  1. Can anyone analyze medal winning chances of each of our 54 member strong Paralympic contingent
  2. There was a simultaneous tournament to be played in Toronto against Pakistan which was the Sahara Cup, a 5 ODI series. BCCI actually held an intra-team match to decide which players would go where. The losers would play in CWG while the winners would go to Canada. Unfortunately, India failed miserably in both; lost 4-1 in Toronto and couldn't qualify for the quarters finishing behind Antigua and Barbuda in the group
  3. Indian audience seems to be targeted by the IOC. The Olympic website was providing India specific news and updates and also had a language option of Hindi. Even in social media like Youtube and Twitter, a lot of India specific and Hindi language content was produced. Coming to cricket, I think ICC also believes 2032 is more realistic but want to make the groundwork by then. Australia as a host makes more sense with iconic stadiums like MCG, SCG, Adelaide Oval and Gabba
  4. Thats because of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI)'s intervention. Under Olympic rules, all national sports federation need to report to the respective country's Olympic association. But BCCI is autonomous and doesn't come under Indian Olympic Association. Most of the cricket revenue comes from India and hence they control International Cricket Council (ICC) as well.
  5. The first week was poor due to Shooting and Boxing results but the final days has truly brought joy. This is simply historic. We have a very young squad and the next generation is top notch too. Now let's cheer for the Paralympics
  6. Dipa Karmakar hardly participated after 2016 and is struggling with injuries. Aditi Ashok was 400 in 2016 and 200 now, hope this propels he career and attracts more sponsors
  7. Shooting, Boxing, Wrestling truly underwhelmed. A lot of introspection is required. In terms of athletes quality, I think we have progressed but need to have an extra edge in coaching and mental strength to win at the bigger tournaments. Don't see any tennis players qualifying in Paris unless some wunderkid arrives on the scene. Also the young badminton players need to step for the next Kidambi or Sindhu. Hope we get some decent doubles players too especially in women's
  8. Shame neither qualified for individual 400m
  9. Despite setting Asian record in Men's 4x400m relay, India couldn't qualify for the final.
  10. World No 1 Nelly Korda is comfortably ahead after a superb -9 par in Round 2 and should win the gold. Aditi Ashok has 2 shot lead but has players like World No 11 Lydia Ko trailing her. I hope she nerves of steel in Round 4. I thought with 2 bogeys Round 3 would come back to bite her like in Rio but she held on. Fingers crossed!!
  11. So can we clear the magical number of 6. Still medal winnable athletes remaining - Bajrang Punia, Neeraj Chopra. Dark horse - Women's hockey team, Aditi Ashok, Seema Bisla,
  12. Yes in this of euphoria of hockey team winning and disappointment of Vinesh's performance, there is Aditi Ashok who is in tied in 2nd after two rounds. Hope she doesn't repeat Rio where she tied in 8th spot after 2 round but then shot 8 over par in the third round effectively ruining medal chances. Still fingers crossed for her
  13. During semi final match in 57kg freestyle between Ravi Dahiya and Nurislam Sanayev, Sanayev apparently bit Ravi. Does this impose any penalties or suspension
  14. For a team ranked 10th, a quarterfinal place was a realistic target, and the team has done better than that. Expecting to finish 4th though
  15. Anshu Malik in repechage against 2016 silver medallist Valeria Koblova
