  1. BEIRUT: Saudi Arabia´s appointment of its first female head of sports should attract more women into gyms and onto sports pitches in a nation where women are not allowed to exercise with men, female sports organisers said on Friday. US-raised Princess Reema bint Bandar last week became the first female president of the Saudi Federation for Community Sports that manages sports-related activities for both men and women in the deeply conservative Muslim kingdom, local media reported. Her appointment came amid a series of changes for women in Saudi hailed as a new progressive trend including giving women the right to drive and encouraging more women to work. But a guardianship system, under which a male family member must grant permission for a woman to study, travel and other activities, remains in place. Lina Al Maeena, who formed Jeddah United, Saudi Arabia´s first private female basketball club, in 2003, said the princess´ appointment was significant. "It´s going to be changing stereotypes because of her appointment in that role as the head of both genders," she told the Thomson Reuters Foundation from Jeddah. Female participation in sports has long been a controversial issue in Saudi where women cannot exercise with men and there are no public sports facilities for women as many conservative Muslim clerics consider sport for females as immodest. Saudi Arabia didn´t send any women to the Olympics until 2012. But this has taken its toll, with around 44 percent of women classified as obese in Saudi Arabia which has some of the world´s highest rates of obesity and diabetes. Susan Turner, chief executive of NuYu, the kingdom´s first chain of female fitness centres, said bint Bandar´s appointment would bring women´s health to the "forefront". "It´s everybody´s right to have access to these facilities and to look after their health women are realising that if they are not doing (exercise) already it is just bringing those statistics and facts to light," said Turner. According to the kingdom´s Vision 2030 reform plan, only 13 percent of the Saudi population exercises at least once a week. The plan aims to boost that number to 40 percent. Bint Bandar - daughter of a former Saudi ambassador to Washington - championed the licensing of female-only gyms and sports clubs in her previous role leading the women´s section of the national General Sports Authority. Turner said she hoped in addition to getting more women into sports her own business would benefit. "For us to be able to grow more clubs and that we can get licenses and knowing that somebody very confident and very capable is in charge of sports..it just gives us a huge amount of confidence," Turner said by phone from Riyadh. Al Maeena, who is also a member of the advisory Shura Council, said having a woman in the role would have a knock-on effect across Saudi society. "I see a lot of business opportunities, a lot of women empowerment," she said.
  2. RIYADH: A princess has been named to head a Saudi multi-sports federation, in a first for women in the conservative Muslim kingdom where men dominate all sports, an official said Saturday. The official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told AFP that Princess Rima bint Bandar bin Sultan has become "the first woman to lead a federation" covering sporting activities for men and women. In August 2016, the princess scored another first for women in Saudi Arabia when she was named by the cabinet to a senior post in the kingdom´s equivalent of a sports ministry. A daughter of a former Saudi ambassador to Washington, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, Princess Rima is a graduate in museology from an American university. Saudi Arabia does not allow women to practise sports in the public sphere and even the introduction of private sports centres for women has aroused criticism among religious conservatives in the Gulf state. Although the kingdom announced it will lift a ban on women drivers from next June as part of a reform push, it still retains tight restrictions on women and imposes a strict segregation of the sexes. Under the country´s guardianship system, a male family member -- normally the father, husband or brother -- must grant permission for a woman´s study, travel and other activities.
