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

India has been totally dominating this tournament. Three out of three tests, two ODIs played and both won. The second match saw India win by D/L method. There was a lot of tension in the match despite it not being a high scoring one. Sri Lanka scored 231. India made it. With a lot of drama of course. Fernando was brought in at the 45th over. He managed two legal deliveries and then a wide that handed India her three-wicket victory. Out of the nine Indian batsmen, five of them didn’t even cross ten. Will that be a point of concern? Akila Dananjaya took six wickets. He looks like a good man on your team. I picked him.

This is the third ODI coming up. India is on top of their game and might possibly be open to experimenting and bringing in fresh talent. If you were the captain, who would you pick?

My lineup
Batsmen
VIrat Kohli
Kusal Mendis
Shikhar Dhawan
Lokesh Rahul
Ajinkya Rahane
Bowlers
Jasprit Bumrah
Malinda Pushpaku
Akila Dananjaya
Wicket-Keeper
N Dickwella
MS Dhoni
All-Rounder
Hardik Pandya

Sri Lanka now plays for her pride. It will be a high-tension match.

Editor’s Pick (Nidahas T20): India - Sri Lanka

The table is currently in a very surprising situation. Most expected Sri Lanka to show Bangladesh the door. But here they are still standing up and shining. The tournament is wide open. Today’s match is between India and Sri Lanka. The stakes are much higher now that Bangladesh is more feared than before. The teams would not want to risk anything at this point. Earlier I had said that they might experiment with the lineup and give everyone a chance. Now it will be more than giving people a chance. They will strategize. The Indian team will be open to experimentation, but not at the cost of results.

The untested ones are Deepak Hooda, KL Rahul, and Axar Patel. India has lost to Sri Lanka in their first encounter of this tournament. They will want to be wary because another defeat could cost them the tournament itself. So, not all the new players will see the light today.
A lot depends on Rohit Sharma today. Shikhar Dhawan, Suresh Raina, Manish Pandey and Dinesh Karthik will chip in too.…

IPL So Far II

27th April 2017

IPL so far

The tournament is halfway through. There have been some brilliant performances and some worth forgetting. The T20 fever has gripped the country with intensity. Come evening, and cricket fans sit in front of the television, with the phone in their hands. This is to follow not just the men on the fields but also their very own fantasy team that they have created on the Fantain App.
Let’s have a look at how the eight teams have played so far. Going in the order of points on the table

Editor's Pick (T20): India - New Zealand

Here we are. The third and final match of the T20 series. The match between India and New Zealand that decides the fate of the tournament. This is because India won the first match and New Zealand, the second. If you look at the previous match fantasy lineup, there were two players on the fantain app who won the top points. Rakesh Saini and Tadipaar. Their lineup Colin Munro Virat Kohli Trent Boult MS Dhoni Martin Guptill Ish Sodhi Y Chahal Kane Williamson Bhuvneshwar Kumar Rohit Sharma Shikhar Dhawan

The thing is that while I would love to take the same lineup, there is no guarantee that this could be the winner. It is a fab lineup though. Batsmen Virat Kohli Martin Guptill Shikhar Dhawan Rohit Sharma Bowlers Jasprit Bumrah Ish Sodhi Trent Boult Bhuvneshwar Kumar All-Rounders Mitchell Santner
