Badminton Worlds: Dhruv-Arjun prevail in thriller

Dhruv Kapila finally had had enough. All this year, he and partner MR Arjun had taken nice chunky leads in deciding games, only to falter at the crunch. A 15-10 advantage against Lee Jhe-Huei-Yang Po-Hsuan at the Thailand Open, 12-9 up against another Taiwanese pair, and a cat-and-mouse 13-11, 14-13, 17-16, 18-17, 19-18 leads in the third game against Ong Yew Sin-Teo Ee Yi at German Open, falling short on all occasions. The Indians, ranked No. 35, even ran the legendary Ahsan-Setiawan close at Singapore, after pushing a decider at the All England Championships. In all instances, they left the court disappointed. Playing their World Championship opener against No. 33- ranked Supak Jomkoh-Kittinupong Ketren of Thailand, Dhruv finally scoffed at the familiarity of their brain-fade that too...

BCCI asks state associations to postpone elections

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has asked all state associations to postpone their elections by two months. Out of 38 affiliated units, more than 25 are due to have elections in September. Post Lodha Committee’s recommendation, all state units conducted their election with a new constitution in September 2019. The reason for the BCCI diktat is the Supreme Court’s pending order over the Board’s plea to abolish the cooling-off period for its office-bearers. Treasurer Arun Dhumal had filed a petition in 2020 with proposed changes made to the new BCCI constitution, and last month, the Board had moved the apex Court, seeking direction on their plea to allow its president Sourav Ganguly and secretary Jay Shah to have another term despite completing six years. As per Lodha Co...

How Sailkot-born Sikandar Raza landed in Zimbabwe to become a cricketing star

Sikandar Raza doesn’t mind breaking into some chaste Urdu. If anything, he yearns to speak in his mother tongue, never letting go of an opportunity to do so. Back in 2013, he had became the first non-residential player to represent Zimbabwe in international cricket. That was the time, world cricket was witnessing the trend of Pakistani expats plying their trade in adopted lands, starting with Imran Tahir’s move to South Africa. But Raza’s was not the routine immigration story, laden with several obstacles and social challenges. His move to Zimbabwe came more via a touch of serendipity. Tasadaq Hussian Raza, Sikandar’s father, had moved to the African nation back in 2002 to expand his motor-parts business ambitions from Japan. The junior Raza, meanwhile, was busy preparing for a career i...