  3. Last month was the 10 year anniversary of this website, and I did **** all to celebrate it. Which is really the right way to celebrate a site like this. I was going to do an infographic making fun of myself, and I didn’t even do that. But I am doing something else that has something, slightly, to do with this site, I’m starting my own sports writing course. I never passed highschool, university, and also never worked at a newspaper. When I started this site I was a car park attendant, so you know, I’ve learnt a few things along the way. This scrappy little cesspool was the place I learnt how to write good like. So if you want to learn from the guy who taught himself by writing about a Kallis orgasm, you can. There are two SE London all day Saturday classes available: The 21st of October that has just had two cancellations, and thusly has a shittone of space for an intimate course where you can feel my spittle on my face as I talk. The 4th of November class is almost booked out. So you’d want to get in fast for that. There will be a course in Melbourne for late January. And more courses in the UK next year. For those who that doesn’t cover, there will also be an online course hopefully active by late November. You can register your interest for it here. The course is essentially me reverse engineering my writing, so it’s a pretty horrible look inside my brain that will hopefully explain how to be a better writer on sport. Or a sociopath. The rest of the course is from spending the last ten years talking to other aspiring writers. Answering their questions, doing reddit AMAs, dealing with the odd work experience kid, and helping out my friends. I think there are important, easy and practical things you can learn in eight hours that can help you become better. This is really the course I wish I’d taken back in the day, instead of pissing about here making fun of cricketers all the time. Anyway, do the course, don’t do the course, whatevs, I’ll be off half arsing that infographic that I’ll never finish. View the full article
  4. Saudi Arabia women attend a rally to celebrate the 87th annual National Day of Saudi Arabia in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia September 23, 2017. Photo: Reuters RIYADH: Saudi Arabia is celebrating the 87th anniversary of its foundation this weekend with a big programme of concerts and performances, including a pageant operetta on Saturday evening which allowed women to enter the King Fahd International Stadium in Riyadh for the first time. The festivities are part of a government move to boost national pride and improve quality of life for Saudis. Also on offer is a concert in the Red Sea city of Jeddah featuring 11 Arab musicians, plus fireworks, air acrobatics and traditional folk dance shows. ?It is the first time I have come to the stadium and I feel like more of a Saudi citizen. Now I can go everywhere in my country,? said 25-year-old Sultana, green and white flags painted on both cheeks as she entered the complex with her girlfriends. ?God willing, tomorrow women will be permitted bigger and better things like driving and travel.? Several thousand families entered the stadium ? where top football matches are held ? through a separate gate from single men. They cheered, flashed peace signs and waved green Saudi flags. A toddler wore a shirt that said in English ?I (heart) Saudi Arabia? while a little girl donned a green dress with the faces of King Salman and his son, Crown Prince Mohammed, printed on it. A young man recited a poem praising the 82-year-old monarch. The events are the latest entertainment sponsored by the government as part of the Vision 2030 reform programme launched two years ago to diversify the economy away from oil, create whole new sectors to employ young citizens and open up Saudis? cloistered lifestyles. However in a country that adheres to a strict brand of Islam, which bans gender mixing, concerts and cinemas, the plan?s seemingly anodyne goals to empower women, promote sports and invest in entertainment have been criticised. Saudi rulers are also starting to reform areas once the exclusive domain of the clergy, such as education and the law, and have promoted elements of national identity that have no religious component or pre-date Islam. They have increased National Day celebrations that were previously attacked by clerics as undermining religious feeling, and are promoting heritage sites, like Nabatean rock temples, once seen as embarrassing in the land of Islam. King Salman marked the holiday on Twitter, writing: ?The kingdom will remain a bulwark for those who love benevolence, their religion and their country.? Why not join the men? The operetta on Saturday told the story of the founding of the modern Saudi state by Ibn Saud, King Salman?s father, following a series of territorial conquests and eight years before the discovery of oil opened the way to making the new kingdom the world?s top oil exporter. The performance, which praised the kingdom?s religious and martial past while looking ahead to more development, featured horses, camels and hundreds of men dancing with swords and drums. An unveiled woman and two dozen girls joined them onstage. Pyrotechnics, dancing fountains and lasers elicited cheers from the crowd which snapped photos on their smartphones. The final segment featured pictures of Crown Prince Mohammed ? visiting troops, meeting world leaders, watching a football match ? whose face has become nearly as ubiquitous as his father?s since he became heir to the throne in June. Saudi Arabia women arrive to a rally to celebrate the 87th annual National Day of Saudi Arabia in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia September 23, 2017. Photo: Reuters There is widespread speculation, denied by officials, that King Salman intends to abdicate to his son, who already dominates economic, diplomatic and domestic policy. Saudi flags and green billboards, often bearing the faces of both men, have gone up across Riyadh this week, and at night skyscrapers are flooded in green light ? the national colour. Companies from telecoms operators to furniture stores have launched patriotic-themed marketing campaigns offering discounts for the holiday weekend. Um Abdulrahm al-Shihri, who travelled 1,100 km from the northwestern city of Tabuk, to enter the stadium, said she hoped in the future women would be able to attend football matches and other public festivities which are traditionally the reserve of men. ?You cannot imagine how happy we are today ... We feel that there is openness towards us,? she said, wearing the black niqab covering all but her eyes. ?Women are at all levels now ? women are now (representatives) in the Shura council, women are now doctors, women are now in big positions. So why shouldn?t we join the men in things that matter to our nation?? The General Entertainment Authority, the government agency organising the National Day festivities, expects some 1.5 million Saudis to attend events in 17 cities over four days. Vision 2030 reforms are intended to capture up to a quarter of the $20 billion currently spent overseas by Saudis, who are accustomed to travelling abroad to see shows and visit amusement parks in nearby tourist hub Dubai or further afield. This weekend?s events, though, are free to the public. Issa Daghiri, attending the operetta in Riyadh with his wife and children, said he was encouraged by the acceptance of families at the stadium, which holds about 40,000 spectators. ?We had hoped for this for a while and now the opportunity has come,? he said. ?Each year that passes, the kingdom develops.?
