Pakistan Cheering For India Against England Had Cricket Fans Sharing Hilarious Memes!

I was surprised MS Dhoni didn't go for it more towards the end of the India innings but I think it was more because of the way England's bowlers made it hard than anything else. Basit Ali, the former batsman had claimed that India may deliberately lose to Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.

"If India are already through, they will in their final match allow the opponents to win to ensure that Pakistan are knocked-out", he said during a live transmission. After beating South Africa, Australia, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Windies, India has nearly secured their spot for the semi-finals.

But when Sharma and Kohli were going along nicely in the middle, they gave England a proper scare.

Generally, on the field, both India and Pakistan are seen as arch-rivals but yesterday's match united fans from both nations like nothing else ever could.

Currently, Pakistan are at number five with nine points in their eight matches, while England are at the fourth spot with ten points. Pakistan were thrashed by the West Indies in their opening match, which was followed by a shock win over England.

The wicket at the ground was off-centre, meaning one boundary was noticeably shorter on one side than the other, and England routinely took advantage after deciding to bat first. Neither side can afford a loss, however.

"Call me superstitious but I'd say it's the jersey that ended India's winning streak in the #ICCWorldCup2019", Mehbooba wrote on Twitter. But, there are similarities between the two cricketers and fans seem to have spotted that.

Sporting a deep blue and orange jersey, the Virat Kohli-led side lost to England by 31 runs on Sunday, the first defeat for the team in the tournament.

We can't wait for India to play against Bangladesh and memes to hit the Internet all over again! Many Pakistan supporters didn't like the Indian players' attitude towards that match.

India are now all but qualified for the knockout stage despite the loss to England.

Yes, given the improbable NRR scenarios, India and New Zealand are both pretty much through.

When Hardik Pandya was dismissed in the 45th over, India needed 71 runs in the final 5 overs with 5 wickets in hand but all Dhoni and Jadhav could manage was 39 runs.
