Editor’s Pick(Women’s Cricket): South Africa - Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is yet to register a win. They have five losses from five matches. South Africa is doing rather well, in comparison, with three wins and one NR out of five matches. With seven points on the board and a Net Run Rate of +1.4570, they might not even see Sri Lanka as a threat in their run for the cup.

Having said that, both teams will want to give it their all in this match.

My lineup

Batsmen
Dilani Manodara
Hasini Perera
Mignon Du Preez
Laura Wolvaardt
Nipuni Hansika
Lizelle Lee

Bowlers
Inoka Ranaweera
Moseline Daniels
Sripali Weerakkody

Wicket-Keeper
Prasadani Weerakkodi

All-Rounder
Marizanne Kapp

I had a little trouble with this lineup, surprisingly. There are few good players I had to leave out. Like Shabnim Ismail, Chandima Gunaratne and Chamari Atapattu. Dane Van Niekerk also has good potential.

I had pinned hopes on Ama Kanchana but she was not consistent.

Tell me what you think

Pakistan The players are in form. They are the favourites against what seems to be an inexperienced West Indies side. Pakistan as a cricket loving country is looking to have games as part of its normal routine now …

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.

Fantasy Sports in India has picked up significantly over the past few years, coinciding with the rise of franchise sports, particularly cricket and IPL.