  5. The first posters of Sanjay Leela Bhansali?s period drama Padmavati have left the fans in awe of Deepika Padukone. In both the posters, a contemplative Deepika Padukone clad in traditional Rajasthani attire and weighed down in jewellery as Padmini, the fictitious queen of Chittor. However, a standout feature of the posters is the unibrow Deepika seems to be sporting. The movie which was supposed to be released on November 17 also got a new release date, December 1. The movie was delayed after its shooting in Jaipur was disrupted. Padmavati will bring to screen one of the most treasured Rajasthani folklore. The story pivots around Delhi ruler, Alauddin Khilji, and his siege of Chittor which a sixteenth-century poem Padmavat attribute to his obsession with Padmini. Shahid Kapoor will be seen playing the role of Queen Padmini?s husband Raja Rawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh will be seen playing the role of an antagonist, Alauddin Khijli. This is Deepika and Ranvir's third movie with director Sanjay Leela Bhansali after Ram Leela and Bajirao Mastani. Many popular faces from the fraternity shared their excitement regarding the new posters.

In this photograph taken on July 21, 2017, boxer Venkat Naik (left) with the Bahubali Boxers is punched by Maratha Yoddhas' Sandeep Singh during a Super Boxing League event in New Delhi Boxing, badminton, poker, pool ? every sport imaginable is rebranding in India as a "super" or "pro" franchise-based competition chasing a slice of an emerging billion-dollar entertainment market dominated by cricket's Indian Premier League. The star-studded Twenty20 tournament has inspired a raft of glitzy new sports leagues seeking to replicate the winning formula that recently landed India's most popular sporting event a bumper $2.55 billion broadcast deal. Earlier this month, Rupert Murdoch's Star India beat rival bids from Facebook, Sony and India's Airtel to land the IPL's TV and digital rights over five years from 2018. But long before it hit the jackpot, the IPL ? famous for its pyrotechnics, cheerleaders and huge signing bonuses ? had no trouble filling stadiums and attracting huge TV audiences a decade after its debut. Its huge success has not gone unnoticed by promoters hoping that less popular sports such as kabaddi, football and boxing can make inroads in cricket-mad India. Celebrity talent and big-name sponsors are being deployed to whip up excitement. But Bollywood superstars are not the only investors in these nascent leagues, as foreigners are attracted to the growing Indian sports market. British-Indian entrepeneur Bill Dosanjh has launched two separate leagues in a single year ? mixed martial arts and boxing The Super Boxing League, promoted by British former light-welterweight world champion Amir Khan, offers fans the spectacle of a US-style fight night: glamorous front-row attendees, referees in bow ties, big hits and a sense of real theatre.Bill Dosanjh, founder and CEO of Super Boxing League. Boxing, badminton, poker, pool -- every sport imaginable is rebranding in India as a "super" or "pro" franchise-based competition chasing a slice of an emerging billion-dollar entertainment market Bill Dosanjh, founder and CEO of Super Boxing League. Boxing, badminton, poker, pool -- every sport imaginable is rebranding in India as a "super" or "pro" franchise-based competition chasing a slice of an emerging billion-dollar entertainment market1 'Gladiators' in the ring It is "what Bollywood gives us," Dosanjh told AFP, "action or romance. It does not get much more action to see two gladiators really go at it. We really believe that these fight nights that we are doing and the league format will attract the viewer." Many pugilists put their national careers on the line signing up for the independent league. Dosanjh was forced to strike out alone after India's national boxing federation refused to endorse the tournament. But the recent success of Olympic medallist Vijender Singh on the pro circuit has boosted confidence that this maverick league could break new ground for the sport in India. "I hope boxing matches up the ongoing league fever in the country, like IPL and kabaddi," said amateur boxer Deepak Tanwar Singh. Kabaddi is a hugely-popular traditional game. "We are getting fame and money from here and in future boxers representing India in the Olympics will go from the amateur as well as the professional circuit." Many of these independent leagues are improving the quality and breadth of sport in India, and offering young hopefuls a platform to showcase their talent beyond the national fixation on cricket. India won just two medals in the Rio Olympics, despite boasting