10 BEST Sports Photos of the Week!

November 02, 2015 14:19 IST

It's been an exciting week for Indian sports as yet again tennis sensation Sania Mirza and her doubles partner Martina Hingis have won a title, this time it is the WTA Finals women's doubles trophy, in Singapore.

The pair had already bagged 2015 WTA- Year-End No 1 doubles ranking.

In the Women's Vault Final of 2015 World Gymnastics Championships, the 22-year-old Dipa Karmakar finished fifth in a strong field of eight gymnasts.  The girl from Agartala had become the first Indian to make it to the event finals of Vault at the World Championships.

The Indian cricket team’s dressing room saw 'another wicket fall' as India’s 'Turbanator' became a married man. Harbhajan tied the nuptial knot with long-time girlfriend Geeta Basra in a gurudwara in Jalandhar on last Thursday.

New Zealand cemented their status as the greatest team in rugby history when they overwhelmed Australia 34-17 to become world champions for a record third time, and the first nation to retain the Webb Ellis Cup.

Rediff.com recaptures these and other exciting sporting moments from the week gone by....
