Editor's Pick (ODI): Bangladesh - Zimbabwe

Having started on 15th January 2018, four matches have taken place in the tri-series between Bangladesh, Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka. I am not surprised at the status of the current points table. Bangladesh is at the top with two wins from both matches played. Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka have played three matches each with just one win to their credit. The run rates are miserably low. Bangladesh on the other hand has an astounding 2.9850 run rate to their credit.


I have always maintained that this team -
Bangladesh - should not be written off easy. They
have all that it takes to make it up the ICC world
ranking. It is just a matter of time.


Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe have met each other
twice in these series. 1-1. Bangladesh has beaten
Zimbabwe in their first encounter by eight wickets
. The second is tomorrow. In a very low scoring
match, Zimbabwe hit only 170 and lost all wickets.
Bangladesh smoothly made it to the target in less
than 29 overs. That is the secret of their astounding
run rate. Making it to the target using very little
overs. Bad day for Zimbabwe that was.


Check out my other blog to see how I picked the
teams for the match between Sri Lanka and
Zimbabwe.

Chennai beats Mumbai and clinch thriller

It is not just about coming back. It is about the impact you make in the process. And Chennai team knows how to with a bang.  The Chennai team beat the home team by one wicket in what was an absolute sit-at-the-end-of-the-chair thriller. It was one of the best chases the tournament has seen and it most definitely won't be the last. The player who made the difference in the end - Jadhav - literally came back from the dead after retiring hurt to take his team to the finish line by hitting the ball in style with a six and a four.  Batting on one leg and playing an absolutely unbelievable shot, this player leveled the scores first with a six and finished the match with a four. 
Key Points  MI has never won their opener since 2013.This was Chennai's first win against MI in an opener of this T20 League DRS used in the league for the first time Bravo: It was a great team effort. I want to dedicate this win to the CSK fan, they have waited long for it. I came very early. I …

Champions Trophy - India is the team to beat

They say tough times brings teams together.  They say adversity brings out the best in us.  Looks like that is what is happening to Team India in the ongoing Champions Trophy in the UK.   AlI the talk about match fixing and spot fixing and conflict of interest seems to be bringing out the best in team India.  I am writing this blog just ahead of the semi finals where India will play Sri Lanka.  But got to say this - looks like team India is firing on all cylinders.  I have never seen the Indian team perform so commandingly well in a tournament before - especially one played outside the sub-continent.  All aspects of the Indian team seems to be clicking well and India is clearly the best team in the tournament so far.
Our bowling is superb, with the exception of Ishanth Sharma.   Bhuvaneshwar Kumar continues to impress one and all - the amazing thing is the carry he gets even when he is bowling around 130 kmph.  I don't think it is because of the wickets alone - I feel the carry he …
