    Sri Lanka fast bowler Shaminda Eranga has been reported for a suspect action during the second test defeat against England in Durham, the International Cricket Council (ICC) said on Tuesday. "The match officials' report, which was handed over to the Sri Lanka team management, cited concerns about the legality of the 29-year-old's bowling action," the ICC said in a statement. "He is required to undergo testing within 14 days, and, during this period, Eranga is permitted to continue bowling in international cricket until the results of the testing are known." Eranga has taken 53 wickets in 18 tests for Sri Lanka but could not add to his tally at Chester-le-Street on Monday, where his team lost to England by nine wickets, allowing the hosts to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-test series.

Titled “Sachin v/s Lata Civil War”, the video posted on Facebook on May 26 by Tanmay, took jibes at the 86-year-old singer and the 43-year-old cricketer, which prompted the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena to lodge a police complaint against the comedian.

    Bollywood’s failure to stand by Tanmay Bhat proves it does not deserve the free speech it seeks Quartz - 3 hours ago

    Bollywood, for all its gloss and glamour, has often had to give in to the whims and fancies of a dictatorial Indian movie regulator. Be it random muting of dialogues or prudish removal of kissing scenes—even those involving 007—the scissor-happy Indian censor board’s tomfoolery with movies is legendary. Forget politically fraught or sexually explicit content,… More »
