SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) kept their pie fighting trend going, with Jason Holder the last to fall victim. The Barbados 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 halfway through the IPL, replacing the injured Mitchell Marsh. SRH posted a video of the birthday celebration on Twitter captioning it as: “Another birthday, another cake smashed! Happy birthday again, @ Jaseholder98 #OrangeArmy #KeepRising”.

In the video Holder says, “Hey guys! Thanks for all the birthday wishes. I really appreciate it. Keep supporting us, playoff game tomorrow.”
SRH has gone viral with their cake fight videos during the current tournament, with David Warner usually at the center of attention. Now it was Holder’s turn, who had smeared cake on his face.
