IPL 2019 Eliminator between Delhi Capitals and SunRisers Hyderabad produced a lot of drama, tension and a hilarious meme fest on Twitter.
A good start from Martin Guptill and a couple of entertaining cameos from Vijay Shankar and Mohammed Nabi helped the SunRisers Hyderabad post a respectable total of 162.
In the second innings, Prithvi Shaw scored a brilliant half-century putting the Delhi Capitals in the driving seat in the IPL 2019 eliminator.
But, Khaleel Ahmed dismissed skipper Shreyas Iyer and Shaw in the same over. While Shaw’s wicket was more important, it was Iyer’s wicket which was celebrated by Khaleel in an entertaining manner that sparked a lot of twitter reactions.
Have a look at Khaleel Ahmed’s celebration.

Some suggested that the left arm seamer was citing his availability for the World Cup.
He’s was trying to call MSK Prasad (Chief selector) that he’s still available in place of Bhuvi or may be Jadhav

Amit Mishra a typical Delhiite – changing lanes in traffic and hoping there are no consequences. #DCvSRH
