It was a busy day for the cricket enthusiasts, with two Test matches poised for an interesting end on Wednesday (December 6).

India would have hoped to clinch the home series 2-0, but Sri Lanka put up a stiff fight on the fifth and final day at Feroz Shah Kotla.

Dhananjaya DeSilva scored a gritty ton to lead the resistance.

The series was full of intense moments, and Virat Kohli led the hosts from the front, racking up a mountain of runs.

Pollution and smog, which made the headlines on the first four days, seemed to clear on Wednesday.

Despite the draw, India took the three-Test series 1-0.

With the series in South Africa coming up next, India would be confident with their results this year.

Over to the Ashes.

England supporters were optimistic at the start of the final day’s play in Adelaide.

But as it turned out, it wasn’t long before the Australians started celebrating.

Kevin Pietersen and Michael Vaughan were devastated by the turn of events.

Shane Warne was having a great time watching England crumble.

Soon, the writing was on the wall, and it was only a matter of time before Australia went 2-0 up in the series.

As expected, it wasn’t long before the post-mortem.

December 6 is full of birthdays.

Jasprit Bumrah, who broke into the Indian Test side, turned 24.

Ravindra Jadeja was also celebrating his birthday.

Karun Nair, who turned 26, and RP Singh, who celebrated his 32nd birthday, were the others in the list.

And to end, here’s a picture from Mathew Hayden’s catch-up session with Ashish Nehra.
