A recent episode of the very popular American sitcom 'The Big Bang Theory' left Indian cricket fans surprised after names of star players Ravichandran Ashwin, Hardik Pandya and Bhuvneshwar Kumar were mentioned during the 11th season. The show, which is based on the lives of four scientists with one of them being Rajesh Koothrappali, played by Kunal Nayyar, has a huge fan following in India. In one of the scenes, Rajesh and 'Howard Wolowitz', played by Simon Helberg, are at the bar where a cricket match is being screened.

"I don't get how you can enjoy cricket, it makes no sense!" Wolowitz tells Rajesh.

"That's Ravichandran Ashwin, he is amazing. He makes Hardik Pandya look like Bhuvneshwar Kumar," replies Rajesh.

"Wooah, wooah, wooah! Save syllables for the rest of us," says Wolowitz.

The joke on the cricketers, however, left the Indian fans rather unimpressed.

On the other hand, Bhuvneshwar and Pandya have been in top form in the recently concluded series. The two are now widely regarded as India's most improved cricketers.
