#UnfriendshipDay was trending on Twitter on Thursday following an advertisement on the sports channel featuring Indian one-day cricket team vice-captain Rohit Sharma and West Indian captain Kieron Pollard, as the two play for the same team in the Indian cricket league.
On Thursday morning, StarSports launched an advertisement on Twitter in which the two top-class cricketers exchange tweets.
In the ad, which has tickled the funny bone of cricket fans, the West Indian cricketer comes to India and is received by the Indian vice-captain Rohit Sharma at the airport. The two get into a car and enjoy music on the radio while heading to somewhere.
As the song stops, Pollard claims that it is going to be fun defeating India in India. Rohit Sharma then fakes a break down of his car and Pollard offers to help. As he gets out of the car, Sharma abandons him on the road along with his luggage.
Netizens found it hilarious and flooded the internet with more than 4,000 tweets with #UnFriendshipday.
