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.
Pakistan former pacer Shoaib Akhtar is angry with the goof-up that took place when a dancing video of the team and announcement of new captains was done by PCB at the same time.

One more brilliant 💯 from Rohit. Enjoyed the technique & application he showed in the 1st session. Also liked the positive intent from Rahane especially against the spinners. #INDvSA @StarSportsIndia pic.twitter.com/vrtxat3yD5

7. Shoaib Akhtar takes a sly dig on PCB
Ahhh. Only if PCB knew what to do when.
Dancing Social media post was a big goof up, posting at the same time as announcement of change of captaincy. You cant afford to do such blunders as the governing body of the most followed sport of the country.

8. Aakash Chopra rates the inning of Rohit Sharma in 3rd Test as his best
Rohit has scored three centuries in this series but this one has to be the best by a fair margin. It wasn’t easy to see through the first session…and then…him activating ‘beast’ mode is a sight. Nobody hits sweeter sixes than him. Ro’ Superhit’ Sharma 👏👏 #indvsa

I think to many people are doubting Peter Moores. I have to agree with @lukewright204 on this one. He is one of the best coaches I have worked with. If you look at his record then only will you realise how good he is. #guncoach
