Satire: Who is Responsible for India’s World Cup Loss? Nehru!
Video Editor: Purnendu Pritam and Varun Sharma
Who’s the man behind India’s loss against New Zealand at the World Cup semi-finals?
It’s none other than Jawaharlal Nehru, our first prime minister. Had Nehru not committed the grave mistakes he did, Kohli would be holding the World Cup not a tea cup.
Some of Nehru’s mistakes include:
- The Partition, which Nehru went forward with. If only Nehru had refused, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan would have been one. The best players from the three teams would have played together and definitely defeated New Zealand.
- If not for IITs and IIMs, people would have focused more on cricket and helped the country to nurture more great talents, who would have made the country proud instead of struggling to get into IITs and IIMs.
- Nehru committed a grave mistake in 1926, when he let India, New Zealand and West Indies be included in ICC. Had he objected to New Zealand's entry, we wouldn't have had to be humiliated on the field.
- Had New Zealand been a part of India, we wouldn’t have had to play against them at all.
