After India lost to Pakistan in the ICC Champions Trophy final on Sunday, Indian cricket fans have been coping with the burn by diverting their attention to memes. Most were confident that Pakistan would live up to their reputation of being a team of chokers. But that was not to be.
Thankfully for them, the Indian hockey team thrashed Pakistan in the Hero Hockey World League semi-final in London with a score of 7-1. So, a lot of people became hockey fans overnight.
Ravindra Jadeja's mix-up resulted in the run-out of Hardik Pandya who was in great form and he came under fire on social media.
Vadivelu: This country doesn't appreciate goodness. Everyone appreciated me for the run-out in the last match. But in this match, I did one run-out everyone is blaming me for it.
And since this was an India-Pakistan match, what should the good nationalist say by way of explanation?
Hello, Isn't this Ambaadimukku Shakha? I am a saghavu, from Abudhabi.
Namaste, this is the shakha. Do you want to join us?
No, not that. do you have any official explanation to give for India losing the match? I want to use it in an argument with a Pakistani who works with me.
BJP state president Kummanam, who was trolled when Metro Man E Sreedharan's name was excluded by the PMO for the inauguration of the Kochi Metro, also found himself in memes.
While Kummanam went to intervene in hockey, India lost in cricket.
Fearing controversy, Kummanam withdrew at the last minute. India lost.
