On Monday, the official handle of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) tweeted a picture of the Indian cricket team playing on their phones while waiting at the Mumbai airport. "As we wait for the departure announcement from Mumbai, some of them are playing a very popular multiplayer game," they wrote, asking their followers to guess which multiplayer game had the players' attention. Three days later, while the tweet itself has garnered thousands of responses (most netizens think the game is PUBG), it has also inspired a hilarious meme on Twitter.
The picture, which shows fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah as the only one without a phone, has been turned into a meme by Twitter users. As it turns out, a lot of people could relate to 'bored' Bumrah. Here are some of the best memes and jokes that he has inspired:

Puzzled, disconcerted, bored Bumrah is how I look when I go to dinner and find everyone at my table on phones between courses, during theatre intervals, on trains and at a meeting before it starts.- Yasmin A. Choudhury (@yasminisyasmin) October 31, 2018

The memes have been curated into their own Twitter Moment.
This is not the first time that a cricketer has been turned into a meme by Twitter users. In the past, that has also happened to Hardik Pandya.
