Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Reuters | Tokyo | Published: December 21 2016 6:04 pm Tokyo Gov Yuriko Koike arrives at the Four-Party Working Group meeting in Tokyo (Source: AP) Top News Tokyo 2020 organisers unveiled on Wednesday a budget of $168 billion for hosting the next Summer Games and vowed to seek further savings in co-operation with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) which has been calling for them to cut costs At an open meeting of a four-party working group that includes the IOC organisers said they estimated overall costs of 16 to 18 trillion yen ($15-$168 billion) the first official figures they have released since winning hosting rights At a previous meeting about three weeks ago organisers had said costs could run to as much as 2 trillion yen a level that IOC Vice President John Coates had deemed too high “We are pleased with the progress we are continuing to make” Coates said via video conference on Wednesday He noted the $47 billion portion for the organising committee’s budget would all be paid for through sponsorship IOC contributions and other private funds at zero cost to the public meaning they were really looking at a budget of $121 billion “The four-party political working group will continue to operate and play an important role going forward in the budget process” Coates said Tokyo won hosting rights largely on its reputation for efficiency but organisers have been embarrassed as budget projections were seen soaring far beyond the 734 billion yen that was estimated during the bid process A Tokyo city government panel commissioned by Governor Yuriko Koike warned in September that expenses could balloon to as much 3 trillion yen The IOC is worried such lofty figures could scare off future bidders after cities like Rome and Boston dropped out of the 2024 race “I appreciate we have reached a very significant milestone” Koike said “We are still keen to see further savings” The Tokyo panel had recommended using existing facilities for three venues instead of building new ones in line with the IOC’s “Agenda 2020” initiative which calls for utilising more existing infrastructure to ease the burden of hosting Koike ultimately abandoned plans to use existing venues for the rowing/canoeing swimming and volleyball but cost-cutting steps such as reducing the number of seats at the swimming arena will save around $400 million Organisers noted a rise in construction costs which have jumped due to rebuilding from Japan’s earthquake and tsunami five years ago They also said the projected cost of temporary facilities had more than doubled as the bid file had not accounted for items like design costs surrounding greenery and temporary toilets In addition they have now set a budget of $1-$28 billion for contingencies and a $38 billion service budget for transport security and other costs that had not been included in their bid Coates does not think such a large amount for contingencies will be required and that the service budget could provide additional cuts “The feeling we have is there are savings to be found there” he said For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More

Kolkata the perfect platform to chase down the 171-run target (Photo: BCCI) Top News The Sunil surprise Chris Lynn had been the surprise pick to open the innings for Kolkata in their IPL 10 opener The Aussie steamrolled Gujarat Lions with a 41-ball 93 not out Lynn’s shoulder injury in the last game however had left the position vacant for Robin Uthappa to return to his customary slot Chasing 171 for victory against Punjab at Eden Gardens on Thursday Gautam Gambhir came out with Sunil Narine instead Not that opening is new to Narine He did the job for Melbourne Renegades against Melbourne Stars and scored a 13-ball 21 in the last edition of the Big Bash League But given that Punjab played with four fast bowlers on an Eden pitch that offered extra pace Narine’s promotion redefined bravery; especially in front of 55000 fans The move turned out to be a masterstroke The brief was clear – see and swing Well the pinch-hitter swung and missed on a few occasions but he was completely unfazed When the ball was in the hitting range he just went full tilt making 37 off 18 balls with four fours and three sixes He added 76 runs with his skipper for the first wicket in just 54 overs and the game had been done and dusted From Kolkata’s perspective it was important to neutralise Sandeep Sharma in his opening spell Narine hit him for a six and two fours in his second over Glenn Maxwell tried his off-spin against the left-hander and was smashed for back-to-back boundaries Varun Aaron was sent five rows back over long-on for consecutive sixes and a four to the backward square leg fence Punjab clearly didn’t expect this They looked rattled and gave in An in-form Gambhir didn’t let the momentum slip after Narine’s departure In fact he ensured a cakewalk with a 49-ball 72 not out – his 33rd half-century in the IPL joint highest with David Warner Gambhir batted with grace but Narine ran away with the Man-of-the-Match award for his all-round display He had been miserly with his bowling finishing with one for 19 in four overs Umesh returns in style It happened very fast Umesh Yadav bowled a back-of-length delivery Maxwell made room and tried to cut it past backward point He had a faint tickle that the umpire seemingly didn’t hear But Maxwell started to walk Judging by the on-field acrimony during the India-Australia Test series it bordered on the unthinkable But the IPL is known for building bridges and the players indeed have moved on Umesh had