A section of social media held Big B 'responsible' for India's six-wicket loss. While Bachchan was showering a heartwarming appreciation message for the 'men in blue', a social media user commented, "You had said that whenever you watch a match, the team loses, then you did not want to take risks in the World Cup." For the unversed, the social media user was referring to Bachchan's earlier comment where he had revealed that the Indian team seems to have a better chance of winning when he doesn't watch matches.
