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 Malik says he is motivated to return to Pak team

Lahore - Former Pakistan captain Shoaib Malik has said he could be in contention for national selection after leading his sides to domestic one-day and Twenty20 titles.

He led Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) to the National One-day Cup title while finishing it as the leading scorer and second on the list of wicket-takers. Two weeks later, he led Sialkot Stallions to the National Super Eight T-20 Cup.

Malik was called for a fitness assessment at the National Cricket Academy.

"I know I have a lot of cricket left. The PCB knows what I am capable of and how I can make a difference by being in the team. I am fit and in the best form. There is always a bad patch in every player's life but that doesn't mean he is done with his cricket - that's not the case," he said.

Malik last represented Pakistan in the ODI series against England in UAE, but was dropped for the Asia Cup, the Daily Times reports.

"I am very motivated to try and get back into the side. There is always a time in your life when you are tested but what's important is that you stand tall and look for the best out of the worst. I have played some great match-winning knocks for the country that earned me a great reputation both on and off the field," he said.

Malik's previous comeback attempts proved to be disappointing and he failed to impress against Zimbabwe, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and England.
