Editor's Pick - Bangladesh Premier League

Five matches on the app on 17th Nov. That is a lot of cricket for one day. Hey that’s good yes? Better the chances of us winning too. Right now, as I write this blog, India is batting against Sri Lanka. We have lost two wickets. Eight overs completed. Barely 20 runs on board. Heart in mouth syndrome. It’s Kolkatta for God’s sake. Good ground for batting. Rains keep interrupting. What a bore.


Oh well. It’s not raining in Bangladesh and South Africa. So let’s worry about the weather in Kolkatta later. Let’s take a look at our lineup on the Fantain Fantasy App.
Well actually it is raining in Bangladesh. The previous two matches abandoned due to rain.


First match of the day is at 1:30. Raajshahi Kings Vs Sylhet Sixers. The Sixers are second on the table with three wins from five matches. The Kings are at the bottom of the table with one win from four matches.

Fan Data Analytics: Key to drive sports company growth

Over the last several years, the buzz word in business and IT circles has been "big-data" and analytics. Many many articles and write-ups talk about them so I won't go into the details. You could get enough to last a lifetime with just the first few results of a Google search of these terms. But do you really know how it applies, specifically to a sports company? For long, sports franchises have been one of the biggest users of analytics. Before this was a buzz word, coaches and managers have relied up numbers and finding patterns in them to drive on-field performance. Indeed, the major leagues of the world have relied on performance analytics for everything from scouting for talent to calling the action on the field of play. But that never transcended to the off-field, more mundane but equally important task of managing the sports business. As more and more options come up vying for the fan's attention - live events, travel, other sports, TV, the Internet - the

Need for co-ed sports

Now, this is hardly a feminist piece. I am not here to tell you that women can do anything that men can and better too. One, you know it too. Two, this is hardly about women. I am not here to praise women and demand better rights. I am talking about the possibility that the entire field of sports can take a whole new meaning if gender is not made the criterion. So this is how the idea for the blog started. The Women’s Indian Cricket Team performed really well at the world cup this year. Mithali Raj praised her team for their hard work, persistence, and passion for the game. She also added that there should be an IPL tournament in the country for the women’s team now. Raj believes that the team’s fantastic game has increased the fan following for the women’s team as well and that they have earned their place here. While I am honestly not sure about an IPL tournament for women, it did get me thinking. Why not mixed sports? Now that girls play almost all the games that the guys do, w

Royal Challengers Bangalore - IPL 2014 team analysis

Here is a look at the RCB team for the 2014 IPL edition - and my take on it.         Chris Gayle, Virat Kohli, AB DeVilliers, Yuvraj Singh, Nic Maddinson, Vijay Zol are the batsmen in the team         Mitchell Starc, Varun Aaron, Ashok Dinda, Muthiah Muralidharan, Ravi Rampaul,  Harshal Patel,  Abu Nechim,  Shahab Jakati,  Sandeep Warrior, Yuzvendra Chahal are the bowlers         Albie Morkel, Sachin Rana, Tanmay Mishra are the allrounders         Parthiv Patel and Yogesh Takawale are the wicket keepers The strategy behind this team selection was very confusion at first.   But on careful analysis, I believe this might turn out to be one of the stronger teams in this year’s IPL. The team has a tremendous batting line up with Gayle, AB, Virat and Yuvaraj.   Throw in the big hitting Albie Morkel – this team will post huge scores, especially in good batting conditions – and win many matches just on the back of batting.   In the bowling department, the team seems to have
