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?

IPL 2014 - Mumbai Indians team analysis

The Mumbai Indians have always been the high-flying team of IPL.  They had the big buys in almost every year of IPL and kept a very high profile.  And over the last couple of years, they have started matching their performance with their profile – with wins in IPL 2013 and Champions League in 2011 and 2013.  Let us see how their team looks this year. Rohit Sharma, Mike Hussey, Ambati Rayudu and Apporv Wankhade are the pure play batsmen in the team. Corey Anderson, Keiron Pollard, Shreyas Gopal and Jalaj Saxena are the all rounders. CM Gautam, Ben Dunk, Sushant Marathe and Aditya Tare are the wicket keepers. Lasith Malinga, Zaheer Khan, Harbhajan Singh, Pragyan Ojha, Jasprit Bumrah, Josh Hazlewood, Marchant de Lange, Krishmar Santokie & Puwan Suyal are the bowlers.  The bowling looks pretty good with Malinga, Zaheer, Bajji and Ojha.   The batting is strong at the top – with Rohit Sharma and Mike Hussey, but looks weak beyond those two.   The power in the team comes from

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 contri

Fan Data Analytics: Key to drive sports company growth

Over the last several years, the buzz word in business and IT circles has been "big-data" and analytics. Many many articles and write-ups talk about them so I won't go into the details. You could get enough to last a lifetime with just the first few results of a Google search of these terms. But do you really know how it applies, specifically to a sports company? For long, sports franchises have been one of the biggest users of analytics. Before this was a buzz word, coaches and managers have relied up numbers and finding patterns in them to drive on-field performance. Indeed, the major leagues of the world have relied on performance analytics for everything from scouting for talent to calling the action on the field of play. But that never transcended to the off-field, more mundane but equally important task of managing the sports business. As more and more options come up vying for the fan's attention - live events, travel, other sports, TV, the Internet - the
