Captain Dinesh Karthik's team Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) lost the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 match against Mumbai Indians (MI) on Wednesday in Abu Dhabi by 49 runs.

MI put on a great show while setting a target of 195 runs for KKR. Captain Rohit Sharma contributed 80 runs and Suryakumar Yadav hit 47 runs with fine knocks. Hardi Pandya, a magnificent all-rounder displayed fireworks with his bat in the third over of Pat Cummins by scoring 15 runs.

Along with these fireworks, Pandya entertained people with an interesting way of losing his wicket. While dodging a wide ball from Andre Russell in the 19th over, Pandya did not realise how close he was standing to the stumps and accidentally hit them with his bat.

Social media seized the misfortune moment of Pandya and turned it into an opportunity for trending memes.

When Pandya walked off the ground after scoring 18 in 13 deliveries, Twitteratis started posting memes with jokes related to popular TV shows.

KKR started great with Dinesh Karthik's decision to field first after winning the toss and Shivam Mavi taking the wicket of Quinton de Kock early.

KKR stopped MI from reaching the mark of 200 despite the magnificent innings of Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, and Hardik Pandya.

But the poor show of KKR's batsmen and good bowling of MI thwarted the chase of KKR at 146/9.
