Overcoming Overeating: Managing That Voice In Your Head

«Darn, I forgot to call her back. That’s two days in a row! She’s going to be pissed. Maybe I should try her now. No, it’s too late right now. I’ll do it tomorrow.»

«Shoot, I can’t remember his name. Here he come. What is his name? Dave?… Don? He told me yesterday. Why can’t ever remember this stuff? Ugh, this is going to be awkward.»

«God, I just want some chocolate right now. Maybe I should go out and get some before the store closes. But once I start I won’t stop. No, I’m not going to do that again tonight. I always end up eating way more than I want to… I really want some chocolate. OK, I’ll get some tonight and tomorrow I’ll eat really well all day, no sweets.»

«I just ate 2 large chocolate bars in one sitting. What is wrong with me?! I feel so ugly and fat and disgusting and useless.»

In case you haven’t noticed already, you have a voice inside your head that never stops. It goes on and on. No matter what the situation, it has something to say. Have you ever wondered how it decides what to say and when to say it? Have you ever wondered if what it’s saying is important? Or if its even true?

And if right now you are hearing, «I don’t know what you’re talking about. I don’t have a voice in my head.»… THAT’S the voice I’m referring to. Notice that this voice takes both sides of a conversation. It doesn’t care which side it takes, it just keeps on talking. It rationalizes, it makes decisions and justifies, it rambles.

When you’re tired and trying to fall asleep, it’s the dialogue that’s running around saying,

«Wait! I forgot to send that email! I can’t go to sleep yet. I remembered that earlier this evening but I didn’t send it. If I don’t get up and write it now… oh, geez. It’s really late. I mean, honestly, what’s the difference if I send it now or first thing in the morning? It’s silly to turn on the light, get up and type that out right now. I’ll just do it tomorrow. I need to get to sleep, I have a lot of things to do tomorrow. It’s so hard to fall asleep right now.»

If you spend time observing this mental chatter, you’ll quickly notice it never shuts up. If you watch it closely, you’ll notice that it’s just trying to find a comfortable place to settle. It will change sides in an instant if that seems like it’s more comfortable. If it realizes it’s wrong, it will adjust it’s perspective and take on the opposite side and keep on talking. Once you start noticing the mental chatter, if you keep at it, you’ll begin to notice repeating patterns around certain things. These are the thoughts or chatter that come up again and again. The mental conversations or debates that you have with yourself that you’ve been having for as long as you can remember.

An interesting thing to discern when you find these repeating conversations is what feelings you have as the dialogue is rambling away.

If you’re thinking, «I’m such a pig, I just eat so much food all the time no matter what I do,» this creates a feeling. You may not have noticed or made the distinction between the thought (what I’d call an «invisible script») and the feeling created by it. For me, making the distinction between my thoughts and feelings initially took some practice. I had them collapsed as the same thing, all part of the endless dialogue from the voice in my head.

It occurred to me like the voice was reality, talking about what was true.

Then I began to watch the voice and realize how fickle it was. I noticed that this voice would often rationalize things and change sides, depending on what was comfortable. I realized that it was actually silly to believe what it was saying was true, since it would flip around so quickly.

That’s around the time I also realized that there were two parts here: there was me, listening to the voice, and then there was the voice. I sometimes refer to the voice as the «animal brain». It can also be called the «ego». Whatever you want to refer to it as, it’s the part that chatters… and then there’s you that notices this part chattering.

Once I was identifying this voice and it’s patterns, what became fascinating was seeing how the voice created feelings.

At one point I journaled about this, writing down my thoughts in one column and my feelings in another.

I was noticing how powerful my thoughts—that voice in my head—were in creating the way I felt. And since the voice in my head is so fickle, when I’m not aware of it, my feelings resulting from the voice are at its mercy.

If the voice is being particularly nasty due to being triggered by something, I feel worse and worse. If I’m not aware, then when the voice says harsh things, I believe those things to be true. The voice may say something nasty about me, my behavior or my appearance, or it may say something gossipy and mean about someone else. Either way, my feelings are affected.

