Editor's Pick (T20): New Zealand - Australia

England, Australia, New Zealand T20I Tri-Series, 2018


Gillette T20 trans-Tasman Tri-Series
Australia squad: David Warner (c), Aaron Finch (vc), Ashton Agar, Alex Carey, Ben Dwarshuis,
Travis Head, Chris Lynn, Glenn Maxwell, Kane Richardson, D'Arcy Short, Billy Stanlake, Marcus
Stoinis, Andrew Tye, Adam Zampa.
England squad: Eoin Morgan (c), Sam Billings, Jos Buttler, Sam Curran, Tom Curran, Liam Dawson,
Alex Hales, Chris Jordan, Dawid Malan, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, James
Vince, David Willey, Mark Wood.
New Zealand squad: Kane Williamson (c), Tom Blundell, Trent Boult, Tom Bruce, Colin de
Grandhomme, Martin Guptill, Anaru Kitchen, Colin Munro, Seth Rance, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi,
Tim Southee, Ross Taylor, Ben Wheeler.


Australia and New Zealand inaugurate the tournament with the first T20 taking place on 3rd Feb 2018.
T20 is back in action. New Zealand join Australia and England in what has already been some
fantastic show of cricket. New Zealand have just come out of a tough series with Pakistan. While they
won the ODI series hands down ( 5-0 ) they lost the T20 series. Which is what they are now going to
play in Australia. Hence they should be on their guard.


The first match takes place at Sydney Cricket Ground. The T20 matches have seen a highest score
of 221 (by Aus). David Warner captains Australia. Steve Smith is sitting out currently, given that the
team is going to tour South Africa after this. Now we are all quite familiar with the tough South African
pitch conditions, as we are following the Indian team closely there.


Australia is making a few changes and have decided to bring in those whose performances have
stood out at the Big Bash League. Alex Carey, D’Arcy Short, Billy Stanlake and Ben Dwarshuis are
the new faces. NZ on the other hand might not be making any changes.
Note: Aaron Finch has been ruled out. Short or Lynn will open.

"It's a great opportunity to lead a younger team," Warner said. "You need some form of experience around the young group. It's going to be tough and challenging when you play all three forms... but you are always going to give 100 per cent.

New Zealand Probable XI : Kane Williamson(c), Tom Blundell (wk), Colin Munro, Trent Boult,
Ross Taylor / Tom Bruce, Colin de Grandhomme, Martin Guptill, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Tim
Southee, Anaru Kitchen
Australia Probable XI : David Warner(c), Alex Carey (wk), Aaron Finch, D’Arcy Short, Marcus
Stoinis, Chris Lynn, Glenn Maxwell, Ashton Agar, Andrew Tye, Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa

Low costing players - must have
D’Arcy Short - supposed to be the new David Warner.

Australian tri-series squad will be able to feature in the finals.

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. Venues  India Cements Ground, Thirunelveli NPR College Ground, Dindigul  MA Chitambaram Stadium, Chennai  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 pr

Editor’s Pick(PKL)

Four more days of Kabaddi, a teeny break and the next round commences on October 23rd. The super playoffs. All this hard work only for that. A look at the point table will give you an idea about who COULD go to the next level. Course anything could happen in the last minute. Anyone could topple. You remember the havoc Bangladesh created during the Champions Trophy. They threw out the big guns. I mean, they probably stopped West Indies from qualifying too, come to think of it. Back to Kabaddi. Zone A is still topped by Gujarat followed by Haryana and Pune. The other three teams - Mumbai, Jaipur and Delhi. Zone B, Bengal take the lead followed by Patna and UP. Today’s match-UP meets Bengaluru. UP is third and are doing very good for themselves. Bengaluru, fifth on the table, don’t really look like they have a chance. Only thing they do want to do now is walk out with a smile saying yes, we tried. UP Yoddha - Squad strength: 18 (16 Indian, 2 Overseas) Defenders – Jeeva Kumar, Ha

From all of us Fans to Players & Officials: Please don't treat us with kid gloves

As any fan will tell you, we not just love, but understand the sport and our teams like no one else. And that’s also why they keep bankrolling the big fat salaries of the players, the profits of the clubs and the boondoggle of officials. The recently concluded test match raised, in my mind, three instances where the thought process seems to be – it is OK for us to handle it, but it is too hot for fans . Common, now, please don’t treat us with kid gloves. One: The first one, inevitably, is about the DRS and taking the dugouts inputs in it. The rules are clear – the decision to ask for a decision review stays with the players on the field. Within a few seconds of the umpires’ decision, the batting team can dispute an out decision or the bowling team can dispute a not-out decision, without consulting with anyone outside the playing field. The controversy of Smith’s ‘brain-fade’ and Kohli’s allegations have played out ad nauseam on TV and cyberspace, so I will spare you that
