Despite 0-5 record, Satwik-Chirag upbeat about Malaysian challenge

The reason why Indian badminton circles are buzzing with a whiff of a World title final this weekend, is how Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty have warmed up to Tokyo. The remarkable Indians, only just hitting their prime, have actually lost five times to Malaysian semifinal opponents Aaron Chia and Soh Wooi-Yik, without ever winning any match in return. But a combination of prevailing conditions – slow-ish shuttles and the Malaysians’ own demons associated with semifinals have led to the bubbling belief that Saturday could be the much-anticipated reversal. A turnaround where not only do Satwik-Chirag upturn the 0-5 head-to-head score, but also avenge their defeat in the team event at the Commonwealth Games. But also where Indian doubles itself takes off into the stratosphere, w...

From aggressive to intimidating: The Satwiksairaj Rankireddy-Chirag Shetty story

Making the reigning World Champions look pretty pedestrian playing at home when defending their title, would count as one of the lesser gloats for Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty after their sensational 24-22, 15-21, 21-14 victory over Japan’s Takuro Hoki – Yugo Kobayashi. Ensuring a first-ever Men’s Doubles World Medal for India, and importantly for themselves, is, of course, the bigger boast. Hoki-Kobayashi also had silver from the 2019 edition at Basel, and had emerged from the pandemic isolation in the 2021 season with four titles from five finals, plus the World’s gold. They didn’t make Japan’s contention for the Olympics, which the home shuttlers spectacularly botched, and had just the Malaysia title in 2022. But seeded second, and with a blitzy game with reliable defens...

Ton-up Ben Stokes and Ben Foakes add to South Africa’s agony in second Test | Cricket News – Times of India

MANCHESTER: Ben Stokes hit his first century since being appointed England's full-time captain and wicketkeeper Ben Foakes also reached three figures as the hosts established a commanding lead over South Africa in the second Test in Manchester on Friday. Stokes made 103, with Foakes a Test-best 113 not out after completing his second century at this level when his skipper declared England's first innings on 415-9, a lead of 264 runs, after South Africa had been dismissed for a meagre 151. That left World Test Championship leaders South Africa with a tricky nine overs to bat before the close of the second day at a sun-drenched Old Trafford. But the Proteas, 1-0 up in this three-match series after a dominant innings and 12-run win in the first Test at Lord's, got through to stumps on 23-0...

Elena Rybakina unhappy over Wimbledon rankings snub | Tennis News – Times of India

Elena Rybakina (AFP photo)NEW YORK: Elena Rybakina accused women's tennis of "weak" leadership on Friday for stripping Wimbledon of rankings points due to the championship's ban on players from Russia and Belarus. Rybakina realised a lifelong dream last month when she claimed a 3-6, 6-2, 6-2 victory over Ons Jabeur in the Wimbledon final to claim her first Grand Slam title. But speaking ahead of the US Open on Friday, Rybakina said she doesn't feel as if her career has benefited from the boost that would normally come with her Wimbledon crown. In normal circumstances, winning the prestigious grass-court showpiece would have catapulted the 23-year-old into the top 10, and comfortably on course for a place at the season-ending WTA Finals. Instead, Rybakina will start her campaign at Flush...

World class player like Virat Kohli isn’t affected by what people are saying: KL Rahul | Cricket News – Times of India

DUBAI: Just like skipper Rohit Sharma has stoutly defended all questions on Virat Kohli's prolonged bad patch, his deputy KL Rahul followed suit stating the obvious template answer, that it's all "noise on the outside". From being one of India's greatest batters of all time, Kohli's slump in form has given rise to a debate if his presence in the playing XI in T20Is is affecting the balance of the side. "We don't really give much importance to such comments. It doesn't really affect a player, especially a world-class player like Virat will not be affected by what people are saying (on the outside)," Rahul said, ditto of what Kohli used to say when something specifically critical used to be asked and current skipper Rohit does the same when questioned on his predecessor. "He has had a lit...

I can do it, I’m the right man for president’s post: Bhutia ahead of AIFF elections

Former captain Bhaichung Bhutia on Friday cited his “credibility”, “experience” and his equivalent in cricket, Sourav Ganguly, to hammer home the point that he is “definitely the right man” to lead the All India Football Federation (AIFF). Both Bhutia and Ganguly are iconic former captains of their respective sport and while the cricketer was born and brought up in Kolkata, the ace footballer shares a deep bond with the city, having spent so much time there while playing for Mohun Bagan and East Bengal in his heyday. Bhutia threw his hat into the AIFF election ring once again even as former goalkeeper Kalyan Chaubey, seen as the BJP candidate, has emerged as the front runner for the top job. Both the former players filed their nominations on Thursday. “Today what I’ve become is only be...

With revenge on his mind, KL Rahul ready to challenge himself | Cricket News – Times of India

DUBAI: KL Rahul is ready to "challenge himself" as a batter and pounce on a quality Pakistan side in India's Asia Cup opener in his bid to exact revenge of the humiliation suffered during the T20 World Cup last year. Rahul hasn't played any T20I in 2022 and will need to start as an opener with an attacking batting philosophy that the team has employed in recent times. "Every team wants to start an event like the World Cup with a win. Unfortunately, that did not happen for us last year. We were outplayed by a strong Pakistan team. So, it's a big opportunity (in Asia Cup) for us (to bounce back). It's a contest we are all looking forward to," vice-captain Rahul said in a press conference.
