Captain wishes coach

50th birthday?

Mahela Jayawardene’s long-time partner on the field, Kumar Sangakkara took a dig at his best mate by wishing him 50th birthday.

Jayawardene prominently featured in the web series ‘Cricket fever’ which documented the journey of Mumbai Indians in 2018. The MI Paltan did not miss wishing their coach.

Mr. Cricket

Making his Test debut at the age of 28, Michael Hussey left no stone unturned in securing his place amongst the Australian greats. For his exploits in all three formats of the game, Hussey was also nicknamed as ‘Mr. Cricket’ although the cricketer himself is not too fond of it.
