sixth goal Reuters Neymar got the equaliser and the 222 million man later completed the rout in stunning style after further goals from Adrien Rabiot an Edinson Cavani penalty Javier Pastore and Layvin Kurzawa Marco Verratti was sent off for PSG midway through the second half and Toulouse at one point came back to 3-2 but they were ultimately blown away by the world’s most expensive player "I feel very happy and relaxed I feel at home I am adapting as quickly as possible I am getting better physically and I can still improve yet" the 25-year-old said ominously after the game It was PSG’s third win in as many league outings this season and they join reigning champions Monaco and Saint-Etienne in having the maximum nine points to their name Saint-Etienne visit the French capital next Friday and will be dreading the prospect after this latest exhibition from PSG’s new superstar Neymar had a part in all of his side’s goals in last week’s 3-0 win at Guingamp scoring one in his first game in French football since his stunning world-record transfer and he was again at the centre of everything here Gradel making his first appearance for Toulouse on loan from Bournemouth volleyed the away side in front in the 18th minute but Neymar had already seen a shot strike the top of the bar before that The Brazilian then saw a header tipped onto the post by Alban Lafont before he equalised just after the half-hour setting up Rabiot for a shot that was pushed out by the away goalkeeper before following in to convert the loose ball The same duo combined as PSG went in front Rabiot playing a one-two with Neymar before beating Lafont with a low strike into the bottom corner from 25 yards ‘Class’ The second half was quieter before coming to life after Verratti was harshly shown a second

corner with 12 minutes left to make it 3-2 Yet there was to be no grandstand finish from the visitors as instead substitute Pastore — the man who has lost his place to accommodate Neymar — curled in a superb fourth Neymar’s corner was headed in by Kurzawa But Neymar had to have the last word and somehow engineered himself space in the area in stoppage time before finishing to make it 6-2 and bring the Parc des Princes crowd to its feet "If I forget the fact I am the Toulouse coach it is good for football to see that kind of class" said opposition boss Pascal Dupraz Elsewhere on Sunday Marcelo

stadium into the Thyagaraj Sports Complex in Delhi to kick-start the ninth week of the 12-week-long tournament neither were there clear favourites nor confirmed eliminations This was not be the case anymore as the fogginess around the table cleared at the end of the ninth week that saw the home team Dabang Delhi falling for the home curse and the eliminators door opening a tad bit wider for a few teams in the bottom half of both zones With just three more weeks of league action here’s a list of takeaways from an action-packed Delhi leg: The home curse continues to loom large It was a disappointing home leg for the Dabang Delhi team which lost all six games Image Courtesy: PKL official website The only common thread between the nine weeks of action so far has been the horrendous form of the home teams barring Gujarat Fortunegiants who remained unbeaten and Patna Pirates who won four out of their six matches With the Haryana Steelers Bengaluru Bulls U Mumba and Bengal Warriors winning just two out of six matches and UP Yoddha managing a solitary win and a tie the home curse seemed to be spreading faster with every passing week Till the Delhi leg happened Telugu Titans had the misfortune of being the worst performing team on the home leg when they lost five out of their six home games Then Dabang Delhi had one of their worst ever runs in Pro Kabaddi League across all seasons They were outplayed and outclassed by every team and managed just a solitary point from a possible 30 Delhi couldn’t win a single match on their home turf and continued to languish in the bottom of the Zone A table with a nine match winless streak The form of Dabang Delhi has always been sketchy across the previous four seasons but the team took a major hit this season with a point difference of a whopping -109 points telling the story of the Delhi team in the Pro Kabaddi League season 5 Teams decide not to share points One other commonality from Week 1 in Hyderabad to Week 8 in Ranchi has been the number of ties that happened across all the legs No team could relax even a bit as there were instances of teams being forced to embrace a defeat after enjoying a strong lead in the first half and clinching victories from the brink of certain defeat Since the opening week in Hyderabad every leg has seen an encounter that saw teams share the spoils Though the fans of Delhi were part of some thrilling encounters that saw 6 out of the 11 matches ending with less than five points separating both the teams they failed to witness a single drawn encounter that had become the norm in Season 5 of Pro Kabaddi league Telugu Titans- A tale of too little too late The Telugu Titans have shown a semblance of their capabilities late into the tournament Image courtesy: PKL official website The Rahul Chaudhari-led team from Hyderabad kick-started the Season 5 with a win and have faltered ever