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.

Tendulkar named 'Man of the Series' against Australia per IBM Social Sentiment Index

Bangalore - Sachin Tendulkar is the Man of the Series as per IBM Social Sentiment Index for the Border Gavaskar Test Series.

Ravindra Jadeja emerges as the highest trending bowler and fastest social scorer in the series. During the Border-Gavasker Test series, IBM applied advanced analytics software and natural language processing to cricket to build a social score board for the Indian Players.

 These Social scores were based on the intensity of the sentiment and volume of online conversations. Over 1.77 lakh posts across a variety of platforms including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and the blogging community were analysed during the four match series. Here are the key highlights:

Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar is the Man of the Series across social networks with a highest social score of 351.

Irrespective of his test performance, Tendulkar was the only player who was most popular among fans across all online platforms

Public sentiment revolved around his batting performance, his past records, his stature and retirement plans

Among the top performers as per the social scores, Tendulkar was followed by Dhoni and Murali Vijay as the top 3 batsmen in the series, whereas R Jadeja, R Ashwin and Harbhajan Singh were the best performing bowler.

 During the series, Dhoni the captain scored higher on social sentiment than Dhoni the double centurion

 After a 4-0 victory over Australia, his overall social score stood at 230.

Ravindra Jadeja is the highest trending bowler, having increased his social conversations 10 times since the beginning of the series. He generated over 73% more social conversations than R Ashwin, the man of series in the tournament.

Murali Vijay's social conversations are a clear reflection of his batting performance - every spectacular performance has resulted in 150 - 220% increase in the social chatter during that period.

Shikhar Dhawan's debut century in the third Test helped him sustain social conversations even in the last match where he never played. However, though Pujara's double ton in the second test had seen a rise in social conversation by 12 folds, his notable performance in the final match failed to generate similar social chatter.
