This #SantoshTrophy win by Kerala brings back memories from the last couple of times they won it. Remember pestering the parents to buy me the Mathrubhumi Sports magazine with pictures of Asif Saheer & Co in it #KERvBEN— Vishnu Prasad (@visheprasad) April 1, 2018
#Kerala wins its 6th #SantoshTrophy crown beating West Bengal. A win for Kerala after many years. Back to its glory days! Remembering those years when we used to get school holiday whenever Kerala won the trophy!! @ShashiTharoor @sachin_rt— Girin Govind (@GirinGovind) April 1, 2018
