the former using his superior smarts He admitted he was never impressed by Goldberg and believes he only has to outsmart and outlast him to retain his title He feigned addressing Jericho next but simply dropped the microphone and walked off as chants of “you suck” and “Jericho” broke out Meanwhile because last week’s Handicap match did wonders for Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson’s young reign as tag team champions this week featured a rematch between them and Roman Reigns Consider the favor returned Reigns not only refused Raw General Manager Mick Foley’s suggestion to find a partner to face the good brothers He also gave up on any thoughts of wrestling them at all when Gallows & Anderson ganged up on him with a chair Reigns quickly thwarted them grabbed hold of the chair and swung away at the champs leaving them down and willingly eating a DQ of his own in the process When the good brothers continued to attack Reigns sealed their doom with a Superman Punch to Gallows and a monumental Spear that took an airborne Anderson out of the sky However the highlight of the evening was the battle of the heavyweights where the Big Shw clashed with Braun Strowman Can Big Show stop Braun Strowman was the question on everyone’s lips No he cannot but he gave The Monster Among Men a hell of a fight in a clash of titans that required a reinforced ring and earned a “this is awesome”

breaking out the science and speed including a side headlock and a kip-up () and transferring to pure power when warranted While Show was able to kick out of one Running Powerslam the second proved too much for him and Strowman claimed a hard-fought win Roman Reigns didn’t even wait two seconds to come after his WWE Fastlane opponent and even though The Big Dog knocked Braun off his feet with

likely that he may be replaced with party state general secretary Dilip Ghosh While the top leadership was not forthcoming on the issue a senior leader of the party’s Mahila Morcha on conditions of anonymity said “Dilip Ghosh an RSS pracharak who had joined the BJP about a year ago is likely to be the new state BJP president while Sinha would be made the party observer for Tripura” The leader claimed that a decision to this effect has been taken after several rounds of meetings of the state leaders with party national general secretary and party co-observer Kailash Vijayvargiya and later with the national president Amit Shah and Prime Minister Narendra Modi Both Ghosh and Sinha were summoned to Delhi Tuesday for a meeting with Shah Contacted Ghosh who was on his way to meet Vijayvargiya told The Indian Express that “I have heard that I will be the next BJP president of West Bengal but nothing is official at the moment” Vijayvargiya however refused to comment on the issue “We had been discussing about preparations of the November 30 Uthan Divas” he said “Sinha’s leadership qualities had been under question for a long time now and after losses in all the recent polls here in Bengal a big section of the party is demanding a leadership change” a senior BJP state leader said He claimed that the party will bring about organisational changes where senior leaders who had defected to BJP from other parties will be accommodated The leader claimed that a formal announcement about the changes will be made in the days to come In 2012 Sinha was re-elected as president of the state unit for three years and it was under his leadership that the party contested last year’s Lok Sabha polls in which party won two seats also went on to open its account in the Assembly when its candidate Shamik Bhattacharya won from Basirhat (South) seat in the North-24 Parganas in the bypolls However with the party failing to leave any impact in the panchayat and the civic body elections a section of the BJP voiced their dissatisfaction against Sinha and had threatened to go on a hunger strike on November 27 if he was not removed by then They have now withdrawn their programme “Since Sinha is likely to removed we have decided to call off our agitation We welcome Dilip Ghosh as the new state president” said party leader Subrata Mukherjee For all the latest Kolkata News download Indian Express App More Related NewsIs this luck or a golden opportunity Consider this: You are returning home after a rigorous training session tired but fit enough to play matches having completely recovered from a persistent shoulder injury In the mix your phone rings and it’s the coach who has an important message to deliver The coach says "You have been given a direct entry to the World Championships" and out of nowhere you have been handed a chance to bring a medal for India Interestingly this is how India’s men’s singles shuttler Sameer Verma learned about his qualification in the World Badminton Championships in Glasgow File photo of Sameer Verma News18 “This wasn’t expected at all I was hoping for a call in the Championships but I wasn’t sure The exclusion of Chinese Taipei players (who want to contest at the World University Games in their hometown) from the tournament opened up a number of slots and luckily I made the draw” Sameer told Firstpost Sameer missed out on qualification in May where compatriot B Sai Praneeth and Kidambi Srikanth bagged gold and silver medal respectively to boost their rankings But now the 22-year-old is the part of a strong four-man men’s singles contingent alongside Ajay Jayaram Praneeth and Srikanth Meanwhile it would not be surprising to see Indians at the podium this year at the World Championships with the qualification of a record 21-member contingent Not only is this the country’s largest representation in the world event but also is among the few countries who has filled all four qualification spots in the men’s and women’s singles The Badminton World Federation (BWF) calendar year –which began in January –has so far witnessed the rise of Indian badminton and especially in the men’s singles department The likes of Sameer Verma Kidambi Praneeth have tasted success winning six titles this season Sameer bagged the first gold medal among the Indian men’s singles this year after winning his maiden Syed Modi International Grand Prix Gold event in January and followed it with a quarter-final finish at the India Superseries But he suffered a shoulder injury during one of his training sessions which forced him to withdraw from Indonesia and Australian Open Superseries events in June However at such a huge event Sameer wants to forget past mistakes and start afresh to make an impact "I just realised that to overcome persistent injuries I need to strike a balance between playing and practicing I played a lot of close matches and also attended strengthening drills in recent months which proved to be costly as my shoulder started to strain" Sameer reasons Sameer abronze medallist at World Junior Championships is also confident of a podium finish for Indians in Glasgow “All the shuttlers at the World Championships are on the same level including the Indians But I won’t rule out an all-Indian semi-final or final If luck stays with us we might see Indians bagging a medal or two” said Sameer India’s recent success in the men’s singles was arguably down to the on-court confident and attacking style of play However Sameer believes that the Indian players should also look for variations “We should not just bank on our strong attack but instead have a strategy in place to outnumber our opponents” he added The 22-year-old Dhar native from Madhya Pradesh has been drawn against veteran shuttler Pablo Abian of Spain and if he wins he will lock horns with another experienced shuttler in England’s Rajiv Ouseph Sameer believes that it will be a huge challenge to beat the Spaniard in the first place "It is a tough draw of course You can only expect tough draws when you have qualified for the World Championships Things are really challenging from the first round itself" said Sameer "This will be the first time for me at such a grand event and also a bit special since it’s the first time I’ll be playing in Glasgow Need to give 100% in Glasgow despite a tough draw and get settled down as quickly as possible Pablo is a shuttler who loves to outplay his opponent with tiring rallies" he added One of the reasons why these men have outshone higher-ranked shuttlers is because of a string of consistent performances following Mulyo Handoyo’s changes in the training patterns The Indonesian coach who played an instrumental role in the development of the legendary Taufik Hidayat has also helped Sameer work on his core strength and his fitness "Mulyo (Handoyo) sir is preparing us to be ready for long matches Before him we had three sessions but now we train more regularly I’ve been able to stretch the games but the only thing I need to work on is to finish the close matches" Video courtesy: Facebook/Sameer Verma It was evident how Sameer coped with the pressure of playing two matches –which went into the deciding game –in a day at the recently-concluded US Open "We are going through longer sessions now We start practicing in the morning and wrap things up at night It’s not easy to maintain that level of fitness for months and especially for me since I was already aiming to come back after my injury issues in May I participated at the US Open and since then I have been training rigorously" Sameer explained Ahead of the Championships Sameer said that he has worked hard on his overall game and that should help him against some of the big guns "I don’t look at an individual stroke or a shot but instead I concentrate on my overall game Also there should be a proper blend of attack and defence and with forecourt and backcourt coverage" said Sameer With high expectations from arguably the strongest Indian contingent ever this direct entry falls as a massive opportunity for Sameer who wasn’t even expecting to take the court in the Championships let alone winning a medal Looking at the high level of training all the shuttlers from every department have gone through the possibility of bringing home a medal stays alive The Chinese Taipei shuttlers might have done a favour to Sameer who is eager to achieve the unwritten objective in a sport where there are no favourites Written by Jagdeep Singh Deep |

