Waqar Younis questions the Integrity of Team India; gets trolled

World Cup 2019: Waqar Younis questions the integrity of Team India during their match against England; gets brutally trolled.

Pakistani pace legend, Waqar Younis has taken to Social Media to indirectly express his disappointment after Team India’s loss to England at World Cup 2019.

As we all know, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh were all supporting Team India during the much-awaited clash between India vs England.

A defeat to Team India would have meant Sri Lanka would be out of the tournament, and both, Pakistan and Bangladesh would have a slim chance to qualify. 

However, Chasing 338, India fell short of the target by 31 runs as the duo, MS Dhoni and Kedar Jadhav could only manage 39 runs from the 71 runs that were needed required in the last five overs.

The intent of MS Dhoni and Kedar Jadhav in the last 5 overs surprised even the Indian legend, Sourav Ganguly.  

You can’t be chasing 338 and still have 5 wickets in the end. It’s about mindset and the way you look at the game. The message had to be clear: no matter where it comes and no matter where the ball lands you have to find the boundary – Sourav Ganguly

Anyway, whatever the outcome may be, we do not expect a player of Waqar Younis ‘s status to indirectly sham the Integrity and sportsmanship of Team India. It seems though, the frustration of Pakistan’s slim qualification chances got the better of him. 

A distinguished ambassador of the game, Waqar Younis has taken more than 800 wickets in his career. With such a huge image, and fan following, such tweets would only spark controversy. 

Social Media too didn’t seem pleased as they brutally trolled Waqar Younis for making such a statement.



Lots have been said about the way Dhoni and Jadhav batted in the back end of the innings. We feel its a mixture of two things, 

  • One is that they didn’t give their all for the win, and were heading towards minimizing the extent of the loss. Four boundaries in the final five overs seems too cautious for a team like India.
  • The other one being the sheer no-nonsense effort from England. The bowlers bowled their hearts out. They bowled tons of cutters and slower ones, keeping aside the ego to bounce out or terrorize batsmen with pace. The fielding placement was impeccable, and they used the ground dimensions to their advantage.
