    Google sometimes matches a meta tag with a keyword.

    Google displays what it thinks is appropriate. Doesn’t have to use your title/description

    Firstly check the updated page has been indexed. Then make sure the title/description is relevant to the search query.

    Yeah it does. Google doesn't update your Meta Instantly, it takes time.

    Have your submitted your Sitemap on Search Console?

    That also matters a lot.

    The page has already been indexed. Submitting a sitemap isn't going to help.

    You should update your meta tags according to your content because of relevance matters in search engine optimization. You should use relevant keywords in Heading tags, meta tags, alt tags, and in the content to maintain keywords ranking on the search engine otherwise Google will fetch meta tags accordingly, and reflect on the search engines.

    Yes, but that hasn’t happened in this case. Google is not showing the title and description.

    Note also that meta description is not a ranking signal.
