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 !!!!

Chennai beats Mumbai and clinch thriller

It is not just about coming back. It is about the impact you make in the process. And Chennai team knows how to with a bang.  The Chennai team beat the home team by one wicket in what was an absolute sit-at-the-end-of-the-chair thriller. It was one of the best chases the tournament has seen and it most definitely won't be the last. The player who made the difference in the end - Jadhav - literally came back from the dead after retiring hurt to take his team to the finish line by hitting the ball in style with a six and a four.  Batting on one leg and playing an absolutely unbelievable shot, this player leveled the scores first with a six and finished the match with a four.  Key Points  MI has never won their opener since 2013. This was Chennai's first win against MI in an opener of this T20 League  DRS used in the league for the first time  Bravo : It was a great team effort. I want to dedicate this win to the CSK fan, they have waited long for

Need for co-ed sports

Now, this is hardly a feminist piece. I am not here to tell you that women can do anything that men can and better too. One, you know it too. Two, this is hardly about women. I am not here to praise women and demand better rights. I am talking about the possibility that the entire field of sports can take a whole new meaning if gender is not made the criterion. So this is how the idea for the blog started. The Women’s Indian Cricket Team performed really well at the world cup this year. Mithali Raj praised her team for their hard work, persistence, and passion for the game. She also added that there should be an IPL tournament in the country for the women’s team now. Raj believes that the team’s fantastic game has increased the fan following for the women’s team as well and that they have earned their place here. While I am honestly not sure about an IPL tournament for women, it did get me thinking. Why not mixed sports? Now that girls play almost all the games that the guys do, w

Blog Time: How I won my Fantain Fantasy Cricket

I played the Sri Lanka – Zimbabwe match and I won more than six times what I put in. That is a really good investment, isn’t it? I have been asked by Fantain to share what I did and how I planned my lineup. This is how. Kusal Perera  – I made him captain. I won a massive 120 points. My vice-captain was Dinesh Chandimal .  So I got 43.5. In hindsight, I could have picked Perera. He did fabulously well and earned a whopping 89 on the app. The other player in my lineup who helped me win was Sikandar Raza . He got 88.5 on the app. These four players are a must be in the next match between Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe.  Dinesh Chandimal is one good consistent player that I always have. So it’s like this. I have four categories when I play fantasy cricket. One is the must-have players who will be on my team no matter what. For this match that I played, they were Kusal Perera, Dinesh Chandimal, and Upul Tharanga. For me, old is gold. Experience speaks volumes. The second category is ba
