Bhunveshwar Kumar destroyed the West Indies batting line-up in the post-lunch session on day 4 to ignite the hopes of an Indian victory at St. Lucia. Twitterati saluted the pacer for his performance, but Ishant Sharma was the victim of all the jokes on the day. Here are the best ones.
In the air and he drops it!
King of Swing!
If Bhuvi was a Pakistani bowler, there would have been an article explaining that Samuels wicket by now.— dorku (@Dorkstar) August 12, 2016
That would be interesting!
Marlon Samuels would play a yorker of the backfoot if he could...— cricketingview (@cricketingview) August 12, 2016
The numbers are big!
BCCI ? Time for DRS?
Accuracy is not the key here!
Yo so experienced Ishant Sharma, given second new ball, darts it miles down leg side. 2 Saha's might not be enough to stop that one.— Nikhil (@CricCrazyNIKS) August 12, 2016
Maybe he can win a race for us!
What if Ishant is made to run 10,000 metres' races, will he stop bowling no balls or nearly no balls #WIvInd— Gaurav Sethi (@BoredCricket) August 12, 2016
Make it count this time!
Dear Rohit Sharma, learn something from Bhuvi, he got very few opportunities to play for India in Tests, he didn't miss any.— Sunil- The Cricketer (@1sInto2s) August 12, 2016
You won't get a better chance Rohit Sharma. Make this count.— Nikhil (@CricCrazyNIKS) August 12, 2016
Come on Ro-HIT!
The ODI version of Rohit Sharma on display at St. Lucia.— Arjun Ashok (@arj_90) August 12, 2016
The Best at the moment!
Bhuvneshwar has played in 2 countries outside India and has taken a 5-for in his first innings in both the countries - Eng & WI. #WIvIND— Bharath Seervi (@SeerviBharath) August 12, 2016
Rohit Sharma so kind that he scores some runs at this time of night to ensure trollers don't feel bad watching him score. #WIvIND— Sampath (@SAMPATHB24) August 12, 2016
Clearly not the way!
Too many Brutus!
Poor Bhuvi. Trying to get a 5-fer while competing against KL Rahul, Rohit & Ishant Sharma, and now the umpire too.— Subash Jayaraman (@thecricketcouch) August 12, 2016
Ouch ! This comment would hurt him!
KL Rahul can make Hafeez look positively like Mark Waugh in slips.— Subash Jayaraman (@thecricketcouch) August 12, 2016
The other Rahul with the same attributes was the best!
KL rahul is a very poor catcher. He is, even with gloves on. Without gloves, atrocious— Subash Jayaraman (@thecricketcouch) August 12, 2016
