting is scheduled for June 10. The BJP can win two seats in Rajya Sabha with the number of MPs it has, while ruling allies Shiv Sena, Congress and Maharashtra’s NCP can win one seat each.

The competition will therefore be for the sixth seat. Sambhajiraje, a member of the royal family of Kolhapur and a descendant of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, was previously a member appointed by the Speaker of the Upper House of Parliament.

He recently announced that he will stand in the next Rajya Sabha elections as an independent candidate and called on all parties to support him.

The Catholic Diocese of Gboko in Benue State has announced the suspension of the Reverend Father, Hycainth Alia, for showing interest in running for the governorship of the state.

Alia is among 12 gubernatorial hopefuls who purchased expression of interest and nomination forms from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to contest the party’s primary election.

But, a viral suspension letter addressed to all priests, religious and laity of the Catholic Diocese of Gboko, dated May 20, 2022 and signed by the Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Gboko, Bishop William Avenya, who is also the Apostolic Administrator of the Diocese Kastina-Ala Catholic, said the priest concerned had been warned earlier in accordance with the church’s rule on partisan politics.

The letter read: “I am writing to inform you of the suspension of my priest, the Rev. Jacinthe Iornem Alia of the Public Prosecutor’s Office after a series of warnings against her.

“The parent church does not allow its clerics to become involved in partisan politics on their own. 285, 3 CICs. You know my son, your brother and your priest bought the party form to run for Governor of Benue State under the All Progressives Congress which is generally against our calling.

“Therefore, to meet the spiritual and pastoral needs of the Church of the Catholic Diocese of Gboko, I have suspended him from the exercise of sacred ministry. This canonical suspension takes effect from the moment it is communicated to him and lasts until he ceases in absentia.

Reacting to the suspension, Head of Media and Publicity, Alia 2023 Gubernatorial Organization Kula Tersoo said it was normal church practice.

He noted that, as made clear in the suspension letter, Alia has only been suspended from celebrating public Eucharistic Masses, but remains a priest of the Catholic Church forever, adding that when his tenure ends ends up in the public service, he will resume his public masses. and ministry.

Tersoo said his director remained resolute as he urged his followers not to worry because the cleric was well-prepared and focused, stressing that he had seen the genuineness of the unrest for him to step in and help save the situation in the state.

He recalled that a former governor of the state, the late Reverend Fr. Moses Orshio Adasu, who served as the second civilian governor of the state, went through the same process.

Singer Brian Kennedy has announced that he has “washed his hands” of the Eurovision Song Contest.

The Belfast-born singer represented Ireland at the Eurovision Song Contest in Athens in 2006, where he sang ‘Every song is a cry of love’.

Her semi-final performance marked the 1,000th song to chart in Eurovision history before going 10th overall.

But now Brian tells The Star he’s done with Eurovision and will never be involved again – saying it’s a ‘waste of time’.

“I – like Serbia – washed my hands with Eurovision,” he said.

“I am asked to do something every year. I was one of the last people before Ryan O’Shaughnessy to reach the final. My performance was the 1,000th performance.

“Someone contacts me every year asking if you’re coming to sing at a party, or they ask me to judge songs…I don’t really get involved.”

When asked why, he explained: “I think because of the way it happened it’s a waste of time because you know how it’s structured now, God loves us , we don’t seem to be lucky.”

But he said Ireland should continue to be part of Eurovision, despite failing since 2018 with Ryan O’Shaughnessy.

“No, I think we are a country that never gives up, so I think we should restructure.



Brian Kennedy

“I got us into the final and Ryan did it. It’s possible.”

But despite his disappointment with Brooke Scullion this year, the 55-year-old thinks we need to get back to singing ballads and sounding more Irish, saying Brooke’s song That’s Rich “wasn’t Irish enough”.

“She was so much better than most other people. The only thing I thought was that it wasn’t Irish enough.

“I think culturally everything has become very watered down. Everything has become very homogeneous. Years ago we knew it was Ireland representing us. You could hear the accent, there was something Irish in the song. I think it’s dangerous to talk like everyone else and clearly it didn’t work.

“I think Linda Martin is right. There has to be some sort of return to what we do, which is great ballad and great vocal performance.

“I think we should come back with a completely structured idea but stick to the ballad.”

When asked if we should put an entry in our native language, he replied, “I love it (singing in Irish). That’s what I loved about Eurovision. I mean, maybe a mix of the two would be smart.

