Hitman Sharma Becomes Meme Material As Picture Of Teammates Lifting Him After Taking A Catch Gets Viral

It was Hitman’s show in the first test match in Vizag as he scored centuries in both innings to help India register an amazing victory by 203 runs. However, the second match witnessed total dominance from the hosts. But what came as a lot of satisfaction to captain Kohli and the team that the team won the match.


Mayank Agarwal and Cheteshwar Pujara laid an ideal foundation for captain Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja who turned the tables by scoring 254 and 91 respectively and took away the match.

Both Jadeja and Kohli gave a tough time to the South African bowlers before eventually declaring the innings at 5-601.

Talking about the second innings, it was a full show again. Indian bowler Umesh Yadav started the rut by trapping Markram in front with Mohammed Shami and Ishant Sharma giving Proteas’ batsmen a run for their money.

Mohammad Shami’s brave delivery to Senuran Muthusamy was another instance of how our Indian pacers are not afraid of bouncing out the opposition. However, it was Rohit Sharma’s catch and eventual fall that took social media by storm.

For a change, Hitman Sharma was not in the news for the runs that he scored but because of falling and not just once but twice. First, a pitch invader rushed to the ground on the third day in a bid to kiss his favorite and then his seemingly hilarious fall while taking Senuran Muthusamy’s catch. The close-in fielders rushed to get hold of Rohit.

The social media was soon flooded with hilarious memes and jokes on the viral picture of the same moment from the match.

Here, check out some of the reactions from twitterati on the viral picture:
