After a batting collapse on Day 1, India posted a respectable score on the board, thanks to centuries from Ravichandran Ashwin and Wriddhiman Saha. Twitterati saluted the duo for the great performance, but Ravindra Jadeja was the victim of all the jokes on the day. Here are the best ones.
No tweets on Rohit? We have SIR Jadeja!

SIR for a reason!
no Ishant with new ball. Signs of things to come, hopefully.— Nikhil (@CricCrazyNIKS) August 10, 2016
It took a long, long time...
*We had tweets on Ashwin ton ready but now we won't even know when he gets there* #WIvIND— Nikhil (@CricCrazyNIKS) August 10, 2016
VVS Ashwin becomes Virender Ashwin - gets to his hundred with a six. A hardworking 265 ball Test Hundred for Ashwin.— Arjun Ashok (@arj_90) August 10, 2016
Poor Shami has been waiting for the last half hour to capture the moment, just like how we've been waiting to tweet. 99 & 93 - got to wait.— Arjun Ashok (@arj_90) August 10, 2016
How things have changed in the last 10 years!
So this was the reason!
Ashwin is not taking the single to get to his hundred only because Shami is still working out how to use the camera... :)— cricketingview (@cricketingview) August 10, 2016
Is this, the INTENT missing?

If Ashwin keeps pulling such stuff with the bat in ODIs too,— Hitman Cricket (@HitmanCricket) August 10, 2016
We might well have Dhoni say 'Nice batting Ash' from non strikers end as well.
Worst 2 days of test cricket arguably ever #WIvInd— Man of Justice (@SuperGops) August 11, 2016
Once in a blue moon!
A good Ishant Sharma over means at maximum 1 good ball.— Nikhil (@CricCrazyNIKS) August 10, 2016
His coach taught him 'Accuracy is the key'
Bowling down the leg side from both over and round the wicket - some talent, Ishant.— Nikhil (@CricCrazyNIKS) August 10, 2016
At least he is a nightmare for the text commentators!
Jadeja is a nightmare, especially for ones who do text commentary. https://t.co/LoNJBaqE6R— Nikhil (@CricCrazyNIKS) August 10, 2016
Only thing I like when Indian bowlers are not picking wickets is Kohli's face.— Sampath (@SAMPATHB24) August 10, 2016
Take a chill pill man!
Joining the ELITE list!
Century number 4 vs WI for Ashwin...well done 😊👍👏👏 also, a pat on the back to the team management for promoting him up the order 👍— Aakash Chopra (@cricketaakash) August 10, 2016
