Amul’s subtle dig has left desi fans impressed!

Featuring Rohit Sharma in the cartoon for his 140 runs that helped India raise a big total, Amul lauded the Mumbai boy for his second century at the ICC World Cup 2019. In brilliant wordplay, Amul wrote, “What a Matchester, Sabka dil jeeta!”

However, it’s not the portrayal of the star Indian player that garnered all the attention online, but the depiction of Pakistan skipper and wicket-keeper Sarfaraz Ahmed that left people in splits. During the match, Pakistan captain was seen repeatedly yawning behind the stumps.

While on Twitter, another summed it as, “There was a yawning gap between the performance of the 2 teams….but …but Boyz played well Inshallah.”

Team India continued their winning streak against Pakistan in the World Cup winning their seventh match against the arch-rival on Sunday.
