SQUASH BID: The PTI reported cricket stars like Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag supporting squash's bid for inclusion in the 2020 Olympics "has left India's wrestling fraternity distraught." Cricketers' "open love for squash has hurt the sentiments" of Olympic medalists Sushil Kumar and Yogeshwar Dutt, who have asked the players to hold placards similar to "2020 Squash -- Back the bid", for wrestling. Kumar said, "How could they (cricketers) do this to us? We are going through a tough phase and these cricketing icons should support us in our bid to get back into the Olympic fold. Instead, they are supporting squash which is not so popular in the country" (PTI, 2/24).
