Azhar Ali and Grant Elliott’s Sindhi song
Ah, the best thing about these T20 leagues is all the cross-cultural interactions and the art that comes out of it.
Dear Pakistan after Punjabi, Pushto and Balochi we had a lot of you asking for a Sindhi dub so we proudly present a Sindhi Dub by @grantelliottnz @AzharAli_ and I. So Keep sharing the love. Keep enjoying. #HBLPSLV #PZvKK #HBLPSL #HBLPSL5 #HBLPSL2020 #PakistanZindabad pic.twitter.com/JfHI0PdZW5

Rashid Khan’s chopper lifts off

Rohit Sharma’s El Clásico trip
While the Indian team were being pounded into the dust in New Zealand, Rohit Sharma, who injured his calf in the last T20I and was forced to sit out the rest of the tour, went on a well-deserved holiday to Madrid. Sharma, the brand ambassador for La Liga in India, got the chance to catch El Clásico at Real Madrid’s home stadium of Santiago Bernabéu, something that’s apparently been on his bucket list. Wonder if he picked up some useful tips – in 2010, he injured his ankle during football warm-ups on the morning of what would have been his Test debut and had to wait another three and a half years to get a Test cap.
Thaladega nights: the ballad of MS Dhoni
Pfft who cares about series whitewashes and World Cups and international cricket. The IPL is less than a month away and MS Dhoni just landed in Chennai!! If you’re not giddy with excitement, you must have gone unsold in the auction.
