Guests check in at swanky Games Village

first_imgThe Games Village, the heart of the upcoming Commonwealth Games in the Capital, had its soft launch on Thursday with organisers claiming that the facilities and ambience at the venue make it one of the best of its kind in the world.A bird’s eye view of the Commonwealth Games Village in New Delhi on Thursday.The Village will be home to more than 7,200 athletes and delegates for the duration of the Games. Some of the participating countries have already started sending their delegates, while the athletes will start arriving from September 23.The Village, situated on the banks of the Yamuna adjacent to the Akshardham temple, has 14 blocks, 34 towers and 1,168 fully-furnished air-conditioned flats, out of which 1,100 will be used to accommodate athletes and delegates.The flats have between two and five bedrooms, with two occupants per room.The Village also has facilities such as a shopping centre, saloon, a bank and two swimming pools too.”One of the pools will be used for leisure and the other, of standard international dimensions, will be for training purposes,” Organising Committee’s additional director general Ashok Kapur said.”The Village also has VIP lounges, a post office, plaza, bar and an informal dining area,” he said.In a first, competitors in four disciplines will be able to train at the Village itself without having to go to the competition venues.”Apart from the swimmers, weightlifters, wrestlers and athletes will be able to train at the Village itself,” Dalbir Singh, mayor of the Games Village, said.advertisement”This facility had not been provided at any previous Commonwealth Games,” Singh said, adding that the paralympic competitors in powerlifting can also train there.The training area for athletes includes an eight-lane track as well as a separate throwing area.There is also seating arrangement for 1,086 people.”In this way, the athletes will save valuable time that they would otherwise have spent travelling to and from the competition venues,” Singh said.In addition, there is a state-of-the-art gymnasium for the residents.”There are machines for weight training, cardio-workouts as well as stretching,” Cyrus Appoo, gymnasium supervisor, said.Some delegates have already started assembling in the Capital with representatives from England, Wales, Scotland, Australia and New Zealand already working on registration formalities.”There are certain basic facilities we provide to all residents. If they want something extra, we will provide them a ‘rate card’ which has pre-determined charges for various facilities,” Kapur said.The soft launch started with an inter-faith prayer where leaders from various religions wished the Games success.”The soft launch is designed to give us a feel about what is required by the time all the athletes arrive. Whatever is missing can be arranged in the next few days as only nuts and bolts need to be looked into,” Kapur said.Organising Committtee chairman Suresh Kalmadi said that there will be daily entertainment programmes in the evenings.last_img read more

Imran suggests fixing could be found in teams other than Pak

first_imgFormer Pakistan captain Imran Khan says it’s impossible to gauge the extent to which spot-fixing has spread worldwide and wants the International Cricket Council (ICC) to use innovative methods to investigate the whole issue and not limit it to only his country.The 1992 World Cup-winning captain feels that if it is proved that Pakistani players were actually involved in spot fixing in the series against England, they should be banned to set an example.”If what the News of The World [newspaper] has uncovered is spot fixing, then I am afraid it could be a lot more than what you could imagine because, clearly, it wasn’t the ICC investigations that uncovered these allegations. So, God knows how much of this goes on?” Imran told Headlines Today in an exclusive interview in New Delhi.”How can anyone tell whether someone has bowled no balls after being paid money or it’s an accident? In my opinion, there has to be a worldwide investigation into this because it could be widespread. It is impossible to detect. ICC has to come up with innovative ways of finding it out. If Pakistani players are involved, they must be punished,” he said.Asked specifically on allegations against some Pakistani players, Imran declined to jump the gun. “These are still allegations and a case is still going on.Natural justice demands that you are innocent until proven guilty. That’s why I am waiting for the verdict,” he averred.Kapil Dev, who led India to 1983 World Cup title, felt the ICC should properly channelise its resources to check corruption in the game. ” This World Cup [to be held in south Asia in February- April] will be very important for the ICC. It should play its role very carefully and very strongly. I personally would like to see Pakistan cricket come up. Whatever happened in the last six or eight months, we have pointed fingers on Pakistan,” he said.advertisement”But if ICC spends the right amount of time and money, these things can be sorted out. The authorities who are handling this and are deeply involved 24 hours [a day], they should see this as a challenge and say ‘ why things have landed up this far’. More important is that the ICC put together its heads and say, ‘we’ve to rectify everything with it’.” Arjuna Ranatunga, who captained Sri Lanka to an unexpected world title in 1996 and was part of the discussion, suggested that the ICC should involve former cricketers of integrity to assess the corruption in the game.”I personally feel that they [ICC’s Anti-Corruption and Security Unit sleuths] should go and see matches personally, ball by ball, and see what’s happening.The ACSU is run by top cops and they don’t know anything about cricket. You need to involve proper, honest cricketers to get them analyse these things,” he said.”When cricketers say something, they will probably mean that there’s something fishy. But a cop will maybe go and check their bank balances. You need to involve honest, proper cricketers who they [ match fixers] won’t be able to buy. That’s the easiest way to stop this [ malaise].” Imran felt that Pakistan is not just confronting spot fixing charges, but its entire cricket setup needs to be overhauled.”Unfortunately, it’s the way cricket is run. The president of the country appoints the cricket board chairman and that’s where things going wrong. The only qualification for the chairman is that the president likes him and he’s accountable to no one. Basically, it’s the ad hoc basis on which the team is run,” he said.”The moment the team loses, there’s pressure on the team. He [ board president] wants to do something … sacks the captain. We had five different captains in one year. You can’t have stability in the team if captains keep changing.” Asked if he was the right person to head the cricket board, Imran was sure his political opponents won’t let him clean the system. ” I know what the problems are in Pakistan. And I know if I am put in that position, I will not be able to function properly. I have political opponents in Pakistan and they would like to see me fail and would not let me succeed,” he said. Kapil was for Imran heading the board and even said Pakistan’s ” 80 per cent” problems would vanish if he was at the helm of cricketing affairs.Ranatunga disagreed and cited his own case to illustrate how politicians interfere in board’s working in the Indian subcontinent.advertisement”Imran can’t sort out PCB. I couldn’t sort out Sri Lankan cricket and I was there only for 11 months. I tried to stop corruption and I tried to set the cricket right and I was thrown out by a minister who was the most corrupt in the country,” he alleged.On Pakistan’s prospects at the World Cup, Imran felt that if pacers Mohammed Asif and Mohammed Amir are cleared of spot fixing charges, it would boost the team’s chances. ” If they play, Pakistan’s chances go up. They are outstanding. They are the sort of bowlers who will get early wickets. There are two ways of winning one-day matches – one is by containing runs, the other is by taking wickets. They can get wickets. That would give Pakistan a chance.”last_img read more

