Indian spin bowler Harbhajan Singh took a dig at Pakistan fans amid the allegations levied by social media users over the Indian team for fixing the matches in T20 World Cup.
After India’s win against Afghanistan, there was a conspiracy theory that the match was fixed. ‘Fixing’ was one of the trends on social media that was being hyped without enough substantial evidence.

We accept that Pakistan have played very good cricket: Harbhajan Singh
India lost their opening game to Pakistan by ten wickets. It was the latter’s first win over their neighbours in any World Cup event.
While acknowledging Pakistan’s stupendous run in the tournament, Harbhajan warned Pakistan fans to not misbehave by putting irrelevant charges against the Indian and Afghanistan teams.
“We accept that Pakistan have played very good cricket and everyone also appreciates them for playing so well against India and beating them.
“Congratulations on that. But if you start misbehaving by claiming that you play fair cricket and if we win, you doubt us, term it unfair, fixed, then that is wrong. We all know your cricketers’ reputation,” Harbhajan said on his YouTube channel.
“Pakistan fans are unable to digest their win over India, which they got after waiting for so many years in World Cups. There is a way to talk and raise questions. But people are putting serious allegations against us, against Rashid Khan which is pretty cheap and disgraceful,” he added.
Pakistan have won all four games in Group 2 and will play their final match against Scotland on Sunday in Sharjah.
