We are here to stay: Sharda Ugra gets candid on women in sports journalism 15.12.2017 Features
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. Sharda entered the world of sports journalism over two decades ago, when it used to be an all-boys club. "I always make this joke that Tendulkar and I started off at the same time, which is true. He had his ...

‘Will she wear a saree?’ Pro-Kannada group protests against Sunny Leone’s Bengaluru show 15.12.2017 Karnataka
anti_sunny_leone_protests_750x500_krv.jpg PTI/ file image Sunny Leone’s upcoming performance in Bengaluru on New Year’s Eve has stoked controversy with a pro-Kannada group protesting on Friday, claiming that the actor doesn’t represent ‘Kannada culture’. Activists of the Karnataka Rakshana Vedike Yuve Sene, an off-shoot of the Karnataka Rakshana Vedike, demonstrated outside Manyata Tech Park with protestors wearing black ribbons, armed with brooms, burning posters featuring the actor. “This is not Kannada culture. People from other cultures are spoiling Kannada culture. The program should not happen,” Harish, an office bearer of the outfit told TNM. “We know what kind of clothes she wears and what kind of movies she acts in.”  “We have all seen what happened at MG Road and Brigade Road on December 31 last year. Bringing people like Sunny Leone to Bengaluru will only corrupt the minds of men and women, and lead them to behave inappropriately,” he said, adding, “Is it right to bring a woman, ask her to ...

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.
