in the sport in Canada Top News Kim Gaucher has seen the growth of women’s basketball in Canada over her 16 years with the program She started with the junior national team as a 16-year old and there wasn’t much interest in the sport in Canada “Hockey and footballwere the top and only sports it seemed that people would talk about” Gaucher said laughing “When I first started playing we would have to fly to South America and meet with our teammates there and try and qualify for events That was our training time” Now 16 years later women’s basketball in Canada is on the rise _ led by Gaucher and a talented young group of players That growth started when the team qualified for the London Games five years ago on Canada Day They earned the final spot into the Olympics and put on a great showing before losing to the US in the quarterfinals It was the country’s first Olympic berth in 12 years and best showing since they finished fourth in 1984 The performance helped inspire some of the team’s young players “I was a young kid watching our vets play in London and to be playing with them now is kind of crazy” said guard Kia Nurse who is a junior at UConn and a big part of the future of Canada’s team “To hear the stories of where they were to where we are now is incredible” Those Olympics were a springboard for the success the team has had the last four years The Canadians finished fifth in the world championship in 2014 and then _ for the first time in 20 years _ hosted the FIBA America qualifiers which they won That came a few weeks after the team won the Pan-Am Games in Toronto knocking off the Americans in the gold medal contest That US team wasn’t the Americans national team but it was lead Breanna Stewart “It’s truly incredible” said Nurse who had 33 points in the gold medal game victory over the US “Honestly it’s so crazy for us No one really knew about women’s basketball in Canada until the Pan-Am games Now it’s like everyone talks about us” Canada basketball President and CEO Michele O’Keefe said hosting was a key part of the strategy to help build the program “Having the Pan-Am Games and three weeks later the FIBA America championships was huge for us” she said “It bodes well Not only do we get a home-court advantage but the young kids get to see the athletes and the coaches get to see the strategy and level of competition It gives everyone the chance to see what international basketball looks like” O’Keefe said a big part of Canada’s long term strategy over the past decade has been to invest in and streamline all the country’s different age groups which has built a solid foundation for now and the future “The investment has been substantial” she said “Create an alignment right down our age group teams to our provincial teams Make it a true feeder system It’s been a huge difference We’ve been able to call a kid up from a junior team and they know how to play at this level” The dividends have already paid off as a record four Canadians were taken in the WNBA draft this past April including Olympian Nirra Fields Now the next step would be winning a medal If that were to happen the country would be truly abuzz In the past 80 years Canada only has two medals in team sports The men’s basketball team won a silver in 1936 and the women’s footballteam took the bronze in London Canada enters Rio fresh off a victory over 2012 silver medalist France in a pre-Olympic tournament last week Canada also played against Australia and the US in that exhibition series giving the team a look at three of the top teams in the world “I don’t think any of us would be shy to tell you that we set goals as a team and we want to try and come home with some hardware” Nurse said “For us we’re going to come out and peak at the right time”

with figures of 4/68 (Source: Reuters) Top News During the first Test of the India vs Australia series coach Anil Kumble acceded to a Kuldeep Yadav request and took the young chinaman bowler to meet Shane Warne who was one of the commentators for the Pune game “Warne mera idol hain (Warne is my idol)” a beaming Yadav gushed on Saturday after day one of the fourth and final Test In a story that has echoes of the mythological archer Eklavya Yadav in the past has hailed Warne as his guru without having met the great man He insists he has learnt the nuances of wrist-spin bowling by religiously watching the YouTube videos of the legendary Australia leg-spinner But any similarities with Eklavya end here Yadav won’t cut his thumb as offering he will apply his tricks on him Or his countrymen “So when we met thanks to Kumble sir he showed me how to bowl a flipper Aur aaj maine unhi-se seekh ke unhi ke khiladi ko out kar diya (And today having learnt the trick from an Aussie I dismissed an Aussie with it)” he quipped with a smile describing how he got first Test scalp David Warner Warner’s wicket which came soon after lunch as Australia were sprinting towards a massive first innings total triggered a collapse that resulted in the team losing nine wickets for 156 runs to be all out for 300 Yadav’s eventual figures of 4/68 in 23 overs meant that meant that on a day when the team lost Virat Kohli due to injury India discovered a new hero Kohli’s exclusion from the team was expected after the Indian captain had given enough hints on Friday that his injured shoulder hadn’t healed completely However with the team management having flown in Mumbai batsman Shreyas Iyer as cover it came as a surprise when it was Yadav a rookie bowler who replaced India’s best batsman in the team Just before lunch he was brought into attack and bowled some insipid stuff and it looked that India had made a blunder But he turned up a changed bowler post meal and the rest is why you are reading this report It’s a story of perseverance and redemption Yadav has been on the India’s senior team’s radar ever since he finished joint-second on the wicket-takers list at the 2014 U-19 World Cup in the UAE with 14 scalps He has been part of India’s limited-overs squad previously but never got to play Fellow bowlers from the junior World Cup South African paceman Kagiso Rabada and Bangladesh seamer Mustafizur Rahman had gone on to become regulars for their respective teams in all formats while Yadav appeared to have hit an invisible wall — not for want of wickets but perhaps a surfeit of spin-bowling options in India Then came the Duleep Trophy last year where he made the pink ball dance under lights and finished as the top wicket-taker in the event with 17 dismissals in five games While it didn’t quite earn him a national team call-up he was called up for the nets at the Green Park Stadium ahead of the India vs New Zealand Test — the first of the home season What was striking to see was the keen interest Kumble took in his bowling often pulling Yadav aside and giving him tips and feedback The Test squad call-up came against Bangladesh and he retained his place for the Australia series Though as the matches ticked by the possibility of a debut became slimmer and slimmer “When you