Virender Sehwag Shared A Hilarious Meme Featuring Rohit Sharma And Rishabh Pant: Despite India being shoehorned into a cramped corner in the first Test match with Joe Root and Ben Stokes laying waste to Indian bowling on the second day, there was no dearth of comic moments at the end of the day.
With moments like Rishabh Pant running in the wrong direction to take a catch, the moments spanned to Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli lurking in the same alignment that left the entire internet in splits.
There was another moment of sheer laughter that was spotted by Virender Sehwag and his way of putting it across Instagram was equally hilarious.
As Jofra Archer was dismissed and Jack Leach walked out into the middle, Rohit Sharma leaned on to Rishabh Pant and looked at him as if Leach has been earmarked with the onus of saving the world.
With every passing ball, India stuttered further towards their own doom and the Indian cricketers picked out every single moment to laugh as hard as they could.
In an Instagram post, former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag quoted, “Watching Leach as if galli se Baraat nikal rahi hai.” Ideally, when translated into English, it would turn up as if that Rohit and Pant were looking at the messiah of a dystopian world, walking out in the middle with the elixir to save the planet.
Jack Leach hung around in the middle alongside a persistent Dom Bess who has managed to amass 28 runs from 84 deliveries until now. Despite being peppered with short balls at the end, Leach’s dogged existence out there helped England to pile up a significant total against India and there is still a bit of batting left on the third day to happen unless Root decides otherwise.
