Editor's Pick (KPL): Hubli Tigers - Belagavi Panthers

Karnataka Premier League 2017

IPL. TNPL. Now we have the Karnataka Premier League on our app. This T20 league established by the Karnataka State Cricket Association hopped onto the bandwagon way back in 2009. Based on the same model as the IPL, the KPL have had five seasons so far. The sixth season begins on September 1st in Bangalore. There are seven teams who will be competing for the trophy - Belagavi Panthers, Bijapur Bulls, Mysuru Warriors, Bellary Tuskers, Namma Shivamogga, Hubli Tigers and Bengaluru Blasters.
The thing about these players is that they are all new to us. While with TNPL, there were a few players we were familiar with, KPL seems to be different here. Let’s get to know them well during this tournament. I shall do my best to give you as much details about them in the upcoming blogs.

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.

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…
