Editor's Pick (PSL T20): Multan Sultans - Islamabad United

Multan Sultans, the newbie of PSL is right on top of the table with two wins from two matches. The other teams are stunned. Both the teams who have played against the Sultans and the ones who have not. With four points to their credit and a run rate of +1.2760, Multan Sultans are the current champs of PSL 2018.

They meet Islamabad United today. They have lost the only match that they have played. But we are still at the beginning of the tournament. There is no telling how things could go. What we can do is keep a track of the players who are playing consistently and add them to our fantain fantasy lineup.

Multan Sultans are not likely to change their playing eleven.
Playing XI:Shoaib Malik (c), Kumar Sangakkara (wk), Kieron Pollard, Sohail Tanvir, Darren Bravo, Ahmed Shehzad, Imran Tahir, Mohammad Irfan, Junaid Khan, Sohaib Maqsood, Saif Badar Bench:Umar Gul, Thisara Perera, Ross Whiteley, Nicholas Pooran, Hardus Viljoen, Shan Masood, Umar Siddiq, Kashif Bhatti, Mohammad Abbas , Abdullah Shafique

Islamabad United has played only one match and they lost. That shouldn’t matter. Yet.
Playing XI:Mohammad Sami, Luke Ronchi (wk), Samit Patel, Chadwick Walton, Andre Russell, Asif Ali, Hussain Talat, Iftikhar Ahmed, Rumman Raees (c), Shadab Khan, Faheem Ashraf Bench:Misbah-ul-Haq, Samuel Badree, Steven Finn, Alex Hales, Sam Billings, Zafar Gohar, Amad Butt, Mohammad Hasan, Rohail Nazir

Please note
Match: Multan Sultans vs Islamabad United 6th Match Prediction PSL, 2018
Date: February 25th, 2018
Venue: Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai
Avg 1st inn score: 141
Avg 2nd inn score: 125

Highest Chased: 183/5 (19.4 Ov) by Afg vs UAE
Lowest Defended: 144/6 (20 Ov) by Pak vs Eng
The high wind here will make a good swing. That is not good for the batsmen. Win the toss and bowl first might be the call for the team winning the toss. Restrict the team to a low total and then try to get it.

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

Need for co-ed sports

Now, this is hardly a feminist piece. I am not here to tell you that women can do anything that men can and better too. One, you know it too. Two, this is hardly about women. I am not here to praise women and demand better rights. I am talking about the possibility that the entire field of sports can take a whole new meaning if gender is not made the criterion. So this is how the idea for the blog started. The Women’s Indian Cricket Team performed really well at the world cup this year. Mithali Raj praised her team for their hard work, persistence, and passion for the game. She also added that there should be an IPL tournament in the country for the women’s team now. Raj believes that the team’s fantastic game has increased the fan following for the women’s team as well and that they have earned their place here. While I am honestly not sure about an IPL tournament for women, it did get me thinking. Why not mixed sports? Now that girls play almost all the games that the guys do, w

Blog Time: How I won my Fantain Fantasy Cricket

I played the Sri Lanka – Zimbabwe match and I won more than six times what I put in. That is a really good investment, isn’t it? I have been asked by Fantain to share what I did and how I planned my lineup. This is how. Kusal Perera  – I made him captain. I won a massive 120 points. My vice-captain was Dinesh Chandimal .  So I got 43.5. In hindsight, I could have picked Perera. He did fabulously well and earned a whopping 89 on the app. The other player in my lineup who helped me win was Sikandar Raza . He got 88.5 on the app. These four players are a must be in the next match between Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe.  Dinesh Chandimal is one good consistent player that I always have. So it’s like this. I have four categories when I play fantasy cricket. One is the must-have players who will be on my team no matter what. For this match that I played, they were Kusal Perera, Dinesh Chandimal, and Upul Tharanga. For me, old is gold. Experience speaks volumes. The second category is ba
