There might have been various topics around which the cricketing trends revolved on Tuesday. But two retirements grabbed all the attention and most of the talks in the cricketing fraternity revolved around these. South African pacer Dale Steyn announced his retirement from Test cricket while Brendon McCullum bid adieu to the game completely. Ravichandran Ashwin, Shikhar Dhawan and Martin Guptill congratulated the former Kiwi skipper on a wonderful career.
The likes of Wayne Parnell, Tabraiz Shamsi and Jasprit Bumrah also took it to social media to wish good luck to Dale Steyn for his future. The Indian pacer even termed Steyn as the focal point for fast bowlers everywhere. Apart from these, some of the trends revolved around the first Ashes Test between England and Australia. David Warner and Usman Khawaja shared their happiness about this victory. On the other hand, Stuart Broad seemed gutted and frustrated after this loss despite England dominating on the first two days. He wrote that he is looking forward to the Lord’s game.
