After India's loss to England in the T20 World Cup semi final match at Adelaide Oval, popular Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Akhtar lambasted at Indian cricket team.
Like many fans, Shoaib was looking forward to a potential Indo-Pak final. After the disastrous defeat of team India, Shoaib posted a video on social media criticising the Indian team.
Taking to Twitter, Shoaib posted a video and captioned, “Embarrassing loss for India. Bowling badly exposed. No meet up in Melbourne unfortunately.”
Akhtar said, “Pakistan were looking forward to facing India in the summit clash but that won’t be possible anymore.”

“It’s a very embarrassing loss for India. They played terribly and they deserved to lose. They didn’t deserve to qualify for the finals. India were beaten very badly. Their bowling was exposed very badly. These conditions are helpful for fast bowling and India don’t have an express pacer. I don’t understand why they didn’t play Yuzvendra Chahal in a single match. The team selection for India is confusing,” he said.
Besides, he attributed lack of aggression to the defeat of India. Before signing off, he said, “Hardik Pandya is an emerging captain for New Zealand and he has a chance of being permanent.”
Apart from Shoaib, Pakistan Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif took a cheeky dig at India men’s cricket team after they suffered a crushing 10-wicket loss to England on Thursday.
