Editor’s Pick: India - Bangladesh

“Considered to be the current underdogs, the Bangladesh National Cricket Team can by no means be taken for granted. Nicknamed The Tigers, they are capable of bouncing back and surprising the opponents.”
This was what I had written about the Bangladesh National Cricket Team on our app. The team has surprised everyone by making it so far in the tournament. This is a huge celebration for the nation. The term underdogs will start to fade away soon enough.
News items and pictures are making the rounds, revealing the ugly side of the rivalry. The Indian Cricket Team should not fall prey and just concentrate on the game.
Between the two teams, India has won 26 out of 32 encounters.
My prediction of the playing eleven for the match tomorrow would be
Indian Team Squad
Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane, Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Hardik Pandya, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Umesh Yadav
Bangladesh Team Squad
Mashrafe Mortaza, Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib Al Hasan, Tamim Iqbal, Mahmudullah, Imrul Kayes, Sabbir Rahman, Soumya Sarkar, Mosaddek Hossain Saikat, Taskin Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman, Rubel Hossain
Now for the Editor’s pick. My pick..
Virat Kohli - The man leading the team.
M.S.Dhoni - He may not be captain anymore, but Kohli depends on him for little things. That is good enough for me.
Tamim Iqbal - Aggressive left-handed opener.
Rohit Sharma - The hard-hitter of the team.
Shikhar Dhawan - He has been magnificent in the tournament so far.
Bhuvaneshwar Kumar - India’s strength in pace bowling. A complete bowler
Jasprit Bumrah - Right arm fast medium bowler. Give him the new ball and watch wickets tumble.
Rubel Hossain - Can be the game-changer you are looking for.
Shakib Al Hasan - My all-rounder. Batting, bowling, and fielding.
Hardik Pandya - Another good all-rounder. He has a fantastic track record at that.
Mushfiqur Rahim - Batsman-wicket keeper. He’s a good one on the team too.
So far, the prominent decision of the team that has won the toss is to put the opponent into bat first. And it has seemed to work as well. It is imperative to put on a high score on the board so that the bowlers can defend it.
I’d say that the team batting second has a better chance.
Tomorrow, defending champions India take on neighbours Bangladesh in the 2nd Semis of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017. All the best to you too !!!!

TNPL - A Brief Rundown

Based on the stupendously successful Indian Premier League is the Tamil Nadu Premier League. This Indian T20 cricket league has been established by the Tamil Nadu State Cricket Association to bring out more and more Natarajans and Washingtons who otherwise do not get a chance to showcase their skill and talent in the world of Cricket. The inaugural edition of the TNPL took place in 2016 and received unexpected and unprecedented success and love. There was a brilliant batch of young men who came forward and made an event out of the first season of TNPL.

Venues 

India Cements Ground, Thirunelveli
NPR College Ground, Dindigul 
MA Chitambaram Stadium, Chennai 


Changes
The purpose of every organization is to make it bigger and better. TNPL is no exception. At the inaugural TNPL 2016, there were the traditional two semifinals and one final. This year will see a format similar to IPL. The finalists are decided by two qualifiers along with one eliminator. This format has proven to be more exciting.…

Editor’s Pick (Nidahas T20): India - Bangladesh

The tournament has reached a point that we all love. An exciting point where we still do not know who the finalists are. With just two matches to go and berth still wide open; the rest of the Nidahas tournament looks to be just as thrilling.
If India wins, India books a seat in the finals. If Bangladesh wins, the team takes the second place on the points table (or the first depending on the NRR) So while India should aim to win, an eye should be kept on the run rate at all times. Weather looks dicey as well. It might rain. D&L are prepared as well. Let’s also be. Picking a lineup at a rainy time is crucial. I would pick five batsmen to support a good score and a high run rate. With the batsmen of both teams playing rather well, you will have to pick carefully. Pick the more consistent ones. Bangladesh The team is on a high after the wins. The top five batsmen have clicked taking the team to a whole new level. The bowlers need to keep up with a more consistent line and length. India W…
