Varanasi witnessed an outrage by Indian cricket fans as India failed to defend their Champions Trophy crown at the Kennington Oval on Sunday. Probably, losing against Pakistan caused a deeper damage and added to their frustration of seeing their team let go of the title.

A huge mob of fans lost their mind and went berserk on the streets of Varanasi following the depressing defeat. In a video posted on a Facebook page, the unruly fans can be seen rubbing black paint on the posters of Indian players. The act was supported by loud and clear slogans asking the players to be ashamed of their performance.

“Virat Kohli Haaye Haaye”, “Shikhar Dhawan Haaye Haaye”, “Khiladiyon sharam karo”, were the slogans that were repeated numerous times as the fans went on to break a television set by throwing it to the ground. It was followed by a session where the fans broke down the TV set into pieces by a stick and then burnt it.

What the fans had to say:

According to a fan who was interviewed, the Indians players spoiled their pre-Eid celebrations and shattered the mood. This kind of a loss is not at all acceptable and will be tough to erase from their memory added the fan. It seemed as if the Indians are losing their wickets intentionally as the batting order went down like a pack of cards said another angry fan.

India suffered a shameful loss against an inexperienced Pakistani side who ripped them apart like a pod of peas. Brilliant display with the bat by Fakhar Zaman and Mohammad Hafeez took Pakistan to a massive total of 338 runs. Coming onto bat, a strong Indian batting line-up was completely outplayed by Mohammad Amir and Hasan Ali of Pakistan who managed to bundle them out for a mere 158 runs. Pakistan laid their hands upon the Champions Trophy for the first time in the history of cricket.

So this is why they usually win…
