Mohammed Shami loses cool over 'Baap Kaun Hai' taunts

Why Indian cricket supporters must remember to applaud Pakistan in the final

Why Indian cricket supporters must remember to applaud Pakistan in the final

Meanwhile, the uncouth Pakistani fan could be heard cribbing how Indian player are not sporty enough to such comments while Pakistan hears such statements with patience.

This is Pakistan's first ICC title triumph since their 2009 World Twenty20 win but more importantly it broke the jinx of not performing against India in big ticket matches.

Following India's defeat at the hands of Pakistan in the finals of the ICC Champions Trophy, where Sarfraz Ahmed and co beat Virat Kohli's boys by 180 runs at The Oval, Pakistani fans began taunting Indian players as they made their way to the pavilion.

ASSOCHAM demands postponement of GST rollout
Companies will have to file sale invoice for August with the GST Network by September 20 instead of September 10 earlier. The Council also raised the ceiling on room rent for AC hotels in the 28 per cent tax bracket from Rs5,000 to Rs7,500.

While others remained calm, Indian pacer Mohammed Shami did not like the taunts and moved towards Pakistani fans to give an answer to his remark.

However, had Dhoni not come in between and pulled the player back, the situation could have turned ugly, and garnered off-field controversy.

He further went on to mock the players by repeatedly asking "baap kaun hai". Several celebrities like former India cricketer and current commentator Virender Sehwag as well as Bollywood actor Rishi Kapoor had mocked Pakistan's poor record in ICC events against India and had used the father analogy to put their point through. The fan could be heard saying offensive phrases such as "Akkad toot gayi Kohli (Your pride has been broken Kohli)", "Rone ki aadat hai (You have a habit of crying)". Though India had lost to Pakistan in Champions Trophy 2017 two times in the history of the tournament before the final. And that has not gone down too well with the Pakistani fans.
