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?

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…

Editor’s Pick (Nidahas T20): India - Bangladesh

The tournament has reached a point that we all love. An exciting point where we still do not know who the finalists are. With just two matches to go and berth still wide open; the rest of the Nidahas tournament looks to be just as thrilling.
If India wins, India books a seat in the finals. If Bangladesh wins, the team takes the second place on the points table (or the first depending on the NRR) So while India should aim to win, an eye should be kept on the run rate at all times. Weather looks dicey as well. It might rain. D&L are prepared as well. Let’s also be. Picking a lineup at a rainy time is crucial. I would pick five batsmen to support a good score and a high run rate. With the batsmen of both teams playing rather well, you will have to pick carefully. Pick the more consistent ones. Bangladesh The team is on a high after the wins. The top five batsmen have clicked taking the team to a whole new level. The bowlers need to keep up with a more consistent line and length. India W…
