Editor’s Pick(Women’s Cricket): England - Australia

India lost to South Africa. After four wins on a trot ( which I bragged about), She had her first loss in this tournament. Hope she didn’t peak too early. Time will tell. They lost by 115 runs. A very big margin. Now, I don’t use the word ‘thrash’ unless it was India that won.

India bundled out for 158. The batsmen really need to work on their performance if they intend to pick up the trophy. Yes, they still are in the run, being second on the table. But there is no reason to be lethargic about it. Come on girls !!!

Lizelle Lee Hit a 65-ball 92 runs. Apart from Dane’s 57, the other contributions are not really worth mentioning. The total of 273 was more than enough to ensure their third victory in this tournament. They are placed fourth currently, after Australia, India and New Zealand.

The next match - England - Australia. Both teams have some really good performances. The players are living up to their name and fame. Picking the fantasy lineup was honestly not that hard.

Fantasy Sports in India - Growth and Future

Not Just Yet Another Western Import
Fantasy sports is already a huge phenomenon world over, particularly in the Western world, and is only growing. And an ecosystem is developing around it – from sports experts to technology providers to ordinary fans turned pundits. Industry estimates peg the overall market for Fantasy Sports in the US alone to be $4 Billion annually[1] and grew at a rate of 8.5%[2] annually between 2011-2016. It is only estimated to maintain and improve that trajectory of growth in the next 5 years.
Fantasy Sports in India has picked up significantly over the past few years, coinciding with the rise of franchise sports, particularly cricket and IPL.
