In this match, the Indian bowlers made a tremendous comeback and won the match. But it was also said that India had fixed the match. Talking about this, former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar expressed his opinion in a video.
What did Shoaib Akhtar say?
India secured the final ticket by winning the match against Sri Lanka but also opened the way for Pakistan to reach the final. But when the India-Sri Lanka match started, the way the Indian batsmen were out, it was said on social media that they were playing like this to get Pakistan out. Akhtar said that the allegation was false.
watch the video-
I don't understand why you are doing this. I got memes and messages that India has fixed the match. It is said that he played like this deliberately to eliminate the Pakistan team from the tournament. But you must have seen how he batted against 20-year-old Vella of Sri Lanka. But many people called me and said that India would lose the match deliberately.
Why will the Indian team lose, Do they not want to go to the finals? Why are you making memes without any reason? Kuldeep Yadav bowled dangerously. Shoaib Akhtar said that Jaspri Bumrah also made a great start.
On the other hand, the innings of the Indian team, which batted first in the India-Sri Lanka match, ended at 213 runs. Vellaj started the batting of the Indian team by taking 5 wickets. After this, India's fast bowlers made a strong comeback. Sri Lankan batsmen could not stand in front of Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldeep.
