Daily Report: Wednesday, August 18, 2021

The hangover of the Lord’s Test was very much alive on Tuesday. The Indian team goes into the long-ish break before the 3rd Test (starting August 25th) very much in command, while England have a lot of thinking to do.

Until then, the focus shifts to the Caribbean where the 2nd Test between West Indies and Pakistan starts on Friday. The 1st Test was hailed as one of the best Test matches ever and both teams have high expectations to live up to.

Matchday or not, the CricStox market is a busy place and in a busy cricket season, we’re seeing a lot of interesting activity.

 

STOX IN FOCUS

Virat Kohli: The Indian captain’s stock price picked up a bit after the big fall recently. His leadership skills made up for the batting display. But when it comes to Virat Kohli, there is always an expectation to spring back to form sooner than later (Previous close at 131.90 coins/stock).

Jason Holder: One of the best all-rounders in the world, Holder played a big role in West Indies’ famous win in the 1st Test. With the next match just a couple of days away, the former captain will be in focus on the CricStox market (Previous close at 47.90 coins/stock).

Shaheen Afridi: The young pacer was the pick of the Pakistan bowlers in the 1st Test with 8 wickets across both innings. He will need to replicate his performance if the visitors are to level the series (Trading at 36 coins/stock).

Joe Root: The England superstar is currently in a purple patch with the bat. While his team’s loss saw the skipper’s stock price fall in Tuesday’s trading session, Root was one of the top dividend earners in the 2nd Test and will be a stock to watch out for going ahead.

Jayden Seales: The West Indies fast bowler’s IPO is live for subscription at a listing price of 9 coins per stock. Don’t forget to subscribe to the IPO, ending Thursday at 11.59 pm.
