Published: June 25 2013 12:45 am Top News The Indian challenge at the China Open Boxing Tournament in Guiyang last week resulted in a haul of a silver and four bronze medals And while each member of the squad was making his seniot international debut in the invitational tournamentcoach Jaidev Bishtwho accompanied the boxerssaid the haul was an expected one “It is actually a bit easier to take youngsters on tour With the seniorssurprisinglythere is a lot more insecurity They know that there are a lot of expectations on them and so need constant motivation For the new boxershoweverthere is no place to go but up so they are always full of confidence” he said Exposure tour While the tournament was seen as a good exposure tour for what national coach Jaidev Bisht describes as Indian boxing’s third string squadequally important was the fact that it was India’s first experience with AIBA’s recently reintroduced professional style 10-points-a must scoring pattern Under the systema judge must award ten points to at least one fighter after every round (before a deduction if applicable for foul) Most rounds are scored 10-9with 10 points for the fighter who won the roundand 9 points for the fighter the judge believes lost the round The score is 10-10 for a draw and a point is dropped for every knockdown The system itself isn’t something Bisht was unused to During his own amateur career in the late 80s and early 90sthis was the system in place before being replaced by computerised one-point-for-one-punch scoring in 1992 “When we boxed in the eightieswe had a similar style of scoring We started with this scoring and now we are returning to the same system” says Bisht who headed from Delhi to the national camp in Patiala on Tuesday evening However the system was new for much of India’s current batch “Many of our boxers weren’t even born when the old system was in place so to help them prepare we showed them some videos of old bouts from the 80s” he says As the boxers prepare for the changesthe key difference explains Bisht was adapting the slick style India have developed in the past decade to to one which places equal emphasis on strength “Ever since computerised scoring was introducedthe key aspect was to land as many punches as possible So sometimes even glancing shots got counted Now a fighter has to dominate a round to get the ten points That meanshe has to move wellhave strong defence and punch both hard and with accuracy” he says Despite the experience in ChinaBisht isn’t sure if the scoring he saw will be the norm for the future “It’s really hard to tell anything from these competitions Will judges be more favourable to clear shotsor will a fighter who is more busy but maybe not so accurate do better China was an invitational competion and as such there isn’t a lot of attention paid to the scoring patterns In the smaller tournamentevery judge has his own version of scoring If we base our preparations for the Asian Championships on just how the scoring for the China tournament we could be surprised The real challenge will be at the World Championships in Kazakhstan in October The pattern the judges use over there will be the one followed strictly after that” he says a Few tricks Bisht however adds that there a few tricks that worked when he was a competitor and still worked when he passed them on to the boxers in China “You have to make a good first impression and last impression Most judges pay close attention to the starting stages and the closing seconds of a round These are the two timesboxers have to be aggressive as possible If they try and rest in the middle period it is allright as long as they dominate in the start and finish” he says For all the latest Delhi News download Indian

control the outcome of the game So when I walk out onto the field on Friday I will just enjoy the crowd" the coach had said when asked about pressure before the first game To name a few India have the likes of Harmanpreet Singh Dipsan Tirkey Sumit Varun Kumar among the young faces for this competition "All the young players have potential and that’s why they are with the team Now it’s normal for most of the youngsters to reach a high level and then fall But what’s important is how they cope with the fall and learn from it because with all the expectations it’s normal for them to fall at

due to a fallout with the channel he has now joined Sony Entertainment Television for his new show which features the same team of comedians consisting of Sunil Grover Ali Asgar Kiku Sharda Sumona Chakravarti and Chandan Prabhakar Asked why he has retained the same team and not added fresh faces he told IANS in a group interview: “Fresh faces might work for films but there are very few people with perfect comedy timing in our industry “Secondly I have been friends with some of them for so long like I have known Chandan since school worked with Ali and Sunil for so long so we know each other’s strength each others timing…” “We are able to look at each other and we know that the person has forgotten his line so now we have to cover him up… this kind of tuning is rather difficult to achieve” he added Read More Talking about the people who might have a problem with the content of the show Kapil quipped that if people are commenting over the show it means they watch it “If people are commenting over our content then it means they watch it People keep commenting on something or the other anyways For intance I make jokes and pull my wife’s (essayed by Sumona) leg a lot… people commented on that too” said the “Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon” actor “There are a lot of jokes that we make it keeps happening in our society around us If we don’t pull our friend’s leg then how do you define friendship this is part of the relationship We try not to have below-the-belt jokes which is our USP We have children watching our show and obviously the parents trust us enough that their children can watch us and that is something we will and want to retain” he added With ongoing subject of intolerance and the questions which are being raised about the freedom of speech Kapil commented that he and the team are now “very careful with our comedy topics and words otherwise we are jailed” “I feel that people should not take their lives so seriously and waste energy In foreign

