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?

Gneshwar naveen(AR) has done really well in the semifinals. So if you want him, you can remove someone. I like my allrounders. So naveen won’t be in my team.

Key Players: India - England

When there is nothing left, you will play for pride. That is what India has to do tomorrow. Considering the fact that the match is taking place in Mumbai. Do it for them. Do it for us.  England and Australia will meet each other at the finals on 31st March. India and England are more than likely to go in with the same playing eleven.
India Terribly low on morale, the team will now have to give it their all. They need to know that they are much better than this.

England The team has been doing really well since day one. They will now consider this as a practice match. But they will want to win and go to the finals with confidence. They were thumped by Australia earlier in what can be called as a one-sided game. They want to win this tomorrow.

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

The table is currently in a very surprising situation. Most expected Sri Lanka to show Bangladesh the door. But here they are still standing up and shining. The tournament is wide open. Today’s match is between India and Sri Lanka. The stakes are much higher now that Bangladesh is more feared than before. The teams would not want to risk anything at this point. Earlier I had said that they might experiment with the lineup and give everyone a chance. Now it will be more than giving people a chance. They will strategize. The Indian team will be open to experimentation, but not at the cost of results.

The untested ones are Deepak Hooda, KL Rahul, and Axar Patel. India has lost to Sri Lanka in their first encounter of this tournament. They will want to be wary because another defeat could cost them the tournament itself. So, not all the new players will see the light today.
A lot depends on Rohit Sharma today. Shikhar Dhawan, Suresh Raina, Manish Pandey and Dinesh Karthik will chip in too.…
