Editor’s Pick (ODI): India - Sri Lanka

India’s tour of Sri Lanka is nothing short of a thumping success. They won the test series, bagging all three matches. Now, they have won the first ODI, by nine wickets nevertheless. The target was a modest 217. India had 50 overs to play and reached the target with a mammoth twenty odd overs to spare. That is really saying something. Dhawan slammed 132, having been dropped twice. That’s something the Sri Lankans only have themselves to blame for. Axar Patel took three wickets. The performance in the first ODI as well as the test match has been wholesome and satisfying.

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.
