The cricketing trends on social media revolved around a number of events. The second day of the second Test between India and England took place at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. On the second day, the pitch turned out to be a delight for the spinners. India got all-out for 329 runs in their first innings. Rishabh Pant went on to stay not out on 58. He also got support from Ajinkya Rahane, who scored in the 60s.
Thereafter, India shot the Three Lions out for 134 in their first innings. Joe Root, who scored a double ton in the opening Test, couldn’t cross single digits. He perished to Axar Patel when he went for a sweep shot. Only Ben Foakes showed some amount of grit, as he scored 42 runs and even went on to stay unbeaten. For India, Ravi Ashwin was the standout performer without a doubt.
He picked up five wickets and was showered with praises from every nook and corner of the nation. In the meantime, the 2021 edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) is set to get underway in a few days and players are starting to reach Karachi for the tournament.

3. Mark Waugh not happy with the pitch at the Chepauk
I’m all for a good contest between bat and ball in test match cricket but this pitch in Chennai is unacceptable at test match level. You can’t have the ball going through the top of the surface on day 1 from the main part of the pitch. Ie not from the footmarks.

6. RP Singh praises Ravi Ashwin for showing dominance against left-handers
#Ashwin is in great company when he entered a 'special' 200 club! Congratulations @ashwinravi99 for getting most left handers in Test. And, another 5 wicket haul at home. But this one in Chennai is always more special, I guess! #INDvENG pic.twitter.com/LtzLHQnF76

13. Kevin Pietersen lauds India for preparing a rank turning in Chennai
Such a brave wicket to prepare for a Test match IN India when India are down in the series.
If India had lost the toss, they’d have gone down 2-0.
Very very brave!
Well tossed, @imVkohli 🤣
