The cricketing trends on social media today revolved around Pakistan and India. It was result day after the general elections in Pakistan and as it was predicted former cricketer Imran Khan’s party PTI won the most number of seats. Though they didn’t touch the magic figure of 137 it is expected that with support from other candidates Imran will take oath as the next Prime Minister of the country. Most Pakistani cricketers posted messages to congratulate the World Cup-winning captain on the occasions.

England named their 13-man squad for the first Test match against India and Adil Rashid was included in the squad which wasn’t taken well by someone like Michael Vaughan. On the Indian side, it was Kargil Vijay Divas and a lot of Indian cricketers took the opportunity to salute the martyrs and all those who fought in the war.  All that and more in the cricketing trends of the day.