Chaos in garden of Eden due to officials’ sin

first_imgThe India-England WC match has been shifted as Eden Gardens couldn’t meet the ICC deadline.It was January 5, 1934, when Eden Gardens in Kolkata (then Calcutta) hosted its first test match which was between India and England. The then England team led by the legendary Douglas Jardine had put the people of Calcutta in embarrassment as India was out for 247 in the first innings, and was asked to follow-on.Fortunately, India could save its first game in Eden Gardens because of a brave halfcentury by Dilawar Hussain and 43 by opening batsman Naoomal Jaoomal in the second innings. It was the beginning of a new era of cricket in Kolkata, and Eden Gardens, the second-largest cricket stadium in the world, had become a place of pilgrimage for most cricketers as well as cricket-lovers.The picturesque ground is believed to have the most passionate and vocal cricket spectators. It is said that a cricketer’s cricketing education is not complete till he has played a game in front of a packed Eden Gardens.But, exactly 77 years after the historic test match, people of Kolkata have now again been subjected to humiliation in the Eden Gardens. The International Cricket Council ( ICC) has dropped the crucial India- England match, scheduled to be held on February 27 in Eden Gardens. Both India and England are favourites to win the ICC World Cup.The ICC officials found that the infrastructure in the Mecca of cricket in Asia is still not ready to host the crucial match on February 27. Repeated requests by the officials of Cricket Association of Bengal ( CAB) to the Board of Control for Cricket in India ( BCCI) and the ICC did not yield any consideration.The entire state of West Bengal has been embarrassed because of ICC’s decision. All the Kolkata- based newspapers carried headline stories on the issue, describing that the World Cup fever is totally lost in Bengal even before a single ball is bowled.All the satellite television channels too have been airing headlines and debates on the ICC’s decision to shift the India- England match. Some even alleged that ICC president Sharad Pawar, who is a minister in the United Progressive Alliance government, is desperate to project Eden Gardens in poor light because West Bengal is ruled by the Left Front.As West Bengal is poll- bound, common people are worried that the crucial India- England match in Kolkata should not be a victim of political one- upmanship.Fortunately, railway minister Mamata Banerjee, so far, has not made any attempt to politicise the Eden Gardens issue.Humiliated with the ICC decision, West Bengal chief minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee promised all possible help to the CAB to retain the crucial India- England match in Eden Gardens.He said it is a ” major setback” for the cricket- loving people of the state.Even sports minister Kanti Ganguly held meetings with CAB president Jagmohan Dalmiya to find out ways to retain the crucial tie in Kolkata, and put an end to the embarrassment to the state.Chuni Goswami, a great footballer, and former captain of the Bengal Ranji Trophy team said that the crisis over Eden Gardens was result of ” sheer lack of judgement”. He said the CAB should not have undertaken massive renovation works at the stadium.In recent times, Eden Gardens has not been getting international matches primarily because of CAB president Jagmohan Dalmiya’s hostility with BCCI honchos, including its president Shashank Manohar and ICC chief Sharad Pawar. The last oneday international here was played on December 24, 2009.Meanwhile, there has been strong demand by a section of the people to immediately remove CAB secretary Biswaroop Dey, and entrust former Team India captain Saurav Ganguly to handle the World Cup matches in Eden Gardens.In response to this demand, the chief minister has appointed the former India captain to liaison with Sharad Pawar for the World Cup preparations. Roads in several places in Kolkata were blocked by people in protest against the ICC decision.If ICC cancels the three other World Cup matches in Eden Garden, it would be the last nail in the coffin. In addition to the February 27 one- dayer, Eden Gardens is scheduled to host Ireland- Holland, South Africa- Ireland and Zimbabwe- Kenya matches.If the crucial India- England match is not held, will Kolkata be happy with the other matches? Can Eden Garden bail itself out of the crisis again?advertisementlast_img read more

Afridi is Irresponsible

first_imgZaheer AbbasI don’t see Pakistan winning this World Cup. It’s not at all a strong team. Pakistan have only two good batsmen-Younis Khan and Misbah-ul-Haq. If these two fail in a match, there is no one to navigate the team out of a crisis. Younis Khan is an experienced player and knows how to play according to the situation. Though he started playing cricket at the international level very late-at the age of 27-Misbah has been improving with every game. What has impressed me most is his effort to spend maximum time at the crease.Our bowling has obviously lost the sheen. The team can’t depend on Shoaib Akhtar as he is not 100 per cent fit. He is limping and can break down any moment. There is no immediate replacement for Akhtar. It’s heartening to see him taking wickets but the team clearly misses the services of Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir who have had to sit out of the tournament due to their involvement in the spot fixing scam. Umar Gul has to be consistent and Abdur Razzaq can be effective only on fast wickets. I would also want to see Razzaq bat ahead of captain Shahid Afridi. Razzaq has won us several matches coming at No.6.Misbah-ul-HaqThe team is winning under Afridi but only a crisis will expose how good he is as a captain. He should bat only during slog overs as he doesn’t take responsibility. He wants to hit every ball for a six and doesn’t play according to the situation. He is now too old to change his style, so he should come out to bat only in the last six or seven overs. He should learn from Indian captain M.S. Dhoni. Dhoni was a pinch-hitter earlier, but ever since he became captain, he doesn’t throw his wicket.The Pakistan team is also one of the worst fielding sides in the tournament. They have to improve in this department quickly. Only then can the team hope to reach, at least, the semi-finals.advertisementZaheer Abbas is a former batsman of Pakistan. He spoke to Kaushik Deka. PITCH REPORT”There is pressure if you win, pressure if you lose. I would have told you the exact figure if I had a machine to measure it.”M.S. Dhoni, Indian captainWords WorthJournalists have deleted Tony Greig ‘s number from their phonebooks. The 6´´6´- tall English commentator has sent a letter to ESPN Star Sports asking for more money if he has to express his “valuable” views on the World Cup. He has already been paid over Rs 20 lakh by the channel for his services as a commentator. “If I have to open my mouth except for eating, you will have to pay for it,” Greig wrote.The SoothsayerAhead of the India vs England match at Bangalore on February 27, Shane Warne predicted on Twitter that the game would be a tie. Since then bookies across the globe are trying to get his number on speed dial. “Before you think there was something untoward regarding the prediction of a tie, I thought it was going to be a cracker-it was tongue-in-cheek, but right,” he tweeted again.

