Editor's Pick (ODI): England - Australia

Five ODI series lined up for the two biggies this month. The first one took place on the 14th. England
came out on top winning by 5 wickets. A high scoring match, the Aussies hit a massive 304 runs in
50 overs. England hit the target with an over and a delivery to spare. It was a mind blowing performance, simply put. Jason Roy, the man of the match, broke a few records on the way. -
Highest individual score by an Eng batsman
Highest individual score at the MCG
Highest individual score by a visiting batsman in a run chase in Australia
Highest individual score in a run chase against Australia




This is England’s highest successful run-chase in Australia. No better way to start a five match ODI
series, is there?


This was the playing squad for the first OD


Austraia :Aaron Finch, David Warner, Tim Paine (wk), Steven Smith (c), Mitchell Marsh, Mitchell Starc,
Pat Cummins, Travis Head, Adam Zampa, Marcus Stoinis, Andrew Tye Bench:Cameron White,
Josh Hazlewood, Jhye Richardson
England :Liam Plunkett, Eoin Morgan (c), Adil Rashid, Jos Buttler (wk), Jonny Bairstow, Jason Roy,
Chris Woakes, Moeen Ali, Alex Hales, Joe Root, Mark Wood
Bench:David Willey, Sam Billings, Jake Ball, Tom Curran


This match takes place at The Gabba, Brisbane. With a highest score of 324 and a highest successful
chase of 309 (both by Australia), they will look forward to turning the tables. Aaron Finch will want to
make his century count this time.
The winners of the first ODI had Aaron Finch, Jason Roy and Liam Plunket right on top of their list.
Pat Cummins followed right behind. Though Jason Roy walked away with all the glory, Aaron Finch
topped our Fantasy Points score with a massive 165. Naming them captain and vice captain
respectively is the icing on your Fantasy Cricket Cake. I had named Aaron Finch as my VC and I did
really well indeed.


My lineup
Wicket-Keeper
Tim Paine
Jos Buttler
Bowlers
Pat Cummins
Liam Plunkett
Mitchell Starc

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?
