Obed McCoy making a dent in the prediction made by many thinking India will be winning the match. Two overs to go and West Indies is bowling a really tidy over and picking up wickets and there is no way they will be able to score above 150 runs from the situation they are in.

Lost another Wicket. 5 wickets for Obed McCoy, simply the player of the match unless Indian bowlers produces something incredible without their strike bowlers.

For starters ETH has half the market cap of Bitcoin so iets the leader of Utility, where Bitcoin is the leader in store of value.
Ethereum currently isn't deflationary, and will be after the merge.
After the merge the tokens will be severely limited and the event will be like a triple halving.
In the future staking will be the most easiest way to increase your holdings.

I have a small portion of my stack in ETH and it's outperforming BTC, which is why I've bought some for the "shorter period"

I agree that there are many things wrong with Ethereum but saying it's worthless it's very naive...
The reason why some say ETH is worthless is because some try to preach that a centralized infinite coin is better and then go on to compare it with BTC and then the audacity to call for flippening for a while Roll Eyes.  

lets not tie them for obvious reasons and pretend one is superior after triple halving Tongue

Gulf countries are in the early days of making their presence into cricket. For that reason, now they look for good players from the South Asia. This way the national team will slowly progress and there is no opposition being from the citizens. So, nothing to make it a big issue and that's the reason ICC seems to be silent on this matter.
As far as i understand, UAE is having their Cricket team from the 1990 as per their website, so basically it is more than 27 years and you cannot call them fairly new to the game of Cricket. It is a fact that they are including mercenary players in their team because the citizens are not interested to play the sport and ICC has given them the consideration in return for allowing them to have their headquarters in the UAE and basically tax free.

Logan Paul have received several warnings from popular people for the fight against Mike Tyson. In recent days he has got warning from Joe Rogan and Michael Bisping. This has been the big match in terms of box office. Once the exact date is announced we can see more people going for the odds and booking tickets.
It is going to be another box office success and everyone who is commenting on how Logan Paul took on an old Mike Tyson and thought about dancing with him in the ring was a mistake, even though he is old, he can really punch and it is evident with the way he spars and Logan Paul is not a world class boxer who could defend against someone like Mike Tyson even at this age.

Logan Paul seems to give regular updates on his workout for the upcoming fight day. We don't know what the jury team have planned on the winning of the entertainment fight. Cheesy
The entertainment factor i am expecting is that Logan Paul sleeping in the first round, i think the rules are clear, you can win if you are able to knockout the opponent and if it goes the distance it will be a draw.

New Zealand messed up big-time after that huge first innings partnership. The Indian spinners dismantled them and India is already leading by 63 runs though they lost Gill early which is a setback for them.

Jamieson and Southee are the key bowlers to watch out for. If India manage a lead of 200+ runs, this game will either end as a draw or India winning. Let's see if NZ can turn this one around.
The spinners were able to dominate the third day and if India scores above 200 runs then there is no way New Zealand will be able to face Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Axar Patel in the final two days. Prepared spin wickets resting all the main players and it looks like a good plan as they already wanted to give rest to their main players and still win the match Cheesy.

Interesting moment i think, is that many professional boxers bet on Tyson rather on Logan Paul. For example:

 That guy (and many other sportsmen) understand that Logan not a real boxer, more like joker.
The main reason majority of the boxing community is against Logan Paul and Jack Paul is because they never fought as a professionals and from the first fight itself they were making millions of dollars which is unheard of in boxing community. They usually start out less than a thousand dollars in show local fight club and move their ranks which will take years while Logan and Jake starts to earn from their first fight Cheesy.

Bangladesh vs Pakistan first session clearly belongs to Pakistan but in last two sessions it's all about Bangladesh now they have done good but still it's a long way to go for them if they want to be good.
Mushfiqur Rahim and Liton Das is building a huge partnership which will be frustrating to Pakistan and they will try to break the partnership in the morning and if they could battle the first one hour, then they will score above 360 runs which i think is a decent total.

Will Young and Tom Latham had a great start to the series and if they can continue like this, then New Zealand will end up having a first innings lead. They need to score the maximum they can in this innings because the final two days will be difficult to bat and India have three spinners in the squad to take advantage on the final day.

