Editor’s Pick (PKL)

The gap between the teams that are on top of the two zones - Gujarat Fortune Giants and Bengal Warriors - with the rest of the teams is quite big. These two teams have almost booked their seats in the next round.


Today’s first match is between Haryana and Patna.
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
Patna Pirates - Squad strength: 18 (16 Indian, 2 Overseas)
Defenders –  Vishal Mane, Sachin Shingade, Jaideep, Manish Kumar, Satish, Sandeep, Virender Singh
Raiders – Vijay, Monu Goyat, Pardeep Narwal, Md. Zakir Hossain, Vikas Jaglan, Vinod Kumar, Vishnu Uthaman, Jawahar
All Rounders –  Mohammad Maghsoudlou, Parveen Birwal, Arvind Kumar


I had trouble picking an all-rounder for this lineup. Not cos there were too many good players. That problem, I had with the raiders. Oh well. You cannot not have Pardeep Narwal. Or Monu Goyat. When you have such players, there is really not much to second-guess.


My lineup
AR: Deepak Kumar
DF: Sachin Shingade, Mohit Chhillar, Jaideep
RA: Pardeep Narwal, Wazir Singh, Monu Goyat


The other match is between Gujarat and UP
Gujarat Fortune Giants - Squad strength: 18 (15 Indian, 3 Overseas)
Defenders – Abozar Mighani, C Kalai Arasan, Fazel Atrachali, Vikas Kale, Manoj Kumar, Parvesh Bhainswal, Sunil Kumar
Raiders –  Sukesh Hegde, Mahendra Rajput, Sachin, Amit Rathi, Dange Sultan, Pawan Kumar, Rakesh Narwal, Chandran Ranjit
All Rounders – Seong Ryeol Kim, Mahipal Narwal, Rohit Gulia
UP Yoddha - Squad strength: 18 (16 Indian, 2 Overseas)
Defenders – Jeeva Kumar, Hadi Tajik, Nitesh Kumar, Gurvinder Singh, Santosh BS, Rohit Kumar, Sanoj Kumar
Raiders – Rishank Devadiga, Sulieman Kabir, Nitin Tomar, Surendra Singh, Mahesh Goud, Ajvender Singh, Gulveer Singh
All Rounders – Rajesh Narwal, Pankaj, Sunil, Sagar B Krishna


The thing about meeting toppers is that, not only do you know that they are good; they know it too.

My lineup
AR: Rohit Gulia, Rajesh Narwal
DF: Abozar Mighani, Fazel Atrachali
RA: Sachin, Nitin Tomar, Rishank Devadiga


The key is to allot your salary accordingly. After a point, the players you pick are rather consistent.

TNPL - A Brief Rundown

Based on the stupendously successful Indian Premier League is the Tamil Nadu Premier League. This Indian T20 cricket league has been established by the Tamil Nadu State Cricket Association to bring out more and more Natarajans and Washingtons who otherwise do not get a chance to showcase their skill and talent in the world of Cricket. The inaugural edition of the TNPL took place in 2016 and received unexpected and unprecedented success and love. There was a brilliant batch of young men who came forward and made an event out of the first season of TNPL.

Venues 

India Cements Ground, Thirunelveli
NPR College Ground, Dindigul 
MA Chitambaram Stadium, Chennai 


Changes
The purpose of every organization is to make it bigger and better. TNPL is no exception. At the inaugural TNPL 2016, there were the traditional two semifinals and one final. This year will see a format similar to IPL. The finalists are decided by two qualifiers along with one eliminator. This format has proven to be more exciting.…

Editor’s Pick (Nidahas T20): India - Bangladesh

The tournament has reached a point that we all love. An exciting point where we still do not know who the finalists are. With just two matches to go and berth still wide open; the rest of the Nidahas tournament looks to be just as thrilling.
If India wins, India books a seat in the finals. If Bangladesh wins, the team takes the second place on the points table (or the first depending on the NRR) So while India should aim to win, an eye should be kept on the run rate at all times. Weather looks dicey as well. It might rain. D&L are prepared as well. Let’s also be. Picking a lineup at a rainy time is crucial. I would pick five batsmen to support a good score and a high run rate. With the batsmen of both teams playing rather well, you will have to pick carefully. Pick the more consistent ones. Bangladesh The team is on a high after the wins. The top five batsmen have clicked taking the team to a whole new level. The bowlers need to keep up with a more consistent line and length. India W…
