Editor’s Pick(TNPL): Tuti Patriots - Lyca Kovai Kings

Four wins from four games. They are on top of their game. Tuti Patriots. They seem to be able to do nothing wrong so far. They are quite dominant this season and rightly so. The way the calmly defeated Chepauk Super Gillies by a fairly big margin of 27 runs showed that they are playing a very level-headed game. Unless someone breaks this streak, the cup is not too far away from their grasp.
Today’ they meet Lyca Kovai Kings. The Kings have not had a great tournament so far. They have only one win from three matches. Well to be fair, they lost only one. The third match was abandoned. Having said that, their run rate is still as bad as -0.1250. They are third from the bottom and they are meeting a team who have not lost any of their four matches. Will Lyca manage to break the winning stride of the Patriots? Never say never.

Key Players: India - England

When there is nothing left, you will play for pride. That is what India has to do tomorrow. Considering the fact that the match is taking place in Mumbai. Do it for them. Do it for us.  England and Australia will meet each other at the finals on 31st March. India and England are more than likely to go in with the same playing eleven.
India Terribly low on morale, the team will now have to give it their all. They need to know that they are much better than this.

England The team has been doing really well since day one. They will now consider this as a practice match. But they will want to win and go to the finals with confidence. They were thumped by Australia earlier in what can be called as a one-sided game. They want to win this tomorrow.

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…
