Editors Pick (KPL Finals): Belagavi Panthers vs Bijapur Bulls

The finals are here. The tournament that started at the beginning of this month reaches the climax. It has been a wonderful month. Quite a few tournaments and hey.. We are not complaining. We do get twice the fun and excitement don’t we? Yes, we do.

So, the second semi-finals took place between Bijapur Bulls and Namma Shivamogga. It was really some finish. Namma Shivamogga, the perpetual topper of the table was knocked out and how! Goes to show that marks and points are not everything. You can be the first ranker in the class and someone can still beat you to the top prize. Bill Gates said that too. He flunked a few exams while his classmates aced them all. He ended up owning Microsoft and they managed a job there. Well Said Gates!!

Coming back to the match. It was a high scoring match. NS hit 157 runs for the loss of five wickets in 20 overs. Chipli backed the call to chase. Mithun connected the ball really well. He was sent in early and it paid off. He was the man of the match is what was a good chase indeed. A close match. That’s what we love. Got Negi’s heart all excited too apparently. And us. BIJ reached the target with 2 deliveries to spare.

The finals should be a cracker. Both teams are now well versed with each other’s strengths and weaknesses. They know which button to push. They are ready with the strategy. What’s yours for the lineup today?

The grand Finale: India - England #GirlPower

The Lords did see one really beautiful match. India met England and it turned out to be a helluva encounter. The margin - 9 runs - made it a thriller match that placed you at the edge of your chair. Both the teams played magnificently and gave it all that they had for their countries. England did not put up a high total on the board, but they came back strong and stunned the Indians. The fightback was really something to watch. And England happily walked away with the cup. It was a moment of crowning glory for the British Women who fought hard in every way. The Women In Blue, led by Mithali Raj missed it by a whisker. But having said that, they have made everyone back home incredibly proud. Making it to the finals of one of the most coveted tournaments conducted by ICC should be appreciated and applauded.
A quick summary of the match.
Set to achieve a target of 229, the Indian Team looked set in their path to get their first world cup in their midst. Opener Punam Raut made sure of a g…

Editor’s Pick (T20): India - Sri Lanka

A young and relatively inexperienced team, the players are full of enthu and raring to go as they face Sri Lanka at home tomorrow for their first T20 match of the Nidahas Trophy. I’ll tell you one thing. India is full of confidence. The boys have beaten the lions before in their own den. Not just beaten but a brutal defeat the Lions faced. Team Sri Lanka, on the other hand, will not take this team lightly. Yes, they are young. Yes, many players are playing for the country for the very first time. But that does not make the players any less lethal or skilled. In fact, the young players are likely to be passionate and aggressive from the word go.
India squad: Rohit Sharma(c), Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul, Suresh Raina, Manish Pandey, Dinesh Karthik, Deepak Hooda, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Vijay Shankar, Shardul Thakur, Jaydev Unadkat, Mohammed Siraj, Rishabh Pant Sri Lanka squad: Dinesh Chandimal(c), Upul Tharanga, Danushka Gunathilaka, Kusal Mendis, Dasun Shanaka, …
