People are sharing about sports hence it would be appropriate to share what happened between an India and Pakistan in the ongoing T20 World Cup (cricket). The game a legacy of the British who ruled over us for 200 years. Anyways, before the match began, they all took the knee in support of BLM. Later post-match the Captain Virat Kohli shared that it wasn't something they did of their own violation but something the owners and the management (BCCI) wanted them to do.
This was apparently a signal to the U.S. over some alleged grievance India has, It could be not giving more vaccines to India for free to anything else altogether. What message they wanted to send is for diplomats to find out.
In the game itself, Pakistan won the toss and India batted first and they got out cheaply and Pakistan won convincingly - https://www.espncricinfo.com/story/t20- ... ay-1285090https://www.espncricinfo.com/story/ind- ... ge-1285083
Later, the whole blame of the game was put on Mohammad Shami (the only Muslim on the team) with the allegation that because he is a Muslim, he let the opposing team win (Pakistan). This is real life and reel life coming together. People can see a movie called 'Chak De India' made over a decade ago on similar lines. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0871510/
After 4 days of being trolled both on Twitter and Instagram, the Indian captain came out in support of Mohammad Shami and called out those people who were trolling. And he specifically called out professional trollers. It is known that BJP has an IT cell where a person can post communal tweets @ INR Rs. 2/- per tweet.
Anyways, after his unequivocal support of fellow team-mate Mohammad Shami, the RW turned on him too and quite a few of them (influential ones) have wished that India lose the series under his captainship.
What is also tragic is that out of 14 people, only one person had guts to come forward and support a team-mate. And now rumors are doing the rounds, that he would be made to forced to resign both as a captain and then as a player.
