Playcall - the Fantain game

Play like the captain of your team

As cricket fans, we always have an opinion on what the captain should do.  Should we bat or bowl if we win the toss?  Should we select 2 spinners in this track? Who should bowl first? Who should bat next ? Which fielder should stand in long off...decisions...decisions...decisions.  We congratulated the captains for good decisions and blamed them for defeats.  And many times, as cricket fans, we have said - "How I wish I could be the captain that made those decisions !!!"

Editor's Pick (ODI Finals): Bangladesh - Sri Lanka

The finals are finally here. Bangladesh meets Sri Lanka leaving Zimbabwe out. You might think that being home series for Bangladesh, it is really no big deal. But it really is not so. Sri Lanka lost home series. Now Australia is facing severe defeat by England. There is no such thing that it is normal for the home team to win anymore. Plus I would really like to appreciate Bangladesh for the way they are making into the big league of cricket today. If you look at the points table, you will see that Bangladesh won three out of four matches. Their points - 15 - are almost four times the score of Zimbabwe. Sri Lanka, with 9 points, made it to the finals. The last match saw Sri Lanka Beat Bangladesh. The only match that the home team ever lost. Makes you wonder if Bangladesh peaked a tad too early, doesn’t it? It was a comprehensive win for Sri Lanka. Bangladesh were 82 all out in 24 overs. Sri Lanka hit the target in less than 12 overs and won by ten wickets. It was really a o

Blog Time: India beat South Africa by 63 runs

It is a pleasure to write a winning blog like this when our team is visiting a tough pitch such as South Africa. Us winning in India is actually no big deal seeing as our pitch conditions are designed to suit our needs and preferences. Winning in South Africa is a fantastic. Take a bow. To beat South Africa on that wicket was really really something. A tremendous effort by the men in blue. We have taken 60 wickets in three test matches. This is a rare event in away from home series. Looking at how the lineup on Fantain Fantasy App worked. In my lineup, I had picked Virat Kohli as the captain. He earned 69.5 points giving me almost 140 (the captain is awarded twice the points he makes on the app). The winner who played in the 250 rupee pool and won a whopping thousand rupees - he made Bhuvneshwar Kumar as his captain and Vernon Philander as the VC. A very smart move seeing as this pitch is the playground of fast bowlers. The pitch can clearly decide not only the bowle

Blog Time: Bangladesh Beats Sri Lanka

Bangladesh defeated Sri Lanka in their own den. The Lions losing to India was somewhat alright. I mean it is India. And the current team is one of the best teams in the world. They also defeated South Africa in South Africa. But Sri Lanka losing to Bangladesh in Sri Lanka will be extremely hard to digest. A lot of people were surprised. Now I have the habit of rooting for the underdogs and I had a feeling that Bangladesh had it in them. It was nice to be able to tell others, “I told you that Bangladesh could win”. Mushfiqur Rahim held back his celebrations until the winning runs were stroked What did happen? Sri Lanka came in to bat first and hit a solid 214 runs in 20 overs. It was a very good score indeed. Perera’s 74 along with Kusal Mendis’s 57 took the runs to a competitive level. It seemed like a sure-fire win for the lions. A very fair assumption to make too. And then came in Bangladesh. From the word go, they were on the track to victory. The first wicket fell at
