Shastri reacts to a meme after India wins 3rd Test inside 2 days
India’s quest for qualifying for the ICC World Test Championship final at Lord’s depends on how they perform in the fourth and final Test match against England at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. The World Test Championship final is at stake and Team India should make sure that they don’t lose the match.
If they settle for a draw or win a match, they would win the series and will also qualify for the Test final. New Zealand were the first side to qualify for the ICC Test Championship final and they will expect a challenging side like Team India at Lord’s in June 2021.
On the other hand, England lost the track in qualifying for the final after they surrendered at the hands of India in the pink-ball Test. They kick-started the tour with a bang and caused all sets of problems to Team India in the first Test match. Joe Root & Co registered a massive 227-run win over the hosts to take an opening lead in the series.
However, Team India made a great comeback in the second Test by beating the visitors by 317 runs to level the series. Coming to the third Test match, which was a day-night pink-ball affair, England totally lost the plot against India in both innings. The visitors succumbed to 112 and 81 in the first and second innings respectively.
Team India chased down the target of 49 and won the game by 10 wickets to take a 2-1 lead in the series. In the wake of two consecutive victories over England in the ongoing four-match Test series, Indian players gained a lot of confidence.
Ravi Shastri reacts to a hilarious meme on Twitter:
Meanwhile, India’s head coach Ravi Shastri took everyone by surprise by reacting to a hilarious meme on Twitter. Time and again, the fans have seen his pictures and his love for drinks on social media. Once again, the same kind of meme has spread like wildfire after India’s victory in the pink-ball Test in Ahmedabad.
Considering the fact that Gujarat is a dry state, India’s victory in the pink-ball Test inside 2 days made the fans come up with hilarious memes. One of the funny memes shows that India finished the game pretty quickly to avoid staying in the state for a long period.
Journalist Shobha De shared the meme on Twitter where she even tagged India’s head coach Shastri in her tweet. The female journalist’s tweet caught the attention of the fans. She wrote: ‘Smart’. And to everyone’s surprise, Shastri not only reacted to the tweet but did it in a sporting manner as he wrote: “Love the banter! Feels good to bring some smiles in these tough times.”
