Washington Sundar was one of the unsung heroes in India’s win over England in the fourth Test, winning the series 3–1 for the hosts. Sundar scored 96 runs to save India’s innings and helped India take a lead in the first innings from a 145/6 position in partnership of two centuries. The 21-year-old, however, managed to score four runs and scored less than the first Test century, when India added their last three wickets with no runs in the interval of five runs. Wasim Jaffer, who has impressed the netizens with his meme-making skills, shared a lamb making a comeback on Axar Patel, Ishant Sharma and Mohammed Siraj, who were out in quick succession and Sundar denied his century done. Ravi Shastri is not bothered by social media trolls and mimes, says ‘It’s Banter’ (see video).
Jafar shared a meme from the Hindi film 3 Idiots and trolled Axar, Ishant and Siraj. All three were out within five deliveries after Sundar was trapped at 96 for each other. It started when Axar was run-out for stealing a non-existent single. Ishant Sharma was later caught by Ben Stokes, who ended Siraj’s stumps two runs later and remained unbeaten on 96 to end India’s first innings with Sundar. This was the second time in his four Test matches career, Sundar was denied a Test century. They were bowled out. Hardik Pandya ready to make his place in England T20I series in India.

Axar, Ishant and Siraj next meet Washington’s father at a ceremony

Jaffer captures the meme, saying, “Axar, Ishant and Siraj next meet Washington’s father at a ceremony.” Meme is from the scene of Mona’s wedding from the film 3 Idiots where Aamir Khan (Rancho), Sharman Joshi (Raju) and R Madhavan (Farhan) have secretly caught Mona and Kareena Kapoor’s father Boman Irani for dinner.
Jaffer also praised Sundar for his knock and said “But seriously it’s not less than 96 * hundred, very well played @ Sundarwashi5.” He also received a response from Sundar, who thanked Jaffer and jokingly said that his father would “feed a lot of biryani and pudding” to the trio (Axar, Ishant and Siraj)! One look at his answer.

Reaction to Sundar’s father began when he expressed disappointment over missing his son’s century in Australia. Like against England in the first Test, Sundar was left for 85 in the final Test at Brisbane, when India were dismissed. His father then said that he was unhappy Sundar could not score a century.
