  1. Gaddafi Stadium The city of Lahore is all set to host the elimination matches of the Pakistan Super League on Tuesday and Wednesday. In the first match, Quetta Gladiators will take on Peshawar Zalmi in a rematch of last year?s final. Photo: accuweather.com The teams have arrived and have been met with light showers. The MET office said that intermittent light showers will continue throughout the day in the city. According to Accuweather, there is a 51 per cent chance of rain at 7pm which is when the match will start. In case the match is rained out, Peshawar Zalmi will face Karachi Kings in the second eliminator match with the winner facing Karachi Kings in the final in Karachi on March 25.
  2. Karachi Kings players celebrate a wicket SHARJAH: Islamabad United and Karachi Kings clash tonight in the last group match of the third edition of Pakistan Super League (PSL) in Sharjah. With Peshawar Zalmi's win over Karachi Kings on Thursday, and following victory over Quetta Gladiators last night, Islamabad United have confirmed their place as the top team on the points table, and will be playing the qualifier in Dubai on March 18. A victory in the qualifier would mean a direct flight to Karachi for the PSL 2018 final. For Karachi Kings, however, the outcome of today's Peshawar Zalmi vs Lahore Qalandars match holds great significance. Both Karachi and Multan will be praying for Lahore's success against Peshawar. If Peshawar lose, Peshawar are out of the competition and Karachi and Multan would join Islamabad and Quetta in the final four of the tournament. But if Peshawar win, then Karachi would have to beat Islamabad convincingly tonight before the playoffs.
  3. SHARJAH: Peshawar Zalmi Skipper Darren Sammy said on Friday that he had complete belief in himself before coming to the crease against Quetta Gladiators that he could finish the match with his three shots. Skipper Sammy's heroic cameo steered Peshawar Zalmi to the victory stand against Quetta Gladiators in the mid-table clash held at the Sharjah Cricket Ground. The injured Windies all-rounder scored 16 off four balls, including two sixes and one boundary ? chasing the required ten runs in the last over of the game. Speaking after the match, Sammy said that the coach at the dugout also told him that he has to just hit three sixes. ?I have been in such situation before and was telling myself that I just have to execute three hits,? he said, ?I can't say anything about my injury right now but I am happy to win the match for my team.?

Kings, captained by Imad Wasim in this year?s Pakistan Super League (PSL), have revamped their lineup, the trade-in of Shahid Afridi from Peshawar Zalmi being the biggest boost to their squad. Another boost to the Kings is England captain Eoin Morgan, who was drafted in from Zalmi as well. However, the team might miss the presence of opener Luke Wright, who ruled himself out over fitness concerns. Veterans Kumar Sangakkara, Chris Gayle, Kieron Pollard and Mahela Jayawardena were also released by the team to make way for younger blood, after the team had a disappointing run in PSL 1 and managed to finish third in the group stage in PSL 2. Sarfraz Ahmed?s Gladiators, on the other hand, made it to the finals in both the previous editions, facing a heartbreak each time as the trophy continued to elude them. This time, Gladiators? arsenal is stronger than ever: Jason Roy and Shane Watson, who have been traded in from Lahore Qalandars and Islamabad United, respectively, bring immense depth to an already consistent side. Among the youngsters, Afghanistan?s spin sensation Rashid Khan, Pakistan U-19 captain Hassan Khan and fast-rising speedster Jofra Archer bring additional strength to the team. Here?s a look at the two teams and their key players: Karachi Kings Head coach: Mickey Arthur Captain: Imad Wasim Squad: Imad Wasim (c), Babar Azam, Joe Denly, Colin Ingram, Khurram Manzoor, Lendl Simmons, Saifullah Bangash, Eoin Morgan, Mohammad Rizwan, Mohammed Taha, Tabish Khan, Ravi Bopara, Hasan Mohsin, Shahid Afridi, David Wiese, Usama Mir, Tymal Mills, Mohammad Amir, Usman Khan Shinwari Spotlight geo_embedgallery Quetta Gladiators Head coach: Moin Khan Captain: Sarfraz Ahmed Squad: Sarfraz Ahmed (c), Rilee Rossouw, Jason Roy, Kevin Pietersen, Rameez Raja, Asad Shafiq, Shane Watson, Umar Amin, Mohammad Nawaz, Mahmudullah, Jofra Archer, Saad Ali, Saud Shakeel, Rashid Khan, Anwar Ali, Hassan Khan Mohammad, Mir Hamza, Rahat Ali Spotlight geo_embedgallery
