After suffering an embarrassing loss in the first Test match against the Aussies, and being reduced to less than 200 runs in the first innings of the second test being played at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru, the only way Indian pacers seemed to be able to get back at the visitors was by sledging them.
Ishant Sharma, who was all charged up, bowled a fiery spell and tried to unsettle skipper Steve Smith by beating his bat on several occasions. Sharma, who has had a bit of a dry spell with wickets, was quite animated, making faces and mocking the Aussie skipper, while Virat Kohli looked on, amused at the spectacle.
And he lost it.

And social media lost little time in making Ishant memes.
