Pakistani social media users are trolling India after it lost World Test Championship (WTC) to New Zealand.
A video circulating on social media showed Indian fans rejoicing at the game of the Indian cricket team on screen just when New Zealand bowled out an Indian batsman. From the moments of joy, the fans were left upset and disappointed within seconds. The reaction of Indian fans has been garnering attention on social media, also allowing the Pakistani social media to troll them through memes.
Some social media users likened the situation to the Pakistan Air Force downing Indian Air Force jets in 2019 and IAF downing its own jet.
Australian journalist Dennis said “When you send a MiG-21 into Pakistan and then hear what happened to it” in a tweet. His comments irked the Indian fans who hit back with aggressive comments on Twitter, ensuing in a social media war between the netizens from both sides.
The Australian journalist has complained that his meme video on Indian fans got blocked on Facebook. “The @ICC blocked my meme guy video on Facebook. It had over 1 million views in less than 24 hrs. It’s like they don’t want to promote their sport or they are jealous that my posts her more hits than theirs,” wrote Dennis in his latest tweet.
Netizens are even mocking the statement released by Indian skipper Virat Kohli after losing the tournament. To him deciding the winner based on one test match is unfair, he suggested having three-match test series to check the resilience and determination of any cricket team.
The social media users commented that India has been poorly performing in some of the last ICC events. Hence, the Indian cricket team should analyze its weaknesses and come up stronger next time.
