Having weathered the storm of a Test loss against England and the mockery that came with it, India have finally given an answer of their own. A 2-1 T20I win and a dominating ODI win have allowed Indian fans to forget the Test loss and enjoy the current domination.
India’s change in fortunes have been led by the sensational bowler Jasprit Bumrah, who took six wickets and made a career-best performance in the first ODI. Spearheaded by Bumrah, the Indian pace bowling was unplayable to the English batters. Despite coming with a lot of quality, they fell like autumn leaves.
Indian bowling was so good that four of the English top 6 went out for a duck. Jason Roy, Joe Root, Ben Stokes and Liam Livingstone were the four batters who could not open their accounts in the first ODI. Remarkably, they were all dismissed by Bumrah.
An all-round dominating performance from India allowed the fans to have a field day on social media. Sanjana Ganesan who is a TV presenter and Bumrah’s wife also was on it while talking about the food area at the Kennington Oval, London.
While recording a set for the Sony Sports Network, Ganesan said, “The food area is a busy place its chock-a-block full of English fans coz they don’t wanna watch the cricket. And there are plenty of stalls here, there’s pie, hotdogs, typical matchday food. We’ve come to a stall that not a lot of the English batters would like to come to. It’s called the crispy duck. We’ve got a duck wrap with us. We want to see how good the duck is off the field because the ducks on the field have been absolutely fantastic.”
The video has been spreading like wildfire on social media with many Indian and English fans sharing the same. Naturally, there were many reactions to the trolling of English batters by Sanjana Ganesan, let’s look at some of them.
