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.

Oz skipper awaits arrival of three key players for T20 World Cup

Oz skipper awaits arrival of three key players for T20 World CupSydney (ANI): Skipper Michael Clarke is waiting for the arrival of three key Australian players, which is hampering the team's preparations for the Twenty20 World Cup in the Caribbean.

Australia is set to play warm-up games in St Lucia against Zimbabwe on Tuesday and against the Windward Islands on Thursday.

Vice-captain Cameron White and opening bowler Shaun Tait are yet to arrive after completing commitments in the Indian Premier League.

Mike Hussey's team the Chennai Super Kings won the IPL final in Mumbai on Sunday, although he wasn't named in the playing 11.

"Michael Hussey is still not here. Shaun Tait is due to arrive today and Cameron White is on his way as well. Hopefully they get here quickly," The Sydney Morning Herald quoted Clarke, as saying.

"Those guys will be a little bit jetlagged from their flights but we're pretty fortunate they've played a bit of cricket as well. We need to use both practice games to build momentum but also to give guys who haven't played in the IPL a chance to get some cricket under their belt," he said.

Australia has been drawn in Group A to face world champions Pakistan on Sunday in St Lucia and Bangladesh in Barbados on May 5.

Australia, who made a first-round exit at the 2009 World T20 in England, are unseeded in the 12-team event to be played over 17 days, with the final in Barbados on May 16.
