Death overs in twenty over cricket is boisterous. I reckon it’s more of a batsman’s territory. If your team has the right batsman at the crease, it is inexorable that he/she shifts the momentum by decimating bowlers all around the park. I have tried to cluster batsmen based on their outcomes in overs 15–20 for the past five years in twenty-over cricket using Machine Learning. The competitions that were taken into account :

  1. Indian Premier League
  2. KFC Big Bash
  3. Super Smash
  4. Caribbean Premier League
  5. Pakistan Super League
  6. Natwest T20 Blast
  7. International Men’s T20

Batsmen who have played a minimum of…


As Kings XI Punjab terminated the Australian’s services, let us have a close look at his most probable destination that would be a win-win for both the club and the player. Known for his crude hitting ability, Maxwell can be a game-changer if his potential is utilized rightly according to the needs of any franchise. He can act as a sixth bowling option to break the rhythm of opponent partnerships. Not to mention that he is easily not if, one of the greatest fielders to ever grace the field.

Maxwell struggled to find his form in IPL 2020, without even…


Before setting your squad for GW17, it is important to keep in mind the situation of Man City and Fulham. Their camps have been severely affected by COVID-19, so the chances that they’ll play against Chelsea and Burnley respectively, are very slim. Our primary suggestion would be to not rely much on these four teams, to avoid a drop in points.

GW17 is going to be a trickier one. Sides who score a lot of goals are pitted against sides who score a lot of goals in return and sides who score little are pitted against sides who score little…


Coming back from a loss is never easy in test cricket. Add to that the shame of scoring the lowest test score in decades and their captain and Men’s Cricketer of the decade leaving on parental duties, no one gave India a chance in the boxing day test at the MCG. Donning the skipper’s role for the rest of the series, all eyes were on Ajinkya Rahane to see how he lifts the team after the disaster at Adelaide. …


With Christmas just around the corner and the players having to play matches within 48 hours, the Premier League fixtures have been made such that GW16 begins on the day right after GW15 ends. So we have decided to cover both game weeks at once to avoid missing out on covering GW16.

Contradictory to GW13, GW14 was the most profitable ever with each match giving significant returns to the top managers. The most picked captain choices of Mohamed Salah, Bruno Fernandes, and Jack Grealish didn’t disappoint us as the three of them returned double-digit hauls from their thrashing of Crystal…


2020 was supposed to be the year that propelled the human race to greater heights. To say that it has not lived up to expectations would be putting it mildly. Jose Mourinho is the current Tottenham manager, Arsenal are drudging ever so deeper into a relegation dogfight, Liverpool have lifted the league title after a 30-year hiatus, and fans are no longer allowed into stadiums. …


19 December 2020. Day 3 of the first pink ball test of India’s tour of Australia. After gaining the upper hand in a low scoring first innings, India succumbed to their lowest ever total in test cricket — 36 — as a superb bowling showcase from Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins completely flipped the match on its head and gave the hosts the lead in the series. It was a day to forget for the Indians, but one that would be talked about for ages to come. It was the lowest score in a test innings for India, the lowest…


Gameweek 13 review:

The gameweek witnessed an overall all-around performance from all the thirds of the teams. Only a few teams could profit from a clean sheet. The goalless draw between Aston Villa and Burnley meant that FPL favorites Emiliano Martinez and Nick Pope continued their excellent run of form and are turning to must-haves in every team. Some defenders came up with powerful attacking returns, With 5 goal contributions and 5 clean sheets, Chelsea’s Ben Chilwell is strong holding his position as a premium defender. …


Gameweek 12 review:

Many goalkeepers profited from the previous game week with more lopsided matches and stalemates. Out of them are season favorites Alex McCarthy, Nick Pope, and Emiliano Martinez who continue to extend their form and have become strong options to be included in everyone’s team. On the contrary, Chelsea lost their clean sheet to a frustrating penalty by Gylfi Sigurðsson in a one-goal loss against Everton, which meant that Kurt Zouma, Reece James, and Dominic Calvert Lewin returned with blanks. As predicted last week, both Kevin De Bruyne and Bruno Fernandes blanked in the Manchester Derby. …


After a splendid series, spearheading England to a clean sweep 3–0 victory against South Africa all eyes are on the №1 T20 batsman Dawid Malan. The 33-year-old left-hander who relegated Pakistan’s Babar Azam to the 2nd position earlier this year has proven to be a solid and highly efficient player in this format of cricket. Having scored 10 half-centuries over 19 matches, his tenacity has brought him into the discussion of the most sought-after players in the 2021 IPL Auctions. Being a consistent performer, he proves to be a prospective player that the Chennai Super Kings very much need.
