The cricketing trends on social media today saw the cricketers from all over the world interact with their followers across platforms. Topics around cricket on social media today were interesting considering the day was full of action, from criticism around England in the Ashes to the Marsh brothers’ performance, from Virender Sehwag motivating Indian players to bounce back to Ed Cowan thinking that Afghanistan will make it to the T20 World Cup semis next time, the day was as exciting as it gets.
Yesterday it was Mohammad Nabi from Afghanistan, today it was Rashid Khan, lighting up the BBL with their skills and Kevin Pietersen praise the leggie for his Man of the Match performance for the Adelaide Strikers after his 2 for 21 and a 16-run cameo in the last over. Brendon McCullum had some fun with commentators Adam Gilchrist and Mark Waugh.
David Warner applauded his teammates Shaun Marsh and Mitchell Marsh for their respective tons. Michael Vaughan expressed his problems with how predictable the Ashes series has become and believes Australia had a better chance of winning at the UK, in comparison to how bad England’s chances of winning in Australia became.
Glen McGrath urged spectators to come and watch the Aussies wrap up the series 4-0 at the SCG. KP also declared his goodbyes from BBL yesterday, making it a talking point on social media. Alex Tudor tried to make sense of James Vince’s future. Nathan Bracken shared the news of the demise of his pet dog. Ross Taylor visited some ‘future BlackCaps’ at a primary school tournament’s opening ceremony. Suresh Raina announced their upcoming radio show with wife Priyanka about a cause related to the girl child.

6. Vaughan’s disappointment
Ashes series are becoming too predictable … England are a long way from winning in these conditions IMO but Australia are a lot closer to winning in the UK … England cannot just relax and believe because it’s at home with the Duke ball in 2019 they will win .. #Ashes
