Cricket fans from across the globe are suspecting recently coiled up Ind vs Afg match as a fixed game. Twitter and other social forum trends as they feel Afghans deliberately threw away the game to the Indians.
Notably, there was no logical possibility for India to qualify for the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 semifinal after losing with heavy margins against Pakistan and New Zealand sequentially. But, sealing a 66-run victory vs Afghanistan has pretty much polished their chances to be in the semifinal. With the next two games scheduled against Scotland and Namibia, cricket fans say impossible has been made possible.
Afghanistan, on winning the toss, opted to bowl first and conceded the event’s highest target of 211 runs. Mohammad Nabi’s bowlers looked faulty to many as Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Hardik Pandya, and Rishabh Pant rained off sixes and fours all across the ground.
A user Tweeted a video in which the fielder was consciously seen throwing the ball away towards the boundary rather than stopping it. It is the first point where cricket fans have suspected a foul play.
Was Ind vs Afg fixed?

Not only the common fellows, but the journalists have come forward with a similar synopsis. People believe, to save their IPL contracts, Afghans did not have any option, but to accept cash and lose the match.
This is how a fixed match look like. Body language says it all. Shame on you! #INDvsAFG #fixed#fixing #fixerkings #fixedmatch pic.twitter.com/5SsbO8mBr0

The fans demand to the International Cricketers Council (ICC) to investigate the matter.
Shaved off grass
Put into bat
Pick up ball & throw to boundary
Loose deliveries – on repeat@ICC – you've got to investigate for a possibility of #Fixed match! Might as well give India the NRR without playing. Disappointed by #Afghanistan What a shame!
