  1. What is the probability of them qualifying for 2024 Olympics
  2. I don't think rowing is a priority for IOA, as we are going win a quota anyway. Also the boat is expensive and the main training centers are at Army locations.
  3. The World Championships start from next week which is more important. Perhaps shouldn't gauge form from this tournament, to prepare for the Worlds evident from the number of retirements. True that Sindhu is not technical and graceful
  4. Manika Batra and Sutirtha Mukherjee could be suspended by ITTF
  5. Its not the nationals but BWF approved India International Challenge tournament held in Bangalore. Women's singles saw few upsets and Uber Cup squad players and other hopefuls like Aakarshi Kashyap, Mugdha Agrey, Samiya Farooqui lost to lower ranked opponents. Even Men's Singles had few upsets like top seeds Subhankar Dey, Kiran George and Chirag Sen losing early in the tournament Women's Doubles final will be interesting as its between Uber Cup squad players - Treesa/Gayatri vs Panda/Crasto
  6. Very impressed by the next generation of young female shuttlers with s convincing win over Scotland yesterday. There was dearth of young female singles and doubles players for a long who could challenge and take the mantle from Saina Nehwal, PV Sindhu and Ashwini Ponnappa. But the new crop of Malvika Bansod, Aditi Bhatt and Rutuparna-Tanisha look promising. Rutuparna-Tanisha even defeated the 49th rank Scottish pair. It was also a good debut for 16 year old Tasnim Mir. Now they shall play the fancied Thailand team, lets see how it goes.
  7. Can anyone analyze medal winning chances of each of our 54 member strong Paralympic contingent
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. Shame neither qualified for individual 400m
  15. Despite setting Asian record in Men's 4x400m relay, India couldn't qualify for the final.
