Editor’s Pick(PKL): Pune - Jaipur

Puneri Paltan - Squad strength: 15 (13 Indian, 2 Overseas)
Defenders – Dharamraj Cheralathan, Girish Ernak, Md. Ziaur Rehman
Raiders –  Rajesh Mondal, Rohit Kumar Choudary, Umesh Mhatre, Akshay Jadhav, More GB, Suresh Kumar, Deepak Niwas Hooda
All Rounders – Takamitsu Kono, Sandeep Narwal, Ravi Kumar, Ajay, Narender Hooda
Jaipur Pink Panthers - Squad strength: 19 (17 Indian, 2 Overseas)
Defenders – Jae Min Lee, Manoj Dhull, Navneet Gautam, Somvir Shekhar, Vignesh B, Ravinder Kumar
Raiders – Jasvir Singh, Selvamani K, Ajit Singh, Kamal Kishor, Pawan Kumar Kadian, Tushar Patil, Sunil Siddhgavali, Rahul Choudhary
All Rounders –  Manjeet Chhillar, Dong Gyu Kim, Santhapanaselvam, Siddharth, Abhishek N.

This lineup, most of the players I wanted were from Pune. As per the rules, only four players per team allowed. My initial lineup had Deepak Hooda, Manjeet Chhillar, Girish Maruti, Ravi Kumar, More GB and Pawan Kumar. That’s six. I would like Rajesh Mondal or Dharmaraj Cheralathan on my team. While I have the balance to suit either, like I said, only four Pune members are allowed on the Fantain Fantasy Lineup.

Jasvir Singh would be my next option from Jaipur. He was the ‘Sahi Hai Player’ and deserves to be on the lineup. But I have a balance of 15 and he will cost me 16. That seems to be ruled out as well. Hence, Somvir Shekhar is in. Jaipur’s defence unit is truly commendable though.

AR: Mamjeet Chhillar, Deepak Hooda
DF: Somvir Shekhar, Ravi Kumar, Girish Maruti
RA: Pawan Kumar, More GB

If you can add Jasvir Singh to your team, nothing like it.

India-NZ. As it happened.

And the series is leveled. Well. We saw the ODI series level. The third and final match was more than a blast. Despite having a ton of runs on the scoreboard, the match and the series could have gone either way. That was the best part of it. Course it was a world of entertainment for all cricket fans. Honestly even a third party not emotionally vested in the two teams could watch and appreciate the demonstration of fine cricket. Now the T20 series is looking the same way. India won the first match and NZ came back strong and hard in the second match. The match deciding the fate of the tournament is on 7th November. Boy are we interested or what. Let’s see what happened in the second match now.

New Zealand won the toss and decided to bat. A supreme not out 58 ball 109 runs by Colin Munro took New Zealand to the path of destruction. I mean look at the strike rate - 187.93. That is a mind blowing number. The other batsmen didn’t do that bad either. Martin Guptil’s 45 runs from 41 deliver…

Peshawar Zalmi vs Multan Sultans - Post Match Blog.

The bigger they are, the harder they fall. Ain't it true. Newcomers Sultans thrash Peshawar Zalmi by 7 wickets in PSL 2018 opener sending shockwaves through the league. Being a defending champion did take a toll on Peshawar Zalmi. Not easy walking into a tournament with everyone looking at you assuming you will win.


When the Sultans came in to bat, they had an early upset when they lost the opener for a duck. With a target of 152, it took the experienced Kumara Sangakkara to set the ship on course towards the target. He was calm and composed as he has been throughout his international career. Singles and doubles. And planned boundaries. By the time he was out, caught behind, the team was fairly stable. Shoaib Malik’s captain knock along with Kieron Pollard finished the match in style.
Earlier in the day, Peshawar Zalmi came in to bat. Apart from Mohammad Hafeez’s 59, with twenty-something runs from Dwayne Smith and Darren Sammy; the rest of the batsmen barely contributed. Like I s…
