After the match, several Pakistan fans took to social media to troll India for their third consecutive defeat against Australia in an ICC event final.
Posting his reponse on microblogging platform ‘X’, Irfan criticized such remarks and stated that mocking and trolling their neighbouring country reflects poorly on Pakistan as a nation.
“Despite their U19 team not making it to the final, keyboard warriors from across the border find pleasure in our youngsters’ defeat. This negative attitude reflects poorly on their nation’s mindset. #padosi,” Irfan posted from his official ‘X’ handle.
In a span of three months, India twice made the final of an ICC event unbeaten in the group stages, only to come up short in the title clash. Coincidentally, in both title clashes, they ran into their familiar nemesis, Australia, and finished on the losing side. First it was the senior team in the ODI World Cup final and now the U19 boys led by Uday Saharan.
Before that, India had also lost to Australia in the World Test Championship final as well.
