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.

Editor's Pick (t20): India - South Africa

Whoever said ‘don’t make a habit out of it’ was not referring to winning. I do love writing ‘India won’ blogs and it is a pleasure to make a habit out of it as well. The Indian cricket team is most definitely making sure that the habit sticks. We are more than just on a roll in South Africa. We have found what clicks for us and we are making use of it. The best part is that almost all the players are performing. So we are actually open to experimenting and bringing in fresh faces. This way, not only do all the boys get the taste of playing, team South Africa is unable to get used to any one player long enough to figure out the style and a way to defeat it. Way to go Ravi Shastri and Virat Kohli. Talking about team selection. How is your selection going? Are you also listening to our audio podcast and getting that added advantage?
Let's get back to the matches. We lost the test matches. But we have won the ODI series in a landslide way. And are one up in the T20 series. We are repla…

Editor’s Pick(CPL): Trinbago Knight Riders vs Barbados Tridents

The previous match, Trinbago Knight Riders vs Guyana Amazon Warriors, saw the Knight Riders win by seven wickets. Played at Queen's Park Oval, Port of Spain, Trinidad, Chasing a target of 158, TKR scored 162 in 19 overs. Colin Munro, their highest scorer, hit 70 runs. It was a fairly one-sided match with TKR staying on top for most parts.
The Knight Riders are right on top of the table, with three wins and one loss from four matches played. Their run rate of +1.680 will matter, for sure. DLS has been applied in this tournament and can be applied again. Barbados Tridents come second on the table with two wins from three matches. They earlier beat St Lucas Stars by 21 runs (DLS Method). This will be a close match, considering that both teams are in good form.
Barbados Tridents (From): Dwayne Smith, Kane Williamson, Shoaib Malik, Kieron Pollard(c), Nicholas Pooran(w), Christopher Barnwell, Akeal Hosein, Wayne Parnell, Imran Khan, Ravi Rampaul, Wahab Riaz, Raymon Reifer, Damion Jacobs…

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 

India Cements Ground, Thirunelveli
NPR College Ground, Dindigul 
MA Chitambaram Stadium, Chennai 


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.…
