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 (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.…

Chennai beats Mumbai and clinch thriller

It is not just about coming back. It is about the impact you make in the process. And Chennai team knows how to with a bang.  The Chennai team beat the home team by one wicket in what was an absolute sit-at-the-end-of-the-chair thriller. It was one of the best chases the tournament has seen and it most definitely won't be the last. The player who made the difference in the end - Jadhav - literally came back from the dead after retiring hurt to take his team to the finish line by hitting the ball in style with a six and a four.  Batting on one leg and playing an absolutely unbelievable shot, this player leveled the scores first with a six and finished the match with a four. 
Key Points  MI has never won their opener since 2013.This was Chennai's first win against MI in an opener of this T20 League DRS used in the league for the first time Bravo: It was a great team effort. I want to dedicate this win to the CSK fan, they have waited long for it. I came very early. I …
