Editor’s Pick(Women’s Cricket): New Zealand - Pakistan

All the teams have played four matches as of today. Australia is on top now with four wins from four matches. With an excellent run rate of +1.3530, they have shown why are on top with their performance so far. Second on the table is India with four out of four wins too, but a lower run rate of +0.9140.

England is third with three wins from four matches. New Zealand and South Africa have two wins. Sri Lanka, Pakistan and West Indies are yet to open their score account.

New Zealand meet Pakistan. A NZ win could put them third on the table.

That’s enough preamble for now. Here’s my lineup.

Batsmen
Ayesha Zafar
Nahida Khan
Katie Perkins
Javeria Khan
Amy Satterthwaite

Bowlers
Holly Huddleston
Leigh Kasperek
Lea Tahuhu
Nashra Sandhu

WK
Rachel Priest
Sidra Nawaz

I would love to have Sana Mir and Suzie Bates on my list. My alternate lineup is based on the players’ recent performance

WK
-Rachel Priest

AR
-Suzie Bates
-Sana Mir

Bowlers
-Leigh Kasperek
-Holly Huddleston
-Lea Tahuhu
-Sadia Yousuf

Batsmen
-Nahida Khan
-Javeria Khan
-Katie Perkins
-Ayesha Zafar

Both Sana Mir and Suzie Bates cost 11. It is a tough choice. I removed Amy and added Katie and Ayesha, cos I was running out of points.

What do you think?

Key Players: India - England

When there is nothing left, you will play for pride. That is what India has to do tomorrow. Considering the fact that the match is taking place in Mumbai. Do it for them. Do it for us.  England and Australia will meet each other at the finals on 31st March. India and England are more than likely to go in with the same playing eleven.
India Terribly low on morale, the team will now have to give it their all. They need to know that they are much better than this.
Key players Smriti Mandhana H Kaur Jhulan Goswami J Rodrigues Pooja Vastrakar
England The team has been doing really well since day one. They will now consider this as a practice match. But they will want to win and go to the finals with confidence. They were thumped by Australia earlier in what can be called as a one-sided game. They want to win this tomorrow.

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…