London Olympics: Saina Nehwal wins against Sabrina Jaquet in badminton opener

first_imgIndia’s ace shuttler Saina Nehwal made a rousing start to her bid for an Olympic medal as she beat Swiss Sabrina Jaquet in straight games in women’s singles group stage opening match on Sunday. The world number five Saina was too good for the 65th ranked Sabrina as she took just 22 minutes to complete a 21-9 21-4 victory at the Wembley arena.Sabrina, who had qualified for the Games by reaching the quarter finals of the 2012 European Championship in Karlskrona, Sweden, could not provide any resistance to Saina, who launched her campaign on a dominating note.The 22-year-old Indian, who came into the tournament after winning the Thailand Grand Prix Gold and Indonesian Super Series Premium last month, took 12 minutes to wrap up the first game, before sealing the issue in her favour by winning the second game in just 10 minutes.Such was the domination of the Indian that Sabrina was reduced to a bystander as the Indian kept lapping up her points in quick succession. The girl from Hyderabad led by a massive 12 and 17 points in the first and second game respectively.Saina, who had reached the quarterfinals in her Olympic debut at the Beijing Games four years ago, will take on Lianne Tan of Belgium in another group E match on Monday.last_img read more

Maria Sharapova storms into 3rd consecutive French Open final

first_imgMaria Sharapova defeated Eugenie Bouchard 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 in the semis on ThursdayMaria Sharapova made it back into the French Open final for the third straight year, beating Eugenie Bouchard of Canada 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 Thursday.The seventh-seeded Russian lost the first set for the third straight match, but again managed to turn things around. Sharapova won eight of the last 10 games, and has now won 19 straight three-set matches on clay.Sharapova completed a career Grand Slam by winning the title at Roland Garros in 2012, but lost to Serena Williams in last year’s final.Bouchard, a 20-year-old Canadian seeded 18th at Roland Garros, was playing at the French Open for the only second time. Last year, she lost to Sharapova in the second round.In the other semifinal match, fourth-seeded Simona Halep of Romania will face 28th-seeded Andrea Petkovic of Germany.The final is on Saturday.Sharapova struggled a bit with her serve, double-faulting nine times and getting broken four times. But she made up for her shaky serving with solid groundstrokes, either going for winners or waiting out errors from Bouchard.Bouchard took the early lead with her first break in the third game of the match, smacking a forehand winner to give herself a 2-1 edge. She quickly made it 3-1 by completing a run of winning 12 of 17 points.The pair traded breaks early in the second set, and then again later. But Sharapova managed to stay ahead and broke Bouchard for the third time in the set to even the match at one set apiece.advertisementSharapova served first in the third set, and made her move in the fourth game, converting her third break point to take a 3-1 lead that she held onto until the end.Bouchard, who reached the Australian Open semifinals in January, saved four match points before Sharapova won it with a forehand that Bouchard missed on the other end.Sharapova won her first Grand Slam title 10 years ago at Wimbledon. She followed that with major titles at the U.S. Open in 2006 and the Australian Open in 2008. But since she recovered from having right shoulder surgery in 2008, she has vastly improved her clay-court game and has won six of her last eight titles on the red surface.This year, Sharapova has already won clay-court titles in Stuttgart and Rome, and her six wins so far at Roland Garros give her an 18-1 record on the dirt this season.And like against Bouchard, it’s been tough to beat her in three sets on the surface. The last time Sharapova lost a three-set match on clay was at Roland Garros in 2010, when Justine Henin beat her in the third round.last_img read more

