Former tennis player Boris Becker, who was sentenced to prison in April 2022, is set to walk free after being approved for an accelerated release program.

He has been facing 15 months behind bars.

However, under the Government’s Early Removal Scheme, he could be sent to Germany in November after seven-and-a-half months.

Germany has a softer penal system than Britain.

The Home Office has confirmed that Becker is eligible to be deported from the UK as a foreign national who has served a prison sentence of more than 12 months behind bars.

The three-times Wimbledon champion was initially detained at Wandsworth Prison in South London but was moved to HMP Huntercombe, Oxfordshire, in late May.

Huntercombe is a prison predominently used to house foreign offenders.

As per a spokesperson, “Any foreign national convicted of a crime and given a prison sentence is considered for deportation at the earliest opportunity.”

The six-time Grand Slam winner has been found guilty of breaching bankruptcy rules by concealing nearly £2.5million in cash, shares and property.

This means Becker might be reunited with his family in time for Christmas.

Boris Becker is a former world No. 1 who has won six Grand Slam singles titles as well as a 1999 Olympic gold medal in doubles.

Teaming with Michael Stich, Becker defeated South Africans Wayne Ferreira and Piet Norval at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics in the final.

Harsha Bhogle

Harsha Bhogle gave a major update on Dharamshala’s weather for the five days of the commencement of the 5th Test between India and England. The popular commentator and analyst took to his X account and claimed that he is set to go to the venue in the coming days and claimed to have checked the forecast for the Test between India and England.

“I am due to go to Dharamshala in a week,” wrote Bhogle on X. The fifth Test of the series will be taking place from the 7th of March to the 11th of March. Harsha claimed that just reading the forecast made him shiver. “I checked the forecast today and just reading that makes me shiver,” wrote Harsha on his social media handle. The tweet of Harsha has gone viral on X.

The analysts further added that the temperature in Dharamshala is likely to be 10 degrees centigrade at maximum. While Bhogle hoped it would change, he added that the temperature at the morning in the venue would be two degrees centigrade. The maximum temperature forecast for March 07 (at this stage, hopefully, it will change) is 10°. The temperature forecast at 7 am is 2°! Snow??” added Bhogle on X.

Will England have any advantage?

As soon as Bhogle gave the update on X, the fans started claiming that England could have an advantage given the weather. There has been an opinion that the lack of sunshine could help their pace attack more than that of India. England possess a serious weapon in James Anderson who is known to get unreal swing in overcast conditions.

In addition to the experienced pacer, England has three more talented pacers. While Mark Wood can be effective with his express pace, the likes of Ollie Robinson and Gus Atkinson could prove handy as well. The fans also felt that India had an attack to counter that of England. Either way, the 5th Test is set to be a no-dud, as it could be valuable for the teams keeping in mind the points for the WTC.

Unmukt Chand

Unmukt Chand has made a huge claim on the Big Bash League. The former Under19 World Cup-winning captain of India claimed that the BBL is similar to the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. The fans are divided over the statement of the USA player. While some believe that his context is right, others feel that he has exaggerated his opinion on the BBL. Many consider it to be a top league in cricket.

Unmukt did accept the fact that BBL is big in its own way. But he felt that the IPL is on a different level altogether. Chand felt that the best players in the world take part in the IPL. The former DC player claimed that the management in the league is different from that of the other leagues. Chand claimed the IPL to be ten times bigger than the other leagues.

The former U19-winning WC skipper played a lot in the BBL. He represented Melbourne Renegades in the league. Having played in the league in the past, he added that BBL in Australia is good in its own way. Unmukt was of the opinion that Australia is a great place to play cricket. He felt that Australia has people who love the sport a lot.

Unmukt Chand’s comparison of BBL with the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy

Chand felt that Australia had good ground, wicket, and stadiums. “I mean playing the Big Bash in Australia is anyways great. It is a great place to play cricket where you know you have your sport, you have your sports-loving people, they come and watch and good grounds, good stadiums, good wicket,” added Chand in his statement on Australia and BBL.

Chand claimed that BBL is similar to India’s Syed Mushtaq Ali trophy. He claimed BBL to be more of its top T20 tournament than a big T20 league like the IPL. “But Big Bash was more like it’s Cricket Australia’s premier tournament like you know we have a Syed Mushtaq Ali in India. So, it’s that but obviously done at a bigger stage,” said Unmukt Chand.

Bade Miyan Chote Miyan

The title track for the upcoming action-thriller Bade Miyan Chote Miyan received a lot of praise. Following that, a new song from the film was released featuring Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff.

Both actors shared a short clip announcing the release, and the song is now available on official channels. “Energy – MAST, Beats – MALANG, Groove – JHOOM. It’s time to dance to the beats of Mast Malang Jhoom!,” Akshay Kumar wrote in his post.

While the reception for the song is great, some fans have raised questions regarding the choreography. The dance reminds the fans of Naatu Naatu from RRR. A few of them have started calling it a rip-off and flamed Bosco Caesar for the choreography. Many called it a straight-up copy of the award-winning Naatu Naatu.

It is not uncommon for movies to take inspiration from others, and the same goes for choreography. In Bollywood, which is especially focused on music and dance, there will be similarities in many places. While many fans understand this, it will not stop a few from pointing out small things.

Here are some of the fan reactions –

Prior to this, Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff both saw crowd-throwing slippers. The actors were visiting Lucknow for the promotion of their upcoming film when the situation got out of hand.

There was a massive crowd gathered which soon got out of control. Slippers were hurled towards the stage with chants of ‘Akshay Kumar Murdabad’. The police opened a lathi charge in order to take control of the situation.

As per reports, performers were tossing freebies to the audience. This led to chaos and subsequently devolved into the aforementioned situation. The actor requested the crow to maintain and be careful.

“Aap logon se haath jodd kar vinti hai please araam se, hum aapke yahan aaye hain , aapse milne, aapse baat karne, please apne aapko dekhiye, saath mein ladies bhi hain bachche bhi hain, main aapse request karta hun araam,” Akshay Kumar said.
