Editor’s Pick (PSL T20): Multan Sultans - Quetta Gladiators.

PSL: 17

Multan Sultans are probably humming the song, “nothing’s gonna stop us now’. And probably nothing is stopping them at the moment. Playing PSL for the first time, this team has exceeded all expectations - even their own - and has come on top in a fabulous way. And they have beaten the defending champions, Peshawar Zalmi, not once but twice. So, if anyone had called their first victory a fluke or beginner’s luck; they have put that thought to rest.



The Sultans have also met Quetta Gladiators before and has defeated them. Humiliated them, rather. Karachi Kings have a prayer of a hope right now of defeating the new kids on the block. Time will tell.

Multan Sultans
Nothing more to say about them. Top of the table with nine glorious points. Has everything going for them. They will stick to their winning combination and winning ways.

Quetta Gladiators
Second last on the table. Meeting the team that beat the defending champions twice. And has lost to them as well. The gladiators need to rethink their strategy if they want to progress in this tournament. They do not want to be stuck at the bottom of the table like Lahore Qalandars.

Key Players
Multan Sultan
Kumar Sangakkara
Shoaib Malik
Imran Tahir
Sohail Tanvir
Ahmed Shehzad

Quetta Gladiators
Sarfaraz Ahmed

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

TNPL - A Brief Rundown

Based on the stupendously successful Indian Premier League is the Tamil Nadu Premier League. This Indian T20 cricket league has been established by the Tamil Nadu State Cricket Association to bring out more and more Natarajans and Washingtons who otherwise do not get a chance to showcase their skill and talent in the world of Cricket.
