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.

Key Players
Kumar Sangakkara
Shoaib Malik
M Irfan
Junaid Khan
Ahmed Shehzad
Imran Tahir
K Pollard

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.

Editor’s Pick (T20): India - Sri Lanka

A young and relatively inexperienced team, the players are full of enthu and raring to go as they face Sri Lanka at home tomorrow for their first T20 match of the Nidahas Trophy. I’ll tell you one thing. India is full of confidence. The boys have beaten the lions before in their own den. Not just beaten but a brutal defeat the Lions faced. Team Sri Lanka, on the other hand, will not take this team lightly. Yes, they are young. Yes, many players are playing for the country for the very first time. But that does not make the players any less lethal or skilled. In fact, the young players are likely to be passionate and aggressive from the word go.
India squad: Rohit Sharma(c), Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul, Suresh Raina, Manish Pandey, Dinesh Karthik, Deepak Hooda, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Vijay Shankar, Shardul Thakur, Jaydev Unadkat, Mohammed Siraj, Rishabh Pant Sri Lanka squad: Dinesh Chandimal(c), Upul Tharanga, Danushka Gunathilaka, Kusal Mendis, Dasun Shanaka, …

The grand Finale: India - England #GirlPower

The Lords did see one really beautiful match. India met England and it turned out to be a helluva encounter. The margin - 9 runs - made it a thriller match that placed you at the edge of your chair. Both the teams played magnificently and gave it all that they had for their countries. England did not put up a high total on the board, but they came back strong and stunned the Indians. The fightback was really something to watch. And England happily walked away with the cup. It was a moment of crowning glory for the British Women who fought hard in every way. The Women In Blue, led by Mithali Raj missed it by a whisker. But having said that, they have made everyone back home incredibly proud. Making it to the finals of one of the most coveted tournaments conducted by ICC should be appreciated and applauded.
A quick summary of the match.
Set to achieve a target of 229, the Indian Team looked set in their path to get their first world cup in their midst. Opener Punam Raut made sure of a g…

India showed what they can do at Chepauk Stadium last night.

I could not get my hands on the tickets. Yup. Had to start with this line because it can only get better as you read on. The match was mind-blowing. The Men In Blue were bright and brilliant. They were down a bit but when they came back, they were strong and competitive. They did not let the rains get to them. They did not let the rain prevent them from winning. The Chennai Audience had the time of their lives indeed. It was good cricket. Even for those few at the stadium who supported the Aussies. The sea of blue chanting Dhoni’s name was resounding and well-deserved. It reminded all those who kept asking Captain Cool when he plans to retire that Dhoni makes the call, not them. The man’s still got it.
When Australia came in to bat, they were facing a target of 164 to be hit in 21 overs. Now I do not understand Duckworth or Lewis. Put them together and I am just lost. They came in, played around with the numbers and put a target based on how India batted, the number of wickets they lo…