a population of 1.25 billion, and most sports heroes are still born on the cricket pitch. Money makers Sports commentator Sunil Taneja said new franchises moulded in the image of the IPL were giving rise to sports icons outside the traditional domain of cricket. They are also generating big money. Before the advent of the Pro Kabaddi League there was no money at all in the sport," Taneja, who has been associated with the Pro Kabaddi League since its inception in 2014, told AFP. In this photograph taken on July 21, 2017, boxer Venkat Naik (left) with the Bahubali Boxers is punched by Maratha Yoddhas' Sandeep Singh during a Super Boxing League event in New Delhi "Now a player like Nitin Tomar is not only a household name, but earns a handsome purse." 22-year-old Tomar made history in the latest round of player auctions in the Pro League, which is in its fifth season. The young star from a small village in India's north was scooped up for a whopping $145,000, an unprecedented signing fee in the modest world of kabaddi. The league received a major ring of endorsement in May when Chinese smartphone giant VIVO signed a five-year sponsorship deal worth nearly $50 million. Even less conventional sports are establishing pro leagues, bringing together India's best with the promise of big sign-up fees and prize money. The inaugural season of the Indian Cue Masters League, or "Cue Slam", wrapped up in August, with foreign snooker players joining local pros for a strong first showing. The "Match Indian Poker League" kicks off its first edition in October as the field for professional franchises expands ever wider. India is on track to replicate the success of professional sports franchises in other countries, said Utpal Gandhi, a senior stakeholder in Cue Slam, the Premier Badminton League and an upcoming volleyball competition. "In the United States this is a very large industry. India and Asia are following in its footsteps," Gandhi told AFP.
  7. Messi and Ronaldo joined Spanish sports stars around the world in expressing their grief after Thursday´s terror attack in Barcelona MADRID: Football icons and longtime rivals Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo joined Spanish sports stars around the world in expressing their grief after Thursday´s terror attack in Barcelona left 13 people dead. Barcelona´s most famous street Las Ramblas was packed with tourists when a van drove into the crowds, leaving scenes of carnage. "I want to send my condolences and all my support to the families and friends of the victims of the terrible attack in our beloved Barcelona, in addition to totally rejecting any act of violence," Barcelona star Messi, 30, wrote on Instagram. "We are not going to give up, there are many more of us who want to live in a world in peace, without hate and where respect and tolerance are the basis of coexistence," added the Argentine who arrived in the Catalan capital as a teenager 14 years ago. Real Madrid´s Portuguese captain Ronaldo took to social media to express his shock at the attack which also left more than 50 injured. "Dismayed at the news coming from Barcelona. All the support and solidarity (to) the family and friends of the victims," he wrote on Twitter. Like Ronaldo and Messi, other athletes took to social network in an outpouring of solidarity with the Catalan capital. "All my support for the families affected and the city," Spanish tennis ace Rafael Nadal wrote on Twitter, while his great friend, basketball player Pau Gasol, declared himself "devastated by what happened on the Ramblas in Barcelona. All my support for the victims, wounded and relatives in these difficult times." All football clubs in the Spanish first and second divisions will observe a minute´s silence in memory of the victims when the new La Liga season starts on Friday. "All clubs will pay homage to the victims and their families after the tragedy in Barcelona," Spanish league officials said in a statement. Spanish three-time world motorcycling champion Marc Marquez, also a Catalonia native, accompanied his message with an image of a circle formed with the motto "I love Barcelona" surrounding that same expression in Catalan with a big heart. From Portugal, Porto goalkeeper Iker Casillas wrote: "What sadness, all my solidarity with the victims and their families. A lot of strength Barcelona." And from Paris, a city that has also suffered similar terror outrages, Paris Saint-Germain´s Spanish coach Unai Emery was "very saddened by the news coming from Barcelona, unfortunately one more black day. All my support for the victims and their families " "No to terrorism. No to the dictatorship of fear. Stop