Mumbai: Pakistan saw their seventh loss to India in a world cup match on Sunday. While Pakistani skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed accepted the Indian team to be better than his side, it was a Pakistani fan in the crowd who took sharp digs at the Pakistani squad, and questioned their fitness ahead of important matches. The fan, who was obviously frustrated with the team’s defeat, has stated the players were out eating junk a day before the match.

While the Indian side were visibly in a better form than their neighbour-rivals on Sunday, the players in green did make some clumsy goof-ups during the first innings as they let important balls slip every now and then, with even the fielding players losing their balance at times.

The team conceded 336 runs from an in-form Indian side and couldn’t succesfully chase the target. They have now lost three of five games, one of which was a washout, leaving them at second-last position on the points table, ahead of only Afghanistan, who are yet to win a match.

Pakistan must win all the remaining four matches to make it through the league stage of the tournament.
