Editor's Pick: India - West Indies

First Match - Abandoned
Second Match - India Beat West Indies by 105 runs.
Third Match - India Beat West Indies by 93 runs.

When West Indies came out to bat, they had a target of 252. It wasn’t a very high target, but the wickets fell like bowling pins, in a manner of speaking. With no individual score reaching half-century, the West Indies Team fell prey to the Indian attack - Bowling and Morale. Kuldeep Yadav and R Ashwin took three wickets each. Hardik Pandya took two wickets with Kedhar Jadhav and U Yadav taking one each. It was a merry day for the bowlers.

Earlier, India came in to bat first. Rahane hit a 72 off 112 balls and Dhoni, 78 from 79. Kedhar Jadhav added to the scoreboard with his 40. This seemed more than enough clearly.

Now India cannot lose. They hope to win. Let’s see what happens.

For the fourth match between India and West Indies, I am in the mood to experiment a bit. So, my first lineup is going to be traditional safe one.

Kedar Jadhav
Yuvraj Singh
Ajinkya Rahane
Shikhar Dhawan
Virat Kohli
Alzarri Joseph
Ashley Nurse
Miguel Cummins
M.S.Dhoni
Shai Hope
Jason Holder

My experimental lineup has only three regular batsmen. And no Kohli. Yes. I have piled on the bowlers because of the previous match.

Ajinkya Rahane
Yuvraj Singh
Shikhar Dhawan
Miguel Cummins
Devendra Bishoo
Alzarri Joseph
Kuldeep Yadav
R Ashwin
MS Dhoni
Hardik Pandya
Jason Holder

Which one would you want? The trad or the rad?

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

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.…

Editor’s Pick (Nidahas T20): India - Bangladesh

The tournament has reached a point that we all love. An exciting point where we still do not know who the finalists are. With just two matches to go and berth still wide open; the rest of the Nidahas tournament looks to be just as thrilling.
If India wins, India books a seat in the finals. If Bangladesh wins, the team takes the second place on the points table (or the first depending on the NRR) So while India should aim to win, an eye should be kept on the run rate at all times. Weather looks dicey as well. It might rain. D&L are prepared as well. Let’s also be. Picking a lineup at a rainy time is crucial. I would pick five batsmen to support a good score and a high run rate. With the batsmen of both teams playing rather well, you will have to pick carefully. Pick the more consistent ones. Bangladesh The team is on a high after the wins. The top five batsmen have clicked taking the team to a whole new level. The bowlers need to keep up with a more consistent line and length. India W…
