Ind vs NZ: It rains memes as India wins 2nd T20I at Ranchi


With a seven wicket win at Ranchi in the second of three T20 matches against New Zealand, India not only won the day, but the tournament as well. Soon, celebratory posts began flooding social media sites, along with ticklish memes to mark the joyous occasion.

In the hometown of India’s top finisher MS Dhoni, his heir Rishabh Pant ended the match with a pair of six in the manner of the Dhoni, leaving Internet users in an online frenzy. However, the real stars of the day were none other than the skipper Rohit Sharma and the KL Rahul, whose strong partnership paved the way for victory.

Once again, India’s new T20 captain won the draw and opted to line up first at the JSCA International Stadium Complex, limiting the number of guests to just 153, thanks to the brilliant efforts of Harshal Patel and Ravichandran Ashwin, as well as Axar Patel.

As India chased the low tally with great ease, presenting fans in the stadium with some excellent cricket, many couldn’t help but wonder what had happened at the T20 World Cup last month in the United Arab Emirates, producing memes and jokes to express their feelings.

Although Team India have already won the three-game series, they are due to play their final duel at Eden Gardens, Kolkata on Sunday.
