Yesterday’s cricket World Cup match marked a historic win for India. Their win left desi fans in a frenzy even though Virat Kohli fell short of his second World Cup century just by a mere 5 runs. However, India made fans proud by winning the match with 4 wickets and 12 balls still left.
Besides praise for India’s 5th bombastic win, after the match against New Zealand, a fan took the spotlight on the internet. During the match, a man held up a placard that read “Baap ka Dada ka, Mahi Bhai ke Run out ka, Sabka Badla Lega Tera Chiku.”
Who Was Behind The Viral Placard?
The identity of the fan who brought the banner with him is still unclear though his face has been plastered all over the internet since the match.
What Was It About?
The emotional statement on the banner corresponds to the 20-year history of the Indian team against New Zealand players. Ever since 2003, India had lost every match against New Zealand in an ICC event but with yesterday’s win, history was rewritten.
When Was This?
The placard was seen at the IND vs NZ match on October 22.
Where Did The Match Play Out?
The match was held in the foggy interiors of Dharamshala in Himachal Pradesh.
Why Did It Go Viral?
The fan’s placard was somewhat of a prediction for what was yet to come during the match. Chiku aka Virat Kohli did indeed take his cricket ancestors and especially MS Dhoni’s revenge for the 2019 runout that left India devastated at the time, for the team fell through from the 2019 World Cup race after their loss to New Zealand in the semi-finals.
How Did The Internet React To The Placard?
The internet was incredibly proud of India’s gameplay for yesterday’s match which they openly showcased in posts with the image of this fan and his iconic placard for the team.
