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.

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

Editor’s Pick (Nidahas T20): India - Sri Lanka

The table is currently in a very surprising situation. Most expected Sri Lanka to show Bangladesh the door. But here they are still standing up and shining. The tournament is wide open. Today’s match is between India and Sri Lanka. The stakes are much higher now that Bangladesh is more feared than before. The teams would not want to risk anything at this point. Earlier I had said that they might experiment with the lineup and give everyone a chance. Now it will be more than giving people a chance. They will strategize. The Indian team will be open to experimentation, but not at the cost of results.

The untested ones are Deepak Hooda, KL Rahul, and Axar Patel. India has lost to Sri Lanka in their first encounter of this tournament. They will want to be wary because another defeat could cost them the tournament itself. So, not all the new players will see the light today.
A lot depends on Rohit Sharma today. Shikhar Dhawan, Suresh Raina, Manish Pandey and Dinesh Karthik will chip in too.…

Chennai beats Mumbai and clinch thriller

It is not just about coming back. It is about the impact you make in the process. And Chennai team knows how to with a bang.  The Chennai team beat the home team by one wicket in what was an absolute sit-at-the-end-of-the-chair thriller. It was one of the best chases the tournament has seen and it most definitely won't be the last. The player who made the difference in the end - Jadhav - literally came back from the dead after retiring hurt to take his team to the finish line by hitting the ball in style with a six and a four.  Batting on one leg and playing an absolutely unbelievable shot, this player leveled the scores first with a six and finished the match with a four. 
Key Points  MI has never won their opener since 2013.This was Chennai's first win against MI in an opener of this T20 League DRS used in the league for the first time Bravo: It was a great team effort. I want to dedicate this win to the CSK fan, they have waited long for it. I came very early. I …
