Sunday and rains is a combination that would make one lazy and even want to take a pleasant nap or crave for particular refreshments. But not if you’re a cricketer and your match is on. Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed was caught yawning on camera after play resumed after rain had stopped play in the 47th over of the Indian innings. Netizens had a field day over the visual, asking if he had Chicken Biriyani during the break, while those on the other side had demanded that he be sacked and called it a ‘shame.’
As soon as the visual surfaced on social media, netizens quipped that the yawning reaction was like fans getting bored watching their bowling and fielding. They also joked that such was the expression in a ‘high pressure game’ or when coach would say they can win it.
Most of them, however, wondered if he had Chicken Biryani during the game that made him feel heavy. Some even photoshoppped him into the fan who's expression had gone viral after the team's loss against Australia.
Here are the best tweets:
Pakistan were tottering at 166/6 in 35 overs when the rain stopped play once again as they chased the target of 337. Rohit Sharma's 140, Virat Kohli's 77 and KL Rahul's 57 had helped India set up a good total.
