Editor's Pick: NZ Vs BAN


Tomorrow, New Zealand take on Bangladesh. We have seen in this tournament that both NZ and BAN have benefitted from the rain. Both teams have played two games each, lost one and received one point due to NO RESULT. Tomorrow’s match will mean something to them both. They’d want to earn their points.

Let’s start with New Zealand. A fairly decent team is the first impression. They have their batting issues though. So far, Kane Williamson, who has a 93% selection on our Fantasy App, is a must on your line-up. And here’s why. He has been consistent since the IPL. His contribution is all the more valuable considering that the other batsmen are yet to show their full potential. 

James Neesham, the KIWI Allrounder is a fine batsman. With a salary of 8, he could be the dark horse you might like to have on your team. Another batsman with an admiring technique is Ross Taylor. His fans have given him a 67% chance of selection. With a salary of 9, you can tell he is worth it because of his performance. His attacking methods might be exactly what the team needs to make it to the semis. Martin Guptill is also a good pick.

Amongst the bowlers, we have Adam Milne, the team’s opening fast bowler.  Luke is your Wicket Keeper.

Bangladesh is always capable of surprising you. They have a decent set of players to catch you off guard. For them, Kane is someone to watch out for. Bangladesh’s secret weapon to tackle Kane Williamson is Mustafizur Rehman. We have given him a salary of 11 for this very reason. He is a valuable player to have on your team. He’s a consistent seamer. Rubel Hossain, with a 49% selection, can also be a good bet against the Kiwis.

In the batting line-up, Tamim Iqbal is your man. With 162 points and 88 % selection score; you cannot have a team without him. Soumya Sarkar and Imrul Kayes are good picks as well. We also rate Mushfiqur Rahim very high. Don’t leave him out.

It is a must-win game for both. They are the bottom two of Group A. it is a game changer indeed. If NZ win against BAN and Australia lose to England, That is a BIG IF, then NZ are through. The same applies to Bangladesh too. All this subject to rain, of course.

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
