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.

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 proven to be more exciting.…

Editors Pick ( PKL)

Not much cricket happening for the next two days. More time for Kabaddi now. We are in the month of October. Closer to the next round. The status of the teams on the Pro Kabaddi table matter big time now. It is time for the teams to keep an eye on their ranks all the time now. No pressure :)

Let’s take a look at the table. The top three teams in each zone make it to the next level. The points were very close at one point and then apart. Some teams have been super consistent doing well and others, consistently at the bottom of the table. Team A has four teams who are fighting for the next level big time - Gujarat Fortune Giants, Haryana Steelers, Puneri Paltan and U Mumba. Jaipur Pink Panthers and Dabang Delhi are closer to the bottom and will have to do really really well to make a difference. Zone B - the bottom two teams - Bengaluru Bulls and Tamil Thalaivas are not looking too hot. The top four teams are Patna Pirates, Bengal Warriors, U.P.Yoddha and Telugu Titans.

In a crux, any o…
