With Christmas lurking around the corner and some big boxing day clashes coming up, the cricketing trends across the fraternity were in a festive mood. Some fascinating Ranji action kept fans on bay and Mumbai’s Shreyas Iyer was one of the show-stoppers, smashing a 61-ball 83 in the second innings against Saurashtra. His innings included 5 fours and 7 big sixes.

Boxing Day is the biggest talking point among all the cricketing action happening right now. South Africa will be hosting Pakistan in Centurion while India will be seeking redemption against the Aussies at the iconic MCG. Some debuts are on cards as Mayank Agarwal is expected to replace one of the stuttering openers KL Rahul or Murali Vijay.

There’s plenty at stake for both sides who fought valiantly for their respective results in the first two Tests. This perhaps is the most competitive India-Australia series Down Under since the 2003/04 series and the fans too are getting behind their sides brilliantly.

Legendary actor Anil Kapoor turned another year young and the cricketing fraternity poured their wishes to the 62-year-old. After a career that spanned over 40 years, the “Ram Lakhan” and “Mr. India” actor garnered great fan base and is loved immensely in the cricketing world as well.
