The first T20I match of India vs England 5-match series took place on Friday at Narendra Modi stadium in Ahmedabad and visitors defeated Men In Blue with ease by 8 wickets. English team chased down 125 runs target in 15.3 overs to get 1-0 lead in the series.
Indian batting collapsed in the start of their innings and team lost 3 wickets on just 20 runs mark in first 6 overs. Skipper and star batsman Virat Kohli was dismissed for a duck after facing 5 balls and that made millions of fans shock as Kohli is superstar batsman in the lineup and all want him to score runs.
As Kohli returned to pavilion without opening account, social media flourished with memes and trolls. One of the best trolls you could find is from Uttarakhand Police official twitter channel where they took Kohli as example to give a social message to audience and fans to aware of road accidents and wear helmets.
The meaning of this tweet was, “Not enough to wear helmet only, one must drive with full awareness otherwise you might get out on zero just like Kohli.”
England captain Eoin Morgan asked India to bat first winning the toss. India lost early wicket thus didn’t put many runs on the scoreboard. Men in Blue managed to put 124 runs in 20 overs which was below par score on this wicket. Shreyas Iyer made 67 runs which was the only highlight for hosts.
In the run chase, Jason Roy and Jos Buttler added 72 runs partnership in 8 overs that almost sealed the victory for England.
