Editor’s Pick (T20): England - West Indies

You know now that West Indies are not afraid of pulling out all stops. They have called in the big guns to fight their battles. They are eyeing the world cup and they want to make sure they go in all guns blazing. Big Guns = Chris Gayle. I have been watching cricket since the late 80s. I know what he means to the game, not just West Indies.

The test matches played earlier - England won two of three. The first one was won by an innings and 209 runs. The third one was won by nine wickets. So, considering the margin by which England won, the West Indies need to make sure the guns are armed and ready.
After the high tension test series, the shortest version of the game is here to enthrall you. Are you ready? Meet Eoin Morgan and Carlos Brathwaite fight it out.

England - Alex Hales, Jason Roy, Joe Root, Dawid Malan, Eoin Morgan (capt), Jos Buttler (wk), Liam Dawson, Adil Rashid, Tom Curran, Chris Jordan, Liam Plunkett
West Indies - Chris Gayle Evan Lewis, Marlon Samuels, Chadwick Walton (wk), Kieron Pollard, Rovman Powell, Carlos Brathwaite (capt), Ashley Nurse, Sunil Narine, Jerome Taylor, Keswick Williams

Weather report says it could rain tom. But the game will still happen. Decide the spinners and the fast bowlers you want on the team depending on the weather as well.

The grand Finale: India - England #GirlPower

The Lords did see one really beautiful match. India met England and it turned out to be a helluva encounter. The margin - 9 runs - made it a thriller match that placed you at the edge of your chair. Both the teams played magnificently and gave it all that they had for their countries. England did not put up a high total on the board, but they came back strong and stunned the Indians. The fightback was really something to watch. And England happily walked away with the cup. It was a moment of crowning glory for the British Women who fought hard in every way. The Women In Blue, led by Mithali Raj missed it by a whisker. But having said that, they have made everyone back home incredibly proud. Making it to the finals of one of the most coveted tournaments conducted by ICC should be appreciated and applauded.
A quick summary of the match.
Set to achieve a target of 229, the Indian Team looked set in their path to get their first world cup in their midst. Opener Punam Raut made sure of a g…

Editor’s Pick (T20): India - Sri Lanka

A young and relatively inexperienced team, the players are full of enthu and raring to go as they face Sri Lanka at home tomorrow for their first T20 match of the Nidahas Trophy. I’ll tell you one thing. India is full of confidence. The boys have beaten the lions before in their own den. Not just beaten but a brutal defeat the Lions faced. Team Sri Lanka, on the other hand, will not take this team lightly. Yes, they are young. Yes, many players are playing for the country for the very first time. But that does not make the players any less lethal or skilled. In fact, the young players are likely to be passionate and aggressive from the word go.
India squad: Rohit Sharma(c), Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul, Suresh Raina, Manish Pandey, Dinesh Karthik, Deepak Hooda, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Vijay Shankar, Shardul Thakur, Jaydev Unadkat, Mohammed Siraj, Rishabh Pant Sri Lanka squad: Dinesh Chandimal(c), Upul Tharanga, Danushka Gunathilaka, Kusal Mendis, Dasun Shanaka, …
