The cricketing trends on social media revolved around a number of events. Mumbai cricketer Iqbal Abdullah posted a motivational quote uploading a picture where he was seen sitting inside a car. Kieron Pollard posted a heartfelt picture with his wife and his newborn baby. Pollard recently made his comeback into the Windies T20I team for the series versus India, which starts on August 3.

Netherlands batsman Steven Myburgh can’t wait to don the national jersey in the T20I series against the United Arab Emirates (UAE) that starts on August 3. Pakistan cricketer Azhar Ali posted a video where he can be seen working hard in the gymnasium. Ali has recently been contemplated to take up the Test captaincy for the Pakistan cricket team as Sarfaraz Ahmed is set to be relieved offthe role.

The second day of the first Test between England and Australia at the Edgbaston in Birmingham took place and the day was full of excitement.
