The cricketing trends on social media today revolved around the Mumbai Indians (MI) victory in the Indian Premier League (IPL) in the final. The thrilling 1-run victory left the fraternity stunned and it was all due to Lasith Malinga‘s brilliance who fired in a yorker to Shardul Thakur who was pinned in front of the stumps. MI won the match by just 1 run and it was a heartbreak for the Chennai fans.
The fraternity was busy wishing Mumbai Indians for their record fourth IPL title. They have now won the tournament in 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2019 which also makes them the most successful team in the IPL history as well. Even the Mumbai players were ecstatic over the victory and thanked the fans for their support throughout the season this year.
Meanwhile, with the IPL done and dusted, the World Cup wave has started and with only 17 days to go for the mega event to get underway. Herschelle Gibbs was more excited for the same even as England and South Africa will fight it out in the tournament opener before which all the ten teams will play two warm-up games each to get used to the conditions.
