Popular Indian food app, Zomato, and Careem, a ride-hailing service, joined the WT20 meme bandwagon as the arch-rivals played against each other in a crucial world cup game. While Virat’s heroics facilitated the single-handed win for the Indian side, the food delivery app could not keep its calm and tweeted, “Dear Pakistan, ordered a defeat? Virat your service.”

Zomato and Careem Enjoyed the Limelight
While Indians were busy asking for discounts on Zomato’s post, Careem responded to the Indian food delivery app by saying, “We don’t have cheat days” referring to the highly controversial no ball that was also the most heated topic of discussion among the cricket fraternity. The Pakistani users quickly responded to the jolly banter between Zomato and Careem, saying they would recommend Careem to everyone after the lethal response to Zomato.

The cricket match between Pakistan and India sparks a frenzy among both nations on a different level. It is that one day when everyone stays glued to their TV screens, not daring to miss a single moment. Pak-Indo game is considered one the greatest cricket rivalry of all time given that both countries have also suspended the bilateral series for the longest time, and they only meet in ICC tournaments.
The Last Over Craziness
The final over of India Vs. Pakistan had two separate controversial moments with the losing side’s fans up in arms. First was Mohammad Nawaz’s full toss, deemed a waist-height no-ball, although TV replays showed that it was a 50-50 call, and Kohli was also well outside the crease. The second was Kohli getting bowled out on a free hit and making additional three runs without the ball being declared dead.
