the polluting industry was supposed to shift out of Ludhiana after 10 years. “Our dream of ban on cow slaughter becomes a reality now”, Is that something that affects the way it is perceived? It’s very strange because some people tell me that it is perceived as an elitist sport some people tell me that ‘oh it is played in a parlour that people are drinking and it’s a recreational activity and it is played only in clubs’ If you want to play it as a recreation and see it as that then obviously no one is stopping you but at the same time do recognise the fact that we have nearly 25 other state associations that are actually active and that are hosting national and international tournaments world ranking events Asian and World Championships We have a plethora of stars and champions who actually achieve laurels for the country Not just one player there are 50 odd players who actually won medals for our country so it is highly competitive highly skillful I started at a parlour and I went to a state association to hone my skills and get serious I’ll give you an example I was in England between 2012-14 and I went to probably one of the best academies in the world because I wanted to improve further as a player so I went and I played there I played in that circuit there and it made a difference Similarly if people want to hone their skills in India they have to go to state associations whether it is in Bangalore or Bombay or in Chennai On that note do you think that India has the requisite facilities to train players Absolutely there are facilities everywhere and there are clubs as well and many people say that you have to be member of a club but there are so many clubs that offer sports memberships specifically to sportspersons who are talented in a particular sport You don’t have to become a full fledged member you can be a sports member and you can use the sports facilities I think that itself is a great step You recently lost the billiards Nationals to Siddhartha Parekh As rare as it is how do you deal with defeats I believe that wins and losses are bound to occur it’s not my birthright to win even though I maybe the overwhelming favorite and I know that expectation is always going to be there when I enter a tournament But I think I also need to be fair to my opponent I think he played exceptionally well very focussed and a couple of errors I made in the middle of the match and he punished me without giving me another chance That’s the nature of sport really you slip up you blink and before you know it’s all over While it was disappointing I think I need to go back to the drawing board and work on a few areas On the bright side this signals that there are players in India who are capable of beating the world champion People may think that Pankaj Advani is playing so it shouldn’t be a problem and even if I win they say ‘yes we expected you to do that’ but I know how tough it is I know what kind of competition I have and the fact that they are constantly improving and working hard on their game is a very good sign for sport in our country The formats also matter for example the quarterfinal that I lost it was a shorter format in billiards in that you cannot take anyone for granted because a short format is very unpredictable and even if you are the best player even if you are world champion there is no guarantee that you are going to end up winning You have to treat every opponent equally even if it s a lesser opponent and you know you are going to get many chances just the fact that you respect the game you love the game so much that you want to play your best every single time Besides its a very professional way of being a player Billiards and snooker appear to be the same for a layman but they are different sports and it must be a challenge to balance both Both billiards and snooker is played on the same table but the scoring pattern the technique the way you approach the game there is a lot of contrast Yes of course it is very tough to balance both sports because I have to change my technique when I am switching from billiards to snooker In snooker there is more tactical play in billiards there is more scoring so you have to actually be prepared for prolonged periods of concentration in billiards but in Snooker you got to go into the hit-and-run approach you take whatever you get and then you play defensive or you have to attack when you have to so they are very contrasting 999 percent of cueists specialist in only one sport and in that lies my biggest challenge – to excel in both and so far I think I haven’t done a bad job at all Preview:Rising Pune Supergiant will aim to take two crucial points in their bid to push for the Indian Premier League (IPL) playoffs as they face an inconsistent Gujarat Lions at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Puneon Monday Pune have 10 points from nine matches and have gained momentum having won three of their last four matches

Rahul Tripathi to give the team a great start The middle order comprising the likes of captain Steven Smith Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Manoj Tiwary has the experience to take the opposition bowlers to the cleaners at ease With all-rounders Daniel Christian and Rajat Bhatia the lower order batting can come in handy if needed It is not clear whether English star all-rounder Ben Stokes has overcome a shoulder injury In his absence Christian has proved to be an able replacement as far as bowling is concerned but his batting under pressure remains a question In the bowling department the young Indian pace duo of Jaydev Unadkat and Shardul Thakur has impressed both in the opening and death overs while seasoned leg-spinner Imran Tahir Christian and rookie tweaker Washington Sundar can provide the breakthroughs as well as stop the flow of runs in the middle overs Gujarat who lost to Mumbai Indians in a match decided by super over are sixth on the points table with three wins from nine games Their batsmen and bowlers are not clicking at the same match — a problem they must solve as the race for playoffs is hotting up They need to start firing on all cyclinders in order to get some wins

Their bowlers always under the blame however have vastly improved Even though Gujarat lost the game to Mumbai the way they defended a target of 154 it must give them a lot of confidence going forward Australian medium pacer Andrew Tye has been their leading light With 12 scalps from six games he is the third highest wicket-taker of this edition so far Along with him youngsters Basil Thampi and

Shah’s stranglehold of the West Indies continued on the fourth day of the second Test at Kensington Oval in Barbados on Wednesday as the leg-spinner snared six for 90 to re-open the prospect of a first-ever Test match victory at the venue for Pakistan going into the final day Despite a patient disciplined Test best of 90 from Shai Hope and a succession of half-century partnerships that raised

performer when it mattered most for Pakistan Hope appeared to have blunted the threat successfully through more than five hours of watchful batsmanship However within sight of a maiden Test hundred he drove Shah to cover where Azhar Ali held the catch that triggered the late slide Having broken an 80-run fifth-wicket partnership with Vishaul Singh Pakistan were celebrating again off the very next delivery as Singh was on his way back to the pavilion bowled off the inside edge by seamer Mohammad Abbas for 32 Three wickets fell for one run when Younis Khan held his fifth catch of the match a brilliant reflex effort at slip to remove West Indies captain Jason Holder off Shah In his farewell series like captain Misbah ul Haq Younis is now the only fielder to have taken 50 catches after the age of 35 in Test cricket “It’s about staying fit and staying sharp and expectant in the field” the 39-year-old explained “This pitch is pretty much like what we play on at home and in the UAE (United Arab Emirates) so if we play properly and concentrate we should be able to get whatever the target is on the last day” In rampant mood after the late success Shah then disposed of Shane Dowrich and Alzarri Joseph in quick succession just before the close to leave Devendra Bishoo and last man Shannon Gabriel to carry the fight for the home side into the last day With more and more questions being asked about his continued presence in the regional side given a paltry average of 1540 and a top score of 41 prior to this innings Hope went a long way in responding to the critics in a situation where the West Indies were always likely to capitulate He came to the crease in the morning after Pakistan struck an early blow when the West Indies resumed at 40 for one Mohammad Amir bowling Shimron Hetmyer before the left-hander could add to his overnight score of 22 Kraigg Brathwaite continued to bat resolutely in partnership with Hope the pair putting on 56 for the third wicket despite the varying challenges posed by the tourists’ combination of pace and wrist-spin It was Shah the more experienced of the specialist slow bowlers who provided the breakthrough when he removed the obdurate Brathwaite for 43 Fresh from a century in the first innings Roston Chase proved an able partner to Hope for the rest of the morning and then deep into the afternoon session their fourth-wicket stand
