With the emergence of social media, some of the ‘esteemed’ organisations of the world have also been taking it lightly and sharing quirky posts on Twitter. The official handles of various police forces of the country using current issues and films through memes or quirky captions to convey a social message often make headlines. Even in cricket, the topmost bodies have been joining in the fun, trolling teams and other funny moments. Such posts often raise the interactivity with fans and the Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) latest Twitter post, asking ‘Guess Who’ with a Team India member was one such instance. Not just were the netizens confused about the answer, they came up with some hilarious responses too.
The official Twitter handle of BCCI shared a snap of a Team India member in an acrobatic moment from the training session. The player’s head was falling to the ground and his feet were in the air.
Netizens were confused and couldn’t come to a unanimous answer. MS Dhoni, Jasprit Bumrah, KL Rahul, Mohammed Shami, Mayank Agarwal and Ravidra Jadeja were some of the names they took.
However, most people were convinced that it was the youngest member of the squad, Rishabh Pant.
Not just that, there were hilarious responses as well, as netizens even shared some memes, comparing the cricketer to Baba Ramdev, Chahal’s recent viral pose and a still from ‘Om Shanti Om’ about his ‘acting.’ They also poked fun at Ambati Rayudu's recent retirement.
A few even compared him to former South African spinner Paul Adams and even Tiger Shoff, considering their fondness for acrobatic movements.
Some even shared the snap of a trouser to take the name of the wicketkeeper-batsman.
However, the clincher seems to be the fact, as one pointed out by zooming in, the bracelet that Pant wears.
Meanwhile, India is gearing up for their semifinal against New Zealand to be played at Manchester on Tuesday.
