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

Olympic Coverage

What does Olympics mean for you?
I have watched the last couple of Olympics in NBC in the US.The coverage was all US (understandable, though irritating) and it was all about the US players.Where they come from, their trials and tribulations, their sacrifices, the heartaches, the dizzying success, their work ethic – everything added to the narrative for me.It was always the personal story that got me and kept me tuning in and watching all kinds of sports.
This time, I am watching it in India.There is a lot more coverage of events that India is not participating in (understandable – India does not participate in much J) and so the event is truly international.But there are NO stories.  This is just one event after another without pausing to cover the players involved at all.   I cannot distinguish one athlete from the other.I can’t pick favourites, because I do not know much about anyone.Given this, I am unable to watch a lot of sports that I do not necessarily care about.
Give me NBC any …

Editor's Pick (T20): India - New Zealand

The ODI series of three matches was really fun. Close finish. Big numbers on the board. There are gonna be more people expecting more excitement from the T20 matches that begin tomorrow - 1st November 2017.And why not?

A little bit of trivia. Did you know that the first T20 match was played on June 13th, 2003? Introduced in England and Wales, it was played between the two English Countries. The first international match was played by women. Yup you read that right. England and New Zealand Women. By men later in 2005. India’s first ICC World T20 was in 2016. Fun facts - Pakistan is the first and only team to have played 100 T20 international cricket matches. Wonder how that happened. India has played 72 and won 44 of them. Most sixes in an innings is by Netherlands. Yup that’s right. Virat Kohli holds the record of most runs in a calendar year with 536 runs in 11 innings. This happened in 2016. He also holds the record for most fifties in his career. Yay Kohli.

Coming to tomorrow’s mat…

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

A young and relatively inexperienced team, the players are full of enthu and raring to go as they face Sri Lanka at home tomorrow for their first T20 match of the Nidahas Trophy. I’ll tell you one thing. India is full of confidence. The boys have beaten the lions before in their own den. Not just beaten but a brutal defeat the Lions faced. Team Sri Lanka, on the other hand, will not take this team lightly. Yes, they are young. Yes, many players are playing for the country for the very first time. But that does not make the players any less lethal or skilled. In fact, the young players are likely to be passionate and aggressive from the word go.
India squad: Rohit Sharma(c), Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul, Suresh Raina, Manish Pandey, Dinesh Karthik, Deepak Hooda, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Vijay Shankar, Shardul Thakur, Jaydev Unadkat, Mohammed Siraj, Rishabh Pant Sri Lanka squad: Dinesh Chandimal(c), Upul Tharanga, Danushka Gunathilaka, Kusal Mendis, Dasun Shanaka, …
