Pakistani Fans Blocked Sourav Ganguly’s Car After Entering Champions Trophy Finals

Published on 17 June, 2017 at 9:25 pm By

As soon as India qualified for the Champions Trophy finals after defeating Bangladesh, the nation went into celebratory mode not only because we qualified, but also because the final will be India vs Pakistan once again. The competitive spirit will fill us to the brim, but there will always be few who spoil the fun.

An uncontrollable group of Pakistani fans surrounded Sourav Ganguly’s car outside the Cardiff stadium. The incident took place right after the Pakistan cricket team won over host England and entered the finals.

The crowd was shouting slogans at the cricketer and covered his car’s bonnet with Pakistani flags. Ganguly waved at the crowd a few times but the madness did not subside. The motives of the crowd are questionable as India was yet to play the semifinals with Bangladesh on June 15 to qualify for the finals.

Sourav Ganguly is a respected former Indian cricketer and presently a commentator for ICC. Admirably, he kept his cool when scores of Pakistani fans blocked his car.

It is also notable that he has recently criticized Pakistani cricketer Aamer Sohail for blaming external factors for Pakistan’s below expectation performance.

He said to India Today in a video interview,

The likes of Sarfraz (Ahmed) and his boys are used to all this. This is not the first time I’m hearing all these. And how can Pakistan influence their qualification into a final? How?

This show of overwhelming emotions on winning or losing to taunt the other team is not new to either of the teams.

Undoubtedly, there’s no taking sides as such instances of deliberate teasing are unhealthy for any game. However, the act to intentionally intimidate and block the way of a senior player demands serious discussion.

Twitterati also commented on the incident. Here are some of the reactions and explanations.
