Scotland wicket-keeper Matt Cross won the hearts of Indian fans on Wednesday as he was heard telling bowler ‘Chris Greaves that the ‘Whole of India is behind you.’ The incident happened during the ongoing T20 World Cup clash between Scotland and New Zealand.

After India lost to New Zealand on Sunday, their chances of making in to the semi-final are hanging by a thread and out of their hands. Virat Kohli’s side needs some other result to go their way in order to have any hope of qualifying for the semi-final.

One of the things India needs to happen is for New Zealand to lose at least one of their remaining games. Scotland keeper Cross was well aware of the scenario and was heard telling Chris Greaves during the 8th over of the Black Caps’ innings that, “Cmon Greavo, whole of India is behind you here.”
