BCCI’s announcement that Parthiv Patel will replace Wriddhiman Saha as India's wicket-keeper for the third Test against England at Mohali, starting November 26, left Twitter in a frenzy with hilarious comments making its way on to the social media platform.

Patel's last Test appearance for India was against Sri Lanka in 2008. In fact, the left-hander hasn't played any international cricket since his T20I outing against England in 2011.

Parthiv, 31, made his Test debut against England as a 17-year-old during the 2002 tour and last played against Sri Lanka at Colombo in August, 2008.
