With a fair sprinkling of star dust on either side — Chris Gayle, Virat Kohli, Shane Watson and AB de Villiers of the Royal Challengers and David Warner, Yuvraj Singh and Shikhar Dhawan of Surnisers Hyderabad, the outcome of the IPL final — with both sides eyeing their first title — could be fashioned by a singular demonstration of genius by one of them.

IT WAS a scene so unexpected; it seemed chimerical. Virat Kohli and David Warner in the middle of a cricket ground sharing a laugh if not a guffaw. That’s not what we expect from those two after all. Generally whenever the two spirited, bordering on combustible, stars have shared TV time together near a cricket pitch, they’ve been in the midst of an impassioned verbal dust-up.

Four money shots that have made Virat Kohli intimidating
