Gautam Gambhir wants India and Pakistan to meet in the T20 World Cup 2024 final happening in the USA and West Indies. He’s worried about fans finding joy in the other team’s loss rather than celebrating their own success.
In a recent chat, Gambhir stressed the need to enjoy victories without reveling in the rival’s defeat. He’s concerned about the negative vibe among fans, where one team’s loss becomes the other’s celebration.
“If India and Pakistan reach the T20 World Cup 2024 final, it shouldn’t be about cheering for the other’s loss. Fans shouldn’t party if the rival team fails” said Gautam Gambhir.
Gambhir pointed out how social media fuels this behavior and urged fans to change. He emphasized finding happiness in their team’s success, not in others’ failures.
“People celebrate others’ defeats, and that’s not cool. Indian fans enjoy Pakistan’s losses, and vice versa. This negative vibe needs to stop, especially on social media. Enjoy your success, don’t revel in others’ pain” he added.
The 2024 Men’s T20 World Cup is set for June 4-30 in the Caribbean and the USA, marking America’s first cricket hosting. ESPN Cricinfo reported ICC’s venue scouting in the USA, checking places like Lauderhill, Morrisville, Dallas, and New York.
