Editor’s Pick (KPL)

19th September. BIG DAY in the world of Karnataka Premier League. No it is not the day of the finals but it decides who makes it to the semifinals on September 20th and 22nd. The winners of the below two matches are a shoo-in.

Namma Shivamogga played on 16th September. Or rather, they tried. Rains took over. One point was awarded to each team, taking Namma Shivamogga to the second place. Second to Belagavi Panthers. If they win today, they will take top place.  Same goes with Mysuru Warriors too. Both teams are with six points on the table with only the net run rate to tell them apart.

Mysuru Warriors (From): Arjun Hoysala, K C Avinash(w), Shreyas Gopal, Suneel Raju(c), Bhareth NP, S P Manjunath, Jagadeesha Suchith, Santhebennur Akshay, Vyshak Vijay Kumar, Shivil Koushik, Kushaal Wadhwani, Ram Sharik Yadav, R Prateeksh, Nikith Sanganakal, KL Shrijith, Vinit Yadav, Vikash Kumar Sinha
Namma Shivamogga (From): Liyan Khan, Abrar Kazi, Abdul Majid, Rongsen Jonathan, Shoiab Manager, Chiranjivi G S(w), Balachandra Akhil(c), Anirudha Joshi, Sarfaraz Ashraf, Aditya Somanna, Pradeep T, Nihal Ullal, Mashooq Hussain, Sadiq Kirmani, K Hoysala, Lavish Kaushal

The second match is between Hubli Tigers and Bellary Tuskers. If the tuskers win, they get 7 points on the table and land amongst the top three depending on the run rate. Hubli Tigers already have 6 points on the board. If they win this match, they make it to the semifinals without much ado.

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.…
