Pakistan legendary cricketer Waqar Younis has joined the league of people to question the sportsmanship of Indian players following their loss to England in Sunday’s World Cup.

The former great fast bowler while taking to his Twitter handle in hit out at the Indian batsmen,”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.”

Questions have been raised following India’s 31 run loss to tournament hosts England with many claiming that India deliberately threw away the game to deny Pakistan an opportunity to make it to the semis.

Pakistan was banking on neighbors and arch-rivals India, who have enjoyed an unbeaten run in the tournament, to get the better of England. The favorable result would have increased the chances of Sarfaraz’s men to make the semifinals

Chasing a total of 338, India made just 28 runs in the first Powerplay. Then in the final five overs of the innings MS Dhoni  and Kedar Jadhav managed to hit just three fours and a six while picking up 20 singles and playing out six dots.

28 for 1 is the slowest start in the World Cup after the first Powerplay.
