After India’s defeat to arch-rival Pakistan in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, India pacer Mohammed Shami has been exposed to internet abuse.
Fans took to Instagram and Twitter after India’s loss against Pakistan on Sunday to make disparaging remarks about Mohammed Shami.
Pakistan beat India by ten wickets, and none of the Indian bowlers were able to make an impression, as Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan ripped the Indian bowling apart.
Virat Kohli, India’s captain, witnessed some rowdy crowd behaviour, and the trolls have not been nice to him, as he has been chastised for his captaincy throughout the game.
In T20 World Cup Pakistan trounced India by 10 wickets at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Sunday, led by Mohammad Rizwan and skipper Babar Azam.
Rizwan (79*) and Babar (68*) ensured that India’s bowlers had little chance of winning the match as the two batsmen controlled the proceedings. In their first encounter, India appeared bewildered as Pakistan knocked down a total of 152 without losing a wicket.
“We didn’t do a good job of executing. It’s important to give credit where credit is due, and Pakistan outplayed us today. They got off to a great start with the bowling, taking three wickets for 20 runs. We needed wickets early on, but they gave us no chances with the bat “After the game, Kohli told host channel Star Sports.
“It played slow in the first half and hitting through the line was not that easy as it was in the second half, after 10 overs. We needed those 15-20 extra runs and for that, we needed a good start but Pakistan’s bowling didn’t allow us to get those extra runs,” he added.
This is the first time India has been defeated by ten wickets in a T20I. Pakistan has also won a T20I by ten wickets for the first time in their history.
India will next square off against New Zealand on Sunday, October 31 while Pakistan will take on New Zealand on Tuesday, October 26.
