The cricketing trends on social media today revolved around Shane Watson’s scintillating century in the ongoing Big Bash League (BBL). While playing for the Sydney Thunder against the Brisbane Heat at the iconic Gabba, Watson smashed 100 off just 62 balls with eight fours and six massive maximums. After sizzling in the Indian Premier League (IPL), the 37-year-old is proving his mettle in the BBL as well showing that he is not finished yet.
Unfortunately, his knock didn’t finish at the winning side as the floodlight failure at the venue led to the match finishing in no result. The Heat had lost the Bash brothers and were 10/2 after three overs when the play was stopped. However, Watson deserved all the praise coming towards him as the current and former players lauded his efforts even at this age.
Meanwhile, there was also a lot of excitement around the deciding ODI between Australia and India which will be played at the iconic MCG on Friday. Shikhar Dhawan looked determined in the video he shared in which the left-hander was concentrating hard in the nets. He looked good in the last match and will be looking to make it count in the decider.
1. Karthik congratulates Jaffer over his double century
Heartiest Congratulations to one of the classiest batsman I played with and against #WasimJaffer on yet another Double Hundred. Such a pleasure on the eyes his batting and in my opinion that pleasure was missed by everyone as he should have played for the nation for longer

2. Waugh not happy with no result
Pardon the pun after the farce at the Gabba tonite but cricket has got to come out of the dark ages. Sometimes the light is not perfect or the outfield might have a damp patch but unless it’s dangerous we’ve got to change the mindset and just play. Get on with it.
