Munich: Young Manu Bhaker secured India its seventh Olympic quota in shooting with a fourth-place finish in the women’s 10m air pistol event of the ISSF World Cup here on Wednesday, putting behind the disappointment of pistol malfunction in her earlier event. While a score of 201.0 in the final got India a quota for the 2020 Tokyo Games, the 17-year-old Bhaker missed out on a medal by the narrowest of margins, trailing reigning Olympic and world champion Anna Korakaki of Greece by a mere 0.1 point at that stage.

On Monday, Bhaker suffered a heartbreak as she missed out on the podium after a weapon malfunction saw her slip to fifth spot after leading the field. Yashaswini Singh Deswal, a junior World Cup winner, was also on course to make the final before a poor series of 92 in the final set saw her slip to 22nd with a total of 574 (17 x inner 10s). Heena Sidhu, the third Indian in the fray, was placed 45th with a total of 570 (13 x inner 10s). Korakaki and the bronze winning Korean Kim Minjung were not eligible from the start, having exhausted either their individual or country quotas in earlier competitions.

India have now picked up two Olympic quotas from the ongoing World Cup as well as three gold medals to lead the medal tally with one more day to go. Sunidhi Chauhan gave a good account of herself in the women’s 50m rifle 3 positions event, losing out on a maiden ISSF World Cup finals berth on account of lesser inner 10s. Needing to be among the top eight to qualify for the final, Sunidhi shot a creditable 1175 to tie on points with the 6th, 7th and 8th placed shooters, but Italian former world champion Petra Zublasing edged her out for the last spot with 57-inner 10 counts to Sunidhi’s 51.

SHARJAH, United Arab Emirates, (CMC):Captain Darren Sammy’s rearguard knock was not enough to save Peshawar Zalmi from their second straight defeat as they went down to Chris Gayle and Kieron Pollard’s Karachi Kings in the Pakistan Super League here yesterday.Chasing 175 for victory at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Zalmi slumped to 69 for six in the 12th over before staging a stirring comeback to come up just short at 165 all out, with one ball remaining in the innings.Sammy helped lead the rally, stroking 34 from 26 deliveries with a four and three sixes, in a 70-run seven-wicket stand with all-rounder Shahid Afridi, who slammed 54 off 28 deliveries.Together, they had pulled Zalmi back into contention when Sammy perished in the 18th over, pulling an innocuous delivery from seamer Sohail Khan (3-28) to Gayle at short fine leg.Once he departed, Afridi was left to carry the burden, but his dismissal in the final over ensured Kings’ victory.FAILED TO SPARKEarlier, Kings rattled up 174 for four off their 20 overs, with Shoaib Malik top-scoring with 51 from 27 balls and opener Babar Azam hitting 46 from 38 deliveries.However, Gayle yet again failed to spark, making 11 from nine balls at number three before holing out to a superb catch at long on by England’s Eoin Morgan off off-spinner Iftikhar Ahmed in the 13th over.Pollard faced just four balls at the end for his four not out.
