Like many other cricket fans, former Indian Test opener Aakash Chopra was surprised to see that Team India lost to West Indies in the 4th ODI of a 5 match series.
West Indies put up a low score of 189 runs in their 50 overs but Indian batsmen managed to score only 178, therefore losing by 11 runs. Seeing the result in the morning, Aakash took to his Twitter handle and commented that he had to pinch himself after reading the scoreboard.
“Woke up to realise that India lost to WI. Pinched myself. So, India’s last three ODI losses are to teams ranked 9th (WI), 8th & 7th.”
If you don’t know, let us inform you that West Indies is the 9th ranked team in ODI rankings, Pakistan is 8th and Sri Lanka is 7th. Taking about the Indian team, it is presently at the 3rd rank in the ODI rankings.
After Aakash posted his comment, a Pakistan cricket fan tried to troll him and Team India. He wrote, “Gharr k shair team India.”
To which Akash tweeted, “Aap toh rehne do please…aapka toh apne hi ghar mein ghusna mana hai”
Another Pakistani user joined the war of words and wrote, “Ham dusron k Ghar m ghus k Marty hn janab.Geedron ko apnay Ghar nh ghusnay dete. Shikast ki adat dal,lo ab.”
But, this time Akash nailed it and gave the Twitterati a mouth-shutting reply.
He tweeted, “I agree…aapke bahut log India mein ghus rahen hain. Roz encounters ki khabar aati hai. By the way, why isn’t Pak playing cricket at home?”
