Typewriter: Review

Typewriter: Review

Everyone loves to haunt ghost, not in real life of course but in movies. Have you ever seen a couple of kids almost slove the mystery of killing the ghost but it lives at the end for part II?

The typewriter is directed by Sujoy Ghosh who also directed kahaani, kahaani 2, badla and many more. Sujoy Ghosh directed his first horror web series which is quite good.


An obsessed writer searching for a ghost story that really happened in Sultanpur. Madhav Matthew writes the book on the name the ghost of Sultanpur based on the true story that really happened during his time. The get published and famous among its genre at that time.

The story of the book is based on a man named Fhakir, who is the son of a witch, who can take the life of a human just by her hand. Upon request by a man, she visited his father who is on the verge of passing away. The Father requested the witch to take his life to make his death less painful.

Due to differences in the will, the Man and his siblings who requested to his house confront her in the presence of police.  The policeman says its a civil case and he cannot interfere in the matter. One day he sees the witch's son passing by grabs him and tattoo him as Fhakir.
The Witch scares him by paralyzing for applying the tattoo on his son.

As revenge, the Man tries to burn the witch and his son at their house. She transfers the Blackmagic to his son and escapes him from the house through a window. The runaway Fhakir obsessed with the power of black magic and tries to get more powerful. He needs to kill a few people before the blood moon and complete a black ritual to gain his obsessed power.

The number of missing persons is increasing has alerted the police. A policewoman finds that fhakir planning in an isolated house. The police finally did arrest the Fhakir and discovered the dead bodies of all missing persons in the basement.

The obsessed ghostwriter learns about the Fhakir and visits the jail to know more about him.
The Fhakir asked a piece of wood if the writer wants to know more about fhakir. The writer accepts conditions and begins to the autobiography. meanwhile, the court orders a death sentence to the Fhakir.

After the death sentence, the body of the writer wants the body of the Fhakir delivered to his mansion. The ambulance driver, Inspector who captured the Fhakir, delivers the dead body. During the full blood moon, Fhakir raises from dead and kills Inspector by pulling his heart out. The writer using his typewriter hits fhakir hard as his skull breaks and die. The driver gets shot in the knee by Inspector while falling on the floor. 

A group of four kids and a canine believe that there are ghosts according to the book and form a ghost club to see the real ghost. The strong desire to connect her mortal mother makes Sameera believe in ghosts. How the kids investigated and killed the ghost is the story of this series.
The typewriter is a typical Indian Horror series where the ghost struck between two worlds.
I think this series is of low quality to Netflix. Sometimes the spirit of Sultanpore, like the Indian relative of Scooby-Doo or even the stories of Enid Blyton, is a more childish adventure when the young ghost hunters turn on the school clock.

Then again, there are amazingly brutal and explicit moments that are not child-friendly at all. Ghosh himself is the only one who should be the target group for all of this. For some, this is too harmless, too violent for others, the series never finds a unified line, is nothing half and nothing whole. The Director tries to imitate the Stranger Things but this series is not near to it.

Also, the story is quite nonsense even for horror conditions. Later, when it becomes known that a typewriter is at the center of the disaster - the English title is not without reason Typewriter - not only some of the characters look disbelieving. Even in front of the TV at home, it feels like one.

It would have been easy to make a comedy out of it, or at least consistent trash. This is what the spirit of Sultanpore takes but then too seriously, is at times involuntarily funny - also because of the appearance, the budget is not quite up to date. That, in turn, does not necessarily add to the tension. After all, the whole thing is curious, to compare only a little with the mass-produced, the daily pounces on us. That's why the series is not good.

Rating: 3.5/10

Flappy bird battle royale

Flappy bird battle royale

Flappy Bird is the most explosively popular game ever made. Normally you will be the one who is playing this game. But think about playing with 100 people around the globe simultaneously. This concept of playing flappy bird is known as flappy royale. A new game from developers Orta Therox and Em Lazer-Walker (with contributions from Zach Gage).


The gameplay is simple, just like it was in the original game: tap on your bird to flap and dodge your way through some suspiciously Mario-esque pipes. Except the goal isn’t to survive as long as you can; it’s to survive longer than the other 99 players, all of whom you can see flapping alongside you in real-time. And because it’s a battle royale game, everyone starts out together on a bus, of course.


