Mushtaq Ahmed, the former Pakistani cricketer, recently has revealed that the West Indies players, Jason Holder, Chris Gayle, and Andre Russell claimed about India’s intention to sketch a conspiracy against Pakistan in the World Cup 2019.
After some excerpt from Ben Stokes’ book, on fire’ has been misunderstood by Pakistani media, writers, fans, and the experts, there have been a glazing and fuming controversy going on which says that ‘India lost deliberately to England to kick-out Pakistan from the ICC T20 World Cup 2019′.
Although Ben Stokes neglected the news terming it as ‘clickbait’ and ‘twisting of words’, still some people misunderstood it and cricketers are now turned on commenting over the scenario. First, Sikander Bakht, then Abdul Razzaq, and then Mushtaq Ahmed has come forward to support Ben Stokes’ never existing statement and said that India lost deliberately so they could eliminate Pakistan from the tournament.
Mushtaq was working as the Assistant coach of the team from the Caribbean in the World Cup. “I was working with the West Indies squad at last year’s World Cup. After India’s loss to England, Jason Holder, Chris Gayle and Andre Russell said to me, Mushy, India didn’t want to see Pakistan qualify for the semi-finals,” he said according to Pak Passion editor Saj Sadiq.
