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?

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  MA Chitambaram Stadium, Chennai  Changes 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 pr

Editor’s Pick(PKL)

Four more days of Kabaddi, a teeny break and the next round commences on October 23rd. The super playoffs. All this hard work only for that. A look at the point table will give you an idea about who COULD go to the next level. Course anything could happen in the last minute. Anyone could topple. You remember the havoc Bangladesh created during the Champions Trophy. They threw out the big guns. I mean, they probably stopped West Indies from qualifying too, come to think of it. Back to Kabaddi. Zone A is still topped by Gujarat followed by Haryana and Pune. The other three teams - Mumbai, Jaipur and Delhi. Zone B, Bengal take the lead followed by Patna and UP. Today’s match-UP meets Bengaluru. UP is third and are doing very good for themselves. Bengaluru, fifth on the table, don’t really look like they have a chance. Only thing they do want to do now is walk out with a smile saying yes, we tried. UP Yoddha - Squad strength: 18 (16 Indian, 2 Overseas) Defenders – Jeeva Kumar, Ha

From all of us Fans to Players & Officials: Please don't treat us with kid gloves

As any fan will tell you, we not just love, but understand the sport and our teams like no one else. And that’s also why they keep bankrolling the big fat salaries of the players, the profits of the clubs and the boondoggle of officials. The recently concluded test match raised, in my mind, three instances where the thought process seems to be – it is OK for us to handle it, but it is too hot for fans . Common, now, please don’t treat us with kid gloves. One: The first one, inevitably, is about the DRS and taking the dugouts inputs in it. The rules are clear – the decision to ask for a decision review stays with the players on the field. Within a few seconds of the umpires’ decision, the batting team can dispute an out decision or the bowling team can dispute a not-out decision, without consulting with anyone outside the playing field. The controversy of Smith’s ‘brain-fade’ and Kohli’s allegations have played out ad nauseam on TV and cyberspace, so I will spare you that
