As the first Test of the Ashes began at the Gabba Cricket Ground, Brisbane, Twitterati around the globe were quick to grab the opportunity and come up with all sorts of funny stuff.

Australian selectors surprised everyone when they selected Tim Paine ahead of Matthew Wade and Peter Nevill as their wicket-keeper for the series. So trolling was but natural when Paine dropped James Vince at 68 of Nathan Lyon.

Nathan Lyon too was trolled for making those statements about ending careers of those representing England.

This when the game became a little boring with the Englishmen not allowing Aussie boys a chance to go past their defenses.

And then when the game came alive again with England losing a few wickets.
England have timed this stumble perfectly, just when all their fans back home are waking up. Extremely considerate of them really #Ashes

This because Pakistan can’t be left out!
When Aleem Dar gives you an appreciatively cheeky smile you know you've pulled off a freaky piece of fielding… #Ashes
