Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!
That is exactly what we saw when former Indian leg-spinner Laxman Sivaramakrishnan’s prodigy imitated him. He did that in the sideline during the TNPL match between Ruby Tricky Warriors and Lyca Kovai Kings. Here is the video that is winning hearts.
Meanwhile, Kovai Kings won by 8 wickets after they won the toss and elected to field first. Ruby Tricky Warriors posted 124 in their stipulated 20 overs. It did not look like a match-winning total then, but it was some good, tight bowling by the Kings that restricted them to a paltry 124.

Ajith Ram and Manigandhan were the pick of the bowlers, they scalped two wickets apiece. Then it was some sound batting by the Kings that saw them over the line with 38 balls to spare. It was as convincing-a-win as it gets.
Shahrukh Khan’s 67 of 40 ensured there was no looking back for the Kings. He has also been adjudicated the Man of the Match for his brilliant batting display.
Ruby Tricky Warriors are still in the second spot despite the loss with two wins from three matches, whereas Lyca Kovai Kings move up the ladder to the sixth spot in the points table with two wins in four games.
