‘Tula Maanla Re Thakur’: Virat Kohli’s Tweet from 2019 Goes Viral After Shardul Smashes Maiden IPL Fifty

Shardul Thakur came in form with Maiden IPL Fifty on Thursday night when Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) locked horns with Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the Eden Gardens. The ace Indian all-rounder came out to bat when half the team was back in the hut at 89. The Knight Riders had lost four of their batsmen to single-digit scores, with Mandeep Singh and Andre Russell getting golden ducks. It looked like RCB were in the driver’s seat but then Shardul started his show with the willow.

The Mumbai boy bravely led the KKR fightback along with Rinku Singh. The duo shared a 103-run partnership for the sixth wicket as the Knight Riders posted a mammoth 204/7 in 20 overs. In due course, Shardul also hit his maiden half-century in the IPL. He wanted to remain unbeaten and wanted to end the innings but was dismissed by Siraj in the final over. Shardul scored 68 off 29 balls, for which he received a standing ovation from his teammates on his way back to the dressing room.

Shardul’s stormy knock not only set Eden Gardens on fire but also raised the heat on social media. KKR fans were over the cloud when the all-rounder was smashing RCB all over the park. meanwhile an old tweet Virat Kohli Praising Shardul went viral on Twitter.

“Shardul Thakur returned from South Africa with the Indian Cricket team in 2018 on an Emirates flight. He immediately headed to the Andheri railway station and boarded a local train to Palghar, which he followed for most of his life. Lord Shardul for a reason,” wrote Mohan.

Shardul himself was surprised by his power hitting nine fours and three sixes in his strokes.

“I don’t even know where it came from. Looking at the scorecard everyone would say we are struggling. But your subconscious mind takes over. To do that at the highest level, you have to have the skills too, but we work hard in the nets as well.

“The coaching staff does throw downs, and gives us range-hitting options. And you know the pitches; They always suit the batsmen, don’t they? It was a perfect day,” he said.
