The cricketing trends on the social media revolved around a number of events. Sri Lanka won the opening Test of the two-match Test series against South Africa at the Kingsmead in Durban by one run. Subsequently, the Islanders were showered with accolades from every nook and corner of the cricketing fraternity. Kusal Perera punched above his weight and churned out a stupendous knock of 153 runs from 200 balls.

The left-hander put on 78 runs with Vishwa Fernando for the final wicket to see his team through to glory. After the stupendous game of cricket, Aakash Chopra feels that if one needs to be reminded about the credibility of Test cricket, then maybe the format is dying. Angelo Mathews also expressed his delight for the national team. Michael Vaughan was awe-struck by Perera’s knock and termed it as one of the best knocks.

On February 14, at least 44 CRPF jawans were killed in the Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir. Former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir wasn’t happy and question the reasons behind the killing. Darren Sammy posted a picture with Chris Jordan, both of whom are playing in the Pakistan Super League (PSL).

Salman Butt sounded happy for Wahab Riaz, who played for Peshawar Zalmi in their match against Quetta Gladiators. Former fast bowler Waqar Younis believes that former PCB chairman Najam Sethi should have been invited for the opening ceremony of the PSL, held on February 14.
