New Delhi: Nikhat Zareen was all-set to take on Vanduatilal in the 51-kg trial for the World Championships on Tuesday when the 23-year-old was told by the chairman of the selectors Rajesh Bhandari that her bout wouldn’t take place just to ensure that she is protected for the future and not exposed at a young age in the World Championships.The move has come as a rude shock for both the boxer and her father who had travelled from Hyderabad to the national capital for the trials for the championship to be held in Russia in October.In a letter to the officials of the Boxing Federation of India, accessed by IANS, the boxer requested for an explanation on why she had been stopped from competing even though she had seen her name on the list when the schedule was first released.“As per our discussion yesterday and your assurance that my bout for the 51-kg for the World Championships trials will surely happen today, I’m surprised to see that the schedule list which was circulated this (Wednesday) morning, my name and weight category doesn’t feature.“This is in light of the fact that yesterday my name and weight category was there in the schedule and was supposed to be the first bout. Still at the last moment we were told by all of you officials that my fight with Vanduatilal of All India Police will not take place.”“I request an urgent explanation as to what is happening and what is the final decision in this regard,” she said.In an email to president Ajay Singh, Nikhat Zareen wrote: “I’m writing this email out of sheer frustration and feeling of helplessness. To my utter surprise and disappointment, I was today informed just before the bouts were supposed to start by the Chairman Selection Committee, Rajesh Bhandari, that my bout will not happen today and there are some internal discussions happening to ensure I’m protected for future and avoid getting exposed at a young age in World Championships.“I’m really surprised by this action as I have already participated in World Championships in 2016 and if I was fine then, so in 2019, I surely cannot be young and this cannot be the reason.“I, as a citizen of India and a boxer under BFI, only request that a fair trial should happen for all boxers under your leadership. If there is a rule for all of us, it needs to be consistent for all of us irrespective of whatever stature a particular boxer is. I look forward to your immediate intervention and restoring the faith of every boxer in India.”She represented India at the World Championships at Kazakhstan in 2016 and also won a Bronze in the recently concluded Asian Championship.Speaking to IANS, her father said that the whole thing came as a rude shock because both Nikhat and her opponent were ready to head into the ring when it was announced that the bout wouldn’t take place.“The name was there on 6th (Tuesday), but when they got ready to enter the ring, the judges were also there and after that they were told there will be no trial in her category only.“Then they said that we will discuss the matter and then will let us know if the fight happens today. But again, the name wasn’t there on the list. They are saying it is the order of the federation. The president has always been very supportive and this has been surprising. We wanted a fair trial and nothing more. We are still waiting for a clarity in the matter,” he rued.“Here we are aiming for the Olympics and see where we are stuck. Hoping that even if not today, they hold the trials tomorrow. She has been consistent and has performed against some of the best boxers and age cannot be an issue.” Nikhat was the Junior World Champion in 2011 and Youth World Silver Medalist in 2013.

Jordan Taylor carried the No. 10 Badgers Thursday night. His 39 points were three shy of the program record of 42, held by Michael Finley (1994) and Ken Barnes (1965). Taylor shot 11-for-19 from the floor, 7-for-8 from three-point range and 10-for-10 from the foul line.[/media-credit]BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Jordan Taylor saw everything slipping away. Three of his Wisconsin teammates were on the bench with three fouls, and Indiana was charging back from an eight-point deficit.So he took over.Taylor scored a career-high 39 points and almost single-handedly stopped Indiana’s second-half charge, leading No. 10 Wisconsin to a 77-67 victory on Thursday night.The junior guard accounted for all the Badgers’ points in a decisive 14-4 run that turned a 46-45 lead into a 60-49 advantage midway through the second half.“When the game started getting close, he just wasn’t going to let us lose or get behind,” Keaton Nankivil said.Not a chance.Taylor, who scored 30 earlier this season against Michigan State and keyed Wisconsin’s rally against then-undefeated Ohio State, got the best of Indiana, too.He went 11 for 19 from the field, including a 7-for-8 night from 3-point range, and made all 10 of his free-throw attempts. He fell one point shy of the Assembly Hall record for an opposing player, set by Michigan State’s Terry Furlow in 1976 and matched when the Spartans’ Shawn Respert scored 40 in 1995.Yet, Taylor still thought he could improve.“I made some mistakes out there, too,” he said, pointing to his lone turnover in 39 minutes.The Badgers (23-6, 13-4 Big Ten) now have won eight straight against Indiana, their longest winning streak in the series since an 11-game run from 1912-19. They will carry a four-game winning streak into Sunday’s rematch at No. 1 Ohio State.Indiana, meanwhile, is reeling. Verdell Jones scored 18 points and Jordan Hulls had 15, but the Hoosiers have lost seven straight overall, four in a row at home, and dropped a senior night game for the second time in four years.The difference Thursday was one player.“Jordan Taylor flat out had a great performance,” Indiana coach Tom Crean said. “He made some incredibly challenging shots. He took advantage of us when we missed some assignments, and the biggest thing about a kid like that is he rises up.”Indiana just couldn’t match up with Taylor’s skills.“Jordan just did some things that very few people, I think, can do against any team at any time,” Badgers coach Bo Ryan said. “He created openings, he was ready to pass it but he was also open and he’s got to shoot it when he’s open. He got to the line, attacked, drew the fouls, did everything a point guard should do.”The Badgers looked as if they had seized control when they extended a 32-28 halftime lead to 41-33 on Nankivil’s three-point play with 16:45 to go.But Indiana charged back after Jon Leuer drew his third foul at the 16:15 mark. Thirteen seconds after that, Josh Gasser picked up his third foul and Hulls made a 3-pointer. And when Nankivil was called for his third foul with 14:59 to go and Derek Elston made two free throws, Indiana had closed to 43-38.Will Sheehey made the first of two free throws to get Indiana within one, but he missed the second and Taylor closed the door.“The game was right there for us, right there for us again,” Crean said. “We didn’t answer the bell.”Taylor hit a short runner, drew a foul and made the free throw. He followed that with another 3. Then he hit two free throws and back-to-back 3s, helping Wisconsin build an 11-point margin.Indiana trimmed the lead to six in the closing minutes, but never recovered.“I just kept trying to play,” Taylor said. “The biggest focus is getting a win always. It just opened up, shots were going down and in the flow of the game that’s how things worked out.”Nankivil had 16 points and Leuer finished with 10 after scoring only two points in the first half.
