Keerthana set to go places 16.12.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
In todays age of reliance on advanced technology, it is seemingly normal for even teenagers to be glued to the latest smartphones or tablets. Keerthana P, though, chose to be addicted to a slightly different tool, a cue stick. Things could have been different if her father wasnt an avid snooker player himself, but as fate would have it, she eventually followed in his footsteps and even began to outshine him. Off the table, Keerthana displays a calm demeanour and isnt a girl of many words, sticking to exactly what she needs to say and doing so with immense poise. But come competition time and she turns into a fierce opponent with a strong winning mentality. Making waves at the recent Junior and Sub-junior snooker/billiards championship in Bengaluru, Keerthana claimed three titles -- sub-junior snooker and billiards and junior billiards, ending a whisker away from completing a sweep of all the categories she had entered in. From winning just the solitary title in the Sub-junior girls billiards event at the ...

Bengaluru FC eye win over Chennaiyin to maintain lead 16.12.2017 deccanherald.com
Bengaluru FC will be eager to continue their winning run and consolidate their position at the top when they take on a defensive Chennaiyin FC in an Indian Super League match here tomorrow. Bengaluru have garnered 12 points by scoring 13 goals from five matches with one loss, while Chennai is placed third with nine points in five matches after having lost two matches. The hosts are coming into the game with loads of confidence as they won their last two away matches, beating NorthEast United (1-0) and Pune FC (3-1). However, Bengaluru coach Albert Roca would not take Chennai lightly as the rival team is good at scoring goals from set-piece situations. Bengaluru, who is also adept in set-piece situations, would look to test Chennai defence, especially with Miku being the cynosure of the strike force. He has scored six goals so far, two of them coming against Mumbai. Much also is expected from star striker Emiliano Alfaro and captain Sunil Chhetri, who has scored two goals this season. Roca would also like ...

Media One of India’s first woman sports journalists tells all on what it is like to be a woman on the field and the changing landscape of sports writing. sharda_ugra_tnm_1.jpg Sharda Ugra is full of stories about the world of Indian sport – the kind that you don’t get to read about or hear every day. The kind that you'd know only if you've been on the field for a long time. The kind that engages and entertains you, and transports you to a time when sportsmen were just a phone call away. On a Saturday afternoon, Sharda, who is a senior editor with Cricinfo and ESPN India, is at the Bangalore Press Club for an interactive session organised by the Network of Women in Media, India. She talks about her experiences, shares anecdotes and her views on the transformed landscape of sports journalism in India.

Miku powers dominant BFC 14.12.2017 Deccan Herald - Sports
A double strike from striker Miku helped Bengaluru FC defeat FC Pune City 3-1 after being a goal down in their Indian Super League encounter here on Thursday. Venezuelan Miku (64th minute and 78th) and skipper Sunil Chhetri (95th) starred for Bengaluru at the Balewadi Sports Complex here as the side registered their fourth win this season to cement their place at the top of points table. Adil Khan (35th minute) scored for lone goal for Pune City. Punes aggressive approach helped them take a 1-0 in the 35th minute, courtesy a stunning header from midfielder Khan, who also starred in their win against Jamshedpur FC. Spanish midfielder Marcos Tebar passed it to Issac Vanmalsawma Chhakchhuak, who in-turn gave a long cross to an unmarked Khan, who netted the ball with a header. Initially, nothing went in Bengalurus favour as their players were way off target. In the 26th minute, Chhetri shot at the right corner of the goal from a free-kick, only to be saved by the opposition keeper Vishal Kaith with a dive. ...

Rampaging Rohit hits 3rd double ton 13.12.2017 Deccan Herald - Sports

A third double century by captain Rohit Sharma (208 n.o.) spurred India to post an imposing total of 392/4 against Sri Lanka in the second ODI at the Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) stadium on Wednesday.

Rohit had two double centuries to his name -- a 264 against Sri Lanka in Kolkata, in 2014 and 209 against Australia in Bengaluru, 2013. Rohits innings came off 153 balls and included 13 boundaries and 12 sixes, after Sri Lanka elected to field.

Rohit was well assisted by Shikhar Dhawan (68) and Shreyas Iyer (88), who stroked his maiden half century.

It was also Indias highest score at the venue. The previous best was 321/9 which had come in 2007 against Pakistan.

India are trailing the three ODI series 0-1 following their seven-wicket defeat to Sri Lanka.

Opening duo paving way for Karnataka 11.12.2017 deccanherald.com
Their thorough domination of their opponents has earned Karnataka the tag of form team in this Ranji Trophy season. Their innings and 20-run victory against the mighty Mumbai in the quarterfinals was their third win by an innings. Even in their two drawn games, the eight-time champions bagged three points each thanks to huge first innings totals. The credit, for consistently laying a strong foundation for a big score, goes to the openers. Mayank Agarwal and R Samarth have been in great touch. It has been a breakthrough tournament for Agarwal, who has racked up 1142 runs to be the top run-getter. The classy Samarth has 643 runs under his belt to be seventh on the list. A good start is any teams first objective and the right-handed duos performance has been staggering. Apart from the two 250 plus stands, Agarwal and Samarth have put up a hundred and a 50-plus partnership so far. These numbers are in stark contrast to last seasons record. The combination had just one partnership above fifty runs from 10 ...

Dharma snatches win in play-off 9.12.2017 deccanherald.com
Bengaluru golfer M Dharmas aggressive approach paid off as he triumphed at the Rs 1 crore CG Open 2017 after defeating Lucknows Sanjeev Kumar in the playoffs. The two golfers headed for a playoff after being tied at the top at 16-under-264 following the regulation 72 holes were completed at the Bombay Presidency Golf Club (BPGC) here. Dharma (67-66-64-67), lying overnight tied second and two off the lead, collected three birdies on the first five holes to rise into contention early in the day. But the match almost slipped out of his hands when he double-bogeyed the 15th after an error in club selection. However, Dharma roared back with a brave bogey on the 18th to take the match into a play-off. Dharmas opponent in the play-off was Sanjeev (66-67-67- 64), who himself produced a bogey-free round of 64 that featured some brilliant chipping and long conversions. The second play-off hole (on the 18th) turned out to be decisive after both players made birdies on the first. Both players landed their drives in ...
