Editor's Pick (Test): England - Australia

First test - Australia won by 10 wickets
Second test - Australia won by 120 runs
Third test - Australia won by an innings and 41 runs


Fourth test tomorrow at the Melbourne Cricket
Ground. A very popular ground as is. With
Australia on a roll, the ground is going to be
supercharged with the joy and the excitement.
Especially with Boxing day happening. The day
after Christmas. It is a public holiday. It is an
unusual name, yes. Even though the series has
been decided, the locals will come to the
stadium in big groups to support their team.
That is the beauty of this game. It will call out
to the true cricket fans, come what may.


Back to cricket. England is hoping not to fall
apart again. They have had a rough season
so far. The question has been raised and is
floating all over the internet though. What
would have happened if the match was taking
place in England.
News. Root said that Wood and Crane were
considered to be in the team. Fast Bowler
Tom Curran will make his test debut. Craig
Overton is injured. After he cracked his rib
in the third test, he has been ruled out. He
will be terribly missed. He did do really well
in what was otherwise considered as a
mediocre performance by the team. The
captain’s gut made the call and pulled in
Tom Curran. Can the gut be wrong? We will
know soon. England wants to add an extra
pace into their bowling attack. End of the day,
tough calls are made. If the captain is right,
he is praised. If it does not work out, he takes
the burden. Not easy being a captain.
Tendulkar will agree. Hence he said he didn’t
want that cap.


England XI: Joe Root (c), Alastair Cook,
Mark Stoneman, James Vince, Dawid Malan,
Chris Woakes, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Moeen Ali,
Tom Curran, Stuart Broad, James Anderson
Australia XI: Steve Smith (c), David Warner,
Cameron Bancroft, Usman Khawaja, Shaun
Marsh, Mitch Marsh, Tim Paine, Pat Cummins,
Nathan Lyon, Josh Hazlewood, Jackson Bird.

Key Players: India - England

When there is nothing left, you will play for pride. That is what India has to do tomorrow. Considering the fact that the match is taking place in Mumbai. Do it for them. Do it for us.  England and Australia will meet each other at the finals on 31st March. India and England are more than likely to go in with the same playing eleven.
India Terribly low on morale, the team will now have to give it their all. They need to know that they are much better than this.

England The team has been doing really well since day one. They will now consider this as a practice match. But they will want to win and go to the finals with confidence. They were thumped by Australia earlier in what can be called as a one-sided game. They want to win this tomorrow.

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

The table is currently in a very surprising situation. Most expected Sri Lanka to show Bangladesh the door. But here they are still standing up and shining. The tournament is wide open. Today’s match is between India and Sri Lanka. The stakes are much higher now that Bangladesh is more feared than before. The teams would not want to risk anything at this point. Earlier I had said that they might experiment with the lineup and give everyone a chance. Now it will be more than giving people a chance. They will strategize. The Indian team will be open to experimentation, but not at the cost of results.

The untested ones are Deepak Hooda, KL Rahul, and Axar Patel. India has lost to Sri Lanka in their first encounter of this tournament. They will want to be wary because another defeat could cost them the tournament itself. So, not all the new players will see the light today.
A lot depends on Rohit Sharma today. Shikhar Dhawan, Suresh Raina, Manish Pandey and Dinesh Karthik will chip in too.…
