Much to the disappointment of cricket fans and enthusiasts, Team India was outclassed by New Zealand by their eight-wicket win at ICC T20 World Cup Super-12 match on Sunday, October 31. Team India was thumped by arch-rivals, Pakistan by 10 wickets win at the opening match held on October 24. By losing both the matches, the Indian Cricket Team’s entry for a spot in the semi-final of the T20 World Cup 2021 now depends on the performances of other teams in their groups.
Pakistan Cricket Team’s win over India has led to the eruption of several controversies where Indian pacer Mohammed Shami was subjected to online trolling and his credibility as a fast bowler being questioned and a few of the trolls asking him to go to Pakistan. Now with the second defeat, Team India is being subjected to online trolling and adding to the league, #BanIPL is trending on Twitter with over 66K Tweets. The Twitteratis are calling out the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and their decision to prioritize the Indian Premier League over international matches. The netizens further alleged that IPL and the commercialization by BCCI has been one of the major reasons that lead to the burnout of the Men in Blue.
