October 19th marked a special day in the 2017 calendar since billions of people all around the globe celebrated the auspicious festival of Diwali. The cricketing fraternity was also engrossed in the Diwali celebrations. While Indian batsman Cheteshwar Pujara preferred to spend the day with his better half, the man of the moment AB de Villiers wore his Mont Blanc items on the day.
Not only Indians but the overseas stars enjoyed the day as well. Universe boss Chris Gayle wished everyone a Happy Diwali, just like Parthiv Patel, while the ever so young cricketer Brad Hogg had some sweet delicacies in his home to get a feel of India. Coming to AB de Villiers, his 176-run of yesterday was praised all over the world. AB’s skipper Faf du Plessis was ecstatic with his side winning the series comfortably, while Adam Gilchrist admitted that with AB in it, the cricketing world is a much better place.
The in-form Baroda batsman Yusuf Pathan is overjoyed to be an owner of a brand new iPhone 8 plus now, and he was busy clicking pictures. Former Indian skipper Mohammed Azharuddin was honoured to receive the prestigious Rajiv Gandhi Sadbhavna Award. Now moving on from the game of cricket, English pacer Chris Tremlett enjoyed his time in a basketball court, while another former speedster Mitchell Johnson tried out his luck at golfing. All said and done, now let us have a look at the cricketing trends on social media today.
