Indian cricket team fans were left disheartened and disappointed after Asia Cup 2018 match between India and Afghanistan ended in a draw at the Dubai International stadium on September 25.
Many Indian cricketers like Skikhar Dhawan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar among others were left stunned after Ravindra Jadeja, when team India needed just 1 run off 2 balls with just 1 wicket remaining, failed to clear the boundary on the second last ball of the Indian innings and was caught by the fielder in the deep.
Besides players, there is one little Sikh fan of the Indian team who failed to hold back his tears and got emotional after India failed to win over Afghanistan.
The pictures of him has left social media in meltdown mode with many showered their love upon the little kid.

In the pictures we can see that his father tried to console him but to no avail as the kid couldn’t hold back his tears even after appearing on the big television screen on the ground.
Following the incident, India’s off-spinner Harbhajan Singh took to his Twitter handle to share a picture of the crying child and offered support by saying, “Koi na putt Rona Nahi hai final aapa jittange (Don’t cry child, we will win the final).”

Earlier, electing to bat, Afghanistan rode opener Mohammad Shahzad’s entertaining century and a sensible innings from Nabi to post a healthy 252/8 against a relatively inexperienced Indian attack.
Chasing a competitive 253, the defending champions got off to a flier from the new opening pair of Lokesh Rahul (60 off 66 balls; 4X5, 6X1) and Ambati Rayudu (57 off 49; 4X4, 6X4) before a mini collapse, coupled with a few run-outs and umpiring errors, eventually resulted in a tie.
