Pakistani and former cricketers fans were disappointed with their team after Afghanistan defeated the Men In Green by eight wickets in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Monday.
Chasing 283 to win, Afghanistan rode on the back of impressive innings from Ibrahim Zadran (87), Rahmat Shah (77 not out), Rahmanullah Gurbaz (65), and skipper Hashmatullah Shahidi (48 not out) to reach their target with six balls to spare.
Afghanistan, who stunned defending champions England earlier in the tournament, and Pakistan both now have two wins and three losses from their five group games.
Some fans said the Babar Azam-led side does not deserve to be in the top 4, while others believe that the Men In Green cannot come back after this defeat.
This was also Afghanistan’s first win against Pakistan in the World Cup, with the score now standing at 7-1.
Let’s see how fans responded to the embarrassing defeat:
