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.

TNPL - A Brief Rundown

Based on the stupendously successful Indian Premier League is the Tamil Nadu Premier League. This Indian T20 cricket league has been established by the Tamil Nadu State Cricket Association to bring out more and more Natarajans and Washingtons who otherwise do not get a chance to showcase their skill and talent in the world of Cricket. The inaugural edition of the TNPL took place in 2016 and received unexpected and unprecedented success and love. There was a brilliant batch of young men who came forward and made an event out of the first season of TNPL.

Venues 

India Cements Ground, Thirunelveli
NPR College Ground, Dindigul 
MA Chitambaram Stadium, Chennai 


Changes
The purpose of every organization is to make it bigger and better. TNPL is no exception. At the inaugural TNPL 2016, there were the traditional two semifinals and one final. This year will see a format similar to IPL. The finalists are decided by two qualifiers along with one eliminator. This format has proven to be more exciting.…

Editor’s Pick (Nidahas T20): India - Bangladesh

The tournament has reached a point that we all love. An exciting point where we still do not know who the finalists are. With just two matches to go and berth still wide open; the rest of the Nidahas tournament looks to be just as thrilling.
If India wins, India books a seat in the finals. If Bangladesh wins, the team takes the second place on the points table (or the first depending on the NRR) So while India should aim to win, an eye should be kept on the run rate at all times. Weather looks dicey as well. It might rain. D&L are prepared as well. Let’s also be. Picking a lineup at a rainy time is crucial. I would pick five batsmen to support a good score and a high run rate. With the batsmen of both teams playing rather well, you will have to pick carefully. Pick the more consistent ones. Bangladesh The team is on a high after the wins. The top five batsmen have clicked taking the team to a whole new level. The bowlers need to keep up with a more consistent line and length. India W…
