The World XI under the leadership of Faf Du Plessis is currently touring Pakistan to play a three match T20 series in the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore. This tournament brought back international cricket to Pakistan after a gap of eight years. The cricket fans were elated and poured in huge numbers to see their heroes play against the best in the business.

Before the start of the tournament, an Australian journalist made a witty post on the social media site Twitter to take a dig at the Indian team for not participating in this historic event.

Dennis Freedman is a well-known Australian journalist who is known for his good sense of humor over the past years. He has a follower count of more than 65,000 on the Twitter account and often posts funny stuff to make cricket less stiff.

 

On Tuesday, he tweeted a picture of Virat Kohli along with other players cleaning the stands of the Eden Gardens to extend their support for the “Swachh Bharat campaign” introduced by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He captioned the picture with, “Sweepers clean the stadium in readiness for the World XI match.”

This irked the Indian fans all over the world due to the resentment between the two nations. The Indian fans were quick to retaliate and take a stand for their cricketing heroes. The men in blue have not played a bilateral series against their neighbor for the last five year due to the political turmoil between the two countries. Earlier, the head coach of World XI Andy Flower handed this issue quite smartly acknowledging the political problem.

Kohli & Co received support all across the border even some Pakistani fans came forward to show their respect for the Indian captain.

The series is tied at 1-1 with one match still to play. The Pakistan team defeated the World XI courtesy some wonderful batting from Babbar Azam. The World XI came back strongly in the second match of the series to make the series level.

Everybody chipped in with good performance to beat Pakistan by seven wickets. The cricket is played in right spirit, and the cricketing world saw the rarest sight when Darren Sammy applauded a toe-crushing yorker from Hasan Ali which made lose his foot hold and he was grounded.
