Pakistan PM took a dig at India after the loss against England in the semi-finals and Irfan Pathan gave him a mouth shutting reply.
As we all know, India faced a very brutal heartbreaking defeat against England in the semi-final of the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 on Thursday. India lost to England by 10 wickets while 24 balls were remaining. This made England reach the finals and lift the trophy meanwhile India had to give up on its World Cup 2022 dream again.
India’s defeat in the semi-finals gave Pakistan PM Shehbaz Sharif a chance to take a dig at their neighbors. Pakistan’s PM made a tweet and tried to mock the Indian team.
Pakistan Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif took a dig at team India
After India’s heartbreaking semi-final loss against England in T20 World Cup 2022 Pakistan PM Tweeted,
“So, this Sunday, it’s 152/0 vs 170/0 #T20WorldCup.”
So, this Sunday, it’s:
152/0 vs 170/0
🇵🇰 🇬🇧 #T20WorldCup

According to the tweet, the 152/0 signifies India’s 10-wicket defeat against Pakistan in last year’s T20 World Cup. On the other hand, 170/0 was the score via which England won against India on Thursday.
This tweet went viral on social media platforms. Moreover, Pakistan skipper Babar Azam was also asked, if the tweet by their PM puts pressure on the team. To the question he replied,
“No I don’t think there’s any added pressure, basically, sorry to say I haven’t seen this tweet so far, and I have no knowledge of this, but there is no added pressure, we only try to give our best no matter the opposition.”
For such a controversial tweet Pakistan’s PM received a lot of backlashes. Be it Indian cricket fans or former Indian cricketers, everyone gave a mouth-shutting reply to Pakistan PM in their way.
Former Indian Cricketer Irfan Pathan gave a befitting reply to Shehbaz Sharif’s tweet
On Sunday, during the England VS Pakistan final, former Indian pacer Pathan took to Twitter and gave a befitting reply to Shehbaz Sharif’s controversial tweet. Irfan replied saying,
“Aap mein or hum mein fark yehi hai. Hum apni khushi se khush or aap dusre ke taklif se. Is liye khud ke mulk ko behtar karne pe dhyan nahi hai. (This is the difference between us. We are happy with our happiness, and you get happy with others’ loss. That is why you can’t focus on improving your own nation.)”

Indian Cricket commentator Aakash Chopra also gave a subtle reply to Shehbaz’s tweet saying,
“Growing old is mandatory. Growing Up is optional.”
Yesterday, England beat Pakistan by 5 wickets in the finale of the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground and became the world T20 Champions. A lot of people targeted Pak PM as Pakistan couldn’t lift the trophy this time as well.
