New Delhi: Sumit Sangwan blanked Israel's Yossi Levi in his opening bout of the light middle weight category while six other Indians got first-round byes in the AIBA World Junior Boxing Championships in Yerevan, Armenia on Sunday. Sumit Sangwan out-punched Levi 11-0 and will now take on Turkey's Burak Aksim, who defeated Hungary's Gabor Breznai 6-5 in a thrilling contest, in the pre-quarterfinals. It was smooth-sailing for the rest of the Indians as they got byes and are now into the pre-quarters. In the pin weight (46kg), Sandeep will take on Lithuania's Kestutis Pukas on Monday. Gaurav Bhiduri will square off against Freddie Ortiz of Puerto Rico in the pre-quarterfinal bout of the light fly weight (48kg) division on Monday. Also on Monday, Namit Bahadur will be up against Israel's Viktor Barak in the fly weight (50kg) category, while Shiva Thapa (52kg), who registered a dominating first-round win on Saturday, will take on Ukraine's Yuriy Shestak in his last-16 stage bout. A day after, Vikas Khatri will take the ring against Poland's Przemyslaw Runowski in the bantam weight pre-quarters. Belarussian Andrei Mikhailau awaits Kuldeep (57kg) in the feather weight pre-quarters. Beijing Olympics quarter-finalist and World Cup bronze medallist, Akhil Kumar's protege Mandeep Jangra will make his international debut against Lithuania's Ricardas Kuncaitis in the light weight pre-quarters after he too got a first-round bye.


Lalit Modi thanks South Africans for IPL success .

Johannesburg: Indian Premier League (IPL) chairman and commissioner Lalit Modi has thanked the people of South Africa for their overwhelming support for the tournament and making it a grand success on foreign soil. "The fact is that IPL-2 was a success because of the people of South Africa. The TV ratings proved it. The ratings of this year's IPL were higher than last year's despite the general elections (in India)," Modi said while speaking at the closing ceremony of the tournament at the New Wanderers here Sunday night. "I am grateful to so many people. I also want to assure the Indian fans that we will be back next year," he said. Spurred by the success of the second edition of the IPL, Modi also said the league will be expanded to 10 teams in 2011. Modi said the IPL will be back in India next year and the cramped International Cricket Council (ICC) schedule does not leave any room for the possibility of a second IPL in a calendar year in 2010. "We have been missing India but we have made a strong fan base in South Africa. We have a tight schedule next year. We will have two more teams in the league," said Modi. Modi, who is also the vice president of the Indian cricket board, said that organising the IPL in South Africa was a great experience. "We had a great time in South Africa. Everything was perfect. I am satisfied with the way the tournament was successfully conducted here at such a short time," he said.


Hyderabad celebrates Chargers' victory .

Hyderabad: Celebrations broke out in this southern city after Deccan Chargers beat Royal Challengers Bangalore by six runs to lift the second edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) at the New Wanderers in Johannesburg Sunday. Hailing the victory of the home team, the fans burst crackers and came out on the streets raising slogans. As R.P. Singh bowled the last ball, the fans went wild and gathered on the roads, congratulating each other. Those watching the match live on giant TV screens at pubs, restaurants and hotels hugged each other, hailing the achievement of Adam Gilchrist and his boys. Young fans were seen enjoying the moments before the giant screens at pubs. Dancing to the tunes of popular Bollywood numbers, they celebrated the fall of every Challengers wicket. The celebrations peaked as Chargers mounted pressure on team Bangalore after the strategic break. "The wicket of Rahul Dravid was the turning point. Earlier, it appeared as if Dravid and Ross Taylor would walk away with the match," said Sunil Kumar, a young software engineer watching the match at a popular pub. Fans termed the victory historic, saying this had brought fame and glory to the city. "It is a fantastic victory for this city as it will bring more laureals," said Waseem Hyder, a class 12 student. Diehard fans felt the Chargers deserved the victory as they worked very hard from the start and came back in the tournament despite losing a few matches in the middle. "The team should have won the first edition of IPL but it was bad luck that it ended at the bottom. This time, it has got its deserved position," said T. Ramna, a young cricketer. Earlier, the fans were disappointed when Gilchrist was out for a duck in the very first over of the match as they were expecting fireworks from him after his aggressive match winning knock against Delhi Daredevils in the semifinals.


Bowden backs television replays in cricket.

