PAK vs ZIM: ‘Pakistan Qualifies for Karachi Airport…’, This is how people are enjoying Babur’s Army

Perth: Performing better than their stature at the international level, Zimbabwe defeated Pakistan by one run in a thrilling match of the T20 World Cup on Thursday. Zimbabwe defended the target of 131 runs well and the Pakistani batsmen took wickets at regular intervals allowing the opposition to score 129 runs for eight wickets. Pakistan-born all-rounder Sikandar Raza turned the tide of the match in the middle overs, taking three wickets for 25 runs in his four overs which included the wickets of Shaan Masood (44 runs), Shadab Khan (17 runs) and Hyder Ali.

As soon as Pakistan lost, Karachi started trending on Twitter. People started saying that now Pakistan team has qualified for Karachi Airport. That is, the Pakistan team is out of the World Cup (not fully confirmed yet). Along with this, people have also started sharing memes. Pakistan fans can hardly digest such a defeat as India’s exit is almost certain after losing to Zimbabwe.

Right-arm fast bowler Brad Evans took two wickets for 25 runs while Blessing Mujerbani (1 wicket for 18 runs) and Luke Jongwe (1 wicket for 10 runs) also led their team to victory. This is Pakistan’s second defeat in two matches, having suffered a four-wicket loss to arch-rivals India in another thrilling encounter. This is Zimbabwe’s first win in two matches.

The African team shared points in a match against South Africa which was canceled due to rain. For the second time in the tournament, Pakistan’s star batsmen Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan failed to get off to a good start. Evans dismissed captain Babar completely. Along with this, Iftikhar Ahmed, who scored a half-century against India, could not stay at the crease for long, due to which Pakistan’s score became 36 runs for three wickets in 7.4 overs. But Shaan Masood stood at one end and put on a 52-run partnership for the fourth wicket with Shadab Khan to propel Pakistan’s innings.

Leg-spinner all-rounder Raza took two wickets in the 14th over as Zimbabwe got back into the match with three consecutive wickets. Pakistan scored 94 runs for six wickets in 15.1 overs. Nawaz (22 runs) along with Wasim kept Pakistan in the running. With this, the team needed 11 runs in the last over. Nawaz scored three runs and then took a four off Evans’ slower ball. But Evans made a brilliant comeback and took the wicket of Nawaz on the fifth ball of the last over with three runs to go off the last ball. Shaheen Shah Afridi was run out on the last ball and the score was leveled, giving Zimbabwe the win.
