Just minutes after Pakistan won match against England and finally reached Champions Trophy final, Indian actor Paresh Rawal had to delete his tweet that predicted ouster of Pakistani cricket team.
Apparently embarrassed, the actor was forced to delete the tweet after the twitteratis began trolling him for predicting the team’s defeat incorrectly. Rawal had sarcastically remarked that Pakistan’s cricket team would have to leave for Lahore airport on June 13.
The link to the deleted tweet says the page doesn’t exist anymore: https://twitter.com/sirpareshrawal/status/871563572446470144
Social media was abuzz with the screenshots of the deleted tweet as people began to take jibes at the actor for his jingoistic prediction that proved false.

The Green Shirts tremendous win ensures a final berth in the mega event where they await the winner of the second semi-final between India and Bangladesh at Edgbaston on Thursday (tomorrow).
This is not the first that Paresh Rawal has had to eat his words. Last month, the actor was forced to delete his tweet by Twitter itself after he had posted a jingoistic tirade against the writer Arundhati Roy. He was immediately slammed by people – including celebrities – for stooping so down to tarnish his own reputation in the industry. The actor is also affiliated with the ruling party, BJP.