Until today, Flappy Royale was available on mobile as an open beta. But Therox announced earlier today that the game was out now in an official form on both iOS and Android. It’s also still available on the web.

Just Hakuna Matata: The Lion King


Recently Disney is recreating it's all-time iconic animation movies from the '90s. What I don't understand is why they can't find new stories that are as interesting as the old movies. In the remake also they are not improving much. Few of them are Alladin, Beauty and the Beast and now The Lion King these movies are pretty much same.

The Lion King is directed by Tony Stark’s driver, Jon Favreau, who was the director for Iron Man 1, 2 and the Jungle Book remake, which is the only live-action Disney remake I really liked so far.

So everyone knows the story of the 1994 Disney animation right? It’s basically about a pack of lions that rule an animal kingdom they call the Pride Lands. And somehow there are only three male lions in the whole place. One of them named Mufasa is the leader of the pack and the king of Pride Lands. His evil jealous brother, Scar, wants to take his place but the next in line is Mufasa’s son, Simba.

Scar attempts to murder them both with the help of a pack of hyenas who’re basically outsiders and at war against the lions. And there begins the journey of little Simba who must survive and grow up to be the king he’s born to be. In case any of you young ones have never seen the 1994 animation or Kimba, I shall not spoil it.

Is it better than the 1994 classic? Apart from the visuals, no.

Although I wouldn’t call this a “live-action” remake per se, the visuals are truly photo-realistic. The animals look very real and some of the animals even move like the real thing. They’re adorable. Baby Simba is extremely cute. But they are not expressive enough. There’s a lack of facial expression.


And when the characters talk and sing, their mouths don’t really move accordingly. And I don’t really feel like dialogue is coming from them. It’s just like watching the animals on the National Geographic channel.

Without the voice acting, we wouldn’t know what they’re thinking, feeling and even doing at times. Most of the vocal performances are good but still nowhere as great as the original.

Not sure why they could get the original voice of Mufasa, James Earl Jones, back but not the others such as Jeremy Irons who definitely sounded far more menacing and compelling as Scar than Chiwetel Ejiofor.

The new renditions of the music are good too but the new song Spirit by Beyonce, I’m not sure. Sounds like a weird version of Circle of Life to me. Her voice as the adult Nala is meh. Almost anyone else could’ve done the same. Donald Glover and JD McCrary are pretty good as an adult and young Simba.

But the ones I really enjoyed were Pumbaa and Timon, voiced by Seth Rogan and Billy Eichner respectively. They are genuinely hilarious and I laughed the loudest during that one scene where they referenced another Disney film’s character and song. They are like the best thing about this remake.

Only minor changes were made to the characters like the hyenas being less annoyingly stupid now. The rest of the characters and the story are pretty much identical to the original but without substance.

The development of the main characters and their relationships are much, much weaker. Maybe it’s due to the lack of facial expression from the photorealistic characters or perhaps the execution of the interactions are rushed. I can’t quite pinpoint the reason.


Even the iconic emotional scenes are nowhere near as powerful as the original. And I haven’t rewatched the original again since I was a kid so this remake had fresh bullets to hit me with the heartbreak but it failed. The only feeling I got was a bit of nostalgia perhaps.

In overall, this remake is not as good as the original and again, like I always say, what’s the point of a remake if it’s not going to improve much from the original apart from showing off the current visual effect capabilities?

Nonetheless, I did like that they address a few things well like why other animals agree to be ruled by lions even though they do eat them. I like that the lions are thinner for a reason. Keeping the balance and not overhunting are the responsibilities of the ruler. But Scar still looks skinny years after he’s overfed. And the hyenas towards the end… some things just didn’t make sense to me.

But anyway, just Hakuna Matata while watching it and you’ll probably still enjoy it.

Is your android infected with Agent Smith? Here is how to check.


Agent Smith is a malware that effects smartphone, tablets, and other android based devices. According to the report by the checkpoint, this malware has affected about 25 million devices while users remain unaware of the malware.

Check Point believes that the ‘Agent Smith’ malware originated in China via an internet firm that helps Chinese Android app developers to localize and publish their apps in foreign markets. It’s spread through a third-party app store called 9Apps that is popular in Asian markets.

