Nidahas Trophy - A Brief

Nidahas Trophy


The 2018 Nidahas Trophy is an upcoming cricket tournament scheduled to be held in
Sri Lanka in March 2018. It is a tri-nation series between Bangladesh, India and Sri
Lanka.Each team will play each other twice, with two teams progressing to the final.
The tournament is being played to celebrate Sri Lanka's 70th year of independence.
That’s the crux of it. Now let’s get to the teams.
Bangladesh - Shakib Al Hasan is missing the tournament thanks to injury


Squad
Mahmudullah (c), Taskin Ahmed, Liton Das, Ariful Haque, Mehedi Hasan, Nurul Hasan,
Abu Hider, Rubel Hossain, Tamim Iqbal, Nazmul Islam, Abu Jayed, Imrul Kayes, Mushfiqur
Rahim (wk), Mustafizur Rahman, Sabbir Rahman, Soumya Sarkar
India – Rohit Sharma is the captain cos Virat Kohli has opted out of the tournament. But
we are good don’t worry. We got it. We want to test bench strength. Some very good players
who stood at various domestic tournaments such as the TNPL are given a chance to represent
the country. This is exactly what we need to do ahead of the tournament. And we will do it our
way. Unlike poor South Africa who’s Vision world cup took place because of injuries.
We do this our way on our own time. We are the favourites of the tournament without a doubt.
Look at our recent track record. That is why.


Squad
Rohit Sharma (c), Shikhar Dhawan (VC), Yuzvendra Chahal, Deepak Hooda, Dinesh Karthik (wk),
Manish Pandey, Rishabh Pant (wk), Axar Patel, K. L. Rahul, Suresh Raina, Vijay Shankar,
Mohammed Siraj, Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur, Jaydev Unadkat,

Dananjaya, Dhananjaya de Silva, Danushka Gunathilaka, Jeevan Mendis, Kusal Mendis,

Fan Data Analytics: Key to drive sports company growth

Over the last several years, the buzz word in business and IT circles has been "big-data" and analytics. Many many articles and write-ups talk about them so I won't go into the details. You could get enough to last a lifetime with just the first few results of a Google search of these terms. But do you really know how it applies, specifically to a sports company? For long, sports franchises have been one of the biggest users of analytics. Before this was a buzz word, coaches and managers have relied up numbers and finding patterns in them to drive on-field performance. Indeed, the major leagues of the world have relied on performance analytics for everything from scouting for talent to calling the action on the field of play. But that never transcended to the off-field, more mundane but equally important task of managing the sports business. As more and more options come up vying for the fan's attention - live events, travel, other sports, TV, the Internet - the

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

Editor's Pick (ODI Finals): Bangladesh - Sri Lanka

The finals are finally here. Bangladesh meets Sri Lanka leaving Zimbabwe out. You might think that being home series for Bangladesh, it is really no big deal. But it really is not so. Sri Lanka lost home series. Now Australia is facing severe defeat by England. There is no such thing that it is normal for the home team to win anymore. Plus I would really like to appreciate Bangladesh for the way they are making into the big league of cricket today. If you look at the points table, you will see that Bangladesh won three out of four matches. Their points - 15 - are almost four times the score of Zimbabwe. Sri Lanka, with 9 points, made it to the finals. The last match saw Sri Lanka Beat Bangladesh. The only match that the home team ever lost. Makes you wonder if Bangladesh peaked a tad too early, doesn’t it? It was a comprehensive win for Sri Lanka. Bangladesh were 82 all out in 24 overs. Sri Lanka hit the target in less than 12 overs and won by ten wickets. It was really a o
