The cricketing trends on social media today saw the cricketers from all over the world interact with their followers across platforms. Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis and Ramiz Raja were thrilled after taking an interview as the second day of the second Test between England and Pakistan was interrupted due to the rain. The visitors are lagging behind in the Test match after they were bundled out for a meagre total of 174 runs courtesy of some accurate bowling by the hosts.

Aakash Chopra had his say on the selection of Dinesh Karthik in the Test team for the one-off historic Test match against Afghanistan. He replaced the injured Wriddhiman Saha as the wicketkeeper as he has been advised the rest of 5-6 weeks by the medical staff of the BCCI. Karthik also seems to be the backup option for England tour as Team India is scheduled to play 5 Test matches in the United Kingdom before which they will play 3 T20 Internationals and the same number of ODIs.

Mohammad Kaif was remembering Hansie Cronje, the late South African cricketer, who passed away in the plane crash 16 years ago and termed the South African as his hero. Even the likes of Dale Steyn and Allan Donald also remembered the great man and the former especially owed him his career by thanking him for showing him the direction in his career. Chris Gayle was enjoying his time away from cricket after playing the charity game at Lord’s against the ICC World XI.
