Twitter was flooded with messages marking today’s significance as the entire nation saluted the brave martyrs of 1999 Kargil War on the 21st anniversary of ‘Kargil Diwas’. The Indian armed forces had defeated Pakistan on July 26, 1999. Since then, the day is celebrated as ‘Kargil Vijay Diwas’ to rekindle the pride and denote its significance.

Along with many prominent personalities, many cricketers including Manoj Tiwary, Parwinder Awana, Gautam Gambhir, Rohit Sharma and Suresh Raina paid tribute to those who had sacrificed their lives.

Meanwhile, Ramiz Raja also hogged the attention by sharing payslip of India’s 1983 World Cup-winning team. India, in the final of the showpiece event, had defeated a dominant West Indies side to clinch the prestigious trophy. The players were given a daily allowance of INR 200 per for three days, amounting to a total of INR 600. On top of that, the match fee of the players was INR 1500, taking the total amount allotted to a player to INR 2100.

Meanwhile. India skipper Virat Kohli, while speaking to Mayank Agarwal on BCCI’s show ‘Open nets with Mayank’, shared his experience of baking the cake for the first time in his life on the occasion of Anushka’s birthday. Both Virat and Anushka have been quite active on social media amid the pandemic.

Many tweets also surfaced about the on-going Manchester Test between England and West Indies. England, after amassing 369 runs in their first innings, restricted West Indies to 197 to stay on top and increase their chances to win the Test and clinch the three-match series. Veteran Stuart Broad dazzled with the ball as he scalped a six-wicket haul to put cruise England a step closer towards the triumph.
