Indo-Pak Express
Not many would've bet on them to reach the final of the US Open but for glum Pakistani and Indian fans, forever in search of a hero, Aisam-ul Haq Qureshi and Rohan Bopanna have brought cheer just when it was needed most. Bopanna, nicknamed Bofors for his big serves, and Qureshi are an unlikely pair of friends but have shown that geography doesn't matter in relationships. Poised to meet the top seeds and the world number one pair, the Bryan twins - Bob and Mark - Bopanna and Qureshi are just a match away from making history.

F1 hits town

Clear your calendar and mark October 31, 2011 in a big, black circle in your datebook. Why? Because that Sunday is India's date with Formula One. At a world motor sports council meeting last week, the Indian Grand Prix finally got a date and is the third last race from the bottom of the calendar, which means that by the time the F1 jumbo jets roll in, the championship could be tantalisingly poised.


Davis Cup in Chennai
It's time for the war paint to be smeared, for the tricolour to flutter freely in the wind. Chennai gets ready to welcome Davis Cup back into its fold after a long wait of 31 years. India meet Brazil in a World Group playoff tie that could swing India's way provided its singles players, Somdev Devvarman and Rohan Bopanna, can seal the deal.

Balls, please!

The spot-fixing saga isn't anywhere near dying a natural death but life, as they say, must go on. Pakistan have no option to but recoup themselves and their shredded pride when they take on England in two ODIs over the weekend. But frankly, not many would want to bet on Pakistan anytime soon.
