Twenty20 cricket for his country Shahid Afridi Getty "I had announced that I will leave all cricket after the World Twenty20 in India but my elder family members and some friends are putting pressure

game with 91 in 90 matches but his recent form has not been good "I have to look at the results of the team in the Asia Cup and then at World Twenty20 and that will help me take a final decision We have not been doing well because we do not have quality youngsters coming up "So if I feel that the team needs me then I will continue but if I feel otherwise that I am taking place of a better player then I will leave" Pakistan lost 3-0 to England in the United Arab Emirates in November last year and 2-1 in New Zealand last month — a performance which left them in sixth position in the Twenty20

role (File) Top News After playing hardball for a day over his appointment as life president of the Indian Olympic Association Abhay Chautala seemed to soften his stand a bit as he agreed to step down if the International Olympic Committee has reservations about it Former IOA president Suresh Kalmadi who had been appointed alongwith Chautala at an AGM in Chennai on Tuesday declined the post less than 24 hours later but Chautala had remained defiant But after the sports ministry slapped a show-cause notice on IOA and announced that it will have no dealings with it till the appointments were reversed and even some IOA members expressed their displeasure the Haryana Olympic Association president seems to have relented but with conditions “I wish to thank the IOA for nominating me to the ceremonial position of Lifetime President and I have already informed the President IOA through a separate letter that if IOC is not favourably inclined to my taking over as Hon Life President after the (IOA) President has had an opportunity of discussing this matter personally with IOC I will be pleased to sacrifice my position in the best interest of Indian sports sportspersons good Governance transparency and cleanliness in India sports” Chautala who has been charge-sheeted in a disproportionate assets case said in a statement He asked IOA president N Ramachandran to meet IOC officials to sort out the matter “I am given to understand that in the AGM of Guwahati in 2015 where I was not present IOA had resolved that certain amendments which have only been made in India and are not applicable to other countries should be taken up by IOA with IOC The AGM in Chennai was informed that IOC was extremely busy with Olympics and therefore this matter could not be discussed for a period of one year “I have noted that the AGM (in Chennai) has now requested the President to take up this matter with IOC to have a complete understanding on whether people who have been chargesheeted under Indian Law for political reasons not connected with sports can be kept away from active management of sports or not The AGM has given three months’ time to the President to discuss this matter with IOC” Chautala said The Haryana strongman said he has already sacrificed once when he had to step down after his election to the post of IOA president prompted the IOC to de-recognise the Indian body He claimed that the amendment in the IOA constitution barring chargesheeted individuals from contesting elections was the handiwork of “vested interests” “I have always served sports selflessly and will do everything for promotion of sportspersons and sports Although I was elected President of IOA in 2012 I decided to sacrifice this position in 2013 when vested interests from within India were able to influence an amendment to IOA Constitution On account of this amendment I decided to relinquish the post of President IOA in the best interest of Indian Sports” Chautala claimed He highlighted the workdone during his time at the helm of the erstwhile Indian Amateur Boxing Federation and the medals won by India at the Olympics “We have very fond memories of Vijender Singh becoming the first bronze medallist in boxing in 2008 in Beijing Olympics when I was President of IABF I was also pleased that Mary Kom won a bronze medal in 2012 London Olympics Indian boxers brought laurel by winning medals in all 10 weight categories including six gold medals in CWG 2010 Indian boxers constantly won medals in almost all of the major multi–disciplinary Games and International Boxing Championships during my tenure as IABF President” Chautala also used the opportunity to take potshots at sports minister Vijay Goel who had termed the appointments “unacceptable” and asked both sports administrators to either resign or the IOA to remove them He raked up the controversy of Goel’s conduct during the 2016 Rio OLympics “I am personally aware of the conduct of the Minister of Sports at Rio Olympics where IOC had questioned the behaviour of the minister and his associates and threatened to withdraw his accreditation I do not wish to dwell more on this subject as I do not want to embarrass the minister as well as the Sports Movement in India If necessary I will brief the Prime Minister on this issue of Rio Olympics” he said Meanwhile the deadline for replying to the sports ministry’s show-cause notice expires on Friday but IOA said it will first consult IOC on the matter “The IOA president is out of the country he is in New Zealand We are not replying tomorrow on the show-cause” an IOA official was quoted as saying by PTI “Moreover we cannot directly reply to a show-cause notice like this Under the Olympic Charter the IOA enjoys autonomy and independence from government interference We will first consult with the IOC on this notice before thinking of replying” he said “Normally we would not have replied on such a notice but may do so after consultation with the IOC” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Maulshree Seth | Lucknow | Published: November 26 2015 1:36 am Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav (Source: Express photo by Vishal Srivastav) Related News AFTER A DELAY of almost a year the Uttar Pradesh government appears all set to hold its first NRI Day On January 4-5 2016 just two days before the the National Pravasi Bharatiya Divas is due to begin the Akhilesh Yadav government will likely hold the event in Agra the invitation for which are currently being sent out to the NRIs and which would cost $100 (or Rs 6500) In its attempt to woo the NRI crowd the government has planned to give away “UP Ratna” to 10 individuals all of whom hail from the state and have “done exceptionally in their respective fields” abroad Moreover the government has come up with the ‘NRI card’ By paying Rs 500 for the card an NRI can avail entry to government offices besides “priority” in getting a meeting scheduled with government functionaries Until November 25 as many as 413 NRIs have applied for the card which will be given away after the successful verification of their passports and other important details The cards will be sent over e-mail bearing a unique identification code a senior state official informed The government’s earlier attempt to hold the first NRI Day (on February 28 earlier this year) could not take off due to the lack of administrative planning “But this time we have prepared well in advance The registration process has already started and we have introduced the fee to ensure that only genuine people attend the function We are expecting about 200 NRIs’ participating at the event which would take place around the same time as Pravasi Bharatiya Divas” Sanjeev Saran Principal Secretary of the state’s NRI Department said Saran added that some of the NRIs — such as Frank Islam who hails from Azamgarh and is a known entrepreneur in USA — are being sent special invitations Islam had donated $2 million to his alma mater Aligarh Muslim University to build a management school in May this year The government’s stance towards the NRIs really took a flight in July this year when it passed an order prohibiting registration of any FIR without the prior permission or knowledge of the IG of that respective zone Additionally it has already offered them support to help find their native places if they visit the state and has now declared that it would make arrangements for them to visit their respective villages if they attend the event next year According to the government’s planning preparations are being made to showcase projects such as the Lucknow-Agra Expressway Lucknow Metro Trans-Ganga city and Poorvanchal Expressway during the event where it would also encourage the visitors to invest in their respective places of origin While the event may be coming after a year’s delay the government has always had plans to make it an annual affair on the lines of Pravasi Bharatiya Divas For all the latest Lucknow News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBerlin: A blackmailer threatened to kill the children of stricken Formula One legend Michael Schumacher unless paid 900000 euros ($1 million) The man who cannot be named has been ordered to seek psychiatric help and a German court also handed him a suspended jail sentence a fine of 4500 euros and 50 hours of community service "If the money doesn’t reach us by March 31 2016 your children will be killed in some way In Formula Four many accidents occur" wrote the 25-year-old in a chilling email to Schumacher’s wife in February 2016 A file photo of Michael Schumacher and his wife Corinna Getty Schumacher’s son Mick 18 now competes in Formula Three but was racing for a Formula Four team at the time His daughter Gina-Maria 20 has a successful riding career Police were easily able to trace the blackmailer after he included his bank details in the email to Schumacher’s wife Corinna "To put it cautiously giving your own bank account details is not sensible" judge Eberhard Hausch told a court in the city of Reutlingen The convicted man’s lawyer said his client "can’t until this day explain why" he acted as he did Schumacher 48 who won seven world titles during his racing career is recovering at his Swiss home from a serious head injury he suffered in a skiing accident in December 2013 His family and manager have given no details of his condition Former Pakistan leggie Mushtaq Ahmed once said of T20 that "For spinners this game is like chess You need to plan every move” A former backroom coach for England Mushy may have recalled those words last week as his former employers were knocked over in Bangalore by India’s Yuzvendra Chahal a man who has represented India with not only bat and ball but also with board and bishops Chahal has previously suggested his chess training helps him stay focused on the cricket field AP Chahal has previously suggested his chess training helps him stay focused on the cricket field but whether he had – or needed – a particular plan for each England