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.

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.…

IPL So Far II

27th April 2017

IPL so far

The tournament is halfway through. There have been some brilliant performances and some worth forgetting. The T20 fever has gripped the country with intensity. Come evening, and cricket fans sit in front of the television, with the phone in their hands. This is to follow not just the men on the fields but also their very own fantasy team that they have created on the Fantain App.
Let’s have a look at how the eight teams have played so far. Going in the order of points on the table

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

Here we are. The third and final match of the T20 series. The match between India and New Zealand that decides the fate of the tournament. This is because India won the first match and New Zealand, the second. If you look at the previous match fantasy lineup, there were two players on the fantain app who won the top points. Rakesh Saini and Tadipaar. Their lineup Colin Munro Virat Kohli Trent Boult MS Dhoni Martin Guptill Ish Sodhi Y Chahal Kane Williamson Bhuvneshwar Kumar Rohit Sharma Shikhar Dhawan

The thing is that while I would love to take the same lineup, there is no guarantee that this could be the winner. It is a fab lineup though. Batsmen Virat Kohli Martin Guptill Shikhar Dhawan Rohit Sharma Bowlers Jasprit Bumrah Ish Sodhi Trent Boult Bhuvneshwar Kumar All-Rounders Mitchell Santner
