Rumors have been doing the rounds after the cancellation of the 5th Test between India and England at the Old Trafford ground in Manchester. Some are not at all happy with the performance of Virat Kohli’s team, while some are blaming IPL 2021 for this. Former India cricketer Irfan Pathan has started trolling similar people on Twitter in a funny way. After it was learned that Team India refused to take the field on the first day of the 5th Test, both the boards decided to cancel the match.
Irfan Pathan took to his Twitter to taunt trolls on IPL 2021 by saying, ‘My tooth fell out, should I blame IPL for this?’ In fact, a day after the 5th Test, Team India’s junior physio Yogesh Parmar was found infected with Kovid, since then there has been a stir in Team India’s camp. However, the RT-PCR test report of Indian players has come negative and it is believed that the test was played according to its schedule. However, fearing a Covid outbreak on the field, Kohli-led Team India later flatly refused to take the field and the Test had to be cancelled.
Indian team’s refusal to play in the 5th Test due to Corona Blast: Kovid’s entry in Team India happened before the fourth Test when head coach Ravi Shastri was hit by the virus and he was accompanied by bowling coach Bharat Arun and physio Nitin Patel. After the cancellation of the Test, the fans started attacking Shastri and appealed for strict action against him. Actually, before the Oval Test, coach Shastri and captain Virat Kohli had gone to attend a book event and there were a large number of people without masks.
