England’s young bloke Dominic Sibley got to his maiden Test century in the second Test against South Africa at the Newlands in Cape Town. Thus, some of the cricketing trends revolved around the 24-year-old. The likes of Jason Roy, Ben Duckett, Sam Billings and the other players congratulated him on this achievement.
Meanwhile, former Proteas cricketer AB de Villiers opined that all three results are possible in this match. Dale Steyn asked his followers if James Anderson gave a reason for his longer run-up as he has been away with the BBL. Herschelle Gibbs expressed surprise that Joe Root has used defensive tactics on a challenging wicket.
In other trends, former Indian captain Kapil Dev celebrated his birthday today. Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Sharma, Mayank Agarwal and Sachin Tendulkar took it to social media to wish the legend. Upon touching down in Indore for the second T20I, wrist-spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal shared selfies.
