WI are ready. Again. Cricket tickets to England’s Tour of the West Indies.

England Tour of West Indies cricket tickets

West Indies and cricket – a connection so deep that it borders on the spiritual. The West Indies were the fourth nation to be given test status in 1928. Cricket in the West Indies really started taking off after the Second World War with their first away victory against England being a 3-1 win in the 1950 tour. The West Indies continued to have only sporadic successes as long as they were a white-dominated team. But all this changed in the 1960s once the team became a black dominated team when they started to become the force that would rule the world of cricket for nearly three decades. Cricket may have been invented and propagated by the English but it was propelled to another level by the power and beauty of the West Indies brand of cricket.

The West Indies teams of the 60s, 70s and 80s reads like a list of giants of the game. Boasting of stalwarts like Sir Frank Worrell, Sir Clyde Walcott, Sir Everton Weekes, Sir Garfield SobersLance Gibbs, to Brian Lara through Sir Viv Richards, Clive Lloyd, Rohan Kanhai, Michael Holding, Malcolm Marshal, Courtney Walsh and many, many more, the West Indies teams of the 1960s, 1970s and 80s were a force unlike anything ever seen before in the sport of cricket. They not only dominated, but decimated their opponents, whichever team it may have been, both home and away. Teams visited the West Indies with trepidation and welcomed them with fear. Their only objective while playing against them was to not get humiliated.

The present team may not have quite touched the same dizzying levels as those in the past but then no other team in the world has been able to reach those heights, so that’s not an issue really. But they have had their share of successes – they have been T20 World Cup winners twice and Champions Trophy winners. This success in the shorter format of the game plus the fact that a lot of the West Indian superstars like Kieron Pollard, Chris Gayle and Dwayne Bravo play in T20 leagues across the world has helped to given a fresh impetus to the game in the Caribbean. And the West Indies team has now started a fresh push to regain its former glory with the visiting England cricket team being the latest challenge.

The series promises to be a fascinating duel between a young and hungry West Indies team and an England team that has recently emerged victorious at home against the world’s no 1 cricket team. This is the big ticket cricket series in the world right now and Zoonga is the only place for the tickets to all the action on the pitch.

A series not to be missed. Will the West Indies rise up to the challenge and defeat England? The signs are promising. Reserve your spot to watch, from the ringside, the revival of one of cricket’s true powers!

The #BigTicketNext Final!

Who will win South Asia’s ONLY ATP event? That’s the question that is on everyone’s mind as we close in on the final match of the Tata Open Maharashtra 2019. In just a few hours from now the Centre Court at Pune’s Balewadi stadium will come alive with some electrifying tennis and the amazing energy of the fans.

Facing off in this major event are two stalwarts of the game – Kevin Anderson and Ivo Karlovic.

2018 was a fantastic, career-best year for world no. 6 Kevin Anderson. He took to social media a few days ago to share his preparations for the forthcoming season. And he looks in great nick. The road to 2019 for Anderson will certainly be paved by the successes he carries forward from the year that went by. And what a year it was for him – He began his year at the Tata Open Maharashtra tournament in January 2018 by making it to the finals. He fell last year to Gilles Simon (will today be different? For the sake of Anderson and his legion of fans, we certainly hope so!) It was his third tournament of the year that saw him muscle his way back into World Top Ten, when he won the inaugural New York Open. He reached the finals in the next tournament that he played, but fell to del Potro. He reached the quarters of the first two Masters of the year, the fourth round at the French Open. And then he made history. He pulled off the upset of the year when he defeated the iconic Roger Federer in an epic quarter final. He reached the finals at Wimbledon, where he fell to Djokovic. He became the first South African since Kevin Curren in 1985 to reach the finals at Wimbledon. And today, he looks to start his 2019 season with a win in the same place where his dream run began last year!

On the other end there will be the meteoric Ivo Karlovic. The gentle giant that Karlovic is, he continues to defy age and remain a formidable opponent. His serve, as we all remember, is the stuff of legend. With his height he is able to use that serve like a weapon. It is no surprise then that the Croatian former World No. 14 holds the record for highest number of aces served (13,024)! One of the tallest professional tennis players in history, Karlovic is a terrifying sight to behold as he prepares to serve what most certainly will come at you with the speed of a bullet. There are ways to beat Karlovic, of course. But if he gets into his unmatched serve and volley rhythm, there is no saying what he can pull off. It has been a great tournament so far for Karlovic – he defeated teenager Felix Auger-Aliassime in the first round in what was again a record; the age gap between the two of them, the oldest and the youngest players in the tournament was 21 years and six months, the largest on the ATP tour since 1976! As Karlovic prepares to take on the much, much younger Anderson today, he has a whole lot of popular support going his way too – after all, he is the oldest finalist on the ATP tour since 43 year old Ken Rosewall won the 1977 Hong Kong Championship.

