Magnus Carlsen vs Hans Hiemann: Endgame of the Avenger or chess’s reality show?

Hans Niemann was never the stereotypical teenage chess Grandmaster. Modest, introverted – that’s not him. At 19, the frighteningly-talented American was outrageously outspoken, unapologetically boastful and audaciously irreverent. He seemed in a tearing hurry to climb the sport’s rating chart – the Elo pyramid – that had the game’s unquestionable GOAT, 31-year-old Norwegian Magnus Carlsen, at the top. Playing around Europe for most of this year, the journeyman had an unreal meteoric rise. Keeping his distance from the other travelling US kids, the self-made maverick had the unsettling aura of a lone-wolf about him. His uncombed hair and dreamy eyes went well with his rebellious image. He was an outlier, the kind who makes the powerful doubt their invincibility. In March this year, on th...

‘Give me any injection … what if this was a WC final?’: Suryakumar Yadav reveals late night conversation with physio before IND vs AUS series decider

Suryakumar Yadav’s rapid half-century led India to a six-wicket win over Australia with one ball remaining in their Twenty20 decider for a 2-1 series victory. However, in a post-match chat with spinner Axar Patel, Suryakumar revealed that he had to battle a stomach ache and fever in the night before the game as the medical team worked furiously to get him fit before the series-decider at Hyderabad. It was Axar who recalled how he was woken up in the wee hours of Sunday morning by a commotion near the physio room and was informed that Suryakumar was being treated after complaints of stomach ache and fever. “Actually, you (Axar) were also facing this problem. I got to know this during the team meeting,” Suryakumar was quoted as saying in a video posted by BCCI on their official website. “...

Sunil Chhetri’s India brace for tough test against Vietnam in football friendly

In 2010, a few events were simultaneously taking place in Vietnamese football. They had just been beaten 3-1 by an Indian team that had Sunil Chhetri as their striker. Their football association was going through elections and candidates were offering attractive cash prizes to players for winning regional tournaments. The Vietnamese chair at that time, Nguyen Trong Hy, suggested that the country should begin naturalizing players from different parts of the world – an argument that continues to be made for Indian football today, albeit for Indian-origin players. Cut to 12 years later. Vietnam has made it to the quarterfinals of the AFC Asian Cup. The senior team is perfectly placed to make it to the 2026 World Cup where Asian countries will have 8.5 quota spots (eight direct qualifiers a...

Kate Cross wants ‘wishy-washy’ run-out rules to be made clearer

England seamer Kate Cross wants the “wishy-washy” rules regarding the run-out for backing too far at non-striker’s end to be made clearer following the controversial dismissal of Charlie Dean in the final ODI at Lord’s. India pulled off a win against England on Saturday after all-rounder Deepti Sharma ran out Dean (47) for backing too far at the non-striker’s end, reigniting an intense debate over the spirit of the game. Dean was out of her ground, and Deepti simply held the ball to remove the bails, leaving the English team flabbergasted. “What I think has come of it, which happens a lot in these scenarios when there’s a big thing to talk about, is that the rules aren’t quite written correctly to make it clear,” Cross told the BBC’s No Balls podcast. “I think what needs to happen is th...

Nations League: Spain’s seeks elusive win in Portugal

Coach Luis Enrique tried to stay optimistic about Spain’s chances of advancing in the Nations League following a disappointing home loss to Switzerland. After all, La Roja can still secure a spot in the Final Four with a win in Portugal on Tuesday. “It’s a final and we will go there to try to win it,” Luis Enrique said after the 2-1 loss to Switzerland at the weekend, which dropped Spain from first to second in Group A2 ahead of the decisive match in Braga. But beating Portugal isn’t something Spain has been able to do recently. The Iberian neighbors have drawn their last four matches, and Spain has not won at Portugal in nearly two decades. Its last victory against Portugal came in a penalty shootout in the semifinals of the 2012 European Championship, and before that it won in the rou...

Bat dominated ball in the series, so death-overs is really not a concern: McDonald | Cricket News – Times of India

HYDERABAD: Left-arm spinner Axar Patel came in for praise from none other than Australia coach Andrew McDonald. Axar, who was brought in as a replacement for Ravindra Jadeja, had an impressive series and ended up as the leading wicket-taker with eight scalps to his credit. He was head and shoulders above all the bowlers from both sides. "Axar, in particular, had an outstanding series. With Jaddu out everyone thought that it might become a bit of a weakness for India, but they've found another one again, which tends to happen," McDonald said on Sunday night. The Australian attack suffered at the hands of the Indian batters and was a concern for the team going into the World Cup. "Across the series the run rate was high, it was entertaining cricket from the get-go. Bat dominated the ball,...
