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. Pollard couldn’t make the cut for the recently concluded World Cup. Vijay Shankar reckons training the mind to see good things is important.
Cricketer turned commentator Russel Arnold was delighted after being a part of the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL). 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. Rory Burns scored a magnificent century in the third session. Michael Vaughan reckons that the game will go right down to the wire. Meanwhile, Brett Lee doesn’t quite like the numbered jersey.
Damian Martyn saw a photo where the Brits were celebrating and mocked them for their celebration. Mark Waugh felt Burns was digging a big hole for the Aussies with his grit and determination. Cameron White also cheered his heart out for the Australian team.

7. A worried Mark Waugh
It’s a batsmen’s game these days. That delivery from Pattinson has hit the off peg fairly hard. Aussies doing well as Burns is digging a big hole.

13. Lee doesn’t like numbered Test jerseys
For what it’s worth I’m strongly against the players numbers & names appearing on the back of test cricket shirts!
I think it looks ridiculous. @ICC I love the changes you’ve made to cricket in general, but on this occasion you’ve got it wrong. #tradition #cleanskin #nonames

14. Luke Wright loved Kevin Pietersen’s documentary
Loved the @KP24 documentary, thought @nassercricket did a great job. I got to see KP in different environments first with England, then with the @StarsBBL. The way @SPFleming7 man managed KP was amazing to see & taught me a lot, I got to see him happy and enjoying his cricket.
