In an attempt to cheer up team India, Amitabh Bachchan took to Twitter to share some of the achievements the team had scored. Still hoping to get into the semifinals if Afghanistan had won, the Bollywood star’s tweet became the talk of twitter after New Zealand beat Afghanistan, kicking India out of the tournament.
T 4088 – Irrespective of what the results of tomorrow's NZ v AFG game are in the T20 ICC World Cup ..
remember this .. we have scored the highest total , till date , in the tournament ; KL Rahul made the fastest 50 ; and we defeated the opposing team, in a record 6+ overs ..🇮🇳

With their match against Namibia today, India will still not be able to qualify for the semi-finals if they win. Mentioning the achievements in his tweet, Amitabh Bachchan also reminded people how KL Rahul holds the record for fastest 50 in the tournament, but that too was replaced by Shoaib Malik who managed to score 54 runs in 18 balls and netizens have got no chill!
You forgot to mention, India also achieved a defeat by 10 wickets. No other team in this tournament managed to achieve such an overwhelming defeat. Congratulations!
Sorry but you just walked right into that 😂 https://t.co/zdP7HfI9uc

So, Shoaib’s 50 >>> KL Rahul’s 50:
But KL Rahul made the fifty in powerplay while Shoaib Malik's whole innings was based outside the powerplay with fielders spread out everywhere. Malik hit 6 sixes as compared to 3 of Rahul. Malik scored 54 off 18 while KL Rahul scored 50 off 18.
Shoaib Malik > KL Rahul https://t.co/BFySBlEhit

Harbhajan Singh asked for a walkover from Pakistan and India got thrashed. Amitabh Bachchan bragged about KL Rahul’s fastest 50 and it got replaced by Malik.

All the other celebrities and political leaders delete their old tweets so people don't dig up stuff like pakis do with Imran khan, this poor guy can't even do that if he ever finds himself in such a situation, it'll just mess up his numbering system. https://t.co/C2FTl5Y6yM
