India defeated Afghanistan by 66 runs in their third match of the T20 World Cup. This was the first win in the tournament for Team India, which suffered crushing defeats against Pakistan and New Zealand. With this win, there is little hope of the Virat Brigade reaching the semi-finals.
After India’s Victory, Pakistan Got Chilly
The performance of Afghanistan’s bowlers in the match against India was very disappointing. As a result, India made the biggest score of this T20 World Cup, while the Afghanistan batsmen could not do anything special. This victory of India did not go down well with the supporters of ‘arch rival’ Pakistan, and strange comments started pouring in.

It is so sad to see a country that fought with so much vigour and passion throughout the tournament to sell out to the bigger team and let them win at the highest stage of cricket. Sad to see India ruin the beauty of the gentleman’s sport.#fixed #shame pic.twitter.com/HYoceyaD77
