Not Azhar Ali’s or Wahab Riaz’s fault.They tried their best but they don’t have the material to compete. We need better players #ENGvPAK

Deeply hurt not bcoz of d ‘understood’ result but the way Pak team hv made them a laughing stock. Who will rectify d mistakes, any messiah? — Aalia Rasheed (@aaliaaaliya) August 30, 2016
England team should accept defeat from Pak on humanitarian grounds.
Poor Azhar Ali is just too decent for the unabashed brutalities of modern-day limited overs cricket. He should’ve been on a vacation. — NadeemFarooqParacha (@NadeemfParacha) August 30, 2016

I saw a dream that Pakistan won yesterday’s match. It was a beautiful dream. And I just realized a few minutes ago that it was a dream.
