Ahead of Worlds, Javelin champ Neeraj Chopra hopes to work towards Tokyo magic in much-awaited return

For javelin throwers participating at the Paavo Nurmi Games in Turku, Finland, there’s always an added incentive. Breaking the Finnish national record at the spiritual home of javelin throw entitles one to a major bonus. Four years ago, throwers who went past 93.09 metres were promised the title deed to an island. This wasn’t a prank. This year’s incentive will appeal to Olympic gold medallist Neeraj Chopra. The owner of a second-hand Ford Mustang – he had rewarded himself with the American muscle car for making history in Tokyo – has been alerted about the eco-friendly electric option. A day before Chopra makes his much-anticipated return after the Olympics, organisers smartly tweeted: “Mr. First-Ever Indian Olympic Champion is in the house! Neeraj Chopra (@Neeraj_chopra1), it’s a plea...

Bigger coffers through IPL, higher pension to ex-players

On a day when the IPL media rights bidding war guaranteed nearly Rs 45,000 crore (and counting) to the BCCI coffers over the next five years, the cricket board turned to the country’s former cricketers and umpires, giving their monthly pensions a substantial hike. With effect from June 1, existing monthly pensions of Rs 15,000, Rs 22,500, Rs 30,000, Rs 37,500 and Rs 50,000 have been revised to Rs 30,000, Rs 45,000, Rs 52,500, Rs 60,000 and Rs 70,000. The BCCI confirmed this via a press release, as its president Sourav Ganguly said: “The players remain the lifeline and as a Board, it is our duty to be by their side once their playing days are over.” Secretary Jay Shah added: “The welfare of our cricketers, be it former and present, is a top priority, and increasing pension amounts is a s...

What India need to do to qualify for Asian Cup and where to watch

Sunil Chhetri-led India will take on Hong Kong in their final match of the AFC Asian Cup qualifiers at the Salt Lake Stadium in Kolkata on Tuesday. In the first match, Sunil Chhetri, returning from injury, pumped two goals past Cambodia for a 2-0 win and the start they needed. Then came Afghanistan. For 86 minutes, nothing could separate both teams. Then Chhetri did what he does – curling in a freekick from right outside the box into Afghanistan’s net. Two minutes later, India conceded from a corner. But then in extra time, Sahal Abdul Samad came up with a winner to help India make it two wins in two games. A win or a draw now brings the surety of making back-to-back Asian Cups – something that has not been done by the Indian team ever. This is what India need to do to qualify for the c...

None of Federer, Nadal, Djokovic in ATP top 2; 1st since ’03

None of the so-called Big Three of men’s tennis — Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic — was in the No. 1 or No. 2 spots in the ATP rankings on Monday, the first time that’s been the case in nearly 20 years. Daniil Medvedev rose one place to return to No. 1, where he briefly spent time earlier this season, and Alexander Zverev moved up to a career-best No. 2. Djokovic slid from No. 1 to No. 3, because his points for winning the French Open in 2021 dropped off his record on Monday. The ATP rankings are based on a player’s top 18 tournament results over the preceding 52 weeks (19 if he participated in the ATP Tour Finals). There was not nearly as much shifting in the WTA rankings on Monday, with Iga Swiatek remaining at No. 1. The only change in the women’s top 20 was Aryna Saba...

Requires courage when you are treated unfairly: Mithali Raj on feud with Ramesh Powar

Opening up on her feud with ex-India coach Ramesh Powar during the 2018 T20 World Cup, former India captain Mithali Raj revealed that she had to overcome a “moment of hurt, anger, frustration, and irritation” during the time. The 39-year old, who recently called it quits to a 23-year long illustrious career, was left out of the playing XI during the semi-final of the T20WC against England in the Caribbean. The call eventually led to Powar’s removal at the time. Looking back at the incident in a recent interview with India Today, Raj said, “When you find yourself in the middle of chaos, you can’t really think straight because you are feeling all sorts of emotions, even if you want to internalise and think from your brain and not from your heart.” “It would still be like you are hurting, ...

India look to plug the gaps in the third T20I against South Africa | Cricket News – Times of India

VISAKHAPATNAM: The selectors must have thought that resting a couple of key players wouldn’t make much of a difference to the prospects of the Indian team as the bench strength is quite good. Taking on the fourth ranked South Africa squad which lacks ‘star power’ was supposed to be a cake walk especially since most of the Indian players had a good outing in the recent IPL. India lost captain KL Rahul and spinner Kuldeep Yadav on the eve of the first game, but it still didn’t warrant a rethink. The selectors promptly elevated wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant and made Gujarat Titans’ successful skipper Hardik Pandya his deputy. At the Kotla, it looked like things were going according to script as the Indians put up a mammoth 212 on the board and had the South Africans in a spot of bother...
