Betting site seeks backdoor entry into India through surrogate ads

During key moments of the Asia Cup tournament that concluded on Sunday, the image of Yuvraj Singh — dressed in whites, pumping his fists, flashing a wide smile and holding a bat — would flash on the screens. The former India cricketer was, on paper, promoting a ‘professional sportsblog’, 1xBet. In reality, however, 1xBet is a controversial offshore betting website. The online bookmaker, banned in several countries, including Russia, where it was founded, had in 2019 been blacklisted by Britain’s Gambling Commission following an investigation by the Sunday Times that revealed that 1xBet’s “brand had been used to promote betting on children’s sports, cockfighting and a ‘pornhub’ casino with topless women dealing the cards”. The blacklisting had also led to top football clubs competing in ...

On a record-breaking day, 24-year-old Chandigarh swimmer Chahat Arora broke the women’s 100m breaststroke national record twice, first in heats and then in the final, to claim the gold medal in the 75th Senior National Swimming Championship in Guwahati on Saturday. Arora, who first broke the earlier national record of one minute and 14.87 seconds of Saloni Dalal set in Thiruvananthapuram in 2018 with a timing of one minute and 14.38 seconds in the 100m breaststroke heats on Sunday, won the gold medal by bettering her new national record with a timing of one minute and 13.61 seconds on Sunday evening.

Sri Lanka beat Pakistan in Asia Cup final to complete fairytale

Sri Lanka waited until it was all over, until the fireworks shot into the sky and until the golden confetti sparkled in their hair. A victory was ensured off the second ball of the last over, practically even before, at the fall of Mohammad Rizwan, but they waited until the last ball was bowled, stifling their excitement and joy. At that moment, the exact moment when Sri Lanka beat Pakistan by 23 runs to lift their sixth Asia Cup, half a dozen players clambered into the stands to take flags from the crowd, sprinted around the stadium, waving them in glee. Up high, the coaching staff were cutting loose — leaping to their feet, punching the air. The players released all their emotions, came rushing out in waves and danced and ran in circles, pulsing with adrenaline. They ran like childre...

Once deemed unfit, Rajapaksa gives fitting reply with the bat

The last ten months have been frantic for Bhanuka Rajapaksa. He retired in January after he was dropped on fitness grounds. His expulsion became a national debate, was raised in the parliament and a probe ordered, then he was talked out of retirement and had the self-realisation to shed some of his weight. He became a father, made runs in the IPL, made statements against the government during the crisis and reeled out a knock of utmost calm and grace under pressure. But for his popularity among the team’s fans, as well as the undoubted talent in fluid stroke-making, he would have long retired and been a cautionary tale of those taking fitness lightly. Rajapaksa himself realised the significance of fitness. Never fond of gym work, he took long sprints on his neighbourhood beaches and the...

Own goal sends Union Berlin to top of Bundesliga | Football News – Times of India

COLOGNE (Germany): Union Berlin moved to the top of the Bundesliga standings for the first time in the German club's history after they came away from Cologne with a 1-0 win on Sunday thanks to an own goal early in the game. In a whirlwind opening to the match, Union were fortunate to take the lead in the third minute when Cologne defender Timo Huebers's attempted block on a low cross was deflected past his goalkeeper at the near post. Cologne were unlucky to concede a penalty five minutes later when a header came off the back of Luca Kilian's elbow but goalkeeper Marvin Schwaebe saved Jordan Siebatcheu's tame spot kick to deny Union a two-goal cushion. Union had their opportunities to double the lead, with Bundesliga top scorer Sheraldo Becker's smart finish from an acute angle ruled o...

Shadab Khan-Asif Ali head-on collision leads to blunder on-field during Asia Cup final

Pakistan fielders had a day to forget on Sunday against Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup final when they dropped some relatively easy chances, leading to Sri Lanka getting to 170/6 in 20 overs. Bhanuka Rajapaksa who was the architect in chief behind rebuilding Sri Lanka’s innings after they had lost 5 wickets before even getting to 100, was dropped twice. In the first incident, Shadab Khan dropped a dolly and in the second, Asif Ali and Shadab collided with each other in a comedy of errors which led to the ball going over the boundary for a six. In the 19th over, Mohammad Hasnain bowled an off-cutter and Rajapaksa swung it towards deep mid-wicket. The two fielders in the deep went for the same ball but Shadab collided with Ali who eventually parries it over the fence as Sri Lanka added six run...

Real Madrid continue perfect start with 4-1 win over Mallorca | Football News – Times of India

MADRID: Real Madrid came from behind to beat Mallorca 4-1 at the Bernabeu in La Liga on Sunday and continue their perfect start to the season. A solo effort from Federico Valverde on the stroke of halftime levelled the scores after Vedat Muqiri had stunned the home crowd by nodding the visitors ahead. Vinicius put the hosts in front before Rodrygo and Antonio Rudiger completed the rout. A much-changed Real initially struggled to gain a foothold and sorely missed injured talisman Karim Benzema in attack throughout a below-par first half. Muqiri, who was denied by Thibaut Courtois inside the opening 40 seconds, headed in unmarked at the back post after 35 minutes and it appeared the champions would go in trailing at the break for the first time this campaign. That changed, however, in add...
