ISL gets official recognition 28.6.2017 Deccan Herald - Sports
The Indian Super League has been finally granted official recognition by the Asian Football Confederation (AFC), meaning there will be two national leagues in the country from 2017-18. The franchise-based league didn't have AFC recognition in its first three editions, and has been trying for it for a while now. The AFC gave its consent to the All India Football Federation's proposal through a letter signed by general secretary Dato Windsor John, a top AIFF official told PTI on Wednesday. The change would mean that the winner of the I-league will participate in the AFC Champions League qualifiers, while the next ISL champion will be eligible for an AFC Cup qualifying slot. If the 2017-18 I-League winners fail to qualify — no Indian club has so far made it — they will get an automatic berth in the AFC Cup, the continent's second-tier tournament. The AFC however specified that the arrangement was a temporary one and required the stakeholders to come up with a long-term plan. The development ...

Ravi Shastri eyes post of India's head coach 27.6.2017 Deccan Herald - News
As expected, former India Team Director Ravi Shastri has decided to throw his hat into the ring to become Indian cricket team's next coach, a post that has fallen vacant following the exit of Anil Kumble. The former Team Director of the side is expected to apply for the post of the head coach in a few days. The BCCI had decided to extend the deadline till July 9, apparently to invite applications from "deserving" candidates who didn't apply earlier thinking Kumble would be an automatic choice to continue in the post. "Yes, Ravi is very interested and will be applying for the coach's post very soon," a source close to Shastri said on Tuesday. It's learnt that the former India all-rounder would apply only if he gets an assurance that he would be picked for the job with a full two-year contract till the 2019 World Cup to boot. However, Shastri has denied making such a demand. The former India captain is also expected to make sure that he gets his own team of support staff, including bowling coach Bharath ...

KAA election on hold till Oct 26.6.2017 deccanherald.com
With the administrational issues unlikely to be resolved before the scheduled date, the Karnataka Athletics Association elections could be put off till October. The elections, which were scheduled to be held at the Annual General Body Meeting (AGM) on July 1, hit a roadblock when the returning officer Ashwathaiah refused to perform his duties alleging "interference" in his work. KAA secretary Chandrashekar Rai had claimed on Saturday that the elections will not be held as planned since it was difficult for the association to bring in a new returning officer at such a short notice. Sticking to his stance on Monday, Rai said that only the AGM will be held on July 1 and the elections will not be conducted before October. Rai explained that apart from the fact that the current management can function till October according to the amended constitution of the association, many district associations are not eligible to vote as they have remained non-functional for a while. "Out of the 29 associations, only 12 ...

Flavours of joy 25.6.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
After a month-long fast, Bengalureans are celebrating 'Eid-ul-Fitr' where feasting is the order of the day. It is time to partake in the traditional festive spread and the bonhomie that is an indispensable part of the festival. After a visit to the mosque and a round of 'namaaz' in the morning on 'Eid', the Muslim community in Bengaluru treat themselves to an elaborate breakfast which usually begins with a sweet dish. Youngsters invite their friends from other communities and children eagerly wait to receive the 'Eidi' from the elders in the family. The womenfolk cook through the day, treating not only their families but also their guests, to a sumptuous feast. The idea, this year, seems to be to mix a variety of dishes in the traditional festive platter, just to add a zing to the celebrations. Shopping for new clothes and jewellery, gifting loved ones and spending time with family are the other highlights of the day. Youngsters like Aafreen Rahman, a fashion design student, also soak in all the Eid ...

'People forgot that I was an actor' 25.6.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
She made a successful transition from TV shows and movies to a cricket presenter but Mandira Bedi believes her stint as a host overshadowed her acting career. "Until the time I did cricket, I was known for the roles I played. But when cricket happened, people started to know me as a person. But people forgot that I was an actor and I was not getting any acting job," Mandira said. The actor, however, has no regrets about how her career panned out. "I have been working for 12 years. There is no frustration or regret at all. I feel blessed to have such a varied profile," she says. Mandira considers her switch to a cricket presenter as a "turning point of my life." "Cricket was a great turning point in my life. Even when I got films, I was asked to play the role of a cricket presenter or cricket commentator. The roles that I was offered were closer to being a presenter." The 45-year-old actor will be next seen in a short film titled 'The Gift' alongside Gul Panag and Kushal Punjabi and is also working in ...
