The cricketing trends on social media today saw the cricketers from all over the world interact with their followers across platforms. Australia regained the Ashes in an emphatic fashion as they beat England by an innings and 41 runs at the WACA in Perth. Steve Smith’s double ton and Josh Hazlewood’s five-for, coupled with some spectacular teamwork helped the hosts defeat Joe Root’s side. And the internet just can’t get over the thumping win. From the current cricketers to former greats, everyone tweeted congratulatory messages to the new Ashes winners.
On the other side, Jhonty Rhodes is in awe of India all over again while former Indian cricketer Murali Kartik heaped praises on his ex-Middlesex mate Dawid Malan, who impressed one and all with his awesome stroke-play. Aakash Chopra was seen in some serious action, whereas Suresh Raina was at peace with his wife in Bangalore. Former England skipper Michael Vaughan isn’t done with his Ashes review yet while Mitchell Johnson admires the beauty.
Don’t miss out Rohit Sharma’s touching tweet at the conclusion of the ODIs against Sri Lanka and Morne Morkel’s latest appearance in a sports magazine. We bring it all to you in our Cricketing trends on social media today:

15. Shahid Afridi had a great time playing
The T10 tournament was a great experience, I feel that bowlers would further need to work on their skills to compete in T10…Too many 6s? Special congratulations to @Salman_ARY and Shajiul Mulk on successful event, well played Kerala, deserving champions!

London on Thursday to my babies. Roll on!

17. Whatta compliment!
Ricky Ponting almost as good on commentary as he was a player. Which is a very good effort. Really good listen
— Ashley Giles (@Gilo) December 18, 2017
18. Truth has been spoken
Well played Australia. The better team in all departments simple as that. #ashes

20. Warne is ecstatic!
— Shane Warne (@ShaneWarne) December 18, 2017
21. Good point
Congrats Australia!! That’s why we are “obsessed” with pace – 3 blokes consistently bowling 145kph is the difference between the teams. When the ball isn’t swinging or seaming, the extra pace can still get good players out!!

22. Taylor congratulates the winners
Well played Australia. Comfortably the better side. They were far more clinical in so many ways and won those key moments in every game. #Ashes
