Pakistani cricket fans sat with mixed emotions on the 13th November in the T20 world cup final, hoping to see history repeat itself after the men in green qualified for the finals for the first time in 13 years. But even reaching the finals was a big accomplishment for us, and fans are proud of their team as always!
The T20 World Cup final between Pakistan and England deserved a lot of shock and excitement, comparisons to the 92 World Cup (while ignoring 2009’s win), a gazillion memes, and a generous helping of positivity.
What really happened on the pitch?
When star pacer Shaheen Afridi walked off the field with a knee injury near the end of the run-chase, Pakistan suffered a significant setback. The lanky pacer could only bowl 2.1 overs
Despite India’s humiliating semifinal loss to England, Pakistanis had high hopes for the Green Shirts. While their batting was disappointing, their bowling attack more than compensated. The exit of Shaheen Shah Afridi, according to netizens, was the game’s turning point.
The love and support for Shaheen Shah Afridi
Despite losing to England in the T20 World Cup 2022 grand final, netizens and cricket community applauds Pakistan’s efforts.
Not just that, the love for Naseem Shah was indescribable on Twitter!

Tum jeetou ya haarou suno, humey tumse pyaar hai!
We just hope and pray for Shaheen’s quick recovery and we also hope that the player is not taking it too hard on himself.
