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.

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

Fan Data Analytics: Key to drive sports company growth

Over the last several years, the buzz word in business and IT circles has been "big-data" and analytics. Many many articles and write-ups talk about them so I won't go into the details. You could get enough to last a lifetime with just the first few results of a Google search of these terms. But do you really know how it applies, specifically to a sports company? For long, sports franchises have been one of the biggest users of analytics. Before this was a buzz word, coaches and managers have relied up numbers and finding patterns in them to drive on-field performance. Indeed, the major leagues of the world have relied on performance analytics for everything from scouting for talent to calling the action on the field of play. But that never transcended to the off-field, more mundane but equally important task of managing the sports business. As more and more options come up vying for the fan's attention - live events, travel, other sports, TV, the Internet - the

Blog Time: How I won my Fantain Fantasy Cricket

I played the Sri Lanka – Zimbabwe match and I won more than six times what I put in. That is a really good investment, isn’t it? I have been asked by Fantain to share what I did and how I planned my lineup. This is how. Kusal Perera  – I made him captain. I won a massive 120 points. My vice-captain was Dinesh Chandimal .  So I got 43.5. In hindsight, I could have picked Perera. He did fabulously well and earned a whopping 89 on the app. The other player in my lineup who helped me win was Sikandar Raza . He got 88.5 on the app. These four players are a must be in the next match between Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe.  Dinesh Chandimal is one good consistent player that I always have. So it’s like this. I have four categories when I play fantasy cricket. One is the must-have players who will be on my team no matter what. For this match that I played, they were Kusal Perera, Dinesh Chandimal, and Upul Tharanga. For me, old is gold. Experience speaks volumes. The second category is ba
