World Cup 2019 Social Pavilion: From MS Dhoni setting field while batting to Virat Kohli using cuss words, last day of warm-up games had it all

We are just hours away from the start of the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup. The last set of warm-up games, India-Bangladesh and New Zealand-West Indies matches, took place on 28 May, Tuesday. The action-packed last day of warm-up matches created a lot of buzz on the social media, so has the anticipation and excitement of a World Cup.

We take a look at the incidents from the warm-up games and other World Cup related conversations that made it big on social media on the day.

With the World Cup set to get underway on 30 May, UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office decided to tell us why cricket "brings people and countries together."

Meanwhile, stand-up comedian Hasan Minhaj dropped his latest episode of Patriot Act which talks about corruption in cricket.

And rightly so, the episode also had Lalit Modi. Because, why not?

However, the biggest highlight of the day had to be Chahal TV making a comeback.

Until...a certain MS Dhoni came on to bat and in the 39th over against Bangladesh something unusual happened. Dhoni and KL Rahul were in their zone and Mashrafe Mortaza's men were finding it difficult to contain them. At which, Dhoni took matter into his own hands. And decided to set field for himself.

Some even asked for change in rules when MSD is on crease.

MS Dhoni eventually got to his hundred a few overs later and guess who seemed the happiest. We bet you can't decipher what the skipper is trying to say.

PS: No subtitles available for the below video.

Also, Rahul scored a century thereby making a strong claim for the number 4 spot. He later took to Twitter to thank everyone for their congratulatory messages.

Some of the legends were mighty impressed too.

In Bristol, the Windies wreaked havoc in their match against New Zealand. Shai Hope, Jason Holder and Andre Russell made merry as they posted a mammoth 421.

West Indies might just be in line for a few upsets and make it to the semi-finals.

Andre Russell's blistering 50 reminded some of the IPL.

Join us tomorrow in the social pavilion as we bring you everything about #CWC19 as the tournament gets underway.
