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.

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.
Key players Smriti Mandhana H Kaur Jhulan Goswami J Rodrigues Pooja Vastrakar
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.…
