Twitter Slams Indian Team for “Deliberately” Losing to England

England’s win over India on Sunday has sparked plenty of debate whether or not Kohli’s men tried their best on the field.

The lack of intent during the chase, right from the start, has raised plenty of eyebrows. It’s not just the cricket fans and commentators who looked frustrated. Non-cricketing viewers expressed their displeasure over the dismal show of sportsmanship as well.

From Rohit Sharma to Virat Kohli, and specially MS Dhoni, none of the Indian batsmen looked like the players that they really are. The number one ranked team, known for finishing games off in style, hit their first six of the innings in the last over.

While England may have bowled well, there were plenty of opportunities for the set Indian batsmen to target bowlers like Adil Rashid, Ben Stokes, and even others. However, it was not to meant be, as a win for India might have seen Pakistan storm into the semi-finals (provided they win against Bangladesh).

Pakistani Twitter is swarming with messages of match-fixing. Hashtags #fixed and #MatchFixing are trending on Twitter. Let’s have a look at what people are saying about India’s alleged deliberate defeat at the hands of the Englishmen.

The words of the most credible cricketing website:

The commentators expressing their concerns.

Neutral watchers also mad at India.

They but hurt their own reputation.

The fans are calling for ICC to investigate the issue.

This is gold.

And, Pakistanis have pinned their hopes on New Zealand.

If Pakistan wins against Bangladesh and New Zealand beats England, Sarfaraz XI can still make it to top 4. What are your views? Let us know in the comments.

  • #Fixed Match THA :
    India Jaan Bojh K Wrost Bowling / Batting & Review Nahi Liya :
    Ta K Pakistan Qualify Na Kar Sake Semi Final Main :

    RIP Indian Methodology

  • Mein janta tha k England ko apne home ground pe harana har kisi k bas ki baat nhn
    Situation ab mazedar ho gayi hai
    Eng NZ dono 8 matches khel chuka hai jo jeeta wo Semifinal mein
    Pak Bangladesh ko agar ache NRR se harata hai to semifinal mein
    Aur agar India agle dono match haara to ghar jaye ga
    Phir semifinals honge
    K beech mein

  • Bhaii match fix ho ya na ho, wo ap ko dushman mantay hain to bhala kiyun ap ko semi final mein pohonchny ki opportunity day? main to credit dunga india ko unki gherat ka, wo dushman samajhty hain to gherat bhi karty hain, hamari tarha dushman say tawaqqah nahi rakhtay! Hamari team ny West Indies ky khilaf buri kharkardigi dikha kay apna berrha khud gharq kia hai.

  • Best option is to kick out india from the semis. ICC should put ban on indian terrorists.

  • What country have we become? Our team did not perform well initially hence we are in this mess. When it comes to other team losing, who cares? The way we lost to West Indies should also be seen with the same lens. We blame everyone else for our mess than ourselves. Not only cricket, but this is how our country is also run.

  • We have only ourselves to blame for losing against West Indies. That match and rain in SL match cost us qualification.

  • Indian terrorist clown should be banned in all over the world. PAK Govt. should work to put ban in indian clowns in all mediums, SAARC, OIC, FATF etc all should ban indian terrorist clowns. All Gulf countries should kick out indian terrorist from their respective countries. I request to PAK Govt. to ban indian embassy.

    • Pakistan is declared terrorist country… it is a place where countries ask their citizens to never visit ???
