    Why is india not sending cricket teams to asian games?? We could more or less win 2 golds(men, women) there, even if we send India B team(leave alone india A team). Those bozos in BCCI and IOA should be fired.:mad::mad:

    It's a little bit sad, that a private org has exclusive control over the national cricket team. They couldve atleast sent a B team, it wouldve been good enough to win. the defending Champions are Bangladesh :D


    Anyway 1 more bronze Asian Games LIVE: India win bronze medal in women's badminton team event | Zee News :third:


    Saina Nehwal won her match, P.V Sindhu couldve won but then the went on to a third game and she lost. The other two matches were just too easy for the Koreans.

    Saurov Ghosal wins Silver in singles squash :second: ! He is the first indian to win a silver medal in squash. Couldve been a Gold easily, he was leading 2-0 and the third set went to two tie breaker points. But the Kuwaiti held his nerve and made a big come back.

    Abhinav Bindra playing in his last match won the bronze medal :third:

    Correct me if I am wrong, but is not BCCI a private entity, not directly controlled by the GoI?

    A private entity has no "obligation" to do anything. If you want, you can ask the govt to sponsor a national team but you cant force a private entity to do it for you.

    Of course. Hence they were not forced. But I feel they should have sent one.

    Indian Men's Team Clinches Silver in 25m Center Fire Pistol :second:

    INCHEON: India bagged their second silver in the 17th Asian Games as the men's shooting team finished second in the 25 metre center fire pistol at the Ongnyeon International Shooting Range here Friday. The Indian trio of Pemba Tamang, Gurpreet Singh and Vijay Kumar scored a combined 1740-68x to finish behind China's team of Yongde Jin, Chuanlin Li and Feng Ding, who fired 1742-56x to take gold. For India, Tamang shot 288-22x (93, 99, 96 in precision and 99, 97, 97 in rapid) while Gurpreet scored 292-25x (98, 99, 95 in precision and 95, 96, 97 in rapid). 2012 Olympic silver medallist Vijay shot 285-21x (95, 94, 96 in precision and 100, 98, 96 in rapid) to help India get their 16th overall medal and eighth from the shooting range. South Korea, with the team of Youngmin Kim, Daekyu Jang and Jinil Kim, scored 1739-54x to win bronze ahead of Vietnam. However, none of the Indians managed to finish on the podium in the individual event. Pemba Tamang, Gurpreet and Vijay finished eighth, ninth and 12th respectively. The individual gold went to Qatar's Oleg Engachev while China's Jin took silver and Singapore's Bin Gai won bronze.