7-6 (4) 6-3 and reach the Shanghai Masters semifinals on Friday Djokovic was sluggish and off-target with his groundstrokes at the start piling up 18 unforced errors in the first set to only four for Zverev a German qualifier ranked 110th He started to find his game in the second set but Zverev continued to press him with his serve-and-volley style forcing more miscues Djokovic didn’t start to take control until the tiebreaker which he won handily He then got an early break in the third set and held on “I wasn’t striking the ball very well from the beginning of the match to be honest” Djokovic said “I was quite flat with my feet so he got me where he wanted to get me and to stand still at the baseline “He was fighting he was focused He gave his best and he was a few points from winning” Despite his rash of unforced errors – he finished with 37 including six double faults – Djokovic remained composed Rather than glower at his coaches in the stands or scream at himself he smiled after his miscues and at one point even hummed a little song Djokovic has said in recent weeks he’s trying to find more balance in his life and reduce some of the pressure he’s felt on court

champion Neeraj Goyat said that such incidents will scare away aspirant pro boxers (File Photo) Top News Professional boxers Neeraj Goyat Amandeep Singh and Kuldeep Singh could be barred from competing at the Nationals after taking part in the Super Boxing League (SBL) without acquiring the requisite permission from their employers Railways Sports Promotion Board (RSPB) On July 6 RSPB had issued a letter to the general secretaries of the zonal units and sports associations affiliated with it informing that the board has not approved the request of No-Objection Certificate from its boxers for participation in the league “It doesn’t make any sense because we are not even fighting under amateur rules This league is independent of the BFI We have fought on the professional circuit so I don’t know why these problems are being created this time” said Neeraj who is captaining the Haryana Warriors in the ongoing SBL Former Commonwealth Games bronze medallist Amandeep is leading the Punjab Sultans while multiple-time national champion Kuldeep captains Bahubali Boxers “Last year too we applied for an NOC for our professional fights and got it in a couple of days This time we had sent the application almost 20 days in advance but it was declined at the last moment” said Kuldeep “Also we only got to know about the letter as it was being circulated through WhatsApp the evening before the league’s opening We never actually saw the letter physically” No NOC from board RSPB secretary Rekha Yadav said that while the board has always allowed its sportspersons to take part in professional events the situation was different because BFI — which has refused to allow its boxers to take part in the league run by promoter Bill Dosanjh and British boxer Amir Khan — can put an embargo on Railways boxers’ participation at the National Games “I am least concerned if they recognise this competition or not Historically from cricket to kabaddi we have not just allowed our players to take part in competitions but have encouraged them to do so The more they play the better However BFI has hinted that it will not allow the boxers to play in the nationals which will impact my team’s performance In such cases I will not be able to issue an NOC I have sent a letter to the federation and am awaiting a written response” BFI officials were unavailable to comment Indian Air Force boxer Deepak Tanwar who is captaining the Maratha Yoddhas franchise said “my board gave me a go-ahead to compete in the SBL provided I applied for leave” “Even Vijender Singh has a job with Haryana Police Everybody should want their boxers to succeed If you really want to promote the sport in India that is” Tanwar said While Neeraj Amandeep and Kuldeep decided to go ahead and take part in the league other Railways boxers including Sunny Dayal and Deepak Sharma pulled out after the letter was issued “It’s all because of the scare tactics being used Only a handful of amateurs play at the Commonwealth Games and end with a job and money from the Centre and state governments” said Kuldeep “Fighting at Nationals no boxer will get such TV coverage audience or money as is the case with the SBL That’s why so many young boxers were excited to come here and take part” “Kisi wajah se professional boxers ko deshdrohi ki tarah dekha ja raha hai” said Neeraj who will defend his WBC Asia-Pacific welterweight title on August 5 on the card headlined by Vijender Singh “How are we doing anything wrong when even the world body AIBA has said that a professional boxer can compete in amateur events I represented my country and nearly qualified for the Rio Olympics as a professional boxer” The 25-year-old took part in AIBA’s Olympic qualifiers in Venezuela last year but fell one win short of booking a Rio berth “If I had qualified people wouldn’t have been so afraid of professional boxing and perhaps would have promoted it Manny Pacquiao can be an Member of Parliament without

