What social media talked about this week: Left-handed Kohli to Umar Akmal's ban
This week was a stormy one for social media. The passing away of two great Bollywood actors – Irrfan Khan and Rishi Kapoor - and former India footballer and Bengal Ranji Cricketer, Chuni Goswami, was mourned by the cricketing fraternity. But as is the norm, life moves on. So, there were discussions on cricket, the road ahead for tournaments, and much more.
Virat Kohli’s captaincy style has a new admirer.
The secrets of these morning rituals were revealed by Yuzi on RCB’s special fitness show Bold is fit.
Rohit Sharma turned 33 on 30th April and the captain was quick to wish the opener.
Happy B'day Rohit @ImRo45. God bless you with good health and happiness and many more elegant innings. Stay safe stay healthy.— Virat Kohli (@imVkohli) April 30, 2020
Umar Akmal’s ban was another talking point.
To our east and to our west, I saw two extraordinary talents. Mohd Ashraful and Umar Akmal. It is who you are and what you make of your talent that determines how far you go. Talent by itself is so so inadequate.— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) April 27, 2020
Perhaps the best cricket video from this week.
Is this the best ‘cricket in lockdown’ effort yet?— Wisden (@WisdenCricket) April 28, 2020
Brilliant from @gunnarbarnes/TikTok 👏👏
Another trend from this week. Does that cover drive look even more beautiful from a left-hander Kohli?

And the International Cricket Council won us over with this one.

If you can’t spot Rahul Dravid in this, are you even a cricket fan?
We found out something that made us respect this Challenger even more!
