Surely every one of us have tried bowling and always kept our fingers crossed for that ultimate strike.
Recently social media users were pleasantly surprised when they saw a video of a granny in a saree bowling a strike.
The video was uploaded on Sudarshan Krishnamurthy‘s Twitter and shows his grandmother hitting a strike, before turning around and fixing her face mask and giggling over her achievement.
“Hi Twitter, please appreciate my grandma bowling a strike in her saree, and then proceeding to ensure her mask covers her nose,” the user wrote along with the video.
Social media was since flooded with responses to the viral video.

“What I love is her expression after, with palm upturned questioningly, as if asking ‘what’s the big deal that you young’uns are making of it’?” one user tweeted. “Hope this sets off a trend of grandmas crowding bowling alleys. Can’t think of a better “New India” look! Plus it’s a family activity,” he added.
“Why are we even surprised?! They have never ever missed their aim when it comes to throw objects, be it chappals or balls!” another user joked.
There were, of course, a multitude of memes and GIFs as well.
