New Delhi: Ramesh Powar, Indian women’s cricket coach, on Wednesday admitted that his professional relationship with senior player Mithali Raj was strained as he always found her aloof and difficult to handle. On Tuesday, Mithali broke her silence on her omission from the World T20 semifinal against England and slammed Committee of Administrators’ member Diana Edulji and Powar. Mithali said while Powar humiliated her during the ICC Women’s World T20, Edulji used her position against her.On Wednesday, Powar met BCCI CEO Rahul Johri and GM (Cricket Operations) Saba Karim. He met the two Board officials at the BCCI headquarters in Mumbai.The senior-most batswoman of the Indian team, in a scathing e-mail to Johri and Karim, alleged that Powar humiliated her during the World T20 in the West Indies and she was left in tears after the axing from the team.”Ramesh admitted that his professional relationship with Mithali was strained as he always found her aloof and difficult to handle,” a BCCI source told news agency PTI on conditions of anonymity.The official added that the Indian coach insisted that Mithali’s axing from the semifinal, which India lost to England by eight wickets, was based on strategy and not acrimony.”He maintained that it was due to poor strike rate that she was dropped against England and also because the team management wanted to maintain a winning combination,” the official said.Interestingly, Powar had no answer to defend his decision when he was asked why Mithali’s strike rate didn’t come in the way of her selection for the games against Ireland and Pakistan. Mithali scored half centuries in both the games and was adjudged Player of the Match.The source said Powar denied receiving calls from anybody but claimed to be aware of one “powerful individual in the BCCI” being in touch with team manager (Trupti Bhattacharya) and tour selector (Sudha Shah).The 40-year-old Powar’s interim tenure comes to an end on Friday.(With PTI inputs) For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. read more
Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum What the Clippers are saying the day after Luka Doncic’s game-winner tied series, 2-2 “Maybe Marcus could get some of the game plan?” Rivers joked. “Or the other way? You know it’s funny — ‘the game plan’ — I always laugh. By Game 2, everybody knows the other team anyway.”“It’d be a storyline right?” Marcus said. “All media is good media.”TRICKY SCHEDULINGAfter opting to cancel the Jan. 28 game between the Lakers and Clippers in the aftermath of Kobe Bryant’s death, the NBA announced Friday that it had rescheduled four April games to put the Clippers-Lakers game back on the calendar.The game now will be played at Staples Center on April 9, and be the last of three consecutive Lakers home games. For their part, the Clippers now will play three games in four nights that week, with an April 4 home game against the Oklahoma City Thunder and another on April 7 at the Utah Jazz. The game against the Bulls, on April 6, falls on what’s typically an off-night for the NBA on account of the NCAA men’s national championship game.Rivers said there was no easy solution, but the initial decision to postpone the game was sound.Related Articles Clippers’ Paul George: ‘If I make shots, this series could be a little different’ For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory “Lawrence called me 1,000 times over the All-Star break,” said Rivers of Lawrence Frank, the Clippers’ president of basketball operations. “That’s way too much, and by the end of it I honestly I just said, ‘Yes, this is fine, let’s just play the darn game and let’s get it on.’ That’s the way I looked at it.“I thought both teams did the right thing with not playing the game. I don’t think that game was even playable in my opinion and we both knew the repercussions that it would be a tough date no matter with scheduling, it was just going to be hard. The date they came up with was the best that the league could do.” Game 4 photos: Luka Doncic, Mavs shock Clippers in overtime LOS ANGELES — Doc Rivers said, no, he would not have a problem with Marcus and Markieff Morris living together — if Markieff joins his twin brother in L.A. by signing with the Lakers, as reports indicate he is poised to once he clears waivers Sunday after agreeing to a buyout with the Detroit Pistons.Nope, no issue at all, Rivers insisted. Even if L.A.’s two NBA teams collide in the Western Conference Finals.“I wouldn’t care about that; let us be in the West Conference finals first,” Rivers said before Saturday’s 112-103 defeat to the Sacramento Kings. “I think they’ve been through a lot together — I mean they’re twins, for god sakes. Even if they didn’t live together, they would probably go to dinner every night.”Marcus Morris mentioned the possibility of rooming with his twin when asked Friday how he’d feel about his brother joining the Lakers. “That’s my brother, man,” said Marcus, who has a career record of 5-9 against Markieff — and 92-93 with him during their time together in Phoenix. “If he goes to L.A., then (shoot), I’m gonna be in Staples Center all the time. I think maybe to y’all it might be weird that I’m going to all his games, but that’s what’ll probably happen. And we’ll probably get a house together.”They’d likely even commute together to those Lakers-Clippers showdowns, Marcus said Saturday.“Probably gonna ride to the game together, that don’t bother us,” Marcus added. “We’re pros, and both of us are gonna go hard and both are gonna do the best we can do for our team. It doesn’t bother us. At the end of the day, we’re both really competitive. So for us to be together, it’s just icing on the cake.“It’ll probably be the first time where two players from two different teams are actually working out together. That’s gonna be cool.”Know what would really be cool, at least from Rivers’ perspective? Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error read more

Mario Balotelli 1 Jurgen Klopp insists he has not given any thought to the prospect of Mario Balotelli returning to Liverpool.The controversial striker was shipped out on loan to AC Milan in the summer having failed to impress under Brendan Rodgers in his first season on Merseyside.With Rodgers gone, Balotelli’s agent Mino Raiola suggested last week that his client could yet have a future at Liverpool under his successor.But Klopp, speaking ahead of the League Cup semi-final clash with Stoke on Tuesday, was in no mood to discuss the likelihood of the 26-year-old returning to Anfield next season.“At this moment I don’t have the time or capacity to think about things for next summer,” said the German.“Maybe we will have a talk but it is nothing I can think about in this moment.” read more
