Meg Lanning Does Iconic SRK Pose for WPL Video
The Women's Premier League is in full swing, and Delhi Capitals are turning up the heat on their opponents. The team has been on fire, winning four out of six games and booking their place in the playoffs. And what better way to celebrate their success than with a dance party?
In a video shared on social media, the Delhi Capitals players could be seen grooving to a popular Bollywood song, with the lyrics "woh ladki jo sabse alag hai" (the girl that is different from all). And boy, did they own it! From seasoned veterans to fresh-faced rookies, everyone was shaking a leg and having a blast.
Meg Lanning's Pose
But it was skipper Meg Lanning who stole the show. After leading her team in the dance, she struck the iconic Shah Rukh Khan pose, stretching both her arms in the air. And if that wasn't enough to make you smile, Jemimah Rodrigues' tweet certainly will. "Meg loves the SRK pose!!" she wrote, and we couldn't agree more.
Let's not forget the reason why the Delhi Capitals are dancing in the first place. They've earned their place in the playoffs through hard work, dedication, and some impressive performances on the field.
Response to Video
Many Twitter users praised the Delhi Capitals team, with one individual describing it as a "family" that loves and supports one another. Another Twitter user commended Lanning's impressive dance moves, while another was particularly impressed with her SRK pose.
Jemimah Rodrigues also got her share of compliments for her fun-loving and entertaining nature. The player is known for being a livewire on the field, and she has brought her unique brand of energy to the Delhi Capitals team.

Before this match, they lost a game to the Gujarat Giants, but that doesn't take away from their overall success this season.
Ashleigh Gardner was the hero of the night, scoring 51 off 33 balls and taking two wickets under pressure to secure a hard-fought victory for the Giants. But the Delhi Capitals have proven time and time again that they're a force to be reckoned with.
