Virat Kohli is showing the right signs to become a successful businessman, Tillakaratne Dilshan bids adieu but with a whimper, and, on Friday (September 9), we remember Sachin Tendulkar’s first giant step towards One-Day International greatness on this day 22 years ago.

Let’s start with Kohli. If you remember the Bernie Ecclestone pub incident from 2010 and how he turned it into an amazing advertisement for Hublot, you’ll see shades of that business acumen in Kohli.

Here’s R Ashwin’s cry for help.

Elsewhere, it was Tillakaratne Dilshan’s last day in office for Sri Lanka. It wasn’t a good one, but it didn’t matter because he has had enough good ones to last a long time.

Dilshan would have been happy to have his old friend in the stands.

On to Tendulkar now, and the first time you see the number of years it has been, you’re going to say ‘no, it can’t be 22 years …’. But, by the end of it, you’d see that it wouldn’t matter even if it were more because time stood still for this man at one point.

Meanwhile, the Warne household continues to party it up. #boysnight

Ah, the joy of new shoes.

So, Ben Stokes has inked the deal and he seems rather kicked about it.

That picture says a $1000 more than a thousand words, but let’s just take Stuart Broad’s word for it.

Martin Guptill’s caught the Ben and Jerry fever.

Keeping the ice cream truck rolling, Chris Gayle has been speaking of this party for a while now.

Here comes Virender Sehwag’s tweet for the day. Unfortunately, he doesn’t indulge us with humour for a change. Just a stern observation.

Everything you need to know about a pull through Aakash Chopra’s eyes. Happy pulling.

Matthew Hayden can’t shake off that South Indian feeling, clearly.
