International players working in the fields to run the household expenses, have won more than 20 medals

Sports Desk : International level Karate player Hardeep Kaur is working in the paddy fields for her survival. His income is only 300 rupees per day. Hardeep, 23, a resident of Gurnekalan village in Punjab's Mansa district, has won more than 20 medals in national and international championships.

During a conversation with a media house, he said that he had never imagined that he would one day be forced to work as a farm laborer. Hardeep said, we belong to a poor Dalit family. We do not have land and have to work as labourers. I earn between Rs.300 to Rs.350 by working in paddy fields. I have to work in the fields to support my family. 

Hardeep Kaur's father Naib Singh (55) and mother Sukhwinder Kaur (45) also work in the paddy field. Hardeep Kaur is currently pursuing Post Graduate Diploma in Physical Education from Patiala. She said, “I am pursuing DPED in Patiala and do household work to support my studies and parents and now work as labor in paddy fields. 

Hardeep recalled the days when he won a gold medal in Malaysia in 2018 and was announced a government job. He said, Punjab Sports Minister Rana Gurmeet Sodhi met him and announced a government job. Three years have passed and the promise remains unfulfilled. 

The budding athlete has also gone to Chandigarh 4 times in connection with the job but to no avail. Hardeep Kaur said, he called me to his office in Chandigarh and promised me a government job. I was also asked to submit an application but after that I was never called by any government office. He said, a champion karate player who brought laurels to the country at the international level, now he is finding it difficult to survive.

This England fast bowler said - remove the ICC 'soft signal' rule

Birmingham: Veteran England pacer Stuart Broad wants the ICC to do away with the 'soft signal' rule as it does not live up to expectations and leaves match officials in a dire situation. Broad said this after the controversial decision involving New Zealand batsman Devon Conway in the second Test. Broad believed Conway was caught by Jacques Crowley at slip for 22. The on-field umpire left the decision to TV umpire Michael Gough who softly signaled not out.

Conway took full advantage of the opportunity and scored 80 runs to put New Zealand in a strong position. Broad said before the third day's play that you can understand from our reaction on the field that we thought he was out. Jacques felt the ball had landed in his hand and saw Joe Root at first slip and James Brassie behind the wicket who were a yard away from it. He knew that the ball was in his hand.

But it is not the fault of the umpires who are 40 yards away, he said. This rule has made their position difficult. Broad appealed to the ICC to look into this and take necessary measures. If you look at the positive and negative aspects of this rule, the negative is more. I think this is a bad rule and ICC should remove it without waiting for the next meeting.
