over a year since Uruguay forward Luis Suarez bit Italy’s Giorgio Chiellini at the World Cup in Brazil But old habits die hard — and this time Suarez attempted to bite his Barcelona teammate Lionel Messi Albeit jokingly Suarez and Messi during a Barca training session AP A video taken backstage after the UEFA Best Player in Europe awards were given out during the Champions League draw shows Suarez try to bite Messi and take his best player award away Suarez came behind the Argentine genius after a phenomenal season which saw him score 25 goals and create another 24 Messi quickly dodged as Suarez came at him like a snapping turtle The incident however clearly shows that Barcelona’s No 9 has accepted his mistakes of the past and is magnanimous enough to jest about it Later in the night Messi photobombed Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo Suarez has a history of biting — and has been banned for his antics thrice in his career including once during his time at Liverpool when he sunk his teeth into Chelsea defener Branislav Ivanovic He has since promised not to bite and has stayed true to his word Since his move to Barcelona the forward has formed a lethal partnership with Messi and Brazil’s star attacker Neymar Europe’s defending champions Barcelona were drawn alongside AS Roma Bate Borisov and Bayer Leverkusen in Group E New Delhi: Ashish Nehra has been the proverbial Phoenix rising from the ashes every time the Doubting Thomases write his cricketing epitaph And the ever-smiling pacer is far from finished even after hitting the wiser side of 30s enjoying his cricket as he outwits opposition batsmen with pace and guile "At my age (he will be 38 next month) I am still a fast bowler I was never the conventional 125-128 kmph bowler Even today with the new ball I set myself a target of bowling 138 kmph and I have to do that Speed is not everything but if need be I can crank it up to 140 plus in T20s also" Nehra told PTI in an interview Indian pacer Ashish Nehra Solaris Does it put pressure on him that even current skipper Virat Kohli wants him in team as much as a Sourav Ganguly or MS Dhoni did during his hey days "If anyone says that he doesn’t feel pressure at international level is lying But at this stage of my career more than pressure I feel a sense of responsibility as a senior cricketer – to help young bowlers with inputs "Me and MS are two guys from different age groups Our job is to bring a sense of calmness our experience in this team" What if India wants him during the 2019 50-over World Cup He breaks into laughter at the very suggestion "2019 is too far away and I can’t play that far at my age even though I never planned when I was young Even MS Dhoni who is two years younger to me may not be thinking that far ahead "Right now I am preparing for the Indian Premier League (IPL) since Delhi hasn’t qualified for (Vijay) Hazare Trophy Then there’s the Champions Trophy" Asked how much white ball cricket has evolved since the time he made his debut more than 15 years ago Nehra’s response is straight and to the point "Obviously with rule changes the game has evolved but basics of fast bowling remain the same You can bowl as many yorkers or slower deliveries But you have to bowl an outswinger inswinger and one straight delivery In India normally a tearaway quick faces problems with variations and ones who have variation are medium pacers to say the least It’s a complex phenomenon and Nehra tells why "In India if you are 140kmph plus bowler people are happy that the bloke is quick If he doesn’t get wickets then people would cite lack of variation being his problem "For a swing bowler inside 130 kmph his lack of wickets will be attributed to lack of pace But in international cricketpace alone can’t win you matches" said Nehra who has 157 wickets from 120 ODIs Nehra also busted the myth that one can consistently bowl at 150 kmph Not even Shoaib Akhtar or Brett Lee has done it consistently "Look I am not a great fan of speedometer where even slower ones are shown to be 140 kmph As far as 150 kmph is concerned I don’t think there’s anyone who can bowl that fast consistently May be 2-3 balls in an entire spell "Because it’s not humanly possible to bowl at that speed for long And then at 150 kmph the ball stops swinging which will make the bowler ineffective Rather if one can hit the right length at 140kmph and get it to swing he would have done a far better job" observed Nehra But fast bowling is a back breaking job and the body needs to be looked after well "Obviously bowling fast takes a lot of load on my body So I have to manage my body work on my routines for 4-5 hours daily It’s not easy but that’s how it’s supposed to be The endeavour is to play as long as possible I do strides short sprints Suppose you bowl 7 overs in nets it means you have had 42 strides" There’s a difference between