The cricketing trends on social media revolved around a number of events. Former Pakistan off-spin bowler Saeed Ajmal celebrated his 42nd birthday and he was showered with wishes from the cricketing fraternity. The tweaker was one of the greatest spinners in the country and retired from cricket back in November 2017. Babar Azam, the prolific run-scorer in the Pakistan cricket team, also turned 25 and his teammates wished him on the auspicious occasion. He is currently busy playing the National T20 Cup for Central Punjab.
Her didn’t have a great day with the bat and got out for four against Northern Pakistan. In the same game, Ahmed Shehzad scored a century and took his team to victory in a chase of 223 runs. Salman Butt lauded Shehzad for the knock and also appreciated Central Punjab on the victory in Faisalabad. Meanwhile, Shane Watson’s Instagram account got hacked and he thanked his fans for helping him out. Previously, his Twitter account also got hacked. During the tournament, Shoaib Akhtar was happy after meeting Waqar Younis.
Sourav Ganguly is all set to become the president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and he is continuing to get wishes. Former England cricketer Kevin Pietersen sounded happy for the retired Indian skipper. Former South African cricketer Jonty Rhodes felt satisfied after returning to Mumbai. Paras Khadka resigned as the captain of the Nepal team and Sandeep Lamichhane couldn’t stop praising him.

6. Jonty Rhodes feels good to be back in Mumbai
Most views of Mumbai will include a cricket “venue”; either formal, with sight screen and boundaries, or any open space (very rare) where a ball can be bowled and hit #incredibleindia #mumbai #goodtobeback pic.twitter.com/jqQtP7Bzvn

7. Gautam Gambhir conscious about safety of women
Safety of women cannot be attached to elections. It is the most serious issue to me. I have been working constantly to have a network of CCTV cameras throughout my constituency so that women never feel afraid. We have gotten one step closer! pic.twitter.com/weTDj4ZlIF