The malware gained its name because it mimics the famous Matrix character, as it hacks apps and forces them to show more ads and then siphons the ad revenue by taking credit for ads already shown

Agent Smith has mainly infected devices in India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh. However, around 303,000 devices have been infected in the US and further 137,000 devices in the UK. Some of the apps that ended up being infected include
  • WhatsApp
  • lenovo.anyshare.gps
  • mxtech.videoplayer.ad
  • jio.jioplay.tv
  • jio.media.jiobeats
  • jiochat.jiochatapp
  • jio.join
  • good.gamecollection
  • opera.mini.native
  • startv.hotstar
  • meitu.beautyplusme
  • domobile.applock
  • touchtype.swiftkey
  • flipkart.android
  • cn.xender
  • eterno
  • truecaller
Agent smith's Attack flow

Check Point also says that the malware’s operator seems to have attempted to expand into the Google Play Store. It managed to turn up in 11 apps on the Play Store, all of which included code related to a simpler or previous version of the Agent Smith malware. The report notes that the malware remained inactive or dormant, with Google removing all of the apps deemed ‘infected’ or ‘at risk’.

 The core reason this app has spread is due to a vulnerability that was patched several years ago within Android but relied on developers updating their apps to add the protection. It’s clear that many have not done so according to these reports. It reiterates the importance of both app updates and Android security patches.

Does your phone still contain this malware?

Check Point says that it has informed Google about what it found on Agency Smith and that Google has cleaned the Play store to remove the apps that were infected with it. "So far, the primary victims are based in India through other Asian countries such as Pakistan and Bangladesh have also been impacted. Check Point has worked closely with Google and at the time of publishing, no malicious apps remain on the Play Store," the company notes.

But it is possible that your Android phone may have it. If you are getting too many ads on your phone, particularly sleazy or dubious ads, scan your phone with a good anti-virus app. At the same time, always follow good security practices. These are:

-- Don't download apps from third-party app stores like 9Apps. it's not worth it, even if you are getting an APK of a paid app for free. If it's free, do understand someone somewhere is benefitting from it. Always download apps from the official Google Play store.

-- If you suspect your phone is infected with Agent Smith, delete data of popular apps like WhatsApp and Flipkart by going into settings and reinstall these apps. Or rather do a factory reset.

-- Update your apps regularly via Google Play

-- Ideally, avoid sleazy apps or gaming apps from unknown sources.

-- While installing an app, carefully look at the permission it is asking for. Ideally, a gaming app should not ask for camera permission or photo app should not ask for network permission. Don't install an app if it seems dubious.

Russian Spy Whale Saves Woman's iphone


When you travel by boat to watch a whale and accidentally you slipped your phone into the ocean. What are your chances of getting it back? Let me guess 0%, Right!!

But that's her lucky day!!

Ina Mansika was sailing in waters in search for the beluga whale. She brought her iPhone along, hoping to catch a video of the whale.

She laid down on the dock to appear at it to get a chance to touch it. But she forgot to close the jacket pocket and her iPhone fell in the ocean.

she taught that her iPhone is gone forever, till the whale dove back down and came back a couple of moments later with her iPhone in its mouth.

This incident happened on May 5th, 2019.

Apparently, the beluga whale has lately defected from Russia. The Whale was initially spotted by a neighborhood fisherman, who removed a tight harness, most likely utilized for securing the camera gear.

The whale was most likely not informed of Apple's repair policy, nor did it comprehend the telephone was bricked from water harm. To Maniska, that is beside the point. The sort gesture was extremely a great deal appreciated.

Netflix used a real mall built in '80s as a location for the show


If you watched Stranger things 3 you will find a mall with 80's look and feel of American culture. The Starcourt mall you find in the stranger things season 3 is real and it is in the process of dismantling. Mall set is constructed inside Gwinnett palace mall which is constructed a year before the season2 of stranger things.

Netflix constructed around 40 stores in the mall for the show, which included period-appropriate versions of existing stores like Burger King and Hot Dog on a Stick (complete with their genuine ‘80s uniforms), as well as original creations like Scoops Ahoy, which apparently featured a boat-shaped restaurant booth that you can only partially see in the show.

