FIH rejects interim settlement between HI-IHF

first_imgSports Minister Ajay Maken.The International Hockey Federation (FIH) on Friday dealt a major blow to Sports Ministry’s effort of reconciliation between Hockey India and Indian Hockey Federation by rejecting the interim “working relationship” between the two warring bodies.The FIH said that it was “surprised and disappointed” to learn about the temporary arrangement and threatened to take away the hosting rights of men’s Champions Trophy (in December) and next year’s Olympic Qualifiers from India if the situation remains the same.The world body also made it clear that it recognises only HI as the sole governing body for hockey in India.”The FIH has expressed to the Indian Sports Minister its grave concern about the ‘settlement’ recently announced between Hockey India (HI) and the Indian Hockey Federation (IHF), without prior consultation with the FIH.”It is a fundamental and non-negotiable requirement of the Olympic Charter and the FIH Statutes (and indeed of the Indian Government’s own guidelines and draft sports bill) that there can only be one governing body for a sport in each country with exclusive authority and responsibility to govern, organise national competitions and to enter national teams in international competitions,” FIH said in a statement.”The FIH recognises HI as the governing body for hockey in India. The FIH does not recognise IHF and has not done so since 2000. The FIH is therefore surprised and disappointed to learn that the proposal now is simply, as a temporary fix, to transfer governance authority in India from HI to a new ‘joint executive committee’ controlled jointly by HI and the IHF and ‘co-chaired’ by the HI and IHF presidents,” it said.-With PTI inputs advertisementlast_img read more

Dak Prescott, Cowboys push past Seahawks for wild-card win

first_imgDallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott (4) celebrates his first down near the goal line against the Seattle Seahawks during the second half of the NFC wild-card NFL football game in Arlington, Texas, Saturday, Jan. 5, 2019. (AP Photo/Ron Jenkins)ARLINGTON, Texas — Dak Prescott saw an opening up the middle, then three defenders between him and the first down.The Dallas quarterback found a way to get there, and get his first playoff victory two years after a sensational rookie season ended in disappointment.ADVERTISEMENT View comments Lesia Tsurenko upsets 2nd-seeded Naomi Osaka to reach Brisbane final Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. LATEST STORIES “This has been a special, special year,” Wilson said. “Just the growth of our team, the men in the locker room, just the way that we’ve played together, just eliminating the doubters and the things that people thought that we could only do.”Prescott, the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2016 when the Cowboys lost to Green Bay at home as the top seed in the NFC, threw for 226 yards, and his sneak for what appeared to be a clinching score because Dallas burned more than five minutes while taking 24-14 lead.But Tyler Lockett’s 53-yard catch set up a quick Seattle touchdown — Wilson’s 7-yard scoring pass to J.D. McKissic. The Seahawks got within two on their second 2-point conversion following an injury to Sebastian Janikowski.The missing kicker left the Seahawks no good options on an onside kick with 1:18 remaining. Punter Michael Dickson’s drop kick was caught by Cole Beasley at the Dallas 31, sealing the first playoff win for the Cowboys since beating Detroit in the wild-card round in the 2014 season.After Wilson ran for 4 yards for a touchdown and Mike Davis’ 2-point conversion run put Seattle up 14-10 late in the third quarter, Prescott led a 67-yard drive to put the Cowboys back in front for good.A 34-yard pass to Amari Cooper , who had seven catches for 106 yards, led to Elliott’s 1-yard plunge after an apparent touchdown by the quarterback was overturned on replay.Prescott then had a chance to give the Cowboys a 10-point lead, but K.J. Wright made a juggling interception in the end zone.Dallas’ defense came through again, though, forcing a punt and giving Elliott a highlight play before Prescott added his. The NFL rushing leader stiff-armed Shaquill Griffin on a 17-yard run to get inside the 20.Seattle got a double dose of bad news at halftime when Janikowski missed a 57-yard field goal on the final play and injured his left hamstring. He yelled as he grabbed the back of his leg and limped to the locker room, unable to return.Still, the Seahawks took their first lead basically because the 40-year-old’s injury forced them to try. LOOK: Joyce Pring goes public with engagement to Juancho Triviño Facing fourth-and-5 in Janikowski’s range from the Dallas 39, Doug Baldwin made a toe-dragging catch on the sideline for 22 yards. After Wilson’s TD run, the Seahawks pushed their lead to 14-10 on Mike Davis’ run.But the Cowboys never did lose control of the Seattle running game after allowing Chris Carson’s first career 100-yard game in a Week 3 Seattle win that turned the season for the Seahawks, who finished the regular season with six wins in seven games.Carson had just 20 yards on 13 carries. Wilson was 18 of 27 for 233 yards, with Lockett getting four catches for 120 yards. The Seahawks had 73 yards rushing after averaging 160 during the season. Dallas came in with the No. 5 rushing defense.“Once we go up, we do a pretty good job of getting ourselves back down, knowing that we’ve got to start over next week and we’ve got to be able to do it again,” linebacker Leighton Vander Esch said. “It’s a full attack mode.”INJURIESCowboys receiver Allen Hurns fractured his left ankle in a gruesome first-quarter injury. Owner and general manager Jerry Jones said after the game that Hurns was “probably in surgery at this time.” Hurns was being dragged down by Seahawks safety Bradley McDougald at the end of a 14-yard catch for a first down when his lower left leg appeared to buckle. … Seahawks cornerback Neiko Thorpe left in the first half with a shoulder injury.UP NEXTCowboys: New Orleans or the Los Angeles Rams on the road in the divisional round next weekend. SEA Games hosting troubles anger Duterte TS Kammuri to enter PAR possibly a day after SEA Games opening Leading 17-14, Prescott faced third-and-14 from the Seattle 17 with the 2-minute warning approaching. He took off up the middle on a QB draw, barged through a trio of defenders 6 yards short of the first and went down at the 1 when he was flipped head-first by Tedric Thompson.Prescott, who also had an 11-yard scoring pass to Michael Gallup in the first half, scored on the next play in the eighth win in nine games for the Cowboys.“He’s just a rare guy,” coach Jason Garrett said. “His leadership, his toughness, just his way, his spirit. It’s like none other. Somehow, some way, he’s going to figure this thing out for us.”Dallas’ defense, ranked in the top 10 most of the season, stifled the NFL’s No. 1 rushing offense and mostly kept quarterback Russell Wilson under control and handed him his first loss in four wild-card games.The Seahawks had finished the regular season with six wins in seven games to secure Wilson’s sixth playoff trip in seven years despite a roster overhaul and 0-2 start.ADVERTISEMENTcenter_img Is Luis Manzano planning to propose to Jessy Mendiola?

