Editor’s Pick(Women’s Cricket): England - South Africa

We are close to the climax of what has been a fantastic cricket tournament for women. #GirlsAreAwesome. It is really true. They have displayed phenomenal stamina along with skills and tactics to prove why they deserve to be part of the national team of their respective countries.

The first match of the Women’s Cricket World Cup is between England and South Africa. The match takes place at Bristol County Ground, Bristol. The weather conditions look a tad gloomy and overcast. If weather reports are to be believed (it is England, anything can happen), there is a 20% chance of rainfall.
Bristol has given England the loudest support at home so far. It will make a difference to their morale.

Captain Heather Knight is on a roll along with Nat Sciver. The South Africans have Lizelle Lee, M Kapp, and M Daniells. Meg Lanning is expected to be back after a rest.
These players are a good add to your fantasy lineup. Laura Marsh and D Hazel too.

My lineup

Batsmen
Tammy Beaumont
Laura Wolvaardt
Heather Knight
Lizelle Lee

Bowlers
Anya Shrubsole
Katherine Brunt
Moseline Daniels

Wicket-Keepers
Sarah Taylor
Trisha Chetty

All-Rounders
Nat Sciver
Marizanne Kapp

If you ask me, England has many advantages. Home ground. Familiar with the pitch and weather conditions. Six-match winning streak. Excellent record against South Africa.

Will England continue on their victorious march to the finals? Or is there a chance that the South Africans could pull a rabbit out of the hat? Keep track of the scores. The live one and on your app.

Blog Time : Ashes to Ashes

If anything comes close to the eccentric hype that takes place during India-Pakistan series, it is the Ashes. That is not the only similarity. This tournament is just as personal. The phrase ‘let’s go to the mattresses’ is taken very seriously during this tournament. That is seen if you take a look at how the name came about in the very first place.

THE NAME The first match between the two teams - England and Australia - took place in Melbourne, Australia in 1877. The legend of the Ashes began in 1882, after the ninth test. Australia toured England. It was a brilliant match. A match that Australia won on the English Soil. A match they almost lost. Dead silence took over the stadium. They could not believe their team had just lost to a colony on home soil.


On 2 September a celebrated mock obituary, written by Reginald Shirley Brooks, appeared in The Sporting Times. It read: In Affectionate Remembrance of ENGLISH CRICKET, which died at the Oval on 29 August 1882, Deeply lamented by a large…

Editor’s Pick (Nidahas T20): India - Bangladesh

The tournament has reached a point that we all love. An exciting point where we still do not know who the finalists are. With just two matches to go and berth still wide open; the rest of the Nidahas tournament looks to be just as thrilling.
If India wins, India books a seat in the finals. If Bangladesh wins, the team takes the second place on the points table (or the first depending on the NRR) So while India should aim to win, an eye should be kept on the run rate at all times. Weather looks dicey as well. It might rain. D&L are prepared as well. Let’s also be. Picking a lineup at a rainy time is crucial. I would pick five batsmen to support a good score and a high run rate. With the batsmen of both teams playing rather well, you will have to pick carefully. Pick the more consistent ones. Bangladesh The team is on a high after the wins. The top five batsmen have clicked taking the team to a whole new level. The bowlers need to keep up with a more consistent line and length. India W…
