By now we all know what happened during India vs Pakistan at the Champions Trophy final.
Pakistan humiliated India by a huge margin of 180 runs to lift their maiden ICC Champions Trophy on Sunday.
When all the main batsmen of Indian Cricket team went back to the pavilion in the early overs and everyone thought that the match was over, it was Hardik who gave them a sigh of relief by scoring 76 in 43 balls. It was Pandya, who fought like a warrior alone and made us sit for the match again. But all went in vain when Hardik too had to return pavilion for the mistake of Ravindra Jadeja.
Pandya looked visibly furious with Jadeja not responding to his call and the latter didn’t even sacrificed his wicket for the former. Pandya took to Twitter to express his displeasure with the loss and wrote, “Hume to apno ne loota, gairo me kahan dum tha (We were looted by one of us, why blame others).”
His tweet was perhaps aimed at both Jadeja and Bumrah. The Baroda cricketer, later, deleted the tweet for it was considered in bad taste by many.
Many media houses believed that the cricketer had actually posted this and fell for it, but the truth was something else. Hardik in his conversation with CricTracker revealed that it was a fake tweet and he didn’t post any of such tweet.
Basically, that Twitter user had used F12 i.e. a key which can be used to fetch developer tool in Google Chrome bar, which allows to edit the tweet.
Here’s what Pandya had actually posted; #CT17 was an incredible journey for #TeamIndia. We gave it our best. A complete team??effort. Thank you everyone for the messages & support.

The young India all-rounder after impressing with his bowling effort, was the lone talking point of the Indian batting in the final. Pandya’s aggressive batting against Pakistan showed there weren’t any demons in the pitch and that it was the lack of execution and early jitters of the Indian batsmen which cost them their wickets and eventually the match.
