During their clash in the 2023 Cricket World Cup last Saturday, the Pakistani cricket team suffered a decisive loss at the hands of India.
Under the leadership of Rohit Sharma, India secured a convincing 7-wicket victory.
The encounter between these cricketing giants drew fervent Indian fans, and the home team certainly didn’t disappoint. India’s precise bowling limited Pakistan to a mere 191 runs. Rohit Sharma’s aggressive batting in the chase eased the pressure on the scoreboard, and Shreyas Iyer’s remarkable half-century sealed the deal. The home team clinched the win with 117 balls to spare.
While Pakistan has lost just one of its three World Cup matches, doubts persist about their prospects of advancing to the next round. Pakistan’s path now requires them to reach at least the semifinals to potentially face India once again. Interestingly, Pakistani actress Sehar Shinwari is placing her bet on Bangladesh to avenge Pakistan’s loss when they face India this Thursday.
Sehar Shinwari, the Pakistani actress, had this to say if the team secures a victory over India in the 2023 Cricket World Cup showdown on Thursday:
To express her confidence in the India vs. Bangladesh match, Pakistani actress Sehar Shinwari recently made her sentiments known on a social media platform. On platform X (formerly known as Twitter), she pledged to have a date with a member of the Bangladesh cricket team in the event of their victory over India in the upcoming World Cup match.
InshAllah my Bangali Bandu will avenge us in the next match. I will go to Dhaka and have a fish dinner date with Bangali boy if their team managed to beat India.”
Of Course, Her Statement didn’t sit well with Indian fans
Consequently, Indian fans began relentlessly teasing her. Since then, her post has gained widespread attention on social media, with numerous individuals mocking it. While some brought up the 1971 Bangladesh Liberation War, others poked fun at the Pakistani actress for her intense focus on Indian matches.
Meanwhile, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has lodged formal complaints with the International Cricket Council (ICC) on several matters. This was disclosed in a social media announcement made on Tuesday.
As per the statement, the PCB has registered official protests with the ICC regarding the absence of a visa policy for Pakistani World Cup 2023 attendees, along with delays in visa issuance for Pakistani media personnel. The PCB has also expressed concerns about the ill-mannered treatment aimed at the Pakistan team during the India vs. Pakistan match held on October 14, 2023.
