SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) kept their cake fight trend going, with Jason Holder the latest to fall victim to it. The Barbadian cricketer turned 29 on Thursday, and is currently in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020. The all-rounder arrived midway through the IPL, as a replacement for injured Mitchell Marsh. SRH posted a video of the birthday celebration on Twitter, and captioned it as, “Another birthday, another cake smashed! Happy birthday once again, @Jaseholder98 #OrangeArmy #KeepRising”.
