The Lost word: Dinosaur
The All India Tennis Association and the players find it difficult to be on the same page, even when it comes to their sense of humour. During the ongoing deadlock with the federation, Mahesh Bhupathi bemoaned the archaic standards of the federation, calling its officials 'dinosaurs' on his Facebook page. However, the AITA CEO and secretary general took it as a comment on their well-rounded bodies. "If Mahesh thinks we look like dinosaurs, I will be happy to consult a SAI doctor for liposuction," was Bharat Oza's response.
A Bouncer of a question
On the sidelines of a practice session ahead of England XI's game against India A team, Tim Bresnan was speaking to the media. A journalist asked him about the new rule changes in ODIs. Did he know about the fact that bowlers could send down two bouncers an over now, he was asked. The English bowler, known for dishing out the short stuff, replied back drily, "No I didn't. I guess that will help me out." Not really, considering England were thrashed twice in a row to trail 2-1.
Well begun, half won
During the Mumbai marathon, there was the mixture of both the serious and those who turn up for kicks. Asian Games gold medallist Sudha Singh who runs 3 km hurdling over barriers in her day job, former tennis doubles pro Mustafa Ghouse and former rugby player Rahul Bose all strapped themselves in for the half marathon. Sudha Singh, who won the race pocketing a cool 4 lakh, had in fact put off watching Paan Singh Tomar ó the steeplechaser-bandit's movie until she'd wrapped up this race as a warm up to the season. As for the rest, Ghouse looked untroubled to while Bose, actor as well as an ex-rugger, ran in soon after, though the sun was well and truly out by then.
