Cricket News Sunil Gavaskar calls selectors ‘Lame Ducks’, questions Virat Kohli’s undisputed position as captain

first_imgSunil Gavaskar termed Indian selectors as lame ducks.Indian team will leave for West Indies on Monday. India finished as semi-finalist in recently concluded World Cup 2019.  For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: The Indian cricketer turned commentator Sunil Gavaskar has lashed out at the national selection committee for not questioning Virat Kohli’s undisputed position as captain despite the below par performance at the recently concluded ICC World Cup 2019. The former skipper described the panel led by MSK Prasad as “lame ducks” in his column for Mid-day, Gavaskar said that by not following established procedure by reappointing Kohli as captain, the selectors have sent the message that he can retain the job for as long as he wishes to.”That they selected the team for West Indies without first having a meeting to select the captain brings up the question of whether Virat Kohli is the captain of the team at his or the selection committee’s pleasure,” wrote Gavaskar.“To the best of our knowledge his (Kohli’s) appointment was till the World Cup. After that, it was incumbent on the selectors to meet even if it was for five minutes for his reappointment.“Speaking of lame ducks, the Indian selection committee appears to be one. After the reappointment, he (captain) gets invited to the meeting for his views on the selecting the players for the team. By bypassing the procedure, the message that goes out is that while the players like Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik get dropped after below expectations performance, the captain continues despite much below par expectations where the team did not even reach the finals.”He further continued his attack against the selection committee which consists of former players Sarandeep Singh, Devang Gandhi, Jatin Paranjape and Gagan Khoda besides Prasad, Gavaskar said that the lack of stature in the group was an impediment in their smooth functioning.None of the current selectors had long careers in India colours and in fact two – Paranjape and Khoda – didn’t play a single Test, featuring only in a few ODIs. Gavaskar, one of the greats of Indian cricket himself, believes players of stature will be able to avoid getting “bullied” by the team management into making decisions.“This is probably one of the last selections for this committee as a new one will get appointed soon,” he wrote. “Hopefully that will have players of stature who will not get bullied and be able to tell the team management that their job is to play with the team chosen by the selectors.”center_img highlightslast_img read more

Almir Jusović- the fastest B&H skateboarder

first_imgAlmir Jusović began skateboarding when he was only seven years old in Slovenia. At the time he learned how to skate, skateboard was very popular in Slovenia. As all boys of that age, he also did a lot of other sports, but came back to his first love. As he says now, he saw his future in skateboarding.  Almir Jusović was born in Slovenia, but as he said, he is Bosnian. His father came to Slovenia and married his mother.  This thirty year old skateboarder is one of the best in his profession. Although this sport is very dangerous, and as he says, full of unexpected injuries, that never made him give up his passion.“ I used to watch tricks by Rodney Mullen. He was my idol because he did ”his stuff”, or he was unique. Now I’m trying to that too, and that is my biggest satisfaction. I want to be grateful and professional  as much as possible”- said Almir.Almir Jusović attended numerous competitions, provoked excitement all around, and now he is doing his promotion film about skateboarding. According to him, it is some sort of a commercial that aims at promoting new skateboard tricks.” I also want to make this sport more popular, and I expect that this film could be finished by the end of this year. It is very important for me to experiment and to do things that no one does.”- said Almir.His inspiration comes when he is high on adrenalin, and he also admits that he is some kind of an adrenalin junkie. Last year he tried to break the record of 125,6 km/h on his skateboard but he did not succeed. On the other side, Almir was very close because he rode his skateboard at a speed of 124 km/h.  That is very impressive, and that certainly makes him the fastest B&H skateboarder.last_img read more
