The Bhupinder Singh Hooda Government has, in the past two years, directly appointed 11 deputy superintendent and inspector level officers in the state police from the pool of sportspersons who have done well at international stage.The latest is wrestler Sushil Kumar who won gold at the World Wrestling Championship in Moscow this year. The Government’s cash prizes are not only for athletes but also for coaches. Apart from this, various academies and specialised training venues have been developed.Wrestler Geeta celebrates after winning gold.”We have developed 171 rural stadiums in Haryana,” says Hooda as he watches from the gallery an all-Jat women discus team do a clean sweep. Arjun Awardees from the state also get a monthly pension of Rs 5,000.It is, of course, ironic, that in a largely feudal social system, fathers encourage their daughters to take up sports, like the 55-kg freestyle wrestling gold medalist Geeta who along with her sister, was mentored by their father. Jawaharlal Nehru University sociology professor Surinder S. Jodhka feels that the sporting culture is not alien to rural India and tribal areas.Krishna Poonia and Harwant KaurSports like archery are age-old traditions among the tribes in Jharkhand while akharas are ideal training ground for budding wrestlers in Haryana. Greater connectivity, television and phones have ensured that rural youth, both boys and girls, are at the heart of this change.Talent is all around and regional universities play a great role in harvesting them. “If we can integrate local activities with national level sports, the take-off point will soon be reached in Indian sports history,” says Jodhka.advertisement

Even as the cricket boards of India and Pakistan celebrate the resumption of cricketing ties between the two countries, the political class has been caught on the backfoot. Some of the political parties are speaking in multiple, even contradictory voices on the issue.The Congress was cautiously supportive of the move. Party spokesperson Manish Tewari said, “The matter is in the domain of the BCCI. We maintain that politics and cricket should not be mixed.”AICC general secretary Digvijaya Singh was more vociferous in his approval: “There should not be any politics in games. Cricket match(es) will help improve Indo-Pak relations.” But the party’s Maharashtra unit chief Manikrao Thakre disagreed. “The BCCI can’t take a different view from the public,” he said.The BJP’s response was lukewarm. Its spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain said: “The Pakistan cricket team had come to India earlier for the World Cup. The team of terrorists involved in the 26/11 attack should also be brought to India.”The BJP’s position appears to have been complicated by the fact that some of its leaders are involved in cricket administration. Moreover, two of the proposed venues – Delhi and Dharamsala in Himachal Pradesh – fall under state cricket associations headed by BJP leaders Arun Jaitley and Anurag Thakur.The RSS was, however, caustic in its outrage. In a long comment spread across three tweets on its twitter handle, the RSS mouthpiece Panchajanya said: “How can we have Indo-Pak match on Indian soil when perpetrators of 26/11 are being protected in Pakistan…?”advertisementThe Shiv Sena, which has been a vocal opponent of allowing Pakistani cricketers to play in India, took a similarly combative stand. “If matches are held in Mumbai, the Sena is going to oppose it,” party spokesperson Sanjay Raut said.In a rare moment of unanimity, Samajwadi Party’s Maharashtra unit chief Abu Azmi echoed the Sena’s views. “Pakistan is a culprit in Mumbai. How can we have sporting relations with them?” he asked.

Dallas had won 21 of the previous 29 meetings with the Hawks before the 10-game skid.The rematch reiterated the opposite directions both teams are headed after ending the first meeting at 2-2. The Mavericks are 13-9 since then and among the current playoff teams in the rough Western Conference. The Hawks have gone 4-19.The Mavericks played most of the second half without coach Rick Carlisle, who was ejected on two quick technicals when he thought Barnes got fouled without a call. Dallas went on a 16-5 run right after the ejection.“He got them going,” said assistant Stephen Silas, who took over for Carlisle. “His energy got them going, and I tried to continue that energy with the group. They did a really good job after Rick got thrown out of the game.”ADVERTISEMENT LOOK: Joyce Pring goes public with engagement to Juancho Triviño Harrison Barnes scored 25 points, Doncic added 24 and the Mavericks extended their home winning streak to 11 games while ending a 10-game skid against Atlanta in a 114-107 victory over the Hawks on Wednesday night.J.J.

