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. 

My lineup
Wicket-Keeper
Jos Buttler
Bowlers
Adil Rashid
Liam Plunkett
Mitchell Starc
Josh Hazlewood
Batsmen
Jason Roy
Joe Root
Alex Hales
David Warner
Marcus Stoinis
Mitchell Marsh

Editor's Pick (t20): India - South Africa

Whoever said ‘don’t make a habit out of it’ was not referring to winning. I do love writing ‘India won’ blogs and it is a pleasure to make a habit out of it as well. The Indian cricket team is most definitely making sure that the habit sticks. We are more than just on a roll in South Africa. We have found what clicks for us and we are making use of it. The best part is that almost all the players are performing. So we are actually open to experimenting and bringing in fresh faces. This way, not only do all the boys get the taste of playing, team South Africa is unable to get used to any one player long enough to figure out the style and a way to defeat it. Way to go Ravi Shastri and Virat Kohli. Talking about team selection. How is your selection going? Are you also listening to our audio podcast and getting that added advantage?
Let's get back to the matches. We lost the test matches. But we have won the ODI series in a landslide way. And are one up in the T20 series. We are repla…

Editor’s Pick(CPL): Trinbago Knight Riders vs Barbados Tridents

The previous match, Trinbago Knight Riders vs Guyana Amazon Warriors, saw the Knight Riders win by seven wickets. Played at Queen's Park Oval, Port of Spain, Trinidad, Chasing a target of 158, TKR scored 162 in 19 overs. Colin Munro, their highest scorer, hit 70 runs. It was a fairly one-sided match with TKR staying on top for most parts.
The Knight Riders are right on top of the table, with three wins and one loss from four matches played. Their run rate of +1.680 will matter, for sure. DLS has been applied in this tournament and can be applied again. Barbados Tridents come second on the table with two wins from three matches. They earlier beat St Lucas Stars by 21 runs (DLS Method). This will be a close match, considering that both teams are in good form.
Barbados Tridents (From): Dwayne Smith, Kane Williamson, Shoaib Malik, Kieron Pollard(c), Nicholas Pooran(w), Christopher Barnwell, Akeal Hosein, Wayne Parnell, Imran Khan, Ravi Rampaul, Wahab Riaz, Raymon Reifer, Damion Jacobs…

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.

Changes
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.…