  5. BAGHDAD: A goalkeeper in Iraq?s top league hid the death of his newborn daughter from his teammates in order to take part in a key match, the player said Saturday. "Several hours before the game my five-day-old daughter died because of complications during birth," Naft Maysan stopper Alaa Ahmad told AFP. Ahmad, 21, said he asked his family not to spread the information as he was desperate to play in the match Thursday in order to show off his capabilities against giants Al-Shorta, owned by the interior ministry. "I took a lot on myself and did not tell my teammates or coach because I knew they would refuse to let me play," he said. Ahmad helped his underdog team to a 1-1 draw against their rivals but, while other players began celebrating at the final whistle, he said he was "hit by a bizarre sensation" and collapsed in tears. News of Ahmad?s decision spread rapidly on social media and he was flooded with messages of support. Pundits heaped praise on his performance, with one of the match referees saying he put in a "spectacular" showing.
  6. The highly-anticipated St. Moritz Ice Cricket tournament in Switzerland concluded with the Shahid Afridi-led Royals clinching the two-match series 2-0 against the Virender Sehwag-led Diamonds. After winning the first match, the Royals comfortably chased down the Diamonds' total of 204 runs in 16.4 overs with eight wickets to spare. The unique tournament gave the fans many iconic moments to cherish. If the concept of playing cricket on ice was not interesting enough, the unforgettable moments including Sehwag's blistering fifty in the first game, Jacques Kallis' 90 in the second and even Afridi's touching gesture towards his Indian fans; undoubtedly made the two-day tournament a memorable affair. Indian Fangirl Folded The Indian Flag While Taking A Picture With Shahid Afridi Thinking He Might Get In Trouble. #ShahidAfridi Asks Her "Flag Seedha Karo". Thank You #Afridi, Lots Of Love From India. ðð®ð³ #IceCricketChallenge #IceCricket #Pakistanpic.twitter.com/zIZPnN4giL — Sir Ravindra Jadeja (@SirJadeja) February 10, 2018 But, amidst all the buzz surrounding the players, there was another guy - not a cricketer - who won over the fans in his own unique manner. Ranveer Singh is an actor who has portrayed many characters in his career, but only a few know how good this lad is with the willow. The man who impressed everyone with his acting skills with his portrayal of Alauddin Khilji in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Padmaavat', left the opposition and his fans shell-shocked after displaying his batting skills in the Ice Cricket tournament. Just like his movies, Ranveer delivered a blockbuster performance at St. Moritz too. The 32-year-old displayed perfect batting strokes while facing opposition bowlers. And, with six runs required off the last ball, he even emulated MS Dhoni by rocking back and hitting a massive six over long-off to win the game. Apart from his batting, Ranveer also enthralled fans with his uncanny commentary in a British accent. An ardent sports fanatic, Ranveer is also the brand ambassador for the English Premier League (EPL) in India and has attended several international sports events around the world. In fact, he will soon be seen playing Indian cricket legend Kapil Dev who led the country to its first-ever World Cup title in 1983.

