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.

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.…

Editors Pick ( PKL)

Not much cricket happening for the next two days. More time for Kabaddi now. We are in the month of October. Closer to the next round. The status of the teams on the Pro Kabaddi table matter big time now. It is time for the teams to keep an eye on their ranks all the time now. No pressure :)

Let’s take a look at the table. The top three teams in each zone make it to the next level. The points were very close at one point and then apart. Some teams have been super consistent doing well and others, consistently at the bottom of the table. Team A has four teams who are fighting for the next level big time - Gujarat Fortune Giants, Haryana Steelers, Puneri Paltan and U Mumba. Jaipur Pink Panthers and Dabang Delhi are closer to the bottom and will have to do really really well to make a difference. Zone B - the bottom two teams - Bengaluru Bulls and Tamil Thalaivas are not looking too hot. The top four teams are Patna Pirates, Bengal Warriors, U.P.Yoddha and Telugu Titans.

In a crux, any o…

Editor’s Pick (Women’s Cricket): India - West Indies

India, fourth on the table, has won her first game while West Indies lost. India has a lot to prove for her country. That She deserves as much love and support as the men in blue. Sad that She has to, but circumstances demand it. West Indies on the other hand are looking for a win to kick start their journey to the final.
It is a win-win situation for both the teams. But then, I want my fantasy lineup to win too. So, for this lineup, I have looked up not only the selection percentage generated by fans’ choice, but also the players’ performance in this tournament so far.
My Team 
-Chedean Nation -Mithali Raj -Smriti Mandhana -Punam Raut -Ekta Bisht -Shakera Salman -Shamilia Connel -Poonam Yadav -Meriss Aguilleira -Deepti Sharma -Harmanpreet kaur Let’s hope this clicks. Will you agree with it? Let’s hear some opinions shall we?
