Team India’s World Cup dream ended after they failed to chase 240 runs in the first semi-final against New Zealand in Manchester. Many felt that they would roll over the Kiwis to make it to the final of the tournament but the Kane Williamson-led side stunned everyone. While the fans and the cricketers are still recovering from the loss, Iceland Cricket’s official Twitter handle is doing its usual thing trying to troll India’s political rivals.
It is a known fact that the political parties Congress and Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) are more often at the loggerheads. Recently, the BJP won the general elections for the second consecutive time and there was even a lot of talk about the government playing its part in making the Indian team wear the Orange jersey in the World Cup game against England.
Some of the Congress leaders also accused the Prime Minister Narendra Modi of playing saffron politics in the sport. A lot was said over the jersey from both the sides but the Indian captain Virat Kohli was happy donning a changed kit and expressed excitement over playing in it ahead of the match.
BJP’s post-tournament analysis
An image is currently going viral on social media which highlights Jawaharlal Nehru’s name after considering one letter from every Indian player’s name in the squad. Iceland Cricket posted the same image on its Twitter handle and hilariously mentioned that they didn’t understand the context of the same.
Nehru was the Congress leader and it is nothing but a sly dig from some of the social media gimmicks and Iceland Cricket has managed to make the most of the opportunity in a hilarious way. “Someone said they found “the BJP’s post-tournament analysis”. We don’t really understand it so we thought we’d put it on Twitter so you can explain it to us. #CWC19,” the tweet read.
Here’s the tweet:
