    'Hope to get in top 10 of Olympic qualification'- Shuttler Lakshya Sen

    Despite his Olympic qualification in uncertain waters, Lakshya Sen is working on his attacking game and variations during the off-season.

    Currently ranked 17th in the Olympic Games qualification, Lakshya needs to be in the top 16 by the end of April to make it to the 2024 Paris Olympics. "

    To secure the spot I still have to work a little harder in terms of getting good results, and once that is done, the qualification won't be an issue. For me, right now the main concern is to go deep into the tournament in the next few months until April and then ranking will follow. I would like to improve my ranking and come in the top 10 by the end of qualification," Lakshya Sen told PTI during an interview.

    Don't expect enormous achievement in Asian Cup: Igor Stimac

    Ahead of India's AFC Asian Cup campaign in Qatar starting next week, Igor Stimac, the head coach of the Indian men's team, said nobody should expect an 'enormous achievement' from the Blue Tigers.

    “Realistically, we can hold on to something in Asian Cup. But to expect enormous achievement is not reality," Stimac told Rev Sportz.

    For the Croatian coach of the Indian team, the main objective is to gain experience from the continental showpiece and utilise the gains for India's FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Afghanistan. India will play an away game against the sturdy Afghans on March 21.

    Formula E alleges breach of contract by govt, cancels Hyderabad E-Prix

    Formula E has announced the cancellation of the Hyderabad E-Prix alleging a contract breach by the new Telangana government on Saturday.

    Formula E has alleged a breach of contract by the Municipal Administration and Urban Development Department (MAUD) that falls under the control of the Telangana government.

    In a statement, Formula E said, " The cancellation comes following a decision by the Municipal Administration and Urban Development Department (MAUD), under the control of the Government of Telangana, not to fulfill the Host City Agreement signed on 30 October 2023."

    The inaugural electric race in the country was held in February last year with Telangana's then IT Minister KT Rama Rao playing a huge role in bringing the race to Hyderabad.

    However, KTR's BRS party lost the state election to Congress in December and the new government has not shown the same willingness to host the race.
