We just witnessed one of the greatest test matches in history between England and Australia in the fourth test match of the ongoing Ashes series, but it wasn’t the only one. Another Twitter contest is gaining popularity. On Sunday, the Kolkata Knight Riders attempted to mock MS Dhoni by comparing the action from the final day of the fourth ashes test to a screenshot from a 2016 match between KKR and Rising Pune Supergiants (RPSG). As Nathan Lyon bowled on the final day of the 4th Ashes Test on Sunday, the Australians put all of their fielders in close catching positions for England’s final two batters.

The image of all the players fielding close catches on the infield was trending on social media even after the test match ended. Following suit, KKR went back to a 2016 IPL match between KKR and Pune, when Piyush Chawla bowled to him and Dhoni had fielders around the pad, and Gautam Gambhir laid out the same fielding plan for Supergiants captain MS Dhoni, who was having a poor season with the bat and, as we all know, had problems playing leg spin throughout his career. However, this did not go as planned for KKR, and they were forced to deal with fan outrage and fury in response to their tweet, with even all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja taking a hit.

So here are some of the reactions from Twitter.