It becomes a snowball effect: something triggers the voice (or my «animal brain» or my ego), the voice starts saying harsh things, I feel bad, the voice keeps going, I feel worse, and that affects my behaviors, actions and words.

A great example of this is if I look in the mirror and the voice says something nasty about my appearance, then I feel ugly, shameful, weak, etc. How likely is it that I’m then going to go nourish myself with the best, most delightful food that I can find and eat only the amount that feels comfortable?

Not likely.

More likely is that I’ll beat myself up, restrict my eating all day because I deserve to starve, then cave in and eat a whole bunch in rebellion. This is a very likely outcome if I’m not aware of this voice and not noticing how it affects me.

So what’s there to do with this voice? If you try to ignore it or tell it to shut up, it’s only going to become louder and more insistent.

The best way to liberate yourself from this incessant chatter is to zoom out and watch it. Become an observer of it. Notice it as a mechanism that has the ability to appear like it’s speaking the truth and sounds like someone is in your head talking to you. Don’t think about it, just notice it.

No matter what that voice says, nice things or nasty things, it’s all the same kind of chatter. It doesn’t matter if it’s saying superficial things or spiritual things. It’s still just a voice in your head. If you are observing it saying things, it’s not actually you—you are the one that’s hearing it. You’re the observer.

When you begin to realize you’re not this voice, you’re just the one that hears it, you’re making an extraordinary leap of growth.

The more you watch it objectively, the more you’ll start to see that the voice is meaningless. No matter what the voice is saying, life will continue to unfold as it always has. The voice may hate it or may love it, but life goes on.

So, if this voice is so meaningless, then why does it exist? The answer to this lies in understanding why it says what it says when it says it.

This is when your skills of becoming an observer of the voice come into play. When you can observe the voice, you can start to become interested in why it’s saying what it’s saying. It might be because there’s a buildup of energy inside of you about something that needs to get out. The voice often gets more active when there’s a buildup of anxiety, fear, challenge, or desire. The voice also runs even when there’s nothing in particular bothering you. It mostly acts as a narrator of your world. It says things like,

«Look at that. The flowers really look good in front of that house.»

«Oh, there goes a basset hound. I love those kind of dogs.»

«Geez, look at that dress she’s wearing. It’s not exactly the color I would have chosen, but it looks pretty good on her.»

This narration is a way of helping you to feel secure. You’re noticing the world around you, so you must be a part of that world. If you’re noticing the world around you, then you are having a direct experience with it. The voice is validating your existence.

So this voice goes about validating your existence, then mixing that in your mind with all your other thoughts based on your past, your impressions, your perspectives, etc. As this soup of thought mixes together, you then internally interpret your world. (So what you end up experiencing is actually your personal understanding of the world according to you. It’s not the unfiltered, raw experience of what’s actually out there. But that’s another conversation for another time.)

The voice exists to help you survive in the world based on how it’s interpreting things. It will adjust however it needs to in order to feel comfortable and validated.

The more you can notice the voice, the more you can use it as an indicator.

If you notice that it’s getting nasty or loud or obsessive, you can become curious. If you notice that you’re feeling low, watch what’s coming from the voice that’s creating the feeling. So rather than reacting automatically and reaching for more food because you’re feeling low, or bored, or lonely… you can listen to the voice. You can give it space to run it’s course.

Watch the voice urge you to eat more, or chastise you for losing control or whatever it wants to do. Acknowledge it as mental chatter. Then look for why it’s saying what it’s saying. Appreciate it for trying to express something that’s going on for you, and then let it go if it’s not serving you. It might get louder. It might try harder to convince you. Keep appreciating it for doing its job by indicating something that it wants expressed, and keep letting it go.

The more you practice this, the easier it will be to be to identify as the observer and not the voice. It’s the doorway to having the power to create anything and everything you want in your life.

If you learn how to listen to the voice and use it effectively, this same voice that has caused worry, anxiety and neurosis can become the launching pad for getting you where you truly want to go.