“A bit of Irish and English would be the way to go, but I think culturally we need to buffer and say this Ireland because I don’t think we’ve had that for a while,” he said. he said at the launch of Celebrity Fitness. Coach Paul Byrne’s new gym at Powerscourt Townhouse in Dublin.

Brian also said that radio stations not playing the song to help the artist’s Eurovision campaign was a real problem, adding that he had no radio support either.

“It’s a real problem. I had no support either. When my song came out, I think there were literally people phoning the radio stations saying why you weren’t playing that? We did not get an answer.

“There seems to be a very strange embarrassment about our own culture. I think it’s a hangover from a long time ago,” he added.

Organizers of the Eurovision Song Contest had to issue a lengthy statement in the early hours of Sunday morning, following calls to introduce a ban on jury voting following Ukraine’s victory.

Ukrainian act Kalush Orchestra propelled Britain’s Sam Ryder to the top spot on Saturday night, but show bosses admitted “some irregular voting patterns” showed up in results from six countries when the votes were tallied.

As reported by the Mirror, the votes of Georgia, Azerbaijan, Romania, Poland, Montenegro and San Marino have all been replaced by aggregate scores, after unusual trends were noticed at night.

Acknowledging the apparent controversy, the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) released a full statement.

The statement read: “In the analysis of the jury vote by pan-European voting partner the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) after the second dress rehearsal of the second semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2022, certain patterns irregular voting patterns were identified in the results of six countries.

“In order to comply with the contest’s voting instructions, the EBU has worked with its voting partner to calculate a substitute aggregated result for each country concerned for both the second semi-final and the grand final (calculated on the basis of results from other countries with voting records).

“This process has been recognized by the Independent Voting Monitor.”

The bosses added: “The EBU takes any alleged attempt to manipulate the vote in the Eurovision Song Contest very seriously and has the right to suppress such votes in accordance with the official voting instructions, whether or not such votes are likely to influence the results and/or the outcome of the vote.”

Fans watching at home took to social media to address the irregularities, with one Twitter user writing: “REMOVE ‘PROFESSIONAL’ JURIES!”

The drama follows the UK’s superb run to the top two in the competition, with contestant Sam Ryder winning the night’s jury vote with 283 points – the best return since 2017.



The Ukraine act had long been the favorite to win the annual event.

The TikTok superstar came second in Ukraine with his viral song Space Man, the first time in 20 years that the UK finished the night in first place.

Sam was amazed after hearing the news, saying, “There’s so much gratitude, what an experience.”

The Essex singer even won plaudits from the Prime Minister himself, as Boris Johnson tweeted his congratulations to Sam on Sunday.

Boris wrote: “Congratulations Ukraine for winning the @Eurovision Song Contest 2022.

“It’s a clear reflection not only of your talent, but also of your unwavering support for your fight for freedom.

“Incredibly proud of @SamRyderMusic and how brilliantly he represented the UK tonight.”

Every year when Eurovision sets its sights again, there are a handful of songs in the set of 40 that I will carry with me for the rest of my life – for better or for worse. For the best side of the spectrum, we have songs that I will never be able to live without again – I’m talking about Euphoria by Loreen, Fuego by Eleni Foureira. And then we have songs that I would gladly banish to the fiery pits of hell. I would name some of them, but I can’t, because they are banned. They are dead to me now. Here’s a roundup of the worst and best songs from Eurovision 2022 – enjoy the worst while you can, because after Saturday’s final… They will cease to exist.

The worst

Give That Wolf a Banana by Subwoofer

Ooooh, look how quirky Norway is guys! They call random people Keith, compliment teeth, and wear weird puppy play masks! I love a wacky Eurovision entrance and lyrics (one of my favorites from last year had the lyrics “drop eyelashes on the floor”, which is the weirdest visual), but not when he maddeningly tries to be funny and different. Stop trying to be a meme and go viral! I see through ! A decently produced song ruined by bitter annoyance.

Hope by STEFAN

Just what Eurovision needs, Estonia sends a pseudo-Orville Peck cowboy track that looks like a Wild West theme park parody. Pure nonsense.

Rockstars by Malik Harris

Germany sent its Aldi Pete Davidson to Eurovision 2022, with a landscape of hell loaded with clichés sung in cursive. When he starts rapping, I just wish for the freezing liberation of death.

