England’s Barmy Army has a habit of mocking and trolling rivals. The famous fan group of England’s cricket team is active on social media, but they, too, get the taste of their own medicine from the fans and groups of other teams.
After India and Pakistan thriller at the Dubai International Stadium, Barmy Army downplayed the rivalry between the two nations and termed Ashes a more popular one worldwide.
The fans brutally trolled them as England were beaten 0-4 last time they played the Ashes in Australia.
However, the most epic response came from former India player and current social media king Wasim Jaffer.
“If I was an England fan, with the Ashes record Eng has, I’d downplay the Ashes if anything,” he wrote.
For the record, Pakistan defeated India by 5 wickets in the Super 4 stage. India scored 181/7 with the help of Virat Kohli’s 60 off 40 balls. Chasing 182, Mohammad Rizwan and Mohammad Nawaz played brilliant innings to lead the Men in Green to a much-needed victory.
