England failed to take advantage after winning the toss and opting to bat first in the third Test at the newly named Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. The visitors were bowled out for 112, with the slower bowlers spinning a web around the English batsmen.
Apart from Zak Crawley, none of the English batsmen looked comfortable on the turning track. Ishant Sharma started the party after he got Dominic Sibley early on, celebrating his 100th Test with a wicket. It wasae spin show from there on, with Axar Patel (6/38) and Ravichandran Ashwin (3/26) proving to be a handful for England.
With only one England batsmen going past 20, fans on Twitter had a gala time as they reacted to their dismal batting performance. From hilarious memes to former cricketers criticising England's mindset, here are the best reactions from Twitter.
England heavily criticised for their batting approach
Many slammed England for the way they batted in the first innings. Despite winning the toss, everyone apart from Crawley folded without a fight. The same point was made by many ex-cricketers as they accused England of having a weak mindset going into the third Test.
Praise for Indian bowlers plenty after they dismantle England
Although England shot themselves in the foot with the way they approached the innings, credit was also handed to the Indian bowlers as fans praised them for being right on the money from ball one.
Memes galore after England stunned in Ahmedabad
As always, the comical memes to come out of England’s innings were a highlight. With posts laughing about the regular fall of wickets to many trolling England's batting performance, Twitter was home to some of the most hilarious memes.
