and dispensation of sports grants to nurture the sport talent" Om Pathak a member of the task force said at the 5th Global Sports Convention on Saturday "Sports science is currently missing in sports

disputes between India and Pakistan over the Indus Waters Treaty can be resolved within the context of the agreement itself Pakistan’s prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has said Abbasi who was responding to a question on the Indus Waters Treaty said there were provisions in the treaty on how to resolve the disputes File photo of Indus river News18 "It’s a legal issue now And it can be resolved within the context of the agreement" Abbasi said on Wednesday at an event organised here by the Council on Foreign Relations a top American think-tank "That’s been our stance from day one that the issue should be resolved as per the provisions of the agreement which are very clear I think the World Bank also appreciates our viewpoint" Abbasi said India and Pakistan held the latest round of talks on the Indus Waters Treaty on 14 and 15 September under the aegis of the World Bank that ended without any agreement The second round of discussions between India and Pakistan on Ratle and Kishanganga hydroelectric projects over which Islamabad has raised objections took place at the World Bank headquarters in Washington amid a chill in bilateral ties The Indus Waters Treaty was signed in 1960 after nine years of negotiations between India and Pakistan with the help of the World Bank which is also a signatory The World Bank’s role in relation to the "differences" and "disputes" is limited to the designation of people to fulfill certain roles when requested by either or both of the parties The last round of talks were held on 1 August which the World bank said were held in a spirit of goodwill and cooperation When Balwant Singh a substitute on the night and a revelation in recent times ran down the right and squared the ball into the box anyone who has followed Indian football for a while now knew what was going to happen The ball took its merry time reaching its target a diminutive man wearing the number 11 shirt As it rolled slowly across the 18-yard-box for what seemed like an eternity and as Sunil Chhetri appeared out of nowhere on the other side like a ghost like he always does you knew the outcome It was a goal before Chhetri put the ball into the net It was a goal before Balwant put in the cross It was a goal before the game began Chhetri’s decisive strike took India to victory over Macau and into the AFC Asian Cup for only the fourth time in history India have over a year to prepare for the 2019 Asia Cup to be held in UAE PTI There wasn’t much doubt that India would prevailin Bengaluru on Wednesday Beating Macau4-1 at home doesn’t mean much in itself But the scale of the achievement that came with the win truly sunk in at the final whistle On a cold wet night in Bengaluru the sun was shining on Indian football "I don’t know how I feel I’ll go back to the dressing room talk to the boys and then maybe I’ll know" a breathless Chhetri said after the game In the last three years the Indian football team has made tangible progress Many young players came to the fore and helped India clinch the South Asian Football Federation (SAFF) championship These youngsters have now become regulars in the first team India’s FIFA ranking rose sharply reaching the top 100 recently The ongoing U-17 World Cup is the nation’s maiden foray at a FIFA tournament and will serve as valuable experience not just for the young players but also for sports administrators Qualifying for the Asian Cup also represents the very quest and being of Indian football: To get better Despite the leaps and bounds made in recent times despite the money and attention pouring in through the Indian Super League India still remains considerable steps behind top Asian teams in terms of quality and preparation "We have worked really hard But in the end we are India So we know we have to work harder" the Indian skipper said And he couldn’t be more right Any success for Indian football opens the gates for further improvement The Asian Cup is that gate And how does one get better Of course one needs to work hard And if there are those around you who make you work harder than ever that is when you truly improve The Indian teamwill only get better when it plays against better teams And Asian Cup will provide that opportunity We witnessed a similar situation with the Afghanistan national team at the 2016 SAFF Championships as well The Afghans had clearly improved over time and were nowdispatching other nations in the SAFF sub-confederation with considerable ease Only a spirited India performance in the final stopped them from retaining the title It was also Afghanistan’s last SAFF tournament They were moving on to the recently formed Central Asian Football Association (CAFA) Afghanistan had outgrown SAFF become a big fish in a small pond They needed tougher better opponents And CAFA offered them just that Afghanistan then ranked highest among the SAFF nations was the lowest ranked team in CAFA which comprised Asian heavyweights likeIran and Uzbekistan India too needs to play against heavyweight teams like Japan Saudi Arabia South Korea Australia Iran Iraq etc And in the Asian Cup the Blue Tigers will face the continent’s best TheAsian Cup is not just a big continental tournament; for India it is also a measure of how good they can be The other good news is that India has earned qualification early on in the third round itself which gives them more than year to prepare for the 2019 edition to be held in the UAE Considering where the team has reached in such little time one can expect them be better by2019 A national training centre is on its way and intense scouting leading up to the U-17 World Cup has uncovered some serious young talent in the country One of them Jeakson Thounaojam aged only 16 scored India’s first goal at the World Cup Another Dheeraj Moirangthem 17 has become a household name due to heroics with a pair of gloves The senior team has changed visibly in how they play Rarely does one see them resorting to diagonal long balls of the past India are fitter faster and stronger and it is apparent on the field By In a year and half India is bound to be better prepared to take on continental giants When asked what the victory and qualification meant for the team Chhetriechoed a similar sentiment "It means we rub shoulders with the best in Asia" he said India is lucky to have Chhetri not just because he is a world classforward but also because he’s such a pragmatic and intelligent leader He appreciates the hard work done to reach this point butacknowledges the difficult path that lies ahead He does not have grand designs orschemes for Indian football buttakes it one step at a time He does not talk in dreams but instead tries to deliver the reality It’s a process and the Asian Cup qualification is turning of a page India will play teams that have played in the World Cup India will lose But India will learn With contrasting fortunes of the ISL and I-league at home

