“Common, why this much of misconduct. It is an injustice to the team that the media presents them in such a way that the Indian team can’t ever lose a single game, they are the pride of India and what not,” Akhtar mentioned.

Furthermore, Akhtar stated that the same Indian media would’ve glorified the Indian team. If they would’ve won their matches in the World Cup. Akhtar harmed Indian news channels for gaining views on the back of heavily criticizing their Indian cricket team.

“Lastly, after all the hype around the team, if India loses a match, even then, the media benefits from it. They gained huge TRP by criticizing the Indian team. I was watching Indian media, and everyone was bashing the team and were citing that they only want to play IPL for money. That’s not fair, man. Yes, they’ve lost those matches but of course, they didn’t lose it intentionally,” Shoaib Akhtar said.
