NEW DELHI: All the India-centric events and some other important events taking place during the Olympics next month will be telecast on Doordarshan National Channel.

  Sri Lanka appoint Nic Pothas as fielding coach
Posted by: nairrk - 07-29-2016 03:40 PM - No Replies

[Image: vajaeR6.jpg]
Pothas has played three ODIs for South Africa

Nic Pothas, the former South African wicketkeeper-batsman, was named Sri Lanka's fielding coach on Friday (July 29). The 42-year-old was previously Director of Cricket at Guernsey and was Leicestershire county's academy director when Sri Lanka Cricket approached to hire his services.

"We always believe in engaging the best professional advice and technical support for our national team. Fielding is an area we intend to focus strongly on," Thilanga Sumanthipala, president of SLC, said in an official statement. "We are grateful to Leicestershire County for agreeing to release Nic Pothas."

As Sri Lanka continue their rebuilding and transition phase, Sumanthipala praised the team's improvement in batting and bowling, but identified fielding as an area of concern. Pothas's appointment, according to the board president, will provide the 'necessary boost'.

"Our last few outings are showing a marked improvement in the batting and bowling both, however our fielding has been letting us down and Pothus joining the support team already in place will give the necessary boost to this important area.

"It is the focus of my administration to build Sri Lankas next world champion team. We will deploy the necessary resources and invest in the infrastructure to make this happen," Sumanthipala added.

Pothas played just three One-Day Internationals, but made 218 first-class appearances for Hampshire, scoring over 11,000 runs, taking 614 catches and effecting 45 stumpings. He will join up with the Sri Lankan squad on August 8.

  Indian men's hockey team go down 1-4 to Spain in Rio Olympics preparation match
Posted by: nairrk - 07-29-2016 09:22 AM - No Replies

New Delhi: Indian men's hockey team witnessed a disappointing start to its final preparatory campaign ahead of the Rio Olympics after it went down 1-4 to Spain in the first of the two practice games in Madrid.

For eight-time champions India, the loss against Spain couldn't have come at the right time as they give final touches to their preparation before flying directly to Rio from here in search of an Olympic medal that eluded the country for 36 years. India's last of the eight Olympic gold medals came way back in 1980.

India's lone goal last night came from the sticks of dragflicker Rupinder Pal Singh (21st minute). For Spain, Xavi Lleonart (10th, 31st) and Pau Quemada (30th, 42nd) struck the boards twice each.

The hosts started quickly off the blocks and opened the scoring in the 10th minute via Lleonart.

India's equaliser came in the second quarter from a penalty stroke which was converted by Rupinder.

Spain reinstated their lead in the final minute of the second quarter through Quemada to take a one goal lead at half-time.

After the crossover, Spain scored two more goals in the third quarter via Lleonart (31st) and Quemada (42nd) to extend their lead to 4-1 which stayed till the end.
