Australian Cricketers Are Worried Indian Fans Will Outnumber Theirs In The World Cup

And, of course, Indian fans are gleeful about it.

The captain of the Australian side took to Twitter to ask Australians to come out and root for their side when they face the reigning World champions this Wednesday.

Following Australia's victory against Pakistan in the quarter-finals, Clarke posted this tweet to his followers.

I call on all Australian cricket lovers to paint the SCG gold on Thursday. We need your support. #goldout

Indian fans have come out in full force to support their team from their very first match of this World Cup.

The scenes at India's matches in this World Cup are quite reminiscent of the overwhelming support the Men in Blue receive when they're playing at home.

70 % of the semi-final tickets have reportedly been bought by Indians, prompting Clarke's call to Aussie fans.

Bring your flags, shirts, hats. #goldout

Which means the 42,000 capacity Sydney Cricket Ground runs the chance of being completely awash in the blue colours of Team India on Wednesday.


Ironically, a majority of the responses to Clarke's tweet seem to be from Indian fans.

MClarke, Warner already running scared, asking the fans for moral support #CWC2015 #IndvsAus #GoGold #goldout indeed, and #bluein ha ha!

#goldout it self says the team has got scared by #BleedBlue #WeWontGiveItBack #cricketworldcup @MClarke23 @imVkohli

Sydney Cricket Ground will #BleedBlue on Semi Final, whereas Gold will phase out soon. So no #GoldOut to be possible. #CWC15 #IndvsAus


Some fans even called out the Aussie skipper on his choice of hashtag.

How can #goldout be a call for aussies to come and support the team! Shouldnt it be #goldin 😂 #WeWontGiveItBack
