In a cricket-crazy country like India, where the entire nation is glued to television screens these days because of the ongoing ICC World Cup tournament, a match getting cancelled because of rains hurts a lot. Sharing the sentiment of the country, Amitabh Bachchan wants the tournament to be shifted to India.
After the India vs New Zealand match was declared canceled, frustrated Indian cricket fans began venting out their anger on Twitter and most of them blamed it on the ICC. The hashtag #ShameOnICC trended on Twitter for the entire day.
Replying to one such tweet, Amitabh Bachchan demanded a change in venue for the tournament. He wanted it to be held in India but not just because he wants to watch the matches in the country but also to get rains and get respite from the scorching heat.
