IPL 2018: Round-up of week 2

The IPL 2018 rolled on this weekend and in a reversal of the IPL’s chase and win strategy, Sunday finally saw two games being won by the team that batted first. That said, Dhoni and CSK nearly pulled off yet another incredible run chase against KXIP. What an innings, Thala!

Our latest episode of Edges & Sledges is also online. This week we spoke to Rohan Narula, our friend who is a KXIP fan and it was lots of fun. Great insights from someone who clearly enjoys cricket! Also, our usual fantasy tip of the week is in the video so make sure you watch it right until the end.

Episode 4 of Edges & Sledges: DK’s last ball six, Ball Tampering by Australia and the WC qualifiers

This has been a crazy week for cricket. From DK’s last ball six in the Nidahas Trophy final to break Bangladeshi hearts to Rabada’s ban being overturned on appeal to the ball tampering scandal that has been unfolding in Cape Town. Add to the mix, some centuries by Ishan Kishan and Saha, the WC qualifiers and Shami’s personal drama, and it’s been as full a week as we can remember!

With all that has been happening, the team here had a tough time deciding topics for this week but episode 4 of Edges & Sledges mainly focuses on the fall out of the ball tampering situation in South Africa involving Steve Smith and Cam Bancroft. We also cover DK’s incredible 8 ball innings before wrapping-up with our thoughts on World Cup qualifiers. There is only that much we could fit into a half an hour show!
