Sakshi with the coveted Rani Laxmi Bai award Women’s tennis saw quite the tumultuous season in 2016 – there were two first-time slam winners Serena Williams won just one major two big stars missed huge chunks of the season for completely disparate reasons and a new World No 1 emerged However if the start of 2017 is anything to go by we might be in for an even more unpredictable year In Melbourne at the first slam of the year Serena and Angelique Kerber are the leading favourites but two Saturdays later it could be someone else holding the Australian Open trophy Here’s a preview of the women’s draw and how it could unfold Top quarter: World No 1 Angelique Kerber will be looking to defend her title AP Top seed Kerber heads into her first Grand Slam as the World No 1 with2000 points and the Daphne Akhurst Memorial Cup to defend However there are serious questions hovering over her form thanks to her 1-2 win-loss record in the new season One of these defeats was to 19-year-old upcoming star Daria Kasatkina and Kerber could face the Russian again in the fourth round Also lurking in this part of the draw is former top-10 player Eugenie Bouchard The Canadian is enjoying a revival of sorts after her sophomore slump but has never made it past the third round in Melbourne With a shot of confidence under her belt could she spring herself into the second week On the other end of this quarter is the other maiden slam winner from 2016 – big-hitter Garbine Muguruza The Spaniard wrestled some tough wins at Brisbane before eventually retiring in the semi-final due to a thigh injury If she is 100 percent fit she could easily book her spot in the last eight In a potential Kerber vs Muguruza quarter-final clash it’s the French Open champion who would have the advantage having won their last four encounters First round match to watch out for: Bouchard vs Louisa Chirico Semi-finalist: Kerber Second quarter: Elina Svitolina is seeded 11 and recently defeated the defending champion Angelique Kerber AFP Simona Halep headlines this part of the women’s draw and the fourth seed will be aiming to make her first semi-final appearance at the Australian Open Standing in her path is American Shelby Rogers in the first round and potentially comeback kid Ashleigh Barty in the second Olympic gold-medallist Monica Puig and seven-time major champion Venus Williams could both prove to be a handful for Halep in the next two rounds and given her current indifferent form it’s difficult to see her emerge as the winner from this quarter Ukaraine’s consistently-improving Elina Svitolina is seeded just outside the top 10 but this Australian Open could prove to be a breakthrough slam for her She has only made the quarter-final of a major once before but she has the talent and experience to repeat that feat in Melbourne Russians Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and eight seed Svetlana Kuznetsova are the possible hurdles in Svitolina’s path and the former defeated her compatriot just the week before the Australian Open in straight sets at Sydney Kuznetsova has struggled in the season so far and might be one of the early exits in the tournament Pavlyuchenkova leads the head-to-head against Svitolina however given the 11th seed’s recent run of results which includes a win over Kerber I believe she’d come out as the winner from that match First round match to watch out for: Katerina Siniakova vs Julia Goerges Semi-finalist: Svitolina Third quarter: Karolina Pliskova is in the form of her life and won the title in Brisbane to start 2017 AFP This is where things get really interesting Third seed Agnieszka Radwanska and fifth seed Karolina Pliskova are the leading seeded players in the third quarter which is all about the match-ups Radwanska’s draw appears to be full of landmines that she would be hoping to side-step past First up is Bulgaria’s Tsvetana Pironkova who knocked her out of the French Open in 2016 Then a potential second round against unpredictable giant-slayer Mirjana Lucic-Baroni One of Elena Vesnina Alize Cornet or Samantha Stosur could possibly be waiting for the Pole in the fourth round And if she manages to reach the quarters her projected opponent is in-form Pliskova A final at US Open last year seems to have done a world of good for Pliskova The Czech always had her powerful serve and groundstrokes at her disposal but she has discovered a sense of confidence over the latter half of the last season She started 2017 by winning Brisbane but was wary of talking up her slam chances and said the draw would be crucial for her chances She has a losing 1-2 record to Monica Niculescu and 12th seed Timea Bacsinszky in her part of the draw And to top it all she’s never defeated Radwanska in seven attempts However I predict 2017 to be a massive year for her and a deep run in Melbourne would be the perfect to jump start it First round to watch out for: Ana Konjuh vs Kristina Mladenovic Semi-finalist: Pliskova Bottom quarter: Serena Williams bidding for a 23rd Grand Slam crown at the tournament starting in Melbourne on Monday AFP Newly-engaged Serena has her eyes set on a historical 23rd Grand Slam title in Melbourne But the World No 2 will have to be on her toes from the very first round She hasn’t had the best preparation to the season losing in the second round at Auckland which was her first tournament since the US Open last year Her opening opponent is former top-10 player Belinda Bencic The Swiss has fallen down