Editor’s Pick(Final Test): England - West Indies

England won the first test. West Indies won the second. It is always a thrill when the last and final match of the series is a decider. Not that the 9-0 whitewash victory that India marvellously accomplished during the tour of Sri Lanka was not appreciated. Well Indians most definitely did. A lot of memes around it hitting the net as well. That is expected of course. The lions defeated in their own dens. Thrashed mercilessly. Clean sweep. Emphatic win. Domination. No shortage of words there, that much I tell you.

So back to today’s match. It will be intriguing of course. The suspense does help. Will West Indies defeat England in their own - hmm what’s the Brit word for den?

My lineup
Batsmen
Joe Root
Kraigg Brathwaite
Alastair Cook
J Blackwood
Bowlers
Toby Roland
K Roach
Shannon Gabriel
James Anderson
Stuart Broad
All-Rounder
Ben Stokes
Wicket-Keeper
Shai Hope

Hope created history literally by defeating England in front of their home crowd by five wickets. It is really not easy to do so when the audience supports the opponent.
I have faith in experience - Hence Broad and Anderson. I have hope in Hope too.

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. It is only estimated to maintain and improve that trajectory of growth in the next 5 years.
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.
