Indians still pinned their hopes on Afghanistan bettering Pakistan

Indian cricket fans were very disappointed after Team India suffered back-to-back losses in the Super 4 stage of the 2022 Asia Cup. First, India lost to their arch-rivals Pakistan by 5 wickets, then Rohit Sharma’s team was undone by Sri Lanka who won the contest by 6 wickets. Virtually out of the race for the Asia Cup final, Indians still pinned their hopes on Afghanistan bettering Pakistan on Wednesday.

Pakistan’s win killed two birds with a stone

Pakistan sneaked in a special victory when Naseem Shah smoked two consecutive sixes in the last over when they needed 11. Pakistan had only one wicket left while chasing Afghanistan’s modest 130. Pakistan’s win killed two birds with a stone, India and Afghanistan faced instant exit. After losing the second time on the Super 4 Stage, Indian fans weren’t happy at all. The Indian fans raged on the Indian players and blamed IPL responsible for the poor performances. The T20 world cup is also approaching and fans want the rich-cash IPL league to be banned in the country. Some users tweeted and said, “Boycotting IPL would be a great lesson for these greedy players.” While one of them said, “It was a completely useless start for this useless team, players running for the money.”
