Pooja Dhanda Fails to Make Impact

Published

asian-games-2018

After losing the Bronze Medal match against Altantsetsegiin Battsetseg at the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta – Pooja Dhanda has again missed a chance to show to the world that she has all the skills to do anything in the brick-and-mortar world of wrestling. The 24-year-old was so confident of winning a medal for India at Asian Games but failed to deliver in the end.

There is no doubt that the stage of Asiad Games is the best as far as showing your worth for the Olympic Games. However, it doesn’t mean displeasing at 2018 Asian Games will be the end of Pooja’s tenure. Because following the game of wrestling fewer times, only some handful of people know how good Pooja is.

2018 PWL – The Birthplace

Before the Pro Wrestling League season three, which happened in the month of January this year, no many had seen the girl from Haryana. However, after beating the stars like Marwa Amri, Odunayo Adekuoroye, and Helen Maroulis – the 24-year-old made it too clear that she is the one to look for. NCR Punjab Royals player became the poster girl. Many were expecting Pooja to win the Gold Medal at the 2018 CWG and 18th Asian Games in Jakarta. While in Australia, Pooja managed to win a Silver after losing the match against Odunayo Adekuoroye. On the other hand, she failed to win any medal for India at Asian Games. Maybe in the coming PWL season, Dhanda can knock over every blade of grass to regain her full power and strength in order to conquer at the Olympics and Asiad Games. The 2018 Asian Games didn’t flow like a river. Still, It doesn’t mean that this is the end.

Improvement Pooja Requires 

At the one end, the format of PWL suites the style of Pooja fantastically well because of playing one bout on a day. At the other end, every other major competition demands five to six bouts in order to win a medal. Like the fans have just seen at the 18th Asian Games in Jakarta. Taking the reference from the world’s richest professional grappling league, it is more than clear that when it comes to playing long; this Indian star fails to win the bouts. In the beginning, Pooja did well for India at Asian Games but failed to win the following bouts afterward.

More Practice

Every athlete wants to become the will of the wisps and to reach that level; practice becomes the key to success. The Haryanvi girl should remember what happened to her at 2018 Asian Games to make her stamina much better than one could ever imagine. Not winning a medal once doesn’t mean that it will never come. The age is with her, and she can win the Gold Medal for India at the 2022 Asiad Games, which will happen in Hangzhou, China. At the age bright of 28, the grappler from Budana can grow the chances of India at Asian Games. The 18th Asian Games in Jakarta is showing the development and power of India. Adding others, who failed, will surely increase the value of a nation.

Olympics – Hard challenge

Facing Kaori Icho from Japan, Valeria Koblova from Russia and Marwa Amri from the United States of America will be as hard as climbing Mount Everest for the Indian grappler as they are the top-top nemesis in the weight category of Pooja (58kg). The challenge there will become too hard to adjust for her if she denies learning from her happened crashes. Other than Pooja, the 18th Asian Games in Jakarta became a fantastic show form some Indian wrestlers. However, the show remained lackluster for Sakshi Malik. The 2016 Olympic Bronze Medalist Sakshi Malik also failed to win her Bronze Medal match at the 2018 Asian Games. Before coming to Indonesia, Sakshi had managed to win a Bronze at the 2018 CWG but failed to repeat the story for India at 2018 Asian Games. Vinesh Phogat and Bajrang Punia, on the other hand, made the country’s tricolor sky high. What makes the thing even better was Vinesh’s performance, as she became the first Indian woman wrestler to win a Gold Medal at the Asiad Games Pooja Dhanda can do in the coming future what Vinesh and Bajrang have already done for India at Asian Games.

Dhoni Slays It Again in 3rd ODI

India vs Australia: Melbourne, In the words of the aggressive captain, who is known for his clear cut words”No one is more committed to Indian cricket, than MS Dhoni and batting at number five is the ideal spot for him.” Virat Kohli came forward to support the former Captain cool.

Dhoni was criticized for his slow batting in the ODI series opener in Sydney before he made the contribution in winning the match in Adelaide and Melbourne ODIs. Virat is proud of his team and has attributed his success to the team and former captain.

He was all praises for the former Captain and stood beside him in the tough times. In the words of Virat”I think firstly as a team we are very happy for Dhoni that he is amongst the runs because it is very important to get runs under your belt to get that rhythm and confidence back.

