ATK to make Lanza best-paid ISL player

Sports
PANAJI: FC Goa’s Manuel Lanzarote is set to be announced as the next big catch for ATK as the Spanish winger confirmed that he will not continue with the Goan franchise and instead seek another challenge in the ISL. The Spanish forward was Goa’s best-paid player this season with an annual contract of Rs 1.91 cr and had the option of extending his contract by another year, on his terms. Lanzarote, however, informed the franchise that he will not exercise his right to extend after falling out of favour with coach Sergio Lobera. Lanzarote has now switched allegiance to ATK who, according to sources, made him the best-paid player in ISL at the moment with a contract that exceeds the approximately Rs 3.25 cr that Bengaluru FC paid their Venezuelan striker Miku...

These concerns form a part of a detailed agenda that has been put together as the BCCI gears up for a highly assertive Special General Mee...

West Indies Too Strong For World XI In Charity Match

Sports
Sri Lanka's Thisara Perera made a fine half century, his 61 coming off 37 balls but the World XI never had any chance of winning this match after slumping to eight for four. But he was the only World XI player to score more than 12.

Jagadeesan thrilled with IPL experience

Jagadeesan thrilled with IPL experience

Sports
He is one of only two local players in Chennai Super Kings and someone who could one day take over the gloves from skipper M.S. Dhoni. But, for now, N. Jagadeesan is revelling from the experience of being part of his first IPL season with a winner’s medal around his neck. For the 22-year-old Tamil Nadu wicketkeeper-batsman, it was a chance to experience first hand what top-tier cricket is all about. Speaking about the biggest takeaway for him from the season, Jagadeesan said, “One thing I have realised is the importance of mental strength and preparation. If you lag mentally, it could cost you big time especially in the shorter formats of the game. So observing people like Dhoni and Raina closely and how they prepare was very good.” On his interaction with Dhoni, “I asked him ab...

‘Will give DDCA a new image’

Cricketers in Delhi are divided on whether to back former India player Madan Lal in his maiden quest to serve the State association as its president; or place faith in noted lawyer Vikas Singh; or give an opportunity to the panel formed by journalist Rajat Sharma. Even as the campaign intensifies, Vikas paraded his panel on Wednesday at a get-together which resembled a lawyers’ conclave. Surender Khanna, Manoj Prabhakar, Ajay Sharma and Venkat Sundaram were the prominent cricketers present. “We have the support of Virender Sehwag,” claimed Vikas. “Ours is a team of honest workers. We will give the DDCA (Delhi and District Cricket Association) a new image now that the dreadful proxy system of voting has been done away with. “Cricket will be the priority and we will leave no sto...