The rhetorical question remains - what benefit will shibu or doge bring to humanity?
If you invested earlier then your bank balance will be 1000% more than you had especially those who jumped in during the initial hype of Shiba Inu, they made a lot of money with it and that is the biggest bonus they will have with any investment and so is the case with Dogecoin, there are many who made millions of dollars and for majority it was an unexpected bonus.

He started wrestling when he was 5 years old, and he is a three-time Swedish National champion in wrestling. So, I agree with you when you say "he has the best grappling". I mean, it's not entirely surprising, right? Smiley
Swedish National Championship does not necessarily be the toughest competition but Khamzat Chimaev is from Chechnya and he won bronze medal at the Russian National Championships at junior level which is a really high level competition, so his level his much higher and the way in which he recently dominated Jack Hermansson in a wrestling match is more than enough to create fear on anyone fighting at Welterweight and Middle Weight.

Usmas is way more experienced than Chimaev. I think he is better at striking. If we cross out wrestling, Usman has more advantages.
When you compare experience there is no doubt that Kamaru Usman is superior, but he does not have one punch knockout power but Khamzat Chimaev showed his one punch knockout power and he are yet to see his striking potential nor his grappling level because he finishes the fights faster.

@Sithara007 hasnít the watch issue too disappeared from the media, or should we give him the benefit of the doubt that he did declare the value and the media hyped it up.

Furthermore as far as the rape allegations are concerned BCCI is silent, the police donít have proof so no one can say heís guilty till itís proved he actually is.
The media will hype the case and once it is resolved they will not apologize for that nor they will update the narrative, it is a common them globally. May be they have declared the value and paid the tax, it is not a criminal issues if they are willing to pay tax and not smuggle things.

Regarding the rape allegation, i know one lady accused several high profile people from politicians to cricket players about raping her, it is possible that it could be a blackmailing strategy as well to settle money outside court.

It's important for the bettors Grin but yet either lose or win won't hurt Tyson career, but if Paul lost people will start underestimating him and no hype anymore. Betting in exhibition fight is full of surprise and could lead you earn good sum, because it's a high chance the fight ended as draw or upset.
It is not about Mike Tyson and his career, but his legacy. Logan Paul has lost his fights and in fact in his first fight he lost and do you really think his fan following decreased and that too fighting who was also debuting and whenever he faced any other celebrity even with losses he could create hype and fill the stadium, so this theory is not right.

Yep, sad to say this to be honest but I predict Paul will win.
If you say Jake Paul would stand a chance against an aging Mike Tyson, i would accept but no way Logan Paul would stand a chance.

Finally West Indies made 160 runs before getting all out. They have lost the game by 187 runs, but they have done a good comeback in the second innings. Because they had lost their first six wickets in just 18 runs. Sri Lankan team isn't weak actually, they have some experienced players. And both teams have same quality players. West Indies team need a better guideline and coach. Otherwise they won't be able to do well.
The odds for a draw were much higher even though they lost their wickets during the match and i was not confident to place a bet on a Sri Lankan victory as the weather was also not that great as there were signs of rains and the West Indies tail end players tried their best to delay the match by playing long innings and somehow Sri Lanka were able to break their partnership.

Day one ended in favour of India. I think they will collect more than 400 runs in their first innings. And it will be enough to maintain the dominance in the game. I thought India will struggle when they lost their 4th wicket. But the new player Shreyas Iyer has made a good partnership with Jadeja.
The morning session will determine whether India will post well beyond 400 runs or will stumble around.

IPL is adding two more teams which means we will have more matches in already heavy schedule ipl. I don't think players are going to have some rest in T20 leagues dominated year. India has done right thing by giving rest to king kohli in T20 series and first test against NZ. Lyer n Gill on day one have performed well.
They want to add more time which means the tournaments will be extended and i do not expect the quality of the matches to improve by increasing the number of teams, but the opposite will happen in situation like this. What ever it is we will see the big drama show and since the team members keeps changing curious to see how will captain the side for the two new teams.

