Even after a stellar century by Shikhar Dhawan and a whopping 321 total in the Champions Trophy match against Sri Lanka last week, India lost the second match in the league stage of the tournament with the victory by 3 wickets going to Sri Lanka. Even if the result didn’t go our way, we can really use some laughter to curb the disappointment of the match. Here are some hilarious tweets:
When the partnership of Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan was hard to break and India was going strong.
- Before the match started:
- Sri Lankan names:
Wordplay in the cruelest way, Pradeep Nuwan is the player’s name for the people who didn’t get it.
- Not a Captain’s Knock but a Captain’s Knockout:
They do like ducks. They had ducks together as well!! Wait… Isn’t ABD a vegetarian? Oh they meant out on 0 runs! Make it clear people!!
- Gautam Gambhir’s Dream of playing in national colors slipping away:
Don’t worry Gambhir, you still have the IPL! Play well in KKR and you might still get a chance soon.

Virat Kohli is allowing Gunathilaka to play so well is because of dANUSHKA as the name of Gunathilaka is Danushka Gunathilaka and Virat loves Anushka!!!
- The Four Stages of Run Out:
First you try your best to reach the crease in time. Then you realize that you didn’t make it. Then you feel bad that you let your country down. Then you accept that it happened and move on!

We do hope India would bounce back and stay in the tournament as they are the defending champions!
