Pakistan have a woeful record against India in recent ICC tournaments. But come the big day in the Champions trophy final, the eight placed side in the tournament thrashed the defending champions to lift their maiden Champions trophy.
After the match, the Indian players were visibly upset as they know that they failed to show up on the big day. As the players were walking back to the pavilion, a Pakistani fan tried to mock the Indian players.
He hurled abuses and tried to mock the Indian players as they walked past him. He specially called out Mohammed Shami, and gloated about India’s defeat. Shami took offense and tried to give a reply, but was stopped by Dhoni.
The calm head of Dhoni diffused the tension and prevented a potentially awkward scene. Cool as always!
