The Delhi Police proved they’re not just masters of law and order, but also social media savants, after their hilarious post following India’s T20 World Cup victory over Australia went viral on X (formerly Twitter).

A win with a wink

India’s dominant 24-run win wasn’t just a ticket to the semifinals, it was a chance for redemption after their narrow defeat in the 2023 ODI World Cup final against the same opponents. The Delhi Police social media team perfectly captured this sentiment with their witty post.

Their message playfully twisted the term “hit-and-run,” a traffic violation, into a celebration of India’s high-scoring performance. The post read: “This Just In: In a ‘hits-and-runs’ incident in Caribbean, 11 Indian men have ‘stolen’ over a billion hearts. Initial investigation points out the revenge of 19/11 as the motive.”

The “19/11” cleverly references the date of the 2023 ODI World Cup final loss, hinting at India’s underlying desire for revenge. This clever wordplay resonated with fans, sparking laughter and applause across the platform.

Match recap: A display of batting and bowling prowess

India’s batting lineup set the tone with a massive total of 205/5. Skipper Rohit Sharma showcased his brilliance with a blazing 92 off just 41 deliveries. The bowlers, led by Arshdeep Singh (3 wickets) and Kuldeep Yadav (2 wickets), didn’t disappoint, restricting a strong Australian batting line-up to 181/7.

Travis Head (76 off 43) once again gave shock waves in the Indian camp, but after Jasprit Bumrah sent his back to the pavilion, the Aussies struggled for runs.

Eyes on the prize: A rematch and a dream

This victory secured India’s place in the semifinals, where they will face England in a rematch of the 2022 T20 World Cup semifinal. With their sights set on the coveted T20 World Cup trophy, India’s performance against Australia has undoubtedly boosted their morale and confidence.
