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.

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.
