In a dramatic turn of events during the India-Afghanistan ICC World Cup 2023 match in Delhi, former Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh had a quick and witty response to former England captain Michael Vaughan’s observation of empty seats in the stadium.

Vaughan had taken to social media, particularly X (formerly known as Twitter), to express his surprise at the noticeable number of empty seats in the stadium during the India vs. Afghanistan game. His tweet read, “Why so many empty seats in #Delhi for the India Game !??? #INDvsAFG.”

Harbhajan’s reply

Harbhajan Singh, a two-time World Cup champion, wasted no time in responding to Vaughan’s comment, firing back with a clever retort, “Are u watching the game or empty seats ??”

The presence of empty seats in cricket stadiums, particularly during major events like the ICC World Cup, has been a subject of discussion on social media. Notably, the 2023 World Cup opener at the Narendra Modi Stadium, featuring England and New Zealand, witnessed a sparse turnout. However, when it comes to India’s matches, the stadiums have been packed to capacity, reflecting the enormous popularity of cricket in the country.

In the IND vs AFG 2023 World Cup match, Afghanistan’s captain Hashmatullah Shahidi won the toss and chose to bat first. Afghanistan posted a total of 272/8 in their 50 overs, with Shahid leading the way, scoring 80 runs off 88 balls, which included four sixes and two boundaries. Azmatullah Omarzai also contributed with 62 runs off 69 balls, with four sixes and two boundaries. The two combined for a 121-run partnership for the fourth wicket.

India’s Jasprit Bumrah delivered an outstanding performance with the ball, claiming four wickets for 39 runs, while Hardik Pandya secured two wickets. Shardul Thakur and Kuldeep Yadav also chipped in with one wicket each.

In response, India won the match by 8 wickets. India emerged victorious in their previous World Cup match against Australia, winning by six wickets, thanks to a brilliant performance from KL Rahul (97) and Virat Kohli (85).

As the ICC World Cup 2023 continues, cricket enthusiasts can anticipate more thrilling encounters, heated discussions, and, of course, the passionate support of fans around the world.