  8. If successful, the faster format could lead to a competition in Hong Kong next year, with New York, Singapore, and London also being considered SYDNEY: Australian Rules football has joined the ranks of other major sports in launching an experimental shorter format as it eyes a foreign expansion, with Hong Kong first up. The Australian Football League will play its first AFLX matches locally next week with the number of players on the field reduced from 18 to seven, and new rules that eliminate stoppages. AFL chiefs said the plan was to speed up the game in a similar vein to rugby sevens, while accompanying the occasion with all the colour that spectators have come to expect from T20 cricket matches. "We´ve had trouble taking our game internationally," AFL chief executive Gillon McLachlan admitted late Tuesday. "This is not our traditional game, AFLX, but it´s got all the best bits of it -- it´s the same goals and the same rules, generally, (although) scoring is different." Aussie Rules, the country´s biggest spectator sport, is similar to Gaelic football but played with an oval ball. McLachlan said if successful locally, the faster format could lead to a competition in Hong Kong next year, while The Australian newspaper said New York, Singapore, and London were also being considered. "It means we can go to Hong Kong in November next year, not only with two clubs, but you could take six clubs and we could play a mini tournament," he said. The AFL played its first game in China last year and will return this season after more than 10,000 people attended the match in Shanghai and millions more watched on TV. Traditionally played on an oval-shaped pitch, AFLX will be held on a smaller rectangular ground, making it easier to export, McLachlan said. "To take our game and showcase all the best bits of it and actually not have to build infrastructure like we do in Shanghai, as an example, or go to other parts of Asia, or Europe, or wherever -- that´s a huge opportunity," he said.

  12. Back in 2016, when Mumbai teenager Pranav Dhanawade scripted history by becoming the first cricketer ever to notch up a four-figure score by smashing an unbeaten 1,009 in an inter-school tournament, few would've expected his mammoth record to be overshadowed anytime soon. But, 30 January, another young talent took everyone by surprise with his unbelievable batting masterclass. Tanishq Gavate sent shockwaves across the cricket fraternity after smashing an unbeaten 1,045 in a local cricket tournament in neighbouring Navi Mumbai. © Twitter Playing for the Yashwantrao Chavan XI, the 13-year-old hammered a staggering 149 fours and 67 sixes in his 515-ball innings that spanned over two-days play in the semi-final of the Under-14 Navi Mumbai Shield invitational cricket tournament. The youngster, with his wide array of strokes, cut a sorry figure for the bowlers of Yashwantrao Chavan English Medium School team. An astounding 1ï¸â£0ï¸â£4ï¸â£5ï¸â£ runs by young Tanishq Gavate! ð¥ The 13 year old represented Yashwantrao Chavan XI in the #U14 tournament and smashed 1ï¸â£4ï¸â£9ï¸â£ boundaries and 6ï¸â£7ï¸â£ sixes! #HallaBol#Cricket pic.twitter.com/QpLE4RxSCc — Rajasthan Royals (@rajasthanroyals) January 31, 2018 “Previously he used to bat at one or two down but he requested me to allow him to open the innings. After testing him in the nets with the new ball and in few practice matches, I was confident that he can do well,” his coach Manish was quoted as saying by Hindustan Times. Cruised through the nervous 900s I'm told — Change the date [-0-] (@ShaneC2) January 31, 2018 Tanishq was happy that he stayed on the crease for such a long time and hopes that Tuesday's innings gives a boost to his career. “I like to open as it gives me time to play long innings and I managed to do so on Tuesday. Hopefully, I can continue in same way from here on,” said the eighth standard student, who had also scored unbeaten 316 in an earlier match. Mind blowing.... Keep it up..... — Perdip kumar (@PerdipKumar) January 31, 2018 But, despite his batting masterclass, Tanishq failed to eclipse Dhanawade's mammoth record since the tournament he was playing in was not recognised by the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA). While he might have failed to etch his name in the history books, Tanishq's batting masterclass is undeniably worthy of applause and promises bigger and greater things in the future.
  13. You know your match is going haywire when people talk about the weather and mask more than your performance. And the Sri Lankan Cricket team learnt this the hardest way possible, after the Internet started buzzing over them wearing masks, during the second day of the third and final test match between Sri Lanka and India. © Twitter Delhi has forever been under the garb of pollution and the recently announced hazardous level of smog has only worsened the situation for Delhiites. With schools being shut, traffic piling up because of poor visibility, Delhi has been facing the wrath of smog and pollution for the longest time now. But, this time around it was the Sri Lankan players, particularly captain Dinesh Chandimal, Suranga Lakmal and Lakash Sadakanan; who seemed to be affected by smog and were seen wearing face marks while playing at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium today. © Twitter In fact, citing the uncomfortable playing conditions during smog, there was a delay of over 15 minutes during the post-lunch session. In fact, the umpires had to check if the air quality was too poor for the match to continue, due to which the match was interrupted twice. Amidst growing confusion and discussions that were constantly delaying the match, Indian captain Virat Kohli then took the centre-stage and decided to put a halt to this by declaring the Indian innings at 536 for 7. Innings break! India declare their innings on 536/7. Updates - https://t.co/OKFOpkiBg9 #INDvSL pic.twitter.com/jRzygy50g4 — BCCI (@BCCI) December 3, 2017 Twitter went crazy as soon as the Sri Lankan players walked out wearing masks.