you gasp but the graceful arcs cut by the batsman’s body Like with Ben Stokes He isn’t known for aesthetics in batting Sure he does the adrenalin-pumping big hits but you don’t normally cue up his batting highlights to sigh in aesthetic pleasure But there is this one shot rather position he ends up on occasions which makes you press the ‘last 10 seconds’ button on HotStar to watch it again It made its appearance on Saturday afternoon in Hyderabad on a slow pitch against the left-arm spin of Bipul Sharma It was a sluggish pitch and runs were at a premium Stokes was in an innings-rebuilding partnership with Steve Smith when he decided to take some risk He slog-swept Sharma for a six — your regular banal IPL six but it was the second six of the over that made one look for that 10-sec icon He had come down the track but Sharma squeezed out this one that much slower and shortened the length as well Stokes realised he had to reach out way in front of his body if he was to continue with his original thought of destruction And he did that in some style He lunged forward and as the bat came down for the crunchy-connect the back leg waltzed into air To maintain balance and also give him that extra leverage to get some power into the shot – it was like a leg-popping kiss movement of the back leg Up it went and the upper body lunged forward and the bat sliced through the air for the smacking blow The leg-pop the body-arc and the powerful finish made it a lovely sight Hope there was a photographer stationed at square-leg to frame it You didn’t need a cameraman to focus on Stokes to capture his decisive moves with the ball in the chase The departing batsmen showed all the drama and anguish in their faces Just like the twin sixes it was a double whammy from Stokes again as he took out Shikhar Dhawan and Kane Williamson in an over He went round the stumps and angled in a seamer that kept low and went through the awkward defensive technique of Dhawan And Williamson was done in by the extra bounce two balls later It kicked up outside off took the slice of the forward prod and rushed into Dhoni’s gloves Stokes wasn’t done yet The game breaker returned to have David Warner slashing a short ball outside off to deep cover Slow-ball specialist Jaydev Unadkat India’s slow-ball specialist loves those sluggish pitches He can amble in one of the more innocuous run-ups in town

she wobbles along towards the batsmen who is usually looking for the almighty big hit Five men were deceived by him on Saturday Well perhaps deceived isn’t the most apt term there as it’s difficult to imagine that the batsmen don’t know what’s coming out at them from Unadkat Yet they succumbed In Yuvraj Singh’s case it wasn’t a mess-up but he nevertheless fell into the Unadkat trap 32 runs were needed in the last 3 overs and Yuvraj was on 47 With Yuvraj killing anything on his legs or on a length on the stumps Unadkat’s plan was clear: Keep it outside off He does the slower short-of-length stuff pretty well They don’t look venomous but in the end-over scenario with a well-placed field it works out well for him The ball climbed slowly well outside off and Yuvraj ended up slashing it to deep cover In the same over he snuffed out Hyderabad’s remaining big hope Naman Ojha with another slower one By the time he started his final over with Hyderabad needing 13 to win the momentum was with his team He rolled out a series of slower ones away from the batsmen who kept trying to heave it across the line Sharma holed out at deep square leg and Rashid Khan provided yet another caught-and-bowled opportunity to Unadkat whose slower ones regularly get him under the mishit skiers in the end-overs Bhuvneshwar Kumar too tried to slog across the line but ended up shanking the
