‘Indian bowlers found guilty of…’: UP Police posts witty message for Rohit Sharma’s Men in Blue after World Cup win

As every proud Indian, the Uttar Pradesh police also congratulated Rohit Sharma-led team India for the phenomenal T20 World Cup win against South Africa. However, the police force did not take the conventional way of posting a congratulatory message!

Indian cricket team, led by skipper Rohit Sharma, regained the T20 World champion trophy after 17 long years after beating South Africa by seven runs in the finals in Barbados’ Bridgetown on Saturday.

In a witty post on X (formerly Twitter), the UP police shared a picture saying, “BOW(LED) to brilliance.”

However, the caption of the clever post was even better!

The UP police said the Indian bowlers have been found “guilty” of breaking South African hearts, as they sentenced them to “lifelong love from fans.”

Breaking news: Indian bowlers found guilty of breaking South African hearts. Sentence: Lifelong love from a billion fans!” the post read.
