The Ashes fever is back and as expected, quite a few cricketing trends revolved around the ongoing game. David Warner was involved in a controversial dismissal. While there seemed to be a clear gap between the bat and the ball to the naked eye, the ultra edge suggested otherwise. Thus, there were questions raised about the technology. The likes of Ryan Harris, Michael Vaughan and Mark Waugh felt that there was a gap. Aaron Finch, on the other hand, termed the umpiring a joke.
Some of the other trends revolved around Pakistan cricket. Azhar Ali congratulated Babar Azam after the latter was appointed the vice-captain of the team. Ramiz Raja didn’t seem to happy about cricketers deciding to leave red-ball cricket for white-ball cricket. Waqar Younis tweeted that he is looking forward to the stint as the bowling coach of the team. Also, Shane Warne turned 50 today. Ajinkya Rahane, Kuldeep Yadav and Vaughan wished him. The former leg-spinner also put up a short video on Instagram where he thanked everyone for their kind wishes.
1. Azhar Ali congratulated Babar Azam on being appointed as Pakistan team’s vice-captain
Congratulations @babarazam258 for being appointed as vice captain of Pakistan team all the very best brother…

2. Ramiz Raja felt that it is the failure of cricket system as players are deciding to quit Test cricket at a very young age
It’s in fact failure of the cricket system when cricketers start retiring from Test Cricket to concentrate on ODI’s and T20’s. Mohd Amir at 27 and now Wahab. Get the impression that Pak players are quite happy being dismissive of Test Cricket! Should we be worried?
