Pakistani Fans are Supporting India for the First Time Since 1947 to uproot England from the showpiece event so that Green Shirts can qualify smoothly.
“Divided During Independence Day 1947, United now in Cricket World Cup 2019”.
India-Pakistan Rivalry needs no explanation. Their clash represents ‘ignited emotions’ and attracts eyeballs globally. But, this time Fans from both sides have put their rivalries on hold for the greater cause. The hopes of Pakistan relies upon India to thwack England in Today’s Game. If India beats England, Pakistan’s chances of qualifying to next round will get brighter.

Pakistani fans cleared the air by declaring that they would support Kohli Side.
We are supporting India because we will beat them in Semi- Final or Final like the way we did in 2017 Champions Trophy.

In 1947, England divided India and Pakistan. Today they united them.
Most Indians are supporting Pakistan today so that England goes out of the WorldCup.

Definitely backing India 🇮🇳 for two reasons
1- they’re neighbours
2- they’re passionate about cricket

But the Thing is, we simply can’t Underestimate England and put the blame on India at the end.
If India lose today, inevitably the narrative is going to be that they lost deliberately. That’s definitely not true, India would want to avoid Eng in the semis. Also don’t forget, Eng beating anyone isn’t surprising, they actually are a strong team, even stronger with Roy

However, Many dishearted Fans are rooting for England just to Avoid another Shameful defeat from India.
Rooting for the English team. I rather have the team not play the Semifinal than play it because of India. Btw @BLACKCAPS, kia haal chaal hain?

Semi me dobara har ke awam ko heart attack thore dilana hy

Some narcissistic Indians are looking for the ‘Chess’ Game to put Pakistan out of the Competition.
Should India should play a ‘chess’ move & lose to England to put Pakistan out of the semis? Happily, the majority say that #TeamIndia should always play to win. But some urged me to watch the match if I wanted Pakistan out.. 😁 (An inside joke with some of my followers!)
