One such Indian fan’s reaction celebrating Ajinkya Rahane’s stunning innings caught the attention of the cameraman in the reserve day of WTC Final at the Ageas Bowl. As Rahane initially began to dominate with the bat, the fan was seen pumping his fist up in the air and celebrating giddily.

The Instagram handle of the world governing body of cricket shared snapshot of both the moments, along with the video juxtaposing it with Rahane’s out — leaving all in splits.

The moment quickly garnered a lot of attention online and while most were left laughing out loud seeing the sudden change in emotion, others thought it was Indian version of ‘waqt badal gaye, jazbat badal gaye’ meme. Soon, the clip started to get meme treatment on Twitter as well, with people coming up with relatable situation to match the clip.
