New Delhi: While the 2017 Australian Open final between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal was one of the most anticipated sports matches in India, it seems that wasn’t quite the case with Pakistan.
Former Pakistani cricket, Ramiz Raja branded his nation as sports unfriendly as none of their channels telecast the epic finale between two legends of Tennis.
Unbelievable: We are such a sports unfriendly nation that no channel showed the iconic Federer Nadal Australian Open final..shameful ..

Ramiz Raja’s tweet soon became a subject of trolls for twitterati and some hilarious tweets were unleashed.
@iramizraja So true Ramiz bhai. That is when we’v channels who r always bragging about the broadcasting rights. Ind-Eng series also missed.

सीमा पर किसी भारतीय बच्चे की गेंद भी पाकिस्तान की तरफ़ आ जाती तो आपका मीडिया जरूर बोलता ‘हिंदुस्तानी घुसपैठियों ने सीमा पर हथगोले फेंके’। https://t.co/eBZU5NzoEp