Clearly, there’s so much excitement waiting to happen at the Centre Court at Balewadi today. And from the packed seats we can tell you, it is indeed #AdvantagePune!

One Republic Live in Mumbai!

Guys, guys! Here’s one of those open Secrets. OneRepublic is coming to India! You read that right, the Grammy nominated pop rock band from Colorado is set to perform in Mumbai on the 21st of April 2018 as a part of a two week Asia tour.

TL, DR: you’re getting What You Wanted!

Wondering what to expect at the concert? Let us tell you…

You will Stop and Stare

Because that’s how good Ryan Tedder, Zach Filkins, Drew Brown & Co are! From Tedder’s signature falsettos, lead guitarist Filkins’s guitar stylings, to the band’s high octave, energetic performances, OneRepublic live is truly an experience to remember. It also doesn’t hurt that these boys from Denver are really easy on the eyes!

Be a part of the good, Good Life

Frontman Tedder, called ‘The Undercover King of Pop’ by Billboard, has impressive songwriting and production credentials to his name – he has worked with the likes of U2, Adele, Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, Beyonce and more. The band has also collaborated and toured with other international artists like Bon Jovi, Pink, Maroon 5 and Leona Lewis, and they frequently perform some of these big hits on tour!

You’ll be Counting Stars

Along with the number of their hits! For the past decade, OneRepublic has been churning out earworm after earworm: they have a Grammy nomination, a #1 song, 4 songs on the Top 10, and more than 10 songs on the Billboard charts!

And now you have the chance to hear them live!

If I Lose Myself?

“What then?” you ask. Well, believe us, you WILL. And you’ll love every moment of it. Because how can you not when you watch performers like OneRepublic?

With their constantly evolving and changing sound, OneRepublic blends together many styles of music, from rock, indie, alternative, to pop and electronic to create their diverse track lists. And it works – they’ve delivered more and more crowd favorites with each of their four studio albums – all of which have been breakout successes.

Watch them Light It Up

OneRepublic has the unique ability to recreate an almost studio level of quality at their live performances. With their heartfelt ballads, electrifying chart-toppers and stripped-down acoustic covers, the band gives their everything to every performance.

And you can bet they’re bringing that energy to their debut performance in India! In a statement, the band said, “We’ve wanted to visit India for years, and are beyond excited to finally get the chance to not only perform a full concert but also explore your beautiful country. See you soon!”

So, fellow music lover, when you watch OneRepublic at the MMRDA Grounds just a month from now, you will definitely Feel Again and then say, “I Lived!”

Hurry, make All The Right Moves and book your tickets on kyazoonga.com/onerepublic NOW because there’s going to be No Vacancy soon!

#BigTicketNext Vijender Singh

He’s an Indian and he punches people for a living. At this point, dear reader, several names have flashed through your mind. But no, stop that train of thought. He is not a Bollywood actor, and neither is he a stuntman.

What he does… well it requires far more guts. And often quite a few spare teeth. He’s big, but the good kind of big, and as nimble as a deer. Tough as a tank and hits like a brick wall flying at Mach 2. Yes, ladies and gentleman, he is in fact, a boxer. Not just any boxer. He is India’s one and only Vijender Singh.

In his pro career,  he has fought 9 professionals bouts and have lost 0. That is a 100% win ratio. Prior to that, he has won 5b, 3 silver’s and 2 gold medals in various international competitions and is a force to be reckoned with. Not only that, but look up his fights on YouTube, and you will see that he is terribly fun to watch.

Boxing is an art. Unlike most art forms, this one does include massive bodily harm. But by god, the better the artist, the more fun it is to see. You wouldn’t pay a museum to see a drawing made by a 5 year old. You pay a museum to see the Mona Lisa. Vijender Singh is Leonardo and his fights are his Mona Lisa. Like the awesome Roger Federer, Vijender Singh dances around his opponent. Quick on his feet. It’s like the best ballet you will ever see.

