Team India’s young all-rounder Hardik Pandya had reason to be unhappy when he was sold for a prayer by fellow batsman Ravindra Jadeja during the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 final at The Oval in London on Sunday (18th June).
It was Pandya, who fought like a warrior alone smashing 76 runs off just 43 balls. But all went in vain when Hardik too had to return back to pavilion in form of India’s seventh wicket.
Soon after Pandya was out and returned in super angry mode, a screengrab of a particular tweet claiming to be from Pandya’s official account went viral on social media. A user named Clive photoshopped a tweet and said that it was Hardik Pandya’s. His caption read, “Hardik Pandya tweeted this and then deleted it. I am dead.”
Here’s the image that the Twitter user shared!
The real truth behind the controversial tweet:
Hardik in his conversation with CricTracker revealed that it was a fake photoshopped tweet. Basically, Twitter user had used F12 i.e. a key which can be used to fetch developer tool in Google Chrome bar, which allows to edit the tweet and he used it to promote a fake tweet.
Here’s what Pandya actually posted on Twitter:
“#CT17 was an incredible journey for #TeamIndia. We gave it our best.
A complete team🇮🇳 effort. Thank you everyone for the messages & support.”
Meanwhile, Indian singer and film actress, Sophie Choudry, like many other fans too seemed unhappy the way Hardik was run-out after being involved in a horrible mix-up with Ravindra Jadeja.
As soon as Hardik was dismissed she commented:
“Ok that was Question: Is it wrong to say that when it’s obvious @hardikpandya7 is in form, #Jadeja should have sacrificed his wicket?”
She also lauded Hardik Pandya’s effort for giving Indian fans something to cheer in the India vs Pakistan final match.
“Woohoo @hardikpandya7 .. Thanku for giving #india something to cheer about #indvpak #CT2017Final #teamindia”, Sophie wrote.
