Coach threatened me, said he wants me as wife: Cyclist complains to SAI

The complaint states that Sharma allegedly told the cyclist that he “wants” her “to be his wife”. When she resisted, the complaint alleges, the coach threatened to destroy her career by “removing her from the National Centre of Excellence (NCOE)”, and making sure she would “sell vegetables on the road”. According to the complaint, when the cyclist decided to quit the camp and return to India, Sharma called her family and asked them to get her married as she did not have a future in the sport. Sharma is still in Slovenia with the rest of the Indian team at the training camp for the Asian Championships this month, and is scheduled to return on June 14. He did not respond to calls and messages from The Indian Express seeking his response to the allegations. The coach has been involved wit...

After setting new mark, Sadanand Rajwar eyes new spikes

IMMEDIATELY AFTER he broke the youth national record in the 100 metres at the Khelo India Youth Games, Sadanand Rajwar pulled off his running spikes from his feet and threw them in the air. The spontaneous celebration was also Rajwar’s way of saying farewell to the well-used spikes. The 17-year-old from Chandol village in Hazaribagh district of Jharkhand had made plans to buy a new pair from the Sector 17 Plaza in Chandigarh. He hopes the prize money for clocking 10.63 seconds will cover the cost. “My coaches have been generous enough to give me international-standard sprint shoes. I always dreamt about owning my own pair. It costs about Rs 25,000. To create a new youth national record is a special feeling. I hope to improve further. The new shoes will definitely help,” Rajwar said. His...

Ranji Trophy 2022: Gharami’s 186, Anustup’s 117 and minister Tiwary’s 54 power Bengal to massive total

Sudip Gharami hogged the limelight for the second day running with a 186-run knock as Bengal reached 577 for five in their Ranji Trophy quarterfinal against Jharkhand on Tuesday. The seasoned Anustup Majumdar helped himself to a century (117) before Manoj Tiwary, a sitting minister for youth affairs and sports in West Bengal, walked back unbeaten on 54 at the end of second day’s play at the Just Cricket Academy Ground. Looking to accelerate the scoring rate, the 23-year-old Gharami’s stay in the middle ended with a contentious decision after which Bengal looked to nudge the ball around for ones and twos, rather than going for quick runs and declare their first innings. There were no signs of urgency from Bengal and it remains to be seen how long do they bat on the third day.Best of Expr...

How Kuldeep Yadav got back his fizz, smile, and love for wrist spin

“Agar aise daalna hai tho, main nahi dalwata hu tere se” (if you are going to bowl like this, then I am not going to bowl you), Rohit Sharma spat out from the slips this February. The new captain wasn’t too pleased that Kuldeep Yadav had resorted to firing his deliveries. That one moment, even if taken out of context, seemed to capture the Kuldeep story: low on confidence, shrinking of the big heart needed for a spinner, captains losing trust, and an atrophy of talent. But, luckily, the upturn was just around the bend. At the heart of Kuldeep’s revival story this IPL season—among other features like a faster arm speed, bolstered morale and a feeling of being loved—has been his reacquaintance with his old ally: the flight, the aerial suspension of the ball. Yadav burst forth with a punki...

Tiger Woods said on Tuesday he has decided to withdraw from next week's US Open outside Boston, citing a need for more time to get his body ready for major championship golf but still plans to play the British Open at St. Andrews in July.

Asian Cup qualifiers: Against lower-ranked opponents, Indian football team looks to break shackles

Long queues outside the Salt Lake Stadium for match tickets attested to Kolkata’s love for football. The All India Football Federation (AIFF) underestimated it by initially issuing only 12,000 complimentary tickets, assuming no more than 10,000 fans would turn up for India’s matches at the Asian Cup Group D qualifiers. They had to do the course correction after Sunil Chhetri’s comment that home advantage would be lost if stands remained empty. Now, as India begin their campaign against Cambodia on Wednesday, more than 50,000 fans are expected to be in attendance. Strong home support guarantees an electric atmosphere. But it doesn’t ensure success on the pitch. India under their head coach Igor Stimac have embraced a reactive, ultra-defensive style of late, especially after their 1-1 dra...

Umran Malik might have to wait for his debut, hints Rahul Dravid | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: India head coach Rahul Dravid has always maintained that he likes continuity and gave clear hints on Tuesday that pace sensation Umran Malik might have to wait for his turn. Dravid was speaking ahead of the first of five-match T20 International series between India and South Africa here on Thursday. "We just have to see how much playing time we will be able to give him. We have a big squad, not possible to have everyone in the playing XI," Dravid was categorical when asked about the 'Jammu Express'. "I am someone who likes consistency and give people time to settle in. Arshdeep has also done well, who is also an exciting player, who bowls well. "We have a little bit of experienced guys in Harshal, Buvi and Avesh, who played in the last series. It is exciting to have the young...

We know our top three’s quality and will give them lot of clarity: Dravid | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: The troika of skipper Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and the peerless Virat Kohli might have faced a lot of flak for their dated T20 batting approach but head coach Rahul Dravid understands their quality and expects them to give "good, positive starts" going into the World Cup. Rohit, Rahul and Kohli's approach in the powerplay overs during the last World T20 came under the scanner but Dravid gave clear hints that he is in no mood to tinker with the top three even though regular skipper and the team's No. 1 batter have been rested from the series against South Africa. "We know our top three's quality. They are top class. There will be a slightly different top three in this series but what we are looking for (in general) is a good positive start and playing according to the situation,...

ALUR (Karnataka): Uttar Pradesh bounced back after conceding a first innings lead against home favourites Karnataka as their Ranji Trophy quarterfinal hung in balance on a day 21 wickets tumbled on Tuesday. On a difficult KSCA pitch, left-arm orthodox spinner Saurabh Kumar (14-4-32-3) relied on his tight bowling to fox Karnataka, which collapsed to 100 for 8 after taking a healthy 98-run first innings lead.

Lewandowski looking for ‘more emotions’ than Bayern Munich can offer | Football News – Times of India

WARSAW: Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski revealed Tuesday he wants to call time on his career with the Bundesliga giants because of his desire for "more emotions in life". The Polish forward announced last week that his time with Bayern "had come to an end" without specifying his future plans. Asked Monday during a podcast on Polish website Onet.pl if his departure was dictated by a desire for more money or emotions in life, the 33-year-old answered without hesitation it was for him "emotions in life". "Firstly, something went out inside me and it's something you can't recover, can't make up for," he explained. Barcelona are reported to have made an offer of 32 million euros ($34 million) for Lewandowski, FIFA men's best player for 2020 and 2021, whose contract with Bayern expir...

Raducanu retires injured from Nottingham event ahead of Wimbledon | Tennis News – Times of India

US Open champion Emma Raducanu retired injured from her opening match at the WTA 250 event in Nottingham on Tuesday, casting doubt over her participation at Wimbledon. Britain's Raducanu retired while trailing 4-3 in the opening set against Switzerland's Viktorija Golubic, nearly half an hour into the match after she suffered what appeared to be an abdominal or rib injury. The 19-year-old, who has been without a full-time coach since April, shot to stardom last September when, as a qualifier, she won the US Open title, becoming Britain's first female Grand Slam champion since Virginia Wade in 1977. She has, however, struggled since winning her maiden Grand Slam and was eliminated in the second round of the French Open last month. Raducanu reached the last 16 at Wimbledon in 2021, but wi...
