Editor’s Pick - England South Africa Second Test

In the first test, England Beat South Africa by 211 runs. The match was over on the fourth day, with Moeen Ali taking six wickets to stump the opponents. South Africa was truly taken by surprise and bowled out for 119 runs.
England’s first innings saw 458 runs on the board. South Africa replied with 361, falling short by 97 runs. In a test match, this difference is honestly not much. England came in to add on 233 more runs, giving SA a target of 330. They did not see what hit them. They did not see Moeen Ali. South Africa fell short by a massive 211.

Now for our game. In the first test match on our fantasy app, Vernon Philander and Keshav Maharaj have performed better than expectations. My previous lineup did not include Moeen Ali, Vernon Philander, and Keshav Maharaj.
Stuart Broad and de Kock can also be included.

So keeping all this in mind, let’s see what our lineup for the second test could be

Batsmen
Temba Bavuma
Joe Root
Alastair Cook

Bowlers
Morne Morkel
Keshav Maharaj
Stuart Broad
Kagiso Rabada

Wicket-Keepers
Jonny Bairstow
Quinton De Kock

All-Rounders
Ben Stokes
Moeen Ali

I have done this before. Pick the top performing players while ignoring the percentage of the fans selection. There are always differences. For instance, Amla has a 70% selection rate by the fans. I am not adding him in my team.

Trend analysis is quite hard because the same player does not always consistently perform. Oh well. No one said it was easy.

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
