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.

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?

Editor’s Pick: India - West Indies

First Match - Abandoned Second Match - India Beat West Indies by 105 runs. Third Match - India Beat West Indies by 93 runs. Fourth Match - Hmm… I don’t really want to talk about it.
Oh well.. Here goes. It was a rather embarrassing defeat. The series looked very much in the kitty when India had to chase 190 runs. The faithful Indian Fans probably even started celebrating. Even though the first three wickets fell rather early, Rahane stuck in there and hit 60 runs to pave what looked like a really short road to victory. And then came Dhoni. No one would have even considered the chance of a defeat. Not even a pessimist.
Time moved slowly after that. Or at least Dhoni did. He batted and batted and batted. Remember that time Sunny Gavaskar scored a 174-ball 36 runs? It was 1975 all over again. Dhoni’s innings were just as excruciatingly painful. It would have been worth it had India won of course. India fell short of the target and West Indies won by 11 runs. They were probably surprised t…
