The Indian government’s move of banning 59 Chinese applications after the cross-border tensions was welcomed by many Indian citizens. Among those 59 applications, one app which had gathered the most attention was TikTok.
Be it Bollywood stars of cricket internationals, everyone had used the app once in a while. David Warner and Yuzvendra Chahal were two such individuals who have been using the app extensively. Ravichandran Ashwin, after the ban, even took a sly dig at Warner and asked the southpaw for his reaction after the ban.
Meanwhile, wishes poured in for Veda Krishnamurthy, who celebrated her 27th birthday on Tuesday. Having represented India in 48 ODIs and 76 T20Is, Veda received birthday wishes from her fans as well as teammates.
Talking about the resumption of cricket, England and West Indies are scheduled to lock horns in a breakthrough Test series, starting from July 8. Ahead of the series, West Indies showed solidarity towards ‘BlackLivesMatter’ movement and released a kit while extending support. Sheldon Cottrell also lauded West Indies for their move and highlighted the ‘legacy’ of the Caribbean side.
Birthday wishes also poured in for Sanath Jayasuriya on his 51st birthday. The Sri Lanka stalwart boasts an exemplary record in international cricket, having scored 14 tons in Tests and 28 in ODIs. The left-hander is one of the only two players with over 20,000 runs and 400 wickets in international cricket.

7. Virat Kohli reminisces 2014 Adelaide Test
(1/2) Throwback to this very special and important test in our journey as the test team that we are today. Adelaide 2014 was a game filled with emotion on both sides and an amazing one for people to watch too. Although we didn't cross the line being so close, it taught us that.. pic.twitter.com/BrgHL3ffyR

15. Aakash Chopra heaps praise on Rahul Dravid
Agree 100%. Wonderful hands. I also kept telling Jam to field at short-leg….but he wouldn’t come in. Too modest to admit that he was indeed the best in the playing XI at that position 🤗😇🙌 https://t.co/9OLW6lsjMQ
