Twitter went abuzz recently when someone captured a picture of a commoner who resembled Ravi Shastri. Travelling in a local train, this Twitter user posted an image of a passenger who seemed like a doppelganger of the Indian cricket coach. In no time, the picture went viral and the whole social media was filled with memes and trolls surrounding the picture.
Ravi Shastri has always managed to be in the middle of controversies. He was heavily criticised after the England tour where the visitors lost 4-1. While the matches were really close and the results could’ve gone anywhere, the scoreline didn’t speak so. Recently, Ganguly also criticised the manner in which he was brought to the helm in his letter to the BCCI.
However here, it was for a totally different reason that Shastri was at the centre of the butt of jokes. The Indian coach has also been known to be an excessive drinker since his playing days. Hence, people didn’t take much time using the reference. Others continued to add some really hilarious captions as one by one, everyone joined the chorus.
Shastri becomes a butt of jokes
For some reason or the other, Shastri has always been a social media favourite for memes. Even during his days as a commentator, he was trolled for his ever repetitive ‘tracer bullet’ and ‘going down the wire’ comments. No wonder then too, he became a famous meme. Sometime ago, even Virat Kohli‘s social message along with his wife was taken as a joke on Twitter. He went on to tweet further that everything for people nowadays has become meme content.
While the Indian captain or the coach may disapprove of such vile comments, Twitter sure had a lot of fun. No doubt some of the tweets were damn funny and people had a good laugh over it.
Here are some of the funniest memes on Ravi Shastri’s doppelganger:-

The tall stature of a man can only be judged by the fact how grounded he is.
Here is Ravi Shastri Ji, travelling in Mumbai local train.
Still you doubt his character.
