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.

Melbourne - Australians Ben Hilfenhaus (Hurricanes) and James Smith (Strikers) have been ruled out of the remainder of the Big Bash League (BBL) with injuries.

They will be replaced by Mark Higgs (Hurricanes) and Travis Head (Strikers), respectively, Cricket Australia (CA) announced Wednesday.

The Twenty20 BBL technical committee approved the changes to the Hobart Hurricanes and Adelaide Strikers squads.

Higgs is a former New South Wales and South Australia player who toured for Australia for an International Cricket Council (ICC) event in Kenya in 2000.

Head represented Australia at last year’s ICC Under-19 World Cup and been a regular member of South Australia’s Bupa Sheffield Shield team this summer, highlighted by a top score of 95 not out against Western Australia.

Both Higgs and Head are available for selection in their teams’ last round matches.