Wellington: Leading umpire Billy Bowden has endorsed cricket's umpiring review system, saying it will improve player behavior and reduce stress on match officials. The system, which allows players to refer umpires' decisions to a television official for review, will be implemented in all test matches from October. Bowden told New Zealand's Sunday Star-Times newspaper the system would have many benefits for cricket, including reducing negative media coverage. "Behavior will change, there is no doubt whatsoever," Bowden said in the interview published on Sunday. "The reports that are made on players will change for the better. (Bad behavior) will be cut by half. The majority of the behavior is from an umpiring decision but if that can be corrected out on the field, then everyone moves on." Bowden said the review system would lift the rate of correct decisions made by test umpires from about 95 per cent to 99 per cent. "If we can do that without taking away the human element, it's going to be a huge bonus and a positive step for the betterment of cricket," he said.


One more win will be nice: Anil Kumble.

Johannesburg: Bangalore Royal Challengers' skipper Anil Kumble was not willing to celebrate after the team's six-wicket victory over Chennai Super Kings at the New Wanderers here on Saturday propelled it into Sunday's final of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Former India captain Kumble, who took over the reins from an unimpressive Kevin Pietersen midway through the league, said the party will start with one more win - the final, that is. "One more win will be nice," said Kumble after Saturday's second semi-final that set up Challengers' date with Deccan Chargers in the final. Kumble lauded both his batsmen and bowlers for the confidence boosting win over last year's runners-up Super Kings. The bowlers restricted Super Kings to 146 for five in 20 overs and then 19-year-old Man of the Match Manish Pandey (48) and the veteran Rahul Dravid (44) played some solid knocks as Royal Challengers achieved the target with seven balls to spare. "Their score was not even a par score. Our batsmen backed themselves to clear the boundary. I thought Praveen and Vinay bowled very well at the end," Kumble said.


IPL will be 10-team league in 2011.

Johannesburg: Buoyed by the success of the second edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), its chairman and commissioner Lalit Modi said the eight-team tournament will be expanded to 10 teams in 2011. Modi said the IPL will be back in India next year and the cramped International Cricket Council (ICC) schedule does not leave any room for the possibility of a second IPL in a calendar year in 2010. "We have been missing India but we have made a strong fan base in South Africa. We have a tight schedule next year. We will have two more teams in the league," said Modi. Modi, who is also the vice president of the Indian cricket board, said that organising the IPL in South Africa was a great experience. "We had a great time in South Africa. Everything was perfect. I am satisfied with the way the tournament was successfully conducted here at such a short time," he said.


Button wins F1's Monaco GP to lead Brawn GP 1-2.

Monaco: Brawn GP's Jenson Button won the Monaco Grand Prix on Sunday, capturing his fifth victory in six races to extend his Formula One championship lead. Button finished 7.6 seconds ahead of teammate Rubens Barrichello at the famed street circuit race for his fourth start-to-finish victory of the season. Button leads with 51 points. Barrichello has 35 and Sebastian Vettel of Red Bull, who crashed out after 16 laps, is third with 23 points. Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen earned Ferrari its first top-three finish of the season by taking third. Felipe Massa was fourth for Ferrari ahead of Red Bull's Mark Webber, who took his points tally to 19.5. Brawn GP became the first team in its inaugural season to win in Monaco since Wolf's Jody Scheckter 32 years ago. Defending F1 champion Lewis Hamilton, the 2008 Monaco winner, came 12th after starting last on the grid. Button ran along the track to reach the podium ceremony, waving to fans in the stands and overlooking apartment balconies before accepting the trophy from Prince Albert. Brawn GP leads the constructors' title with 86 points. Red Bull is next with 42.5 and Toyota has 26.5 after its two drivers finished near the the tail of the field. Button easily held his pole position out of the start and slowly pulled away. The Briton, whose previous best result at Monaco was runner-up five years ago, maintained a double-digit advantage nearly to the end. Barrichello breezed past the KERS-boosted Ferrari of Raikkonen to sit second after the first turn and eventually finished 5.8 seconds ahead of the Finn at the end. Massa earned 11 points for Ferrari for its best single race total this season in what has been its worst ever start. Vettel's championship hopes were hit by sliding into a corner and damaging his rear suspension, an identical accident to Hamilton's on Saturday that left the McLaren driver starting at the back of the grid. Vettel was involved in a battle with Massa and Nico Rosberg of Williams before his exit, as cars found space coming out of the Louis Tunnel II for rare overtaking maneuvers. Rosberg came sixth, Renault's Fernando Alonso was seventh and Toro Rosso's Sebastien Bourdais took the last point in eighth. Robert Kubica's miserable weekend for BMW Sauber ended after 16 laps, one of six six drivers to retire. The Pole remains without a point this season.
