hit a cricket ball and there is a talent to constantly challenge yourselfto get better every dayto focus on what is best for youto do the hard yards Voice within Sometime in the last four years Kohli realised that there was a virus within him There was a rage hidden there thatif harnessedcould propel him upwards but which was in the process of demolishing him I dont know if the voice within him told him that (the voice within always tells us the truthits only that we sometimes couldnt be bothered listening to it) or if someone grabbed him by the collar and sat him down Whatever it wasa new Kohli emerged; someone who could hit the ball very well but someone who wasat most timesin control of himself and with a better focus on life The battle with himself that Rohit was losing was the battle that Kohli was winning One dayvery soonRohit will realise that greatness is not about possessing talent but about having the discipline to summon that talent whenever needed; a lesson that young Deepika Kumari would doubtless have learnt too That is why Usain Bolt won at London; because his training allowed him to summon that outrageous talent when he wanted it to When that littleonly

Fan Zhendong won 11-5 11-9 11-811-7 against Sang Su Lee (AP Photo/Ajit Solanki) Top News Fan Zhendong didn’t move much during the point instead he pushed his Korean opponent a few feet away from the other end of the table He served early in the second game of the second men’s semi-final at the Asian Cup in Ahmedabad against world no 14 Sang Su Lee The South Korean did get his return back into play but that’s when Fan took over the rally It was a point based on brute force rather than finesse The world no 2 hammered his shot back got a reply and then powerfully drove again With each passing exchange of the six-shot rally Lee was forced to take a step back just to control the pace at which the ball came across the table — straight at him Fan didn’t break a sweat nor move a muscle as his third body shot found the Korean helplessly trying to push back only to get a thick edge The top seed from China looked firmly in command while Lee’s evasive action made him look like an amateur But that’s how it went on for most of the match that Fan won 11-5 11-9 11-8 11-7 Aged just 20 Fan has long been a feared opponent on the professional circuit Back in 2012 aged 15 he won the Junior World Championship in Hyderabad beating players three years older than him A year later he won the Poland and German Opens in succession — the latter coming after he beat the likes of two-time Olympic medallist Zhang Jike and 2012 London bronze medallist Dimitrij Ovtcharov By November 2015 he had climbed to the no 2 rank for the second time in his career and has never fallen in the charts since Hailing from Guangzhou China Fan followed the path drawn up for the development of elite players There’s no concept of academics just full-blooded table tennis The foundation programme coupled by his dedication made him one of the most proficient retrievers in the game At the same time his backhand has been rated as one of his most reliable weapons The dominance showed against Lee at the TransStadia venue as Fan rarely gave away any winners Barring his opening match defeat to Chen Chien-An in the group stage the paddler has been composed He stands close to the table to begin a point — be it serving or receiving — and lifts the sleeve of his shorts up just a fraction as he bends to get into position The routine exposes the chiselled muscles in his legs briefly before he springs into action once the ball is played At the Worlds when he and world no 1 Ma Long scripted the most gripping finals the sport has seen Though Fan lost the clash going down in the seventh game 12-10 he won four more points than the winner At the Asian Cup he knows his way around for he’s been a runner-up twice He’s in the final for the third time and will face yet another Chinese opponent — world no 29

because both of them look great together Also read |We’d be happy: Abhishek Bachchan on Bachchan family working in a film together However we have recently learned that Aishwarya might not be a part of this film and if our sources are to be believed they’ve said “Abhishek is looking out for a fresh face for the film” Our other sources have gone ahead and told us that this could be his decision

Candyman to thousands of children Veeru threatened to commit suicide via water tower if Basanti didn’t accept his suit Basanti channelled Scheherazade to dance barefoot on broken glass Jai tragically died in Veeru’s arms and finally justice was served Old Testament style (at least in the original version) The broad story beats of what is possibly the most iconic Bollywood movie of all time are familiar to anyone with even a passing acquaintance with Indian cinema But it is notable too that this “curry western” as these riffs on the spaghetti westerns made famous by the likes of Sergio Leone are called was released exactly 40 years ago today on the first I-Day after the proclamation of the Emergency Share This Article Related Article By the time the Emergency was imposed the script had already been written; the movie had been produced So the anxieties particular to those turbulent months would not have directly affected Sholay’s politics (Still the state’s censors dismayed by the victory of vigilantism and the conspicuous absence of the police in the final denouement reportedly forced reshoots upon director Ramesh Sippy) But part of the film’s enduring appeal lies in the timelessness of its themes — a barren landscape where the state is a figment the vulnerability of law and order the uncertain distance between what is legal and what is just The unspeakable violence inflicted on ordinary folk resonates across the decades because it is mirrored in the everyday experiences of lakhs of people today Yet Sholay is not merely a grim narrative about postcolonial dread and tension — indeed those threads are skilfully buried under layers of wisecracks and bombastic dialogue It is simultaneously a buddy comedy several romances an action thriller and a feudal melodrama

