Interesting stuff

Some interesting news that I found out over the weekend

1) Saurav Ganguly is going to host a quiz show for a Bangla channel with the programme being named "Dadagiri' !!!.

2) Roger Federer became a proud father of twin girls. Great stuff ! Was wondering whether we would see the "Federer twins" dominating women's tennis in twenty years time. Just for the record, the two have been named Charlene Riva and Myla Rose. Just as I was checking Google for their names, it seems many others have already felt the same. Here's just a sample of the interest surrounding their birth : "..London bookmakers Friday are offering 100/1 odds of one of the pair someday winning Wimbledon. The twins, born Thursday, have barely opened their eyes but are tabbed as 25/1 to claim a Grand Slam event. "The twins certainly come from good tennis stock," said a spokesman for Ladbrokes. "If they are half as good as their dad they will still be a potent force on the court." - With their tennis pedigree as daughters of the best in the world to play the game, the newborns have been rated as 50/1 to win a Grand Slam doubles title as part of the same team and 200/1 to earn the Wimbledon crown before 2035, when they will turn 26. " - Brilliant, isn't it ??

3) Alan Donald has called for ICC to legalise ball tampering. Check out this link for the story -
