Indian girls blank South Africa

Wroclaw (Poland), July 23 (IANS) Indian girls, seeded sixth, blanked South Africa 3-0 in their first match in Group C of the World Junior Women's Team Squash Championships here.

Wroclaw (Poland), July 23 — Indian girls, seeded sixth, blanked South Africa 3-0 in their first match in Group C of the World Junior Women's Team Squash Championships here.

Sachika Ingale, who finished highest amongst Indians in the individual championships, defeated Makgosi Peloakgosi 11-2, 11-5, 5-11, 11-9, in the first singles Monday.

Harshit Kaur Jawanda overcame Megan Page 11-8, 12-10, 5-11, 11-6, in the next match and Lakshya Ragavendran defeated Kacey-Leigh Dodd 12-14, 11-6, 11-4, 11-4, for a 3-0 verdict.

Ingale got off to a great start, dropping just seven points in the first two games and looked on course for an easy 3-0 win. However, Ingale twisted her knee in the third and took a three-minute medical time out. The Indian was distracted on her return and lost the third 5-11.

Though Ingale was not her fluent self in the fourth game, she managed to work her opponent around to win the game 11-9 and put India 1-0 ahead.

In the battle of the spearheads, Jawanda let the nerves get the better of her and did not play to her potential. Page took full advantage to run Jawanda close, threatening to take the second game.

The Indian clung on to win the second but lost the third before recovering in time to win the fourth and give India the tie.

In the inconsequential final match, Raghavendran started aggressively but found the tin or hit the centre of the court to allow Dodd easy points. The Indian realised her folly, reined in the aggression and played a controlled game to win the next three games and seal a 3-0 win for the Indians.

India will play third seeds England in their second tie.

The results:

Group C: India beat South Africa 3-0 (Sachika Ingale bt Makgosi Peloakgosi 11-2, 11-5, 5-11, 11-9; Harshit Kaur Jawanda bt Megan Page 11-8, 12-10, 5-11, 11-6; Lakshya Ragavendran bt Kacey-Leigh Dodd 12-14, 11-6, 11-4, 11-4).

Cesc Fabregas does the Macarena for Chelsea initiation

Jul 30 2014 2:29pm CDT | Source: SBNation

Cesc Fabregas had to pick a dance for his Chelsea initiation. He picked the Macarena. Cesc Fabregas is no James Rodriguez. He's no Leroy Fer. He's sure as hell not South Africa 2010. He's not even Daniel Sturridge. How does one mess up the Macarena? It's the dance made for kindergardeners, all of whom do it better than this adult, athletic, professional footballer. Barcelona paid a lot of mo ...

Cheetahs Youngster Nails 80M Penalty

Jul 30 2014 5:19am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The high altitude in parts of South Africa has always been known to help with long-range efforts at goal, but this takes the biscuit from Cheetahs under–19 player Gerrie Labuschagne. The wing launched a kick at the posts from 80 metres, as reported by ESPNScrum, and it sailed over the cross bar at the other end, much to the delight of his on-looking teammates. There have been plenty of long–range efforts in more h ...
