The chance of participation of boxer
MUHAMMAD ALI QAMAR in Olympic Games in Athens has gone out of hand due to a controversial judgement of the jury at Lahore. But despite that the Indian Boxing team will not register any formal complaints as it was in Pakistatn also “to win hearts”. In the pre-quarter match of light fly weight in Lahore on 7 May, the Commonwealth gold medal winner Qamar fought against Japanese boxer Noshevki Akarshi. The match was tied at 28-28 points. The Japanese boxer was later announced victorious on the basis of punching. As against Qamar’s 101, Akarshi had 109 points on his side. Indian team manager Set Bannerjee said later that the decision was liked neither by media nor by the audiences. But we accept it in spirit of the game, Bannerjee said. He said the purpose of our tour to Pakistan was not only to get a berth in the Olympics but also to win hearts. However, Indian coach GS Sindhu was angry after announcement of the decision. He said we hoped Qamar would bring medals to India and that he would qualify for the Olympics. See how he has been deprived even after performing well. Of course Qamar too was sad with the decision. After all, he is the undeserving loser.

For India’s fast bowler
ZAHEER KHAN fashion could be the next passion. Celebrated fashion designers are highly impressed with him. During the Lakme India Fashion Week, Zaheer cast his spell with his team. His pace and confidence attracted the attention of the fashion designers present at the function. Dress designers Nikhil and Shantanu who took the crickters to the romp are highly influenced by Zaheer. They consider his presentation like that of a professional model.

Had Zaheer done some rehearsal , Nikhil could have been bowled over but who would want to lose Zaheer to modeling while cricket needs his skill and spells.