the rankings due to persistent injuries (the latest being a broken toe nail) but she did beat the American the last time she faced off against her Another former top-10 player Lucie Safarova could meet her in the second round Slovakian Dominika Cibulkova looms on the other side of the fourth quarter and her path is no bed of roses either She could face 30th seed Ekaterina Makarova in the third round who has a knack of doing really well at majors Sydney champion Johanna Konta or the resurgent Caroline Woniacki are likely to be on the other side of the net for Cibulkova in the fourth round Also keep an eye out for Japan’s Naomi Osaka who is fast climbing up the rankings The 19-year-old was named newcomer of the year in 2016 and is a dangerous unseeded opponent First round to watch out for: Serena vs Bencic Semi-finalist: Serena Free

right one at the time as there was significant doubt from even people off the field New Zealand coach Mike Hesson has said File photo of New Zealand coach Mike Hesson Reuters Smith was on 14 when he was trapped in front by Trent Boult who was convinced he had struck a major blow to Australia’s innings in the first one-day international in Sydney on Sunday The appeal however was turned down by umpire Mick Martell and New Zealand captain Kane Williamson chose not to review Television replays however showed the on-field decision would have been overturned Smith who told reporters that he felt he was out and relieved the visitors did not review went on to make 164 to guide his side to 324 for eight before they bowled New Zealand out for 256 in 442 overs to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series "There was plenty of chat afterwards about that" Hesson told reporters in Sydney on Monday "There were two sounds and the possibility of an inside edge "From our angle we heard two noises Macca (batting coach Craig McMillan) and I were going ‘he’s probably nicked it’ and clearly he didn’t "Generally (Williamson) looks to the guy square on in terms of height the keeper has a good look is sometimes obscured first slip sometimes has a better look and he was unsure "All that’s got to happen pretty quickly It was obviously pretty costly in the end" That decision was not the only thing to go wrong with the side making uncharacteristic errors in the field including several dropped catches while their death bowling was too expensive going for 110 runs in the final 10 overs Debutant Lockie Ferguson also bowled four no balls gifting Australia a free hit on the next delivery as he conceded 73 runs from nine overs Hesson however said a bout of cramp may have affected the 25-year-old who still impressed with his pace that hurried up the Australian batsmen "He conceded a lot with his extras and a lot of that was cramping and loss of stride length" Hesson added "Those things happen and can be tidied up pretty quickly once he gets used to that kind of intensity "We want him to run in and bowl quick and create opportunity We certainly saw some good signs" New Delhi: India’s senior

perhaps delivered a judgment befitting India: On God: there should be no dispute On property: compromise On history: move on At first glancebased on the summariesthis has all the elements of an artfully worked out set of fine distinctions and complex historical judgments Justice SU Khanfor instancein his summary seems to recognise the special sanctity of the spot for Hindus as the birthplace of Ram He seems to recognise the existence of temple ruins at the location But he does not accept the contention that Babur demolished the temple; the ruin predates the temple They all recognise that the site has been jointly used in various ways They seem to recognise that long usage has some bearing on who has rights And they divide the property More controversiallythe judgment is seen as sanctifying the appearance of idols on the site in 1949 The full grounds on the basis of which these conclusions have been reached will have to be unpacked in the weeks to come But the symbolism of the current moment is powerful In the immediate contextit is important to recognise the three important ways the judgment is likely to be criticised And it is equally important to resist the temptation to do so unthinkingly On historymany will be disquieted by the fact that the judgment seems to legitimise the gradual appropriation of the site that began with the placing of idols in 1949 But it would be a mistake to read the judgment this way for two reasons Onewe should remember that nothing in this judgment exonerates the thuggish acts of demolition carried out in 1992 Indeedarguablyit now liberates the courts from the danger of being caught up in the vortex of communal politics As an institutionit can mete out punishment to those who took the law into their own hands without inhibition Two1949 was a benchmark in the sense that the event happened in independent India But the court seems to recognise that that event itself cannot be divorcedlegally or historicallyfrom the prehistory of the dispute But it revisits the history for closing a chapter rather than opening new wounds While the exact grounds of Justice Khans conclusions await analysisthe rhetorical effect is powerful: you can acknowledge the birthplace of Ram without blaming Babur as responsible for its destruction The legal niceties of this will need to be unpacked; as a historical resolutionit displays a subtle sensibility The second pressure is going to come on the