It has been a one-way traffic so far in the India vs Pakistan World Cup matches, as the former now have a 7-0 record as far as World Cup matches are concerned. Thus, the 7th successive defeat did not go down well with the Pakistani fans, and they made sure that they hurled their filthiest swears at them after the defeat.

It is worth mentioning that Pakistan (barring one brief period) never looked like bettering their Indian counterparts at any point in the game in all the three departments. Barring Fakhar Zaman (62 off 75) and Mohammad Amir(10-1-47-3) with the bat and ball respectively, no other player could even match the skill sets exhibited on the field by the Indians.

How did the angry Pakistani fans react?

As is customary after the end of a match, after the handshakes and congratulatory greetings by both the teams, the angry Pakistani fans near the Pakistan dressing room were still waiting in the stands will all the worst possible filth and swears waiting to be puked at their national team players.

Thus, the moment they started heading towards their dug out, the unfortunate moment had arrived and the angry fans were all over the team like a rash. The last batting pair of the all-rounder Imad Wasim and Shadab Khan were the first to face the heat. The fans were repeatedly hurling their swears in the Hindi, Urdu and Punjabi languages. They were repeatedly mocking their players whilst repeatedly questioning them- “Koi sharm hai tum logon mein?” (Do you people have any shame?)

The players had no other option but to bow their heads down and keep heading for the long walk towards the pavilion.

Shoaib Malik received the maximum heat

The fans were continuously demanding the Pakistan all-rounder Shoaib Malik to come out of the dressing room. Malik has had a forgetful World Cup so far with scores of 8, 0, and 0 in the three matches he has played.

He was infact Out on a Golden Duck against India on Sunday. The fans expected their experienced campaigner to bring out his best, especially against India. As a result fans were heard screaming on top of their voices. “Malik ko bahar nikalo” (Bring Malik out) is what was continuous being heard in the video.

Even when their coach Mickey Arthur was heading towards the dressing room they requested the same to him in the English language. The game which is popularly known as the ‘Gentlemen’s game’ in popular parlance, applies even to the fans as well. There are very few occasions when India and Pakistan rub their shoulders due to reasons which we are well versed with.

Thus, when rare moments like a Cricket match is being played between the two neighbours, one should cherish it, alike how the players of the two nations did in Sunday’s encounter.
