India locked horns with Bangladesh in the second semi-final of the tournament, with the winner playing surprise package Pakistan in the final at The Oval on Sunday, June 18. Bangladesh came into the semi final off the back of impressive performances against New Zealand and Australia in the group stages, and faced an Indian side who, despite being dominant against both South Africa and Pakistan in the group stage, did lose to Sri Lanka, showing they were beatable on the day.

Many Pakistanis had predicted that Bangladesh would go on to beat India, and meet Pakistan in the final, but it was not meant to be. India were absolutely powerful on the day, restricting Bangladesh to a nominal total of 264, and chased it with relative ease, with Rohit Sharma being the standout performer, scoring yet another ODI century. It was Virat Kohli though, who became the center of attention on social media, not because of his bat, but because of his unusual celebration after taking Mushfiqur Rahim’s catch to dismiss him.

Virat Kohli, who is always animated the cricket field, has never done this. Take a look..

As always, the meme-makers of the world saw an opportunity, and voila..

The Champions Trophy 2017 has given everybody the dream final. Pakistan vs India will be a mouthwatering contest, in which the men in green would have to play exceptionally well to beat the in-form Indians. May the memes continue to come our way. Enjoy the final.