terrorism," wrote Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos on Twitter, with the image of a broken heart. FC Barcelona took to Twitter: "Deeply saddened by the attack on our city. All our thoughts are with the victims, their families and with the people of Barcelona." Barcelona also said their players would wear black armbands in their home game against Real Betis on Sunday. Real Madrid issued an official statement expressing "its deepest sorrow regarding the attack which has taken place in the city of Barcelona and the club stands together with the victims, their families and their friends. "It also hopes for the quickest possible recovery to all those injured in the incident." Villarreal, meanwhile, decided to suspend the official presentation of Colombian striker Carlos Bacca "as a sign of mourning" for the attack. From the world of cycling, the general director of the Vuelta, which begins Saturday in the French city of Nimes, said: "We are dismayed by the dramatic attack in Barcelona and our condemnation of these events is total."

Speaking to newsmen here, Toorpakai said people casting aspersions on her make no difference to her. Pakistan's top female squash player evaded Taliban by dressing as boy At four years old Toorpakai could already see that boys had far greater freedoms and she wanted to play their games "We are soldiers of sports having our own uniform, our own style," she said, adding that she does not care about politics. Toorpakai, who happens to be former Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) member Aisha Gulalai's younger sister, came under bitter verbal attacks by several PTI leaders following Gulalai's allegations against PTI chief Imran Khan. Imran asks supporters to stop targeting Gulalai's sister PTI leaders had cast aspersions on Maria Toorpakai, Pakistan's top squash player, following Gulalai's allegations against Imran The vilification campaign against Toorpakai had also prompted Khan to ask his supporters not to target the decorated squash player. Commenting further, she welcomed the PTI chairman's tweet asking his supporters to refrain from targeting her. "I do not mind even if someone abuses me; all heroes including Imran Khan are my ideals," she said.
  9. Walt Disney Co. said Tuesday it is launching two new streaming television services including one for its ESPN-branded sports channel, while ending its deal with Netflix as it shifts towards direct content distribution. The media-entertainment giant called the move "a strategic shift in the way we distribute our content" in an industry moving to online services. Disney said in a statement it would offer a "multi-sport video streaming service" with its ESPN brand in early 2018 followed by "a new Disney-branded direct-to-consumer streaming service in 2019." The announcement coincided with Disney's boosting its stake in the streaming technology group BAMTech LLC. Disney said it would pay $1.58 billion to acquire an additional 42 percent stake in BAMTech to bring its ownership to 75 percent. The move could accelerate the trend toward "cord cutting" in which consumers drop extensive cable TV bundles in favour of streaming services such as Netflix. "The media landscape is increasingly defined by direct relationships between content creators and consumers, and our control of BAMTech's full array of innovative technology will give us the power to forge those connections, along with the flexibility to quickly adapt to shifts in the market," said Robert Iger, Disney chairman and chief executive. "This acquisition and the launch of our direct-to-consumer services mark an entirely new growth strategy for the company, one that takes advantage of the incredible opportunity that changing technology provides us to leverage the strength of our great brands." With the shift, Disney said it would end its distribution agreement with Netflix for subscription streaming of new releases, beginning with the 2019 calendar year theatrical slate. Disney will draw on its own content from its film and television catalog for its consumer channel, and offer a sports service which could fill a gap by delivering live sporting events. The new ESPN service will air some 10,000 events a year, including Major League Baseball, National Hockey League, Major League Soccer, Grand Slam tennis, and college sports. Disney, which also owns the ABC television network, said its consumer channel would include its Disney and Pixar movies and content from the Disney Channel, Disney Junior and Disney XD. The company said separately it posted a profit of $3.33 billion in the quarter ending July 1, a drop of nine percent from a year ago, on revenues unchanged from last year at $14.2 billion.
