BIRMINGHAM: Former Pakistan cricketer Basit Ali has made a number of 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.
He further made claims that India intentionally played poorly against Afghanistan and that David Warner deliberately underperformed against India.
Ali was speaking on a TV show on Pakistan-based channel Ary News, Ali said, “India will never want that Pakistan make it to the semi-finals. They have matches remaining against Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. Everyone saw the fashion in which they won against Afghanistan.”
