The old drunken man said throw 19th over first to avoid India’s failure in the second last over.



A hilarious video grabbed our attention on social media, where a village drunk man can be seen giving a terrific solution to overcome Team India’s failure in 19th over. The video was shared by Chhattisgarh IAS officer Awanish Saran.

In the video an old man can be seen in a drunken state, when he’s asked what should team India do to stop losing out the match in the 19th over. The man who looks totally out of senses comes up with a rather comic solution, when he says, “19wa over pehle fekwa lo” (then throw the 19th over first).

And last night both the teams played the third match in Hyderabad’s Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium. With Virat Kohli’s 68 of 43 balls and Suryakumar Yadav’s 69 of 39 balls helped India to Australia by 2-1 in the three match T20 series. Coming to bat first, Australia made 186 runs, but the current form of India middle order batsmen found the run chase too easy.

After winning the T20 series by 2-1 against Australia, India will now play host to South Africa for the three-match T20 series before heading to Australia for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022, which will also be played in Australia from October 16.