The fast bowlers are more likely to be affected by poor air quality than anyone else. — Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) December 3, 2017 stopping the test is as bad a publicity as we can get. But maybe it's what we need for our government to really wake up. #DelhiTest #Pollution — jyotsna mohan (@jyotsnamohan) December 3, 2017 It is reportedly the first time ever in the history of international cricket that a Test match came to a halt citing air pollution. This is not for the first time that a match between India and Sri Lanka has faced delay. Earlier, too during a match when the Sri Lankan fans went berserk and started throwing bottles on the ground and amidst the growing tension MS Dhoni was seen sleeping on the ground like it was nobody's business. But, this incident does not take away from the fact that Team India played exceptionally well in the match and made the whole nation proud. In the first day of the Test match, the deadly partnership between Murali Vijay and Virat Kohli gave the Sri Lankan team a tough time and helped India reach a gigantic score of 371 for the loss of four wickets. While, Murali Vijay got out at 155, Virat Kohli completed his double century today and got dismissed at 243 on Sadakanan's delivery.
  14. In what turned out to be an absolute cracker of a game, FC Goa edged past 10-man Bengaluru FC to claim a 4-3 win at the Fatorda stadium during the Indian Super League (ISL) clash on Thursday. The excitement was sky-high as the game witnessed this season's first hat-trick via Goan striker Ferran Corominas. There was also a spike in the tempers on the field when Bengaluru goalkeeper Gurpreet Singh Sandhu needlessly challenged Manuel Lanzarote and punched the Goan player on the neck. Soon, Sandhu received his marching orders by the referee, while Goa extended their lead through a penalty. © Twitter/IndSuperLeague Both teams played attacking football which arguably made the match one of most thrilling contests this season. Despite, playing almost the entire second-half with 10 men, Bengaluru put up some tough competition to the hosts before their impressive start to the season but suffered an honourable defeat. It was Goa's second win this season also their first at home. The hosts did almost everything right in the game and were arguably worthy winners, but their fans booing Sunil Chhetri - the talisman of Indian football team - was probably uncalled for. © Twitter/@IndSuperLeague Despite coming so close to winning the match with 10 men, Bengaluru fans must've felt unlucky which somewhat reflected in the tweet by their skipper. "To the fans who made it to the stands, we heard you all night, gave our all but fell short. We will learn and go again and again," Chhetri tweeted after the game. Following Chhetri's heartfelt tweet, many Bengaluru fans expressed their displeasure at the way Indian football captain was treated by the Goa supporters. Goa fans must be ashamed to boo a player who had done so much to this country such a classless fucktwats.. — Choda Writes â (@ImoRoflme) November 30, 2017 U can't boo sunil chetri who is role model for youth he is captain leader Legend this is shame for Goa fans — Aman (@Aman62268201) November 30, 2017 FC Goa fans booed sunil chhetri, Who is leading scorer and captian of indian football team and truely the greatest ever that indian football will produce. Goa fans are disgrace for indian football #Shame — Rishav Rishu (@RishavRishu11) December 1, 2017 Amid the outrage by the Bengaluru supporters, the Goa FC fans tackled fire with fire. This ain't International Football , SC was playing for the opponents. We booed every BFC player without looking at nationality.just to get on their nerves — The_Sarcastic_Dude (@FilSarcastic) December 1, 2017 So your gonna cry now cause we booed BFC players?? Man up dude , this is Football. Do your best when you get the chance. — The_Sarcastic_Dude (@FilSarcastic) December 1, 2017 And, soon the debate expanded to the conduct of players on the field.

