India’s Thomas Cup-winning squad from 2022 gets to flaunt their prowess and fix the odd chink in their armour at the Badminton Asia Team Championships starting on Wednesday.At Shah Alam in Malaysia – where the men’s team stocked up on groceries shopping together, posed poolside donning funky glares and matching hotel towels for Instagram shots, and were flanked by a strong, united coaching staff – the successful team seemed happy. The legacy of that Thomas Cup, which India will defend this May, was also a bunch of elite shuttlers, confident of themselves and happy for their teammates. Satwiksairaj Rankireddy-Chirag Shetty, HS Prannoy, Lakshya Sen and K Srikanth are formidable names over a 3 singles-2 doubles format; but they are also fun-spreading folk in team situations.

Ranji Trophy | Thampi’s late burst gives Kerala first outright win of the season

Say cheese! Kerala team is a happy bunch after defeating Bengal. | Photo Credit: Special arrangement  A late shot of adrenaline by Basil Thampi gave Kerala its first win of the season in the Ranji Trophy cricket tournament at the St. Xavier’s College ground here on Monday. Banished to patrol the ropes for a major part of the day, Thampi was summoned by captain Sanju Samson to bowl only after tea. Chasing a mammoth target of 449, the Bengal lower-order, led by Shahbaz Ahmed frustrated Kerala in the post lunch session. The seventh-wicket stand between Shahbaz Ahmed (80) and Karan Lal (40) added 83 quick runs and treated the Kerala spinners with disdain which forced Samson to turn to his medium-pacer. Thampi responded in style by breaching the defence of Suraj Sindhu Jaiswal (13) and in t...

IND vs ENG: Why a more aggressive batting approach could benefit Ravindra Jadeja and India

“Ravindra Jadeja, lekin voh idhar nahi pada (but he didn’t study here)” the sentry at the gate of the famous The Rajkumar College in Rajkot, the alumni includes Ranjitsinghji, Duleepsinhji, Ajay Jadeja, five other Test cricketers and several first-class players, announces grandly about his favourite player in the Indian team. The sun has begun to sink, the college has just shut for the day, and the man who will guard nothingness in the nights perks up: “Voh humare jaisey hain. (He is like us).” Not from the clan of rajas and the royals who once dotted the college, that is. Jadeja, born in a one-room government flat to a nurse and a security guard, has risen in stature to being called ‘Bapu’, endearment for kings and mass leaders these days.
