Editor’s Pick (KPL): Bengaluru Blasters - Namma Shivamogga

Thirteenth match of the tournament, Bengaluru Blasters meet Namma Shivamogga today. Both teams are not really doing well. That is to say the least. The Blasters are yet to even open their account and get some points on the board. Having lost all three of their matches, they are at the bottom with a run rate of -1.4310. Well if you don’t have points, run rate is the least of your concern. The Shivamoggams have three points and a fairly healthy run rate. The second highest rate of the tournament today. If they win this match today, they will become second on the table. The abandoned match might have cost them this.

Today’s lineup
Batsmen
Rongsen Jonathan
Manjesh Reddy
Liyan Khan
Anirudha Joshi
Bowlers
Sarfaraz Ashraf
Abhisek Bhat
T Pradeep
Prasidh Krishna
V Koushik
All-Rounder
Shoaib Manager
Wicket-Keeper
M Vishwanathan

I created this lineup and I realized that I have 5 points in salary left. So I had a look back and tried to pick the players with high salary so that I did not feel like I am wasting. But high salary does not really mean high performance right? The current form takes a bigger role.
What do you think?

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. Industry estimates peg the overall market for Fantasy Sports in the US alone to be $4 Billion annually[1] and grew at a rate of 8.5%[2] annually between 2011-2016. It is only estimated to maintain and improve that trajectory of growth in the next 5 years.
Fantasy Sports in India has picked up significantly over the past few years, coinciding with the rise of franchise sports, particularly cricket and IPL.
