Every year on August 13, the unique qualities of the left-handers come into the frame. The lefties are indeed special in a predominantly right-handed world.
On Tuesday, the ICC took to Twitter to conduct a poll gracing the occasion that celebrates left-handers worldwide. The council posted photos of some of the greatest left-handed batsmen and bowlers and wrote, “Let us know who your favourite left-hander is!”

After Irfan Pathan and Yusuf Pathan, Hardik and Krunal are the next pair of brothers looking to dominate in the game of Cricket. While Hardik Pandya is well set as an established part of the team across formats, Krunal Pandya is looking to cement his position in T20Is. The latter had proved a point with his outstanding performance in the T20I series in Australia last year, where he won the Man of the Series award.
Hardik, who has been a go-to player for India, was rested post the long and hectic World Cup. On the other hand, his elder brother put up a stellar show in the T20I series against West Indies.
A must-have all-rounder in T20Is, Krunal is now eyeing a spot in the ODI squad.
