Recently, the excerpts from Ben Stokes’ book, ON FIRE, has caught a public eye. The book came after the termination of the ICC World Cup 2019 and the incident of Balakot had already happened. Pakistan and India were not on good terms and some fans and writers misused the statements and fumed the news terming that Ben Stokes in his book said that India deliberately lost to England to hatch a plot against Pakistan.
However, Ben has denied the allegations against him and said that it is written nowhere. England’s cricketer cleared that terming Virat’s statement over 59-metres boundary as bizarre does not mean to term an opened conspiracy between India and Pakistan. The fans and the experts have made false connections and deduced that India conspired against Pakistan.
The social media is full of the statements according to which Ben has questioned India’s batsmen, especially Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and MS Dhoni for their no intent to win the game.
“The way Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli played was mystifying. I know that we bowled brilliantly well during this period, but the way they went about their batting just seemed bizarre. They allowed their team to get so far behind the game. They showed no desire to put any pressure back onto our team, content instead to just drift along, a tactic that was clearly playing into our hands.” Stokes added, who played a key role in England’s successful World Cup campaign.

A fan on a social media questioned that where Ben Stokes has said that India lost deliberately to England in the semifinals of the ICC T20 World Cup and Ben replied that one cannot find it as he has never said that.
You won’t find it cause I have never said it… it’s called “twisting of words” or “clickbait”
