Ashwin always looks on the bright side
You know what they say: when life gives you lemons, you break out the tequila and salt.
When your backs are up against the wall, lean back and enjoy the support of the wall!! Well done to the entire team and what a win that was.— Ashwin (@ashwinravi99) December 29, 2020

The missing ingredient in India's win
Mohammed Shami is revelling in India's win in the second Test even though he's out for the count for the rest of the series after he copped a Pat Cummins bouncer and fractured his arm in the first. But R Ashwin wants him to know he's being missed - he says the only sad bit of the victory is that Shami couldn't be part of it.
Thanks da thambi!! Nee illanu oru chinna varutham!! Take care !! https://t.co/T3nbJwehov— Ashwin (@ashwinravi99) December 29, 2020
Meet Lieutenant Fakhar Zaman
Fakhar Zaman's father must have the last laugh. Zaman senior had his son enrolled in the Pakistan Navy in 2007 as a last ditch attempt to get Fakhar to focus on something other than cricket. Instead he would go on to play inter-departmental matches for the navy before he broke into cricket proper. Now life has come full circle for Fakhar Zaman - he was conferred the rank of honorary lieutenant by the Pakistan Navy in a ceremony yesterday.

Virat Kohli can see into the future
Proof that Virat Kohli had 2020 vision ten years ago.
The only digits that count are the ones on the scoreboard eh, Martin Guptill?
Here's the foot that launched a thousand quips
Remember the time?
It's been a long year, so Jess Jonassen would just like to remind you what happened the last time an international match was played at the MCG before this India-Australia Test.
