Editor's Pick (PSL T20): Quetta Gladiators - Peshawar Zalmi

PSL 10 - Quetta Gladiators - Peshawar Zalmi

Defending Champions Peshawar Zalmi walked into the 2018 tournament head held high and morales higher. After being defeated by debutants of the tournament, they fell hard. They bounced back in style and outclassed Islamabad United by 34 runs. They have still lost two out of three matches and must be worried today while facing Quetta Gladiators.

Quetta Gladiators are looking good, being second on the points table, with four points. They lost only to Karachi Kings. They have defeated Lahore Qalandars and Islamabad United.

This match will be a tricky one. Both teams are fairly even except that the gladiators walk in with two wins as opposed the defending champion’s one. Peshawar has fallen short of all expectations and needs a mega-pick me up to move forward.

Team Quetta Gladiators.
The bowlers have contributed well so far and look to restrict the opponent to a low score on board. Kevin Pietersen looks to be in form and is able to take the team to the finishing line. He has company in M Nawaz and Asad Shafiq. Nawaz also took wickets along with Jofra Archer’s three-wicket haul. The team is strong and looking good. Add Shane Watson to the list and you have a winning combination.

Key Players
Shane Watson
M Nawaz
Kevin Pietersen
Asad Shafiq

Team Peshawar Zalmi
The team needs to work on their confidence. Their losses have taken them by surprise but their last victory against Islamabad United should be a good boost. The team is not short of talent, that’s for sure. Kamran Akmal. Tamim Iqbal. Dwayne Smith. M Hafeez. Umaid Asif has taken a four-wicket haul making him a match winner.
The batting department needs to stand up to the Gladiator’s bowling. Both seam and spin. That would be the key.

Key Players
Dwayne Smith
Kamran Akmal
M Hafeez
Umaid Asif
C Jordan

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 it. I came very early. I …

Champions Trophy - India is the team to beat

They say tough times brings teams together.  They say adversity brings out the best in us.  Looks like that is what is happening to Team India in the ongoing Champions Trophy in the UK.   AlI the talk about match fixing and spot fixing and conflict of interest seems to be bringing out the best in team India.  I am writing this blog just ahead of the semi finals where India will play Sri Lanka.  But got to say this - looks like team India is firing on all cylinders.  I have never seen the Indian team perform so commandingly well in a tournament before - especially one played outside the sub-continent.  All aspects of the Indian team seems to be clicking well and India is clearly the best team in the tournament so far.
Our bowling is superb, with the exception of Ishanth Sharma.   Bhuvaneshwar Kumar continues to impress one and all - the amazing thing is the carry he gets even when he is bowling around 130 kmph.  I don't think it is because of the wickets alone - I feel the carry he …
