ICC’s photo of Ravi Shastri in Titanic pose triggers meme fest on social media


The ICC on Sunday posted a photo of Ravi Shastri on Twitter with the Indian cricket team’s head coach seen in the famous Titanic pose. While posting Shastri’s photo, the ICC wrote, “Caption this.”

No sooner did the ICC share the photo, it led to an unstoppable meme fest with Twitterati editing the original photo to create hilarious poses of Shastri. While some juxtaposed it with a photo of Leonardo Di Caprio, the lead protagonist of Titanic, others placed photos of alcohol and glass on his hands. Shastri has had to face considerable criticism for his alleged liking for alcohol in the past.

Here’s how Twitterati responded to ICC’s tweet.

Last month, the Indian cricket board had to face considerable trolling after it posted a tweet with a photo of Shastri and Rahul Dravid, calling them ‘two greats.’ The BCCI’s decision to place Shastri in the same league as Dravid had left Twitterati incensed.

The BCCI had appointed Ravi Shastri as the head coach of the Indian cricket team until the ICC World T20 Cup in 2021.
