Indian cricket team did not have the greatest start of the 5-match Test series against England as they couldn’t make it at the end in the opening Test at Edgbaston, Birmingham. The visitors were defeated by 31 runs short of the target as the hosts dismantled the Indian batsmen in a thrilling manner.
Conceding the first Test, team India would like to get their head back into the Test series as both the teams reached London for the second Test at Lord’s.
Ahead of the second Test which starts on Thursday, head coach Ravi Shastri and the Indian team was seen probing about the pitch and hitting the nets to sweat it out. This made the Indian coach hit the news again. As he is a former Indian cricketer and current head coach, he is expected to have a good physique but a photo of Shastri is going viral in which his pot belly can be seen clearly.
However, Twitterati couldn’t get enough of Shastri’s pot belly and started making fun of his photo. People started calling him pregnant and made a guess as to when he would deliver. Check out a few hilarious Twitter reactions below.

The first Test between India and England have seen a lot of ups and downs for both the teams. The Indian batsmen (except Virat Kohli) couldn’t make it with their willows and it was the first thing that let them down. Among the bowlers, Ravichandran Ashwin and Ishant Sharma stood apart with their bowling performances.
