As you would be well aware of the fact that the ICC Cricket World Cup is going on. And team India is currently on 2nd position on the Points Table. There is a lot of competition and excitement coming up for the Indian team.
Indian Team looses Against England in Birmingham
On Sunday, Indian Cricket Team was playing against England at Birmingham. It was the 7th match for the team and the first loose. You read it right, this was the first match that team India lost against England.
To our surprise, there were a lot of Pakistani fans supporting and cheering for India as well. It is quite strange, but there was a strong reason for them to support team India for a victory. Currently, Pakistan is on the 5th position on the points table with 9 points. In case, England wins, which it did, England now has 10 points and is at 4th position.
Pakistan’s fate in hands on Indian Team
After playing 8 matches, England and Pakistan are at 4th and 5th position, respectively. So, if India would have won against England, Pakistan would have greater chance of getting into the semi-finals. But as India lost, so did the hopes of Pakistan to get into semi-finals.
Right after the match, a former Pakistan caption tweeted about the poor sportsmanship of Indian team. He tweeted, “It’s not who you are. What you do in life defines who you are. Me not bothered if Pakistan gets to the semis or not but one thing is for sure. Sportsmanship of few Champions got tested and they failed badly #INDvsEND #CWC2019.”

Fans of Indian Team and it’s supporters did not take the tweet lightly. Entire tweeter slammed him for the words he wrote. It is not accepted out of a former team captain to post such comments about a team on an open platform like Twitter.
Here is one of the reverts the fan gave:
Team tumhari ganda khele tab bhi tum logo ne rona hota hai aur jab doosrei ki khele tab bhi , bloody classless people.! I wonder if there are free minded people exist in Pakistan .!??
