There is always something or the other happening in the Indian cricket circuit. While the Indian men's cricket team is currently in the United Arab Emirates featuring in the T20 World Cup, the men's domestic season is also set to get underway. Moreover, the age group cricket is also happening and the Women’s U19 One Day Challenger Trophy kicked off on November 2 at the RCA Academy Ground in Jaipur.

While it was only the start of the tournament, one particular player already made headlines and that was none other than India B captain Anushka Sharma. Not only did she make headlines with her all-round show but those following Indian cricket cannot help but bring out the memes as she shares her name with Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma, who happens to be the men's team skipper's wife.

In one such meme, Twitter user @45kusha shared a collage of Virat Kohli's pictures with animated gestures on the field with a caption that read, "Abey isne Cricket khelna kab se shuru kar diya." The user responded this on a BCCI Women's post in which they were updating the scores of the match.

Check out the hilarious tweet here:

Talking about the match, India B posted a score of 221/1 in their 50 overs, courtesy of a hundred from Trisha Gongadi and a 72 from Sharma. The India B skipper who opened the innings made those runs off 114 deliveries with the help of seven boundaries and one six. That was not all as she returned to take 5 wickets for 18 runs in her quota of 10 overs. Other than batting right-handed, she bowls right-arm off-spin and was highly effective in this game as her spell even included a couple of maiden overs.

Two of her five wickets also came in the same over. As a result of her all-round display in the match, India B registered a convincing win over India A by 92 runs.

Here are some hilarious memes that have surfaced after Anuskha Sharma's performance:
