The meeting scheduled for Sunday between the wrestlers and the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) president has been cancelled. This decision has been taken due to the ban of the Sports Ministry. According to the information, this meeting will not be held for 4 weeks now.

On the other hand, on Saturday evening, the Sports Ministry suspended all the activities of WFI. The ministry said that the WFI will also have to cancel the ongoing ranking tournament in Gonda (UP). Federation’s assistant secretary Vinod Tomar has been suspended on charges of indiscipline. Vinod is accused of making property worth crores by taking bribe from the players.

Sports Minister Anurag Thakur has formed a committee to investigate the allegations against Brij Bhushan Sharan and till the investigation is completed, he has been asked not to participate in the activities of the Federation. It is believed that after the council meeting, Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh will come in front of the media and keep his point.

Most people are with Brij Bhushan, says suspended WFI secretary

Before being suspended by the Sports Ministry, Tomar had said on Saturday evening that most of the people of the Federation are with Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh and personally also he do not find the allegations of the players right. He said that he has been associated with Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh for 12 years, and that he was not like that. The allegations of the players are baseless. It’s been 3-4 days and they haven’t produced any evidence yet, he said.

Personal agenda birthed the protest: WFI

The Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) responded to the Sports Ministry’s notice. It was said on behalf of the Federation – the protesting players are defaming the WFI for their personal interest. They have personal agenda behind the protest. The president or anyone in WFI can’t do anything arbitrarily. There is no scope for mismanagement here.

Strike ended after a 7-hour meeting

The three-day-long strike by wrestlers against Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) president Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh ended at 1 am on Friday. This decision was taken after a 7-hour meeting between Sports Minister Anurag Thakur and the wrestlers. Anurag Thakur said that an inquiry committee will be formed. It will give its report in 4 weeks.

Anurag Thakur also said that Brij Bhushan Singh will not look after the work of the Federation until the investigation is completed. This committee will keep an eye on the functioning of WFI. Brij Bhushan has assured cooperation in the investigation. On the other hand, wrestler Bajrang Punia said that the Union Sports Minister listened to their demands and assured proper investigation.

Indian Olympic Association forms an inquiry committee

The face-off between Wrestling Federation of India President Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh and wrestlers over allegations of sexual harassment went on for a day. Both the parties were not ready to leave the ‘akhada’. The wrestlers wrote a letter to the Indian Olympic Association (IOA).

Shubman Gill’s Tera Hero Idhar Hai Instagram post viral following Tinder’s Idhar Toh Dekhlo ad campaign

Shubman Gill’s latest Instagram post – which is a part of Tinder’s advertisement campaign – following a girl’s photo of holding placard with written, “Tinder Shubman Se Match Kara Do” has gone viral on social media.

In collaboration with Tinder, the young Indian opener, had come up with an Instagram post which has created a buzz on social media.

Notably, last week, during the third T20 International between India and New Zealand at Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium, emerging Indian batter Shubman Gill stole the show with a scorching century. Gill hammered an unbroken 126 off 63 balls, paving the way for India to win the series. Gill had previously struck his first double century in the ODI series against the Kiwis. A girl fan was seen brandishing a poster that said, “Tinder, Shubman se match karado,” as Gill played around with the New Zealand bowlers.

The photo went viral on social media:

Additionally, as part of its creative branding plan, Tinder posted the popular image of the female fan on billboards all across Nagpur, which will host the first Test match between India and Australia starting on February 9.

Umesh Yadav, a seasoned bowler who will play for India in the first two Tests of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, tweeted images of the commercial banners on Twitter, perhaps to tease Shubman Gill.

Umesh captioned the images, Poora Nagpur bol raha hai, @ShubmanGill ab toh dekh le.

Now that her fan’s plea has gone viral and he has published a teaser video of his Tinder profile on Instagram, Gill has answered.

He captioned the video, “Dekh toh liya, ab tum dekho theek se.”

Gill and India’s skipper Rohit Sharma are likely to start the batting during the Test series against Australia.

The first match of 4-match Test series of Border-Gavaskar trophy will be played at Nagpur on February 9.

Asia Cup 2023: India will not travel to Pakistan for Asia Cup, confirms BCCI secretary Jai Shah

The Asian Cricket Council meeting has ended in Bahrain. During this meeting, BCCI and PCB came face-to-face for the right to host Asia Cup 2023. While Pakistan is adamant on hosting the tournament, Jay Shah, secretary of the Board of Control for Cricket in India and president of the Asian Cricket Council, has refused on Team India travelling to Pakistan for the Asia Cup.

A BCCI official said that the ACC is in Bahrain for the meeting. And BCCI’s stand will not change. Team India will not travel to Pakistan as the board has not received permission from the government to proceed. And if this happens, the tournament will either be shifted to the UAE, with the PCB retaining the hosting rights, or Sri Lanka could be another option. The recent Peshawar bombings have again raised security concerns about holding cricket tournaments in Pakistan.

In December last year, ACC President Shah had revealed the Asia Cup schedule but did not mention the venue of this 6-team tournament. This led Sethi to accuse Shah of taking a unilateral decision, a charge which the ACC officially rejected, saying that repeated emails to the PCB seeking recommendations on the travel schedule went unanswered .

In October last year, Jay Shah officially told the media that India would not travel to Pakistan. The then PCB chief Rameez Raja had then threatened that if this happened, Pakistan would not travel to India for the 50-over World Cup later this year.

Asia Cup 2023 Schedule

The Asia Cup will be held in September. Although its full schedule has not been announced yet. The Asia Cup was to be held in Pakistan, but Asian Cricket Council President Jay Shah confirmed that the Asia Cup would be shifted out of Pakistan. Hence, the venue and schedule are yet to be announced.
