She played a remarkable game in the final and won with ease in the 50 kg category. Vinesh Phogat hails from Haryana.

In men’s freestyle wrestling Sumit Malik had to taste defeat. He was not able to resist the opponent’s moves thus lost by technical superiority. Sakshi Malik was not challenged enough by the opponent. She had an easy win against Thailand’s Salinee Srisombat and Ayaulym Kassymova in the semi-final. She was in the lead with 7-6 but became defensive in the last 10 seconds. Kyrgyz took the advantage and pushed Sakshi out of the match which gave her winning points in the semifinal.

The reason behind AB De Villiers Retirement

AB De Villiers Retirement from the international cricket as a shock to the cricketing fraternity. He decided to hang up after playing 114 Tests, 228 One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and 78 Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) for South Africa. The former South Africa skipper recently highlighted the reason behind AB De Villers sudden retirement. “It’s been unbearable the pressure you have to face, performing day in and day out”.

AB De Villiers, who averaged a little over 50 in the Test Cricket, also said that the expectations from the fans were massive and he did not like getting so much attention. “The expectations that you put on yourself, from fans, from the country, from coaches,” he said.

AB De Villiers played his last Test against Australia in April this year. He spent the final years of his career in and out of the game due to injuries and increasing need for personal and family time. However, he said that he is going to miss all the activities related to cricket but has no regrets about quitting the game.

“It’s something that’s on your mind all the time as a cricketer. And it’s definitely something that I’m not going to miss. I’m very happy to have stepped away. Absolutely no regrets,” – De Villiers.

De Villiers made his debut for South Africa in 2004. Since then, he had notched up 8765 runs in Tests, 9577 in ODIs and 1672 in T20Is. He holds an average over 50 in Tests and ODIs with an unbeaten 278 being his highest score.