  10. Bollywood's most successful model-turned-actor, OG lover of all things ‘JISM' and the greatest advocate for wearing chappals out in public (and on the red carpet)—John Abraham—was out and about, on the streets of Mumbai, looking snatch-AF and not wearing his usual pair of go-to chappals. LOL. What got us excited about his not-so-regular appearance was his put-together-yet-messy vibe that he was pushing. Whoever has put together this look and managed to make Mr. Abraham wear a pair of classic-yet-cool lace-ups should be awarded the Nobel Sanitary prize for protecting pedicures… Can we take a minute to take a good look at this look? It's essentially what we would like to call a shirt-meets-pant-meets-belt combo, but you know, with the added personality of a ‘70s porn star's mustache a.k.a. A Motherfuc*ing Pornstache! A midnight blue button-down paired with a pair of skinny-ish jeans and monochrome lace-ups make for a perfectly-imperfect airport outfit. You know the one you must cop this summer. Yep, pretty much that! Pornstache (n) Funky looking mustache common among male porn stars. Even though it requires a person to be in an entirely different league to pull off an infamous ‘70s pornstache, Mr. Abraham is pulling it off with his superhuman level charisma and face-value. No complaints here! All images (c) Viral Bhayani

  12. A Saudi girl waves a flag during celebrations marking Saudi Arabian National Day in Riyadh on September 23 - AFP DUBAI: Rights campaigners on Thursday welcomed an "overdue" reform in Saudi Arabia to allow girls to take part in sports at state schools in the ultra-conservative kingdom. The education ministry on Tuesday said state schools for girls would offer physical education from the next academic year providing they had the facilities. "This overdue reform is absolutely crucial for Saudi girls, who have been denied their basic human right to health through exercise, joining teams, and the long-term health, economic, and education benefits of sports," Human Rights Watch's Minky Worden said. "This important step forward can advance human rights and health for women despite the daunting legal hurdles that remain in the country." Saudi Arabia has some of the world's tightest restrictions on women and is the only country where they are not allowed to drive. Under the country's guardianship system, a male family member -- normally the father, husband or brother -- must grant permission for a woman's study, travel and other activities. And women are effectively barred from sports arenas by strict rules on segregation of the sexes in public. The ministry said introducing sport classes in girls schools come as part of the kingdom's "Vision 2030" plan for economic and social reforms. Last year, Saudi Arabia appointed a princess to oversee women's sports in the kingdom. Saudi Arabia was represented by four female athletes at the 2016 Olympics, up from just two in 2012. A Saudi state school for the first time introduced sports for girls in 2014, after a consultative council recommended the ban on women in sports be scrapped.
  13. After winning the last ODI series 3-1, the Indian cricket team would have surely wanted to end their tour of the West Indies on a high. But, India's shocking nine-wicket loss in the one-off T20I in the Caribbean meant that the Windies had something to cheer for. The tour, on one hand, gave India a much-needed win in the 50-over series after a hammering in the Champions Trophy final, while it witnessed West Indies scripting a comeback to upset Virat Kohli's men in the T20 clash. But, India's outing in Caribbean undeniably gave us all a glimpse of the camaraderie between the players of the two teams. Since a majority of the West Indies cricketers ply their trade in the Indian Premier League (IPL), it wasn't really surprising to see them hanging out with the Indian stars off the field. Jamaican marauder Chris Gayle returned to his party-mode as he invited Indian batsman Yuvraj Singh to his Triple Century Sports Bar. Giving the fans a glimpse of their night-out, the Windies opener also shared photographs and a video with his fans on Instagram. The self-claimed 'Universe Boss' hailed stylish Yuvi as the 'Real Champion' in his Instagram post. Real Champion @yuvisofficial 👊🏿👍🏿 😊@triplecenturysports A post shared by KingGayle 👑 (@chrisgayle333) on Jul 11, 2017 at 4:00am PDT Yuvraj, too, took to Instagram and shared his image with Gayle while thanking him for his warm reception. "At the legends triple century bar! Thanks @chrisgayle333 for the lovely evening, you are an entertainer on and off the field," he wrote. At the legends triple century bar !