Trenulețul de Zdob si Zdub and the Advahov brothers

I reluctantly have to tell you that this one made the finale, despite being manic, frenzied horror. Our Moldavian queen of ass notes from last year came out the door and a bunch of your dads are singing about a train. Fantastic.

Með Hækkandi Sól by Systur

Look, I’m sure they have some pretty girls and they sound good. I’m filing them here because I’m sick to death of three women with guitars coming out and everyone saying HAIM. They sound *nothing* like HAIM. At all. And maybe if they did, they’d be better off! Come on Iceland, after the last two years we need better.

The Boys Cry by Marius Bear

Exactly, Marius Bear. The boys are crying. And we do it after having to endure a hearing of it.

Lock Me Up by Circus Mircus

Have you ever seen the movie House of 1000 Corpses? Georgia’s entry into the canon of Eurovision 2022 songs strongly reminds me of Rob Zombie’s controversial film, only even more unsettling and menacing. Clown visuals are too much.

Disko by LPS

I love disco music and would hereby like to decree that it must be guarded and preserved from the hands of five dangerously uncharismatic Slovenian white men. End of.

Intent by Intelligent Music Project

If you call yourself a name as obnoxious as Intelligent Music Project, I’m going to need the song to be better than a bunch of budding rock dads doing their best to emulate Jon Bon Jovi. Terrible.

The best

Stefania by Kalush Orchestra

The fact that Ukraine is able to send people to compete in the midst of the current horrible climate is amazing, and it’s clear to see why Stefania is such a favorite to win when it’s a celebration shameless of Ukrainian culture and passion. It’s not as good as their 2021 entry, the iconic Shum, but it’s a solid entry that will no doubt do well.

Hold Me Closer by Cornelia Jakobs

Does Sweden ever fall short when it comes to Eurovision songs, no, it doesn’t – and 2022 continues its prowess. A really solid ballad, Cornelia Jakobs sounds great and after the lukewarm ballad slog from the first semi, it proves you can make a good Eurovision ballad that still stands out among bangers.

SloMo by Chanel

Pop perfection! Vocals, choreography, catchy, boppable – Spain aren’t coming to play this year and if Chanel isn’t comfortably in the top 10 with SloMo, I’ll honestly be speechless. Simple shine.

Brividi by Mahmood and Blanco

Mahmood should have won for Italy in 2019 – Soldi is one of the coolest, slickest Eurovision songs in living memory – but he’s back for 2022. This time he’s got the help de Blanco on a ballad that is a slightly different rhythm to Soldi but in no way less gripping. He’s just…classy. There is something magical that Mahmood brings that elevates the proceedings. And by the way, he’s gorgeous.

Dying Together by Amanda Tenfjord

Born in Norway but also raised in Greece, Greek-Norwegian Amanda went to school with pop icon Sigrid and they were in the same class! Die Together is nothing short of spectacular – a vocoder layered intro that swirls up to a powerful chorus. Chic, soulful, and effortlessly sung – in a fair world, it’ll comfortably top 10.

Lights out by We Are Domi

Pure and unapologetic dance pop magic from the Czech Republic – Lights Off has a hard-hitting beat with which you can imagine Rita Ora dominating the UK charts. Big vocals, big beats and a feeling of euphoria. One of the best Eurovision Songs of 2022 without a doubt.

That’s Rich by Brooke

Alright, I’ll say it: That’s Rich is the best song in the contest. What Brooke has served us here from Ireland is pop magic. Bratty, rambunctious, campy, baby voice with the perfect amount of fries. Look how much fun she is having in the thumbnail! My queen. My winner. I love how she sings “sick of you now” like “sickeryanow” in a millisecond. Pop superstar behavior.

Halo by Lumix and Pia Maria

One of the biggest casualties of Eurovision 2022 is that Halo isn’t one of the songs in the final. The Austrian dance banger is a ball blast against the wall that deserved its spot on some of the HELL we’re going to have to endure in its place. Simple but a high BPM explosion!

Eat Your Salad by Citi Zēni

The biggest casualty of Eurovision 2022 is that a banger that opens with “Instead of meat, I eat vegetables and pussy” is not among the songs in the finale. Eat Your Salad is clever in all the good ways that Give That Wolf a Banana isn’t. It has an Uptown Funk-esque musicality with a plant-based message. And Citi Zēni is charming as hell, real showmen in fun costumes like an X-rated Latvian The Wiggles. JUSTICE TO EAT YOUR SALAD
