A plethora of topics were discussed by various cricketers from around the world, and let us look at them in the cricketing trends on social media today. Today marks the 64th birthday of legendary Pakistan cricketer Javed Miandad, and the likes of Ahmed Shahzad and Hasan Ali have wished Miandad on his special day.
Devon Conway scored a classic 80 off 143 deliveries for New Zealand in the 2nd Test against England, and Murali Kartik is reminded of Indian batting legend Sourav Ganguly when he sees Conway wielding the willow. Shane Warne has questioned why the England side has not picked a spinner in their playing XI in the 2nd Test against the Black Caps.
A number of cricketers have also offered their thoughts on the pulsating French Open semifinal encounter that took place between Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal on 11th June 2021. In a marathon match that lasted for more than 4 hours, Novak Djokovic beat Rafael Nadal in 4 sets to advance to the summit clash of the 2021 French Open. Djokovic will take on Stefanos Tsitsipas in the final on 13th June 2021.

3. Murali Kartik ponders on the similarities between Devon Conway and Sourav Ganguly
Is there a lot of #GodOnTheOffSide touch and resemblance to Dean Conway not to forget the similarities to a Lords debut & a century there in.. Beautiful to watch

4. Shane Warne questions England for not picking a specialist spinner in their playing XI against New Zealand
Feel for my fellow spinners in county cricket. If u don’t pick a spinner at Edgbaston-then when ? Edgbaston & the Gabba are the best pitches in the world to bowl spin. I looked forward to Edgbaston as much as the Gabba. Negative again from the poms @SkyCricket @MichaelVaughan !

5. Brad Hogg highlights the importance of the swinging ball in Test cricket
Importance of a ball swinging in Test Cricket has been on display #ENGvNZ. Seeing the ball beat the outside edge early on in a batsman's innings, the batsman fighting for survival, then once settled playing some awesome cricket shots. Bring on day 3. #Cricket

10. Brad Hogg opines that the New Zealand batting lineup is not just about Kane Williamson
Can't just talk about Williamson in the New Zealand batting line up, they look as though they have a few others to fill the void. Enjoyed Young and Conway last night against a world class attack. They keep producing. #ENGvNZ
