Editor’s Pick: England - South Africa

In the first match, England crushed South Africa by nine wickets. It was a convincing victory that put South Africa in its place. Morgan called it as close to a complete performance as possible. Looks like the new ball bowling made all the difference. Man of the match Jonny Bairstow was immensely pleased with his performance. If you had him in your fantasy lineup, you’d be pleased too.

Earlier in June, we saw Pakistan beat England by eight wickets and South Africa beat Sri Lanka by a colossal 96 runs. Nothing can really be predicted clearly.

But I do have a line up in my head that can be based not just on the performance of the players at the CT but in the previous match. Earlier I had assumed that the lineup in the first match won’t be that different from the second. But looks like I have made a couple of big changes.

Jonny Bairstow
AB De Villiers
Farhaan Behardien
Alex Hales
Jason Roy
Mark Wood
David Willey
Andile Phehlukwayo
Mason Crane
Jos Buttler
Tabraiz Shamsi

Editor’s Pick (Nidahas T20): India - Sri Lanka

The table is currently in a very surprising situation. Most expected Sri Lanka to show Bangladesh the door. But here they are still standing up and shining. The tournament is wide open. Today’s match is between India and Sri Lanka. The stakes are much higher now that Bangladesh is more feared than before. The teams would not want to risk anything at this point. Earlier I had said that they might experiment with the lineup and give everyone a chance. Now it will be more than giving people a chance. They will strategize. The Indian team will be open to experimentation, but not at the cost of results.

The untested ones are Deepak Hooda, KL Rahul, and Axar Patel. India has lost to Sri Lanka in their first encounter of this tournament. They will want to be wary because another defeat could cost them the tournament itself. So, not all the new players will see the light today.
A lot depends on Rohit Sharma today. Shikhar Dhawan, Suresh Raina, Manish Pandey and Dinesh Karthik will chip in too.…
