T20 World Cup 2022: Indians Troll Shahid Afridi After He Accuses ICC Of Biasing Toward India


Former Pakistan captain and a controversial figure, Shahid Afridi has commented that the ICC has a bias toward the Indian cricket team and that the governing council “want to ensure” the Men In Blue reached the semi-finals of the ongoing T20 World Cup 2022 “at any cost”.

This remark from the former all-rounder came after the India-Bangladesh game which was intervened by rain and had a controversial decision being made by the umpire to resume the match despite Shakib Al Hasan, the Bangladeshi captain, animatedly expressing that he was unhappy with the umpire’s decision. Afridi also accused the umpires in the India-Bangladesh encounter of making decisions in favor of India.

Chasing 185 against India, Litton Das fired Bangladesh to 66/0 in 7 overs with his 21-ball half-century before rain paused the game. At that point, Bangladesh was 17 runs ahead of DLS India.

After a rain break of almost an hour, the play resumed, but Shakib was clearly unhappy when the umpires told him that the match is going to be resumed because of wet conditions.

This is something that the Bangladeshi fans - and the Pakistani fans too - have been talking since because Pakistan’s qualification for the semi-finals also would have gotten stronger with a Bangladesh victory over India.

Shahid Afridi alleged ICC and umpires of biasing with India

“You saw the ground how wet it was. But ICC is inclined toward India. They want to ensure India reaches the semi-finals at any cost. The umpires were also the same who officiated India vs Pakistan & will get the best umpire awards,” said Shahid Afridi to SAMAA TV.

Being a former Pakistani captain, Shahid Afridi’s comments saying that ICC and the umpires favored with Team India are despicable and in poor taste.

Afridi was unsurprisingly trolled by Indian fans for his comments:


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


Even Shakib later admitted that the wet conditions helped the batting team, but well, Shahid Afridi is free to think and assume what he wants. Unfortunately, the millions of Pakistani cricket fans are also being influenced by his comments.
