"Saving His Gujju Captain With…”: Nitish Kumar Funny Memes and Jokes Go Viral After USA Batter’s Heroic Against Pakistan

Funny memes and jokes featuring Nitish Kumar, the Indian-American batsman playing for the USA cricket team, have gone viral following his crucial last-ball four that took their Group A clash against Pakistan into a Super Over on Thursday. The memes humorously compare Nitish Kumar, the veteran politician and leader of the Janata Dal (United), currently in demand to form a government in India after the Lok Sabha elections 2024, with USA cricketer Nitish Kumar, who played a pivotal role in saving the USA team from defeat against Pakistan.

Social media platforms have been flooded with memes and jokes about Nitish Kumar's crucial role in the match.

Here are some of the best memes:

The match, which went down to a Super Over, saw the USA players maintaining their composure to triumph over the Babar Azam-led side in a thrilling encounter. Winning the toss and opting to bowl first, the USA restricted Pakistan to 159/7 in their 20 overs. Babar Azam led the Pakistani charge with a steady 44 off 43 balls, while Shadab Khan's aggressive 40 off 25 balls boosted their total. Nosthush Kenjige was the standout performer for the United States, claiming three wickets.

In response, Monank Patel's brisk half-century (50) provided a strong start for the USA team, complemented by Andries Gous' 35 runs. Aaron Jones then took on the responsibility in the latter stages of the chase, scoring an impressive unbeaten 36 off 26 balls alongside Nitish Kumar, who contributed 14 not out. However, the Pakistan pacers bowled well in the death overs, resulting in a tie of totals at the end of 20 overs. Pakistan's fielding and batting let them down in the Super Over, as the USA notched up a memorable win.

Brief score: Pakistan 159/7 (Babar Azam 44, Shadab Khan 40, Shaheen Afridi 23*; Nosthush Kenjige 3/30) vs US 159 (Monank Patel 50, Andries Gous 35, Aaron Jones 36; Mohammad Amir 1/25).
