The uncertainty over Pakistan’s semi-final hopes
The equation for Pakistan to reach the semi-finals has become incredibly challenging. They must either defeat England by a margin of 275 runs or successfully chase the target in a mere 2.3 overs. As a sense of disappointment envelops Pakistan’s fans, the cricketing world has witnessed a surge of trolling directed at Pakistan for their reliance on other teams’ outcomes.
In the midst of this, India’s cricketing legend Virender Sehwag also took a humorous yet cutting jab at the Pakistan cricket team, whose semi-final aspirations are now hanging by a thread. Sehwag’s witty post quickly went viral on the internet, eliciting laughter from cricket enthusiasts worldwide.

But Sehwag didn’t stop there. In another tweet, he added a layer of irony, stating, “Pakistan ki khaas baat hai ki jis team ko Pakistan support karti hai, woh team Pakistan ki tarah khelne lagti hai. Sorry Sri Lanka,” which translates to “The special thing about Pakistan is that the team it supports starts playing like Pakistan.”
