Showpiece Delhi stadium lies unused as ground ‘sinks’ after track relaying project

FOR almost four years now, the iconic Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium here — listed as one of India’s five Class 1 facilities by World Athletics — hasn’t hosted any track-and-field event. The reason: “sinking” of the ground after a botched-up track relaying project. The project, for which the Sports Authority of India (SAI) had earmarked Rs 6.50 crore, began in the summer of 2019 and was expected to be completed by 2021. It was handed to WAPCOS [Water and Power Consultancy Services (India) Limited], a public sector enterprise under the Ministry of Jal Shakti. But, when the project was nearing completion in 2021, a section of the 400 metre track over an underground tunnel started caving in. The tunnel was built during the 2010 Commonwealth Games, and used for the opening and closing ceremonies...

Portugal advances to last 16, beats Uruguay 2-0 at World Cup

Cristiano Ronaldo wheeled away in celebration, acting as though he had scored yet another goal at the World Cup. Not this time. Instead, it was Bruno Fernandes eventually credited with the goal that set up Portugal’s 2-0 win over Uruguay on Monday, advancing the team into the last 16. Fernandes curled in a cross from the left that barely went over the head of the leaping Ronaldo and bounced into the far corner of the net in the 54th minute to give Portugal a 1-0 lead. A grinning Ronaldo threw his arms in the air, suggesting he got the final touch, and was embracing Fernandes as multiple close-up replays were being shown on the big screens in Lusail Stadium. Portugal join France and Brazil in the #FIFAWorldCup Round of 16. See match highlights on FIFA+👇 — FIFA World Cup (@FIFAWorldCup) ...

Protestor with rainbow flag runs onto field at World Cup

A protestor ran onto the field Monday carrying a rainbow flag and wearing a blue Superman T-shirt that said “SAVE UKRAINE” on the front and “RESPECT FOR IRANIAN WOMAN” on the back during a World Cup match between Portugal and Uruguay. Security officials chased the protestor down and the flag was dropped on the field before the person was escorted away. The referee then picked up the flag and left it on the sideline, where it stayed for a few moments before a worker came and collected it. The protestor was ushered away through a tunnel. It wasn’t immediately clear if the person faced any charges or had been detained by police. FIFA had no immediate comment on the incident.

How Cameroon’s Aboubacker evaded the off-side trap to score the most outrageous chip-scoop goal of the World Cup against Serbia

Cameroon’s Vincent Aboubakar who as a kid was a very good goalkeeper and who grew up to make goalies look like fools, has just scooped the ball. The shock is about to erupt in the face of Vanja, the tonsured-head and magnificently bearded Serbian goalkeeper. Between them, Nemanja Maksimovic, was sprawled on the ground on his back, about to twist his face behind to see Aboubakar’s trick shot. It’s a lovely photo from Reuters’ Marko Djurica perfectly capturing the artist and the men he had for breakfast. At that frame of action, all three also must have felt they knew the outcome – that it would be an offside even if the unthinkable happened. Aboubakar doesn’t even celebrate the most outrageous goal of the world cup. Maksimovic would get up and nonchalantly acknowledge the raised flag ...

Late Casemiro strike sends Brazil into last 16

Midfielder Casemiro showed his misfiring strikers how to finish on Monday when he lashed in an unstoppable late shot to give Brazil a 1-0 win over Switzerland that sent them into the World Cup knockout stage with a game to spare. A largely featureless game had been meandering towards a goalless draw when Casemiro struck seven minutes from time to take Brazil to six points at the top of Group G. The absence of injured striker Neymar had hung like a shadow over a shoddy Brazil, with only a disallowed goal by Vinicius Jr bringing their huge support to life before the goal. Brazil have six points, Switzerland three and Cameroon and Serbia, who drew 3-3 earlier on Monday, have one each – with all three teams still in the hunt to progress. !function(f,b,e,v,n,t,s) {if(f.fbq)retur...

Australia look to ace West Indies Test after T20 flop | Cricket News – Times of India

PERTH: Australia’s summer of cricket starts in earnest on Wednesday as the top-ranked Test side begin a two-match series against West Indies, albeit amid little fanfare after three months of continual white-ball matches across the country. An eighth-ranked opposition and midweek start are unlikely to help draw crowds to the 60,000-seat Perth Stadium, staging its first Test since 2019. But for the hosts it represents an opportunity to put behind them a failed home Twenty20 World Cup campaign in which they crashed out before the semi-finals. A slew of uneventful and unattended bilateral series bookended the popular T20 showpiece, which England won earlier this month, creating an unusual situation whereby the pinnacle of the Australian cricket season came and went before the summer had rea...

Maninder Singh, SS Das apply for Team India selector post | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Former left-arm spinner Maninder Singh and opener Shiv Sunder Das are among several candidates who have applied for the India senior selectors' posts. The deadline for the applications closed on Monday (November 28) and it is understood that more than 50 persons have applied for the job but there aren't too many heavyweights in the fray. Maninder (35 Tests) while Das (21 Tests) are the most experienced among the 50-plus candidates list. Back in 2021, Maninder had applied for the job but was pipped by Chetan Sharma. At the time, Sharma was preferred by the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) headed by Madan Lal. It couldn't be confirmed whether former pacer Ajit Agarkar has applied or not. According to many, Agarkar has a sure-shot chance of becoming selection committee chairman ...

Diplomatic tensions, terror threats, Osama Bin Laden, and master class in counterattack: As USA face Iran in the World Cup, remembering the ‘mother of all games’

Hank Steinbrecher was on a bullet train from Marseille to Paris when he got a call from the White House. “We are going to win this game, aren’t we?” the voice on the other side asked Steinbrecher, then US Soccer Federation’s general secretary. It was 1998. “The news is going around the world.” Mohammad Khakpour, too, received a call; not from a high-ranking government official but from the family members of those who had lost their children in the war between Iran and Iraq. “Fathers, mothers called and said this game really does matter to us,” the former Iran defender says in the BBC documentary, ‘The Great Game’. “You have to go and win this game for us.” On paper, it was merely a group-stage match of the World Cup between two teams that had lost their opening matches. But a meeting be...
