The cricketing trends on Wednesday revolved around former Pakistan skipper Misbah Ul Haq. He was appointed as the head coach as well as the chief selector of the national team. Thus, he was flooded with wishes which included those from Shoaib Akhtar and Shahid Afridi as well. The fast bowler also tried to find the funny side of things and wrote that he was surprised that Misbah wasn’t appointed as the chairman of PCB. Misbah Ul Haq himself took it to Twitter to thank everyone for the wishes and support for the challenging journey ahead.

Some of the other trends also revolved around the ongoing Ashes Test. Mark Waugh didn’t seem to be impressed with Joe Root’s idea of not bowling Jofra Archer to Steve Smith early on. On the other hand, Brad Hogg opined that the English skipper didn’t have enough confidence in Craig Overton. After David Warner became Stuart Broad’s bunny once again, Dean Jones came up with a piece of advice for the left-hander.
