Sir Ravinder Jadeja (@SirJadeja) has spilled the beans on how the Kohli vs Gayle battle is going to play out later tonight.
The parody account named after the Indian cricketer – who even captain MS Dhoni referred to as Sir Jadeja after one of his match-winning heroics – has shared a video of India’s Virat Kohli and West Indies’ Chris Gayle ‘warming up’ through their Twitter handle.
Watch it here:
Jokes apart, these are the two most important batsmen for their respective sides today, and every bowler worth his salt playing the match today will be eyeing one of the two coveted wickets to improve the chances of their team making it to Sunday’s finals.
Both India and West Indies have had some close encounters in the series, but India will be on a high after beating Australia in a well-fought match.
On the other hand, West Indies have had to face the ignominy of being defeated by novices Afghanistan in their last (inconsequential) encounter, and will be seething to win back some pride by beating the favourites India in their home.
The match starts at 5.30pm UAE time – you can catch all the action live right here at Emirates247.com.
