The last time Pakistan won an ICC tournament, Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid were still active international players, Jasprit Bumrah was probably writing his 10th standard board exams, Virat Kohli had zero international centuries (he has 43 now) and Shikhar Dhawan was yet to make his international debut. Outside the world of cricket, Donald Trump was just a TV star with dreams of firing Barack Obama and Lance Armstrong was still a legend.
There was a point in the India-Bangladesh semi-final when Sabbir Rahman threatened to snatch away the early advantage from India after Soumya Sarkar's wicket in the first over. The Rajshahi born batsman's counter-attack was even being compared with Aravinda De Sliva's 1996 semi-final blitz at one point of time. He dismissed full deliveries through the off side while used his feet and converted good-length deliveries into full ones by charging down the track and clearing the infield.
Two batsmen - one with a full length dive - trying desperately to make it inside the crease, as if their lives depended on it, perfectly athletic but only to be spotted at the wrong end, completely summed up South Africa on a sunny afternoon at the Oval - clueless. The Proteas were already recuperating from AB de Villiers' run out when Faf Du Plessis edged one to short third man off Ravichandran Ashwin and in mother of all comical mix-ups, David Miller was sold down the river by Du Plessis.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
