Editor's pick: England - South Africa


Both teams were knocked out of the ICC Champions Trophy. Not enough time has passed for them to forget it so easily. They will be bogged down by that memory for sure. But hey!! New Day. New Game. New Tournament.

They will look forward to create fresh and better memories. The three match T-20 series is a good opportunity get back in the groove. England have shown that they need to be feared, by winning most of their matches and lasting till the semis. South Africa needs to up their game. Both England and South Africa are good sides nevertheless.

The series will be worth a watch.

Coming to the lineup, there are a few plays who displayed outstanding cricket in the recent past. Having them on your lineup will definitely up your chances. Course, the lineup could change for the second and third match depending on form and possible injury. England have pulled out Ben Stokes, Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali in the name of rest. Some new boys have entered the game - Dawid Malan, Tom Curran, Liam Livingstone and Craig Overton.

My team on the app for the first match would be -

Eoin Morgan
Alex Hales
Jason Roy
Jos Buttler
AB De Villiers
Jonny Bairstow
Morne Morkel
Mangaliso Mosehle
Imran Tahir
Chris Jordan
Liam Dawson
Tabraiz Shamsi

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.

Editor’s Pick(PKL)

Four more days of Kabaddi, a teeny break and the next round commences on October 23rd. The super playoffs. All this hard work only for that. A look at the point table will give you an idea about who COULD go to the next level. Course anything could happen in the last minute. Anyone could topple. You remember the havoc Bangladesh created during the Champions Trophy. They threw out the big guns. I mean, they probably stopped West Indies from qualifying too, come to think of it. Back to Kabaddi. Zone A is still topped by Gujarat followed by Haryana and Pune. The other three teams - Mumbai, Jaipur and Delhi. Zone B, Bengal take the lead followed by Patna and UP. Today’s match-UP meets Bengaluru. UP is third and are doing very good for themselves. Bengaluru, fifth on the table, don’t really look like they have a chance. Only thing they do want to do now is walk out with a smile saying yes, we tried. UP Yoddha - Squad strength: 18 (16 Indian, 2 Overseas) Defenders – Jeeva Kumar, Ha

From all of us Fans to Players & Officials: Please don't treat us with kid gloves

As any fan will tell you, we not just love, but understand the sport and our teams like no one else. And that’s also why they keep bankrolling the big fat salaries of the players, the profits of the clubs and the boondoggle of officials. The recently concluded test match raised, in my mind, three instances where the thought process seems to be – it is OK for us to handle it, but it is too hot for fans . Common, now, please don’t treat us with kid gloves. One: The first one, inevitably, is about the DRS and taking the dugouts inputs in it. The rules are clear – the decision to ask for a decision review stays with the players on the field. Within a few seconds of the umpires’ decision, the batting team can dispute an out decision or the bowling team can dispute a not-out decision, without consulting with anyone outside the playing field. The controversy of Smith’s ‘brain-fade’ and Kohli’s allegations have played out ad nauseam on TV and cyberspace, so I will spare you that
