New Delhi. In the T20 World Cup, there is to be a great match between India and Afghanistan (IND vs AFG T20 World Cup) today. This match is more important for India than this match is important for Afghanistan. If Team India loses in this match, then the journey of the World Cup will end. Before this match, leg-spinner Rashid Khan has made an emotional appeal to the cricket fans of Afghanistan. He has appealed to the fans to follow the rules by sharing a video message on Twitter.
His tweet came after the news of some fans entering the stadium without tickets during the Afghanistan-Pakistan match (AFG vs PAK T20 World cup 2021). Because of this, those spectators could not enter the stadium, who had tickets for the match. In this match, there was also a fight between the fans of both the countries. After this the ICC had to apologize as well.
Rashid Khan said in his video message that I am very excited about the AFGvIND match. What happened in the stadium last week was disappointing. We have to hoist our national flag and take care of the honor of our country. Please respect the rules and support the organisers. Enter the stadium only with a ticket.
I’m super excited about tomorrow’s AFGvIND game. I was disappointed at the scenes last weekend; we need to fly our national flag high & do our country proud. Pls respect rules & support the organizers @ICC @T20WorldCup @AbuDhabiCricket, only coming to the stadium with a ticket pic.twitter.com/GXsf1vSoiR
