India faced a rather humiliating defeat against their arch-rival Pakistan in the finals of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017, and since yesterday, all people can talk about, is the match. India lost by 180 runs after a spectacular performance by Pakistan. Well, India-Pakistan matches are always full of energy – whether it is the players or the fans. And after the match, there was a lot of sloganeering at The Oval where some Pakistani fans went to the extent of mocking Indian players including Virat Kohli.
A video has surfaced on social media in which a Pakistani fan can be heard mocking the Indian players, using some objectionable language.
While the players crossed the crowd, he shouted at Kohli, ‘Toot gayi teri akkad’. He further mocked other players as well, saying, ‘baap kaun hai’. And while all the other players chose to quietly go, Mohammed Shami was in no mood to let go. Shami, who only played in the warm-up matches of the series, took serious offence and confronted the Pakistani fan. He angrily told him to repeat what he said.
But before things could go out of hand, MS Dhoni, who is known to be a calm and composed player, came and took Shami away. Here’s the video –
