Some fans were left fuming at yet another under-par showing from Rory Burns and made their feelings known by sharing memes on Twitter.
England has brushed aside in the opening Ashes Test in Brisbane with opener Rory Burns enduring a nightmare with the bat.
The left-handed opener was dismissed for a first-ball duck in the first innings and could manage just 13 in the second.
He would have hoped for a change in fortunes in the ongoing second Ashes Test in pink-ball Test but things have gone his way so far. Australia piled on the runs in their first innings, declaring at 473/9. England would have hoped for a good start from Burns and Haseeb Hameed but the left-hander was sent packing in the third over, scoring just four runs.
Burns dismissal only put more pressure on England and things went from bad to worse as Hameed too didn’t last too long and was dismissed for six with England reeling at 12 for two.
The threat of a lightning strike provided some respite to the English with stumps being called.
