May 24, 2023, mark it in gold. Sorry, correction, Blue and Gold. In less than 30 minutes, a virtually unknown fast bowler from a tennis-ball background in Uttarakhand, became a household name: 5 wickets for just 5 runs in an IPL Eliminator. The name: Akash Madhwal.

Getting the ball to skid and zip through the floodgates of Lucknow Super Giants, he carried us on his shoulders from Chennai to Ahmedabad. From the Eliminator to the Qualifier. And the world of Social Media was all love for the 29-year-old.

Here’s a look at how the cricket fraternity and members of our Fa-MI-ly lauded the heroics of Mr. Engineer.
