India vs Syria in Nehru Cup Football Finals on Sunday August 29 2009

India WINS Nehru Cup 2009, beats Syria 5-4 in Finals

Syria 1-1, 4-5 India [on penalties]

The ONGC Nehru Cup or the Nehru Cup International Football Tournament has some surprise for us.

This year it is the 14th edition of the tournament, and the matches were played in the round-robin format. The final match is scheduled to be played on August 31st 2009 at the Ambedkar Stadium.

The surprise is that India has defeated Sri Lanka with a splendid score of 3-1, and with this victory they have cemented their position in the final. Their ground passes were good and they looked pretty decent against the Lankans.

The Syrian coach Fajer Ibrahim expressed happiness with his team’s performance and considering the fact that Syrian players are fasting due to Ramadan, he felt they were doing awesome and a draw against Lebanon would have been enough for them to take to the final, but Syria defeated Lebanon with a score of 1-0 and is headed to play the final match against India.

Syria has highest rank in the five-nation tournament and India will surely be facing the tough opponents in the finals.

Syria has scored nine points with three victories in the tournament. But India’s coach Bob Houghton warns his team in spite of reaching the finals and says that they need to still play their best soccer to see they win against Syria as even goalkeeper Subrata Paul remarked that the Indians deserved to be in the final match.

India has emerged as a strong contender to win the Nehru but Syria surely has an upper hand and start as pre-match favorites.

Sunderland vs Chelsea EPL Highlights Video August 18th 2009 Score Results

Sunderland vs. Chelsea English Premier League Highlights, Score – August 18 2009

English Premier League: Sunderland vs. Chelsea
Venue: Stadium of Light
Date: Tuesday 18 August, 2009 Kick-off: 1945 BST

Sunderland will play Chelsea on Tuesday August 18, 2009. And needless to say it’s going to be a Herculean task ahead for the Steve Bruce’s men to beat the Chelsea. However, a 1-0 win (the goal gotten by recent entrant Darren Bent) against the Bolton Wanderers would have given the much needed confidence for the black cats to face Chelsea, but Steve Bruce is concerned if their midfielder Steed Malbranque will be able to be fit for the match after the Frenchman had his ankle twisted during the match.

There is also a doubt about Kieran Richardson’s coming into the Tuesday’s match after he complained of dead leg symptoms he complained after the match against the Bolton Wanderers.

Steve Bruce; however, also heaved a sigh of relief after his summer signings which included Lee Cattermole and Lorik Cana shown promise in their opening day match.

Kenwyne Jones might be sent in to break Chelsea’s defense by John Terry and Ricardo Carvalho.

On the other hand Chelsea looks as impressive as ever with Frank Lampard and Michael Essien quite strong as well as threatening, and looks like they will go ahead with their authority to show their supremacy over the Steve Bruce’s team.

Andy Murray vs Juan Martin del Potro Rogers Tennis Montreal 2009 Highlights Results Winner

Andy Murray -Montreal Tennis 2009 Rogers Tennis Cup Winner

andy-murray-vs-juan-martin-del-potro

The Montreal sees now the last 2 warriors in Andy Murray and Juan Martin del Potro.

The Canadian tennis fans awaited a Federer-Nadal clash but they must not have been disappointed at the way these two disciplined players sweated out.

Now as to head on head encounters between the 3rd and the 6th seeds; Murray leads 3 to 1 in the ATp circuits and the Scottish further has lead of 2-0 on hard court matches. However, Del Potro won their last encounter played on clay court at Madrid in 2009.

There is a thing to cheer here, Murray sneaked into the No.2 slot pushing aside Nadal and he is deservedly the man to be there.

Guess his hands on training in Florida gave the Brit perfect blend of balance of hard work and relaxing much needed before the start of the tour.

He had not lost a set during last week and so that took him to the No.2 slot. This also tells with how much ease he must be playing at it. Not a single shot he rushed and that earns him to be one in the 56-men tournament that started a week back.

On the other hand, Juan Martin Del Potro too had been extremely impressive during the last week; bouncing back so decently from every obstacle that came his way.

Mind you, he had shown Nadal the doors out of the tournament with a matured effort and a convincing style and his win against Andy Roddick in the Legg Mason Classic Tournament had shown what a star he was at fighting. The men’s tennis is in great shape with not just 2 warriors but many sweating and maturing enough; looks like.

As regards the finals today both these players are strong at their backhands while del Potro is very quick at the ball the Scot has great touch at the net.

While Murray has the experience and has been ranked higher, and also winning 2 head to head encounters. But is that enough to predict him a winner?

No, because the Argentine del Potro is perhaps peaking his tennis career and playing best tennis in the world. I don’t find a flaw or a weakness in his game and his clutch serving with xxx mph speed could actually trouble the Scot. His hard work and determination will bring him more wins than any predictions.

IPL 2010 Schedule and Fixtures – March 12, 2010 Onwards

IPL 2010 Schedule – IPL – Indian Premier League (March – April 2010). Cricket’s latest cash crop IPL is all set to return to India in its third edition in 2010. Thanks to the overwhelming popularity of the first two seasons, schedules for the third are already being decided. Start of the tournament is tentatively pitted on the 12th of March and staged over 45 days.

The big issue has been excess fatigue for players, which ruins their chances of performing to the fullest in national colors. Several Indian players, Andrew Flintoff and other players are still carrying IPL-induced injuries. BCCI will take care that the IPL time slot allows significant period of rest before the World Cup Twenty20, scheduled to be played in March-April 2010.

The original contract for each franchisee’s players was for three years. Many will try to leave a mark in the final year of their contract. Some players, like Saurav Ganguly, Adam Gilchrist and Matthew Hayden are expected to hang their boots after IPL 2010. Eyes are also fixed on the age-defying old war horse Sanath Jayasuriya, who has entered 40s. Ganguly’s potential role for KKR in IPL 2010 is also generating curiosity.
