Celebrities react after Pakistan’s dismal loss against Windies in World Cup


Pakistan cricket team’s disastrous loss in their World Cup opener against West Indies on Friday invited criticism by fans and even celebrities who took to Twitter to share their disappointment.

Film and television actor, Adnan Malik, asked what exactly went wrong with the team and how will they pick up from here after a demoralising defeat. He even went onto question if Pakistan would have been a more consistent team if they had not won the 1992 World Cup miraculously.

Meanwhile, actor and director Hamza Ali Abbasi pretended that the first match against Windies didn’t count. He joked and said we are starting from the next one.

Entertainer Fakhr-e-Alam shared a poll on Twitter inquiring the reason for Pakistan’s poor batting in particular; “Short pitch bowling, mental block, World Cup pressure, Roza lag raha thaa?”

However, there were a few like actors Shaan Shahid and Faysal Qureshi who rallied behind the team despite last night’s loss. Shaan reiterated that the nation stands by its heroes no matter what hence when they fall, we must pick them up.

Before the men in green kicked off their World Cup journey, many celebrities tweeted to show their support for them including the likes of Hareem Farooq, Mawra Hocane, Farhan Saeed and Fahad Mustafa.

Pakistan will play hosts England in their second match of the tournament on June 3rd at Trent Bridge in Nottingham.
