Editor’s Pick (PKL)

Haryana - Delhi

Zone A match - Dabang Delhi meets Haryana Steelers. Fourth and fifth on the table, these two teams are rather closely matched, with a difference of just one point. Will this match also be close? Let’s see
My lineup
AR: Meraj Sheykh
DF: Surendar Nada, Viraj Vishnu, Mohit Chhillar
RA: Vikash Khandola, Abolfazi M, Anand Patil

Amongst the allrounders, I really did not have much to pick from. Sheykh was my only option literally. The defenders on the other hand - there was Nilesh Shinde who scored 217 points on the app, and Sunil with 150. I have stepped out of my comfort zone and putting my trust in Anand Patil for this match. Let’s see what he has in him. The mass seems to pick Surjeet Singh. R Sriram is not a bad choice, I must say. My gut says Surjeet Singh.

UP - Tamil Nadu
The other match today - Zone B - UP Yoddha meets Tamil Thalaivas. The Tamil Nadu team is still at the bottom of the table. With eleven points to their credit, they are only one point less than the team above them - Telugu Titans.

My lineup
AR: Rajesh Narwal, D Pradap
DF: Amit Hooda, C Arun
RA: Mahesh Goud, Rishank Devadiga, Nitin Tomar.

This match has a better pool to pick from. There’s Sagar Krishna and Pankaj. Amit Hooda and C Arun are, to me, obvious picks. Ajay Thakur and Prapanjan K are the must-haves too. For some reason, I chose to ignore them this match and pick Mahesh Goud and Devadiga.

There are too many matches coming up to talk big picture now. What do you think about my choices this time?

Editor’s Pick: India - West Indies

First Match - Abandoned Second Match - India Beat West Indies by 105 runs. Third Match - India Beat West Indies by 93 runs. Fourth Match - Hmm… I don’t really want to talk about it.
Oh well.. Here goes. It was a rather embarrassing defeat. The series looked very much in the kitty when India had to chase 190 runs. The faithful Indian Fans probably even started celebrating. Even though the first three wickets fell rather early, Rahane stuck in there and hit 60 runs to pave what looked like a really short road to victory. And then came Dhoni. No one would have even considered the chance of a defeat. Not even a pessimist.
Time moved slowly after that. Or at least Dhoni did. He batted and batted and batted. Remember that time Sunny Gavaskar scored a 174-ball 36 runs? It was 1975 all over again. Dhoni’s innings were just as excruciatingly painful. It would have been worth it had India won of course. India fell short of the target and West Indies won by 11 runs. They were probably surprised t…

Need for co-ed sports

Now, this is hardly a feminist piece. I am not here to tell you that women can do anything that men can and better too. One, you know it too. Two, this is hardly about women. I am not here to praise women and demand better rights. I am talking about the possibility that the entire field of sports can take a whole new meaning if gender is not made the criterion. So this is how the idea for the blog started.
The Women’s Indian Cricket Team performed really well at the world cup this year. Mithali Raj praised her team for their hard work, persistence, and passion for the game. She also added that there should be an IPL tournament in the country for the women’s team now. Raj believes that the team’s fantastic game has increased the fan following for the women’s team as well and that they have earned their place here.
While I am honestly not sure about an IPL tournament for women, it did get me thinking. Why not mixed sports? Now that girls play almost all the games that the guys do, why n…
