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

The scores are tied now. The World XI team back back. Came back strongly at that in the second T20 match of the Independence Cup 2017 played in Pakistan to defeat the hosts by 7 wickets.
Here’s what happened. Amla hit 72 off 55 deliveries. Perera - 47 off 19. They had to hit a target of 175 and 175 they hit with one delivery to spare. Close match it was. Earlier Pakistan’s Babar Azam hit 45 and Ahmed Shehzad, 43. Even with Shoaib Malik’s contribution of 39, the score on the board was not enough.
Tomorrow’s the third and final match. The decider of the tournament. It will be close and tense. This is my pick

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.

Fantasy Sports in India has picked up significantly over the past few years, coinciding with the rise of franchise sports, particularly cricket and IPL. There are a number of providers that have launched their fantasy sports platforms and in many instances, more or less mimicked the offerings of their Western counterparts.
