Editor’s Pick(CPL): Trinbago Knight Riders - Guyana Amazon Warriors

The previous match - St Lucia Stars vs Barbados Tridents - Barbados Tridents won by 21 runs. DLS method. BT hit 194 runs in 20 overs. STS could manage only 129 in 15.2. Pollard was declared man of the match for his magnificent innings of 83 runs off 35 deliveries. Once the bigger rain covers were brought in, it was only a matter of time that the DLS method would be adopted. Sammy was disappointed. He wanted to fight till the end.

The next match is between Trinbago Knight Riders - Guyana Amazon Warriors . Venue - Queen's Park Oval, Port of Spain, Trinidad
Teams:
Guyana Amazon Warriors (From): Chadwick Walton(w), Steven Taylor, Babar Azam, Jason Mohammed, Gajanand Singh, Keemo Paul, Rayad Emrit(c), Sohail Tanvir, Veerasammy Permaul, Rashid Khan, Steven Jacobs, S Katwaroo, Ali Khan, Shimron Hetmyer, Keon Joseph, Assad Fudadin, Roshon Primus, Martin Guptill
Trinbago Knight Riders (From): Brendon McCullum, Sunil Narine, Colin Munro, Denesh Ramdin(w), Darren Bravo, Dwayne Bravo(c), Shadab Khan, Javon Searles, Kevon Cooper, Ronsford Beaton, Khary Pierre, Mehedi Hasan, Robert Frylinck, William Perkins, Hamza Tariq, Anderson Phillip, Nikita Miller, Hashim Amla

There are some young players, and then some experienced ones. Amla is one of them. And Brendon McCullum. I tend to have faith in them.

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.
Oh well.. Here goes. It was a rather embarrassing defeat. The series looked very much in the kitty when India had to chase 190 runs. The faithful Indian Fans probably even started celebrating. Even though the first three wickets fell rather early, Rahane stuck in there and hit 60 runs to pave what looked like a really short road to victory. And then came Dhoni. No one would have even considered the chance of a defeat. Not even a pessimist.
Time moved slowly after that. Or at least Dhoni did. He batted and batted and batted. Remember that time Sunny Gavaskar scored a 174-ball 36 runs? It was 1975 all over again. Dhoni’s innings were just as excruciatingly painful. It would have been worth it had India won of course. India fell short of the target and West Indies won by 11 runs. They were probably surprised t…

Need for co-ed sports

Now, this is hardly a feminist piece. I am not here to tell you that women can do anything that men can and better too. One, you know it too. Two, this is hardly about women. I am not here to praise women and demand better rights. I am talking about the possibility that the entire field of sports can take a whole new meaning if gender is not made the criterion. So this is how the idea for the blog started.

She also added that there should be an IPL tournament in the country for the women’s team now. 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…
