The fourth day of the World Test Championship (WTC) Final between India and New Zealand at The Ageas Bowl in Southampton was washed out due to rain. India were bowled out for 217 in the 1st innings and New Zealand were at 101/2 in 49 overs at Stumps on Day 3. With no action possible on a crucial fourth day, fans couldn’t help but showcase their feelings through hilarious memes. As BCCI sent out a tweet after Stumps were called on Day 4, fans bombarded the Twitter thread with memes. BCCI wrote, “Update: Play on Day 4 abandoned due to rain. We thank our fans who turned up and kept the tempo high. See you again, tomorrow. #TeamIndia #WTC21.”

Fans made references to various Bollywood movies, new and old, to talk about ICC’s decision-making in the WTC Final.
A fan replied to BCCI’s tweet and suggested to hold at a best-of-five Super Over contest to get a result out of the current game.
