If not for Sreejesh, the margin of defeat for India could have been higher as the Kerala custodian made innumerable number of saves to keep India in the match. (Source: AP) Goalkeeper P R Sreejesh’s magnificent effort went in vain as Olympic champions Germany scored a late goal to beat hosts India in their opening Pool B match of the Champions Trophy at a packed Kalinga Stadium. If not for Sreejesh, the margin of defeat for India could have been higher as the Kerala custodian made innumerable number of saves to keep India in the match. But an error of judgment in the final minute of the game cost Sreejesh and India, a point, as Florian Fuchs was quick to pounce on the opportunity and score the winner. Sreejesh rushed to tackle an onrushing Fuchs but he mistimed his jump and then the German striker kept his cool and turned the ball around Sreejesh before putting it into the net with a reverse hit just 34 seconds from the final hooter. It was tipped as the most high-profile match of the evening but it was the Germans, who dominated the proceedings and created chances galore. The Indians played well in patches but it was their defence, which felt the heat of continuous raids from the Germans, who had the better share of chances in the first quarter. The reigning Olympic champions earned two quick penalty corners inside the opening 10 minutes, the second of which resulted in a penalty stroke for the Germans as the umpire thought the flick struck on rushing S K Uthappa’s hand. The Indians immediately objected and went for the referral which they won. In the final minute of the opening quarter India got a golden chance to take the lead when they earned their first penalty corner of the match but Gurjinder Singh’s grounded flick was saved by Nicolas Jacobi in the German goal. The two teams kept up the pace and created chances in the second quarter but it was Germany who had the better share of exchanges. Sreejesh lived upto his reputation and denied the Germans on at least two occasions in the second quarter. He first denied Christopher Ruhr’s try before he kept at bay Martin Zwicker’s forehand shot from top of the circle in the 25th minute to keep a clean slate at the breather. The Germans came out attacking after the change of ends and secured their third penalty corner soon but once again they found a rock in front of Indian goal in Sreejesh. The Indian custodian made an acrobatic save to keep away Moritz Furste’s powerful high drag-flick. India mounted some good attacks but their forwards, especially Ramandeep Singh and Nikkin Thimmaiah fizzled out once inside the striking circle. Both the strikers looked poor in their anticipation and reflex. Sardar too had a chance to break his goal drought when Dharamvir Singh’s pass found him alone inside the circle but the Indian skipper failed to gather the ball with an onrushing German goalie Jacobi in front of him. Then it was Akashdeep’s turn to waste another chance as he failed to connect his reverse shot from a SV Sunil pass from the right flank. Sreejesh was definitely the centre of attraction in front of Indian goal as he came to his side’s rescue for the umpteenth time in the match. He first padded away Pit Arnold’s shot and then dived to his right to keep out captain Tobias Hauke’s try from Germany’s fourth penalty corner. But Sreejesh’s efforts went up in smoke when Fuchs scored the goal in the dying minutes to break the hearts of the capacity crowd. India will next play Argentina tomorrow, while Germany will be up against the Netherlands. Meanwhile, World No 2 and World Cup silver medalists the Netherlands outclassed Argentina 3-0 in another Pool B encounter earlier in the day. The Netherlands earned as many as five penalty corners in the first quarter but could convert only one occasion when Mink van der Weerden’s drag-flick found the net in the 12 minute. The Argentines, who surprised everyone by clinching the bronze medal at the Hockey World Cup at The Hague earlier this year, also had their chances in the match only to see them go in drain. The Dutch doubled their lead in the second quarter when Robbert Kemperman (19th), better known back home as Mr. Backhand, converted a beautiful pass from Sander Baart with a reverse shot. With 11 minutes from the hooter Diede van Puffelen scored the maiden goal of his senior international career to hand the Netherlands a convincing victory.

