There was a wide range of topics around which the cricketing trends revolved on Thursday. Firstly, there were talks about the ongoing Test match between England and Ireland. Ed Joyce expressed happiness for being given the opportunity to ring the bell at Lord’s. Mark Waugh, on the other hand, opined that Rory Burns wouldn’t be a part of the final Ashes squad for England. Michael Vaughan shared his thoughts about Jack Leech and feels he is the right replacement for Alastair Cook.
Also, the practice game between Australia and Australia-A came to a close and the former won the match by 5 wickets. David Warner scored 58 runs in the second innings of the game. This was his first four-day game after a gap of 16 months. Steve Waugh was all praise for him for the way he played – full of intent and with precise footwork.
There were also a few trends that revolved around Nuwan Kulasekara. Sri Lanka skipper Dimuth Karunaratne and former captain Mahela Jayawardene shared some sweet words about him. Sachin Tendulkar, meanwhile, caught up with Mark Knopfler for breakfast and shared pictures on social media. Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya got a new tattoo on his hand.

3. Mark Waugh doesn’t think Rory Burns will be playing the Ashes
Harsh call but Rory Burns looked like he was the night watchman. Don’t think he will be playing the Ashes.

12. Steve Waugh applauded David Warner for playing so well in his first four-day game after a gap of 16 months
First 4 day game for 16 months on a challenging pitch against a quality attack. Great to see Dave Warner leading the way with a half century full of intent and precise foot movement. #ashescricket #baggygreen #cricketmedia @davidwarner31

13. I wouldn’t trade this group of men for the world
It’s hard to really dissect an experience like that until you get a bit of distance. Sure some things didn’t fall our way, but we went into the cup saying we were gonna fire some shots and scrap like hell and boy did we do both of those. Another day things might have been different but I wouldn’t trade this group of men for the world. 3.9 years to go til the next one 🎯
