Rohit Sharma won the draw against New Zealand and cricket twitter has gone wild with memes


India beat visiting New Zealand in the T20I opening competition in Jaipur by 5 wickets as Rohit Sharma-Rahul Dravid’s new partnership got off to a positive start. But even before India could pursue the 165 target set by the Black Caps, celebratory memes were circulating the internet. Indian opener and newly appointed full-time T20I skipper Rohit Sharma stepped out to Sawai Mansingh Indoor Stadium and won the draw. We repeat: India won the draw and decided to play bowling. What is the problem, one might ask. Virat Kohli, who recently left the shortest form of the game as a leader, has been “roughed up” when it comes to flipping the coin. In fact, the draw played a key role in the recent T20 World Cup in the UAE, and unfortunately for Kohli, the coin has turned on him in crucial matches.

This is why Wednesday night started with a moral victory hours before India took the game thanks to Sharma’s draw victory and Cricket Twitter knew exactly how to celebrate.

India dominated the debates until the 16th, when Suryakumar Yadav left (62 out of 40). At the end of the 16th, India needed 23 of 24. But the Kiwis fought back late and pushed the match to the last. Needing 10 out of 6, India kept their nerves and sealed the game with two deliveries to spare.
