Editor's Pick (Test) England - West Indies

England and West Indies series join our fantasy now. Currently, England leads the series by one match. The first test took place on August 17th where England hit 514 runs and then declared. They knew they did not need more than that to defeat the West Indies. They were right. And more. When West Indies came in to bat, they lost all their wickets and hit only 137 runs. England realized there was no need to bat again and sent West Indies back in. England won by an innings and 209 runs.

The West Indies now have a lot of thinking to do before they go into the second test match. The changes that have been happening on the team are fairly radical and not to mention, dramatic. This is what Dwayne Bravo had to say earlier - “One minute we have to be available for domestic super 50 to be selected and the next minute, it seems we don't. Magic! Get serious people!” The selectors seem to be going back on their earlier decisions and bringing back the big guns. Some things are still trial and error methods, I guess.
West Indies missed the cut and could not appear in the Champions Trophy that took place earlier this year. This probably was the wake-up call for the selectors to go back to old school and do things the tried and tested way. Bring back experience. Refer http://blog.fantain.com/2017/08/old-is-gold.html for my opinion on this.
So, Chris Gayle and Marlon Samuels are being called for the five match ODI series against England.

England is doing some soul searching as well. And rightly so. No need for taking anything for granted. They have to decide three batsmen who are consistent and reliable. The Ashes tour is just around the corner.

So, the lineup for the second test.

Blog Time: I won in Fantain 2.0. And I didn’t shell out a penny.

I won. This is a big deal for me. I have never won any money on any online competition or game ever. Until now. When I heard Fantain Fantasy Sports was coming up with a new version of the game - the paid version, I thought, “I have only managed to win a few coupons here and there. Wonder how much money will I have to pay?”

And I saw that they were issuing FanCash. Does that mean no money to be deposited at my end? That’s right. I applied the code that I saw on their FaceBook page and used it in my updated app. And voila. My credit went up by 25. I went through all the games that were showing up on my page. I did my research on the players and created various lineups. The process was just as simple as it was before. I submitted my lineup in various matches, playing both free and the paid pools.

I was eagerly waiting for my results. And I tell you, the wait is just as exciting. I had won every paid match that I played in. The beautiful words “Congratulations, you have won” in a nice gr…
