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.

Windies captain Sammy confident of leveling T20 series

Barbados (West Indies) - West Indies captain Darren Sammy has expressed full confidence about his team's capability to level the two-match Twenty20 series 1-1 against Australia at the Kensington Oval.

Australia beat the Windies' in last week's fifth and final one-day international to finish that series 2-2, before taking a 1-0 lead in the T20s with an eight-wicket win in St Lucia on Tuesday.

Sammy thinks his team has it in them to bounce back to avoid a series loss just like Australia did in the 50-over format.

"Australia bounced back and levelled the series and now it's our turn to do that. The confidence in the team is quite high so now we have to come back and do some more things right and hopefully we will be victorious and level the series," The Daily Telegraph quoted Sammy, as saying.

Australia is trying to win back-to-back matches on the road for the first time in their international T20 history, as they chase just their second T20 series win away from home.

They have named an unchanged team for the second Twenty20 against the West Indies at the Kensington Oval.
