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?

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(ODI): South Africa - Bangladesh

The first ODI was a thumping success for South Africa as they crush Bangladesh by ten wickets. Now I rarely use the word thumping because it is such a cliched word but sometimes such words are the need of the day. Quinton’s 168 and Amla’s 110 was all the team needed to cruise to a very obvious victory. South Africa take the lead 1-0 in the three match series. If Bangladesh come back like the phoenix of the ashes and show the South Africans what they got, we have a wonderful series on our hands. Else it is just another day of cricket and the favourites win. I like to bet on the underdogs. I love to watch them fight back and surprise the audience. Let’s see South Africa