Football Special Teams Training – How to Bust the Wedge

Special teams can make the difference in who goes home with the win and who suffers the loss.

Simply put the receiving teams job is to advance the kick off return as far down the field as possible. With a couple of key blocks, put the ball in the end zone. Setting up those key blocks starts with the wedge.

The wedge as we all know is a wall of players the return man screens behind hoping to find the opening that can spring him for big yards or a 6 point run back.

The kicking team sends down its rushers and wedge busters, running full speed, risking life and limb as they hurl their bodies at the players making up the wedge. Sometimes the wedge busters are successful, stopping big run backs. However there are many times they are not, allowing the big momentum changing run back. Momentum that can change the out come of the game.

How do we become more effective in busting the return teams blocking wedge? Don’t try to run over or knock down the blockers. Instead split the blockers.

Run straight at the blocker full speed, sell him on the fact you plan to run over the top of him. No matter how skilled and practiced he is, at the last moment he will be bracing for the impact. Rather than make head to head contact, split the blockers, run between them taking the best angle to the ball carrier. Not only do you reduce injury risk to yourself, you will frequently find yourself in position to make the tackle, stopping a long kick off return and staving off any momentum changing returns, like a 6 pointer.

Shy Guy Dating – A Quick Guide to the Perfect Gift

The holidays are a great time to show that special person in your life that you are thinking of them. Whether it is the girl in your office you’ve been eyeing, a friendship you want to take to the next level, or someone you have been seeing for awhile, the art of gift giving can say a lot in very few words. Giving a gift is a part of a modern social repartee, and the perfect opportunity to show your thoughtfulness and charm. It is a simple and generous gesture that can yield remarkable appreciation and general feelings of bliss. And who doesn’t want feelings of bliss? Here are three quick things to keep in mind.

*Buy her something that she wouldn’t buy herself. What’s that luxury item she’s spotted recently but would never buy for herself? Think interesting art, or decadent chocolates. This present doesn’t have to break the bank, it might be a fragrant candle, or beautifully made scarf. Remember to look out for her cues, women tend to be vocal about the things they like.

*Give her an experience. Not all gifts have to come in boxes with a bow. There are some great gifts that come in the shape of special event tickets tucked into a card, or a memorable evening about town or a series of dance lessons. These are great because it can be a chance to spend time with that person without the necessity or stress of calling it a «date». Remember: If you are giving the gift of an experience, be sure there is something small for her to open. Maybe a card with tickets inside, or even a small pair of mittens, if the experience is to go ice-skating.

*Use your strengths. Are you a great chef? Cook her a meal. Kick-ass tennis player? Give her a lesson. Computer genius? Set up something special for her computer. Utilize the strengths you have in your repertoire and give her the gift of your time and energy. Women adore watching a man excelling at something he enjoys. Remember: Make the gift official with a card stating your present.

No matter the gift, or your budget, don’t forget the old adage that «It’s the thought that counts». Utilize the opportunity to show your kindness and inventiveness,. There is one last thing to remember: Don’t forget to sign the card.

United Is On First Place Since Chelsea Restrained City

After its fifth draw in the season, Manchester City had to give away the 1st position of the table to their nemesis, Manchester United, which defeated the unfortunate QPR.

Two weekends ago, after the blasting 5-0 result Manchester City let fall on Aston Villa, the reigning king climbed to the first position of the standings after five weeks alternating between the 2nd and 3rd place. City was back on the throne for the first time in the season. However after their meeting on Sunday with the European Champion, Chelsea, the Citizens couldn’t keep the leading seat, for Manchester United, which was stalking them a point behind, beat the Queens Park Rangers the day before.

On Saturday the Rangers travelled north to face the Red Devils at the Old Trafford, where as expected the hosts win, and not so much that they had to bear a goal from the visitors. At 51 minutes of the match, QPR opened the scoreboard with a close range shot from Jamie Mackie, not too elaborated, still as exciting for the Londoners as if it would’ve, for it raised hopes of a first triumph for the club. Because until now the Rangers have only reach 4 ties and suffered 9 fatal defeats, which have put them on the bottom of the table, in urgent need of a miracle to leave the relegation zone.