Kicking evry Goan player they get. Should try in some Tollywood action movies. — The_Sarcastic_Dude (@FilSarcastic) December 1, 2017 But, in the end, Bengaluru fans lifting the spirits and cheering Chhetri after the cruel result was probably the best thing on Twitter. We lost but we are proud of how you guys played. 10 man down and literally made a comeback. Hard luck.

  15. One of the most-watched and exciting football leagues in the country, the Indian Super League (ISL) was aimed at finding budding talent at the grass-roots level and nurturing them in the presence of international icons. And, this year's edition has also seen an increase of local players in the playing XI after a restriction on overseas stars. The likes of Lallianzuala Chhangte (Delhi Dynamos) and Sunil Chhetri (Bengaluru FC) have also ensured that the level of skill and competition elevates this season. But, while the cash-rich league continues to break new ground every year, the nuisance in the stands during matches remains an area of great concern. The first incident, in this season, came to light when racist chants during the Bengaluru FC and Mumbai City FC clash echoed in the stands. The reports suggested that the some sections of the Bengaluru FC fans referred to Mumbai striker Achille Emana as a certain 'dark-coloured food item'. Is this how you treat visiting fans @ChennaiyinFC @Supermachans ?? pic.twitter.com/XP5l6nA4el — Khalid Mahmood (@TheReal_Khalid) November 23, 2017 If that wasn't enough, another incident has hit the web during Thursday's match between Chennaiyin FC and NorthEast United FC. In a viral video shared by a spectator from the JLN stadium in Chennai, some local fans - especially one boy - is seen performing a vulgar dance in front of a group of northeastern girls. Really disgusting behavior by some Chennaiyin fans against these Northeastern girls. Football is all about mutual respect. Hope we don't see any more of this anywhere. Say No To Racism#LetsFootball @fni @ pic.twitter.com/qC76zsyjWi — Madhurzya (@FlyinGiggsy) November 24, 2017 While the Chennaiyin side absolutely massacred the NorthEast side to seal a 3-0 win, the nuisance by what appears to a home fan has undoubtedly brought a bad name to the Abhishek Bachchan co-owned franchise. A statement has also been issued by Chennaiyin FC who took to Twitter to condemn the act. Chennaiyin FC has a very strict and firm policy against racism and any unbecoming behaviour in the stadium. The club strongly condemns any such act. We are looking into any such incidents and will take strong action against it. pic.twitter.com/0ZD2VjMCBM — Chennaiyin FC (@ChennaiyinFC) November 24, 2017 On the other hand, Chennai's star striker Jeje Lalpekhlua - who hails from Mizoram - also minced no words. Hei hi kan ngai serious viau e. Investigation anti mek e. An man chhuah ngei pawh beisei ani ati tu te hi. — jeje lalpekhlua (@jejefanai) November 24, 2017 Taking to Twitter, the Indian footballer revealed that a thorough investigation is currently underway to get hold of the perpetrators seen in the video. The NorthEast United club also issued a statement from their owner and Bollywood star John Abraham. Statement: NEUFC stands by the the passionate supporters who faced untoward incident at the Marina Arena in Chennai last night. Here is a brief statement from our owner John Abraham. #Highlanders we are with you. #8States1United pic.twitter.com/ceej8iVvG3 — NorthEast United FC (@NEUtdFC) November 24, 2017 Chennai fans have also condemned the shameful act with many expressing their displeasure as to why none of the bystanders interfered or came to the aid of the victims. On the other hand, the NorthEast fans labelled it as one of the various incidents of racism they go through in north and south India. THIS IS RACISM! WE (NORTH EAST PEOPLE) ARE ALSO INDIANS. WE'RE SO HURT. Dear @IndianFootball and @IndSuperLeague, please identify them and take legal actions.

