1st Test Adelaide: Thanks to Rohit Sharma, Mumbai Indians became the butt of all jokes in Twitterverse, after the captain of the Indian Premier League franchise Rohit Sharma failed in the ongoing first Test at Adelaide. Mumbai Indians took to Twitter and asked fans if they were already awake to watch Rohit Sharma bat. Once the batsman failed, the tweet backfired and got bashed on social media. He scored a solitary run and was dismissed by Nathan Lyon, who also was the pick of the Australian bowlers with six wickets to his name. Soon, realising the franchise is getting trolled, they deleted the post.
But, by then, fans had already taken screenshots of it and had a whale of a time at its expense.
Here is how the post backfired.
Meanwhile, it was Nathan Lyon who got his Rohit Sharma as Peter Handscomb took the catch. It was an excellent catch by Handscomb. Close in catches are never easy and more so at silly point. Rohit was on the move but got undone by the turn and bounce on the off break. Struck the pad and took a tiny chunk of the blade before flying towards Handscomb reacted excellently to take a diving catch to his right. After a largely insipid session, Australia had been given something to cheer about. Yet, one feels with a lead of 275 runs will be the happier team at lunch on Day 4.
