The ongoing T20 series between Pakistan and the ICC World XI in Pakistan is more about the revival of cricket in the country than the on-field action.

Pakistan on Tuesday took a giant step towards reviving international cricket at home with a 20-run victory over the World XI in a match before excited crowds amid tight security.

The first match of the much anticipated Independence Cup was played at Gaddafi Stadium. Faf du Plessis-led star-studded side lost to Sarfraz Ahmed's team who took a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.




The excitement ahead of the match soon turned into anger as the Australian journalist Dennis Freedman took a tasteless dig at the Indian cricketers. Indians who were not named in the ICC World XI squad were missed by many Pakistani fans.







Freedman tweeted this:

To everyone's shock, Freedman wrote, "Sweepers clean the stadium in readiness for the World XI match."

The tweet which seemed more than just a banter didn't go well with many including the ones on the other side of the border who joined Indians to slam the journalist.
































Dennis, an admirer of Pakistan cricket often engages in trolling Indians on the micro blogging site with jokes and memes.