perform season after season and you don’t get chances you need someone who can motivate you” said Yadav “My father and my childhood coach (Kapil Pandey) they motivated me as well as some senior players My personal coach always told me that I would get a lot of wickets when I play so he was a bit upset that I wasn’t being picked I assured him that I would be getting my chance for sure because I had confidence after I bowled in the nets Senior players like Virat bhai and coach Anil sir motivated me and told me that my chance would come” At last in a Team India huddle on a glorious Saturday morning he received the Test cap no 288 from L Sivaramakrishnan and a big hug from Kohli A dream that had taken root in the bylanes of Kanpur was realised The city has its imprint on Yadav It could be said that you can take a Kanpuria out Kanpur but not Kanpur out of a Kanpuria — and Kuldeep is nothing if not one to the core Sheer self-belief There is street-smartness about him as well as sheer self-belief You remember that rainy July 2013 day in a Civil Lines mall where Yadav met The Indian Express for his first interview with national media He was wearing a body-hugging tee that accentuated his chubbiness But he carried it with supreme nonchalance In a way Yadav reflects the 21st century small-town India that doesn’t give a fig and believes its time has come And it percolates down to his bowling In 2012 he was one of the many domestic players on the Mumbai Indians roster During one of the net sessions he got to bowl to Sachin Tendulkar A bundle of nerves right Wrong He bowled the great man through the gates with a wrong ‘un “First ball” he had told this paper before adding: “(Cheteshwar) Pujara fourth ball” On Saturday too Yadav didn’t bowl like a novice but a 100-Test veteran After the first two overs the line and length was impeccable He bravely flighted the ball made it dip and turn The flipper removed Warner the chinaman did Peter handscomb in Glenn Maxwell was foxed by the wrong ‘un while it was the dip that got Pat Cummins Matt Renshaw who scored a half century later said Australia had done their homework on everyone in the squad including Yadav yet out there when he faced the Indian spinner it was difficult to tell which deliverywould turn which way “I have confidence in my skills Even if I get hit I think about how I wanted to bowl whether I have been able to back my skill use the variations I wanted…Good that he (Renshaw) said this which means he is having difficulty” said Yadav and laughed an infectious laugh As he walked off the press-conference room it was difficult not to see one happy co-incidence: On the Test debut of a mofussil town it was a debutant from mofussil India who shone the brightest For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsFor a brief period on 2 July more people were tuned in to watch the Indian women’s team’s match against Pakistan than Virat Kohli and Co taking on West Indies in the fourth ODI It might have been short-lived as both matches overlapped for only around an hour or so but the fact that viewers were tuning in to watch the Indian women play against Pakistan was a telling factor that the women’s game had generated interest at least amongst the cricket romantic Perhaps it was spurred by nationalistic fervour and the fact that Team India were undefeated at the World Cup till that point The women’s game has evolved dramatically over the past few years Right until a couple of years ago the gap between the top teams —Australia England and New Zealand — and India was significant However that has narrowed considerably India’s Punam Raut in action against Reuters The emergence of prodigious talents such as batswoman Smriti Mandhana all-rounder Deepti Sharma and pace sensation Mansi Joshi along with the experience of Mithali Raj Jhulan Goswami and Harmanpreet Kaur have ensured India is catching up with rest of the world There was clear evidence that India have bridged the gap when they toppled England in their opening game However after winning four consecutive matches the team hit a roadblock against South Africa losing by 115 runs India now have the tough challenge of having to win at least one of the remaining matches and that too against world champions Australia and New Zealand the team ranked third in the world As evident by their opening match against England India are capable of beating both teams but statistically there were some areas that they need improve dramatically in if they are to compete with elite teams The most glaring issue is that the top order of India plays far too many dot balls India captain Raj alluded to the fact that apart from the opening game there hasn’t been a substantial opening stand But in reality the top five Indian batters have cumulatively faced close to 40 overs in four of the five matches and India have only crossed 250 on one instance India’s dot ball percentage is at 60% Comparatively Australia’s is at 48% England at 47% and New Zealand at 51% One of the prime culprit is opener Punam Raut The right-hander has only managed to score 110 off the 292 balls she has faced at the World Cup Deepti who has played the most number of balls amongst the Indian top-order batswomen has a dot-ball percentage of 59% Deepti has hit more flowing drives and punches off the back-foot than any other player in the tournament But she needs to learn to thread the tight off-side field employed against her or the art of dropping the ball at her feet and running quick singles Placement is something that comes naturally to a player and as her career progresses she will learn to do it instinctively But when it comes to playing with soft hands it is a skill that Deepti and other members of the Indian batting order need to learn quickly if India are to progress in the tournament Even the experienced Mithali and Harmanpreet have dot balls percentages of 56% and 59% respectively The only exception to this rule is stylish left-hander Mandhana who has scored from 54% of the balls she had faced Her dot-ball percentage in akin to the likes of Ellyse Perry Meg Lanning Suzie Bates and Heather Knight India’s worries are compounded further by the lack of boundaries compared to the likes of Australia New Zealand and England The Indian women have only managed to hit 106 boundaries so far in the tournament while England and Australia have racked up 163 and 129 respectively This statistic becomes graver when you take into consideration that India England and Australia have roughly faced the equal amount of balls in the tournament 1413 1380 1367 respectively Yet India trail the World No 1 and 2 teams in boundaries scored amount of sixes hit scoring balls and number of twos and threes Reducing the amount of dot balls they play rotating strike by running hard between the wickets and converting singles into twos is an aspect of the game that India are still lagging behind The power-hitting side of the game is still evolving and apart from Harmanpreet the others tend to struggle to muscle the ball a long way?