Unfortunately for Harry Redknapp’s side, the Red Devils didn’t stay too long in disadvantage and really soon riddled Julio Cesar’s goal, exactly three scores within 4-minutes-intervals. The first one arrived at 64′ through a corner from Rooney that got headed by Danny Welbeck into Jonny Evans way, who scored his third goal in the season. Darren Fletcher goals’ drought finished at 68′, when again resulting from a corner from Rooney Fletcher caught the ball from afar and with a left kick sent the ball into the Hoop’s goal. The final bullet came through a shot from the Mexican Javier Hernandez at 72′. Subsequent to the 3-1, both clubs had some nice shots to score, but none could convert them.

With the 3 points earned on Saturday by United, Barclays had a new leader and the Sky Blues knew they had to win their 13th round fixture on the next day in order to recover the first spot; nonetheless the rival awaiting was a tougher one than United’s.

Inverse to his Manchester neighbour, City went south to London to face the Pensioners at Stamford Bridge, and as expected was quite challenging for both clubs. For Rafael Benitez, Chelsea’s brand new coach, it was an influential encounter, for it was his very first game since he got signed as interim manager of the Blues, in replacement of Roberto di Matteo. Because of the dislikes from many local supporters it was especially important for the Spaniard to make a good job on this first match at home.

Things started up relatively balanced and through all the game both sides kept it that way: in constant search for a goal and good defence. City had some good chances to score during the first-half; with opportunities from Pablo Zabaleta, Aleksandar Kolarov and James Milner. But with help mostly from Ashley Cole and Cesar Azpilicueta, Petr Cech was able to protect the Blues goal. The most obvious chance to untied was lost by Sergio Aguero, a few minutes before half time, when from close range and totally alone in the area, the Argentinean sent the ball straight to Cech.

In second half the hosts got more active and started to create more opportunities to score, among the players attacking Joe Hart’ goal were Juan Mata, Emboaba Oscar and Matija Nastasic. But the Citizens’ defence was alert and didn’t allow itself a single mistake. In the end it was more of a sober match, because even though both teams did great in defence, the highlights didn’t really count with surprising moves or plays honestly the match deserved the 0-0 final score.

Now the Citizens, which continue undefeated, are in second place with 29 points, following the Red Devils just one point behind. City’s next chance to climb back to the top might arrive the coming Wednesday 28th, when the two clubs from Manchester will have the 14th fixture. While United will held its 7th home game, this time against West Ham (8th), City will go west to visit Wigan (15th).

Famous Soccer Players From Spain

Spain is under the lime light having won the two most prestigious tournaments that the world of soccer has to offer; the Euro 2008 and the World Cup 2010. Having won both competitions here is a look at two of their prized strikers who are indeed very famous in their own respect.

The first of these two players is Spain’s striker Fernando Torres. His full name is Fernando Jose Torres Sanz and he has a nickname which is El Nino. The reason for this nickname is that Torres is very young and looks even younger. He was born on the 20th of March 1984 in Fuenlabrada in the Community of Madrid and began playing football at the age of five. By the age of eleven he was scouted by his first official league team Atletico Madrid in 1995. He started off playing in the youth team and worked his way up and won his first youth title in 1998. He was also part of the under 15 teams that Madrid sent to the Nike Cup which had the resulted with them winning the tournament and later on Torres was voted the best player in Europe for his age group. The next year in 1999 he signed his first professional contract with Atletico.

In 2007 he had signed a six years contract with Liverpool for £20 million which was the highest transfer fee in liverpool’s history. Whilst at Liverpool Torres made 102 appearances and had scored 65 goals. He also became the fastest player for Liverpool to score 50 goals. In 2011 Torres had signed a contract with Chelsea for £50 million making him the most expensive Spanish player and it was also the most expensive British transfer and it also made him the fourth most expensive player in history.

