The cricketing trends on social media revolved around a number of events. The third day of the fourth Test between India and Australia took place at The Gabba in Brisbane. Though the visiting team, led by Ajinkya Rahane, conceded a lead of 33 runs, they were showered with praises, especially due to the resilience showed by their batters lower down the batting order. Their batsmen showed grit and character.

Shardul Thakur and Washington Sundar put on a partnership of 123 runs for the seventh wicket. Thakur showed the damage he can do with the bat in hand, scoring 67 runs with nine fours and two sixes. He was aggressive to the extent that he brought up his half-century with a massive six over the long-on region. He didn’t mind using his feet to the veteran off-spin bowler Nathan Lyon.

On Saturday, Hardik and Krunal Pandya’s father Himanshu passed away due to a cardiac arrest. Krunal had to leave the bio-secure bubble of Baroda. Before leaving, he took Baroda to the top of the point. Abhinav Mukund feels that T Natarajan can be proud of himself after making his debut for Team India across formats. Brad Hogg reckons that Australia are favourites to win the Brisbane Test.
