The cricketing trends on the social media revolved around various events today, one of them was the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019. In today’s first match, the Delhi Capitals (DC) locked horns with the Rajasthan Royals (RR) at the Feroz Shah Kotla in New Delhi. The hosts, captained by Shreyas Iyer, won the game by five wickets and finished the round-robin stage on a comprehensive note.

Ishant Sharma and Amit Mishra picked up three wickets each and restricted the Royals to 115 in 20 overs. Mohammad Kaif was happy after the decent bowling performances. Rishabh Pant scored 53 from 38 balls and Hemang Badani was satisfied to see the patience with which the 21-year-old batted. Aakash Chopra couldn’t stop heaping praises on the 17-year-old Riyan Parag.

The Assam cricketer became the youngest batsman to notch a half-century in the IPL and the Young Turk achieved the milestone in 47 balls. Yusuf Pathan seemed charged up prior to the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) contest against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.

Former Australian bowler Brett Lee made a prediction about Kolkata Knight Riders’ (KKR) chances of making it to the playoffs. Meanwhile, Gambhir Gambhir suggested Shahid Afridi to consult a psychiatrist after the former Pakistan cricketer called the 37-year-old Gambhir a ‘negative individual’.
