The weekly SK Cricket Social Round-Up: September 18-22
Find out what your favourite cricketers said or did last week on social media.
Social media provides a wonderful platform for cricket stars to directly engage with their fans all over the world. So, we at Sportskeeda, decided to take a look at what your favourite cricketers have been doing or saying during the last five days.
No pain, no gain for Virat!
Virat Kohli’s gruelling training regime is well known to us, but what we also now know is that the Indian skipper loves taking selfies. Virat enjoys an enormous following on social media, and he makes sure he doesn’t disappoint his fans by constantly updating his Instagram profile. He posted one recently, after a tiring day of practice ahead of the New Zealand series. In the picture, he can be seen with another workaholic from Team India, Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
Game of Drones!
Chris Gayle takes his first picture using a drone, and asks fans to spot him in the picture. Isn’t the Carribean marauder a master at playing the Game of Drones?
Never forget your roots!
We all remember stories of playing cricket with our friends in our backyards, while dreaming of playing for India some day. But, only a select few realise their dreams of representing the country. Rohit Sharma’s journey as a cricketer started at the famous Azad Maidan in Churchgate. He posted an image on Instagram, reminiscing his younger days as an aspiring Indian cricketer.
De Kock ties the knot
Quinton de Kock married his longtime girlfriend Sasha Hurley in Mauritius last week. His wedding bash was attended by the whole South African team. He posted images of the wedding on Instagram, and in one of those pictures, we can find Ab de Villiers, JP Duminy, and Chris Morris. Yes, there’s David Miller in the background too! Any guesses what he is trying to convey?
KP’s day out
Kevin Pieterson might not be playing international cricket anymore, but he is surely making sure that he stays fit. He posted a video on Instagram, where he can be seen doing the bench dips, working out those triceps and shoulders. Eyeing a comeback, maybe?
Dial 6-6-6-6-6-6 for Yuvi
Yuvraj Singh reminisced his six sixes of Stuart Broad on Instagram, much to the delight of the fans. The post also had a hashtag Ywcfashion, an abbreviation for You We Can Fashion, a fashion label that Yuvraj launched recently.
