With dressing room drifting away, Virat Kohli quits T20 captaincy but it might not safeguard 50-over leadership | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Virat Kohli's decision to quit India's T20 captaincy after next month's World Cup is certainly an act of self-preservation in terms of getting his mojo back with the bat but at the same time, the development seems to be a sign of things to come in the ODI set-up. While Kohli has maintained that he would remain captain in the other two formats, one can't say with absolute certainty that he will be India's 50-over skipper going into the 2023 World Cup at home. 🇮🇳 ❤️ https://t.co/Ds7okjhj9J— Virat Kohli (@imVkohli) 1631794995000While workload management is an absolutely acceptable reason for quitting T20 captaincy but if one looks at India's calendar till 2023, there are just about 20 bilateral T20 games apart from the World Cup in which Kohli won't be captain.

Post Tokyo heartbreak, Harmilan returns to shatter 1500m National Record | More sports News – Times of India

CHANDIGARH: On June 21, Patiala girl Harmilan Kaur Bains was inconsolable when she narrowly missed out of the qualifying mark of 4:04.20 for the Tokyo Olympics in the women's 1500m event.

virat kohli: Highlights of Kohli’s T20 captaincy: Series win in SENA countries | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Virat Kohli would be looking to get his hands on the World Cup trophy next month, his last assignment as India's T20 skipper, but irrespective of how it pans out in the UAE, he can take pride in an envious leadership record in the format. India's winning percentage under Kohli is better than Mahendra Singh Dhoni's tenure during which the side won the inaugural T20 World Cup in 2007. India have won 27 out of 45 matches under Kohli with two tied games and as many abandoned, making it a healthy winning percentage of 65.11. India are yet to win an ICC trophy under Kohli but the team's series win under him in South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, England and West Indies will remain the highlights of his leadership tenure starting 2017:** India's first T20 bilateral series win came...

Harmilan Kaur Bains bolts out of parents’ shadow to break Sunita Rani’s 1500 metre record

Harmilan Kaur Bains felt like a weight had lifted off her shoulders when she broke the two-decade old national record in the 1,500 metres at the 60th National Open Athletics Championships in Warangal. “I can run freely now,” the 23-year-old said just after clocking 4:05.39 to erase Sunita Rani’s Busan Asian Games mark from 2002. Parental pressure has been a constant shadow for the daughter of two former athletes, one an Asian Games medal winner. Father Amandeep Singh specialized in the 1,500 metres and mother Madhuri Singh is an Asian Games silver medalist in the 800 – incidentally from Busan. They would micro-manage her career. She ran both events and the constant advice and expectations had proven detrimental for the athlete earlier. This time Harmilan travelled on her own to Warangal...

Davis Cup: India expect Prajnesh to give lead

If India’s upcoming Davis Cup tie against Finland is to be a tough task, the draw on Thursday came out in favour of the visitors. This is the first time India will play in the World Group 1, after the format was changed in 2020.
