- Flood light failure during India Vs Australia
- Silence maintained on social media at this incident
During the Asia Cup, a floodlight failure incident gathered significant attention, with numerous journalists, including prominent figures like Vikrant Gupta, taking to social media to criticize Pakistan’s hosting capabilities. This event became a subject of ridicule within the media, highlighting Pakistan’s perceived inefficiency, although such technological glitches can occur anywhere.
Vikrant Gupta took it to his twitter account posting a daunting tweet at Pakistan;
It’s important to note that a true cricket enthusiast typically wouldn’t emphasize such incidents unless the intention is to belittle or demean someone, which seemed to be the case with some Indian commentators during the Asia Cup.
Ironically, a similar situation unfolded in India during the third ODI match against Australia, where a floodlight failure occurred in Rajkot Stadium. Remarkably, there was a noticeable silence surrounding this incident, even though India is set to host the upcoming World Cup.
This glaring difference of reaction at almost same incident shows the double standards that persists. While India’s boast for being the richest board in the entire cricket community still faces the same failure for which Pakistan board was ridiculed as inferior.
