Tribute to Muhammad Ali End of an era
Gulf Times-7th June 2016-L.E

Dear Sir, With the death of Muhammad Ali (“Ali: ‘Greatest’ boxer, a showman and an ambassador” Gulf Times, June 5), an era has come to an end in the world of boxing. His death is a big loss to the sports world. We have lost a legend, a hero and a great human being. He had the privilege to be the heavyweight boxing champion for three times.

Ali will be remembered as one of the world’s best known sportsmen of all times. The world will also remember him as one of the most charismatic and controversial sports figures of the 20th century.

He fiercely opposed the Vietnam war. With his high-profile name, he gave wholehearted support to civil rights groups, which endeared him to the millions of people across the world. He was tremendous not just as an iconic boxer but a great human being who was always generous with his money.

With steady successes of boxing victories, he further shot to fame by winning the light-heavyweight gold at the 1960 Rome Olympics, then turned professional boxer and delighted his audiences with showboating, shuffling and lightning reflexes. Though he has left us for the eternal world, his great legacy and spirit will continue to live in the hearts of his millions of his fans worldwide.

DEATH OF A BATSMAN
Ramesh G Jethwani, Bangalore--The Statesman- 1st dec 2014-LE

SIR, The death of the Australian batsman, Phil Hughes, as a result of a serious head injury sustained during a Sheffield Shield match is one of the saddest chapters in the history of cricket. He was a promising batsman and was destined for greatness at a young age. His passing is cricket's worst tragedy since the death of the former Indian opener, Raman Lamba, in February 1998 after a ball hit him on the temple while fielding in a Bangladesh league cricket match.

The death of Hughes is a stark reminder of the inherent dangers of the game. The life of a batsman is at considerable risk when he faces a fast bowler. Cricket administrators ought now to upgrade the safety standards of the protective helmet and other gear. For that matter, the game of cricket has never been safe. Certain features, such as the short-pitched ball, call for reflection. A safety audit is imperative.

Yours, etc.,

The cricket maestro
Arab News-19 March 2012-LE

A rare milestone in the cricketing history was witnessed last Friday when Indian cricketing maestro Sachin Tendulkar made his 100th international century in Dhaka. Sachin has not only made his nation proud but has told pioneering cricketing nations — England and Australia — that in this part of the world we have gone one step ahead of them as far as cricket is concerned. Many a time, Pakistani, Sri Lankan and Indian teams have given tough time to England and Australia who were the pioneers of this game. Sachin’s cricket carrier spanning over more than two decades has been truly a remarkable one in which he has made India proud on a number of occasions. Sachin is not only gifted with an amazing talent as a batsman and a good fielder, but is also a good human being who has never been involved in any sort of controversy. As Sachin is around 40 he may have to retire sooner or later but we all hope and pray that even after his retirement he will continue to serve the Indian cricket by guiding young cricketers with his cricketing talent.
