Seven Amazing Notes about Asian Games

Published

Asian Games

In the brick-and-mortar world of games, the stories of the amazing 18th Asian Games in Jakarta are flowing better than other sporting actions. Not just in Asia, the whole world is capturing the news of Asiad Games. The cities like Jakarta and Palembang have now become the major parts of Asia. Indeed, it is the perfect time to talk about the seven amazing facts about the Asian Games.

 

1: Was known as Far Eastern Championship Games

Before the 1951 Asian Games, this competition was known as the Far Eastern Championship Games. During that era, the nations like the Empire of Japan, the Philippines and China used to play on this tour. The first time this game was held in the year 1913. Now the fans and pundits know this play by the name of Asiad Games also.

2: New Delhi – The first nation to host?

In the year of 1951, the games were played for the very first time in India, who got independent in 1948. New Delhi, the capital of India, hosted the tournament after, Guru Dutt Sondhi, the Indian International Olympic Committee representative, felt that the concept of Far Eastern Championship Games is not good for the holistic development of sports in Asia, which we can see at the 18th Asian Games in Jakarta. Asian Games Federation accepted the idea of Asiad Games and declared New Delhi as the first nation to entertain the experience.

3: Big problems in 1962

Just like the 2018 Asian Games, Indonesia hosted the fourth edition of the Asiad Games. This time Jakarta and Palembang are hosting the competition. However, in 1962, only Jakarta took the efficiency to host the big event. Because of several political arguments, Indonesia didn’t allow Israel and Taiwan to take the participation. The several reports say that many religious issues also became one of the primary reasons for not allowing Taiwan and Israel to involve. With the effect of that, IOC took the sponsorship and set an example by removing Indonesia from its members’ list.

4- South Korea failed to host

In the golden year of 1970, South Korea received the chance to host Asiad Games. However, because of some financial issues, South Korea neglected to hostThey called it the security reasons. But the multiple sources made it clear that it happened because of having the money crises. Just like Jakarta and Palembang, the cities that are hosting the 2018 Asian Games, Seoul also got the opportunity to host but instead of that, Bangkok captured the chance to become the master nation. Now South Korea can even treat the Olympics. They took a great decision by saying no to host the function at that time. Nations should never host these types of tours if they didn’t have money to burn.

5: Thailand- A responsible nation

Pakistan received the chances to host the 1978 Asiad Games. However, they failed to hit the ground running. The several financial and political issues became the major reasons for not hosting the competition. Thailand again took the responsibility to host. The contribution of Thailand will now look nickel-and-dime for some. However, taking big responsibility, again and again, is not easy. The 18th Asian Games in Jakarta would not be possible without the contribution of Thailand. Sometimes these small-small things help the body to remain stable. The cities of Jakarta and Palembang should respect and feel fortunate to serve.

6: The year 1994

The 1994 Asiad Games welcomed some of the new nations like Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan, as they were coming after ending their relationship with the Soviet Union. For the first time in history, the games had been played in the capital city. Because of the Persian Gulf War, Iraq was abounded to participate. On the other hand, North Korea said no due to some political unrest. From the perspective of fans, it’s good that the 2018 Asian Games doesn’t hold that many problems. Jakarta and Palembang now have the responsibility to show to the world that even two cities can make the event successful without having any stipulation.

7: 18th Asian Games in Jakarta – different

Never before in the history of 18th Asian Games in Jakarta had two cities got the chance to hold represent the nation. Jakarta and Palembang are the first to host it together. It is going to be challenging for the two chosen cities to make it so successful. Are you ready to feel the magic of this event? Have your say in the comment section below?

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.
