The cricketing trends on social media today revolved around the different events and the cricketing fraternity expressed themselves. The T10 League’s second edition has entered the business end whilst some other interesting cricketing action kept all the fans entertained.
Shahid Afridi‘s exploits in the T10 league were one of the biggest talking points of the day, who single-handedly took Pakhtoons to the next stages with a 14-ball 50. The world was elated to see vintage Afridi back in full flow. Sunday will mark the culmination of the second edition as the 3rd place and the final will take place in Sharjah.
One of the most saddening parts of the day was the rumours of Nathan McCullum’s death which shattered the cricketing world for a while. But the former Kiwi came out with a tweet confirming he’s pretty healthy and alive and requested the fans to not hype these rumours. A disgusted elder brother Brendon McCullum also went on to threaten the creator of that rumour for the little moment of inconvenience he caused to his family.
The Ranji Trophy saw some exciting cricketing action as well, with Bengal, Hyderabad, Gujarat, Vidarbha and Karnataka registering some important wins. Bengal’s one-wicket win against Tamil Nadu was probably the result of the day and Manoj Tiwary’s side was lucky enough to get out of the jail and garner all six points.

मैं दुबई में हूँ और इन्मे से किसी व्यक्ति से कभी सम्पर्क नहीं हुआ!
जब यह लोग बेशर्मी से अपने कैम्पेन के नाम पर मेरा नाम धोकाधड़ी से इस्तेमाल कर लोगों को बेवक़ूफ़ बना सकते हैं,तो अंदाज़ा लगाया जा सकता है की यदि यह कहीं जीत गए तो कितना बेवक़ूफ़ बनाएँगे ! झूठों से सावधान pic.twitter.com/ykDa4S835N
