Fans Abuse Mohammed Shami, After India Lost Against Pakistan In T20 World Cup

Fans took to Instagram and Twitter to question the Indian player's integrity due to his Muslim identity

Mumbai: After the Men in Blue suffered a defeat against arch-rival Pakistan in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, India pacer Mohammed Shami is being subjected to online abuse.

Shami, who bowled the 18th over of the match, conceded 17 runs in five balls was accused of accepting money from the rival team to lose the match.

Fans took to Instagram and Twitter to question the Indian player’s integrity due to his Muslim identity and passed derogatory statements on Mohammed Shami.

Pakistan defeated India by ten wickets and none of the Men in Blue bowlers were able to leave an impact as Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan took the bowling to the cleaners.

Indian skipper Virat Kohli also saw some unruly fan behaviour and the trolls have also not been kind to him, as he is also being criticised for his captaincy during the game.

Mohammad Rizwan and skipper Babar Azam put on a remarkable show on Sunday as Pakistan thrashed India by 10 wickets at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

Virat Kohli (57) and Rishabh Pant (39) helped India post 151/7 in 20 overs. The pair led the recovery for the team after Pakistan reduced them to 36/3 in the powerplay.

Rizwan (79*) and Babar (68*) didn’t give any chance to India bowlers to come on top as the two batters dominated the proceedings.

“We didn’t execute properly. Credit where it’s due and Pakistan outplayed us today. They started brilliantly with the ball, and 3 wickets for 20 runs was not a good start. We needed wickets early but with the bat, they gave us absolutely no chances,” Kohli told host broadcaster Star Sports after the game ended.

“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.

Pakistan made two records after a historical win against India last night. This was the first time Pakistan defeated the Indian squad in a world cup match. Coincidentally, the first time that Pakistan has won a T201 by ten wickets.

This is also the first time that India has lost a T201 by ten wickets.

India will next square off against New Zealand on Sunday, October 31, while Pakistan will take on New Zealand on October 26 Tuesday.