So I guess what I’m trying to say here is, boxing is far more for you than it is for the boxers themselves. Sure, the glory is theirs, but the real winner is YOU. Sitting near the ringside and cheering your man on. And when “your man” is Vijender Singh, the feeling you get when he wins, well… how can you not call yourself the winner?

So do yourself a favour, switch off your TV and go watch him play on the 23rd of December in Jaipur. Don’t just watch, be there in flesh and blood and not pixels and satellite signals.

Book tickets to catch Vijender Singh in action on 23rd December at Sawai Manshing Indoor Stadium, Jaipur today!

Turning Turtle

olive_ridley_leonard

One hundred and seventy five million years ago, a weird creature that did not belong with the dinosaurs crawled onto the sandy shore of a land now lost. And for those 175 million years, these creatures that crawled onto the beaches have stayed. They’ve gone all around the world.

With their hard backs and soft insides, they seem to be unstoppable having survived the meteor that killed the dinosaurs, and the ice age which killed the mammoths.

But, as it would seem, the luck of the turtles has run out.

Yes, they survived the meteor and the ice age, but they appear to be falling now. It appears they cannot survive in the time of Man.

In 2011 the Tortoise and Freshwater Turtle Specialist Group published a report with the 25 species of turtles about to go extinct and the 40 most likely to go extinct, 65 species out of a known 300.

In the words of the biologist George Amato, “the amount and the volume of captured turtles… (has) vacuumed up entire species from areas in Southeast Asia.” It is calculated that about 90% of the turtles living in Asia are threatened.

They are a species that have lived through everything. How sad would it be if those they share the planet with are those who end up killing them.

“A friend in need is a friend in deed,” I believe we got this saying from an old turtle based story. Ironic isn’t it.

So be the friend that the turtles like the Loggerhead turtle, the Ridley turtle and the Flatback turtle need.

Donate to the charity of your choice, the world, the turtles need it. And yes, you’ll be thinking who cares about a few dead turtles. But we should care. Because it would be a shame to see their face next to the face of a dodo in a book in the chapter titled “Extinct Animals.”

And the best way to start helping them is to get to know them a little.

So pop on down to Australia, where some of the more endangered species and some of the more common species are protected in aquariums throughout the country.

Why? Because you are their #BigTicketNext to survival!

And, just because we care, and we think it’s cool, here’s our list of the best looking turtles from around the world:

  1. Loggerhead Sea Turtle – this turtle is found throughout the world.
  2. Spotted Turtle – Also known as Clemmy’s Guttata and is found in Canada and the USA
  3. The Sea Turtle – Found in all seas and oceans except the Polar regions.
  4. The Leatherback Sea Turtle – Found all over the world.
  5. Olive Ridley Sea Turtle – A resident of warm water and tropical islands it’s found mostly in the Indian and Pacific oceans.
  6. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle

World Turtle Day is May 23rd. Spend it with the turtles this year!

The Run Of Herculean Awesomeness

home-herculean

The most famous hero of Ancient Greece, the mighty demigod son of Zeus, the man who defeated the Nemean Lion and the Hydra and the Big Wild Boar and cleaning a-stable-full-of-flesh-eating-horses-that–have-not-been-cleaned-in-thousands-of-years in a day and capturing a Big Bull and slay a flock of murderous-flesh-eating-genociding crows and steal some golden apples from a-giant-dragon-with-one-hundred-heads-and-extremely-bad-breath and steal the crown of a warrior queen and steal Diomedes’s horses and capture a two-headed dude’s cows and capture Artemis’s golden butt and capture and bring back the 2-headed-german-shephard-immortal-guardian of the gates of hell.

Well then, a fitting name for the race; a race which demands more from the racers that the 12 tasks bestowed upon the hero.

But, while the obstacles faced by this hero were only 12, our heroes running this race have to face a total of 35! That is 12 plus… uh… many obstacles that they must overcome. And the winner, while does not get pardon for murder he may or may not have committed after being driven mad by Hera, does get some money and a big shiny trophy.

The obstacles are specially designed to test the contestants’ physical limit, to expand them and to break them. The race is India’s first race of this scale and ambition and runners from all over the world will be competing.

A physically and mentally demanding competition, the Herculean Run is sure to have spectators on the edge of their seat as they cheer on the man or woman that they support and want to win. This race, which takes place in Thane, Mumbai on the 4th of June, is the second largest of the world’s obstacle series.

It is definitely worth watching.

Why? Because it’s #BigTicketNext