missed Kolkata Knight Riders’ first two matches recuperating from right hip soreness His expensive first over at Eden Gardens had a bit to do with the rustiness and also his apparent discomfort at operating with a brand new ball Umesh likes the ball to be a little older So when Gambhir brought him back after the Powerplay he had better rhythm His final over proved to be the turning point of the match Punjab were 145 for four after 17 overs nicely set up for a 180-plus total David Miller started off with a six over deep-square followed by a four off an attempted yorker that was a little too full Pressure on the fast bowler and he responded brilliantly A low and quick full toss accounted for Miller with Manish Pandey taking a very good catch at deep mid-wicket Wriddhiman Saha in delightful touch against spin was beaten for pace and couldn’t clear Chris Woakes at mid-off despite offering the full face of the bat Mohit Sharma averted the hat-trick with a single but Axar Patel was out next ball deceived by a slower one and lobbing a simple catch to Narine at cover Umesh finished with four for 33 and Punjab’s 170 for nine was about 20 runs below par on this deck Fire-and-falter batting An Eden Gardens press box air conditioner caught fire before the start of the match causing a mini panic among the hacks But it was minor enough to be dealt with a common fire extinguisher On the field Punjab started with fire taking eight runs off Trent Boult’s first over Manan Vohra was turning on the screws revelling in his good fortune; Narine dropping a sitter at third man He had raced to 28 off 17 balls when Piyush Chawla in for Kuldeep Yadav was introduced into the attack The leg-spinner started with a googly and Vohra played a poor shot well away from his body to be castled The fire-and-falter sequence was repeated three more times during Punjab’s innings They missed a trick by not sending Saha at No 3 Marcus Stoinis came instead — three different one-drop batsmen in three matches — and struggled against spin Hashim Amla was going a little too slow for a T20 opener but Maxwell attacked Chawla taking a six and a couple of fours off his third over The Punjab captain flattered to deceive getting out at the wrong time Saha too took Chawla to the cleaners The six over the straight boundary was top-class and another maximum over deep extra cover even better He had the opportunity to take the game away from Kolkata on his ‘home’ patch as also Miller But they failed to carry on allowing their opponents to bounce back Kolkata’s catching was almost amateurish their ground fielding shabby and they also conceded 16 extras (13 wides) Still the hosts managed to keep things under control because the Punjab batting lacked killer instinct For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: PTI | New Delhi | Published: November 9 2016 10:29 pm AIFF

eased through to win the seventh of eight heats in 1007 seconds (Source: Reuters) Top News Usain Bolt finally got his party started at the Olympics on Saturday He put his finger to his lips to ask for quiet at the starting block rubbed his closely shaved head crouched down for the start then grinded through an opening round in the 100 that was routine as making the bed “It’s always to win” he said “That’s what I’m here for” He did just that in a first-round heat that was typically entertaining given the low-pressure semi-sprint that it was The two-time defending gold medalist got his customary slow start and lumbered out of the blocks seventh out of eight in his heat He trailed heading into the final 25 meters then glanced to his left and measured up Andrew Fisher a Jamaican who competes for Bahrain and was a body length ahead of him three lanes over Not a problem Bolt put it into third gear he’s got more for later and cruised past Fisher to win the heat in 1007 seconds Fisher also made it through to the semifinals and was anything but upset “You know that when you’re in line with him you’re in front of others” Fisher said Typical of an opening day in the 100 there were no real surprises Justin Gatlin considered the biggest threat to derail Bolt’s quest for nine total Olympic golds won his heat easily and finished with the day’s best time 1001 seconds “Went out there and executed my race in the first round” the American sprinter said “Cruised to the finish line” Bolt’s Jamaican buddy Yohan Blake made it through easily as did Americans Marvin Bracy and Trayvon Bromell and Frenchman Christophe Lemaitre “There’s going to be some stacked semifinals but it’s good” Bolt said of the three races that precede Sunday night’s main event “It gets you running and gets you up to speed to go out and run the final” “Bolt is a 1-2 favorite to take his unprecedented third straight Olympic title in the 100 His chances of doing that would seem to have as much to do with his own health as they do with Gatlin or anyone else lining up against him Bolt pulled out of his national championships last month with a sore hamstring Though earlier in the week he conceded he wished he’d had more real races under his belt this year on Saturday he said he’s in good form “I felt OK It wasn’t the best start Felt kind of sluggish It’s the fact that it’s the morning” said Bolt who was called to the line at 12:42 pm “I’m not used to running this early at any championship” He saves his best for prime time and the rest of the field left the stadium with a bit more than 24 hours to ponder what has not been possible: Beating Bolt at the Olympics “Once he’s in a tight position he might tense up” said the veteran sprinter Churandy Martina “But you never know because he always shows
