After the rain played a spoilsport on the first day of the 2nd Test at the iconic Lord's, English bowlers ensured the second day wasn't any sunny for the Indian cricket fans.
As the rain showers and cloudy conditions made the conditions perfect for swing bowling, James Anderson demolished the Indian lineup with 5/20 figures, reducing the visitors to a meager 107 on the scoreboard.
But even before the wickets began tumbling, and India were 11-2 during the lunch session, fans got the perfect opportunity to take a dig at the Indian cricketers after BCCI posted the lunch menu on its Twitter account.
"What's your pick from the team's menu for lunch today?" BCCI asked.
Swallowing no words, Twitter users knew exactly what they had to respond.
"English bowlers will have Indian batsmen for breakfast," read one response. "I was not hoping for this Menu Card Picture. I was hoping for a Good Score Card Picture where India put up a respected total losing few wickets and making English bowlers sweat," read another.

Was delicious food on the menu the actual reason?
No wonder the batsmen were in such a hurry to return back to the pavilion.— Vishwanath Malyekar (@vkmalayekar) August 10, 2018
MENU CARD: HIT— Utkarsh Tripathi (@theshrewdindian) August 10, 2018
SCORE CARD: FLOP
Oh! so that's the reason of our scorecard on Day 2— Pranjal (@Reveriessss) August 10, 2018
This, however, isn't the first time BCCI has been barraged with tweets. In fact, just last week, cricket fans wondered what Anushka Sharma was doing in a formal meet and greet of Team India at High Commission of India in London.
Now, we can only hope that Indians bounce back in the Test and have their lunch in peace.
