India comes back with a bang. Level Series.

We Won !!!!!!





We don’t do subtle, do we? When we lose we lose
quite badly. When we win, we make sure everyone
sits up and takes notice. Yesterday’s match was won
with a bang. Everything from the batting, the bowling,
the wicketkeeping and the fielding all take the cake.
I don’t even know where to start. The series has been
leveled. The next match decides the fate of the series.
That makes the series all the more exciting.
Let’s see how the match yesterday was. Rohit Sharma.
The man. He was the hero of the day. He made
spectators out of the the fielders of the opposition.
They could do nothing but watch the ball
make its way to the boundaries and across it. All Sri
Lanka did was bowl and then bring the ball back
from outside of the stadium to bowl some more. It
was his third double ton. And the only player in the
history of the game to have done so.
India bounced back after what was considered as a
debacle in the first ODI. And we are more than
likely to forget it once India wins the ODI Series.
Yes there is still that clause.

When Sri Lanka walked in, they not only had a
mammoth total of 392, their bowlers, their morale
and everything else took a massive hit. Early
wickets fell. From then on it only seemed like a
matter of time when suddenly Sri Lanka gained
momentum towards the end. While a win was
impossible, the margin of defeat was definitely
reduced. That helps, you know. The margin was
still high. 141. But it could have been way worse.
Angelo Mathews’ lone fight will not be unnoticed.

Rohit Sharma’s double ton was supported by
Shreyas Iyer’s 88 and Shikar Dhawan’s 68. India
was on a roll from the first delivery. They did take
the first defeat rather badly. And they should.
Whatever helps them get back into the game.
Another point to be noticed especially those critics
who think Dhoni’s age matters. His sprinting between
the wickets was a delight to watch. Every run matters.
And Captain Cool took every chance he could get to
help increase the total of the team.
End of the day, Rohit Sharma not only joined the party,
he was the party. We look forward to the third ODI on
17th December. Get your team ready for Fantain
Fantasy Sports lineup on the app as well.

We have more coming up for you. Get Ready.
You will be impressed.

TNPL - A Brief Rundown

Based on the stupendously successful Indian Premier League is the Tamil Nadu Premier League. This Indian T20 cricket league has been established by the Tamil Nadu State Cricket Association to bring out more and more Natarajans and Washingtons who otherwise do not get a chance to showcase their skill and talent in the world of Cricket. The inaugural edition of the TNPL took place in 2016 and received unexpected and unprecedented success and love. There was a brilliant batch of young men who came forward and made an event out of the first season of TNPL.

The purpose of every organization is to make it bigger and better. TNPL is no exception. At the inaugural TNPL 2016, there were the traditional two semifinals and one final. This year will see a format similar to IPL. The finalists are decided by two qualifiers along with one eliminator. This format has proven to be more exciting.…

Editors Pick ( PKL)

Not much cricket happening for the next two days. More time for Kabaddi now. We are in the month of October. Closer to the next round. The status of the teams on the Pro Kabaddi table matter big time now. It is time for the teams to keep an eye on their ranks all the time now. No pressure :)

Let’s take a look at the table. The top three teams in each zone make it to the next level. The points were very close at one point and then apart. Some teams have been super consistent doing well and others, consistently at the bottom of the table. Team A has four teams who are fighting for the next level big time - Gujarat Fortune Giants, Haryana Steelers, Puneri Paltan and U Mumba. Jaipur Pink Panthers and Dabang Delhi are closer to the bottom and will have to do really really well to make a difference. Zone B - the bottom two teams - Bengaluru Bulls and Tamil Thalaivas are not looking too hot. The top four teams are Patna Pirates, Bengal Warriors, U.P.Yoddha and Telugu Titans.

In a crux, any o…

Editor’s Pick (Women’s Cricket): India - West Indies

India, fourth on the table, has won her first game while West Indies lost. India has a lot to prove for her country. That She deserves as much love and support as the men in blue. Sad that She has to, but circumstances demand it. West Indies on the other hand are looking for a win to kick start their journey to the final.
It is a win-win situation for both the teams. But then, I want my fantasy lineup to win too. So, for this lineup, I have looked up not only the selection percentage generated by fans’ choice, but also the players’ performance in this tournament so far.
My Team 
-Chedean Nation -Mithali Raj -Smriti Mandhana -Punam Raut -Ekta Bisht -Shakera Salman -Shamilia Connel -Poonam Yadav -Meriss Aguilleira -Deepti Sharma -Harmanpreet kaur Let’s hope this clicks. Will you agree with it? Let’s hear some opinions shall we?
