On Sunday, cricket supporters watching the Australia vs India test match underway at The Gabba in Brisbane had been enthralled by Washington Sundar and Shardul Thakur’s partnership on the field scoring 123-runs for the 7th wicket. Sundar who is a debutant completed with a rating of 62 which provided a ‘no-look’ 6 that was nothing quick of a thrill. In undertaking so, he broke various information which includes a 110-year-outdated file in Test matches in Australia and a 30-calendar year-outdated file formerly held by Kapil Dev and Manoj Prabhakar.

In circumstance you missed it, Sundar and Thakur outdid themselves and that no-appear six was, effectively, ati sundar:

Though congratulations expectedly came pouring for Washington, his father M. Sundar did not see why any individual would settle for significantly less than a 100. He explained to IANS (by means of News18), “I am upset he did not get a 100. When Siraj came, he ought to have hit fours and sixes. He is capable of that. He ought to have absent for sixes. He could have long gone for pulls and large hits. Possibly, he imagined of seeking to arrive shut to Australia’s overall as the guide was very significantly less,”

If you are brown and you’re studying this, you know how painfully familiar the reaction is. This is probably 1 of the greatest illustrations of peak Indian guardian behaviour. It is universally acknowledged that brown moms and dads have high expectations for their young children and it appears to be like that applies to every little thing involving university examination papers to the India vs Australia examination match. Indians are not stunned and just cannot support but relate to the problem that has played out a person much too quite a few periods with varying stakes.

Meanwhile, admirers and the cricketing community confirmed their appreciation for Sundar and Thakur’s feat.

Perfectly, one could do the place happy but there is no way you could make an Indian parent happy. Only 100 (not even 98) will do the trick.
