World Cup 2019

Before you know it, world cup 2019 will be here in a jiffy. You should know that every match played counts. Every point won makes a difference to the position of the team in the ICC ranking table. Taking into consideration all the matches played so far, the following teams have automatically qualified for the 2019 World Cup.

South Africa, India, Australia, England, New Zealand, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka

West Indies could have made the list. They missed the top eight ranks before the Champions Trophy and could not participate in the second most coveted cup of the ICC. When they lost to England in the very first match of the tournament, they had to step away giving way to Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka has been having a really bad time. They were completely dominated over by the visiting Indian Cricket team in all the forms of the game - test match, ODI and T20. They needed this piece of good news.

September 30th is the deadline. All the teams that have made it to the top eight have earned automatic qualification for the 2019 world cup. The teams that are not in this list have to fight it out among themselves. The ten team ICC world cup qualifier takes place in 2018 out of which two teams will join the top eight at the world cup tournament in 2019.

As of now, the four teams that will take part in the qualifier are West Indies, Afghanistan, Zimbabwe, and Ireland. The other teams will be decided by year-end.

India showed what they can do at Chepauk Stadium last night.

I could not get my hands on the tickets. Yup. Had to start with this line because it can only get better as you read on. The match was mind-blowing. The Men In Blue were bright and brilliant. They were down a bit but when they came back, they were strong and competitive. They did not let the rains get to them. They did not let the rain prevent them from winning. The Chennai Audience had the time of their lives indeed. It was good cricket. Even for those few at the stadium who supported the Aussies. The sea of blue chanting Dhoni’s name was resounding and well-deserved. It reminded all those who kept asking Captain Cool when he plans to retire that Dhoni makes the call, not them. The man’s still got it.
When Australia came in to bat, they were facing a target of 164 to be hit in 21 overs. Now I do not understand Duckworth or Lewis. Put them together and I am just lost. They came in, played around with the numbers and put a target based on how India batted, the number of wickets they lo…

Editor’s Pick (T20): India - Sri Lanka

A young and relatively inexperienced team, the players are full of enthu and raring to go as they face Sri Lanka at home tomorrow for their first T20 match of the Nidahas Trophy. I’ll tell you one thing. India is full of confidence. The boys have beaten the lions before in their own den. Not just beaten but a brutal defeat the Lions faced. Team Sri Lanka, on the other hand, will not take this team lightly. Yes, they are young. Yes, many players are playing for the country for the very first time. But that does not make the players any less lethal or skilled. In fact, the young players are likely to be passionate and aggressive from the word go.
India squad: Rohit Sharma(c), Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul, Suresh Raina, Manish Pandey, Dinesh Karthik, Deepak Hooda, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Vijay Shankar, Shardul Thakur, Jaydev Unadkat, Mohammed Siraj, Rishabh Pant Sri Lanka squad: Dinesh Chandimal(c), Upul Tharanga, Danushka Gunathilaka, Kusal Mendis, Dasun Shanaka, …

Editor’s Pick(TNPL): Karaikudi Kaalai - Tuti Patriots

Currently on top of the table with two wins from two matches and entering this year’s tournament as the defending champs, Tuti Patriots come off as the obvious favourite. Karaikudi Kaalai, third on the table with one win from two matches and fifth from last year, they will want to show that they can be on top as well. KK lost their first match but came back strong to defeat Madurai. Vishal Vaidya helped pull it off. S Anirudha also matched with his contribution. Badrinath has it in him to help lead his team to victory.
