Women's Cricket World Cup - New Zealand

s


Be it men’s or women’s team, Australia and New Zealand have a strong rivalry going. Something that crosses over the gender line.
The New Zealand Women’s Cricket Team is currently ranked third with 59 matches, 7029
points and a rating of 119. This team was the champions in 2000. They are very much in the run for the cup this year.
This is because they have a balanced squad and have four players who played domestic cricket this summer in England are used to its unpredictable weather.
Let’s take a look at the team and see what we got
The squad:
Suzie Bates (c), Erin Bermingham, Sophie Devine, Maddy Green, Holly Huddleston, Leigh Kasperek, Amelia Kerr, Katey Martin, Tamsyn Newton, Katie Perkins, Anna Peterson, Rachel Priest, Hannah Rowe, Amy Satterthwaite, Lea Tahuhu.

Fixtures:
June 24 v Sri Lanka,
June 28 v South Africa,
July 2 v Australia,
July 6 v West Indies,
July 8 v Pakistan,
July 12 v England,
July 15 v India

Players to look out for:
29-year-old Captain, Suzie Bates (right-hand bat and right-arm medium) has been playing for over a decade now.  Her last match was against Australia in March earlier this year. She is very much in touch with the game and in-form. She is a batting allrounder who plays in the top order. Named ICC Women's ODI Cricketer of the Year along with player of the 2013 world cup Tournament, the captain is the safest bet if you are thinking of your Fantain Fantasy lineup.
30-year-old  Amy Satterthwaite (left-hand bat and right-arm off break) - Watch out for her. Known as the branch because of her height, she can contribute both with the bat and the ball. She has topped the batting averages in 2016 women’s World T20. Fear her.
27-year-old Sophie Devine is an integral part of her team. Starting off as a bowler, today she has steadily improved her batting big time. She scored three fifties in March this year at the T20Is. She’s in form and form is very important in the game.
16-year-old Leg Spinner Amelia Kerr became a sensation in a matter of two years. She is a treat to watch, irrespective of the format. When she was 14 and on the team, her then skipper of Wellington Blaze - Sophie Devine - predicted that she could be a world-beater.
She looks like she is on the right path.
New Zealand look like one of the top contenders for the Cup this season. They have all the right weapons clicking the right time. It is time to go for the kill.

Editor's Pick (t20): India - South Africa

Whoever said ‘don’t make a habit out of it’ was not referring to winning. I do love writing ‘India won’ blogs and it is a pleasure to make a habit out of it as well. The Indian cricket team is most definitely making sure that the habit sticks. We are more than just on a roll in South Africa. We have found what clicks for us and we are making use of it. The best part is that almost all the players are performing. So we are actually open to experimenting and bringing in fresh faces. This way, not only do all the boys get the taste of playing, team South Africa is unable to get used to any one player long enough to figure out the style and a way to defeat it. Way to go Ravi Shastri and Virat Kohli. Talking about team selection. How is your selection going? Are you also listening to our audio podcast and getting that added advantage?
Let's get back to the matches. We lost the test matches. But we have won the ODI series in a landslide way. And are one up in the T20 series. We are repla…

Editor’s Pick(CPL): Trinbago Knight Riders vs Barbados Tridents

The previous match, Trinbago Knight Riders vs Guyana Amazon Warriors, saw the Knight Riders win by seven wickets. Played at Queen's Park Oval, Port of Spain, Trinidad, Chasing a target of 158, TKR scored 162 in 19 overs. Colin Munro, their highest scorer, hit 70 runs. It was a fairly one-sided match with TKR staying on top for most parts.
The Knight Riders are right on top of the table, with three wins and one loss from four matches played. Their run rate of +1.680 will matter, for sure. DLS has been applied in this tournament and can be applied again. Barbados Tridents come second on the table with two wins from three matches. They earlier beat St Lucas Stars by 21 runs (DLS Method). This will be a close match, considering that both teams are in good form.
Barbados Tridents (From): Dwayne Smith, Kane Williamson, Shoaib Malik, Kieron Pollard(c), Nicholas Pooran(w), Christopher Barnwell, Akeal Hosein, Wayne Parnell, Imran Khan, Ravi Rampaul, Wahab Riaz, Raymon Reifer, Damion Jacobs…

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. The finalists are decided by two qualifiers along with one eliminator. This format has proven to be more exciting.…
