The cricketing trends on the social media revolved around a number of events. Virat Kohli has severely been bashed after his ‘leave India’ comment to a supporter. The Indian skipper has come out and remarked that he believes in freedom of choice and wished everyone on the festive season. Indian fast-bowler Siddarth Kaul shared a motivational quote mentioning the past, present and the future.
The likes of Keaton Jennings and Ben Foakes scored centuries against Sri Lanka and they were appreciated by cricketer turned commentators Russel Arnold and Kevin Pietersen respectively. Former Australian fast bowler Brett Lee turned 42 and retired Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar and many of them wished him on the auspicious occasion. Lee also thanked everyone for their love and support.
Ramiz Raza is concerned about Pakistan’s batting and how it would perform in the South Africa tour later this year. All-rounder Mohammad Hafeez bids adieu to Peshawar Zalmi after playing for the franchise ever since the inaugural edition in 2016. English limited-overs skipper Eoin Morgan posted a picture along with wife Tara Ridgway.
Indian fast bowler Ishant Sharma wished everyone a very Happy Diwali. Sikandar Raza was heartbroken after 47 people died in an accident in Zimbabwe. Shakib Al Hasan and Ummey Ahmed Shishir’s daughter Alaina Hasan Abri turned three years old and the Bangladesh all-round cricketer was over the moon on his daughter’s birthday.
1. Virat Kohli ‘all for freedom’
I guess trolling isn't for me guys, I'll stick to getting trolled! 😁
I spoke about how "these Indians" was mentioned in the comment and that's all. I’m all for freedom of choice. 🙏 Keep it light guys and enjoy the festive season. Love and peace to all. ✌😊

I remember this evening like it was yesterday, I remember sitting there with torn tendons in my shoulder and a torn lat muscle. I remember thinking I was never going to play again, fast forward 10 months and I’m back doing the thing I really love and that’s entertaining and playing cricket. Trust the process and the work. You always enjoy the sunshine more after a bit of rain. Unless you live in Cape Town, then you want it to rain for a few days. 😂🤣 #tb #trusttheprocess #faith #alhamdulillah #capetown #throwback

11. Ramiz Raja worried about Pakistani batting
When will Pakistan batsmen & batting staff realise that batting woes stem from lack of ability & technique against the short ball..Not a single batsman in this team pulls or hooks…not even good at leaving them. Top order will be gobbled up in SA if they don’t pay heed to it.
