INDORE: It took off in a flash and before he knew it, the ball grazed his elbow and dropped on to the stumps. Clutching his elbow, which seemed to have been hurt, Mehidy Miraz Hasan, who had batted reasonably well for his 38 till then, trudged off as if he had been struck by a thunderbolt. Umesh Yadav had just added injury to Bangladesh’s insult! A few moments later, Bangladesh’s No. 10 Abu Jayed and No. 11 Ebadot Hossain kept running away from the stumps as Mohammad Shami looked to finish off the game. Eventually, Hossain ended the visitors’ agony when he danced down the track to loft Ravichandran Ashwin to long-on, where Yadav gleefully pouched the last man. These days, it’s normally difficult to get tailenders out this easily. As Pakistan great Javed Miandad had once said, “ Humare zamane mein tailenders West Indies ke fast bowlers se bhaagte the. Ab waise gaindbaaz nahin hai (In our time, the tailenders used to run from the West Indies pacers. Now, … [Read more...] about India vs Bangladesh, 1st Test: Visitors get bulldozed by ‘fast’ men

The India Bike Week in Goa was a celebration of the joy of bikingThe sun-kissed beaches of Calangute in north Goa's Arpora region wore an almost deserted look as Indian and foreign tourists, along with the locals, rushed to watch the thousands of bikers who had converged for the India Bike Week (IBW) 2016 on February 19 and 20. The event was not about launches and the unveiling of motorcycles. Rather, it was about motorcycle riding, of leather attires and boots, tattoos, beer, wine, loud music and, above all, the brotherhood of riding. For once the male bastion was shattered by tough, but elegantly attired, women riders on their monstrous Harley-Davidsons, Triumphs, Ducatis and Bennelis. Motorcyclists from across the world -- Australia, South Africa, Malaysia, UK and Germany -- rode into the Arpora Sporting Grounds to be part of the annual event that is beginning to grow in stature and significance. This show also owes much of its success to the Goan landscape and its people who … [Read more...] about Heavyweights roll in
Video PlayerClose CHENGDU, Nov. 17 (Xinhua) -- For hundreds of years, the hada scarf has been an essential ceremonial fabric in the daily life of Tibetans. But where did they originate from? Thousands of miles away from the Tibetan plateau, the snow-white satin is woven behind the walls of brick and wood dwellings in a small town called Ranyi in southwest China's Sichuan Province. For nearly two centuries, hada scarves have been produced there before making their pilgrimage to the Potala Palace, Tibetan Buddhist monasteries and families across the vast area of western China. It is estimated that more than 100 million hada scarves are produced every year in Ranyi. The number of permanent residents there is no more than 30,000. As far back as the 11th century, the tea-for-horse trade between Han and Tibetan people was established. The famous Tea Horse Road linking Sichuan Basin with the Tibetan plateau went by Ranyi. Tea, hada, silk and grain produced in the Sichuan Basin were … [Read more...] about Across China: Town of hada scarves weaves new thread into ancient industry
By Jaideep Vaidya The wild success of the Indian Premier League cricket tournament has spawned a number of franchise-based leagues across different sports. India now has professional leagues in hockey, football, kabaddi, tennis, badminton, wrestling, boxing, table tennis and volleyball— all enjoying varying levels of viewership, success and sponsor interest. The traditional snake boat racing in Kerala has also come under a franchise-based league backed by the state government. The latest entrant into this rich and widening offering of sporting action is a new league in motorsports, which has a small but passionate following in the country. The X1 Racing League, a project promoted by Indian racers Armaan Ebrahim and Aditya Patel, is trying to set aside the ghosts of failed motorsports projects in the country to hold races in late November and early December across two weekends at the Buddh International Circuit in Greater Noida and the Madras Motor Racing Track in Chennai. The … [Read more...] about Ready to vroom: Can an e-sports league help X1 Racing League surmount the odds?
