IND vs NZ: ‘This team defeated us and …’, people got angry on Irfan Pathan’s ‘Garba Chalu’ taunt, reminded these bowlers
India vs New Zealand 2nd ODI: Team India badly defeated New Zealand in the second ODI. New Zealand’s innings fell apart like a house of cards. The visiting team could hardly cross the 100 mark.
Team India won the second ODI against New Zealand by 8 wickets. The dominance of the Indian fast bowlers was seen in the match played in Raipur. India won the toss and chose bowling and bundled out New Zealand for 108 runs in 34.3 overs. At one point, New Zealand’s condition was very bad and the visiting team was struggling after losing 5 wickets for a total score of 15. Glenn Phillips (36), Mitchell Santner (27) and Mike Bracewell (22) somehow took New Zealand past hundreds.
Former India all-rounder Irfan Pathan took a jibe at the fall of New Zealand team’s wickets in the Raipur ODI. He made fun of the batsmen of the current era. Irfan wrote on Twitter, “A little ball hila aur garba chalu in front of the batsmen of this era.” Many cricket fans got angry on this tweet of Irfan. He openly expressed his displeasure in the comment box and reminded Irfan of the bowlers of his tour.
One user commented, ‘According to your logic… bowlers of this era are better than the overrated bowlers of your era like Shoaib Akhtar, Glenn McGrath, Brett Lee, Wasim Akram, Muralitharan and Shane Bond because they bowl in favorable conditions I used to go bowling. Do not feel bad. Another user wrote, “It is not so, this New Zealand team defeated us in the final of the World Test Championship and Garba was started by our people in England.” When will maturity come in you? You are judging from one match.
Significantly, India won the second ODI against New Zealand to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series. India defeated the Kiwi team by 12 runs in the Hyderabad ODI. The last ODI of the series will be played on January 24 (Tuesday) at the Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore.
