Re: Asian Games 2018, Indonesia - Jakarta Palembang 2018

We lost to them in the group stages in 2014 as well before beating them in the finals. Embarrassing for Indian Kabaddi but hopefully that will be repeated.

Srikanth with a typical choke means that we are out of the team tournament for men as well.

Apurvi with an Olympic level performance so far in qualifying.

Of course, she has never proven herself in the current era of elimination finals.

Re: Asian Games 2018, Indonesia - Jakarta Palembang 2018

In general, I agree.

That said, the top 4 finishers were the top 4 in rankings.

Re: Asian Games 2018, Indonesia - Jakarta Palembang 2018

In womens team badminton QF, Sindhu beats Yamaguchi 21-19 21-18 to give us 1-0 lead. Of course we still have a mountain to climb here. Really unlucky draw tbh. We could have beaten Thailand and Korea. Ashwini/Sikki will need to beat world #2 pair for us to have a chance here. Or hope that Vaishnavi...

Re: India in England, 2018

Now Ashwin is injured on a pitch which will get slow and England have to bat last :puke: Kohli/Shastri combo is terrible and the latter should be sacked for being inept but luck has certainly not been on our side all series. Lost every toss, played in the worst conditions in test 2, missed our 2 fro...

Re: India in England, 2018

Much better weather conditions today and so far, our batsmen (bar Pujara) have done well.

Hopefully we can get to 400, and Bumrah can rattle the English batsmen later.

Re: India in England, 2018

Bumrah should be fit which would give us a boost for the 3rd test.

If we can have England's luck with the toss and weather conditions, we might be able to compete at least.

Re: "Asia Reborn"

Thanks Peter. Unfortunately the book isn't available on Amazon outside India. I will try to fix that in the next couple of months. PKB, what do you make of China's treatment of Uighars?
