Marvel Studios has been building their cinematic universe framework for many years now and it’s expected to hit a fever pitch when Avengers: Infinity War hits in 2018. What officially started in 2008 with a mechanical man has grown to include gods, space adventures and magic, as well as more down-to-Earth (literally and figuratively) television tales. As much as I love canon and longform storytelling, Spider-Man: Homecoming made it feel like I was playing hooky from school. And I loved it.
President Donald Trump's first meeting with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the White House on Monday was long on proclamations of friendship and short on confrontation over delicate policy issues.

India rode on Virat Kohli (76*) and Shikhar Dhawan’s (78) 128-run stand to defeat South Africa by eight wickets to seal ICC Champions Trophy 2017 semi-final berth. Earlier, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah picked two wickets each as India dismissed South Africa for 191 in a must-win Group B game . After opting to field, India were left frustrated by the resilience of Quinton De Kock (53) and Hashim Amla (35). However, they suffered a couple of run outs to be reduced from 140/3 to 191 all out in less than 20 overs. India is likely to face Bangladesh in the last four clash.
