Misleading Indian Media:
Indian media is like a knife hanging on your head. They pressurize the players by making stupid headlines just to gain ratings. Indian media is seriously doing no good for their country by spreading hate and using sensitive language. They usually manipulate the statements of Pakistani people and sports analysts and use them for their own good. Indian media mislead their audience to another extent. After getting wrong information from their media, Indians burst their anger on social media by using abusive language or by threatening the players. Some crazy fans also visit airports just to humiliate players coming back to their country after losing. All that we learn from all this is that cricket is just a game not a battle of life one has to win and one has to lose so take it easy and show some sportsman spirit.
