Editor’s Pick (T20): Pakistan - World XI

Well well well !!! What do you know? Pakistan showed the world, didn’t they? They still got it and they flaunted it really well at the first match. Babar Azam, for starters, showed why he is a big part of the future of Pakistan’s Cricket. Slamming 86 runs in 52 balls sure took his team all the way to to the finishing line. Faf Du Plessis did his best, yes. But it was not enough. It was Pakistan’s day. This particular victory means more to Pakistan than any other match. It came at the right time when they wanted to show the world that they are back in form, back on their feet and very much part of the cricketing world.

Pakistan is a team that can do exceedingly well or collapse all at one. Yesterday, it was the former. Good for them.
Currently, Pakistan lead the three match series by one. Today’s the second T20.

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 …
