Arunachal sport dept rename trophy after martyr jawan

first_imgItanagar, Nov 23 (PTI) The sports department in Arunachal Pradesh has officially adopted the decision of Chief Minister Pema Khandu of renaming the Chief Minister?s Trophy for Football and Volleyball (mens and womens) after martyr Hangpan Dada. Khandu made this decision during the State Development Council (SDC) meeting convened under his chairmanship here yesterday. The state-level trophy for football and volleyball, both in men and women categories, would henceforth be called as Hangpan Dada Memorial Trophy. Havildar Dada, who died in Kupwara on May 27 this year after killing three terrorists, was awarded Ashok Chakra on the eve of Independence Day by President Pranab Mukherjee. Dada, 36, hailed from Boduria village in Tirap district, was posted in the high mountainous region in North Kashmir since late last year. The trophy, now renamed in his memory, had been launched at Sangay Lhaden Sports Academy at Chimpu in November 2013 by the then Chief Minister NabamTuki. The Sports Department holds competitions for men and women from the block level. The winners of block level competitions then compete in the district level, followed by state level competition. Finals of the competitions coincide with statehood day celebrations every year. The meeting was attended by Sports and Youth Affairs Minister Rajesh Tacho, Parliamentary Secretary Nyamar Karbak, Chairman, Sports Authority of Arunachal Gora Makik, Secretary Sports and Youth Affairs Dani Salu, Directors of Sports and Youth Affairs and other departmental officials, the release added.

ICC Champions Trophy final: Virat Kohli impressed with Pakistan’s turnaround, says India focused on their own skills

first_imgPakistan’s “magnificent turnaround” has impressed Virat Kohli but the India captain said there was nothing that his side needed to be overtly concerned about ahead of the ICC Champions Trophy final against the arch-foes on Sunday.India eased past Bangladesh to enter the finals while Pakistan got the better of more fancied England in their semifinal clash.India have already beaten Pakistan in the ongoing tournament during the preliminary stage.Speaking about what is expected to be a high-voltage second clash, Kohli was nonchalant.”What we are going to try to do is repeat the similar sort of cricket that we have played so far, knowing the strengths and weaknesses they have. Obviously, we will have to plan a bit according to that, but I don’t know if there’s much that we need to change as a team,” he said.”I don’t think we need to look too far away from what we are doing as a group, I think focus on our skills and our abilities and believe in ourselves on that particular day, and we will give ourselves a good chance to go out there and do some good things for the team,” he added. (ICC Champions Trophy: Sourav Ganguly and Harbhajan Singh blast Aamer Sohail’s match-fixing claims)Asked if India made a statement to their bitter rivals with the nine-wicket triumph over Bangladesh on Thursday, Kohli dismissed the suggestion.”There are no statements in this game, honestly. On the day you arrive, if you are not feeling well mentally, it doesn’t matter whether you are 100 or whether you had a convincing victory.

That’s how this game goes, and that’s the beauty of this game,” said Kohli when asked if Pakistan will be rattled by India’s performance.”No one is a winner beforehand, and you can’t predict anything in this game. We have seen some really surprising results, and it’s been amazing for the fans to watch and for the players to be a part of, as well. We just want to enjoy the finals and we deserve to be there,” the skipper had a calm confidence in his tone.

We are not going to take anything for granted for sure. It doesn’t matter whether we win by nine wickets, we win by one wicket. We are just going to go there and try to do the same things again and again. Be bowling as a team, and hopefully the results will come,” he added.He was all praise for Pakistan team’s turnaround in the competition.”Yeah, I am very impressed. The turnaround has been magnificent. Obviously, if you reach the finals, you have to play some good cricket, and credit to them, they have turned around things for themselves really well.”They have beaten sides that looked really strong against them, but the belief just showed on the field the way they played together as a team, and you know, regardless of who you play in the finals, it’s always going to be challenging because once you start thinking that it’s a big game, then your mindset changes,” the skipper gave a peek into the mindset of an international team.last_img read more
