India's campaign during the ongoing T20 World Cup 2022 is nothing short of a rollercoaster ride. While the Rohit Sharma-led side has been fairly clinical and won three out of their four games thus far with their only loss coming against South Africa in Perth, the team has been making headlines for some controversial issues too.
Let it be the waist-height no-ball call in the game against Pakistan in the dramatic last over where Virat Kohli raised his arm enquiring the on-field umpires for a no-ball or him faking a shy at the non-striker's end in the game against Bangladesh, there have been far too many controversies surrounding the team down under.
Kohli's fake throw incident went unnoticed on the field of play and it was Bangladesh's vice-captain Nurul Hasan who pointed it out after the game got over as India won the contest by a margin of five runs (DLS). Several prominent players and cricket experts have voiced their opinions on the incidents. While some see it as a part of the game others like former Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi have come out with a bold statement on the same.
David Lloyd reacts to Shahid Afridi's statement
Afridi on a live show on Samaa TV said that ICC is inclined towards India and want to make sure that the latter reaches the semi-finals of the ongoing event.
The topic of debate was that the game (India vs Bangladesh) resumed shortly after the rain stopped as many argued that the match officials could have taken more time before resuming play. Skipper Shakib Al Hasan was seen having a conversation with the match officials on the same before the resumption of play.
Meanwhile, former England international and commentator David Lloyd reacted to Afridi's statement by putting out a one word tweet.