Listen to Netflix behind the scene podcast of Stranger Things Season 3


Typically, film sets aren’t a full structure or room; it’s cheaper to build the bare minimum needed for a shot. That Netflix opted to build out entire stores suggests that the filmmakers wanted a bit of flexibility with how they shot the show, allowing them to shoot from any angle without worrying about an unfinished background.

Local Atlanta newspaper AJC reports that the set is currently in the process of being dismantled after Netflix reportedly decided against leaving it in place as a permanent tourist attraction. Unfortunately, it sounds like the mall could really use the customization. Most of the mall’s units are apparently now empty, with only a handful of shops remaining.

 With the retro mall now probably disappearing forever, we can at least take a video tour that one fan was able to film and posted to YouTube last year, complete with period storefronts and products in the windows.

England vs Afghanistan My dream 11 team

ABOUT THE MATCH

A big gap seems to be opening up between the current top-4 in ICC World Cup 2019 standings and the rest. England is a part of this top-4 and will be looking to try and maintain the momentum against Afghanistan.

There will be a number of teams that will be cheering for Afghanistan in this match. Teams like South Africa, Pakistan, and maybe even Bangladesh need the top-4 teams to slip up somewhere and create an opportunity for them.

Afghanistan has lost all of its four sides in the cricket world 2019. In fact, not only have they failed to win, but they have also failed to be competitive. This performance at the biggest stage in cricket is going to be hurting Afghanistan.

The match between the number one ranked side in the world, England, and the lowest ranked team in this world cup seems like a mismatch. A pitch that offered some help to the spinners and some possible injury concerns may make things a bit more interesting.

England vs Afghanistan is going to be played at Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester on the 18th of June 2019.

MATCH PREVIEW


ENGLAND


The first thing that everyone is going to want to know in this match is whether Jason Roy and Eoin Morgan are fit to take the side against Afghanistan. There have been conflicting reports in the media with some outlets reporting Roy will miss his next two games and other reporting that he is going to be available to play against Afghanistan.

Morgan’s back spasms don’t seem to be as serious and he is most likely going to be available against Afghanistan.

Looking ahead at the ICC World Cup 2019, we think England is definitely going to rest Roy and maybe even Morgan. This means that James Vince is going to play and Moeen Ali could come back into the side also.

England is one of the strongest contenders for the Cricket World Cup 2019 title because of the depth it has in its squad. They are lucky to be playing against a relatively weak opponent and can afford to rest its first choice players.


The form of Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, and the others are good enough for England to come into this match confident of a victory. Root has two centuries to his name already and is currently the fourth highest run-getter in the entire tournament.

England’s bowling attack is also performing very well and the express speed of Jofra Archer should be able to unsettle the Afghan batsmen. Archer and Mark Wood have been the two fastest bowlers in the entire tournament.

The pitch at Old Trafford helped the spinners in the previous match so the English batsmen will have to be careful about negotiating the Afghan spinners safely. At the same time, this is also a good opportunity for Adil Rashid, Moeen Ali, and even Joe Root to get some more wickets to their name.

There is no cricketing reason or logic why England should lose this game.

England Squad: 

Probable Playing 11: Jason Roy/James Vince, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Jos Buttler (wk), Eoin Morgan (c)/Moeen Ali, Ben Stokes, Chris Woakes, Liam Plunkett, Jofra Archer, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood

AFGHANISTAN


The ICC World Cup 2019 has been a rude shock for the Afghanistan side. They have improved dramatically in the last few years but they have a very long way to go before they can be considered a consistent, world-class team in all conditions.

This learning curve is very similar to what a lot of other senior teams have gone through before them.

The biggest letdown for Afghanistan has been its batting. They have just not been able to put enough runs on the board to give themselves a chance to put the opposition under pressure.

No batsmen from Afghanistan has been able to score a century in the cricket world cup 2019. The highest score for their side has been 59. Only two batsmen have scored a fifty and not even a single batsman has reached 100 runs for the tournament in total.


It is just not possible to compete with the best teams with performances like these.