After chasing the heels off, the former WWE Champion Daniel Bryan asked if the crowd would like to see him team with reigns, to which they received a resounding, “Yes!”Here’s what else happened on Tuesday Night SmackDown:Chad Gable defeated Mike Kanellis via submission with the ankle lock.Shinsuke Nakamura defeated Ali via pinfall after a Kinshasa with some help from Sami Zayn.New Day defeated The B Team via pinfall with the Midnight Hour on Bo Dallas.The Kabuki Warriors defeated Fire & Desire via pinfall when Kairi Sane hit the elbow drop on Mandy Rose.The evening also saw WWE Champion Kofi Kingston give an interview where he discussed his title defense against Brock Lesnar next week on the SmackDown on FOX premiere.Furthermore, Shane McMahon threatened Kevin Owens over his lawsuit, saying he’d keep the former universal champ in court unless he decided to drop the suit and come back to WWE with a clean slate. Owens declined, instead challenging McMahon for one final match wherein he would leave WWE and drop the lawsuit if he loses. However, it was added that McMahon would be gone if he was the one who lost the match. Owens turned it into a ladder match with the legal documents hanging in a briefcase above the ring.

India sealed the series with a 143 run victory after being asked to bat first for the second time in a row.Ireland’s bowling attack had no counter to the onslaught by the Indian batsman as they managed to pile up a mammoth score of 213-4. KL Rahul and Suresh Raina were the standout performers after scoring 70 and 69 respectively.Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli failed to create an impact as both failed to reach double figures. Kohli’s move to open the innings backfired as he was dismissed for 9. Similarly, the No.4 curse for Rohit Sharma carried from the Mumbai Indians as the Hitman was dismissed for a duck.Hardik Pandya’s quickfire cameo steered India’s total to 213-5. The all-rounder managed to score 32 runs off the 9 balls he faced, scoring 4 sixes in the process.The Irish batting was in utter shambles as they had no answer to India’s disciplined bowling line-up which included debutant Siddharth Kaul.

India’s predicted XI for the third test.

first_imgAdvertisementThe action-packed test series moves to the iconic Trent Bridge at Nottingham where thetwo nations will collide in the third test of the five-match series. Both sides head into theencounter with contrasting mindsets, while the hosts have managed to find thembalanced side and resolve their issues from the opening test, the Men In Blue look jadedwith a lack of contributions from both the batting as well as the bowling unit.After their dismal show at the home of cricket, the visitors have a huge statement tomake in the upcoming series if they need to make a comeback in the series. Issues suchas the team balance would be one of the few areas that Virat Kohli and coach RaviShastri may pinpoint.With the Trent Bridge test not far away, let’s have a look at the line-up that the Bluesmay go for.1. Shikhar DhawanThis tour has been a nightmare for the openers, to say the least, and Murali Vijay’shorrible outing at Lord’s may force skipper Kohli to bring back Dhawan at the top of theorder.2. KL RahulAfter a bright display in the limited over series, the Kings XI Punjab batsman hassurprisingly faded away in the test series. The lack of choices may force India to go withRahul at the top.3. Cheteshwar PujaraDespite the run chart not pointing towards an impressive display, Pujara was solidagainst the England seamers and will get the nod to add the much-needed stability in themiddle order.4. Virat KohliThe skipper would hope for more contributions from batsman around him as the Indianbatting line-up is yet to cope up with the conditions in England.5. Ajinkya RahaneDespite going through one of the leanest patches of his career, Rahane would look tobring in confidence with a good display in Nottingham.6. Rishabh PantA below par tour for Dinesh Karthik could prove decisive for the Delhi wicket-keeperthe batsman who might get to don the whites for the first time in the senior squad.7. Hardik PandyaThe decisive need for an all-rounder might go on to secure Pandya’s place in theline-up despite not being up to the mark so far.8. Ravichandran AshwinOne of the few lone bright spots for India, Ashwin is integral to the team’s successand will be one of the first names to be fixed in the playing eleven.9. Mohammed ShamiA key member of the Indian test set-up, Shami will hope to bring the goods atTrent Bridge.10. Ishant SharmaClearly India’s most reliable seamer on the tour, the lanky pacer is expected tolead from the front to topple the deep English batting line-up.11. Jasprit BumrahHaving recovered from his finger injury, Bumrah would be raring to go in thewhites after a good showing in the South Africa tour earlier this year.Advertisementlast_img read more
