From ‘quitting as Pakistan cricket fan’ to ‘justice for Naseem’: Pakistan cricket fans distraught on defeat against India | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: As India staged a remarkable comeback to beat Pakistan by 6 runs at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York on Sunday, Pakistan cricket fans were left heartbroken, disappointed and distraught.
As Pakistan took the advantage by bowling out India for 119 in 19 runs, courtesy three wickets each by Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf and a two-wicket haul by Mohammad Amir, the Pakistanis were over the moon at their team’s position of strength flooding social media with ‘feel good’ messages of Pakistan’s victory.

But little did they know that India Jasprit Bumrah (3/14) and Hardik Pandya (2/24) would turn things on their head to ensure another defeat for Pakistan in World Cup competitions.

In the shortest format of cricket, the match on Sunday was the 13th meeting between the bitter rivals, with India emerging victorious in ten of those encounters.
As the match got underway, green spotlights lit up the sky, and Pakistani banners fluttered in the stands that bore the names of legendary players like Shoaib Akhtar and Imran Khan.
Before midnight, there were cheers, yells, and whistles during the early overs.
However, as Pakistan battled to chase down India’s 119 runs, a somber atmosphere gradually took over.
