New Delhi: Former Pakistan captain Waqar Younis questioned the Indian cricket team’s “sportsmanship” after the Men-in-Blue had suffered a loss against England in the on-going ICC World Cup on Sunday.
The former fast bowler took the Twitter route to criticize Team India.
It's not who you are.. What you do in life defines who you are.. Me not bothered if Pakistan gets to the semis or not but one thing is for sure.. Sportsmanship of few Champions got tested and they failed badly #INDvsEND #CWC2019

It was you who wanted to get yourself run out to deny Anil Kumble the 10th wicket. You are talking about sportsmanship. Hilarious!!

Pakistan wished to have foreign aid in cricket same as it has been living on aid from west for whole of it's life.

We Pakistanis shouldn’t complain about this game however we should leave this to Indian Fans it’s more of them to feel good or bad abt it
Pakistan should focus of what is left and move on

India suffered their first defeat in the mega event by the hosts leaving a difficult task for Pakistan to enter in the semi-finals of the World Cup 2019.
While chasing the victory target of 338 against England, the two-time champions managed to score 306/5 in the stipulated 50 overs.
Before the England vs India clash, former Pakistan cricketers Basit Ali and Sikander Bakht had alleged that the Men in Blue might intentionally lose to England to oust Pakistan from the tournament.