Controversial Noida Authority official Yadav Singh, accused of amassing illegal wealth, has come under the scanner of the Special Investigation Team (SIT) on blackmoney as it on Saturday asked the CBDT to share information with ED so that money laundering charges could be pressed against him and his associates. SIT Chairman Justice (retd) M B Shah and Vice-Chairman Justice (retd) Arijit Pasayat held a meeting and reviewed the case with CBDT officials led by Chairperson Anita Kapur and I-T officers from the investigations directorate in Lucknow who had carried out extensive raids last month on Singh’s premises and a number of companies with which his wife is believed to be associated with. After the meeting, the SIT asked the Director General (I-T investigations) Lucknow to share information of this case with the Enforcement Directorate so that Yadav could also be investigated under the criminal provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA). The SIT, according to sources, has taken this case of alleged tax evasion seriously and it suspects generation of a huge amount of illegal funds in the capital, in which the I-T department has already seized huge cash and is scrutinising voluminous documents of real estate projects being executed by Yadav in the national capital region. According to an official statement issued by the Finance Ministry, the SIT after the meeting, also asked Kapur to personally monitor the probe in the case. I-T searches on the premises of Yadav and his wife last month had led to the recovery of huge cash, two kg gold and diamond jewellery even as the department has brought under its scanner over a dozen bank accounts of the duo and private firms operated by them. “As the search (on Singh) is being conducted by Director General Lucknow, it was directed that Chairperson CBDT would monitor the search, seizure and further appropriate proceedings against Yadav Singh and other connected persons. “DG and search officer (of the case) shall convey the information to the Director of the Enforcement Directorate to take appropriate action and to investigate the matter further from the angle of money laundering. Thereafter, SIT would further monitor the investigations,” the statement said.

Fadnavis is going to Delhi to attend a meeting of all chief ministers convened by prime minister Narendra Modi. The Congress and NCP leaders on Saturday voiced their protest against Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis for not attending the tea-party hosted on eve of the winter session beginning in Nagpur from Monday. Fadnavis is leaving on Sunday to attend a meeting of all chief ministers convened by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The day also coincides with high-tea convened by state government ahead of winter session at Nagpur. The former chief minister Prithviraj Chavan and former deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar said, “It is highly humiliating if the Chief Minister himself skips the tea session which is convened to discuss the issues with the opposition parties.” On Sunday, Fadnavis is going to Delhi to attend a meeting of all chief ministers convened by prime minister Narendra Modi. The Chief Minister has urged his senior cabinet colleague Chandrakant Patil to take the charge during the tea session in his absence. However, Pawar and Chavan believe the absence of the Chief Minister cannot be justified. Pawar said, “For the first time in the history of state legislature we have a chief minister who is not attending the tea party.” Ahead of every session it is a customary for the government to convene a high-tea with the leaders of all political parties. The Chief Minister is the host for the high-tea as he heads the government. MPCC chief Manikrao Thakre said, “This is the first session after the assembly elections and it is expected that chief minister should have been present. The chief minister should have reworked his schedule to ensure he could attend the meeting as well as tea session.” According to BJP cabinet minister, “The opposition has the right to express their views. But the prime minister meeting was scheduled and it coincides with the tea session.” Moreover, chief minister is not escaping the opposition. He has deputed a senior cabinet minister to play the host, he added. Arguing, “PM meeting in Delhi is also important as matters of Maharashtra issues would be raised by Fadnavis.”

Demba Cisse celebrates his goal with Ismael Tiote, Cisse now has 7 goals in 9 games for the Magpies. (Source: Reuters) Newcastle United ended Chelsea’s 23-match unbeaten run as Papiss Cisse scored two second-half goals in a tense 2-1 win over the Premier League leaders on Saturday. Cisse, who came on as a substitute after the break, tapped in Newcastle’s first after 57 minutes and struck again on the break 20 minutes later, seconds after Eden Hazard had been denied an equaliser by the woodwork. Newcastle were reduced to 10 men shortly afterwards when Steven Taylor was shown a second yellow card for a foul on Andre Schuerrle before substitute Didier Drogba gave Chelsea hope of a comeback with a majestic header after 83 minutes. Chelsea applied late pressure in a nerve-jangling six minutes of stoppage time but their hopes of stretching their unbeaten run to a new club record were thwarted by dogged Newcastle resistance and a brilliant fingertip save by substitute keeper Jak Alnwick on his competitive debut. Defeat for Jose Mourinho’s side, their first since the second leg of last season’s Champions League semi-final against Atletico Madrid, means champions Manchester City can close the gap to three points if they beat Everton at home later.

Former Australia captain Ian Chappell has no doubt that the home team will win the upcoming Test series against India but he feels the margin would depend on how the visiting batsmen tackle the pace and bounce. “The one thing we do know — Australia will win. But by what margin? The key to the result — and it’s only a matter of the margin of Australia’s victory — will be how India’s batsmen tackle the pace and bounce of the pitches and how effective their attack is under these conditions,” Chappell wrote in his column in ‘Daily Telegraph’. Chappell, however, admitted that a good start by the Indian batsmen might pose a threat to the Aussies. “India need to make a good start when they bat. If that happens, then Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, two excellent players of the horizontal bat shots, could be extremely dangerous,” the ex-skipper said. Speaking on India’s bowling, Chappell said, “Ishant Sharma is the most experienced and he needs to be a potent spearhead. If he can inspire by taking wickets with the new ball, then it will improve the chances of India’s other bowlers. This is India’s best way to expose any Australian hesitancy against spinners when playing at home.” Chappell feels it would be tough for the Australian players to get into the rhythm quickly as the tragic demise of Phillip Hughes would be fresh in their minds. “Just a couple of weeks ago, the most likely result in the Test series was Australia being a comfortable 4-0 victors over India. The tragic accident that took Phil Hughes’ life has changed that outlook and a lot of other things in the game,” said the former batsman. “There’s no doubt the Australians, especially, will find the series tough going. It will be harder for bowlers than batsmen. No fast bowler wants to hit a batsman in the prevailing mood. They know they have to bowl bouncers, it’s an integral part of their armoury, but it will be a while before they deliver them with full intensity,” he explained.

The two teams will later announce their 15 member final squad that will make the trip to New Zealand and Australia. (Source: IE File) England named a provisional 30-man squad on Saturday for next year’s one-day World Cup with Alastair Cook as captain. Cook is under pressure following a poor run of results and is suspended from Sunday’s game against Sri Lanka due to the team’s slow over-rate in the last game. Fast bowlers James Anderson and Stuart Broad were included in the squad after missing the current seven-match series in Sri Lanka due to injury. Alastair Cook captain as England name provisional World Cup squad A 15-man squad for the Tri-Series against Australia and India and the World Cup is due to be announced after the Sri Lanka series which England trail 2-1 with four matches to play. England: Alastair Cook (captain), Moeen Ali, James Anderson, Jonathan Bairstow, Gary Ballance, Ian Bell, Ravi Bopara, Tim Bresnan, Stuart Broad, Jack Brooks, Jos Buttler, Steven Finn, Harry Gurney, Alex Hales, Chris Jordan, Craig Kieswetter, Eoin Morgan, Stephen Parry, Samit Patel, Liam Plunkett, Boyd Rankin, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, James Taylor, James Tredwell, James Vince, Chris Woakes, Luke Wright PAKISTAN’S 30 PROBABLES Pakistan named suspended offspinner Saeed Ajmal in its preliminary squad of 30 players for next year’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand. Ajmal was suspended in September for an illegal bowling action and has been undergoing rehabilitation under former test offspinner Saqlain Mushtaq at the National Cricket Academy. The Pakistan Cricket Board Ajmal showed significant improvement on his bowling action during testing at the Lougborough University in England, but his elbow extension is still above the allowed 15 degrees limit. Fit-again fast bowler Umar Gul and Wahab Riaz were also included in the list of probables which will be trimmed down to a final 15 by Jan. 7. “The most positive aspect is that some of our foremost proven talents have overcome physical issues and are raring to be given an opportunity,” chief selector Moina Khan said in a statement. Pakistan will be playing a five-match one-day international series against New Zealand starting in Dubai on Monday, and will also take on the Black Caps in another short one-day series before February’s World Cup. The preliminary squad includes five opening batsmen, nine middle-order batsmen, six fast bowlers, four spinners, four allrounders and two wicketkeepers. The PCB has already named Misbah-ul-Haq as captain of the team for the World Cup. Pakistan squad: Misbah-ul-Haq (captain), Mohammad Hafeez, Ahmed Shehzad, Nasir Jamshed, Sharjeel Khan, Sami Aslam, Younis Khan, Asad Shafiq, Azhar Ali, Sohaib Maqsood, Fawad Alam, Haris Sohail, Shoaib Malik, Umar Akmal, Mohammad Irfan, Wahab Riaz, Junaid Khan, Umar Gul, Ehsan Adil, Mohammad Talha, Saeed Ajmal, Zulfiqar Babar, Raza Hasan, Yasir Shah, Shahid Afridi, Anwar Ali, Bilawal Bhatti, Sohail Tanvir, Sarfraz Ahmad, Kamran Akmal.

In West Bengal, a BJP worker was tortured with cigarette butts – allegedly by workers of the ruling Trinamool Congress – for attending BJP chief Amit Shah’s rally held on November 30. A group of TMC workers allegedly tattooed “TMC” on his chest with lighted cigarette butts for attending Amit Shah’s rally. (Source: Express photo by Shubham Dutta) Vishnu Choudhury, BJP worker from Hoogly had to bear the burn on his chest as a group of TMC workers allegedly tattooed “TMC” on his chest with lighted cigarette butts. BJP President Amit Shah addressed a rally in Kolkata on November 30. Addressing the rally,  Shah had alleged that Saradha chit fund money was used in the October 2 Burdwan blast. However, government had contradicted the links as alleged by Shah. PTI Adds: The district BJP moved the NHRC alleging that the worker was stripped in a closed room and subjected to physical torture by Trinamool Congress men in Hooghly for attending saffron party President Amit Shah’s rally in Kolkata on November 30. Hooghly BJP Vice-President Swapan Paul said the district unit approached the NHRC alleging Bansberia town BJP chief Bishnu Chowdhury was stripped and thrashed in a closed room by local TMC men on December three who sought an explanation why he had attended Shah’s rally and even ordered him to say “Mamata Banerjee zindabad”. District TMC president Tapan Dasgupta rubbished the allegations and said BJP was resorting to cheap gimmicks to make political inroads. He also wanted to know why the BJP took so long to make the charges public after December three. Officer-in-charge of Mogra police station Sukhomoy Chakroborty said no formal complaint was lodged by BJP about the matter and their activists came to the police station on Friday on a different issue.