Against England, the Afghanistan team is going to be faced with one of the best bowling attacks in the tournament. They are also probably going to be faced with a lot of short-pitched bowling. If their batsmen can show some courage and play out the difficult overs then there will be plenty of scoring opportunities down the line.

Najibullah Zadran and Rahmat Shah appear to be the two batsmen that can maybe play the long inning. Mohammad Nabi also needs to show his batting class and step up for the side.

Among the bowling, Afghanistan must hope that the pitch is going to help the spinners. Picking three spinners would be the right way to go because England’s weakness against spin bowling is perhaps the only way they can win this match.

Rashid Khan and Mujeeb Ur Rahman have had a very poor ICC World Cup 2019 so far. Even Mohammad Nabi has struggled apart from that spell against Sri Lanka.

A lot of things will suddenly need to start going right for Afghanistan to even have a chance of coming close to beating England.

Afghanistan Squad:

Probable Playing 11:Hazratullah Zazai, Noor Ali Zadran, Rahmat Shah, Hashmatullah Shahidi, Asghar Afghan/Najibullah Zadran, Gulbadin Naib (c), Mohammad Nabi, Ikram Ali Khil (wk), Rashid Khan, Aftab Alam, Hamid Hassan

TOSS PREDICTION


England will want to bat second if it wins the toss because of all the rain around. Afghanistan may prefer to bat first and get a total on the board.

PITCH AND CONDITIONS


England vs Afghanistan ICC World Cup 2019 is going to be played at EMriates Old Trafford, Manchester. The weather has been dull and gloomy in Manchester for the last few weeks and the same is expected for this match.

We should be able to get a result in but some showers are expected to interrupt the match and cause stoppages.

The pitches were well protected and there was some spin for the bowlers in the match between India and Pakistan. A high scoring pitch with help for the spinners is what we expect in this game also.

DREAM11 PREDICTION


Our Dream11 team is filled with the maximum possible England players as can be expected. There is a threat of rain around and some injury concerns which could change the playing eleven.

WIcketkeeper: Jonny Bairstow is going to be opening the batting and is in good form as well. Jos Buttler is another exceptional player but he may not get enough batting time against a weak bowling attack like Afghanistan.

Batsmen: We have picked Joe Root, Najibullah Zadran, and Haratullah Zazai as our three batsmen. Root already has two centuries to his name and is in the race to be the highest run-scorer in this tournament. Hazratullah Zazi swings his bat around and can score some quick runs but picking him is a big gamble. Najibullah Zadran is also quite limited with this batting but the lack of clarity over the availability of Jason Roy and Eoin Morgan has left us no other options at this time.


All-rounders: We think Moeen Ali could get a chance in this game and this is why we have picked him in our Dream11 team. Ali, alongside Ben Stokes and Chris Woakes, means that we have all three all-rounders in the England side. Mohammad Nabi is the fourth player we have picked form this category which gives the maximum possible all-rounders.

Bowlers: Jofra Archer, Adil Rashid, and Rashid Khan are perhaps the three bowlers best equipped to take wickets in Manchester. All three of these bowlers will benefit from the large square boundaries and the two spinners will also the like kind of surface that has been prepared.

Captain and Vice-Captain: We have picked Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow as the captain and vice-captain of our Dream11 team for England vs Afghanistan.

MATCH PREDICTION


There is nothing that suggests that Afghanistan is going to be able to win this match. That does not mean that it is impossible but just that we cannot recommend betting on it happening. Everything is in England’s favor and we believe that they have a 99% chance of winning this game. If you are the kinds that like to take risks on miracles then go ahead and bet on Afghanistan. We recommend sticking with the home team or keeping your money in your pocket.

WEST INDIES vs BANGLADESH My Dream 11 Team

WEST INDIES vs BANGLADESH My Dream 11 Team

ABOUT THE MATCH

We are almost midway in the ongoing Cricket World Cup, and things are just about beginning to take shape beautifully. Although the scheduling of tournament has attracted plenty of flak over the past week with most of the matches being washed out, things are bound to get interesting going forward.

A win for South Africa over Afghanistan has not only pushed the latter to the brink of elimination but has also still kept the Proteas in the hunt for a playoff spot. In an earlier game, England thrashed West Indies to strengthen their position in the top-four whereas Bangladesh had to stay content in splitting points with Sri Lanka.

