Sagar Dangi turned out to be the star for India, bagging gold and silver in the junior men’s 10m Air Pistol team and individual events at the ISSF World Championship Rifle/Pistol.

Chia-Soh go flat out, blow away Satwik-Chirag in Denmark Open quarters

The Malaysians shot straight arrows and gave Indians Satwiksairaj Rankireddy – Chirag Shetty, no angles to work with. While Shetty’s nervousness and Satwik’s disoriented defense might seem the most obvious maladies daunting the Indians on the face of it, it is the high quality of tactical play by Malaysian world champions, Aaron Chia and Soh Wooi Yik, that pinned the Indians 21-16, 21-19 in the Denmark Open quarters. If coach Mathias Boe’s mid-match shredding was to go by, Shetty got pinned literally, dodging and winceing every time the shuttle went to him. His service then imploded, as high serve errors were called. The chair umpire – who was uniformly exacting on all four players – ended up triggering a cascade of errors from the tall, fidgeting, self-conscious Shetty, compounding mat...

Stopping England’s Jos Buttler could be key for Afghanistan

England are without Jonny Bairstow, Jason Roy and more recently Reece Topley, all out because of injuries but have shored up the team with the additions such as Alex Hales, Ben Stokes, Sam Curran and Phil Salt. Afghanistan, interestingly are coached by former England batsman Jonathan Trott. Where will the match be decided? New ball face-off: Jos Buttler vs Fazalhaq FarooqiJos Buttler was phenomenal in the Indian Premier League — 863 runs that include four centuries in 17 innings at a strike rate almost touching 150. Stopping him won’t be easy but Afghanistan will hope their leading wicket-taker (17 wickets in 13 games) this year, left-arm quick Fazalhaq Farooqi, can get the big fish.

Argentina fear no one at World Cup, says Lionel Messi

Lionel Messi says Argentina to not fear any team at the World Cup but he urged fans to stay calm with the tournament in Qatar less than a month away. Copa America champions Argentina, unbeaten in 35 games since 2019, were drawn with Saudi Arabia, Mexico and Poland in Group C as they look to win their first World Cup title since 1986. “Today we are doing well and people are excited and think that we will come back with the Cup, but it is not like that,” Argentina captain Messi told broadcaster Directv Sports. “The World Cup is very difficult, many things have to happen (to win it), not only that we are doing well, many things that can leave you out and there are many teams that want the same as us and that are doing well. “We are eager, we are going to fight, we are not afraid of anyone ...

Hotels overbooked, ticket touts on prowl as all eyes in Melbourne on India-Pak Sunday

“HOW IS it possible for tickets to be sold out in just 10 minutes?” a local Melbourne Radio host wonders. A more rhetorical query wouldn’t have possibly crackled over Melbourne’s airwaves in recent times. This is a city that regularly hosts the Aussie Open Grand Slam and the Boxing Day Test. It has also witnessed the ODI World Cup finals. But still, Melbourne was surprised by the speed at which tickets for Sunday’s World T20 game between India and Pakistan got snapped up online. “After so many years, India and Pakistan will play in Melbourne. The last time they played against each other here was in the 1980s. There is a big buzz and everyone is looking forward to this Sunday. It will be a big carnival for the expats here,” says Jaspreet Manku, a fan who hopes to catch the action. The la...

T20 World Cup: Suryakumar Yadav’s wife says lifestyle changes helped him become a T20 phenomenon

Devisha Shetty had watched Suryakumar Yadav woo cricket, while living it up in his 20s, like most youngsters of that age do. In 2018, Devisha, his wife of five years who’s known him for a decade, watched him finally commit to the game, shrugging off his wild days. The new rising of the sun that Indian cricket is witnessing, and which might reach phenom international star proportions, was the flame Devisha watched grow into the Surya blaze of now. “You tend to enjoy life more in your early 20s, all of that comes in. But then things changed a bit, he started taking everything a little more seriously; 2018 was a great year batting-wise for Mumbai Indians,” says Devisha of the gradual transformation. It wasn’t as if he was not focussed earlier on the ultimate goal: playing for India. But si...

Trans-Tasman rivalry: A battle between the favourites and underdogs

Let’s start with a stat: since 2011, New Zealand hasn’t defeated Australia in a game in Australia. In any format. Ross Taylor was the captain then in a victorious Test. Since then Brendon McCullum and Kane Williamson have reached out their hands in hope but only grasped thin air. Will Williamson get luckier this time? Where will the match be decided? Injuries for starters The selection dilemma will be key as both teams have fitness concerns. New Zealand is likely to miss Daryl Mitchell, one of their heroes from the last year’s world cup, while the pace duo of Lockie Ferguson and Adam Milne are also making a comeback from injuries. Australia have already lost Josh Inglis to a freak golf injury and has taken a risk by not adding a backup for Matthew Wade, instead, they have picked the in...

T20 World Cup: Rain may lead to curtailed India-Pakistan match | Cricket News – Times of India

MELBOURNE: The much awaited marquee clash between India and Pakistan may have an anti-climactic end as 'rain gods' threaten to play spoilsport during the Super 12 clash of the T20 World Cup on Sunday. According to the local Met department, there is an 80 to 90 percent chance of rainfall, volume of which could be between 1mm to 5 mm. There is also a prediction of thunderstorm, which is, however, a lowly 13 per cent. On Friday evening, there was a sharp spell of showers in Melbourne and something like this on Sunday could spell doom for the cricket fans. However, the locals, who have a fair idea about change of weather, are confident that even if the heavens open up, there could still be a curtailed match. The MCG is expected to be full of at least 85 to 90 per cent Indian fans and a no-m...

India’s results in FIFA Women’s U-17 World Cup ‘not too good’, admits AIFF president Kalyan Chaubey | Football News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: All India Football Federation (AIFF) president Kalyan Chaubey has admitted that India's performance in the ongoing U-17 FIFA Women's World Cup "have not been too good" but said the experience of playing at the showpiece will help in the development of the team. Debutants India lost all their three group matches -- against USA, Morocco and Brazil -- and conceded 16 goals to get eliminated from the tournament.
