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.

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

The table is currently in a very surprising situation. Most expected Sri Lanka to show Bangladesh the door. But here they are still standing up and shining. The tournament is wide open. Today’s match is between India and Sri Lanka. The stakes are much higher now that Bangladesh is more feared than before. The teams would not want to risk anything at this point. Earlier I had said that they might experiment with the lineup and give everyone a chance. Now it will be more than giving people a chance. They will strategize. The Indian team will be open to experimentation, but not at the cost of results.

The untested ones are Deepak Hooda, KL Rahul, and Axar Patel. India has lost to Sri Lanka in their first encounter of this tournament. They will want to be wary because another defeat could cost them the tournament itself. So, not all the new players will see the light today.
A lot depends on Rohit Sharma today. Shikhar Dhawan, Suresh Raina, Manish Pandey and Dinesh Karthik will chip in too.…

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 Points  MI has never won their opener since 2013.This was Chennai's first win against MI in an opener of this T20 League DRS used in the league for the first time Bravo: It was a great team effort. I want to dedicate this win to the CSK fan, they have waited long for it. I came very early. I …
