Editor’s Pick(PKL)

Team Gujarat still have all the fortunes as they stay on top of the table with a mammoth 36 points. Bengaluru Bulls come close with 21 points. The Fortune Giants do not have to worry as of now. Puneri Paltan are second in Zone A with 16 points. This is a Zone A match. With the playoffs on October 22nd, the teams have many matches to play.

Lets see my lineup for this match. Gujarat meets Pune.

AR: Sandeep Narwal, Rohit Gulia, Deepak Hooda
DF: Parvesh Bhainswal, Dharmaraj Cheralathan
RA: Sachin, Sukesh Hegde

If you look at the points scored on the app, Hegde has 299 to his credit. You can include Rajesh Mondal on your team if you’d like. He has the potential too. Amongst the defenders, I have picked Parvesh. He has 175 points. Fazel has 206. But I did not have enough to add him to my lineup.Dharmaraj is a must. Even though his selection percentage is only 20, I think he can make a difference. Coming to the All-Rounders, I have Hooda on my team. Sandeep Narwal, you can add without even thinking.

Coming to the other match between UP and Bengal. Zone B Match. UP Yoddha are second with 19 points. They take on Bengal Warriors who have won 14 points so far.
My lineup - UP Yoddha meets Bengal Warriors

AR: Ran Singh
DF: Nitish Kumar
RA: Maninder Singh, Rishank Devadiga, Jang Kun Lee, Nitin Tomar, Deepak Narwal

There are quite a few players who have scored more than 100 points on the app - Vinkumar, Surendar Singh, Vinoth Kumar, Mahesh Goud. And then there are players who have scored close to 300. I have selected them on the app.
The thing about this tournament is that as the number of matches played increases, the players who have scored and played very well automatically stand out. Fairly easier to pick the lineup.

What do you think?

Olympic Coverage

What does Olympics mean for you?
I have watched the last couple of Olympics in NBC in the US.The coverage was all US (understandable, though irritating) and it was all about the US players.Where they come from, their trials and tribulations, their sacrifices, the heartaches, the dizzying success, their work ethic – everything added to the narrative for me.It was always the personal story that got me and kept me tuning in and watching all kinds of sports.
This time, I am watching it in India.There is a lot more coverage of events that India is not participating in (understandable – India does not participate in much J) and so the event is truly international.But there are NO stories.  This is just one event after another without pausing to cover the players involved at all.   I cannot distinguish one athlete from the other.I can’t pick favourites, because I do not know much about anyone.Given this, I am unable to watch a lot of sports that I do not necessarily care about.
Give me NBC any …

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

The ODI series of three matches was really fun. Close finish. Big numbers on the board. There are gonna be more people expecting more excitement from the T20 matches that begin tomorrow - 1st November 2017.And why not?

A little bit of trivia. Did you know that the first T20 match was played on June 13th, 2003? Introduced in England and Wales, it was played between the two English Countries. The first international match was played by women. Yup you read that right. England and New Zealand Women. By men later in 2005. India’s first ICC World T20 was in 2016. Fun facts - Pakistan is the first and only team to have played 100 T20 international cricket matches. Wonder how that happened. India has played 72 and won 44 of them. Most sixes in an innings is by Netherlands. Yup that’s right. Virat Kohli holds the record of most runs in a calendar year with 536 runs in 11 innings. This happened in 2016. He also holds the record for most fifties in his career. Yay Kohli.

Coming to tomorrow’s mat…

Editor’s Pick(ODI): South Africa - Bangladesh

The first ODI was a thumping success for South Africa as they crush Bangladesh by ten wickets. Now I rarely use the word thumping because it is such a cliched word but sometimes such words are the need of the day. Quinton’s 168 and Amla’s 110 was all the team needed to cruise to a very obvious victory. South Africa take the lead 1-0 in the three match series. If Bangladesh come back like the phoenix of the ashes and show the South Africans what they got, we have a wonderful series on our hands. Else it is just another day of cricket and the favourites win. I like to bet on the underdogs. I love to watch them fight back and surprise the audience. Let’s see South Africa
Faf du Plessis(c), Hashim Amla, Temba Bavuma, Farhaan Behardien, Quinton de Kock, AB de Villiers, Jean-Paul Duminy, Imran Tahir, David Miller, Dane Paterson, Willem Mulder, Andile Phehlukwayo, Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada
