India’s Chadrayaan-2 Lander lost contact with the ground early on Saturday. For scientists and astronauts all around the world, this news came as a bitter truth to start the day off. The cricketing trends revolved around this topic and the likes of Virat Kohli, VVS Laxman, Ravichandran Ashwin and Rahul Sharma congratulated ISRO for getting so close. They were amongst many other cricketers who had words of encouragement for all the scientists and wished them luck for the future.
On the other hand, the ongoing Ashes Test between England and Australia has reached an interesting juncture. Bishan Singh Bedi believes that this game is developing into a good spectacle. Kevin Pietersen encouraged the Brits in his tweet. Some of the other trends revolved around Abdul Qadir. Brian Lara and Allan Donald hoped that the legend rested in peace.

7. Aakash Chopra likes Sanju Samson and feels he should be in the contention for white-ball cricket. But, he has also got a few reservations about Sanju’s List-A performances
I like Sanju Samson. I really do. And perhaps, he should be kept in mind for white ball cricket going forward. But what explains his List-A average of 28 without a single century in 80 games? Can/should selectors overlook that? Would that be fair on others?
