Pakistan was crushed by India in a crucial game Sunday at the World Cup, losing by 89 runs after a rain-shortened match. While there was plenty for India to cheer about (Rohit Sharma’s century, Vijay Shankar and Hardik Pandya putting up commendable performances, Kuldeep Yadav’s bowling), there was little for Pakistani fans to cheer for apart from Mohammad Amir’s bowling perhaps.
And as Indians flooded social media with messages congratulating the team and celebrating the victory, Pakistan fans were able to find some humour in defeat as well.
Of course, there were jokes about Sarfaraz Ahmed’s yawn, and one Indian cricket fan put together a list of tweets from Pakistan that were absolutely scathing:
We might be winning the match but Pakistanis totally won on Twitter today!! 😁😁

Don’t call me a traitor, but look at the Indian players, they look like proper athletes, our players look like they’ve eaten two plates of waris nihari with feeqay ki lassi and benazir kulfa, all at once.

Given Pakistan’s loss from India today I am sure #ISPR must be thinking of inducting military men in cricket team and holding an inquiry of the current team
