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.

Ex-Pak player Sarfaraz questions ex-coach Waqar's commitment to national cricket

Islamabad - Former Pakistan Test player Sarfraz Nawaz has questioned the commitment of former head coach Waqar Younis to cricket, and accused him of ditching the national team to apply for the Australian bowling coach job.

Nawaz said that when Younis was needed the most by Pakistan, he left his job citing health reasons, but applied for the Australian coach job, which he could not bag.

"Then Younis started giving expert comments on different sports channels and now Waqar wants to become the director of National Cricket Academy (NCA) Lahore. How a person like Waqar could be given such an important job as his commitment with the country and cricket is doubtful," The Nation quoted Nawaz, as saying.

"I think the PCB chief is confused as he is not implementing already set criteria of domestic cricket instead he is in consultations with different persons and all set to take on board Former skippers Inzamamul Haq and Waqar Younis for improvement in domestic structure. How could Waqar and Inzamam suggest changes in domestic cricket as they both have no experience whatsoever of domestic cricket and have no knowledge of implementing modern techniques in domestic structure," he said.

Nawaz backed Zaheer Abbas' appointment as the national batting coach, saying: "Instead of Zaheer Abbas applying for the batting coach slot, the PCB should have kept in mind the services he rendered for Pakistan cricket and should have offer him the managerial slot with the national team."
