Editor’s Pick (T20): India - Australia

India is back to being on top. And boy, it’s just a wonderful feeling. A wonderful place to be, isn’t it? India also won the first T20 at Ranchi. It was a rain interrupted match. Sigh. When will those stop? India beat Australia by nine wickets. This is the seventh consecutive win for India in T20. I am going to try to not bring this up. I was honestly a little down when India lost what could have been their tenth consecutive win in ODI format. Well the heart wants what the heart wants, yes?

Second T20. Steven Smith is back home thanks to his shoulder injury. The Aussies look to keep the series alive while India just wanna win all the way. This is a three match T20 series out of which India has won the first. This is also the first international match at The new Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati. The ground also would want to be at their best. Let’s hope it’s a good day weather wise. The rains are honestly a rain on the parade.

Chennai beats Mumbai and clinch thriller

It is not just about coming back. It is about the impact you make in the process. And Chennai team knows how to with a bang.  The Chennai team beat the home team by one wicket in what was an absolute sit-at-the-end-of-the-chair thriller. It was one of the best chases the tournament has seen and it most definitely won't be the last. The player who made the difference in the end - Jadhav - literally came back from the dead after retiring hurt to take his team to the finish line by hitting the ball in style with a six and a four.  Batting on one leg and playing an absolutely unbelievable shot, this player leveled the scores first with a six and finished the match with a four.

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

The table is currently in a very surprising situation. Most expected Sri Lanka to show Bangladesh the door. But here they are still standing up and shining. The tournament is wide open. Today’s match is between India and Sri Lanka. The stakes are much higher now that Bangladesh is more feared than before. The teams would not want to risk anything at this point. Earlier I had said that they might experiment with the lineup and give everyone a chance. Now it will be more than giving people a chance. They will strategize. The Indian team will be open to experimentation, but not at the cost of results.

The untested ones are Deepak Hooda, KL Rahul, and Axar Patel. India has lost to Sri Lanka in their first encounter of this tournament. They will want to be wary because another defeat could cost them the tournament itself. So, not all the new players will see the light today.
A lot depends on Rohit Sharma today. Shikhar Dhawan, Suresh Raina, Manish Pandey and Dinesh Karthik will chip in too.…

Blog Time: Bangladesh Beats Sri Lanka

Bangladesh defeated Sri Lanka in their own den. The Lions losing to India was somewhat alright. I mean it is India. And the current team is one of the best teams in the world. They also defeated South Africa in South Africa. But Sri Lanka losing to Bangladesh in Sri Lanka will be extremely hard to digest. A lot of people were surprised. Now I have the habit of rooting for the underdogs and I had a feeling that Bangladesh had it in them. It was nice to be able to tell others, “I told you that Bangladesh could win”.

What did happen? Sri Lanka came in to bat first and hit a solid 214 runs in 20 overs. It was a very good score indeed. Perera’s 74 along with Kusal Mendis’s 57 took the runs to a competitive level. It seemed like a sure-fire win for the lions. A very fair assumption to make too. And then came in Bangladesh. From the word go, they were on the track to victory. The first wicket fell at 74. Second at 100. Third at 151. By the time the fifth wicket fell, the contributions made by…
