Editor’s Pick (Karnataka Premier League)

As of today, the top teams in the Karnataka Premier League Tournament are Mysuru Warriors and Hubli Tigers - both two wins from two matches  played. Good going. Then comes Namma Shivamogga with one win and one abandoned match from two matches. Their run rate is fab too. That will matter, especially to them as they are one of the rain-affected parties.


Today’s match is between Belagavi Panthers and Bengaluru Blasters. Home pitch for one of the teams. That will always make the difference to the home team. Mind games are just as vital as the cricketing strategies, if you ask me.
Both teams are yet to bring points to the board. They both want to move up the table. This will be a good match.


Bengaluru Blasters (From): M Vishwanathan(w), Raajoo Bhatkal, Nikin Jose, Shishir Bhavane(c), Pavan Deshpande, Manjesh Reddy, Srinivas Sharath, Abhishek Bhat, Mitrakanth Yadav, Prasidh Krishna, V Koushik, Ravikumar Samarth, Sinan Abdul Khader, Shivam Mishra, Jeswanth Acharya, Rohan Raju, Pranav Bhatia
Belagavi Panthers (From): Sharath BR(w), Mir Kaunan Abbas, KN Bharath, Stuart Binny, Sunil Kumar Jain, Nitin Bhille, Stallin Hoover, Sreenath Aravind(c), Shubang Hegde, Anand Doddamani, Satish Bharadwaj, Darshan Machaiah, Rakshith S, Kishore Kamat, Manish Pandey

V Koushik and Abhishek Bhat have good scores going in their favour. Keep the captains of the team of course.

The other match today is between Hubli Tigers and Namma Shivamogga. Though the Shivamoggas are one point less than the Tigers, their run rate is much better - +1.4 as opposed to +0.5180. Like I said earlier, this will matter.

Namma Shivamogga (From): Sadiq Kirmani(w), Liyan Khan, Rongsen Jonathan, Shoiab Manager, Anirudha Joshi, Balachandra Akhil(c), Abrar Kazi, Sarfaraz Ashraf, Abdul Majid, Pradeep T, Lavish Kaushal, Nihal Ullal, Aditya Somanna, Mashooq Hussain, Chiranjivi G S, K Hoysala

Manager was the man of the match of the last match he played and brought his team to the finishing line. Liyan Khan hit a half century. You can add him. Ashraf took three wickets. Him too.

Editor’s Pick(CPL): Trinbago Knight Riders vs Barbados Tridents

The previous match, Trinbago Knight Riders vs Guyana Amazon Warriors, saw the Knight Riders win by seven wickets. Played at Queen's Park Oval, Port of Spain, Trinidad, Chasing a target of 158, TKR scored 162 in 19 overs. Colin Munro, their highest scorer, hit 70 runs. It was a fairly one-sided match with TKR staying on top for most parts.
The Knight Riders are right on top of the table, with three wins and one loss from four matches played. Their run rate of +1.680 will matter, for sure. DLS has been applied in this tournament and can be applied again. Barbados Tridents come second on the table with two wins from three matches. They earlier beat St Lucas Stars by 21 runs (DLS Method). This will be a close match, considering that both teams are in good form.
Barbados Tridents (From): Dwayne Smith, Kane Williamson, Shoaib Malik, Kieron Pollard(c), Nicholas Pooran(w), Christopher Barnwell, Akeal Hosein, Wayne Parnell, Imran Khan, Ravi Rampaul, Wahab Riaz, Raymon Reifer, Damion Jacobs…
