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.

A 2015 Cricket WC committee still undecided on new chairman appointment following Strong’s death

Sydney - The directors of the 2015 Cricket World Cup organising committee have still not picked a successor in place of late chairman James Strong, dithering on whether to choose his New Zealand deputy or another Australian for the post.

Strong, who died on Sunday due to surgical complications, was appointed as the chairman to the committee in August 2011, after which Australian-born, New Zealand-based businessman Ralph Waters was named as his deputy, to run the tournament to be held in early 2015, the Sydney Morning Herald reports.

Although the board had held a scheduled meeting on Monday to discuss the appointment of Strong’s successor, no resolution was made on whether to appoint Waters as chairman and choose a new deputy, or make an external appointment for Strong’s post.

As the event is being held in Australia and New Zealand, organisational power is divided between the two countries.

While the World Cup committee's chief executive, John Harnden is an Australian, it has also appointed a New Zealander, Therese Walsh, to lead its planning there, the report added.
