Editor’s Pick ( PKL)

The gap between the top team and the second team in both zones is closing. The other teams are trying to catch up big time. They are making proper use of the numerous number of matches to make up for the lost ones. That is prudent indeed.
Gujarat Fortune Giants are still on top with 46 points. Team Haryana is second with 41 and U Mumbai with 39. Zone B sees Bengal Warriors with 45 points. Patna is second with 36 along with UP Yoddha. Now it is harder to tell which three teams from each zone will make it to the next level.

The first match is between Bangal and Hyderabad. Bengal leads the zone while Hyderabad are yet to find their bearings.
Bengal Warriors - Squad strength: 18 (16 Indian, 2 Overseas)
Defenders –  Young Chang Ko, Ameares Mondal, Sandeep Malik, Surjeet Singh, Virender  Singh, Rahul Kumar, Shashank Wankhede
Raiders – Jang Kun Lee, Maninder Singh, Deepak Narwal, Vinod Kumar, Virender Wazir Singh, Kuldeep, Anil Kumar
All Rounders –  Bhupender Singh, Shrikant Tewthia, Ran Singh, Ravindra Kumavat, Vikash
Telugu Titans - Squad strength: 18 (16 Indian, 2 Overseas)
Defenders – Rohit Rana, Farhad Rahimi, Vinod Kumar, Amit Singh Chhillar, Sombir
Raiders – Mohsen Maghsoudloujafari, Athul MS, Rahul Chaudhari, Vikas Kumar, Vikas (Services), Nilesh Salunke, Munish, Vinoth Kumar, Munish, Vikrant, Ankit Malik
All Rounders – Rakesh Kumar, Vishal Bharadwaj, Elangeshwaran R

My lineup
AR: Ran Singh, Vishal Bharadwaj
DF: Surjeet Singh
RA: Maninder Singh, Nilesh Salunke, Vinoth Kumar, Rahul Chaudhari
The above players have fab points in the app. They have proven to be the pillars in the team.

The second match is between Delhi and Haryana.
Dabang Delhi - Squad strength: 20 (18 Indian, 2 Overseas)
Defenders – Nilesh Shinde, Bajirao Hodage, Sunil, Viraj Vishnu Landge, Swapnil Shinde, Satpal
Raiders – Ravi Dalal, Abolfazl Maghsoudlou, Suraj Desai, Rohit Baliyan, Patil Anand, Suresu Kumar, Vipin Malik, Shubham Palkar
All Rounders –  Tapas Pal, Vishal, Meraj Sheykh, Rupesh Tomar, Chetan S, Yatharth
Haryana Steelers - Squad strength: 22 (20 Indian, 2 Overseas)
Defenders – Mohit Chhillar, Neeraj Kumar, Vikash, Surender Nada, Mahender Singh Dhaka, Jeeva Gopal, Rakesh S. Kumar, Neeral Kumar, Babu M, Raju Lal Choudhary
Raiders – Sonu Narwal, Khomsan Thongkham, Deepak Kumar, Surjeet Singh, Prashant K Rai, Deepak Dahiya, Wazir Singh, Vikash Khandola, Ashish Chhokar
All Rounders –  David Mosambayi, Mayur Shivtarkar, Deepak Rathee, Parmod Narwal, Kuldeep Singh

This team has a whole lot of players with high scores. It now boils down to fitting the players whose salary total comes up to 100.
This is my lineup
AR: Meraj Sheykh
DF: Mohit Chhillar, Surendar Nada
RA: Anand Patil, Vikash Khandola, Wazir Singh, Abolfazi Maghsodiou

Fantasy Sports in India - Growth and Future

Not Just Yet Another Western Import
Fantasy sports is already a huge phenomenon world over, particularly in the Western world, and is only growing. And an ecosystem is developing around it – from sports experts to technology providers to ordinary fans turned pundits. Industry estimates peg the overall market for Fantasy Sports in the US alone to be $4 Billion annually[1] and grew at a rate of 8.5%[2] annually between 2011-2016.

Fantasy Sports in India has picked up significantly over the past few years, coinciding with the rise of franchise sports, particularly cricket and IPL. There are a number of providers that have launched their fantasy sports platforms and in many instances, more or less mimicked the offerings of their Western counterparts.
