Cricketing trends in Twitter today saw tweets coming in from all around the globe. Most of the talks and the social media feeds of the day encircled around the international cricket action and the build-up to the PSL finals. India were seen struggling against Australia in the Bengaluru Test as well. The day was not a good one for the other hosts of another series too. New Zealand were beaten in their own backyard by South Africa. Wasim Akram looked excited at the prospect of commentating in the PSL finals at Lahore.

Meanwhile the English pacer Stuart Broad could not stop admiring the beauty of the food based article that he read on the day. Former Aussie cricketers were pleased to see Australia dominate the proceedings on day 1 of the Bengaluru Test. Adam Gilchrist called it to be a great day for the team, while Jason Gillespie remarked the inability of the Indian batsmen to judge the lines of Aussie spinners. Australian skipper Steve Smith too, was very pleased with the way Nathan Lyon bowled on the day. He is now keen on dominating the proceedings on day 2.

Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh did not shy away from praising Lyon either. He now hopes that the Indian spinners create the same magic with the ball that Lyon did. Former English batsman Mark Butcher was mesmerised at the way Lyon scalped 8/50 in the innings. Bowling against all odds, the offie spun magic on the day. Robin Peterson and Faf du Plessis were delighted to see South Africa register a 3-2 win over New Zealand in the ODI series. Du Plessis seems to be keeping a count of the number of series the Proteas are bagging on a winning spree.

The PSL final is all set to be played at Lahore tomorrow. No wonder why Mohammad Hafeez and Saeed Ajmal are excited about it. Hafeez thanked the crowds and fans at the UAE for their support. Meanwhile, Kumar Sangakkara, the skipper of the ousted side Karachi Kings, thanked the fans for their support.
