Conservative party has harmed our economy" he said Asked about ‘Khalistan’ sympathisers in the UK Dhesi said "It is not a question of supporting any particular ideology" He said like in India people get a chance to express their views and follow any ideology in the UK also "there is freedom of expression and freedom of speech" "Each party like Congress SAD AAP has support base in the UK It is not correct that people living in UK follow only one ideology" he stressed By: AP | Published: August 1 2017 1:05 pm The IOC president Thomas Bach (Source: Reuters) Top News Los Angeles is on its way to being an Olympic city again this time in 2028 A tentative deal announced Monday gives LA the Summer Games after Paris emerged as the last city standing in the contest for the 2024 Games Here’s how things progressed to this point: WHY 2028 AND NOT 2024 Only a few months ago Los Angeles leaders winced at the prospect of hosting the 2028 Games The city “is only bidding for 2024” LA Olympic Committee leader Casey Wasserman said in May But that stance softened after International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach pushed the idea of making revisions to bidding to avoid “too many losers” in other words dividing the spoils for 2024 and 2028 LA embraced the second-place prize 2028 after it became clear Paris was in line for 2024 THE COST LA’s bid committee has projected it will cost about $5 billion to stage the Games While recent Games have seen runaway costs LA officials predict the plan will stay in the black covering all expenditures through ticket sales sponsorships and other revenue Major savings will come from using existing venues like the Coliseum and Pauley Pavilion rather than buildings new ones THE SWEETENER LA’s agreement comes with a plump reward for the long wait: Under the 2028 contract the IOC will advance funds to the LA committee to account for the longer planning period and to increase youth sports programs leading up to the Games The IOC contribution would be $18 billion with the potential to exceed $2 billion when taking into account the estimated value of renewed sponsor agreements and potential new marketing deals according to the LA bid committee There are other benefits: The LA committee would get $180 million from the IOC over the first five years of the deal to cover expenses and support youth sports a shift since the IOC typically holds back most of its spending until the Games get closer And the IOC would surrender its right to a 20 percent cut of any surplus after the Games end which could give LA $100 million or more if the books stay balanced according to the LA committee WHAT’S NEXT Next month the proposed deal will be considered by the Los Angeles City Council and the US Olympic Committee board If approved the International Olympic Committee LA and Paris could enter a three-way agreement clearing the way for IOC to award the 2024 Games to Paris with 2028 going to Los Angeles A final IOC vote is expected

Mohali | Updated: November 23 2016 8:01 am Gautam Gambhir made 98 in four innings of his comeback (Source: PTI) Top News At some other time Gautam Gambhir’s Twitter or Instagram timeline would have been replete with snaps of the mist-skirted ghats that overlook the Krishnagiri Stadium in Wayanad where Delhi is playing Rajasthan in Ranji Trophy But the Delhi skipper must have had too many botheration to not fully soak in the languorous setting of the stadium Or even feel a little distracted His domestic side’s unflattering start to the season must be one but he would have been more distressed at how he has contrived to blow up another and possibly the final shot at prolonging his Test career His return to the Test side had yielded only 98 runs from four innings the last a duck in Rajkot On Tuesday morning he lasted just 34 overs adding only four more to his overnight tally of 10 Late sometime in the day the message that he was axed from the remainder of the series must have been conveyed to him At 35 and with a posse of suitable suitors around Gambhir’s prospects of wooing back another comeback look imminently bleak Unless there is another strange recurrence of more than a pair of regular openers getting injured Three balls after his stumps were disheveled by Aniket Choudhary his opening partner Shikhar Dhawan too joined him in the pavilion having added nine more runs to his overnight score a crunchy 38 Late in the day someone might have informed him about his omission from the squad too though he has fully recovered from the thumb injury His plight though is not as grim or dire as Gambhir’s As coach Anil Kumble has time and time again reiterated he doesn’t want injured players to return hastily to the side So the selectors must have deemed it judicious to give Dhawan some more time in the domestic circuit before feeling his way back to Test cricket In a way this might bode well for him for he hasn’t looked entirely assured since the 84 against West Indies in North Sound In five innings since he has managed only 72 runs Hence if he can string together a few good knocks he could restore his Test career This though literally implies that India would have just two specialist openers—Murali Vijay and KL Rahul However this wouldn’t vex the team management much even in the eventuality of one of the openers sustaining an injury in the morning or on the eve of the match There is always the emergency alternative of asking Cheteshwar Pujara to open and the pitches anyway would unlikely be spiteful enough to tax a makeshift opener The only other addition to the squad was medium pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar who sustained a back strain in the second Test against New Zealand in Kolkata in which he had taken five wickets in the first innings He could straightaway be picked even ahead of Ishant Sharma in the playing eleven if the strip wears a greenish tinge For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: IANS | Mumbai |