The second famous player for Spain is David Villa. His full name is David Villa Sanchez and he is nicknamed El Guaje which means kid in Austrias. He was born in Tuilla, a small village in Asturias, a region in northern Spain. He started his football career rather later due to a serious injury at the age of four when he suffered a fracture to his right femur, but he made a complete recovery.

He made his first official debut aged 19 with his local club Sporting Gijon in 2001 where he made 80 appearances and had scored 38 goals. In 2003 he was signed for 3 million Euros by Real Zaragoza. He was with this club from 2003 up to 2005 during which he made 73 appearances and scored 32 goals. In 2005 Villa made a move to one of Spain’s heavy weight clubs which was Valencia for 12 million Euros. He was there from 2005 to 2010 during this time he had made 166 appearances and scored 108 goals. He was also the top goal scorer for he Euro 2008 tournament one which Spain went on to win. In 2010 Villa made his most expensive transfer to Barcelona for a fee of 40 million Euros and is still currently there. So far he has made 22 appearances and scored 15 goals.

Well there are two famous Spanish players I’m sure there are many more that I have missed out but those two are most commonly known and related to Spain.

Liverpool is home for much world class architecture consisting of about 2,500 buildings. Just like the famous Taj Mahal and the Pyramids of Giza, this city's set of buildings and waterfront are acknowledged as one of the natural and cultural World Heritage Sites.

The said heritage site covers the waterfront from Albert Dock, running through The Pier up to the famous Stanley Dock, including a good number of historic commercial districts in the area. It stretches as far as the Rope Walks area and the cultural quarter where St. George's Hall reigns as the major attraction.

However, one should note that the wonders of Liverpool should not be mistaken for the World Heritage Site alone for in and around this city, you will be surprised with the cultural wonders that await you.

Aside from the cathedrals, Liverpool boasts of many fine cultural gems within the William Brown Street better known as the Cultural Quarter. The street houses The William Brown Library, Walker Art Gallery, and the World Museum Gallery. Together with the beautiful St, George's Hall, these buildings are famous neo-classical edifices.

If you are in for a tour of Liverpool's fine early beginnings, then take a walk in that area and find the World Museum Liverpool, Tate Liverpool, and the Merseyside Maritime Museum. For sure, you would find a splendid experience that will qualify as your latest cultural feat.

A visit to Liverpool is incomplete without dropping by at the Pier Head where the most striking and famous buildings are located: Royal Liver Building, Cunard Building and the Port of Liverpool Building.

If you are in for a more contemporary cultural quest, then you must consider spending a day or two at Liverpool's The World of Glass. The place which offers countryside culture matched with a vibrant life at night and a pulsating set of sporting events is nestled between the cosmopolitan cities of Liverpool and Manchester.

Another must visit around Liverpool that offers its guests with a peek into history, and to that of the world of sports is Halton. The towns and villages of Runcorn, Hale, Widnes, Daresbury and Moore belong to this city's must-venture-to list.

Soccer Fixture: Swansea V Liverpool

Swansea first played Liverpool on 11th January, 1936, just nine days before the death of King George V.

The match took place at Liverpool's Anfield ground in a third-round FA Cup tie which Liverpool won 1.0. Swansea played under their original name of Swansea Town from their formation in 1912. They would play as Swansea Town until Swansea – the second largest city in Wales after Cardiff – was given city status in 1969, whereupon the club changed its name to Swansea City.

Swansea's first home match against Liverpool took place more than 22 years later, on 25th September, 1954 in a match played in front of 25,836 in the Second Division of the Football League. They won this encounter 3.2 with goals from Len Allchurch and two from Harry Griffiths. Brother of Ivor Allchurch – the 'golden boy' of Welsh football – Len had made his debut for Swansea as a 17-year old in 1950 and made 347 appearances in total, ending his career with the club after spells away at Sheffield United and Stockport County.

'Harry' Griffiths played even more games for the South Wales team – 421 – and scored 72 goals. He was briefly Swansea's manager from 1975 and 1978 and served under ex-Liverpool great John Toshack as assistant manager until his death in April, 1978 – just before the final two matches of that season which would see Swansea gain promotion to the old Third Division.