NewsMadrid:The return of talisman Cristiano Ronaldo to a misfiring Real Madrid cannot come soon enough team mates Marcos Llorente and Lucas Vazquez said ahead of the prolific Portuguese’s expected return to action against APOEL Nicosia on Wednesday Ronaldo has missed Real’s last four games due to a suspension for pushing a referee in the Spanish Super Cup against Barcelona Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo and teammates during training Reuters He still has one domestic game to serve of the ban but he is free to face Cypriot side APOEL as Real begin their defence of the Champions League The long ban has prevented Ronaldo from making a single competitive start this season and his comeback arrives at a time when Real need him most Zinedine Zidane’s side have suffered disappointing draws against Valencia and Levante that have left them four points off the pace behind Liga leaders Barcelona and Real Sociedad in the table “It’s clear that he’s very important to this team and has the ability to score incredible goals and that would have served us well today” said Real midfielder Llorente after Saturday’s surprise 1-1 draw against promoted Levante Real have lacked firepower in Ronaldo’s absence after selling striker Alvaro Morata to Chelsea They will be without forward Karim Benzema for around a month after the Frenchman injured his hamstring against Levante Gareth Bale was particularly wasteful on Saturday after coming on for Benzema against Levante spurning three clear chances to score Ronaldo hit top form at the business end of last season to fire Real to a Liga and Champions League double and was allowed to report back later than his team mates for pre-season training Real barely missed him as they outclassed Manchester United to win the European Super Cup although he came on as a late substitute in the 2-1 win They also comfortably saw off Barcelona in the Spanish Super Cup winning 5-1 on aggregate despite only having Ronaldo at their service for 24 out of 180 minutes The four-time world player of the year’s value to the team however has been highlighted by their struggles to put their chances away in the league “Another player who can play up front is Cristiano we’ve been without him for four games and it’s far too long” added Vazquez who scored Real’s only goal against Levante Form is a batsman’s game Or at least it’s perceived as such In cricket we rarely hear of an elite bowler slipping out of form simply as a natural consequence of being a fallible sportsman When the flow of wickets starts to dry up the first port of call is normally technical or circumstantial; the fault isput down to unhelpful surfaces or a blip in the run-up or an action to whatever degree malfunctioning Spinners are normally "found out" if only briefly in the case of Yasir Shah rather than losing their revolutions or turn or dip mysteriously For the very best batsmen however while playing away from their body falling over in the crease or exhibiting increasingly leaden feet are all symptoms of a malaise the root causes of a slump seem harder to identify Batsmen themselves are often at pains to deny there is any technical issue at play at all the notorious claim of "hitting it well in the nets" and "just getting good balls" out in the middle both commonly heard Younis Khan scored a fine double century in the fourth Test against England Getty Images The situation thus increasespressure ona batsman where a clear technical deficiency is identified such as Gary Ballance’s (now partially rectified) shuffle-back self-trap whose exploitation for both wickets and column inches was understandably substantial In the age of greater gadget-driven scrutiny batsmen’s time under the microscope grows ever greater but it is still hard to decipher why a skilled player with years of experience suddenly loses hisability to do ajob Along with the Port of Spain weather the most immediate reason for Pakistan taking the number one Test ranking was the reversalin fortunes for Younis Khan his double hundred laying the ground for Misbah’s troops to crucially level the series in England The veteran’s performances in the first three Tests were an anomaly to how we have watched him play his entire career His feet normally so unthinkingly perfect appeared under the control of some malevolent goblins His hands and forearms normally able to pacify even the most vicious of leather firearms were a frenzy of uncertainty jabbing and jutting as if their owner had simply forgotten who on earth he was It appeared almost an existential rather than technical issue reminiscent of Matthew Hayden’s final Test series in 2008-09 when the once omnipotent Brisbane bully boy was fighting himself rather than South Africa’s bowlers As with Hayden in that series Younis was conversely hanging around at the crease for long enough to prove he was out of form Both could still bat time but neither could bat Well certainly not in the sense to which we were accustomed Both faced whispers and nudges about whether they should quit Hayden did but Younis endured And after his triumphant innings in the final Test the Pakistan totem was asked about what he had done to bring about his resurgence with his answer adding to the list of unexpected ways cricketers have managed to get back on track: "I received a call before the game from India from Mohammad Azharuddin and he talked about my batting (told me to) stay in the crease" he told Michael Atherton during the presentation ceremony If you had "Chat with Azhar" at the top of your list of potential reasons for Younis’ double hundred congratulations on your foresight but for most cricket fans the ex-Indian captain’s intervention was near comically baffling Given Azharuddin’s rather checkered history it may worry some people that he even has a hotline to present Test cricketers’ hotel suites but setting that aspect aside that this particular batting overlord should be passing on nuggets of advice to another was a befuddling end to a brilliantly befuddling series In some respects the intervention of India’s former skipper to help a Pakistani batsman was a bit of a favour being returned Ahead the 2015 World Cup Mohammad Shami was struggling with his run-up and was down on pace with none other than Shoaib Akhtar coming to his technical rescue "I did have a chat with Shoaib bhai and he suggested that I reduce my big strides So I shortened my stride and it has worked It is smooth and comfortable and it has also increased my pace" the Indian pacer said Pakistan fans in particular will know that Shoaib is never short of advice for current players when he is seated in a television studio but his pearls of wisdom were nonetheless rather out of the blue Some might even consider this sort of cross-border collaboration between Indian and Pakistani players a bit unpatriotic but the great melting pot of the IPL and other T20 franchise tournaments has ensured these technical tips now flow as freely across borders as clouds At times they can also drift between players and officials While few would question Moeen Ali’s place in the England side now back before India’s tour in 2014 the off-spinner was struggling for control —the few may suggest he still does —and was advised by Ian Bell to bowl faster and straighter particularly atthe start of Tests Not
