Taking place at Providence Stadium, Guyana, this venue has a high total of 191 and lowest of 68. The Warriors have won only one match out of four. Jamaica Tallawahs on the other hand are doing well with three wins from four matches. Both teams have enough stars to make a big difference to the team. The ones I think will shine are in my lineup.
Who’s on yours?

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.

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…