since in every leg The Telugu Titans came into the Delhi leg with just four wins in their 17 matches and a spot in the knock-out stages being a distant dream The team that had finished second in the points table in Season 2 and 4 of PKL were one of the major gainers from the Delhi leg Though the team did have their moments in this year’s PKL it became a rarity and came few and far in between The team didn’t live up to its billing and were slowly sinking into oblivion in the 2017 installment till the team rallied around its captain Rahul Chaudhari to bring a semblance of resurgence to their flagging fortunes But would this upswing result in result in something substantial for the Telugu Titans depends on them continuing their winning form in their three remaining matches and a lot of other results going their way A place in the eliminators might be a pipe dream for the Telugu Titans now but there certainly seems to be a flicker of light that has started to shine at the end Will theleaders stay on top till late October Zone A is now led by the newcomers Haryana Steelers and Gujarat Fortunegiants who have played 18 and 16 games respectively However Puneri Paltan are strong contenders for the top spot just 12 points away and having played six games lesser than the table toppers Though the Season 1 champions Jaipur Pink Panthers still stand a chance to make it to the knock-outs their present form and persisting injury woes makes it a long shot for the Manjeet Chhillar-led team After a shaky start to this edition the impressive comeback of Season 2 champions U Mumba makes them the other major contender from Zone A who have a foot firmly in the door The biggest concern for the Anup Kumar-led team will be the lack of matches and their qualification hinging on the results of the other teams in a zone that is rightly referred to be the zone of death Zone B seems to be much more settled with defending champions Patna Pirates Bengal Warriors having cleared their paths to the knock-out stages with four matches to go The third place is now being held by the UP Yoddha and they might just hold on to that unless Tamil Thalaivas continue their new-found ability to win the crucial moments or the Telugu Titans pull off something miraculous Tamil Thalaivas – Peaking at the right time The resurgent Tamil Thalaivas side Image courtesy: PKL official website Prior to the Delhi leg Tamil Thalaivas a predominantly young team managed just two wins out of their eleven games and were at the bottom of a table that had the likes of Bengaluru Bulls and Telugu Titans who were themselves battling with a torrid season With 16 out of the 25 players in their squad being first-timers in the PKL the team from Tamil Nadu were burdened by the patchy form of their captain and marquee player Ajay Thakur and the lack of experience of the young team to finish off close matches Barring a single match where Tamil Thalaivas lost by a 11-point margin every encounter has been a closely fought one with the point deficit not exceeding five points They seemed to not be able to make the final push that would see the team first across the finish line However the team from Tamil Nadu where the sport of Kabaddi is said to have originated have learnt from their past mistakes and worked on this exact issue The team has started to rally around Ajay Thakur who has now regained his form and has led his team from the front Thakur and the young raider Prapanjan have been the architects of those Tamil Thalaivas wins in the thrilling matches in Delhi With nine matches left to play and considering the new-found ability of the Thalaivas to finish on the right side of a close match they seem to now have a solid chance in qualifying for the knock-out stages The tournament seems to have just started for the Thalaivas and a lot of other things has to work in favour of the new-comers to facilitate their hopes of reaching the business end of the season With the team now moving on to home turf it would be interesting to see if the Tamil Thalaivas continue their resurgent run and break the home jinx or succumb to the pressure of performing in front of a spirited home crowd Written by Vishal Menon | New Delhi | Updated: February 25 2017 9:56 am In the ODI series Shubman Gill scored 350 runs in four Under-19 games Top News SHUBMAN GILL was barely 10 but he remembers the dropped jaw that had exaggerated the broad and toothy smile on his face It was 2010 and the IPL season was in full swing Standing at the PCA Ground in Mohali he pinched himself when he saw Sachin Tendulkar arrive in his shiny blue Mumbai Indians jersey for the customary pre-match practice session Being the ball boy gave Shubman access to the whole gamut of IPL players But the star-struck youngster’s gaze was fixed intently at one man As Sachin finished his stint at the nets and started his walk back to the pavilion Shubman could not hide his excitement anymore He would dart across and fall at the maestro’s feet Taken aback by the young boy’s gesture Sachin takes him by the arm and tells him: “Mera pair kyon chhoo rahe ho… pair chhoona hain toh sirf apne parents ka” There is a tinge of embarrassment when Shubman recalls that incident now “What can I say… meeting Sachin was like a dream come true for