The cricketing world is no stranger to the power of social media and the hilarious meme culture that accompanies it. In a recent turn of events, young Indian batting sensation Shubman Gill found himself at the centre of a meme storm after an encounter with a Pakistani fangirl in Colombo during the Asia Cup 2023.
Shubman Gill’s remarkable performance
Gill recently shut his critics with a brilliant century against Bangladesh in the last Super Fours match of the Asia Cup 2023. The talented Indian opener showcased his skills by hammering an impressive 121 runs in the contest. Although India lost the closely contested game by six runs, Gills’s effort received huge praise from fans and experts alike.
Apart from this, Gill is also the top-scorer of the ongoing tournament with 275 runs in 5 matches so far and will be looking to carry forward his form when India takes on Sri Lanka in the final of the Asia Cup 2023.

The viral meme fest
As soon as the picture of Gill with the Pakistani fan hit the internet, it set social media ablaze. Fans from both sides of the border came together to flood the social media with hilarious memes. Most of the fans teased Gill with Sarah Tendulkar‘s posts, as the Punjab-born cricketer is rumoured to be dating her for a long time.
Interestingly, the girl snapped with Shubman previously made headlines for supporting Virat Kohli over Babar Azam in the India versus Pakistan group stage match during the Asia Cup 2023.
