Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - Live - - SPORT -

CHANDI­GARH: Union par­lia­men­tary af­fairs min­is­ter Pawan Kumar Bansal in­au­gu­rated four new ten­nis courts, re-laid ex­clu­sively for the Davis Cup tie be­tween In­dia and New Zealand to be played at the CLTA com­plex from Septem­ber 14-16, here on Wed­nes­day. This will be the third time Chandi­garh hosts a Davis Cup tie. Pre­vi­ously, the CLTA had or­gan­ised the In­di­aJa­pan Davis Cup tie in 1990, fol­lowed by the tie be­tween In­dia and Australia in 1993. Af­ter be­ing shown the courts by Jai Singh Gill and Rajan Kashyap, CLTA's pres­i­dent and pa­tron-in-chief, re­spec­tively, the min­is­ter also played a cus­tom­ary ten­nis shot in front of mem­bers of the or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee. Bansal was later taken around the CLTA com­plex where trainees are housed. He met some of the trainees and other of­fi­cials, and then at­tended a meet­ing of the or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee at the new Con­fer­ence Hall, where heads of var­i­ous com­mit­tees gave a de­scrip­tion of var­i­ous ar­range­ments be­ing made for the tie. DEEPAK BUILDERS IN QUAR­TER­FI­NALS CHANDI­GARH: Deepak Builders en­tered the quar­ter­fi­nals of the first Hot Weather cricket tour­na­ment by reg­is­ter­ing an 80-run win over Pa­ni­pat at DAV Col­lege, Sec­tor 10, here on Wed­nes­day.

Bat­ting first, the Builders made 205 for six in their given quota of 20 overs, with Sim­rat Bawa (57) top scor­ing for the side. In re­ply, Pa­ni­pat put up a poor bat­ting show and were bowled out for 125 in 18 overs.
