The cricketing trends on social media today saw the cricketers from all over the world interact with their followers across platforms. When the Ashes is underway, the talk has to be about the biggest rivalry in Test cricket. On day 2, Australia after slumping behind initially made a brilliant comeback. They first bowled out the English batters out cheap to wrap things up on 403 and then put up a stupendous batting effort to take advantage in the game.
While former England skipper Vaughan agreed, Australian captain Steve Smith was a batting freak just like India’s Virat Kohli. Another ex-skipper Michael Clarke feels a double ton is on the cards for Smith. Shane Warne couldn’t help laugh about the curfew imposed on the England dressing room, while he also wanted to know who other experts thought held the upper hand at this stage in the game.
Amidst the ashes there were others like Shahid Afridi busy with their engagement in the T10 Cricket League that got underway last night in the UAE and promises to be an exciting one. All that and lot more in the trends of the day.

8. Warner praises the effort of the Aussie bowlers as they triggered a late collapse to wrap England cheap
Great work today by our bowlers after England batted well the first hour. Yet again our skipper playing brilliantly and a great contribution by Uzzy. A great test match so far and plenty or cricket to be played still. #AUSvENG

9. Warnie takes a dig at England for the curfew while also asking a really good question in context of the match
Who’s ahead in this 3rd test match ? Australia or England ? Who’s dressing room would you rather come to the ground in tmrw & not because England have a silly curfew ? Hahaha…@KP24 @piersmorgan @SMCricketLive @MichaelVaughan @RMHogg @MervHughes332 @robkey612 @nassercricket