  17. The smog enveloping Delhi and its surrounding areas is showing no signs of retreating anytime soon. The PM levels of Delhi's air have already shot far beyond the permissible limit. While a reading of 50 PM 2.5 is the measure of good quality air, the air in Delhi already crossed the figure of 495, which is officially hazardous to life. While primary schools were shut and parking prices increased, the rest of Delhi still found itself scampering to get by. © BCCL And now, the rising smog has reached the areas surrounding Delhi. Haryana Ranji team captain Amit Mishra recently shared a picture of a cricket field in Lahli, Haryana, that has been completely enveloped by the smog. The situation is so bad there's almost zero visibility. The smog has made it impossible for the Haryana and Rajasthan teams to continue with the match on its fourth day. This is the condition today @ lahli. Hope we will get some play today. pic.twitter.com/JT8IjHRgi3 — Amit Mishra (@MishiAmit) November 12, 2017 The Haryana Ranji team was all set to win the game against Rajasthan, leading with a score of 252 runs on the third day, but the smog has decided to play spoilsport and has disrupted the game for good. Indian Medical Association (IMA) has declared this a public health emergency given the harmful effects of breathing in this poisonous air. Prolonged exposure to the polluted air in Delhi can increase risk of heart stroke, lung cancer and respiratory diseases. People have been advised to stay indoors and use N95 masks when stepping outside. When the situation is so dangerous, we wonder how our Ranji cricketers would fare playing in the open field for hours at end. The future looks rather foggy.
  18. Former Pakistan skipper Wasim Akram - Photo: WasimAkramlive.com Former Pakistan skipper Wasim Akram says it is very unfortunate that young cricketers from Pakistan and India are unable to play against each other. ?A Pakistan India match is more fun to watch than the Ashes. 20 million people watch the Ashes while a Pakistan India match is watched by a billion people,? Akram emphasised.

Politics and sport should be separate.? The BCCI, in 2014, agreed to play six bilateral series with Pakistan from 2015 to 2023, four of which were to be hosted by the Pakistan Cricket Board. However, the BCCI has refused to play any of the agreed series yet, neither in Pakistan nor at any neutral venue as Sri Lanka and the United Arab Emirates.
  19. TV screen grab shows Virat Kholi using the walkie-talkie Indian captain Virat Kohli was seen using a walkie-talkie during India?s T20 match against New Zealand on Wednesday. Video from the match showed Kohli sitting in the dugout using the walkie-talkie. According to reports in several Indian media outlets, this was a violation of International Cricket Council (ICC) regulations. However, ICC rules state: ?the use of two-way handheld device that uses dedicated frequencies over short distances (ie a walkie-talkie) by Player Support Personnel for the purpose of communication between the dugout and dressing room area for medical and/or tactical reasons only, provided such communication devices are suitably encrypted to avoid detection by any third party in the nearby vicinity." According to India Today, Kohli had sought permission from the ICC to use the walkie-talkie. An ICC source also confirmed to the publication that this was a non-issue.
  20. This photograph taken on October 8, 2017 shows bus driver Meher Muhammad Khalil, who drove the Sri Lankan cricket team to safety when it came under a gun and grenade attack by militants in March 2009, preparing to start his shift at a bus terminal in Lahore/AFP LAHORE: Driver Meher Mohammad Khalil, who became a hero when he whisked Sri Lankan cricket team to safety under militant fire in 2009, has been invited by the Pakistan Cricket Board to attend the historic T20 match at Gaddafi Stadium today. The 43-year old will also meet Sri Lanka Cricket officials and PCB chairman Najam Sethi during the occasion. The PCB made the announcement on Twitter. ?Mehar Khalil has been invited for the match today. He will also meet Sri Lankan officials and Chairman PCB,? the board?s media wing posted. Eight years after the tragedy that drove away international cricket from Pakistan, Khalil welcomed Sri Lanka back for Pakistan´s first cricket match against a top international team since the attack. In an interview earlier to Geo.tv, he recounted the tragic moments from March 3, 2009 when the bus he was driving carrying Sri Lankan team, came under attack by militants on way to Gaddafi Stadium. ?I don?t know what gave me the courage to do what I did,? he said about that fateful day. ?I saved many lives today, but I may have also saved the honour of my country.? Hero bus driver hopes to attend Pakistan-Sri Lanka T20 In 2009, few knew his name, and even fewer could have predicted his courage His heroic efforts were recognised by the Sri Lankan government, which invited him as a state guest for 10 days. At a special ceremony in Colombo, the then-Sri Lankan wicketkeeper Kumar Sangakkara thanked Khalil: ?His courage, selflessness and quick thinking enabled many of us to see another day. We will always have a special place for you in our hearts." Khalil moved to South Africa with his family after the attack, but relocated to Lahore in 2013 where he once more drives a bus in the city.

