Editor’s Pick (KPL): Bengaluru Blasters - Hubli Tigers

Yesterday’s match - Namma Shivamogga vs Bellary Tuskers, 4th Match, was abandoned without even a single ball being bowled. They didn’t even go through the motions of the toss. Both teams share a point each. Learning to share because of the rain. Oh well. From a thriller third match to a wet blanket fourth.
Today’s match. Same venue as yesterday. Let’s hope the rains permit. Match starts at three in the afternoon though.
Hubli Tigers (From): Anurag Bajpai(w), Mayank Agarwal, Abhishek Reddy, Krishnamurthy Siddharth, Vinay Kumar(c), Praveen Dubey, Kranthi Kumar, Ritesh Bhatkal, Abhishek Sakuja, David Mathias, Aman Khan, Prithvi Varadarajan, S Shivaraj, Swapnil Yelave, Ishfaq Nazir Bhat, Dega Nischal, Sharan Gouda, Rohith Gowda
Bengaluru Blasters (From): Ravikumar Samarth(c), Raajoo Bhatkal, M Vishwanathan(w), Shishir Bhavane, Pavan Deshpande, Jeswanth Acharya, Manjesh Reddy, Abhishek Bhat, Mitrakanth Yadav, V Koushik, Prasidh Krishna, Nikin Jose, Srinivas Sharath, Rohan Raju, Pranav Bhatia, Shivam Mishra, Sinan Abdul Khader

Hubli Tigers are second on the table and Bengaluru, at the bottom with one loss from the match they played. We are still very early in the tournament so this current stand has no implications yet. Course seeing as the rains are very much on the cards; we will not discount the importance of the run rate.

Fantasy Sports in India - Growth and Future

Not Just Yet Another Western Import
Fantasy sports is already a huge phenomenon world over, particularly in the Western world, and is only growing. And an ecosystem is developing around it – from sports experts to technology providers to ordinary fans turned pundits.

Fantasy Sports in India has picked up significantly over the past few years, coinciding with the rise of franchise sports, particularly cricket and IPL. There are a number of providers that have launched their fantasy sports platforms and in many instances, more or less mimicked the offerings of their Western counterparts. These organisations have been claiming steady growth to their user base and winnings in the last two-three years, but somehow their numbers haven’t y…
