India vs Australia, 3rd Test: Following their first-ever Boxing Day Test defeat to India at home, Australia cricket team has been facing criticism from their media and former cricketers. The writing was on the wall ever since Australia were bowled out for 151 in response to India's 443 for 7 declared in the first innings of the Boxing Day Test. Pat Cummins and forecast of rain on Day 4 and Day 5 gave the hosts a glimmer of hope but Virat Kohli's men were relentless in their pursuit of a famous win at the big G.

Entertainment

In an interview with an entertainment website, Deepika said that motherhood "will happen when it has to happen". She said, "Motherhood trumps being married. That's what I hear from people who have had children. Of course, it will happen at some point but no, I think it is unfair to put women through that, to put a couple through that. I guess the day we stop asking the questions is when we will bring about change."Interestingly, when Deepika first met Ranveer, in 2012, she did not want to commit to him.
