Hello dipak_Raghuwansi, and welcome to the friendly Camera Labs forum!
To enjoy your stay here please have a look at the house-rules!
Your question is best posted in the "Buying a new camera but undecided on brand?" section. So I've moved your post there.
It is also a good practice/rule to post a question only once in the forum.

Both cameras are capable of taking the photos you're looking for though the a35's higher shooting rate does give it a potential edge for sports photography. I don't know if the a35 has an intervalometer function (there should at least be a third-party timer) but the D5100 does so it can do time lapse photography quite easily.

If the truth be told, I'm not sure you can go wrong with either camera. It may be worth you trying out both of them and see which feels more comfortable and which one's menu you feel is more navigable.

DSLRs: Canon EOS 7D Mark II, Canon EOS 70D
CSC: Canon EOS M3
Lenses: Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM, EF 50mm f/1.8 II, EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM, Canon EF-M 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM, Canon EF-M 22mm f/2.0 STM