me” he quips rather sheepishly Like most other youngsters of his age it’s no surprise that it was Sachin Tendulkar who had shaped the cricketing aspirations of the lad from Punjab’s Ferozpur district Sachin’s posters adorned the walls of his room in Mohali from the time he could remember There were days when he would pose in front of the mirror in a similar batting stance and practise those cover drives for hours together Since that fan moment Shubman has gone from strength to strength amassing runs in junior cricket with the same unbridled glee in which he had first sighted his idol The cricketing world would get a fleeting glimpse of the tall batsman in the recent ODI series against England’s U-19 side in Nagpur when he racked up over 350 runs in four games He notched up two big hundreds — an unbeaten 138 followed by 160 to steer India colts to emphatic back-to-back wins The sequence of consistent performances in the series has now earned him a place in Punjab’s squad for the premier 50-over domestic tournament — the Vijay Hazare Trophy Shubman like countless other budding cricketers got ample support from his cricket-crazy father Lakhwinder a landowner in Ferozpur He quickly sensed his younger son’s insatiable passion for the game “Bachpan se use cricket ka shauk tha Woh Sachin ko TV mein bat karte dekhkar bahut khush ho jata tha Usko aur bachchon ki tarah khilone pasand nahi the Woh sirf ek bat aur ball se khush rehta tha” Lakhwinder reminisces Eager that his younger son’s burgeoning cricketing aspirations take shape he got Shubman enrolled at the tender age of 8 at the Mohali Cricket Association a much sought-after cricketing nursery adjacent to the PCA stadium This was a decision that would change Shubman’s life forever Mohali a bustling suburb was a throwback to the quaint almost laid-back life witnessed hitherto in Ferozpur “Mere saath mere mummy-paapa aur didi bhi Mohali shift ho gaye” Shubman says It was at the Mohali Cricket Association where Shubman honed his skills and made heads turn with his impressive batsmanship At the age of 11 exactly three years after joining the Mohali academy Shubman was selected to play for Punjab’s U-16 district-level two-day games He finished as the highest run-scorer that year with 330 runs from five games But he would not be selected the following year as the selectors felt he was too young to feature at the U-16 level The next year he progressed to playing U-14 cricket and then in 2013 would represent Punjab in the prestigious Vijay Merchant U-16 tournament That was when Shubman showcased his full potential He would accrue over 1000 runs from just seven games and also score a double hundred “That was a very satisfying tournament for me I was just 14 and playing with guys who were 2-3 years older to me Despite that I had managed to score over 1000 runs” he gushes The mountain of runs in junior cricket helped him earn a stint at the NCA This would help him in his ascent even more as he got tips from the likes of WV Raman and Amol Muzumdar The Dravid factor The constant batting appraisals at the NCA from the likes of Raman and Mazumdar notwithstanding Shubman would perhaps get the biggest attestation about his batting from his U-19 coach Rahul Dravid It was under him that Shubman would find his verve and regain his insatiable appetite to score big hundreds After scoring four fifties in five games at the junior Asia Cup Shubman would get dismissed for two below par scores in the opening two games of the U-19 ODI series against England Shubman looked in decent touch but somehow that big three-figure score eluded him On the eve of the third game Dravid walked up to one of his brightest wards put an arm around his shoulders and said: “Whenever you get a start make sure you make it count Whenever you go out to play make sure you come back without any regret You will be opening the innings for tomorrow’s game” These were the words from the coach If anything Shubman was only delighted to be back as an opener a role he has donned with flair since his youth cricket days He would repay Dravid’s faith by knocking two consecutive centuries in the following ODIs further illustrating his rising graph “I’m a naturally a very aggressive batsman and like to dominate the bowling Rahul sir’s words that day helped me immensely He is not the kind of person who would tinker with your technique too much Instead he helps me mentally” Shubman addsThe opener is highly impressed by Dravid and says the former India skipper exudes a cool demeanour off the field “Yes he is stern on match days and during practice sessions But during our off days he is really cool He would come to our rooms and would try his hand at Playstation” he explains Despite the impressive start Shubman is not looking too far ahead At the moment he only wants to take his rich vein of form into the upcoming Vijay Hazare Trophy He is also a tad excited at the prospect of sharing the dressing room with veterans like Harbhajan Singh and Yuvraj Singh That apart he has set a target for himself “I want to play Ranji cricket for Punjab this year That’s my aim Let’s see how it goes” he signs off Vijay Hazare Grouping Group A: Assam Baroda Haryana Odisha Punjab Railways Vidarbha; Group B: Delhi Himachal Pradesh