with two holes to play on the Shore Course at Monterey Peninsula (Source: AP) Top News Jordan Spieth could barely stand up and worried his hat would fly off in the middle of his swing From 176 yards downhill to the par-3 11th green at Monterey Peninsula he ripped a 4-iron and hoped for the best When he saw it land about 6 feet from the flag he declared to anyone within earshot “That’s the best shot I’ve ever hit” India vs Bangladesh Live Score This was a snapshot of the nasty side of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am on Thursday with severe conditions that once led to the term “Crosby weather”

has the most shelter from the wind because of the inland holes cut through a forest Mark Hubbard had a 3-under 69 at Pebble Beach which is exposed along the coast Only three players reached the green on the par-4 ninth hole into the wind Hubbard finished his round there with a bogey and treated it like a par “It played more like a par 5 than any of the actual par 5s” he said Spieth even though he missed four putts inside 6 feet on the bumpy greens was at 3-under par with two holes to play on the Shore Course at Monterey Peninsula And as he walked in the final two holes in the rain tilting his umbrella to fight the wind and rain he was quite pleased “We thought it would be this way but just rain” Spieth said “We didn’t expect that” The “that” was what amounted to a four-club wind and the best example was the partner he has had the last three years Dustin Johnson the US Open champion and among the most powerful players in golf Johnson could barely hold up his umbrella in the wind when he stepped out from under it and smashed his drive on the 599-yard 12th hole From the first cut of rough he then hit a full 3-wood And for his third shot he had 4-iron into the green And he was still short Asked if that ever happened to him on a par 5 Johnson didn’t blink before saying “Never” On the next hole typically tame at 434 yards Johnson hit driver and had 190 yards left He hit a 3-iron he normally hits 7-iron from that distance to the back pin to about 5 feet and made it for birdie “Eagle” Johnson said when he walked off the green It was like that all over Hubbard started on the back nine at Pebble before the strongest of the wind and the rain arrived He made three short birdie putts made the turn and then holed a 15-foot eagle putt on the par-5 second hole to reach 5 under And then it was time to hang on “At that point I was glad I had a cushion” Hubbard said With 104 players on each course half of them amateurs footprints pile up on the soggy greens and every putt is bouncing any direction Hockey great Wayne Gretzky playing with Johnson missed badly from 8 feet right before Spieth’s 4-foot par putt took a bounce to the left and lipped out “If the best players in

He missed it But he did enough right including that 4-iron on 11th hole Best ever After play was suspended and he was out of the moment he backed off such a proclamation “Not the best I’ve ever hit in my life” he said “But that was up there In competition on a Thursday For sure I roasted a 4-iron My hat was flying off or felt like it was going to In the air you don’t know if it’s going to be 20
