Kolkata spent their entire salary in the IPL auction to secure some incredibly big name players as Australian big-hitter Chris Lynn has joined KKR for 2018, along with Mitchell Johnson, Andre Russell and Sunil Narine.

After letting go of erstwhile skipper Gautam Gambhir, the Kolkata Knight Riders have a completely new look to their side. Narine's 19-ball 50 (he raised the half-century off 17 balls) laid the impetus that KKR so almost lost in the middle overs into their chase of 177. But it was during the RCB innings that a big gamble of bringing on a part-time spinner against two of the most explosive T20 batsmen in the world, and getting their wickets off consecutive deliveries made a difference of at least 15 runs in the run chase. On the other hand, de Villiers hit Yadav for two back-to-back sixes. This is the third game of the Indian Premier League season 11 tournament and will be played at the Eden Gardens stadium located in Kolkata itself. Captain Virat Kohli and fast bowler Umesh Yadav headline the local talent. Chris Lynn, 2. Sunil Narine, 3. Filling the remaining overseas player slots are South African superstars Quinton de Kock and AB de Villiers along with English all-rounder Chris Woakes and Moeen Ali.

Several false flags appeared over the years; a number of women who could have been Qifeng but were cleared after DNA test results. After some time, they found that their daughter was missing and therefore they started looking for her, calling out her name etc.

Lynn has been in fantastic form in the KKR practice matches, and he should feast on a weak RCB pace attack. Sarfraz Khan failed to get going and it was only due to Mandeep Singh that they were able to post a competitive total of 176 runs after their 20 overs.

While de Villiers went for 44 (23), Kohli was dismissed at 31 from 33 balls.

Ad group WPP to investigate alleged misconduct by CEO
Sir Martin, who has been at the helm of WPP for more than three decades, has said he rejects the allegations "unreservedly". He was knighted in 2000. "Just to be accused of it is going to taint him and the share price in the near-term".

We are betting on the Royal Challengers Bangalore to win this game. In the spin department young Washington Sundar is valuable addition along with Yuzvendra Chahal forming a dynamic spin combination. As many as 16 runs were leaked in the final over by Vinay Kumar who had a forgettable comeback for KKR. This match was also Kohli and Uthappa's 150th match in the IPL.

With the fall of the two massive wickets, Rana put KKR right into the driver's seat.

West Philly Church Hopes Epic Easter Egg Hunt Inspires New Tradition
He was too old for the egg hunt, but not too old to eat the candy. "They always love to serve people in need". "It's a win-win". Colorful eggs covered the grass at Coolidge Park, and thousands of kids anxiously lined up for the annual Easter egg hunt.

Narine was brought on in the first over after Powerplay and bowled four dot balls to Kohli, conceding just two runs. Kohli is clear at [3.4] but AB De Villiers, after issues with injury, looked somewhere close to his best towards the end of the South African global season and he's the pick at a generous [4.3].
