Pakistani supporters said that the Men in Blue are underperforming since a victory for South Africa could force Pakistan out of the World Cup.
After Aiden Markram was dropped by India’s top player Virat Kohli during the India vs. South Africa T20 World Cup 2022 Super 12 match in Perth, fans on social media were unable to control their emotions. Pakistani supporters claimed that the Men in Blue were underwhelming since a victory for South Africa could force Pakistan out of the World Cup. Aiden Markram, who was targeting the Indian bowling attack, misfired on one hit, and it was immediately caught by Virat Kohli, who is undoubtedly one of the best fielders in the world.
India ultimately suffered a loss thanks to a strong performance by the South Africa team. In the India vs. South Africa match, Aiden Markram and David Miller assisted the Proteas in chasing down the 134-run total when the Indian batting order faltered while batting first. On Sunday, South Africa defeated India in a T20 World Cup match by a margin of five wickets. After a batting collapse, Surya Kumar Yadav helped India to 133 for nine with a 40-ball 68.
Before these responses, Shoaib Akhtar sent a video to social media criticizing the Indians’ batting display and asserting that the Men in Blue are defeating Pakistan alongside them. He wrote “inhone Pakistan ko bhi marwa diya” in Urdu on the message.
In 19.4 overs, South Africa finished their chase. David Miller scored 59 runs, remaining un out, and Aiden Markram scored 52 runs. When India decided to bat, skipper Rohit Sharma was the first player to be bowled out. As a result, India continued to lose wickets often. Lungi Ngidi, who was promoted back to the team at Tabriz Shamsi’s expense, was the master wrecker as he destroyed the illustrious Indian top order with four wickets during a sharp fast bowling stint on a fast track.
(Surya Kumar Yadav 68; Lungi Ngidi 4/29; Wayne Parnell 3/15) India: 133/9 in 20 overs.
(Aiden Markram 52, David Miller 59 not out; Arshdeep Singh 2/25) South Africa: 137/5 in 19.4 overs.
