Connect to an 'event'

Connect the following to an event and give me the reason behind each picture being a reference to the 'event'

Lateral Connect
Correctly cracked by Aman Oberoi & Vinay Parnami
ANSWER: The answer to the question is "The Ball of the Century" bowled by Shane Warne to dismiss Mike Gatting in the Ashes of 1993. The match was played at Old Trafford Cricket Stadium in Manchester, England.
The first picture is a representation of Magnus Effect which causes an object to "swerve" in air. The ball swerved and drifted towards the leg stump of Gatting, turned and bounced on pitching and broke through his defence.
The second picture is a logo of the Lancashire County Cricket Club which plays its home games at Old Trafford Cricket Stadium.
The third picture is an album cover of a band called The Duckworth Lewis Method who composed a track called "jiggery pokery" on the ball of the century. You can listen to the track here:
The fourth picture is of the coat of arms of the city of manchester.
The fifth is a lateral connect to the ashes. I don't think its got anything to do with The Ashes (Test Series)

BTW, you can have a look at the ball here:

Literature (Should be easy!)

Connect the following to a poet/politician:

and the last picture is a tangential hint:
very shady hint..
P.S.: I'd really appreciate if you do not Google/tin-eye, etc. the book cover, there are enough hints to lead you to the answer. 

Answer: On Capt. Grim's request I'm posting the answer to this question really prematurely, yes, the answer is Pablo Neruda. Here's how it connects: He belongs to Chile, so there's the logic behind the red chilly, he finds a mention in HIMYM's episode titled, "The Naked Man"(explains the picture of Josh Radnor), the book shown is one of his more famous works and he always penned down his works in green ink as he thought it to be the color of peace.

ANSWER: All these find a mention in the song "We didn't start the fire" by Billy Joel

Kudiyaan Ne Naa Mera Rakhiya

He was born on July 6, 1947 in Bowie, Arizona to a Native American (Navajo) father and an Italian American mother. He graduated from Rangeford High School, and then was drafted into the United States Army at the age of 17 on June 8, 1964. He was deployed to South Vietnam in September 1966. He returned to the U.S. in 1967 and began training in the Special Forces (Green Berets) at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. In late 1969, he was re-deployed to Vietnam. In November 1971, he was captured by North Vietnamese forces near the Chinese-Vietnamese border and held at a POW camp, where he and other American POWs were repeatedly tortured. He escaped captivity in May 1972, but was then re-deployed. At some point in his military career he also apparently received training in flying helicopters.

Upon his return to the U.S., he discovered that many American civilians hated the returning soldiers, and he himself was subject to humiliation and embarrassment by having anti-war "hippies" throw garbage at him, call him "baby killer", and exclude him from society. His experiences in Vietnam and back home resulted in an extreme case of post-traumatic stress disorder. At the same time, inner questions of self identity and reflectiveness cause him to lash out at society rather than handling difficult situations in a "civilized" manner. Who?

ANSWER: Well, as if the title was not enough, the answer is, in fact, JOHN J. RAMBO

P.S. the title is a famous song by punjabi pop singer Jazzy B!

Just identify.... if you watch your movies well, you should get it easily..
(you have to identify the guy at the top and the small guy at the bottom, to be precise!)


If any one of you has ever seen the movie "The Greatest Game Ever Played" or read the book by the same title, you would have guessed it right.
The gentleman on top is FRANCIS OIMET and the boy at the bottom is his 10-year old caddie EDDIE LOWRY, for more on this visit
