Scotland wicketkeeper Matthew Cross was caught on the stump-mic, reminding his fellow teammate and bowler Chris Greaves that entire India is backing him during the match against New Zealand in the ongoing ICC Men’s T20 World Cup at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Wednesday. Cross’ statement came in connection with team India’s chances to qualify into the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup 2021 if Scotland would have won against New Zealand. India lost both of its opening matches and have left with almost zero chances to qualify into the semis. Technically, India’s future lies in the hands of the opposite teams.
During the 7th over of the match, the Scotland wicket-keeper was caught on the stump-mic, saying, “Come on Greavo, whole India is behind you,” to bowler Chris Greaves.
