Editor's Pick (Test): West Indies - Zimbabwe

Sometimes you learn from your mistakes. Sometimes you stand by your decision and hope things will get better. That is what West Indies is doing. They have not changed their team. The team that lost a 3-match test series and a 5 match ODI series to England. The selector defends decision saying the team has learnt from their mistakes and will perform better.
TIme will tell eh?
Jason Holder (capt), Kraigg Brathwaite (vice capt), Devendra Bishoo, Jermaine Blackwood, Roston Chase, Miguel Cummins, Shane Dowrich, Shannon Gabriel, Shimron Hetmyer, Kyle Hope, Shai Hope, Alzarri Joseph, Kieran Powell, Raymon Reifer, Kemar Roach.


Brendan Taylor is part of the Zimbabwe team. Him and Kyle Jarvis. They wanted to play the county cricket in England and opted out of the national team. They are back now. Taylor is excited to wear the test cap after a gap of almost three years. Graeme Cremer will lead the squad. This team has made many changes. First cappers - Tendai Chisoro and Solomon Mire and wicketkeeper Nyasha Mayavo. Bowlers Chamu Chibhabha and Michael Chinouya are also recalled.

This is the first of the two test series taking place as West Indies Tour Zimbabwe. Who will win? The team with the new look or the one with the same old team of young players?
Conditions are not very pace-friendly. So spinners in?

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.  Key Points  MI has never won their opener since 2013. This was Chennai's first win against MI in an opener of this T20 League  DRS used in the league for the first time  Bravo : It was a great team effort. I want to dedicate this win to the CSK fan, they have waited long for
