The cricketing trends on social media revolved around a number of events. As the second Test between South Africa and India is underway the whole day was surrounding the game which is being played at the MCA Stadium in Pune. On Saturday, the Indian bowlers showed brilliance in their traits, due to which the Proteas had to bow down in front of them.

The biggest positive for Faf du Plessis was the performance of their tail. They came strong and fought against the hosts’ bowling for more than forty overs with Keshav Maharaj turning out to be the hero for the visitors. Firstly, he achieved a milestone of taking 100 Test wickets and then knitted a brilliant knock of 72 runs and put on a strong partnership with Vernon Philander.

Meanwhile, a weird incident took place during the encounter as an unknown spectator from the crowd crossed the boundary rope and ran towards Rohit Sharma. The occurring wasn’t taken lightly by the cricketers and they came out on social media in order to raise their opinion over the awkward instance that occurred during the match.

On the other hand, Sanju Samson scored a double ton, playing for Kerala versus Goa in the Vijay Hazare Trophy. Earlier, he didn’t have a century in List-A cricket tally but on Saturday, the 24-year-old pounced on the double. He was greeted with fans and even Congress Leader Shashi Tharoor asked the Indian selectors to take note of him.
