This loss of Indian team did not only showed the poor bowling side but also questions the poor selection of not in-form-player by the team management. Rohit, who was mostly anger during the second innings, pinned the blame on the ineffective and inconsistent Indian bowling side during the post-match presentation.
But one side where the Indian side was losing, the Indian player like current captain Rohit Sharma and former skipper Virat Kohli was also busy giving meme materials. Their aggression, expressions and tactics were being watch keenly during the match and later a meme fest was being held on Twitter.
Checkout some of the memes here:
By the end of the 12th over, when the umpire signaled not out for Glenn Maxwell, Dinesh Karthik, who was wicket keeping in that over didn’t ask for a Decision Review System (DRS). And Team India skipper Rohit Sharma jokingly chocked Dinesh Karthik for his no-appeal for DRS and this gesture became an instant hit among the fans on social media.
Later when even Virat Kohli was seen giving a side eye to Bhuvneshwar Kumar for giving out 22 runs in an over was noticed by the tweeple.
While talking about the loss of Indian team in the first T20 match against Australia, Rohit Sharma said that he thinks that the Men in Blue didn’t bowl well. As 200 is a good score to defend, and the bowlers didn’t take chances in the field. However, Rohit believes that it was a great effort from the Indian batters, but the bowlers were not quite there.