cricket fitness and gym fitness and the senior player cites Dhoni’s example "MS Dhoni’s cricket fitness is amazing I am not saying go to the gym but there must be a plan For me 45 minutes of bowling same time for fielding and 35 minutes of batting during one session is equivalent gym work and it’s cricket fitness Gym work is to top up your cricket training" Nehra’s next assignment will be the IPLfor Sunrisers Hyderabad Ask him about rigours of playing a minimum 14 matches over six weeks Nehra replies "In IPL you cannot preserve yourself and try to bowl fast I cannot plan about IPL keeping Champions Trophy in mind "It all depends on how my body is responding If I am fit I might play all 14 and it might also be I can get injured before start But I cannot think of giving 70 percent in IPL That’s not what a professional does" he said He has had a series of injuries and asked if that could be a problem considering the Indian team needs him in England during Champions Trophy Nehra said: "It’s just that in India it’s very easy to create perception about a player without knowing if he is injured or unfit "Poor Mohammed Shami who has last played ODI in 2015 has had knee surgery and then hamstring In my case I have had too many freak injuries But at my age I don’t care about perceptions "If team management wants me and I am fit I would like to play the Champions Trophy I am preparing for it and that’s why I played two Vijay Hazare Trophy matches after 16 months It felt good" Nehra is a content man still very much in love with the game and doesn’t have any regrets save one – he should have accepted former coach Gary Kirsten’s offer of playing Test cricket back in 2009 when he was 30 years old "When I look back perhaps that’s one regret I have In 2013 when I played 6 Ranji Games in 6 weeks I realised that I should have accepted that offer from Gary to play Test matches From 30-34 I could have easily played four years of Test cricket and may have played another 30-35 matches But then that’s life" he concluded By: PTI | New Delhi | Updated: February 26 2017 7:37 pm Top News China has turned into a dominant sporting nation in the last two decades due to a comprehensive state-run policy that cultivates the chosen ones from the moment they are out of diapers feels the country’s air rifle shooting coach Li Jie an Olympic and a World Championship silver medalist The 37-year-old Li who clinched silver at the 2004 Athens Games is here with the Chinese contingent for the ongoing International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) World Cup China who had toppled United States from the top at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing proved that the outing at home wasn’t a fluke with another very successful showing at London four years later In most quadrennial sporting events in recent years the People’s Republic of China has been among the top two normally “China is strong because there is a very sound national scheme under which the government provides the greatest support for the development of sports and sportspersons and this applies to shooting as well” Li told PTI on the sidelines of the tournament at the Dr Karni Singh Shooting Range “As per the scheme at first the athlete has to show a great level of passion and then if he can back that with talent it’s done If this criterion is met the government supports the athlete from a very very young age” Li said Over the last two-three decades China has produced some of the finest athletes and Li believed the role played by these legends or “leaders” as he called them has been a driving force behind the country’s emergence as a leading sporting nation To corroborate his point he cited the example of Wang Yifu who in terms of number of Olympics medals is one of the most successful shooters of all times with six podium finishes including two gold at the Games “We have many great leaders who are tasked with developing each sport and in shooting we have the legendary Wang Yifu He has the passion made great sacrifices for development of the Chinese shooting team his contribution is immense” Li said of the man who clinched the air pistol gold medal at 1992 Barcelona Olympics and 2004 Athens Games “Thanks to the national policies we have numerous people who loves to get involved in shooting sport” Also he added “In China there is something called a comprehensive games held every four years where the best sportspersons compete and the standard of which is at par with top international tournaments Yes you can say these games are comparable to top international tournaments The emphasis is only on performance” Coming to the athletes he said: “It’s hard to measure the sacrifices they have made in their life-long pursuit This is true for other countries too as without them one can’t think of realising their goals in sports” For all the latest Sports News
