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. Venues  India Cements Ground, Thirunelveli NPR College Ground, Dindigul  MA Chitambaram Stadium, Chennai  Changes 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 pr

Editor’s Pick(PKL)

Four more days of Kabaddi, a teeny break and the next round commences on October 23rd. The super playoffs. All this hard work only for that. A look at the point table will give you an idea about who COULD go to the next level. Course anything could happen in the last minute. Anyone could topple. You remember the havoc Bangladesh created during the Champions Trophy. They threw out the big guns. I mean, they probably stopped West Indies from qualifying too, come to think of it. Back to Kabaddi. Zone A is still topped by Gujarat followed by Haryana and Pune. The other three teams - Mumbai, Jaipur and Delhi. Zone B, Bengal take the lead followed by Patna and UP. Today’s match-UP meets Bengaluru. UP is third and are doing very good for themselves. Bengaluru, fifth on the table, don’t really look like they have a chance. Only thing they do want to do now is walk out with a smile saying yes, we tried. UP Yoddha - Squad strength: 18 (16 Indian, 2 Overseas) Defenders – Jeeva Kumar, Ha

From all of us Fans to Players & Officials: Please don't treat us with kid gloves

As any fan will tell you, we not just love, but understand the sport and our teams like no one else. And that’s also why they keep bankrolling the big fat salaries of the players, the profits of the clubs and the boondoggle of officials. The recently concluded test match raised, in my mind, three instances where the thought process seems to be – it is OK for us to handle it, but it is too hot for fans . Common, now, please don’t treat us with kid gloves. One: The first one, inevitably, is about the DRS and taking the dugouts inputs in it. The rules are clear – the decision to ask for a decision review stays with the players on the field. Within a few seconds of the umpires’ decision, the batting team can dispute an out decision or the bowling team can dispute a not-out decision, without consulting with anyone outside the playing field. The controversy of Smith’s ‘brain-fade’ and Kohli’s allegations have played out ad nauseam on TV and cyberspace, so I will spare you that
