Win For Your Woman !!!

Women? Cricket? Hell yes. There was a time when the same question was raised about tennis too. While the game was invented before the 1800s, it took close to a century to include women in it. It has been a popular assumption that women (read female players) do not get attention from the media. The famous movie, Chak De India had a dialogue that stated that the sponsorship for the women’s hockey team was taken and given to men.
The preconceived notion is that women’s sports are not worth the media coverage simply because it is a slower game, and hence less exciting.
This was then. Now the times are slowly changing. We have women participating in many sports. You name it, they are in it. Wrestling. Golf. Basketball. Soccer. And yes. Cricket.

Indian women have excelled in the field of sports in a sensational way. They made history recently at Rio, 2016. That is no mean feat. 21-year-old PV Sindhu became the first Indian Woman to win a silver medal at the Olympic Games. She fought like a tigress all through the tournament up until the last point. Another record was made when female wrestler Sakshi Malik picked up the bronze. First female wrestler and fourth Indian to do so. In the same event, Dipa Karmakar showed what she was made of as well. She might not have brought home a medal but she sure won all our hearts.

This is just Olympics. There are other women who have made our nation incredibly proud. Long distance runners Lalita Babar. Teenage golfer Aditi Ashok. Squash player Deepika Pallikal. Chess Player (woman Grandmaster 2005) Tania Sachdev. Captain of Women In Blue, Mithali Raj.

My point is that sports in India is changing. Women are changing it. From PT Usha to Nilima Ghose. Leela Row to Sania Mirza. Sania Mirza gave the perfect reply not just to TV Journalist Rajdeep Sardesai but to anyone who believed that a woman’s place is in the kitchen, barefoot and pregnant. She said that her not picking motherhood over career did not make her any less of a woman.

Times are changing. Time to accept it.

Women’s Cricket

We, at Fantain, are beginning to recognize the rapid increase in the visibility of Women’s cricket. They have gained in numbers in the recent times, Of course, the gender gap still remains. That will take a while to come even close. But having said that, women’s cricket is gaining momentum as it rightly should.
A look in the past will say that there are many signs stating that women’s popularity in the game is improving. When India hosted the men’s and the woman’s world Championships 20-20 cricket simultaneously, the men were flown in business class, and women, economy. Blatant discrimination by the ICC themselves. Next year though, all players were flown in business class.
Now, we have the women’s cricket world cup coming up in England. Having a separate event for the women just goes to show that the event will be a success on its own, without external support. The women’s world cup will thrive and be a success.
We have the game on our app as well. A win for your woman. That’s our slogan. Go ahead. Sign up with your lineup and see what’s in store for you. We will give you all the additional data that you can look up to make good choices.

Win for your woman !!!!!

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 it. I came very early. I …

Champions Trophy - India is the team to beat

They say tough times brings teams together.  They say adversity brings out the best in us.  Looks like that is what is happening to Team India in the ongoing Champions Trophy in the UK.   AlI the talk about match fixing and spot fixing and conflict of interest seems to be bringing out the best in team India.  I am writing this blog just ahead of the semi finals where India will play Sri Lanka.  But got to say this - looks like team India is firing on all cylinders.  I have never seen the Indian team perform so commandingly well in a tournament before - especially one played outside the sub-continent.  All aspects of the Indian team seems to be clicking well and India is clearly the best team in the tournament so far.
Our bowling is superb, with the exception of Ishanth Sharma.   Bhuvaneshwar Kumar continues to impress one and all - the amazing thing is the carry he gets even when he is bowling around 130 kmph.  I don't think it is because of the wickets alone - I feel the carry he …
