The 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) will commence in 3 days’ time, and several cricketers have expressed their excitement ahead of the marquee T20 tournament. Two Indian cricketing behemoths, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma are looking forward to the inaugural match of IPL 2021, which will take place between Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Mumbai Indians (MI).
Suryakumar Yadav and Jasprit Bumrah are also getting ready for the marquee clash as well. The second ODI between Pakistan and South Africa saw Fakhar Zaman dismissed in controversial circumstances, and the legendary Shoaib Akhtar has offered his opinion on the matter. Harbhajan Singh has taken a cheeky dig at the decision taken by the Delhi Govt. to impose a night curfew.
6th April 2021 also marks the 7th anniversary of Sri Lanka’s epic triumph in the 2014 T20 World Cup final. Led by a blistering 52* off 35 deliveries by batting legend Kumar Sangakkara, the Sri Lankan outfit beat the MS Dhoni-led Indian side with 6 wickets to spare to lift their maiden T20 World Cup. And, a few Sri Lankan cricketers have congratulated the Sri Lankan side on this historic day. So, let us get started on our social media voyage….
