Since Pakistan won a World Cup match against India things have been tough for Indian team players. They are subjected to trolls and so much hate.
The most recent example of fast bowler Mohammed Shami is disturbing, how a match can question your profession and patriotism for the nation.
But things were different in 2004. The time when India won the match and how people lauded Irfan Pathan for the win during that time.
Here is a little story from my father, when we came back victorious from from the Pakistan tour in 2004. We use to live in jamma masjid, My father went to the terrace of masjid with proudly holding indian flag 🇮🇳 to greet all the fans who came to celebrate our victory on d field. pic.twitter.com/iirlYa0pGt— Irfan Pathan (@IrfanPathan) October 26, 2021
His father says, "the entire Baroda was outside his house, people praised and screamed Irfan Pathan zindabad."
However, things are not the same since we lost the match.
