Shreyas Iyer, who donned all whites for the primary time on Thursday within the first Test towards New Zealand in Kanpur, impressed followers and critics alike together with his masterful, unbeaten 75 that helped the hosts battle again after Kyle Jamieson scalped three Indian wickets. After the opener, Shubman Gill smashed one other half-century, Iyer together with Ravindra Jadeja (50*) anchored the innings taking India from a spot of concern- 145 for 4 – to 258 for Four on the finish of the day’s play. Apart from the strong cricket that followers received to witness on the sphere, many complained of the “hazy” Green Park that was covered in smog as the game commenced early morning in Kanpur. However, the highlight of the day for the fans (read: memers on the Internet) came when a man seated in the stands was spotted “chewing” gutkha as he spoke on the cellphone.
Twitter customers have been fast to select up on the stereotype, one thing that’s widespread in Bollywood- each different individual (or character in Hindi films) in UP- has a behavior of chewing tobacco or paan.
“Just when Kanpur guthka jokes have been about to section out,” a Twitter consumer exclaimed.
Earlier Gill notched his fourth half-century as India reached 82-1 at lunch. Funnily, on a observe that saved low and gradual and didn’t supply a lot flip, New Zealand spinners Ajaz Patel (0/56 in 15 overs) and Will Somerville (0/28 in 13 overs) have been disappointing. But Rahane can be gutted as he hit six beautiful boundaries earlier than dragging one in as he anticipated the ball to bounce extra contemplating Jamieson’s top.
