DG ISPR Asif Ghafoor tweeted twice about an Australian Batsman Usman Khuwaja after he made a century in one match and 91 in another match against India.
For all those who missed out on all the political colours of cricket this piece will walk you right through. So who is Usman Khuwaja and why did the DG tweet about him.
It all started as India was ready to face Australia on 8th March at Ranchi, India. Though sports shoudn’t be politicized, the Indian side decided to wear its Air force cap as a sign of solidarity in connection to the Abhi Nandan crash case in Pakistan. During the toss the Indian captain announced that they would also donate the match money to the Indian Air force while MS Dhoni distributed the air force caps to the Indian cricket team.
Ironically, a Pakistani born Australian batsman thrashed Indian bowlers all over the stadium scoring a century and pushing Australia to victory.
People started making memes saying that Usman Khuwaja is an ISI agent just like Adnan Sami. People also said that he has completed his degree in aviation and scored a century against India in a political match that was dedicated to the Indian Airforce
In the very next match at Mohali, the Indian team wore original uniform caps (blue) and scored 358 runs against Australia.
