Editor's Pick (PSL T20): Multan Sultans - Karachi Kings

PSL 11 - Multan Sultans - Karachi Kings

This is a good match to watch out for. Both teams on a good high. Karachi Kings right on top of the table with 6 points and a high run rate of +0.8750. Multan Sultans have four points to their credit having won two matches. Multan Sultans have not only lost only one match but they defeated the defending champions in their very first PSL tournament. That is a high no one can take away from them.

Multan Sultans
From the first match of the PSL, this team clicked. M Hafeez and captain Darren Sammy contributed well. Kumara Sangakkara’s experience is a big asset to the team. Shoaib Malik is the pillar that the team needs. With the ball, the team has M Irfan, Junaid Khan, and Imran Tahir.
If the Sultans win this game, they go to the top of the table. They have added strength to their batting side as a strategy to improve their chances in this tournament. They are bound to add Umar Gul to the playing eleven at some point.

Karachi Kings
Shahid Afridi and Usman Khan powered their team to a third successive win at the PSL. Both taking three wickets each, they have given the bowling department a very strong boost. Ravi Bopara can contribute with both the bat and the ball like Afridi. Colin Ingram has also proven to be one of the must-have players.

In your Fantain Fantasy lineup, be sure to stock up the players with a good batting order. There are quite a few to choose from in this match. You might have to leave a couple of them. A good idea would be to have more than one lineups so that you can try various combinations.

Fan Data Analytics: Key to drive sports company growth

Over the last several years, the buzz word in business and IT circles has been "big-data" and analytics. Many many articles and write-ups talk about them so I won't go into the details. You could get enough to last a lifetime with just the first few results of a Google search of these terms. But do you really know how it applies, specifically to a sports company?

For long, sports franchises have been one of the biggest users of analytics. Before this was a buzz word, coaches and managers have relied up numbers and finding patterns in them to drive on-field performance. Indeed, the major leagues of the world have relied on performance analytics for everything from scouting for talent to calling the action on the field of play.

But that never transcended to the off-field, more mundane but equally important task of managing the sports business. As more and more options come up vying for the fan's attention - live events, travel, other sports, TV, the Internet - the war…
