As the squads for the much-awaited clash between Asia XI and World XI were announced, Twitter was flooded with tweets regarding the same. Six Indian players including skipper Virat Kohli are set to don the Asia XI jersey in the highly-anticipated clash against the World XI. Meanwhile, World XI, led by former South African skipper Faf du Plessis, has many batting stalwarts like Chris Gayle, Ross Taylor and Kieron Pollard in their arsenal.
KL Rahul, who has probably solved the No.4 conundrum that has been haunting Team Indian since a prolonged period, shared a still while sweating it out in the gym. Sanju Samson also followed the trend and posted a video while working it out in the gym.
Kedar Jadhav, who is known for his selfies on social handles, also uploaded a picture while donning shades. Meanwhile, Twitter was also filled with hilarious memes post US President Donald Trump mentioned the name of Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli in his speech.
Former England skipper Michael Vaughan also joined the bandwagon and took a dig at Trump’s hilarious enunciation of Sachin Tendulkar’s name. The former English skipper also took a dig at Fakhar Zaman and tweeted that he wants to see how Trump pronounces the Pakistan international’s name. New Zealand all-rounder James Neesham, on the other hand, defended Trump by tweeting that one cannot correctly pronounce names that they’ve never heard before.

9. Jason Gillespie feels sometimes debates are good to come out on a conclusion
The whole “spirit of cricket” debate brings about so much discussion- really good discussion and I respect everyone’s opinion on this. Because there are lots of interpretations of the “SOC”, it stands to reason to simply observe the laws of the game. Just my opinion. Cheers👍🏽 https://t.co/HAoP9VEiYI
