Winning gold medal in Tokyo Paralympics will be special: Krishna Nagar

New Delhi: Top para badminton player Krishna Nagar is proud to have qualified for the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics and wants to make it memorable by winning a gold medal at the Games to be held from August 24 to September 5. Apart from Nagar (SH6), Pramod Bhagat (SL3) and Tarun Dhillon (SL4) have received official invitations from the World Badminton Federation (BWF) to participate in the Tokyo 2020 Para Games.

SL3 refers to general weakness of the lower limbs, while SL4 refers to severe lower limb weakness. Sh6 is used to refer to short stature. According to the Paralympic Committee of India, Nagar said, "It is a proud moment for me that I will be a part of Paralympic Games when Para Badminton will debut in it." I will try to make it memorable by winning the gold medal. My only aim is to get the first position. All three players made it to the Tokyo Olympics based on their current BWF world rankings. 

Nagar said, 'The Kovid-19 epidemic is increasing anxiety and crisis in the world, so I hope that medals in Tokyo 2020 will bring some happiness to our countrymen. It will also act as an inspiration for future para players. Nagar, 21, from Rajasthan had won two gold medals at the Para Badminton International tournament in Dubai in April.

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.
