Today when India entered the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg with the intention of saving their pride, they couldn't hold on for long and lost the early two wickets.
At this point, when Cheteshwar Pujara came in to bat, he found himself in a situation where he couldn't rush with the runs. While he (wisely) decided to play it safe, his pace was maybe just a bit too slow, so slow in fact that he didn't even manage to score a single run in 50 balls.
The moment C. Pujara ran for his first run after facing 53 balls, cricket fans all over India heaved a sigh of relief.
While we were waiting for Pujara to score his first run, here's how Twitter lost it completely.
Meanwhile Manforce and Durex approached to Cheteshwar Pujara for more dots😂😂#SAvIND— Rahul Rathore (@rrahul789) January 24, 2018
Because he literally took decades scoring his first run.
Till the time , Pujara scores his 50, Donald Trump will no longer be the US President #SAvsIND— Pranjal Deka (@pranjalslash) January 24, 2018
My mobile battery is getting dead, was full charged when Pujara came to bat. Really. Going to charge it again. #SAvsIND— Tanuj Singh (@TheTanuj10) January 24, 2018
