Washington Sundar walked away with the honours. Now, the Patriots get a chance to defend their title in the finals. Chepauk Super Gillies take on the winner of Qualifier 2.

Let’s take a look at the match today that will make the difference.
Teams:
Lyca Kovai Kings: Murali Vijay(c), L Suryaprakash, B Anirudh Sita Ram, Ravi Kumar Rohith(w), Akshay Srinivasan, S Harish Kumar, M Mohammed, Krishnamoorthy Vignesh, B Arun, S Ajith Ram, K Gowtham Thamarai Kannan, M Siddharth, Pradosh Ranjan Paul, Manish Ravi, K Deeban Lingesh, MK Sivakumar, S Tarun Srinivas, Ranjan Paul

S Badrinath
Murali Vijay
K Vishal Vaidhya
S Aniruddha
M Shahjahan
All-Rounder
S Lokeshwar

This lineup left me with a salary of six to pick one more player. There is no player at that price. So I had to drop R Rajkumar, replace him with S.Ajit Ram, and then add Suresh Babu.

An alternate lineup.

Kovai Kings have peaked in the right moment and have given themselves the opportunity to be in the finals. If they score well in this match, they are capable of even winning the cup. Kovai has demonstrated some very good performance and will put up a fight for sure. Kaalai has a good team with Sunil Sam, Shah Jahan and Chandrasekar. S Anirudha is sure to fire as well.

Blog Time : Ashes to Ashes

If anything comes close to the eccentric hype that takes place during India-Pakistan series, it is the Ashes. That is not the only similarity. This tournament is just as personal. The phrase ‘let’s go to the mattresses’ is taken very seriously during this tournament. That is seen if you take a look at how the name came about in the very first place.

THE NAME The first match between the two teams - England and Australia - took place in Melbourne, Australia in 1877. The legend of the Ashes began in 1882, after the ninth test. Australia toured England. It was a brilliant match. A match that Australia won on the English Soil. A match they almost lost. Dead silence took over the stadium. They could not believe their team had just lost to a colony on home soil.


On 2 September a celebrated mock obituary, written by Reginald Shirley Brooks, appeared in The Sporting Times. It read: In Affectionate Remembrance of ENGLISH CRICKET, which died at the Oval on 29 August 1882, Deeply lamented by a large…

Editor’s Pick (Nidahas T20): India - Bangladesh

The tournament has reached a point that we all love. An exciting point where we still do not know who the finalists are. With just two matches to go and berth still wide open; the rest of the Nidahas tournament looks to be just as thrilling.
If India wins, India books a seat in the finals. If Bangladesh wins, the team takes the second place on the points table (or the first depending on the NRR) So while India should aim to win, an eye should be kept on the run rate at all times. Weather looks dicey as well. It might rain. D&L are prepared as well. Let’s also be. Picking a lineup at a rainy time is crucial. I would pick five batsmen to support a good score and a high run rate. With the batsmen of both teams playing rather well, you will have to pick carefully. Pick the more consistent ones. Bangladesh The team is on a high after the wins. The top five batsmen have clicked taking the team to a whole new level. The bowlers need to keep up with a more consistent line and length. India W…
