Did India loose against England wantedly?
Did India loose against England wantedly? May be yes because that is what probably Pakistan alleges, if not in direct tone.
This photo message is doing rounds in social media after India lost the cricket match against England on Sunday. And yes indirectly Pakistan too wanted India to win against England. Need not mention that Pakistan might have wished for the Indian win for the first time in history. But to the Pakistan’s disappointment India lost.
With this win, England upstaged Pakistan to return to No. 4 in the points table with 10 points in 8 matches. England not only enhanced their chances of reaching the ICC World Cup 2019 semi-finals by beating India on Sunday at Edgbaston by 31 runs but they also knocked Sri Lanka out of the tournament and left Pakistan on the brink.
Virat Kohli’s India still need one win in their remaining two matches against Bangladesh and Sri Lanka to ensure qualification into semi finals.
Australia have already qualified to the World Cup 2019 semi-finals whereas New Zealand and India are just one win away from a spot in the knockout stages.
Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Bangladesh are in a must-win situation and can still into the last-four of the competition with a few results going their way.
West Indies, South Africa and Afghanistan have already been knocked after a dismal run of performances in their group matches.
