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.

Blog Time : Ashes to Ashes

If anything comes close to the eccentric hype that takes place during India-Pakistan series, it is the Ashes. That is not the only similarity. This tournament is just as personal. The phrase ‘let’s go to the mattresses’ is taken very seriously during this tournament. That is seen if you take a look at how the name came about in the very first place.

THE NAME The first match between the two teams - England and Australia - took place in Melbourne, Australia in 1877. The legend of the Ashes began in 1882, after the ninth test. Australia toured England. It was a brilliant match. A match that Australia won on the English Soil. A match they almost lost. Dead silence took over the stadium. They could not believe their team had just lost to a colony on home soil.


On 2 September a celebrated mock obituary, written by Reginald Shirley Brooks, appeared in The Sporting Times. It read: In Affectionate Remembrance of ENGLISH CRICKET, which died at the Oval on 29 August 1882, Deeply lamented by a large…

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…
