Royal Challengers Bangalore picking up a win at long last in the 2019 Indian Premier League, and the new season of County Championship kept social media busy, along with plenty of other cricketing action over the past week.

Let's start with the most recent. In the IPL, finally, Virat Kohli's Royal Challengers Bangalore registered a win, after suffering six consecutive defeats.Β 

Yuzvendra Chahal, one of the lynchpins of the win, dedicated his game-changer trophy to senior Chahal!

And before any of that happened, look who had arrived at the camp. Will he be the carrier of good luck going forward?

In the other "royal" contingent, Jofra Archer seemed like he had his mind on other things. He still managed to bag three wickets, though, including the big ones of both the Mumbai openers - Quinton de Kock and Rohit Sharma.

Meanwhile, Jos Buttler looked typically flossy as he made an effortless, match-winning 43-ball 89!

Over in Zimbabwe, where the men's national team are busy playing a four-match one-day international series against the United Arab Emirates, their women's team's recent triumph in the Victoria tri-series final over Uganda didn't go unnoticed.

In the County Championship, it was time for celebration as a returning Haseeb Hameed made a century against Middlesex.Β 

Although with the Ashes looming in the near future, there were other candidates trying to make a statement.

As for the England Test captain, he had a fun day out at the cricket as well.

And finally, the English summer is here, and so are the Grays of Thrones!
