Pakistan came back from a disappointing 124-run defeat to India in the first matc to beat South Africa, Sri Lanka, and England in consecutive matches to enter the CT finals. The win bought much joy to their fans and some of overexcited ones blocked Ganguly’s car as they were celebrating in London.
Former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly was troubled by Pakistan supporters as his car was stopped by them on the streets of London. In a video posted on Twitter, Ganguly is seen inside his car and in the the driving seat as the Pakistan cricket fans blocked his way and waved their countrys's flag at him. Kudos to the former Indian opener as he calmly handled a delicate situation smiling and waving his hand at the Pakistani fans. The situation was deflated after a brief while as security personnel turned up and helped Ganguly drive his way out of it.
The Twitter user who posted the video, however, was not too pleased with the Pakistani fans.
Show some maturity Pakistani fans. They also don't realize they are cleaning Ganguly's car with their national flag. pic.twitter.com/LiLpuGlDXr— Silly Point (@FarziCricketer) June 17, 2017
Most probably, the above incident took place post the first semifinal of the Champions Trophy, where Pakistan beat England by 8 wickets to enter the finals. After losing their opening encounter against India, social media made much fun of the Pakistani cricket team and many Pakistani fans felt the sting of the thrashing. The win over the tournament favorites in the semifinals gave a huge reason for these fans to celebrate. However, some of them may have crossed the limit in troubling Ganguly.
The final of the Champions Trophy will be played tomorrow at The Oval.
