Hampshire opener Michael Carberry marked his return to cricket with a century against Cardiff MCCU at the Ageas Bowl on Sunday (April 2). The left-handed batsman, who has played six Tests for England, was diagnosed with a cancerous tumour last July and missed the second half of last season.

Carberry, who returned to cricket after a successful treatment, was given a standing ovation by the crowd after he was dismissed by David O’Sullivan, but not before scoring a 121-ball 100. His innings helped Hampshire post 289 in the first innings, before reducing the opposition to 21 for 2 at Stumps on the opening day.

In an official statement last week, the left-hander had said, “I would like to thank my family, the club, the supporters and my team-mates worldwide for all the kind messages of support and love through another very tough time in my career and life.

“There is still a long way to go to being ‘recovered’ fully, but the outpouring of support from the cricket family has helped massively in getting me back playing and I’m looking forward to another great summer with Hampshire.

“In regards to the media, I would like to thank them for respecting my privacy in dealing with my illness and I would like to ask for this to continue on my return.”

Nach Baliye 8: This couple gets a standing ovation in the very first episode

Nach Baliye 8: The first episode of the show impresses the judge squad — Sonakshi Sinha, Terence Lewis and Mohit Suri. Nach Baliye 8: The first episode of the show impresses the judge squad — Sonakshi Sinha, Terence Lewis and Mohit Suri.

Nach Baliye 8 is all set to bring to your drawing rooms the ‘romance vala dance’ from April 2. But before the celebrity couples paint the television screens red with their romantic dance performances, the makers of the show have released the promo videos of the dance show. In the recently released promo, we witness the Nach jodis taking up the rapid fire round and nailing it with their offbeat replies.

The television couples have their own versions of romance. While Shoaib Ibrahim expresses it in superstar Amitabh Bachchan’s style as he sings ‘Humka Ishq Hua hai yaaro’ from 1983 film Coolie, for comedian-actor Siddarth Jadhav romance, is his wife Trupti. Later when all the participants are questioned about who is the better dancer, Sanam Johar’s partner Abigail Pande finds herself the better one as she thinks she has taught Sanam everything he knows. Vivek Dhaiya neither finds himself nor his better half Divyanka Tripathi a good dancer as, he says, the other nine couples are better than him and Divyanka.

Watch the promo here to see who said what in the rapid fire round.

The other promo sees Sonakshi Sinha who is all set to judge the dance show in her all glamorous avatar. And, Sonakshi along with her judge squad — Terence Lewis and Mohit Suri — has also given the first standing ovation of the season in the very first episode of the show. Shoaib Ibrahim and Dipika Kakar are the ones who have won the heart of the judges with their first performance only.
