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?

Fan Data Analytics: Key to drive sports company growth

Over the last several years, the buzz word in business and IT circles has been "big-data" and analytics. Many many articles and write-ups talk about them so I won't go into the details. You could get enough to last a lifetime with just the first few results of a Google search of these terms. But do you really know how it applies, specifically to a sports company? For long, sports franchises have been one of the biggest users of analytics. Before this was a buzz word, coaches and managers have relied up numbers and finding patterns in them to drive on-field performance. Indeed, the major leagues of the world have relied on performance analytics for everything from scouting for talent to calling the action on the field of play. But that never transcended to the off-field, more mundane but equally important task of managing the sports business. As more and more options come up vying for the fan's attention - live events, travel, other sports, TV, the Internet - the

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. The Women’s Indian Cricket Team performed really well at the world cup this year. Mithali Raj praised her team for their hard work, persistence, and passion for the game. 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, w

TNPL - A Brief Rundown

Based on the stupendously successful Indian Premier League is the Tamil Nadu Premier League. This Indian T20 cricket league has been established by the Tamil Nadu State Cricket Association to bring out more and more Natarajans and Washingtons who otherwise do not get a chance to showcase their skill and talent in the world of Cricket.

There was a brilliant batch of young men who came forward and made an event out of the first season of TNPL.
