If this series is going to be remembered for something other than the cricket played, it’s going to be the memes that have been created throughout. There have been so many incidents that the Twitterati has never managed to run out of jokes.
It all began from the famous Matt Renshaw moment where he retired in the middle to go for a loo break. The internet broke with hilarious takes on his sudden return to the pavilion. Later, Renshaw went on to say at the press conference that even the Indian players sledged him on the same topic.
What followed was Ishant Sharma’s face expression meme. If you thought Ishant Sharma is going to be remembered only for his Lords spell or the one to Ponting in his early days, you’re wrong. His face became so famous that Star Sports eventually ran a ‘Ishant face’ competition among all the commentators and expert panel. Social media had found the ultimate troll.
Then we had the DRS controversy as Steve Smith seek dressing room advice on referring one of the umpiring decisions. This created a huge stir but twitter just couldn’t stop trolling him for the same, comparing each of Steve Smith’s action as to referring from the dressing room. We couldn’t help but share a good laugh.
There was also a trend on Pat Cummins where people drew some really funny comparisons of the duration between Pat Cummins’ wickets. He played a test match after a gap of 6 years.
On Day 4 of the third Test, there was an incident where Umpire Chris Gaffaney almost pointed his finger to a half shout for caught behind, but suddenly changed his mind and started scratching his head. It led to an outburst of laughter in the commentary box as well as in the field.
What about Twitter? Well, they just found yet another meme to take a go at. Some hilarious captions for the umpire clip started surfacing and we’re sure you’re gonna enjoy reading this one. Here are some of the hilarious reactions to the umpire blunder.
