World Baseball and Softball Authorities Combine

World Baseball Softball Confederation
World Baseball and Softball authorities Combine - Sports Jagat
World baseball and softball authorities announced on Sunday they would join as part of a campaign to get both sports back at the Olympic Games in 2020.

The newly created World Baseball Softball Confederation (WSBC) will lobby for the sports' inclusion at the International Olympic Committee's May session in St. Petersburg, with the decision to be taken in Buenos Aires in September.

Baseball and softball were dropped from the Olympics after the 2008 Beijing Games, and are competing against climbing, karate, roller sports, squash, wakeboarding, wrestling and wushu for what could be one spot in 2020.

"This is a remarkable day. We have brought a new level of worldwide unity and determination to our quest to return to the Games," said Riccardo Fraccari, president of International Baseball Federation and co-president of the WSBC.

Talking to reporters in Tokyo where the agreement was signed, Fraccari said that the 65 million people currently playing baseball and softball around the world now have a single federation to rally behind.

"We are on a great journey to return our global sport to the Olympic stage. We've been listening and learning from the Olympic family and the IOC to understand what it takes to be included as a sport at the Olympic Games.

"We have reached a milestone in our journey to put baseball and softball back in the Olympic Games, and today I am proud to declare that the full membership of the IBF voted to ratify the new Constitution of the World Baseball Softball Confederation," he added.

Under the agreement, Don Porter, president of International Softball Federation, becomes the WSBC's other co-president.

Fraccari also announced a new international baseball competition called "Premium 12" to be played among the top 12 teams in the world annually with Japan as the tournament's host.

Premium 12 will not supplant the World Baseball Classic, played every four years and considered international baseball's top competition.

Suresh Raina can ‘make it big’ in Test Cricket

West Indies cricket legend Brian Lara on Monday backed Indian all-rounder Suresh Raina to play Test cricket, and Brain Lara saying that Raina has it in him to 'make it big in that arena'.

Brain Lara wrote on the Indian cricketers' Twitter page, "I want to see you playing some more test cricket and I know you have what it takes to make it big in that arena…"

Raina said in his reply that he has been working very hard to force his way back into the national Test side.

He wrote, "yes I want to play test cricket so badly been working hard since I dropped from the team.. Hope fully I will make it soon.."

The Caribbean legend then replied saying that he will be having a chat with Raina when they meet next time.

Lara wrote, "when I see you we will have a chat could help with a few things bro want to see you at your best all forms of the game."

Lara added, "If we meet up we can work on a few things… Want you in South  Africa scoring TEST runs. It's not hard at all. Plenty of it is mental strength."

Raina lost his place in the Test team after a not-too-impressive show in the short two-Test series against New Zealand in September 2012 and was not considered for the four-game rubber subsequently against England.

The 27-year-old Uttar Pradesh batsman, who has figured in 17 Tests so far, said a few months ago that he wants to score big tons.

"It's very important for me to just look to score 100. Not just 100 but 150 or 160, then I can be more mentally tough for Test matches. I have done that in the past and have scored two or three double hundreds in first class cricket."

"When you score a lot of big hundreds, it definitely helps your batting," Raina, who has just one hundred from his debut match against Sri Lanka in Colombo in 2010, said.
