Asian Games in Sept, China looks at strict ‘closed-loop’ Covid curbs

IF THE Tokyo Olympics presented athletes with the unique challenges of living and competing in a bio-bubble, this year’s Asian Games in the Chinese city of Hangzhou will likely be more of the same, perhaps even tougher. In a busy second half of the year, India’s athletes will criss-cross the world, taking part in various World Cups, World Championships, Commonwealth Games and the Asiad. But after two years of pandemic-forced restrictions, while most events, including the Birmingham CWG, are likely to be less conditional, the Asian Games, scheduled to be held from September 10-25, could be an exception. Amidst reports of a possible postponement, the Games’ organisers are pressing ahead with the preparations and have put plans in place for a strict “closed-loop” system, similar to the one...

GT vs PBKS: Fed to the Gills, Liam ‘Filler-a-Miller’ Livingstone & Bowler, the boulder

Shubman Gill wasn’t happy, but it felt like not owning up his mistake. Gill misjudged the single, after pushing a Sandeep Sharma delivery towards extra cover. To start with, he timed the ball a little too well and it travelled quickly to Rishi Dhawan. Gill set off as soon as he hit the ball and maybe, he was confident to take on Dhawan’s arm. The batsman had to get around Sharma who was completing his follow-through. Dhawan broke the stumps with a direct hit and Gill was well short. It didn’t even need the third umpire. But Gill thought that Sharma got in the way and seemingly took umbrage. Not a fair call that. The bowler wasn’t guilty and Gill searching for an excuse attested frustration. WICKET! Shubman Gill is run out for 9 runs.#GT lose their first. Live – https://t.co/LcfJL3lO5i...

IPL 2022: Batting first doesn’t pay for GT

Gujarat Titans suffered only their second loss of the season as their batsmen failed when their captain asked them to set a target instead of their preferred chasing mode. Sai Sudharsan’s 65 carried them only as far as 143/8 after Kagiso Rabada’s four strikes, and Shikhar Dhawan anchored a straightforward Punjab Kings chase which ended early with some fireworks from Liam Livingstone. GT’s DY woes The table-toppers have been tested the most at DY Patil Stadium this season. Their only loss heading into Tuesday night’s match had come here – against Sunrisers Hyderabad by eight wickets. They’ve either chosen to bat first or been asked to set a target in all their four matches at the ground. But they have clearly preferred chasing, as evidenced by a season’s death-overs run rate of 13.04 bat...

How Indian football can make the best of Kerala’s Santosh Trophy win

Abandoned by his parents, Bibin Ajayan grew up at a foster home in Aluva, Kochi. He picked up football there, got spotted by local coaches, moved to Bokaro where he polished his skills and returned to Kochi to play in the Kerala Premier League for Golden Threads, a football club that eventually became his home. Quite literally, given that he lives at the club’s hostel and, occasionally, slept inside their office. Ajayan’s teammate, Jesin TK, by his own admission, hadn’t played even a district-level match before being thrust onto the national scene by Bino George, the ingenious Kerala coach. The duo’s state team captain, Jijo Joseph, made football his life from an early age. But when he isn’t playing, the charismatic midfielder works as a clerk with the State Bank of India.
