Fresh from his title-winning exploits last week, Harshjeet Singh Sethie continued to carry that momentum forward as he seized pole position after the opening round of the IGU Yes Bank Karnataka Junior Boys Golf Championship here on Tuesday. The Delhi kid, who picked up his first title of the season last week in the Tamil Nadu Junior Boys Golf Championship, shot a fine three-under 69 at the Eagleton Golf Resort. Lurking one shot behind is the talented Kartik Sharma while Adilbir Sharma managed a 71 to stay close on the heels of the leader. Harshjeet opened the tournament with a birdie on the opening hole before dropping a bogey on the fifth hole. He immediately negated that damage with a birdie on the sixth and then took the turn at two-under with his third birdie on the eighth. Another birdie followed on the 11th but a bogey on the 12th pulled him back a bit. He then fired a birdie on the 14th and parred the remaining holes to hit the front.

Focus on scoring rate 23.5.2017 deccanherald.com
Since the start of the year, head coach of the Indian team Roelant Oltmans has underlined his vision to implement a new style, strategy and inject young blood into the team. This idea was evident in their first tournament of the year, the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup. The Indians tried to be creative, they were confident in their attacks, tried to break the air-tight defence of Australia and controlled the game in phases with smart positioning sense. Though their weak defence once again came back to haunt them, resulting in a bronze medal, Oltmans wished to look at the positives. "I think the most interesting part is seeing the side become more dominant," he said. "Every game we played, we had far more possession than our opponents, so we can dictate the game. "Before, we were a team that defended well and had counter-attacks. The biggest margin was 62 per cent in one of the games. The smallest margin was 51 to 49 per cent against Australia. That is, for me, a very good sign. "On the other hand, India is ...

Tomar's leap into the big league 23.5.2017 deccanherald.com
When Nitin Tomar took to kabaddi at school, little would he have imagined that it would catapult him into stardom.

Bengaluru keep the title winning tradition going 22.5.2017 deccanherald.com
It's been three years since Bengaluru FC's inception and since then, no season has gone by without them winning at least one title. If the first season saw them claim the I-league title on debut, in the following year they won the Federation Cup. Then in 2015-16 they once again wrapped up the league with a game to spare. So when the league didn't go according to plans in the 2016-17 season, Bengaluru had to get their hands on the Federation Cup to keep this trend going. "Not winning the league this year meant we had to turn up and deliver in the Federation cup," said midfielder Eugeneson Lyngdoh describing the emotions in the team going into the tournament. "We've made it a habit to win one trophy a season and we told ourselves that we have to keep that going. Moreover, with the league gone, only way for us to keep our hopes of playing in Asia alive was to win here, so we had to do this," he added. There was pressure. The pressure of expectation and the pressure of another year in Asia, but delivering ...

Two-hour marathon possible, says champ Korio 21.5.2017 deccanherald.com
Alex Oloitiptip Korio's ability to change pace with ease stood out as he triumphed in the TCS World 10K on Sunday. The Kenyan was feeding off pacemaker Stephen Kissa's speed until the final phase. With just over two kilometres to go, the 27-year-old switched gears and raced ahead to build a healthy lead and clinch the title. Probably this was one of the primary reasons for Nike to pick him as one of the 32 pacers in their recent attempt to break the two-hour barrier in marathon through Olympic champion Eliud Kipchoge of Kenya, Ethiopia's Lelisa Desisa and Zersenay Tadese of Eritrea at the Monza Formula One circuit in Italy. "It's was a great experience. Though Eliud (Kipchoge) couldn't go below the two-hour mark, it gave us a hope that it's possible in future," said Korio. "It was very windy that day. Probably that could be the reason why we couldn't break the magical barrier." The pacers took turns to push Kipchoge towards achieveing the goal but the Kenyan eventually fell marginally short, timing two ...

Pune take big step forward 21.5.2017 deccanherald.com
Rising Pune Supergiant gave themselves a fine opportunity to win the IPL-10 final, after restricting Mumbai Indians to a modest 129 for eight here at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium here on a steaming Sunday. It was a damp squib of a show by the multiple champions in front a capacity crowd. The Hyderabadis responded well to the first ever IPL final in their city. Having missed out on the chance to host the 2010 finale by virtue of being the champions (the now defunct Deccan Chargers) in 2009 due to violent protests here demanding a separate Telangana State, the city of pearls got this chance after Sunrisers Hyderabad annexed the title beating Royal Challlengers Bangalore in 2016. Though the local side crashed out after losing the Eliminator, not a single seat in the stadium was left unoccupied as the locals began thronging stadium hours before the start of the match, braving unforgiving heat and traffic snarls. If the road leading to Uppal was teeming with vechicles, serpentine queues at entrances ...

Over to the next innings 21.5.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Another IPL season has drawn to a close and a cricket-crazy nation has already started its countdown to the next year where the sporting extravaganza will be back in a new avatar. The tournament mostly passed off with any major glitches and while organisers and police officials are heaving a sigh of relief, fans and sports enthusiasts in the city have already started drawing up wishlists for the next year. "I would really like it to be a 10-team affair next season," says Avinash Nidsale, a professional and avid cricket fan. "Pune and Gujarat have performed well this season and people really don't want them to be disbanded. It would be great if Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Rajasthan Royals came back along with all the present teams since more teams will mean more matches and more fights to make it to the last four." For Amazon professional Shamanth Krishnappa, a better performance by the home team is what he looks forward to the most. "This season was somewhat of a disappointment for Royal Challengers ...