batsman is unclear Eoin Morgan’s side largely sacrificed their wickets but the young spinner’s success nonetheless meant both he and his chequered history were back in focus A talent from an early age Chahal’s proficiency at chess led to him becoming national junior champion and representing India at both the World and Asian youth championships when a teenager A decade later he was precipitating one of the greatest collapses in international cricketing history On the board or on the square Chahal can certainly claim to know a thing or two about blitzes Chahal is not the only link between the two sports even if the undisputed king of Indian cricket Sachin Tendulkar once admitted that he was “largely unsuccessful” when it came to taking pieces rather than guard Given the prominence of strategy in cricket it is probably inevitable that possibly its most vaunted tactician Mike Brearley was a noted fan of chess In his book The Art of Captaincy the ex-England skipper relates how firm a grip the game could have on not just him but his teammates: "In South Africa in 1965 I was acting as twelfth man while England batted in a Test at Johannesburg Bob Barber and I happened to be in the middle of a chess game When he called me on to the field during his innings ostensibly for some dry gloves his purpose was to inform me that his next move was Queen’s pawn to QB4" With both games being played to some degree in the mind another famous captain Steve Waugh might appreciate the words of former world chess champion and inscrutable flawed sorcerer Bobby Fischer In a quote evocative of Waugh’s famous “mental disintegration” tactics the American once said of his approach to crushing opponents: “I like the moment when I break a man’s ego” That happens many times in cricket but using your opponent’s ego can also be equally effective in both disciplines Last year Magnus Carlsen retained his world chess title against Russian Sergey Karjakin but only just After being expected to win comfortably the Norwegian was frustrated by his challenger who at times employed a rope-a-dope strategy goading his opponent into being fatally over-aggressive It might be a bit unfair to compare Magnus Carlsen to Tino Best Ok it is very unfair But the same strategy was used by one of cricket’s self-proclaimed leading chess players Andrew Flintoff to lure the West Indian into one of the most notorious ego-induced dismissals in memory Flintoff might not be the first name that comes to mind when trying to think of a chess-playing cricketer but his liking for such a cerebral game fits in with his multi-faceted character For all his rumbustious post-retirement goofing around on game shows and (on the subject of rope-a-dope) in the boxing ring he is actually an adept interviewer on his BBC radio show and according to him equally adept with his chess pieces: "I played for Lancashire which is bizarre really” he told The Guardian “I had a teacher at primary school and it was almost like something out of a film where you had this school on an estate and you had these kids coming to play chess on their lunchtime" Although his brother played for England Flintoff says he turned his back on the game but with his diverse range of retirement interests we might once again see him take it up The Pedalo Gambit could make quite a catchy name for an opening strategy The love can cut both ways Nigel Short the British Grandmaster is a huge cricket fan but more intriguingly another Grandmaster from a nation not known as a bastion of willow and leather is also besotted Russian Peter Svidler who was introduced to the sport by Short after the Englishman invited him to watch the India versus Pakistan World Cup clash in 1999 is a self-confirmed cricket nut He has even used the handle “Tendulkar” to play online and once appeared in a chess tournament in Gibraltar solely because the organiser was an Australian who promised him a net session Svidler explained the appeal in an interview with the Yorkshire Chess website: “It’s my kind of game I love the slow development of a well-nuanced story From a certain point in my life it felt like home to me I will always be grateful to the English chess player Nigel Short for introducing me to cricket I would say it has made my life better It’s nice when something suddenly appears in your life which makes you happy” He is not however a fan of T20 Unsurprisingly India’s first ever Grandmaster and former world champion Viswanathan Anand also has his connections to cricket He once waded into the debate over Tendulkar playing into his forties saying the batsman should carry on “as long as he wanted” Anand also took part in an advert for computer processors where he swapped his black and whites for just whites and faced a few balls He displayed a defence which was more Afridian than Sicilian seeing him bowled many times before telling the camera you have to make the right choice in life and for your computer It wasn’t cricket and chess’s finest exchange but did again show that the two games share plenty more common ground than just Yuzvendra Chahal Then the next day,” “We are also briefing the community members about the infrastructural and developmental works

of seats "We will do an analysis of our defeat in districts where we won fewer seats We will also interact with the local people (to understand the reasons for it)" he said adding the government will
