The cricketing trends in social media today saw the cricketers from all over the world interact with their followers across platforms. It was the start of the Lord’s Test between England and South Africa which stole the show today on Twitter. Saqlain Mushtaq was looking forward to the cricket to be played at the Home of Cricket. Michael Vaughan cited that one of the reasons for a decline in Test cricket is the slow over-rate by teams.
James Taylor got the privilege of ringing the bell today at Lord’s. Alex Tudor applauded the master class from the newly appointed England skipper Joe Root. Dean Jones found out something common in the Fab 4 of International cricket featuring Williamson, Root, Kohli and Smith. Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardena, and Roshan Abheysinghe congratulated the Sri Lankan team for their win against Zimbabwe in the third ODI.
Meanwhile, Lisa Sthalekar thought New Zealand Women’s team had the upper hand against West Indies in the ongoing ICC Women’s World Cup. Virender Sehwag and Rohit Sharma wished Bollywood sensation Ranveer Singh on his birthday. Kevin O’ Brien posted a groupfie with the other members of the Ireland Cricket Team. Mitchell McCleneghan wanted his followers to caption one with him in the batting attire. That said, let us look at the cricketing trends in social media today.
