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.

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

Blog Time: How I won my Fantain Fantasy Cricket

I played the Sri Lanka – Zimbabwe match and I won more than six times what I put in. That is a really good investment, isn’t it? I have been asked by Fantain to share what I did and how I planned my lineup. This is how. Kusal Perera  – I made him captain. I won a massive 120 points. My vice-captain was Dinesh Chandimal .  So I got 43.5. In hindsight, I could have picked Perera. He did fabulously well and earned a whopping 89 on the app. The other player in my lineup who helped me win was Sikandar Raza . He got 88.5 on the app. These four players are a must be in the next match between Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe.  Dinesh Chandimal is one good consistent player that I always have. So it’s like this. I have four categories when I play fantasy cricket. One is the must-have players who will be on my team no matter what. For this match that I played, they were Kusal Perera, Dinesh Chandimal, and Upul Tharanga. For me, old is gold. Experience speaks volumes. The second category is ba

Need for co-ed sports

Now, this is hardly a feminist piece. I am not here to tell you that women can do anything that men can and better too. One, you know it too. Two, this is hardly about women. I am not here to praise women and demand better rights. I am talking about the possibility that the entire field of sports can take a whole new meaning if gender is not made the criterion. So this is how the idea for the blog started. The Women’s Indian Cricket Team performed really well at the world cup this year. Mithali Raj praised her team for their hard work, persistence, and passion for the game. She also added that there should be an IPL tournament in the country for the women’s team now. Raj believes that the team’s fantastic game has increased the fan following for the women’s team as well and that they have earned their place here. While I am honestly not sure about an IPL tournament for women, it did get me thinking. Why not mixed sports? Now that girls play almost all the games that the guys do, w
