Editor's Pick(PKL): UP- Haryana


UP Yoddha - Squad strength: 18 (16 Indian, 2 Overseas)
Defenders – Jeeva Kumar, Hadi Tajik, Nitesh Kumar, Gurvinder Singh, Santosh BS, Rohit Kumar, Sanoj Kumar
Raiders – Rishank Devadiga, Sulieman Kabir, Nitin Tomar, Surendra Singh, Mahesh Goud, Ajvender Singh, Gulveer Singh
All Rounders – Rajesh Narwal, Pankaj, Sunil, Sagar B Krishna
Haryana Steelers - Squad strength: 22 (20 Indian, 2 Overseas)
Defenders – Mohit Chhillar, Neeraj Kumar, Vikash, Surender Nada, Mahender Singh Dhaka, Jeeva Gopal, Rakesh S. Kumar, Neeral Kumar, Babu M, Raju Lal Choudhary
Raiders – Sonu Narwal, Khomsan Thongkham, Deepak Kumar, Surjeet Singh, Prashant K Rai, Deepak Dahiya, Wazir Singh, Vikash Khandola, Ashish Chhokar
All Rounders –  David Mosambayi, Mayur Shivtarkar, Deepak Rathee, Parmod Narwal, Kuldeep Singh

Haryana Steelers with twelve points take on UP Yoddha who have scored 18 points so far. Nitin Tomar, the league’s most expensive player has proven his right to be on any team - the national as well as fantasy. Him, along with Rishank Devadiga, scored a total of 21 points together in their last match against U Mumbai. Which is a commendable feat. Pankaj also contributed. Hence all three are in my lineup along with Rajesh Narwal.
Surendar Nada shines in the Haryana Steelers team. So does Surjeet Singh.
This is who I want in my team.

AR: Pankaj, Rajesh Narwal
DF-Surendar Nada
RA - Rishank Devadiga, Nitin Tomar, Surjeet Singh, Vikash Khandola

Fantasy Sports in India - Growth and Future

Not Just Yet Another Western Import
Fantasy sports is already a huge phenomenon world over, particularly in the Western world, and is only growing. And an ecosystem is developing around it – from sports experts to technology providers to ordinary fans turned pundits. Industry estimates peg the overall market for Fantasy Sports in the US alone to be $4 Billion annually[1] and grew at a rate of 8.5%[2] annually between 2011-2016.
