    He didn’t take a single on the 2nd ball of the final over when the match was long gone already

    This is crying for spot-fixing

    I don’t know how anyone can justify this

    They obviously weren’t bothered with chasing down the runs. Just happy taking singles the last 5 overs and then slogging in the final over when there was no chance to win.

    They all should be investigated.

    Lost on purpose and made it obvious.

    No intent or attempt in last 10 overs. Then starts hitting sixes in last over for banter when game is gone.

    Tactical loss by India and very unsporting. Don’t give a crap about their fans who spent money coming to watch. Extremely foolish display.

    Who cares, it will be good if NZ win and we qualify with no help from India. Also this match showed India's weakness in chasing 300+ totals for everyone to see. We knew this from CT but still made the brainless decision to bowl first against them in the league game.

    So true. This world cup is all about bat first and make the teams chase.

    Biggest blame lies with Mickey and Sarfraz for bowling first that day and playing Malik. They should be investigated for that decision alone!

    Also, the SL washout cost Pakistan easy point. Why wasn't the Australian game washed out instead!

    Also, NZ have no chance vs England. Apart from Boult NZ bowling is ordinary. Batting has been a flop. Best you can hope now is for NZ to lose badly and Pakistan to win handsomely.

    Or India to lose to Bengalis and SL!

    New Zealand will beat England.

    Not sure what Dhoni was thinking today or what he was trying to do but don't worry, England will lose when they play a team that will actually try to win.

    I don’t care they lost on purpose.

    Why did he not take a single on the 2nd ball of that last over. That’s only a fixer would do.

    Here is a universal rule of the world

    Only the weak gets the beating.

    If you are strong, no one has the courage to even make an eye contact with you.

    And because we are weak, they are and they will, jump all over us.

    Why did Dhoni & Co did what they did?
    Because we are weak and we are at a weaker position.

    If you want others not to do unjust things with you, then don’t complain because the only way to stop this, is to become stronger.

    “Might is right”. This is the only way.

    Agree with Patriot for once

    Dhoni was batting with a full time batsman, Jadhav, not with effing Boom Boom Bumrah.

    Why on earth did he not take the single?

    It's not about Pakistan. If this is how the format of WC is going to be than the format needs to be rectified for the next WC, You cant just bloody wait and watch for the top 4 teams to decide the fate of other teams!

    Not entirely an incorrect assessment.

    That's not Cricket.

    Cricket is a gentleman's game but it was not so this evening at Edgbaston as India lost to England on purpose.

    It was so palpably evident that
    it prompted one
    commentator Nasser Hussain to ask his colleague Ganguly if he could explain why India, the top side in this World Cup , was not making a serious effort to win the match. Ganguly replied that he honestly could not offer any explanation as he witnessed the master finisher Dhoni just about going through the motions in the last 50 deliveries.
    Kohli was asked the same question in the presentation ceremony. His answer was flimsy and lacked credibility.

    On a ground with shorter square boundaries, there were sixes galore from the England batters Roy, Bairstow, Stokes and Butler. On the contrary, India hit only one six in the 50th over.

    India made sure England got 2 points on the Points Table taking England to a position where if it wins its next match against NZ would mean Pakistan's exit from the Cup.

    Let's see what Providence has in store!

    Well Done #India for showing us how to lose a match Deliberately in a Grand event like the CWC... It just showed the Fear and Hatred that they have in their minds against #Pakistan and showed how poor Sportsmanship they got....
    Btw,,,the good thing is that in 1992,,England beat India and got beaten by New Zealand ...

    I dont understand the uproar in reaction to this event - even if they threw the match, or didnt particularly try, the underlying issue is that pakistan were crap most of the tournament, india didnt have anything to do with the NRR losses suffered by the matches against WI and AFG, or the loss against AUS which should have been a win. Pakistan has no one else to blame but itself.

    Look at it from fans perspective.
    105 needed off 60. 7 wickets in hand. Game is bubbling nicely and heading towards a close and exciting finish. Fans all over the world (millions of them) take time out of work and family commitments etc. to watch a nice finish. Some even pay £300+ to be there. Then India give up blatantly for no reason. How do you justify that. Isn't this affecting integrity of sport?

    Would you want to watch cricket played like this? Wouldn't you rather watch your team give it a good go? Its shameful. I feel sorry for the Indian fans who want their team to win.

    To add to this, 1 boundry in 59m! Only 1 six hit in all of the innings.

    Even a used cartridge has a go at printing and may come out in lighter shade, blotchy. Here the used cartridge did not make any attempt to do its job. It not a used cartridge. Its a rotten cricketer

    Forget the Pakistan scenario. This was about morals and ethics. Integrity of the game. And that six was in the last over for goodness’ sake.. very poor stuff

    I accept that totally, and watching the match from a cricketing perspective, fans were short changed by what seems to be a very typically underhanded Indian political stance with regards to pakistan. but despite that, I'm not prepared to blame india for the mess that pakistan is in.

    @Patriot your OP is totally spot and it’s inexplicable as to why MS refused the single only to run a single the next ball. Not like he was going for the target or protecting a number 11.

    Extremely bizarre chase. It was a game thrown by Indians. Body language was all defeat. Laughing away when getting out. They sold their morals and ethics over a game of cricket.

    How have Pakistan been crap most of the tournament? Yes we had two really bad losses to India and West Indies. We beat one of the favorites, England and an undefeated team, New Zealand. Game against Australia was pretty close.

    Just because you're overindexing on the India + West Indies games does not mean Pakistan was crap most of the tournament. We've done decently well - the wins against South Africa and NZ were phenomenal.

    India + Aus have been the only two teams clearly better than us, but I don't think there's much to separate Pakistan, NZ, and Eng.

    The six at the end was the icing on the cake for India. What dhoni was trying to do in the last over was to try and hit a few sixes to send 2 messages.

    1. We did this deliberately
    2. We could have won this if we wanted to, we are still unbeaten.

    The problem is he doesn’t have the ability, timing and skill to hit those big sixes anymore, so the message got a bit muffled. People are confusing dhoni’s current ability with his intent. Yes his ability may be reduced, but intent is something different altogether. You can’t blame age for intent. A 60 year old can still try and hit 6s. He didn’t even try and neither did Pandya tbh.

    Absolutely. Never ever have I disliked an Indian team this much. I really hope they are knocked out. Dubious team it is. It was absolutely frustrating to watch, just like the 2011 SF against India, where our middle order (MIsbah and Younus) played dubiously as well, but that never got investigated.
