The cricketing trends on social media revolved around a number of incidents. India, after fighting hard, managed to come out trumps in their opening Test versus South Africa in Visakhapatnam. The team, led by Virat Kohli, won by 203 runs to take a 1-0 lead in the series and also garner 160 points with three victories on the trot in the ICC World Test Championship. Mohammed Shami and Ravindra Jadeja were the chief destroyers. Even as the pacer ended with a five-wicket haul, Jadeja took four wickets in crucial junctures.

Shami got rid of Faf du Plessis and Quinton de Kock in the middle to break the backbone of the Proteas batting lineup. Senuran Muthusamy and Dane Piedt put on a useful ninth-wicket stand only to delay the inevitable. After the thumping triumph, the home team was showered with wishes from every nook and corner of the cricket fraternity. Ravi Ashwin became the joint-fastest bowler to 350 Test wickets along with Muttiah Muralitharan. He accomplished the feat after getting rid of Theunis de Bruyn early in the fifth day.

Rohit Sharma was rightly adjudged the Player of the Match after his twin centuries on debut as Test opener. Meanwhile, at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore, Pakistan lost the first T20I versus Sri Lanka by 64 runs. The result was a shocking one as Pakistan is ICC’s number-one ranked T20I team even as the Lankans are ranked eighth. Suresh Raina wished one and all on the festival of Durga Puja. Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan uploaded his picture from New York. Aaron Finch had lunch with his wife.
