‘Ajay Devgn & SRK’s Successor’: Kanpur Fan Talking With Mouth Full Of Gutka Trends Online

The Day 1 of the first Test between India and New Zealand was full of action as players from both the teams tried to push each other on the backfoot but, in the end, it all ended fair and square.

There were plenty of positives for both sides. For India it was the batting of Shubman Gill, Shreyas Iyer and Ravindra Jadeja, who all scored half-centuries while the Kiwis must be happy with the way their bowlers bowled, especially Kyle Jamieson who picked up three wickets.

But more than the players' performance, there were several other off-field moments that made the headlines and kept the social media buzzing throughout the day. 

The highlight of the day was the picture of a local cricket fan who was spotted talking over the phone with his mouth full of ‘Gutka’. This visual provided the fans with the opportunity to make full use of their creativity and they came up with some rib-tickling memes. 

Former India opener Wasim Jaffer, who is known for his wit and humour, also posted a hilarious meme, featuring the famous dialogue from the movie ‘Phir Hera Pheri’.

With the match taking place at Kanpur’s Green Park, the fans said that it was almost inevitable that we saw a picture like this. Some even joked that even if they didn’t know where the match was happening, a mere look at this visual and they would’ve guessed the venue correctly.

All these jokes stem from the fact that people of Kanpur are known to be in deep love with their flavoured  betel nut, at least this is what we are told in movies and other forms of entertainment. 

People of Kanpur had to wait over five years to see an international Test match at the venue because the last fixture was played between the same two oppositions back in 2016, which the hosts won by 197 runs. 

Talking about the on-field action, carrying on his fine form Shreyas Iyer added his name in the elite list of players who have scored a century on their Test debut.

India didn’t have the greatest of starts on the second day as overnight batter Jadeja was cleaned up early by veteran New Zealand pacer Tim Southee but it didn’t disturb Iyer’s attention and eventually reached the three-figure mark. Before perishing for 105, Iyer’s knock ensured that India incah towards a strong finish in the first innings.
