There wasn’t much top-drawer cricket action on Friday (August 18) except for a Test match being played between England and Windies, but the players had many other reasons to make their presence felt on the social-networking sites.

To set the ball rolling, exactly nine years after making his international debut, Virat Kohli was back in Dambulla, the place where it all started.

Far away, Alastair Cook and Joe Root marked England’s first foray into day-night Test cricket with centuries and helped their side dominate Windies.

Meanwhile, Adam Lyth, the Yorkshire batsman, smacked a record-breaking 161 off just 73 balls during their NatWest Twenty20 Blast game against Northamptonshire.

Back home now. Suresh Raina had spoken to Wisden India about his desire of playing the 2019 World Cup, and it seemed like the left-hander was sweating it out in Kanpur to make his dream come true.

‘Better late than never’ – Mohammed Shami finally got some time to celebrate India’s 3-0 Test series victory over Sri Lanka.

Dhawal Kulkarni encountered Ajinkya Rahane Jr.

Looks like frequent trips to India have made Michael Clarke a pani poori maker.

Sticking to India, it seemed like JP Duminy too was enjoying his time in ‘this’ beautiful country.

David Warner was on his way to Dhaka, where he too would encounter many such situations.
