6th December 2018 – Cricketing Trends On Social Media

Today’s tweets in the social media mainly revolved around birthdays and centuries. Cricketers Jasprit Bumrah, Karun Nair, Shreyas Iyer, RP Singh and Ravindra Jadeja had their birthdays today.

Many opted to send them wishes together. Jadeja and Bumrah are currently in Australia as the member of the Test squad. While Nair and Iyer are in New Zealand playing for India A.

Amidst all these birthday celebrations, New Zealand’s Kane Williamson and India’s Cheteshwar Pujara smashed gutsy centuries. Both these players bailed their respective teams out of extreme situations in overseas conditions.

Williamson was supported by Henry Nicholls in UAE as they took the scores from 60/4 to a position where they virtually batted Pakistan out of the game now.

In Australia, Pujara witnessed his teammates depart one by one courtesy to poor shot selection. However the No. 3 did not give up as he scored 123 from 246 balls. At the end of day’s play, India have posted 250 runs for the loss of nine wickets.

Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant, Ravi Ashwin and Ishant Sharma ably supported Pujara. Even Mohammed Shami, who has remained not out on the crease till now, has proved helpful. It will be interesting how far Shami and Jasprit Bumrah takes India’s scores tomorrow.
