After India’s dominant show in the first three ODIs and clinching the 5-match ODIs, India were brought crashing down to earth by hosts New Zealand following a humiliating eight-wicket loss in the fourth ODI at Seddon Park in Hamilton on Thursday.
Chasing a paltry 93 runs to win, despite losing early wickets, New Zealand went on to win with Ross Taylor scoring a quickfire 37 runs from 25 balls to take his side home
In one of the poorest batting performances in ODIs in recent times, India, minus captain Virat Kohli, were bundled out for just 92 with New Zealand overhauling the target in double quick time to win back some pride.
Asked to bat, India had a horrible start and none of the middle order batsmen failed to make the most of the opportunity. Trent Boult took a fifer with Colin de Grandhomme picking three to leave India in tatters.
With the hosts chasing the target in just 14.4 overs, India had to face the ignominy of their biggest ever loss in terms of balls to spare with 212 balls remaining when the game ended.
India’s loss to Sri Lanka in 2010 in Dambulla, where the hosts reached the target with 209 balls to spare, was earlier their worst in terms of balls remaining.
While this is being counted as one of the worst performances by India, the anger amongst fans brought out the best in them with some hilarious memes doing the rounds on twitter now.
Take a look at some of the funny one:
