The cricketing trends on social media revolved around a number of events. Shahid Afridi, the former Pakistan cricketer, celebrated his birthday. On the auspicious occasion, he was showered with wishes from the cricketing fraternity. Babar Azam, the skipper of the Pakistan team across all three formats, wished Afridi on his birthday. Babar is currently plying his trade for the Karachi Kings in the 2021 edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
The Kings won the 2020 edition of the tournament, beating Lahore Qalandars in the final. Afridi, on the other hand, is playing for the Multan Sultans. Naseem Shah, Umar Gul, and Ahmed Shehzad, among others, also wished Afridi. Afridi last played international cricket back in 2018 during a match at the iconic Lord’s Cricket Stadium. Rashid Khan, the Afghanistan spinner, who played alongside him at the Home of Cricket, also wished him.
Popular commentator Alan Wilkins also sent his wishes for the veteran. In the meantime, Marcus Trescothick has decided to leave Somerset after serving them for three decades. Tom Banton, one of the club’s young cricketers, was saddened by the development.
Russel Arnold, the former Sri Lanka cricketer, sounded excited about his stint in the Road Safety World series in India. In the meantime, the Indian cricketers are practicing hard before the fourth and final Test against England, starting March 4 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
