English football player Jake Daniels says he is gay

English soccer player Jake Daniels said he is gay on Monday in a trailblazing moment for the European men’s game. The 17-year-old forward made the announcement at the end of his first season as a professional player with second division club Blackpool. “This season has been a fantastic one for me on the pitch,” he said in a statement. “But off the pitch I’ve been hiding the real me and who I really am. I’ve known my whole life that I’m gay, and I now feel that I’m ready to come out and be myself. “It’s a step into the unknown being one of the first footballers in this country to reveal my sexuality.” While women’s soccer features many prominent LGBTQ+ players, the men’s professional game lacks players who are publicly gay and has seemed to have even hostile attitudes in locker rooms.

Thomas Cup: How the vanquished reacted

India’s Thomas Cup victory sent some seismic waves through South-East Asian powerhouses and European big daddies of badminton. India can chuckle a tad and wink a bit this week, or have the proverbial last laugh. But there was a hint of a scoff and grudging respect as Malaysia, Denmark and Indonesia came to terms with being handed losses by the first-time finalists in the 2022 edition. Here are some snatches of the fallout that erupted in two proud shuttle nations from the straits, and the Scandinavian behemoth boasting of Olympic champ Viktor Axelsen. Taufik lets it rip Indonesian legend and universal favourite Taufik Hidayat, couldn’t hold back an almighty rant when he took to Instagram to post his thoughts under a video of a glum looking team clutching their silvers on the podium.

IPL 2022: Delhi Capitals late charge takes them to Top four

Shardul Thakur’s four strikes first brought Delhi Capitals back into the game and then cut short a late fightback by Punjab Kings to deliver a crucial 17-run win that took his team to fourth position on the table, with 14 points and the fourth-best net run-rate so far. Marsh carries DC again In DC’s previous match at the same ground four nights ago against Rajasthan Royals, Mitchell Marsh had powered seven sixes in a match-winning 89 off 62. That knock, though, had come in the chase with the ball coming on better than it had in the first innings. Against PK, Marsh had to come in the second ball of the match after David Warner’s golden duck. With a 6-3 field set to protect the shorter boundary, Marsh still took on the longer side when the bowling became too predictable, seeking to force ...

How DC’s win over Punjab Kings could mean end of the road for RCB

One playoff spot is officially taken by Gujarat Titans, who have 20 points from 13 games. The next two positions are Rajasthan Royals and Lucknow Super Giants’ to lose. In the final week of the IPL group phase, battle is intense for the one remaining place.

Wriddhiman back for Bengal’s Ranji QF vs Jharkhand, Shami’s participation subject to BCCI’s clearance

Three months after refusing to play for Bengal after his India career ended, veteran stumper Wriddhiman Saha has agreed to play for Bengal in the all-important Ranji Trophy quarter-final against Jharkhand in Bengaluru from June 6. The CAB also named speedster Mohammed Shami in the squad although his participation will depend on clearance from the BCCi and head coach Rahul Dravid taking his workload management into account. However it was 37-year-old Saha whose comeback headlined the Bengal squad after he had refused to play red ball cricket citing “personal reasons”. It was obvious that he was dejected after being told that he won’t be selected for India again. Saha has been in scintillating form in the IPL scoring 281 runs from eight matches with a strike rate of 123.24 with three scor...

MUMBAI: In another big blow to Kolkata Knight Riders' slender hopes of qualifying for the IPL 2022 playoffs, opener Ajinkya Rahane has been ruled out of the tournament ahead of their last league game on Wednesday against the Lucknow Super Giants due to a “bad hamstring injury.” Confirming the news, a source at the Knight Riders told TOI: “Yes, unfortunately (Rahane is out of the rest of IPL-15).

Nayeen takes 6-105, denies Mathews double century on Day 2

Offspinner Nayeem Hasan claimed a career-best 6-105 and denied Angelo Mathews a double century by one run before Bangladesh looked to respond against Sri Lanka on Day 2 of the first test on Monday. Sri Lanka was bowled out for 397 with Mathews the last batter out for 199. Bangladesh openers Tamim Iqbal and Mahmudul Hasan then batted fluently to end the day on 79 for no loss.

Tough times and passion to learn take Manisha to Boxing Worlds podium

As a youngster, Manisha Moun would accompany her elder brother to the volleyball ground at the RKSD College Stadium in Kaithal without telling dad Krishan Moun. While her father only knew about her practising judo at the venue apart from playing volleyball, Manisha would be training under boxing coach Rajinder Singh. It was around this time that Krishan suffered the first of his heart attacks and the farmer-cum-tractor mechanic had to worry about the medical expenses apart from the needs of his three children. Those tough times were recalled on Monday when 24-year-old Manisha secured her maiden world championship medal with a 4:1 split decision win over Mongolia’s Namuun Mankhor in the 57 Kg category at the IBA Women’s World Boxing Championship in Istanbul, Turkey. “Our family wanted Ma...