singles match they’ve played in their careers Understandable since they weren’t quite watching themselves play it Except for this minority of two the rest of the badminton world even 24 hours later couldn’t recall a more engrossing shuttle spectacle than the one in which Okuhara triumphed in 110 minutes Carolina Marin called it an ‘amazing final’ Ratchanok Intanon tweeted this was ‘history making for women’s singles’ Scottish champ Kirsty Gilmour said ‘this has to go down as one of the best matches in history’ while Badminton Scotland’s chief Anne Smilie declared “It was an absolute cracker One that Glasgow will remember for a very long time” Jurrit Ruiter former Danish international lauded the “unreal commitment and fitness” of both players calling it probably the best “WS” match he had ever seen Hans Kristin Vittinghuus Danish Top 20 men’s singles shuttler tweeted: “We are in the middle of a golden era for women’s singles So many talented players and today the best WS match in badminton history” As things stand Carolina Marin Tai Tzu Ying Nozomi Okuhara PV Sindhu Sung Ji Hyun Akane Yamaguchi alongside the next string of Thais as well as Saina Nehwal are playing enough classics with criss-crossing rivalries and excellent off-court respect for women’s singles to look rosy You can nitpick on Sindhu’s stamina and the futile tactics the desperate attempts to find the second wind but anyone watching it would tell you she did her darnest to pull this within millimetres of the tape before she lost The Emirates Arena was filled to the brim fans had paid premium money to trudge up north to Glasgow from London to watch this Of course some had foolishly paid money to scream ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’ at the most inopportune moment right in the middle of a long rally—and their shrieking did coincide with two points Sindhu lost in doomed rallies But mostly the two principal characters performed this superhuman task of playing the greatest match while proving that this is indeed the golden period for women’s singles Technical superiority Okuhara has a gold medal to show for it But despite coming second-best here’s why Sindhu ought to remember this one fondly – once the stinging hurt of missing the big title subsides: She drew the absolute best effort out of Okuhara and gave the world a final that will be remembered for ages She was up against odds that need listing Okuhara is technically a far superior rounded player Three wins against Marin Nehwal and Sindhu make her sound like a metronomic retrieving machine but her ability to construct points has beaten the collective brains of three of the smartest coaches on the circuit – Fernando Rivas Vimal Kumar and Gopichand She pushed all three to predictability in Game 3 and none could do a lot about it She is 5’1” – and sense would dictate a bigger stronger opponent can overpower her But fantastically agile and blessed with anticipation she moves fluidly on the court to pick every shuttle and has devised an overhead spring shot and what’s called in the south of India a ‘jhatka drop’ to have three Olympic medallists of different hues and ages done in Sindhu paled in front of her in the sheer number of strokes in her armoury—though Okuhara had been beaten with a looming jump-smash at the Olympics And finally the Japanese was not going to go down on endurance or speed the first is essentially the Japanese base of training and the latter is Okuhara’s improvisation Lacking gumption Sindhu— forget the rankings and the seedings— was not the favourite to win this one and how close she got makes it her greatest—even above the Olympic thriller where she and Marin touched breakneck speed while pushing the pace on the rallies It’s why the Indian is a champion whose grit is to be respected though gumption was lacking Sindhu— forget the rankings and the seedings— was not the favourite to win this one and how close she got makes it her greatest—even above the Olympic thriller where she and Marin touched breakneck speed while pushing the pace on the rallies It’s why the Indian is a champion whose grit is to be respected though gumption was lacking It was sometime past the 105th minute with the score reading 19-21 22-20 19-20 that PV Sindhu made the 2017 World Championship final the greatest match in women’s singles of a very long time She would always be half claimant to a titanic battle that had gone past 100 minutes – and falling just one minute short of the longest-ever But 19-20 behind in the decider of the World Championship final – very tired a little delirious – Sindhu would have felt her body suffer more than her opponent and not for want of ‘fitness’ Tiredness swamps a taller athlete faster – it’s a quick spiral down – and it was in those flagging moments that Sindhu played the longsest rallies Okuhara held match point at 20-19 and it was then that in a shorter rally Sindhu would draw once more from dipping reserves to send one down the line right along the line that she got one in to offer her final resistance Frankly all the long rallies had been blurs for both—someday they’ll watch the replays and make sense of it—and in the middle it had boiled down to picking the next shuttle Okuhara with more options could think a little better Sindhu who was literally struggling to put the punch on her strokes though the arms were whirring was feverishly labouring There are 1000 things that could’ve been done in strategy but even the fittest bodies will struggle against the mastery of geometry that Okuhara was displaying It was somewhere in Sindhu’s dogged belief that she could overcome all of this that history got made Okuhara was built for retrieving—Sindhu did well to compete on the Japanese girl’s terms and still came close The solutions were somewhere in the future on the drawing board and in new strokes that’ll be learnt in hours of practice Sindhu’s greatness lies in moving at Okuhara’s speed —pushing her body to do that— even when her game was following firmly in the slipstream For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: AFP | London | Published: July 21 2017 2:55 am

seeking anticipatory bail in the case File photo of Dayanidhi Maran PTI Senior advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi appeared for Maran and sought urgent listing of his plea The Madras High Court on Monday hadcancelled Maran’s interim anticipatory bail in the controversial telephone exchange case and directed him to surrender before the CBI within three days while rejecting his charges of political vendetta The High Court held that "prima facie" Maran had "misused" his office by obtaining telephone connections "illegally" and allegations against him were backed by material CBI has registered an FIR against Maran and others alleging that more than 300 high-speed telephone lines were provided at his residence here and extended to his brother Kalanithi Maran’s SUN TV channel to enable its
