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.

Fantasy Sports in India - Growth and Future

Not Just Yet Another Western Import
Fantasy sports is already a huge phenomenon world over, particularly in the Western world, and is only growing. And an ecosystem is developing around it – from sports experts to technology providers to ordinary fans turned pundits. Industry estimates peg the overall market for Fantasy Sports in the US alone to be $4 Billion annually[1] and grew at a rate of 8.5%[2] annually between 2011-2016.