Lakers end Anthony Davis talks over ‘outrageous’ demands

Ross misfired on a potential game-wining triple as time was running out.“Next time, we’ll have to stick to what our game plan is because we played their game tonight.

US faces greater challenges this time around at World Cup

first_imgDon’t miss out on the latest news and information. Two-day strike in Bicol fails to cripple transport Forward Christen Press said it’s this unity on and off the field that makes the United States a formidable team. “The World Cup is precious to us and we want to have all our focus there,” she said.Alex Morgan will lead the attack, flanked by Megan Rapinoe and Tobin Heath. Morgan, who broke out at the 2012 Olympics and is playing in her third World Cup, scored 18 goals in 19 games last year and was the team’s Player of the Year for 2018.A focus will no doubt be Alyssa Naeher, who has the daunting task of replacing Hope Solo in goal. Solo won the Golden Glove in Canada as the tournament’s best goalkeeper, allowing just three goals. But she was ultimately dismissed from the team following the 2016 Olympics.Naeher is known for her calm demeanor.“I’ve kind of found over the years that it’s best to just keep that even mindset, not too high and not too low,” she said. “There’s obviously a lot of defensive strategies and changes leading into a game, and within a game. The more that I can kind of just stay in the moment and kind of take it all in, the better position I’ll put myself in.”ADVERTISEMENT Helping Naeher will be a backline that includes veterans Becky Sauerbrunn and Kelley O’Hara, both playing in their third World Cup.In the Brazil Games, Sweden bunkered on defense and went on to advance to the semifinals, handing the U.S. its earliest exit in Olympic competition. Solo famously called the Swedes “cowards” for the tactic.But that game could provide something of a blueprint for how to beat the United States. Sweden was coached at the time by former U.S. coach Pia Sundhage, who knew the Americans well.Sundhage has since moved on, but the U.S. will again face Sweden in the final game of the group stage. Ellis joked before the draw in December that she fully expected to be grouped with Sweden — so of course it happened. It is the sixth time the two teams have been in the same group. Also in Group F are Thailand and Chile, which is making its World Cup debut.“I think that the emphasis is not to overload or add, it’s more about trusting what we’ve done and going in there and now just being able to focus on what’s exactly in front of us in terms of games,” Ellis said. “I think that sometimes coaches go to a playoff round or go into the postseason and suddenly what do you want to do — more and more and more — and I think the complete opposite actually.”The U.S. will open the tournament against Thailand in Reims on June 11. Sweden, ranked No. 9, will face the U.S. on June 20 in Le Havre — the final group match for both. The U.S. and the Swedes are expected to advance to the knockout round.The United States has won the World Cup three times since the women’s event was launched in 1991, more than any other national team.

