Oops! Wikipedia declares Indian Women’s team as World Cup 2017 winners

It’s two days to go for the finals and Indian cricket team have already been declared as the winners of the ongoing ICC Women’s World Cup 2017. Yes! According to Wikipedia, Indian women’s cricket team are the winners of the World Cup 2017.

Wikipedia has always been a great source of information for all of us but the fact that anyone can go and edit the Wikipedia pages is very dangerous and has created a lot of trouble in the past. But the fact that Wikipedia pages can be edited makes it quite dangerous to be used without full research. And now they declared Indian women as the winners of the ongoing ICC Women’s World Cup 2017, two days before the final.

A day after the women’s team defeated Australia thanks to a sizzling century by Harmanpreet Kaur, someone went to Wikipedia and edited the “Women’s World Cup” article page. Now, it shows India as winners with England finishing runners up. However, the editors chose not to mention the margin of the win. The final is scheduled to take place on Sunday afternoon. England beat South Africa in the first semi-final and India beat Australia in the second semi-final to set up a clash at the Lord’s with India hoping to win the title for the very first time.
