What if I told you, Australia is below Ireland in the ICC T20 ranking.

What if I told you, Australia is below Ireland in the ICC T20 ranking

When I turned on the TV, yesterday, to watch the T20 match between Pakistan and Australia, I saw that the match was about to end. Australia required another 20 runs from 11 balls. After two consecutive fours, it was 12 runs out of 9 balls. I was quite certain that Australia pulled this game out. That moment, I didn’t realize that I was about to see the most thrilling T20 game ever. 

After dot balls then came a run out, it was an amazing throw from the third man and it was  a direct hit.

Then came a moment when Australia needed 7 runs from 2 balls. Abdur Razzaq was bowling the final over. And then came, Cummins’s massive six in the second last ball. The scores are level. 1 run to win from 1 one.

Last ball, Abdul Razzaq to Cummins, comments Cricinfo, OUT, it’s a Superover, it wasn’t the best final ball form Razzaq but it was good enough, a full toss on the pads, Cummins was looking to work that to the leg side, a leading edge that ballons towards mid-off, Imran Nazir and Umar Akmal both went for it, Nazir called for it, Umar backed away, Nazir takes it, Cummins wrings his hands in disappointment.

Super Over

It also didn’t work in favor of Australia. They managed to get 11 runs. Pakistan in response got 12 runs with two fours.

I got to know about this amazing site 7-8 months ago and have been using it since then. If you don’t know what it is  then here is a review.

When we signed up for Ohlife.com for the first time. It’s home page looked something like this.

Notice the words in red with yellow border, “It’s Free“.

Since Ohlife sends me email regularly at a given time. A month ago, I noticed  another new line with their daily mail. It read something like get Ohlife premium.

   I got curious and logged into the site and saw something like this. $50/year seemed a bit too much especially for a teenager like me. I thought to myself that after 2-3 years there are chances that I may take up a premium service, for the site is great.

Even birds have funerals.

A study at the University of California, Davis, US, by Teresa Iglesias and some of his colleagues revealed that birds hold funerals for their dead. When western scrub jays find a dead body they call out one another and stop foraging for food (which last for over a day). Then they fly down to the dead body and gather around it.

By making sound like “zeeps”, “scolds” and “zeep-scolds” they try to warn distance birds which also encourages them to attend the dead.

Why Warn?

Researchers say, “spreading the message that a dead bird is in the area helps safeguard other birds, alerting them to danger, and lowering their risk from whatever killed the original bird in the first place.”
