The cricketing trends on social media today revolved around the much-awaited Friendship Day and the Test match between India and England. Many praised Sam Curran for his all-round performance in the opening Test against India. He took five wickets in the match and then scored an impressive 63 in the second which eventually turned the game in England’s favour. He thanked everyone for the wishes and felt it was unbelievable to be involved in such a great match.

The world is celebrating Friendship Day and so are the cricketers. They were busy recalling the memorable moments with their friends while some of them called their wives as their best friends. Venkatesh Prasad is celebrating his 49th birthday today and he received wishes from none other than the master blaster Sachin Tendulkar. He felt that the fast bowler was one of the finest exponents of the slower balls.


James Taylor announced the England squad for the second Test at Lord’s. They made a couple of changes to the winning team. Ben Stokes will miss the Test due to a court trial while Dawid Malan was dropped for Ollie Pope who was awarded a national call-up for consistent performances in County cricket.
