Star Poster: JITU RAI



Cover Story
ICC clucking again on chucking
The ICC, at last, appears to have its heart in the right place with regard to ‘chucking.’ Yet, it has to do a lot more about a process that is porous, writes S. Dinakar.

Squash
17TH ASIAN GAMES/INCHEON 2014 - DIARY
Dipika proves a point


Pistol
17TH ASIAN GAMES/INCHEON 2014
Jitu Rai, the giant killer


Shooting
ASIAN GAMES
The day She shot herself in the foot
Shweta Chaudhary had been suffering from shooting-related neck and shoulder problems for a couple of years, but the bronze medal at the Incheon Asian Games, the best and brightest in her career, turned out to be a nice, soothing balm.

Tennis
FOCUS
The passport to non-playing captaincy!
“The team chemistry and team spirit within this team is one I have not seen since the 80s,” Anand Amritraj, the non-playing captain of the Indian Davis Cup team, tells K. Keerthivasan.

Volleyball
TRIBUTE
Finest all-rounder of his time
Udayakumar had played a key role in helping India win a bronze medal at the 1986 Asian Games in Seoul.

Badminton
FOCUS
Prannoy, the latest Tannoy for Indian badminton
“This is very special (the Indonesian title). After the 2010 Summer Youth Olympics silver, I had not won any major title. You cannot replace a title with anything. So, this is very special,” Haseena Sunil Prannoy tells V. V. Subrahmanyam.

Billiards & Snooker
INTERVIEW
A cue to raise the profile of the sport
“The general standard of snooker in India has improved, but the numbers have not been like in China where thousands play. India does not have those numbers,” says the former Asian billiards and snooker champion, Alok Kumar, in a chat with G. Viswanath.

Football
STARWATCH
Blind blends well
The Holland international, who moved to Old Trafford from Ajax on deadline day, easily slotted into the United starting XI. By Paul Hirst.
Waiting for a national call
While many players enjoy wealth and prestige at an early age, insulating them from real world concerns, Charlie Austin’s story is rather different. He has taken the long route to the top, writes Sean Cole.
KICKING AROUND
Great captain and outstanding defender
Bobby Moore was capped for England 108 times and unlike those for instance of David Beckham, who was capped so often by Fabio Capello for mere fleeting substitutions, those caps were all for 90 minutes’ play with one supreme exception. That was the World Cup final of 1966, when he skippered England to victory over West Germany in 120 minutes, including half an hour of extra-time. By Brian Glanville.
