Cricketing Trends on Social Media today
Here is how cricketers spent their day on Twitter and Instagram.

The cricketing trends on social media revolved around a number of incidents. On this very day way back in 2013, India became the winners of the Champions Trophy under the leadership of MS Dhoni, beating hosts England in the final by five runs at the Edgbaston in Birmingham. The memories of the stupendous victories is still pretty much afresh in the minds of the players. Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan relived those moments.
The 2019 World Cup is currently taking place and on June 23, Pakistan and South Africa locked horns at the iconic Lord’s Cricket Ground in London, which hosted its first match of the mega event. Pakistan racked up a massive score of 308 on the board courtesy of Babar Azam and Haris Sohail, who scored 69 and 89 respectively. Russel Arnold was awe-struck with Sohail’s knock and he lauded the southpaw for the stellar show.
Spinner Imran Tahir got rid of both Fakhar Zaman and Imam-ul-Haq in quick succession. He drew praises from Australian leg-spinner Fawad Ahmed. Both the Pakistani openers threatened, having scored 44 each and their opening stand fetched 81 in 14.5 overs. Former Englishman Michael Vaughan reckoned that the ‘Other Pakistan’ had arrived at the Lord’s. Yesterday, India beat Afghanistan by 11 runs in Southampton.
Jaydev Unadkat was over the moon with the triumph. Sri Lanka’s Niroshan Dickwella turned 26 today. The likes of Dimuth Karunaratne and Angelo Mathews, both of whom are busy playing the World Cup, wished the swashbuckling wicketkeeper-batsman. Meanwhile, Misbah-ul-Haq had some words of motivation for the Pakistan team.
1. Afridi impressed by Pakistan’s performance
Excellent performance Pakistan! The bowlers backed up Haris Sohail’s brilliant batting effort. Hope the momentum will be sustained in the games ahead. BUT the fielding must improve so many dropped catches, can’t be excused at all! #WeHaveWeWill

11. Sanjay Manjrekar analyses Carlos Brathwaite’s performance
Brathwaite scored a century but also conceded almost 10 runs an over in his 6 overs. 4 runs per over more than the other two most expensive bowlers in his side. So what do make of Brathwaite’s contribution as player? Honest question. Seeking answers.
Will retweet your views.