Lying in the bottom half of the table, the Caribbean team and the Asian Tigers will have an opportunity to get back into the race for the playoffs. While the winner would possibly move into the top-half, things will get rather tricky for the one ending up on the wrong side of the result.

The match between the two sides will be played on 17th June at The Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton. Each game is of vital importance in this tournament, and with both teams struggling to get points under their belt, it's going to be an exciting contest.



MATCH PREVIEW


WEST INDIES

West Indies are currently placed at the sixth spot in the points table with one win, and two losses in the four games played so far. They still have six games to go and would ideally need to win at least four of those to have a reasonable probability of progressing to the next round.

While most of their challenging games are already over, winning four out of six games is never an easy prospect, especially when one of those games is against India.

Considering that, the importance of their upcoming match cannot be understated. Even though the results haven't favored them, Windies wouldn't be too discontent with the position they're in.

They did well against Australia before losing out in the final few overs and were brilliant against Pakistan in the opening fixture. Also, they were in an excellent position before rain washed out their match against the Proteas.



Up until now in the tournament, it's their bowling which has been responsible for their decent show so far. Barring a superb performance in the warm-up fixture, against the Kiwis, their batting has underperformed on the whole with batsmen perishing in the quest of getting too many runs too quickly.

Arguably their most reliable batsmen, Shai Hope, has either been too slow to get going or has returned to the pavilion prematurely which has also reflected in the scorecards they've posted. More often than not, they've struggled to last for the full quota of fifty overs which has hurt them badly.

Also, the selection of Carlos Brathwaite over Kemar Roach has attracted a lot of criticism for their skipper Jason Holder. Keeping Brathwaite has arguably rendered their side a little weak on bowling which was also apparent in their match against the Aussies where they reduced them to 79 for five only to chase a tall total later.

All in all, West Indies have raised the expectations from them in this Cricket World Cup with the kind of performances they've posted. They've been excellent at times, but the failure to last throughout hundred overs has hurt them. If they can keep their focus alive and be consistent with their approach, they will be a force to deal with in the upcoming fixture.

West Indies squad

Chris Gayle, Evin Lewis, Shai Hope(w), Nicholas Pooran, Shimron Hetmyer, Jason Holder(c), Andre Russell, Carlos Brathwaite, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas, Shannon Gabriel, Ashley Nurse, Darren Bravo, Fabian Allen, Kemar Roach

Bangladesh had a remarkable start to their campaign in this tournament, beating South Africa quite comfortably, but haven't been able to produce similar kind of performance ever since. They are currently placed at the seventh place in the points table with just one win in four matches and are desperate for another win to keep their run on the track.

Coming into the tournament, they made a few critical changes to their lineup with Shakib Al Hasan coming in at number three is the most prominent one. The decision to promote him has also been the one which has reaped the most benefit for the side. In the three matches he has played, he has scored 260 runs at an average of over 86 and a noteworthy strike-rate.

Apart from Shakib Al Hasan, however, we haven't seen anyone from Bangladesh go on and play big innings. There have been instances of individual brilliance from Mahumudullah, Mushfiqur Rahim, and Soumya Sarkar, but the over-reliance on Shakib Al Hasan has well and truly been apparent.

Their spinners played a key role in their only win over in the tournament so far, but it would be interesting to see how they fare against the power-packed Windies batting lineup consisting of Chris Gayle and Andre Russell who are known to handle spin well. Also, barring Mustafizur Rahman, they have a quick-bowling unit which looks rather unidimensional.



Bangladesh defeated West Indies in the final of tri-series which happened right before this ICC event started which should be a big confidence booster for them. Having said that, that West Indies unit was a second string side that did not feature the likes of Chris Gayle, Andre Russell, and Evin Lewis.

Just a day ago, Mushfiqur Rahim suffered an injury during practice and was rushed off the field. His participation in the next fixture is still under the clouds, and his absence could well be a decisive factor. All in all, Bangladesh have an excellent unit which has surely punched above its weight under the leadership of Mashrafe Mortaza.

Mortaza, however, has himself been out of form and would need a colossal effort from his side going forward in the tournament, especially if Mushfiqur Rahim is ruled out of next as well as the other upcoming fixtures.

