Editor's Pick (ODI): England - Australia

Australia and England have two more matches of the five match ODI series left. England have so far dominated over the English by winning all the three matches. This is inspite of the fact that the matches are taking place in Australia. Sri Lanka will know exactly what I am talking about. Australia beaten like this at home will most definitely not go down well. Not with the Aussie team and not with the Aussie fans. They are looking to have a consolation victory in the fourth ODI tomorrow to avoid a complete whitewash.

The Australian team are in trouble in reality. A big blow took place when in-form opener Aaron Finch was ruled out due to hamstring injury. On the fantain app he has scored a massive 220.50 points. The first ODI saw 107 runs off of his bat, the second, 106 and 62 from the third. The Aussies will more than just miss him.

So instead of him, you might want to consider Travis head in your lineup. The word out there is that he will play the fifth ODI too if Aaron Finch is not fine by then. England has already secured the series 3-0 with two games left to play. The ODI series will be followed by a tri-nation T20I series,also 1involving New Zealand.

So let’s take a look at this match. What would the ideal lineup be for Fantain Fantasy Cricket?
Ruling out Aaron Finch, you should definitely have Mitchell Marsh and Marcus Stoinis. Steven Smith needs to improve on his performance. The third ODI saw him score 45. Coming down to the bowlers, Joe Root is definitely in. He not only bats but also has bowled and taken wickets. Mitchell Starc had a four wicket haul. He’s in. Adil Rashid and Joe Root of England
Jason Roy has been on a fabulous journey, breaking records on the way in this tournament. With a salary of 8 points is definitely worth every penny. He has earned 164 points on the app. Marsh with 8 salary points is another steal for your lineup. His performance is off the charts considering. 
The two 11 salary expensive players on my lineup are Joe Root and Chris Woakes. The rest cost only 9.

Jos Buttler

India showed what they can do at Chepauk Stadium last night.

I could not get my hands on the tickets. Yup. Had to start with this line because it can only get better as you read on. The match was mind-blowing. The Men In Blue were bright and brilliant. They were down a bit but when they came back, they were strong and competitive. They did not let the rains get to them. They did not let the rain prevent them from winning. The Chennai Audience had the time of their lives indeed. It was good cricket. Even for those few at the stadium who supported the Aussies. The sea of blue chanting Dhoni’s name was resounding and well-deserved. It reminded all those who kept asking Captain Cool when he plans to retire that Dhoni makes the call, not them. The man’s still got it.
When Australia came in to bat, they were facing a target of 164 to be hit in 21 overs. Now I do not understand Duckworth or Lewis. Put them together and I am just lost. They came in, played around with the numbers and put a target based on how India batted, the number of wickets they lo…

Editor’s Pick (T20): India - Sri Lanka

A young and relatively inexperienced team, the players are full of enthu and raring to go as they face Sri Lanka at home tomorrow for their first T20 match of the Nidahas Trophy. I’ll tell you one thing. India is full of confidence. The boys have beaten the lions before in their own den. Not just beaten but a brutal defeat the Lions faced. Team Sri Lanka, on the other hand, will not take this team lightly. Yes, they are young. Yes, many players are playing for the country for the very first time. But that does not make the players any less lethal or skilled. In fact, the young players are likely to be passionate and aggressive from the word go.
India squad: Rohit Sharma(c), Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul, Suresh Raina, Manish Pandey, Dinesh Karthik, Deepak Hooda, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Vijay Shankar, Shardul Thakur, Jaydev Unadkat, Mohammed Siraj, Rishabh Pant Sri Lanka squad: Dinesh Chandimal(c), Upul Tharanga, Danushka Gunathilaka, Kusal Mendis, Dasun Shanaka, …

Editor’s Pick(TNPL): Karaikudi Kaalai - Tuti Patriots

Currently on top of the table with two wins from two matches and entering this year’s tournament as the defending champs, Tuti Patriots come off as the obvious favourite. Karaikudi Kaalai, third on the table with one win from two matches and fifth from last year, they will want to show that they can be on top as well. KK lost their first match but came back strong to defeat Madurai. Vishal Vaidya helped pull it off. S Anirudha also matched with his contribution. Badrinath has it in him to help lead his team to victory.
