The cricketing trends on social media revolved around a number of events. Most of the talks were regarding India’s 227-run loss to England in the first Test at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, also known as Chepauk. In the fourth innings, the home team was chasing 420 runs, but due to loss of wickets on a consistent basis, Virat Kohli and Co could never recover and in the end, they gave up the ghost.
Kohli scored 72 runs off 104 balls with nine fours, but his efforts went in vain. Shubman Gill didn’t flatter to deceive either as he notched 50 runs off 83 balls before being castled by James Anderson. The next highest score in India’s second innings was of Cheteshwar Pujara, who scored 15. Anderson picked up two late wickets in the first innings, but in the second, he was at his very best, without a shred of a doubt.
He picked up three wickets, conceding only 17 runs in the 11 overs he bowled. James Vince expressed gratitude to the Sydney Sixers, who won the 2020-21 edition of the Big Bash League.

2. Mohammad Kaif poses a question after India’s hefty defeat at the Chepauk
Back to back games at same venue is a problem for team management. Same pitch, same conditions, same squad … What excuse you give to drop a player after just one game? #KuldeeporNadeem

7. Kevin Pietersen looking for the nature of the pitch in the second Test in Chennai
Never a good idea having a win toss and almost certainly win game if you bat well first innings of the game.
Very interested to see what kind of track is prepared next Test!

9. Brad Hogg praises England for making proper use of the conditions in Chennai
England had the better of the conditions and didnt give that advantage up from day one. Foundation for a great series. India will come back hard. Loving test cricket, well played both teams. #INDvENG #cricket

10. Aakash Chopra in awe of England’s performance in Chennai
Emphatic win by England in the opening Test. Opens up the race to the WTC final even further. Two senior pros stood up for them. Root with the bat. Absolutely incredible. And Anderson with skill and the will. When was the last time England won three consecutive Tests in Asia?
