Vinay Kumar’s Last Over In CSK v KKR Gave Twitter Lots To Meme About!

And The eleventh edition of IPL has only just begun, which means we’ve got plenty of entertainment and cricket to look forward to. I’m sure you’ve already pegged your loyalty on your favourite team(s) and players. But if you’re one of the Tweeple, your loyalties are slightly wavering, because Twitter humour spares no one! And after last night, Twitter is slinging shots at KKR’s Vinay Kumar and his final over bowling against CSK!

400 First class wickets. Thankyou all πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»

KKR, batting first, managed to put an impressive target of 203 on the board for CSK to chase, with Andre Russell’s glorious 11 sixes. Until the last over of the match, the scales were tipped in KKR’s favour. And then, Vinay Kumar happened.

In a final over, where CSK needed to put 17 more runs on the board to win the match, Vinay Kumar became their Knight(Rider)-in-shining armour.

With Vinay Kumar bowling, Dwayne Bravo and Ravindra Jadeja managed to knock off 17 runs. And when Jadeja hit the final six, Vinay Kumar’s fate was sealed.

The trolls were coming for him.

1. Loyalties questioned.

2. Arre Ishant, tum?

3. Bas kar ab! Rulayega kya?

4. Khatam kar hi diya!

5. Ouch! I wonder what the group name is?

6. Umm… burn?

7. I sense a joke format coming….

8. Whatever you think he can do good, he can do better!

9. CSK fans be like, “Make fraandship with us?”

10. Kumar’s stint was a sort of dΓ©jΓ  vu! Remember Ashok Dinda had such a moment too?

11. Bhai bhai!

12. Legend!

13. Sorry Dhoni, someone else gets to be the finisher tonight!

14. Throwback to Vinay Kumar’s Mumbai Indians days!

15. Ya. Okay.

16. Them loyalties again!

17. Golmaal hai bhai sab golmaal hai!

18. When you put it like that!

19. Luck by chance happened this time!

20. Undercover agent?

21.Β Koi pitne wala hai!

Every IPL season comes with ups and downs for the players. While all of this was just the morning after humour, it only lasts until another match gives the Tweeple someone else to praise or mock, right!

In fact, Rajdeep Sardesai’s tweet pretty much sums up the sentiment!

It’s okay, Vinay Kumar! Better luck next time!
