Editor’s Pick (PSL T20): Karachi Kings - Lahore Qalandars

PSL 24

The table has seen a lot of changes over the weekend. Multan Sultans, who were on top of the table has become fourth. Lahore Qalandars are still at the bottom of the table despite a win. Quetta Gladiators and Islamabad United take the top two places, replacing Karachi Kings as well.

Today’s match is between Karachi Kings and Lahore Qalandars. Both teams are on a good path and are not likely to change their lineup. I did have a hard time picking a lineup because the players that are consistent, I cannot have them all because of the points constraint. I had to drop Brendon McCullum because his salary is 11. I decided to keep two top players than one top-notch and one below average (no player who costs seven can be in your lineup in this match. Look at his performance. You will agree).

Lahore Qalandars:
Brendon McCullum (c), Sohail Khan, Sunil Narine, Mitchell McClenaghan, Yasir Shah, Anton Devcich, Agha Salman, Fakhar Zaman, Shaheen Afridi, Sohail Akhtar, Gulraiz Sadaf (wk)
Karachi Kings:
Joe Denly, Lendl Simmons, Babar Azam, Colin Ingram, Shahid Afridi, Ravi Bopara, Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Imad Wasim (c), Mohammad Irfan Jnr, Mohammad Amir, Usman Khan
Consistent players
Usman Khan
Yasir Shah  / Imad Wasim
Shaheen Afridi
Sunil Narine
M Rizwan
Shahid Afridi
Anton Devcich
Fakhar Zaman
Colin Ingram
Babar Azam
Joe Denly

Since the match is still in Dubai, I pick batsmen as both my captain and vice-captain.

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.…