  22. From just being on the sidelines of an MMA bout, to actually ending up fighting in it and becoming a champion, to getting engaged, we can say one thing for sure – Luis Felipe Alvim had one hell of a night. The 22-year old went to watch the Fora Fight welterweight title fight between Carlos Eduardo Rufino and Claudinei Kall. But, it turned out that Rufino was overweight by just a single pound, so Kall finally decided to pull out after initially accepting, leaving the stage open for any competitor. That's when Alvim came in. © Instagram/Luis Felipe Alvim The mixed martial arts fan, who is a black belt in muay thai under UFC lightweight Felipe Silva and blue belt in jiu-jitsu, volunteered to take the empty spot. Even though Alvim had never fought in a MMA fight, he stepped into the octagon anyway, putting his skills to test, according to MMA Fighting. Even though he was absolutely throttled during the fight, Alvim managed to get to get Rufino in a triangle choke, forcing him to tap. “He took me down and landed some heavy shots, and I thought 'oh sh*t, what the f*ck am I doing here?” Alvim said. “When I locked the triangle I thought to myself, 'sh*t, I'll catch him.' I asked God 'please, don't let this round end,' and he tapped.” © Instagram/Luis Felipe Alvim Well, in just one night Alvim made his MMA debut and ended up walking away with the Fora Fight welterweight belt. Posting a picture from the fight on his Instagram, he said, “I believed all the time that I would win and went there and did. I never imagined that it would be that way, nor in my best dream. I fought well and left with that victory.” © Instagram/Luis Felipe Alvim “It is a memory that I will carry throughout my life. I want to thank God first, then my fiancée, my masters Felipe Silva and Fabiano Silva who believed in me and got me even without training properly for a fight of this size.” After winning the belt, he decided to take this already memorable night to another level. He proposed to his girlfriend right then and there in the octagon, with blood still dripping from his face. And, obviously she said yes. © Instagram/Luis Felipe Alvim Alvim told MMA Fighting: “I showed my girlfriend - my fiancée now [laughs] - the trailer of the movie 'Troy' yesterday, in which this kid tells Achilles he'd never fight a giant like Achilles was about to do, and Achilles says, 'That's why your name won't be remembered.' That stuck in my mind.” Well, winning a fight you had just gone to watch is enough for people to remember you.
  23. BARCELONA (Reuters) - No supporters were able to watch Barcelona?s 3-0 win over Las Palmas on Sunday as the game was played behind closed doors, following clashes between police and voters in Catalonia over a disputed independence referendum. Spanish riot police burst into polling stations across Catalonia, confiscating ballot boxes and voting papers to try to halt the banned referendum on a split from Spain as Madrid asserted its authority over the rebel region. Catalan officials said 337 people were injured in the crackdown. The clashes prompted Barcelona, the club of the Catalan capital, to announce the Las Palmas match would be played in front of an empty Nou Camp stadium. ?FC Barcelona condemns the events which have taken place in many parts of Catalonia today in order to prevent its citizens exercising their democratic right to free expression,? the club said on its website. ?Given the exceptional nature of events, the Board of Directors have decided that the FC Barcelona first-team game against Las Palmas will be played behind closed doors following the Professional Football League?s refusal to postpone the game.? The lack of fans in the Nou Camp, which has a capacity of 99,000, seemed not to harm Barcelona on the pitch as Sergio Busquets opened the scoring early in the second half. Top scorer Lionel Messi then struck twice to seal Barca?s seventh straight win of the Liga season which extended their lead at the top of the table to five points. Las Palmas had said earlier in the day that they would wear the Spanish flag on their jerseys for the match to support the unity of Spain. ?We decided to wear a small Spanish flag on our shirts today to display unequivocally our hope in the future of this country,? their statement said. The game was thrown into chaos when reports in the Spanish media said the club had postponed the game less than an hour before kick off, and supporters were not allowed through the Nou Camp gates. Both Las Palmas and Barcelona published their starting lineups for the game, with the announcement that the game would go ahead without supporters coming 25 minutes before kickoff. Spanish soccer federation rules state that a game can only be postponed if the police cannot guarantee the safety of spectators. If Barcelona had suspended the game without the consent of the federation, they would have automatically lost the game 3-0 and had a further three points deducted. Barcelona supporters group Grada d?Animacio, which organises the ?singing section? behind one of the goals at the Nou Camp, pledged to invade the pitch, if the game went ahead, in protest at the police crackdown. Former Barcelona captain Xavi Hernandez also condemned the police action, in a video released on social media. ?What is happening in Catalonia today is shameful,? said Xavi, who has made more appearances for Barcelona than any other player. ?It?s unacceptable that people are not allowed to vote in a democratic country. All my support goes to the people who are peacefully trying to exercise their right to vote. Long live Catalonia.?
