If you look at the lineup above, you will see that I have selected players based on their performance so far in the TNPL. While the selection percentage statistics do matter, the points that they have Ravisrinivasan S Kishore scored a high 228 so far. Washington has a phenomenal score of 521. These numbers reflect on the ability of the player to perform consistently. The players you want on the lineup are those who can be depended upon. These points show that they have played well in most of their matches. When you have scores like these, a 171 by U Sasidev seems low, doesn’t it? He has played very well in the tournament so far and deserves to be in the lineup as well, let me reassure you. So does Rajagopal Sathish, even though his selection percentage is only 36.
SP Nathan has a selection percentage of 83, and a score of 128. Would you take him?

Not Just Yet Another Western Import

And an ecosystem is developing around it – from sports experts to technology providers to ordinary fans turned pundits. Industry estimates peg the overall market for Fantasy Sports in the US alone to be $4 Billion annually[1] and grew at a rate of 8.5%[2] annually between 2011-2016.
