The cricketing trends on social media revolved around a number of events. Today, India was involved in a T20I game against New Zealand at Sky Stadium in Wellington. It turned out to be another nail-biting contest between the two heavyweights.
In batting, Team India posted a competitive total of 149 runs in stipulated 20 overs. Manish Pandey played a responsible unbeaten knock of 50 runs off 36 balls studded with two boundaries. And, in return BlackCaps also managed to score the same number of runs in their innings. Tim Siefert (57 runs off 39 balls) and Colin Munro (64 runs off 47 balls) managed to click good knocks with their bat in the absence of their regular skipper Kane Williamson.
The game went into the tie-breaking super over in which New Zealand batsmen smacked 14 runs off Jasprit Bumrah. Later on, KL Rahul and Virat Kohli mesmerising batting helped Men in Blue in winning the close game. In the end, Shardul Thakur was awarded Man of the match for registering amazing bowling figures of 3/ 26. After the conclusion of 4th T20I, both the teams were poured with wishes from every nook and corner across the globe for showing displaying such brilliance on the field.
Meanwhile, Shahid Afridi shared a still along with Yuvraj Singh holding the trophy of Expo 2020 tournament ahead of the finals. On the other hand, Ajinkya Rahane looked busy as he gets ready to travel New Zealand for the upcoming Test series.
