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.

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.

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.…

Blog Time: Bangladesh Beats Sri Lanka

Bangladesh defeated Sri Lanka in their own den. The Lions losing to India was somewhat alright. I mean it is India. And the current team is one of the best teams in the world. They also defeated South Africa in South Africa. But Sri Lanka losing to Bangladesh in Sri Lanka will be extremely hard to digest. A lot of people were surprised. Now I have the habit of rooting for the underdogs and I had a feeling that Bangladesh had it in them. It was nice to be able to tell others, “I told you that Bangladesh could win”.

What did happen? Sri Lanka came in to bat first and hit a solid 214 runs in 20 overs. It was a very good score indeed. Perera’s 74 along with Kusal Mendis’s 57 took the runs to a competitive level. It seemed like a sure-fire win for the lions. A very fair assumption to make too. And then came in Bangladesh. From the word go, they were on the track to victory. The first wicket fell at 74. Second at 100. Third at 151. By the time the fifth wicket fell, the contributions made by…