  14. India and Pakistan share an intense love for cricket, as profoundly as their deep and mutual mistrust. There is never a dull moment when the two cricket powerhouses clash on the field. The emotions run wild, tempers soar to an all-time high and cricketers turn into gladiators who find some extra motivation to fight till the end. The two cricketing giants might seem like fierce enemies on the field, but when they are off it, the cricketers from both the sides share mutual respect for each other. They are vocal about their performances before and after a crucial match and never shy away from showering praise on one another. As India prepares to lock horns with Pakistan in the ICC Champions Trophy on Sunday, a similar incident highlighting the camaraderie between the players of the two nations has once again come to light. This picture captures the soul of Ind-Pak matches. Enemies on the field. BFFs off the field.

The former Indian captain had met Sarfraz and his wife after India defeated Bangladesh. That is where the Jharkhand cricketer was clicked with Sarfraz's son Abdullah. Sarfaraz has been a great admirer of Dhoni and also idolises him. “I follow him a lot. The way he’s making a difference with wicket-keeping and batting, I try to learn a lot from him. He’s a very good cricketer for India, and I idolise him. Hope I too will be able to finish the match like him,” Sarfraz had said earlier. While the social media was witnessing a lot of tension from the fans of both the teams, the latest photo is clearly expected to calm down a few nerves. Dhoni with Junior Sarfraz Khan of Pakistan.

  15. MUMBAI: Star Sports have raised concerns with cricket´s governing body that advertisers might steer clear of the Champions Trophy if India opted against competing at the tournament in England, an official from the broadcaster has told Reuters. At last week´s International Cricket Council (ICC) meetings, the Indian board (BCCI) was outvoted 13-1 in its bid to stall a new revenue model which considerably slashes their financial share from global events in the 2015-2023 cycle. Unimpressed by the $293 million forecast, down from the $570 million it would have received under a 2014 arrangement, the BCCI responded by refusing to name a squad for the June 1-18 one-day international competition by the April 25 cutoff date. Read more: Big 3 abolished; India isolated, outvoted in ICC meeting "There is concern in the market," said the Star India official, who wished to remain anonymous, adding that the broadcaster had paid $1.9 billion for the ICC rights. "There has been no official communication from the ICC or the BCCI on India´s participation. "We have sent an email to the ICC asking how they plan to compensate us if our business is impacted due to India´s pullout. "Rupert Murdoch´s Star group owns broadcast rights for 18 ICC global events to be held during an eight-year cycle from 2015, including two 50-over World Cups, two Twenty20 World Cups and a similar number of Champions Trophy events. India´s huge market is a major draw for sponsors and advertisers, who often plan product launches around major cricket tournaments and book advertising slots in advance. The option of pulling out of the Champions Trophy by revoking the Members Participation Agreement (MPA) between the ICC and the BCCI has been gaining traction within the India board, who will discuss the issue at a special general meeting on Sunday. The operations of the BCCI are currently being supervised by four court-appointed administrators (COA), who has said it would intervene if the board took any drastic measures which might hurt Indian cricket. "It is in the interests of Indian cricket for the BCCI to continue negotiations with the ICC and other cricket boards to arrive at an amount/share that is somewhere between that envisaged under the financial model that was put in place in 2014 and that which is envisaged under the revised financial model," the COA said in an email to state associations. "It is not in the interests of Indian cricket for the BCCI to take any drastic step/measure which may result in breakdown of negotiations between the BCCI, ICC and other cricket boards, especially since there is sufficient time between now and the ICC Conference to be held in June 2017 for a negotiated outcome to be arrived at. "The top eight sides in the world rankings compete in the Champions Trophy and it remains unclear who would replace India, who won the last edition in 2013, if they decide to withdraw.
