Finally, the much-anticipated England and India Test series got started on Friday in Chennai. The visitors won a crucial toss and ended up batting first and made the lives of the Indian bowlers tough. As the Indian fielders and bowlers were having a tough day out in the sun, the fans on social media were having a day for themselves by making memes on two of the famous cricketers. 

There was not enough to work with for the players of the Indian team as they toiled away under the sun with England skipper Joe Root batting beautifully. He also had a good partnership with Dominic Sibley who held his ground until the very last over of the day one’s play. As Root got a hundred on day one and carried on to score 150 on day two, Sibley got out for 87. 

At the time of writing this article, England was batting on 393 for 4 after lunch on day two. Ben Stokes got dismissed for 82 runs with Root on 170 not out. Away from all this, it was an image of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli which caught the attention of the social media fans. It was a photo that wasn’t funny at the beginning but people soon started editing it with funny captions. 

Netizens make memes on Rohit and Virat

The incident took place on day one when Joe Root drove one ball from Shahbaz Nadeem. As the ball was going to the boundary, the two Indian players were checking whether the ball had actually reached the boundary. At this very point, the camera had zoomed into them and netizens took this moment and started making memes out of it.

Here are some of the memes: 

There were antics from behind the stumps as well. Wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant was at it once again. Throughout the day, the Delhi player kept motivating the bowlers who were having a tough with the ball in the heat of Chennai. He kept making funny comments. 

At one point, while Washington Sundar was bowling, he cheekily said, “mera naam hai Washington, mujhe jaana hai DC.” This translates to “My name is Washington, I want to go to DC.” For some of you who don’t know, DC is also the abbreviation of Delhi Capitals, the IPL team for whom Pant plays.
