Editor’s Pick(TNPL): Madurai Super Giants - Dindigul Dragons

Yesterday’s match saw Chennai defeat win the match and defeat Thiruvallur by six wickets. VTV gave CSG a target of 127 which was achieved rather easily with 9 deliveries to spare. The player of the match was awarded to Gopinath. Satish took three vital wickets and made all the difference. Gopinath’s 50 helped Chennai cruise to victory. There is always something about a match that wins with a boundary at the close.

Today’s match
When the two teams met in the first edition of the TNPL, the dragons won by 14 runs. Set to chase a target of 143, the giants could muster only 131. N Jagadeesan of DD scored 71. 12 runs is a lot of.
Madurai finish last in 2016 and will want to overturn the tables this year. A year is not long enough for the giants to forget this. It could be payback time.

India-NZ. As it happened.

And the series is leveled. Well. We saw the ODI series level. The third and final match was more than a blast. Despite having a ton of runs on the scoreboard, the match and the series could have gone either way. That was the best part of it. Course it was a world of entertainment for all cricket fans. Honestly even a third party not emotionally vested in the two teams could watch and appreciate the demonstration of fine cricket. Now the T20 series is looking the same way. India won the first match and NZ came back strong and hard in the second match. The match deciding the fate of the tournament is on 7th November. Boy are we interested or what. Let’s see what happened in the second match now.

New Zealand won the toss and decided to bat. A supreme not out 58 ball 109 runs by Colin Munro took New Zealand to the path of destruction. I mean look at the strike rate - 187.93. That is a mind blowing number. The other batsmen didn’t do that bad either. Martin Guptil’s 45 runs from 41 deliver…

Peshawar Zalmi vs Multan Sultans - Post Match Blog.

Singles and doubles. And planned boundaries. By the time he was out, caught behind, the team was fairly stable. Shoaib Malik’s captain knock along with Kieron Pollard finished the match in style.
Earlier in the day, Peshawar Zalmi came in to bat. Apart from Mohammad Hafeez’s 59, with twenty-something runs from Dwayne Smith and Darren Sammy; the rest of the batsmen barely contributed. Like I s…
