The cricketing trends on social media today were all about the ICC Awards. The International Cricket Council (ICC) announced the annual awards for the year 2018. It was Indian skipper Virat Kohli who ran through with all the major trophies. After a phenomenal year he was the ICC Test player of the year, ICC ODI player of the year as well as the Sir Garfield Sobers Award – ICC Cricketer of the Year.
All the cricketers from around the world rose to applaud the Indian skipper for his phenomenal achievement. There were also others talking about the whole of ICC teams as well as the South Africa vs Pakistan ODI. All that and a lot more in the trends of the day.

4. Ramiz Raja is disappointed to see the Pakistan team tamed by the short ball once again, thinks it is really difficult for them to be a top team otherwise
Painful to see Pakistan been subsided by short ball again.. difficult to make it as top grade team if this is not sorted.. and it’s not difficult to get over this technical flaw.. provided it is seen & accepted as an issue by the players and think tank!

10. Aakash opines that it is a great opportunity for Rohit Sharma to prove a point as the last time he didn’t score a hundred in an ODI series was vs New Zealand at home
Rohit has scored a century in every ODI series/tournament for a while….the last time he didn’t….was against NZ at home. He’s got a point to prove too. Subplots add zing to the main plot further. #NZvInd #CantWait