  24. Pradip Subramaniam (L) SINGAPORE: A Singaporean bodybuilder has died after taking part in a celebrity Muay Thai kickboxing match, organisers said Sunday. The bout on Saturday was the first time Pradip Subramaniam, 32, had taken part in a kickboxing fight. He was competing against Steven Lim, a former contestant on a reality song contest known as Singapore Idol, who is also a kickboxing amateur. According to The Straits Times, Pradip appeared shaken after the match, which Lim won through a technical knock-out. He was helped out of the ring and taken to hospital where he died on Saturday evening. Pradip Subramaniam Fight organisers AFC Holding Singapore said that according to a preliminary medical report Pradip suffered "a cardiac arrest respiratory failure episode." Pradip was a last-minute replacement after singer Sylvester Lim, whom Steven Lim was originally slated to fight, pulled out due to insurance reasons. The match was part of the lineup for the inaugural Asia Fighting Championship, organised by an events company and a Singapore fitness club. Police said the incident was being investigated as an "unnatural death".
  25. KARACHI: Foreign Minister Khawaja remarked let the world match our sacrifices in the fight against terrorism on Sunday. In a social media post, Asif wrote ?This is how we fight terrorism..we sacrifice our sons to defeat terror & bring peace to our land..Let the world match our sacrifices..? With the post, he even shared the pictures of Lieutenant Arsalan Alam, who was martyred in a cross-border attack in Khyber Agency on Saturday. The 22-year-old officer was commanding a post in Rajgal Valley, which borders Afghanistan when it came under fire from the Afghan side. Alam was martyred as a result of the attack. Khawaja's controversial remark On September 5, Asif has remarked that country needs to put the house in order. Asif had said "we need to stop [banned outfits] such as Lashkar-e-Tayyaba from carrying out activities in Pakistan so we can tell orders we have put our house in order." Nisar lashes out at PM, warns against 'embarrassing Pak internationally' 'Enemy's narrative is strengthened when government officials issue public statements on internal issues,' he said Moreover, minister remarked: ?We need to tell our friends that we have improved our house. We need to bring our house in order to prevent facing embarrassment on the international level,? while speaking at Geo News programme Aaj Shahzeb Khanzada Kay Sath. This statement was endorsed by Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi. Speaking to media in London, the Pakistani premier said the foreign minister's statements regarding 'in-house cleaning' were completely true and that he agrees with the point of view that 'our own house needs to be cleaned first'. However, the statement was severely criticised by former interior minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, who said that government officials should refrain from issuing statements that reinforce the enemy's narrative and embarrass Pakistan in front of the international community. While criticising Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif?s comments, Chaudhry Nisar said ministers should not merely issue statements, but should also find solutions to issues. He added such ministers put Pakistan in jeopardy by making such statements and let foreign powers mock the country and shed their responsibilities. The former interior minister said the country should not be made a spectacle for the enemy to take advantage.
