Enormous number of Pakistan cricket fans backed the tweet of their idol. However, the comments of Indian fans garnered the wide attention. “Its way better than playing Pakistan. At least they don’t get bread and omelette in the IPL. Any IPL team can defeat Pakistan any given day. Moreover t20 WC is in India. So it is more of a common sense as to why everybody wants to play IPL.” said a follower whereas another one said “Bcoz pak is irrelevant in front of ipl “

Tbh nobody actually care about series with Pakistan when IPL is close. Had it been aus,eng and NZ all key players of RSA would have stayed one more day. But since it's pakistan they thought it's better to leave for India and get some practice for upcoming competitive cricket.— Green_Arrow🏹 (@I_am_GreenArrow) April 8, 2021
