First match - Khulna Titans meets Sylhet Sixers. Fourth rank meets second rank. Sixers has played five matches and won three. Titans - four matches and has won two. Not that much of a difference that way. Course it is pointless to talk about run rate so early in the day so let’s not.

India showed what they can do at Chepauk Stadium last night.

I could not get my hands on the tickets. Yup. Had to start with this line because it can only get better as you read on. The match was mind-blowing. The Men In Blue were bright and brilliant. They were down a bit but when they came back, they were strong and competitive. They did not let the rains get to them. They did not let the rain prevent them from winning. The Chennai Audience had the time of their lives indeed. It was good cricket. Even for those few at the stadium who supported the Aussies. The sea of blue chanting Dhoni’s name was resounding and well-deserved. It reminded all those who kept asking Captain Cool when he plans to retire that Dhoni makes the call, not them. The man’s still got it.
When Australia came in to bat, they were facing a target of 164 to be hit in 21 overs. Now I do not understand Duckworth or Lewis. Put them together and I am just lost. They came in, played around with the numbers and put a target based on how India batted, the number of wickets they lo…

Editor’s Pick (T20): India - Sri Lanka

A young and relatively inexperienced team, the players are full of enthu and raring to go as they face Sri Lanka at home tomorrow for their first T20 match of the Nidahas Trophy. I’ll tell you one thing. India is full of confidence. The boys have beaten the lions before in their own den. Not just beaten but a brutal defeat the Lions faced. Team Sri Lanka, on the other hand, will not take this team lightly. Yes, they are young. Yes, many players are playing for the country for the very first time. But that does not make the players any less lethal or skilled. In fact, the young players are likely to be passionate and aggressive from the word go.

Editor’s Pick(TNPL): Karaikudi Kaalai - Tuti Patriots

Currently on top of the table with two wins from two matches and entering this year’s tournament as the defending champs, Tuti Patriots come off as the obvious favourite. Karaikudi Kaalai, third on the table with one win from two matches and fifth from last year, they will want to show that they can be on top as well. KK lost their first match but came back strong to defeat Madurai. Vishal Vaidya helped pull it off. S Anirudha also matched with his contribution. Badrinath has it in him to help lead his team to victory.
