The news that has been trending on social media today revolved around a very sad event. 22 jawans have been martyred and several others are missing after a Naxal attack that has left the nation in total shock. And, several Indian cricketers ranging from Suresh Raina to Virender Sehwag have offered their condolences regarding the killings.
Meanwhile, Irfan Pathan has come out with a strategy for the Rajasthan Royals (RR) outfit ahead of the 2021 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Also, Suresh Raina has posted a scintillating picture with his CSK teammates and is ready for the 14th IPL edition. Today is a very special day for Thangarasu Natarajan, as the Tamil Nadu bowler is celebrating his 30th birthday, and several of his Indian teammates have wished the left-arm seamer on his birthday.
Also, South Africa and Pakistan have locked horns in the second ODI, and Danny Morrison wants Babar Azam and Co. to successfully chase down the mammoth target of 342 that the Proteas have set for the visitors.

2. Suresh Raina wants the real culprits behind the attack on the jawans to be caught soon
Distressed to see the killing of at least 22 of our jawans by naxals in Chhattisgarh. Any life lost hurts, but for any nation, the life of its jawan is priceless. They are the real desh-bhakts. Hope the real culprits are brought to justice.
Jai Hind 🇮🇳
