Cricket fans react to Pakistan’s narrow defeat against India in the Asia Cup 2022 match played on Sunday at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

In a sensational clash, India beat Pakistan by five wickets with 2 balls remaining.

Hardik Pandya starred with bat and ball to lead India to a five-wicket win over Pakistan in a last-over.

While chasing 148 for victory, Ravindra Jadeja hit 35, and Pandya remained unbeaten on 33, putting on a key fifth-wicket partnership of 52 sailing India to achieve the target with two balls to spare.

Pakistan open batter Mohammed Rizwan remained the top-scorer for his side with a calm 43 off 42 balls.

The Green Team, without its key paceman Shaheen Shah Afridi, gave a debut to fast bowler Naseem Shah and also preferred Shahnawaz Dahani over fast bowler Mohammad Hasnain in the team.

Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan, Fakhar Zaman, Iftikhar Ahmed, and Khushdil Shah were least impressive with the bat as they failed to read short balls and threw their wickets cheaply.

On the fourth delivery of the third over of the innings, Babar Azam hocked a short ball to short fine leg where Arshdeep Singh took an easy catch off Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

Netizens came out in support after the early departure of the world’s top batter.


After all, its was India day to celebrate the good performance on the field!

The fitness troubles of Pakistani cricketers become a major issue for the squad’s management during Asia Cup 2022.

However, players have gained massive respect for their efforts on the field.
