Former England cricketer Nasser Hussain took to social media to ask Pakistani fans as to which team they would be supporting between England and India Cricket World Cup match as both the teams will meet on Sunday at Edgbaston.  

On his official Twitter handle, Hussain wrote, "Question to all Pakistan fans ...England vs India...Sunday... who are you supporting?" 

Two back to back defeats have left England's semi-final hopes hanging by a thread, now, England will lock horns with India in a must-win clash and after that, they will face New Zealand. 

After Pakistan's win over New Zealand on June 26, the scenario of England making it to the semi-finals has become even more difficult.

Pakistan have seven points from as many games and their two remaining games are against Afghanistan and Bangladesh. 

If manage to win both of them, they will end up on 11 points making it difficult for England as they need to win both their remaining fixtures to qualify for the semi-finals. 

Pakistani cricket fans were quick to reply to Hussain's tweet and came forward to support their "neighbours" India against England. 

Here are some of the replies:
