Editor’s Pick(TNPL): Madurai Super Giants - Karaikudi Kaalai

The previous TNPL match saw Tuti Patriots defeat Ruby Trichy Warriors. Washington Sundar’s 49 and KM Gandhi’s 72 stood out. the Patriots are back on the top of the table with two wins from two matches and a good run rate of +1.251. Dindigul Dragons, who are second on the table with one win from two matches, have a better run rate of +2.2130. Time will tell if this run rate will make a difference. The teams that are yet to register a win are Karaikudi Kaalai, VB Thiruvallur Veerans, Ruby Trichy Warriors and Madurai Super Giants.
Let’s take a look at a possible lineup for the next match. Both teams are looking for their much needed first win to get to the top half of the table. Madurai lost all seven matches last season. They will be more determined than ever.

Tennis - a new season with exciting prospects

This article is written by Rajnikanth - a sports fan and a tennis fanatic.  He is on a personal mission to watch ATP events in every place possible :-) and is hoping that his god 'Roger Federer' wins a few more tournaments in 2014.  Rajni is a banker and is based in the middle east.  You can reach Rajni on his email - rajnikanth_r@yahoo.com


The new year was rung in with greetings from players across the world, followed by some key announcements. The new season is already a fortnight old and there have been plenty of excitement and several developments - on the Tennis court and off it!
Rafael Nadal continued his good run since his comeback in Feb 2013 but also suffered a rare loss at the hands of his compatriot, Davis Cup team mate and good friend David Ferrer in the exhibition tournament at Abu Dhabi and finished third.

Fan Data Analytics: Key to drive sports company growth

Over the last several years, the buzz word in business and IT circles has been "big-data" and analytics. Many many articles and write-ups talk about them so I won't go into the details. You could get enough to last a lifetime with just the first few results of a Google search of these terms. But do you really know how it applies, specifically to a sports company?

For long, sports franchises have been one of the biggest users of analytics. Before this was a buzz word, coaches and managers have relied up numbers and finding patterns in them to drive on-field performance. Indeed, the major leagues of the world have relied on performance analytics for everything from scouting for talent to calling the action on the field of play.

But that never transcended to the off-field, more mundane but equally important task of managing the sports business. As more and more options come up vying for the fan's attention - live events, travel, other sports, TV, the Internet - the war…

Editor's Pick: England - South Africa (TEST)

I have been watching cricket for a while now. When it comes to the international matches, my instinct is always to pick the man who has been around a while. For me, experience almost always takes preference. There have been exceptions of course. But today is not that day.
England and South Africa met for a three match T-20 and are now set to face each other for the test series. Having met so recently, they are fairly familiar with each other and will be prepared.
Philander is declared fit to play for SA. Rabada and Morkel have my vote. Dean Elgar will captain if Du Plessis misses the first match ( personal reasons).
England - Hales and Roy will be depended upon. Broad believes he is fit for the match. Joe Root wears the captain’s cap. And he brings in Gary Ballance. England might bring in two spinners along with three fast bowlers for their attack.
This is my lineup for the first test match.
