IND vs PAK: In the exciting world of cricket, where rivalries abound, none are as monumental as the one between India and Pakistan. Cricket fans all across the globe were stunned by the recent matchup at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, which took place during the ICC Cricket World Cup. While Indian supporters celebrated their team’s win, Pakistan’s coach Mickey Arthur had some harsh things to say about the match.
IND vs PAK: Pakistan’s Coach Mickey Arthur Made Cheap Comments Against The BCCI
Mickey Arthur, the head coach of the Pakistan cricket team, was not shy in voicing his displeasure with the way the ICC World Cup match between India and Pakistan was run. He spoke out strongly against the songs that were played during this high-stakes match. “It didn’t seem like an ICC event, it was more like a bilateral series, a BCCI event! I didn’t hear ‘Dil, Dil Pakistan‘ (song) played,” he would say after the game.
The vibe at Narendra Modi Stadium is an essential part of any analysis of the India vs. Pakistan game. Over 130,000 people could fit inside the stadium, and all you saw was people wearing blue jerseys. Most, though, were die-hard Indian fans who made things uncomfortable for the visiting Pakistani squad.
The atmosphere was exacerbated by the fact that Pakistani supporters and journalists were not there since they were waiting for their Indian visas. The disparity in support was obvious since it had been years since Pakistan had the chance to play in Indian conditions.
The Indian cricket team flaunted their skills and made their intentions known from the first ball they bowled. Expecting a competitive match, India ended up winning by seven wickets over their bitter rivals Pakistan.
The Indian captain, Rohit Sharma, was the game’s clear MVP. India reached their goal of 192 runs with an incredible 19.3 overs to spare thanks to his magnificent 63-ball 86. Rohit Sharma’s commanding performance on the field and the clinical bowling of Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj ensured victory.
Amazing strokes from Rohit Sharma had the crowd in awe. Rohit’s skill shone through with shots like a pull shot behind square off Shaheen Shah Afridi and a square-driven six off Haris Rauf.
India’s eighth win in the 50-over global tournament, where Pakistan has failed to compete with its neighbour in terms of talent, strategy, and execution since 1992, was secured by this triumph. India’s superiority was on full display, as was the team’s capacity to perform well under pressure.
As Indian fans, this was our home game. So, we have to make the atmosphere in the stadium hell for the opposition team and that too for an arch-rival. We are not going to bring Pakistani support and cheer for Pakistani success. Secondly, until and unless Pakistan stops cross-border terrorism and killing our soldiers on the border, it is absolutely right decision to not give any favour regarding visas to the Pakistanis.