That first match in 1954 was played at Swansea's home ground: Vetch Field. Originally a piece of waste ground where generations of children had played football, it was covered in vetch – a cabbage-like plant used for cow feed which just grew wild. This became known as Vetch Field and was leased by the Swansea Gas Light Company to the Swansea League who laid out clinker pitches. Swansea Town played their first matches here and the club stayed until its move to the purpose-built Liberty Stadium in 2005.

Swansea have never won away at Liverpool in the league. Their first league defeat at Anfield came on 17th March, 1956. The match finished 4.1 with two goals from Joe Dickson – who had made his first-team debut that season – one from Eric Anderson and one from legendary Scottish striker Billy Liddell. Liddell would be top league goalscorer for Liverpool in eight out of nine seasons he played for them and is fourth in their all-time league appearances table.

Swansea have won at Anfield in both the FA Cup and League Cup competitions. Their FA Cup win came in the quarter-final stage on 29th February, 1964. A Leap Year, it would have taken a giant leap of faith to expect Swansea to get anything from Bill Shankly's all-star team who were on their way to the First Division title that season. However, goals from Jimmy McLaughlin and Eddie Thomas secured the victory in a 2.1 win in front of a largely disbelieving 52, 608 fans.

Swansea's League Cup victory at Liverpool came much more recently – in the fourth round on 31st October, 2012. Goals from Chico, Nathan Dyer and Jonathan De Guzman secured a 3.1 win with Liverpool scoring a solitary goal through Luis Suarez. Buoyed by this result, Swansea went on to win the trophy that season, beating Bradford City 5.0 in the Final.

Surely one of the most exciting matches between these two teams came on 3rd October, 1959 in a Second Division match as home side Swansea Town beat Liverpool 5.4. It is the highest aggregate score in matches between them and the only time that Swansea have scored five against Liverpool. Len Allchurch scored again that day, as did Peter Davies, Colin Webster and two from Brayley Reynolds who made over 151 league appearances for the club after signing from Cardiff City earlier that year.

Liverpool first won in Swansea on 5th April, 1958, again in the Second Division. Jimmy Melia and Bobby Murdoch scored in a 2.0 victory for The Reds. Melia had also scored in the corresponding match in Liverpool that season – on 12th October, 1957 – as Welsh center-forward Tony Rowley scored two and Don Campbell the other in a 4.0 win.

Swansea's first match with Liverpool as Swansea City came on 23rd January, 1971 in the fourth round of the FA Cup at Anfield in which Liverpool cruised to a 3.0 victory with goals from Chris Lawler, John Toshack and Ian St John. Liverpool would get to the Final that season, only to lose to double-winners Arsenal after extra-time.

Welsh striker John Toshack is very much part of Swansea's history and, as player-manager led them from Fourth Division to First in just four remarkable seasons. They played in the First Division for the first time in the 1981-82 season – in which a Welsh club was part of the top flight for the first time since Cardiff City's relegation twenty years earlier

Before their first First Division meeting the sides met at the Vetch Field on 2nd January, 1982 in the third round of the FA Cup. It was not a promising start to the new year for Swansea as they went out 4.0 with goals from central defenders Mark Lawrenson and Alan Hansen and then two from another legendary Welsh striker: Ian Rush.

However, in that historic league meeting just over a month later on 16th February, 1982 Swansea won 2.0 with second-half goals from Leighton James and Alan Curtis as Swansea went on to finish in a very respectable sixth place in the First Division.

Swansea City first faced Liverpool at their new Liberty Stadium – and for the first time at home in the Premier League – on 13th May, 2012, winning 1.0 with a goal from Danny Graham just four minutes from time. It was also the last time they would beat Liverpool in the league until almost exactly four years later on 1st May, 2016 when two goals from Andre Ayew and one from Jack Cork gave Swansea a 3.1 win with Christian Benteke replying for Liverpool.

