India suffered a crushing 180-run defeat at the hands of arch-rivals Pakistan which marked the end of an unsuccessful title defence. Moreover, when the players were returning to the dressing room a Pakistan fan tried to provoke them into giving a reaction which eventually did not happen.
India lost the final of the Champions Trophy to Pakistan and surrendered their title after failing to chase down a humongous target of 339 as they were bowled out for a paltry score of 158, thanks to some incredible bowling from Pakistan.
However, the Indian players gracefully accepted the defeat and were seen praising their Pakistani counterparts for the amazing performance in the final. The sportsmanship was on display from both the sides and was commendable.
However, a certain Pakistani fan went overboard while the Indian players were making their way back to the dressing room after collecting the runners-up awards and posted a video of the whole incident on Facebook. The fan could be heard saying offensive phrases such as "Akkad toot
However, the Indian players paid no attention to his idiotic gestures and calmly made their way into the dressing room except for Mohammed Shami who looked to confront the person but was stopped by MS Dhoni who took the speedster to the dressing room.
