Sri Lanka’s performance has been so bad that its fans stopped the team bus to ask for the reason. Chief coach Nic Pothas indirectly said that everything in the team is not good. He pointed to the intervention of team manager Asanka Gurusingha.

Sri Lankan bowlers did not recover from the pressure made Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan by making an unbeaten 132 runs. Captain Kohli also scored an unbeaten 82. There will be no change in India team. Only one out of five matches have been played and Kohli has not made much changes in the team in the West Indies.

Here the situation is the same. In Dambulla, India did not bring two leg spinners or two left-handed spinners, which combined the leg break and left arm spin bowling of Yuzvendra Chahal and Akshar Patel.

One-day wicket in Sri Lanka is not worth the effort to drop three spinners. In such a situation, Kuldeep Yadav may have to stay out with Manish Pandey, Ajinkya Rahane, and Shardul Thakur.

Virat Kohli with Hardik Pandya

When India had landed in Galle with five bowlers in 2015, it kept a batsman in the last eleven. The Kohli-led team had to face defeat at that time.

Pandya’s presence gives Kohli the desired balance in the team. This all-rounder can bowl with a speed of around 140 kmph and is also capable of batting at lower order.

Kohli said, “The last time we think we might have probably lowered a batsman and the fifth bowler did not do much in the match. We have these options again but at the same time, there is also a good balance in our team. We have a hearty Pandya player who is a wicket-grabbing bowler. Whatever the match, whatever the pitch is, it has the ability to take wickets. The possibility of playing is quite good. “Kohli said that how Stuart Binny’s contributions became important in the next two Tests India won.

He said, “In the next two Tests on the 2015 tour, we played with all-rounder (Binny) and it created the whole difference. The extra batsman gave us strength. We have learned a lesson from him and instead of feeling things, we will apply these things directly to the chain this time. You need your best strike bowlers to get 20 wickets.

Need to start at different level to promote sports: Anurag Thakur

Himachal Olympics Games President Anurag Thakur

Today is the last day of the Himachal Olympiad running in Hamirpur in Himachal Pradesh. Himachal Pradesh Olympic Association (HPOA) president Anurag Thakur, who took the initiative to organize Himachal Olympics, said that India would do well in Olympics or other major competitions only if efforts will be made at different levels to promote sports in the country. By organizing these games, they have made a similar effort at their level.

Himachal Olympics Games President Anurag Thakur

He said this kind of (Himachal Olympics) efforts are needed to promote sports. We have tried to make people aware about sports by doing so. There is a lack of competitions in the country, to motivate the players for better performance, there is a need to make a lot of competition in the country.

There is a PPP (Platform, Participation, Perform) model of my game that players should be given a platform for engagement where they perform. Thakur also said that Himachal Olympics had received a great response from the people so that the players are getting motivated to play better. He said, “We will further focus on the lack of infrastructure in sports, lack of good coaches besides more shortcomings.” In the game in which the field is right, pay attention to it. Himachal will pay particular attention to those games in which Himachal can perform better.

Asked whether these games will continue to be or will prove to be a once-awaited event, Thakur said, “Surely the event will be organized, yes, how many years it will be done, that is, one year, two or four years.” For this, we will take feedback from people and HPOA will make the decision given all these things.

Asked whether Himachal Olympics will continue to happen or will prove to be a once-awaited event, Thakur said, definitely will be organized. Yes, for how many years it will be done, we will take people’s feedback. HPOA will make the decision given all these things.

Thakur said about the possibility of organizing national sports in future in Himachal Pradesh depends on the cooperation of the state government. Current administration games policies are not right. If the incoming government expresses a desire to promote games, then HPOA will make a full contribution in that. The new stadiums are built to benefit the state and its players. The Himachal Olympic Games started on 22nd June and will be concluded today. In these games, teams from all the districts of the state are participating.

virat kohli australian media

Australian media today launched a scathing attack on Virat Kohli, labelling the India captain as “classless” and “egomaniac” following his no-longer-friends comment at the end of a spiteful Test series. Virat Kohli Australian Media controversy is growing day by day.

virat kohli australian media

Australian newspapers came hard on Kohli for declaring that he no longer considers Australian players as friends after what happened in the four-match rubber, which was marred by acrimony between players of both the sides.

The Australian media also took a jibe at Kohli after India reportedly snubbed the visitors’ invitation for a beer at the end of the series which the hosts won 2-1 to reclaim the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.

“Virat Kohli had to shake hands and move on after series win but he acted like a child,” read a headline in Sydney’s ‘Daily Telegraph’, which also called Kohli an “egomaniac”. “Beergate: Kohli’s latest classless act”, another headline read.

Peter Lalor of ‘The Australian’ newspaper added: “If there were any doubts about the poor spirit between the Indian and Australian sides it was confirmed after the series when the home side shunned a suggestion the two sides drink together.”

They also compared Kohli’s behaviour with his opposite number Steve Smith, who apologised for letting his “emotions slip” during the aggressively-contested series. “All Virat Kohli had to do was say sorry. Steve Smith did,” wrote ‘Herald Sun’ journalist Russell Gould.

kane real face

Kane, whose real name is Glenn Jacobs will be running as a Republican candidate in the 2018 elections. In his 25-year-old career, Kane ha won many titles along with the three-time world championship. Kane who is called the brother of Big Show is very keen to work for the people of Knoxville.

Jacob who runs an insurance company in Knoxville with his family says, ““I think the most important thing is I care very deeply about this community, as a lot of people do.”And that’s the only reason I would consider getting into any government because I do care very deeply. And I think it’s incumbent upon people who care about the communities to try to make a difference.”

“I could live anywhere, but the reason I live in Knoxville is that I love it here, I love East Tennessee,”I love the people. I think they have great values and I believe that they have common sense. And for me, the political philosophy should reflect that – to keep Knox County a great place to live and a great place to raise a family,” he continues.

“What I’ve seen in Knox County the past several years is that taxes have remained flat because it’s a great place to live. People move here, and that helps expands the tax base,” he said.

“My political philosophy is the ‘smaller the better.’ The government should stay out of the way and let free enterprise do what it does best.” It would be interesting to see the 7-ft, 300 pounds wrestler to fight for Political Championship.