Especially when you have not been playing so much international cricket,” said the India captain at the post-match press conference.

“Many things happen outside. People say a lot of things but as an individual, we know that there is no one more committed to Indian cricket than Dhoni and people should let him have his space because he has contributed so much for the nation.

“They should let him figure out things on his own and what he needs to do. He is one of the most intelligent cricketers and he is not someone who is not aware of what needs to be done. As a team, we are totally in sync with what he is doing and we are all very happy for him.

Dhoni’s contribution in winning the ODI cannot be denied and his unbeaten 87- run on Friday and at Adelaide, his half-century was all that was enough to shut the critics. Dhoni is best suited to bat at five as per the strategy of the team and he himself feels comfortable to bat at any position.

The Historic Win of India vs Australia

By Far This Is My Best Achievement”: Virat Kohli Rates Test Series Win In Australia Above World Cup Victory. The Blue Squad has done us proud after the 11th attempt in the last 70 years it is a test series that they have won in Down Under. Virat Kohli has again proved his worth as the captain of Indian Cricket Team and has brought the trophy and the title that was much awaited.

He has created history and is the first Indian and Asian Captain to win a test series in Australia, after the fourth and the final Test ended in a draw in Sydney on Sunday. The young aggressive captain has put the critics to shut after the glorious win and he himself scored 282 runs in the four-Test series that also has a century.

It was not only the moment but the entire series and gesture by the Captain that made the country so proud. He has risen from his individual stature and claimed it to be the efforts and dedication of the team that he is leading that resulted in the glorious win.

This was a special achievement and by far the best moment of his cricket career.

Not only his game it is the skill of the team that he has helped him to win and he said in a post-match presentation “ Firstly I want to say, but I’ve also never been more proud of a team than this one.

The culture we’ve been able to build over the last 12 months. Our transition started here when I became the captain for the first time.’ Beautiful words to describe the beautiful feeling of winning a series that have created history.

Kohli was also the part of Indian ODI team that won the ICC World Cup in 2011. The captain then was MS Dhoni. Still, the present captain and Indian skipper claim this win even above the previous win.

And has commented “By far this is my best achievement. Has to be on top of the pile. When we won the World Cup, I was a young player. I saw the others getting emotional,” 

Well previously also the captain has won test series and this is his fourth win in the Test series and it surely makes the team and is very proud.

Cheteshwar Pujara and Rishabh Pant

Pujara has faced 1258* deliveries in the series which itself is a record by an Indian cricketer in a Test Series in the Australian ground, this record has broken the record of Rahul Dravid. His batting style and cricket playing talent have been applauded and he is the viral sensation, the fans have down poured their positive comments and well wishes for this iconic player.

His talent and determination know no boundaries but surely his balls cross the boundary. He got some 193 runs in 373 deliveries that have 22 fours (dismissed caught and bowled by Nathan Lyon of day 2) and this is an incredible achievement for any Indian batsman in a foreign land.

This was the first inning stat and again if he is on the strike the figure will be huge; he is the defensive batsman and will surely defend the title and series for India.

The other man in blue who is young and naïve worth mentioning is Rishabh Pant. The young lad merely 20 goes unbeaten in his second Test and has scored 159.

A post shared by Rishabh Pant (@rishabpant) on

Rishabh Pant along with MS Dhoni and Nayan Mongia is the only wicketkeeper to score a Test century in Australia. In the 137 deliveries, he scored 159 and not out.

Former captain Azharuddin was in all praises for this young talent and in an interview and claimed “Rishabh Pant batted really well but needs to improve his wicket keeping. I was surprised that he hit only one six in his unbeaten knock. But he played very well and I feel India has found a batsman similar to Adam Gilchrist,”

The young talent needs to be a bit more polished to enter the team for T20 and ODI series. He is thus not in the team against Australia and New Zealand for the ODI but will be onboard for the World Cup in England and Wales that is scheduled later in this year.

The boy is young and needs a bit more mature approach towards the game. There is too much of game in him, he is growing and has matured in his game and is surely a good wicketkeeper and an overall keeper for the team.

Well, the former cricketers like Aakash Chopra, Nikhil Chopra and many more have termed him to be mandatory for the World Cup. The two men and the team collectively make sure that history is rewritten and the team who has never won test series in Australia will get the series in their name.
