Editor’s pick: Sri Lanka - Pakistan


  
Another clash of the subcontinent coming your way. It is a big match at that. The net run rate matters too. And of course, the rain. Among all the teams that Pakistan has played against, they have met SL most often. The winning percentage is close to 60%. In favour of Pakistan. This is the match that decides the fate of the teams. Both parties are likely to give in their best.

Let’s take a look at each of the teams and see who we would want in our lineup.

Pakistan.

Openers play a very important role for Pakistan. If they click, the rest of the team tend to do well too. It’s a morale thing. Azhar Ali and Ahmed Shehzad. Ali with the swinging ball and Shehzad with many a skillful shot up his sleeves. Fans have given Babar Azam a high selection rate of 77. With a salary of 8, I don’t think he is a bad bet either. He is a good weapon in the middle order. The ICC ranks him number 7. Mohammad Hafeez, with 60 odd points is on my list  Ali is rated the highest of 72%. Stick to him, no matter what.

Then comes the bowlers. They have quite a few good ones too. There’s Hasan Ali with 78 points and 70% selection rate and Mohammad Amir with 72% who want him on their team. Hasan Ali took three wickets against South Africa. He’s good to go.
 If experience is anything to go by, Shoaib Malik could be worth a shot. We gave him a salary of 9. Would you think he’s worth it?

Sri Lanka

Currently, the top players clicked with the bat. There is Danushka Gunathilaka, Kusal Mendis, and Perera who held the fort down quite well against India. Angelo Mathews and Asela Gunaratne also contributed with the bat.

Old is gold. Hence, L Malinga is always on my team. Surunga Lakmal and Nuwan Pradeep can also give the team the much-needed break with the ball.

It is very hard to pick favourites in this match. Both teams began with a loss each and then came back on track to upstage surprising victories. Both teams meet after a win. They are looking good. Hope the weather doesn’t dampen what could be a good day for cricket.

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
