Qatar Keep Basketball Dream Alive
It's been a roller-coaster period for the basketball ranks of Qatar, who—in the same 24-hour window of announcing that their women's team would withdraw from competition—saw their men produce an upset win over the Philippines.
BBC Sport confirmed that a ban on the hijab had forced Qatar's women to pull out of the basketball competition, and the sport's governing body FIBA released a statement, saying:
While certain groups have interpreted the provisions of the official basketball rules as a ban against the participation of players of certain faiths in basketball competitions, the uniform regulations are of a purely sporting nature.
Nevertheless, a men's side led by the talents of veteran Boney Watson managed to pull away from the Gilas Pilipinas threat, winning 77-68 thanks to a third quarter that saw them outscore their Filipino foes 20-12.
Qatar now pin all their basketball hopes on the men, hoping that a win over Kazakhstan on Saturday can pave the way to a place in the semi-finals.
Pakistan Triumph in Gold-Standard Cricket Climax
The women's cricket drew a mass amount of attention on Friday as Pakistan took down their Bangladeshi counterparts in a final that was unsurprisingly hyped with huge gusto.
The BBC's Ahmen Khawaja congratulated the victors on their gold medal, a victory which will be treated in Pakistan as being worth more than its value in the medal table:
However, it wasn't just the result or fixture itself that excited, but more the manner in which it came about, with Bangladesh looking in good shape for the win but ultimately wasting a huge opportunity.
Pakistan mounted a total of just 97-6 from their 20 overs, with Bangladesh' bowlers managing to limit their opponents. However, Pakistan's attack proved even more effective, reducing Bangladesh to 38 for 9.
The final two batsmen, though, managed to then score 42 runs in seven overs to create some drama, but it wasn't enough as Pakistan edged to a victory that the nation will hold with irrepressible pride.
