Editor’s Pick (ODI): Afghanistan - Zimbabwe

While Afghanistan won both the T20 matches against Zimbabwe at Sharjah, the ODI matches so far have seen an equal performance. Afghanistan won the first match by 154 runs and Zimbabwe the second - by the same difference. Some coincidence that.

The matches are taking place at Sharjah. With a capacity of 27,000; this is indeed a high scoring stadium. Pakistan has scored a massive 364 runs against NZ on this very pitch.

Rahmat Shah has been consistent in his performance and is a must-have in your fantain fantasy lineup. Rashid Khan too. This bowler can truly spin the luck in his team’s favour. If you check the points these players have scored on the app, all the doubts will be cleared.
Zimbabwe had to wait a long time for their first win. They look to continue this and win their second match tomorrow.

Congrats Akki on your win. This was the lineup.
Winning lineup - S Raza, Graeme Cremer, D Zadran, Tendai Chatara, Hamilton Masakadza, Mujeeb Zadran, M Shahzad, R Shah, Solomon Mire, Craig Ervine, Ihsanullah

Let’s take a look at the match on 13th Feb.
The series is evenly placed now. Both teams have not just this series but the world cup qualifiers in mind. The teams have been performing well enough now to not rock the boat by changing the lineup.

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.

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…
