London, July 1: Pakistan cricket legends particularly Pacers have virtually accused Indian cricket team of losing intentionally to England.
A defeat for England at the hands of India could have enhanced the chances of Pakistan getting a spot on Semimis.
Former Pakistan fast bowler Waqar Younis alleged that India didn’t show sportsmanship. In a Tweet he said: 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.
A netizen Sarvesh who is a British Indian expressed grief over Indian loss and responded to Waqar’s Tweet by saying: I support India but I felt very let down by lack of fight, bowling full tosses in death overs by Shami who is an expert & such a slow start. It appeared strategic move to qualify to semis on run rate . Being a British Indian I am saddened by such poor display of cricket by.
Another Pakistani cricket legend Shoib Akhtar said: India could have played better. An aggressive approach in first 10 overs and then with 5 wickets in hand, they could have done wonders.
