When it comes to India, Bollywood and cricket remain our twin obsessions. Combine the two the sheer love of fans is unparalleled. Latest example of this hit combo is a video of Bollywood actor Bobby Deol easing into a role of an umpire — and the result is hilarious.
As Bobby memes have taken internet by storm thanks to the actor’s recent OTT debut, a Twitter handle (@Bobbywood) dedicated to him has been gifting all amusing moments using many snippets from the actor’s films from the 90s. Recently, the handle came up with a new role for the Aashram actor using his popular dancing moves to mimic the gestures of umpires in the world of cricket.
As Deol has his own quirky style of shaking a leg, which never really earned him much plaudits for his dancing skills, it seems quite befitting in the world of sports. From giving an out to indicating a no ball, his moves seems perfect on the field!

As the video went viral, netizens were left in splits and many came up with other gestures to add on to the list. Others also started to tag ICC and IPL and demanded to induct the actor in their elite umpires panel.
Here’s how netizens reacted:
