What if cricketers start using the Sarahah App
Can you identify the senders?

An app that allows users to send anonymous (constructive) messages to others registered with the app, Sarahah is making a lot of noise on social media. While the majority of its users are in favour of the constructive platform it offers, many fear the rise of cyber bullying and trolling. Call it a self-esteem toy or a short-term cure to the lifelong question of social validation; you can love it or hate it but you just can’t ignore it.
Like Oscar Wilde once said, “Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask and he will tell you the truth.”
Here, we try to dig this a little deeper and imagine a scenario where our beloved cricketers start using this app to send their thoughts across. Now as we know there is good, bad and ugly in the world of cricket and when anonymity is guaranteed, why hold back?
1. Ravi Shastri is not breaking his head to find out the man behind the lens, the post I mean.
2. Aila! Tu kaun hai?
3. Yorkshire’s Adam Lyth was in a happy mood after rolling out a destructive 161 off just 73 balls until he received this message from someone bossing around the Universe.
4. Umar Akmal is suspicious of Mickey Arthur taking Hindi classes.
5. Morne Morkel joins the bandwagon, gets an instant message from what seems to be a close source.
6. When you are sad at being dropped but equally happy for your best friend.
7. Ravindra Jadeja knows the sender of this message. The ghost ain’t leaving him too soon.
8. The Australian skipper Steven Smith just landed in Bangladesh and the mind games started from the opposition in no time. Here is the message he received from the rival camp this morning.
Later on, the Bangladeshi Test skipper Mushfiqur Rahim, fondly known for his gentlemanly acts, helped Smith decode the message “Fours & Sixes are fun, but where are you planning to head with the trophy?”
9. Everyone knows that biscuits are banned in the Sri Lankan dressing room but captain Upul Tharanga knows a thing or two about getting the best out of his experienced players before an important series. Here is how Angelo Matthews got his hands on a pack of Hide and Seek.
10. Skipper Virat Kohli has to take a call.
Now, you are following the sport very keenly, if you managed to call out all the sender’s identity correctly, if not it still doesn’t matter, as long as you had a laugh.
