Today’s cricketing trends revolved around the Indian Premier League (IPL) as expected and Rohit Sharma was celebrating his 32nd birthday, which ensured every fan and cricketer came out to wish the Hitman. One of the greatest strikers in the 21st century, Rohit struck three double centuries in his career to go with four tons in International T20s, most by any Indian cricketer in the history. He is also the Indian vice-captain currently and is eager to help India win their third World Cup.
In the Indian Premier League, Sunrisers Hyderabad had a mixed emotions day on Monday and Tuesday. While they rejoiced their win over Kings XI Punjab, they also received a huge setback as David Warner leaves the Orange Army to join Australia’s World Cup preparations. Warner currently holds possession of the Orange Cup with a staggering 692 runs in just 12 knocks.
As if the “Avengers – End Game” didn’t give enough chills to the fans, Game of Thrones struck lightning on Monday with arguably one of the finest battle sequences ever portrayed on television. Well, all the GoT fans in the cricketing universe went bonkers about it and Shikha Pandey’s tweet was a testament to how the fans are feeling right now.
Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals combat in Bangalore in a tussle to ensure neither end at the bottom. It will be an interesting contest for the fans to witness although it doesn’t impact the points table much.

9. Ishant Sharma relives one of his greatest memories as Indian cricket

● THROWBACK SERIES ● (Memory 1/3) — “Lords Test, 2014” 21st July, 2014 : One of my fond memories of that year and even today, team India won a test at Lord’s after 28 years. India proved themselves as a strong fight, we became better competitors and definitely came back with a lot of learning. Being awarded as the man of the match, was definitely a blessing but till date I remember the words I said – "The way batsmen played in the first innings, Ajinkya played really well in the first innings, that gave us the momentum. Also the way Vijay played, Jaddu and Bhuvi also. Cricket is a great leveller, the way MS bhai handled the team, the way he keeps on motivating the guys. I think all these wickets are not for me, it is for the captain. He told me, 'you are tall enough, you have to bowl the bouncer,' that's what I did and it worked for me." Maximum team effort and team spirit!! 🏏 #teamindia #2014 #lords
