The Rest of India players were seen celebrating Mukesh Kumar's call-up in a hilarious manner with 'binod' meme that has gone crazy viral.
As BCCI announced the squad for India's ODI leg against South Africa, young Mukesh Kumar received his maiden call-up and the circumstances in which he got to know about the same, were utterly hilarious. Mukesh was on his team bus, with the Rest of India squad as they were going back to the hotel when the youngster was added to India's WhatsApp group.
The Bengal pacer's teammates made sure he would remember the moment for his life as they all joined in celebrating the achievement.
In a video that is going crazy viral, Sunrisers Hyderabad star Sarfaraz Khan can be heard using the viral 'dekh raha hai binod' meme to congratulate his teammate. Mukesh's fellow players then start chanting 'hip hip hurray' as they rejoiced in ecstasy.
