Islamabad, July 12 (IBNS): India's loss against New Zealand in the Cricket World Cup semifinal has made room for former Pakistan skipper Waqar Younis to take a dig at the men-in-blue.

After India crashed out of the tournament by losing to the Kiwis by 18 runs, Younis tweeted, "Such a brutal game this Cricket and a great leveller... Bites you back when you are expecting the least #CWC19 I learnt a great lesson today “Never Abuse The Game” #INDvsNZL"

Younis' reaction can be traced back to his anger against India which were accused by the former skipper of showing "lack of sportsmanship" during England match.

"It's not who you are.. What you do in life defines who you are.. Me not bothered if Pakistan gets to the semis or not but one thing is for sure.. Sportsmanship of few Champions got tested and they failed badly" Younis had said in a tweet.

At that time, Pakistan's road to semifinal were dependent heavily on India's win against England. As Virat Kohli's men were overpowered by the English cricketers, Pakistan were out of the tournament straightaway.
