The Buzz: Don't forget to celebrate Shahid Afridi Day
All the bantz, the jousts, and little bit of eavesdropping from the social media playground and beyond
All the world's cricketers walked into a bar. The LOLs, the chatter, and the occasional mini-brawls, they were endless. And the news cycle was never the same again! Welcome to ESPNcricinfo's Social Buzz, your go-to destination for all the bantz, the jousts, and little bit of eavesdropping from the social media playground and beyond.
Bust out the party hats and call for some cake, it's Shahid Afridi's name day somewhere in the world. In 2014, the mayor of Port Arthur, Texas, declared that February 5 would officially be known as Shahid Afridi Day, and just in case anyone had forgotten to mark this on their calendar, Afridi has a timely reminder.

David Warner's daughter is tomorrow's cricket terror
Remember when David Warner's discovered a little Virat Kohli
in his backyard? Well the adorable Ivy Mae just upped the cuteness stakes with her latest snit. While doing a spot of batting - or Kohli-ing - at the park, the tot missed a delivery that would have found the stumps. In a bit of drama worthy of a top-flight cricketer, Ivy shouted "Nice spinning" before flinging her bat down in anger. We can't wait to see her in the Australian team. She's going to be a regular terror. World domination is guaranteed.
