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.

Watson's wait for 'much awaited' third century continues

Port of Spain (West Indies) -  Shane Watson fell between the score of 50 and 100 for the 18th time in his Test career, as his ostensible inability to convert a good start into triple figures for  Australia continued during the second Test match against the West Indies in Trinidad.

Watson fell for 56 after spending just under four hours at the crease, and his half-century knock was a patient one. He has scored just two Test centuries in 34 matches.

Australian vice-captain Watson's second Test century came in Mohali in October 2010, and since then he has passed 50 eight times before being dismissed short of a hundred.

But Watson believes his long wait for the century is not frustrating him.

"Not really to be honest. In a perfect world it would be great to be able to get another hundred but today was about being able to bat for as long as we possibly could," The Age quoted  Watson, as saying.

"It was frustrating not to be able to get another hundred but in the end it was a pretty long day to try and bat for as long as we could on a very, very slow wicket," he added.