property issue Is the suggestion that the property be divided into three parts a legally compelling resolution While everyone has the right to appealit would be a mistake for any side to go for a maximalist position For that would be to overturn what the court seems to be saying It is acknowledging in an elliptical way that the title suit is complicated Any ambition to establish the singularity of claims will reveal more about the relentlessness of the plaintiffs in pursuit of property than it will do justice to the complex issues involved in this dispute In effectthe claim that the property has beenhistorically speakingjointly used is both a reminder and an exhortation that coexistence in a literal sense is possible The third pressure is going to come from those who will find objectionable the courts assertion that this indeed is Ram Janmabhoomi Has the court not pronounced on a claim it has no competence to pronounce on Againthe judgment will bear careful reading But from the summary it appears that all the court has relied on is a proposition that is plausible: that for a long time many Hindus have regarded this as Rams birthplace This proposition is all you need to say that there is legitimate disputeand an alternative claimant to the site Denying this proposition would not have been avoiding questions of faith and theology It would rather have been seen as simply and wilfully overlooking a history of representations and beliefs necessary to understanding the character of the site One can still argue that the court has come out the wrong way But what the court has not done is validate faith in a crude sense; it seems to be saying that facts about the faith are relevant to this dispute Each of these three critiquesif pursued assiduouslywill have political consequences If the property rights claims are agitated with fervourby any sideit will simply signal veniality in the face of an enormously sensitive and historically complex issue If the historical claims are contested with relentlessnessit will simply keep India trapped in old historical debates that have no resolution outside the ideologies of those who pursue those historical claims And if issues of faith are reopenedit will polarise society once again The acknowledgement that this site be regarded for this purpose as the birthplace of Ram isif anythingan attempt to de-politicise religion Our standard distinctions between faith and reasonbetween myth and historydo injustice to what the court had to grapple here Whether Ram is an artefact of faith or reasonof myth or historyeternal or contingentreal or non-existentcan be debated But the court seems to recognise that that discussion cannot simply wish away the forms of self-consciousness that have characterised Indian society Edmund Burke once saidrightlythat religious wars can be incited by denying religion altogether The court seems to accommodate its claimswithout jeopardising the secular character of the state This will not satisfy purists But it is not an implausible way of strengthening secularism It is hard not to think of the moral carnage that has been associated with the Ayodhya movement The process of healing and faith in Indian institutions will be strengthened if those guilty of violence are punished This verdict is not unassailablebut it seems like a workable compromise Some may object to the fact that it seems too much like a compromisea set of brokered deals rather than neat first principles But the blunt truth is that most of our jurisprudence on the deepest issues that have divided us have this characterwhether it is on reservationsor Mulki rules in Hyderabad The question to ask is not whether it is a compromise The question to ask is whether the compromise takes us forward in the direction of the constitutional values we cherish The writer is presidentCentre for Policy ResearchDelhi

limited-overs series between India and England — three ODIs and three T20 Internationals — is played without any hitch According to a source close to the panel the committee in the wake of reports that the ousted Indian cricket officialdom is in a combative mood and might create impediments wants to make watertight arrangements to avert any possible situation that could impact the schedule or smooth hosting of the matches BCCI chief executive Rahul Johri is likely to take part in the meeting and will be apprised of the plans to organise a hassle-free series Some former BCCI functionaries reportedly tried to coax the Cricket Club of India (CCI) not to host the limited-overs warm-up fixture between India ‘A’ and England on Tuesday But they failed in their attempt The first warm-up game was played in front of a decent turnout The Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA) said to be the flag-bearer of the alleged rebellion has already written to the BCCI expressing its inability to host two four-day games between India U-19 and England U-19 in February “Ineligible” office-bearers from 24 states had an informal meeting in Bangalore last Saturday under the leadership of the former ICC and BCCI chief N Srinivasan The Lodha Committee will also address various queries from different state associations during Wednesday’s meeting It is also expected to set the roadmap for the proposed players’ body and the BCCI elections after adopting the reforms But a contingency plan in case of any disruption for the India-England series will top the list Some former BCCI officials however have
