No biryani, no family time or festivals, and hard work: How Jyothi cracked a 20-year-old record

When Jyothi Yarraji first ran below the 100m hurdles national record timing of 13.38s at the 2020 Inter-University Athletics Championships, her blazing 13.03s run wasn’t ratified as NADA (National Anti-Doping Agency) officials weren’t present at the competition. The Andhra Pradesh athlete brushed it off and returned to clock 13.08s at the Fed Cup in Kozhikode last month. But she was denied a national record again as the wind reading was 2.1 m/s – just 0.1m/s over the permissible level to be considered for World and national marks. This time, Jyothi was distraught and broke down as she met her coach after the race. On Wednesday, the 22-year-old finally rewrote the 20-year-old national mark set by Anuradha Biswal in 2002 with a 13.23s gold-winning effort at the Cyprus International Meet. ...

Seamers rein in RR batsmen before Marsh takes charge to keep DC afloat in playoffs race

With pitches tiring in the Indian Premier League, it has become a bit tricky to decide what to do at the toss. But Delhi Capitals’ call to chase on a dry surface proved to be the right one as they restricted Rajasthan Royals to 160 for 6. Mitchell Marsh then made good use of more favourable batting conditions in the chase to bludgeon up a big win with 11 deliveries and eight wickets to spare. Sakariya sees off Buttler In the season’s first meeting between these sides, Jos Buttler had lit up Wankhede Stadium with an unbeaten 116 off 65 deliveries, nine of which went for sixes. There would be just six sixes in the entire RR innings in the return match at DY Patil Stadium, and none of those were to be from Buttler’s bat, as Chetan Sakariya sent him back in the third over itself. Sakariya d...

For Federer, Woods, Kohli, loss of form doesn’t mean loss of income

If an elite sportsperson has a stirring body of work and an image that moves the needle – as marketing gurus would put it – it hardly matters if their skills have faded a shade. The 2022 Sportico list of the Top 100 Highest-Paid Athletes in the World is a who’s who of sporting greatness over the last couple of decades, but even if some of them may be at the fag end of their time at the very summit of their pursuits, it doesn’t reflect in their earnings. Someone like Virat Kohli – the sole cricketer in the list – may be struggling for runs, but that hasn’t made him a lesser star with earnings of $33.9 million (including $31m in endorsements) putting him in joint 61st spot.   The top 10 in the list features usual suspects like Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Roger Federer and Tiger W...

Rift rumours culled, CSK CEO says Ravindra Jadeja released ‘on medical advice’

Chennai Super Kings have released Ravindra Jadeja, with the all-rounder heading back home. The franchise CEO Kasi Viswanathan told The Indian Express that this was done purely “on medical advice” after a rib injury ruled Jadeja out of the rest of the IPL. CSK, on eight points, still have three group league matches remaining in the tournament. On Wednesday, CSK’s Instagram handle reportedly unfollowed Jadeja, sparking rumours of a rift, that all is not well between the player and the franchise. Jadeja relinquished CSK captaincy mid-season after his team made a poor start to the tournament. Viswanathan, however, insisted that there was no fallout. “Social media, I absolutely do not follow anything. I have no knowledge of what is going on there. What I can tell you is that from the managem...

India handed reality check by ATK Mohun Bagan, lose 1-2 despite Sunil Chhetri strike | Football News – Times of India

KOLKATA: The Talismanic Sunil Chhetri returned to action with a delightful strike but it was not enough as India went down 1-2 to Indian Super League side ATK Mohun Bagan in a practice match at the Salt Lake Stadium on Wednesday. Returning to action after a seven-month injury layoff, the 37-year-old India captain was in his element as he utilised a Glan Martins cross to give India a perfect start. But the Indian backline -- minus star centre forward Sandesh Jhingan and the dependable Pritam Kota who played for ATK Mohun Bagan -- crumbled soon after with Liston Colaco and rising youngster Kiyan Nassiri scoring a goal each in the space of seven minutes. It was a rude reality check for the Igor Stimac-coached side that started as overwhelming favourites in the 2023 Asian Cup qualifiers. Th...

Ravindra Jadeja ruled out of remainder of IPL 2022, goes home with rib injury | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Senior India and Chennai Super Kings all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja was on Wednesday ruled out of the remainder of the IPL due to a rib injury, days after quitting the leadership role. "Ravindra Jadeja won't be playing CSK's next two games as he has suffered a rib cage injury. He has already gone home," CSK CEO Kasi Viswanathan told PTI. Jadeja apparently didn't play the match against Delhi Capitals due to an upper body injury, sustained during an earlier match against the RCB. Jadeja, who captained CSK in the first eight games, had a forgettable season as all he could manage was just 116 runs at an average of 20 in 10 games and only five wickets at an economy rate of 7.51. While the official reason being given for Jadeja's unavailability is injury, sources tracking developments...

IPL 2022 – ‘Nothing wrong in losing but everything wrong in giving up’: Gambhir tells LSG players | Cricket News – Times of India

MUMBAI: A visibly upset Lucknow Super Giants mentor Gautam Gambhir minced no words while reminding his team that abject surrender in a tournament like the IPL is not an option. Gambhir was upset after LSG were all out for 82 while chasing a modest target of 144 against Gujarat Titans. A win would have assured them a place in the play-offs, although they are still within a touching distance of a top-four finish. "There's nothing wrong in losing. One team has to win and one team has to lose. But there is a lot wrong in giving up. Today I thought we gave up and we were weak," a sombre looking Gambhir was seen addressing the players in a dressing room video uploaded by the franchise on Instagram.

NEW DELHI: Enduring a lean patch, a jaded Virat Kohli, in all likelihood, will be rested for the upcoming five-match Twenty20 series against South Africa. The break is expected to help Kohli recharge his batteries before the high-profile England tour.

Rafael Nadal negates Isner’s power to advance in Rome

Defending champion Rafa Nadal began his Italian Open campaign with an emphatic 6-3 6-1 victory over big-serving American John Isner to move into the last-16 on Wednesday. Nadal, who returned from a rib injury this month and fell at the quarter-final hurdle in Madrid last week, dominated Isner who struggled to find answers once the Spaniard, seeking his 11th title at Rome’s Foro Italico, hit his stride. Isner leads the ATP Tour with over 450 aces in 2022 but Nadal negated the American’s booming serve by receiving from well behind the baseline — even on his second serve — breaking four times and restricting him to just one ace in the match. The match went with serve in the opening set and Isner squandered two break points at 3-3, before Nadal stepped up his game and broke in the next game...

Nadal eases past Isner into Rome last 16 | Tennis News – Times of India

ROME: Rafael Nadal eased into the last 16 of the Italian Open on Wednesday with a straightforward 6-3, 6-1 win over John Isner, while Alexander Zverev beat Sebastian Baez. Third seed Nadal made short work of Isner as he bids for an 11th title in Rome, the King of Clay seeing off his American opponent in one hour and 17 minutes under blazing sunshine at the Foro Italico. A quarter-final loser to countryman Carlos Alcaraz in Madrid, Nadal can profit from the thrilling teenager's absence in the Italian capital to win the last big clay event before the French Open later this month.
