Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

Shoaib Ahtar escapes unhurt after car accident

Islamabad -  Former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar escaped unhurt after his car crashed into a roadside concrete block near Prime Minister Secretariat here.

Over-speeding seems to be the cause, Geo News reported.

Shoaib Akhtar touted as one of the fastest bowlers in international cricket, made his Test debut in November 1997 and played his first One-day International four months later. The Pakistani is most famous for crossing the 100 mph barrier.

Akhtar rose to prominence in 1999 during the Asian Test Championships. He took eight wickets against India, including those of Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid off successive deliveries.

Akhtar's career has been embroiled in controversies as he was constantly dropped from the national squad with claims of poor attitude.

The Pakistani fast-bowler played 46 Tests, taking 178 wickets, while he played 163 ODI matches taking 247 wickets. He announced his retirement during the 2011 World Cup.
