The cricketing trends on social media today saw the cricketers from all over the world interact with their followers across platforms. Whilst many prominent figures took time to wish the birthday boys and dashing batsmen Aaron Finch and Yusuf Pathan, the Women’s Ashes and the India-Sri Lanka encounter did manage to hog a lot of limelight.
The Australian women’s side managed to defeat their archrivals England thanks to a sensational inning from opener Beth Mooney. She compiled a brilliant 86 off 56 balls, which helped the Aussies chase down England’s target of 133 runs. With this, they successfully retained the Ashes and the entire Australian cricketing fraternity expressed their elation on Twitter.
Windies veteran Darren Sammy was sheerly impressed with the passion shown by the Bangladeshi fans. He posted a picture of the Rajshahi Kings’ fans carrying a huge club flag around the ground. Sammy is also the interim captain of their franchise. They pulled off an amazing win on Friday as they took down Sylhet Sixers, which gives a much-needed ignition to their campaign, which was off to quite a delirious start.
Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar was all excited about his club Kerala Blasters’ opening game of the ISL 2017/18 against defending champions Atletico de Kolkata. Touted as one of the biggest rivalries in Indian football, this is a clash which draws a lot of attention and there’s no better way to kick-off this grand event.
There was a lot happening in the commentary box of the India – Sri Lank fixture. Although not much cricketing action was at the store, the commentary panel gave a fair share of entertainment to their fans. Laxman clicked a picture of Russel Arnold dozing and that took the social media by a storm. Here is some other major stuff which cranked up the digital world.
