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

The Finals are finally here. It has been a really exciting tournament with the talents of many players seeing the light of day.
Head to head count between these two matches shows that in the past five matches, the Patriots have always been the better team and have won consistently. Chepauk Super Gillies will want that to change and make sure that history doesn't repeat itself yet again. Some matches have been fairly one-sided as well. The finals on September 18th, 2006 saw the Patriots hit 215 runs with the Super Gillies managing only 93. It is hard to tell if it is the pressure of the finals but I am sure they are working on it this time. They met the Patriots at Qualifier 1 and lost, yet again. Gillies hit 114 and in reply, the Patriots had no trouble hitting 118 runs in just 12.3 overs. The Patriots clearly want to defend their title and in style. They not only want to win but want to dominate the finals.

Tuti Patriots are on a roll. They would not want to change the winning combination, would they? When it has worked so well for them.  
Teams:
Chepauk Super Gillies (From): Gopinath, Thalaivan Sargunam, S Karthik(w), Rajagopal Sathish(c), Ravisrinivasan Sai Kishore, Antony Dhas, Sathiamoorty Saravanan, Yo Mahesh, R Alexander, Arun Kumar, Uthirasamy Sasidev, Joel Joseph, Dakshinamoorthy Kumaran, Baskaran Rahul, Ashwath Mukumthan, Aditya Barooah, Jothimani Gowjith Subhash, Rangaraj Suthesh, S Radhakrishnan

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. It is only estimated to maintain and improve that trajectory of growth in the next 5 years.
Fantasy Sports in India has picked up significantly over the past few years, coinciding with the rise of franchise sports, particularly cricket and IPL. There are a number of providers that have launched their fantasy sports platforms and in many instances, more or less mimicked the offerings of their Western counterparts. These organisations have been claiming steady growth to their user base and winnings in the last two-three years, but somehow their numbers haven’t y…
