While fans on either side of the border experienced various emotions as the match unfolded at Old Trafford, there was one moment that stood out. It came in the first half of the game when the players took the field after the first of three rain delays.
The players were forced to walk off the field in the 47th over of the Indian innings as rain took over in Manchester. They returned after about an hour in cold conditions and that break seemed to have had an effect on Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed.
Just as the first ball after the rain delay was about to be bowled, the veteran wicketkeeper let out an almighty yawn. And the internet, of course, was quick to spot it.
As if his team’s dismal performance on the field wasn’t enough, Ahmed was mocked for his lack of intensity in such a crucial game.
