With the full crowds allowed on the current New Zealand India tour, the fun, frolics and magic of having people living in the stadiums are back. However, this time home viewers had a great time watching a man filmed chewing ‘gutkha’ while talking on the phone in the stands of Kanpur during the first test between India and New Zealand. .
Kanpur, being in Uttar Pradesh is infamous for tobacco and pan masala and there have been several jokes and memes on the same. Thursday’s incident gave fans a golden opportunity and they did not disappoint.
It took place between the overs on Day 1 after 70 overs had been completed. The man was talking on the phone while chewing gutkha when the camera caught him. He later realized he was in front of the camera, but the damage was done.
Former Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer came up with a hilarious meme, sensing the person on the other side of the phone as fans reacted to the same as well. Here are a few:
