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
With coach Wasim Akram to train the team, Multan is looking for a winning start. This team is the latest addition to the PSL. Tom Moody is the head coach. Big names are associated with this team. Shoaib Malik leads the team.

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.…
