Editor's Pick (T20): Peshawar Zalmi vs Multan Sultans

PSL match one
  
Defending champions meet the new team in the first match of PSL. This gets very exciting because the defending champions have more pressure on them. It is alright for Multan Sultans to lose but not for Peshawar Zalmi. It might be this pressure that could be their weakness. If the Sultans get their break through early in the game, they might even go all the way.

The match is being played in Dubai. This is a day/night match. The dew will play a factor later on. The pitch aids pacers as well as the batsmen. This can mean that the match can go either way. The team that has a better day is going to be the winner.

Multan Sultans (From): Ahmed Shehzad, Shan Masood, Darren Bravo, Kumar Sangakkara(w), Shoaib Malik(c), Thisara Perera, Sohail Tanvir, Imran Tahir, Junaid Khan, Mohammad Abbas, Nicholas Pooran, Hardus Viljoen, Ross Whiteley, Umar Siddiq, Umar Gul, Mohammad Irfan, Sohaib Maqsood, Saif Badar, Kashif Bhatti, Abdullah Shafique

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 it. I came very early. I …

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…