If this thing happen in the future, I ma pretty sure that the Altcoins or Bitcoin will surely be dead instantly, that's the reality in which we need to accept it. due to nowadays, internet wherever we go it is always part of the business in the entire world now. Especially, in terms of communication in different countries and others as well.
Hope you are aware that you will be able to move Bitcoin offline and you only need internet to validate the transaction in the block, first and foremost there wont be a situation where there wont be internet for an extended period of time and if you want to make a transaction during internet outage you can do that and once the internet is online it will be validated.

I am sure that we will not even hear news about it after two days. Whatever they do we wont hear it again, it just one of those things that come nd go in life of celebraties.What happens there we are not aware of whether the girl is saying truth or not but if it ia true then it is very sad thing. But we cant say anything about this , after two days no one will be talking about this
Does it really matter, yeah they purchased something which was costly and if the authorities does not want to check their statements on how they are able to purchase expensive items, which they can literally because they are getting a good pay scale. There is no point in having this the main headlines if they paid the tax they are asked to. The news always changes and that is the nature of news Tongue.
16  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: [Boxing]: Terence Crawford vs Shawn Porter - Nov. 20 on: November 21, 2021, 05:19:51 PM
That's the instinct of the father to protect his son from further damage. After that second knockdown, Porter doesn't have the legs anymore to continue competitively so that's a good decision by the father to stop the fight.

Damn, lost my bet but that's okay as the fight was very exciting and personally I have Porter leading the scores going into the 10th round.
Going into the fight i placed a bet on Terence Crawford to win the fight but Shawn Porter surprised me with his resilience as he was trying to win the fight even in the eight round but the ninth round changed the fight completely, before the fight i never gave any chance for Shawn Porter even though i thought he would give a fight in the first two rounds but he was strong even after that. 
17  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: T20 and T20I cricket prediction and discussion on: November 21, 2021, 04:39:28 PM
New Zealand lost three wickets but as long as Martin Guptill is in the crease they always have a chance to win the match but things are getting interesting because of the high score India was able to score.
Martin Guptill is back in the pavilion, he cannot single handedly win the match for New Zealand as none of the other batsman contributed and they already lost 6 wickets and now the process is how long New Zealand can bat and delay the win for India.

Striking contrast on how they are playing now when they are touring in India and it looks like an entirely different team that faced India in the world cup Roll Eyes.
18  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: [BOXING] Logan Paul vs Mike Tyson on: November 20, 2021, 11:54:02 PM
No, this is just an exhibition match so Mike shouldn't take this as professional fight. Besides, he has been out for many years in professional boxing, he is already 55, so this is just for a show to his fans.

Well on the Roy Jones fight, we saw that it is predetermined, so in this fight, this might be the case again. It could end up in draw for all we know.
Why do you think that Roy Jones and Mike Tyson danced to a predetermined result. The rules were such that the winner will be determined only if anyone could knockout the opponent and once they were not able to land that punch, it went to a draw.

Roy Jones was the best during his time and when it comes Logan Paul he is nothing in terms of skill level and Mike Tyson could knock him out.
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: High ETH withdraw Fees, how to Solve on: November 20, 2021, 11:31:58 PM
Ethereum transaction fees have been high since the past few months. and this issue has been talked about by many crypto users. and no one can provide a solution other than using other altcoins to make transactions because they have low transaction fees. and if you use the binance market then you should use BNB as a transaction tool because bnb transaction fees are still relatively low than ethereum and you can store them using a Binance smart chain wallet.
The OP is complaining that the exchanges are charging higher fees than normal and from what i understand that is what he is talking about. There are exchanges that charge a much higher transaction fees even though the general fees are much lower and if you question them, the excuse they would say is that they do not want to encourage users to use their exchange to break the transaction trail.
20  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: What if governments make Bitcoin centralized? on: November 20, 2021, 11:20:12 PM
Bitcoin cannot be centralized by any government in the world because they can only centralize someone they have power over ad the last time I checked the government has understood that Bitcoin is inevitable and cant be control by them. However, they can only manipulate or regulate the centralized exchange site.
A government can control Bitcoin and it is easier if they regulate the market and any exchange running in that country will provide ever transaction details to the government, so it is not a strange thing. They might not control the entire market but they can control what is happening with the transactions in the exchanges that is registered with them.
