Wishes poured in for India international and SRH star Manish Pandey, who celebrated his 31st birthday today on 10th September. The Hyderabad franchise also shared a birthday celebration clip on the occasion and many teammates wished Manish on his special day.

Ahead of much-awaited CPL 2020 final, many fans expressed their excitement on Twitter. Fans of Trinbago Knight Riders and St Lucia Zouks wished luck to both the sides for lifting this year’s CPL trophy.

After the culmination of this year’s CPL, much-awaited IPL 2020 is set to start from September 19th, with the opening fixture slated between defending champions Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings. CSK, led by MS Dhoni, received positive news after their pacer Deepak Chahar recovered from COVID-19 and met his teammates on Wednesday.

Chahar had tested positive for COVID-19 two weeks back but he has successfully recovered to ply his trade in this year’s IPL. Chahar has recovered and will start training after clearing all the tests, which is a great piece of news for three-time IPL winners Chennai Super Kings. All other franchises, meanwhile, have been keeping their fans engaged by sharing clips and photos from training sessions. After COVID-19 hiatus, players have been toiling to get back in shape before the T20 extravaganza unfolds on the UAE soil.

Yuvraj Singh also hogged the headlines after confirming his plans of making a comeback to the Punjab team. The southpaw has apparently written a letter to BCCI President Sourav Ganguly asking the board’s permission to come out of retirement. To fulfil his desire of returning to the Punjab side, Ganguly first has to get a go-ahead from the BCCI. However, he currently is registered as a retired player in the Indian board’s record. Yuvraj’s comeback will be dependent on BCCI’s decision.
