Sharif on Thursday posted on Twitter about the teams for Sunday’s final in Melbourne, referring to India’s one-sided defeat and their 10-wicket loss to Pakistan in the Super League stage of last year’s T20 World Cup. The Pakistan PM had tweeted, “So, this Sunday will see the final between 152/0 vs 170/0 (Pakistan & England).”
The post immediately went viral and Sharif faced criticism for his tweet. But it did not end here. The final of the T20 World Cup will be played between Pakistan and England at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Sunday. Just a day before this, on Saturday, Irrfan took a dig at Sharif’s tweet.
Irfan Pathan advises Sharif to focus on his country
Irrfan tweeted, “That’s the difference between you and us. We are happy with our happiness and you are happy with the suffering of others. Don’t you care about the betterment of your own country. This is the difference between you and us. We are happy with ourselves, you look for happiness when others are in trouble. That’s why you are not paying attention to the welfare of your country.”
Babar Azam shrugs off his PM’s tweet
Earlier in the day, Pakistan captain Babar Azam was also asked about the tweet during the pre-match press conference in Melbourne whether such social media posts create more pressure on the team. Babar, however, said he had not seen the tweet.
Babar said, “No pressure as such. But sorry I didn’t see this tweet, so I am not aware of it. But yes we try to give our best against other team.”
