Editor's Pick (ODI): South Africa - Bangladesh

The third and final ODI is here. South Africa lead the series so far 2-0. Many really would find that surprising because Bangladesh have truly done well for themselves recently. I still think they have it in them to get to the top five of the ICC ranking some day. There are still two T20 matches coming up after this. Never say never. Yes?


The second ODI - South Africa won by 104 runs. That is a really big margin even for a team like Bangladesh. What went wrong? Bangladesh let SA hit too many runs. The bowlers could not get their breaks. That really makes all the difference in the world. Regular falling of the wickets helps break the rhythm and the batting team score is restricted. They literally handed over the game to SA.
AB De Villiers walked away with the man of the match award. He deserved it thanks to his incredible 176 runs. He literally contributed to half the runs on board. That is something. Amla’s 85 and Kock’s 46 were the only other contributors. Bangladesh’s Rubel took 4 wickets and gave away 62 runs. Bangladesh did not give up. But it was just not enough. Imrul and M Rahim hit well.

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
