Editor's Pick (ODI): West Indies - Ireland

You say Ireland, the first thing that comes to my mind is that incredibly romantic movie - P.S.I love you. Yes, I know. This is supposed to be a blog on cricket. Couldn’t help it. Sorry.

So, West Indies is off to play cricket in one of the most beautiful locations in the world. The biggest news is the recalling of West Indies team icon, Chris Gayle. He joins the team after a big gap since the 2015 World Cup. Yes, in the world of cricket, two years is a really long time.
Ireland earned their test status in Jan. It is a big deal indeed. This is their only ODI this time.Ireland has toured West Indies twice and have lost both times. West Indies then go to face Morgan’s team after this match. They want to win too. Jerome Taylor and Marlon Samuels join Gayle on their trip. West Indies want to win because they want to qualify for the World Cup in 2019. India stepped in the way of Sri Lanka’s attempt for the same.
Other news is that John Bracewell is all set to step down as The Ireland Coach in December.

Ireland - William Porterfield (c), John Anderson, Andrew Balbirnie, Peter Chase, Ed Joyce, George Dockrell, Tim Murtagh, Kevin O’Brien, Niall O’Brien, Boyd Rankin, Simi Singh, Gary Wilson, Paul Stirling.
West Indies - Jason Holder ( C ), Sunil Ambris, Devendra Bishoo, Miguel Cummins, Chris Gayle, Kyle Hope, Shai Hope, Alzarri Joseph, Evin Lewis, Jason Mohammed, Ashley Nurse, Rovman, Powell, Marlon Samuels, Jerome Taylor, Kesrick Williams

Chennai beats Mumbai and clinch thriller

It is not just about coming back. It is about the impact you make in the process. And Chennai team knows how to with a bang.  The Chennai team beat the home team by one wicket in what was an absolute sit-at-the-end-of-the-chair thriller. It was one of the best chases the tournament has seen and it most definitely won't be the last. The player who made the difference in the end - Jadhav - literally came back from the dead after retiring hurt to take his team to the finish line by hitting the ball in style with a six and a four.  Batting on one leg and playing an absolutely unbelievable shot, this player leveled the scores first with a six and finished the match with a four.

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.
