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

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.

Editor’s Pick: India - West Indies

First Match - Abandoned Second Match - India Beat West Indies by 105 runs. Third Match - India Beat West Indies by 93 runs. Fourth Match - Hmm… I don’t really want to talk about it.
Oh well.. Here goes. It was a rather embarrassing defeat. The series looked very much in the kitty when India had to chase 190 runs. The faithful Indian Fans probably even started celebrating. Even though the first three wickets fell rather early, Rahane stuck in there and hit 60 runs to pave what looked like a really short road to victory. And then came Dhoni. No one would have even considered the chance of a defeat. Not even a pessimist.
Time moved slowly after that. Or at least Dhoni did. He batted and batted and batted. Remember that time Sunny Gavaskar scored a 174-ball 36 runs? It was 1975 all over again. Dhoni’s innings were just as excruciatingly painful. It would have been worth it had India won of course. India fell short of the target and West Indies won by 11 runs. They were probably surprised t…

Women - Object of Respect, not Objectification

I had to visit the neurologist the other day. I call up the hospital and find out if one would be on call in the evening and had my appointment booked. Fifteen minutes before the scheduled appointment, I reach the receptionist to confirm the room. She goes, “ The lady neurologist will see you in room number 10”. I was stumped. What was the message she was trying to convey? Neurologist is in? She’s a lady? Do I want to see a lady neurologist?


It got me wondering. Does being a lady make her any less of a doctor? Why can’t the receptionist just say “ The neurologist is in?” And then I wondered .. does anyone ever say “lady receptionist”? No. Then why this tag for a doctor? Women today are just being designated to posts where they can look pretty. Looking pretty seems more important than doing a good job. There are actresses who have confessed that they were told by the director to just look pretty and needn’t worry about acting. It is a pretty sad state of affairs when women are being loo…
