Editor's Pick (T20): South Africa - Bangladesh

South Africa won by 333 runs. South Africa won by  an innings and 254 runs. South Africa won by 10 wickets. South Africa won by 104 runs. South Africa won by 200 runs.
This is the story up until now. Two test matches and three One Day International matches. All that is left is a two match T-20 series and two more chances for Bangladesh to try and win back some pride. Does not the universe believe in balance? Is it watching?


Bangladesh tried some changes in the leadership during the ODI hoping that would make a difference. It clearly did not. Now the players have to stay up and upbeat to fight through the rest of the tournament. Mental games have always been a part of sports. It must be a wholesome contribution from Bangladesh to see them win the next two matches. They must know that they do not have a choice but to bounce back. And hopefully in style. They know they have it in them. It is just the matter of getting an early breakthrough. A match winning opening partnership or early wickets.


From South Africa’s point of view, they are pretty much in the driver’s seat. In fact, it would be a very good idea to bring in rookies to see how they fit in the lineup and how they can stand up to the pressures of an international game. Even if is against a team that is low on morale.
News:  Faf du Plessis is currently suffering a back injury. He has been pulled out. JP Duminy will take the reigns. Amla is back too after a break in the last ODI. Robbie is a newbie who is in.
Bangladesh - Tamim Iqbal and Mustafizur Rahman are out. Injuries. Shafiul Islam and Mominul Haque are in as a backup.


Teams:
South Africa (From): Quinton de Kock(w), Hashim Amla, AB de Villiers, Jean-Paul Duminy(c), David Miller, Farhaan Behardien, Dwaine Pretorius, Andile Phehlukwayo, Tabraiz Shamsi, Dane Paterson, Beuran Hendricks, Aaron Phangiso, Mangaliso Mosehle, Robert Frylinck

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
