Hilarity ensued in the current events following the semi-final matches and the moments were made viral among cricket fans. During the recent 2019 ICC World Cup, the Indian team’s loss in these semi-finals came as a tremendous shock for the entire country. India had entered their tournament as hot favorites; however, the team failed to move beyond the semi-final threshold. Although it has been three months to this defeat, cricket fans are not able to shake the moment from their strong memory.
A contributing reason to all the hype behind this failure is that India’s Men In Blue had outshined everyone else in the entire tournament, but failed to keep their calm during the semi-finals. As a result, they were pulverized under the mounting pressure of the big events. Apart from some players like MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja, each member of India’s batting line-up got a run for his money at the bowling brilliance of the Kiwis. During one part of the match, the Indian batsmen scored only 5 runs for 3 wickets, sending the top-3 players to retrace their steps back to the stands.
Virat Kohli, the Indian skipper, who happens to be skilled while handling such circumstances, also succumbed to his nerves and got dismissed at 1 run. This caused Delhi’s cricketer to face huge criticism in these past months. He was trolled globally for not being able to rise up to the pressure of such big matches.

Kohli gets trolled all over again
The creators of a famous sitcom show known as taarak mehta ka ooltah chashmah exploited India’s defeat to be a part of their show’s content. In episode 2828, the taarak mehta ka ooltah chashmah sitcom’s characters had to solve one riddle that said, “Humesha jeetne wala” (which means the one who wins all the time). The people first guessed the answer to be Virat Kohli.
But what followed next was a savage response. A member present in the show rejected this guess, saying that the answer could not be India’s 30-year-old cricketer because he was defeated the recent 2019 ICC World Cup semi-finals. The series of these events became quite a hilarity and were made viral throughout the fans of the cricketing world.
