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.

Indore -  Skipper Soumik Chatterjee, battling a knee injury, struck a valuable unbeaten 34 as Services beat Uttar Pradesh by five wickets on the third day of the fourth quarterfinals Tuesday and will be making their first Ranji Trophy semi-final appearance since 1967-68.

Services are the first team to book the semi-final spot while Saurashtra, Karnataka, Mumbai, Baroda, Punjab and Jharkhand battle it out in the other three quarterfinals for a place among the last four.

At the Holkar Cricket Stadium here, it was a gutsy innings by the Services captain Chatterjee after he badly injured his left knee.

Barely able to walk, Chatterjee was out in the field with Services struggling at 54 for five in the second innings while chasing a target of 113. Services made 263 in the first innings. Uttar Pradesh were bowled out for 134 in the first innings and 241 in their second essay.

Chatterjee put on a brave front and smashed Uttar Pradesh bowlers to all parts of the ground. The Army man hit five fours and two sixes during his 46-ball stay and his 62-run unbeaten stand with Rajat Paliwal (32 not out) took Services home safely.

Meanwhile, a strong bowling performance by Saurashtra helped them take a 73-run lead against Karnataka in the second quarterfinal at Saurashtra University Ground in Rajkot.

Manish Pandey hit a fine 177 as Karnataka were bowled out for 369 in the first innings in reply to Saurashtra's 469.
