Here’s what Tharoor says about the loss to England


New Delhi: Congressman Shashi Tharoor on Thursday responded to India’s defeat by England in the T20 World Cup semi-finals.

Hitting first, the Indian team scored 168 throws, chased the goal, hit England hard and won 10 wickets in only 16 times.

Responding to the defeat, Tharoor said he wouldn’t mind losing, but he wouldn’t mind India not attending today.

“I don’t mind losing India: victory and defeat are part of the sport. But I don’t mind India not showing up today,” the Congress leader tweeted.

Tharoor’s reaction came as England chased a goal 169 times without losing a small gate in 16 increases in the Adelaide Oval.

India fought first strikes and scored 168 for six after Virat Kohli for 40 balls and 50 and Hardik Pandya for 33 balls 63.