Chronic maternal stress tied to dental cavities in kids

first_imgLondon, Sep 20 (PTI) Mothers who suffer from chronic stress are more likely to have children with a higher prevalence of dental cavities, a new study has found. Chronic stress was also found to be linked to lower probabilities of breast feeding and dental visits by children. Researchers analysed data from 716 maternal-child pairs in the US, with children aged two to six years and mothers who were on average 30 six years of age, taken from the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (1988?1994) in the US. Researchers from Kings College London and University of Washington found that dental cavities were more common among children whose mother had two or more biological markers of chronic stress, an incident known as allostatic load (AL), compared to no markers of AL (44.2 per cent vs 27.9 per cent respectively). Additional analysis tested the association between maternal AL and care-taking behaviours, such as breast feeding, dental visits, and eating breakfast daily. They identified that dental cavities were more common among children whose mother did not breastfeed them, than those who did: 62.9 per cent vs 37.1 per cent respectively. Mothers who had one and two or more markers of AL were significantly less likely to breastfeed than those with a normal AL level. The study also considered the role of socioeconomic status in the relationships. Several studies have established a persistent association between socioeconomic status (SES) – and dental cavities, but few have also evaluated one possible pathway – that of maternal stress. When SES was considered in the analysis, the significant relationship between AL and child cavities decreased; as expected considering the established relationships between SES and both maternal AL and child cavities. “Chronic maternal stress as a potential risk factor is something we need to consider, in addition to the wider implications of maternal wellbeing, social, and psychological environment on dental health,” said co-author Wael Sabbah from the Dental Institute at Kings College London. “Our study indicated that mothers with lower income were significantly less likely to breastfeed or to have taken their child to the dentist in the prior year,” Sabbah said. This was not the first study to associate maternal exposure to stress and child cavities, but it is the first study to examine the relationship using biological markers – serum triglycerides; serum HDL cholesterol; plasma glucose; serum C-reactive protein; systolic or diastolic blood pressure; and waist circumference, researchers said. The study was published in the American Journal of Public Health. PTI MHN RCL AKJ RCLadvertisementlast_img read more

If the current bids are anything to go by, it signifies a huge percentile jump for the digital bandwagon.According to industry watchers, a truncated right (2018-2022) from a previously ten-year period also signifies that even the world’s richest cricketing board BCCI is watching the digital canvas carefully even though monetisation of digital platform still remains a long-rope game.“The digital market is growing very rapidly. The increase in bandwidth and connectivity for all the major digital players have also helped. IPL is a catalyst for the growth of their business,” BCCI CEO Rahul Johri said while acknowledging the growing significance of digital platforms.Out of the 24 companies that had picked the invitation to iender (ITT) to bid for the broadcast and digital rights, only 14 were present in Mumbai on Monday.Uday Reddy, CEO, Yupp TV, an Atlanta headquartered OTT player, which also marked its maiden entry into the IPL media rights bidding, said: “We were bidding for the overseas rights for markets such as US and the Middle East where we follow a subscription model. Digital is where the growth is and we see the switch happening soon in the Indian market too.”The industry sources said that big players like Twitter and Amazon opted out as a “strategic” business decision.“Most industry players realise that digital is the fastest growing segment. Companies want to invest in scaling up their offerings,“ said Varun Gupta, Duff & Phelps Managing Director.Duff & Phelps in its recent report had pointed that social media is fuelling the growth in IPL making it one of the fastest growing sports leagues on Twitter with 4.9 million followers and adding over 1.8 million fans on Facebook during the most recent season.He said that IPL’s viewership both in digital and linear was growing even in rural areas. “We expect companies in the digital space to monetise from the digital platforms sooner.”Duff & Phelps said that sporting enthusiasts are able to catch-up on the live matches on their mobile phones thanks to OTT players.It pointed that Hotstar, which had previously won the three-year digital broadcasting rights for IPL in 2015, had seen a massive spike in viewership with 41 million viewers in 2015, 100 million in 2016, and is expected to have reached a 130 million mark in 2017.Interestingly, the average time spent per user for an IPL match on Hotstar is 40–45 minutes, up from 30-35 minutes during IPL 9, which is on par with Sony’s average viewership of around 45 minutes per user.”Cricket is still an amazing experience in India, and we look only at that factor. Our view was that we would be able to create a complete experience for fans. Indian consumers have surprised everybody in the world, as the aggressive bid for the digital rights would suggest. It can become a lot more exciting depending on data prices. India can be one of the hottest digital markets,” Uday Shankar, CEO, Star India, said.ESPN Digital Media, Discovery, Gulf DTH, Sky Uk Ltd, Amazon, Media India, BTG Legal Services, Taj TV, BTPLC, Twitter, Group M — all part of the initial 24 to pick the ITT — did not submit bids.
