Powered by Firework India bagged the silver medal in men’s doubles category of the French Open Super 750, thanks to the pair of Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty. The duo lost the finals in straight games against the top seeds Marcus Fernaldi Gideon and Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo of Indonesia by a 18-21 16-21 margin, on Sunday.Advertisement Image Courtesy: BWFBadminton.comIt took the Indonesian pair just 35 minutes to beat their opponent, who looked rather nervy from the start. But even after their failure, the Indian duo commands respect as this was the first time an Indian men’s doubles pair had reached a Super 750 final. In singles though, Kidambi Srikanth won the men’s title back in 2017 while Saina Nehwal reached the women’s final in 2012.Both Satwik and Chirag weren’t in their best shape from the beginning and allowed Marcus and Kevin to take a huge lead of 7-1 in the first game. However, the Indian shuttlers showed character, coming back to the game at 17-17 a few moments later. With the scores level, the Indonesians changed their gear and quickly finished the game with three easy points.Advertisement The second game proved to be quite tight, as Satwik and Chirag took the game to 12-12, before the winners with their continuous pressure on the Indians, took home the match by a score of 16-21.The Indian duo, ranked world no. 11 raised a few eyebrows on their way to the finals, when they defeated the reigning world champions Mohammad Ahsan and Hendra Setiawan. They also registered two stunning wins over Kim Astrup and Anders Skaarup Rasmussen the world no. 8 and Hiroyuki Endo and Yuta Watanabe, another favourites of the tournament.Advertisement Advertisementlast_img read more

Powered by Firework As the entire world has come into a standstill because of the global pandemic novel coronavirus, all the sporting events have either been postponed or cancelled across the globe. Although Cricket Australia have announced their next tournament, the International Cricket Council on Tuesday has shared some changes to playing regulations which also included COVID-19 substitutes for Test cricket and the ban of using saliva to shine the ball as well.Advertisement Image Courtesy: Reuters/BCCIThe decision came with a view to reducing the risk of the spread of the global pandemic and also ensure the safety of players and match officials whenever the game starts. Meanwhile, the Anil Kumble-led Cricket Committee had come up with several options which have now been ratified by the ICC Chief Executives’ Committee (CEC).One of the rules are – teams can ask for substitute players if in case any member(s) of the playing XI show COVID-19 symptoms during the Test. This is similarly the concussion replacements, the ICC match referee will approve a like-for-like replacement from the team. However, it will not work in white-ball cricket.Advertisement Since the saliva is banned in the game, a team will get two warnings per innings by the umpires but if they use it repeatedly then the batting side will be awarded a five-run penalty. Meanwhile, the umpires will clean the ball whenever saliva is applied to the ball. However, they have been asked to be a little easy since this thing is totally new for the players and it will take time to get used to with the new guidelines.Along with these, the ICC has also asked an extra logo in a Test match shirt for the next 12 months to woo sponsors and make up for their huge financial losses owing to the global pandemic COVID-19. “It has been done to help the members from a commercial perspective. It also gives value to sponsors,” the source addedAdvertisement Moreover, the ICC has come up with the decision to appoint neutral match officials across formats temporarily as this could give some more game time to the lesser experienced local umpires on the panel. Even the ICC has decided to allow an additional DRS review for each team in each innings of a game as well.Meanwhile, everyone is waiting for the outcome of the ICC’s virtual Board meeting tomorrow which is on June 10 as it would decide the future of the ICC T20 World Cup which is scheduled to take place later this year in Australia amongst other tournaments those are lined-up in the upcoming few months.If you like reading about MMA, make sure you check out MMAIndia.com Also, follow India’s biggest arm wrestling tournament at ProPanja.comALSO READ:Shreyas Iyer: I have ‘sealed’ number 4 spot in Indian batting orderHarbhajan Singh to begin his second innings with acting, shares movie poster Advertisementlast_img read more
