Editor’s Pick (ODI) England - West Indies

Tomorrow is the fourth ODI. Quick recap.
19th September - England won by 7 wickets
21st September - Match Abandoned
24th September - England won by 124 runs

The match takes place at the Oval, London. England is booming with confidence. They are leading the series 2-1 and literally crushed the West Indies by a large margin. Moeen Ali came out of nowhere with a bolt of energy to hit 61 runs from 14 deliveries. England smashed 369 runs in 50 overs. West Indies were all out by the 40th over, getting only 245 runs on the board. Moeen Ali, as expected, was the man of the match for his 79-ball 102 runs. . Chris Gayle’s 94 was but in vain. Would have been nice to watch his century. He deserved it.

India-NZ. As it happened.

And the series is leveled. Well. We saw the ODI series level. The third and final match was more than a blast. Despite having a ton of runs on the scoreboard, the match and the series could have gone either way. That was the best part of it. Course it was a world of entertainment for all cricket fans. Honestly even a third party not emotionally vested in the two teams could watch and appreciate the demonstration of fine cricket. Now the T20 series is looking the same way. India won the first match and NZ came back strong and hard in the second match. The match deciding the fate of the tournament is on 7th November. Boy are we interested or what. Let’s see what happened in the second match now.

New Zealand won the toss and decided to bat. A supreme not out 58 ball 109 runs by Colin Munro took New Zealand to the path of destruction. I mean look at the strike rate - 187.93. That is a mind blowing number. The other batsmen didn’t do that bad either. Martin Guptil’s 45 runs from 41 deliver…

Peshawar Zalmi vs Multan Sultans - Post Match Blog.

The bigger they are, the harder they fall. Ain't it true. Newcomers Sultans thrash Peshawar Zalmi by 7 wickets in PSL 2018 opener sending shockwaves through the league. Being a defending champion did take a toll on Peshawar Zalmi. Not easy walking into a tournament with everyone looking at you assuming you will win.


When the Sultans came in to bat, they had an early upset when they lost the opener for a duck. With a target of 152, it took the experienced Kumara Sangakkara to set the ship on course towards the target. He was calm and composed as he has been throughout his international career. Singles and doubles. And planned boundaries. By the time he was out, caught behind, the team was fairly stable. Shoaib Malik’s captain knock along with Kieron Pollard finished the match in style.
Earlier in the day, Peshawar Zalmi came in to bat. Apart from Mohammad Hafeez’s 59, with twenty-something runs from Dwayne Smith and Darren Sammy; the rest of the batsmen barely contributed. Like I s…
