laughter from MC Mary Kom but the five-time world champion says being an active boxer and a Parliamentarian at the same time is no laughing matter as the twin jobs are exhausting and exhilarating in equal measure India vs Bangladesh Live Score In an interview with PTI on Sunday the London Olympics bronze-medallist the first and only Indian woman boxer to have achieved the feat spoke of her struggles to manage time during the just-concluded Budget Session of the Parliament albeit jovially “I joined the national camp a fortnight ago and soon the Budget Session also started (from January 31) So I would go for training at 7 in the morning to the IG Stadium rush back to change and head straight to the Parliament because I didn’t want my attendance to suffer” Mary Kom says “It was like racing against time and after hard training you tend to feel very exhausted too But then most of the times the proceedings in the Parliament are so lively that there is no risk of being caught asleep There is never a dull moment” she adds with a burst of laughter “But on a more serious note I wish the day could be of 48 hours” The 34-year-old who is five-time Asian champion besides having a coveted Asian Games gold medal as well was nominated to the Rajya Sabha last year Tell her that multiple roles make her comparable to Pacquiao the Filipino boxing superstar who is a Senator as well as an active boxer Mary Kom breaks into a giggle “But hey I am managing a lot more being a woman Training Parliament and then doing my own chores at home and of course taking care of my children” she points out Speaking of her first love which is boxing Mary Kom has not competed since last year’s World Championships in May where she could not qualify for what would have been her second Olympic

now over and Mary Kom is back in the mix in the national camp where a new coaching team of 16 under former men’s coach Gurbax Singh Sandhu has taken over “I am happy with how the camp is going so far I have been doing light training mostly spending about 3-4 hours in a day as of now There are two training-cum-competition trips coming up in China and Kazakhstan next month I have the option of going there if it works out” Mary Kom says “I am focussed on the Asian and Commonwealth Games next year I am taking it year by year now I will try to remain injury-free and there is no lack of fire in me My hunger remains as strong as ever” she adds “There have been some changes in the international rules now even women boxers have to compete in the format of three rounds of three minutes each I have adjusted to all that though That has been quite easy” And what of the constant speculation that she would take the political plunge full time Recently there were reports that she could even be campaigning for a political party in the Manipur elections “I don’t really see myself as a politician although it’s a huge honour to have been nominated to the Rajya Sabha Right now I want to continue competing and raise issues close to my heart in the Parliament whenever I get a chance” she says Staying on the subject of politics Mary Kom says she is concerned about the economic blockade that has crippled her home state Manipur “I hope to see peace I want things to normalise There are efforts being made and I hope they succeed” she concludes For all the latest Sports News download Indian

than the first one he hammered "This century is much sweeter than the first because we could romp home this time I think we needed a victory to pull ourselves up after losing the earlier match where I got my first century of the season" he told reporters at the post-match press conference at Chinnaswamy stadium Kohli gave credit to Lokesh Rahul and Shane Watson for their contributions in Bangalore’s seven-wicket win over Pune "I think one player cannot win you a game I was supported very well by KL at the top and then Watto came in and made a quickfire 36 runs" said Kohli who hit 108 not out to guide RCB to a seven-wicket win over Pune Virat Kohli batting during his unbeaten innings of 108 off 58 balls Sportzpics/IPL On Shane Watson’s influence on the team Kohli said today’s performance both with the bat and the ball by the Australian all-rounder probably was the best which he had given to any IPL team before "He was brilliant with his bat and ball in this match I think this was the best contribution he made for any IPL team before Great to see him bounce back He was pumped to come out good after a couple of bad innings with his bat" he said Replying to a query Kohli said Chris Gayle was not rested but Travis Head was in the playing eleven today for his all-round abilities "Gayle wasn’t rested We chose Travis Head in place of him because we felt that we needed more solidity in the middle Travis strikes the ball really well and KL (Rahul) and me are opening well for the team and Travis can bowl off-spin as well in the middle if need be" he said Also Travis was brought in as Pune boasted of three left-handed batsmen Kohli said Kohli said he would not want to lose an outstanding fielder in A B De Villiers by asking him to keep wickets "To ask AB keep will be too far costly for we would miss his services on the field He is an outstanding fielder If you take away a good fielder like AB it will leave our team with nothing in fielding aspect" he said Kohli said the team’s losses even after posting 150 plus totals hurt him the most which goaded him to stay at the wicket till the end to register the much-needed victory today "Even after posting 150 plus totals we were losing and hence decided to put a premium on my bat and made up my mind to stay at the wicket till the end and see the team through a win which was very much needed" he said He also said that he preferred Sachin Baby to Sarfaraz Khan in his side on account of superior fielding abilities "He (Sarfaraz) understands the areas in which he needs to work on as far as the fitness and fielding part is concerned You can’t afford to have too many guys in the field who are not up to the mark with their fielding because the outfield here is lightning quick" Kohli said "I think Sachin is in that aspect is very committed and he is fit and he works on those things Me as captain I want to have a guy who gives 120 per cent on the field and saves some crucial five to six runs" he added In addition to commenting about Sarfaraz’s fielding abilities Kohli said because of the position he comes in to bat the Mumbai lad hardly gets 10 to 15 balls to play "Also we understand the position Sarfaraz plays he is going to get 10 to 15 balls to play" he said Written by Sadaf Modak | Mumbai | Published: November 15 2016 1:27 am Top News AS THEY took the stage one by one over 35 boys who have
