The 11th South Asian Games (SAG) is to be held from Jan. 29 to Feb. 8 in 2010 in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh.

The 39th executive meeting of South Asian Olympic Council (SAOC) held in Nepali capital Kathmandu on Monday night decided the date. Before that, host Bangladesh once decided to organize South Asian Mega sports event on November, 2009. But due to the general elections in Bangladesh, the games were postponed.

The meeting also decided to include eight more games in the 11th edition of SAG. They are badminton, basketball, cricket, judo, volleyball, wrestling, golf and cycling.

Wrestling and golf were selected by host nation Bangladesh. Cricket, basketball and golf were introduced for the first time in SAG.

However, there will be only female events on badminton and cycling for the eight added games.

Cricket will play on 20-20-over format by players aged under 21.

Except Afghanistan, all seven South Asian countries members were present on the meeting.

President of Nepal Olympic Committee (NOC) Dhruba Bahadur Pradhan is happy over including more games in SAG . He said to Xinhua on Tuesday, "Judo, wrestling and badminton help Nepal to grab more medals."

Besides the eight added games, another 15 games were decided earlier at the meeting. They are athletics, archery, boxing, football, hockey, handball, kabaddi, karate, swimming, shooting, squash Taekwondo, table tennis, weightlifting and Wushu.

Doel is the mascot



Doel (Robin Magpie), the national bird of Bangladesh, has been chosen as the figure of the mascot.

Mahmud Islam, a former student of Dhaka University Art Institute, designed the mascot.

You need aggression to get gold medals. Doel don't have aggression. Bd participants don't get golds. 2 and 2 makes 5.

I would have thought something in the line of Tigers.

Amazing how BCCI is treating Olympic Association of their own country!

BCCI may not send team for South Asian Games

The Indian Olympic Association's ambition to send a cricket team to take part in a Twenty20 tournament that is part of the South Asian Games is set to go unfulfilled as the Board of Control for Cricket in India has no interest in pursuing the matter.

The South Asian Games will be held in Dhaka from January 29 to February 9, 2010.

“There is no proposal to send a team to the South Asian Games,” N Srinivasan, secretary of the BCCI told the Hindustan Times.

The BCCI, incidentally, had not replied to a proposal to send a team even to the Asian Games in Guangzhou next year.

In 1998, a second-string team was sent to the Commonwealth Games and performed well below expectations, even as several key players took part in a series against Pakistan in Toronto.

Randhir Singh, secretary general of the Indian Olympic Association, first wrote to Srinivasan on September 23 this year and received no response.

Following this, PM Narayanan of the IOA has sent several reminders, via email and fax, none of which have been replied to.

“Once we were notified that cricket was included, we had written to the BCCI,” Randhir Singh told Hindustan Times. “We are still awaiting a response.”

As per regulations, the team for the South Asian Games would have to comprise players who were under the age of 21 as on January 28, 2010.

However, India’s best young cricketers will be busy at the time, defending their under-19 title at the World Cup in New Zealand in January 2010.

That's expected as this would be a great occasion for the Nepalese.

What sort of team are we going to send? I suggest a few Academy and U19 players along with the performers of the DPL such as Sanjamul Islam, Shofiul Islam, Shubagoto Hom etc.

U/19 teams won't make it back from NZ by the time SAG starts. That means no U/19 players from Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sr Lanka, India, or Afghanistan.

The opening ceremony was a fantastic one, the biggest and the most colorful ceremony that ever took place in Bangladesh. Really impressed by the aquatic and laser show, to me it looked better than the IPL's ones, gives me a great hope for the WC 2011.
