VVS Laxman wished Morne Morkel after he retired from international after the conclusion of the fourth Test against Australia in Johannesburg. Saqlain Mushtaq labelled Darren Sammy as the best captain currently going around in the shortest format of the game after his exploits for Peshawar Zalmi in the recently concluded Pakistan Super League (PSL).
Mpumelelo Mbangwa was delighted to see Kagiso Rabada and Pat Cummins swim together after the end of the closely fought Test series between South Africa and Australia. Mohammed Hafeez recalled his debut day as he had burst into the international scene on the same day and thanked everyone for their support throughout his career. Darren Sammy relished the two-year anniversary of T20I triumphs of Windies Men’s and Women’s team in World T20 in India.
Gautam Gambhir lashed out at Shahid Afridi after took a dig at ‘India based Kashmir’ for the reason of the violence in Jammu and Kashmir state. Yusuf Pathan is enjoying his stay in Hyderabad as he gears up for the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). David Lloyd praised New Zealand for a perfect rearguard action put by their tailenders in the second and final Test match against England. He was also happy for the way the pitch played and credited England for trying hard to win the Test match.

7. Gambhir lashes out at Lala
Media called me for reaction on @SAfridiOfficial tweet on OUR Kashmir & @UN. What’s there to say? Afridi is only looking for @UN which in his retarded dictionary means “UNDER NINTEEN” his age bracket. Media can relax, @SAfridiOfficial is celebrating a dismissal off a no- ball!!!
