Taking place in the exotic location, this tournament is getting popular by the year. There are many leagues like the Indian Premier League. While IPL is THE most well-known of them all, CPL is not too far away. Caribbean Premier League is the West Indian version of a T20 league. Twenty-twenty cricket matches have become the more action oriented version of cricket. It is more aggressive and there is never any shortage of any excitement.

The table as of now shows Trinbago Knight Riders on top with two wins from three matches. With a high run rate of +2.020,they are doing really well. Did you know that this team is co-owned by Red Chillies Entertainment?

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.…

IPL So Far II

27th April 2017

IPL so far

The tournament is halfway through. There have been some brilliant performances and some worth forgetting. The T20 fever has gripped the country with intensity. Come evening, and cricket fans sit in front of the television, with the phone in their hands. This is to follow not just the men on the fields but also their very own fantasy team that they have created on the Fantain App.
Let’s have a look at how the eight teams have played so far. Going in the order of points on the table

Editor's Pick (T20): India - New Zealand

Here we are. The third and final match of the T20 series. The match between India and New Zealand that decides the fate of the tournament. This is because India won the first match and New Zealand, the second. If you look at the previous match fantasy lineup, there were two players on the fantain app who won the top points. Rakesh Saini and Tadipaar. Their lineup Colin Munro Virat Kohli Trent Boult MS Dhoni Martin Guptill Ish Sodhi Y Chahal Kane Williamson Bhuvneshwar Kumar Rohit Sharma Shikhar Dhawan

The thing is that while I would love to take the same lineup, there is no guarantee that this could be the winner. It is a fab lineup though. Batsmen Virat Kohli Martin Guptill Shikhar Dhawan Rohit Sharma Bowlers Jasprit Bumrah Ish Sodhi Trent Boult Bhuvneshwar Kumar All-Rounders Mitchell Santner
