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

Must have players
Colin Munro
David Warner
Martin Guptil


Low costing players - must have
D’Arcy Short - supposed to be the new David Warner.
Billy Stanlake
Ben Dwarshuis
In a blow to the standard of the Big Bash League none of the players chosen for the
Australian tri-series squad will be able to feature in the finals.


Must have bowlers
Andrew Tye
Trent Boult

Key Players: India - England

When there is nothing left, you will play for pride. That is what India has to do tomorrow. Considering the fact that the match is taking place in Mumbai. Do it for them. Do it for us.  England and Australia will meet each other at the finals on 31st March. India and England are more than likely to go in with the same playing eleven.
India Terribly low on morale, the team will now have to give it their all. They need to know that they are much better than this.

England The team has been doing really well since day one. They will now consider this as a practice match. But they will want to win and go to the finals with confidence. They were thumped by Australia earlier in what can be called as a one-sided game. They want to win this tomorrow.

Editor’s Pick (Nidahas T20): India - Sri Lanka

The table is currently in a very surprising situation. Most expected Sri Lanka to show Bangladesh the door. But here they are still standing up and shining. The tournament is wide open. Today’s match is between India and Sri Lanka. The stakes are much higher now that Bangladesh is more feared than before. The teams would not want to risk anything at this point. Earlier I had said that they might experiment with the lineup and give everyone a chance. Now it will be more than giving people a chance. They will strategize. The Indian team will be open to experimentation, but not at the cost of results.

The untested ones are Deepak Hooda, KL Rahul, and Axar Patel. India has lost to Sri Lanka in their first encounter of this tournament. They will want to be wary because another defeat could cost them the tournament itself. So, not all the new players will see the light today.
A lot depends on Rohit Sharma today. Shikhar Dhawan, Suresh Raina, Manish Pandey and Dinesh Karthik will chip in too.…
