The cricketing trends on social media were dominated with the birthday wishes for veteran Indian cricketer Cheteshwar Pujara. Pujara turned 31 today and received good wishes from the cricket fraternity. Aakash Chopra, Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman, and Rishabh Pant lined up to wish the run machine of the Indian cricket team.
While Pujara’s success in Test cricket makes him a legend, another Test match that has been grabbing the headlines is Australia vs Sri Lanka Test at the Gabba. Angelo Mathews praised Suranga Lakmal for his good show in the first innings. The battle at the venue was intense and heated up, and Shane Warne literally felt the Australian heat that touched 46 degrees.
Meanwhile, Pakistani skipper Sarfraz Ahmed, who has been facing the heat of the fans for his racial abuse row, apologised Andile Phehlukwayo in person. He hopes that the South African public would forgive him too, for his unintended remarks. On another note, Harmanpreet Kaur of the India Women team caught up with her idol, Rohit Sharma, in New Zealand, and was quick to share a picture on Twitter.
Here are the cricketing trends on the social media today:
