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.

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

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.…

Editors Pick ( PKL)

Not much cricket happening for the next two days. More time for Kabaddi now. We are in the month of October. Closer to the next round. The status of the teams on the Pro Kabaddi table matter big time now. It is time for the teams to keep an eye on their ranks all the time now. No pressure :)

Let’s take a look at the table. The top three teams in each zone make it to the next level. The points were very close at one point and then apart. Some teams have been super consistent doing well and others, consistently at the bottom of the table. Team A has four teams who are fighting for the next level big time - Gujarat Fortune Giants, Haryana Steelers, Puneri Paltan and U Mumba. Jaipur Pink Panthers and Dabang Delhi are closer to the bottom and will have to do really really well to make a difference. Zone B - the bottom two teams - Bengaluru Bulls and Tamil Thalaivas are not looking too hot. The top four teams are Patna Pirates, Bengal Warriors, U.P.Yoddha and Telugu Titans.

In a crux, any o…

Editor’s Pick (Women’s Cricket): India - West Indies

India, fourth on the table, has won her first game while West Indies lost. India has a lot to prove for her country. That She deserves as much love and support as the men in blue. Sad that She has to, but circumstances demand it. West Indies on the other hand are looking for a win to kick start their journey to the final.
It is a win-win situation for both the teams. But then, I want my fantasy lineup to win too. So, for this lineup, I have looked up not only the selection percentage generated by fans’ choice, but also the players’ performance in this tournament so far.
My Team 
-Chedean Nation -Mithali Raj -Smriti Mandhana -Punam Raut -Ekta Bisht -Shakera Salman -Shamilia Connel -Poonam Yadav -Meriss Aguilleira -Deepti Sharma -Harmanpreet kaur Let’s hope this clicks. Will you agree with it? Let’s hear some opinions shall we?