  16. Back in the day when cricket was still finding its feet, India found its very first sports icon in Major Dhyan Chand who was the driving force behind the country's gold medal finishes in field hockey at the Olympic Games (1928, 1932 and 1936). Such was his artistry with the hockey stick that he was rumoured to have been offered the rank of a General in the German army by none other than Hitler himself. His contribution to the sport has been immense with many calling him the country's biggest sports icon, even ahead of the great Sachin Tendulkar. With the calls for the prestigious Bharat Ratna to be bestowed upon the hockey wizard growing louder, his fans would surely be thrilled to know that a biopic on the Indian legend is set to unravel his success on the big screen. © Twitter And, it's only befitting to see another prominent sports icon of today's generation to play a pivotal role in the dream project. He already boasts of a biopic that hit the screens recently and his legend that echoes with Indian cricket is ever-growing. But, Mahendra Singh Dhoni is now set to revel in the role of a producer for the highly-awaited biopic on India's forgotten sports hero. According to media reports, Dhoni is believed to have acquired the rights to the film and is probably going to produce it as well. The film is also rumoured to be co-produced by Karan Johar alongside Dhoni. © Twitter The project has been in works for a long time now. The film was announced by Karan last year, but it was soon put on hold amid a few hiccups. Bollywood actor Varun Dhawan was approached to play the hockey wizard on screen but he had rejected the offer back then. If the latest reports are to be believed, Varun has not only agreed to play Dhyan Chand in the upcoming movie, but the 30-year-old is pretty excited with the new project. © Twitter As far as the director is concerned, Rahul Vaid - whose ‘Mahayoddha Rama’ bagged the National Award for Best Animated Film - is leading the race despite both Karan and Varun raising their inhibitions last year. Though there is nothing official about the project yet, the idea of one of India's biggest cricket icon teaming up with Karan Johar to co-produce Dhyan Chand's biopic surely sounds interesting.
  17. When it comes to bodybuilding, the first thought that comes in our mind is an attractive physique. If we conduct a survey, asking men why they lift weights, the following could be the possible answers: · To drop body fat · To have six packs · To pack on big muscles · To look macho in clothes · To attract girls and have better *** · To be strong in real life Myth: *** And Ejaculation Makes You Lose Strength © Thinkstock The reasons are subjective. One of the lesser talked about benefits of religious weight training is ‘better performance while having ***’. However, there has been a myth floating for ages that you should not have *** if you are into bodybuilding or any strength based sports like wrestling or so. The reason they support this statement with is that you lose strength when you ejaculate. Well, this purely idiotic! There are several research papers available today which substantiates that *** or orgasm does not lead to any strength or muscle loss. The only thing that happens immediately after *** is that the T levels drop for a VERY short span of time and then ultimately, spike back up. As a matter of fact, *** and muscle building have a very positive relation with each other. For a lowdown on how bodybuilding can affect our *** life and vice a versa, checkout these interesting facts: *** And Natural Bodybuilding 1. Muscle building and our libido, are both determined by the male *** hormone i.e. testosterone. Therefore, more the testosterone production, better the libido aka *** drive and better will be your ability to pack on muscle mass. 2. Weight training improves testosterone production. On the other hand, a sexually active individual will already have a healthy amount of testosterone floating in his body. As a result, the more sexually active you are, the better are your chances to pack on muscles. Here is an interesting study conducted by Fox Sports Network (FSN) sport science © ESPN FSN Sports Science conducted a study to determine how *** before or after a workout may affect performance. Sports Science producers sought the help of Chris Byrd, a heavyweight boxing champion who was asked to refrain from *** for whole one week. After one week, his fitness performance was scrutinized. The levels of testosterone, strength of the legs, and the punching power were also recorded. Later, Byrd was allowed to have *** and was requested to return for a performance testing after the ***. *** before workout = Better Performance At Gym Floor © Aworldofboxing According to analysis reports by FSN Sport Science, the cardiovascular health of Bryd remained constant before and just after ***. Surprisingly, the strength of his legs and punching power improved and the levels of testosterone also increased by 20%. Some experts claim that *** before workout can enhance the performance of an individual and it does not have any negative impact on strength or the hypertrophy. Well, what your take on this?
