It was a proud moment and historic day for India after the successful launch of Chandrayaan 2 by ISRO. Thus, quite a few cricketing trends revolved around this topic. Kedar Jadhav tweeted that this was literally ‘shooting for the moon’. Harbhajan Singh and Sachin Tendulkar also had their own ways of congratulating ISRO on this marvellous achievement.

Even though they were slightly late, Virat Kohli and KL Rahul took it to Twitter to congratulate Hima Das. She won her fifth gold medal in the last 19 days and is ruling the European circuit. For the inaugural edition of the Euro T20 Slam, Sikandar Raza will be a part of the Amsterdam Knights. He seemed to be elated about this and shared his happiness on social media.


There were quite a few trends that revolved around birthdays as well. Shikhar Dhawan wished his Delhi Capitals’ teammate Trent Bout. It was also the birthday of Sri Lanka’s Nuwan Kulasekara and Dilruwan Perera. Dhammika Prasad and Thisara Perera passed on their wishes. Meanwhile, Dhawal Kulkarni wished Maharastra’s CM Devendra Fadnavis on his birthday.
