The London Classic Chess tournament kicked off last week where India's Viswnathan Anand is making a few good moves. But it wasn't the best of week's for Indian cricketer Rohit Sharma who made low scores, including a duck in the 4th Test at Feroz Shah Kotla in New Delhi on Saturday.
Alongside there was the Women's Sevens Rugby and the World Hockey League Finals.
