selection committee to cement his place in the Indian ODI team Raina recalled to the 50-overs format after a year will have three matches against New Zealand to convince the selectors and team management A middle-order vacancy facilitated his return as the new selection committee picked a 15-member squad for the first three matches Shikhar Dhawan’s left-thumb fracture and KL Rahul’s right hamstring injury meant that they were out of equation ensuring Ajinkya Rahane’s promotion to the opening slot The Mumbai batsman will be the first-choice opener along with Rohit Sharma while Mandeep Singh has been picked as a backup Gautam Gambhir’s name was discussed but Prasad said: “We needed continuity and we groomed Mandeep as an opener He did extremely well against Australia A Down Under” The 24-year-old Punjab batsman scored a couple of half-centuries (56 and 95) opening the innings during the 50-overs leg of ‘A’ team’s tour in Australia in August-September Before that he had a 40-ball 52 not out at a T20 international in Zimbabwe Coming back to Raina he had scored 180 runs in eight matches before he was dropped for the ODI series in Australia earlier this year In the home ODIs against South Africa that preceded the overseas assignment the left-hander had made 68 runs in five games Problems against the short ball affected Raina’s progress in Test cricket The ODI form slump took him out of his comfort zone Only 41 runs in four innings in the World T20 earlier this year attested his struggles in the shortest format as well Raina is still only 29 so it would be inappropriate to say that this is his last chance saloon But with Manish Pandey now a certainty in the 50-overs format and players like Karun Nair knocking on the door the Uttar Pradesh left-hander should embrace consistency The chief selector said Raina’s part-time spin was a reason for his recall But the player himself would certainly be happier to make an impact with his batting The BCCI had informed MS Dhoni beforehand about the continuity while asking him to attend today’s meeting Yes the selectors are still not looking beyond him as far as limited-overs captaincy is concerned India

outburst from Nick Kyrgios has commentators and critics in Australia divided over whether the tennis prodigy’s career would be better served by a harsher punishment or a reassuring hug The 21-year-old Australian was fined a total of $16500 for tanking – or showing a “lack of best efforts” –unsporting conduct and verbally abusing a spectator during a bizarre second-round exit at the Shanghai Masters Some critics wondered why it didn’t warrant a ban After rushing through a 6-3 6-1 loss to German qualifier Mischa Zverev when he failed to put any speed on some serves started walking off court at one point before the return crossed the net and was cautioned by the chair umpire about his conduct as a professional Kyrgios responded angrily to the taunt of a fan by shouting “You want to come here and play” In a post-match interview he said he didn’t care about the crowd reaction because he didn’t owe them anything It was a day after his opening win when he said he was tired and bored and didn’t really get time to savor his title-winning run in Tokyo over the weekend It’s just the latest run-in with the tennis authorities Last year he also insulted two-time Grand Slam champion Stan Wawrinka with crude remarks during a match in Montreal He received $12500 in fines as well as a suspended 28-day ban and a potential further $25000 fine if he picked up any other major offenses over the following six months His probation for that ended in February He attracted criticism for his performances at Wimbledon and at the US Open for deciding not to play at the Olympics because of a spat with an Australian team official and for firing back at retired players who have offered advice For some the unpredictable tantrums and volatile swings add an element of seat-of-your-pants entertainment to the game Tennis traditionalists tend to be scathing of the behavior All agree he’s got talent and that maybe a bit of time out would do Kyrgios no harm Jeff Bond who worked as a psychologist at the Australian Institute of Sport for 22 years said Kyrgios had earned enough that the fine likely wouldn’t deter more meltdowns “Does he care about the fine No he doesn’t” Bond told Australian Associated Press “If it was a suspension he might (care) but not a monetary fine “People who are high on self-confidence you know the `me me me’ thing are unlikely to seek support from any kind of professional unless … they’ve got their back against the wall” After a win in Shanghai Wimbledon champion Andy Murray questioned whether a fine was the best way to discipline young players “I don’t know if that stops that happening again” he said “I’m not convinced about that” University of Canberra Sports psychologist Assistant Professor Richard Keegan told AAP that it was impossible to evaluate Kygrios’ from watching him on television but it’s important to ask “Are you OK mate” That theme was echoed by commentators who said all that Kyrgios needed was time and space to work out what he wants from the game After his loss Kyrgios posted an apology of sorts on Twitter: “Not good enough today on many levels I’m better than that I can go on about excuses but there are none Sorry (hash)StillAWorkInProgress” He signed it off with emoticons of crying face and a disappointed face After the fine he posted again this time starting with emoticons of a thinking face and a face with tears of joy and added “it never ends” And later again he retweeted a quote card from the Miami Open featuring comments from No 1-ranked Novak Djokovic made during a subsequent news conference in Shanghai “Not many great things are spoken about him lately” Djokovic said “I’m sorry to hear that because I share the opinion of many players and many people in the tennis world that he’s one of the greatest talents the game has seen lately” Last week the ATP was promoting Kyrgios is its “mover of the week” after he moved up two places in the rankings to No 12 by winning in Tokyo his third title of the season Former No 1-ranked Lleyton Hewitt Australia’s Davis Cup captain said Kyrgios was showing signs of maturity and could potentially reach the highest levels of the game The spotlight got too hot it seems Veteran columnist Patrick Smith wrote in The Australian newspaper that Kyrgios should be banned for two reasons: “His welfare and the health of the game” The performance and behavior in Shanghai brought tennis into disrepute he said “as much as it has continued the destruction of a gifted young man” With the game under heavy scrutiny for corruption and spot fixing “to see Kyrgios just pop the ball over the net with the power and technique of a child having his first lesson only underlines all these concerns” Smith noted Kyrgios’ earlier comments about his fatigue and boredom “He has become a prisoner to his singular skill set” he wrote “It might have earned him nearly $5 million in prize money but it has robbed him of his youth” For all the latest Sports News download
