Editor's Pick (ODI): India - New Zealand

With Arjun Tendulkar breaking the internet with his bowling at the nets during the practice session, the series between India and New Zealand is gaining more popularity. Arjun, son of legendary batsmen Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar, is here to make his mark in the world of Cricket. Now, we hope we are fair to him and judge him for his cricketing skills and not because he is the son of the Little Master. That is hard, yes. But we really must not see him for anything else except what he does on the grounds. When he does wear the Indian Cap, we hope to be adult enough to treat him right.


Moving on to the other men in blue. Led by Virat Kohli, the Indian Team welcomes the visiting NZ team and take them on in three ODI matches and 3 T20s. India is in good form and good spirits after defeating the Australians in a very convincing manner. The Kiwis will want to defeat India in India. Haha. Let’s see what they got. And take them on.


India (ODI squad): Virat Kohli (Captain), Rohit Sharma (vice-captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik, MS Dhoni (wicketkeeper), Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shardul Thakur
New Zealand (ODI squad): Kane Williamson (Captain), Trent Boult, Colin de Grandhomme, Martin Guptill, Matt Henry, Tom Latham, Henry Nicholls, Adam Milne, Colin Munro, Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor, George Worker.
Venue is Mumbai. Quite a popular stadium. Has its share of drama and history. Low chance of rain. Swing Bowlers have a good chance

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

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…

Editor’s Pick (Women’s Cricket): India - West Indies

India, fourth on the table, has won her first game while West Indies lost. India has a lot to prove for her country. That She deserves as much love and support as the men in blue. Sad that She has to, but circumstances demand it. West Indies on the other hand are looking for a win to kick start their journey to the final.
It is a win-win situation for both the teams. But then, I want my fantasy lineup to win too. So, for this lineup, I have looked up not only the selection percentage generated by fans’ choice, but also the players’ performance in this tournament so far.
My Team 
-Chedean Nation -Mithali Raj -Smriti Mandhana -Punam Raut -Ekta Bisht -Shakera Salman -Shamilia Connel -Poonam Yadav -Meriss Aguilleira -Deepti Sharma -Harmanpreet kaur Let’s hope this clicks. Will you agree with it? Let’s hear some opinions shall we?
