Rohtak All India Day 2 Results - Aug 7, 2016

The 1st All India Basketball Tournament for Men, Rohtak tipped off yesterday at the Rajiv Gandhi Sports Complex in Sector 6. The tournament is being organised by the Basketball Club of Haryana (BCH) under the aegis of the Haryana State Basketball Association and the Basketball Federation of India.

In a decisive set of matches, Group B teams Indian Railway and Indian Army, and Group A's ONGC, Dehradun and Income Tax, Chennai are through to the semifinals, with perfect 2-0 records.

Even though all 4 semifinalists have been decided, tomorrow's final round of league matches will still be crucial in terms of decided the toppers of both groups and consequently the semifinal matchups for day after tomorrow.

Mr Pradeep Kumar, Additional Deputy Commissioner (Rohtak) was the first guest for the day. Later on Shri Ved Parkash Sheoran, Principal of Government College, Rohtak and Master Rampal Arya, Mahamantri of Arya Pratinidhi Sabha, Haryana were greeted warmly by participating teams. Finally Professor Pardeep Rana from Maharshi Dayanand University, Rohtak was present for the final match of the day.

Day 2 action began with Punjab taking on Indian Army. After a strongly contested first three quarters, Indian Army broke away in the last 10 minutes to go 2-0, while Punjab is now 0-2 and certain to not progress to the knockout stages, with one league match still remaining. Vishal of Indian Army was named man of the match.

Indian Army (Gopal Ram 21, Ramesh 18, Amandeep 9) bt Punjab (Mandeep Singh 18, Sahil 14, Rahul Mehla 12) 86-70 [21-24, 22-20, 26-13, 17-13]

Overcoming some loud home support to Haryana, ONGC Dehradun kept their composure and became the first team to progress to the semifinals from Group A. Haryana's international guard Vinay Kaushik fought valiantly, including an impossible three pointer at the halftime buzzer. But ONGC still held a 40-34 lead going into the second half. Current India international Vishesh Bhriguvanshi showed his class yet again with a mammoth 33 points. Former international Riyazuddin had a man of the match worthy 18 points, while another current international Yadwinder Singh was effective on both ends of the floor.

Haryana competed extremely hard yesterday against Income Tax, Chennai and today against ONGC, and can be considered unlucky to still remain winless. With back to back losses, Haryana is now out of contention of making the semifinals, but will be looking to end on a positive note against Indian Air Force tomorrow.

ONGC, Dehradun (Vishesh Bhriguvanshi 33, Riyazuddin 18, Yadwinder Singh 14) bt Haryana (Vinay 13, Pradeep 12, Deepak 12) 82-66 [25-17, 15-17, 28-18, 16-14]

Playing late in the evening, Income Tax Chennai won a very crucial Group A game against Indian Air Force to qualify to the semifinals. Coming into this match, Air Force was smarting from an opening loss against ONGC, while Income Tax had beaten home team Haryana.

This match was a fascinating contest between two very different teams. The Air Force came with a full contingent 12 players, a head coach and assistant coach, while Income Tax, Chennai is fielding just 7 players with no coaching staff.

But as it turned out this match wasn't about bench strength or off court strategists, as Income Tax prevailed 67-62. Air Force coach Jora Singh was heard early getting agitated at a few calls not going his team's way. The calm and collected Chennai side went about their business without a fuss, raking up a 17-10 lead at halftime. Air Force retaliated in the second quarter, and again in the fourth, mainly through Haryana guard Joginder and forward Ashutosh. But they were countered by current internationals Rikin Pethani and Akilan Pari. Centre Rikin proved especially unstoppable for the second straight match, scoring a high 27 points to prove himself an early tournament most valuable player (MVP) contender. In the end, despite a late rally by Air Force, Chennai prevailed 67-62.

Rightly so, Rikin Pethani was named player of the match.

With Chennai's win, they have joined ONGC (both 2-0) in the knockout stage, while Indian Air Force and Haryana (both 0-2) have been knocked out.

Income Tax, Chennai (Joginder Singh 16, Ashutosh Rai 15) bt Indian Air Force (Rikin Pethani 27, Akilan Pari 13) 67-62 [17-10, 10-14, 24-16, 16-22]

I was in the check-in line at the New Delhi airport one afternoon when I heard some commotion from the far end. From the distance, I couldn't identify the cause of the hysteria that followed: men and women screaming in jubilation, forgetting their usual travel routine to chase down a celebrity. It didn't take long for the message to reach the lady behind my check-in counter: Virat Kohli, the Indian cricket captain and nationwide heartthrob, had graced the airport with his presence. He to...   [read more]

What is interesting was that the second game was between Lebron James and his champion Cleveland Cavaliers and the powerful Los Angeles Clippers, packed with stars lik...   [read more]
