Social media is a place where memes circulate widely. And, if a person is a celebrity, then there are several memes that are generated on the person. Needless to say, cricketers are extremely popular in India, as cricket is treated like a religion in the country.

And, there is a meme that is doing the rounds, featuring Chennai Super Kings’ (CSK) players Suresh Raina and Sam Curran. In the meme, Raina is seen telling Sam Curran to study well after returning home and not to take a chocolate if a stranger offers him one.
