Former India allrounder Irfan Pathan has slammed the Pakistanis who ridiculed the Uday Saharan-led India for his or her loss by the hands of Australia within the last of the ICC Males’s U19 World Cup 2024. Irfan took to the social media platform ‘X’ (previously Twitter) to hit again on the “keyboard warriors from throughout the border” who discovered pleasure in India’s heartbreaking loss within the summit conflict of the event.
“Regardless of their U19 staff not making it to the ultimate, keyboard warriors from throughout the border discover pleasure in our children’ defeat. This unfavourable angle displays poorly on their nation’s mindset. #padosi,” Irfan wrote on X.
Irfan’s response got here after quite a few Pakistanis derided the Indian males’s U19 cricket staff after it fell inches wanting claiming a record-sixth U19 Males’s World Cup title. Whereas some Pakistanis took to X to remind India of the crushing defeat they suffered by the hands of the Aussies within the last of the ODI World Cup 2023, a number of others merely sought pleasure from India’s loss at Willowmoore Park in Benoni.
Notably, each India and Australia entered the ultimate of the ICC U19 Males’s Cricket World Cup 2024 with undefeated streaks and the ultimate on Sunday (February 11) noticed Australia prevail.
The Aussie captain Hugh Weibgen was lucky with the toss and elected to bat first considering that runs on the board in a knock-out conflict may develop into the distinction. Key knocks by Harry Dixon (42 off 56 balls), Weibgen (48 off 66 balls), Harjas Singh (55 off 64 balls) and Ollie Peake (46* off 43 balls) propelled Australia to 253 for the lack of seven wickets – the best whole in a U19 World Cup last.
In reply, India’s batting order crumbled underneath stress and the defending champions folded for 174 in 43.5 overs.
