It was an eventful Tuesday (December 6) in the cricket world. Australia thrashed New Zealand by 116 runs to claim the Chappell-Hadlee series 2-0 even as Ravindra Jadeja, Karun Nair, RP Singh and Jasprit Bumrah all celebrated birthdays.

RP ‘Swing’ follows.

Karun Nair was turning 25.

And, let’s not forget Andrew Flintoff.

Fresh air, a good view and Cheteshwar Pujara.
