In one of the most bizarre and strangest things to stop play, the Wankhede Stadium Spidercam forced players to take early Tea on Day 3 of the second Test. A buzz went around the stadium as players gathered around the Spidercam, which was hovering not too far above the ground and refusing to go back up. The entire situation soon led to some light moments shared by the Indian team contingent around the camera. The players took the opportunity to have some fun with Team India captain Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav leading the way. While Kohli seemed to be interacting and making faces while looking into the camera, Suryakumar Yadav was quick to pose with his impressive glasses on.
One of the videos also showed Virat Kohli talking and gesticulating at the Spidercam and asking it to move back up.
The entire episode served as a perfect comic relief and led to a meme fest on Twitter.