Former Wimbledon winner Goran Ivanisevic. (Source: PTI) The UAE Royals thumped Singapore Slammers 29-16 in a one-sided affair, marking the India debut of the much talked about International Premier Tennis League (IPTL). The sizeable crowd at the Indian Gandhi Indoor Stadium got the first-hand taste of the fast-paced format made for creating its own space on the busy tennis calendar. Also in attendance was former India cricket cricketer Sunil Gavaskar. World number nine Marin Cilic, playing the opening men’s singles, delighted the spectators with his power-packed game that made him the 2014 US Open champion. He proved to be too good for Singapore’s Lleyton Hewitt, the former world number one who looked way past his prime. The Croat fired aces after aces, racing to a 5-1 lead in the one-off set. Hewitt, known for his fighting spirit all these years, came back to make it 3-5 before Cilic secured the set on the deciding point after 40-40. There is no ad-scoring in this innovative format. Cilic then partnered doubles specialist Nenad Zimonjic to beat the Australian combine of Nick Kyrgios and Hewitt 6-2. It was a tad surprising the team did not choose the younger Kyrgios to play the men’s singles. Next was a fun match between two retired Grand Slam champions, Goran Ivanisevic taking on Patrick Rafter in the past champions singles. Representing UAE, Ivanisevic, 43, did not put a foot wrong against his equally famed opponent, to win the set 6-1. The Croat engaged with the crowd every time he served the trademark ace of his hey days. “I really felt good. When you are up 5-0 against Pat, you know you are doing something well,” said Ivanisevic after the match. The mixed doubles saw UAE’s Zimonjic and Kristina Mladenovic getting past Hantuchova and Kyrgios 6-4. 63rd-ranked Hantuchova pulled off a consolation win for Singapore by surprising world number eight Caroline Wozniacki 6-5. She further helped the team’s cause by earning a bonus point after winning the last game. It will take some time for Indian fans to get used to the format. Besides no ad-scoring, all matches are played on best of five format with each set played to six games with a five-minute shoot-out at 5-5. The most talked innovation is the ‘Shot Clock’, aimed at restricting the time to 20 seconds between two service points.

Fadnavis had already made it clear that there won’t be a post of Deputy CM in his government. Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis on Saturday allocated the portfolios with BJP clearly having an upper hand as it managed to retain the top seven departments such as home, urban development,finance, revenue, water resources and energy. Despite pressure the chief minister has retained the most critical home department with himself along with urban development which Sena was vying during talks. The Shiv Sena which was engaged in a hard bargain appears to have settled for industry, public works department (MSRDC), health, environment and transport. Despite week long negotiations BJP managed to scrap the deputy chief minister post and also ensured home was not negotiable. However, BJP’s flexibility to offer energy was turned down as Sena preferred transport and industries. However, health is a very significant portflios which the Sena wants to exploit to its advantage. The senior BJP minister Girish Bapat has been entrusted with ministry of food and civil supplies, food and drug administration and parliamentary affairs. The water resources ministry which was controversial following alleged irrigation scams has been vested with senior (MLA) Girish Mahajan. The energy portflio where BJP intends to bring major reforms reckoning the challenges ahead has been given to Chandrashekhar Bawankule. The big budget ministry of social justice goes to Rajkumar Badole and water supply and sanitation to Babanrao Lonikar. In Shiv Sena senior cabinet minister Subash Desai gets industries, Eknath Shinde wrests PWD (MSRDC, Public Undertaking), Ramdas Kadam holds environment, Deepak Sawant who is medical doctor by profession gets health and family welfare and Diwakar Raote has been given transport ministry. On Friday 20 ministers including ten each from BJP and Shiv Sena took the oath of office. It includes ten cabinet rank and ten Ministers of State rank. Some changes that were done includes divesting the portflio of industries from Prakash Mehta (BJP) to accommodate Subash Desai (Shiv Sena). Mehta has been given housing, mining and labour. A senior Sena functionary said, “At the beginning we did bargain for the post of deputy chief minister and home. As we believed that our participation should be on equal terms. But we did not pursue as BJP offered us other plum portfolios which has more urban connect.” The Sena also explained, “The BJP has also agreed to accommodate Anil Desia at centre with a cabinet rank or minister of state (independent rank) ahead. The Sena has taken resource in the factor that BJP conceded to their demand for swapping industies which was earlier held by Congress minister Narayan Rane. The Sena feels BJP has tried to accommodate some of their concerns by given better choice to their MoS ministers in terms of portflios. At present the total strength of Fadnavis government is 30 ministers. It includes 18 cabinet rank and 12 ministers of state rank. The final list along with ministers from both Sena and BJP are as follows: Interestingly, Fadnavis who holds home ministry has shortlisted two dynamic and young BJP candidates as MoS rank — Ranjit Patil (home urban) and Ram Shinde (home urban).
