Dragged into controversy for hinting towards that India lost deliberately to England in World Cup 2019 match in order to knock out archrivals Pakistan out of the event, England all-rounder Ben Stokes has come out and said that he never has said so.

In his new book ‘On Fire’, being published by Headline Books and distributed by Hachette India, the cricketer analysed all of England’s games in the tournament, but his analysis of the match against India has garnered much attention on social media.

While addressing the encounter against India, Stokes wrote that “there was little or no intent from Dhoni” in the match, and described the partnership between Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli as “mystifying”.

Former Pakistan bowler Sikander Bakht, on Twitter, claimed that Stokes has written in his book that India lost intentionally to England to remove Pakistan from the World Cup. The left-handed batsman has denied the claims on social media and called the suggestions as “click bait”.

In response to Bakht’s tweet, a Twitter used asked where has Stokes made such comments. In response to the user’s question, Stokes himself replied: “You won’t find it cause I have never said it… it’s called “twisting of words” or “click bait”.”