Overall, Liverpool's record in these encounters throughout football history is superior with them winning more than twice the number of matches they have lost. Liverpool have scored four goals against Swansea in the league on no fewer than seven different occasions and five on two more – in 1961 and almost fifty years later in 2013.

The biggest victory for either side came in an FA Cup third-round replay on 9th January, 1990 at Anfield after the sides had drawn 0.0 in Swansea three days earlier. Liverpool won the replay 8.0 with Ian Rush scoring a hat-trick and two more coming from John Barnes. Liverpool would eventually lose to Crystal Palace in the semi-final of the competition – 4.3 after extra time – but would win the league title that season by nine points from Aston Villa.

Sehwag Inspires Delhi to Easy Win in IPL

KOCHI (India), April 30: Virender Sehwag struck a 47-ball 80 to power Delhi Daredevils to a 38-run victory over Kochi Tuskers Kerala in the Indian Premier League on Saturday.

The Delhi captain lashed eight fours and five sixes to help his team post a challenging 157-7 following a disastrous start after choosing to bat first.

Medium-pacers Morne Morkel, Irfan Pathan and Ajit Agarkar then shared seven wickets before South African spinner Roelof van der Merwe claimed the last three dismissals from five deliveries to bowl out Kochi for 119 in 18.5 overs.

It was only the Delhi’s third win in eight matches.

Delhi lost two wickets with four runs on the board after India paceman Shanthakumaran Sreesanth struck twice in four balls on a pitch with variable bounce.

Sreesanth bowled Australian opener David Warner (3) and Naman Ojha (0) before Sehwag opened up to hammer spinner Ravindra Jadeja for two successive sixes and then his 50 with a six off medium-pacer Vinay Kumar.

Sehwag put on 56 for the fourth wicket with Yogesh Nagar (22) before holing out at the extra cover boundary after having hit 49 runs off the last 15 balls he faced.

Pathan dismissed New Zealand opener Brendon McCullum (7) and Parthiv Patel (1) and Morkel sent back Australian batsmen Michael Klinger (2) and Brad Hodge (27) plus Balachandra Akhil (13).

Agarkar had skipper Mahela Jayawardene (18) caught by Sehwag and Jadeja (31), before van der Merwe polished off the tail to ensure Kochi lost their fifth match out of eight.

Meanwhile in another match played on Friday, Virat Kohli smashed a 42ball 67 with the help of four sixes and West Indies opener Chris Gayle a brisk 49 off 26 balls to set up Royal Challengers Bangalore’s 26-run victory over Pune Warriors in Bangalore.

Pune finished on 155-5 chasing a 182-run target to suffer their fifth defeat in seven matches.

New Zealander Jesse Ryder top-scored with a 34ball 51 for Pune and skipper Yuvraj Singh cracked 41 off 23 balls with the help of three sixes.

World Cup Goalkeepers – Edwin van der Sar

A towering personality Edwin van der Sar is probably the best goalkeeper to have played for Netherlands. Born on the October 29, 1970, he began his football career by playing for his local city team FC Foreholte in Voorhout.

His athleticism and sharp reflexes under the bar brought him to the notice of major clubs. He first moved to VV Noordwijk, and from there to Ajax. He was apart of the Ajax team that won the UEFA Champions League in 1995.

Van der Sar hit big time when he moved to Juventus. In 2001, he joined Fulham, and started playing in the English Premier League. His biggest change came in 2005, when he moved to Manchester United for a rumored 2 million pounds. The green uniform of Manchester United also won him a nickname: Jolly Green Giant.

Van der Sar wore the national jersey for the first time in 1995 when he played for Netherlands against Belarus. Since then he has played more than a 100 matches for his country, and is likely to emerge as the most capped Dutch player.

His crowning moment was when he won the penalty shootout against Sweden in the Euro 2004 quarter final. This was the first time that the Dutch had won a penalty shoot-out. Van der Sar is admired for his grit and determination, and his ability to analyze the moves of the opposition forwards.

Some of the trophies that have come his way are Champions League, European Super Cup, and Intercontinental Cup.
