India vs England 2nd Test day 4 Lord’s: The lunch for cricketers at Lord’s received flak after it featured beef on the menu on Day 3 of the ongoing 2nd Test.
It seems there is no stopping the trolls as they also took to Twitter after Lord’s Cricket Ground posted a picture of the lunch that was served to players on Day 4.
The beef was not there, but fans started asking various questions, from why ‘no duck’ is served after Vijay bagged a pair.
Here are some of the most hilarious tweets.
“Duck surprise” “But there’s no duck?” “That’s the surprise”

No wonder our guys are not playing well. They are bound to overeat with this menu, then how do you expect them to play well

Could I have two desserts instead of the soup?

Unfortunately, coriander makes everything taste of soap to me (genetics), so I’d have to forego the soup. Given that it’s Sunday, I’d have to go for the roast lamb.

As we speak, the play has resumed on Day 4 after a halt for an hour due to drizzle. India is reeling at 26/2. Anderson has picked up both the wickets of the Indian openers.
Earlier, after Day 1 was washed off, England won the toss on Day 2 and put the visiting team into bat. India was bowled out for a paltry 107. India captain Virat Kohli was out for 23, whereas Ashwin top-scored with 29 runs. James Anderson was the pick of the English bowlers, he picked up five wickets to rattle India.
The visitors dominated the first session of the day on Saturday, reducing England to 89/4 and then 131/5, but Chris Woakes (120*) and Jonny Bairstow (93) took it away from the visitors, putting on a 189-run stand to help England head into stumps with a lead of 250.
