The cricketing trends on social media today was all about series wins. While the Indian team beat Windies in the third T20I to claim the three-match series 3-0, the Proteas also beat Australia 2-1 in the ODI series, the Pakistan vs New Zealand series had to end without a result with rain playing spoilsport in the final match.
India’s stand-in skipper Rohit Sharma along with the regular skipper Virat Kohli lauded the team for beating the world champions in all the matches to claim the trophy. Faf du Plessis also thanked everyone for their messages after his team’s victory down under. All that and a lot more in the trends of the day.
1. Skipper Rohit Sharma is proud of the ‘serious effort’ from the lads to clinch the T20I series against Windies

2. Sanjay Manjrekar thinks it is time Jos Buttler be moved higher up the order
Jos Buttler may bat at no 3 in next Test and not at 6/7.
Fact of life : A cushy job does not last for long.

4. Kevin Pietersen thinks knife crime should be treated the same as explosive threat
I travel on planes A LOT. I regularly get asked to be tested for explosives.
It’s 2min with nothing to hide, so it’s a case of just getting on with it!
Knife crime should be treated the same!
