Hi @afidelf - RE your Nam vs. SL match preview, Lennie Louw is not the Namibian coach, he is an ex-Namibian player from the 2003 WC. Pierre De Bruyn is the Namibian coach.
Replying to @Mystical_Titan
Of course. Sorry. This has now been fixed.

Yaaay thanks dude! Need to do my own food trip to SL with you

Oh man. That'd be spectacular. Also, I had a feeling once the segments started that the last section would be seafood biryani, and there it was, to no little joy.

Amazing first year of stories from @FiftyTwoDotIn as well. Superb work @supriyan + @vikramshah1991
 
If you love biryani (i.e. you have tastebuds connected to a functional brain), this is a must-read.

(Also, having had the joy of eating my way through Karachi for a week with the author, there was really no one else who could have better written this.)

8 areas, 8 biryanis, 8 chefs.

On why Karachi is home to the greatest biryani in the world.

Sumita can't speak in English, but she can rap to @NICKIMINAJ. A trained dancer, great actor, exceptional lip-syncer. Yet, she gets no promotional activities.

I spent a day with Sumita and learned what it takes to be a viral star from a small town.

In reply to @nkashokbharan
Where did the raw material for that industry come from? Africa and Asia... that's where.
Plus, very, often the labour, and also, the market into which to sell the value added goods (after the local industry was systematically broken down).

❌Covid-19 Vaccines❌

WALK-INS

20-29 year olds in the Colombo District can get:

💉AZ --- 2nd dose
💉SINOPHARM --- 1st and 2nd doses

At Diyatha Uyana.

Please consider getting vaccinated if you haven't. The location is fairly empty and the process takes less than 10 mins.

This is not the whole story, @HarshadeSilvaMP. There were other reasons (not just elections) for delays, as highlighted by a national audit which @TimesOnlineLK made into a story. Many any of those lags were under the Sirisena-Wickremesinghe administration (1).

I guess this is a semantic point. But for a huge percentage of people, families/elders/relatives are a drain on financial resources from early on in adulthood. If someone's folks are in a position to chip in every now and then, I'd say they are privileged.
Replying to @afidelf @yudhanjaya
And not being able to help your kids w/money past a certain point (or the kids not wanting to be a drain on parents because they know the parents' situation), doesn't make them less than decent parents. (I know that's not what you're arguing, but it may be worth pointing out.)

I am interested if you agree a run be taken when the ball hits one of the batters from a fielding throw? Baseball has a number of unwritten rules some of which are archaic but the players like to enforce them.
Replying to @shoelessjk
I don’t think runs should be allowed if it hits the batter, the batter’s equipment, or the stumps. I also think that’s something for the laws to lay out, not something for players to police.
 
The “spirit of cricket” is a fuzzy concept to begin with, but important to remember that when the “spirit" was conceived at a concept, most of the modern cricketing world was not at that table.

Give your heart and soul on the field and play within the rules of the game and shake your hands once the game is over. The above is the only ‘spirit of the game’ I understand.

SJB members Harsha De Silva and Rehan Jayawickreme both say deals were made to protect the killers of Lasantha Wickrematunge during Yahapalanaya. It would be good if these deals can be exposed to the public, this was one of the utter failures of the Yahapalanaya govt.

Best part about it is that Rhinehart would probably pay less tax and face less regulation in SL -particularly on the environmental front- than in Aus. (Though, who am I kidding, without knowing anything about the Aus system, she probably pays next to nothing there as well.)

The storm has deteriorated our beach in Kinross, i headed down to assess the damage as it’s part of my job and this is a long term project for us (beach variability). I brought just my father as I recognise that it is lockdown despite all the cars on the road. Guess what?

Fantastic from @Estelle_Vasude1 about SLC's failure to schedule matches for their team.

That they have let Chamari Atapattu - one of the best batters in the game - lose 18+ months of her career is especially shameful. pic.twitter.com/QXXAeM6EVi
