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

Peshawar Zalmi vs Multan Sultans - Post Match Blog.

The bigger they are, the harder they fall. Ain't it true. Newcomers Sultans thrash Peshawar Zalmi by 7 wickets in PSL 2018 opener sending shockwaves through the league. Being a defending champion did take a toll on Peshawar Zalmi. Not easy walking into a tournament with everyone looking at you assuming you will win.


When the Sultans came in to bat, they had an early upset when they lost the opener for a duck. With a target of 152, it took the experienced Kumara Sangakkara to set the ship on course towards the target. He was calm and composed as he has been throughout his international career. Singles and doubles. And planned boundaries. By the time he was out, caught behind, the team was fairly stable. Shoaib Malik’s captain knock along with Kieron Pollard finished the match in style.
Earlier in the day, Peshawar Zalmi came in to bat. Apart from Mohammad Hafeez’s 59, with twenty-something runs from Dwayne Smith and Darren Sammy; the rest of the batsmen barely contributed. Like I s…

India-NZ. As it happened.

And the series is leveled. Well. We saw the ODI series level. The third and final match was more than a blast. Despite having a ton of runs on the scoreboard, the match and the series could have gone either way. That was the best part of it. Course it was a world of entertainment for all cricket fans. Honestly even a third party not emotionally vested in the two teams could watch and appreciate the demonstration of fine cricket. Now the T20 series is looking the same way. India won the first match and NZ came back strong and hard in the second match. The match deciding the fate of the tournament is on 7th November. Boy are we interested or what. Let’s see what happened in the second match now.

New Zealand won the toss and decided to bat. A supreme not out 58 ball 109 runs by Colin Munro took New Zealand to the path of destruction. I mean look at the strike rate - 187.93. That is a mind blowing number. The other batsmen didn’t do that bad either. Martin Guptil’s 45 runs from 41 deliver…
