After India’s loss in the U19 World Cup, Irfan Pathan's "negative attitude" remark for Pakistan fans

Former all-rounder of team India, Irfan Pathan, hit back at Pakistan fans over their taunting posts following India’s Under-19 World Cup heartbreak on Sunday at Willowmoore Park, South Africa. The Australia U19 cricket team emerged triumphant with a fine all-round performance to clinch a 79-run victory. After the final, a number of Pakistan fans took to social media and trolled India for their third successive defeat in the final of an ICC event against Australia. Irfan took to X and clapped back at the Pakistani fans, saying such remarks, mocking and trolling their neighbor, reflect poorly on their nation.
Irfan posted from his official X handle, “Despite their U19 team not making it to the final, keyboard warriors from across the border find pleasure in our youngsters’ defeat. This negative attitude reflects poorly on their nation’s mindset. #padosi.”
In a span of three months, India twice made the final of an ICC event after going unbeaten in the group and knockout, only to come up short in the title clash. Coincidentally, in both title clashes, they ran into their familiar nemesis—Australia—and finished on the losing side.