MATCH PREDICTION

While both the sides have shown glimpses of individual brilliance in the tournament thus far, they both are dealing with their own set of problems.

Batting out fifty overs has been a significant problem for the Windies while Bangladesh appears to be a little too over-reliant on Shakib Al Hasan.

Tamim Iqbal and Mashrafe Mortaza have mainly looked out of color, and the injury to Mushfiqur Rahim has only added to their concerns.



We might see West Indies bringing in Kemar Roach in place of Carlos Brathwaite, and while that would certainly bolster their bowling attack, that would also make their batting look a little more fragile.

Comparing the two teams on paper, there's hardly anything to separate the two sides. Considering the batting friendly surfaces, short boundaries, and a balanced bowling attack, the Caribbean side appear to be better placed to emerge on top in the upcoming encounter.

ABOUT THE MATCH

The cricket world cup is the biggest event of the sport and the ICC World Cup 2019 edition has provided some excellent action on the field (when the rain has allowed it to). A number of highly awaited contests have been witnessed but now it is time for the biggest one of them all: India vs Pakistan World Cup 2019.

There is a history of war, conflict, and political differences between the two countries that elevate this contest to something beyond just another cricket match. Supporters from each side are happy to lose the world cup if they can just win this one match.

Traditionally, a lot of cricket has been played between the two sides but all bilateral cricket between India and Pakistan has been at a standstill since 2008 and they have only played each other in multi-nation events.

Pakistan has never won a match against India in the World Cup, a record that it would desperately want to correct. The last time these two teams met in England was the Champions Trophy final 2017 which Pakistan won.

Can they finally get over the line against India?

Oh, and there is a very good chance of rain causing interruptions to the match which is going to add to the intrigue around the contest as well.


Venue: India vs Pakistan ICC World Cup 2019 is going to be played at Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester on the 16th of June 2019.

MATCH PREVIEW

INDIA



India is unbeaten in the ICC World Cup 2019 as of now and has looked one of the best teams in the entire tournament. Confident wins against South Africa and Australia were followed by a rained-out encounter against New Zealand.

As good a start as they have had to their campaign, India goes into this match with a few major concerns. Shikhar Dhawan fractured his finger during the match against Australia and is going to be unavailable for this match.

He is a part of India’s famed top-3 and also scored a century in the previous game. His absence will mean that India has to get another player into the side and make some changes to its batting order also.

Lokesh Rahul traveled to England as the reserve opening batsman but cemented his place at number 4 in the warm-ups. He is now going to have to make another adjustment and come back to open the batting. It helps the Lokesh Rahul is in good form but this is going to be a massive test for him.

India now has to decide what to do about their number 4 slot. We think that they are going to include Vijay Shankar into the side since he did pretty well in New Zealand at that position. Shankar is also a brilliant fielder giving him the edge.


The other option that India has is to move up Dhoni and Jadhav one place and add Dinesh Karthik to the lower order.

India has so far played Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal, and Kuldeep Yadav backed up by Hardik Pandya and Kedar Jadhav. We think they might consider playing Mohammad Shami in place of Kuldeep Yadav if the conditions remain overcast.

All in all, India has the bench strength to be able to adapt to the loss of Dhawan but doing so in a pressure match against Pakistan could really test their resolve.

India Squad: Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli(c), Lokesh Rahul, MS Dhoni(w), Hardik Pandya, Kedar Jadhav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Vijay Shankar, Dinesh Karthik, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami

Probable Playing 11: Lokesh Rahul, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (c), Vijay Shankar/Rishab Pant, MS Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Kedar Jadhav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami/Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah

PAKISTAN



One win from four matches has left Pakistan in a tough spot. They lost their match against the West Indies and their match against Sri Lanka was rained out as well. They must win at least four out of their remaining five matches in the ICC World Cup 2019 if they want to be sure of qualifying for the Cricket World Cup 2019 semi-finals.

To say that Pakistan is an unpredictable side is a cliché but it is well deserved. They collapsed in a heap against the West Indies and then scored close to 350 against England after which they once again failed to chase 307 against Australia. Fakhar Zaman, Imam ul Haq, and Babar Azam are a dangerous top-3.

