ICC World Cup 2019: Harbhajan Singh Calls Basit Ali ”Stupid” Following His Claims On India’s Intent
It was a distasteful statement from the former Pakistan Cricketer Basit Ali. The Cricketer-turned-analysts feels that the Indian team will deliberately lose their game against Bangladesh and Sri Lanka in order to see Pakistan making an exit from the tournament. Meanwhile, Harbhajan Singh gives it back to him.
Former Pakistan cricketer Basit Ali has made quite a few outrageous claims about India’s World Cup campaign. One of the many shocking claims made by Ali was when he said that India will deliberately lose their matches against Sri Lanka and Bangladesh so that Pakistan does not make it to the semi-finals of the ongoing World Cup
I thin Imran Bhai should fix Basit Ali – Harbhajan Singh
Speaking of the same, the veteran off-spinner Harbhajan Singh quoted that Basit Ali should be stupid to speak in such a way. Further, he went on to add saying that Basit Ali is letting himself and Pakistan down by making such comments.
Meanwhile, he also requested the Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, who is the former Pakistan skipper to fix Basit Ali as quickly as possible in order to save their pride across the globe.
“What makes him say that? Is he stupid? I don’t know what is he smoking, seriously! He’s got to be on a different planet in order for him to talk ill like this. That’s probably the way they have played their cricket and that’s how they see the game,” Bhajji said while speaking to India Today.
“I think Imran Bhai should fix him now. I think he needs to be fixed because you can’t put your team down like this by saying that ’92 was fixed and now 2019 is fixed as well,” Harbhajan further added.
Pakistan’s chances of reaching the semi-final have taken a massive blow after India’s loss to England. They now have to beat Bangladesh and hope New Zealand beat England.
If England beat New Zealand on June 5, Pakistan’s chances are all but over as the Black Caps will have a better net run rate than Pakistan.
