Pakistan and England have won their all three games, so far, in the mega event and have been playing some quality cricket
Former Indian opener Aakash Chopra was criticised on social media after he named Pakistan and England as finalists of the ongoing T20 World Cup.
Pakistan and England have won their all three games, so far, in the mega event and have been playing some quality cricket.
However, netizens, mostly Indians, were not happy with Chopra’s assessment. They also blamed the renowned commentator for overlooking India despite the fact that the Men in Blue have only played one match in the tournament.

You are an influencer and people see what you think and write here, so be ready to delete this tweet and apologize once India reach the final. https://t.co/RVFtUd4Xk3— Amit Padmawar (@amitpadmawar) October 31, 2021
Not expected from you @cricketaakash. We have only played 1 match and you have assumed we're gonna loose. Atleast have faith in our men in blue. #IndianCricketTeam #India #WCT20 https://t.co/03Vnp9zJ3W— Kaun hu mai dada (@haste_sachin) October 31, 2021
We have played just 1 match and people are getting swayed by popular wind. Suddenly, India has fallen off from the favourite pedestal. Watch some more India games before drawing such conclusions! #t20worldcup2021 https://t.co/Lssf6zbDO4— Ved Prakash Pati (@vppati) October 31, 2021
The reaction also forced Chopra to put up another tweet where he quoted famous American writer Mark Twain as saying “It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt”.

I didn’t tell you what Mark Twain said that day…he said…

India will face New Zealand, which will be the second match in the event for both teams, today. The winner of this match will significantly improve their chances of qualifying for the semi-finals.
