Editor's Pick (PKL FINALS): Gujarat - Patna

The finals are finally here. The match we have all been waiting for since forever. The tournament lasted three months. Gujarat and Patna have come out on top. It has been months of struggle and the top two teams most definitely deserve to be here. Let’s talk a bit about the two teams.


Patna
Patna Pirates coach, Ram Mehar Singh is in a fab mood. He has done well for his team. This is the team’s third straight final. Pardeep Narwal, one of the highest scorers of the team, picked up a five point raid early in the game to give Patna the much needed early breakthrough. Early points in the game give the players a morale boost that helps them play better with the right frame of mind. They gave Bengal no chance afterward. 47-44 was the score. Seems a rather close one, yes? With 23 raid points in the semis, Pardeep is going to be the star of the finals. He hit a personal record when he became the first player to cross 600 points in PKL.
Coach stated that he was one of the tigers of the team. The other one is Monu. With 1751 points on the app and a very high potential of putting the opponent in place, Monu is another good asset to your lineup.
Patna Pirates take on a side that they are yet to beat. Gujarat Fortune Giants. Patna coach looks extremely confident. Over confident to some.


Gujarat
Gujarat Fortune Giants have been the class topper from the first day of the tournament. They are indeed a good team with consistent performance. If anything, they have to watch out for Pardeep Narwal, the biggest obstacle. With Sukesh Hegde as the captain and Manpreet Singh as the coach, both have taken on Patna on and off the field respectively. One with action and the other with words. Coach believes that if you have a good strategy and simply concentrate on its execution, you have your work cut out for you. He does make sense, doesn’t he?

Gujarat Fortune Giants - Squad strength: 18 (15 Indian, 3 Overseas)
Defenders – Abozar Mighani, C Kalai Arasan, Fazel Atrachali, Vikas Kale, Manoj Kumar, Parvesh Bhainswal, Sunil Kumar
Raiders –  Sukesh Hegde, Mahendra Rajput, Sachin, Amit Rathi, Dange Sultan, Pawan Kumar, Rakesh Narwal, Chandran Ranjit
All Rounders – Seong Ryeol Kim, Mahipal Narwal, Rohit Gulia
Patna Pirates - Squad strength: 18 (16 Indian, 2 Overseas)
Defenders –  Vishal Mane, Sachin Shingade, Jaideep, Manish Kumar, Satish, Sandeep, Virender Singh
Raiders – Vijay, Monu Goyat, Pardeep Narwal, Md. Zakir Hossain, Vikas Jaglan, Vinod Kumar, Vishnu Uthaman, Jawahar
All Rounders –  Mohammad Maghsoudlou, Parveen Birwal, Arvind Kumar


My lineup
AR: Jawahar
DF: Fazel Atrachali, Jaideep, Sunil Kumar, Abozar Mighani
RA: Pardeep Narwal, Monu Goyat / Mahendar Rajput


Good luck.

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 …
