Twitter goes wild as Day 1 of the second Ashes 2019 Test was called off due to rain.
Day 1 of the second Ashes Test, 2019 saw a dull end as the play was abandoned, and the highly anticipated Jofra Archer’s debut got delayed by a day, courtesy rain.
The 24-year-old pacer, Archer received his Test Cap from another England international and friend, Chris Jordan.
Ever since the super over he bowled during the World Cup finale, Jofra Archer’s test debut seemed a lot closer. However, the first Ashes Test of 2019 saw England rely on the tried and tested trio of Broad, Woakes and Jimmy Anderson.
With ace pacer, James Anderson suffering from injury, Archer has a golden chance to prove his credentials in Test matches. Can Jofra Archer stop Steve Smith from creating batting havoc once again?.
Netizens had a field day as tweets poured in making fun of the rain-marred day. Rain and Cricket seldom go well together. However, Twitter is filled with hilarious content revolving around the rain and Ashes 2019.
Let us take a look at a few funny twitter reactions.

Twitter seems to have taken a proper dig at the rain surrounding the Ashes 2019. We wish the rain gods show some mercy on us as enthralling days of cricket are in store for us.
If weather predictions are to be believed, we might get the whole of 4 days action to witness. But, England’s weather is unpredictable at its best. We hope to see action get underway as soon as possible.
Will Steve Smith carry Australia towards another win or will Archer inspire a comeback? Let’s wait and watch.
