#5 Ishant Sharma imitating Steve Smith
This funny moment came in the 2nd Test of Australia's tour of India at the start of the year.
The Australians started the tour on a high after defeating India in the first Test of the series by 333 runs. In the following Test, batting first, India was all out for 189 on the first itself. In the morning session of Day 2, Indian bowlers were trying hard to pick wickets but without much success. This left Ishant Sharma frustrated. In a moment of comic desperation, he tried to mimic Steve Smith after the Australian batsman was beaten on a good length delivery bowled by him.
Soon, that 'Sharma face' became the butt of a joke and social media was flooded with trolls and memes about the same. This moment made the commentators, as well as the spectators, burst into laughter. Even the Indian captain, Virat Kohli, was having a laugh at this epic moment.
