The cricketing trends on social media revolved around a number of events. Today South Africa and India started off with the final Test against the hosts. Faf du Plessis brought Temba Bavauma to partner him during the toss as a proxy tosser. The Proteas bowlers started off their day with a bang by taking the first two wickets at a score of 16 of the hosts.

Later, Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane stole the show. Before the day’s game was called off due to rain Rohit was playing at 117 whereas Rahane was at 83*. Rabada was the best bowler of the day who took two out of the three wickets on Day-1. Indian skipper remained unsuccessful in scoring big runs and got out at 12 runs. Today Shahbaz Nadeem also made his debut and Indian cricketer Suresh Raina wished him for his latest achievement.


Fans came out in order to pour wishes over Rohit and players like Irfan Pathan, Aakash Chopra and VVS Laxman also wished him on playing such great innings. With just one day to go in The Hundred’s draft, Mahela Jayawardena is eagerly waiting to be the part of it.
