In a cricket crazy country like India, where the entire nation is glued to television screens these days because of the ongoing ICC World Cup tournament, a match getting cancelled because of rains hurts a lot. Sharing the sentiment of the country, Amitabh Bachchan wants the tournament to be shifted to India.
After the India vs New Zealand match was declared cancelled, frustrated Indian cricket fans began venting out their anger on Twitter and most of them blamed it on the ICC. The hashtag #ShameOnICC trended on Twitter for the entire day.
Replying to one such tweet, Amitabh Bachchan demanded for a change in venue for the tournament. He wanted it to be held in India but not just because he wants to watch the matches in the country but also to get rains and get respite from scorching heat.
A cricket fan tweeted, Shame on #ICC for organizing such an important tournament at such a time when half the matches are getting washed away! Get a life folks, and concentrate on the right timing of the tournament rather than on the right glove of #Dhoni!!! #WorldCup2019
The Badla actor was his comic best and wrote, “Shift the tournament WC 2019 to India .. we need the rain .. !!!”
