Former Indian all rounder Irfan Pathan forced to eat up his words against Pakistan
Former Indian all-rounder Irfan Pathan issued a clarification to his 'grace padosiyon ki bas ki baat nahi' (grace doesn't come naturally to our neighbours) tweet after being criticised heavily by Pakistani fans.
After an hour of his first tweet, which read, "Padosiyon jeet ati jaati rehti hai, lekin GRACE apke bas ki baat nahi hai. (Neighbours, winning and losing is part and parcel of the game but grace doesn't come naturally to you)."

After being roasted by the Pakistani trolls, Irfan went back his words saying it was not meant for the players. "And this is not for the player. NEVER," he added.

Irfan's first tweet was in response to some of the Pakistani fans' adverse reactions after Babar Azam and Co. beat New Zealand to advance to their first T20 World Cup final in 13 years. In addition to celebrating the win, a section of the Pakistani fans started to troll Indian cricket fans.