Fakhar Zaman may not be very consistent but he will have good memories of taking apart India’s attack in the Champions Trophy final. Imam and Babar are much more consistent and must score runs if Pakistan has to have a chance.

Babar Azam is rated as one of the best ODI players in the world and this is the time to prove it.

Mohammad Hafeez is in excellent rhythm and is playing his best cricket at number 4. He has the power game to be able to accelerate when needed and is also very good against the spinners.

After these four the batting starts to become shaky. Sarfaraz Ahmed at 5 is a bit too high, Shoaib Malik is struggling for form and may be replaced by Haris Sohail while Asif Ali seems too one dimensional to be successful at this level of the game.


Wahab Riaz and Hasan Ali can slog for a bit but they cannot be trusted to hang around against a quality bowling attack.

Pakistan also has to decide on its team combination for this match. They dropped Shadab Khan in the previous match and included Shaheen Afridi but that meant they had no quality spinner in the side. Mohammad Amir is back in wicket-taking form and he will be the biggest threat in this match.

His opening spell against the Indian top-order is going to determine which way the match goes.

If Wahab Riaz, Hasan Ali, and the rest can back him up then Pakistan definitely has the bowling to win.

Pakistan Squad: Shoaib Malik, Mohammad Hafeez, Sarfaraz Ahmed (c & wk), Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Amir, Babar Azam, Imam-ul-Haq, Asif Ali, Fakhar Zaman, Hasan Ali, Shaheen Afridi,Haris Sohail, Imad Wasim, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Hasnain

Probable Playing 11:Imam-ul-Haq, Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez, Sarfaraz Ahmed (c/wk), Shoaib Malik, Asif Ali, Wahab Riaz, Hasan Ali, Shaheen Afridi, Mohammad Amir


TOSS PREDICTION


The team winning the toss is going to want to bat second. There is a lot of rain that is going to be predicted and that will make conditions favorable for the fast bowlers. If the match is completed then DLS tends to favor the side batting second as well. Read our guide on toss predictions to learn how we analyze and come up with our tips.

 PITCH AND CONDITIONS


India vs Pakistan ICC World Cup 2019 is going to be played at the Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester. Everyone is going to have one eye in the sky because rain has already played havoc with the tournament.

The weather forecast is not good. There is a lot of rain expected to fall on match day. The current forecast suggests a 50% chance of rain throughout the day. We have to hope for a miracle otherwise the most awaited match of the tournament may be a washout.

 DREAM11 PREDICTION


The Dream 11 team for India vs Pakistan is being made hoping we get a result in. The weather has been terrible in Manchester and there is a very real possibility of a washout. Even if we do get a match, it is likely to be shortened in nature.

Wicketkeeper: There are two options here, MS Dhoni and Sarfaraz Ahmed. Both are good options because they play a crucial role in the middle order. We think that picking MS Dhoni is a better option in this match since he may move up a batting position.

Batsmen: Both the teams are reliant on their top-order for runs. We have picked Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Babar Azam, and Vijay Shankar in our side. Imam ul Haq was another compelling option but he proved to be a bit too expensive to fit in the team. Vijay Shankar's place, is, of course, assuming that he is picked in the final eleven. We can substitute Lokesh Rahul or even Dinesh Karthik in the side if Shankar is not in the team.



All-rounders: Mohammad Hafeez and Hardik Pandya are two very important options in this category. We think it is a must to have both these players in the side because of their high point-scoring potential. Hafeez is Pakistan's most valuable batsman in the middle and bowls regularly while Hardik Pandya is India's power hitter and fourth bowler.

Bowlers: Pakistan's fast bowling riches are plenty and we have decided to include Mohammad Amir and Wahab Riaz into our side. Mohammad Amir is in good form and also has a good record against India. If Pakistan bowls first, then he could be unplayable under overcast conditions.

Wahab Riaz has been bowling with genuine pace and is always a threat. The third bowler that we have picked is Bhuvaneshwar Kumar. He is at his best when the ball is swinging and that is what we think will happen in Manchester. Batsmen also tend to attack him and prefer to be more cautious against Jasprit Bumrah.

Captain and Vice-Captain: We have picked Virat Kohli as captain and Mohammad Amit as the vice-captain for this match.
