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.

Hussain says 'brilliant' Panesar deserves more England opportunities

London - Left-arm spinner Monty Panesar deserves more chances to play for England in Test cricket and he once again proved his doubters wrong with a brilliant performance in their win against India in Mumbai, according to former Test captain and cricket commentator Nasser Hussain.

"Panesar was quite brilliant in this second Test. We had all the talk about whether he should have more variations or bowl at differing paces but in this game he did what he does best: bowl quickly and get the ball to spin at pace," Hussain wrote in his column for the Daily Mail.

"In recent times Monty has only played when it has been blindingly obvious that he should, but perhaps England need to change their mind-set and play him unless it is blindingly obvious that he should not," he added.

"Sometimes we don't see what's in front of our eyes and in Panesar England have a seriously good bowler who has made a strong case for playing more often," he further wrote.

Hussain added: "Some of the deliveries he bowled to Sachin Tendulkar in particular were remarkable and for that reason I would not be too critical of the Indian batsmen."
