India pacer Shardul Thakur was on fire as the hosts were in a spot of bother in the first ODI in Pune on Tuesday. He came into bowl when Jonny Bairstow was going great guns and the game was slowly was surely slipping out of their grasp. He removed Bairstow and got India back in the game. Bairstow missed out on a brilliant hundred by six runs.

Soon after that, he picked up a couple of quick wickets of Eoin Morgan and Jos Buttler to get the hosts back on top. Following his good show with the ball, fans reacted. While some fans called him ‘Lord’ as Thakur in Hindi means God and soon he was one of the biggest trends in the country.

Here is how fans reacted:

At the time of filing the copy, Thakur had taken three wickets for 37 runs in six overs. With four more overs to go, Thakur would be hoping to get a five-wicket haul.

England is reeling at 223 for six in 37 overs.
