The cricketing trends on social media revolved around a number of events. The second T20I between India and Bangladesh took place at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot. The hosts won the toss and elected to field on a pitch, which generally favours the team, batting second. The decision might also been because dew was forecasted to settle in, especially in the second half. The hosts were rusty to start with in the mandatory powerplay, but pulled things back in the second half of the Tigers innings.

In the end, Bangladesh could only manage 153 for the loss of six wickets in their allotted 20 overs. Opener Mohammad Naim top scored for the visitors with 36 runs. For India, leg-spin bowler Yuzvendra Chahal was the most successful with the wickets of Soumya Sarkar and Mushfiqur Rahim. It was also Rohit Sharma’s 100th T20I and on the special moment, Sourav Ganguly, the president of the BCCI, congratulated him. Irfan Pathan seemed concerned about Khaleel Ahmed, who was again taken for runs.


Smriti Mandhana became the fastest Indian to accomplish 2,000 ODI runs and RP Singh, the former fast bowler, lauded her. Mayank Agarwal went on a dinner date with his loved one and shared an adorable picture. Ian Bell was over the moon after coming back to India. Jhulan Goswami congratulated the India Women’s team after the victory over the West Indies women. Tino Best posted a video where he was seen working hard in the gym. Virat Kohli posted some beautiful picture with Anushka Sharma.
