Editor’s Pick(TNPL): Chepauk Super Gillies - Tuti Patriots

Defending champions are still on top. Tuti Patriots have shown why the deserve to win the cup again this year. Chepauk Super Gillies play their third match today. They have also won all the matches they have played (2). It will be interesting to see which team faces their first loss of this season. Point to be noted - these two teams were the finalists of season one of TNPL. The Gillies lost to the Patriots then and will want payback. The winner of this match will top the table. Lots to gain from this match.
Gopinath is in good form. The other opener, Sargunam, is reliable too. Captain Rajagopal leads from the front with his brilliant attack with the ball. If he can pull some runs off the bat, the team will definitely win this season. The Chennai team is not likely to change its winning combo.
The Patriots on the other hand also come in with overflowing confidence. They have their share of ammunitions - Washington Sundar, K Gandhi and Captain Anand. Aushik Srinivas has proven his potential.

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…

Royal Challengers Bangalore - IPL 2014 team analysis

Here is a look at the RCB team for the 2014 IPL edition - and my take on it. Chris Gayle, Virat Kohli, AB DeVilliers, Yuvraj Singh, Nic Maddinson, Vijay Zol are the batsmen in the teamMitchell Starc, Varun Aaron, Ashok Dinda, Muthiah Muralidharan, Ravi Rampaul,  Harshal Patel,  Abu Nechim,  Shahab Jakati,  Sandeep Warrior, Yuzvendra Chahal are the bowlersAlbie Morkel, Sachin Rana, Tanmay Mishra are the allroundersParthiv Patel and Yogesh Takawale are the wicket keepers

The strategy behind this team selection was very confusion at first.But on careful analysis, I believe this might turn out to be one of the stronger teams in this year’s IPL.
The team has a tremendous batting line up with Gayle, AB, Virat and Yuvaraj.Throw in the big hitting Albie Morkel – this team will post huge scores, especially in good batting conditions – and win many matches just on the back of batting.In the bowling department, the team seems to have preferred the quick bowlers – all of them seem to be bowlers who…

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, why n…
