 One user took to point out that the duo was playing Kabbadi and not cricket. 

Another user tweeted a famous scene from the movie Baahubali with the duo featuring in it. 

Kuldeep Yadav had a bad day with the ball as he was hammered away for 72 runs in 10 overs at an expensive economy rate of 7.20. Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav gave away 160 runs in their combined spell of 20 overs. 

Jonny Bairstow, on the other hand, had a good day with the bat as he scored a brilliant knock of 111 off 109 balls, including ten boundaries and 6 sixes. 

After a 31-run loss to England, India will look to bounce back in their penultimate game against Bangladesh on 2 July at Edgbaston, Birmingham, as they are just one point shy of qualifying for the semi-finals. England will face New Zealand on 3 July at Riverside Ground, Chester-le-Street in their last match of the group stage.
