The Indian Premier League (IPL) continues to remain the hot topic in the cricketing world. The Chennai Super Kings (CSK) side will take on the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) side in a blockbuster clash on 25th April 2021, and ‘Chinna Thala’ Suresh Raina is gearing up for the match.
Also, former Indian cricketer, Aakash Chopra has given his predicted playing XI for the Punjab Kings (PBKS) side against the Mumbai Indians (MI). Meanwhile, there was a piece of news that had stated that Manoj Tiwary had tested positive for Covid-19. But now, Tiwary himself has clarified that it is just a hoax.
Washington Sundar is delighted after the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) side has managed to win 4 consecutive matches in a row in the 14th edition of the IPL. Today is also World Book Day, and Dinesh Karthik is reading the book, ‘The Test’.

Given the pandemic and rise in #covid19 cases, I urge the govt to look into the matter of examinations of all students – Year long, students have taken online classes, courses too are left incomplete – the safety and well being of students should be kept in mind @Shafqat_Mahmood

11. Sanjay Manjrekar offers his opinion on the change of cricket balls
Changing balls and offering dry balls to bowling teams when it gets wet is a no brainer for me. Simple spin of coin can’t be giving a significant advantage to one team. #IPL2021

14. Brad Hogg showers praise on Devdutt Padikkal
Great knock by Padikkal, but thought RCB let RR off the hook when they were bowling. When they had them for 4 for 43 they looked a little to relaxed thinking that it was just going to happen. Never underestimate your opposition. #RRvRCB #IPL #IPLT20
