The cricketing trends on social media today saw the cricketers from all over the world interact with their followers across platforms. It was the first Day-Night Test for Sri Lanka as they took on Pakistan at Dubai which was the centre of attraction across the feeds of prominent cricketers across social media. Also, it was the first day of the second Test match between South Africa and Bangladesh which grabbed few eyeballs.

Russel Arnold seemed very impressed with the performance of Dimuth Karunaratne who scored a ‘Pink Century’. Mahela Jayawardena did not want to create a great amount of fuss regarding debutant Sadeera Samarawickrama and jinx the batsman. Michael Vaughan backed the name of Liam Plunkett after Ben Stokes was provisionally excluded from the Ashes squad. Rohit Sharma and Murali Vijay wished India’s U19 FIFA World Cup team all the very best for the ongoing tournament.