Dorian Finney-Smith’s free throw gave Dallas its first 10-point lead, and he finished with 11 points.TIP-INSHawks: Vince Carter, Nowitzki’s former teammate also in his 21st season, got a nice ovation when he entered the game in the first quarter. The 41-year-old scored his only points on a 3 in the first quarter. … Collins had nine offensive rebounds, most by a Dallas opponent this season, in his sixth double-double.Mavericks: PG Dennis Smith Jr. missed his fourth straight game with a sprained right wrist. … Doncic was 12 of 15 from the line as Dallas attempted a season-high 43 free throws. … DeAndre Jordan had his 16th double-double with 11 points and 11 rebounds.NO DIRK YETDirk Nowitzki was inactive after being listed as questionable for the first time as the longer-than-expected recovery from left ankle surgery delays him from officially becoming the first NBA player with 21 seasons for one franchise. Carlisle said the designation meant the 40-year-old Nowitzki was getting closer to returning, but didn’t want to discuss his status further before the game.GETTING CHIPPYDoncic stared down Bazemore after the Atlanta guard blocked his shot before and after the first-half buzzer, ultimately sending the 19-year-old crashing to the floor. Players from both benches mingled as they headed to their locker rooms, with coaches and officials trying to keep them separated. There weren’t any scuffles, and officials looked at a replay before ruling there were no fouls.There were two double-technicals late in the fourth quarter. The first pair was called on Young and Jordan, with both appearing to plead with officials that they were having a friendly exchange.

Peter Odemwingie celebrates after scoring the opening goal for Nigeria Nigeria eliminated Bosnia-Herzegovina from World Cup contention with a 1-0 win over the tournament newcomers on Saturday, with Peter Odemwingie’s first-half goal getting the African champions closer to the knockout stage. Odemwingie sealed Nigeria’s first victory at a World Cup since 1998 – spanning 10 matches – by finishing from close range in the 29th minute after one of a string of powerful runs by fellow striker Emmanuel Emenike.MATCH COMMENTARY Bosnia faded after a bright start, during which star striker Edin Dzeko had a goal contentiously disallowed for offside, and is still without a point in Group F following a 2-1 defeat to Argentina in its opener.A draw would have given the Bosnians something to play for in its last group match, against Iran, but Dzeko had a shot tipped onto the post by goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama in the final few seconds, ending their hopes.Nigeria needs a point against Argentina on Wednesday to be guaranteed a spot in the Round of 16 – and a surprise win would secure top spot in the group.With Africa’s five teams starting the World Cup with just one win from their first eight matches, the continent was able to enjoy a rare success in Brazil.There had also been added motivation for Stephen Keshi’s team, which was seeking to boost the spirits of Nigerians back home in the wake of a suicide bombing attack at a World Cup viewing site in the northeast of their country. At least 14 people died in the blast.advertisementNigeria was too strong and experienced for the Bosnians, whose soft center in defense failed to deal with the power of Emenike in energy-sapping conditions in the western Brazilian city of Cuiaba.And the recall of Odemwingie, who was impressive as a substitute in the 0-0 draw with Iran, gave Nigeria an extra goal threat – demonstrated by his calm finish.Emenike powered past the tame challenge of Bosnia defender Emir Spahic and charged down the right flank before crossing for Odemwingie, who shot first-time through the legs of goalkeeper Asmir Begovic – his teammate at English club Stoke.By that stage, Bosnia-Herzegovina should have been ahead, with Dzeko finding the net in the 21st only for the goal to be ruled out for offside. Replays appeared to show Dzeko was level with the last defender.Otherwise, Dzeko’s finishing was off-key and with their star striker struggling, the Bosnians looked disheartened in the early stages of the second half.Begovic kept his team in the game with saves from Michael Babatunde and Emenike before Bosnia-Herzegovina’s late rally created a good chance, Dzeko turning his marker in a crowded penalty area and side-footing a shot that was kept out by Enyeama.Team Lineups(from):Nigeria: Vincent Enyeama; Efe Ambrose, Joseph Yobo, Juwon Oshaniwa, Kenneth Omeruo; Ogenyi Onazi, John Obi Mikel; Ahmed Musa (Shola Ameobi, 65th), Peter Odemwingie, Michael Babatunde (Ejike Uzoenyi, 75th), Emmanuel EmenikeBosnia: Asmir Begovic; Toni Sunjic, Emir Spahic; Mensur Mujdza, Haris Medunjanin (Tino-Sven Susic, 64th), Miralem Pjanic, Muhamed Besic, Izet Hajrovic (Vedad Ibisevic, 57th), Zvjezdan Misimovic, Senad Lulic (Sejad Salihovic, 58th); Edin Dzeko
Alastair Cook’s batting woes deepened when he was bowled for five as England closed day two on 43-1 in reply to India’s mammoth 457 in the first test at Trent Bridge on Thursday.Cook, averaging 25 since his last century 14 months ago, could not take advantage of a batting paradise as he shuffled too far across and exposed his leg stump to fast bowler Mohammed Shami in the fourth over of England’s first-innings reply.Fellow opener Sam Robson was 20 not out and Gary Ballance on 15 at stumps.Earlier, India tailenders Bhuvneshwar Kumar (58) and Shami (51 not out) posted career-best scores in a last-wicket partnership worth 111 runs.They frustrated England, which expected to be batting much sooner after taking four wickets for two runs swiftly after lunch to leave India on 346-9.
