The case of Deepti Sharma doing Mankading in the match between India and England women’s team is constantly in the news. Cricketers from different countries are giving their opinion on this matter. However, whatever Deepti did, she did it within the rules, but in the name of sportsmanship, Deepti is being criticized. Now Mohammad Asif of Pakistan has also called Deepti a cheater. After this, Indian fans have fiercely trolled Asif .
Asif shared a photo of Deepti doing Mankading and wrote, “We can clearly see that she has no intention of bowling. She is looking at the non-striker batsman to cheat her. This is very wrong. And it’s scary work. Very bad sportsmanship.”
In response, people made fun of Asif fiercely and taunted him a lot. A user wrote that the cricketer who cheated his country for some money is now talking like an elite man. You are completely fine. At the same time, another user wrote that what Deepti did, she did it according to the rules of cricket. The world knows that Pakistani players have always hurt the spirit of the game.
Another user took a jibe and wrote, “Yes, match-fixing is the real sporting spirit. Asif God give you strength.” Another user wrote that where do you get the confidence to put a hashtag of cheating match-fixing.
