Another day, another washed out World Cup game.

This time, the disappointment among cricket fans reached its peak as India became the latest victims of rain gods in Nottingham at Trent Bridge on Thursday.

After Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka joining West Indies v South Africa and Sri Lanka vs Pakistan in the match abandoned club, India and New Zealand became the fourth team to share a point each and all the anxious eyes quickly shifted to the "ultimate" World Cup battle - India Vs Pakistan on Sunday (June 16).

But the wet outfield and incessant rains on Thursday didn't dampen the spirits of cricket fans in India. While desis stayed back at the stadium to lend their support for the Men in Blue until the match was actually called off, social media took cover under memes and some much-needed humour.

In fact, keeping up with their good ol' traditions, IPL teams of Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore engaged in a fun tic-tac-toe battle to kill time as dark clouds played hide and seek with the hopes and emotions of millions of Indians.

"@RCBTweets, it’s raining. You know what we mean?" tweeted Rajasthan Royals' official Twitter account.

While the match on field refused to start, another was taking place on Twitter.

Unfortunately, here too, fans had to settle for a tie.

At least, not all were disappointed.

If you're wondering, social media accounts of IPL teams have been actively cheering for their players participating in the World Cup tournament in England.

Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore had previously battled it out on Twitter when an IPL match between the two teams was reduced to a 5-over match due to rain and subsequently called off after heavy downpours continued.
