Editor’s Pick (KPL): Belagavi Panthers - Bijapur Bulls

The table currently looks beautiful. Yes. I know it’s a points table of six teams playing a cricket tournament. But, hey. Don’t listen to me. Look at it yourself. The team on the top is Belagavi Panthers have seven points on the table from three wins and one abandoned match. With an over the top net run rate of +0.7620, the team is safe. For now. I say for now cos four of the other teams have six points next to their names. And the fifth team with five points. I have never seen a table with such close points. The net run rate is different of course. That’s how the ranking is done now. The last team - Bengaluru Blasters - have been blasted right out of the tournament because they haven’t had a win yet.

Today’s match is between Belagavi Panthers and Bijapur Bulls. The Panthers are yes, right on top but since the difference is really not much; they will not take any match lightly.

Bijapur Bulls (From): Mohammed Taha, Bharath Chipli(c), Naveen MG, Dikshanshu Negi, HS Sharath, Nidhish M, AM Kiran(w), Abhimanyu Mithun, Prithvi Shekawat, Ronit More, KC Cariappa, GM Rishabh, Rajat Hegde, Rishabh Singh, Raj Atul Gala, Prashanth S, Lal Sachin

Sharath is a good man to have. Chipli - you do not even have to ask. Same with Mithun. He has won enough man-of-the-match awards to tell you to pick him. Stuart Binny has done really well.
Any doubts?

Chennai beats Mumbai and clinch thriller

It is not just about coming back. It is about the impact you make in the process. And Chennai team knows how to with a bang.  The Chennai team beat the home team by one wicket in what was an absolute sit-at-the-end-of-the-chair thriller. It was one of the best chases the tournament has seen and it most definitely won't be the last. The player who made the difference in the end - Jadhav - literally came back from the dead after retiring hurt to take his team to the finish line by hitting the ball in style with a six and a four.  Batting on one leg and playing an absolutely unbelievable shot, this player leveled the scores first with a six and finished the match with a four. 
Key Points  MI has never won their opener since 2013.This was Chennai's first win against MI in an opener of this T20 League DRS used in the league for the first time Bravo: It was a great team effort. I want to dedicate this win to the CSK fan, they have waited long for it. I came very early. I …

Editor's Pick (t20): India - South Africa

Whoever said ‘don’t make a habit out of it’ was not referring to winning. I do love writing ‘India won’ blogs and it is a pleasure to make a habit out of it as well. The Indian cricket team is most definitely making sure that the habit sticks. We are more than just on a roll in South Africa. We have found what clicks for us and we are making use of it. The best part is that almost all the players are performing. So we are actually open to experimenting and bringing in fresh faces. This way, not only do all the boys get the taste of playing, team South Africa is unable to get used to any one player long enough to figure out the style and a way to defeat it. Way to go Ravi Shastri and Virat Kohli. Talking about team selection. How is your selection going? Are you also listening to our audio podcast and getting that added advantage?
Let's get back to the matches. We lost the test matches. But we have won the ODI series in a landslide way. And are one up in the T20 series. We are repla…
