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

Jason Roy
Joe Root

I have joined not just the paid pool, but the free pool as well. Go on, try both.

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.…
