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.

TNPL - A Brief Rundown

Based on the stupendously successful Indian Premier League is the Tamil Nadu Premier League. This Indian T20 cricket league has been established by the Tamil Nadu State Cricket Association to bring out more and more Natarajans and Washingtons who otherwise do not get a chance to showcase their skill and talent in the world of Cricket. The inaugural edition of the TNPL took place in 2016 and received unexpected and unprecedented success and love. There was a brilliant batch of young men who came forward and made an event out of the first season of TNPL. Venues  India Cements Ground, Thirunelveli NPR College Ground, Dindigul  MA Chitambaram Stadium, Chennai  Changes The purpose of every organization is to make it bigger and better. TNPL is no exception. At the inaugural TNPL 2016, there were the traditional two semifinals and one final. This year will see a format similar to IPL. The finalists are decided by two qualifiers along with one eliminator. This format has pr

Editor’s Pick(PKL)

Four more days of Kabaddi, a teeny break and the next round commences on October 23rd. The super playoffs. All this hard work only for that. A look at the point table will give you an idea about who COULD go to the next level. Course anything could happen in the last minute. Anyone could topple. You remember the havoc Bangladesh created during the Champions Trophy. They threw out the big guns. I mean, they probably stopped West Indies from qualifying too, come to think of it. Back to Kabaddi. Zone A is still topped by Gujarat followed by Haryana and Pune. The other three teams - Mumbai, Jaipur and Delhi. Zone B, Bengal take the lead followed by Patna and UP. Today’s match-UP meets Bengaluru. UP is third and are doing very good for themselves. Bengaluru, fifth on the table, don’t really look like they have a chance. Only thing they do want to do now is walk out with a smile saying yes, we tried. UP Yoddha - Squad strength: 18 (16 Indian, 2 Overseas) Defenders – Jeeva Kumar, Ha

From all of us Fans to Players & Officials: Please don't treat us with kid gloves

As any fan will tell you, we not just love, but understand the sport and our teams like no one else. And that’s also why they keep bankrolling the big fat salaries of the players, the profits of the clubs and the boondoggle of officials. The recently concluded test match raised, in my mind, three instances where the thought process seems to be – it is OK for us to handle it, but it is too hot for fans . Common, now, please don’t treat us with kid gloves. One: The first one, inevitably, is about the DRS and taking the dugouts inputs in it. The rules are clear – the decision to ask for a decision review stays with the players on the field. Within a few seconds of the umpires’ decision, the batting team can dispute an out decision or the bowling team can dispute a not-out decision, without consulting with anyone outside the playing field. The controversy of Smith’s ‘brain-fade’ and Kohli’s allegations have played out ad nauseam on TV and cyberspace, so I will spare you that
