Team India registered a historic win against Australia in the Test cricket series by clinching 2-1 victory on Tuesday. India chased down 328 in the final Test to end Australia's 32-year unbeaten run at the Gabba, Brisbane. The team has been lauded for winning the match in a nail-biting contest and messages poured in for the men in blue.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BCCI President Sourav Ganguly and Secertary Jay Shah were among the first ones to congratulate the team. For cricket fans on Twitter it was a moment of celebration and jubilation and cricket started trending on the social media platform soon.
But not everyone is fond of cricket and do not necessarily share the emotions. For such people, cricket Twitter's celebratory mode is bit too much to handle. While the country united to celebrate for team India, the non-fans of cricket seemed to be looking for that quite corner as the world around them erupted in elation over the victory. Some are even looking for a mute button to silence the cricket Twitter, well, because it is too much to handle.
Take a look at the tweets:

My Twitter account is full of obsessive cricket fans (nuts) analysing every ball and stroke of the #AUSvsIND test match. Thinking of muting all of them for a day or two. (I don't frankly care about the game)— Sidharth Bhatia (@bombaywallah) January 19, 2021
cricket twitter and football twitter scare the shit out of me— Suzanne️ (@stfusuzanne) January 19, 2021
Just wondering why the all powerful AI of Twitter keeps suggesting for me the topics "cricket" and "sport" when I have literally zero interest in both of them...@Twitter ?— drmarcosacchi (@drmarcosacchi) January 19, 2021
Aaj pura Twitter hi Cricket numa ho gya — Ravi Kumar (@whoravikumar) January 19, 2021
The three-wicket win at the Gabba on the final day meant that India have won an unprecedented back-to-back Test series victory Down Under. Australia captain Tim Paine graciously admitted that they were outplayed by the Indians.
"We were here to win the series, but we have just been outplayed by a disciplined and tough Indian side who fully deserve the series win. We have to look back over a lot of things, and we'll go through it as a group.
