Pakistan celebrities taunted New Zealand with the term “security” in social media posts after Green Shirts’ five-wicket victory in the T20 World Cup group stage fixture on Tuesday.
The term “security” refers to the reason cited by New Zealand for pulling out from its Pakistan tour moments before it was due to start.
Here’s what the actors had to say after the match on their Twitter accounts.
