Editor's Pick (T20): Pakistan - Sri Lanka

I just wrote the blog for the other match - Bangladesh versus South Africa. And I find myself writing the same thing because Bangladesh had lost all the previous matches and now same with Sri Lanka. To be fair, they did win both the test matches, played in UAE. Pakistan won all five ODI. by fairly good margins at that. The T20 matches begin. Three of them. The third of which takes place in Lahore. That was on the minds of the Sri Lankan players who are still scarred by what happened many years ago. Enough has been said about it.
Let’s talk cricket now.
This is Thisara Perera’s chance to prove his skill and capacity as the captain. With most of the regular players out, Perera’s team is a fairly young and inexperienced side. Perera hopes to lead with example and score well. His highest score is 38. Not at all a good sign.
Pakistan. Amir is back to the side. Sohail Khan Absent.

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.

Champions Trophy - India is the team to beat

They say tough times brings teams together.  They say adversity brings out the best in us.  Looks like that is what is happening to Team India in the ongoing Champions Trophy in the UK.   AlI the talk about match fixing and spot fixing and conflict of interest seems to be bringing out the best in team India.  I am writing this blog just ahead of the semi finals where India will play Sri Lanka.  But got to say this - looks like team India is firing on all cylinders.  I have never seen the Indian team perform so commandingly well in a tournament before - especially one played outside the sub-continent.  All aspects of the Indian team seems to be clicking well and India is clearly the best team in the tournament so far.
Our bowling is superb, with the exception of Ishanth Sharma.   Bhuvaneshwar Kumar continues to impress one and all - the amazing thing is the carry he gets even when he is bowling around 130 kmph.  I don't think it is because of the wickets alone - I feel the carry he …
