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.

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.

The bigger they are, the harder they fall. Ain't it true. Newcomers Sultans thrash Peshawar Zalmi by 7 wickets in PSL 2018 opener sending shockwaves through the league. Being a defending champion did take a toll on Peshawar Zalmi. Not easy walking into a tournament with everyone looking at you assuming you will win.


When the Sultans came in to bat, they had an early upset when they lost the opener for a duck. With a target of 152, it took the experienced Kumara Sangakkara to set the ship on course towards the target. He was calm and composed as he has been throughout his international career. 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…
