New Delhi: It was a hectic night for the men in blue squad on the fields of Mohali, as team India faced defeat against Australia in the first T20I on Tuesday. Despite putting up a decent target of 208/6, Rohit Sharam-led team could not defend the score as the Aussies chased it down in 19.2 overs.
The Indian side seemed desperate for wickets throughout the match as all its experienced bowlers apart from Axar Patel put up a flop show, with Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Harshal Patel not being able to pick a single wicket.
In fact, at a point during the game, wicketkeeper Yuzvendra Chahal caught Steve Smith off the stumps on Dinesh Karthik’s ball, though Karthik did not appeal to the umpire under lack of judgement. The incident left the captain Rohit Sharma so frustrated that he even held him by the neck and jokingly choked him.

Meanwhile, another moment from the match surfaced online and proved out to be an instant hit on social media with netizens claiming it to be a fresh addition to the world of memes.
The instance occurred when Umesh Yadav bowled the second over in the game and got stuck with Cameron Green, who went for four boundaries off his first four deliveries.
Yadav being slammed with back to back boundaries in the early overs of Australia’s inning earned worried yet meme-worthy expressions from former India captain Virat Kohli.
